Immense Army of Nearly Million Men Practically Surrounded on Eastern Battle Line—Desperate Efforts
to Withstand Steady Advance of Russians.
London, June 3.—News of the
utter rout of the Germans along
the German-Russian line across
the San river is daily expected.
The Germans have a million men
concentrated at this point, with
but a seven-mile strip of territory connecting them with their
base of supplies still in their control. The Russians are fast hemming them in. A despatch frbm
Petrograd says that the only alternatives facing the German
army in the East are an altogether improbable brilliant success or complete disaster.
Premysl Again in
Hands of Austrians
Vienna, June 3. -The Galician
city of Premysl was captured by
the Austrians yesterday. The
capture of the city came after a
tremendously heavy bombardment lasting over three weeks.
Three G.T.P. Men
Killed in Action
Mayor Gillett Withdraws
Threat of Resignation
Almost  Compelled  by   Friends
and Supporters to Retain
Office, He States.
Word has just reached here of
the death of three well-known
Canadians formerly in the employ of the G.T.P. in this section.
Thos. J. Brennan, lance-corporal, First liattalion Canadian
contingent, killed in action. He
was a brother of Mrs. Thompson
of McBride.
W. W. Wilson, killed in action,
was formerly G.T.P. watchman
at Mile 127.
Frank Day, killed in action,
was formerly a brakeman between this point and McBride.
Sweden No Longer
Afraid of Muscovites
"In the event of the Scandinavian countries being forced into
the war, Sweden would undoubtedly act with Norway and Denmark on the side of the Allies,"
stated Dr. T. H. Mortemsen, of
the University ot Copenhagen,
who was in Vancouver recently.
"The original fear that Sweden
would act with Germany on account of her long distrust of
Russia is now without foundation, I believe. Russia no longer
has any motive for wishing to
seize the northern part of the
Scandinavian peninsula, as her
great ambition to get an outlet
to the sea is being solved at Con-
stan tinople. Denmark, of course,
can never forget Germany's seizure of Schleswig-Holstein, and in
addition we sympathize with
Britain because Queen Alexandra
is a Dane."
Sir Richard Returns Soon
Victoria, June 3.—Hon, W. J.
Bowser has received a cable from
Sir Richard McBride, who is in
London, conveying the information that the premier, who had
intended sailing on May 26th,
will leave the metropolis at the
end of this week.
As a result of the resolution
brought in by the council at a
meeting of the mayor and aldermen in the temporary city hall
last Monday afternoon, Mayor
Gillett stated that before he
would allow the station site question to be settled in any other
way than by.the taking of a
plebescite, he would resign his
position as mayor of Prince
George. He gave notice that he
would excercise his right to veto
any resolution asking the railway
commissioners to instruct the
G. T. P. Railway Company to
place their new depot at the foot
of George Street.
Mayor Gillett took his stand on
the grounds that he had promised
the electors before election to
take up the matter of a station
at once and would put the matter
to a vote of the people. He stated
that it was his intention to carry
out everything he had promised
prior to election.
As a body representing the
electors of the city, it would be
thought that the council's opinions regarding affairs of this kind
would be the expression of the
people's wishes, and that any
plans agreed upon by a majority
of the board would suit the elec
Since the passing by the coun
cil of the resolution asking that
the station be placed at the foot
of George Street has shown that
it is intended to have the station
placed their if possible, it is
thought and hoped that no more
objections will be raised in this
Contrary to some expectations,
Mayor Gillett has decided to retain office. At the meeting of the
board on Tuesday evening the
mayor stated that he had been
urged and almost compelled by
his supporters to retain office.
The plunging of the city into
another election would mean
great loss of time and funds, at
a time when time and funds
should be used in other ways.
As a result of the misunderstanding between the mayor and
some of the members of the
council, the mayor called off all
work on the city streets, and
stated that if he resigned, the
loan for $15,000 which he had
arranged for personally would
not be available.
Since deciding on Tuesday
night to retain office, Mayor
Gillett has completed plans for
the loan to the city and since
Wednesday morning city work
has been in full swing.
Terrific Dynamite
Explosion at Seattle.
Seattle, June L-Fifteen tons
of dynamite, loaded on a scow,
awaiting shipment to Russia, exploded here on Sunday morning.
The damage resulting from
broken windows in the city
amounts to $50,000. The shock
was felt for a distance of forty
The authorities believe the explosion was the result of a German plot to prevent the dynamite
reachieg Russia. The watchman
is missing and is believed to have
been killed.
Windows were broken as far
away as Bremerton. The total
damage is estimated at $100,000'.

The situation in Mexico grows
more complicated daily. The
nation seems unable to bring
order out of the chaos which has
existed in that unhappy country
for the past few years, The
government of the United States-
has forwarded a despatch to tht
Mexican Government to the effect that the present state of
affairs cannot continue to exist
and that it will be necessary for
Mexico to establish a government
that the world will recognize.

Wedding Bells.
The Presbyterian manse at Fort
George was the scene of a pretty
wedding last evening when Mrs.
Freida Grossman became the
bride of Mr. Harry B. Guest, the
well-known and popular Prince
George druggist. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. C. M.
Wright. Ihis morning Harry is
receiving the congratulations and
good wishes of his many friends,
in which the Herald heartily'joins.
Another wedding of local interest was solemnized Wednesday
evening when Mrs. Annie Barber
was married to Mr. Harold M.
Boyd by the Rev. C. M. Wright
at the manse. The newly-married couple will reside in South
Fort George, where Mr. Boyd is
employed by P. Burns & Co.
The fine corner store in the
Princess Theatre block, Third
Avenue, is being filled up with
shelving and conveniences today,
and early next week a complete
general stock from the large Fort
George store of James Munro,
Limited, will be installed. Mr.
Munro informs the Herald that
both stores will be operated by
his company.
William Germanski, of 1654
O'Farrel Street, San Francisco,
is anxious to get news of his
brother Tom, who was last heard
of in Fort George, some time

whereabouts of his brother.
J. T. Robinson Is
Conservative Nominee
At the Conservative convention
held at Kamloops last Monday, Mr!
J. T. Robinson received the nomination, and will in all probability be the
next representative of this district in
the Dominion parliament. Mr. Robinson was three times elected mayor
of Kamloops and for many years has
been a prominent and well-known
citizen of Central British Columbia.
As chief magistrate of Kamloops he
made an enviable reputation for himself and is responsible in a large
measure for the prosperity of that enterprising city. Mr. Robinson is well
known all over British Columbia and
stands high in the esteem of the people of this province. He has been active in political circles for years, and
has the unanimous confidence of the
Conservatives throughout the district.
Mr. Robinson will shortly pay a visit
to Prince George.

Prospects Are Good For
Sale of City Bond Issue.
Mr. C. D. Briggs arrived from
the West on yesterday morning's
train, en route to his home in
Toledo. Mr. Briggs is a member
of the firm of Terry, Briggs &
Slayton, one of the largest purchasers of municipal bonds in
At the mayor's request Mr.
Hansard was able to hold the
train for an extra 20 minutes
while  Mr.   Briggs  was shown
about the city and interviewed
regarding the purchasing by his
firm of the new bond issue for
this city. Mayor Gillett, Aid.
Ellis and Ruggies, took the matter up with Mr. Briggs, who was
well pleased with the appearance
of Prince George.
Ln all probability the new bond
issue will be taken up by this
well-known firm,
City foreman Mel. Irwin has
had a large force of men and
teams at work on the city improvement work planned by the
mayor and council. Since the
amicable adjustment, for the
time being at least, of the matters which threatened tp cause a
disruption of civic affairs, George
Street has been a busy street.
Yesterday 96 men and 11 teams
were engaged in street-grading
and well-digging. Today 75 men
and ten teams are working, and
with such a large force it is only
a matter of a short time till
George Street will present a more
respectable appearance than it
has in the past. The entire street
from Connaught Park to the railroad crossing is being graded to
a common level, or as nearly level
as possible. Dirt and gravel are
being hauled from different side
streets and private property,
wherever handiest, and this is
used filling in the low places. In
addition to filling up low places
on George Street this serves to
open and improve some of the
side streets.
The two wells already commenced are being sunk as rapidly
as possible. The workers are
somewhat handicapped by the
inflow of water, which has to be
pumped out in order that the
work of digging may proceed.
It is necessary to sink the wells
as deeply as possible in order to
provide a reservoir of sufficient
capacity to furnish ample water
for fire-fighting purposes.
Some dissatisfaction is shown
in regard to the men employed
each day, and it is a very difficult task for the city officials to
say just who shall work. If all
the men who have applied for
work were employed by the city,
Prince George would soon be
bankrupt. Yesterday the labor
question was thoroughly threshed out by the Public Works Committee and a just plan of employment worked out. All men who
have worked four days have been
temporarily laid off and other
men put in their p aces. It is
very difficult to handle such a
matter to the satisfaction of all.
George street was put to the vote.
For the resolution: Aldermen
Ellis, Parks, Livingstone and
Against the resolution: Aldermen Eagel and Ruggies.
The resolution, thus carried by
a vote of 4 to 2, expresses the
opinion of the new council regarding the station site. Mayor Gillett very strongly opposed considering the .question in this
manner, contending that he had
promised the voters before election that he would take up the
question of a depot immediately
after election ancl that he thought
the matter should be voted upon
by the people of Prince (leorge.
He stated that it was his wish
to carry out his pre-election promises, and stated he would resign
if the council insisted on petitioning the railway commission
to place the der.ot at the foot of
George street. The meeting was
adjourned until Monday evening,
when the question was again
taken up. At this meeting Aid.
Eilis moved:
"That the Council of the city
of Fort George recommend the
erection of a depot at the foot of
George street be immediately commenced, and that a copy of this
resolution be forwarded to the
Board of Railway Commissioners;
that an agreement Lie entered into
between the city and the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company for
the immediate commencement of
this work and the transfer in fee
simple of the parks and public
This resolution was supported
by all the aldermen, with the exception of Aid. Ruggies, who
moved that the council take no
action in the matter but leave it
to a vote of the people. There
was no seconder to Aid. Ruggle's
There seemed to be considerable difficulty in securing any
definite action on the matter.

Prince George railway station be

petition was not presented when
the meeting opened, a letter was
handed Mayor Gillett later on in
the evening stating that a petition asking that the G. T. P.
agreement as presented by Mr.
Hansard be passed. Aid. Ellis
stated that he understood 275
names had been signed to this
The agreement asked for by
the council at the previous night's
meeting was presented by the
city solicitor. This had been
drawn up by Mr. Hansard. The
agreement was rather a lengthy
document and it is not necessary
to go into the details of it. The
Principal clauses were as follows :
The development company will
convey free of cost or lease for a
period of nine hundred and ninety-
nine years, at a nominal rent of $1
per annum the ground set aside for
parks and city building sites, provided that such parks and sites be
used only for the purposes set forth.
The city agrees that the station
be placed at the foot of George St.
and that it will forthwith make,
and at all times support, to the
fullest extent, an application to the
board of railway commissioners of
Canada for an order authorizing
and sanctioning the immediate erection and maintenance by the railway company of a station ut the
foot of George Street in the city,
and that it will pass the necessary
resolution to this effect.
The railway company agrees to
co-operate with the city in its said
application to the said board and
when as soon as all the necessary
statutory requirements for the
erection by the railway company of
the said station at the foot of
George Street, as aforesaid, the
railway company agrees to commence work of erenting and constructing the said station and as
soon as practicable thereafter (o
complete the same ready for use
and operation by the railway company.

agreement, stating that it was
not what he had asked for. He

the past five years, and it would
seem that if civic progress is to
be made it is high time that matters of public interest should be
settled without so much bitterness.   The depot question, like
the poor,  seems doomed to be
ever with us.   Is the settlement
of the depot question  the sole
salvation of Prince George ?   It
would appear so judging by the
prominent place the matter has
taken in the minds of the people
for the  past  year.    The  new
council is  as a  house  divided
against itself, at a time when all
should  be pulling together in
order to facilitate matters pertaining to local  improvements,
Considerable personal feeling is
in evidence at the meetings of
the local aldermanic board,  This
should not be.   Naturally men in
office cannot be all of an undivided opinion, but it should be remembered  that   aldermen   are
elected by the people to serve
the best interests of the people,
and it is their duty to so fit themselves, in so far as knowledge of
important civic affairs is concerned, that they are in a position to
expeditiously dispose of matters
of importance when they come
up for consideration.
Equivocation means unpre-
paredness, unpreparedness suggests incompetence or neglect,
which in turn leads to the maladministration of municipal affairs. Civic government is a
matter for deep study. The
people of this city have shown
their respect for and their faith
in the ability of the new mayor
and council by electing them to
office. His Worship Mayor Gillett,
is a man of large business experience and knowledge of city
government. The members of
the council are men who have
made a success of business undertakings in this new city during
a period of hitherto unequalled
financial depression, and all are
well fitted for their positions.
Prince (leorge is setting out upon
her career as a self-governing
city, and harmony on the council
board and the patient assistance
of the electors are prime essentials to progress.

thankful for and should rest assured that our lot is a comparatively easy one.
A year ago Prince George did
not exist. A year hence we will,
despite adverse conditions, have
a city considerably in advance of
our city of today. Well-graded
streets will be found and efficient
systems of fire and police protection will be provided, as well as a

Neither team has been hurt by
too much practice, and a better
brand of ball would be served up
if regular practice nights were
set and the players secured a
good workout during the week.
Owing to the fact that I'rince
(Jeorge has as yet no recreation
grounds, it is a little difficult for
all the players to atterd the
week-night practices, the Cache
grounds being rather remote.
However, some effort should be
made to secure grounds suitable
for the purpose, within the city
The I'rince boys secured a lead
early in the game, which the
railroaders were unable to overcome, despite their best efTorts.
Milne, for Prince, and Latta for
the Cache, both pitched good ball
though each was touched for 10
hits. Most of these were well
placed. The Cache players showed better form than the city boys,

At present there is not a single
place where the young men of
this city can gather together, in
a wholesome atmosphere, and engage in beneficial athletic games,
or spend an evening on a gymnasium floor, or in a well-stocked
reading room. Owing to present
conditions, despite tho general
desire to assist, it is difficult to
make headway in an affair of
this kind, but it is to be hoped
that now the matter has been
brought up some effort will be
made to provide Prince George
with a Y. M. C. A. or some
other athletic association.
When (''eneralJoffre is travelling from point to point on the
hundreds of miles of battle line
under his direction, he does most
of his sleeping in his motor car.
While he travels at night, seldom
making less than 40 miles per
hour, he sleeps soundly, it being
stated that he finds the motor,
even at high speed, more comfortable than a camp bed.

At a recent meeting of the
mayor and council the matter of
the appointment of new city
officers was taken up. A large
number of applications, mostly
from local men, occupied several
hours of the committee's time,
and after careful consideration of
each and every application the
following appointments were
made: City Clerk - Edgar Childs,
City Solicitor - P. E. Wilson,
City Fire-Chief - E. B. London,
City Assessor and Collector (temporary) H. A. Carney, City Foreman - Mel. Irwin. All the new
appointees are local men, who
have been in this district for
considerable time, and each man
is well fitted for the position a>

Oeorge, nor in I'rince George has
there ever been anything in the
way of government assistance
for recreation purposes. On account of the unsettled state of
affairs which has existed in this
district up to this, time it has
been rather difficult to undertake
anything definite in the way of
securing a satisfactory recreation
park. However, with the incorporation of Prince George and
the definite settlement of the
city's boundaries, there seems to
be no reason why this matter
should not be promptly attended j
to. Doubtlessly the new admin-'
istratio. has the matter in mind
and some definite arrangement
will be made soon.

A meeting of a tentative nature
was  held  recently   by  several
voting business men of the city
for the purpose of  suggesting
plans for the founding of some
kind of an athletic club,   lt was
at first suggested that the business men of the district should
be approached regarding donating lumber, hardware, plaster,
electric fixtures, etc., necessary
for the construction of a club-
building and gymnasium combined.   Several unemployed men
have offered their services free
of charge for construction purposes, and all to whom the matter has been mentioned havo been
highly in favor .of the idea.   The
main difficulty seems at present
to be the obtaining of a small
amount of cash necessary for the
commencing of the building and
the paying of incidental expenses.   It has also been suggested,
and the idea is an excellent one,
