German Attack Failed
London: Further information
shows that the German attack
on the British front, south of La
Bassee canal on Oct. 8, was made
in great strength. Main German
efforts were directed against the
chalk pit north of Hill 70 and
and between Hulloch and Hohen-
zollern redoubt. In the chalk
pit attack, the enemy assembled
behind some woods which lie
from 300 to 500 yards off the
British trenches. Between the
woods and our line the attack was
stopped by a combined machine
gun, rifle and artillery fire, not a
man getting to within forty yards
of the trenches.
Refuse to Fight
Geneva: About twenty Bulgarian army officers, who are in
Switzerland, have refused to join
and ten rapid-firers.
Nish: Our troops have repulsed the efforts of the enemy to

has arrived on the Servian front.
London : Bulgarian troops
attacked Vlasina, Servia, last
night.   They were repulsed.
Paris: 150,000 Austro-German
troops which crossed the Save and
Danube were repulsed by Servian
artillery. The enemy gained a
slight foothold at Belgrade.
7,500 Germans Killed

repulsed, with a loss to the enemy of 7,500 dead. The French

On Monday a majority of the

been handed his passports and
diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Great Britain have
been broken off."
London : Bulgaria officially
declared war on Servia today.
Bulgaria has an army of 300,000.
The Bulgarians were repulsed in

No. 7
The Royal Commission inquiring into war contracts has finished
its special investigation into the purchase of the two submarines,
and, judging by the evidence given, those who have tried to make
party capital out of tales of graft in connection with the purchase
have read the evidence with considerable disquietitude, It is as
well to be quite frank regarding these accusations. They were
made against Sir Richard McBride, whether as leader of the
Conservative party in British Columbia or personally makes not
the slightest difference. The Liberal party evidently considered
it wise to press those charges and retained a lawyer apparently in
order to see that Sir Charles Davidson, as head of the commission,
did his duty. Sir Charles considered that the commission's counsel
was quite capable of performing the functions for which he was
engaged without any assistance from the Liberal party, and said so.
While the evidence of the Electric Boat Co., of New York, has
yet to be taken, tnere is nothing in that already given which can
give any ground for the accusations which have been made. That
the circumstances under which the boats were purchased were such
as to make rapid action imperative is obvious. There is every
justification in bringing such evidence forward because the insinuations were based on the difference in price paid by the Dominion
government and that which was to have been paid by the Chilean
government. ********
It was almost entirely owing to Sir Richard's influence and
determination that the boats were purchased in time. But to the
Hon. Martin Burrell, Messrs. Logan, Barnard and others must go a
great deal of credit for the way they handled the situation at a
very critical time. The commission, under the able chairmanship
of Sir Charles Davidson, has not wasted its time or public m )ney in
coming to the coast. Certain accusations had been made and no
doubt, while they were made in good faith, they were pressed with
a good deal of party bias. It was only just that they should be
submitted to the fullest inquiry. The public is now betteracquainted
with the excellent manner in which the whole of these inquiries is
being conducted.���Province.
A. H. Tomlinson, provincial
horticulturist at Prince Rupert,
gives the following directions for
the pitting of roots or potatoes:
"Where no root-cellar is available the roots can be stored successfully in the open, especially
in districts having long winters
with steady cold weather. The
main problem is to provide for
enough covering for the pit so as
to prevent freezing. On the
other hand the cover should not
be made too heavy, as detrimental heat may be caused.
Essential for the successful
storing of roots is to select dry,
well-drained ground for the pit,
to cover the pit properly, to regulate the covering according to
climatic changes during the
storing period and to provide for
necessary ventilation. A slight
elevation or a hillside, where
water will not accumulate, will
prove the best location for a pit.
The building of the pit may then
be varied, according to local requirements. Whether the pit be
started from the surface or a
trench be dug is immaterial. If
the pit is started in a trench it is
however,  to provide
good drainage, so as to prevent
any water from staying in the
A convenient sized pit should
be made five or six feet wide,
with the roots piled up three feet
or so above ground level. If they
are piled higher it will be difficult
to regulate the temperature, especially in the spring.
When the potatoes or roots are
stacked, they should be covered
with a layer of straw (brush will
do) and later in the season, when
the cold weather sets in, a layer
of earth should be added to the
straw. In order to provide for
ventilation, however, the straw
on top of the stack should be left
uncovered in spots about four
feet apart, or the pit should be
provided special air shafts. The
thickness of the covering layer of
straw and earth will depend on
the severeness of the winter.
For colder parts a twelve to
eighteen inches thick layer of
straw, covered with a layer of
earth six to nine inches deep is
recommended for the coldest part
of the winter. In the spring the
layer of earth should be removed
and, generally speaking, the
thickness of covers modified,
according to the temperature.

Baron Kikujiro Ishai, the recently appointed minister of foreign
affairs and previously ambassador
to France, is likely to be followed
by a full reconsideration of the
international situation, with a!
special reference to Japan's policy
for the preservation of her own
permanent interests.
Another factor is arousing discussion on this subject, that is
the arrival of Pnges Leroux, the
editor of the Paris Matin, who,
although without official mission,
comes, it is understood, with
introductions from and with the
approbation of M. Delcasse, the
French foreign minister, to discuss military questions with
prominent Japanese, with a view
to determine whether the latest
developments justify a change in
Japan's decision not to send an
army to aid her allies and the
likelihood of despatching troops
to the Balkans.
London Optimistic
London Reports from all the
theaters of war are optimistic.
The Austro-German invaders in
Servia are meeting with stubborn
resistance. Important Russian
successes in Galicia have been
confirmed. Ivanoff broke through
the German front on the Stripa,
taking 2000 prisoners and many
guns, forcing the enemy back
thirty miles in three days. The
French are resuming the offensive
in Champagne and a great fight
is now in progress.
British Submarines Busy
Copenhagen: British submar
ines in the Baltic are causing the
German mercantile fleet great
loss. The German steamer Walter Leonhardt, was submarined
yesterday, making the sixth vessel destroyed in two days. All
shipping service in the Baltic is
and explosive bombs were dropped. The material damage done
was small. A few fires resulted
but they were quickly put out by
the fire brigades.
"At present it is only possible
to say no public buildings were
damaged and that casualties so
far reported number two women
and six men killed and about
34 injured. With the exception
of one soldier killed, all were
British Submarine Successes
Stockholm: Seventeen German
ore steamers in the Baltic are
missing, They are believed to
have been sunk by British submarines.
London: A British submarine
yesterday torpedoed the Hamburg-American liner Comda, off
the North Frisian Islands. The
crew of thirty-three was saved.
British submarines are active in
Heligoland Bay.
In the Balkans
Paris: Private advices are to
the effect that a Bulgarian division was almost annihilated in a artillery
fierce battle near Kraguyevatz,
Servia, says a despatch to the
Havas Agency from   Bucharest.
Paris: Martial law has been
proclaimt.d in Saloniki and Prince
Nicholas, brother of King Constantine, has been appointed as
military governor of the Interior
zone. General Sarrall, commander-in-chief of the French  forces.
A Secret Treaty?
London: It is openly asserted
in Berlin that a secret treaty
exists between Greece, Bulgaria
and Germany, says the Morning
Post's Berne correspondent.
Balkan Operations
London: Martial law has been
declared throughout Greek Macedonia, says the Times' Saloniki
London: A Sofia despatch to
Reuter's says: "It is announced
here officially that Bulgaria will
protest to the legations of the
neutral states against the violation of Bulgarian territory by
Servian troops."
Rome: The Allies have started
operations against Bulgaria. A
force of 100,000 Allied troops has
been landed at Saloniki and
others are on the way. Greece
has placed all railways at the
disposal of the Allies. Simultaneously, the Russians are attacking Varna and Burgas. A
report from Nish states that the
Bulgarian a'tack on Kraguyevatz
ended with the massacre of the
Bulgarian  troops by the Servian

Russians Still Gaining
Petrograd : The war office
estimates that upward of three
Austrian divisions were disorganized as the result of a striking
victory for the Russian forces in
Eastern Galicia, where the Muscovites pierced the enemy's defenses on the Stripa river, at
the same time storming on the
strongest points of the Austro
German right flank. Tactical
strategy and political victory
characterizes this success and it
will compel General von Linsin-
gen to re group his forces on the
whole front, which will affect
operations in the whole southeastern district.
Greece Defends Her Borders
London: A Rome despatch to
the Daily Chronicle says:
"To avoid the possibility of
conflict the Greek troops were
recently withdrawn from the
proximity to the Bulgarian border. Taking advantage of the
retirement, bands of Bulgarians
are now reported raiding northern Greece, in the direction of
Lhe Vardar river, at a point adjoining Servian territory. A
force has been sent in pursuit
of these marauders.''
Another Zeppelin Raid
London: The following official
statement has been given out by
the Home office:
"Zeppelin airships yesterday
evening made a raid over a portion of London, where incendiary | kans.
The Western Front
London (official): "Yesterday
afternoon, after a bombardment,
we attacked the enemy's trenches
under cover of a cloud of smoke
and gas, from a point about six
hundred yards southwest of Hulloch to the Hohenzollern redoubt.
We gained about one thousand
yards of trenches just south and
west of Hulloch, but were unable
to maintain our positions there,
owing to the enemy's shell fire.
"Southeast of Steli we captured and held enemy trenches
behind the Vermelles - Hulloch
road and the southwestern edge
of the quarries, both inclusive.
We captured the main trench of
the Hohenzollern redoubt, but
the enemy is still in two trenches
connecting the redoubt and the
"With regard to the statement
made in a German communication
of Oct. 14, that we attacked over
almost the whole front between
Ypres and Loos, no attacks were
made whatever, other than those
described in our early message."
To Aid in Balkans
Udine, Italy: It is generally
believed here that participation
by Italy in the Allied movement
to assist Servia is being arranged
with the Entente powers, but
further consultations between the
war and finance ministers will be
necessary. Public opinion in
Italy inclines to the belief that it
will be impossible for the nation
to remain indifferent to the settlement of the conflict in the Bal-
