HAZELTON MEN TO FRONT
Well-known Young Men Leave
to Join Second Canadian
Contingent
Hazelton is doing its share in
the contribution of men and
money to the British cause. On
Thursday the townspeople said
"Goodbye and Good Luck" to
Beven more young men who left
here to take their places in the
ranks of Canada's soldiers. The
recruits, several of whom were
prominent in the town's affairs
and will be missed, went to join
the Prince Rupert Light Infantry.   They are:
G. R. Middleton, teller in the
Union Bank, secretary of the
athletic association and goaltend-
er of the football team.
James Turnbull, forest ranger
for the northern district.

a vetern of Strathcona's Horse.
John K. Frost, a rancher and
ex-Territorial.
Andrew Moncur, formerly clerk
in the Bank of Vancouver here.
Lome D. Fulton, the druggist,
who expects to join the medical
oorpa.
A number of other applications
were received by Government
Agent Hoskins, who had charge
of the recruiting here,
The northern men, to the number of 129, left Prince Rupert
yesterday for the Willows camp
at Victoria. They were given an
enthusiastic send-off, the city
distributing $2000 in cash amongst
them and presenting each man
of the Light Infantry with a
wrist watch.
DANCE AT ALDERMERE
FOR PATRIOTIC FUND
A costume dance was held at
the Telkwa Hotel, Aldermere,
on Wednesday evening, in aid of
the Canadian Patriotic Fund, the
ladies of Telkwa and Aldermere
uniting as a committee on arrangements. The large dining
room of the hotel was filled to its
capacity, the crowd including
many from outside points, a
party of fifteen from Smithers
going up by train. Gray and
Adams furnished excellent music
and the ladies served dainty
refreshments.
As to the success of the affair,
it is only necessary to say that
dancing was kept up until 4:30
a. m., and about $200 was realized for the Fund.
Growth of Fund.
Government Agent Hoskins
reports receipts of $1,168.75 for
the Patriotic Fund. Lists of additional subscriptions are crowded
out this week, but will appear in
our next issue.
RETIREMENT OF KAISER'S TROOPS CONTINUES
TURKEY BECOMES ALLY OF GERMANY-
TWO BRITISH CRUISERS LOST IN SEA FIGHT
London, Nov. 7:���The admiralty has received confirmation of
the reports concerning a naval fight off the Chilean coast. The
cruiser Good Hope, Admiral Craddock's flagship, took fire and
foundered; the cruiser Monmouth was run ashore, while the Cano-
pus was not in the engagement. Nothing is said of the Glasgow.
The Good Hope had 900 men aboard and the Monmouth 535. The
total loss is not announced.
Reports from American sources say a naval battle is now in
progress off the coast of Peru, between British, Japanese and
German warships. It is believed the Japanese battleship recently
off the coast of California is one of the largest engaged.
It is officially announced that Tsing Tau has surrendered, giving the Japanese possession of the German territory of Kiau Chau,
China.
The midnight communication from Paris headquarters says:
"The enemy today renewed violent attacks near Ypres and Arras,
on the Aisne and Meuse, and in the Argonnes. All were repulsed,
and in some places the Allies gained ground."
The Germans have been preparing trenches on the field of
Waterloo, for the purpose of retreat. They may try to tempt the
Allies to bombard Brussels.
The Germans appear to have retired from both banks of the
Yser.
Hilaire Belloc estimates the losses of the Germans to date at
1,750,000.     This, he says, is one quarter of the enemy's available
fighting force.
Heavy firing was heard in Dover yesterday. It was not known
whether the reports were from artillery in Belgium or from a naval
engagement in the North Sea.
The Grand Duke Nicholas, commander-in-chief of the Russian
armies, has wired General Joffre that the Russians have gained in
East Prussia the greatest victory since the commencement of the
war.   No details are given.
A Petrograd despatch says the Russians in Armenia are operating against the Turks on a line 160 miles long. Armenians everywhere welcome the Russians, regarding the war as one of liberation
from the tyrannical rule of the Turk. Armenian refugees, who
crossed the border, have volunteered for service against Turkey.
Several entire regiments have been taken prisoner by the Russians.
The Austrian forces are in retreat along the river San, pressed
back by the Russians.
Berlin admits the loss of 266 men in the sinking of the cruiser
Yorck, which struck a German mine in the North Sea.
Russians have captured the Galician town of Jaroslau, near
Przemysl, taking five thousand Austrian prisoners.
Reports show that the center of the conflict in Belgium today
is the Ypres-Dixmude-Roulers triangle, where the Allies are taking
the offensive, forcing the enemy to retire towards Bruges. The
German assaults are growing weaker, while the pressure of the
Russians on the east is believed to be still further weakening the
German defence in Belgium,

Hunter Found Dead
Vancouver, Nov. 7: ���A. H.

their positions elsewhere.
Russians are again advancing in East Prussia. The enemy
has sustained enormous losses.
Russia's ambassador at Constantinople has been withdrawn.
Greek opinion is that Balkan peace rests entirely on the

An unofficial report from Sydney, New South Wales, says the
German cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisseau have been captured.
The failure of their coal supply prevented their escape.
London, Nov. 2:���Australian troops are believed to be en route
to Suez and Egypt.
The entire Italian cabinet has resigned. The reason for the
action is unannounced. It is expected a new cabinet will be formed
immediately.
Lloyd George, Lord Haldane, and tht chief justice, Lord Reading, have gone to the continent on a secret mission, some believe
to protest to neutral countries against the shipment of goods to
Germany. It may, however, be a subject of greater importance.
The destination of the ministers is unknown.
Following a report that the Kaiser had made overtures to the
Czar for peace, the head of the Russian army is said to have wired
to the Czar, "If you comply the Russian army will mutiny."
A midnight despatch from Paris says violent attacks by the
enemy, recently heavily reinforced, were renewed yesterday along
an extensive front. All were repulsed by the Allies. Important
gains were made by the Allies at several points. In the vicinity of
Nieuport and Dixmude the enemy met severe losses, leaving their
wounded on the field.
French forces have made progress almost everywhere, but
especially on both banks of the Aisne. They have advanced also
below Soissons and on the Meuse and Argonne.
The Germans have fortified many Belgian cities on the line of
their expected retreat.
During the week October 14-20, over 7,000 Germans were
interned in Holland.
Six German submarines have reached Antwerp overland.
It is maintained in Berlin that Russia's fleet started the naval
attacks in the Black Sea.
The loss in the sinking of the cruiser Hermes was fifty-one men.
The bombardment of Tsing Tau is proceeding.

known.
river, the Germans completely failed in a violent offensive movement, in Vailly, near Soissons.
A despatch from Amsterdam says the Germans have been
driven further back on the Belgian coast, after enormous losses,
while the Allies have occupied Leffinghe. three and a half miles
southwest of Ostend.
Lille has been evacuated by the Germans, and is believed to be
occupied by the Allies.
The Petrograd official statement says the enemy's attacks wen
repulsed yesterday by the Russian forces in East Prussia. Thi
Russian troops have made progress beyond the Vistula. The situation elsewhere is unchanged.
Turkey, replying to the demand of the Triple Entente for the
recall of the Turkish warships which have been bombarding Black
Sea ports, says that she desires to remain at peace with the alliei
nations but declines to dismiss the German officers in her employ.
The ambassadors therefore demanded their passports, and left
Constantinople on Sunday*
The cruiser Goeben, officered by Germans, bombarded a Russian
Black Sea port. One of the forts replied and the Goeben was
forced to draw off in a damaged condition. She has gone to
Constantinople for repairs.
In anticipation ol hostilities with Turkey, Great Britain has
declared martial law in Egypt.
The Transvaal rebels have been defeated in the Lich ten burg
district, bv a Union force under Colonel. Alberts. The rebels lost
30 killed, 30 wounded, and 240 prisoners, including Commandant
Claussens. General Botha has granted De Wet a five days' armistice, presumably to arrange peace.
German casualty reports for last week report losses of 60,000
and total casualties to date of 420,000.
The German submarine M-9, which torpedoed the Aboukir,
Cressy and Hogue, is believed to have been lost, having become
entangled in trawlers' nets off the coast of Holland.
A letter received in Washington from a German officer speaks
of the death and burial of the German crown prince.
In the last fortnight the Allies have taken 25,000 German
prisoners in France and Belgium.
The Nobel peace prize for this year, $40,000 in amount, is
allotted to the Belgian relief fund.
The battle in defence of Calais has proved the most sanguinary
of the war. It is doubtful if the number of killed can ever be
exactly reckoned. The failure of German plans is shown by orders
issued to hold at Bruges several trainloads of cannon and submarines, destined to take part in the proposed attack on England,
which has been postponed.
PROGRESS IN THE MINES
Activity and Optimism the Rule
With Men of Skeena
Crossing
Skeena Crossing, Nov. 6:���In
this immediate vicinity mining
operations are going ahead without let or hindrance and optimism
is the order of the day.
The Great Ohio crosscut which
has been driving for the big vein
penetrated the foot wall several
days ago, and has passed through
ten or twelve feet of highly mineralized vein matter showing
considerable copper. All the
conditions so far encountered are
favorable for the finding of a
large body of ore on the foot
wall.
The Rocher de Boule people
are working much and talking
little. No official information is
available, but it is freely stated
around camp that they are now
drifting in a very large body of
ore. At all events their ore
bunkers are full and every man
on the job appears happy.
Road Superintendent Jennings
visited the Crossing last week
and had with him ten or fifteen
pounds of very beautiful and
quite remarkable ore which came
from a recently discovered prospect near Usk, a station on the
line of the G. T. P. R'y not far
from Kitselas. The discovery
was made by Wells and Darby
and is located but an easy miie
distant from the railway. The
ore is a very beautiful and lustrous
bornite in a clear quartz gangue,
the quartz being beautifully
peppered with coarse free gold.
Messrs. Wells and Darby are
lucky in finding what is evidently
a grass-root shipper.
London, Nov. 3:���The official bulletin issued in Paris at midnight states that yesterday's attacks by the Germans, between
the North Sea and the Oise river, were less violent than those of
Sunday. The Allies in Belgium have advanced south of Dixmude
and are maintaining all other positions.   In the region of the Aisne
WASHINGTON AND
OREGON GO "DRY"
United States elections this
week show Democrats will again
control house and senate, but
with reduced majority. Democrats, 190. Republicans, 170.
Over sixty districts to hear from.
Washington has gone "dry"
by a majority of eight thousand,
and Oregon by thirty thousand.
Some industries already threaten
to remove to British Columbia.
Premier Returning
Victoria, Nov. 7: - Sir Richard
McBride sails from Liverpool
today.
Murder Jury Disagrees
Vancouver, Nov. 7:���The jury
yesterday disagreed in the case
of Bela Singh, accused of the
murder of two of his fellow-
countrymen in the Hindu temple
here some weeks ago.
London, Nov. 4:���An unconfirmed Associated Press despatch
from Valparaiso, Chile, reports a naval engagement off Coronel,
three hundred miles to the south, yesterday. The report states
three British cruisers gave battle to five German cruisers and that
two of the British, the Monmouth and Good Hope, were sunk, the
Glasgow taking refuge in Coronel. Three German phips, the
Nurnberg, Scharnhorst and Gneiseau, put into Valparaiso uninjured.
The Leipzig and Dresden are unaccounted for. This report is
disbelieved here. The Good Hope has guns that outrange the
enemy cruisers. The three German ships named could not make
Valparaiso in a day from Coronel, The three British cruisers

F. A. Heinze Dead
Saratoga, N. Y., Nov. 6:���F.
Augustus Heinze, formerly
known as the Copper King, is
dead here. He was much interested in mining in British
Columbia some years ago.
Traffic in Hudson's Bay has
grown to such an extent that, the
Canadian government has arranged for the installation of
lighthouses and other aids to
navigation. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1914

No. 10
Until the issue of the war is decided by the triumph of the
Empire and its Allies, Canada must be prepared to make sacrifices
and suffer loss; but there is little doubt that, in the end, the great
conflict will not injure the Dominion. One effect of the war will
be the immigration of large numbers of new settlers from the war-
swept districts of Belgium and France. Agriculturists from these
countries are likely to prove a considerable factor in the settlement
and development of Canada's immense unpopulated areas, and it
mny he that the expected influx will begin sooner than most of us
expe-t. Hon. W. J. Bowser, acting premier of British Columbia,
expects many immigrants to arrive in the province this spring.
H.is'qiiotud as saying:
"With the coming of spring, this province will occupy a better
position than ever before in the matter of opportunities for intending settlers. Great tracts of fine land, heretofore inaccessible, will
have been rendered available by .he railway lines now approaching
completion. All along the Grand Trunk Pacific in this province is
an immense new country splendidly adapted for settlement, and
the same is true in respect to the Pacific Great Eastern and for a
p .rtion of the line of the Canadian Northern Pacific.
"Now that the Panama Canal is in operation, the great steamship lines will, I nave no doubt, be eager to handle immigrant traffic
to Canada from Europe via our western seaboard. Thus you will
see that beyond the natural desire of great numbers of immigrants
from the Old Land to come here, there will be the endeavors on
the part of the steamship lines to induce travel to this coast via the
canal.
"There can be no question that a new eta is about opening in
r.spect to the future of this Province in so far as the land settlement problem is concerned. We are going to huve the settler
knocking at our door, and we must get ready to receive him.
" I anticipate that one of the most important matters dealt
with at the forthcoming session of the Legislature will be the whole
question of land settlement and aids to agricultural development.
To anticipate and appreciate the extent of the responsibility which
rests upon us in this connection seems to me a prudent thing to do
at this time."
DISTRIBUTION OF
SEED TO FARMERS
By instructions of the minister
of agriculture a distribution of
superior sorts of grain and potatoes will be made during the
coming winter and spring to
Canadian farmers. The samples
for general distribution will consist of spring wheat (about51bs.),
white oats (about 4 lbs.), barley
(about 5 lbs.), and field peas
(about 5 lbs.). These will be
sent out from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes (in 3 lb.
samples) will be carried on from
several of the experimental farms
the Central Farm at Ottawa
supplying only the provinces of
Ontario and Quebec. All samples
will be sent free, by mail.
Applicants must give particulars in regard to the soil on their
farms, and some account of their
experience with such kinds ol
grain (or potatoes) as they have
grown, so that a promising sort
for their conditions may be selected.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the
applicant, Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. If both
samples are asked for in the
same letter only one will be sent.
Applications on any kind of
printed form cannot be accepted.
As the supply of seed is limited
farmers are advised to apply
early; but the applications will
not necessarily be filled in the
e act order in  which  they are
received. Preference will always be given to the most
thoughtful and explicit requests.
Applications received after the
end of January, will probably be
too late.
All applications for grain (and
applications from the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should be addressed to the
Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such
applications require no postage.
If otherwise addressed delay
and disappointment may occur.
Applications, for potatoes, from
i farmers in any other province
should be addressed (postage
prepaid) to the Superintendent of
the nearest Branch Experimental
Farm in that province -Tn Brit-
Columbia, to Agassiz, B. C.
A Ledge Sermon
Says Colonel Lowery: "In dull
times business men make a mistake by not advertising. They
may save 10 to 17 cents a day by
so doing, but lose dollars where
they save cents. The people on
the outside of   the city do not
j care to deal with dead ones, who
are too poor, niggardly, or hash-
I fill to put their names in the
local paper, and buy their goods
| from live ones in other towns or
I in the east. It pays to keep a
bold front, even if the sheriff is
camping iu your back yard. The
world hates a coward in war,
love or business."
The Prospector
Perhaps I  am stark   crazy, but
there's none of you too sane;
It's just a little matter of degree.
My hobby is to hunt for gold; it's
fortressed in my brain;
It's life and love and  wife and
home to me.
And I'll strike it, yes, I'll strike
it; I've a hunch I cannot fail;
I've a vision,  I've a prompting,
I've a call;
I hear the hoarse stampeding of
an army on my trail,
To the last,  the greatest gold
camp of them all.
Beyond the Bhark-tooth ranges
sawing savage at the sky,
There's a lowering land no white
man ever struck:
There's gold, there's gold in millions, and I'll find it if I die,
And I'm going there once more
to try my luck.
Maybe I'll fail -what matter?
It's a mandate, its a vow;
And when in lands of dreariness
and dread
You seek the lone frontier, far
beyond your frontiers now,
You will find the old prospector,
silent, dead.
You will find a tattered tent pole
with a ragged robe below it;
Yon will find a rusted  gold-pan
on the sod;
Yon will find the claim I'm seeking, with my bones as stakes to
show it;
But I've sought the last Recorder,
and He's���God.
���Robert W. Service.

ABUNDANCE AND
SCARCITY OF METALS
As a basis for determining the
present commercial abundance of
the different metals, one may
fairly use the statistics of the
world's metal production in 1910,
as representing the output of the
last year of widespread industrial
activity. The total output of the
commercial metals during the
year, in metric tons, was as
shown in the first column of the
following table, the results in
the last column having been computed as a convenient basis for
comparison:
Commercial
Output abundant:,
metric tout sold = 1
Pig iron    . 65,300,000 92,000
Lead.       . 1,139,700 1,600
Copper     . 836,900 1,180
Zinc .       . 816,600 1,150
Tin   .       . 115,700 165
Aluminum. 43,800 60
Nickel      . 24,500 35
Silver       . 7,437 10
Quicksilver 3,600 5
Gold . 704 1
The output cf the different
metals varies from year to year,
so that their relative commercial
abundance is not definitely fixed;
but the figures for the year
taken as the basis may be considered typical of the present
period of metal production.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
(Continued from Page One)
named are with Admiral Craddoek, and have been heading north
for many days.    The admiralty lias made no statement.
An oiicial despatch from Havre states that the Germans have
fallen back towards the east, abandoning their dead and wounded,
the allied troops holding positions occupied by the enemy on Monday. Our troops, which moved forward on the Yser, found everywhere evidence of the precipitate retreat of the enemy. The
Allies have occupied important points on the Yser below Dixmude.
The German offensive in West Flanders has crumpled, says a
correspondent, but the victory at Ypres was purchased by the
British at an awful price, the batlle loss being the greatest ever
recorded in British history. Every time the British troops
advanced they found that the German fire on the French and
Belgians slackened and the entire German artillery attack was concentrated on the hated British.
The entire North Sea has been declared a military area, the
admiralty announcing that merchant vessels entering it are exposed
to grave danger from mines. Warships are searching vigilantly
day and night for suspicious craft. Action has been promptly taken
t'> reply to the laying of German mines in the waters north of
Ireland by ships under neutral flags.
Britain and Turkey are at war. The admiralty announces that
a British warship has bombarded and destroyed the Turkish
b irracks at Akabah, on the Turco-Fgyptian frontier. Turkish
civalry patrols were reported ye.terday, reconnoitring preparatory
to a movement on Egypt.
A Cairo despatch says Turkish troops are near the border, but
there is no alarm. The British are prepared to repel the expected
invasion.
It is reported in Petrograd that Turkey and Persia have formed
an alliance. The Czar has ordered a Caucasian army to cross the
frontier and attack the Turks.
The Nizam of Hyderabad, ruler of the largest Mohammedan
state in India, has issued a proclamation saying: "It is the duty of
the Mohammedans of India to adhere to Great Britain. In no
country of the world do Mohammedans enjoy liberty as they do in
India."
There is no fear that the Mussulmans of Egypt or India will
throw in their lot with the Turks.
An unofficial report from Dover says a large part of the German fleet has left Kiel for the North Sea.    This is disbelieved.
Berlin also reports the capture of 21300 prisoners, mostly British,
near Ypres, and 1000 French near Cliavenne.
The London Scottish, territorials recruited from banks, offices
and factories, distinguished themselves by routing a German force
in a bayonet charge at an unnamed point on the battle front.
The British submarine D-5 was sunk in the North Sea yesterday
by a shell from a German cruiser which was flying from British
vessels.    Only four of the crew were saved.
Lord Kitchener, President Poincareof France, and the premier
of Belgium were in conference at Dunkirk on Sunday, within
sound of the German cannon.
A despatch from Switzerland says the German crown prince ia
lying wounded at Strassburg.
Fifteen thousand Canadian troops will leave for England about
Jan. 1. It is understood the first and second contingents will be
maintained at a total strength on 45,000, in accordance with the
wishes of the war office.
The Karlsruhe is reported to have captured three British merchant ships in the South Atlantic.
was still retreating.     The Allies are now  within ten miles of
Ostend.
One report says half a million Germans are gathering southwest of Ypres for a final supreme assault on the Allies' line.
The Petrograd despatches say the .German forces have
retreated seventy miles. The Russians have reoccupied the
important towns of Lodtz, Plotgrow, Radom and Kielce. Many
German soldiers were found frozen to death in the trenches in
East Prussia.
Great Britain has annexed the island of Cyprus, in the
Mediterranean. The island was nominally a part of the Turkish
empire. British ships have bombarded Jaffa, and it is stated that
Britain will send an expedition to occupy all of Palestine.
Russia's army of the Caucasus has crossed the Turkish frontier,
taking a number of towns and forcing the Turks to retreat.
Bulgaria has declared her neutrality, and Greece shows no
signs of entering the war.
A repetition of the German attempt to carry out a naval raid
on the east coast of England is expected, and there is some
anxiety in English coast cities.
King George yesterday reviewed the Canadian troops on
Salisbury Plain, in the presence of the Queen, Lord Kitchener, and
Lord Roberts. The weather was fine and the occasion a brilliant
one. His Majesty was much impressed and expressed himself as
greatly pleased with the physique and spirit of the Canadians.
General Joffre, who is usually silent, sends a cheerful message
to Paris, stating that he is satisfied with the situation and confident
of success.
Austrian deserters say discord reigns in the Austrian army.
The Pacific cable, wrecked on Sept. 7 by the German cruiser
Nurnberg, flying the French flag, is again working.
The German cruiser Yorck struck a mine at the entrance to
Jade Bay and sank with more than half her crew.
Twenty thousand Albanians, who invaded Montenegro, were
almost completely annihilated.       All their officers were killed.
pass the military eyesight test,
he hopes to be allowed to join
the Army Medical Corps of the
second contingent. His many
friends will hope to see him back
in Hazelton when the war is
over.
A large number of the young
people of Hazelton enjoyed a
Hallowe'en Frolic at the home
of the Misses Grant on Saturday
evening last. From the time
the guests were greeted at the
door by the weird-looking spook
until "Auld Lang Syne" was
sung, was a period of hearty en-
j.yment. Many old-time Hallowe'en sports were indulged in
during the evening.
LOCAL NEWjMAGRAPHS
John   Bennett,   of  Smithers,
was in town on Wednesday.
J. Hughes, of Mile 52, is registered at the Hazelton hotel.
London. Nov. 5: The Germans still continue to withdraw from
the Belgian coast. Official reports from the Allies are becoming
more positive in stating that the enemy is retiring. Nieuport has
been evacuated, but not before the artillery of the Allies had
reduced it to an untenable ruin. The German staff headquarters
have been moved back from Thielt to Ghent, and new lines of
entrenchments are being feverishly prepared.
A Paris official despatch says the enemy has retreated from
the right bank of the Yser, abandoning prisoners, wounded and
considerable war material, in addition to artillery which was held
in the mud. Between Dixmude and the Lys fighting continues,
with appreciable progress on the part of the Allies. We have
advanced between Arras and the Oise, and have repulsed spirited
German attacks in the vicinity of Rheims-. There is no change on
the right wing.
Unofficial estimates of the losses sustained by the Germans are
large. One Belgian expert says the enemy's loss in the recent
fighting in Southwest Belgium was half a million men.
By some it is expected that the Germans will mass forces at
Ypres and make a final attempt to pierce the Allies' line.
lhe bombardment of the Dardanelles by the British and French
fleets continues. British ships bombarded and destroyed the town
of Jeddah, on the Red Sea. Turkey has seized ships in Constantinople harbor.
The Japanese and assisting forces continue the bombardment
of Tsing Tau. They have taken 2G German guns and abo'it 800
prisoners.
It is officially stated that the British submarine D 5, sunk in
North Sea, was blown up by a mine thrown out by one of several
German cruisers, which attempted a raid towards the English
coast but were quickly driven back to their base.
No statement has been issued by the admiralty regarding the
reported engagement off the Chilean coast.
In East Prussia the Germans are again on the defensive.
Russian troops have made advances at certain points, and have
captured 15,000 prisoners and 200 officers in the last week. The
Polish campaign is progressing favorably to the Russians, the
Germans being steadily driven back.
Vancouver, Nov. 5: -The British Columbia coast is well protected by ships and mines. The Newcastle, Swiftsure, Rainbow and
Idzuma are near by, and other warships are said to be headed
south to engage the German squadron, now in southern waters.
London, Nov. 0: The admiralty has had no report of the
alleged naval engagement off the Chilean coast, and declines to
accept the German version. Berlin has sent out no statement on
the subject, the stories of the officers and men of the German
crttis ts at Valparaiso being the only foundation known for the
report, which is so far unsupported by any evidence. The German
ships have left Valparaiso. The cruiser Canopus is with Admiral
Craddoek, as well as the three mentioned in the report.
The official communication from Paris states that the Germans
were repulsed at Arras and in Argonnes yesterday. At midnight
the situation was unchanged from early morning, when the enemy
