A province-wide movement to provide the Fifth Army Medical
Corps with surgical and ambulance equipment in addition to that
provided by the Dominion Government has been inaugurated
equipment will be used for the purpose of saving the lives of British
Columbia soldiers. The principal items to be provided will be
special surgical instruments, X-ray apparatus and powerful motor
ambulances; the latter to convey the wounded soldier from the
battle line to the hospital in the quickest possible manner, and the
former to enable the surgeons in charge to quickly and painlessly i
determine the extent and nature of his injuries, to locate bullets
and shell splinters definitely, thus enabling their extraction with
a minimum loss of time and the least amount of suffering to the
Many lives have already been sacrificed because such apparatus
was either lacking or inadequate in amount to enable all the wounded
to receive its benefits. Many more of our boys will fail to return
unless such equipment is provided.
While the enthusiasm for furnishing machine guns is at its
fever heat it must not be forgotten that the saving of our own
soldiers is just as important as the destruction of the enemy's
It is estimated that at least $25,000 will be required to meet
the exigencies of the case, and the B. C. branches of the Red Cross
Society and St. John Ambulance Association have combined their
forces to direct and stimulate the raising of this amount, while the
other patriotic organizations of the province will assist.
The officers of the joint organization are giving their services
free of charge,  and office expenses are provided for, so-that all
money subscribed to the fund will be available for th

Nicholas maintains an unbroken
front. Though the Germans and
Austrians have made thrust after
thrust in an attempt to pierce
the front, at no point have they
succeeded, it is asserted at the
war office.
London: The most important
engagement in France since Festubert has resulted in a British
advance at Hooge, when thirty
German trenches were captured.
Geneva : Austrian troops,
numbering 30,000, released from
the Russian front, attacked the
Italians before Gorizia yesterday.
After a 15 hours battle, the Austrians were driven back, leaving
2000 dead,
Paris: The Allies resumed
warship attacks on the Dardanelles two days ago, and are effectively bombarding the forts,
London: The German losses
to date total 2,178,683, according
to the Berne correspondent of the
Morning Post. The latest casualty list gives the total Prussian
losses at 1,641,568, and of losses
for the Bavarian, Saxon and
Wurtemburg troops as 517,114.
Wednesday, August' 11
Amsterdam : The heaviest
fighting since the second battle
of Ypres last spring is now in
progress in West Flanders. The
roar of the big guns on the Ypres-
Dixmude line has been incessant
since Sunday, and there has been
a steady stream of wounded Germans through Ghent and Bruges,
A great number of the German
wounded were taken to Antwerp.
Following a severe bombardment
the Germans tried to attack all
along the line, but the fire of the
British, French and Belgian guns
cut their efforts short.
Petrograd: Russian and German gunners are engaged in a
terrific duel at the fortress of
Kovno. The Germans have
made five attempts to carry the
western fortifications of the
stronghold by storm, butall have
been repulsed with heavy losses.
It is believed that the Germans,
presumably led by General von
Buelow, have settled down to a
siege of the fortress, hoping to
dest' "y its defenses. A correspondent, telegraphing from the
city of Grodno, says that in the
opening assaults on Kovno the
Germans used the same tactics
followed in the first campaign
against Warsaw, when the attacking forces suffered so heavily
that the entire Teutonic offensive
in the east was crippled.
Russian military experts see in
the unsuccessful German naval
attack on the defenses of the
Gulf of Riga further evidence
that the Kaiser's land campaign
north of the Gulf of Saros, and
the resumption of offensive operations by the Allies on the Gallipoli peninsula is believed to point
to the early forcing of the Dardanelles.
Bulgaria has offered to attack
Turkey, in return for the grant!
of Servian Macedonia, which
was to have been hers at the end j
of the Balkan war. The early
entry of Greece, Bulgaria and
Roumania into the war is expected.
Allied aviators destroyed a
Zeppelin today, near Ostend.
Thursday, August 12
London : General Sir Ian
Hamilton's latest report says:
"Severe fighting continued yesterday on the Gallipoli peninsula
in the 'Anzac' zone and in the
region to the north. The positions occupied were slightly varied in places, but the general
result is that the area held in
Anzac has been nearly trebled,
owing, chiefly, to the gallantry
and dash of the Australian and
New Zealand troops. While to
the north no further progress
has been made, our troops have
inflicted heavy losses on the enemy. The French battleship St.
Louis is reported to have put out
of action five out of six guns in
the Asiatic batteries."
London: The Germans now
are developing a fresh offensive
in the direction of the interior of
Russia, apparently with the support of huge new levies, accord
ing lo the Petrograd correspondent of the Times.
Without waiting to accomplish
the envelopment of the Russians, who are falling back fiom
the Vistula, the Germans are
endeavoring to storm Kovno and
are advancing at the same time
on an extended front between
the Niemen and the Dvina. on
a dash northward toward Riga,
eastward toward Dvinsk and
southward toward Vilna. In the
Riga district the Russians are
taking the initiative. German
efforts to enter the Gulf of Riga
have been suspended, but are
likely to be renewed at any time.
Rome: It has been officially
announced that the Austrian submarine U 12. of 1000 tons, has
been torpedoed and sunk, with
all hands, in the upper Adriatic
Sea by an Italian submarine.
The announcement was made in
a statement issued by the navy
department, which added: "This
morning two Austrian torpedo-
boat destroyers bombarded Rari,
SantoSpirito and Molfetta (southern Italy, on the Adriatic). One
civilian  was killed   and   seven
accomplished the feat drew close
to the shore and shelled a column
of Turkish troops marching toward the town of Gallipoli, inflicting heavy losses upon them.
The Allies in the Dardanelles are
greatly elated at the sinking of
the Barbarossa, which was a
thorn in their side, because the
accurate fire of its high trajectory
guns more than once hampered
the movements of Allied ships
approaching the Gulf of Saros,
by firing across the peninsula.
All foreigners in Turkey, the
Times despatch says, have been
forced to discard hats and wear
