GERMANS' DESPERATE ATTACKS FRUITLESS
LAST THREE DA YS DISASTROUS TO ENEMY-
TERRIFIC FIGHTING IN MANY PARTS OF EUROPE
London, Nov. 21:���The house of commons last night passed
the army estimates and proyided for another army of a million
men, in addition to the 1,100,000 now in training.
There is no definite news of the German offensive in Russian
Poland, although reports say the Russians have been pressed back
from the German border in the direction of Warsaw. Petrograd
reports continued success in East Prussia and Galicia. In the
latter district four towns were taken and 3,000 Austrians captured.
In Northern France and Belgium there is a lull in the fighting.
The bombardment of Ypres has been heavy. Attacks by the
Germans upon the positions held by the Allies have proved fruitless, the enemy being repulsed with tremendous losses. The last
three days' fighting has been most disastrous to the Germans.
In a space of half a mile square, east of Ypres, the Germans
left over twelve hundred dead on the field.
The French government has moved back to Paris, indicating
the confidence of the Allies in the defeat of the German objective.
French experts believe Germany has made her last great effort
in the west and expect a great retreat at an early day.
Snow in Belgium is causing much illness, particularly among
the German troops. Copenhagen reports say Berlin military critics
estimate Germany's total losses at 1,250,000 killed, wounded and
missing, with an additional 600,000 sick.
Austrian troops are centering in great strength with the object
of destroying the Montenegrin and Servian armies. Servian troops
have been forced back into their own country, and preparations
are being made to move the capital from Nish to Uskub.
Engagements of secondary importance are reported in Russian
Caucasus.     A Turkish column was defeated and forced back.
Fighting is impeded by the impassable condition of the roads.
British operations against the Turks in the Persian Gulf littoral
are proving successful. Tbe Ottoman forces were driven out of
their trenches at the point of the bayonet. Many prisoners, with
a number of guns and a large quantity of ammunition, were captured.
The South African revolt is rapidly approaching an end.
General De Wet's forces lack ammunition, and the period allowed
for acceptance of an amnesty expires today.
A Pretoria despatch says Col. Celliere, commanding British
forces, encountered Beyer's rebels in the Orange Free State. After
a running fight for eighteen miles, in which casualties were light,
the rebels split into small bands and scattered. The horses of the
cavalry were too exhausted for further pursuit. Many prisoners,
with rifles, ammunition, wagons and stores, were taken from the
rebels.
Six hundred of the Canadian contingent took part in the memorial service for Lord Roberts at Salisbury Cathedral.
Seven thousand Germans, of engineers' corps, are proceeding
to Dixmude with material for the construction of bridges in the
flooded country, while an Austrian motor battery of heavy guns
is being transported to Ostend, indicating that the Germans will
endeavor to hold that point.
Acting under orders from Washington, United States officers,
on a revenue cutter, boarded the last steam yacht Winchester, off
Staten Island, and destroyed its wireless apparatus.
Ottawa, Nov. 21:���The number of men under arms in Canada
is likely to be increased from 80,000 to 50,000. From this number
reinforcements will be sent to England as required.
THE MINER'S TELEGRAPHIC BULLETINS TELL STORY OF GREAT WAR DAY BY DAY
The storm which
London, Nov. 15:���Lord Roberts is dead. He contracted a
severe cold while on a visit to the troops in France, and the results, at his advanced age, were speedily fatal.
The Allies have resumed the offensive along the battle front in
Flanders. Renewed German attacks of the most desperate character have been repulsed. There is no important change in the
situation.
The Prussians are fleeing before the Russian advance, and
panic is spreading throughout Germany. In Berlin the Russian
menace is regarded as of paramount importance. The Czar's
troops are engaging the Germans along a wide curve, from Stallu-
ponen to Soldau, a distance of 150 miles. A great battle is developing on the eastern front.
New York, Nov. 15:���It is reported that the British super-
dreadnaught Audacious was sunk two weeks ago, after striking a
mine off the coast of Ireland, and that the crew and officers were
all saved.   There is no confirmation of the report in London.
Toronto, Nov. 15:���A letter from a member of the first contingent says Canadian cavalry and machine guns have been in action
at Lille, France. It is believed a large body of Canadian troops is
already at the front.        	
London, Nov. 16: -Many tributes are being paid to the memory of Lord Roberts. The death of the veteran warrior has
created a deep impression in France. His body may rest in Westminster Abbey or St. Paul's.
In West Flanders the Germans continue their strenuous efforts
to break the Allies' line. Attacks in the Ypres district yesterday
were repulsed. The Franco-British forces have gained some
ground south of Bixschoote, while the rest of the line is unchanged.
The Germans have evacuated the Yser canal region.
On the east, the Russian forces continue their direct advance,
particularly in the direction of Posen and in Galicia. No important engagements are reported.
Reports of the loss of the super-dreadnaught Audacious are
persistent, although the admiralty is still silent. It is reported
that the liner Olympic rescued the officers and crew. Passengers
on the Olympic tell the story.
Ottawa, Nov. 16:��� Unofficial reports say the additional taxes
to be levied at the coming session of parliament, for the purpose of
meeting war expenses, will be light.
swept
The Mexican Trouble
El Paso, Nov. 21!���Two thousand of Carranza's men have
surrendered. Villa has taken
Leon and other garrisons, on his
march to the capital, the soldiers
changing their allegiance.
London, Nov. 17: ���The Russians are now imposing on captured
German towns fines proportionate to those  levied on  the  Belgian
: towns by the Kaiser's armies.     A proclamation to the Germans of
! East Prussia, which is now occupied  by  the Russians,  urges the
I inhabitants to guerilla  warfare.     All  methods of harassing the
enemy are declared to be permissible.     The population is expected
by the government to take up arms and keep the enemy in a state
of unrest; to seize ammunition, stop food supplies, capture scouts,
and destroy the Russian field hospitals.
It is reported that Cracow mny surrender to the Russians, to
avoid the tremendous damage of a modern bombardment. A
rumor, in Vienna, says Cracow is already in flames. The Russian
armies continue their advance.
The Paris bureau reports the situation in France and Flanders
unchanged.    The armies are deadlocked along the battle line,
where the snow is already ankle deep.
Belgium was a blizzard in England.
The 75th list of German cas'ialties, up to Oct. 24, has been
issued in Berlin. It gives Josses of 535,000. and does not include those of the retreat from Poland or of the severe fighting of
the last three weeks on the west front.
The flooded section in Belgium is increasing in area, as a result of continuous and heavy rains. The district of Nieuport and
Dixmude is a vast swamp in which are embedded guns and war
material abandoned by the Germans. Countless corpses are floating on the water. The floods are said to have cut off a large body
of Germans.
Premier Asquith has moved the additional war credit of a
billion and a quarter, the greatest single demand in the history of
British government. It will undoubtedly be voted. Britain will
loan money to Belgium and Servia.
No official reports were issued in London or Paris last night.
It is claimed in Be-lin that Bedouins have captured the British
seaport of Aden, Arabia, and that the Khedive of Egypt will leave
the Turkish capital soon to assume command of the operations
against Egypt.   He is to be accompanied by a suite of fifty.
The spy agitation in England is growing. All persons leaving
London for the continent must depart from the designated railway
station, and the person and baggage of every passenger are subject
to search for maps, drawings or anything else intended for the use
of the enemy.
Many mines have been washed ashore on the Dutch coast during the storm of the last few days.
Another attempt by the Germans to break through towards
Calais is looked for.
London, Nov. 18:-Owing to the indiscriminate mine-laying of
the Germans, the British government has declared the whole North
Sea a military area. It is also declared that all subjects of enemy
countries found on neutral vessels anywhere may be made prisoners
of war.
The great war loan is being readily taken up. Chancellor
Lloyd George stated in parliament that one firm alone had taken
half a billion.
The official communique from Paris states that the Allies have
taken the offensive along the center and southern part of the battle
front. Progress is pronounced on some portions of the line.
Renewed attacks by the enemy on the northern part of the line
have been repulsed.
An earlier report from French headquarters stated that
cannonading had been resumed with great violence between
Nieuport and Dixmude and around Ypres. On the canal snuth of
Dixmude, our artillery prevented the enemy's efforts to stop the
inundation of his trenches, which had to be evacuated. Two
attacks of German infantry, south of Bixschoote and Ypres, failed.
We advanced between Bixschoote and the canal.
A German detachment was destroyed in an endeavor to cross
the Aisne.
Violent cannonading is in progress in the vicinity of Rheims.
There is no confirmation of the report that Cracow is burning.
The Russian official bureau is silent today. Unofficial reports say
the surrender of Cracow is expected hourly.
The Prince of Wales is now at the front, but it is not known

Vancouver. Nov. 19:���Charles
F. Law, Canadian representative
of the Thomas interests, which
control the projected Pacific,
Peace River & Athabasca railway, left Vancouver yesterday

been called to England, to consult
with his principals on the plans

and was latterly located in Fraser
Luke and Vanderhoof, where he
was in the emoloy of J. W. Paterson. His death occurred suddenly, on Monday, from heart
disease. His untimely taking off
will be regretted by many friends
throughout the district.

No. 12
It now seems probable that the report of the destruction of
the British super-dreadnaught Audacious by a German mine is
correct, assuming which, it must be admitted that the loss of the
battleship is the most serious blow the British navy has yet sustained in the war. Yet its effect on the final outcome is negligible.
Losses of ships in minor engagenents, or through the use of submarines and mines, must be expected by the British, whose warships must expose themselves to danger in keeping the trade
routes open and in protecting communications with the army in
Franco and Belgium. Too much importance should not be attached
to the result of land or sea skirmishes, whether favorable or not.
As the Star says: "The main strategy of the armies is seldom affected by these encounters, which are often bits of clever playing
to the galleries, sometimes deliberately intended to divert notice
from the other more important aspects of the war. Up to date,
the great features of the world struggle have been the ravaging
of the little Belgian territory, the defeat of the German attack upon
the defences of Paris, the failure of the Germans to capture the
Eastern littoral of the English Channel, the steady progress of the
Russian forces against Austria and Germany, and the successful
control of the seas by the British fleet during the early days of the
war enabling the transportation of troop-; and army provisions to
the theater of war from the four quarters of the globe."

Chances and Dollars
"The really great rewards
come from-chances. He who
will not take a chance can scarcely hope for the reward. But see
to it that you HAVE a chance.
Great rewards do not come from
taking chances BLINDLY.
Now, take the average man,
and the average woman, with a
little independent income. You
can smother your money in government bonds at 2 per cent; you
can starve your dollars in the
cold storage of the savings bank
on a return of 3 per cent, which
no hanker would take unless
forced to do so by Federal law;
you can put your funds into a
house or a cottage and worry
yourself sick with repairs and
taxes, fire insurance and water
rate; you can buy an interest in
a store or a business and put
your interest at the mercy of a
partner or a manager who may
or may not disappoint you; or you
can take your dollar by the scruff
of the neck and put it out to work
in the open, out where if it does
succeed you will keep hearing
from it in dividends undreamed
of if you let it take a chance.
And when yon send your dollar
out on the firing line of business
in the big battle of businss, you're
making it do just what you did
yourself when you started out in
life away from your father's
vine and fig tree to hustle and
struggle, win or lose, as best yon
could. And have you ever stopped to think that a man's money
is like the man whose it is? If
you are a miser and poke your
money in a sock then your dollar will be a miser too and hide
its diminished head and stay just
like it was before you put it
there.
If you are a fool and go playing hide and seek with opporluu
ity, treating the world like a
game of tag, helter-skelter, hither and thither, round and round
like a mouse in ajar of oxygen -
then will your dollar spin and
roll and roll and spin until in a
flash it flits from your pocket to
the pocket of another and wiser
man.
Dollars have character.   Their
characters and  their habits are
jthe characters and the habits  of
those who possess them.
Do unto your dollar as you
would have your dollar do unto
you.
There are four kinds of dollars.
First the kind that get busy and
do things���dutiful dollars.
Second - seared dollars���dollars
afraid   coward dollars���these be-
: long to timorous people; let's call
them doubtful dollars.
Third���dollars that don't���dol-
j lars that won't���dollars that can't
helpless -drone dollars.
Fourth    bad dollars   gone dollars -dollars     you've     spent���
dissipated���lost���wicked   dollars
ipast   redemption.   THE ONLY
| DOLLAR    YOU    CAN'T    DO
ANYTHING FOR IS THE DOL-
I LAR YOU HAVEN'T GOT.
Therefore, think of your dollar
[ as a part of yourself���think of it
as that much of your life, as the
unit measure of the work you've
! done, the reward of dead   labor
j having within it the germ of untold possibilities and  hopes  for
future achievement if you   make
it take your place  and  do  in  a
small way what you'd do in a big
way if you could take  its  place.
I believe this is the only   right
way to think of money."
H. L. Barber.
Made a Good Choice
The organization of the faculty
of the British Columbia University is being gradually effected.
Recently announcement was
made that Dr. Reginald W.
Brock, of Ottawa, Ontario, had

the position of head of the mining engineering department of
the University. Dr. Brock is
well known in the Northwest, he
havingdone much geological field
work in British Columbia prior
to his promotion to the position
of director of the geological survey of Canada. Less than a year
ago he was made deputy minister
of mines for the Dominion, which
important position he has resigned so as to be free to take
charge of the mining engineering
department of the new university. Our neighbors are to be

that Switzerland had entered into a secret convention with Austro-
Germany to invade Northern Italy in the event of Italian participation
iii the war.
Paris reports say the German troops are showing unmistakable
sitrns of the terrific strain of the last month's-operations in Flanders
and the failure of their repeated efforts to break the Allies' line.
A stall' officer of the French army predicts that in one month there
will not be a German soldier on French soil.
A priest who arrived in Amsterdam from the eastern front reports lhat forty thousand Austrian dead were buried in one day, in

who were buried three deep, were killed in a battle of a few hours'
duration, in Galicia.
Copenhagen reports that a Russian battleship squadron has
lert HpI. ingfors, Finland, steaming southwest to engage the German Rallic squadron.
Serious interruption of business by the war has caused considerable agitation in Holland for joint intervention with the U. S.
The French government is preparing estimates of damage by
thi-1 German invaders, and statements of violations of the rules of
war. It is claimed the Germans have caused wilful damage am-
ounting to many millions, where no military purpose was to be
served by the wanton destruction.
The German converted cruiser Berlin has been interned in a
Norwegian port.
General De Wet is reported wounded in an engagement with
Botha's British forces.
London. Nov. 10:���The Germans continued * violent and
uninterrupted cannonading of the Allies' positions on the northern
battle front yesterday, but with little result. The Rritish fleet on
Monday carried out a vigorous hombardment of Zeebruge and
Knock.*, nn the Belgian coast, near Ostend, destroying German
stores and supplies.
French and British troops are reported to have broken the
German front, near Arras, capturing positions from which the
enemy has launched numerous attacks on the canal region. From
the French seacoast lo Armentieres and Arras, all highways and
canals are now held by the Allies.
Floods prevent any advance hy the enemy on the Nieuport-
Ypres line.   The rest of the battle front is unchanged.
In the Raltic, a German squadron is bombarding the Russian
cfv of Libau. while the Russian Black Sea fleet is shelling the
Turkish city of Trebizond, in Asia Minor. Parts of both cities are
d-.troyed. The Turkish fleet has evaded an engagement with the
Russians.
The United States cruiser Tennessee yesterdav reported that
the Turkish forts at Smyrna had fired on the Tennessee's launch,
which was taking the captain ashore for an official call. Washington
authorities are amazed at the Turkish action.
On the Polish frontier the Germans, reinforced hy the arrival
of troops from the western front, have resumed the offensive. A
battle of unprecedented violence has been in progress for four days
according to the official despatches. Attacking the center of the
Russian line, between the Vistula and Warthe rivers, the Germans
were repulsed. The Russian armies are still advancing against
Cracow and in East Prussia.
The German forces are reported to have made another dash
for Warsaw.
Petrograd despatches report furious fighting at Bukowina, on
the Russo-Austrian frontier. The Russians were victorious, the
Austrians fleeing in great disorder.
Germany has ordered the expulsion of all subjects of hostile
c.untries, without distinction of age or sex.
The declaration of the British government that copper is contraband of war may seriously affect Canadian copper mines.

d image to the cruiser Goeben. Berlin admits the engagement,
bnl says nothing of the Goeben.
There are conflicting reports concerning the advance of a German army in Poland. Petrograd correspondents say the Kaiser
is staking all on a great battle in Poland and has brought his finest
troops fiom France, depleting garrisons and moving guns wherever
possible. He is now striking for victory in a battle which may
decide the fate of the whole German venture.
In France and Belgium there is no important change. In the
region of the worst floods the Belgian troops are lighting from
small bouts.
Covered with the Union Jack, on which rested his sword and
service hat, the body of Lord Roberts lay at his residence at Ascot
while a brief service was conducted. The funeral, of an impressive
military character, was attended by the King and all military
leaders not at the front, in whose presence the mortal remains of
Britain's renowned soldier were laid to rest with those of Wellington
and Nelson in St. Paul's Cathedral.
The rush of applications for Britain's great loan continues.
The former surgeon of the Olympic denies the story of the
loss of the Audacious, recently told by passengers. The admiralty is still silent on the subject.
Three Turkish torpedo boats, which entered the Danube delta
in defiance of international law, were disarmed and interned by
Roumania, which thus maintains its right to enforce the neutrality
of the Delta. The matter is being watched with interest by the
Allies.
Acting on instructions from Tokio, the Japanese amdassador
has left Constantinople.
Feeling in Turkey against Ihe Young Turks arid the German
domination of the army and navy is acute. The German ambassador
is in fear of his life. Thfl prime mover in the revolt is Chucket
Pasha, who defended Adrianople in the Balkan war. He is
supported by Faud Pasha, the Turkish field marshal.
Indian troops are being employed against the Germans in East
Africa, where heavy lighting is in progress. British  casualties
to date are 900.
In South Africa Botha has had further successes against the
German-Boer commandoes, capturing guns, ammunition and
provisions.
Reports from Dunkirk say the Germans, noticing that the
British guns spared the houses of the seaport of Middlekerke, made
them their quarters. This became known to the British, who
suddenly opened fire on the houses from five ships at once. The
German casualties were enormous, 1700 dead being left on the
scene.
Mystery is connected with the sudden departure of Caillaux,
formerly premier and finance minister of France, with his wife,
who was recently the central figure in a murder trial, for an
enforced exile in South America. Caillaux was the greatest friend
of Germany in France, and a few days ago was mobbed in the
streets as a German spy.
An official report on the Chilean engagement by the captain of
the Glasgow states that he was unable to render any assistance to
the Monmouth. The latter, like the Good Hope, had difficulty in
firing her main deck guns. An explosion occurred amidships on
the Good Hope, and her destruction followed.
Ottawa, Nov. 20:���It is stated semiofficially that if the war
continues for another year Canada's military expenditure will exceed
$100,000,000. The $50,000,000 voted at the emergency session is
not all expended, but it is thought another $75,000,000 will be voted
at the coming session. Pending the conclusion of the war, the
government will curtail expenditure.
