whole frontier of Tyrol and Tren-
tino there have been no important engagements. Continuing
our operations against Rovereto
we have occupied Mattasone and
Val Morbia, in the Val Arsa.
Our artillery has silenced the
Austrian forts of Luserna and
Spitzeverle and seriously damaged the forts of Belvedere and
Busaverie. In the middle of
Isonza our attack against the
spurs of Monte Nero and Tolmein
met with great difficulties owing
the nature of the ground and the
formidable entrenchments occupied by strong Austrian forces
with machine guns and artillery.

Monterno are firmly in our possession.    Our  losses were  not
serious. The battle continues
with fresh troops, with which we
hope to obtain a decisive result.

Shavli region on June 2 3 there
were skirmishes of advantage to

Vistula there is nothing to report. In Galicia, on the left
of the San���to its confluence with
the Wisloka���we had a fresh
success, notably at the village of
Nowosielitza, west of Rudynk,
where our troops continued to
press the enemy, who was in
orderly retreat. On the right
bank of the San the enemy continues to attack. Between Przemysl and the Dneister, in the
region of Mliewaba we again
repulsed the enemy, inflicting
heavy losses. During the night
of June 2-3 the enemy attempted
to rush our entrenchments, but
our troops repulsed their assaults,
when they retired, abandoning
heaps of dead in front of our
trenches. In the course of our
counter attacks during the nieht
we took 700 prisoners, including
17 officers, and captured some
machine guns.
London, May 31:���The official
note issued by the French war
office last night is as follows:

of the Yser canal our troops have
occupied all German trenches on
Hill 17, in the region of Bilken.
We made about fifty prisoners
and captured three machine
guns, later repulsing a counterattack. In sector north of Arras the artillery engagement was
of a violent nature. We attacked to the southeast of Neuville
St. Vaast a large German work
called the Labyrinth. The action
was hot. We advanced 400
metres and made a number of
prisoners, among whom were
several officers.

and the Upper Vistula we captured, between May 12 and 24,
109 officers and 18,617 of the
rank and file. In Galicia, the
battle on the San river also is
developing in our favor. Our
troops have successfully assumed
the offensive, and last night they
crossed the river Lubaczowki
and occupied the village of Monaster, inflicting heavy losses on
the enemy.
The offensive of the enemy
along the front from Jaroslau to
Radymno, in an easterly direction, has been stopped by our
fire. In the region beyond the
Dneister all hostile attacks on
Saturday were repulsed with
heavy losses to the enemy. On
Saturday night our troops assumed the offensive with great
success. On this front we captured over 7000 prisoners and
thirty quick-firing guns. The

No. 40
There is evidence of a change in German sentiment towards
Great Britain. Not so much is now heard in the Kaiser's'country
of the slogan "God punish England," which had been for months
on every'lGerman's tongue: instead, the leading newspapers of
Berlin are now publishing���undoubtedly"withTofficial cognizance
articles putting forward the view that, while the German army has
triumphedjn'the'field.'the British navy has maintainedjiits supremacy, and that England, having attained its object to a certain
extent, should be willing to make peace with Germany. Such an
arrangement, it is pointed out, would require of Germany the
sacrifice of many of her ideals, but she would receive in return solid
compensations in other directions.
This remarkable statement is made: "The course of events has
brought about the curious circumstance that England was today
the only friend which Germany possessed, although the friendship
was, of course, solely a matter of policy."
It would appear that Germans seriously think of the possibility
of detaching Great Britain from the Great Alliance, or such articles
as those referred to would never be permitted to appear in newspapers which are under strict government censorship. They seem
to believe the agreement by which Great Britain, France and
Russia bound themselves to continue their alliance until the end of
the war, and to which Italy has now become a party, is only
another "scrap of paper" which the British will feel free to repudiate as Germans repudiated the treaties guaranteeing the neutrality of Belgium. The fatuity of this reasoning should be plain, but
that it is now put forward in Berlin is only another evidence of the
inability of Germany to realize that national honor is a factor in
international affairs, and emphasizes the difference between the
incapacity of the Germans in world-politics and their great efficiency in military and industrial organization. In the latter respect
they are unsurpassed, but their material efficiency is more than
offset by the almost unbelievable lack of intelligence shown in
their diplomacy.
Notwithstanding German efforts, the war will be prosecuted
to the bitter end by all the Allies. What the result of the great
conflict will be, beyond the ending of Prussian militarism, it is not
yet possible to say, but some interest will attach to the folliowng,
which is published in Washington:
"The secret understanding on which Italy joined the Allies
involves remaking not only the map of Europe but a regrouping of
all the nations on that continent, according to information given by
an American who has been in Rome since the war started and who
enjoyed peculiarly intimate relations with the diplomats of all
nations who were stationed at the Eternal City.
Here are the plans of the Allies as outlined by him, plans that
arrange the future of the world:
"1.��� The war shall be continued until Germany and Austria
are forced to accept whatever terms are given them, and each of
the four great powers are pledged to continue the war until it is
abandoned by the unanimous consent of the four.
"2.���There shall be no arbitration by Holland, America, or
other neutral powers, but the four Allies shall dictate the terms of
"3.���There shall be three classes of nations established in
"Class A shall consist of Great Britain, Russia, France and
"Class B shall consist of Belgium, Holland, Servia, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Roumania, Greece
and Bulgaria.
"Class C shall consist of Bohemia, Poland, Bavaria, Croatia,
Hungary and other minor states into which by racial affinities the
German and Austrian empires shall be split.
"Class A states shall guarantee the peace, of Europe.
"Class B states shall be entirely independent, but disputes between them must be arbitrated by the class A states.
"Class C shall be independent, but have no soldiers of their
own except for police duties and shall make no international-
treaties either commercial or postal."
These plans, said the Herald informant, have been talked of
daily for eight months among the master minds of Europe who
are agreed this is the only reorganization that will keep the world
at peace, and the politicians intend the soldiers shall fight until
they are enforced.

Lloyd George Speaks Out
Declaring that the German
victory in Galicia was due to an
overwhelming superiority in
equipment and that if the Allies
in the west had been as well
equipped, the Germans would
long ago have been driven from
France and Belgium, David
Lloyd George, the new minister
of munitions, made a stirring
appeal in Manchester on Thursday to employers and workmen
to supply the British army with
the necessary munitions. "I
come to tell you the truth," he
said. "Our Russian allies have
suffered a severe setback. The
Germans have achieved a great
success, but not because of superior valor. The German triumph is due entirely to an overwhelming superiority of shot and
shell and munitions and equipment. It was a battle won by
the use of their skilled industries,
and especially by the superior
organization of German workshops."

Rome (official): One of our
dirigibles flew over Pola last
evening, dropping bombs on the
railroad station, a naptha depot
and the arsenal. All the bombs
burst with full effect. A big
fire started in the arsenal. The
dirigible was subjected to a violent fire from the land batteries,
but was not hit and returned intact. This morning our destroyer flotilla bombarded a shipyard
at Monfalcone, causing considerable damage.
Rome (official): Our forces continue to advance beyond the
Tyrol-Trentino frontier. They
now occupy the height of Zugna,
dominating Bov��rto. The Austrian fort of Belvedere is weakening. Our infantry is solidly
established. Mount Belvedere is
in our hands. Our Alpine troops
repulsed five attacks of a machine-gun battalion in a defile at
Mont Croce, putting the enemy
to final flight.

Turkey, while Roumania will
declare war against Austria and
will cede the disputed territory
of Dobrudja to Bulgaria, to remove present dissatisfaction.
London: The government has
ordered the registration of all
men in Great Britain. This is
believed to be preliminary to
Petrograd: Russian forces have
captured 16,600 prisoners in the
last three days. The enemy's
gas on the Galicia front spreads
over twenty miles of ground.
London, June 2: ��� A Reuter
despatch from Athens says it is
reported from Constantinople
that a British submarine has torpedoed two Turkish transports,
one of them laden with troops,
in the Sea of Marmora. Later
despatches from Athens say that
a British submarine sank at
Constantinople the Mahussein
steamer No. 26, carrying Turkish
troops to the Dardanelles. It is
stated that because of the activities of a British submarine, Turkish troops are now being despatched by rail to the Gallipoli
peninsula. The correspondent of
the London Mail says it is believed there the Germans have
ten submarines around the Dardanelles.
London: A despatch to the
Daily Mail from Rome says that
all the Italian newspapers hail as
an accomplished fact the approaching entry of Rumania and
Bulgaria into the war.
Paris (official communication):
Very spirited actions have extended in the sector north of
Arras and we have realized new
progress. Notwithstanding several violent counter attacks, the
enemy was not able to dislodge
us from the trenches conquered
in the wood adjoining Aux Noul-
We have also maintained our
gains to the northeast of Chapel
of Lorette. The violent engagement of which the sugar refinery
at Souchez had been the center
for two days, has ended to our
advantage, and we have occupied
the refinery. During the course
of the night the enemy recaptured it, but at daybreak we
drove them out and we are masters of the positions in spite of
all counter attacks. We have
inflicted heavy losses on our adversaries. In the "Labyrinth,"
southeast of Neuville, we continue to carry one by one the
German works. We have made
important progress in the northeastern part of that fortified system and have taken about 150
prisoners. All the ground gained
has been conceded.
Rome (official): A series of
engagements fought on May 30
in Carnicla, west of Montecroce,
definitely ended in the defeat of
the enemy, who left thirty dead
and numerous wounded in front
of our lines. During the day of
May 31 there were small actions
all along the frontier as a result
of a new disposition of our advance troops. The bad weather,
which continues to create serious
difficulties, has not had the
slightest effect on the spirits or
the health of our soldiers. An-
cona authorities state that the
damage to the railroad bridge
over the Maresca, near Rimini,
on May 24, was not caused by
enemy warships but by an Austrian dirigible which was flying
the Italian flag.
Washington: President Wilson,
in a note to Mexico, orders that
peace be restored. This is probably the first step towards intervention.
London: An official announcement in Vienna today is to the
effect that Przemysl has been retaken from the Russians, after a
bombardment of twenty days'
duration. The fortress was taken
by the Russians on March 22,
after 201 days' siege. The Austrians surrendered 120,000 soldiers with the city. It is believed the expenditure of men
and ammunition by the Austro-
Germans in the Przemysl campaign has exceeded that in the
attempts to break through to
\ The Russians will make a determined effort to recover the
captured stronghold.
Paris (official): In Belgium
British troops have carried at
the point of the bayonet Chateau
Hooge, near Zonnebeke. Southeast of Neuville St. Vaast the
Germans have delivered a counter attack in the Labyrinth. We
have repulsed them and made
progress, taking some prisoners.
It is interesting to note that between May 9 and June 1 the
French division which took Carency, Albain St. Nazaire and
the sugar refinery at Souchez
have made 3100 prisoners, of
whom sixty-four are officers,
buried the bodies of 2600 Germans, and have themselves lost
in killed, wounded or missing
3200 men, of which total two-
thirds are slightly wounded. In
Champagne the Germans attempted a night attack near
Beausejour but were immediately
thrown back on their -trenches.
In the outskirts of Le Pretre
forest we repulsed two violent
Rome (official): On the Tyrol-
Trentino frontier there has been
no fighting of any importance.
Our troops advanced in the Valley of Guidicaria and occupied
Storo. and pushed on until near
Condino, linking up with the
strong Alpine detachments which
had made a descent upon the
Chiez river from the Valley of
Caffaro to Volcomonica.
London: The admiralty announces that one of the several
British submarines in the Sea of
Marmora sank a large German
transport yesterday, in Pander-
ma Bay.
Rome: As the outcome of an
effective reconnaissance, extending beyond the head of the Val-
dogna, we captured some enemy
stores. The bad weather which
prevailed throughout the whole
of the day prevented more extensive operations.
On the Freuili frontier we have
occupied the ridge on the left
bank of the Isonzo, about six
miles to the northwest of Tol-
mina. On the afternoon of May
31 the enemy tried to dislodge
us from the occupied positions by
means of violent counterattacks,
but was everywhere repulsed.
Amsterdam: German coast batteries near Ostend are put out of
commission by bombs from a
squadron of Allied aeroplanes
which raided the coast on Tuesday.
Rome: A fleet of Austrian
aeroplanes has raided the western part of Montenegro, bombarding Scutari, Antivari and
various other towns.
Petrograd. The war office says
"The battle in Galicia continued
on June 1 with the same desperation on the whole front, from
the Vistula to the region ol Nad-
worna. On the left bank of the
lower San our troops, after a
powerful advance on June 2,
finally pierced the enemy's lines
and captured an important posi-
on which the enemy had fortified in the region of Rounyick,
where we took about 4000 pris
oners, some guns and numerous
machine guns. Our offensive on
front as far as the mouth of the
Wisloka continues to develop
successfully. As Przemysl, in
view of the state of its artillery
and its works which were destroyed by the Austrians before
they surrendered, was regarded
as incapable of defending itself,
its maintenance in our hands
only served our purpose until
such time as our possession of
positions surrounding the town
on the northwest facilitated our
operations on the San. The
enemy, having captured Jaroslau
and Radymno and begun to
spread along the right bank of
river, the maintenance of these
positions forced our troops to
fight on an unequal and very
difficult front, increasing it by
about twenty-four miles and subjecting the troops occupying
these positions to concentrated
fire of the enemy's numerous
"West of Rudnik we almost
completely annihilated the second, third and fourth Tyrol regiments. On the Bzura, on Tuesday, the enemy sent out a great
cloud of gas which, owing to the
change in the wind, was carried
back into the enemy's trenches,
compelling a large number of
Germans to leave the trenches
along a wide front. Our fire
decimated them as they fled."
Russian forces south of Libau,
which is held by the Germans,
have cut the latter's line of communication with Memel, depriving the enemy of connection with
his base of supply. The Russians
are now attacking Libau.
London: Germany is completing a new submarine every week.
A considerable portion of these
comes from the Antwerp yards
and are being sent to sea under
the neutral waters of Scheldt.
Rome: An official statement issued tonight says reports of
preparatory movements along
the entire front shows that the
situation continues to develop
in favor of the Italians, who
have assumed an effective offensive against the Austrians, who
are strongly entrenched and supported by powerful artillery.
London: The Swedish steamer
Lapland and the Danish schooner
Salvador have been torpedoed in
the North Sea by German submarines.
Fired for Disloyalty
A naturalized resident of the
Bulkley Valley, who was in
charge of a road crew, was so
ill-advised as to express approval
of the sinking of the Lusitania
and make other disloyal remarks.
He was promptly and permanently discharged.
Canadian Lead and Copper
The production of lead in Canada for the purpose of the war
has now reached 60,000 tons.
The proposal to refine copper in
this country is still receiving consideration. It has been pointed
out that the freight rates on
copper matte shipped to the
American refineries is $10 per
ton besides the duty. Then there
is the freight charge and the
duty on the refined copper shipped back to Canada. The establishing of a copper refinery in
Canada would also serve as a
regulator of foreign combines.
