to defraud the United States by
allegations under oath that the

Rocher de Boule Busy
Rev. J. R. Hewitt, who visited
Rocher de Boule during the
week, was much impressed with
the mining activity on the hill.
He states that the company proposes to run the upper tramway
night and day, allowing daily
shipments of 150 tons.
Petrograd, June 12 : ��� Official
reports tell of additional success
on the Dneister, near Stry, where
Russian troops captured several
villages from the Germans, with
28 guns and many prisoners, and
drove the enemy across the river
after beating back their reinforcements and capturing an entire company of Austrians.
On the left bank of the Dub-
ysza the Russians took the offensive, and in a night attack captured 400 prisoners, with guns
and other booty.
At Otynia, on the Pruth line,
1100 prisoners were captured,
including a portion of the Prussian Guard.
Stanislau has been occupied.
Military experts believe the
sharp turn of events in Galicia
will prevent any considerable
transfer of German troops to the
Italian or west front.
London, June 12:���The success
of the Russian forces this week
has caused gratification and relief. Military experts now look
for a repetition in Galicia of the
occurrences before Warsaw last
winter, when the Germans suffered enormous losses in their
efforts to break the Russian
front on the Bzura and Rawka.
On this occasion, as then, Russ-
ian reinforcements arrived in
time to force back a portion of
General Dinsingen's army which
had crossed the Dneister river,
near Zurawna, before it could be
strengthened and entrenched.
Military men express their belief that very few of those who
crossed the river could have escaped.
Russians claim that further up
the Dneister, directly south of
Lemberg, they have pressed
their opponents back and have
taken 2000 prisoners, while near
Mosciska, to the east of Przemysl. the Germar.s suffered very
severely when they attacked the
Russian position. In Eastern

Albanian port on the Straits of
Otranto, Serbians are marching
across northern Albania towards
the port of Durazzo, while the
Montenegrins are making for the
port of Alessio, still further
north. For some time Albania
has been overrun by bands which
it is alleged were organized by
Austrians and Turks to harass
Serbia, and in fact these bands
have more than once invaded
Serbian territory. The opinion
is generally accepted here that
these occupations will probably
spell the end of Albanian integrity. 	
Heavy fighting continues along
the Italian frontier, particularly
on the River Isonzo, where the
Austrians are making a determined effort to stem the Italian

Canadians have no good reason to fear that the hard times
resulting from the war will have a permanent effect on the Dominion. That trade in Canada has passed the period of greatest depression and already exhibits signs of a sound revival in many lines
appears to be the opinion of the majority of representative business
men.throughout the Dominion who have contributed their views to
a comprehensive survey of conditions which has just been completed by the C. N. R. Less than ten per cent of those responding
confess to a gloomy outlook; more than ninety per cent, numbering
more than two thousand, report themselves as optimistic as far as
the immediate future is concerned. Practically all are agreed that
trade conditions will rapidly return to normal after the restoration
of peace. A large number is convinced that if the harvest of 1915
is up to expectation domestic business will be satisfactory in all
the provinces.
According to the special reports sent in by the various departments of agriculture, prospects of a good yield on a largely increased acreage are bright throughout the Dominion. With the
incentive of prevailing high prices, farmers have devoted more
time and care to cultivation and generally appear to have used this
year seed of higher germinating quality than ever before; it seems
to be safe to assume that if only an average crop per acre is harvested, the total output will be larger than in any year since the
growing of grain was commenced in the Western Provinces. The
acreage in British Columbia is said to have bte.i more than
The improvement in conditions in Great Britain, following on
the organization of the coalition cabinet, had,led to the suggestion,
voiced in numerous quarters, that a coalition government in Canada would be advantageous at this time. On this question we are
inclined to adopt the view of the Financial Post, which says:
"We can see no gain in such a change. Sir Robert Borden
has colleagues eminent as to ability and who undoubtedly command the respect of Canadians."
At the same time, the Post, which is an influential and independent journal, holds that, under the present system, "our governments are formed on the wrong lines. Men are elected to fill
cabinet positions because of their party standing���the influence
they wield and the power they have to control electoral districts
and not because of their capacity to administer their departments
efficiently. They are expected to handle their department, primarily with a view to political advantages, in securing for their
party the maximum number of votes."

Two weeks ago, The Miner took occasion to criticize the
Liberal proposals to change the mining laws of the province, as
reported and endorsed by the Herald, of New Hazelton. Yesterday's issue of that paper refers to the matter, but, as usual, substitutes abuse for argument. Instead*of attempting to defend the
fallacious policy for which it was formerly so enthusiastic, the
Herald indulges in a characteristic personal attack, accusing us of
having failed in various lines of endeavor which we have not
attempted. Finally, as the most damning charge, we are accused
of having failed as editor of The Miner. True it is that we have
not succeeded in making this an ideal newspaper���we are quite
willing to admit that The Miner has its shortcomings���but we believe that in any accounting it will be held in our favor that we
have endeavored to keep our paper free from the vilification and
mudslinging which have been such prominent features of our New
Hazelton contemporary.

Ablain, at Souchez, at Neuville,
and at Eeure, An attack by us
southeast of Hebuterne has been
completely successful. We carried by assault two of the enemy's lines and the Toutvent
farm, taking four hundred prisoners, of whom seven were offi-
cers and capturing some machine
guns, the exact number of which
is not yet established. Several
hundred bodies of German dead
were found on the ground. A
single German counter attack
was delivered, but this was
checked immediately. North of
the.Aisne the enemy has multiplied desperate efforts to recapture the two lines of trenches
which we took yesterday, after
having brought up reinforcements in automobiles for a distance of about 50 miles. The
enemy made a furious counter
attack, but was completely repulsed.
Two thousand German killed

made 250 prisoners, among whom
were an artillery officer and 28
non-commissioned officers. We
captured six machine guns and
many others were found under
the ruins. We have destroyed
by melinite the three 77 pieces
which fell into our hands yesterday. They were down behind
the second German trench which
we occupied, and it was not possible to bring them into our lines
by reason of the violence of the

Wednesday, June 9
Paris (official)': In the region
of Notre Dame de Lorette there
has been a very spirited artillery
engagement today. Our infantry
has everywhere consolidated the
positions previously gained and
has made new advances. At
Neuville St. Vaast we have carried the entire group of houses
west of the village, also additional houses in the principal
street north of this group. In
Labyrinth our troops repulsed a
violent counterattack and slightly increased their progress.
South of Hebuterne we have
maintained the gains of yesterday and last night notwithstanding a strong attack delivered by
two German battalions which
were brought up hastily in automobiles from the region to the
east of Arras. Following this
we continued our progress on a
front of about 1200 meters. The
enemy violently bombarded
trenches which we took from
him yesterday north of the Aisne,
I near Moulin Sous Toutvent. This
i bombardment, to which our artillery vehemently responded,
j was not followed by a counter
Petrograd: Violent fighting between the Germans and Russians
is developing in Poland. In
northern Poland, north of Ostrol-
enka, Germans are struggling to
renew their offensive. Farther
to the south, in the region of
Przasnysz, a great artillery duel
has developed. Official reports
indicate that the Russians have
begun to press hard against Field
Marshal von Hinderburg's German forces in Poland, to offset
Austro-German pressure in Galicia. Five thousand Austro-Ger-
mans were killed and 7200 were
taken prisoners i n a bloody
engagement in southeast Galicia,
the war oflice announced today.
These severe losses were suffered
by the enemy on one sector alone,
between Kolomea and Nad worna.
Along other positions of the bat-
tlefront in southeast Galicia the
enemy also lost heavily in killed.
Thursday, June 10
Paris (official): Artillery fighting continued very violently in
the sector north of Arras. We
carried last night and this morning the houses in Neuville St.
Vaast which the enemy still held.
All villages on the east side are
in our power.
In the Labyrinth our advance
is being followed up, notably in
the southeastern section. In the
region about Hebuterne, notwithstanding a violent bombardment, we extended our positions
around the Toutvent farm. In
the region east of Tracy-le-Mont,
at the Quennevieres farm, a
counter attack by the enemy
was completely checked. We
have strengthened all ground
gained by us on June 6. On the
rest of the front there is nothing
to report.
Rome (official): Reports re"
ceived of operations on June 7
and 8 show that the Italians, in
pursuing along the Isonzo river
the task of dislodging the Austrians from natural positions and
establishing bridgeheads, are displaying great bravery and tenacity in face of heavy obstacles,
intensified by floods.
We have occupied the town of
Monfalcone, sixteen miles northwest of Trieste, near the Adriatic. Our losses were not serious,
while we took 470 Austrian prisoners.
Geneva: A despatch to the
Tribune from Laibach says:
"Austrian artillery at Tolmina
has suffered heavy damage from
the Italian bombardment. Austrian losses are becoming serious,
as Italian fire is singularly well
directed. An ammunition depot
has been blown up at Tolmino.
There were three hundred victims.
"Passage of the Isonzo by
Italians is being effected normally owing to the activity of
pontoon corps work, which is undeterred by Austrian fire. Italians also are seeking to cross
the river at Benzonca, where
Austrians are hurriedly trying to
throw up defences."
London: The Russians have
succeeded in gaining breathing
space with a counter offensive at
the center of the Galician line,
where they took 2000 prisoners
near Przemysl. The Germans
failed in an attempt to force the
crossing of the Dneister at every
point  except   Zurawana,   forty
miles from Lemburg.
Berlin admits the retreat of
the Germans from the Russian
Baltic positions.
The crew of the trawler Velocity landed at Hartlepool, after
52 hours in an open boat without
food or water. Their vessel was
torpedoed by a German submarine.
Friday, June 11
London: The Russian official
statement says the Czar's forces,
in this week's success along the
Dneister, captured 6700 German
officers and men, 17 cannon, and
47 machine guns. It is believed
here that the check will prove a
severe blow to the Austro-Ger-
mans and will relieve the pressure on Lemburg.
Geneva: Italians are fighting,
on the Isonzo river, their first
great battle against the Austrian
forces, for the possession of Cor-
izia. The fight is still raging,
without decisive feature. Austrian artillery has several times
forced the Italian infantry back,
while to the east of the city the
Italian artillery has opened great
gaps in the ranks of the enemy,
whose losses so far exceed 8000.
Coriziais filled with wounded.
London: The steamer Strath-
carron and the Russian bark
Thomasina were torpedoed, and
two fishing smacks were sunk in
the North Sea by Zeppelins.
Paris: An artillery combat is
in progress north of Arras, but
has been  retarded by dense fog.
Reports show that Neuville St.
Vaast was taken by the French
after a desperate resistance, in
which the Germans, giving way
foot by foot, defended house
after house until the French had
complete possession.
In houses, passages and cellars
over 1000 German dead were
In Hebuterne region, on June
8, the Allies captured six machine guns.
German attacks on trenches in
the Beausejour region, in Champagne, were all repulsed.
At Les Eparges the French artillery silenced the enemy's batteries.
Rome: The Allies have discovered, on an island off the
coast of Asia Minor, a large supply of benzine, intended for the
German submarines in the Dardanelles.
Petrograd: The official statement on operations in Caucasus
reports the capture of the vast
district of Van and part of the
Sanjak of Moush. Khalil Bey's
original army has been annihilated, and Russian troops occupy
a great extent of Turkish territory.
