GERMANS TRAPPED AND ROUTED IN POLAND
RUSSIANS SURROUND AND CAPTURE FIFTY THOUSAND
-BRITISH WARSHIPS DESTROY GERMAN NAVAL PORT
Petrograd, Nov. 28:���Further despatches from Russian Poland
indicate the decisive character of the defeat of the German forces
under the Crown Prince and General von Hindenberg by the Russian troops. An entire German army corps of fifty thousand was
surrounded and surrendered in a body. Another army corps was
completely routed, many detachments being captured. An army
of Cossacks is in pursuit of the scattered and fleeing enemy.
In the southern zone the Russian forces maintain the offensive
with great vigor, attacking the enemy along the Czenstochowa-
Cracow line with redoubled intensity.
London, Nov. 28:���Despatches from Amsterdam give further
details of the successful British bombardment of Germany's intended naval base at Zeebrugge. The first shell from the warships burst among the fleet of submarines which had been brought
in sections by rail from the Baltic, and killed twenty men on their
decks. After a score of shells had fallen, the submarines dived,
with orders to run the gauntlet and attack the fleet. Several of
the craft returned; but the fate of the others is unknown.
The utter destruction of the German naval works at Zeebrugge
is confirmed.
The condition of affairs on the battlefront in Belgium is comparatively calm. The Anglo-French forces, with the Belgians cooperating, are drawing nearer to Ostend, and may seek to retake
that city with the aid of warships. The gaps in the line of the
Allied armies resulting from the desperate German attacks of the
last fortnight have all been filled by fresh troops, and the forces
are ready for ah advance. .   ., _.    _.._.,
A German officer, taken prisoner and brought to Paris, says
the Germans intended to make one more attempt to break through
the Allies' line before Sunday, and that if unsuccessful a general
retreat would be ordered.
A British and French warship squadron is protecting the Suez
Canal and the Egyptian coast. British transports have landed h
large force of Indian troops at Suez.
It is now reported that the German cruisers which were in
Chilean ports on Nov. 1 have not yet sailed. If they have been
interned, no advice has been received by the British government.
Despatches from Constantinople say the Sultan of Turkey has
proclaimed a Holy War against Britain, France and Russia, calling
upon all Mussulmans to fight with the Germans.
An admiralty enquiry into the destruction of the Bulwark has
confirmed the theory that the explosion resulted from the dropping
of a 12-inch lyddite shell on the floor of the magazine. There has
been considerable speculation on the possibility of the disastei
having been caused by a German spy. Lord Haldane, in a speech
on the spy question, said the most dangerous spies in Great Britain
are British.
Chancellor Lloyd George says the government war loan of a
billion and a half has been greatly oversubscribed.
Reports state that the Servian army has been successful in
recent operations against the Austrians.
According to Petrograd advices, the Kaiser some months ago
proposed to Japan that She should fight against Russia in the wa>
for which Germany was then preparing plans. The Japanese
government flatly refused.
Ottawa, Nov. 28:-*��The Dominion government has given order;-
for forty armored motor cars of the most approved model, for _
motor machine gun battery.

August 17th last.
is
position of the opposing armies on the western battle front.
Between Arras and Oise the artillery of the Allies yesterday
destroyed many lines of German trenches. The Germans bombarded Ypres, destroying the City Hall and many other buildings.
Other districts in the zone of conflict in France and Belgium are
reported quiet.
In the eastern struggle, the German armies endeavoring to
break through to.Warsaw are held in check, the great battle which
has been in progress between the Vistula and Warta rivers for
several days is still without result. The whole eastern campaign
of the Germans is said to depend on the outcome of winter conditions, the frozen ground preventing the enemy from entrenching.
The stronghold of Przemysl, beseiged for weeks by the Russians, is believed to be nearly out of ammunition. The garrison
offered to surrender if the Austrian soldiers were allowed to join
their army. This the Russians refused. Attacks on the fortress
have been resumed, and the Russians are confident that it will soon
fall into their hands.
There is great uncertainty as to the progress of the operations
in Turkey and in the Caucasus, conflicting reports being received
from different sources. No news of importance was sent out by
Constantinople last night.
In official reports by the Servian military authorities, the Austrian claims of victory over the Serbs are denied.
The government of Chile, which has been enforcing the rules
of neutrality, has ordered out her fleet to capture two German
supply ships, which left the port of Valparaiso without clearances.
They will endeavor to provision the German warships now in the
South Pacific.  ,
London, Nov. 24:���The admiralty announces the sinking of a'
German submarine, off the coast of Scotland. The vessel raised a
white flag after the first shot by the British patrol, which rescued
the crew.
A despatch from Copenhagen tells of the destruction by the
British of a German destroyer.   Most of the crew were rescued.
The Russians have taken the city of Gumbinnen, in East
Prusuia. Petrograd reports say the situation is satisfactory, from
a Russian point of view. The position stragetically is of extreme
interest. Russians are moving forward on East Prussia on the
north and on Cracow on the south, while in the center the Germans
are driving the Russian line back on Poland and straining every
effort to break through. They have strongly entrenched positions
on the Vistula and Warthe, but even their complete success here,
the Russians say, cannot avert the hammer stroke the Russian
commander is preparing for them.
British aviators on Saturday raided Freiderichshaven, on Lake
Constance, 225 miles within the German border, and dropped
bombs which destroyed the Zeppelin factory at that point.
German warships have maintained a naval station, where they
have provisioned and coaled, out of Valparaiso. Chile is determined to stop the breaches of her neutrality by the Germans, evei
at the cost of war.
A Rotterdam despatch says no civilians are allowed within two
miles of Zeebruge. It is known that big engineering works ar<
in progress. The entire coast from Knocke to Nieuport bristles
with gun positions. The German artillery is regarded as of sufficient caliber and range to be effective against warships attempting
to bombard the littoral. This is said to be the first step in th(
Geaman scheme of fortification preparatory to an attack on England.
The Turks have reached a point on the Suez Canal.
Placards calling for peace are reported to have appeared on
the walls of Berlin.
Growing dissensions between the German and Austrian officer.
are reported, in Dutch despatches.
Ottawa has issued orders to officers commanding military dis
tricts throughout Canada to prepare for recruiting on a mucl
larger scale. Canada's contribution to the army at the front wil
be increased to 108,000 men. The forces under arms in Canada
will be brought up to a strength of 58,000.
Five prisoners of war were killed and twelve wounded in I
detention camp on the Isle of Man, as a result of a desperad
effort to escape and seize ships, in which they expected to reach
the continent.
London, Nov. 25: -The great battle between the Vistula and
Warthe rivers has apparently turned in favor of the Czar's forces.
Official statements from Petrograd say that Von Hindenburg's
army is retreating. The German forces engaged numbered 400,
000. These are now reported separated and thousands have been
surrounded snd taken prisoners. In cases, the fleeing enemy
abandoned their guns. Even the German official reports suggest
that Von Hindenburg's second thrust against Warsaw has been
checked.
The battle of Lodz is still in progress, although the Russians,
after yesterday's successes, have the ascendancy.
A reportflf Sunday's battle in Russian Armenia has been received. The Turks were defeated, over six thousand being captured by the Russians.
On the Czenstochowa-Cracow front the battle is developing
successfully for the Russians. The enemy's attempted counter
attacks have been repulsed.
Reinforced by the arrival of the fourth contingent of fresh
troops, the Germans have resumed the offensive in Flanders, between Arras and the sea. Yesterday was relatively quiet along
the battle front, with intermittent cannonading at Ypres, Soissons
and Rheims. As yet the Germans have not attempted a renewal
of the concentrated attempt to break through the Allies' line. It
is reported that the stage is being set for another desperate attack
on the Franco-British front, and that a supreme effort to break

FOR A PERMANENT BRIDGE
Meeting Tonight to Discuss Important Question of River
Crossing.
The winter bridge at the ferry
crossing was damaged on Wednesday by unusually high water.
A mudslide up the river backed
the water up for a time, and
when released the flood carried
out several bents. The incident
has caused a renewal of the agita-
1 ion for a permanent bridge at
.his point and strong representations will be made to the provincial government, in the effort
Lo secure a good bridge.
The business men of Hazelton
have called a public meeting of
citizens for tonight, to discuss

in Hazelton, which was to have
opened on Nov. 30, has been
postponed, owing to the illness
of Judge Young.
Trains Delayed

but now lying dormant, only
waiting for a repetition of more
successes throughout the coast
range of British Columbia."
Those who realize that the great basic industry of mining is
going to prove the greatest factor in the development and prosperity of British Columbia will be gratified to learn that Dr. Brock,
lately chief of the Dominion Geological Survey, and now dean of
the faculty of applied science in the British Columbia University,
has accepted the presidency of the Vancouver Chamber of Mines.
This organization, while it bears the name of Vancouver, is composed of mining men operating in every district of the province,
and will undoubtedly meet with a considerable measure of success
in its efforts to advance the mining industry. We regard the
connection now established between the Chamber of Mines and
the provincial university as a most encouraging sign of the times.
In the person of Professor Brock, the Chamber has a president of
wide experience and great ability, as well qualified for the office he
has now accepted as for the high position he occupies in the
.university.
We hope to see mining courses of extended scope included in
the curriculum of our new seat of learning, and particularly short,
winter course., similar to those which have proved so popular in
the college of mines of the University of Washington. There are
many men, engaged in prospecting and mining in this province,
who would gladly take advantage of a three months'session of
lectures and demonstrations on mining subjeets. Such a course,
designed to meet the needs of men who desire to know more of the
technical side of prospocting, mining, and assaying, would be of
untold benefit to the industry. There is no reason why such a
program should not be adopted. As in the American university,
short course students should have no fees or charges to pay except
for materials actually used.
It would be well for those interested in this subject to bring
it to the attention of the provincial authorities, who may be expected to look with favor upon a proposal so evidently practical
ar.d beneficial to the mining industry.

Mining and Business
The New York Herald some
time ago had this to say of the
mining industry:
"It is undeniable that the most
influential men in the business
world have turned their attention
to mining, tue source of nearly
all wealth. Those persons who
have been enslaved to the idea
that the only safe proposition is
a five per cent or six per cent
security now realize that many
millions of interest have been lost
to them through heeding the
advice of those who are interested
in cheap money. Further, the
richest men in the world are
mining 'kings, many of whom
have grown powerful through
the proper application of originally a moderate capital, and it is
proved that while millions of dollars have been lost in railroads,
farm mortgages, eastern indus
trials and building associations,
the American mining industry
has steadily advanced, making
enormors profits for its supporters, building great states and
cities, and pointing with pride to
the American possessions of 253
mines that have paid in dividends
over $625,000,000."

Calais at any cost.
Tho Paris official communique states that in the last five day's
fighting in the region of Ypres, the infantry lost no positions and
in places gained ground, destroying German guns. On Nov. 19 20
the French Zouaves, in hand-to-hand fighting, captured trenches
filled with German dead.
Important developments are looked for in the immediate
future, the entry of Portugal, which has definitely decided to take
the part of the Allies, is likely to be followed by the participation
of Italy and the Balkan states. Portuguese troops are now
mobilizing.
Semi-official reports say the Scandinavian nations will form a
defensive alliance against all the belligerent powers.
The Turkish government, according to Greek advices, has
forbidden all subjects of the Allied powers, with the exception of
women, and children  under 18, to leave Turkish territory.
In Constantinople, the British embassy was ransacked, the
Russian hospital was pillaged, and many foreigners were abused.
Internal disorder is rife throughout the Ottoman empire.
Reports of Turkish successes at Suez were German fabrications.
British operations on the Persian Gulf have been even more
rapid and successful than anticipated. The Turks were signally
defeated, leaving guns and wounded in the hands of the British.

A Danish steamer collided with a German destroyer. The
latter sank with all on board.
The German arrested in West Africa for an attempt to blow up
the gunboat Dwarf with an infernal machine, proved to be a missionary. He declared he was a soldier first and a missionary afterwards.
It has been proved that the Germans violated the neutrality of
Chile, their cruisers staying several days at Juan Fernandez
Islands, where they captured neutral ships and seized coal and
provisions.    Chile is considering forcible action.
There is brisk speculation at Lloyd's on the war ending by
March.

London: Nov. 26:���A serious blow to the Germans was dealt by
a British naval squadron, which steamed close to Zeebrugge, which
the enemy had selected as a naval base, and in a three-hours'
bombardment, destroyed a number of German submarines, which
had been brought overland in sections. The city is reported afire.
The Allies' ships destroyed large quantities of stores and war
material, which the enemy had been collecting for weeks, in
preparation for an attack on England.
Between Ypres and the sea there have been infantry attacks
of some importance. The Allies gained territory between Lang-
marcke and Zonnebecke. In the vicinity of La Bassee, the trench
es which were lost on Tuesday were retaken, three officers, 100
men and a motor machine gun battery being taken from the enemy.
At Belincourt, northwest of Verdun, a German attack was repulsed. Suspension of hostilities was requested by the enemy,
but refused.
The Russians are now pressing the Germans back from Lodz,
where a battle has been raging for several days. Petrograd also
reports success against the Austrians in Galicia and the Turks in
the passes of the Carpathian mountains. The Czar's forces captured another Austrian general, with forty officers and 4000 troops.
Russians have occupied the Hungarian city of Homonni.
A pitched battle between German and Austrian troops in the
streets of Przemysl is reported to have followed the action of the
Germans in hanging the Austrian commander of the fortress because he had planned its surrender to the Russians.

grave, England is fully prepared lo repel any attempts on the part
oi the enemy.
Odds of ten to six are given at Lloyd's that the war will end
before the close of March.
Remarkable work on the part of the Indian troops is reported
from the front.
Chilean warships have sailed to intercept German vessels. The
American steamer, Sacramento, formerly the German Alexandria,
from San Francisco with coal and provisions, ostensibly for Valparaiso, transshipped her cargo to German warships in the territorial
waters of Chile. Knowledge of this has caused strong feeling in
Chile.
Two steamers, which intended to sail from San Francisco, with
cargoes similar to that of the Sacramento, have been refused clearance, under instructions of the treasury department.
British and French warships have attacked the Austrian fleet,
in the Adriatic.    The result has not yet transpired.

German force today. The enemy's army is estimated to have
numbered half a million men, comprised in eleven army corps. The
Germans suffered enormous losses. If is estimated that the Russians captured 50,000 prisoners.
London, Nov. 27:���Lord Kitchener annouces the defeat of the
German army in Poland, with the heaviest losses yet suffered by
any forces in the war. The German-Austrian rout in Russian
Poland is complete.     The enemy was enticed into a skilfully  laid
trap by the strategists of the Russian army.
Forty-eight trains have been despatched from Warsaw to bring
in the prisoners and wounded from the Lodz battlefield.

which held positions on the Vistula, lo retreat.

loading ammunition, She was anchored in the naval port, of
Sheerness when the disaster occurred. Only twelve of her complement of 750 were saved. The Bulwark wus built fifteen years ago,
and was of 15,000 tons displacement.
Lord Kitchener, in the house of lords, referred to the German
advance toward Dunkirk and the attempted dash for Calais. He
said a British cavalry force extending over seven miles of trenches,
threw back overwhelming numbers of the enemy in two days'
fighting. When reinforcements of Indian troops arrived the march
towards Calais was stopped.

Turks. They have taken many prisoners and quantities of ammunition and stores. The roads are said to be strewn with the
