ARTILLERY BATTLES GENERAL
RUSSIANS CAPTURE 3000 PRISONERS
-HEAVY FIGHTING EAST AND WEST
Petrograd, Feb. 6, Report by
the general staff of the Russian
army: ���"Combats on tha Bzura
and Rawka rivers continue with
undiminished energy. In an offensive movement, our troops
crossed the Bzura, near its
mouth, captured a portion of the
enemy's position near Dakhova,
and dislodged the Germans from
their bridge head. In the vicinity of Borgimow, Goumine and
Wolaszdlowieeka, our attacks alternate incessantly with those of
the enemy, under unbrcken artillery fire. On remainder of the
left bank of the Vistula front,
the artillery fire has diminished
somewhat. We blew up a bridge
on the Nida, which had just been
constructed by the enemy near
the village of Gerniki, and repulsed several attempts by the enemy
to launch an offensive on the
Nida, near Rembowel.
In the northwest Carpathians,
in the direction of Oujok, we
continued the offensive, and took
as many as 3,000 prisoners. To
the southeast of Oujok, we are
still being subjected to very high
pressure by the enemy's forces."
Amsterdam:���Several German
submarines have been sent to
Zeebrugge from the naval base
at Wilhelmshaven and Cuxhaven.
It is assumed that Zeebrugge
will be the base of naval operations which Germany will deliver
against the transports carrying
England's new army across the
channel to France.
Amsterdam:���The movement
of the German troops to the
western front continues.
Paris, Feb. 6, Official communication:���During the night of
Feb. 4-5, some German contingents endeavored, but without
success, to advance from their
trenches before Notre Dame de
Lorette. Our artillery has done
some very effective shooting in
the valley of the Aisne. In
Champagne, to the north of
Beausejour,   our   troops   made
some slight progress during Friday. In Argonne, we have consolidated our position on the
ground which we captured on
Feb. 4, at Bagatelle. In Alsace
the German attack to the south
of Altkirch was repulsed.
London, Feb. 6:���Indignation
is expressed by the French, Swedish and Italian press at the German Admiralty's announcement
of a submarine blockade. The
"Paper Blockade" was received
with ridicule in England.
Paris, Official:���There were
satisfactory artillery engagements yesterday, between Arras
and Rheims. In Woevre and
Argonne, artillery dispersed convoys and set fire to 24 wagons.
A German captive balloon was
brought down northeast of
Somme.
Cairo:���600 Turkish prisoners,
three guns and 90 camels, loaded
with stores and ammunition
have been captured by the British.
STORY OF THE GREAT WAR TOLD DAY BY DAY
London, Feb. 1:���"Our men, in
many cases, fought with bayonets in their hands and even knocked out many Germans with their
fists. A story is told of one man
who broke into a house held by
eight Germans, bayoneted four
of them and captured the rest,
while he continued to suck on his
clay pipe," said an official eyewitness with the British expeditionary forces, in a description
of the battle of Jan. 25, when
Germans attacked the British
north and south of La Bassee
and succeeded in capturing some
of their trenches, which a French
official report today says have all
been retaken.
The battle, which commenced
early in the morning, was preceded by the usual artillery duels.
"At eight o'clock in the morning," says the eyewitness, "the
Germans launched an assault
against the British and French
on the south side of the canal
and at one point penetrated outlines. About the same time they
strongly attacked our troops at
Givenchy, north of the canal, and
passing over our front trenches,
temporarily gained a foothold in
places. But as their infantry
surged forward through the village, our men met them with
cold steel, killing 100 with the
bayonet. Fighting then proceeded for some hours at close
quarters,  and by noon we had
reoccupied the whole of our
original trenches around the
village. Germans showed the
utmost determination in this
quarter, delivering no less than
five attacks on the northeast
corner of Givenchy."
London:���The toll, taken by
the German submarine U21, in
a raid on Saturday afternoon
in the Irish Sea, in the vicinity
of Liverpool, stands at three
ships, the steamers Ben Cruach-
en, Linda Blanche and the Kil-
coan, the latter a small vessel.
The crew of the Kilcoan was
landed on the Isle of Man today
by a coastwise steamer. In addition, a German submarine has
torpedoed two British steamers
in the Euglish Channel. neat-
Havre, the Toko Maru and the
Icaria. The Irish Sea raider
easily made her escape, and shipping interests are confident that
she has returned to her base and
have ordered resumption of normal traffic today.
The following report from the
staff of the Russian army of the
Caucasus was given out: "On
the Sari Katysh front, on the
evening of Jan. 27, one of out-
columns, profiting by a snow
storm, crossed the '-est of the
mountain and seized, after a
violent struggle, the village of
Garness, making prisoners there
the chief of the 13th Turkish
division, his staff of sixteen offi
cers, seven surgeons, and 450
others, and cepturing three cannon, more than 200 rifles, a convoy train and a large quantity
of war munitions and provisions.
The next day the Turks attacked
this column, but were repulsed
by counter attack, with great
loss, abandoning to us a rapid-
firing gun. Elsewhere, there
have been the usual  fusilades."
Paris, Feb. 2, Official communication:���The night of Jan. 31-
Feb. 1, was quiet. In the morning of Feb. 1, the enemy made a
violent attack on our trenches on
the road of La Bassee. The
attack was repulsed and the Germans left a large number of dead
on the field. At Beaumonthamel,
to the north of Albert, German
infantry attempted a surprise
against one of our trenches, but
were obliged to take flight, abandoning explosives with which
they had been provided.
Official.���In Argonne there has
been great activity in the regions
of Pontaine-Madame and the
Forest of La Grurie. An attack
by Germans was repelled near
Bagatelle. One of our trenches,
which was demolished by two
mines, was evacuated without
loss. In Vosges and in Alsace
there is no action to report. The
snowfall has been very abundant.

Vol. IV.
Saturday, February 6, 19] 5.
No. 23
The annual report of the Hazelton Hospital, which was placed
before the patrons of that institution last week, and is now available for general distribution, shows a splendid record of achievement
for the past year. The statistics show that 306 patients were
treated during the year, being a slight increase over the attendance
in any previous year. An interesting item in this connection 's
that twenty-six countries are represented in this total. One of
the outstanding features of the report, is that dealing with the mortality rate, which was 3.06 per cent. This is an exceptionally low
figure, and one that the most modern city hospitals seldom equa'.
During the year, the equipment has been supplemented by the addition of a first-class lighting and water system, a Kelly-Koett X-ray
machine and an ambulance, all of which are giving splendid service and have helped to increase the efficiency for which the
Hazelton Hospital has always been noted. The Superintendent
and staff are indeed to be congratulated on the splendid showing
made during the year, and the hearty support of the entire district
is due those who are striving to maintain the high standard which
has been reached.
In a recent address before the
Prince Rupert Board of Trade,
on "Agriculture in the North,"
Mr. A. H. Tomlinson, of the department of agriculture, says in

and the small lakes; also  Fraser

In the district surrounding
Hazelton. mixed farming should
be practiced with a leaning towards grain, fodder, etc., as well
as fruits on the slopes. The fact
must not be overlooked that for
the Skeena district, livestock
must be Riven a place. As yet
only small numbers can be provided for, but as time goes on,
the farmer must increase his
stock in proportion to the land
under cultivation, and this will J
enhance the fertility of the soil.
Some splendid timber exists in
parts of the Skeena valleys which
it will not be wise to ruthlessly
destroy, because as mines open
up, such timber will be useful
and needed. Eastern Canada
and the United States have learned a lesson that it will be wise to
conserve the best timber. Of
course British Columbia is doing
likewise.
Referring to markets, Mr. Tomlinson said: "Prince Rupert i?-,

Minty Holds Record
From a lengthy article in the
"News-Advertiser," on the passing of the "B-X" Express Co.,
and entitled, "A Marvellous Record," the following is taken: -
"In these days of rush and hurry,

airships and submarines, London is in darkness, prepared for
a raid. The enemy were driven
olT to the Eastward.
Washington: ��� Great Britain
notified the United Slates today

In the center, our men, firmly
established in brick fields, gave
the Germans a very warm reception and the latter fell back,
leaving fifty dead in front of this
point alone. To the south of this
they temporarily gained possession of a small portion of one of
our trenches, but they were immediately counter-attacked with
the bayonet and every man in
the trench was killed. The same
thing happened when they tried
to take the Bethune road,  where
| the Germans gained  another of
lour trenches, only to be bayon-
eted to a man. After the fighting was over, the enemy's dead
j to the estimated number of two
hundred, lay back all along outline.

the enemy attempted to cross the
Suez Canal, near Toussoum (35

troops attacked and the enemy
Bed in disorder, leaving all matt-rial in our hands. Several of
the enemy were drowned.
The enemy also attacked on
the El Kantara front (40 miles
south of Port Said) at daylight

and 40 prisoners. Our casualties were three men wounded.
British forces had a skirmish
with the Turks yesterday, in the
neighborhood of Ismalia, on Lake
Timsah, Suez Canal. The Turks
finally retreated. The British

sandstorm, but the shooting of
the Turks, both with rifle and

have occurred in Belgium, and
to the north of Arras, west of the
road between Lille and Arras.

trenches, north of Albert. By
the very efficient shooting of our
artillery in the valley of the Aisne,
German batteries were silenced,
caissons were blown up, men engaged in construction work were
dispersed and aeroplanes put to
flight. In front of Verdun, they
brought down an aeroplane, taking the aviators prisoners. Heavy
snowfalls are reported in Vosges.
There has been painstaking
trench fighting with saps and
hand grenades,   near   Altkirch.

An official despatch from Vienna, dated Jan. 30, says the Russian army's attempt to outflank
Archduke Ferdinand's army near

two lines of trenches and entered
Wola. In the Carpathians, we
advanced on Oujok, taking 2,000
prisoners and 10 machine  guns.
