the claims comprising the group
were located by Henry Bretzins,

shipping mine to the list.

his headquarters.

No. 42
Those who hope for the subjugation of Germany by economic
means may well consider the conclusion arrived at by David Lloyd
George. Britain's most prominent statesman, who believes that only
a crushing military victory over the Teutons will bring the war to
a satisfactory conclusion. In an interview the other day Lloyd
George said:
"No nation has reached the heights of the moral grandeur of
France during the war. I set her up as England's constant model.
Her soldiers and generals show qualities of endurance, courage and
military skill worthy of the highest deeds of Napoleon's army.
"We are now too close properly to judge the immortal pages
written by France in the book of history, but historians of the
future will write of the splendid deeds of her sons in letters of
"At the name of Verdun, I bow before such proofs of superhuman courage. The French army met a shock, backed by the
most barbarous methods, such as no army ever had to meet. It
will be one of the most decisive battles of the war, because it
represents the enemy's supreme military effort.
"Its lesson for the Allies is that heavy artillery and the most
violent explosives will play the preponderating role in the battles
to come. We will profit thereby, for it comes at a moment when
the fabrication of munitions increases prodigiously and the Allied
strength daily augments.
"I have never despaired of victory. The task will be hard, but
the end is sure. It is Germany's military force that we must beat.
It is not enough to force her to submission by economic pressure.
A peace imposed on Germany.exhausted in food and materials only,
would not be durable. It would be a moral defeat for the Allies
The Germans could say they had beaten us in battle and made
peace only because we had starved their women and children. That
peace we do not want. Only a crushing military victory will bring
the peace for which the Allies are fighting and of which Germany
will understand the meaning. That victory we shall have; it will
be complete and final."

them, although further subscriptions will be welcomed by R. E.
Allen, the secretary.

The Provincial Forest Board, by and
with the authority conveyed by Section
109 of the Forest Act, does hereby
order and proclaim that the following
described lands shall be exempt from
the provisions of Section 108 of the said
-Act, and settlers may accordingly set
out fires upon the said lands without
first obtaining a permit therefor from
a fire warden:
Commencing at the east end of Francois Lake, Coast, Range 4, thence
southeasterly to the headwaters of the
Nithi River; thence southwesterly to
the forks of the Nechaco River, being
the junction of the streams draining
Cheslatta and Ootsa Lakes; thence
following the outlet of Ootsa Lake to
the 125th meridian; thence south along
the 125 meridian to the 53rd parallel of
latitude; thence west to the 127th meridian; thence north to the divide between
Eutsul and Ootsa Lakes on the one
side, and streams flowing into Dean
Channal and Gardner Canal on "the
other side, being the summit of the
Cascade Range; thence following this
divide northwest, north and northeast to the 54th parallel; thence
easterly so as to include all the watershed of Francois Lake to the 125th
meridian; thence south to the north
shore of Francois Lake; thence following the north shore to point of commencement.
This area may be more generally described as including all lands whose
drainage flows into Eutsuk, Ootsa,
Cheslatta and Francois Lakes.
The above order does not relieve any
person who may set out fires on his
property during the months of May
June,July, August and September from
any of the other provisions of the
Forest Act, and is liable under Section
127 of the Forest Act for all expenses
incurred by the Department or by another, in controlling,and extinguishing
said fire should it spread beyond the
boundaries of said property or should
it threaten to do so.
The attention of settlers in the Districts covered by this order is directed
to the fact that weather conditions
extremely favorable to the spread of
fire may possibly occur in July and
August, and if fires escape control during such periods the whole Oi" the
region may be devastated. Sparks and
burning embers will easily carry hundreds of yards during such fires and no
buildings within a quarter of a mile of
bush land can be considered safe from
fire. Every settler should, therefore,
see that his nighbor.as well as himself,
takes the precautions neceisary to prevent the spread of fire.

Provincial Forest Board.

London: Statements of officers
and men relieved of duty in the j
front line show that the battle in
which the Canadians were en-j
gaged on June 2-3 was the bloodiest- on both sides -fought on the
British front since the battle of;
Loos. The Germans attacked in
stronger force than supposed,
using Verdun tactics on the
Ypres salient.
There was, first, five hours of
artillery fire from guns of every
caliber, cross fire, as well as
frontal, being directed against
the salient angle held by the
Canadians. There was no shelter,
as the watery subsoil makes dugouts impossible and the fire utterly leveled the tranches at many
points. The British gunners answered the enemy with a curtain
of fire.
The German infantry which
survived the British fire rushed
into the breaches after the bombardment ceased. They carried
full packs,blankets,flasks of rum
and coffee, flashlights, and full
rations, in preparation for a big
advance, for which their big guns
had presumably blazed the way.
The Canadians,however,unflinchingly stuck to the support trenches. Underashowerofshells from
8:30 in the morning to 11:30 at
night, they checked the German
advance. At one point the few
surviving Canadians rushed out
to tace an overwhelming German
charge and die. At another
point,in a square pit in the earth,
Col. Shaw and seventy Canadians,
completely surrounded, fought
hand-to-hand until two only were
left. The Germans finally broke
under the rifles of a battalion
hidden in a maple copse, who
held their fire until the charge
developed a good target.
Petrograd: The Russian offensive in Volhynia and Galicia is
daily assuming new phases and
marking new ground won by
Gen. Brusiloff's troops. The Russians are pushing westward from
Lutsk, after crossing the Styr,
the Austrians fighting rearguard

fighting is reported northeast of
Tarnopol, where the enemy defence is stiffening.
The recapture by the Russians
of Dubno. the second fortress of
theVolhynian triangle, is reported.
The number of Austrian prisoners
taken in the offensive is 118,000,
as well as enormous numbers of
machine guns, cannon, ammunition and stores. The Austrians
admit the withdrawal of their
forces northwest of Bukowina,

The spectacular advance of the
Czar's troops in Galicia and Volhynia apparently has not been

Vienna concedes the withdrawal

of the Russians has brought them

Paris: The battle for Verdun
has broken out with unusual violence on the east bank of Meuse,
after the lull which followed the
capture of Fort Vaux. The Germans put the respite to good use.
They brought up fresh effectives,
reformed their lines,and advanced their artillery to positions from
which they have begun a methodical pounding of the main French
defences, particularly the powerful batteries ot Tavennes and
Fort Souville. At the same time
the French advanced their line,
which has been subjected to a
series of fierce onslaughts on
Thiaumont farm, the position on
which the line pivots.
The Germans renewed the attack last night over the whole
section of the Verdun front west
of Thiaumont farm. They succeeded in entering some advance
trenches at one point, but were
repulsed elsewhere.
