ATTACKS BY AUSTRO GERMANS REPULSED
Russian Forces
Have Turned Back
Attacks By Enemy
Petrograd, Dec. 24.—Heavy fighting is reported thirty miles from
Cracow, where the Austro-German
forces have been attempting to force
their way Into Poland. Heavy Russian artillery was massed to render
invulnerable the strategic points
connected with the line of   advance.
Anxious to Win.
Copenhagen, Dec. 24.—The vital
necessity of a German victory in
Poland is revealed In dispatches from
Stettin. A month ago the plan of
abandoning East Prussia was seriously considered by the German
general staff, it is said, with the purpose of releasing the troops from the
western front to force a new way
through the Allies' line. It was decided to be too great a hazard and
the plan was dropped.
Germany would be glad to release
all war prisoners on the ground that
the Germans have not food for their
armies, if it were not for honor's
sake, according to statements of officers ol the commissariat department who are in Scandinavia buying
foodstuffs.
The prohibitions which have been
placed in Denmark and Sweden on
various exportations are necessarily
limiting their purchases to a few articles and nothing in proportion lo
the needs of the army. They want
millions of pairs of shoes, and eveu
accept patent leathers if they can
get nothing else.
NO    PAPER.

OVERSEAS COMPANY
ARE APPRECIATIVE

THANKS TO CITIZENS.
The Watches Given by the City Were
Very Much Appreciated by
the Boys.
APARTMENT  FIRE.
New     York,    Dec.     24.—Five
* members of a family were trap-

* here and lost their lives. Scores
* were almost suffocated   by   the

The Overseas Contingent from
here now in camp at the Willows,
Victoria, were very appreciative of
the kindnesses shown them by local

been received by the mayor from Col.
Peck, who commands the company:
Willows Camp, Dec. 17, 1914.
Mayor S.  M. Newton,
Prince Rupert.
Dear Sir,—I have the honor to
state that the watches so kindly presented to my company by the people
of Prince Rupert arrived a few days
ago and were duly distributed. There
were enough to go around to everybody not only in my company, which
is B Cmpany, but to those who are
in the base company. '.You will understand that only 110 of all ranks
are allowed in one company, so a few
of our men had to go into what is
called the base company, from which
Ihey will be drafted into other companies in due course.)
it is superfluous for me to state
that this gilt together with the other
gilts of the people of Prime Rupert,
• Daughters of the Empire, the
Auxiliary of Bella Coola, etc., have
been most warmly appreciated by
everyone in the company.
We are greatly envied hy other
companies, who have nol been so
generously supported as we have hy
the open-hearted northern people.
You will appreciate that we are
very, very busy preparing ourselves
for foreign service and the serious
business that  is  ahead  of  us.
Our company  is  readily   acknowledged  to lie the best  company in the

Christmas Greetings!
in a season of the year which is recognized as symbolical of peace
and good will the nations or the earth find themselves torn asunder by a
war of world-wide proportions, it seems difficult to reconcile the Christmas spirit with the conditions that prevail. In the case of our own people,
which in reality is nothing less than a nation in arms at the present
time, the Christmas season is made one of more or less sadness this year.
We who are not under arms have forced upon us a depressing feeling
in view of the fact that many friends are serving with the colors and are
necessarily enduring all the privations that must go with such a service.
On every side we are reminded of war rather than of peace. It would at
lirst blush appear that the teaching of the Prince of Peace had been in
vain after nineteen hundred years of the promulgation of tbe doctrines
of the Christian religion. But taking another aspect of the situation may
we not as a nation and as a city regard the festive season with joy. We
are as a nation engaged In a war net of our seeking but in defence of the
highest principles of peace on earth and against, despotism of the ugliest
type. As a city we are enjoying a prosperity that places us in a position
by ourselves among tho coast centres. Therefore, while one cannot help
feeling somewhat depressed when we think of the desolation which must
prevail as a result of the cruel war,-we can hope that out of the mighty
political cataclysm which Is prevailing more lasting peace may result. To
our soldiers who are serving either at the front or who are in training
for the battle may today be one in which they may be able to forget for
the moment the harsher side of a soldier's life and enjoy like those who
stay at home memories of pleasanter days when duty called them to less
stern tasks.

A  RECORD MARCH.
Win. M'Pherson, Fraserburgh, who
fought with the Naval Brigade at
Antwerp, writes from Holland to a
British paper that a German shell
landed in the trench right where
his colonel was standing, and that
was the last seen of him and of
three men who were beside him. In
the retreat the brigade marched 54
miles in 22 hours without food, and
with only an hour and a half for rest.
Mac justly claims this as a record
march for untrained men.
 —o	
BRITISH GUN  WORK
HAS BEEN OK HIGH ORDER
Tiie Germans Have Reen in   Deadly
Terror of the Shooting.
Mr. T. E. Ellis, the Glasgow Herald and the Daily Chronicle special
correspondent, writing from Northern France, says:
A fact that has been lost sight of
in this war is the striking success
which has attended  our rifle fire.
Our rifle is sighted over an infinitely greater distance than either the
German or the French. Consequently
it frequently happens that our men
decimate a German advance for
nearly ten minutes before Ihe extreme sight of the German rifle can
be brought into operation. But, in
addition to our rifle fire, the Germans
have lately stumbled across a new
weapon which has terrorised their
rank and fi le and nonplussed the
generals.
This gun—I should say guns—
have razed whole forests to the
ground, and the Germans have therefore shown a disposition not to entrench themselves too systematically
in the thick woods around Ypres,
Lille and La Bassee. In places where
we have advanced corpses battered
and mangled by the fallen trees and
branches have been found in the
German  trenches.
So terrific have our shells been
that over a score of the 5,000 prisoners whom we have captured within
a week have been almost insane. An
officer lias Informed me that they
were paralysed with fright and had
to  surrender.
The Germans have no effective
counter-weapon to this field gun as
yet, and their artillery v. ill require
considerable Improvements befon ii
can dislodge us.
Our gi ■ rai Ij hand
led  no! a counted nor as many ol
em n;;, as our rifles ami Maxim
Twenty-live years ago, Dr. Wild,
pastor of the Bond Street Congregational Church, Toronto, who had a
theory thai, the Anglo-Saxons were
descended from the lost ten tribes
of Israel, ventured into the fields of
prophecy and freely predicted that
the English people could fold up
their papers and rest assured that
England would never leave the land
of the Pharoabs. In his view it
was Great Britain's high destiny to
restore to something of their former state the lands that were the
birthplace of civilization. After
long years of beneficent financial
control, Egypt becomes a British
protectorate. And if Egypt, what
about Palestine, an adjoining Turkish province? It seems reasonable
to conclude that the Allies will not
let the Turk continue to hold his
oppressive hand over that land.
Recently the Toronto Globe referred to the probability of a partial
Jewish restoration to ancient Canaan
under international guarantees. Assuming that Russia, France and
Great Britain would dominate the
rearrangement of the map of Europe
after the defeat of German militarism, the Toronto Daily suggests that
Russia might be willing to get rid
of her chronic Jewish trouble in
starting another small nation experiment; that France would be kindly
disposed to a people of whom she
has long been tolerant; that Great
Britain would be enthusiastically desirous of helping a race the British
people have delighted to honor, and
adds: "What will happen in this
direction depends on the Jews themselves. As a people they are wealthy
enough to set themselves up under a
new institutional organization. Their
estimated number is eleven and a
half millions. It might be both practical and politic to let them have a
large section of Syria, to the east of
Palestine, so as to give them a -hance
to develop. Their literature and traditions would form a strong bond of
union, to say nothing of their esoteric tribal organization."

FAMOUS PIPER IS
GOIXO TO THE FRONT
The Hero of Df^-gai Heights Is Back
to the Colors Again, Deserting
Hi's  Farm.
The announcement that Piper
George Findlater, V.C., of the Gordon Highlanders, has answered Lord
Kitchener's call to the colors is in itself one of the romantic sidelights
of the great war. Reading the intimation, tho story of "Deathless Dar-
gai," and the manner in which Find-
later won the coveted bronze cross
"for valor," al once leaps to mind,
It in one of the most thrilling episodes in the famous history of a gallant regiment, and in' the north the
narrative of Findlater playing tbe
pipes to encourage the Gordons In
the storming of the bullet-swept
slopes of Dargal Heights is almost a
household  possession.
A considerable time has elapsen
since Piper Findlater exchanged the
sword, so to speak, for the ploughshare, but the call to arms made its
stirring impress on bis mind at a recruiting meeting at Turriff, and Mr.
George Findlater, farmer, Cairn-
hill, Carnousie, near Turriff, again
becomes Piper Findlater, V.C., on
the active list of the Gordon Highlanders.
A Famous Message.        -
T^ere is no Scottish child—particularly in the north—who cannot
repeat the famous words of Colonel
Matthias at Dargal—words plain and
simple in themselves, hut which conveyed a message stirring to the soul
of every Gordon Highlander who
heard them—
"Men of the Gordon Highlanders,
the General says this hill must be
taken—the Gordon Highlanders will
take it."
It was a tall order, none realized
it more than tbe gallant Colonel himself—the hardest order to obey made
in the Tirah campaign of 1SH7, in
which it was given. But the answering cheer which swelled the breeze
reassured the Colonel that, If the
feat was humanly possible, the Gordon Highlanders would accomplish
it. The Pipers were ordered forward
—Piper Findlater sprang up along
with the rest, though Piper Milne,
now resident in Aberdeen, is staled
to have been the first by a fraction
of a second to respond.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
Dorsets and a regiment of Gurkhas
had made repeated valiant, though
vain, efforts to reach the crest of the!
hill, the Scotsmen were undaunted.
Across the fire-swept zone they dashed. .Men fell right and left, hut the
rest of the battalion continued their
rush. A Major nnd a subaltern fell
wounded, and Private Lawson earned
one of the two Dargal Victoria
Crosses by carrying the latter to
safety.
The Afridis on the heights poured
in a withering fire, but the Gordons
were unchecked, findlater, shot
through both ankles, could no longer
stand, but, sitting down, he performed' Hie deed which won for him Hie
great little Cross, worth intrinsically I U'd, but which, in the sighl nf
nil Britishers, Is without price,
ed of and Dargai Heights were won.   1     For evei-y $2.00  purchase   during
By tire vote of his comrades Piper December your opportunity for hand-
Find later  was awarded the V.C.  for j some brass bed   and   Wilton   carpet
his action; Private Lawson was similarly honored, while the old Colonel
himself, who, by the by, only died
since the outbreak of the present
war, was recommended for the Cross
by General Lockhart. Being the
commanding officer in Ihe charge,
however, Colonel Matthias was unfortunately, debarred from obtaining the decoration, though no one
doubted that he thoroughly merited
it.

The elimination of litigation tinder
the provisions of the Workmen's
Compensation Act is contemplated
by the proposed appointment of a
provincial board of commissioners to
make awards. Legislation to effect
this change will be introduced at the
coming session of the legislature, according to Hon. W. J. Bowser, but
the hill will be adjourned for a year
so that It may be discussed by those
affected.
"We have now three   courses   of
action In ease of injury to workmen
said   the    Attorney-General.    "First,
the common  law action   for   negli
gence of the employer; then the em
ployers' liability, which covers cases
where a fellow-servant is perhaps re
sponsible for the injury; and faillni
these  the  Workmen's   Compenastlon
Act,  which  only allows at the   outside  $1,500  in case of death  or  in
the case 9/ a  man  who is severely
injured and unable to work   again,
half the amount he has been earning
during the six months previous with
nothing for  the  first two weeks."
The case was often taken into liti
gation, however, Mr. Bowser explained, and it, was possible that
through lack of money the injured
man was unable to fight the company, who were usually backed by
the insurance companies and the
man became so depressed and discouraged that he might be lost sight
of or leave the country before Ihe
case was disposed  of.

The Rexall Stores of Canada
CONTRIBUTE TO
The Canadian Patriotic Fund
THE Rexall Stores of Canada, 100 of the leading Drug Stores
in Canada have unanimously agreed to contribute to the
Canadian Patriotic Fund, FIVE PER CENT, of their total purchases of all Rexall Toilet Goods, Rexall Remedies and other merchandise manufactured or sold by he United Drug Company, Limited,
Toronto,   from  October    15th   o December .'list,   1011.
This action of Ihe Rexall Drug Stores of Canada has been
undertaken co-operatively, because as a. co-operative organization, they realize ow much more can »e done unitedly than individually, and il has been taken for two
reasons—to fulfill a human.- duly in raising a fund for the
relief work of (he Canadian Patriotic Organization, and a
patriotic duty In an endeavor to keep a largo staff of
Canadian  employees busy.
The inn Rexall Stores of Canada make an appeal to your
sympathy and support in their doubly worthy cause for
Increasing Hie funds of Ih 'Canadian P-atriotic Organization i.ml for Ihe support 0 Canadian workmen because: —
The fund thai would ho raised on the basis of last year's
business can be tremendously increased if every man and
woman in Canada will help a little by Ihe simple process
of purchasing Rexall Goods at the Rexall Stores.
No need to give space ln this announcement to emphasize
the high quality of Rexall Toilet and Medicinal goods.
Sufficient to say that 7,00 of the leading Drug Stores in
Canada, Great Britain, and the Untied Stales place their
personal and collective reputations behind them; that the
public in these countries endorse them to the extent of
several  million dollars worth of purchases a year.
Better goods are not made, and you lake no risk in buying, for every Rexall Storf will return you your money if
any Rexall Product is not entirely satisfactory and do it,
too, without  the slightest objection.
There's a full list of Rexall products wailing for you at
the Rexall Store in your town.
Ask for it kindly pass he word along to your friends.
It lc the collecthe purchases of all that will make tins
Rexall Stoic fund for the Ganadlan Patriotic Organization work a big one
The Fund will i"- collects from each Rexall Store in Canada by the United Drug Oompany, Limited, Toronto, and
will he pain bj them uirccl u, the officers of the Canadian Patriotic nr. nl.aitlon, and the amount so collected

TO SUPPORT  REQUEST.
(Continued  fcrom  Page One.)
What was needed In the judgment
of the boards was that an endeavor
should be made to secure more direct representation of western needs.
To that end they proposed thai a
commissioner nominated by the
Boards of Trade and approved by
the Trade and Commerce Department
al Ottawa, should he sent down to
South Alnerica to study the situation
from the standpoint of the possibility of Improved trade relations with
British Columbia,
Sir Richard McBride in replying
explained what bad transpired previously  in  this connection.
The Provincial Government, he
said, could nol  ,':' any attitude
which might savor of interference
with federal authority, but he would
be glad to assist them in their project in every possible way. He suggested that a memorandum he prepared and forwarded to Sir George
E. Foster and the Provincial Government would back this up witli
representations favorable to their
case.

not wish lo command a better behaved, eiiiini.--instil and Industrious
body of men.
(in nil the battalion parades our
company parades the strongest, overlapping other companies by sometimes ten or twenty tile-. On route
marches they show splendid spirit,
singing mostly all the time. As mile
lifter mile is passed, one wonders
how they keep up such remarkably
high spirits, as they finish in the
same buoyant feeling with which
they began the inarch.
We hope to gel away in a month's
time, bul of course, no one will know

Please convey again to the citizens
