At The Front-Major Peck Left July 5 To Rejoin His Regiment
The Journal has received a letter from Major Peck, who commanded the first contingent that went from here to serve at the front. It was
writteW from Shorncliffe on July 5. On that day he was leaving again
for the fighting line in France or Flanders, and is therefore again in action
in all probability. The letter has been one of exceeding great interest
to die editor of the Journal, owing to the sidlights which Prince Rupert's
well known resident is able to throw on the incidents connected with the
win- anil the allusions to the familiar names in this city. No doubt the
readers of this paper will also lie interested in il. The letter Is therefore
given in  full.    It is as follows:
War Has Been Transforming Citizens
Into Heroes Of The Highest Rank And Order
My dear Nelson:— Unknown  Heroes.
I have often resolved tn write you
a systematic account of our experiences at the front, so that the people
of ihe North might know how the
men who represented them have conducted themselves as soldiers and
upon lhe Held of battle.
In all ages of the world men have
gone forth to war, amidst the plaudits and in the esteem of their i-ountry-
II will therefore be a great source
of pride to you all to realize that
the men who came from amongsl
you, and who. you know us Tom, Dick,
Harry, .foe, Charlie and Bill, etc.,
have proved themselves worthy of the
traditions of the best warriors of any
age, and that they have fought with
a steadiness and valor in the famous
Canadian  battalions,  who,  In   a  few
It seems natural in history to  short months   here,  come  to  be  re-
men.
read and get enthused over, the
Greeks going to fight the Persians;
the Romans going to fight the wild
tribes of the North; and the British
going to Spain, and the Low
Countries to fight Napoleon; but
somehow in this commercial age we
seem to have lost some of our heroic
enthusiasm. But it seems different
to contemplate as heroes, the men
one had rubbed up against in the
streets, borrowed tobacco from; or
argued the respective political merits
of Sam Newton and Duff Pattullo.
While we knew that our men had
all kinds of grit and go, still we had
not thought, of them In that heroic
sense, with a halo around their heads,

of old. .
garded as the best troops  in  Flanders.
Rndured All.
In the long fatiguing marches and
wretched bivouacs, they h"V_ maintained the same high spirit and good
humor, and in the trenches they stand
the heaviest shelling with the greatest fortitude, and then go into action
with a gallantry and determination
that is beyond all praise.
Of all the men in my command not
one showed the while feather nor
quailed when coming face to face
with what looked like and often was
certain death.
It is a very congenial subject to
me, for generous men become daily
more and more attached to them, and
proud of their exploits and devotion.
Canadians At Salisbury Plains Were
Exemplary In Conduct For Most Part
You will remember before leaving
Victoria the companies were doubled
up and 1 bad incorporated in my
company an equal number of men
from the Koolenay's and Nanaimo.
These men were of the same fine
stamp and calibre as our northern
men, and from the first, their was
a natural kinship between them.
Well, our stay in England need
not be described, as you have heard
plenty of that. I will only mention
that the conduct of our men was
exemplary.
The First  Contingent.
Unfoi*,anately a great deal has been
said, that should not. have been said,
about the conduct of the first con-
lingcnt al Salisbury Plain. A few
Indlscrel Incidents were grossly exaggerated, und In consequence Hie
first contingenl gol a rather had
inline. As a matter of fart, Ihey
were as good or bctler than any other
military.camp of the same size, ami
il is to be deplored that the English
people did not take a more generous
view of the lil tie escapads of high
spirited men. To anyone now who
speaks about "living down the reputation of the first contingent in England," I reply thai what we have first
to do is to "live up" to the reputation of the first contingent, at Langemarck and Feshubert and other battlefields.
The Major's Quick Response To Call
From The Front For Reinforcements
Well, after being in England six or
seven weeks there came the heavy
losses of Langemarck, and reinforcements had to be rushed to the front,
and the breaking up of the 30th Battalion.    II was very tragic the break
ing up of this battalion, whicli under
Col. Hall had gained a just reputation of being one of the best, if not
the best battalion that had ever left
Canada.
My company  was  the  first  to go.
The order for a company came about I more outfit and ammunition, and we

ed such officers as were about, saying sleep, and arrived at   about
that a full company had been asked jeight in the morning, already within
for to leave at 7 that night.
Luckily there were no other company officers about, and I urgently
pointed out that I was "Johnnie on
lhe Spot."

Russians It Is Believed Nay Save Day
London, July 24.—The battlefields around Warsaw are experiencing the most important struggle of the present \»>ar, since the battle of the Marne was fought in France on the western  front.
Vienna and Berlin claim that the Lubin-Ciiolm Railway has passed
into their hands.
The impression is gaining ground that the German invaders are
reaching the limit of endurance, and that the Russians will not
only save Warsaw, but defeat their opponents.

I neventful  Day.
The next day was passed rather
quietly except for the heavy lire, and
in getting used to the situation. That
evening we filed out to a position
about I 1-2 miles easl of the canal
and dug a communication trench,
No.'s 1 and 2 Companys being on the
right, of the position.
Saw French  Attack.
The next day we were heavily
shelled all day. Othencompanies had
losess, hut we very few. 1 saw a
French attack, through my glasess,
on the German trenches. The French
arc grand and so duvoted and patriotic.
In this charge Ihey fell like flies,
hut 1 do not know if they were successful or not. We saw many wounded passing hack, some all shot to
pieces but undismayed.

That  night  we had  lo  move back!

and could not do no good by staying
with their regiment.
Boiling   Into  Rage.
As lo the moral effect our troops
were not dismayed a hit, hut were
anxious to get at the Germans. The
Rupert boys were boiling with rage.

greatest sights I ever saw in my life.

three or four miles to a bivouac,
where we stayed all day. Even here
the Germans sent us a complimentary
shell or two, first to show they were
on the job, and we had to separate
the companies.
Marched To Billets.
That  night   we   marched  some   17
or 20 miles to billets. Our guide lost \
us on  the way and  many men  were]

a ridge, along the whole horozin, its

ridge. Tlie gas had been discharged;
not minutes but seconds, when the
whole Fien.-h artillery opened up on
that ridge. They appearently had
lhe range beforehand and were prepared for the event. In a few seconds, as 1 say, the whole of that
horizon was nolhing hut a cloud of
bursting shell and flying sand, nor
did it cease a moment for an hour
und  a half.
Nothing could advance through it,
and the grandeur and roar or the
cannonade seemed like the judgment
mud or not, and fall asleep.
Stood The Test.
When we got to our billets (a'fter
our guide leading us stnnc -miles
astray), 1 won't tell you how many
men 1 had left—but they were all

Troops On Move.
We saw many troops at this point
coming and going, and much artillery
is massed there. We saw the big
Howitzer batteries working. 1 recou-
noitered to the front with other officers during tlie afternoon.
That evening we marched back
about four miles to billets, but il
took us till midnight, as we were continually checked by the movemeni
of troops and transport. The billets
were terribly crowded, but we managed to cram in somehow. Humourous incidents happen, which you
laugh nhout afterwards, but don't like
at the time.

The Major (Gihsonl had a rather

his humorous description of it afterwards.

The Major's Highland blood is up
;these days, and he enters Into everything with the keenesl spirit. The
noisier things are the more be seems
to enjoy it. Shell lire and the continual atmosphere of death and destruction have no terrors for him.

1 then went to the colonel and persuaded him to allow me to withdraw
my company from the communication .trench for the time being, as
they could not get forward.
Capt. Moore withdrew the company and occupied an old line of
breastworks, while I went forward
to reconnoitre the roads for a possible advance. It was drizzly and

Kitchener's  Promise.
Lord Kitchener told
McBride, (whom I saw In London—

going lo give the Canadians every
chance to prove Iheir mettle. He has
nobly kepi his word, and has not been
disappointed!

We then had to cross about half a
mile of boggy country, full Of ditches
and old trenches aud slinking corpses.
A Hard Task.
1 can't imagine how we ever did

and shov.-ls besides their heavy packs

the mosl wonderful troops in the
world ;.i iliis sori of thing. The western spirit of helpfulness comes to the

Reitchel, who thus replied their
scratches meant being badly shot up.
Sometimes one would see a kilted
form being lifted out of the trench
and laid to one side—making his exit
from  the war stage  forever.
Walter Smith's Death,
Poor young Waller Smith was
carried out that day. He was a
stretcher bearer and always got himself attached to my company. He
had gone to attend a wounded man
and was shot in the head. Another
young fellow, liis In-other stretcher
bearer, went to attend him but was
also badly wounded. As the friend
passed my headquarters, he said, "1
don't care for myself, sir, but, I'm
sorry for poor Smithy, I think he's
killed." However, Smith afterwards
showed some signs of life and was
carried out, but afterwards died of
his  wounds.
Il<-   was   a   cool-headed   and   de-

I   was   continually   visited
by  tiiis  one  and  thai   all  the  time.

proved.
A ruin is a kind of ostrich safety.
If a shell does hit it, "good night!"
The day before I went ovor to an
old thatched straw hen-house, and
tried to sleep as it was raining.
Shortly I had to go over to the
trenches to see my company Sergi.-
Major Williams. I found his dug-out
was filling with water, so I invited
him over to my hen-house. We had
jusl made ourselves comfortable on
some straw when a shell burst in line
with us, and we executed a flank
movement to tlie ruin where we stood
about, all  day.
I became greatly attached to this

"Well. I got a comfortable shelter

In tlie early afternoon 1 had orders
lo send patrols to reconnoitre two
positions ou either (lank. I sent Corp.
Ifolniberg and four men to the right.
They dislodged some German spies,
but were nearly captured, and had to
retire hastily. However, they accomplished their object, as they found
the enemy occupied that position in
large numbers, which was verified
next evening when one of our regiments were beaten back with heavy-
loss. The position was captured by-
one of the Canadian battalions three
or four days later.
I sent Corp. Hunt and ten other
Kootenay men to rcconnoithe a house
on the left of the posltiion and in
advance of it. The enemy';- patrols,
however, were there in force, an_
o-il.v five men returned.
Attack Planned.
An attack was planned for thai

However, I as ordered to pul some
