THE CIVIC ELECTIONS
WERE HELD YESTERDAY
Three Changes Made In Aldermanic
Board As Result Of The Polling-
Three School Trustees Were Elected For  A Term  Of Two  Years
Yesterday proved to be the quietest election clay ever held here.
With no mayoralty contest there
was not the incentive to hard lighting that usually goes with the election. With a vote of about 700 cast
there was some surprise felt, as it
was anticipated it would he less than
that.
From thirteen aldermanic candidates eight were elected. The result
of the poll was as follows:, the elected candidates' names being in black
type:
Thomas Maitland  480
Geo.   IV.   Kerr 40i>
Thomas   McClyniont    397
John  Nlcol    1172

V.   Basso-Bert    230
Ronald Ferguson    186
Walter  Shaw    .141
In   the  field    for   school    trustees
there were six up for election. From
these tlie choice of three was made.
The vote stood as fol'ows, the names
of the elected ones being in black
type:

The result of the poll shows that
three of last year's council went
down to defeat. These were J. Dybhavn, V. Basso-Bert, and D. H. Morrison. In their places have been
elected John Nlcol, A. W. Edge and
W. Beveridge,
On the school board J. A. Kirkpatrick and O. H. Nelson, two of

Vancouver, B.C., Jan. 14.—Premier McBride today formally denied
the current report that his late secretary, Lawrence McRae, had committed suicide because of the discovery that it was he who sold the
plans of Esquimau to the Germans.
A report was published at Seattle
that the plans of these defences
were found on^ the person of a brother of Alvo von Alvensleben, arrested a few months ago at Gibraltar as
a German spy.

Paris, Jan. 14.—\n official statement given out says: Last night our
troops were successful in iheir attack having for its object, the overwhelming of the trenches recently
constructed by the Germans northeast of Fouquescourt.
The attacks upon the e.iemy In
the region north of Soissons have
been stopped. The Hooding of the
Ri\er Aiune which destroyed se\erai
bridges rendered very precarious
the communication with our troops j
operating on the first slopes on the
right bank. We were thus prevented
from sending reinforcements. This
has been the essential cause for the
withdrawal of our troops which were

THE   LATE   LAWRENCE  McRAE.
The denial which has been made
by Premier McBride to the rumors
that his late secretary, Lawrence
McRae, had been implicated in the
providing of plans of Esquimau to
the Germans will he received with
great satisfaction to the many friends
of the late Mr. McRae. Those who
knew Mr. McRae could never believe
that he would be implicated in any
such thing. He was born a Canadian and was truly loyal to everything British. His characteristic
traits of character were not those
that would lead to such a crime. Mr.
McRae was not avaricious, and above
all things he was absolutely faithful
in the discharge of any duty he had
to perform. To the wide circle of
newspaper friends of his late secretary with whom he had worked on
this coast there will be great satisfaction felt that the Premier has
taken occasion to clear the character
of one whom none would ever have
suspected of such an offence as has
been hinted at. Mr. McRae was not
one, moreover, who was likely to be
drawn unknowingly into anything of
this kind He was cautious to a
fault. His extreme caution was
sometimes Interpreted by his friends
us 'h ing due to suspicion on his part.
Whatever faults may have been his
we feel as one who knew him intimately that he could never be suspected of being disloyal to the British
flag. He was British through and
through and could be regarded as
even  an  extremist   in  that  line.
Tlie Red Cross of the Germans
came along afterwards and bandaged
up my wound with my own field
dressing, and then put a candle by
the side of my head so that the ambulance woudn't fail to see me In
the  dark.
About ten hours from the time I
fell 1 was picked up by the ambulance and brought to Vivierre, where
I lay for four days and then I was
conveyed to a chateau in the same
village, where my leg was cut off by
two German doctors. The anaesthetic
was administered by Lieut. Raxkin,
R.A.M.C, who was a prisoner with
me. The British afterwards relieved
me.

The following extracts from a letter written by Sergt. ,). O'Wyer of
the Irish Guards, describe vividly
the gallant fight made at the front
by a hopelessly outnumbered little
band of men, and the heroic death
of both of the officers concerned in
that thrilling stand.
Two companies of the Irish Guards
were ordered to take up a position
on a rise of ground facing the village   of   .    The  companies   were
not in the position long when there
appeared on the skyline, about 1,-
200 yards away, what appeared to
be a reconnoitering patrol. As we
were outnumbered we had  to retire
to  the  road  leading towards    ,
in which direction the remainder of
the battalion had gone.
Excitement prevailed, but we got
into our new positions quickly, and
from that time to two hours afterwards we fought for all we were
worth. Men were falling all round,
wounded and killed, but still we kept
up the retirement until we came to
four cross-roads, where there were
only about IS or 2 0 left of the two
companies, which number includes
about 16 of the 2nd Grenadiers, who
came to reinforce us during the engagement. 1 and two more Irish
Guards were among the 20, and
wherever we looked there were nothing but Germans kneeling down, actually  taking pot shots at  us.
At this period of the engagement
there were two officers left with the
20, viz., Col. Morris and a lieuten
ant of the Grenadiers. Col. Morris
ordered us to line one side of the
road, which we did, and we fired
volley after volley into the Germans
who were advancing through the
wood. Then Col. Morris ordered us to
charge, but on standing up he got
siiot clean through the throat, and
fell  out  in  the  middle  of  tlie  road
Then the officer of the Grenadiers
took command, but when he got off
the road, with sword in hand, he was
immediately shot through  the head
What was left then of us (about
11 men and myself), owing to superior numbers, had to retire into the
wood on the other side of the road.
By the time we got there four more
fell. I got over the ditch, but got entangled in some telephone wire that
was torn away by shrapnel, etc., and
1 was thrown headlong into the
wood.
1 got up as soon as 1 could and
got. about five yards further in company with one Irish Guardsman,
when I got arf explosive bullet in
the knee which shattered my whole
leg.
After a while when everything
was quiet, an N.C.O. and private of
the German army came along, and
I, lying on my face and hands, they
didn't know whether I was dead or
alive, but they wanted to find out.
I got a punch with the butt of a
rifle, and, of course, turned over
with  the pain.
They were all smiles at once and
then   gave  me  wine, etc.  to   drink.

Prove How Futile Are the
Kaiser's Efforts.
An example of the supreme importance of naval supremacy in war
is furnished by the increase in
Great Britain's gold supply as evidenced by the Bank of England reserve, since the war began. On
August 7 the panic resulting from
the war had caused the gold reserve
to decrease $62,500,000 In two
weeks, but on November 2(! It had
Increased to $361,100,000, which
was an increase of $223,000,000 on
the figures of August 7, and of $174,-
000,000 on those of the same date
in 1913. It exceeded by $115,000,-
000 the highest total ever reached
in  the  history of the bank.
This great accumulation of financial power was due only partially to
recovery of gold withdrawn during
the  war panic and  to   payment   of
their  colonies—produced  a  total  of, against Germans doing business   In
$42,984,700,   bringing   the   total   for

matter personally with the king. But
the king declined to confirm a design for a flag submitted by the
prime minister, .alleging there was

bonds. The public, however, preferred to hold them, and during the
twelve months following the offer
the Canadian Pacliic was able to secure bonds only to the amount of
$314,873. The balance outstanding
was therefore $12,842,646. The
cause which resulted in the securing
of the bonds at the present time by
the company from the holders was
the war. Previous to this great
catastrophe people In England did
not want the principal. The war
caused a great demand for money,
and the Canadian Pacific consequently was able to redeem its bonds as
it wished to do prior to the time at
which they fall due. All these bonds
issued by Baring Bros, in 1.885 and
1886   are   therefore   now   redeemed.

Before leaving for the south for a
short time I purpose giving those
who wear spectacles or eyeglasses—
or those who may need them—a
specially close price on any and all
kinds of Glasses. For ten days only
from January 11 to January 21.
I leave on January 2 2, and it will be
an advantage to all those who wear
glasses or may require them, to see
me at once, at my offices, Suite 1,
Exchange Block, or at McCutcheon's
Drug Store1. This applies to all kinds
of frames and-lenses and cases all
complete, the eyes carefully tested
and frames perfectly adjusted—and
guaranteed to be in every way accurate. If interested call and see
samples and get prices and arrange
appointments to have eyes carefully
examined. During these dates it will
pay you, if you are using glasses,
to get an extra pair, as the opportunity will not occur again. I fit all
kinds of Lenses—also Toric or wide
angle Lenses—and Kryptoks—giving you both distance and near
which have the advantage of being
invisible. Call early, so that, in the
event of having to order 1 may get
them here before I leave on January 22. If you need anything don't
miss this chance for 10 days only.
