Petrograd, Jan. 18.—On the left
bank of the River Vistula we delivered a counter-attack and have re-
occupied .certain trenches near the
village of Gouniliie which the enemy
captured the night previous. The
German detachments that they were
sending to the trenches were annihilated.
Subsequent efforts were made by
the enemy in this locality. The attack was without success, however.
The same night the Germans tried
twice to assume the offensive. One
attempt was on the Coulkivlssouffka
front, hut they were discovered in
time by our searchlights anil dispersed.  In the   region   of   Piotrkow

The subject of the city weigh
scales was freely discussed last evening at the Council meeting. Applications were opened for the position.
These were from J. H. Krusor, Wrii
G. Smith, J. P. Ilockinson, John
Knowles, Prank Harrison, Weston
Coyney, and Paul Quiniskie. In addition to this, R. Bailey and Norman
Morrison applied on conditions different from those offered. The conditions were that the weighmaster
should have free rent for the quarters there, free water, free light, and
a free licence for business there.
When it was proposed to   take   a
vote   on the   applications   enquiries
were made as to  what   the   recom
pense would he under   the arrangements.
It was pointed out that Ihe large
end of the business came from the
weighing of city coal. This was now
done away with so that the city clerk
thought that the remuneration of the
weigh master would not he greater
than $10 a month-.
proceedings at the City Hall last
night said that no city council had
assumed oflice in the city under less
auspicious circumstances. They all
realized In accepting nomination that
it was to be a year of hard work. It
would behove each one to bring out
'the best that was In him. Under
such conditions he had hope that a
satisfactory showing might be made
The finance committee would have
exceptionally hard work. There was
hope that the finance committee
might make such arrangements that
the works committee could make
at least a start   on   the   permanent
started if possible in order to give
employment to citizens during a
period of stringency.
The light committee should
grapple with that department and
put it on a business basis so that a
reduction in the rates might be
made. The health and market committee he hoped might be able to
add to the benefits of the market.
He hoped the Council would he
nble to aid In the fishing industry.
While he felt everyone would be behind the petition now circulating
there might be something clone by

There was a large attendance at

(jlsafety first engineer of the G.T.P.
System, addressed employees of tlie
railway ancl their wives.
W. C. C. Mehan, general superin
tendent, occupied the chair, and In
his introduction of the speaker re
ferred to the eflicient work that had
been done during the construction
days of the road. Some of tlie most
staying work had been accomplished
in the building of the road, hut the
men who had served on it had clone
their work well and willingly. The
construction work was now well-
nigh completed ancl the stage of operation and maintenance was beginning. Safety first became an important feature when passenger traffic
ancl general  business  was concerned.
Mr. Bradshaw, by means of lantern
views thrown on the canvas, showed
the Importance of this principle.

It  was suggested    that   something
might be done to make it compulsory j embodied   the    principles   aimed   at
to have coal weighed.
The mayor said that he felt that
it would well repay any citizen to
insist upon having his coal weighed
on the scales. They were in danger
of getting short weight if this were
not done. He believed the Council
might well grapple with this and
try to have all coal weighed.
Aid. Montgomery said he would
not vote on a proposition to give a
man a position that would not give
him a meal ticket.
The mayor said this proposition
had been gone Into before the applications were called  for.

WHAT SEATTLE GETS
OUT OF HALIBUT TRADE
The Benefits Of The Fish Trade To
A Port Have Been Figured Out
For Enlightenment Of Local Residents- - Some Startling Figures
In connection with the move that
is now being made to secure to
Prince Rupert the big end of the fish
trade of the Nortli Pacific, which Is
felt rightly belongs here, W. B. Clayton and others have gathered some
useful information. They have ascertained what the halibut business
alone means to Seattle, where a
large share of tlie trade now goes.
According lo this Information
about, three and a half million
pounds of halibut is landed at Seattle from the North Pacilic each
month. When the value of this fish
is looked Into and the effect which
it has upon the trade of that city the
situation Is made a very striking
one. The average value of the halibut
last year in Seattle was (i cents a

Statement of his lie made as public lis possible:
"There appears to he a persistent rumor which has gained considerable currency in the province, that my hue secretary was a-
sociated with the stealing and manipulation of plans ot home defence and thai ihe discovery uf   his   complicity   therein   was   the
cause of his death. Since returning from my recent visit easl I
learned that some such rumor had been published In a Seattle
paper, hut I paid no attention to ii other than as a phase of news
paper sensationalism, Ii never occurred to me that In Hrltish Colum-
bia, where Mr. Macrae was we 1 known, any heed would he paid In
il. It Is a painful subject for lie lo discuss, hut in justice lo the
memory of one who never betrayed a trust or was disloyal to his
country In thought, word at deed, I must slate most emphatically
that the rumor is wltho.il the slightest possible foundation, The
circulation of such stor'.es, wilfully or otherwise, is a cruel reflection upon my late secretary and painful lu the extreme to relatives
and friends. Mr, Macrae had boon suffering for many months with
a nervous ailment .".ml his untimely death cannot In the slightest
degree he regard'',1 as a reflection In any way upon his honor as
man or a citizen."

THE FISHING  INDUSTRY.
The citizens are fast coming to
realize that the industry of all other
industries  as  far  as  Prince   Rupert sentlal  auxiliary  to   the   trade.
is concerned is lo be fishing. This
is at least the situation for some
little time. As years go by there will
be added to that source of wealth
to the community others, some of
them more or less dependent upon
the fishing industry. This place
should spare no pains lo make itself
known far and wide as the centre of
the fishing industry on the Pacific.
To do that it must not cenfine its
efforts to one variety of fish alone.
It appears to us that it will be essential for Prince Rupert to get in shape
to supply every kind of fish that is
obtainable on the Pacific.
It is true that at the present time
halibut is the mainstay of the trade.
Probably this will remain so for a
long time to come, but there are
many other varieties of fish in these
waters that should with a little fostering of the trade find a ready market east  of here.
We do not mean to minimize the
importance   of  the  concessions   that
are being sought through the efforts
of  II.  S.  Clements,  M.P,  The  granting of the right to United States fishing bottoms to come into Prince Ru
pert  and   dispose   of   their   take   of
fish, receiving in return bait and supplies here, is something of the very
greatest     importance.        Over     and
above this, however, is the fostering
of a strong home   fleet—a   fleet   of
Canadian   bottoms,  manned  by   Britishers who will make their homes in
Prince Rupert,  maintaining  families
in the city and contributing an   Integral part of our nationality.    Such
a branch of tlie industry should not
be lost sight of in the efforts to build
up a   fishing  centre  here.
This port will have all the facilities for constructing vessels with the
completion ol' Hie G.T.P. drydock and
shipbuilding sheds. In a few
months' time when the Imperial Oil
I
facilities there are conditions existing that prevent the port coming
'into its own in the industry it will
i be up to the citizens to aid in every
way possible to overcome the handicap.
As we said before, we do not wish
to minimize the importance of securing the fish here from the United
States bottoms.    That  is a  very   es-
At
the same time we feel that the securing of a reputation as shippers
of the best qualities of fish is of the
first   importance  and   with   that   the
may be leased for a term of twenty-one years at an annual rental of
$1 per acre. Not more than 2,560
acres will be leased to one applicant.
Applications for a lease must be
made by the applicant in person to
the Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in which the rights applied for
are situated.
In surveyed territory the land
must be described by sections, or
legal subdivisions of sections, ancl
tn unsurveyed territory the tract applied for shall be staked out by the
applicant himself.
Each application must be accompanied by a fee of $5, which will be
refunded if the rights applied for
are not available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the
merchantable output of the mine at
the rate of five cents per ton.

A minute or two later, after an order has come through from tile-control position, tlie lieutenant in
charge of the foremost turret suddenly raps out the order: "Bring
both guns to the ready!" The men
standing by the breeches flick over
their small levers. "Right gun
ready!" "Left gun ready!" they report in rapid succession. The range,
meanwhile, is decreasing rapidly,
and about ten seconds later there
comes the strident rattling of an
electric bell. It is the signal to open
lire. The gun-layer holds his breath,
sees the cross wires of his telescope
cutting the latticework of the target,
and then presses an innocent-looking brass thunibpiece. As he does so
there is a roar and, with a blaze of
orange flame and a pall of In-own
smoke, a projectile weighing more
than half a ton is sailing through
the air on its way toward the target. Outside the turret the concussion is terrible, but inside it is
barely felt, and the only means the
gun's crew have of knowing their
weapon has gone off is by the rocking of the turret and the recoil of
the gun. Back she slides, with the
water whistling and gurgling
through the hydraulic valves far
below. She stops, ancl then, as the
running-out springs exert their
strength, is driven back to the firing  position.

The men meanwhile are working
liko demons. Someone, by moving a
small lever which actuates a hydraulic engine, has opened tlie
breech. A cloud of acrid cordite
smoke tills the turret, but another
man, turning' a tap, sends a jet of
water spouting into the chamber to
extinguish all siill burning fragments, Everything seems chaos, hut
everyone   knows   what   to    do   -they
have done h time aftsi tlfiie, and In
less than 80 seconds We hear a sharp
order, "Righi gun—■load!"   A   man

there is another discharge.

range shooting the shell does not
travel In a straight line, but in a
curve. It. drops upon the target. Not
only is it absolutely essential to get
the proper range, but it Is of vital
importance to get it before the ene-
ny, as experience shows that the
jun that first gets the range and
irst sends a shell against the enemy
has secured a great advantage. The
range is found by triangulation, and
is a mathematical problem worked
out rapidly by the experts. The
length of the telemeter, which is
precisely determined, forms the base
of the triangle, of which the point
whose distance is to be measured is
the apex. An optical arrangement
serves to measure the angle at this
apex, and a simple formula then
gives   the   distance   sought.
Batteries Of .Range-Finders.
This optical arrangement is rather
a complicated affair, and important
parts of it are two mirrors, but its
operations are rather too technical to
be described. However, it may be
said that the length of the base employed is an Important element and
that the longer It is the less is the
chance of error. It is said that at
the present time experts are at work
Upon a new telemeter of which the"
base used shall be the total length
of the ship, instead of the six-foot
base most commonly employed. In
the British navy "batteries" of several telemeters are used so connected that the operation of one moves
the others and a single reading gives
the mean distance.

Manchester    Guardian     Hints    That

WHAT SEATTLE GETS.
The Manchester Guardian has a
review of W. T. U. Preston's boolc
on Lord Strathcona. Although this
review is decidedly delayed, the
Guardian is so careful in its criti-
i ism of such literary efforts thai
some notice is merited. Mr. Preston's
book, it says, follows Lord Strath-
cona's career rather too thoroughly
into the welter of financial interests
which forms such a large part of
Canadian politics, lor it to emerge
in quite the spotless condition which
we expeel  from our public men.
Speaking of "the devious turbulent flood of Canadian politics," the
Guardian naively suggests that one

fishing craft. This means that $210,-
000 a month went into the hands of
these operators.
Those -who have a knowledge of
these things estimate that three-fifths
of this money goes out in wages ancl
for gear and supplies, which means
that about $126,000 a month finds
its way directly into the city and
circulates among the business men.
In the trade it is conservatively estimated that 4.JO0 men are engaged in
tbe boats in fishing and these make
their homes In the city. Taking the
large and the small boats, it is said
that from 2U0 to Hun boats are in
use, while about 000 Ions of Ice a

may be really sidelights and deduced
rather too exclusively from his own
side but they reveal nothing which
is particularly surprising even to a
moderate acquaintance with the
queer side of public life in Canada."
Heavy  Light   Bill,
The Hotel Prince Rupert wrote
the Council last night, calling attention to the fact that their hill for
electric lighting for December was
$174. This, It was explained, was a

and that care was taken to economize. The letter was referred to the
light committee for report.

The mayor said that he had had a
long talk with William Manson before he left for Victoria when he had
sought to find out whether Hie city
might not get the use- of the three
lots beyond the Government Wharf.
If that were clone the city might dc
something towards providing a free
fishing wharf. If another site were
deemed better the Council might assist in that work.
Before the Council closed, on the
suggestion of Aid. Kerr the new
members were requested to speak.
Aid. Beveridge said he expected to
sil and listen for a while, lie would
do his best for the city.
Aid. Nlcol laid no claims to oratory. He was anxious to serve the
city to the fullest.
Aid. .Montgomery expressed the
hope that the lighting would be reduced in cost during the year. There
were complaints. He would like to
see any industry coming in getting
cheaper rates.
Aid. Kerr thought there would he
no complaint before the year was far
advanced.
Aid. Morrissey hoped to see as
many public works as possible got
under way. Owing to the unsettled
conditions of the present he thought
that a start might be made In the
way of fortifications, in cutting roads,
clearing   the  sites,  etc.
