Surrendering in Great Numbers.
London, Feb. 9—Prof. Bernard
Pares, the official observer of the
British government attached to
the Russian army quarters, in a
communication issued today by
the British press bureau, lays
stress upon the political significance of the wholesale surrendering of the racial contingents
which compose the Austro- Hungarian army.
"These surrenders are an indication of feelings and aspira-
sions of the various nationalties
bundled together under the name
of Austria," Prof. Pareo declared
"From the beginning of the war
the Bosnians surrendered in large
numbers," he continued. "Then
the Poles began to come in fast,
and now come Bohemians and
Moravians, who seem to be surrendering in larger numbers than
any other nationality. The Hungarians are pure to contince to
the end, but the Roumanian and
Italian soldiers of Austria have
come over very easily."
Rotterdam, Feb 8—A Flanders
correspondent reports that on
Thursday night an English war
plane hovered over Zeebrugge.
and, defying the concentrated
fire, made a sudden dive to within 300 feet of the ground. About
forty German soldi n returnng
from the disiplinary court, where
they had been sentenced\to punishment, ran for cover in _tll directions.
The airman coolly dropped his
bombs at short range on a submarine moored alongside the
Mole. There was a terrific explosion, and the submarine was
sunk, The aviator got safely
away.
London, Feb. 9—An indication
that Italy is pursuing her policy
waiting and watchinf/ is found in
a royal decree just issued which
orders that soldiers of the second
category, classes of 1893 and 1894
shail be retained under colors until May 31 next. As service in
the Italian army covers a period
of nineteen years, these men
should have returned to their
homes. Second category recruits
are regarded as belonging to the
permanent army for the first 8
years of service. Then they pass
to the mobile militia and afterwards to the territorial militia.
This term of military service is
supposed to be finished at the
age of 39 years.
Lord Charles Beresford is going to put a question to Premier
Asquith in the House of Commons tomorrow in which he will
demand that Great Britain treat
Germans who make raids on undefended places as pirates, and
after a trial by court-martial,
hang them in public for the murder of women and children.
Lord Charles asserts that the
government should no longer
treat such raiders as honorable
foes.
London Feb. 9. The official
press bureau has made public an
official despatch received from
Cario, which states that the Turkish army is in full retreat eastward. There are no enemy forces within twenty miles of the
Suez Canal, the despatch says,
except small retiring rear guards
The Pacific Great Eastern Railway
The Connecting Link Between Northern and Southern
British Columbia. — Rails Now Only Six Miles
From Lillooet Town.
The rails of the P.G.E. are now
laid to within six miles of
town and will be here by
Monday evening Feb. 15.
In the beginning of 1912, Sir
Richard McBride and his government introduced legislation incorporating the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Company, for the
construction of a line of railway
from Vancouver to Fort George,
and by later legislation for the
extension of this line, still northerly into the Peace river country.
This railway from its strategical position is bound to become
one of the most important sections of railway in the Dominion.
It connects with the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway at Fort George,
from which place it runs almost
due south to Vancouver, a distance of four hundred and eighty
miles. The first line strikes tide
water at, the head of Howe Sound,
where the railway company are
establishing extensive yards and
terminals. This place may be
regarded as the tide water terminal of the railway compan>,
and has been incorporated as the
J city of Squamish.
The harbour is one of the most
commodious on the Pacific coast,
net even excepting Golden.Gate.
It is thirty miles in length, and
nowhere less than one mile in
width. There is practically an
entire absence of fog, the whole
year round. Indeed, all conditions contribute in the highest
degree to rendering the harbor
secure and safe beyond any other
on the Pacific coast, the entrance
having nothing in the way of tide
or fog to make navigation difficult
The grade of this railway has
been completed between Squamish and Fort George, and the line
between these points is to be in
operation some time during this
year.
The railway passes through the
lower end of Pemberton Valley,
about sixty miles northeast of
Squamish. There are about forty
thousand acres of bottom land in
the valley eminently adapted for
farming. It is practically virgin
soil, as only a small proportion of
the area has heretofore been cultivated, owing to lack of transportation facilities.
Lillooet is 130 miles from Vancouver, and is the distributing-
centre for a good mining district.
The soil is of the richest, and
the different kinds of fruit and
vegetables raised in the Columbia River Valley in Washington
are grown in this district. There
is also splendid hunting and fishing for the sportsman and the
country roads are ideal for
riding or motoring. The people of Canada will soon be
coming to Lillooet instead of California for relaxation, and it will
soon be only about 7 hours run
from Vancouver.
As a large percentage of the
public are inclined to doubt newspaper reports, especially upon local conditions, we will quote Mr.
G. M. Downton in his report to
the Minister of Lands.
Mr. Downton, P.L.S., in his
report on the Lillooet District,
says:—"Lillooet is the only town
of importance in this district, and
is reached by way of Lytton or
Ashcroft, both on the main line
of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
the former being fiorty-seven
distant and the latter sixty-three
miles. It has a daily mail service
and a telegraph office, while it
is in telephonic communication
with Lytton, Short Portage, and
Bridge river. It has three churches, two good hotels, several well-
equiped stores, and a population
of about 300, although this has
been largely augmented recently
by the floating population connected with railroad construction.
It is .beautifully situated on an
extensive bench above the Fraser
river with a south-easterly aspect,
and is well protected from .northerly winds by a high mountain
at the rear of the town. The
climate is dry and invigorating,
the heat in summer seldom ex-
cessi ve, and the winter comparatively mild. Snow seldon lies
for any length of time in the
winter, and the water supply is
good. With the completion of
the railroad, Lillooet will be a-
bout seven hours' run from Vancouver. It is immediately surrounded by a country the possibilities of which have up to the
present hardly been realized, owing mainly to lack of markets
and communication.
"The alluvial benches which
are a marked feature along the
Fraser river north of Lytton are,
In my opinion, at any rate in the
southern part of the district, eminently suitable for the raising of
fruit and it seems probable that
with the opening of the railway
the Lillooet section will come to
be looked upon as one of the most
promising fruit sections in the
Province. Irrigation, which is
necessary here owing to the dry
climate, has been tried everywhere with success."
General  News  of Lillooet
District
Venice, Feb. 9.— According to
the Secolo's Vienna correspondent, the relations between the
King of Roumania and Count
Czernin, the Austro-Hungarirn
minister at Bucharest, are badly
strained on account of the minister's alleged unsatisfactory explanation of the massing of Austrian troops in Transylvania.
The correspondent says that
reports received from the front
are to the effect that the Count
has refused to explain the presence of these forces.
"Where's the editor?" bellowed the caller at the office of the
Podunk Pablum. "He's out,"
said the office devil. "You see
we had a home talent play at the
town hall the other night and in
describing the scene between Mr.
and Mrs. Hanks, who played the
leading part, the editor wrote:
'He held her tight as she struggled to get in,' but when it got
into the paper it read: 'He held
her tights as she struggled to get
in.' Mr. Hanks called about it,
and I ain't sin neether of 'urn

copper, 14,442 ounces of gold and
63,501 ounces of silver. The
Mother Lode mine produced 178,-
000 tons of ore at a cost of 85 1-2
cents a ton loaded on the cars.
Other mines of the company produced 13,000 tons, and 104,000
tons of custom ore were treated.

"And now Turkey has gone in

muttered the man sitting next to

know what to do if any more

Laziest Man—A Hero
' 'Never again will I judge
a man by his appearance,"
said a wounded sergeant,
when asked for his most
thrilling battle experience.
"When we started for the
front we had in our company
a man whom I simply could
not stand. He was tall, well
built, rather good looking,
with light hair and mustache,
and most awfully lazy. There
was no mistake about it—he
had wealthy parents, a man
who had never travelled without a valet, and never walked
when an automobile was near
enough to be called.
"On the moment of his arrival in our midst we named
him 'his lordship,' and bets
were made that he would
succumb after the first day's
march. Not a bit of it. It
is true he looked tired at the
start, but he looked no more
so at the finish. But when
we reached the place where
we were to rest for the night
he calmly unwound his puttees, underneath which he
wore real red silk socks. We
felt a bit upset. Silk socks
for a soldier are clearly a-
gainst the army regulations.
"But this was nothing to
what followed. He got out
a nice leather box. opened
i;, extracted some sort of
instrument and proceeded to
manicure his nails. The beggar did it as coolly as if he
had been in his own Mayfair
flat.
''All the boys had gathered
round him to watch the per-
formance; but 1 put a stop to
it by promising him four days
of ihe 'ordinary,' which he
was to undergo after the taking of Berlin, for you see, we
could not very well spare the
men just then.
"We were finally placed in
the trenches. 'His lordship'
d'd everything ungrudingly,
but he could not sleep without a pillow, so he paid four
packets of cigarettes a day to
a fat fellow, and rested his

head on the latter's stomach.
But we began to respect him
from the day when he laid
low sixteen Germans with
eighteen cartridges. It was
'some shooting,' and he did
it as nonchalantly as if he
were in a rifle gallery; but he
was so lazy that he would not
brush the perspiration off his
forehead. Instead, he asked
his neighbor to do it for him.
"Well we left the trenches
—that is some of us did, and
some did not—and then one
day we were ordered to take
by assault a village occupied
by a Bavarian regiment.
"To give added courage to
the men our captain said:
'You see these houses? There
are beds in them and those
beds are for your use if we
take the village,' Take my
word for it, we did not lose
any time, and if I did not
hustle then, I never hustled
in all my life. I was among,
the first to reach the nearest
house—at least I thought I
was, but when I dashed in I
found 'his lordship' calmly
stretched out on a bed previously occupied by a German
officer whom he had thrown
out of the window.
"We thought that we could
have a good night's rest, but
about 3 a.m. we were told to
get up, as a German regiment was marching against
us. I woke my men, and all
rose, all except 'his lordship.'
"'Get up!' I shouted.
"He opened one eye, looked
at me and said, 'Not on your j
life.'
'What do you mean? I was
looking with anger. 'We
must retreat; a whole German regiment is about to at-'
t°CK   US '
" 'If 'it is the whole "German army, I will not give up
my my bed to them,' he answered with some heat—the
first time I saw him get hot
about anything at all.
" 'I order you', I started
to say, but lie shut his eye,
turned on his other side and
slept. I added eight days to
his 'solitary,' and as I could
not carry him out on my
shoulders I left bim to his
fate.
"We retired upon an adjoining hill, within about a
mile of the village, to await
reinforcements. At dawn
our captain, who was watching the enemy through field
glasses, exclaimed with surprise: 'This is curious! They
have not entered the village
yet, They content themselves with shooting at the
houses.'
"I looked in turn. It was
true, the Germans were held
back by somebody, and every
now and then one fell. And
then I saw at one of the
windows a white apparition.
It was 'his lordships rifle in
hand defending his bed.
"Our reinforcements are
rived, we took back the village, and—can you imagin-
where I found 'his lordship'?
He was fast asleep in bed.  I
shook him; he opened an eye
and muttered: 'Bring me my
coffee.' I gave him four more
days of 'solitary,' the general added an order to have him
mentioned in dispatches.
"I suppose he is still fighting and doing good work,
while I have taken the pledge
never to judge a man by his
looks.'''   Advertiser.
