We  1 were unable, however, to debouch  'from Crouy. Our troops, subject to a.violent attack to the  east'of this place, have yielded  slightly near the village of Mon-  cei;,>hich place they still occupy,  ffey are still holding St. Marguerite and Nissy-sur-Aisne.   .  f\AThere is nothing further of im-  "portance to report.  -'Am-  Russians Gain Ground  Positions Taken at Point of Bayonet  Pays Visit to London  General French Came for Conference  i'With Kitchener and Premier  "London, Jan. 14.���������For three  days the operations of the British  array in Flanders were directed  byv telegraph from_.the ...home, of  Sir John French, near Hyde Park,  London, during the general's recent visit here. While it took  Wellington three days alone to  get a message to Whitehall (and  as long to receive a reply during  the Waterloo campaign, General  French was able to communicate  'directly with Sir John Archibald  Murray at the base headquarters  at St. Omer, France.  From a man who was in close  touch with Sir John during his  recent visit to England, the following details are learned:  !Gen. French arrived at Folkestone, wearing the overcoat and  rather soiled cap of an enlisted  man. He made no attempt to  disguise himself otherwise, and  on the channel boat attracted no  notice whatever. At Folkestone  he was met by Lord Kitchener  and both proceeded by motor to  Walmer Castle, near Deal, where  Premier Asquith resides. There  a council of war was held, attended also by the leaders of the  two political parties.  .Sir John then came to London,  where he attended council the  the next two days, the King being present on one occasion. His  nights were spent in his own  home, where hourly messages  were received from his headquarters at the front, on his trip  from Folkestone to London and  on his return from Viccoria station none of the passengers gave  a second look at the old soldier  in the private's coat and cap.  Nor did they on the boat during  the trip to Calais.. .  On landing at Calais, however,  Gen. French appeared in his full  uniform of field marshal and was  enthusiastically acclaimed by the  crowd as he drove.through the  streets to the station.  Gen. French is said to have  remarked that this would be his  last visit to London until the end  of the war.  Petrograd, Jan. 14.���������An official  statement says heavy cannon and  rifle fire prevailed on the night  of January 12 all along our front.  An engagement of considerable  importance took place following  the advance   of   our   vanguard  column in the region, of Rosog,  East Prussia.     Our troops  repulsed   the    enemy's    cavalry,  which, strongly supported by infantry, occupied several villages,  one of which being strongly fortified could only be cleared by a  vigorous attack with the bayonet.  South-west of Mlawa we advan-  ed in the direction of Radznow.  On the front comprising Kozlow,  Biskupe, Zadrzew and Suca, the  Germans, after having prepared  the way by an intense artillery  fire,   made an   offensive  movement against the south section  of this front.    Our troops, however, repulsed the attack with  little 'difficulty.     In the  region  of Borjimow Gaimine, Wolla and  Szidlowska,    the    enemy   made  several unsuccessful attacks, endeavoring in one instance to take  cover under shields.    In the region to the south of Mogekly,  the enemy also delivered a series  of attacks,   all of  which  were  easily repulsed.  Earthquake Cause of FearMCalamity  Thousands of Italians Perish and Injured  Rome, Jan. 14.���������Italy has again been visited by an earthquake. The area affected is extensive and many towns and  villages are completely destroyed. According to latest advices  over twelve thousand people have lost their lives and the number of injured will probably reach twenty thousand. The  shock is described as the most severe that has been felt for  many years.   __ j tions were received towards the  Mr. John J.

Jan. 14.���������-While no official statement has been given  out by the leaders of either political party, it is learned that the  suggested arrangement whereby  vacancies in the House of Com-1  mons will be filled without contests has been consented to by  all parties concerned insofar at  least as the five constituencies  mentioned in previous despatches  have been concerned.   The death  of Hon."George Clare, Conservative member for South Waterloo,  adds another member to the list.  The agreement will doubtless be  extended so as to include that  constituency, or any other which  may become vacant in the near  future.    As matters now stand,  the Conservatives on  February  1 or thereabouts, will elect, new  representatives for Jacques-Car-  tier, Terre Bonne, London, Prince  Albert, and Waterloo constituencies, while the Liberals will return, unopposed, a successor to  the late Hon. H. R. Emmerson,  who sat for Westmoreland.    By  j virtue of this arrangement there  will be no clash of party opinion  as a prelude  to  the session of  Parliament which it is anticipated will be practically free from  contentions and partisan strife.  whelming trenches recently constructed by the Germans to the  north-east of Fonquescour, department of Somme. The attacks of the enemy north of  Soisson have been repulsed.  "The   flooding   of  the   river  Aisne,  which destroyed several  of our   bridges,   has   rendered  very precarious the communications of our troops operating on  the right bank, and the sending  of reinforcements.     This made  essential the withdrawal of these  troops which were fighting under  most   difficult   conditions.     We  were obliged to abandon several  cannon as the result of the breaking down of the bridges, but all  were first rendered unfit for use  by the  enemy.     The  Germans  took    some    prisoners,    mostly  wounded men  whom  we   were  unable  to take away with us.  We also took a number of important prisoners.    To sum up,  the enemy has met with partial  success,   which  will,   however,  have no influence on the operations as a whole, being of purely  local  character."   On  the  rest  of the front there is nothing to  report.  Berlin, Jan. 15.���������By Associated Press.��������� Within two hours  motor  ride  of   Paris,   Emperor  brought up all their eleven-inch  monitors to the Russian front  and began a general bombard-  med on Tuesday, which lasted  all night and the following day.  This is the prelude to an infantry  attack which is perhaps now being delivered.  Vancouver Elects Taylor  Vancouver, Jan. 15.���������Taylor is  elected mayor by over 800 majority. The following are the official figures: Taylor, 4848; Baxter. 4022; Martin, 3067; Douglas,  2176.  In North Vancouver, Hanes  heads the poll with a majority  of 67.  William is possibly now directing  : a violent attack on the French  lines. The Germans, under the  eyes of their ruler, won an important victory in the fighting  yesterday near Soisson, the point  at which the battle-line, stretching down from the north to the  point nearest Paris, turns towards the eastward.  In both the Paris and Berlin  official despatches the victory of  the Germans on the heights of  Vregnyt, north-east of Soisson  is recorded. The Berlin statement adds that the Germans,  charging through mud almost  knee deep, took trench after  trench, clearing the heights and  capturing 1130 prisoners.  at theMackenzie School on Tues  day, January 19, at 7:30 p.-m.

A large  number of people, from different  parts of the valley accepted the  invitation of the young men of  Hagensborg, who are to be complemented on the completeness  of the arrangements. Excellent  music added much to the success  of the evening, while the excellently served refreshments were  greatly appreciated, especially  by those who at the close of the  proceedings had to face a long  and cold drive to their homes.

The annual meeting of the subscribers was held at Hagensborg  on Tuesday 12th, the large attendance showing the lively interest taken in this project.  The report of  the last fiscal  year showed that a small indebt-iupcm locally and we commend it  edness had been changed into a | to the attention of the Conser-  . The much needed repairs to  the wharf are now completed  and it is hoped that Bella Coola  will be given a new wharf with  better docking facilities and  proper accommodation for small  boats before any further repairs  become necessary. The present  wharf has always been a bone of  contention, and while being admittedly built in a most unsuitable spot has cost thousands of  dollars in upkeep. Efforts have  been made to secure anew wharf  but so far without avail. It is  somewhat curious that while we  need a better and larger wharf  so urgently and cannot get it,  the people of Quesnel are threatened with having one thrust on  them in spite of all protest that  the thing is unnecessary and will  be detrimental to the interests  of the place.  For some reason known only  to those in charge, the work on  the wharf was left until midwinter with the disadvantage of  short days and variable weather.  Fortunately the winter so far  has been extremely mild, with an  almost entire absence of snow,  but the constant fear of interruption by bad weather necessitated  the rushing of the work. For the  first time in this valley the government public works were carried on on Sundays. Last Sunday  the town was startled by heavy  blasting at an hour usually set  apart for Divine service.

Does the News-Advertiser believe, and ask us also to believe,  that the fact of people having  less to spend evidences-an improvement in the financial position of the province.  Numerous business houses in  our cities have gone to. the wall.  Not on account of any depression  brought about by the' war, but  by reason of the financial slump  which struck the province over  two years ago.  M&alu0 pnjmlt guprrma *at Irx."  SATURDAY, JAN. 16,  1915.  Reviewing the Activities.  In the editorial columns of the  Vancouver News-Advertiser appears an interesting article under  the heading of  "Sir Richard's  'Message."     It  speaks -of   the  Premier's New Year's review of  the activities of the province,  ��������� and   says  ' fit  shows  that  the  value of British Columbia products were, little,  if any,   less  than previous years,. and more  than the.recent average."   The  News-Advertiser    admits    the  probability'that the products of  last year were less than ofpre-  vious years, ��������� and. then   asserts  that they were above the recent  average.    What method of reckoning the esteemed editor would  employ to justify such a contradictory statement would be'interesting to know.   Our contemporary informs us that the mineral productions decreased from  $30,000,000; to $26,000,000,   and  also that the lumber statistics  are not available, but that there  is a considerable decrease. Then  we are offered a sedative in the  statement that farm products increased from $24,000,000 to $27,-  000,000, 'which   would   be   encouraging-.-to some extent if it  could only be taken to mean that  the-cultivated area in the province had been increased to any  appreciable extent, and tnat production had increased by eight  per cent.   The fact is, that only  the cash value of the production  has  been increased.     In other  words, the cost of farm products  has increased.     The consumer  has had to pay more.   The News-  Advertiser says "it would appear  that the province has produced  more than the average."    What  we would like to know is, to what  extent has'the import of farm  produce into the province* decreased?     '  "Certainly the people have  spent less," says our contemporary, and finishes up with the  statement ttyat "taken as a whole  the province is improving its  financial position much faster  than when the people thought  they were growing rich."  Yes, the people have spent  lesSi for the simple reason'that  they have had less to spend.  With thousands of able men out  of employment. With our industries at a standstill. With-our  oities congested and faced with  the need of reducing the salaries  ' ' Commenting on the failure of  the Dominion Trust Company  the Toronto 'Saturday Night  makes the following statement:  "To those investors abroad who  sent money to Vancouver for investment through the Dominion  Trust Company the credit of  Canada has received one more  blow. These blows will continue  until there arises in this country  some non-political administrator  of finance, who will insist that  all company laws of Canada will  make it a crime to steal- and  which laws will be so operated  that stealing will be difficult."  Richard's recent trip to London  was made as Dominion representative   to   confer   with   certain  persons on the matter of Imperial  Defense.    Sir Richard added, incidentally, that he also conferred  with several leading financiers  regarding the future finances of  British Columbia.    Doesourcon-  temporary know the outcome of  Sir Richard's hob-nobbing, with  the 'financiers.   Did he succeed in  extracting   another   loan   from  them.    Is that how our financial  position is improving?"  Through the failure of the  Dominion Trust Company many  people in the province will have  less money to spend, and consequently will spend less. <This to  our contemporary, means that  the ."province is improving its  financial position."  Less than three years ago the  province was supposed to have a  surplus of $9,000,000. Last year  it was found necessary to raise  a short-term loan of $1,5.00,000,  because (accordingto Mr. Bowser)  the province was unable to  square its ledger. Following  closely we have legislation authorising, the raising of a loan  of $10,000,000, stated by the  Minister of Finance to be merely  the precursory to others. Yet,  the "province is improving its  financial position."  Perhaps the News-Advertiser  is in possession of information  regarding provincial finances of  which the public has as yet no  knowledge, if so, we should be  pleased to be taken into the confidence of our contemporary.  According tq press reports,' Sir  As Others See  Us.  Under'the caption of "A.Fore-  casty" the Montreal Weekly Witness editorially speaks as follows:  "The story goes in Conservative  newspapers that Sir Richard McBride,   the   dictator of   British  Columbia, is to enter the national ministry as minister of naval  defense, a new portfolio, with a  view  to the   reversion   of   the  premiership   when   Sir   Robert  Borden shall  go  to London as  High  Commissioner,  a position  he would grace.    There can be  no question but that, with the  possible exception of Sir Rod-  mondRoblin, and of the impossible Major-General Hughes, who  has just, with a war-lord looseness of tongue, made bitter enemies of the patriots at Toronto,  Sir Richard is the most forceful  leader,  and   without   exception  the most practical politician in  the Conservative army, if not in  the whole country; for what is  called practical politics does not  find itself at home in the Liberal  party.    In favor of this forecast  there is more than one omen.  It  is notorious that Sir Richard, has  exploited and forestalled all the  great resources of his province  to such an extent that it is now  for   the   time  being   a  sucked  orange,   which   affords   small  promise   for   a continuance   of  such exhaustive, methods.    As  long as every constituency could  be bribed by some great public  work and politically handled by  one or more favored corporations  all went well.    But the province  itself, as well as its politics, has  got so largely, into the hands of  speculative companies and absentee owners looking to make rich  by a development which they are  For Results Use-  P. Standard"  doing jnothing to further, that  ���������the resentment of the actual inhabitant is becoming a thing to  be counted mth. It might be a  good move, therefore, on the  part of Sir Richard McBride to  leave to others the task of pulling the province through its time  of recuperation. Indeed, one  can foresee distress in the foreground of that process, such good  land as there-is in the province  having risen, to prices which  would be counted fabulous here  in the province of Quebec.  Squandering.  It is not often that the government's intention of constructing  wharves or .other public works  meets with opposition,-but in the  case of Quesnel a strong protest  has  been   made to the department of public works at Ottawa.  It is stated that a "wharf has not  been found,necessary during the  past twenty yearsand that when  the Pacific Great Eastern is completed there will be even less use  for it.    The only company who  will operate a steamer on  the  river next summer has joined in  the protest, so  that one must  come to the conclusion that the  money   would   be   practically  wasted.   The wharf, as proposed  by the government, would prevent the landing of logs in an  eddy near", a new  $22,000  sawmill.  ��������� It will also make it impossible to haul out boats for the  winter at  this  point.    Indeed,  the charge has been made openly  that   the   construction   of   the  wharf is only a sop to keep the  voters in good humor.   The statement is made that owing to the  press of ice, no wharf could stand  the strain, and every year would  necessitate extensive repairs, if  not a new wharf.  In the meantime we are in receipt of a letter from a reader  ���������residing ,at Kleena Kleene in  which he says they have for a  long time past been endeavoring  to obtain a post office at that  place.,    He complains   of   only  CHICK STARTER  CHICK FOOD  CHICK DEVELOPER  SCRATCH FOOD  SOLD BY LEADING DEALERS  AND BY  ALBERTA   PACIFIC   GRAIN  COMPANY  VANCOUVER,  B.C.

C.  mm  BUSINESS CARDS  (From the New York Evening  Post.)    f  "We  now  let these   Belgian  documents speak for themselves"  is the concluding sentence of Dr.  Dernburg's plea in justification  of Germany's  violation of her  treaty obligations.    And they do  speak  for themselves;  but not  for Dr. Dernburg.    That gentleman, in the course of his 1500  words, more or less, of introduction, has not a word to spare for  the simple fact that the military  arrangements discussed between  a representative of  the British  army and a representative of the  Belgian army related  solely to  what would  be  done  " in case  Belgium   should   be   attacked."  Special pleading, on the part of  the official advocates of any belligerent, is to be expected; but  there are limits  beyond  which  special pleading becomes an insult to intelligence.   Those limits  are passed when the consideration of measures to be taken by  one country in case a treaty is  violated by another is deliberately declared to be proof that the  first country herself was determined  to   commit   a   violation.  And on no better basis than this  does Dr. Dernburg rest the defense of Germany's crime against  Belgium.  Geoffrey K. Burnett   D. J. McGuoan  C.E., U.C.L.8., (J.A.H.C, H.C.I..S..  ASS. M.CAN.KOC.

At a time when the German  government was trying to excuse  itself to the world for the barbarities in Belgium that they  were necessary reprisals for the  unwarranted participation by  civilians in the fighting, Vorwaerts, the Socialist daily published in Berlin, pointed out that  German law expressly requires  German civilians to attack and  harass an invader by every possible form of night and secret  attack.

Bella Coola   farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  ������������������"THE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

'This is the  famous Major Andre, who was  shot as a spy by George Washington for being within the American lines in' disguise. The  fact is, he had been sent by his  general, Sir Henry Clinton, to  confer at West Point on the Hudson, with that arch-traitor, General Arnold.  ��������� He obeyed orders and went,  taking .every precaution pf secrecy and disguise to escape the  notice of the enemy. In fact, he  was within sight of the English  lines on his return when he was  taken, and after a long court-  martial he was condemned and  andsholf But the traitor Arnold,  by Andre's self-sacrifice, escaped  the punishment he had so richly  deserved.
