Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta aibffetald VOLUME VIII. LETHBRIDGE. ALBERTA. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1915 NUMBER 204 Position of the Retiring Russians Still Menaced By Teuton Forces Berlin, Aurj. German War Office announced today the occupation of the fortress of Ben- j ami now, which lies to the east of Nova Georgfevsis, the Russian stronghold on the Vistula, north- west of Warsaw. London, Auo. yet there is no proof that the Germans have-withdrawn, or are preparing to withdraw any considerable pro- portion of their forces from the eastern front. On the contrary, the offensive which led to the fall of Warsaw has not been re- laxed, and the position of the re- tiring Russians still is perilous. Partial dismantling of Vilna, preparatory to evacuation, as re- ported from Petrograd.. is some- what puzzling to British com- mentators, inasmuch as the Rus- sians assert they have repulsed Germin attacks around the fort- ress of Kbvno, which Is sixty miles northwest of Vilna.

Retlaw Case is Aired in Court The echoes J.uiy 21 have not en- tirely died away yet. At Court this morning, Elijah L. Pilling was fined ?20.00 and costs for an as- sault on the person of Thomas Greg- sou at the polling hooth at Retfaw on July 21. Gregaon was a scrutineer at the booth, and- while he was attending to his duties Pilling came un invit- ed him to come with him behind an empty schoolhouse, where he wished to say a few words with him. Upon arriving at a secluded spot, Filling- proceeded to investigate the where- fore of certain reports that he c'iaim- ed had been circulated about him by Gregson. The argument became more concrete than more words could make it. Gregson laid a charge of assault against Pilling. C. F. P. Conyheare prosecuted and P.. A. Smith was counsel for the de- fendant. Pilling.pleaded guilty, but claimed that he was justified. He paid the fine.

Land New Troops at Strategic Point on Gallipoli to 1 be Forced Rapidly Now London, Aug. of the imperative Importance; to the Allies of forcing the Darda- nelles, as the shortest road to re- trieving the Russian reverses, and regaining the initiative, now in the hands of Germany, is de- monstrated amply by the sudden landing of British forces in the vicinity of Karachaii. on the north of the Gulf of Saroc, and the resumption of the offensive both at the southern end of the Gallipoli Peninsula, and north of Gaba Tepe. The Australians and New Zea- landers recently have been strengthened in their positions at Gab.i Tepe. The new landing place on the Gulf of Saros, being on the flank and rear of the Bulair lines, If de- veloped, would menace the strong Turkish defences across the neck of the peninsula.
