A big mino field is also oporated in Hartle- pool Bay. Thajtsyo towns are a yery big fil centre, and have Tery extensive harbor and as such would -be a good reason for the Ger- mans to bombard; or, if they are at: itempting an invasion. It would be a" ldeal; spot to land troops. The popula- tion of the places is about and tlrey are defended by about Ter itorials, wiio have, since the war commenced, dug a series of trendies right .along the sea shore, and wouldi no doubt !be able to give a good ac- count of themselves. From the sea, the most prominent r-Iacps which be sure to attract the German fire, are a fine old Nor- man church, called St. Hilda's, at Har- tlepool a row. of steel works on the tlepooi a row'Oi sreci ou sea front to the south.of West Hartle. facilities with all the most Jniportant pool, and the Parish Church of West Hartlcpool.

The gas works, which are re- ported to be: seriously damaged, are situated midway between.the two towns, and supply the 'whole district with gas. The tiraher ponds which are reported to be on fire, are very extensive, and, in fact..are among the largest ou the northeast coast. If these ire all destroyed the damage Hi r in UP to thousands of dollars.

Situated as the town is on two bays, with Scar- borough Head in between, and with long rows of houses stretching for miles alone the.sea front. It would ba an ideal place to bombard. The City Hall; wJiich is reported to be damag- ed, is a building, and -can be !Ky seen from the sea, and would be ine target for giin fire. The harbor us only an artificial ose, and is mainly used fsr'fishins boats and small coast- ing steamers.
