While the Bir.il centre has retired townni saw it lias not completely withdrawn in the face of the foe, but has en- trenched itself for a decisive battle, On the result of this ibaUle the fate of Warsaw will probably depend. On their right, however, the Rus- sians have secured a victory over the Germans, gaining ground which they iad lost after the hattte of Soldau, From Soldau, which is within the frontiers of East Prussia, the German left had evidently the Rus- sians back towards Mlava further east. The tables have now been turned here, the enemy forced Sack to his own territory. The reports Zrom the south of Po- land are not definite beyond the. state- meat that the Russian leit has driven back the Austrian? who line! advanced from the Carpathians.

GAS COMPANY'S -HfGHrHANDED DEMAND Not satisfied with raisiagyiiie price of gas the Gas Company is sisting en a deposit before the.gas is" supplied to tenants or hoaxes ot lor a kitchen where a furnace is used. A deposit to itself ircm losses through delinquent users of gas may 'be legitimate on the part o! the com- pany, but the sums demanded are not only too excessive, but are neither reasonable nor just. a consolatory crumb the company offers' interest on the deposit at the rate of 5 per cent- after sis. months, a very benevolent offer at a time when money is dear. At most half the amount claimed by the company- could be considered legitimate or reasonable, and its pres- ent action is not only arbitrary but, voracious.

The whole conduci of the company is harpy-like, and is certainly not conducive 'ingratiat- ing .itself with the public, nor in en- couraging the use of -gas. People have a betts- for their money in these tunes than loaning it to the gas company at its own terms.
