They are said to have gained over a mile, and to have lost only two killed, with 14 wounded. It all reads like a very brilliant display, Indeed, worthy of the men who gained fresh renown for Canada at Paardeburg, which will, we are sure, be worthily consolidated in the pre- posslble to alleviate their condition. The cofld weather, which continues, adds to the terrible aufferinss, and temporary buildings of wood are be-, ing erected as fast as possible to house the homeless. The list of dead can gtlU oaly be estimated, but from what is known it is believed that at.Ieast 20,000 persons perished, and twice that number were injured.

DACIA PROBLEM ACUTE Britain Would Have to Seize London, Jan. 16.-r-Out of the state of virtual deadlock, which for weeks has existed in the east and west, there have sprung during the past few days, military events of more importance than followers of tbe war expected at this time. - They - are^ briefly: � l The Russian offensive towards new points on the frontiers of East Prussia and Posen; The fighting at Selssons; The expected Turkish advance on Egypt; . . The plans for a renewed-attack on Servia by combined Austro-German forces. To the west of Warsaw, large German forces,are still concentrated, hut they .are-not gaining ground, and it is thought likely that the fighting which Will develop as a result of the new Russian movement may, for the tlnie being, overshadow the previous battle for the Polish capital.
