Persistent statements continue Petrograd. June in- fantry, with surprising ease, has in- flicted a succession of great defeats on the Germans in East Galicia. The main attack of the enemy was con- ducted at Moscieka, with heavy guns on the railways, but it was spent be- fore the Germans reached the barbed e entanglements in front of the main position. They retreated in dis- order, leaving thousands of dead. Simultaneously the Russians start- ed an enveloping movement against Von Lansinnen's army, which had crossed the Dneister. Russian infantry attacked the Ger- mans, who had a number of trench guns, driving them from the woods. The Russians annihilated the Ger- man division, and captured 186 offi- cers, 6500 men, 17 field guns and 49 machine guns. The fighting lasted two The Germans are now entirely south- wards of the Dneister. Evidently they intend to develop an enormous force there. They .were headed by Prus- sian and advanced towards Hallcz, from where they proposed to conduct the main attack on Lembergr All their movements were, however, easily frustrated. HUGE LOSS The Germans are now gathering south of the Dneister, apparently wait- ing reinforcements. They have lost in the last six weeks in Galicia more lives than in the previous six months against the Russians everywhere. Minneapolis, Minn., June W Horwood, former Manitoba provincial architect, was on the stand before the Commission, most of yesterday afternoon. Fol- i lowing is the summary of his most important evidence: The actual estimated cost ot the caissons was not over Kelly not for the work. The difference was to go into the Manitoba government's campaign Horwood iater sinned a state- ment that Kelly had sent a letter offering to do the job for which is claimed to be a bid. The file of correspondence was destroyed at the orders of Dr. Montague, ex-Cabinet minister. All the indexes had to be re-writ Kelly never said anything about paying campaign money to the Liberals. The caissons were reported to be 70 feet deep. Actually they were 40 feet deep; the contractor was paid for the 70 feet. Another Graft Unearthed the Royal Commission met this niominE, Horwood was again put the objection was sustained by the Commission. Produce Records -Minneapolis, Minn., June YVhitla, K.C., produced before the Roy- al Commission, here today, Salt's orig- inal and presumably true record of the caisson job. It gives the total yard- -tge as 25.194. or yards less than the Quantity "'for which Kelly got paid [or. According to the progress esti- mates, the contractor received 037 for yards. This works out-at ?25J5 a yard. Aisuming.thls to be a fair price, Kelly should have got for the caissons. He wss. therefore overpaid Counsel says, however, tnaf 523.45 a yard exorbitant figure. If this is the case, the real overpayment to the contractor on this part of the Parliament building job would be considerably greater. the scope' of the present inquiry, and inc ulluicii, uu i'- they will proceed to the -church 7.20.
