It was stated that instead of paying upon the standard of 50 per cent, upon the old 1879 standard, the owners had varied it hy paying to to 46 per cent, in. some cases, while in others the full amount. was paid. There t.-a.s a good deal of dissatisfaction in the district, and threats were made in several collieries that tools would be put down and work stopped if the owners did not pay in ac- cordance with the agreement.

ITHE BALKANS PROBLEM
THE BALKANS PROBLEM I Mr. Hilaire Beiloc on the Probabilities. Mr. Hilnire Bflloe. writing in the cur- rent issue of "• Land and Water," on "The New Balkan Factor," says the enemy's problem of controlling the rail- way to Constantinople is the problem of clearing and grasping the north-eastern earner of Serbia. An attack upon Serbia from the north, even if made with the full force calculated as necessary (not less than 500,000 men) would have a very i difficult task with winter approaching, ft has one line of easy advance, the lower | valley of the Morava, with its railways, for the first few days, after which -the road grows narrow, and after the first week's march becomes mountainous, while, on the rest of the front difficult mountain country with no roads begins st once. But the enemy is attacking with much less than the minimum number required for success. He lias not the half-million, but at the utmost a quarter, on the Belgrade-Orsova front, and is attacking w hen, his Reserves of men are very near exhaustion. But the Bul- garian Army can immediately mass forces upon the north Serbian frontier alone of over 150.000, and it would ap- pear unquestionable, that under a pres- sure of forces, whose total is not only double their own but converging from two rectangular fronts, the defence of the all-important line from Xish to Sofia and Constantinople must crumble. Being at the end of his reserves of men, the enemy is striking where he will have the most political effect. While, if the Allies can send and maintain an army sufficient to save Serbia, it would be amply worth while, though no decision was possible on this front. If the enemy got to Constantinople and equipped the Turkish forces lie would still not be I within a thousand miles of winning the war. Mr. Belloc cstimatea that the least number of men from the Allies that ivould turn the scale for Serbia would be 200,000. This figure would not com- mand a superiority, but it would prolong' the defence, and it would have effects exceedingly important at this crisis. It would give Bulgaria pause. The writer points out the problem of supplying such a force. rji

170 CASUALTIES I
170 CASUALTIES IN LAST LONDON AIR I RAID FIFTEEN SOLDIERS AND 41 CIVILIANS LOSE THEIR LIVES AIRSHIP IHA T HEELED OVER I The following appeared in our 6.30 p.m. edition on Thursday:— LONDON, Thursday Night. The War Oflica announces that hostile aircraft visited the Eastern Counties and a portion of the London area last night and dropped bombs. Anti- aircraft guns of the R.F.A., attached to the Central Force, were in action. An airship was seen to heel over on its side and drop to a low altitude. FiVe aero- planes of the Royal Flying Corps went up, but, owing to the atmospheric con- ditions, only one aeroplane succeeded in locating an airship. The aeroplane was, however, unable to overhaul the airship before it was lost in the fog. Some houses were damaged and several firee started, but no serious damage was caused to military material. All fires were soon got under by the brigades. The following casualties are reported: 1 MILITARY Killed, 14; [ Wounded, 13; in addition to the one announced last night. The Home Office announCe6 the follow- ing casualties other than military casual- ties reported above: C I V I LI AN S Killed: 27 men, 9 women, 5 children. Total, 4]. Injured: 64 men, 30 women, 7 children. Total, 101. Of these casualties, 32 killed and Of in- jured were in London area, and these figures include those announced last i night. ZEPPELON LOSSES.

The toll has since been increased.

Estimate based on the regulation crew of a naval Zeppelin (!<>>, a. military Zep- pelin (12), and a Parseval (6). There is consolation in this record. which is based upon the official announce- ments made from time to time by the bel- ligerents. and on information obtained from neutral sources by the Scientific American/' whose intelligence resources are excellent. EFFECTS OF THE RAID. Commenting on the latest raid, the "Daily Chronicle" says: "The raid was notable in two respects. In the first place the attacking airships were decidedly numerous (the communique refers to them as a fleets In the second place the period of time. during which one or other of the invaders was bomb-dropping (and so court- ing detection and destruction), was; very considerable indeed. Moreover the night., in spite of a certain amount of fog over the Thames districts, was perhaps as clear as any autumn or winter night without a strong wind is likely to be. In these cir- cumstances the fact that all the Zeppelins escaped scot-free justifies a certain dis-I1 appointment." The Daily News cays: No part of the material damage inflicted, slight as in fact it was, was of a kind to diminish this country's capacity for carrying on the war," THE BERLIN REPORT. All the Airships Returned I Undamaged." Amsterdam, Friday.—A BerHn offic-ial1! telegram sa.'

The City of London, which sustained several attacks, the London docks, the waterworks at Hamp- ton, near London, and Woolwich, were b'vishly bombarded with incendiary and explosive bombs. At all the places the gfeat efforts of the explosions and-big fires were observed. Tn spite of a vigorous counter-action which began when the airships reached the O-ea,t. all the airships returned un- da to aged. 'Signed'' Chief of the Admiralty Sftil

Lord Morley, however, commented gravely on the new campaign in Serbia, and suggested the danger of dissipating the national forces by intervention in the Near East. Lord Milner advanced on this. He put j forward the view that it would involve loss loss of prestige in withdrawing from the Dardanelles than would be the ease if the expedition should end in disaster. The Marquis of Lansdowne deprecated as unpatriotic this line of discussion :n face of a grave situation.
