OFFENSIVES EVERYWHEREI II I
OFFENSIVES EVERYWHEREI II I Russians Take Kolomea and 6,000 Prisoners. British Raids and Italian Gains For a full week now the artiv!+y on lhe British front lias been proceeding with steadily increasing intensity, while the German efi'orts at Verdun lias been ilackening. The -Germans report stronger infantry assaults, more numerous jia^s attacks, and patrol fighting on the British line. Apparently the enemv its preparing for all eventualities by evacuating the civil population in Lille, Roubaix, Tourcoing, and other large towns behind his lines in France ajid Belgium. Nor is it only on the British front that events are moving in our favour. On the Russian front our Allies have made fresh progress bevond Kuty and taken 10.500 prieone-rs. The latest news is that the Russians have taken Kolomea, an important town in the petroieitfn area of Austrian Galieia, and captured 6,000 more pri- tooers. The Italians, though now meeting with more resistance, have advanced aDO. made prisoners to the number of over 600. BRITISH. IN THE ENEMY'S LINES. I Thmsday .night's British official is as follows:— During the past 24 Tionrs a large -num- ber of our reconnoitring and raiding parties entered thp enemy's trenches at various points along the entire front of the British Army. I All these enterprises werp successful m achieving their object, inflicting heavy casualties on the Germans and captuimg prisoners and warlike In several instances our troops remained for a considerable period in the German lines, repelling hostile counter-attacks across the open. One of these enterprises took place after a discharge of gas, and our troops, on entering the German trenches found a considerable number of dead. Our casualties were insignificant. The artillery of both sides has beed active along the front and the hostile trenches nfcich damaged in many places. Intermittent discharge of smoke and gas has aroused the activity of the enemv's guns and caused bim to disclose his battery positions. ENEMY DAZED. I French Tribute to Our Troops. j Paris* Thiirsday--A correspondent of the Libertfi," telegraphing from the North of France to-day, says: The bombardment hy the British has increased in violence during the last 24 hours all along the front. The earth trembles, and the roar of the cannonade is uninterrupted. Explosions follow one another at inter- vals of a few seconds. Not only have the first line trenches heen at certain points completely wrecked and obliterated, tsSfi She British artillery has reached the second and third line of the enemy's defences. Munition depots five miles behind the front have been exploded. Prisoners taken wear a dazed and be- wildered expression. The Germans are, too, much harassed by the incessant raids of the British infantry, which they are powerless to stop. The assailants are in excellent spirits. Detachments go up to the front singing, and all present a magnificent appearance. NEW GUNS FOR THE WEST. I The Echo de Beige says the Germans are bringing up from central Belgium new long range guns, of especially heavy calibre. RUSSIA. CAPTURE OF KOLOMEA. I Important Town and Many Prisoners. Paris, Friday.—The Echo fie Palis" saysThe capture of Kolomea dates lwick to 2 o'clock in the afternoon of 29th June. In the retreat to the Northern Car- pathians over 6,000 more prisoners were taken, and an enormous quantity of booty also fell into the hands of the Russians. Marshal Hindenbnrg has definitely failed. Kolomea is in Austrian Galicia, J3 miles N.W. of Czernowitz. It is near the pet- roleum region. ANOTHER 10,500 CAPTURES. Petrograd, 1 hursday. The official com- Jnunique issued to-day is as follows:- Yesterday (June 28th) after an artillery preparation. General Lechitsky's troops, in spite of the enemy's desperate resist- ance, dealt him a. violent blow In the region between the Dniester and the Pruth, carrying three lines ot trenches. Desperate fighting began on the front along the River Tonertovetz. a tributary of the Dniester, and the River Tcher- niava, a tributary of the Pruth, as well as in the region of the town of kuty, where, by daring and co-ordinnted work af all arms. our troops once again in- flicted severe losses on the enemy. The number of prisoners taken in the I'-ourse of the day, so far as they had been counted up to fievøn o'clock in the even- ing. was 221 officers d 10.285 men, be- sides a large number erf machine-guns. One of OleT regiments, tried in many battles, captured a heavy battery of four puns intact, horse? and all. This success brings the total of German and Austrian prisoners captured in the fighting during the period between June .U.h and the beginning of the present operations up to 20.5,000, men and officers included. Caucassus Front.—In the direction of "Er/indjian the Turks attempted to t:1e the offensive during the night, but wvie rc-i ulscd by our fire. In the direction of Bagdad the Turks about midday attacked in strength our positions in the Kerind district, but were ,topped by our artillery fire- ') In the fighting north-west of Pulkarn. on the right flank a company of the I glorious Siberian troops especially distin- guished itself. The enemy's artillery and trench mortars demolished the trenches l and wire entanglements of the company • i"; question, hut the surviving defendeiB, commanded by Liout. Obertyinski, did not abandon their positions. They held their ground firmly, repulsing all enemy attacks with the bayonet until reinforce- men-ts arrived. ITALY. MORE POSITIONS OCCUPIED. I The Italian communique issued on Thursday through the British Press Bureau, said:— Between the Adige and the Brenta (the 40-mile front along which the Austrians conducted their recent offensive against Italy) we continued our advance yesterday notwithstanding the increasing resistance of the enemy as they reached their pre- viously prepared positions. In the Val Arsa our Alpine troops stormed the fort of Mattassone (4! milee south of Rovereto), and detachments of our infantry carried the ridge of Mount Trappola (in tbe same sector). During the evening the enemy launched a violent attack in the Zugna area (pre- sumably near Zugna Torta, further north) to delay our advance, but was driven back -with heavy loss. On the Pasubio (Trentino frontier, W. of Arfeiero) we took some trenches near Malga Cosmagnon (about 3 miles within Italy). PEDESCALA OCCUPIED. Along the Posina line (S.W. of Arsiero) our advance was delayed by the nature of the ground and the fire of heavy batteries from the Borcola (W. of Arsiero, on the frontier). Our troops, however, chased the enemy from the rocks, reached Griso, and carried the strong positions of Botta on Mount Majo. In t.he Astico Valley (S.W. of Asiago) we occupied Pedescala (which was reached by cavalry on the previous day). On the Sette Comuni plateau the enemy strengthened the northern side of the Assa- Valley (N.E. of Arsiero), the heights on the left bank of the Galmarara, and as far as the Agnello Pass. We established ourselves on the south ern side of the Val Assa and gained pos- session of the trenches near Zebio and Zingarella. On the Careo our infantry succeeded in penetrating and occupying some of the p-pfivvV ♦■"•enchco.. On Wednesday so captured tiM pris-I oners, including 21 officers, four machine guns, arm, ammunition and material. This morning two hostile aeroplanes dropped some bombs on Udine. One of these fell on the civil hospital, killing Iavt women and wounding one. No otiitr damage was done.
LIFEBOAT SATURDAY I
LIFEBOAT SATURDAY. I, Swansea Effort for a Deserv- ing Cause. To-morrow (Saturday) will be observed as Lifeboat. Flag Day in Swansea., and an army of young ladies and wounded sol- diers will be in the streets of the town selling the emhlems to help the funds of a world-wide institution which is deserving; of such great support. No organisation, i indeed, has a better claim to the generosity of the British public than the lifeboat service. Their work appeals to the strongest in- stincts of our race, and even in view of the many public appeals which have been made of late, it can be taken for granted that Swansea's response, as in the past, will be a generous one.

VERDUN HOLDING OUT
VERDUN HOLDING OUT. And German Trenches J Entered Elsewhere. TO-DAY'S FRENCH OFFICIAL. The follwing French communique was issued through the Press Bureau this afternoon:— In Belgium yesterday towards 11 p.m., following upon artjlery- pre- parations, the Germans attacked the salients of our lines in the neighbourhood of Nieuport-Lom- bartzzole road. Our counter-at- tacks, which was immediately launched, drove them from a por- tion of the trenches where they had gained a footing. Between Chaubries and Roye a strong erman reconnaisancc, caught under our fire, was dis- persed before it was able to reach our trenches. Between the Oise and the Aisne two patrol parties met with the same fate, one in front of Quennevieres and the other to the north-cast of Vingre. In Champagne a small enemy gren- ade attack on our advanced post to the west of the Butte Des Mes- nil was easily repulsed. On the left bank of the Meuse the Germans during the evening and in the course f othe night, multi- plied the offensive actions against our positions from the Bois de Avourcourt as far as to the east of Hlil 304. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. Paris, Thursday (received Friday).— j To-night's semiofficial communique says: The battle has been renewed before Ver- dun. where the enemy has attempted since yesterday two violent attacks on both sides of the Meuse. On the right hank the Germans once again hurled themselves, towards eight o'clock in the evening, against our posi- tions north-west of the Thiaumont work. The preparatory bombardment lasted more than six hours, and paved the way for the assaulting columns, which never- theless, did not succeed in making the least advance, our artillery barrage and the fire of our machine-guns having pre- vented them from reaching our trendies, and having successively decimated them. The following night and day passed with- out another sign of an offensive by the enemy's infantry. [n the Eastern sector, on the other hand. the cannonade maintained its activity. Completely repulsed at Tliiau- tuont, the Germans, about four o'clock this afternoon, returned to Hill 301. On the left bank the continuous bom- bardment of the position in the last few days foreshadowed an attack which the enemy had already vainly tried to deliver the evening before. Thi tr flu- t violent artillery pr, proration, he was able to leave his trenches and attempted to advance towards the pastern slope of the hill, but our salvoes of musketry stopped his dash, and in- flicted a new and sanguinary defeat upon him. The end of the dav was only dis- turbed by a grenade fight, and an artillery duel in Avocourt Wood. On the rest of the front the British bom- bardment is also still violent. Our bat- teries, too, are showing t hemselves very active in the Sois Sotmc; ditrict. and in Champagne, but, to rpiote the terms of the enemy's bulletins, "the situation on the whole is generally the same as on the pre- ceding ccllaayyss
GERMAN GUNS FOUND I
GERMAN GUNS FOUND. Pretoria. Thareda.v A most interesting official announcement has just been issued. Prior to the surren- der of German South-West. Africa, it was known that the enemy threw very large quantities of armament and munitions [n?o the Otjikoto Lake, n?r Tsumeb. Owm? ? the depth of the water and the strong undercurrent it was most difficult to recover the booty, b,it,tlit, efforts made so far have proved successful. Four Ger- man field guns, two machine-guns, large quantities of gun and rifle ammunition have been recovered, and alo a quick-firer which had been captured by the Germans in the engagement at Sandfontein at the end of September. 191-t.

WOMEN SUBSTITUTES I
WOMEN SUBSTITUTES, T lw Home Office on Thursday stated thafl in 34 of the largest industrial centres local i,clvi,,ioi,y coi:ir-iittPe,.i have been set up for rhe purpose of substituting women in in- lustries in the place of men who have been ,al,lt-d to the Colours. So milch importance s attached to the maintenance of essential industries that others are contemplated, md, subject to certain conditions, the men's trade unions have relaxed their rules in regard to the employment of n'omcn in occupations hitherto regarded vs exclusively belonging to men. Already i very large number of women, running nto hundreds of thousands, have been engaged on work formerly done by men.

PASTOR AND BEAR j a1
PASTOR AND BEAR. a- -1 Ammanford Cyclist's Alarm- ing Experience. A most unenviable experience befel the R-ev. B. Ellis Jones, B.A., pastor of the Capel Sewydd (C.M.) Church, Amman- ford, while motor cycling in the moun- tain region between Dinas Mawddwy and Dolgell v. North Wales. In a solitary spot he came face to face with a savage-looking brown bear, which had just devoured a lamb on the roadside. Mr. Jones was at the rime dismounted, and the fierce beast came slowly and stealthily on, taking a distinctly uncomfortable interest in him, but the rev. gentleman stood his ground and for a time they gazed defiantly at each other. The bear's hunger had evi- dently been appeased, and eventually it turned towards the hedge. This gave a loophole of escape. Jones quick]v started the engine and flashed off like greased lightning." A mile and a half further on he ]>a>sed a encampment from whence, proba Hly. the brown bear had broken loose.
FRENCH COAL SUPPLY
FRENCH COAL SUPPLY. Meetings of the Executive I Committee. The Central Executive Committee of Great Britain for the supply of coal to France met in London on Wednesday and Thursday.

Marshall (secretary). The meetings, we understand, were of a prolonged char- acter, and a large number of iiiatter6 of an administrative nature and obscure points had to be decided. It was evident that local committees will have a considerable amount of work thrown upon them, and will have wide power invested in them which will result in an effective control of shipments to! France. The French representat ives were a io present at the meetings, and it is practic- ally assured they will have their machin- ery in motion for the carrying out of the scheme in about a fortnight's time. Complaint of the shortage of tonnage were general from rll districts, and it was explained that everything possible was lie- ing done by the Government's depart-; merits to lessen this evil as quickly as pos- j sible. -<-

LLANELLY AND EDUCATION
LLANELLY AND EDUCATION, The statement made br Aldermai Nathan Grithihs, as chairman of tin Llanclly Borough Education Committer, a we-ek or 60 ago, to the etfect that the local schools were closed for five months last year, was challenged at the meeting of the committee by Councillor J. L. Jones. who taid he had t'ince made in- quiries and had found that one school, and he presumed that the same could be said of the majority, was opened on 200 days, making in all -1C0 openings. As the schools were not opened on Saturdays or Sundays that would account for 104 days, so that there would only be 61 days left. and these could not be made into more than two months. He held no brief for anyone. hTht thought it was only fair that a true statement should he made. If it were true that the schools had been cicxsed for five months it would be a re- flection upon the committee to have paid the teachers their salaries for that period. He had, however, ascertained that the chairman's statement was incorrect. The Chairman: What I meant was Saturdays included. (Ironical laughter). The application of the certificated ap- sistants and the uncertificated assistant* for a war bonus, as well as the applica- tion of the manual instructor for an UJ crease of salary came up again. It was decided that the Clerk should make inquiries as to what is paid by other other authorities, and also what a bonus of 26. or 3s. would mean.
