Minneapolis Tribune: Rush orders
will be issued at once by the Great
Northern railroad for new engines to
take the place of the five destroyed
Christmas day in the fire at the round
house on Colfax avenue north.
Meanwhile the slackening of traffic
that comes after the holidays enables
the railroad to manage without being
seriously embarrassed by the loss of
the mogul and the four other loco
The loss of the roundhouse is being
temporarily met by having the minor
repair work, which «as done in the
one destroyed, handled by other shops
of the road. The lost equipment will
have been replaced by the time heavy
traffic begins again.
The fire which broke out Christmas
afternoon was difficult for thefirede
partment to handle. It is supposed to
have started from live coals from an
engine pan and had gained great
headway before it was discovered
Water had to be sent through 2,000
feet of hose to reach it. The build

collapsed on the locomotives in it.
There were 10 engines in the plant.

covered Four others also were sav
ed, but five could not be removed in
time and are little more than scrap
The fire fighters were in grave dan

galvanized iron which sheathed the
wooden walls covered them. There
were no injuries, however.

The 111 fortune of the German navy
was apparent at the beginning of the
vear. The strongest squadron afloat,
that of Captain Spee, comprising five
cruisers, had been wiped out in the
south Pacific ocean in December. A
few cruisers were sailing in African
waters and in the Pacific, raiding
British commerce. Of these the Dres

Naval warfare took on a new phase
early In 1915. TMs, however, was
not due to the elimination of Ger

purpose to close the ports of Germany
order to stop food and other sup

The Warsaw Drives.
Throughout the winter and spring
the submarine opeiations furnished
the chief elements of public interest
in the war. Howe^er, the situation
on the Russian frontier began fo take
on new and striking phases
The Russian chief, with his center
held to the Vistula west of Warsaw,
sent an army to strike Koenlgsberg.
on the Baltic sea. Still another Rus
sian force was operating toward the
westwaid on the southern border of
East Prussia, aiming to flank the Ger
man position before Warsaw. Making
a fierce lunge on the Warsaw front
early in February for a feint, the Ger
man general Von Hindenburg threw a
column into East Prussia, surprising
the Russians. This move compelled
the Russians to abandon their at
tempts in East Prussia, and by the
end of the month the Germans had
pushed the foe across the Russian
About the same time the Austrian
forces had defeated the Russians so
decisively in the Carpathian mountains
that they had been compelled to aban
don nearly all of Galicia and Buko
wina. German soil was at last vir
tually free of enemies.
An attempt to capture Cracow, In
western Galicia, had followed as a
part of the Russian plan to gain a foot
hold in Austrian territory. They had
pushed their column westward from
Lemberg in the autumn of 1914 and
left behind them the Austrian citadel
pf Przemysl. This place capitulated
late in March. 1915, and Russians be
gan a new drive over the Carpathians
tp Hungary with the troops which had
been laying siege to Przemysl. But the
Austrians promptly launched a force
eastward from the Cracow base. This
was successful and turned the Russian
line, facing southward upon the slopes
of the mountains.
Throughout the winter the allies had
announced a spring drive, "the real be
ginning of the war." About that time
there was a beginning of a new phase
on the eastern front, German and Aus
trian troops having formed a junction
in central Galicia during the winter.
For them the spring drive began in
May and did not stop until the Bus-

8pring Drives In Prance,
Meanwhile the allies on the western
front essayed an early spring drive
and on March 10 broke through the
German line at Neuve Chapelle,
France, where a three days' battle en
sued. Nothing definite was gained by
either side. Again, at the end of April,
spring operations began in France, this
time the Germans taking the offen
sive, along the Meuse river and in the
Vosges mountains. In Belgium they
broke up an offensive by the allies by
letting loose volumes of asphyxiating
gas, which paralyzed the energy of
the foe. The battle raged at Ypres
for two days, to the advantage of the

front till September, this notwith

Germans and Austrians on other fields.
Early In May the Germans and Aus

Cracow base. On the 15th tbev were
at the gates of Przemysl and had re
captured the railway center of the re
