London. Feb. 27. "All the ground
near the front line is plowed up with
sh-ils and furrowed with the remains
of old trenches and graves. The whole
place is a vaat cemetery in which our
trenches and those of the enemy wind
in every direction."
This statement is made by the Brit
ish official "eyewitness" at th front In
a description of the recent battles
southeast of Ypres and of the country
in which the armies are fighting.
"In a sheltered spot," he continues,
"there is a little graveyard where some
of our own dead bare ten buried.
Their graves have been care'ull mark
ed and a rough square of b-iefcs has
been placed around them. Ic front of
the trenches German bodiei still lie
"At one point of the brick fields re
cently some 30 men tried . ruuh our
line. At their head was a young Ger
man officer who came on gallantly,
waving his sword. He almost reached
the barbed wire and then fell dead, and
he lies there yet, with his sword in his
hand and all his 30 men about him.
"It is the same all alone the front in
this quarter. Xerywhere ill. gray
figures may be seen lying, sometimes
several rows tostether and Bometlmes
singly or in twos or threes.
"This description might served with
a few minor alterations for many ofj
the localities along our front where
To the Citizens of the City of Rock Island
As a candidate for City Commission
er 1 wish the voters tp know that I was
reared in this city, and hare resided
her practically all of my life. At the
age of 18 I went to work for th old
Rockford, Rock Island & St. Louis
railroad, (now the C, B. & Q.) In the
engine department. I resigned from
the road in 1S8S. anil during the last
IS years of that Berries I was a loco
motive engineer, most of the time
running passenger engines.
In 1SS9 I was tendered the superintendence-
of the Rock Island city wa
terworks by the late Mayor Planding.
which position I accepted and held
during several succeeding administra
tions, until 1839. ubeu I ensaged in
the liverv business, which business I have since conduct
ed. I reside at 1050 Twentieth street and if nominated
and elected I shall sever all business connections and tie
vote my entire time in rendering to the city the very best
service of which I am capable.

To the south of the Yprcs-Comines
canal. the "ej-ewitness" savs, the
ground, although there are some in
rlosures. is comparatively open. To
the north of it. however, there are
many woods, and these have become
a tangle of fallen trees interposed
with shell craters.
To add to the hardships of such 1
fighting, the troops have been attack-1

up to their knees in mud. j

"A counter attack on Feb. 17 also
was a most dashing piece of work.
Trenches occupied by the enemy had
been subjected to such a heavy fire
that they would not await our onset.
As our men charged forward cheering,
the Germans were observed to be leav
ing the trenches and hurrying to the
"In one trench, which became in the
course of the fighting more or less iso
lated. 40 of our men continued to hold
i firm until every one of them had been
; either killed or wounded. Eventually
; there were only three left who were
capable of firing, and these three con
tinued to hold the enemy at bay.
"In the meantime word was brought
to those in the rear that their ammu
nition was nearly exhausted, and seven
men. the strongest available, were se
lected to bring up as much ammuni
tion as they could carry.
"These latter found the three wound
ed survivors still standing amid the
bodies of their dead and disabled com
rades and still firing steadily. The
support, slender as it was, came in the
nick of time, for at that moment the
Germans launched another assault
which, like the previous ones, was
beaten off and the position was saved.
"Our howitzers did especially good i
work on the trenches ptured by the
Germans at one point. Observers
could' see one lyddite shell after an
other bursting In the trenches and
hurling the defenders into the air."
