LlilE FOR A L0!!G TIME London, Feb. 18 The military cor respondent of the London Times in a reoent survey of conditions, said that there i little likelihood of any im portant advance movement y either side, on the western front for a long time to oome.' Under the present oon- dltions of weather and saround, with artillery which knows the. ' range of every landmark exaotly, be argues that a successful offensive Is next to imjpoaaiible. . . "The district in which the British army is operating is practically a. swamp," declares this observer. , "Water stands on tha stiff slippery and j holding clay, rendering the movement of infantry across country impossible. For.weake on end it has rained, and when it has not rained , thick mists have enveloped tne country. , The deep trenches ara filled with water, and the necessity of standing in ' this has cost us many casualties. . . "It Is only on slightly rising ground that life is at all supportable. The fronts of the rival armies are covered with a IsaibyrixrtJl of . trenches. On both sides the front lines are often only peats of observation. Acres of barb wire cover meat of the positions. In rear stretch many Unas, sigsags and communication trsnohea. . ' Breastworks have been construct ed toy both, armies on the top of the ground to meet the difficulties of hold ing1 flooded trenches, while strong posts, defended . villages and . farm,-? steads, and other arrangements, com plete the positions.

"Iuring all the months that the British have occupied this district, only three direct hits have been made fcy Oerman shells upon the British guns. An attack, therefore, has to deal I with an intact artillery which knows every range to an inch.- , ;,v "A forward trench may often (be as saulted or mined by either side, or it may 'be knocked to bits fcy heavy shells, or cleared' by trench mortari and hand grenades, but a local success of ' this character has , nq conse quences, i'.

"The British army is not accustom ed to winter campaigning and Is hot Inured to it. Its . campaigns have usually taken place In warm climates. It had its lessons to learn and It haa cost something to learn them. In spite of this the army has stood the test remarkably well, and is probably in 'better health than any other, friendly or hostile, operating rn the region." a . '.::(- .'..'-;' Sunday, Jan. 24.

"Our worthy clerk met me with the announcement, 'There be rare goings on In the North Sea this" morn., '. . . "Why?'
