When this training is completed, they will go direct to the 'front to fight with the other British troops in Europe." Berlin, Dec. 3, via wireless to London, 3:30 p. m. To day's official statement was limited to the following brief an nouncement : "In neither theater of the war has anything of importance happened." I , i Parle, Dec. 3, 2:60 p. m Thp French official statement given out in Paris this afternoon says that yei Eerdpy there was a rather lively ar illery exchange at Nieuport and to he south of Ypres, and that a heavy (bombardment took place to the west of l.ens. Several German aaataks were repulsed. Otherwise the situa tion shows little change. ' The text of the communication fol I lows: "In Belgium there was a rather illvely artillery fire directed against Nieuport and to the south of Ypres. "The inundMfons have extended to ;the south of Dlxmude.

Petrograd, Dec. 3, via London. 3 35 rp. m. The Warsaw campaign of the Germans, which evidently was an at tempt on the part of invaders to carry everything before them by the swlft inees and the boldness of the opera tions of a comparatively limited num ber of troopB, appears today to com petent military experts in Petrograd to have resolvpd itself into a persist ent and dogged grinding against the, 'Russian center, making use of the re ,ently arrived heavy reinforcements to this end Main Attempt at Lodz. The main attempt appears to be centering around Lodz, and the Ger man wings are seemingly intent only on holding the Russians against flank ing operations. The military commentator of the Novoe Vremya draws attention to iwhat he calls a tactical error on the (part of the Austrlnns in withdrawing such a large portion of the army de feated in Galicia across the Carpa- Kg k luumi inouniajiiH niiu nuugBi, Russians meanwhile confining them selves to holding the passes Into the (Hungarian plain. Thus the Austri jans have comparatively few troops to .withstand the large Russian army and jto protect Cracow At the same t!m iother operations to the southward fare tying np large Austro-HungarLan tforces on the roads to Budapest London, Dec. 3. For the first time since the Germans wore checked in their advanoe on Warsaw, it was pos ;slble today to gain a fairly clear idea of the military situation In Russian Poland in Its border aspects. Advi ces from boUi Berlin and Petrograd indicated that tbe Germans had defin itely succeeded tn throwing back the enveloping Russian forces and were maintaining stolidly their positions fweBt of Lowicz. Furthermore, It is jaald that the Germans are again un dertaking an energetic offensive. I The completeness of ciuinges In the ituation is ascribed variously to the (failure of the Russian General Ran Tienkampff to close up the ring about Hue Germans and to the brilliant strat egy of the German leaders, Is Indi cated by a report telegraphed from Pe trograd by an EngliBh correspondent ;who previously had announced that (the Russians had won an overwhelm ing victory. He now states that tho Germans are holding their positions and that tho situation "remains ex i 1 . tremely hazardous." The latest official announcement from Petrogfrad states that the fight ing has become less severe. In Garcia, the situation is still confused Recent reports from Pe trograd that the Russians had invest ed Cracow on three sides, are now contradicted by an unofficial dispatch, which sas that the inadcrs an- eight miles from the city. The archbishop of Przemysl. the Galiclan stronghold, which has been under siege for sev eral weeks, is quoted as saying that the situation there Is desperate and that the surrender of the city Ira- Germany's determination to prose cute the war relentlessly is reflected in the virtually unanimous vote of the Reichstag for a war credit of 11,250, QOO.000 and In the imperial chancel lor's declaration that his country would fight to the last breath. In France and Belgium the dead lock remains unbroken. Although fighting proceeds at various points, there was no Indication that either side had won important advantages. I ondon, Dec 8, 7:55 a. m.

CARPENTERS' UNION COMMUNICATION Editor Standard: After a lengthy discussion upon the attitude taken by the Morning Examiner in making such n vicious attack ou organized la bor, and especially some of the most earnest workers within our ranks, we feel It our dutj to the public to In form them thai the so-culled "com mittee of three" was not a self-constituted i-ommiltee, but was duly ap pointed from the Building Trades Council of which we are n pari and their actions are fully endorsed by each of the one hundred and fifty members of this union. It was also the sense of tins meeting that ti" membership of this union cease to patronize The Examiner until 9UCD time as they may show the puhllc that they axe what they claimed to te In the article written against the representative- of our different labor unions, a. we feel thai no fair mind ed person could think so little of our several labor bodies as to believe I,, them guilty of purposely sending out men from their midst to make trou ble for any ono. It is one thing to say what you aro, and another thing to make others believe It. In The Examiner of last Sunday morning, we find the remark that "The Examiner has made a reputation as a purveyor r.f fair and honest news " Now please search out the fairness of those re marks In that article, and note the lionrstv displayed. Of course the pub lic, as well as the labor bodies, have learned cmite a lesson by the experi ence The Examiner says it has noth ing to take back. That, of course, Is up to them We feel we have some awfully brave men in our midst Nov, In conclusion, we will sty that the Cereal plant Is still being; erected by foreign labor while we tiave Utah men idle and we have lieard of no changes being made on th state cap ltol bplng built under the same con ditions Will The Examiner give the facts in these cases, shhwlng why Utah labor was turned dorn by Utah capital?

The operations around Lodz seemed to foreshadow the surround ing and annihilation of the Russian main body, but the (iermans them selves were surrounded by strong Russian reinforcements from the east and south. The (Jermans. however. 1 liberated themselves with heroic en ergy from this envelopment and re limed their attacks with Indomitable persistence. The gigantic offensive movement of the Russians from Sol dau to f'racow has already failed "The plan of campaign, originally made in Paris In the interest of l-'ia.iee and Lapland, was that Russia should throw her chief strength against Oermany, In order to relieve the pressure on the western front The intention was to make an Irre sistible offensive and compel the with drawal of such large forces from France as to make possible Anglo Trench success.
