After a compar ative lull, caused 1v stormy wcatlur, liKhtin bctweon the allies and Ger mans in northern France and UeU'ium is becoming much fiercer, aceordin:-; to an oHicial eye witness" narrative written by a menxber of the Maff of Field Marshal .Sir John French and i.-.sued by the government press bu reau today. Jt states that German airmen raided Fumes as well as Dunkirk, dropping many boml. The Germans liave been carrwn on a violent bombardment of Armen-tierc-i.

"Tho Germans have again bombard ed Armentieres (nine miles northwest of Lille) and also shelled our line on tho left. "To tho north the Gorman aviators have displayed more activity by bombarding Dunkirk and l'urnes from the sky. The weather was fa vorable for aerial work, being bright and frosty. "Tho last day of 1914 parsed quiet ly all alon,' our front. "Tho lighting Is now taking place on ground where both sides for weeks past have been excavating in all di rections until it has btcoino a perfect labrynth. Sometimes where new ground is being broken the spade turns over long burled dead, ghastly relies of former tights. On all sides the t-urfaeo Is plowed and furrowed by fragments of shells and bursting bombs. Set n from a distance it pre sents the appearance of a confused mass of passages, crossing and re crossing each other. Tho life of the infantry on both sides in their close quarters haa be come very monotonous. There is but ono dull background mud, water and distorted held. The roads leading to the allies' front present a kaleido scopic aspect and strangely contrast ing views?. All types of humanity can bo seen from the wild Arab horse man of the North African deserts to the tribesmen from the wild frontiers of India. Here and there are detach ments of French cuirassiers, giving an old world touch to the scene. Leaving the trenches can be seen columns of cold, hungry men, their uniforms masici? of mud; but all are cheerful. Prisoners Sick of Life. "German prisoners we have taken appear sick of the life they have been leading In the trenches, but this is pr pa My not a fair indication of the sertlment of the German troops as a whole. They are conscious that the war will last much longer than they first anticipated, but the fact that it is being watred almost entirely in alien country prevents them from realizing that they are lighting for what must eventually prove a losing cause. They believe firmly that Rus sia has suffered a decisive defeat. In fact, it is reported on Dec. is. the Germans had all the hells in Client tolled to celebrate the capture of 00,000 Russian prisoners." Soin of the MKiIes.

RUSSIANS TAKE AUSTRIAN FORTS Capture Village of Mshonka With 3000 Men, 68 Officers and 10 Guns Germans Move to Relieve Their Allies. PKTTIOGRAD, Jan. 2. The capture of the Austrian fortifications around the Galician villages of Mshonka and Mshonka itself, together with 3,000. men, GS officers and 2 0 gams was clli cially announced here today. The of ficial statement follows: "South of the l'ilica lighting is pro ceeding in the vicinity of Popushno, Michalagora, Wolnio and Polikhno which command roadways leading toward Kieleo in Galieia. Hussian attacks are being delivered near Kemy, in the region of Corlice and in the districts around Mshonka and Kopczyce. In spite of stubborn re sistanee we have stormed and cap tured the fortifications and the village of Mshonka, taking P.,U0i) men, 6S ofli cers and 10 guns. The battle continues with the Austrians delivering furious counter attacks, supported by attacks from armored trains. So far they have been repulsed with the bayonet and hand grenade. In the Uokowina region the Kussians have occupied Storonice and Itadauck, capturing many prisoners." bniiuins Push Southeast. According to dispatches from War saw. Gen. von Mackcnscii, commander of the ninth German army, which has been in the -thick or the lighting for the past six weeks around Lodz and Lowicz. is pressing toward the south east in an effort to relieve the pres sure which the Kussians are directing against the Austrians in the Carpa thians and northern Galieia. This indicates that Field Marshal von Ilindenburg's next campaign will be directed to save the Austrian troops and to prevent the reinvestment of Cracow. It is reported that the Russians ar3 invading Hungary from four different points showing that the situation in the eastern part of Austro-Ilungary is more serious than it has been at any previous time. Heavy troop movements are under way on the border of Fast Prussia and Poland.

T Filipinos Will Not Be Ready for Self-government Until This Generation Passes "Taft WASHINGTON. Jan. J. That tho Filipino people will be unfit for self government for at least another gen eration, was asserted today by former Pres't Taft before the Philippine committee of the senate. He testi fied at the hearing on the Jones hilb for the granting of a larger measure of self-government to the Islands. Mr. Taft took the ground squarely upon a statement of Pres't Wilson do lining self-government and the duty of the American nation toward the Filipino in that respect. "Mr. Wilson was absolutely right." said Taft, "when he wrote 'that self government is not a mere form. It cannot be given. It is a form of character which follows after long discipline. No people can be iven the character of maturity.' " The ex-president declared as com mission in the Philippines he sought to advance education and the partici pation of the natives in the govern ment to the extent of their ability. In this policy he said tho commission was opposed because the military ele ment and the American merchants, who were antagonistic to any move ment toward the ultimate independ ence of the islands. Can't "Make cr" Generation. With a hearty laugh Ir. Taft said: "Why, gentlemen. I am in a position where I can tell you what I think. I did not ask to come here, you invited me. I am like the man up an apple tree, you've got to listen to what I SEND BOY BACK TO Buffalo Youth Finds Friends in Salvation Army Gives . up Struggle. Tli at there is another happy home in Huffalo. N. Y.. today is the opin ion of Fnsign McClements of the Salvation army. Saturday McClements sent on his way rejoicing back to Huffalo, Willis Whiting, 14 years old. who drifted into the city a few days iigo, penniless and homeless. Last September Whiting lived with his widowed mother in Buffalo. She took in washing to Keep herself and boy. Willis thought this too much and that he was big and strong enugh to face the world alone. So he suddenly left one day for the west. He lnul saved nough money to take him to Chicago. After being' in Chicago for some days lie managed to get work for his board with a farmer. He remained with the farmer until the latter gave up his farm and Whiting was "out in the eoid" again. He then began drifting about from one town to anotner eking out an ex istence as best he could until he leached South Pend. He was found penniless, almost in ra-s and in despair. Some kind-hearted friend directed him to the Salvation Army hcadquart ers. He. was immediately taken in. fed. clothed and cared for. He finally told his story and his name ami expressed the wish that he could again be home and ice his mother. Saturday morning he was put on a l-ak- Shore train by Kttsign Mc-Fienn-nts and sped on his wav to PoiUalo. CLAIM I'OltTCNi: OI' skhi.ooo. ULOOM1NHT'. N. 111.. Jan.

Kejes of Springfield, but which was not to be paid until today. HIS 1 MOTHER 1 1 .K..'.J.:-a I R have to say. You ask me how long it will take to make the Filipinos lit for self-government. I tell you it will be the time necessary to give thes people to learn English so well that they shall become an Lnglish-speak-ing people. 'You cannot do that in one generation. Not all of the Filipino are now being educated. More money should be spent on the schools theie. "Remember you cannot make a gen eration over a generation of adults, H0 per cent of whom are woefully ig norant and out of touch with civiliza tion." As illustrating the enthusiasm for independence among the ruling class in the islands, Mr. Taft stated that there was one party called the "party of progress and independence," an other "the party of immediate inde pendence," still another the "party of urgent independence," and an ex treme group calling itself the "party of independence explosivista." A group of leading, educated Fil ipinos seeking during the Aguinaldo insurrection to establish a party for independence by peaceful means, filed a brie with Mr. Taft alleging that since there were twice as many edu cated Fil pinos as there were political positions to be filled, there could be no question as to their fitness for inde pendence. They could not under stand his position, which was that tho existence of public opinion would con trol the government, and not the ex istence of men who could fill oflices, was the essential factor.
