LORD KITCHEKER TALKS WAR TO HOUSE OF LORDS Field of Operations of Allied Ar mies Described. London, Nov. 26. The Russians have defeated the Germans with the heaviest losses yet suffered;" "the Ger mans have made no advance since I last addressed this House," and "the Brit ish are in touch with Turkish forces thirty miles east of the Suez Canal," were the salient points of a speech made by Field Marshal Earl Kitchener in the House of Lords this afternoon when the British Secretary of War summar ized the military operations. ' Lord Kitchener paid a tribute to the gallantry of the. Belgian army and to the Kinz of the Belgians who, he de- to Uol QUf wtvs - - .u.vm..- - -i Belgian, territory. He said the losses of the Allies wVe great, but at the same time were slight compared with those of the enemy, and tnat the allied troops were in excellent spirits and con fident of success. . NEEDS MORE MEN. Regarding recruiting, Earl Kitchener said he still had room for men and he was confident that the men would an swer the country's call and see that the war was brought to a successful conclu sion. He said that about thirty thou sand recruits were enlisting weekly. 'The time will come when we shall require many ' more and I will then make it thoroughly well known," the field marshal said, and , added that in the meantime all the gaps in the Brit ish force on the Continent had been filled.. " Referring to the German advance on Dunkirk and Calais after the capture of Antwerp, Lord Kitchener mentioned that in spite of the overwhelming sum ber of the German forces the British troops vigorously attacked and a British cavalry division extending over seven miles of trenches threw back the fierce attacks of a whole German army corps fort more than two days. The arrival of tho Indians on the scene, he said proved to be a great advantage, and when the fresh re-enforcements pushed forward the German march on Calais was stopped. Lord Kitchener spoke of the splendid fighting qualities of the French troops and of the pluck of the gallant Bel gian army, whose fine resistance had been strengthened and encouraged by the co-operation of the British fleet, which had effectively shelled the Ger man artillery positions." Sir John French's successful resist ance to the uerman advance, ixra Kitchener told the Lords, was main tained notwithstanding that the Ger man supports had been pushed up in large numbers. "In the early days of November," he continued, "no less than eleven array corps were attacking the British posi tion. At this critical period the Eighth division was sent from England to join the forces in the field, and the valuable co-operation of our allies on our left materially strengthened the British po sition. . , GERMAN ATTEMPT FAILS. ' "On November 11 a supreme effort was made by the Germans. The Prus sian Guard was ordered to force its way through the lines at all costs and to carry them by sheer weight of numbers, But this desperate attempt failed like its predecessors, s . "StroDg French re-enforcements oc cupied a considerable portion of the British trenches in front of Ypres, and with their front thus appreciably short ened the British troops, which for over fourteen days and nights had never left the trenches or allowed the enemy to maintain a footing in them, were en abled to enjoy a partial well-earned rest." - Several battalions of territorials, the Secretary of War announced, had joined the British forces and had made them selves felt. i Referring to the It at phase in the conflict raging in Russian Poland, Lord Kitchener said: After a hotly contested battle the re- enforced Russian troops in this neigh borhood have been able to check and defeat the Germans with, I believe, heavier losses than they ever sustained before." Lord Kitchener also briefly touched on the lurtisn intervention ana saiu that the Russians successfully were ad vancing in the Caucasus, while an In- ian expeditionary force had twice de feated the Turks at the head of the Per sian Gulf, where they bad occupied thej important town of Basra and were alsoi in touch with a Turkish force thirty rci!; to the east of the Suez Canal.

The railroads of the country will glad ly welcome and encourage such a move ment for tby realize that the more a child is. taught the dangers of railroad crossipgs, playing on tracks and the importance of observing the danger signals at crossings, the fewer accidents of this character will occur. The same lesson should also be brought to the at tention of the grown-ups as well, for many of the' persons who use the public highways to day are too prone to "take a chance" when crossing a railway and many times the taking of such a chance has resulted in death or injury to many innocent persons. It is estimated that fully nine-tenths of such accidents are due to the contributory negligence of those who do not regard the signals at crossings. Many manufacturers have adopted the policy of instructing their employes in the safety first idea in handling danger ous machinery and it is known that such; instruction has greatly lessened accidents. Many of the railroads who own mo tion picture outfits have gladly co operated with the school authorities in loaning such machines for the instruc' tion of tbe cbildreb and it fs believed that such instruction will greatly lessen the number of accidents at crossings and railroad yards.
