by Associated Press)
Jan. 9.-Bad weather continues to
prevail on most of the major battle
fronts, but nevertheless heavy artillery
duals are proceeding, and at several
points infantry attacks of small pro-
portions have been carried out.
The Germans, in one of these man-
oeuvers entered British advanced posi-
tions north'of the Ypres-Staden rail-
way, but later were forced out by a
counter attack. Southeast of Verdun,
French troops have raided German
positions on a mile front, destroyed the
positions and returned to their own
line with 178 prisoners and some ma-
chine guns. The German war office
admits the French success in invading
the German positions, but says the en-
emy were driven from them in a coun-
ter attack.
Quiet on Italian Front
On the Italian front a heavy snow
is falling, and aside from intensive
artillery duels from the Asiago plateau
to the Piave river, and small patrol
encounters, there has been no fighting
worthy of mention.
British Hospital Ship Sunk
The British hospital ship Rewa with
wounded.aboard, was sunk by a sub-
marine in the Bristol channel last Fri-
day night. The wounded were saved
but there were three casualties among
the crew. The torpedo passed through
the red cross painted on the side of
the steamer.
Peace Meeting on Again
According to an Amsterdam dispatch
which probably en'inated in Berlin, the
Brest-Litovsk peace conference again
is in session with Leon Trotzky, the
Bolsheviki foreign minister, and the
German and Austro-Hungarian foreign
ministers and the Turkish Grand Viz-
ier in attendance.
