(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
LONDON, Dec. lS.-Lord Raglan, gov
ernor of the Isle of Man. Is placed In a
curious position by tbe present war. Al
though he Is a British peer, his Island Is
regarded as not forming - part of the

theless, the Isle of Man Territorials are
a portion of one of the Liverpool regi

a part of Kitchener's army.
Meanwhile, notwithstanding the neu
trality declaration, there are British
troops on the Island, and a detention
camp for prisoners has been established
The Isle of Man la administered accord

any acts of the Imperial Parliament un

censored, but all private mail matter is
subjected to careful scrutiny.

RUSSIA PLANNING NAVAL
BASE AT ALAND ISLANDS
(Correspondence of the Assodsted Press.)
LONDON. Dec. 1.-Berlln reports say
that Russia is planning to establish a
naval base on the Aland Islands.' The
Gulf of Flnlami Is now frosen over In
parts, but the Aland ports remain free
While the states Bordering the Baltlo
have objected violently to the construc
tion of fortifications on the islands. It Is
understood that a number of Russian
warcraft. Including seme of Its largest
sressela, have arrived there, and that pro
visional and ammunition have been stored
In great quantity.
The Aland archipelago consists of eighty
Inhabited Islands and Islet at .the mouth
of the Gulf of Bothnia. They were taken
ever from Sweden by Russls In 1809. They
are populated by about 26,0tX persons,
VIENNA, Dec. 18. The emperor, In en
roursgement of the effort made by the
women In behalf of the army, has be
stowed the cross of the Francis Joseph
Order for the first time upon a woman,
the wife of an Austrian lieutenant who
displayed conspicuous bravery by her
husband' side In the trenches.
Troops on Bicycles
Make Heroic Charges
(Correspondence of 'the Associated Tress.)
DUNKIRK, France, Dec. 18 That
troops mounted on bicycle msy be used
at times for. purposes of the charge, with
fully as good results as cavalry. Is said
to he-proven by the fighting at Apremont.
.Tbe X3exnuuia attacked the French de
fending Apremont, and compelled them
to. abandon one trench after another, and
fjn'ly. . the . town Itself. A desperaVi
struggle .was kept up, however, at the
main bridge out of the town. The Ger
man regiment surged to the attack with
fierce shouts, and It looked as if the
French . were to be completely routec
when. utpected reinforcements came np
tn the form of a company of cyclirt
Chs assure.' ,
The cyclist had unslung their rifles
and fixed their bayonets. Riding at top
speed, with their bayonet In front of
them itke lances, they swept through a
cloud of dust straight Into the crowded
masses of the enemy st the bridge head.
There was an Indescribable melee of
men and machines, but the cyclists, some
mounted and noma dismounted, used their
bayonets with such good effect that l
five minutes the Germans were in re
treat. By this time the French' infantry
had reformed and awept up at double
quick to reinforce the cyclists and make
the recspture of the town secure.
