The Australians are being asked to pay a heavy price for victory at the Dardanelles. Already, the reported casualties exceed 7000, and, judging from tfne latest re ports from the front, this heavy total is unfortunately likely to be considerably augmented. It is safe to assume, however, that for every Australian p.aced out of action a heavy toll has been exacted from the Turks. Comfort as also to be gleaned from the fact that a large proportion of the casualties sustained by the Australians are only of a minor nature. Shrapnel wounds have rendered a good many men temporarily hors dc combat. After a period of treatment in the base hospitals a large Dumber of thef-e nun will be able to again take their places in the firing line. A study of the latest casualty lists shows that already some of the men wounded in the earlier engagements have returned to the front, only to have the misfortune to be again placed out of action. Two such cases appear in the latest list of casualties pub lished in to-day s paper. A table of the losses to far announced by the Defence department appears below. It will be seen from an examination of the figures that to date Victoria and New South Wales have been called upon to bear considerably more than half the total casualties. Ihe combined losses oi me two States represent more than the strength of a complete infantry brigade. A further heavy list of casualties is to be ssBiied by the Defence department tonight, making the thirty-seventh published siuec the landing in 'SaUipoli.

ANNOUNCEMENTS DELAYED. COMPLAINTS IN PARLIAMENT. The extraordinary delays which are occurring in connection with the announce ments of casualties to the Australian troops at the Dardanelles was referred to by Mr. Cook in the House of Representatives yesterday. He desired to know if the Defence department was taking any steps to secure prompt, advtice of the casuahies. In has own case his son was knocked over on the ' first day, but he was not reponea wounded, iters until six teen days after. Mr. M'Uratfc: I have a case where a man wae IdUed on the first day, and new of hi death only came to baud ye teruay. Mr. Cook: There was some thins- wronir. The men were in the hospital and their relatives should be informed of their injuries. He asked the Minister to look into the matter seriously. The Assistant Minister said the delays were unavoiouue. xuat was their advice. - It took some time when the Len were in noepittst for the officers to go rouna ana secure nne names oi the men. Mr. Cook: It onirht not. The Assistant Minister: Colonel Legge interviewed the Minister before lie went away, and he wtH ascertain the facts when he reaci.es tne iront. 1 FEDERAL LABOR PARTY. MEETING OF EXECUTIVE. PREPARING FOR ACTION. No time is being lost by the newly-arj- pointed executive of the Federal , Labor party in dealing with the resolutions carried at the Inter-State Labor Conference, which eat recently in Adelaide. Hitherto the direc tions of the triennial conference have been passed on to the Parliamentary party to take what action it miht deem necessary and expedient, litis arrangement, how ever, was found to be unsatisfactory, and an executive body was constituted to "crack the whip" over the caucus, in order that the will of political unionism might be given effect to more readily. Parlia mentary influence, nowever, has not altogether been overcome, for the nruident of the executive body is Senator Givens, President of the Senate, and the vice-president is Mr. Hughes, Attorney-General. The first meeting of the executive was held yesterday in Melbourne. A complete list ot tne resolutions earned oy the conference was placed before menVbers, and matters which are considered urgent will claim first attention. Itis believed that chief consideration is oeing given to the constitution alteration (referendum questions), which, as already indicated by the Prime Minister, are to be submitted to the peope at an early data.

Infantry Hattalion,. who was wounded on four occasions during the initial engagement in Clallipoli, make intent-sting reading. I To commences a long descriptive letter to his relatives in Ka.it Malvern by an account of the journey from Mcna camp to Lenir.cs Island. "I got ashore three times at Lemnos," he savs. "and visited three native villages. The people are mostly Greeks, and they I were very decent. J here is hardly a tree on the island, but good soil for cultivation and grazing. It bus an excellent harbor, which is very large, thought to be larger t'han that of Sydney (ay it softly). Though large, tne troop eliips .had to be tied, together to make room for other shipping. There must hove been over COO ships in the harbor altogether. Incitement was caused by an enemy aeroplane Hying high over the fleet. However, it soon dihappcared when onr aeroplanes got tip." Australians Outnumbered. A reciUtl of facts connected with the landing in Oallipoli follows, leading up to an account of the writer'" own experience's on the battle f3eld. "When the 2nd Urigade landed," lie states, "we drove the enemy back to the third hill after a tough fipht. It was .here tliat our left Hank suffered, being greatly outnumbered. The lire of the battleship encouraged our chaps and proved exceedingly valuable. It was here that I had my first shot, and very funky I was, with bullets and shrapnel falling all around. Hut one iwon gets accustomed to it all. It was funnv to sec men coming into the firing line duck their head'Ttt our own war ships' fire. At this stage we were within 30 yards of the lurks, but tnere was thick scrub, sometimes waist high, in tervening. I claim to have got a Turk through the Wad here, and when wc ad vanced I took a cartridge from liira as a kecpKake. Wc successfully drove the Turks oil the third lull and readied the top, where we got it hotter than ever from their main position on the fourth hill. A machine gun soon fixed me up, a bullet piercing my ritfht thitfli bone. It, of course, broke my leg I also got a scratch on the left elbow. The nearest shave 1 had was when Iving disabled on the ground. A bul let landed about three inches in front of my bead, sending dirt down my back. I could not move, so had to lie still and pray. Later I called out and suid I could not move, and mv si. inner (f.'antain Hook). who was near, and an ambulance man ran out and carried me back over the hill. Our chaos were droiiDine wholesale, and they were on t'e point of falling back, when supports arrived and saved tue situation. Thirty Hours' Crawl With Broken Leg At this time tho enemy were spelling the Tear of our line, to .prevent strppoite coming up, so, jat'.ier .than fali into the lianda of the Turks, I bezan to drag myeolf down the hill, and A'it h the he u of a counle of chaps I got about '20 yards. I lay there trom s.3U a.m. tin aoout p.m.. gettuig three more wounds one in o.v3i foot and another in the right arm. T. ey were Aii cauied by Shrapnel.

In support of this statement he mentions that a patient in an ndjoining bed bad had the frcnt half of a uuagli and aioo a Knee cap Diown on. A YOUNG OFFICER'S LETTER. Shot While Rowing to Shore. Lieut. A. R. Heighway, a young officer not yet 21 years of age, who was wounded in the fighting at Oallipoli, has written the following interesting letter to his either, Mr. A. E. Heighway, of Melbourne: "We left Cairo about six weeks ago (the end of March), the news being welcomed by all ranks. I wad immediately ap pointed baggage officer to the regiment, and was responsible for the loading and unloading of all regimental stores a very tedious job. I started about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and finished up at 5.30 tihe next morning. Half of our regiment left from Ab-u-eUa station and half from Cairo No. 7 platform. "Wo arrived at Alexandria at 8.30 a.m the following morning, the train taking us right on to the pier. We then embarked on the Galika, bound for goodness knows where, but were informed as soon as we left port that we were bound for the Dardanelles. Well, we got going a couple of days after we embarked (we had to wait to take on provisions), and after four days' sailing arrived at Lemuos, a beautiful island south of (iallipoli, in the Grecian Archipelago. This island is claimed by the Turks, and also -by the Greeks. As soon as the lintisli arrived Uney expeued all the lurks and used it as an intense diate base for our troops. We arrived at the entrance of the harbor just at dawn. The entrance was guarded by four torpedo boat destroyers, and a huge submarine net with an opening just large enough tor a transport to steam through, and there, laying just inside, were twenty or so British battleships, including that magnificent Dreadnought Queen Elizabeth. The inside harbor ia very email, and to allow all the transports to come in every two ships had to tie up together. We all fully believed we would be there for a few days only, but it was three weeks before we got away to (iallipoli. Our stay there was not without excitement. At dawn about three days after we arrived a German Tau.be waa seen overhead doing a Uttle reixinnaissance. He did not drop any bombs, so we were quite safe. Wc practised disembarkation at Lemnos, getting down rope ladders into small boats and rowing ashore, and taking up a position on the beach.. Unfortunately we only had an opportunity of going axhore once, but we had a very interesting day. We skirmished about a mile and took up a position on a hill overlooking a small picturesque village in a valley surrounded by Dutch wind mills These mills looked very pretty the huge sails going around slowly. The people wete grinding Wheat and oats. We went over to investigate. The women folk could not do enough for us, and they showed us all round the place. The village itself is very clean the main street being about 100 yards long. The houses are built of stone, very rudely laid. The' mnin industry is wheat growing, and at the time we arrived the crops were about six inches high and intermingled with wild flowers of all varieties. The first tiling that strikes you when oil get on shore is the strong smell of these flowers. I picked a few and pressed them in a book, which I hope I don't lose before I get home. A Trip on the Queen Elizabeth. "About four days before we left for Tur-key all the battalion commanders went for a trip on the Queen Kli'aheth to have a look for a possible landing place. They hail a glorious trip. They chose s place on blie wee urn shore, of the Gallipolt Peninsula at Kalia Tepe. Of course the navy is working in conjunction with us,- and gives us every help possible. It seems funny to be bossed about by lads of 14 to Id years of age. Them little midshipmen are in charge of a boat when they land us on the beach, but as soon as we set foot on shore we take command. The navy has command until then. "About 0 a.m. on Saturday morning, 25th April, we weighed anchor and sailed out of tiie harbor for Oallipoli. We got as far as Tenedos about 2 p.m., and anchored again until nightfall, .lust after dark we started for the fun. We steamed northward very slowly, with the 'Bull dogs' close at hand. 1 did not stay up to tee what was going on, but went to bed early, because I wanted a rest before the scramble next niorniiur. We were all ud at 3 a.m.. and gt tting everything ready for disembark ing, ihe men were very Keen. Gun Blown Into Air. "I'll never forget that morning as long as I live. Wo had stopped by 4 a.m. just opposite our lunding place. The Tnird Bri- Kade had been landing all through the nitht, and met with very little opposition. lint iiiat nt dawn at 5 a.m. -we started to get into the boats to land, and von ought to have hea'd the iio.se. The enemy seemed to have spuing up from the bowels of the earth. blirapnel was bursting all around iim. Several iiclls screamed overhead and dropped into the water without bursting. I lion ail of a sudden our war snips let bang, and the row was terrific. The Queen I'.lizuhecli sent a broadside on to Kaon 'lope, nnd tdew a gun which the Turks weie using with good effect into the air. The Row to the Shore. "During tuis sierformancc we were row ing towards the shore. Everything was going on nicely. 1 might say 1 did not feel the least bit nervous, but when we got within 50 yards of the shore tiie Turks opened tire on us. Then things were not too pleasant, because we couid not reply. Well, the bullets started to zip all round lis. Nobody was 'hit until we got within twenty )ard of the shore, and they turned a machine gun on to us. One 6f my men was Jiit first tohrougli the neck, then I was tle next to get it through the chest. It nearly knocked me out of the boat. I quivered up like a rabbit, but pulled my- sen togetner at once. i waa steering the lmat at tiie time, so I had to let go with my hands and use the tiller with my foot. I managed to keep the bout nosed for the siiore. The podr chaps biiat were rowing stuck bravely to it, and so did the others, i on could see a look of revenge on all their faces. A soon as we bumed the shore iney scrammed out except myself, three killed and seven wounded. I tried hard tO get Out. bllt I fi-Ot SS far AS ami.luhi.d and there I had to stay in the bottom of Uit boat. I believe a lot of my men were Killed when they were stopping on to the shore. The company eventually landed and took up a jiosition on the beach, tak ing uuvamage ot tne scruri as cover.

Tho extraordinary ochievcrneTrts of small party of Australian troops during the initial operations in Gallipoli are described by Lieutenant K. O. Cowey, of 3rd Bat talion, in a letter to his father, who resides at The Patch, near Dclgravc, Victoria. He writes: "Twice during the first two days' fighting the Turks pressed us so closely that I got my revolver ready to finish the job if the Turks did not shoot straight, as they cut my little bond up. Euuli time it was unnecessary. The first time, after being fired at from all quarters until they couldn't endure it "any longer, the men retired. I, knowing that in this case they did the right thing, let them and followed, and we got cover safely, leaving Captain Leer ond very many others dead. The second time we repulsed the Turks from the cover of our trenches. On Tuesday I was using two rifles with deadly effect till 3 p.m. During that time we wiped out about 300 charging Turks (eight of us), besides disposing of about 200 others, who all day long made unsuccessful attempts on our left ihtnk. "I had a trench dug during the night of Monday, and occupied a unique position. Tne Turks did not find it, and the few people in that trench undoubtedly saved the left flank from destruction. As you know, the only form of shooting in which I have beaten Bisley shots is rapid shooting. You can imagine then how many Turks I got tiring from dawn to 3 p.m. So rapidly that I had to have two riilcs, one to cool whilst the other was in use, and also a roan loading chargers all the time, at ranges from 250 to 700 yards. There are so many yarns about that people think this ia another chestnut, but the men who were with me, who were full of open-eyed admiration, and who would follow me to h now, can substantiate it all. ''We had put every Turk on the northeast landscape out of action shot 'em out of sight wh?n a cry of 'sniper came from south-east. I went round there and visibly accounted for four at about 100 yards, when I received my quietus. I didn't know what was the "matter: turned to get out of the trench right hand wouldn't obey, and arm danced at my side like a piece of rubber, so I just took hold of it with tjhe left band and climbed down about 200 feet of cliff where stretcher bearers got me." Lieutenant Cowey is now in hospital at Alexandria, but he hopes to be beck again in the firing line before long. OFFICER'S BREEZY NARRATVE. " Stuck to It at Big Cost." The following descriptive narrative of the operations on Gallipoli is given in a letter written by Captain Erie W. Tul-locb, of tiie lltA Infantry Battalion, to hist wife, ne writes: ''Here 1 am one of the lucky ones with a nice clean fcul-let wound through the flesh? part of my left thigh, sitting up in bed. On my left, a nephew of Sirs. Riddcll Stanley; on my. Tight is Major Alderman, formerly of Launceston. We are in a big tent in the hospital grounds, with ten beds in it, all oilicere. Close by is a big building with forty 'officers, and two other buildings contain about 800 men. They' look after us splendidlv. We all look very nobby in a suit of grey flannel pyjamas. We get up after breakfast, and bobble out into tlhe sun those of us who can. The men are strolling round looking up friends and iuquiring lor others. ilbat is the worst of it. nobody knows who is killed or wounded except in his own particular little part of the scrap not always then. The country and fighting was so 'dose and wild. "1 joined Nny battalion on an island south-wast of tiie Dardanelles, where the whole forces gradually assembled. I got a job as second in command of "B" company. We got orders as to when and where we were to make the attack, and practised embarking and disembarking into and from torpedo boats. We were all living on transports. One night we sailed. Half- the battalion got on board a battleship, the other (half on two destroyers. These took us all in darkness, not a sound or light anywhere, and landed us from rowing boats on Gallipoli just before and at daybreak. It was pretty light when our crowd landed, and we got rats. You know the sand hills round Bunbury how steep and cotitplicujted they ore. Where we landed was like that, only Uie bills were higher and steeper, and firm instead of sandy; the tides were more or less bare, and the top covered with thick scrub about waist high. The destroyer steamed in to about 150 yards from the shore. There we tumbled into ships' rowing boats snd pulled in under a deuce of a fire from rifles and machine guns. The boat on our left was caught by machine gun fire, and pretty well everyone of the forty in her were hit before she touched land. Wucn the boat grounded we jumped into the sea, and rushed across the beaah to the shelter of some boulders at the font of the cliffs. There we formed up, fixed bayonets, and rushed up the hill no easy job, as we were, officers and all, carry- )vnell!t97 hursoav. JsH c t Wf0Htr' 0 eOO, ,,P0, ....lOTgX . . .

I managed to get my chaps on a epnr half way up, with the rose of only one, and we stopped to help some people on our left, who nnd some rather exposed, country to cross. They had juwt made one beautiful rush which cost them about ten men, and we were able to enfilade the Turks' trench beautifully at about 600 yards, and cleared them out. We bagged four or five out of a squad a bit nearer on our left, and then continued our climb. We got to the top about 6.30 a.m., just in time to see some of the 12th Battalion bowled over. 1 saw Colonel Clarke, of Tasmania, and Major Elliott both hit, and the colonel was killed instantaneously. About 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. we had driven the Turks out of all their trenches withon three-quarters of a mile of the beach, and were able to take stock a bit. "I found I had been landed a long way from the rest of the battalion, and was amongst a lot of the 8th, 9th and 10th-. about 200 in all. little Lalor was senior officer left. We were about half a mile to the left of .the west of the brigade, and as it was an important ridge, we decided to stay there as long as possible. ,As it turned out. it waswcll we did. We were all mixed up, as I told you. While Lakir's people dug themselves in a little, I and about 60 of the 11th went forward to cover them, and almost as soon as we got the position the fun started. From a little after 9 a.m. their counter attack commenced strongly. At WJo a.m. we covering people had to get back, and from then it was plain hell. Our troops were landing all, the time. Perh.iis one third wore ashore "with no guns. So Mr. Turk naturally seizes the opportunity to throw every man he can raise with guns at us before we get any stronger, and our job was to stick to it at a big cost. Our casualties with Sunday, from 10.30 a.m. till 3 a.m. next morning, . wore more than over Uie next three days. We bad to get out of our Dosition and ' got a message from the rear (this was about 12 o'clock) to bang on, reinforcements ' were coming, and at 1 p.m. they began to arrive in dribs fend dratis, strung out by their long climb up the hill Now Zealanders and the 1st and 2nd Battalions. In that hour we were driven off a crest of our ridge twice, but went back again, and it was during the last time we were driven back that I got mine. The men had he-tired, and I was iust getting ready to fol low when I saw five Turks, all together. about 400 yards awav. Those stood ud and one had a look round with field glasses. I had a riile, and let them have five rounds rapid dropped one, and attracted quite a lot ot lire to myseit. Marled to 6pnni back and got it in the leg. .Stumbled, and sprinted like blazes till 1 got just past our owu firing line, where 1 dropped in a heap. I bandaged myself up, and stayed there for a while, till I heard the scrap coming nearer and nearer, and thought it best to get away to the dressing station if I could do so. With the helD of a nick handie and rifle I hobbled back to the edge of the rising, and the rest was to slide down for a quarter of a mile. The mile walk back to the beach took me three hours. There they took us on to a battleship the London dressed mv wound and fed me. 1 was pretty weak from loss of blood, otherwise right as the bank. Wound does not hurt, and has not hurt from (he time I got it, only 1 can't use the leg much, of court;. , , "We are breaking our necks for news, and get a little from people who drift in who were wounded later. Guess I will be back akain in a fortnight or so." Captain Ttilloch was one of, a group of eight officers (mates), ne is severeh wounded. Another is wounded, and the otner six nave all given their lives for then country. A SIGNALLER'S EXPERIENCE. Wounded While Bandaging Another's Injuries. oignaucr iieorge Planning, who wa wounded in both lees during the fi day's fighting in Gallipoli, writes to his mother at Bcaconitficld as follows: "Some of the sights (during the landing) were truly awful. It simply raiued lea. and the noise of the bursting shells wa deafening. A number of our fellows weri killed and wounded in the boats befon they got to Uie shore. That was on Sun day, the 25th. Wc drove the Turks bad almut three miles while our ar.illery stores, water and ammunition waa Win. landed under cover of the fire of five oattioships, which bombarded the forts with shrapnel." Describing the manner in which he received I as wounds, the writer says: "I had just finished binding up several other men who had been wounded, when a Intl. let cut a piece out of my leg about two inches long, and went through my right leg in the calf.' He adds that he was removed to Malta, where he was receiv ing excellent treatment. "Don't worry," he writes in conclusion. "I shall soon be all ngnt again: lor another go at them. A WARM TIME. Three Wounds In Thirty Seconds. IaMice-Corpornl A. B. Scott, of the 7th Infantry Battalion, in letter to his mother, who resides at Coburg, describes how ho was hat three times within 30 seconds. He says: "I stopped a shrapnel bullet in the shoulder, which went clean through. Then there is a simple little wound on the hand, caused by a piece of shrapnel shell. A rifle -bullet also entered my leg, and came out of the thigh. Fortunaitely no bones were broken, ami I was able to get back to the shore ahnnt three miles away, without help. Lots, of our poor ooys nave ieen ternnly wounded, but they bear it very cheerfiillv. They went into the fight without the slightest fear, and the position was almost impossible to take.'' In another passage Uie writer requests rus people not to worry, and appears more uuncernexi regaining tne anxietv. wnicn may have been caused to his rdaiives than he is of his own wounds.

In the south-east rain lias disappeared from the inland plains, and is of a purely coastal character contracting to the east.
