Smoker in Honor of the
Cranbrook Volunteers
In honor df the boys who have vol-
imtcered for the army the citizens.of
Cranbrook. arranged a smoker an
Tuesday in the Auditorium. The volunteers were at drill in the Skating
Rink wben tho city band joined them
and marched 'them to the hall.
The Inside of the hall had boen
splendidly decorated with flags representing Great Britain, the United
States, France, Belgium, China and
Japan, in addition to which there
were streamers of bunting spread
around the ball.
The meeting was called to order by
R. E. Beattie, who acted in the capacity of chairman. In his opening
remarks he said Canada is showing herself truly loyal to the British
Empire. Rofercnce to the United Empire Loyalists of 1312 as well as the
Strathcona Horse in thc South African war was made. The stirring
deeds done in these wars were to he
repeated by the volunteers who were
going to thc front. They would be a
credit to Canada aud the British
Empire. "Turn to thc valiant deeds
of the brave men in the South African war," concluded Mr. Beattie,
"and there shall be no doubt as to
the ultimate result of the present
struggle. We wish you all Godspeed
and a safe return."
The band were then called upon to
render the "MarseilleiBe," and all the
audience stood while it was being
A toast to the (volunteers was then
given coupled with the name of the
Rev. E. P. Flewelllng. With a few
words of encouragement he went on
to say that no prouder position could
be occupied than these men were now
filling and they would prove themselves faithful soldiers to our country. "Acquit yourselves like men
and be strong," was his advice.
A mandolin duet was then played
by W. W. Scott and Horace Steward. Dave Baldwin gave a concertina solo.
A. C. Bowness Baid1: "We know
you will distinguish yourselves and
uphold the Grand Old Flag and we
wish you Godspeed and a safe return."

Recitation by W. W. Scott, "The
Shooting of Dan McGrew."
Dr. King gave a very eloquent ad-
dress to the volunteers and it helped
considerably ln the step they had
taken in volunteering for their country. Ho said ln part: "Tbls meeting brings to mind more forcibly
than anything else the seriousness
and Import of tho situation as it
exists in Europe today. You have
received the message to fight the battles of the Empire; the call has come
and we are ready to give our last
dollar and our last man. ThiB is
Hot a proud boast but Canada is

among these dues is tbnt we must
keep our business relations live; if
we can do this we shall be successful. Wo must take care of the families left bohind; wo must take care of

are leaving today aro all single men

"We must properly realize our position and It is onlv by the constant

Cranbrook should be grateful to
Messrs. Tisdale and Milne for thle
effort that has been made. Our bosoms nil with prldo at Cranbrook's

A song was then given by Geo.
Dr. Bell, on behalf of the recruits,

who have done so much for us. Wo

Strike at the Sash and
Door Factory
. There is a little disturbance with
the Cranbrook Sash & Door Factory
workers at present. It appears that
on Wednesday owing to an attempt
on the part of the company to re
dime the wages a meeting was held
in the company's office between the
men and manager when the grievances were gone over but no satisfaction was arrived at. The men on
their part asked that a nine hour daj
he substituted for the present 10 hour
day, if this was done they would he
satisfied with the reduction; if the
reduction was made in wages for the
company to allow the men to have a
half-holiday per week when the reduc
tion would be good; or that three-
ipiarters of the wages be paid on the
pres.:nt basis when due and the remaining quarter balance in six
months. After much argument the
manager stated that he could not accept any of the above suggestions,
witb the result that the workers put
down their tools and walked out.
lt might be mentioned that tbe
men who are now on strike havll been
employed by the,Sash _ Door company for terms varying from one and
a half years to ten years, and all
are experienced hands. A speedy settlement of these unfortunate conditions is hoped for as the city can
not afford to have any mord men
walking the streets with no work to
In an Interview with the manager
of the Cranbrook Sash & Door Factory respecting the trouble now existing he eald:
You can hardly call the little
trouble at the Sash & Door Factory
a strike, the facts are as follows:
Ab everyone must know the lumber
business and Sash & Door business
have not been ia a vory flourishing
condition all the year round, and
since the war was declared it is almost impossible to get orders of any
kind. We havts still a few orders on
band but not near enough to keep
our whole staff employed and so we
decided to a:': the men to take a
wage reduction of 25c per day, it
they would do this we would keep
them busy making up stock.
We tnlked this over with the men
and they all seemed satisfied until
live or six days later, when they
asked to have it discussed aga'n.
This wns granted, and we tried to
impress it on them that it was more
out of consideration tor them than
for ourselves that we were trying to
keep them employed, as In making
up n large amount of stock At a
tlm- like this, we were taking
cbnnccs on hnvlng to bold it for
lo-iio time and prices on all kindB of

Letter from England
Many citizens of Crnnbrook wero
nuido happy yesterday by the receipt
of Kngllsh mail, lt wan on August
4th that Englnnd declared war
agaliiHt Germany and a letter from
which we tako the following extracts
bears tho same dato. It is sent from

Volunteers For The Front
Patriotism Abounds in Cranbrook—Recruits Joining Daily—Two Local Regiments to Be Formed—Colonel Mackay of Fernie Inspects Local
Men and Compliments Recruiting Officer
During the week there ha i iictn considerable excitement over the enlisting of volunteers and the drilling
that haB taken place every day. The
men are very enthusiastic over their
various duties now that they havo
got down to drilling, etc.; some of
them when first they signed on were
in a very raw state and to view
them now tho instructors must he
congratulated on tho improvement
they have made In whipping them into such excellent Bhape. Tho march-
,ng is almost perfect and since they
have had practice in shooting a vast
improvement can be plainly observed.
The 20 men whom Geo. Tlsdale, recruiting officer, was ordered to choose
for active service are all men of Hue
physique and well built to suit tho
requirements of the Bervice. To use
Colonel MacKay's words, "They are
as likely a bunch of men as it has
been my pleasure to see for some
time." The choice from the mnterial
on hand could not be bettered anil
Mr. Tisdale is to be conjrutulatcd
on the selection made.
While several df the volunteers called are not so well known to the
citizens of Cranbrook the majority
have a lot of friends.In the city who
will wish them Godspeed and a safe
return when they leave for the front.
A wire was received yesterday by
Colonel MacKay from Sam Hughes,
Minister of Militia for Canada, which
we give herewith:
Ottawa, Aug. 21, via Fernie, B. C.
Colonel MacKay, care Crantirrok Hotel, nrrivlng   on 513, Cranbrook,
B. C.
On   recommendation   of R.F.Greon,
M.P., we will take a'l the aldltlonal
men you send.   Another regiment   is
to   be   raised Immediately.     Please
send    men up to one hundred   more
on with    present    contingent.     Got
transport from Colonel Rov.
The explanation of this wire means
tbat instead of 20 men to leave
Cranbrook there would be 40 needed.
Twenty men have already heen selected and the other twenty will he selected today and Monday as the recruiting officer decides. This contingent of 40 men will leave Cranbrook
on Wednesday neit.
In addition to the above there is
to be formed two or three regiments
especially for home defence.     We are
asl-.ed to publish under the authority of Colonel MacKay that none of
tbe men wbo volunteer for tbeBe regiments will be required to leave the
city; theBe regiments will be stationed at Cranbrook and the men who enlist therein will all b3 ln thc city all
the time and none will be moved
elsewhere. Additional troopB may in
necessity be required by the Dominion
Government and the men in these volunteer regiments will then have the
opportunity of freely volunteering for
tho further service if tbey wish, but
lt will he entirely ol thoir own llrce
will if they do.
There seems to be a wrong impression among some of the married volunteers nbout the requirements of
nctlvo service and we are asked to
state that no matH-r if they have tbe
consent of their wives to go to the
frrnt it will avail them nothing for
the present, as the instructions to
the recruiting ofllcir is to select only
single men for active service; tho
married men cannot leave home for
the present as thoy are not required
at the front. The married men have
a duty to perform at borne to their
loved ones and that is a duty no
man must neglect and should he considered a duty equally as great as
the duty of the single men in volunteering to fight their country's battles abroad in foreign lands.
Dr. King rightly struck the keynot';
of the duties of the married men
when addressing the meeting on
Tuesday evening in the Auditorium
when he said: "We who ure remaining at home have our duties to perform and chief among these dutieB is
tbat we must keep our business relations alive; if we do this we shall
be successful. We must take care of
the women and children who need our
assistance." All honor to those who
go to the front but honor is still
due to those who keep the home Vor
their return. And who can do this
bettor than the married men of the
Recruiting will still go on apace
by the officers in charge and it Is to
be hoped that as many as possible
will join tbe regiments now being
formed. It wns suggested to the Colonel yesterday that a machine corps
be arranged for and he told thoBe attending him that this would eventually be an adjunct to the regiments
formed.    If   the recruiting   proceeds
as successfully as it is at present it
is within tbe range of possibility that
a cavalry   regimtnt   would also   be
formed in the district.
Nelson   said   before   the battle   of
Trafalgar "England this day expects
that   every   man will do his duty."
The opportunity is at hand for   ull.

England United in a
Silent Conspiracy
London, Aug. 1G.—On arriving in
London what most impresses you is
likely to be the absence df any nnvs
concerning any movements of tbe
English navy and army. Tbere is a
Conspiracy of silence on the part of
the English people of the most unselfish und patriotic nature, says a
well-known war correspondent,
No interests at this time in any relative, ship or regiment is permitted
to outweigh the wishoB of all for thi
success of all. This secrecy aa to tho
present plans or tho whereabouts ot
any military unit is not only enforced by the orders of tho War Olllce,
b>it Ib the wish ot everyone.
A father, brother, son, leaves to
join his ship or regiment and after
that bis family neithers knows nor
socks to know whore he may be. It
is a splendid compliment to the loyalty to many millions who muke no
cllort to see through thc wall of silence thnt Lord Kitchener hus erect
ed between them and their army.
We know that England has declared war. In the pnpers we can read
of the Red Cross societies und of
funds patronized by the roynl family
for those who mny be wounded, lor
those who mny he left fatherless and
for those who already have been lelt
without support. No one need bo a

Germany's Plight
London, Aug. 1C.—A military expert, discussing thc war situation,
The huge bulk of the enormoiiB
German army is advancing slowly
along a line that runs from Diest,
forty miles eaBt by north of Brussels.
The delay in the German advance
has probably not been due to the
obstruction of Liege and the general
resistance of the Belgians alone. The
massing of such enormous numbers
of troops has never heen attempted
before and doubtless it has taken
longer than was expected. Even
small armies can not fight in advance of tbeir commissariat. I! the
large swarms of men are not fed
tbey must fall. One of the reasons
Belgium has taken so many cuvalry
prisoners is that thc German cavalry
seems to huve repeatedly got out nf
rench of their supplies.
The test will bc far more severe
when this battle develops. Bvery
grent army contains many generals
who ran command 10,000 men, but
there are vory few who nre capable of
directing 50,000 or 100,000 men in ar-
tu.'il warfare. Not many human
brains, however gifted, can control
operations of a half million men
that stretches over sixty to eighty
miles of front. Von MolUte had on
ly a million men in the Franco -Prussia!) wnr.
There are many surprises in store
for ns in this way. It In easy enough
to nrm and drill the manhood of n
nation. It is e\traorillnnrll> differ
ent to handle II. In battle against a
(on of equal Btrength and valor acting on the deffiiHlve.
The result may ho tn doubt for
■lays. There mas even ho no ox-
trcmoly doflntto result nt all. Any
thing short of n (Incisive victory for
the German army may he counted as
an initial defeat.
Germany stakes hor first great
throw under conditions which do not
permit her to contemplate battle
with equanimity.

Garden Party
Ornnbrook did herself proud on
Wednesday when she arranged fer a
vast garden party, V. Hyde Baker
very kindly threw open his beautiful
grounds for the purpose. The object
of the occasion was to raise fund
for patriotic purposes and will b
handed over to the Government fo
such use as they In their judgment
consider best.
During the two or three days pre
vious to the entertainment a large
number of the young ladles of tbe
city had been driving around the
district and canvassing the city for
the Eale of tickets. Although the
amount has not as yet been totalled
it is presumed that it will be in the
neighborhood of $1200.
Thc parade formed in Baker street
at eight o'clock and the volunteers
headed by the city band led the way
to the grounds. The boy scouts in
full uniform were also in attendance.
During the arrival of the visitors the
band entertained the guests with several patriotic airs.
Thc grounds were splendidly decorated with bunting, (lags and a decorative scheme of electric colored
Vocal Bolos were rendered hy Mrs.

were given t>y Miss Patricia McDermot, Miss Glenday and Mr. Chas.
McKowan, Mr. Allen DeWolf and Mr.
Fairbairn. The Oddfellows Quartette
also took part, and probably this
waB the last time for many months
that the quartette will take part in
a Cranbrook entertainment as one of
its members is to be found among
the twenty chosen volunteers for the
Dancing commenced Immediately
'ollowing the program Mr. Chas.
Knocks acting as floor manager and
the Cranbrook orchestra of tive pieces
furnishing the music. The large tloor
was soon filled with the dancers.
During thc evcn'ng many visitors
called at the rcB.tf.nce of Mr.V.Hyde
Baker, which was thrown open to receive them and inspected his collection of curios, most of which are of
Indian origin. The walls of Mb den
are completely hidden by this interesting collection.
Various booths had been erected on
the grounds and were fnvly patronized. Ice cream was sold at a booth
conducted by Mrs. C. T. Davis and
Mrs. J. D. McBride. The mystifying
fortune telling booth held thrje diviners of the future, Mrs. A. C. Nelson, Mrs. J. E. Kennedy a-d Mrs.
W. C. Adlard. The fish pond wns
conducted by Mrs. F. W. Green, assisted by Miss Green. Numerous peculiar fish were hoo'.ed in the pond.
Mrs. Dr. J. H. King in picturesque
cowboy costume conducted the shooting gallery and was accorded a liberal patronage. The wheel of for-
tine was conducted hy Mesdames
( bristle, MacDonald and Beale and
the plungers were given every opportunity tO invest their change. Tbi

Burton, chairman; anil Mesdames

Tents were provided to serve as
ladles clon'< rooms. Heats were provided throughout the grounds and a
large bonfire added to the plcfur-
osqueneas of tho occasion.
The effort is one that will commend itself to all ot ft patriotic nature, and the results obtained with
such a abort time o' preparation, are

Patriotic Meeting
A number of the leading olttSOUS
hastily arranged for a patriotic
meeting In tho Ken theatre last Hun
dny. The programme was an excellent one and much enjoyed by the
crowded house In attendance.
Dr. >King   in   hln   address reviewed
the purpose fur which the meeting
had been called and went on to explain the arrangements for volunteers for the war now progressing in
Geo. Stevenson said in his address
that ther1 was not one in the room
who did not f -el they ought to do
something, and asked the question,
"Are we going to let the little British IsleB do it all? What are we going to do to help?" and then he went
on to explain the plan they had for
hold ng a garden party in Mr. V.
Hyde Baker's grounds. All the decorations, such as lighting, and the
wood for building th« pavilion and
other things necessary for Its success
were all being contributed free of all
charge to tht committee. There had
been 2U cars offered for the conveyance of passengers to and from the
grounds. Refreshments would be provided nnd'tickets of admission would
hi sold. In spite <X tbe heavy outlay thai must be Incurred through
tiie generosity of their friends all
would be gratuitously given. The
committee would not spend a cent
of the money obtained. Mr. Supple
would be the treasurer and the money would he placed in the Imperial
Bank far tbe disposal of the Government for war equipment of one kind
or another.
Dr. King announced that they were
fortunate in having Mr. Hillock of
Calgary present and that be would
be asked to address the meeting.
Mr. Hillock said he felt honored at
having tbe privilege of addressing
this patriotic meeting; it reflected
great credit on the city. In going
into a war, and especially one such
as we bave now entered upon, we
must lirst of all understand the
proper w'ay to express our patriotism, and next wc must grasp the religion of civilization and it will then
lead ur to a proper knowledge of th«
recognition of God,
"Wherever the Mag is swung it haa
this meaning, and as I once saw it,
"1 hough the King is dead, yet Btill
he lives; God save ths King.' "
Britain had made promises and she
would Keep them even though other
nations break them. Germany made
them and has bn.»;cn them on all
sides, consequently she must be punished and she will rightfully he, too.
Many references were made to previous wars in which Canada has tai-
en part, but no war has she entered
with her support, either in men or
money,, iu which she had greater
Germany had in mind when she
declared war that the time was propitious. Was it? Bhe considered
France was disrupted internally for
various reasons; Hussia was divided
against itself and thc House was at
variance with its ruler, tbe Russian
empire was in the worst condition
she ever found herself in; Great Britain was having its troubles over
the Irish question and harassed to
death over the militant suffragettes;
but, the British Lion never sleeps,
Hir Edward Gray was watching the
vailoua symptoms ahd( the nation
was ready.   (Loud cheers.)
"We have to admire the Btrength
uf character of the various members
of the Cabinet, who, when war was
declared forgot all potty diiferences
and combined with one solid front
to face to foe. Britain was thoroughly prepared and the nation as a
whole—the people—is now (facing the
strenuous times with calmness and
determination to do what is right."
Mr. Hillock went on and drew a
very graphic description of a modern
battlefield and of the outbursts ot
patriotism that are passing over the
countries. But the people must retain faith in Britain's purpose, faith
in her strength, faith in Britain's Bible first and last, and faith in tho
British lion. Reference was also
made to the Blood Reserve Indian at Macleod going to thc front
decorated with the Red and Blue,
and made a pathetic mention of the
parting with bis mother and sister.
When British patriotism takes hold
f all, irrespective of color or creed,
<■ are safe."    (Cheers.)
A solo was rendered by Mis. G,
Stevenson, "Fight tbe Good Fight."
The management thon threw on the
screen several patriotic pictures, tho
i.rat one containing the wording
"England oxpocti this day that every man will do his duty;" Queen
Victoria; King Edward; King George;

CRANBROOK, B.O    August 22, 1914.
No. 34
While at the present moment we
have little time to waste in expressing sorrow for our country's enemies, yet is it not a sorry spectacle
to see a great country like Germany
plunged into a war by the act of its
rulers—a war that can ouly ultimately result in its own undoing as well
as in serious injury of the civilized
nations of the world'. For the last
thirty years Germany has been in the
front rank of the nations of the
world in commerce, in science and In
literature. It has produced some of
the finest intellects and some of the
finest intellectual productions of tbis
or any other age. Yet its system of
government has been so contradictory
to its intellectual progress that tht
commality of its people have bd.n
dwarfed and withered into a condition of militaristic superstition that
belongs to a period of generations
ago. And now this antique Bupersti
tion has suddenly, at a word, been
called into control, and the whole n.
tion has gone mad witb a passi. n
for assassination which it calls war.
lt is too early to speak, and it
would be presumptions to pred.ct,
concerning the progress and probata
events of the early stages of this colossal contest—but concerning tbe fin
a.' consequences th?re can be no possible doubt. Germany is doomed to
be crushed. The war despite the astounding casualties up to date, is on
ly in its preliminary stages. So far,
reports would indicate that the German arms have been unsuccessful even
during these early operations in
which fortune was expected to he favorable to the Kaiser's forces. As the
contest progresses it is quite within
the possibilities, if not th1-1 probabilities, that Germany may seem to be
successful in its operations on land.
As months roll by, however, it will
become more and more apparent
that the power of numbers must make
itself felt. Russia has aB yet scare
ly started to move. When it moves,
it will be with a deliberation, determination and power that will he simply irresistible. France at the present time is engaged in precisely the
style of warfare for which the temperament of its people is best fitted—
thut is to say, warfare consisting of
rnpid, brilliant and dashing engagements. This style of lighting Ib certain to consume several mouths of
time. Then, if the greater numbers
of thc Germans have succeeded in exhausting or seriously reducing the
French powers of resistance, the British army will be in a position seriously to take up th.' tight with^a bulldog determination uud resolution
that cannot be successfully opposed,
Great Britain has never sought quarrels—hut once It has been forced into
a light! it has never been known to
be the first contestant to ask for
peace. Germany has counted on a
brilliant and dashing campaign—and
thus has challenged France to the
very Btyle cW contest for which the
French are best adapted. Germany
has evidently not counted upon the
slow-moving determination of Great
Britain to bring up the rt'cessary reserves to render compact nnd invincible the armies of th> French Republic. Germany might overcome? thc
Frencn defences; it might even Invest
Paris; it might, possibly drive French
army after French army from on?
field after the other. Still, it could
not rpnsonahly hopp eventually to
triumph. Thonp armies would const an My reform, and in reforming
would slowly but surely be strengthened nnd steadied by the addition of
British troops, which will Inevitably
be poured Into Pranoa with nn exas-
eratiug delli.pratli n that will n it
permit even the e.i ntempiatlon o.
abandonment so long as an armed
German or Austrian soldier has h:s
foot on the soil of Franca or Belgium.
Wild guesses are being made all
over Canada ci nrerning the number
of troops that Great Britain has already landed in France. The numbers
are variously estimated at. from forty thousand to two hundred thousand men. It is probahl.v that eighty
thousand is an outside figure. There
Is no immediate need for an overwhelming British expeditionary force
to land. Them will be nothing disastrous In French and Belgian troops
being driven .hack towards Paris. The
forces of Great. Britain will come to
the rescue of the allies slowly, anil
not before they are go equipped and
trained as to be able to Rive a good
account of themselves, Under i the
most. unfavorable circumstances,
France, single handed, will be able
to conduct a defensive war for
months.     It is the certainty nf   the
steady landing of trained British
troops on French soil that is the
important feature. Those who know
Britain must be assured that, day after day, week after week, and month
after month, those landings willta-e
place—and thoj also must know that
whatever numbers are required fin illy to crush the German Invasion Will
be forthcoming. There will be no
turning back. Whatever other countries may do or may not do, Britain's
tight will be conducted witho.it excitement, without passion, but with
an invincible determination to Conduct the war to a satisfactory con

that never again will tho German
Empire—dismembered, as it inevitably will be—ever be able to regain
the position whero it can seriously bfe
considered as in any sense a menace
to European commerce or peace.
And to think that this seemingly
inevitable destruction of a mighty
nation, this.crushing of an enlightened people should be necessary by the
madness of one man, who has sacrificed the welfare of his people inertly that hia name might not be forgotten wben history is written. With
a devilish cunning be played upon
the natural paternal sorrow of D
senile man whose heir had been assassinated, and used that weakened
intellect for the purpose of precipitating the greatest conflict in h

were forced to fight more than four
thousand miles from their lase o.
supply, with which the> were connected by a narrow-gauge, single-
tracked railway, in a Villainous state
of repair. Today these sam* Russians are fighting an enemy that they
have hated for generations. For the
first time in many years, the Russian
nation is united. Th'? people feel
that they are fighting ior the preservation of their riirlus, their honor
and their self-respect. In numbers
they are overwhelming; in courage
they are not deficient—and during the
last tive yearB thoir military e.ulp-
ment has been brought up to the
highest Btandard. If Austria is
counted upon to hold thia mighty
nation in check while Germany overruns France, the two Emperors Ol
central Europe—the senile and the
mad—are doomed to a disappointment that will be fully realized only
when tbey Hnd themselves crushed beyond endurance hy the Slavic hordes
of tbe east.
While the land operations arc slowly developing themselves and making
a terrible progress up to tbe inevitable turning point, when the irresistible pressure of numbers will begin to
tell, the naval operations have suddenly taken on a more dramatic
pect. Tbe careless reader may no
have grasped at n glance the vital
significance of Britain's sudden declaration of war against Austria.
That declaration must mean that
England desires above all things else
to eliminate the Austria fleet in the
Adriatic at the earliest possible moment. A strong fleet jf British vessels, supported hy almost the entire
French navy, is now engaged in the
Adriatic and Mediterranean seas.
These powerful fleets, now that war
against Austria haB been declared,
should have little difficulty in
promptly and effectively destroying,
capturing, or sealing up the fleet of
Austria. When this has been accout
pushed, the allied fleets of France
and Britain, n iw engaged in those
southern waters—or at least a large
part of them will be at liverty to reinforce the British fleet in the North
Sea and the Baltic to such an extent that the Kiel canal will no longer be of use to Germany to enable
her to play hide-and-seek between
the North Sea and the Baltic. The
canal can then be blocked at both
ends, while the prpsence of a strong
British and French fleet off the
north eastern entrance to the Kiel
canal will enable the Russian Baltic
fleet to leaie its refuge in the Gulf
Of Finland and join the allies. These
are the considerations that make it
highly probable that the first naval
engagement of the war will take
place, not in the North Sea, but in
the Adriatic.
Huch naval operations a* are bere
reviewed must lead inevitably to tbe
practical termination of the naval
part of this great European strng
gie, Already the German merchant
marine bas been swept from the sev
en sra'i, Here and there a Gorman
merchant ship darts timidly from
one neutral port to another, only in
the hope that It may put off the evil
day when It must surrender as a prize
Of war. Thus at one stroke Germany
bas ceased to he a great commercial
power. From this time until the termination of the war, commercially
Speaking, It will be of no more consequence than a petty Palkan statu.
And after tbe war—what, then? Who
can doubt  that  the powers engage*1
Canada's Duties
In view of the events taking place
in Europe, which will constitute an
epoch of perhaps unprecedent Import*
ance In history, we appeal strongly
to all Canadian business men and all
who hold securities or investments of
any kind to meet the present Situation wuh calmness and confidence,
Our first duty, at any cost, is to aid
m Great Britain's sustenance and defence, and our next duty, uot less important, is to keep the business ol
thi Dominion moving as normally as
Let it he remembered that while we
must lay aside something to Pay our
shore of the cost of tbe war, we have
at our bock storehouses uf natural
wealth scarcely yet touched. As the
calamities of Europe place a higher
value on our wheat and other exportable crops, so will the same calamities—the result of militarism an J
conscription—make the peaceful lam

Of the best people of Europe whose
hopes and lands, generation after
generation, have been despoiled or
devastated by war. At the present
instant Canada stands practically immune f.om the physical mena& of
war; our fields are giving their wealth
to the harvester, and our other resources are yielding their bounty in
greater proportions than ever. Wealth
production is proceeding, and the opportunities for still greater primary
production are not diminishing. This
continent, including Canada, will profit largely and speedily by this changes in the world's currents of trade
during the war. Many of our factories will find demands upon them
stimulated because of restriction
placed upon the productive machinery
of Europe by the exigencies of war,
and though for a time in diminished
quantities, a fair proportion of Britain's available capital will come to
Canada for investment. l'nder the
circumstances, therefore, the onj
great essential to keep business moving is confidence, and Canada, probably of all nations of the world, has
least excuse for any lack 0f it.
"In the unprecedented and critical
situation that exists," says Sir Geo.
Paish, "it is of the greatest importance that everyone should endeavor
to act as if great events were not
impending. Were confidence Beriously
disturbed, business would come practically to an end, and our ability to
face tbe difficulties that may be in
front of us would be seriously Im-
.aired, therefore, it is of vital importance that, as far aa possible, the
events that are now tak.ng place
should not interfere with the daily
life and the daily work of the nation.
Orders should be given, factories
should be run, and everything should
be arranged to maintain, as far as
possible, th\> productive power and
the income of the country.
"But for this to be accomplished,
thc situation must be faced with
Courage and confidence on tbe part of
everyoiVJ. Investors must continue
to invest, hankers must continue to
hnd, the Stock Exchange must continue to deal, nnd every one according to his ability must endeavor to
work hard in order tbat individual
incomes, ftnd therefore the Income o
the whole nation, may be maintained
at the highest possible love].
"A little over a century ago, wh n
th*' nation was at war with Napoleon, its Income was a very small on ,
being less than one-eighth of what it
iH at present, and in a comparatively small space of tlm.' tbe llrltlsh
people succeeded In raising nho it L'l,
(-00,000,00(1   of   money   for   war   pur
poses, and so great was tholr confl*
'I-nee and courage that at tho ml of
the great war, whleh severely iaxed
their resources, they were a1 longer
and wealthier than they had li
th- beginning."
Canada's   natural store Is n
barely    touched.     From any I
wry lull in our progress, from
ever cause,   we can, therefor", recover   ourselves more quickly tban   did
the Motherland after her world strug
gle of n century ago* if our people
are of the same heart aud iudustry,
and we are confident they are. Courage in the fight for the Empire iB
not more necussary than courage in

Cloud of^ Mystery
London, Aug. 17.—While Japan hns
borrowed most of her military science
from Europe, alio taught the West,
in return, the enormous vnlue of secrecy in warfare. All the powers on*
gaged In tho European death grapple
havo learned that lesson. Reports
from Belgium say tbat the Gorman
prisoners have no regimental Insignia
on their uniforms and havo been instructed to refuse information as to
what regiments they are attached to.
in 1870, the English newspapers gave
full accounts of the German and
French regiments, *hore they were
and wbat regiments composed each
army. The commands and personal!
ties of all the leading generals wore
widely known.
Over all  these details,    the   armies

Western    BurOpO,       hnve     folded     a
shroud of inysterj concerning the
men who will play tho greatest parts
in the drama. The public knows almost nothing about the commander
in chief of thfl French army, General
Joseph •'. 0, Joflre, Joffre is not an
advertising general.  Even tho French
people know less about him than
about any other man who ever guided the military  machine.
The present disposition of the
combatant forces, thoir movements
and plans are confident matters of
guess work, Experts can only surmise that during the oppressive
darkness of the pnst fortnight of
mobilization and of suspense for
Europe, the four great armies of
Germany, France, Austria and Russia have been moving into positions,
which those who have theorized on
the subject have expected.
The great mobilization appears to
have proved one fact—that even the
German organization, when put to
the test under real war conditions,
could not move as fist as expected. The great swift battle on tbe
French frontier, which was due last
week, has not yet begun, bo far as is
known, or perhaps it may be beginning today.
The British army permits a few
war correspondents to take the field,
but under strict rules. The French
staff prohibits correspondents at the
front from usinp the telegraph. The
Russian army will have no correspondents. The German staff is
known to strongly disapprove o'

signifying its unconditional accept-
tunce of tho above advice uttered by
the imperial Japanese government
Japan will be compelled to take
such action aB she may deem necessary to md.'t tho situation."
Inspired utterances expreBB regret
at the inability to maintain neutrality, but say that Great Britain, the
ally cf Japan, is,compelled to defend
herself against the aggressiveness of
Germany. Moreover, it iB pointed
out that Germany is making preparations day and night at Kian-Chau,
where it is storing provisions, while
its warships are scouring the seas cW
eastern Asia to tho great detriment
of commerce, and that its converted
cruisers are seizing British merchant
vessels. Such actions, it iB argued,
are directly calculated to disturb the
peace of eastern Asia, and accordingly, after full and frank communication with Great Britain Japan has
found herself compelled to send an
ultimatum to Germany.
The Japanese war officer summoned all newspaper men at 1 o'clock
tbls afternoon in order that they
might receive instructions in regard
to the publication of news in the
event of a state of war coming into
The text df the Japanese ultimatum has created a profound impression, although it had been predicted
that Japan was making ready tu participate in thc war.
Count Okuma, the premier, and
Takaaki Kato, the foreign minister,
addressed meetings of merchants,
members of parliament and others,
and counseled a calm attack. They
declared that Japan had no ambition for territorial aggrandizement.
In reply to a question propounded
by a merchant, the foreign minister
unequivocally denied reports that the
United States bad interfered in any
way In the situation, and be added,
the United States was not likely to.
Later he said the American government would be fully informed aB to
the Japanese position. Copies o: thfi
Japanese ultimatum to Germany
were handed to the Chinese government and the foreign legations today.
Washington, Aug. 16.—The text of
the offensive and defensive alliance
between Japan and Great Britain,
under which Japan has now issued
an ultimatum to Germgny, became
available here today and Ib as follows:
"Agreement of alliance between the
united kingdom and Japan.
•'Signed at London July 13, 1911.
"The Government of Great Britain
and the Government of Japan, having ln view the important changes
which have taken place in the situation since the conclusion of the Anglo-Japanese agreement of the 12th
of August, 1905, and believing that a
revision of that agreement responding to such changes would contribute
to general stability and repose, have
agreed upon the following stipulations to replace the agreement above
mentioned, such stipulations having
tbe same object as the aaid agreement, namely:
"A—The consolidation and maintenance of the genesal peace in the
regions of eastern Asia and of India.
"B—The preservation of the common interests of all powers in China
by insuring the independence and integrity of the Chinese empire and the
principle of equal opportunities for
the commerce and industry of all nations in China.
"C—The maintenance of the territorial rights of the high contracting
parties In the regions of eastern Asia
and of India and of the defense of
their special Interests in thc eald regions.
"Article 1. It is agreed that whenever. In the opinion of either Great
Britain or Japan, any of the rights
and Interests referred to In the preamble of this agreement are in Jeopardy, the two governments will communicate with one another fully nnd
frai* ly and wlll consider hi common

wherever arising, on the part of an

rights or special Interests mentioned
In tho prearmble of this agreement,
the other high contracting pnrty will
at once como to thc assistance of Its
ally and will conduct with It.
Article 3. The high contracting
parties agree that neither of them
will, without consulting the nllrr
enter into separate arrangements
with another power to tlm prejudice
of tho objects described in tho preamble of this ngronmont.
Article 4. Should either blub ron
tracting party conclude a treaty of
general Arbitration with n tblrd power lt Is agreed thut nothing In Mi's
agreement shill ontnll upon such con-
trnctlng party nn obligation to go
to war with tho power with whom
such treaty of arbitration is In

"Article 5. The condition und^r
which armed assistance shall be afforded by either power to the circumstances mentioned in tbe present
agreement, and the means by whico
such assistance is to be mude available, will be arranged by the naval
and military authorities of the high
contracting parties, who will from
time to time consult one another fully and freely upon all questions of
mutual interest.
"Article G. The present agreement

text and the one at present in operation.
Washington, Aug. 10.—Germany's
colonies and dependencies in China
und the Pacific threatened by Japan's
ultimatum consist iu Kiau-Chau, a
protectorate in northeastern China on
the yellow sea; and in the Pacitic,
German New Guinea, composed of
Kaiser Wil holm'a Land, the Bismarck
archipelago, the Caroline islands, the
Palau islands, the Marianno Islands,
thc Marshall islands and the Samoan
islands of Savaii and Opolu.
These Pacific islands have an estimated area of 96,160 Bqtiare miles,
and a population of 357,800.
Kiau-Chau has an estimated area
of 200 square miles. This is exclusive of tbe bay, with an area of about
100 square milta, and the neutral
zone of about 2500 square miles, having a Population of 1,200,000. The es
timated population of-Kiau-Chau is
168,000, of which the whites number
3896, almost exluslvely Germans,
and including thc garrison on peace
Germany's Pacific possessions, thc
first of which was acquired in 1884
and the last in 1899, are administered by an imperial governor. Kaiser Wilhelm's land, on which sago,
copra and precious woods abound,
bas a population of about 700 white
men, virtually all Germans. In the
Bismarck archipelago, composed ot
eight principal islands, Hcriiertshohe,
tbe seat of government, is located.
The Solomon Islands are owned in
part by Germany, smaller ones to
the east of Bougarinvillc having been
transferred to Great Britain In 1889.
Tbe Caroline, Palau and Marianne,
the latter sometimes known as the
Ladronne islands, all form part of
thc German New Guinea protectorate. They were acquired from Spain
in 1899 for about $4,000,000. The
native population is 55,000, with
about 200 Germans.
The Marshall islands arc two
chains of lagoon islands, several uninhabited, and have been German
since 1885. In a population estimated at 15,000, lesB than 200 arc
European, nearly all German. The
chief export is phosphate.
The Samoan islands belonging to
Germany are Savaii and Opolu, with
an area of 1000 square miles. Tbey
arc paramount among Germany's Pacific possession for their strategic
Importance, and are fertile and well
watered. Apia, the principal port,
has regular steam communication
with New Zealand and Canada, a
wireless station has been erected and
others are under construction on other iBlands.
Germany's resources in thc far east
are confined in tbo main to the 5000
men In garrison at Kiau-Chau. These
have recently been augmented b,\ all
the German troops usually kept In
nnd near I'ekln and Tien Tsin under
International agreement witb other
powers, for the purpose of maintaining open communication witb tbe
seaboard. Thin latter German force
consists of 17 officers and 143 men,
all of whom have now been concen
trated with tho main force at Kiau-
Japan's resources aro (ar greater,
as har warshlpH and armies are all
concent rated in tbo orient.
Japan's naval stations In southern
Korea are within 860 miles of Klau-
Cliuu, nnd tbo eblef naval depots,
arsenals mid naval nnl military [bases
in Japan are within 800 miles of
Kinu-Chiiii. It. Is hardly more tban
a day's sail tor tlm ttoet, and transports convoyed by wnrshlps could

Among diplomatists the fact has
not escaped notice tbat Japan's ultimatum brings ber diplomat)) nn n
factor to be reckoned with when lbo

The Minstrel MaidB troupe who appeared at the Auditorium on Thursday played before an excellent attendance, the hnll being almost full. The
Maids were not ao good ns expocted
during the lirst part of the performance, but in the second they went
far beyond the expectations of the
audience. The dancing was of the
best and the violin playing of one of
the troupe brought forth the applause of the whole house. Thc troupe
can well be said to be the best that
hus appeared in thc Auditorium for
some time.

Dark  patches of  trouble came gathering round,
With a glimering hope between;
But   the    trouble   encompassed   this
sorrowful star,
And hope no more was seen.
But the   trouble will pass in   God's
good time,
Like clouds on a windy day;
And    the   sun    will rise in splendor
On the dawn of a better day.

study, led by Rev. Henderson of New
Westminster, taking for his topic
"The Social Message of the Sermon
on the Mount." Rev. Dr. Sinclair,
of Winnipeg, a man of large
sympathies, whose life in the Yukon
has added so much to his experiences, was full of his subjects, which
dralt with the leading problems of
the day.
Dr. Myers, Toronto, a specialist in
Sunday School work dealt with methods of good teaching and training
of the child.
The discussions were very enthusiastic.
Mrs. Myers each evening delighted
the srhool with her beautiful solos
and guitar nccompnniments.
Kvery moment was impioved, even

the school out on the green for physical training.
Afternoon! were given to wholesome recreation and no thc school

Death of the Pope
Rome, Aug. 20. Pope Tiux X. died
at l o'clock this morning, He had
been ill for several days, but alarm
ing symptoms did not develop until
Wednesday morning, Throughout
the day Doctors Marchlafava and
Amid devoted their utmost energies
to stimulating their patient and
keeping him alive. The cardinals
were notified of the pope's grave condition and some of them, who entered the sick room describe the impressive and heart-rending scenes, especially when the pontiff, rousing himself from time to time, spcl.e. Once
he said:
"In ancient times the pope by a
word might have stayed the slaughter, but now he is impotent."
The dying pope, in a moment of
lucidity, said:
"Now, I begin to think as the end
is approaching the Almighty, in His
inexhaustible goodness, wishes to
spare me the horrors Europe is undergoing."
"I shall not cease to implore God
to put a stop to thiB inhuman butchery," he declared. His physicians
had t0 deal with this mental condition as well as physical suffering.
Arrangements were made by which
Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal
secretary of state, would. render his
holiness a daily report on the war
situation. The pope desired to see
some way in which he might exert
his influence to check the bloodshed,
and he was more affected becnuse sny
action he might take seemed useless.
The pope's views on pJ?ace, embodied In an allocation delivered at
the consistory at which he created 13
cardinals last May, constituted such
a mmarkable document that the
Carnegie peace union, founded In February by Andrew Carnegie, with an
endowment of $2,000,000, decided to
begin its educational activities in behalf of disarmament and arbitration
among the clergy of the Roman Catholic church by sending to each of
the 23,000 priests of the tlnlttd
States and Canada a copy cf this
allocation. In It the pope referred
to "men ot distinction and force
planning schemes for preventing thc
calamity of revolutions and the
slaughters of war and for insuring
the blessing of peace."
"Today," he said, "peace or war
in society and the state does not depend so much on the rulers iv* upon
the multitudes. Deprived of the
light of truth revealed by God, »■
used to the discipline of Christ, what
wonder if the multitudes prey of blind
pnsslons, rush to the common rnin
instigated by the clover agitators
who seek nothing but their own advantage."

Germans Cannot Win
London, Aug. 17,—"1 have seen
this coining foi' a long time," imid
Sir Hiram Maxim, referring to tbe
European war. "Four great continental Powers have boon straining every ti'rve to see how large an army
tbey could raise and oqulp. They had
these armies and, like a hoy wl h a
plaything, thoy wanted to use llicm,
"It appears to me tlat the Kaiser
wnn anxioUB for war. He Wiih of
the opinion that he bad the strong
est army the WOl'ld bad ever known.
Ile deemed this a favorable time to
strike, as be believed Kngland was
no absorbed In the Irish troubl s
lhat she would not support ber
friends. Tbe Kaiser fully expected no
opposition would be offer od to a
large portion (,f hiH army marching
through Belgium in order to attack
"Now tbat Borvla has been unite
successful in keeping the Austrian*
out of her country, the colossus of
the east -Russia—will swoop down
upon Germany nnd Austria like tin
avalanche in about three weeks.
"French and Belgians are very
much alike; tbey have the same system of fortifications. A great deal
has been done in the last twenty
years to make the eastern frontier of
France impregnable. They hnve a
great variety of defensive works of
great strength; not only this, but the
French artillery is undoubtedly th:
best in the world.
"Austria has a very large army,
but the Austrians will have all they
can do and a great deal more to keep
tWa Russians out of their own country, to say nothing of keeping them
out of Germany.
"It will be neceBsary for Germany
to send a large force to the east to
aid Austria, and in all probability
the alliance will not laBt a great
deal longer than the war.
"The Englisn army, it is true, is
not very Urge, but England can certainly send 200,000 men to the front.
Httle Belgium can send a like number. If England is pressed she can
send fully 600,000 to the front. The
English are v^ry good, stubborn
fighters, and as matters stand I
should Bay the chances against Germany are fully ten to one. Nothing
but a very unfavorable mistake on
the part of the English and French
will enable the Germans to reach
"This particular war is not like the
war in South Africa or any other
uncivilized country. Troops can and
will be moved with great rapidity.
"Napoleon said that battleB were
won by quick marches. I opine that
this war will be of rather short duration. In regard to the sea, England
is supposed to have a force little
more than equal to two of the largest continental fleets.
"TMjre are no better Bea fighters in
the world than the English. If they
had to deal with Germany alone
there would be little chance but that
the German fleet would be wiped off
the sea, but when you consider the
French and Russian fleets are added,
I should say the Germans don't
stand one chance in a hundred.
Money is the great factor in war.
Leaving the United Stntes out of the
situation, England is thc richest
country in the world. France Ih second, Russia third and Germany
"France is extremely rich; her peoplo are quite as patriotic as any.
Tho war of 186fi between Russia and
Austria lasted only six weeks."
