The Place of  Meeting  is  Not Known
Paris, August Hth—The Havas agency announces that Field Marshall Sir John
French,  the  Commander-in-Chief of the English field army, joined General
Joseph Joffre, the French Commander-in-Chief at headquarters today.
The locality is not mentioned in the message.
San Francisco, Aug. 14.—Thfl Oarman cruisers Lelpsig nntl Nurnberg
were both headed north, steaming
at full aiieed'when last seen north ol
San Francisco bay, according to
statements publiBhted here to.'ay.
Tbe Lelpsig waa passed yesterday
by the liner Queen 130 miles nortb
of San Francisco, in the forenoon,
northbound and mali.ng 20 knots,
according to the Queen's captain.
He Baid he tried to speak the cruiser, but all her commander would do
in response to a wireless call was to
boist the German flag.
The Nurnberg was reported to have
boen passed 1M> miles north of the
Point Reyes, which lies just north
of San Francisco bay, at 4'15 yesterday after noon. She, too, was
making speed  northward.
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 14.—In view
of a report from San Francisco that
thc Liepzig, and perhaps the Nurnberg, are bound north, possibly to
make an assault on Vancouver or
Victoria or to menace British shipping off Cape Flattery, a correspondent of the Associated Press applied
for information to the naval authorities at Esquimau regarding the
ships at that station.
The reply was a request from the
naval authorities not to publish
anything about the proposed move-
mr-nta ,-,. Canadian ships. It was officially stated that the Algerine, the
last of the thfae vessels coming from
the south, is quite safe. The Rainbow and the Shearwater arrived at
Esquimalt yesterday.
New and powerful guns have been
installed at points which command
the approaches to Victoria and Vancouver and an attatf. by German
vsssels ia not feared. Some of the
new guns carry 10 miles.
The new guns art believed to constitute an absolute protection for
Victoria city. To pass Victoria and
keep out of the range uf the Esquimau guns the German cruisers would
have to keep close to the American
shores of the strait of Juan de Fuca,
and it is believed here that American
warshipa are likely to be on hand to
see that th? Germans keep well outside the three-mile limit if tb;y try
to pass Victoria and come on to
British Columbia pzople believe
that a Japanese warship which lrft

"At various points along the

have taken more than 1500 prisoners. ''
London, Aug. 14, 12.45 p. nu—A
■dispatch from Brussels to Router's
agency says that a battle near Kg
hozee, north of Namur, which occurred yesterday at Noviile Taviere, on
the Namur-Tirelemont railroad line,
was keenly contested.
The Germans, according to tho
dispatch, were most cavalrymen.
They were surprised by the Belgians
and sustained sever casualties. Eventually they fell hack hurriedly on
Muy, between Namur and Liege.

Germany's Campaign
Germany's plan of campaign
against France is thc result of years
of preparation. Thc war has only
been a week in progress, yet it is possible to gain some definite idea of
what tho Kaiser's legions hope to accomplish. I'he rapicity wit.li which
troops were movfed up for thc attack

The German troops nre marching
on a front stretching from Trond to

position to the right of Hasselt.
Formidable defensive works have
been erected by the Belgians around
Namur. To obviate nny pretext for
reprisal on the part of the Germans
all thc inhabitants of Namur are being disarmed.
London, 3.56 p. nu, Aug. 14.—A dispatch from Brussels to Hooter's agency says the following official announcement wns issued nt noon today;
"The Germans are planning anew

like the preceding ones.

Last January, after five years' labor, tiie Germany Government completed the building of a railway from
Malniedy to Htayclot, in Belgium.
Why such an undertaking was sane
tioned by the Belgium Government if
unevplainable. It cnn never pny any
dividends. There is scarcely any traffic between the two towns. An article
dealing with this railway appeared in
the London Graphic in January last,
and we will reproduce a portion of
it as follows:
If we want to know why German:,
built this line and has shown herself
so persistent in coercing Belgium in
the matter, we must turn our attention to tbe new position that has
heen created throughout the whole nf
the frontier region or which Malmady
is one nf the advanced points. Until
a comparatively recent ported the only railway was a single-railed line
from Aix-la-Chepelle to St. Vith, and
this connected Weismes wilh a separate branch line, terminating at
Malmedy. The trains were few and
slow, the stations unimportant, and
the line itself Was constructed with
nu sye to light traffic only. In 1906
work was suddenly begun on the doubling and strengthening of thiB Jlne,
so as to make it equul to the strain
of many express trains. Besides th.it.
numerous sidinga for the entraining
and detraining of troops were nddxl
at all the stations a'.onz thc line,
and a new and vast station and sidings were laid out, for no obvious
reason, at a place called Weywcrtz.
As these wor'*n were approaching
completion tbe German Government
brought forward the Stavelot project
and forthwith b'gnn work on thc
Malmedy section without waiting for
the Belgians to commence on their
end. It must be noted that the connecting link, the Light railway from
Weismes to Malmedy, was left, and
remains, unimproved, nnd this is
probnbly due to tbe intention of making a betttf alignment, or seeking i
preferable route. In 1S12 the reason
for the construction of the new station at Weywcrtz was suddenly revealed. Secretly, and at a cost of
lii,000,000 thc Germans had made a
magnificent double-railed line across
the Northern Eiffel, connected the
Aix-St. Vith line with the quadruple-
railed (for the greater part) line from
Bonn to Treves.
'ihe construction ol this, which wus
discovered ouly u very suoit time bo-
lore it was completed, although it
touii two years to bund, is oue o.
tbe     great -.ii.    achievements   among | a
Liege, although reports say that the
actual number engaged during the j
last week has been only 120,000. The
main engagement in the German advance through Belgium seems dentin
ed to he fought at Namur, as presumably, the Germans, if successful
in their invasion, will follow the valley of the Mouse, with the purpose of
uniting with another German force
which has Invaded Luxemburg at
some point on the French frontier.
If it is true that the Germans have
captured Liege, stubborn though the
resistance offered them hns been,
their progress will be stopped at Namur. British and French troops are
[touring into Belgium, and will soon
be in a position to unite with the
Belgian forces, when it is only a question of time before tbe invaders are
driven out of thc country.

During the week news from the seat
ol war has been of a very vague nature. Bulletins have appeared in the
daily papers purporting to Come from
reliable sources only to be contradicted in the next issue. As we are
to eath«r from the despatches now
arriving the troops of the various
European nations arc massing together and feinting for positions
along their fronts; what will be tbe
outcome it is impossible to
conjecture. Home of the things that
will be contained in the lirst authentic   news   that    arrives will be   the
great slaughter of the   army,
f.'arful scenes were enacted, heroism
was shown as never before hy all
the troops engaged, and the number
of wounded is Impossible to estimate
at the time of writing.

There are a lot uf people who have
held their hands up In horror at the
result of the lirst skirmish that took
place between the German troopB and
the Bolglans. it should bo needless
to have to inform thoso people that
the part of tbo war Just exhibited on
the battlefields around Liege will be
considered u mer> nothing when the
heavier fighting takes place. It is
impossible to Imagine how some people get the idea into their heads that
thy war will soon be over because a
few men have been killed. The number of killed and wounded up to the
present time will not cover 50,000 if
both conflicting armies' losses are
counted, and when thn number of the
armies reach in to the millions it is
(Vbsolutely certain that the losses sustained aro taken very little count of
excepting in ao far as the moral effect lt will have on the rest of the

have passed by. In the meantime
manv lessons will have been taught
and we venture to think the most vital of all will be not that armed
camps or large battleships will be the
chief factors for universal peace
among the nations, but rather it will
be the lesser the armament curried
the greater power will the pen have

Present War was
Prophecied in 1903
Famous Military Correspondent
outlined details of war with
Germany 11  years ago
astounding prophecy
Reprinted from "The Ci
Mleven vara ago, "Ublquo," the famous military OOfTOHponriciH of The
Times, published a book whleh attracted wiih attention n Kngland.
The book, which was called "Modern
Warfare,"   dealt chief].,  wltb an im
aginary campaign which was carried
on as a result of war between the
British Empire end Germany. The
steps leading up to the war were outlined and the whole campaign waB
described in detail, ending with the
ultimate unconditional surrender of
the German nation to the terms of
Great Urita;n. The early chapers of
this book, read in the light of recent events, form the most astound-
ly accurate prophecy of wbat has actually taken place. "Ubhiue*: supposes that the war will take place
in 1905, and in this he is, of course,
some years astray, but he places
General (now Field Marshal) French
at the head of the English expeditionary force and Earl Kitchener aa
Secretary of War, The steps whleh
led up to the war are outlined In the
Identical manner ln which they havo
actually occurred, I ortlods of this
remarkable prophecy ure here repr i
ducod, not only because thay foreshadow what has actually occurred
in the last lew days, but because
they contain Interesting details o!
the steps which must be taken
when such a force as Kngland is now
sending to Belgium taken the tleld:
To mobilise means to prepare an
army for fighting by bringing it up
io war strongth in men and horsOB,
and providing it with ammunition
nnd stores.
This is a very Important piece of
work; for during peace time the dll
ferent parts of an army are only
kept at "peace strength," which is,
as a rule, far belowu the strength at
which it should embark for activ
service. A battery of field artillery,
for example, requires from thirty to
fifty additional men, and from elgh
ty to 100 horses, to bring it up to
"war strength." Borne parts of an
army, in fact, do not exist at all in
peacl time, aB, for instance, the
'ammunition columns," which carry
an anm's spare ammunition.
In order to make mobilization as
rapid as possible, and to prevent
any hitch occurring, very careful
plans are madi in peace time. To
show you how these plans are carried out, I will describe tbe way in
which one of the infantry battalions
of the 1st Army Corps mobilizes.
The method adopted differs slightly
from that in which cavalry, artillery
and other branches of the army mobilize, but in its main points it is
much the same.
I will take aB an cample the 2nd
Lincoln Regiment, which means the
:!nd Battalion of the Lincolnshire Regiment, the old 10th Foot. The battalion is stationed at Aldershot when
war is declared against Germany.
It Ib the morning of this eventful
July 1. The general commanding the
3rd Division, to which the Lincolns
belong, has just come in from an
early, before-break fast ride, and is
dismounting at his doorstep, when a
telegram is handed to him containing the word "mobilize." In five
minutes the general's telephone is
hard at work, and orderlies are dashing out with otticial blue envelopes.
The machinery for mobilizing the 3rd
Division—carefully oiled and kept ln
order during peace time—has been
set in motion.
The Lincolns have been out drill
ing on a bron,I stretch of green turf
near their barracks, and are return
ing home. As tbe companies form up
on the parade-ground, an orderly
hands the colonel one of those blue
envelopes which we have just Been
leave the general's office.
One subaltern remarks to another.
"The colonel's got a 'blue pill' "—
this is the unofficial name for official documents in the army—"and
lookB awfully pleased over it. Wonder what it is?"
They, soon know. The battalion is
to mobilize. The long-expected European war has come at last. He Is
going to "see service!"
There is a big day's work before
the colonel and his staff. The first
thing to do is to telegraph to two
of the ofllcers who are on leave, and
to several men on furlough, to rejoin at once. Then cvftry one in the
battalion is inspected by a medical
officer, to seo If he Is fit for active
service. When this is dono, the col
onel telegraphs to the War Office,
stating the numbor of men he requires to bring thc Lincolns up to
war strength.
In pence time the full strength of a
battalion Is only Ml of all ran'is,
nnd this ls generally reduced hy sick
ness and other causes, so that from
230 to 250 men are required to bring
it up to its war strength of 1,120
officers and men. These nre made up
Of reservists—that is, men who have
enlisted for twelvo yenrs, and after
serving for seven with tbe battalion
have gone into the reserve for the remaining live.
An officer whose duty It is to pay
these reservists koeps their addressee,
and when he receives the order to
mobillle, he sends each man a letter
telling him where to go, a postal order for three shllllns, nnd a "traveling warrant." This last Is a prated
piece of paper, by presenting whleh
nt a rnllway booking office a sol
dler obtains a frai ticket. The railway company afterwards receivers the
money from the Oovernment.
On receipt of these documents, tho
reservists hasten to the regimental
depot of the Lincolns, which   In   at

where all the recruits who enlist in
the regiment are trained hefore thej
are sent to join the ranks as train*.*
soldiers. For two or three days nfter mobilization is ordered, the reservists continue to arrive from all
parts of the kingdom. As each man
reports himself, the officer in command of tho depot baa him medically Inspected, and then gives him Mb
arms, uniform, belts, etc.
As soon as about tlfty men have
been collected, thoy are sent from
the depot to the battalion at Aldor-
Bhot, Here they go through some
drill, and from live days to a week
after the order for mobilization is
given, the Lincolns are ready for service.
There nre, however, certain parts of
an army, which require longer than
a waek tti mobilize -for Instance, the
ammunition columns, ammunition
park, field hospitals, bearor com-
rallies, ete. The wagons, harness,
arms and equipment of all these are
kept ready lu time of peace at head

On the day tollowlng the declaration of war, General French, commanding the 1st Army Corps, embarks with his stntT on n fast cruiser
for Ostend. Before leaving London,
he has a long interview with the commander-in-chief and the Secretary of
State for War. At this interview he
is given the latest official news from
Brussels. ThiB is dat?d midday on
July 2, and reports that the Germans have arrived opposite Liege.
The Belgians, who are greatly outnumbered, have assembled chitfly at
Louvain, Charleroi, Liege and Namur. It is privately intimated, however, that no vory serious resistance
can be offered to tbe enemy at these
places, except at Namur.
It iB decided that the best place for
the British army to disembark is Ostend. By landing at Ostend, and
along the coast on each side of it,
the army has three lines of railway
by which to advance, all hading
straight through Brussels towards
the enemy. If the army were to disembark at Antwerp, which at first
sight seems the best place, owing to
Its numerous wharves and docks, it
would flrst have to crawl up tlu
mouth of the Schelde, then, th'.1 line
by which it would afterwards have
to advance from Antwerp to Brussels
Is exposed to an attack by thc Gc.
mane from the east. They would, in
fact, be in a good position for cutting the British "line of commun'c i
tions." 80 Antwerp, in Bpite of Its
docks and wharves, is not chosen as
tbe landing place. By disembarking
at Blenkenberghe, Ostend and Nieu-
pont Bains, which lie about ten
miles apart, and by advancing simultaneously along the three separate
lines which run to Brussels, the nrrny
will be able to assemble there in a
third of the time it would take if it
landed at Ostend only. So these
three places are chosen for landing
the BritlBh force.
On General French's arrival at Ostend, he proceeds straight to Brussels, arriving there early in the
morning of July 3, ten hours after
leaving London. At 9 o'clock he hns
an interview with the Belgian Minister of War, at which the following
arrangements are made.
The thrfce lines of railway from
Blankcnbcrghe, Ostend and Nlcuport
arc placed entirely at the disposal of
tbe British. Sufficient trains for
bringing tho army up rapidly are to
bo assembled at all throe places. The
centre railway Is selected as the British "line of communication," along
which all tho supplies and ammunition of the army will bo forwarded
direct from England. Thc Belgian
Ministor of Wnr proinlsoH to mass
troops nt Nivolles nnd llrussels for
guarding this lino. Lastly, the British commissariat department is authorized to draw supplies of food from
the country wost of BrusselH.
On July 4, the British India stenmer Vlruwn, escorted by two second-
class cruiser*, arrives at Ostend with
the general who Is In command of
the "line of communications," and n
strong advanced party for making
preparation-; for the disembarking
and tho subsequent supply of the
British army.
A railway compan j of the Royal
Engineers takes charge of the mil-
ways whleh have been placed at tiio
disposal or the BritlBh. The Belgian
engine-drivers, guards, etc., are still
employed; but tho sappers superintend the general working of the line,
draw up fresh tlmO-tablCB, and make
vory careful preparations for Bonding
on the army when It arrives with the
least possible delay.   As the   engines
ami carriages sent by Mio Belgian
Govornmont arrive, thoy are made Up

made largo enough to curry the different parts of the army corps, A
battalion, for example, requires two

Tht! Army ordnance Corps takes a

clothes, cooking utensils, and medicine^—in fact, everything that an ar
my wants, except food.
The Army Service C0rps (the A. 8.
C.) prepares several warehoused in
the docks for receiving food supplies
from Kngland. As most of the food,
however, is to be obtained from the
country, a company of the A. B. C
goes to Ghent, where it makes an
enormous "supply depot" in some
large buildings just outside the town
und near the railway. Contracts are
made with (armors and otber people
for sending in food to this depot and
by the time the army lands in Belgium enough flour, cattle, sheep and
hay have been collected to feed the
troops for a week. Further arrangements are made for keeping the depot constantly supplied with theBe
things, and also with fresh vegetables
so that the A. S. C. can forward
them to the army by rail.

Accidental Shooting
What niiglit have proved a fatal
accident toi»; place last night when
J, Taylor tried to shoot a hawk.
It appears that a hawk was'up in
i tree and Mr. Taylor got his gun
and tried to shoot it, instead of
which the shot passed through a
window in Mrs, Chambers' residence
and struck Mrs. W. Matthews on the
side of ber head. Medical aid was
at once summoned and fortunately it
was found that no serious results
were to be expected. After an anx-
ous night we are informed that she
is progresping  favorably.
