GREAT SUCCESS
Excellent  Rendition cf
Programme
Ostend, Sept. 25.-A Zeppelin
airship today dropped three
bombs in this city. Not much
harm was done.
Bordeaux, Sept. 25.—It is officially stated that Gen. Stenger, I
commanding an infantry brigade
issued an order of which the fol-,
lowing is the translation: "Take
no prisoners; shoot all who fall j
into your power, singly or in |
groups; and despatch the wounded whether armed or not, as|Ger-
mans must leave no living French
men behind him."
Bordeaux, Sept. 25.—It is officially announced that the Germans have resumed the bombardment of the Rheims cathedral.
Perronne was captured by the
Allies and good progress has been
made on the Allies* left wing.
At the battlefront via Paris,
Sept. 25.—French and British
troops not only held their own,
but caused the strongly reinforced
German right wing to reel backwards near St. Quentin yesterday and today and imperilled the
German line of communication
towards the frontier of Belgium,
The German centre has been
weakened by the rush of troops
from that position to meet the
threatening movement of the
Allies on the German right wing.
Two strong forces were engaged
at close quarters today near St.
Quentin. Military authorities
refuse to permit disclosure of the
exact location of the fighting, but
it is generally known that the
battle now progressing is of prime
importance. Meanwhile at other
parts of the battle line which is
120 miles long, fighting continued
today in dogged fashion. The
commanders of the Allied forces
have found reasons for wonderful
precautions taken by the German
force against attack in a spy who
was discovered inside their lines
signalling to the Germans. He
was arrested and immediately
shot.
The British and French Navies
have annexed the Island of Lissa
in the Adriatic. The object of
this capture according to Italian
reports was to induce theAustrian
fleet to come out and accept battle^
The Australian navy also has been
busy again and has again added
another German possession to its
list of captures. This timo it is
Kaiser Wilhelm Land with the
portion of New Guinea, one of the
Emperor's most valuable colonies
in that part of the world.
German airships and areoplanes
have again been flying along the

COUNCIL MEETING
The city council held their reg-
the New England hotel, there
was a disturbance there. When
he arrived there the parties who
had caused the disturbance had
gone out. Mr. Walker said the
men had been there all afternoon
and had had a row amongst
themselves.
Mr. J. Walker was next called
and corroborated the statements
of the previous witness. The
men had several times been told
to behave themselves or get put.
He asked the mayor what charge
was laid against him.
The mayor said there was no
its talented musicians. The Symphony Orchestra of ten pieces
established their name of second
to none in this province, in the
able manner in which they rendered "Invercargill," "Bohemian
Girl," and "Sounds from England." The Gleemen, composed
of twelve voices, as usual always
good, sang "Comradesin Arms,"
and the "Soldiers Farewell,"
Miss Rushford, a child of 8 or 9
years of age, dressed in Highland
costume, danced the "Highland
Fling" and the "Irish Jig." in

COAL PREFERRED
Ca»e of Discrimination Against
Der Kaiser and the Owners
of the Jingle Pot.
Holding th,it the coal from thc
Jinple Pot mine, which is handled
by Messrs. Hanbnry & Co., is
worked mostly on German capital,
the board of school trustees, at
their meeting last night turned
down their tender for the supply
of coal for the coming season,
says the Vancouver Sun of Tuesday, Sept. 23rd, although they
were the lowest tenderers. Han-
bury's figure was $6.75 for lump
and $6.25 for No. 1 nut, while
the contract for 400 tons of lump
was let to Macdonald Marpole Co.
at $7 a ton. For 400 tons of No.
1 nut the contract was awarded
to McDowell Mouat Co. at *!?6.50.
Evans, Coleman & Evans were
also successful with their tender.
They will supply 400 tons of No.
1 nut at $6.50 per ton.
Trustee Stewart was anxious to
know why the contract was not
let to Messrs. Han bury & Co.,
their tender being the lowest. It
was explained to Trustee Stewart
that the mine from which Han-
bury & Co. get their coal is practically run on German capital,
and. while England is at war,
nothing German should be accepted by the board. '' Does the ]
coal come from Germany?" asked
Trustee Stewart. He was in-j
formed that this coal came from
the Jingle Pot mine, and that;
Germans played a very important
part in it.
Trustee Stewart retorted that
he knew a lot of British subjects
in Vancouver who are receiving
dividends from this mine, and;
saw no reason for turning down
the tender. The board, however
decided as above stated,

COMMISSIONERS ENQUIRY
enough.
Mr. McLean said people from
the outside seemed to make Cum
berland their drinking place, and
came here solely to get drunk.
From this out when a man was
charged with being drunk the
hotelman who served him last
would have his license cancelled.
The mayor asked Mr. Walker
if there was a room in the New
England Hotel kept for a certain
purpose, and on Sunday, between
8 and 10 o'clock a.m., was there
not a party in the said room the
worse for drink.
Mr. Walker said he met the
party near No. 7. He got no
drink in the hotel. There were
three sitting rooms in the hotel.
He never saw the party take any
liquor and they had none at his
bar. . i**^SS^»
The mayor asked if the man
was drunk.
Mr. Walker did not consider it
a fair question. The men came
in to settle about the payment of
the hire of an automobile. They
naturally went into the sitting
room. With a house containing
forty to fiftyjmen you could not
tell|what state any particular'one
might be in. ,..-.,.,.
The mayor said the present circumstance was merely a supposition. It was up to the hotelmen
in the town to avoid suspicion,
and they should do what they
could to keep order among their
customers and see to it that there
was as little trouble as possible.
Mr. MacDonald said the law
was very strict and they would
have to enforce it.
Mr. Harrison said his client did
not serve liquor to drunken men,
neither did his employees. An
ho'elkeeper cannot act as wet-
nurse to a grown man. The only
place for a man who did not know
when he had enough was the
lock-up. As regards arresting a
man, it was a matter of discretion.
He did not believe in wholesale
arresting. A man was supposed
to be arrested when there was
any question of his being found
when wanted.
Aid. Maxwell wished to ask
Commissioner McLean a question
but Mr. Harrison objected while
his client was on the carpet.
CommissioneV McLean considered there was no blame attached
to the New England hotel.
Commissioner MacDonald concurred.
The meeting thereupon closed.
