War Bulletins
Monday, August 24.
London, Aug. 28. The battle
of the Giants has begun in Belgium. The Germans aro trying
to work around the Allies' Hank,
while the French are trying the
same to the Germans in Alsace.
Almost all the engagements that
have gone before have been mere
reconnaissances. From the stand
point of the Allies the important
feature in Saturday's developments is a great battle which began in the morning on the N amur-
Charleroi line. This is being
fought on the position chosen by
the Allies. A German statement
says that in fighting between
Metz and Vosges the Germans
took 10,000 prisoners and 50 guns.
An official British statement explains that nothing resembling a
great battle had been fought previous to yesterday. From the
• Russian boundary conflicting reports come from both sides claim
ing success.
Paris. Aug. 22;—Official.—The
situation in Belgium is unchanged. The Germans are moving westward preceded by clouds
of cavalry. [There Lhave been
skirmishes near Ghent. On the
other side of the German army
the Belgian army is entrenched
at Antwerp. There has been
. lighting at Luneville, in Meurthe
et Moselle. The German attack
there has appeared weak. In the
past three days our losses have
been serious; that of the Germans equally so.
London, Aug. 23.-A great
battle beween the Germans on
one side and the French and British on the other began Saturday
■ morning, according to official announcement. The battle line extends from Namur to Charleroi.
a point 20 miles west of Namur.
Antwerp, Aug. 22. A British
and a German cavalry brigade
had a sharp fight today on the
battlefield of Waterloo. The
Germans retired.
Tokio, Aug. 28.- Japan has
declared war against  Germany.
Paris, Aug. 23.- A despatch
this afternoon from Rome says
the Emperor of Austria is dying,
and that Prince William of Wied
has fled from Albania.
London, Aug. 21, A Romedes
patch reports Emperor Franz
Joseph's death is expected at any
moment.
Paris, Aug. 23. Official. A
great battle is in progress along
a lino extending from Mons to the
1 frontier of Luxemburg. Our
troops in conjunction with the
British have assumed everywhere
the offensive. We are faced by
almost the whole German army,
both active and reserve. The
ground, especially on our right,
is wooded and difficult of passage.
The battle is likely to last several
days. The enormous strength of
the French and the great number
of forces involved make it impossible to follow step by step the
movements of our armies. We
must await the result of the lirst
phase of the combat. before we St. Petersburg, Aug. 23. - Offi-

London, Aug. 24.—The official
press bureau announced tonight
that Namur has fallen.
Milan, via Paris, Aug. 25.—A
despatch from Cattaro says all
the fortifications there have been
destroyed by the Allied fleet. The
Austrians did not have time before the attack to strew the Gulf
of Cattaro with mines.
London, Aug. 24. - An official
St. Petersburg despatch says;
Russia's two great armies are
now advancing over a front ex-
Jending seventy miles to a great
pitched battle which the Russian
commander-in-chief probably will
deign to call a victory, a word
hitherto scrupulously avoided.
The advance is spreading fanlike
into the heart of Prussia and
trampling all opposition. Many
engagements have been fought
and many cities taken, but the
Russian general considers them
mere skirmishes.
Pekin, Aug. 24.—Tsing Tail
and Kiau Chau are blockaded.
British, French and Russian war
vessels are taking part in the
movement. Up to the present
only British- regiments have
orders to cooperate with the Japs
but tlie French expect orders to
assist the British. No reliable
information has reached here yet
as to any Japanese landing on
Kiau Chau. The Japan-China
cable is cut.
London, Aug. 25.-Emperor
Franz Joseph is much worse; his
death is a question of a few
hours...
Undine, Italy, via Paris, Aug.
24.—It is reported that Austria
has abandoned the campaign
against Servia and will confine
her efforts to trying to hold back
the Russians who are beginning
to sweep across her northern
frontier.
London, 25th.—The total casualties to the British force in the
great battle were two thousand
men  kiiled  and   injured.
A Zeppelin was brought down
today over Antwerp and the entire crew killed or captured. She
she was struck by artillery fire
and sank through losing gas instead of bursting into flames.
It is said that 25,000 Germans
are surrounded at Courtray,
Belgium, and will have to surrender.
Brussels is now clear of Germans, who have gone further
west and north.
Paris, 25th. -A hot fight has
lasted all today near Charleroi
between the French end German
armies, and still continues,
Geneva, 25th. It is reported
that a part of the German garrison at Strasburg suffered an
appalling loss at Schirneck in an
encounter with the French troops
Out of 5,500 men the Germans
lost 4,700.
Seattle, Aug. 25.—The Japanese cruiser Idzuma was seen off
Cape Flattery today headed for
Esquimalt.
Rome, Aug. 25.— The participation of Italy in the war on the
side of the Allies is looked for at
any time, The massing of troops
by the Austrians on the Italian
frontier which has been discreetly carried on for the past two
weeks has in the past forty-eight
hours been rushed without any
pretence of covering up the operations. The Italians are clamoring for war and the greatest dip-
; lomatic pressure is being brought
lon Italy to cast in her lot with
the Allies.
Rome, Aug. 25. -The bombard
ment and destruction of the fortifications at Cattaro by the combined British and French fleets is
confirmed. At last reports the
commander of the city was parleying as to terms of surrender.
Ottawa, Aug. 25. — Thirty
thousand men are now at or on
their way to Valcartier. By the
middle of September this force
will be on transports bound for
Europe and their place at Valcartier will be"taken by another
force equally large to undergo
training for the front. This was
decided on today.
I London, Aug. 25.- While practically no news is coming from
the front the British people have
now settled down to the belief
that they are face to face with
an exhausting war and the determination to see it through to
ultimate victory has been made
stronger by the developments of
the past few days.
It seems certain now that Italy
will be on'the side of the Allies
within a few days and, while the
Allies have no doubt of the result without Italy, it will make
the campaign both shorter and
i easier were she to participate.
Wednesday, August 26.
Paris, Aug. 26. The War Office
has issued the following: The
commander-in-chief, requiring all
. available forces on the Meuse,
has ordered the abandonment of
' occupied territory. Muelhausen

London, Aug. 26.- Reuters declares Austrian government on
Tuesday, Aug. 25th, handed th-3

London. Aug. 25. —One of the
generally admitted results of the
great battle of Charleroi is that

brought to a speedy close are
considerably reduced. Two, or

believed to be the probable period.

Rome, 26.—The American consul has advised all Americans to

Thursday, August 27th.
London, Aug. 25.   The French
embassy in London tonight issutffl
the  following statement:    The
movement which was begun yesterday by order of the commander-in-chief was continued today,
It was confirmed that the Prussian
corps  of  guards   was   roughly
handled in the recent lighting.
They were attacked by Algerian
riflemen and in the hand-to-hand
1 lighting which ensued the Germans suffered heavy losses.   The
attacks   against   Nancy   have
failed.     The Russians arc resol-
, utely pushing forward their  ad-
j vance in Galicia and have routed
; two divisions of Austrian cavalry.
We can add some details to the
official news: We are assured that
an officer of Genera! Joll'rc's staff
brought a report at the close of
the day to the ministerial council.
For a short time our troops were
masters west of the Meuse.   the
' Germans giving way.  Then they
hurled the guards brigade against
our attack and despite  the  immense losses indicted  upon  the
, enemy our Algerians were forced
; to retire under orders from headquarters.     They   met   the   full
shock of the German army which
has thrown all  its forces  upon
i Belgium.   A battle is in progress
between   Marbuge,   Department
of the Nord, and Donon, Depart-
' ment of Doubs,   On it hangs the
; fate of France.     Operations in
! Alsace along the Rhine would
itake away troops  upon  which
(might depend victory.     It is necessary  to withdraw  all from
j Alsace temporarily to ensure its
i final delivery, West of the Meuse,
on  orders  issued  Sunday,   the
troops which are to remain on the
j covering line to take up the de-
'[ fensive are massed as follows:
| The French and British troops
occupy  a  front   position   near'
Givet, which they gained after
hard lighting.   They are holding
the Germans and sharply checking their attacks.    East of the
Meuse our troops have regained
their original position commanding the roads in the forest of
Ardennes.    To the right we assumed the offensive, driving hack
the enemy vigorously, but Joffer
stopped the pursuit so as to re-'
establish his front along the line
decided upon Sunday.     In  Lorraine the Austrians and Germans
have begun a combined attack,
one end  starting  from   Grand
Couronne de Nancy and theother
from south of  Lnneville.     The
engagement which began yesterday  continues at  the time of
i writing.    The sound of cannonading is not heard at Nancy as il
was yesterday.
Paris, Aug.  '£>.   The German
] Emperor's uncle, General Prince
Adelbert, was killed on  Sunday.
In the north detachments of Ger-
'man cavalry which appeared on
Sunday near Lille were observed
; yesterday near Doux.   This cav-
; airy cannot advance much further
j without the risk of falling  into j
, the Allies' lines.
London, 3.35 a.m., Aug. 27,—
The Daily Mail's Paris correspondent says: The Germans, it is
now believed, are attacking the
Allies from the southern Belgian
frontier. Cavalry raids arc fre-'
quent around Lille. Wounded
Germans say their officers' orders
are to advance at any cost, even
to forfeit, if necessary, 50 per
cent of the army to gain a victory.
The Germans made six successive:
attempts on the British troops in
an effort to cut their lines of
communication, but were unsuccessful.

WAR BULLETINS
London, 26.—Messages from a
war correspondent at Ostend give
particulars of a battle now being
fought on which the fate of
Europe may hang. This battle,
called the "Great Battle" in the
despatch which states that the
British were at their posts at 3
a.m. Monday. Suddenly eight
German aeroplanes came into
sight and a moment later a (lock
of British aircraft rose from the
ground and offered battle in the
air. The Germans closed their
ranks and appeared as if they
would offer resistance, then suddenly turned and fled pursued by
the British birdmen, who outnumbered the Germans greatly.
Immediately after the artillery
opened and th« infantry moved
forward. Sunrise mingled with
the glow of burning forests and
the flashes of the big guns. The
battle continued all day Monday
and Tuesday, and still continues,
and may last for several days
It is in progress along the whole
Belgian, British and French front,
and is a series of battles linked
together and forming one great
battle. It appears certain that'
1 the Germans have brought every
available man to the front, and
are not leaving troops behind to
protect their lines of communication, and unless they can force
their way through the Allies'
formation they invite disaster to
their entire army. Up till the
time the despatch was written at
Ostend the Germans had failed
to make any advance against the
positions of the Allies.
Seattle, Aug. 26.-At 6.45 this
morning the C. P. R. steamer
Princess Victoria collided with
the American steamer Admiral
Sampson, a passenger boat which
runs between Seattle and Alaska.
The Admiral Sampson sank in
about five minutes after being
struck by the Princess Victoria.
It is reported that seventeen were
! drowned. She was carrying 56
passengers and a crew of 65. The
accident occurred about twenty
i miles from Seattle. The Princess
Victoria was not badly damaged
and proceeded to Seattle with
the Admiral Sampson's passengers and crew.
Of the passengers two were
lost and out of the crew of 65
fifteen were lost, including the
captain and chief engineer.
London, Aug. 26.—Although
the German army captured the
city of Namur it is now known
that six out of eight of the forts
are still held by the Belgians.
The Russian advance is continu-.
ing unabated by an opposition
which Germany has offered. The
"ight wing is invading, the left
wing entering Galicia, and in the
centre the main army is marching in terrible force on rosen.
Near Osterod, east Prussia, the
Germans made a stand, but they
were overwhelmed and in their
flight left 100 pieces of artillery.
On Monday it is reported the
Russians reached Marienbad, 25
miles from Dantzig.
London.. 27th. - The Kaiser
Wilhelm Der Grosse has been
sunk off the West Coast ofAfrica
by the British Cruiser Highflyer.
The Kaiser Wilhelm had been
fitted up as an armoured cruiser
and was being used to relay
wireless messages from Germany
to America.
London, 26th.—The Belgians
have retaken Maline and drove
the Germans back on Verveville.
The entire centre of the Allies
position advanced today driving:
the Germans back.
