Vancouver speakers at the patriotic
meeting held  last Sunday afternoon
in the McNeely Hail.    Mr. Chas. Tisdall, M.P.P.,  of Vancouver,  was one
of the speakers and  told  in  hls address  of   the   war   relief   fund   work
|being done  in  that    city  and  urged
|that 'the   local   residents     continue
ialong similiar lines.
.Mayor Baxter, of Vancouver, also
'addressed the meeting dealing with
|the work being done by Vancouver
citizens and he was followed by-
speeches from Mr. McVety, president of the Vancouver Trades and
Labor Council, and Mrs. Rose, of the
Local Council of Women, Vancouver,
who cited cases and examples that
had been found in tbat city. Mr.
Frank MacKenzle, M. P. P., for Delta, spoke along the lines of the former speakers. It was announced
that the G. N. R. would ship conlri-
butions of produce from the Delta
to the Vancouver fund free of
charge, a car being sent once a week
or as the occasion warranted.
During the afternoon musical selections were rendered by the Howard Bros., including "O Canada," and
"The Maple Leaf," but owing to tho
shortness of the time given their
programme was necessarily curtailed.
Mr. E. L. Berry ably sang "Rule
Britannia" and " Hearts of Oak,"
while Mrs. W. J. Lanning sang
"Home, Sweet Home."

At   the   regular   Delta  Board  ot
Trade meeting held on Monday eve-
ining    in    the    municipal   hall,   with
j President   W.   A.   Kirkland    in    the
chair, a resolution was passed resorn-
mending     the     changing     of     the
schedule   of   the   Helen   M.   Scanlon
from the fifteenth of October to the
' fifteenth   of   March.       The   recom-
Imendation    asks    that   on   Sudnayi
j during the time mentioned the ferry
| should drop the 3 o'clock and the 7
j o'clock runs.
The question of fire protection
: for I.adner was discussed and Mr.
|C. O. Lambert was instructed to se-
jcure particulars regarding the cost
��� of hose and carriers and to bring In
I a report at the next meeting. Lad-
|ner is at present without adequate
|protection in case of fire, although
i having the standpipes, but without
ihose and carriers.
Mr. D. B. Grant made the suggestion that the Helen M. Scanlon could
be fitted up similar to the Senator
Jansen and used as a fire boat when
the occasion required. This matter
was laid over until Mr. Lambert reports.
A resolution was passed, proposed
by Mr. D. A. McKee and seconded
by Mr. E. L. Berry, that a petition
be presented to the Ottawa government asking for a quarantine station to be established at the boundary line nt Point Roberts. This
would do away with the excessive
cost necessitated at present by having the quarantine station situated
at White Rock and New Westminster.

GHENT, Sept. 15.���The vanguard
of the fleeing German armies has
now recrossed the Belgian frontier.
It is composed of the proud, formidable host which a short fortnight
ago at Mons antl everywhere swept
from its conquering path the thin
Britisli line which barred its route
toward the French capital.
Owing to the recrudesence of Belgian activities, the position of the
slender garrison holding Brussels
has become one of extreme peril. Important Belgian forces appeared
north and east of Brussels after the
burning of Termonde. The modern
Huns of the German Kaiser retreated upon Alost, which commands the
road northwest of Brussels. Their
occupation of this town is now seriously menaced by the powerful Belgian concentration in the neighborhood.
It is quite possible that the enemy
will shortly nnd Brussels untenable

PARIS, Sept. 15.���The French official statement issued last night
says that French troops have reoc-

"The statement is as follows: "On
our left wing we have everywhere
caught up wllh the rear guards and
even the main body of the enemy.
Our troops have re-entered Amiens-,
abandoned by the German troops.
The enemy appears to be making a

Lines Are Threatened.
LONDON, Sept. 15.���Except for
the army which has been attacking
Verdun, the German forces in France
have fallen back all along the line,
according to the French official report,   issued   yesterday   afternoon.
The Allies are pusning their ad-
vantage and doing their utmost to
turn the retreat into a disaster by a
stern pursuit on, perhaps, the broadest scale yet known in war. On the
right they are in a good position to
continue the offensive, if the men
and horses are not too ured for further effort. They are based on a
strong line running from the Marne
to the fortresses, through the hilly
country south of Argonne.
While the Allies' left, composed
largely of fresh troops with a heavy
force of cavalry under General Pan,

Generals von (Cluck aud von Buelow
toward Ardennes and Luxemburg,
General Pau's army, by a few more
marches by way of La Fere and
l.aon, might cut communications between tlie retiring Germans and Belgium.
The British, who yesterday took
nearly all the crossings on the River
Aisne and captured many prisoners,
are now north of that river and are
pushing the attack that would assist
in forcing the Germans to evacuate
Hheims. The centre, somewhere between Chalons and Rhelms, is making an effort to recapture the latter
city, which would b-_ one of the most
popular victories that could be announced to Frenchmen.
Should these movements be crowned with success and Laon and
Rhelms again fall into the hands of
Allies, the Germans would have only
one line of communication with Germany, through Rethel���and even
that might be cut.
General von KItick, however, is
