LONDON, Oct. 14.���"A fierce battle is proceeding in the triangle of
Dixmude, Ypres and Dunkirk," says
the "Times" correspondent at Ostend, telegraphing Monday.
"General von Kluck's right is
making a determined effort to cut
through the allies' lines, but thus
far is has been frustrated."
The following dispatch dated
Monday has been received by the
Central News from Ostend: "It ls
reported that a heavy engagement
is in progress today near Thorout
(a Belgian town 12 miles southwest
of Bruges). The operations around
Ghent have opened favorably for ihe
allies. The Germans asked for an
armistice to enable them to bury
their dead, but the request was refused.
"Advancing confidently against
what they imagined to be the remnants of a retreating Belgian army,
a German column was ambushed by
a force south of Ghent. The German soldiers were mowed down tn
swaths and a bayonet charge completed their rout. Some 600 dead
were left on the field while the allies' losses were practically nothing.
The Germans retired precipitately
on Alost."
Hold Strong Positions.
"The German positions In Belgium are equal to those on the
Aisne," says a Central News despatch from Ostend. "In addition
to Antwerp, they have prepared reinforced concrete work heavily
mounted with guns, extending from
a point east of Louvain to a place
north of Vilvorde, on through Alost
and thence south tp a point southeast of Brussels.

Preparations for Sending More Canadians to the Front Are
Under Way.
OTTAWA, Oct. 14.���Preparations
for the sending of Canada's second
contingent to the front are proceeding rapidly. Supplies, clothing,
boots, war material, etc., have for
the most part all been ordered and
are being got ready
No suggestion has yet been received from the war office as to the
composition of the force and none is
expected until Colonel Hughes has
consulted with the imperial authorities. However, that is more or less
a detail. The main matter is the
local arrangements for mobilization
and supplies, and these have been
attended to.

and equipment bave been removed
and most of these arc now at headquarters in Ottawa.

Supreme   Court   Opens   nt   Ottawa
With Chief Just-lee Fitz-
pati'ick Presiidng.
OTTAWA, Oct. 14.���The Supreme
Court opened it3 autumn sitting
yesterday afternoon, Chief Justice
Fitzpatrick presiding. Before proceeding with the hearing of appeals,
judgments were given in a number
of cases, including the following:
Robertson vs. Canadian Automobile Bus Company, re argument ordered upon the question of status
of appellants.
St. Charles vs. Freedman, appeal
dismissed with costs.
The first case on the roll of appeals was then taken"- up, being an
appeal from the Court of Appeals
of British Columbia in the case of
Morgan vs. Dominion Permanent
Loan Company. In the action the
company sued Caroline Morgan and
l.er husband to recover the amount
of a loan and Interest and damages,
claiming $3000 on the ground that
the appellant and her husband
lrndulently conspired to obtain the
loan from the Dominion Building &
Loan Company to which the present
resoondent succeeded, hy alleged
misrepresentation to the value of
lands near Nanaimo.
It was further alleged that misrepresentation was made in regard
to there being buildings on the land.
After the loan* was made and repayment fell due the company brought
suit claiming that misrepresentation
had been made in regard to the
value of the property which turned
out to bo vacant land.
At the trial Mr. Justice Gregory
dismissed the action against both de-*
fendahts. On appeal the Court of
Appeal upheld this judgment in regard to Mrs. Morgan, but reversed
it against Mr. Morgan. They entered judgment against him on the
ground that he had participated ln
the frauds which led to the advance
being made by the plaintiff company. It, is agaii.st this judgment
that Morgan is now appealing. His
counsel argue that the evidence does
not support the presumption that he
participated in the alleged fraud.

here, and managed by local people,
an alfalfa mill, the first in British
Columbia, is now in successful operation. The project is considered
hy Okanagan farmers to <be an exceedingly promising one. Alfalfa
meal, (he advantages of which, particularly with respect lo poultry
farming, are just beginning to be
realized, is imported into British Columbia and Western Canada in large
quantities. Thus the industry starts
with a big market.
The production of alfalfa this year
was large���some farmers are now removing a third crop, averaging over
two tons to the acre���and the market for hay provided by the mill
comes as a welcome aid to the growers. The difference between the
price of alfalfa hay and alfalfa meal,
so pronounced in the past, will not
dwindle. Alfalfa flourishes and is
grown in the Northern Okanagan,
probably as in no other district in

NEW YORK, Oct. 14.���Chevalier
von Rappard, minister from The
Netherlands to the United States,
has announced that a way probably

to send away the British soldiers
who were driven across tbe Belgian
frontier Into Holland after the fall
uf   Antwerp.
As to how this might oe accomplished, (he minister did not attempt
to say. He added, however, that the
detachment of Germans who entered
Dutch territory unawares recently
were still interned.
How to provide food for the refugees now in Holland was an item
of much concern to his government.

The outbreak of the war ln Europe and the consequent demand
which is naturally to be expected
for increased exports of meats, finds
Canada in a very much denuded condition as regards live stock, states
a bulletin issued by the Commission
of Conservation.
As a result of the removal of the
American tariff on cattle a heavy
export trade developed to the south.
In some districts in Eastern Canada
nearly everything has been shipped
out of the country, except dairy
cows. This export trade, together
with many farmers selling their
��� calves for veal, can have but one
result in Canada, viz., a greater
scarcity of meat than at present
exists, even in a normal market.
The meat Industry in Canada
should not be allowed to dwindle���
rather, tl.e production of bogs, sheep
and cattle on Canadian farms should
be greatly increased. To obtain
this increase does not mean tbat
farmers shouta devote their whole
attention to live stock. The majority of farmers will admit that
with very little extra effort and expense they could increase by several
head the live stock on their
farms without in any way Interfering witb their present system of
From reports to the Commission
of Conservation, present conditions
indicate a world-wide scarcity of
live stock, with likelihood of an
overcrowded market for many years
to come. The opportunity for Ca-
i adian farmers is therefore apparent. To take advantage of this,
farmers should save their heifer
calves to produce more cattle, while
the others may be turned off, not
as veal but as beef.
Expert stockmen advise that there
are good times ahead for those raising sheep. The high price of mutton and of wool and the comparative ease with which a flock of sheep
may be sustained upon land which
is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should suggest a great Increase
in the number of sheep raised by
Canadian farmers.
Increased production in hogs can
be brought about more quickly than
in any other class of live stock,
and consequently should receive immediate attention.
Animal production on the farm is
desirable because it increases the
fertility and crop-raising ability of
the soil. Good prices are sure to
be obtained for any surplus which
farmers will have to sell on account
of the inevitable shortage of supply
resulting from war conditions in
Europe. These two conditions
should be an Incentive to Canadian
farmers to increase their live stock
production. A little foresight now,
with modern methods of feeding,
will make increased production
easily possible.���F.  C.  N.

OSTEND, Oct. 14.���There are
twenty thousand refugees in Ostend,
but the rush hither from inland has
ceased. The plight oT many ot these
refugees is pitiable in the extreme.
But there are very many well-
dressed people among them, perhaps scarcely less pitiable, for In
many cases their homes and all their
possessions have been utterly destroyed.
In the retreat of the field army
which had been defending Antwerp
along the one road still kept open
to the west, fighting continuously
for fourteen days, snatching hurried naps on the bare pavement or
grounds, hundreds collapsed on the
march and had to be left behind nt

had not yet reached, to follow after
treatment and rest.
Horse meat has been substituted
for beef at most of the hotels and

seized after chalking in a corner of
a village railway station some
figures and loiters supposed to indicate the allies' strength of defences in the neighborhood. He. was
dressed as a simple peasant and

You boasted the Day, and you toasted the Day,
And  now the  Day  has come.
Blasphemer, braggart and coward all,
Little you reck or the numbing ball,
The blasting shell, or the "whitu arm's" fall,
As they speed poor humans home.
You sided for the Day, you lied for the Day,
And woke the Day's red spleen.
Monster, who asked God's aid Divine,
Then strewed Ills seas with the ghastly mine;
Not all tbe waters of all the Rhine
Can wash thy foul hands clean.
You dreamed for the Day, you schemed for the Day;
Watch how the Day will ko.
Slayer of age and youth and prime
(Defenceless slain for never a crime)
Thou are steeped in blood as a hog in slime.
False friend and cowardly  foe.
You have sown for the Day, you have grown for the Day;
Yours is the Harvest red.
Can you bear the groans and the awful cries?
Can you see the heap of slain that lies,
And sightless turned to the flame-split skies
The   glassy   eyes   of   the   dead?
You have wronged for the Day, you have longed for the Day;
That lit the awful flame.
'Tis nothing to you that hill and plain
Yield sheaves of dead men amid the grain;
That widows mourn for their loved ones slain
And mothers curse thy name.
But after the Day there's a price to pay
For the sleepers under tho   sod,
Aud He you have mocked  for  many a day	
Listen, and hear what He has to nay
"Ven-jeance is mine, I will repay."
What can you say to God?

(From The Briln_i Columbian)
Here is a cheery letter from a
midshipman in one of the British
battleships that are waiting for the
German fleet to come out of hiding; it appeared in the London
Morning Post:
"A rumor got about that we had
been sunk, some wooden gear that
we had thrown overboard being
found. We have not been sunk yet,
nor, I am sorry to say, have we
sunk any Germans. By the time
this fetches up, however, I hope w*}
shall have met them, captured most
of tbem, and sunk the rest. We
are all itching for a scrap, and this
routine is getting rather monotonous. We go to night defence-stations lor three and a half hours
every night, and sleep in our clothes
during our watch off and after daylight. We go into harbor to coal
every four or five days. In the daytime at sea we have nothing to do
except to rig night defence gear
(searchlights are stowed below at
daylight), do physical drill, running round the ship, etc., to keep
ourselves fit, and occasionally going to action stations. Of course
there have been various alarms,
when we have had to rush to our
stations. But they are generally
caused by some ham-handed horse
marine firing a gun by mistake, or
by some twivel-eyed lookout seeing
one of our own ships and thinking
it the enemy, or mistaking a treacle
tin for the periscope of a submarine.
Anyhow, none of them have come to
anything; but they tend to relieve
the monotony, although at the ex-
penes of sleep, which Is a rare luxury, especially at night. We have
to sleep in tbe signal house so as
to be near our searchlights, and are
waked up every two or three minutes by signalmen coming in and
falling over our feet (I can imagine
you saying it serves me right for
having such big ones). It is the
only place where they can switch
on a light to read signals.    But in

dropping nine bomhs, some of which
fell on the enemy's stock near
"Thursday, October 1, was a perfect autumn day and the most peaceful since the two forces became engaged on Uie Aisne. There was
only desultory gun fire. During
tho night the enemy made a few new
trenches and a French aviator dropped one bomb on the railway station and three bombs on nearby
"Tbe weather on Friday, the 2nd,
was hazy. The Germans were
driven out of a mill which they had
occupied as an advanced position,
their guns and machine guns which
supported it being knocked out one
by one by well directed artillery firing. During the night they made
the usual two attacks on the customary _pot on our lines and were
again repulsed.
"The following description of the
enemy's infantry tactics was given
by a battalion commander who has
been at the front since the beginning and has fought both In the
open and behind entrenchments:
"The important points to watch
are the heads of valleys and ravines
and woods; especially those on the
sides of hollow ground and all dead
ground to tbe front and flank. The
German officers are skilled in leading troops forward under cover in
close bodies, but once the latter are
deployed and there is no longer the
direct, personal leadership, the men
will not face heavy fire. Sometimes
the advance is made in a series of
lines, with the men well opened
out; at others, it is made in lines
with the men almost shoulder to
shoulder; but it is followed in all
cases by troops in close formation.
The latter either waver when the
front is checked or crowd on. The
mass forms a magnificent target.
Prisoners have described the fire of
our troops as pinning them to the
ground and this is borne out by
their actions,
"When the Germans are not heavily entrenched no great losses are
incurred in advancing against them.
For instance, with one attack over
fairly open ground against about an
equal force of infantry sheltered In
a sunken road and in ditches, we
lost only ten men killed and sixty
wounded, while more than 400 of
the enemy surrendered.
"Each side had the support of a
battery of artillerx, but the fight for
superiority of infantry fire took
place at a range of about 700 yards
and lasted only half an hour. By
this limn the Germans were wavering. Some of them put up white
flags, but others went on firing.
Eventually a large number of white
flags were exhibited all along tbe
line any many of the men hoisted
their helmets on their rifles.
"In the fighting behind entrenchments the Germans endeavor to gain
ground by making advances in line
at dusk or just before dawn and
then digging themselves in, in the
bope, no doubt, that they may eventually get so near as to be able, as
during manoeuvres, to reach the
hostile trenches in a single rush.
"They never have succeeded in
doing this. If, by creeping up in
dead ground, they do succeed in forwarding their position by night,
they are easily driven back by fire
in the morning. A few of the
braver men sometimes remain behind at close range and endeavor
to inflict losses by sniping, Sharpshooters are often located in trees.
"Few night attacks have been
mnde against us. Previous to one
of them a party of tho enemy crept
up close to the British line and set
alight a hay stack so that it should
form a beacon on which tho centre
of the attacking line marched. Light
balls and searchlights on some occasions have been used."
We invite the public to
inspect our stock of
having obtainad a large
and varied stock we

Hon.   W.   J.   Bowser's    Report    on
Fisheries of Province Is Interesting Document.
Figures showing tbe enormous
value of the fishing industry to the
province are embodied iu the report
of the Hon. W. J. Bowser, chief
commissioner cf fisheries, for the
year 11113. The fisheries of British
Columbia for the fiscal year ending
-.arch 31, 1913, totalled $14,455,-
480 in value, an increase of $778,-
oti3 over those of the preceding
twelve months. This exceeds the
value of the fisheries of tbe three
almost half the total value of the
Maritime Provinces combined and is
almost half the- total value of tho
lisherles of Canada, which for that
period  amounted  to  $33,389,464.
The salmon pack of B.C. constitutes the chief factor in the total,
amounting to $9,540,368. Tho chief
increases in production wero in hali-
Lut and herring. For the year
quoted, halibut valued at $2,461,208
was landed at the ports of the province, as compared with quantities
valued at $1,845,135 in the previous
year. Au enormous increase in the
value of the herring taken is also
shown, this being figured at $1,-
017,417, as compared witb $414,-
730 for the preceding year.
Fuller investigation of the habits
nnd distribution of the food fishes
of this coast, states the report, is
absolutely necessary to conserve the
great revenue for thc province and
to establish a glowing future for
this lucrative industry. No attempts on any worthy scale have as
yet been made in this direction and
aside from investigations pursued by
the provincial department from time
to time, there has been very little
literature dealing with this important subject. Efforts should be
made to determine the life history

Fraser Valley Markets Commissioner Abbot hag filed the following
report on market conditions in the
Fraser Valley, which will be issued
to the farmers of the valley. The
report is dated October 3:
During the paat two weeks the
market conditions in the coast cities
have been fairlv steady in prices
and the demand slightly better tuan
the weeks previous. The last cars
of prunes having been cleaned up
and the bulk of the shipments received now being apples, makes conditions easier and steadier. Although one can find a great number
of boxes of apples being sent in from
local points we do not begin to supply anything more than a "wee portion" of the trade. Considering the
"upset conditions of the country"
and the large apple crop along with
the low quotations from across the
line we consider the prices being obtained by our local growers for good
grades are equal to any obtained in
the market. Although a number of
cars of American apples, etc., are
turned down weekly for codlln moth
there are still enough passing the
inspection to meet the demands of
the cities. The pears found on the
"row" are practically all from over
the line, being Clairgeau, Idaho and
late Bartletts, the flavor of the latter evidently having been left he-
hind. No table carrots or parsnips
are in the markets. Potatoes are
coming in, mostly all from tho Orientals, at $15.00 per ton. These are
'owland products and not worth any
more. The potato crop and the
potato market is a matter of great
speculation at the present time
among the farmers, the commission
man apparently contenting himself
with trying to make himself believe
that "it's the same old story, I hear
it every fall, the farmer has got to
sell; if I can't buy tbem cheap here
I can across the line." It is true
these conditions have occurred, bul
we do not anticipate anything like
this to occur this season.
Some facts for the farmer to consider: There has been steady shipments of potatoes out of the province
for the last ten weeks. Since the
digging has started on the late varieties, reports say "not more than
a third crop." Hundreds of tons
have already been bought up at
prices from $13 to $18 per ton f.o b.
shipping point. The price of sacks
this year is about $2.00 per ton
higher than last year. There Is a
very short crop in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Buyers are paying as
high as $22 in the lower mainland.
and Ashcroft is quoting $2:! f.o.h.,
which will no doubt be raised soon.
Calgary price wholesale is $:'-'i-
Other prairie towns about the same.
Buyers are contracting In Yakitn_
at $18 to $20 for digging time.
Advice to the farmer who has
good potatoes and can hold them N*
to not sell under $20 at digging
time. When the digging is once
over the  price will advance rapidly.
