LONDON, Aug. 5.
-Great Britain declared war on Germany at seven
o'clock  last "night.     Ihe announcement that Germany had declared
on Great British was due to an error in the admiralty's state
Gauntlet Thrown Down
BERLIN, Aug. 5.    Shortly after sever
Goschen,  the British  ambassador,  went   to   the   foreign   office an.l  announced that Great Britain had declared war ou Germany     He th��n demanded his passports.
No Time Wasted.
LONDON, Aug. 5.���The momentous decision of the British government for which the whole world has heen waiting, came before the expiration of the time limit set by Griat Britain in her ultimatum to Germany demanding a satisfactory reply on the subject of Belgian neutrality
Germany's reply was the summary rejection of the request tnat
Belgian neutrality should be respected.
The British ambassador at Berlin thereupon received his passports
and the British government notifisd Germany that a state of war existed
between the two counries.
British Armada Released.
LONDON,  Aug.  5.���Immediately following the momentous declaration the admiralty flashed the word  to    the admiral    commanding the
fleet with the directions to capture or  destroy  the  German   fleet.    With
what impatience the British ships had lieen kept in their secret rendezvous in the. North Sea may be only   conjectured;    with   what   ardor they
responded  to their sailing order may soon be apparent.
His  Majesty's Message.
Quickly  following  the  admiralty's    despatch    His    .Majesty    King
George sent this personal message to the   English fleet   sailing" against
the German armada, to clear for action:
"I have every confidence that the British flee! will revive the old
glories of the navy. I am sure that llie navy will again shield Britain
in this hour of trial.    It will prove the bulwark of the empire.
Long Silence Broken.
This was the first message sent to the fleet since It cleared from
I'ly in on'.** Harbor and sailed to its secret rendezvous in the North Sea.
Ever since the wireless has been silent, no word was permitted to go
orth until tonight the signal for the most tremendous naval battle ever
lashed out through the darkness from the great naval wireless station.

What  is believed to be cannon  firing   was   heard   in   the   direction   of
Seguln Island.    It has been the lm-
I pression in Portland, Maine, for sev-
eral   days   that   there   were   British,
German and French cruisers hovering  off New   England   coast.     .Many
citizens heard firi.g.   The keeper of
the Portland observatory said he is
positive it vvas not thunder. The German  warships  Karlsruhe  and  Dres-
I den communicated with Portland by
! wireless  Tuesday  night  but  refused
| to give their positions.    The French
cruisers  Conde  and   Descortes    are
I thought to  be ships most likely to
have met them.

(From the British Columbian)
Tho Richmond council at its Monday session authorized the clerk to
notify the B. C. Telephone Company
that the council would not pass the
plans or grant any privileges in
Richmond unless a flat rate of $1.50
a mouth was agreed upon. The
council was of the opinion that the
charge of 2 5 cents a mile over the
three-mile  limit  was  excessive.
The resolution emb.jying this decision was passed on motion of Councillors Fentiman and McCallan.
lt is understood that the directors
jot the Farmers' Telephone Company
I will still continue the negotiations
(with the B. C. Telephone Company
I in reference to selling to that cor-
Mr. T. Kldd, one of the directors
jof the Lulu Island concern, stated
that the company was formed and
existed for the good of the ratepay-
ers, and not for the shareholders, as
such. One of the conditions they
I would ask, he said, was that the B.
C. Telephone Company would not
raise the rates now being paid by
those who were on the Farmers' ser-
j     On Friday evening last,    July 31.
'the Strawberry  Hill  Women's  Institute, held a  whist    drive and social
.evening  when the ladies invited the
members  of   the   Fanners'   Institute
on    that     occasion.    Tlie    even.ii
proved  a very successful one and  a
��� more   sociable   gathering   could   not
be   found,   for    i ach     and  everyone
seemed  to Indulge    In    a  real good
time from start to finish.    At      the
I close  of  the   whist  drive  the  prizes
were awarded by thfl president. Mrs.
J.   B.   Kirk.    The honorable lady to
i receive   a   very  elegant   flower   bowl
was      MUs        II Olson, and
'a very handsome shaving mug to
I Mr. G. Ferrell, who obtained high-
Jest score lor the gentlemen. The
prizes were much appreciated by
both. The a'fair was marked as the
first of the kind to take place at
the Hill under the Institution, and it
Is hoped that it will not be the last.
Refreshments were then served hy
the many willing helpers, who waited on the joyous crowd. Much credit was due to the ladies who so willingly provided the refreshments for
the occasion. Dancing was indulged
in by the young folks till the small
1 ours ��- the morning. Last but not
'o-i t m"h appreciation was shown
to Mr. W. Atchison, who furnished
lhe music for the dance, and to Mr.

attended to his part in his usual admirable manner.
Up-Rlver Boats Report Catch of 300
Fish���Down-River    Still
(From the British Columbian)
The long expected sockeye salmon run has arrived up river at last,
and although no extraordinary
catches are reported from up river
still a number of the b,oats secured
around 300, which, considering the
prevailing price of 35 cents, is pretty
good fishing. In the main river
here the catches are very small.
Xext Monday and Tuesday Is predicted to be the days on which the
run will reach its height, and the
cannerymen fully expect to have
their plants pressed to capacity with
the scaly beauties on that date. Up-
river boats last night averaged about
150 to the boat and down river the
catch was slightly heavier, while
the traps on Puget Sound got fair
catches also.
Bellingham correspondent reports
that 56,000 sockeyes were received
yesterday, all being from the traps,
while Anacortes received almost 20.-
000 all told, 3,000 being delivered
by seiners.
More salmon than before this
season are reported on the salmon
banks, and in the vicintiy of the
traps, and near Point Roberts.
The traps in the Straits of Fuca
are not taking many sockeyes, as the
fish are taking an outside course.
This improvement also showed Itself in the Gulf of Georgia and off
Point Grey, where tbe boats fishing
for the main river and North Arm
canneries averaged about 100 fish
per boat delivered, and reported
considerable salmon outside.
The main river boats also delivered between fifty and 160 flsh each.
Canoe Pass was not up tu tho
standard, the fish appearing to favor
the Sandheads and  Point  Grey.

burned to the ground about four
o'clock this morning. The building

the cause of the fire.

The following letter in reference
to the special survey that it was
proposed to have made, has been received by the Richmond Council
from the district registrar of titles:
"1 understand from Messrs. Cleveland and Cameron that they have
recently done no work in connection
with the special survey cf all that
portion of the municipality situated
east of Number Five road, which by
order of the attorney-general was
directed to be made under my In
"Messrs. Cleveland and Cameron
inform me that your council is
averse to the survey being completed, but I have informed them that
inasmuch as it Is evident that the
existing surveys are not reliable and
that it is possible that I may have
to refuse registration of certain
titles in the district affected, that It
Is necessary that the survey should
proceed and be completed without
delay. I am not aware that the attorney-general has made any order
suspending the survey."
The Richmond Council sat as a
court of revision In connection with
the assessment roll for the dyking
scheme round Sea Island and that
on Lulu Island along the North Arm
of the Fraser river, between Number Two and Number Five roads on
Monday last. No appeals were received, and the bylaws Will, therefore, be carried through ln the ordinary way. It is expected that the
work of constructing the dykes will
be taken in hand as soon as possible, so as to have them completed
during the  fine weather.
The Lulu Island local Improvement and maintenance bylaw, to
provide for the upkeep of the dyking
and drainage systems on the east
of Lulu Island, and the tax sale bylaw, fixing the date for the sale of
land for delinquent taxes for September 2, were both carried through
their  final  stages.

Mt, Lehman Farmers' Institute En-
dprsee Co-operative Marketing:
of Produce.
MT. LEHMAN, Aug. 1.���The
farmers of the Mt. Lehman district
of Matsqui showed at a meeting held
here last night that they were enthusiastically in favor of the co-operative marketing movement of the
Fraser Valley Development League.
At the close of the Institute meeting they were addressed by Markets
Commissioner Abbott, who presented
to them the practical value of organizing the producers of the Valley in
order to promote the better marketing of farm produce and to secure
a sure foothold in the British Columbia and prairie consuming centres
for locally grown foodstuffs. He
pointed out how a Central selling
agency could atteud to the marketing end of some 2,000 ranchers with
as little expense as one farmer would
incur in investigating market conditions for himself.
ileevo Merryfieid presided and in
an admirable introduction, outlining
some features of the movement that
pealed to him, expressed appreciation of the new work being undertaken by the league. The discussion
which Mr. Abbott provoked was
taken part in by Municipal Clerk
Gibson. President Phillips, of the
Farmers' Institute, Messrs. King.
Morrison, Nicholson, all of whom declared their approval of any action
that would promote union in mar-,
keting. The meeting by resolution
endorsed the movement. Mr. Abbott will address a meeting in Abbotsford shortly.
