Pans, Sept. Ilth.—It is officially announced by the French office that the German centre as well as the
right wing has been pushed back with tremendous loss to the Germans and that they are in full retreat. The
French and British troops were invincible in their offensive movement, the Germans being unable to stand up
against their onslaughts.
London, Sept. llth.-The British forces in Africa have defeated with great loss the Germans in Nyassia
Land, British Central Africa. British also victorious in East Africa. Many white officers were killed on both
sides. The conditions in Africa point to Germany losing all her possessions in that hemisphere, as well as her
holdings in Asia and the Chinese Empire.

Exhibitions ii Ritts-Kifer Hall
Preliminary—Anderson ts. Wood ill
On the  evening of Monday,
Sept. 7th, (Labor Day),  in the
Ritts-Kifer Hall at Prince, at 10
o'clock, Harry Anderson the
well-known lightweight met Jeff
Woodall in a fast five round preliminary.   From the first gong
of the  bell  the  fight  was all
Anderson's with the  exception
of perhaps the first round, Wood-
all landing several straight lefts
to Anderson's jaw which made
him take   notice,    lhe   round
elided   about even.    After the
firsi round  Anderson was the
aggressor, forcing the fight during the remainder of the bout
and landed at will, Woodall be-
ing on the defensive,   Woodall
landed several blows with telling effect, but they didnot seem
to fizz on Anderson.   In the 5th
Anderson mixed things up fast'
and showed his superoir general-
ship.   The referee awarded the
decision to Anderson on points,
the fans being well pleased with
the verdict.
Monro vs. Herron
After the preliminary the mat
was laid and everyone awaited
the arrival of the grabblers. At
10:45 Munro appeared on the
mat, followed a few minutes later by Joe Herron, both men re-
ceiving applause. The referee
announced that Munro agreed to
throw Herron and McDonald
each two falls in one hour or
forfeit $500,
At 11:00 o'clock, after the
usual handshake the contestants
laced each other and the big
match commenced. Herron
tried for a leg hold and in doing
so slipped, Munro as quick as a
fash grabbed him and pinned
his shoulders to the mat with a
hammerlock, Time 2 minutes
and 20 seconds,
After the usual rest time was
called and before the crowd
realized what had taken place
Munro had secured a body hold
with which he forced Herron to
the mat for the second fall.
Time 20 seconds. Munro had
completed his agreement as far
as Herron was concerned and
Herron retired. Herron possessea
a line physique but lacked experience. The fans were by this
time well pleased with Munro's
clever work and anxiously awaited the arrival of Duncan McDonald who was supposed to be
a clever mat artist.
Munro vs. McDonald
When McDonald appeared the
crowd cheered. A moment later
the gong rang and Munro faced
his second opponent. McDonald
although much lighter put up a
flne exhibition and after ten
m»mtes hard work Munro discovered that he had more than
an amateur to deal with, and
McDonald by his quickness and
acrobatic feats got out of many

worried with a scissor hold on
the leg with which he managed
to hold Munro for several minutes
Munro was the aggresor. The
fans were well pleased with the
clever defence McDonald put up.
After a fast exhibition of over
thirty minutes duration Munro
secured the first fall with a bar
and arm hold. Time 37 minutes
and 40 seconds. After the rest
the men faced each other for the
final;McDonald on the defensive.
Munro previous to the last fal
secured a crotch and half nelson
with which he could have pinned
McDonald to the mat, but preferred giving the crowd a run
for their money and allowed McDonald to break the hold. For
awhile it looked as though McDonald would stick it out, but
Munro's weight and severe holds
were beginning to tell. Munro
secured the final fall with a
half nelson. Time 3 minutes
and 20 seconds.
In almost three quarters of an
hour Munro succeeded in defeating his two opponents by four
straight falls and had over 15
minutes to the good.
Munro was declared the winner
amid great cheering, and several
of the fans jumped upon the
mat to shake hands and congratulate him upon his great

well pleased with his decisons
and went home satisfied,
It is rumored that Harry Anderson intends leaving our midst
in the near future, Frisco being
his destination. He will meet
several of the Canadian lightweights before crossing the line.
The fans wish him the best of
luck enroute and hope that they
may again see him in action in

Special to the Herald, London, Via Vancouver Sep. 11.
After four days of almost continuous fighting the
general situatiorf along the entire battle line of nearly
One Hundred Miles from Paris to Verdun, the allies
have steadily driven the Germans back in an easterly
direction forty miles in the four days. The Germans
show signs of wearing down, having exhausted themselves in their tremendous onslaughts. A decisive
battle is hourly expected, the English, French, and
Belgians it is believed have the situation well in hand
and have driven the Germans into a corner where they
must fight.
The Russians also are reported from Koenigsburg on
North to Galicia as advancing in a westerly direction
two hundred miles. They are preparing to besiege
Breslau and then move on Berlin. The Austrians are
said to be in a panic since their overwelming defeat in
Galicia and Lemburg where they lost 150 guns, and
are ready to sue for peace. This battle lasted seven
days; the Russians captured large nnmber of heavy
and light guns, artillery and field kitchens. The
Austrian losses were enormous. The Austrian third,
eleventh, and fourteenth corps were entirely demolished and part of the 7th and 12th.
The British Squadrons have swept the North Sea but
found not a single German warship.
The White Star Steamship Oceanic coverted into a
cruiser and transport in the British Government service
struck a rock on the coast of Scotland and is a complete wreck.
The officers and crew were gaved. It is believed she was on
her way north to convey Russian troops from Archangel on the
White Sea, south through the Arctic Ocean down the coast of
Norway into the North Sea and thence to Belgian or French
ports. The Oceanic was easily capable of carrying 8000 to
10000 men.

equipment donated by the people of the United States.
London.—Lord Kitchener's second army is enlisting at the
rate of 30,000 per day,
London, Sept. llth.-The Secretary of State for India, announced in the House of Commons to-day that India's Contribution to the war amounts to fabulous sums of money, thousands of men, horses, guns, and camels. All of the chiefs demand the right to fight for the King. Sir Pertab Singh, aged
seventy years, sent out of his force 70,000 men who have since

The Quesnel players were all
young men and good runners
while the South team was composed of old lacrosse players who
were sadly out of practice and
lacked wind.
: Repeatedly throughout the
game the South team shot on the
Quesnel goal; but in every case
the shots either went wild or
were easily stopped by the
visitors goal-keeper who played
his position perhaps better than
any other man on the field.
The home team lacked practice
and training and considering the
hurried pick up team they put
on the field deserve a great deal
of credit for the showing they
| made against the seasoned Quesnel players.
The Quesnel players scored a
goal in each of the first three-
quarters. The locals tried hard
to score;but they lacked combination and without it no team can
hope to accomplish anything.

Editor Fort George Herald,—
The South Fort George Lacrosse Association wish through Ihe medium of
your valuable space to sincerely thank
the people uf this district for their
cordial reception of the first Lacrosse
match which we have been able to
arrange in this northern part of British Columbia and also for thc kind assistance wnich made the visit of the
Quesnel Lacrosse team and their
friends such an unqualified success. The
following extract of a letter received
from their Club is self explanatory.
A. B. Moffat,
Sec'y. South Ft. George
Lacrosse Association,
South Fort George, B. C.
Dear Alcx,-
The Quesnel Lacrosse team enroute
down the Fraser wish to express their
cordial appreciation of the splendid
treatment received by them at the
hands of the Lacrosse team and people
of South Fort George. That appreciation is especially to be expressed to
W. F. Cooke, the instigator of the
whole project. We would further express the hope that the cordial reception by the people of South of the
game may mean the permanent establishment of our national past-time in
northern B. C.
We are asiurred that the return
g.»me will be received with equal pop-
1913. The general feeling is one
of confidence in the future.
Threshing returns tend to show
that reported estimates of the
oat and wheat crops have been
somewhat below the mark. There
is a general feeling that there
will be an exceptional and continuing demand for food stuffs
from Canada this year and next.
Most commodities have advanced during the week. Bank clearings show some falling off but it
is not as large as in other trade
centres, The merchants are
conserving their cash resources.
Conditions are looking forward
to brisk trade with the setting
in of the fall weather and actual
cash returns from the crops. Altogether a not too discouraging
report considering the conditions
of the world in general.
When Soloman was about to
judge his people and was asked
what gift he most desired, he
prayed that he might be given
an understanding heart. The
aspiration of that wise man
ought to be on the lips of every
modern Magistrate. Justice and
mercy have their seat in an understanding heart as well as in a
logical and analytical brain.
"I've come to kill a printer,"
said the little man.
"Any printer in particular?'
asked the forman.
"Oh, anyone will do, I would
prefer a small one, but I have
got to make some sort of a show
at a fight or leave home since
the paper called my wife's tea-
party a 'swill affair'."
Keep up your hearts. Do not
forget that ours is still the best
nation on earth,
Everything HOME - LIKE at
Hotel Robarts.

We wish to tender our thanks with
those of the Quesnel Club to Mr. W.
F. Cooke our live and rustling president to whose efforts so much of the
days success was due. We are also
deeply indebted to Mr . Geo. E. McLaughlin for her gift of flowers, to Mrs
A. B. Moffat for her able handling
■ if refreshments, to Mr. Walter Adams
who acted as floor manager at our
dance and to the business men whose

We would filso like to announce that
by special arrangements with Captain
Browne of the Steamer B. X. and  the
B. C. Express Company a return rate
of $10 has been offered the supporters
of the South Fort George Lacrosse
team, and a large number of citizens
who, we feel sure will take advantage
of theBe exceptionally low rates to
visit Quesnel on the tilth inst.
The team is in honor bound to make this
return visit and will appreciate both
the presence of those who can make
the trip and the assistance of those
who cannot.
Yours truly,

Selling at Cost
No business can be conducted on the "SPILING AT
COST" plan. Firms claiming to transact, their's on these
lines are either decern.g the public or are in business for
I e sport of the thing-the latter is hardly probable.
Anyone with a grain of common sense will agree with
s when we make the statement, that in order to sell goods
a firm must bear a certain amount of expenditure such as
Insurance, Taxes. Salaries of Clerks Etc., Etc People
engaged in lhe mercantile business are not mere philanthrop-
ists; they MUST get a certain amount of interest on the
capital they have invested, AND THEY DO
So Eeware of 'SALES AT COST', They Are Fakes.
The secret of selling is buying right. In this we excel
and it places us in a position to sell you the highest quality
of goods (not junk) at the lowest possible figure and still

An independent newspaper is
'one that realizes that no party or
j other combination of men has a
monopoly of all the fruitful ideas
land high principles.
It is a newspaper that deliberately preserves its freedom to
! stand for what it conceives ti be
the right wherever it finds it-
no matter what label it may
bear. - •
It is a newspaper that insists
on finding its opinions in the
mental processes of its makers,:
in contact with the realities of
life, instead of having them cast
in the molds of the official pronouncement of partisan chiefs.
It is a newspaper that makes
no pretense of infallibility; that
shirks no issue where it believes
a vital issue exists; that declines1
to be drawn into personal, partisan, or political controversy on ;
the mere assertion of interested
parties that a great isssue is involved.
But over and above all this the
independent newspaper seeks the
"higher ground" of agreement
between opposing factions that
are sincerely struggling for the
public good.
A good French priest once said
substantially this we quote frem
memory: "I care not to argue
with my opponents. I care only
to be united with them in a
higher synthesis."
Always to seek the "higher
synthesis" that will unite all
those who stand for public good
in a common effort.
Always to try to perceive amid
the fret and fury and inconse-
quentiality off action some higher
ground embraces all that is vital
and patriotic in the views of all
Always to proclaim this higher
ground when once it is clearly
perceived and to endeavor to
rally good citizens to it by all the
means within its power.
That is the really independent
newspaper-the only newspaper
that can make the title a true
badge of honor.

Much work seems to be getting

the residental portion south of
Laselle Avenue on Sixth and

have been built for over two
years have no road but only trails
cut by wagon wheels when taking the nearest way have gone:
through many private lots. I

"The World at War"
Poet Tennyson's Prophetic Vision
For 1 dipt into I lie future, fur as human
eye could pee,
Saw the vision ol the world, and all the
wonder tnat could be ;
Saw the heavens till with commerce,
argosies ol magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilijrht, dropping
down wiih costly bales ;
Heard the heavens fill with shouling,
and there rain'd a ghastlj dew
From the nations'airy navies grappling
in the central blue ;
Far along Ihe world-wide whisper of
the south-wind rushing warm,
With Ihe standards of the peoples
1 lunging thro' the thunder storm ;
Till the waf-d rum throbb'd no longer,
and the' battle-flags were furl d
In the Parliament of .Man, the Federation of the World. -

We quite sympathize with the
people in fhe residential section,
as we have an occasional cause
to go into their part and have noted the manner of trails winding
in and about, and over oilier
peoples lots and lack the comfort
or convenience in getting around.
jSome work should be done in
this section if no more than to
grade and cut through the east
and west avenues, Laselle and
Hamilton Avenues.
But then the good people residing there must know that we
; all have cause to complain that

Statistics show that girls are
putting on weight right along
and growing taller with a rapidity which has never been observed before. And, accprding
to all indications, it seems that
in the somewhat distant future
the "females of llie species" will
be much taller than the "male."
One pf the main reasons ascribed to this development is the
growing love of sports and outdoor exercises on the part of
women, They have more time

"It is clearly evident that the

Germans' position untenable in;
the long run.
"It is evident equally that the
Kaiser cannot afford to permit;
the fatherland to be crushed in i
the final stage of the struggle, I
ns final defeat even after early
military   victories   would   mean
the probable loss of his imperial)
crown and serious   internal
trouble in Germany.
"Diplomatists who at first
took the view that this would be
a fight to the finish are now taking the vieVv that the Kaiser will
endeavor to end the struggle
with a grand flourish of German trumpets, even though Germany gets no fruit of victory,''

In Canada we have had the spectacle of home funds
deposited in Canadian banks I y Canadian depositors sent
-.ess into foreign markets for speculation and call loans, and we
are told this was because in the call loan market they had
better control of their funds than they could get at home.
be* in the meantime we hear of legitimate business interests
begging in vain for funds on ample security to carry on
their enterprises.   If the money collected and deposited in
banks is not to be used and loaned out at reasonable rates
of interest, for the development of local territory, then of
what use are our banks.
: : "'J'/'     Investigation and questions brought out in one instance
..-.',. where a loan was sought, that thev had to take care of
:..-;■.. i '-heir big customers who would use more money in certain
quarters in the future fifty or hundred years, and that
their wants would have to be given preference.
the Hotel    In another investigation we found that these big con-
tha week cerr.s would borrow great sums: for example, $100,000,
:«r. =:»>-- u_e a ,.jar_ 0f jj. ancj ]eave y_g j-jaiance on deposit in the
"'Z Z bank for future use, but the bank would again loan the
„ Z, same money, the part not in use, to another large borrower,
and hence the double interest.
It has been known that a bank would have a customer
Comfort with a deposit of fair proportions, a loan with  good
collateral and yet have his loan called and the customer
put to some sacrifice to meet the call.   Here is where the
u ao» b banks cause failure and stringency, and no commodity is
so timid and suspicious as credit or confidence.
We appreciate that moral and business character should
__ govern the business of a bank in making loans and not
., alone collateral and present business stability, for reckless-
_ ness or loose living can break the strongest financial bark.
Our argument is not with this class of business.   It is quite
plain to many who have studied the situation that banking
tb Fon George is largely in the interests of the big financial concerns, the
so-called trusts, while the deposits of the smaller business
man is taken to provide a fund for the operations of the
cliques and pools who control the personal and interlocking
dispensers of life's necessities to the common people.   As
one of our leading citizens of British Columbia recently
wrote, it looked as if the Money powers told the Govern-
r ment what to do instead of the Government telling the
money powers what they could do.   And all of this, with
much more than the space of a single article cannot cover,
adds to the burdens of life, higher costs and greater strain
and wear and tear on the human race.   It is one of the
causes of the high cost of living, the misery and toil of
life of the millions to pay tribute'.to the favored thousands.
In these days of storm and fright, values are just as good
as they were two, three or more years ago, collateral just
as valuable, men's characters just as good, then why this
pressing down of the market, this scaling down of loans ?
These values will re-appear and some day we will all be
wondering what it was all about.
The real reason is that the general people do not study
and seek to understand economical conditions so that they
can elect to office men who will see to it that their welfare
is scientifically cared for. So that laws can be passed that
will protect the rich and poor alike, and that will make for
the welfare of all the people. The French Revolution was
fought because the Rulers of the people became so arrogant

Rulers would do well to mark the change of the times. A
patient and a long suffering people will one day take the
bit in their teeth ancl there will be a reckoning. The
present war is on the one side a last attempt of the
autocrats of Europe to fasten on the people the rule of
divine right, and on the other a determination of the
people restless under their burdens of Government and
regret of his coming departure j private privilege. The rulers are covering up their
^av*j domestic difficulties by foreign aggression, but the people
are getting suspicious of what is going on. So it is the
wide world over. The common people are coming into
their own ; every year marks a new epoc. Let it be a
peaceful warfare but a warfare just the same.
There is not a single dollar less in the world. Credit is
the commodity that is assailed and the banks are the
greatest offenders in frightening confidence and credit.
