French Canadian Tells of Atrocities by German Soldiers
—Escaped by Pretending to be United States Subject   Revelstoke Lady Returns from Eventful Trip
Germans are Preparing
to Evacuate Belgium
Horrible stories af atrocities perpetuated by German troops were
told to Mrs. M. Wilson of Revel
stoke, who returned to the city on
Friday from a trip to England, by
Madame Menette, a French Canadian
who was on the same ship as Mrs.
Wilson on bei return, and who had
barely escaped with her lite Irom the
clutches of the Herman soldiers.
Madame Menette, who is a French
Canadian from West Mouut, Montreal fell into the bands ol the Germans with six English women. The
German officers, who were drunk, ordered the women to he shot. Madame
Menette, before the time for execution
pretended to be an American citizen
and implored the officer to be allowed to send a telegram to Wnsbing-
ington. "Take your tag and go."
said the officer "and tell your president how good we nre to Americans"
In Madame Mnnettc's bag was $300
and letters bearing the Montreal
post mark and feu ring  that the Ger
mans would examine the contents of
the bag and discover that she was
8 Canadian she disclaimed ownership of the bag winch she never suw
The  other   women   were  shot   before
her eyes after Indlscrlbable cruelties
for no other reason but that they
were English. The breasts oi some ol
the women were cut off before they
were she.t ..ml an English soldier who
tried to protect the women was also
shot. Madam" Menette also declared
thut many Belgian prisoners were tQ
be seen with their hands cut ofl sq
that they could not shoot.
Madame Menette's passage to Canada wns paid by the Canadian Club
of London, England, and she reached Canada a nervous wreck.
Mrs. Wilson arrived in England the
day thnt war was declared. Scenes
of excitement prevailed as mobilization was in full    force.     The people

London, Oct. 3.— The great battle
of the Aisne has now l*een in progress
for three weeks and us yct no decision has been reached. The fiercest
fighting is taking place in the western area where an extremely violent
Lattle continues, especially in the
Roye district iu which thc
Germans have concentrated considerable forces The action appears to
he extending more northward.
On the left wing of the allies one
of the French detachments which
came out of Arms, department of
Pas de Calais has fallen back a little towards the east und north of
that city according to a French official announcement.
The allies huve made progress in
front of Albert, north of the Somnie
according to the latest official announcement in PariB. Eetweep Rove
and Lassingy violent attacks bave
been directed by the Germans against
the allies but these attacks, says the
French >var office have broken
against the British and French resistance. Along the rest ol the front,
rest is said to prevail.
It is officially announced in Paris
that no enemy remains on the left
bank of the Meuse in the neighborhood of St. Micbiel, JO miles south
of Verdun.
The  tirst  attempts  of  the Germans
j to pierce the outer line ol torts at
Antwerp nppear to have tailed. None
of thc Belgian forts bave beeu severely damaged, lt is stated in a French
official report that the German infantry attack? have been replused
with heavy losses to the invading
forces. On tbe ither band an official
statement issued hy Berlin says, that
the siege ol Antwerp is making progress.
Reports are being circulated again
to the effect that tbe Germans are
preparing to evacuate Belgium or at
least thnt portion as far east us
In the eastern theatre of war a
battle which promises to be tbe
greatest and most important of that
campaign has commenced near Cracow, Oalecia. There an Austrian-
German force estimated to number
8(10,000 is endeavoring to check the
Russian advance. Both sides are
bringing up reinforcements.
Accordiug to Russian official statements the German plan of invasion
of Prussia has failed. The statements
say, thc Germans got as far as the
western bank of the Nieman river,
but found strong Russian forces on
the eastern bank. Being in low and

Greut britaiu has already seized
Germany's possessions in Samoa and
elsewhere in tbe Pacilic. What will it
mean to Germany to part with these
scattered islands?
The German possessions in the
South Sea, while covering more territory than any of the Kaiser's other
colonies, are in comparison of leBs
value. They include German Samoa
and German Guinea. The latter
colony consists of the German portion of New Guinea, called Kaiser
Wilhelmsland, the Bismarck urchipela-
go and the district East and West
Carolines, Marshall, Patau, and Ma-
linnu Islands, all ot which are scattered over a vast ocean waste.
Uf the Samoan group the two principal islands ol Savaii and Upolu are
German; the rest belong to the United States. ECsllSSr Wilhelmsland is
about half a large as Prussia, while
the Bismurck archipelago iH some-
think like two-thirds tbe Bize ol
Bavaria. The inhabitants of these
various groups coiiBist ol several
hundred  thousand natives.
Samoa Best Developed.
Within this widespread zone Samoa
alone has hitherto undergone material development. In 191-J its commerce totalled £2,500,000. New Guinea
inclusive of the neighboring islands,
has but lately brought its trade up
to an annual figure of *5,O0O,0O0. The
reason for this rather sluggish
growth is twofold: First, there are
not enough native born workers, and,
second, the inaccessibility of the
principal islands of New Guinea and
the greater part ol the Bismurck
archipelago haB proved an obstacle
to advance.
The interior of New Guinea is ragged with mighty mounta'in ranges,
the greater part ol which remain
still unexplored, and the highest
peaks are continually snowclad. The
coast is exceedingly rugged and dangerous. The hills and valleys inland
are covered with virgin torests so
dense that a path can be cleured only by means ol the axe aud the
knife. The major portion of theBe
junglelike woodlands is uninhabited
and yields neither game for the hunter nor food of any kind. The native
population is sparse, hostile and shy.
Low Lying Lands Fertile.
From an economic viewpoint only
the shores of this possession accessible from the sea need be considered.
Here the ground is fertile, harbors
nnd wharves can be constructed; and
there is a possibility of turning the
natives into laborers. Unfortunately
few of the interior dwellers of New
Guinea can be induced to come out ol
their seclueion.
The principal product of this possession and the outlying islands under the same jurisdiction is copra,
and, accordingly, tbe industrial success of the colony hinges upon tbe
harvest of cocoanuts.
In the interior of the peninsula are
found   the   famous  birds  of  paradise.
The value of the plumage exported
Irom Kaiser Wilhelmsland amounts to
$105,000 annually, nnd in thc millinery trade It iB worth three or four
times this sum. Another peculiar
product of thc islands iB phosphate
or guano, which haB gathered through
the ugi'B upon the chalky corul where
enormous Mocks of birds have rooat-
id. In the course of u great many
years tbe surface deposit haB been
washed away by the rains, to be re-
u nulled into the underlying strata ol
lime, thus transforming the latter in-
to phosphate.
Nauru Richest  of Group
The island of greatest value in this
I articular is Nauru, lu the East
Caroline group, which exports yearly
In tbc neighborhood of $2,000,000
worth of this fertilizing substuncc.
Tin' native's arc a gifted and happy
go lucky race, courageous and possessed of a charm ordinarily foreign
to a primitive people. Their pleasing
I hyslque, their fondness for flowers
nnd taste In the matter of dress and
personal adornment, their skill in
in the building of their houses, and
their hospitality and noblcmindedness
are traits calculated to arouse
admiration. On        the        other
hand, they have a rooted aversion to
steady and serious industry, and this
inborn inertness is well nigh impossible to eradicate.
The Germans have realized that the
islands of tho South Pacific are not
susceptible of very rapid or extensive development, and yet they have
found in them ample material Ior
commercial  promise.
Cocoanut Promises  Wealth.
Year by year 'in Europe, with its
increasing population, it is becoming
more ditbcult to supply the demand
for animal fats, such as butter and
lard. Accordingly more and more
vegetable oils are utilized from the
production of artificial butter and the
like. For these preparations thc cocoanut offers an abundant and valuable raw material vastly superior to
the average stalls used. The cocoanut
tree grows close to the shores nnd accordingly wncre dense inlnnd woodlands ofler obstacles to clearance and
cultivation the outer lands in the
reach of the ocean breezes aro admirably suited for the planting of
cocoanut groves.
The loss of the island holdings in
the south Pacific would not be a
commercial calamity to Germany,
but the Kaiser's interest in these
possessions has not been fundamentally one of business concern. Thc map
will show you that they li* at strategic points along the trade routes
bound east nnd west Irom certain
sections of the Orient, going and returning via the Panama Canal. War
upon thc sea ;s not necessarily the
measuring of forces on the part of
fighting craft; you can cripple your
foe quite as effectively and in some
particulars more seriously when you
1 alt or hamper his overseas trade.

Business Problems as Result
of War Discussed   Questions Answered
"Problems of Contracts in War
Time" Is the title of an article published in a recent iBBue of The Loudon Times, which will be illuminating to thoBO merchants who have
been in the habit of doing business
with German tirms. The question has
beeu raised iu Canada since Great
Britain's declaration ol war against
Germany us to what becomes ol the
moneys due from this country Ior the
payment of goods received from the
Fatherland. The majority ol the
boards of trade have discussed the
issue, and, according to Eastern exchanges, n.i definite decision has heen
reached, it being agreed that the only thing to be done under the circumstances is to allow these matters to stand until some order is restored in Europe.
Dealing with the same subject, the
great London daily says:
The presence of a large number of
naturalized Germans trading in our
midst hus raised various questions ol
dilhculty and complexity to traders
with whom they have been accustomed to deal. Au expert committee of
the Londou Chamber ol Commerce
has had under consideration a number of technical iiuestions in regard
to contracts in war time, liability
Ior war risks, contraband ot war,
payments to foreigners and various
difficulties in connection with import
and export trade. On Saturday a
special circulur was issued by the
Chamber giving some very helpful information to members on all theBe
questions. Thc committee is meeting
regularly to deal with questions as
they arise, and have, provisionally
and under reserve, given answers to
questions which have been submitted
to them The answers are not to be
regarded as legal opinions—although
it is understood legal opinion has
been engaged—and are subject, ol
course to the ohligationr of members to consult their own legal adviser where necessary.
Limitations ol Contracts.
The question so (ar dealt with, together with the provisional answers,
include the following: i
1. War contracts under c.I.f. contracts. Who is liable, buyer or seller)—Depends on custom of trade, and
A-hat is a reasonable insurance contract in the circumstances. Having
regard to the usual form of Lloyd's
policy, thc presumption under ordinary circumstances is in tavor of the
buyers undertaking the risk.
-.'. Whut are the limitations in regard to dealing with the subjects of
alien enemies'—There must be no
such dealings (except by His Majesty's license) except that, il enemy-
subjects are allowed by the Government to remain in the territory of
Great Britain or an ally, ordinary
contracts for their daily subsistence
and employment are probably permissible, and contracts in the ordinary wny of business, involving no
extensive operations, which might
lead to conflicts of national duty,
are possibly permissible.
:i. Payments due by British firms to
alien enemies. What posiWon should
be taken by British firms?—No such
payments whatever should be made
during war, except possibly In pursuance of contracts as above Indicated.
■I. Is the making of contracts with
an alien enemy legal*'—No.except na
Stated   under 2.
5. If Contract! have been made during peace with alien enemies, does
Ihe luptfftolng of war mnke the fulfilment of them an Illegal     act,     or
does it merely excuse such fulfilment?
—It Huspcnds performance until
peace—except ■ when (.a) such suspension would be inconsistent with thc
object o( the contract, (b) The continuance of the contract would militate against public policy (as in the
case ol insurance of     hostile     shipB
'and cargoes against capture). In
these excepted cases the cuntract is
voided. In any case performance during war is unlawlul il it involves any
communication with the enemy.
] 6. lf the right to contract or to
fulfil contracts is qualified by law,
does such qualification attach only
to national enemies domiciled in the
enemy country, or decs it extend to
all residents, including British, who
may remain in the enemy country, or
enemies residing here?—In our opinion it extends to all—subject to
licenses and the indulgence extended
to enemies permitted to remain here
or in allied territory. (See J supra.)
7. We know that war haB now been
declared against Germany, but what
effect would that have commercially
as regards her ally Austria-Hungary
while the latter country and this
were nominally at peace?—None; but
imminence of war may justify a refusal to put property at risk.
8. Can the attorney of an alien
enemy sue to enforce payment in the
courts during the war, and in point
ol time what difference does the lor-
mal declaration ol war make?—We
think not.
Eight Hundred Leave on Two

The Oriental exodus is now well
under way, und for the next two
months the departure of ships with
capacity lists of Chinese will be a
In miliar sight at tbe coast. The reason tor tbe unusunl rush ol Orientals to the Ear East is the torth-
coming approach ol the Chinese New
Year, and its attendant celebrations.
The various steamship companies operating on the Pacific believe that
October will prove a banner month
as regards Chinese travel. No less
than 150 (Mentals hoarded the Osaka
t'hosen Kaisba liner I'anuma Maru
prior to her departure Irom Vic-
tcria for the Orient.
This number was greatly exceeded,
Ahen 6"0 Chinese embarked aboard
thc Blue Funnel liner Teucer for
nuiside the Canadian Pacific Em-
tresses, it is doubtful whether any
vessel plying in thc transpacific service has handled such a large Oriental list as tbat to be curried by the
Teucer. The Chinese trade is a lucrative one. and all the steamship com-
I airtes are anxious to secure a share
of 'it. As the whole of the Canadlun
Pacific railway transpacific fleet ia
temporarily out of commission, as
tar as the passenger and freltfit'trade
is concerned, the bulk of thc Chinese
business this yenr bas been diverted
to the Blue Funnel and Japanese
{Varying Decisions in Different
i   Parts of Country in Regard
to Germans and Austrians
Can alien enemies, Germans or
Austrians, resident in Cauada become naturalized citizens? ThiB Is a
nice legal question which has been
raised by the decisions of judges in
dilferent parts ol thc Dominion who
have relused naturalization papers to
Germans and Austrians who have
made application. On the other baud,
in many provinces there have been
large numbers of alien enemies who
have been granted naturalization. In
Hevelstoke, Judge Forin has granted
all applications while in Crunbrook
Judge Thompson hud relused petitions for naturalization by German
and Austrian subjects, while the war
is in progsess.
In view of the conflicting decisions
the question bas been referred to the :
department of justice at Ottawa.
Some opinion will likely be given |
.- h,ii 11 v, ua it is felt that there
should be uniform action throughout
the Dominion. While no judgment has
as yet been given by the justice de- ]
partraent, the view held by most of |
the Ottawa authorit'ics is that alien
enemies should be allowed to be
naturalized. It is felt, that apart
trom the legal side, tbe question, it
these men want to become Canadian
citizens they should be allowed to do
so, since their action ia un indication tbat they want to be quiet aud
| law-abiding Canadians, and that they
I are less liable to cause trouble as
citizens than aB aliens.
| On the other hand it is pointed
out that a man, If be so desired,
■ e.ulel curry ou operations as a spy
with much less danger as a British
subject than as an alien. It Ib also
pointed out tbat Germans and Austrians who desired to return to fight
could leave the country much easier
aB a Uritish subject thun as an alien.
The recent decision of Judge
Thompson, ol thc East Kootenay
County Court, British Columbiu,
which was published in the Mail-
Herald, has brought thc question to
a head. His decision has been
brought to thc attention ol thc justice department and is under review
at the present time.

working alone. Men need wholesome

invigorating, recreative, and with-

Three Squares a Day
In spite of war and the horrors of war n vast number of Canadians are going to need "three squares a day" just as ln
times of peace. They are gcttng to need such things as clothing, fuel, etc., too and a surprising lot of them will go on buying luxuries as well. ,\i* j j]
The bottom hasn't fallen out of trade. On thc contrary a
new bottom has been put ln. Live advertisers are going after
the new business, new markets, new fields made possible by
this great and unfortunate   war.
Just as modern methods of warfare will add new efficiency, new
features to this war so modern methods     of   selling through
real advertising and merchandising will add new efficiency to
the commercial ellort set   in motion by the war.
American manutacturers have discovered that owing to the
■butting ofl ol German expectations they have a brand new
market at their doors for such commodities as chemicals, drugs,
medicines, copper and manufactures, cotton goods, earthen
stone and China ware, glass and glass ware, malt liquors,
spirits, wines, silk manufactures, fruit nnd nuts, gloves, embroidery, hats, steel and Iron manufactures, toys etc.
The American advertisers are re-adjusting themselves with
wonderful rapidity and redoubling their efforts to secure new
trade heretofore denied them. Those who hesitate will lose a
tremendous opportunity and be handicapped for months perhaps
years, to come.

Mrs. J. E. Erskine, widow of u
former captain of the Tenth Royal
Hussars, who was for u time attached to the stall of Lord Kitchener,
now Britain'* war secretary, in the
lollowing interview discusses the
chiel ol the british war department
at short range.
Long belore Mrs. Erskine met the
army officer who eventually became
ber husband she knew Kitchener—at
thut time attached to the engineering corps—and has continued the acquaintance since At tin- lirst mectSng
Bhe mas n tail of four In short Bkirts
and blouse. To-day ulic i« i>> the
neighborhood <ii IU, and Ib residing
temporarily in New York.
"You bave eeen a great deal print-
< il showing the austere side of thiB
great man's character, but very little relating to tbe human side, and
thc human Bide is very strongly dc-
veloped in Lord Kitchener," she
said. 'Then you have seen him des-
u'ibed as a woman hater, but he is
lar (rom thut. He holds that an army
officer can best serve his country by
remaining single; that his chief duty
is to his king.
Not Woman Hater.
"I wus at the engineering depot ut
Woolwich with my parents when I
lirst saw the then engineer Kitchener.
He was moBt shy and diffident, but
I wusu't. In truth, I wus just the '
opposite, und probubly that is the
reason we became fast friends. Even
now I can remember how he started
when I asked him to please fasten
my garter. He did it, but he blushed.
Not long ulter that, when he was
called to Egypt, he gave me a doll,
und 1 treasured it muny years."
Mrs. Erskine told how, when she
waB eight or nine, Kitchener returned
Ion leave and renewed the acquaintance, telling her all about thc Soudan
'and teaching her French.    Next time
I she saw him she had reached tbo
mature age of nineteen and was in
love with Captain Erskine, of his
staff. It mas then that she learned of
his objection to the marriage of
urmy officers. He was Sirdar ol the
Anglo-Egyptuin army then, and England was beginning to take some notice of him.
Rebuke for Government.
I -When my husband's leave of absence expired I went to Algiers to be
■ near him." said Mrs. Erskine, "and
there got a better idea of Kitchener
iin the field. I remember one incident
distinctly. The Sirdar wanted a certain modern make     of     gun and so
'specified in fa requisition 6sent to the
war office. In due time he received a
reply saying the government     would
j send a different make. Immediately he
returned the order across which he
had written, 'You may keep your
guns; I can throw stones at the
Arabs raysell.' It is needless to say
he received tbe weapons he desired.
"It was during this campaign that
he recommended for D.S.O. (distinguished service order) a Roman Catholic bishop named Robert Brindle,
und was approached by a member of
bis stafl, who remarked he hardly
thought this would be popular in
Fngland unless a Church of England
cfivinc was also named. 'I recommend
u man for distinguished service,' the
general quickly replied. 'His religion
hus nothing to do with the matter.
Personally, it doesn't concern me
what the people at home have to
say.' |
Inconspicuous Man.
"When Kitchener waB going home
after conquering thc Soudan, I met
him in Marseilles. He was wearing a
blue serge suit and a Derby hat and
was much less conspicuous than the
members ol nis Btafl. And this in
spite ol the fact that he was about
to be made Lord Kitchener of Khartoum. I remember distinctly one thing
be suid to mc. It was this: 'I had always hoped my little girl would not
marry a Boldier.' 'Why?' I asked.
'Because,' he replied, 'war iB long
drawn out torture for a soldier's
wife. Do you realize you'll have to
play second fiddle to your husband?'
'Yes,' I answered, 'I know that, but
after all he loves me best.' 'True
enough,' said Kitchener, 'he loves
you, but In event of war he'll have
to leave you. Wur iB his profession
and he'll have to follow it.'
Raises College.
'If Kitchener wns determined in
war he was equally determined in
peace. One thing he bad set bis
heart upon wns an English college at
Khartoum. He was always raising
money for it, and I remeber after he
had be»n made a lord he raised .CJ-V
• "'0 by his determination. There was
to be a banquet ln the city, as we
term the entre of London, nnd thc
promoters wanted him as chief drawing card. 'I'll be there if you'll subscribe £30,000 for the college,' he
said. The committee finally oflered
£10.<XKi. -Now it will coet you £25,-
000,' said his lordship—und he got
the entire amount.
His Estimate of Fume.
"Later on Lord Kitchener, my husband and myself attended an utlair
in the general's honor, lt was held in
thc Corn Exchange at u small county
seal near London and wc had to listen to eulogies of his lordship from a
vcry small, pompous master of ceremonies. On the way home we pasBed
an Ice cream cart on which wore
lithographs of Queen Victoria, the
Prince Oi WiiIcb and our companion.
•'That, and that only, is fume," declared his lordship, Mocking bis own
dust-covered picture with the end ol
Mb riding whip."
Every newspaper reader knoWB that
(luring the present, wur correspondents are completely bottled up. A propos of this Mrs. Erskine tells of a
remark once made by Lord Kitchener
having a distinct bearing on the subject:
" 'If there is ever a great war,
and 1 happen to bc war secretary,'
he once said to me, "I'll make it a
criminal offense to print unauthorized news. But if there is u greut wur,'
he added. 'I am sure not to bc war
Saw  Nothing.
"In the Soudan campaign some of
the correspondents begged to go to
Khartoum and write what they saw.
He just smiled at them and replied:
'You can write what you see,' Then
he took pains that they remained in
the rear and saw nothing.
"The general was big enough to do
little things, and we all loved him
for it. I recall that I once wanted
my cousin, a member of the guards,
to take me to a theatre in London,
but I told him he must buy seats in
in the pit. He waB horrified. "What!
he excalimcd, 'you sit in the pit and
your husband a member ol the Tenth
HUBSars! You can't afford to do
that!' The general overheard the
conversation and Bmiled a three-cornered smile for which he is famous.
'I'm going to London this afternoon,' he remarked to me, 'and I'll
take you to thc pit. I'm not a mem-
1 er of the guards. 'We went, but we
didn't s*it in the pit."
Once When He Retreated.
Lord Kitchener's only retreat was
orderly, but still a retreat. It occurred in London not bo long after royal honors had been conlerred upon
him Dy Queen Victoria, whose hand
he kissed, although, as he later said,
"It was a long way down to reach
it." On the day of the retreat the
general had been feted at a dozen af-
fuirs and finally wound up at a tea
where Mrs. Erskine was one of the
guests. Women, particularly, had besieged him and when he saw his old
friend he rushed to her.
" 'Talk to me! Please talk to me!
Never mind what you say, but say
something just as though it were important,' he begged me," said Mrs.
Erskine. "So I talked to him about
nothing and finally managed to ask
him whut had disturbed him. 'It's
those two women over there, he said,
pointing to a couple of grande dames.
'They have been following me all the
ulternooi. and I didn't think I ever
would escape.'
Kitchener hus a Bense of humor as
well as a sense ol justice. One day
he, Capt. Erskine, the latter's wile,
nnd others were visiting friends in
Colchester and ute heurtily ol greengages.
His Warning.
"The general saw me devouring
quantities and finally took mc to
task, ' sa'id Mrs. Erskine. " 'Don't
you eat another one of those,' he
commanded. 'Why?' I asked. 'Because you'll get the stomach ache,'
he replied gravely. 'So will you,' I
responded, I'for you have eaten quite
us many as have I.' 'I know thut,'
he replied, 'for I've got it already.
That's why I'm trying to save you.' "
Mrs. Erskine was in Pretoria during part of the Boer war. When Kitchener arrived at Maleking as chiel
of staff for Lord Roberts thc young
officers realized that "soft snaps"
were a thing of the past. They made
no mistake. They were all put to
work. The same was true of the officers at Pretoria. In the latter place
one day Lord Kitchener saw a young
lieutenant sporting a monocle.
"Does your eyesight require you to
wear that,,' ne asked.
"It does," replied the lieutenant.
"Then report to-morrow morning
to the line of communication," ordered the general. "I do not require
men with poor eyesight nt headquarters."
"A. soldier was digging a trench
near Pretoria," said Mrs. Erskine,
"and the general observed him for a
long while. Finally be sent for him.
He asked him if be wasn't ill. The
soldier replied that be was; that ho
felt quite badly. 'Then why don't you
report sick,' demanded the general.
'1 did.' replied the soldier, 'but the
doctor said 1 was lit for duty. Lord
Kitchener sent for the young Burgeon,
ordered him to make an examination
found the soldier was suffering from
typhoid fever, and iBent him to the
hospital. Then he said to the doctor:
'You can apply for your leave home.
1 have no use here for the sort ofu
doctor you are.' "
Mrs. Erskine prophesies that very
little war news will come out of Rng-
land while Lord Kitchener holds his
present position, but says that what
does come with bis sanction will be
