War Will Cost $54,000,000 a Day
War statisticians estimate that if the Kuropeaii conflict becomes
general lt will cost $54,000,000 a day.
A general European war would mean that 20,000,000 men would
be called to arms. Of these 10,000,000 would be sent to the front or
otherwise put Into active service. The dally expense of such a bodv

his wife, is making his way home to
Loudon after an extended visit to
Australia. Commander Kei|iclc is
connected with the Peninsula and

of London, which firm operates the

He is at present staying with his

This was Commander Kenrick's
Hist visit to Canada and according to
comment passed by him after a tour
of the city, New Westminster appears
to be well holding her own with the
cities on the coast. The visiting party
was the guests of J. R. Agar during
the afternoon, motoring to Fraser
Mills and the Colony Farm, the immense lumber operations at the former place being a source of wonderment to them, while the splendid
dairying at the government experimental farm came in for much favorable comment.

ences must not prevent our presenting a united front in the council of
the world."
He added a word in behalf of Sir
Kdward Carson, tlle I'lster leader, to
the same effect.
The spectacle of a solid front in
support of the government by all sections of the Irish members iu the
house was even more remarkable than
the conciliation of Mr. Asquith and
Mr. Bonar Law. The traditional sentiment of the home rulers that England's extremity is Ireland's opportunity was buried when tbe Irish members murmured "hear, hear" to the
premier's plea for unity.
Many Measures Sidetracked.
Not  only  the  home  rule question
but all measures likely to rouse party
or international hostilities have been
sidetracked.    They include  the naval
vote which Inevitably excites discussion of Germany's policy, and the vote
for   imperial   defense.     Nevertheless,
there is a strong, although apparently
a minority feeling that Great Britain
should maintain neutrality come what I

Should the present high pressure negotiations for

what would undoubtedly be the greatest war of history,
the blame would have to be laid at Germany's door.
Alone and unsupported, Austria never would have
deliberately forced a conflict on Servia in the full knowledge of Russia's opposition to such a course. Russia regards herself as the protector of all the Slavs and Austria was fully cognizant of that fact when she practically
backed Servia into a corner from which there was no escape except by an appeal to arms or through a sacrifice
of the national honor.   The Servians refused to make the

Similar tactics were employed several years ago when j tiionties. ^ t t
Austria absorbed Bosnia and Herzegov inia and they were I
effective then because Russia was feeling weak, but the
situation has changed since that date. Russia has gained in strength, the Triple Entente with France and Great
Britain gives her confidence and in scratching the Muscovite the Teuton is likely to strike a Tartar.
It is known that the republic of France is bound to
support Russia almost as strongly as Germany is tied to I much of" the

in doubt and, in all likelihood, will remain so till the lion
is ready to act.
Great Britain, however, has followed a clear and
straight course from the beginning of the crisis. She has
stood out for peace. She swallowed her pride, as only
an admittedly great nation can, when she risked the rebuff she received from Germany in proposing a London
conference to settle the differences.   It is remarkable
that, while Germany refused this offer of   mediation,

On the Witness Stand.
A little flaw in his statements ruins the evidence of the witness. It may be a slight exaggeration, but the opposing lawyer seizes it and uses
it to impress upon the jury that this witness is
rot reliable.
The Advertiser to-day is on the witness stand.
If he makes mis-statements he is judged accordingly and his entire advertising is mistrusted.
Wide-awake business men realize this. They
tell thc truth in their advertisements; not because
they are better than they used to be; but because
they have learned that it pays.
The advertising columns to-day contain real,
dependable information that will save money for
you if you follow them intelligently.

D. D. WILSON, Manager.
By D. Maxwell Merry
About two million families in Canada use every
day, at least, one domestic product or another, which
is advertised. That is to say, they wash with a certain soap, drink a certain tea, eat a certain breakfast food, take a certain medicine or go to bed on a
certain mattress, when they would have used a different soap, tea, food, medicine or mattress, if the
particular kind which, in fact, they do use, had never
been advertised.
But not one of these two million families habitually use any one of these or of the hundreds of
other advertised articles because it was advertised.
The reason is quite different. These advertised articles are used because the users like them.
If a woman once tastes a tea that she does not
like, no amount of advertising will make her drink
it again. If a woman washes her face with a soap
that injures her complexion, advertising will never
induce her to change her opinion in regard to that
particular soap.
You can introduce your goods by advertising
that it is the quality of the goods themselves that
keeps the door open to them.   Thus we arrive at a
bed rock.    It is the merit of the goods advertised
which sells the goods.    Clever advertising: wiJJ seJI
good merchandise, but no advertising will sell twice
to the same person merchandise that is not, or is
not believed by that person to be, worth the money.
Here we come to a curious mistake held by people whose own practice should show them their error. I mean the common idea that advertising
will sell everything���that it is noisy advertising and
not merit that sells the goods.
As I have frequently stated in these articles, the
simple explanation of an article and the special features that are likely to appeal to the public is the
best advertising that can be used. Big words and
resounding phrases may look good to the advertiser, but they don't sell goods. The shortest words
and the shortest sentences tell the tale of any product better than the most academic story that could
ever be written.

will call a general election this autumn, appealing to the country for immediate financial aid in defense of
the empire.
Situation   Officially   Discussed.
"Col. Sam Hughes returned from
Lindsay today and summoned a meeting of the mil ii iu council. While no
official statement cf purpose of the
conference was handed out, It waa
learned that it was for the purpose of
discussing the Kuropeaii situation.
"On all sides, the attitude of Canada, in case Britain Is Involved, ia
being discussed. The prevailing sentiment on all sides is that If the empire gets in the fight, Canadians cannot remain out of it. That Canada
Is at war when the empire is at war
s an axiom or principle accepted by
both  political  parties.
Offer Troops to Britain.
"Under just what circumstances tho
Canadian government would offer her
troops to Britain Is a matter for the
government to say. There is ilie precedent of the South African war, al-
though the present crisis would be of
more vital importance if England
were   compelled   tO   interfere."
The ECvenlng Citizen says: "It is Improbable lhat in the event of that
emergency an extra session of parliament would bo summoned as there is
always statutory authority for such
unforsoen outlays, but it would likely
mean a fall session of parliament in
place of the announced intention of
having it  early In January.

Dupont Prize.
Clarence McLean, shooting from the
lH-yard line, waa the winner of the
first shoot of the season for the C.
A. Welsh trophy last evening on the
Lulu Island grounds of the New Westminster Gun club when he broke 23
out of !isi birds and then beat Alec
Turnbull in the shoot-off of the tie
on the mi_��*-und-out system, as the
doughty manager of the senior amateurs, shooting from the 18-yard line,
made the same score as Clarence did.
"Cariboo" Bill Turnbull, (ieorge (ireen
und Hill Maiden each broke 21 birds
and tied for second place, though the
Cariboo boy shot at 17 yards. (Ireen
at  18 and  Hill at 19 yards.    Ur. Mac-
Sween and Jimmy Price smashed 20
birds each and made third place, while
Frank Trapp was fourth with 19. Price
shot from 19 yards, MacS.veeii from
IH and Trapp from 17.
Alec Turnbull really  wa..  the  hero
of  the  evening,  for  not  only  did  he,
give  McLean  a  merry  chase  for  the!
Welsh trophy, but be  won  the shoot;
for the Dupont trophy with 15 straight
It  is a curious  fact  that    Turnbull's
score   n the Welsh trophy is an exact
duplicate  of  the  score   made  by   the i
leader  of   the   Hoyals   in   the   match
���boot with Cloverdale a week ago, as'
he went 21 birds straight and missed
tiie  22nd  and  24th  birds.    Following

Circle I", vs. the Columbus is the
baseball attraction at Queen's park
tonight with tbe chances favoring
Kraser Mills in its fight to capture
tbe league championship. So far this
season the Columbus aggregation has

against the lumber shovers, although
with the season fast drawing to a
close, the tallender. are liable to
spring a surprise.

until the last moment, although Leep- ]
er is about due to make a come-back
in   the    box.    With    good    weather!

Wied, threw a new-
light on the situation in Albania, during a recent visit he paid to Budapest
on his way to Durawo. The count,
who was the guest of Baron Szentker-
eszthy. referred to several matters
which were not previously known to
the general public.
The reports which have been circulated concerning the events in Albania, from the time of the uprising,
were calculated to give the impression
that I'rince William's only motive for
taking refuge on an Italian warship
was the fear of being personally
It has even been stated that the
emperor of Germany had reproached
the prince with not having shown sufficient personal courage on this occasion.
The facts now disclosed, however, place the prince in quite a different light, and are not particularly
favorable to Italy, according to the
opinion of Count Schoenburg-Hart, n-
stein On the night in question, he
states, I'rince William did not in reality desire to take refuge on the battleship, but insisted on remaining in
Durazzo. Every possible argument
was then used by the Italian diplomatic
representative, as well as by others
who represented the interests of that
country. '�����'���
Finally, artifice was resorted to, and
what was, in reality, only a reluctant
visit to the battleship was construed
into a flight from the palace In Durazzo. The moment the prince learned that he had been Induced by false
pretenses to take this step, he suspected Italian Intrigue, and returned
to his palace. The count says that
it is quite certain that Prince William will never leave Durazzo until
the crisis is over, unless he i.s actually
forced to do so. _,

The patient, a man of 40 years, had
lost the sight of the eye through an
i.ijury several years ago and the eye
'erently became inflamed and endangered the sight of the other eye.
Enucleation or removal of the eyeball
was performed and the gold sphere
was inserted, covered with the outer
membrances and stitched into place.
The muscles which move the eyeball
and which had been severed during
the operation, were also stitched into
their proper position. The surgeons
expect the operation wound to heal
ln about three weeks. The glass eye

there is little room for doubt that the

matters.     They   have   rubbed   British
Columbia's fur t'ae wrong  way.    Like
all other fur.  rubbed  under such circumstances, it will fly.  There are international   ethics    and     honor    and

of the Scotch heather, but has a family   connection   and   standing   of   its
own   well  recognized    by    botanists,
and  is nearly  allied   to  the heath    f
the  British  Isles.    The  booklet gives
an   interesting  account   of  the   locality   from   which   the     souvenir     was
gathered, Simpson pass, about thirty
miles south of Banff, and of some of
the   legends   and    stories    connected
with  the heather in other lands.  Its
main purpose, however, is to call the |
attention of Canadians to the national i
parks   of  the  Dominion,  not  only   to
the   attractions   they   offer   to   those
Who are able to visit them, but also!
to   their   value   Ih   the   national   life.
Their commercial    potentialities    are
somewhat     startling.     It   is     pointed
out that owing to the increasing mod- i
ern  taste  for travel,  striking scenery'
has become one Of the most valuable
Sources of revenue a  nation can  pos-
I sess.    Tlie tourist revenue of Swltzer- i
i land   per  year  is  placed  at $150,000,- ]
, 000.   that   of   France   as     $ .00.000,000. i
j that of Italy at over $100,000,000. The j
. sum which Americans annually spend j
! abroad  is estimated  at the enormous
total of |500,000,000,   It would appear'
J therefore, that the creation of nation-!
ial  parks,  which   are  one  of t'ne  best j
j means Of attracting and providing for I
| tcurisl   travel,   may   well   be   consid- |
ered a.s it is now being consider! d  in
I the I'nited States, as a "solid business |
i proposition."
Reservoirs   of   Vitality.
Il    is   on   other   grounds   than    the I
j commercial,  however,  that  the parks
j lay   claim   to   recognition.     Chief   of
these  is an aid to produei"" efficient j
citizen...     These     great     natural   re-
serves  .ire  reservoirs  of  vitality   tor
thp  race.    As an  antidote to the  ills j
of   over-civilization   and   the   complex
life   of  modern   cities,  they   offer   the
opportunity  for life in  the wilderness!
and the best sort of recreation where
Irish air. Bunshlne and beautiful  natural scenery are combined.    The problem*, of the preservation of the vitality!

of    parks, playgrounds and recreation 1
In this respect Is each year being giv-!

ence of the parks Is also touched

Summer Advertising
Is Especially
Reasons Are   Given   by  "Economic
"It is keeping everlastingly at it���the quiet, continuous brand of publicity that worries its way through to
success in the long run and it is difficult to find any
justification for breaking the continuity of advertising
during hot weather.
"Clothes have to be worn and the necessaries of life
provided for, and almost every article with the exception
of purely seasonable goods is in equal demand in the summer as in the winter.
"Then, again, in the summer people do not work so
hard���there is more leisure time, and just because they
have more time for reading it is logical to state that they
have more time for reading advertising.
"To the modern housewife any respite from the thraldom of stuffy stores and glaring pavements is welcome.
She reads the advertising columns of the daily paper, and
makes it her shopping guide, especially in the summer
missing at this time is losing momentum which will take
considerable time and expense to regain at a later date."
The News reaches the permanent, earning classes, arriving in the home in the morning. In the home it stays
during buying hours, the newest edition of buying guides.
It contains the merchants' last announcements before the
buying of the day is done.

Ottawa. July 30.���Col. Sam Hughes, I
minister   of   militia,   came   back   in !
a  hurry trom Lindsay to the capital
this morning and was ln conference :
with  the officers of the department
at noon today.    Though nothing was ;
divulged as to the character of   thn
conference it la generally understood
tbat the imminence of war in whicli I
<. reat   Britain   may   be  a   participant !
and in consequence of which. Canada !
may he called upon to lend assistance I |1(,,.p
as in 1. or, was a topic fnr consideration. Col. Hughes seen afterwards
by your correspondent was extremely
reticent and declared that be had
nothing to say for publication. When
asked what rauada might be called
U-Kiu to do in case Kngland was a
Pdrticipant, he remarked: "Have you
any reason lor believing that Kngland will participate ?    What Is   the
First Great Naval Engagement of a

���American Navy Would Remain
Washington. July I.O.���The possibility that Japan might become involved In a general war should her
ally. Kngland. be drawn into the
threatened vortex in Kurope, was discussed  today  in    diplomatic    circles
The existing treaty of alliance be-
'ween .ireat Britain and Japan, signed
In 1905. and. renewed in 1911. provides that the two countries shall
support each other in the event of'an
attack or aggressive action against
each other by a foreign power.
From time to time there have been
rumors of secret clauses greatly ex-
later! news this morning    about    the
situation ?"
Cabinet Meet ng Held.
Government officials generally   ar��
not inclined   to   discuss   possibilities
until   the   Kuropeaii situation has be-1 the Japanese
���come more clearly defined.    Premier
Borden is still holidaying at Muskoka,
tint  it is expected  here that  he may,:

pected  if the  war situation  become., i
.iciite.    Hon. (Ieo. K. roster is acting
prime minister, and there are    in addition   present,  Hon.   llruno    Nantel,
Hon. Louis Coderre, Hon. Sam Hughes
and  Dr.  Reid.    The  first meeting of
thi   cabinet  for  two  weeks  was lielrl
this morning.
Parliament May Be Called.
Should the situation    develop    into :
one in which Oreat Britain will be an
active  participant,    it    is considered!
possible that a special session of parliament  may  be called    to    consider ���
what    part    Canada    sliall    take    in
A November session at least, it   is '
* believed, may be looked for.    In 1899
parliament sat shortly after the out-1
break   of  hostilities   in   South   Africa.
..overnor    general's    warrants    were
paased  before    parliament  met,    and
these were afterwards ratified for the [
s.mding  of  contingents.    Taking  the .
view  that    when  Britain  is at    war'
Canada is at war, there is little doubt
tha*  .he same action will be taken by
the present government, iii the event
of  lhat  contingency  as was taken in
1899.     Strong  hopes    are    expressed
hep . however, that    the area of Uos-
tili'.i's will be locali_.ee'., though fears
tending the scope of the convention,
and making it apply to hostilities outside of the far east, but the existence
of any such extra provisions is unknown to the state department or to
 embassy here.
Depend on Developments.
The possibility of japan being
drawn into any war that might in-
I voire Great Britain with Germany or
Austria or Italy is believed here to
hinge entirely upon navy development
in the far east. In those waters are
many vessels of Kuropeaii powers engaged in looking after the interests
of their citizens resident in China,
Korea and Japan. Just as the first
blow in the naval war between the
I'nited States and Spain In IS. ... was
unexpectedly struck In the far away
Phtlllplnes, k is suggested the first
clash between European powers may j
occur in the China sea. Am' in case !
the British fleet there should find itself engaged in hostilities with the
German and Austrian and Italian vessels, many believe Japan would be
called upon to aid her ally.
War Vessels in  Far East.
Aside from Japan's navy, the international far eastern fleet  is made up
largely of cruisers.    Many of the vessels,  however,    are    more    powerful
than  any   of  the   American   warships
tbat   followed   DewPy's   pennant   into i
Manila bay sixteen years ago.   Oreat i
Britain, Including    her    Kast    Indian
squadron,   has   two   battleships,   two
large cruisers, four light cruisers, and
thirty-five smaller    craft.    Including |
i gunboats,   destroyers,  torpedoes     an.. \
.arc expressed to the contrary.

The American navy in the Phillip-

cruisers, ten gunboats, two monitors,
five destroyers and a number of Aux- I

culture, has announced that gold med-1
als have been awarded to the Iiritish :
Columbian exhibit at botli the Winnipeg and Brandon shows. A. I.ang,
the provincial exhibition commission-j
er, reports a splendid attendance at
the Winnipeg show, running up to;
H.,000 a day. He also states that the
������xhibit of finished woods of this
province has attracted a large number of inquiries thai should lead to
increased business, manufacturers'
prices being asked for in a number
of cases. The fruit exhibit, as always,
was magnificent and the cynosure of
���-���very eye. During the Winnipeg
show Mr. Lang delivered twenty-four
forty-minute lectures on the province
in a room next to the exhibit. These
��� iridresses were invariably well attended by audiences which took tbe very
keenest interest in the beautiful and
.elaborate moving pictures of the In-
UStries of British Columbia taken by
tt. A. Sintzenlch.

has forbidden newspapers or agencies

such boards are responsible for the

Reporters of one Philadelphia newspaper have been ejected from the

outside points while the telephone
service has been cut off to prevent
the ticker company from supplying
