chapter in history which never wlll be silencd in its condemnation of the
Kaiser William's inherited policy of "blood and Iron."
Overweening militarism and brutal excesses committecd for years with
impunity, even on their own countrymen, have left the German officers of
today little better than the ferocious Wallenstein and the fiendish Tilly. Tbe
sack of .Magdeburg is being repeated a dozen times in patriotic Belgium,
evidently with the intention of leaving on that unfortunate little country
scars which will long be remembered, and Irrespective of whether or not
military tactics demand such acts.
The lesson of Alsace and Lorraine has been lost on Wilhelm. The futility of such a policy as was exemplified and held up to the scrutiny of a
���liorked world in the Zabern incident has not Impressed itself on the wilfully blind kaiser and he rides to his unrighteous war with the implied boast
of Attila the Hun, "Where my horse once treads the grass will-never grow."
In the end he or his people must pay, for the cause of right also has
���ii Its side in this war the added advantage of heavier battalions.

towards Liege as possible while the
Germans were checked there.
Hopes Germans Will Attack.
One war correspondent who had
seen what the allies were doing in
the way of preparations to give the
Germans battle at this point, wrote
despite the censorship, that while in
the name of humanity bs hoped the
Germans would not attempt to assault
the allied position in the angle of
the Namur, as a friend of the allies
he hoped  the Germans would
to entrench themselves all along their
lines. Every bridge across the Meuse
and Sambre that has-not been blown
up has been mined and covered with
batteries of quick firers and machine
guns and ample time has been allowed
them to entrench themselves according to the most modern mgethods.
Germans Outnumber Allies.
The Germans presumably outnumber the allies, but how much of their
forces they can use to assault the allied position in the Sambre-Meuse
angle Is not known. At least one army
corps must be guarding Antwerp and
another if not two more are in occupation of northern Belgium. Two more
would be necessary for the guarding
of tbe line of communication through
Liege to the German frontier, so out
of the 16 army corps, which are said
tbe channel.    But the war office  re
mains mute on the subject. ,
Fears1 of an aerial raid by GemMy
are entertained in many quarters.
With the Germans near Ostend tbey
may be close enough to the Knglish
coast to use their Zeppelins in a hazardous attempt and there are few in
England who doubt they may make
the attempt.
Hut whether a Zeppelin would be
able to do much daniage is still one
of t'.ie mysteries of the war. They j
were unable to Injure the Belgian j
forts at Liege, although frequently
tried. They proved impotent in an,
attempt to wreck the Longwy forts. I
The heads of the war office profess
to believe they would likewise prove
impotent over England even if tbey
were able to overcome the air currents
of the Channel.

London, Aug. 23���A battle for trade
is now in progress in Great Britain.
Manufacturers are making frantic efforts to secure a portion of the trade
resulting from the cancellation of all
German patents. This step has been
under consideration by the official
board of trade, a government organisation. Any manufacturer who satisfied tlie officials of his intention to
manufacture a patented German product is now making haste to pui
things in motion. The threatened
shortage of drugs, dies and patent
medicines is about over with, while
German aspirin, which the German*
have had control of for many yearB,
Is now being replaced by an equally
effective British equivalent, satisfactory to the doctors.
Americana are not slow in taking
advantage of this situation and are
reported to be muking plans to capture the lost German trade with Britain.
The Westminster Trust Company will act as
your agent while you are away serving your country

BATTLE LINE -Bearing out the forecasts of military experts as express-1
ed by the French government in re-1
cent  official    announcements,    tbe
main   battle line of the Germans ln
Belgium   us opposed  to  the  allies,
is narrowing down from a front extending  over  seventy-five   miles   to]
one   about   twenty   miles   long,   ex-.
tending  from   Namur  to  Charleroi.j
This,  of  course.,  floes   not     Include;
separate   undertakings   which   may
be attempted by the Germans, such |
as the  Investment of Antwerp and
the   suspected   plan   to     strike     at
France  by  way of  Oudenarde  and
the valley of the Schelde.    The announcement  that  a great   fight has
started along the valley of the Riv
er Meuse between Namur and Charleroi   would   seem   to   indicate   that j
the  opposing   commanders   ure   try-;
lng  to  gain  advantages  by   concen j
tratlon in forces at a given point, aj
plan  which  was outline as possible
from  Paris a couple of weeks ago.
Should this prove the case, the battle now said  to be In progress will
decide whether or not the Germans
arc to be checked seriously 111 their
efforts to advance on France by the
Mense   river  or   whether   they   will
pain   their  desired  end  of  entering
the republic to the west of Sedan,
where  they   forced  the  French  emperor to his  knees at the  end  of
last Franco-Prussian war.    lt also is
possible that the Germans, if sue-
csslul   lu  both   attempts   to   penetrate   France   by   fie   Schelde     and
.Meuse rivers, would unite these two
Invading armies on French soil and
prepare for a dash on Paris.    Al any
rate, should  the kaiser's troops succeed   In   both   there efforts,  the  allies  would  be  in  a  precarious position with one force of the enemy at
Iheir backs and another before Ihem,
to   say   nothing  of  the   strong  detachment now traversing    northern
Belgium  towards  Antwerp.
man frontier formed by the Vosges
mountains   is    authority    for    the
statement  that   now   the   passes of
tliis range are in the hands of the
French a German advance there ls
definitely  checked    and    rendered
Impossible.   France struck early byway of the Vosges ln Alsace and at
this date is said  to be entirely  in
command ot the only three passes
by which the Germans could move
on  the republic  in  that    territory.
Further, on the French side, these
mountain defiles are said to be fortified and refortified for miles and
that they narrow down to extremely ciamped quarters on the western
eiKvmities.     A.s   an   indication     of
the importance of the French operations  In  this   territory   it  is  opted
that (.leneral Joftree. coniinandei-in-
chlef of the French anay, has been
almost   constantly   in   t iat     region
since  the declaration  of  hostilities.
"With tbe Vosges passes secure, the
allies are In a position to lurn morel
definite attention t.i stemming the
German   advance   through   Belgium,
where most of the real fighting lias
so   far   taken   place,   probably   be-1

RVSSIAN ADVANCE -'While the bulk
of the attention has been centered
on the German advance through Belgium and French operations iu Alsace, reliable reports now to hand
indicate that, with Russian mobilization well initiated, the czar's
troops have commenced a general
advance against Austria and Germany along the whole eastern frontiers of both of these countries.
This would indicate that the Hussions with their first line of army
corps kept standing in peace times
on a good foo.iug of one million
and one-half men. have commenced
to work in earnest against the two
warring powers of the Triple Alliance and t'.iat an actual advance is
being Instituted along a front close
en right hundred miles, stretching
from Ko'onica on the Humanian-
Austrian border, through Galicia,
Russian Poland and aKst Prussia
to Memel on thc shores of the Unit ic
sea, where there probably Is heavy
massing of Russian troops in the
neighborhood of the great Herman
fortress Of Konigsberg. Back of this
first Russian line of a million and
a half of men there are forming
four million other troops under the
command of Grand Duke Nlcholai-
