<mr Great Nations Plunge Into War
Xussia and France, Germany and Austria Engage in
Greatest Conflict of the Age���Great Britain Still
Stands Aloof and Her Declaration Will Be Made Today
���War Party in British Cabinet Said to Be in Ascendancy with Churchill at Its Head.
British Capture German Gold
In Transit Across Atlantic
(London, Aug. 2. Four great powers of Kurope, Austria-Hungary, llussia, Prance and (iermany are now engaged in actual warfare, but two of
them, Germany and France, not only have not declared war against each
Other, as far as is known here, but have not even severed diplomatic rela- *
tions. This is despite the fact that Germany's ultimatum to Prance has
either beeu Ignored or rejected.
The explanation of this would appear to be that Germany and France
arc ��-ach seeking to throw upon the other the onus of beginning the war.
In ;'_�����, while the nations of Europe are flying^at each other's throats they
are vicing with each other In protesting their desire to maintain peace and
they repudiate the responsibility for plunging the whole continent into
bloodshed
In this remarkable situation France, according to British opinion, has
tbe trongeat justification. She certainly was the last to mobilize, and
seems to have taken the greatest precautions to avoid frontier collisions.
fin the other hand, Germany in addition to invading French territory
without making a formal declaration of war, has violated the neutrality of
Luxemburg and declines to give any pledge to respect the'Belgian neutrality.
BRITAIN   MUST  JOIN.
Tho efforts of the British ambassador to Berlin to obtain such an under-landing have been wasted.    It is difficult to see how Great Britain can I
avoid  being drawn  into the conflict  to protect  Belgian and  Dutch-neutral-1
ity and on this point Premier Asquith's official announcement in parliament i
is awaited  with  intense anxiety, the  British public being no longer under
any illusions as to the gravity of the crisis which transcends anything in
their experience.    The leant observant man in  London could not fail to be
Impressed with the fact that something tremendous was happening.
Short of actual mobilization, the British government is taking all necessary steps to meet a situation  unprecedented in the nation's history.

LONDON CALM
LoHdon maintained her calm to the last moment tonight. A great crowd
assembled around the government offices at Whitehall awaiting the decision
of the cabinet afc to whether Great Britain would take part in the war but
when it was found that no statement was to be made, the crowd melted
away, only a few groups remaining to discuss whether the cabinet, as some
put it, "had decided to funk or fight."
Premier Asquith will announce (ireat Britain's position in the house
nl' commons tomorrow. Prior to this announcement another cabinet meeting  will be held.

^ The German force which came into
France near Clrey, is reported to have
been repulsed with heavy losses, but
this has not yet been confirmed. Apparently the German army is duplicating the first movement of the

advisers, while expressing their most earnest hone that a peaceful
solution of existing International difficulties may be achieved and
their strong di'sire to co-operate in every possible way for that purpose, wish to convey to His Majesty the firm assurance that, if unhappily war should ensue, the Canadian people are united in a common resolve to put forth every effort and to make every sacrifice
to ensure the integrity and maintenance of the honor of our empire."
This was signed by the Duke of Connaught.
The reply reads: "London, Aug. 2.-- With reference to your tele-
grain of August 1, Ills Majesty's government gratefully welcome
tlie assurance of your government that in the present crisis they
may rely on the whole-hearted co-operation of the people of Canada."
All the cabinet held another session Ibis afternoon, in fact has
been in almost continuous session since the arrival of the prime
minister. All departments of the government are giving to the exist
ing critical situation their most earnest attention and effective action. Many confidential communications have been passing with
the Imperial government. A despatch received early this morning

has adopted the only honorable position open to it and has'
ranged itself beside the motherland.
Canadians feel that if Great Britain becomes involved
in war it will be only in defence of her national honor and
not because of a desire for bloodshed.
There are irresponsible elements in every country
which laugh at the phrase "national honor" without real-1
izing that but for that phrase and what it means, there iThose PrePared t0 Go ��" th�� **n*\

elding to go home while, in the   case '
of Mime more recent arrivals -becoming charges upon the public--the pro-!
cess of deportation is being  resorted I
to.    The   general   idea,   however,     is
against extensive recourse to deporta-1
tion of  people  who were encouraged j
to come to Canada and upon many of;
whom bonuses were actually paid.
Only Want Two Classes.
The   policy   of   the   department   is
shown In a circular just issued and j
| which reads:
"Owing to the overcrowded condi-
[ tion of the labor market and the con-
| sequent existing unemployment, the
present policy of this department in
dealing with immigrant arrivals other
than bona fide agriculturists and female domestics have been the only
classes advised by the Canadian government to come to Canada. On May
26th. 1914, this department, by advertisement and otherwise in the British
Isles and continental Europe, warned intending emigrants, against coui-
ing to Canada at the present time, |
and it is therefore felt that anything
less than the strictest enforcement of
all restrictive immigration regulations
would be unjustifiable and a hardship
upon the unemployed already here.
That a detained emigrant, or one asking tor a permit to come forward, has
a promise of employment, cannot
properly he urged as a sufficient reason for his admission if rejectable,
because if he secures work it is by
taking a position which otherwise
ought to have been filed by some cf
our present unemployed, amongst
whom every trade and occupation is
already   represented "
Conditions Only Temporary.
The department view is strongly
to the effect that the present conditions, due to the exceptional causes
cited is wholly temporary and that in
due course matters will adjust themselves The time when half a million people will come to our shores
again in one year must be distant,
because the abnormal demand for ordinary labor in recent years on railway construction may net be repeated
but, on the other hand, fundamentals
are sound. As many prospective farmers are coming now as at any time iu
the halycon days of a more predominant prosperity. This fact, together
with considerations of what their
coming means in aggregate wealth
and in energy for the development of
the country and its production, ls the
best assurance of the maintenance of
those sound conditions which are the
stable basic foundation of national
growth and advancement.

ENO'S "FRUIT SALT"

Ottawa, Aug. 2.���The Royal Naval Reserves have

The Royal Naval Reserves are officers and seamen of
the merchant service who have taken a special course of
training in the British navy. They are scattered all over
the world. This is the first time that such a call has ever

The war In Kurope and the probability of Kngland being dragged into
the tight will likely affect the annual
inter-provincial shoot to be held this

opinion vaiced in militia circles it is
very unlikely they will make the trip,
the call to arms taking precedence.

enough recruits to bring the 104th

war fever gripped the city yesterday
and there is every probability of a
loyal response to the first call which ;
gives promise of being followed by a
mere important one, that of organizing on a war looting. The peace

The    Ghost's   face    now     resembled
beet root.   I still knelt, but the words
I  hurled  at that  limelight  man  were
j not 6U3-I as befitted my attitude.   He
paid  no attention  to  me, he  did  not
understand   a   word   ot   English,   but I
went  on  gently  and  earnestly   twiddling bis colored lights on thc face of
the Ghost as though he  were a  coon i
ghost about to burst  into ragtime.
Well, at the end of t'.ie scene we
gathered round our limelight man. In
time the explanation came out It '
seems that native Burmese plays are
a jumble of all sorts of things singing, dancing, jokes, comedy, without ,
much plot, and that whenever things
on the stage seem to be hanging fire
a bit. it is the duty of the limelight
man to liven things up a bit by twiddling  the  colored   lights  abou;.
Our  limelight   man   was   almost   in:
tears.    He  felt   very  hurt.     He  gave
us to understand lhat he had thought j
the Gliost a trifle dull, and wanted to;
eive   him   some   help.    Iff   had   only
wanted to make "Hamlet" hum.

Summer Advertising
Is Especially
Profitable
Reasons Are   Given   by  "Economic
Advertising"
"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.

IS GERMANY REPEATING
V
OLD PUN Of CAMPAIGN I
.	
Movement of Her Troops Bears Striking Resemblance to
A(fcahM. of Forty-four Years Ago When She Reached
French Capital After Eight Months of Fighting���
Said to Rely on Fact That Russia Is Not Ready.
	
Washington, Aug. 2.���Development*
m th,. -X_r_n4_��fc. ...aampaign against
t r ance. ifflBM** the army autf here
with the Blihilarity of the German advance, aa recorded in today's te*-
patches, to the move made exactly 44
> ear** ago, at the beginning of the
_>>��nco-Prus8ian war, with the important difference that then it waa thb
��reat second urmy corp* of France
which took the initiative, crossing the
border to attack the Germans at Saar-
brucken only to receive a stunning
check.
By a singular coincidence it was on
August . that the battle of Saarbruck-
eu took place. It was followed by the
withdrawal of the French army under Bazaine to Met?., where it was
s. but up for many months, only to be
obliged in the end to capitulate to the
t-erman  forces.
The fact that the German staff has
cbof-n. again to strike at France in
the verj' Bame place where the victorious campaign of IS70 was initiated
has led the experts here to tbe conclusion that it is Germany's intentkit.
to rt peat closely the strategic move-
lueriis whicli were crowned with the
capture of the French capital eight
months later.
Not the Same Now.
Rut the observers here are doubt-
Tui of the success of such a plan at
present. It is pointed out that the
French army Is a very <Mffereut fighting instrument from the ill-organized
and insufficiently equipped force
which   went out   to defca.   forty-four
that the French stragegists should not
have made certain against the repetition of the terrible mistakes which led
Bazuine's army to its downfall.
The German Side.
On the other hand, the Germans
have I'or years practiced on paper and
a& far as possible in field manoeuvres
the movements to be made ou everj
square of the war map. They are well
aqcuainted with the strength of tho
French fo...esses designed to prevent
their advance; their system is as near
perfect as human for. sight can make
il and if they fail now at the outset
it wiil not be for luck 01 themosl
perfect equipment that the work of a
qaurter of a century has been able
to devise.
Commenting on today's reports of
tht; advance on Clrey. military experts
expressed the opinion that if the advance is the actual beginning of an
j invasion ol French territory it is believed that the purpose of the German
staff is to make a desperate and formidable attempt to crash through the
rFench lines of defense before they
can be fully formed and organized
and make a lightning-like campaign
against. Paris itself with the greater
part of the German army.
It is believed here that the German
idea is that this can be done before
.'ranee's ally. Russia, can actually
mobilize and'get hor vast army under
way to attack Germany on the eastern frontier, and it is Eaid that the
Germans have the hist of Information
as to the real resources and weaknesses of the Russian troops and are
confident     tha:     the  lack  of  proper
years ago.
In artillery alone, it is said, the
French are greatly superior to the transport facilities and equipment are j
Germans and, while the levies are per- j certain to make the task of moblliza- !
haps not as well set up anl smart tion a very slow and Imperfect under-1

It was also pointed out that the

in  lhe  tuB,  but  are  now  proceeding
the small Servian army can completely absorb the latent offensive powers
of the Austrians. It follows as a natural development of that plan of campaign, that, if the German onset on
