Brussels, Aug. 13.-3:40 p.m.���The first battle in the
open country is reported in the following official communication:
"After having passed the night (Tuesday) in the positions they had reached after their rout yesterday, the
Germans this morning advanced in force towards a point
in our positions which they thought was not held. Our
staff, however, was alert and informed by cavalry reconnaissances, was able to give the necessary orders with
the result that the enemy found their advance checked.
An engagement took place in which our troops were successful. Ten thousand men took part in the fight. This
was the first action of our troops in open country and
their conduct is a good augury for the future. Apart
from this the situation, to all appearances, has undergone
no change.
"As regards our allies, the plan adopted before hand
is being worked out exactly according to program."

Toronto, Aug. 12.���The Ottawa correspondent of the
Toronto News says:
"If the Rainbow is safe off Vancouver, Ottawa is
not aware of the fact. The naval authorities at the capital are today without any direct news from the Rainbow
and are frankly worried over the safety of the Canadian
cruiser with its crew of 450 men, 100 of whom are naval
volunteers from Vancouver and Victoria.
"The Rainbow was reported safe last night, but ap-
parently it was another vessel. It is felt that if the Rainbow were near Vancouver it would communicate direct
with the naval authorities for further orders. Frantic

and the troops which defended the city have been reinforced to the west and resumed the offensive. It is said
that the Belgians have blown up bridges and railroads in

"After having passed the night (Tuesday) in the positions they had reached after their rout yesterday, the
Germans this morning advanced in force towards a point
in our positions which they thought was not held. Our
staff, however, was alert and informed by cavalry reconnaissances, was able to give the necessary orders with
the result that the enemy found their advance checked.
An engagement took place in which our troops were successful. Ten thousand men took part in the fight. This
was the first action of our troops in open country and
their conduct is a good augury for the future. Apart
from this the situation, to all appearances, has undergone
no change.
"As regards our allies, the plan adopted before hand
is being worked out exactly according to program."

Europe's War Breaks

From the financial viewpoint, the
present crisis is remarkable. Iu previous European crises, there has been
widespread financial disaster preceding. On this occasion, the climax has
come not because of great troubles in
the financial community itself, but
from the business and financial world's
district directly affected and th is-
speedily would give place to a feeling
that the invaders must in a short tiim
b�� shot down or captured.
"Nevertheless, It is possible that
such raids might be attempted because many Germans believe that if
one or more of them were successfully carried out a feeling of panic would
be created in this country which
would have an appreciable effect both
here and on the continent."
During tbe Russo-Japanese war
scoies of Russian soldiers wrote home
from their camps in Manchuria, begging to be told some news of the war.
Though they were a part of the fighting armies they knew nothing of the
progress of the  war.
So in Germany and with the world
outside, it iH part of military policy
to conceal the facts, to bewilder and
deceive the enemy with false statements. Not until some great battle
has been fought and won will the cable be allowed to speak truly.

Advertising succeeds when what is advertised
deserves to succeed, and attractive advertising cannot succeed otherwise. To be afraid to advertise is
almost a confession that what one really fears is the
quality of the goods or else the management of the
store or business, as this alone can endanger the
money invested in publicity.
Compared with the difficulty of buying for the
retail trade, the difficulty of advertising the goods
thus bought, so as to sell them, is trifling.  The grocer, the druggist, the men's furnisher and the general
dealer have to estimate, from their own observation
and intuition, what the people of their town are likely
to buy if it is shown���a matter requiring considerable skill.   A mistake will land them with goods for
which there is no market, in some cases with goods
that will go out of fashion if they do not move them
within a limited period.
There is room for all sorts of miscalculations.
The quality may be wrong, prices may be too high,
the buyer may not fit the fancy of the prospective
customers.   Every dealer has to meet and combat
these dangers.   Greater business ability, judgment
and courage are required for this than for merely
letting the public know what goods are on offer.
The retail advertising problem is two-sided.   A
retailer wants to increase his trade with his existing
customers and he also wants to make new customers.
Thoughtful and well-planned advertising will accomplish both ends.   With a good article or a good store
to advertise there is no reason at all why operations
on quite a small scale should not be promptly profitable.
It is a great mistake to think that success can
only be won with a large initial outlay. No beginner
would be justified in ordering full page or half page
advertisements, but this is not a serious handicap.
A $200 advertisement may leave no more profit by
the time it is paid for than a $5 advertisement,
though it will sell more goods.
If a store is well managed the new trade brought
by every advertisement will more or less be permanent. The work is naturally half done when the people are brought to the counter, but they must be
so treated when they come there that they will come
again and keep coming.

council lasl night Chris. Paterson. of
the United Mine Workers of America,
delivered a speech on the miners'
strike on Vancouver island. Among
other things Mr. Paterson mentioned
the fact that this strike was a case
where Joint co-operation of all the
unions in this province was needed.
A letter was received asking for the
vote of the delegates of tiie louncll
on the question of calling a general
strike. The outcome of the ballot
was three men for the strike, while
twenty voted against it. It ig to be
understood that the vote was personal
and not the vote of the different
unions which the delegates represented.

Germany Again Asks Favor of Belgium-
London, Aug. 13.��� 3 a.m.���The Daily Mail says it
learns that on Monday, after the fruitless assault by the
Germans on the Liege forts, the German government
again approached Belgium through Holland as intermediary, pointing out that Germany had no quarrel with
Belgium and no desire to be at war with her, and asked
the Belgian government to reconsider its refusal to allow
the German army to traverse Belgium in order to save
useless expenditure in blood and treasure.
The Belgian government, according to the newspaper,
made reply again refusing to grant the German request.
The Daily Mail says it understands Turkey has assured the British government that the German cruisers
Goeben and Breslau, which are now in the Dardanelles,
will be disarmed, but tnat there is reason to believe Turkey has purchased and intends to put the two cruisers
into commission.

position In medical science gives his

is presented by Dr. Octave Laurent,
surgeon of St. John's hospital. Brussels, who followed the troops ln the
Balkans for 11 months nnd has now
issued a volume on the war In Bulgaria anel Turkey, which is essentially
a treatise on military wounds and
surgery, The work presents the latest evidence on the deBtructivenesa

are entitled to special respect for two
reasons. They are incidental to the
main purpose of the volume, which is
the description and discussion or modem military surgery. The author pre-

The scouts will be ready to do anything required of them. They will fill

"Tii,. chief difficulty among American   -hoe   manufacturers   heretofore,"

'Manufacturing in (Iermany and. in

must have a market for their leather,
now is the chance for American manufacturers to ste'p in and take over

by the facts he has had to deal with
for his main purpose. Laurent is a
surgeon of high standing, author of a
work on clinical surgery now in Its
third edition and Is a member of many
foreign medical societies. His statements are to be given the same weight
as the "by-the-way" remark in a paper
by the late Weir Mitchell, who says
that in his experience in the American
civil war hospitals near Philadelphia
the extreme rarity of bayonet wounds
quite discredited in his mind the traditional horrors of the "cold steel."
Great   Balkan   Losses.
Bulgaria put Into the field during
the two wars more than 300,000 soldiers, drawn from a population of
about 4,300,000. The totals of thc
wars were: Killed, 46,000; wounded,
115.000. The total, 161,000, represented one-third of the effective force of
the whole army, or three per cent
of the entire population of the country. The deaths were wone in twelve
of the whole army, one in four or the
wounded and one in a hundred of the
population. During July, 191.",, 150,-
000 men were killed or wounded on
both sides: and more than half of
these, at least SO,000, fell during .lune
30 to July 5. What these figures mean
for the losses in a war between the
great powers ot Europe is indicated
by Laurent In quoting with approval
the statement of another commentator
on these figures, who says:
"If you put a zero behind each of
these numbers you will have some-
idea of the effective strength of the
armies and the losses that must he
presmed to take place in any war
which would tomorrow set the armed
forces or any two-first class powers of
Kurope on the fighting line. There
would be not less than 1,500,000 dead
and wounded In the course' of the
first  month."
That these grim figures are within
reason seems likely from the fart that
the conditions of conflict in a great
European war would be substantially
those of the Balkan wars. Large-
masses of troops would he in continuous close touch and rifle and artillery fire would be at least as destructive as in the conflicts of last
year. If lhe' suggested million and a
half of casualties per month did not
actually occur there is no reason to
suppose that the percentage of killed and wounded to the force's engaged in large battles would be materially lower than in the Balkan wars.
High  Proportion  of  Killed.
The high proportion of the killed to
the wounded during the Balkan war
is a modern feature that, would be
Hkely to be repeated. Artillery fire,
the use of explosive shrapnel, was responsible for more than half eif the
deaths, but for less than one-fifth of
the wounded. Rifle fire was therefore relatively uneffectlve by its failure to produce those massive destructive effects which follow So swiftly on
the skillful use of artillery rire would
mark the operations of the great Kuropeaii armies, and from that one has
little excuse for forecasting any but
high figures for the killed.
.Many of those wounded by the small
calibre-, high velocity bullets now used
would stand good chances of recovery
with probable small permanent disablement, One Of the surprising tea

poseel to tlie chamber of commerce
that Seattle, through that organization, and acting in conjunction with
other Washington cities, equip and

now convulsing the continent.
In   a   communication   addressed    to

declares  the people of this and other
cities    throughout   the   state   would
gladly  support sunii  a  plan. The rail-;
roads,    he    believes,    would    furnish ;
transportation  cheaply, that the Seattle port, commission would supply the
necessary dock space, whip- the government or some large steamship company   operating   vessels   out   ot   this
port,  would place a ship at  th'* city's
"It seems to me," said Mr. Henry,
"Lhat it would be a tine thing for this
city, through the chamber of commerce, to take the- initiative in loading
with supplies the .-first relief ship.
The people of the state of Washington
would thus have the satisfaction or
landing In Europe the first cargo of
supplies for the starving non-combatant: .
"Ii dues not appear probable that relieving the distn-ss of non-comhatants
would be held an unneutral act: if so,
cargoes could be landed under the
direction of the National Red Cross
society in lhe- diHerent belligerent
countries where the suffering was the
greatest. There' could be no Feeling
or partisanship when children are crying for food."
Mr. Henry pointed out that the recruiting of the' European armies, now
in conflict, will take away from their
families millions of breadwinners and
that the suffering of the dependents
their wives and children will be
"Surely." lie adds, "it is the- duty of
all the other countries throughout the'
world, blessed With peace and alum-
dance, to try and alleviate this distress."

use of the American lied Cross society.

pears to Ik- clear that the Hermans
must have penetrated in the rear of
the French lines along the upper
reaches of the Alsne . This was done
by the German army pressing through
Luxemburg and on to the west and
south of the city, meeting in Lorraine'. The Importance of the move
ment along tho Alsne is commented
upon by the Paris correspondent of
the Daily Mail, who says that "checked both north and south the Hermans
will soon concentrate in the neighborhood of Arlon and advance' in

southeast of Belgium, almost on the
route from Luxemburg to the Alsne.

Drake's Arrival
Brings Comfort
Another Powerful Fighting
Ship Added to Defence
of Atlantic.
Ottawa, Aug. 12.���The arrival of the
powerful fighting ship Drake has
brought considerable comfort to the
Canadian authorities, who have been
anxious about shipping on thc Atlantic coast.
With six efficient cruisers, including the Niobe, scouting the waters of
the North Atlantic, it is hoped that
the German cruisers in these waters
may soon be picked up and the captains of ships relieved of the anxiety
which has bothered tbe in since the
beginning of the war.
There is a good deal of curiosity as
to where the German boats are getting the coal with which to keep
��couting. lt is supposed that their
supplies are sent from American ports
in colliers, and that the' German boats
arc supplied at sea.
On tne Pacific apparently the same
thing ls being done, for there have
been no reports or the German boats
taking in coal in any American port
��in either coast.
Fight At Liege
Again Renewed
f.crmans  Evidently  Determined to Subdue Hostile
Slight Advance Noted at Local Stores
on   Food  Supplies���No Change
Note,   in Meat Line.
Brussels, via London, Aug. 12. ���The
fight  for the possession of the l.iege
forts has started again.   The Germans
erected a bridge al  Llxhe,    for   the
transport nf troops and heavy material and it is possible that au attempt
simultaneously will  be made to cross
the liver Meuse in front of l.iege, for
convoys have been sighted proceeding
toward   Kngis.    The German advance
is being greatly retarded by the forts
-ii  Liege, as they dominate the route
taken   by  the  Germans  and  also  (he
j' tervals  between   the   forts,   thereby
pi even ting the  progress of the artil-
ii ry  and  transport  wagons.
London, Aug. 12.���The struggle between the Belgians and the Germans
for the Liege forts recommenced today. The forts are being fired upon
and are returning the fire of the Ger-
mans with vigor. The German troops
pir��' in movement with the evident intention of crossing the Meuse river.
Convoys have been sighted proceeding
toward Kngis, ii town to the southeast
ot -Liege.
The're has been much agitation and
many persons in New Westminster as
well as throughout the Dominion and
In Kngland. have become firmly convinced thut there Is bound to be a
great scarcity of provisions and a
consequent raise in prices as a result of lbe Kuropeaii war. To be sure
there has been a slight advance in
price in a few of the staples most in
demand, but it will be well for every
householder to disabuse' bis or her
mind of the idea that there will ever
occur a scarcity of the necessities of
life in this section.
For several days there was a fevered anxiety on the part or many New
Westminster residents to lay in a
stock or provisions to last them for
months to come. The unexpected and
uncalled for demand vrry naturally
exhausted the supply on hand, and
with the inevitable' re-suit thai there
was a slight advance in prices,
That such staple- food articles as
flour and sugar have taken a slight
raise in price is an acknowledge-d
tact. Many merchants look on the
excessive- buying of these articles as
unwarranted and that the fact of this
buying is in itself the cause of the
jump in prices in many eases.
At the retail stores flour is now
selling at $K per barrel, or $2 per
sack, while about two weeks ago the-.
price was $" and $1,75.
Sugar was selling at $5.85 per 100
pounds on August 2 and now it is
quoted as $e>. I.ven at the slightly increased price., the public is better off
than last year al this time- when
sugar was iiuoted. wholesale, al $6.25
per 100 pounds, now it is just $1 less.
The wholesale price- of flour In carload lots ii year ago was $6._:.. per
barrel, it has gone up $1.10, making
the price $7.:!.". Tho increase In the
wholesale price of flour is claimec. to
be regulated by the eastern com-
panies and the- local firms are merely
keeping In step with the market.
Potatoes re-main about the same,
$20 per Ion wholesale, or $1.25 to
$1.60 lo the consumer, it is a very
difficult matte-r to give any idea of !
how the prices may run in the near
At the meat markets the prices on
fresh goods ure practically the same
as they have been in the past two
weeks. This alsei pertains to ham
nnd bacon. Canned meats have remained stationary with the exception
of beef and mutton, which are quoted

Posted in Straits���Algerine Coming.
San Francisco, Aug. 12. The Hritish sloop of war Algerine was spoken
Off Gape Mendocino at 5 p.m. yester-
Oiiy by the American coaster Beaver
which arrived herr from Portland today. The Algerine wus cleared for
action and not a sailor's head showed

The Algerine wig-wagged the
Beaver to approach nnd the iwo vessels lay alongside while tin- captains
talked through meagaphones for half

While making port today. Captain
Mason sight! d the Leipzig jo miles
outside the Heads, and heard her
wireless talkiim. The probability is,
as such communication Is strlckly forbidden under the neutrality regulations enforced by the United States
radio inspectors, that the Leipzig was
in touch with tlu- Nurnberg, which it
is now known is also scouting off lhe

A group of students returning to
the University ol California manned

away and gave their college yells for
the Algerine.
More flotsam from some British
warship was thrown up by the tide
today; this time on the northern
chores of the Golden Gate. There was
nothing to indicate what vessel it
came from, and the supposition still
stands that it is debris thrown overboard by ihe Rainbow when Hhe clear-

on   September 8.
Vt sterday  morning  \V,  F.  Hansford
received    notice    from   the    attorney-
general  in  Victoria  to conduct a special Inquiry at the municipal hall. Hurnaby. on September 8, for the purpose
of bearing all claims for compensation
In   connection   with   the   special   survey  made of district lots  2f��. .'in and j
5.1.    This work    was    performed    by
Cleveland   and  Cameron,  of   Vancouver, some two years ago as the result
of   several   discoveries   of  residences I
being located on public roads and certain   streets   running     through     what
should have been private property.
When tbe re survey was made several lots were somewhat, lower in
dimensions and the purpose of this
inquiry is to determine the amount of
compensation so thai all claims and
damages can be adjusted before the
lieutenant governor's signature is at-
