Optimistic Feeling Shown at
Provincial Meeting Held
in Victoria.
Public Works and Railway Construction Will Be Completed���Banks
Will Give Credit.
Victoria, Aug. 25.���A meeting of
the provincial executive and prominent citizens was held here today to
consider the conditions in the province. The greatest feeling of confidence was shown and the feeling
was general that there should not be
the slightest feeling or apprehension
as to the future.
The provincial officials announced
that the various public works that
had been commenced In various parts
of the province would be continued
and carried to completion.
Word waa received from the various
transcontinental railway lines to the
effect that just as much of the work
as could possibly be undertaken would
be completed. This will give employment to a large number of workmen,
and it la not considered possible tbat
any great hardship will result to the
working classes as a result of the
war.
Representatives of the banks announced that credits would be granted
all legitimate business as before the
declaration of war, and lhat as far
as the banks were concerned business
could be conducted as in the past. It
was strongly intimated, however, that
there would be no money forthcoming
for speculative purposes, and that new
enterprises, which might be in the
least doubtful, would be frowned
upon.

the mother country.
"Our expeditionary force has taken the field on the French northwest
frontier and advanced in the neighborhood of Mons. in Belgium. Our troops
already have been for thirty-six hours in rontact with the superior forces
of the German invaders. During that lime they maintained the best traditions of the British soldier and behaved with the utmost gallantry. The
movements they have been called upon to execute have been those which
demand the greatest  steadiness of a soldier and  skill  In the commanders.

Active preparatlona for tbe enlistment cf another active service contingent from New Westminster and
the Kraser valley will probably be under way before another day, according
to advices received from Ottawa.
I Since the departure of the first force
from the local regiment, tbe 104th
has been brought back to full peace
strength, in fact according to one of
tbe officers stationed at Queens park,
more men are on the rolls than the
requisite peace strength.
Yesterday some fifteen would-be recruits reported at the park anxious
to have uniforms and equipment doled
out to them, but their names and addresses were taken and .a promise
made to give them first chance when
enlistment again proceeds.        '
Little difficulty is expected in raising a similar force from New Westminster and district to that which left
for Valcartier on Saturday. The fine
going-away spirit of the men coupled
with the latest news of the gravity of
the situation in Europe has stirred up
many during the past few days and
enquiries are continually being made
to the commanding officer at the park
as to when the next chance will be
given.
Before Major Coote left for the island in charge of a section of the
regiment he Intimated there was a far
different feeling among the troops
aince they were mobilised and that
when tbe time arrived for calling out
additional volunteers he felt sure that
a response equal to tbe 150 men who
departed on Saturday would be willingly made.
Yesterday enlistment started for
overseas service in Vancouver, the
officers there taking it for granted
that a call for a second contingent
would be made by the Ottawa authorities.
Contrary to previous reports, the
second detachment of the regiment
will not leave for Vancouver Island
this morning, no orders having been
received for such a move up to late
last night.

French Leave
Mulhausen
Paris,  Aug.  25.���Paris  Is  in  gloom
today.   Tbe admission by the war office  that   the   Germans   have   forced
the allies to withdraw from Belgium
and have captured Namur and Lune-
ville,  has  caused  a  wave of fear  to
sweep over   Paris.    Burning  villages
and heaps of slain lying on Belgian
soil around Charleroi show the ferocity with which the allied French and
British   troops  opposed  the  wave  of
Germans   that   forced  them   back  on
the French   frontier.    For ten  hours
the  tide or battle  ebbed  and  flowed
around   Charleroi,   the    town     being
taken  and  retaken  six times  before
the allies withdrew.   Part of the town
was wrecked and the villages of Ma-
chinnes, Monceau, Chatelet and Lan-
delies   burned.    Pierce   hand-toAand
fighting took place at Charleroi. The
French were the first to occupy the
town, but were driven out by the bombardment of the Germane.    The Germans then entered by the left bank
of the river Sambre but within a short
time  the  allies  had arrived  and  the
conflict was renewed.
411 Available Troops Are at

Paris. Aug. 26.-1:10 a.m.-The war
office has issued the following official announcement:
"The commander-in-chief, requiring

of occupied territory'. Mulhausen has

THE POMP OF WAR IS GONE.
If, as many profess to believe, one of the first results of the present
colossal conflict raging"In Kurope will be a great revulsion of public reeling
against war and measures taken to preclude the possibility of international
hostilities In the future, these things will be brought about for many reasons
and not alone on account of the terrific toll of human life and loss of property Involved in modem warfare.
As battles are fought and campaigns waged today, all tbe ancient glamor
and pomp of arms have been obliterated and the strife has become such a
business-like, cold-blooded matter of wholesale slaughter that 'humanity as
a whole is bound to revolt.
In the present instance the British nation, leading the world ln civilization, foresaw the horrorB which war entailed and shrank from plunging Into
the conflict, not because she was afraid of those horrors, but because she
felt tbat her duty to the human race forced her to strive for peace till all
hope of attaining it was absolutely gone. Britain is fighting ln defence of
the defenceless and she will not call halt till her victory Is so decisive that
it wlll remove once for all the menace of military despotism which threatens
the world. But, In spite of all thia, Hritain abhors war and the fact that
she so abhors it and is going to press the present conflict to an unqtiestloh
able end guarantees to Germany the terrible certainty of the old word that
those who take the sword sliall perish by the sword.
There Is no glorious mantle <.���.: tbout modern strife. It is a sinister,
sanguinary business proposition NV hand plays the troops Into action as of
yore; no glowing letters conn" back from the tr mt telling of deeds of bravery.
The soldier marches from home with his regiment and is lost to his friends
as completely as though he _,ad dropped Into ihe sea. K.ven the glittering
uniforms are gone and in their places have come the dam-colored, neutral
khaki. The long range cannor.. the deadly machine guns, the aeroplanes
have made killing men too easy a natter and. with the casually lists in the
present strife, is bound to come a public demand ior an end of . ar.
UNDER  A CLOAK OF  HONESTY.
An enemy in the open is to he honored, but the contemptible cur who
operates behind a cloak of honesty _ hile he attempts to strike nt you through
your friend is a thing to be regarded with loathing.
Across the line an aggregation of Germans are publishing In New York
a rag which they call The Fatherland which they say Is devoted to the
cause of fair play and an effort to have the American press publish Germanized reports of the present war in Kurope.
There is not a particle of doabl that this sheet is financed by German
government money and is published with the knowledge and the authority
ot the (Ierman government In an endeavor to stir up In the United States
feeling against (Ireat Britain and her friends. If I'ncle Sam chooses in
his magnanimity to allow Ihls to go on. it Is his own hu.iness. but that the
stuff which is printed In The Fatherland thing should come through the
Canadian mails is a little too much.
The publication referred to is just about what might hi,ve been expoeted
trom the stamp of cowards who have been butcheritir d. fenceless Belgian
villagers for the past week and blowing about the time when Wilhelm will
be emperor of Kurope. If the .Americans are wiiJing to permit ils publication
anil class it among their funny paper., a',1 well f.nd good, but the Canadian
government can. and probably ... tak. effective me. surf, to prevent it

the ramous Belgian military engineer, General Henri Alexis Urilmont, whose
reputation was world-wide. The defensive works ot Namur were not so
strong as IhoBe or I,lege, but the position or the city was much better ror
military purposes. The forts are nine In number, the tour must prominent
biing St. Herlbert, Audoye, Suarlee and Cognelee, while the connecting torts
oi less strength are Dave, Maizert, Marchivolet and Kmlnes. All are protected by hardened steel domes, generally eight of them ln each fort, and the
artillery, consisting of modern heavy disappearing guns. Is very powerful.
It is assumed that the allies are jailing back on their first line of defensive works, tunning /rom Mauberg In a southeasterly direction, by way of
Hirson, Mezleres, Montmedy, Verdun, St. Klthiel. Teoul and Kpinal, all of
which are strong fortresses and are interspersed with smaller works, such
as Ayevllle, (lenlcourt, Troyon. l.os Parodies, Llanville, (llron, lilt* and Jouy
Sous les Coles. Behind these lines another strong line of fortifications runs
from St. Quentln in the north through l.aon and ltheims, to the great en-
trenched camp at Chalons.
In other parts of Belgium fighting Is still in progress, and a report from
Ostend says 30,000 Hermans have attacked Malines. thirteen miles from Antwerp. This attack Indicates that the Germans intend to invest Antwerp.
Charleroi also has been the scene of hot fighting, this time between the
French and German troops, and a fresh encounter Is believed to have begun
Cure today. Twenty-five thousand Germans have been surrounded between
Coiirtrai and Anseghem, according to the London Kxpress Brussels has
been left by the main body of German troops who have proceeded ou their
way to the Trout.

London, Aug 24. In its summary of the war situation lhe Times states:
"Namur has fallen. This, in the words of the official communication necess.
t.'ites the withdrawal of a portion of the allied troops rrom the line Of Sainlui
to their original defensive position on the Krench  frontier.
Further commenting on the fall of Namur before the Germans, the Times
says it is one of those Inexplicable events which makes war the gamble
that it is. That Namur should have fallen in two days will require a deal
cj explanation,  the Time* adds.
The Times' military expert says It is too early to Bay that the line of
the Meuse south of Mezleres must be ;ibandoned, bin the outlook is not favorable and the development of the situation in the m'xt few days will be
watched with legitimate anxiety.    He ii'titinues:
BELGIANS   NOT   WELL-DISPOSED.
"Tiiere are -eports that the townspeople and even the garrison of N'.i-
mur were less well-disposed than the men of Liege to offer a BtrenuouB resistance and so bring on their town the punishment meted oul by the Qer-
mans at Liege.
"There is undoubtedly some slight ri'i-ling among the Belgians that they
have not been adequately supported by the allies and that they have borne
the whole brunt of the war in the north, but we cannot believe the Belgians
did less than their duty; and we expect to hear that they were attacked by
overpowering numbers.
"The posSQSBlon of Namur was vital for (Iermany and it was a fine stroke
ior the Germans to have rushed the place under the eyes of tlie allied
armies. We still hope and believe that our counter offensive in the north
Is onlj   postponed  and  not  abandoned."
GERMANY  MUSI   HIT HARD.
Reviewing the general situation, the expert points out that the allies In
Belgium  are getting the full  shock of the Qerrnan  army.    He says it   is essential tor (Iermany that she should deal a paralyzing blow  in this quarter
in order to gain time to detach  troops to resist the  RusBlan attack on  th
| Prussian  frontier..
"Yesterday was a day of bad news and We fear more must follow," the
Times says today In an editorial on the fall of Namur.
"In  the  first phase of the great battle." the paper continues,  "the (ler-
j man;   appear to have won.    It  was German all along the lines, save In the
area held  by  the British.    We  were prepared  for the ebb and  flow of conflict, but not for the fall of Namur.
MUST FACF SITUATION.
"Wo have to face this situation with unshaken confidence. We have
to remember that the battle Is not yet over. The Germans have not yet
hu: .' their way through to France. We have to remember that this is only
the first great encounter of a war which plainly is destined to lie a long
one. Ko. the allies it i.s a phase; for the Germans it is vital. They are
dealing theli blows with tremendous vigor, but the issue In Belgium still
hangs in the balance, In spite of the unfortunate events at Namur.
"Whatever the upshot Great Britain and her allies will face the outlook
with dopii'''] d>'t"rmlnation and continue the war until the spirit ol Prussian
militaryisni Is routed cut ol Kurope.
TIME FIGHTf FOR ALLIES.
"Time fithts on the side of the allies. With the German:, it is neck or
nothing, but the French and the British have everything to gain by waging
a delaying war. While the Issue n mains uncertain, we may still maintain
the stoutest hope. Should It go again_t us, we may remember that the allies
have not. like Germany, Btaked all on their first venture, Our ultimate buc-
_ers is certain and we will never sheath our sword until Germany has been
flnall) beaten to lies kneeB."
"The Gh.-onlole commenting on the loss of the Belgian stronghold says:
"The news today is decidedly bad," adding, "that if the allies' losess have
been heavy we may yet see before long the Germans march In earnest on
i'aris. Namur is a fortress of ureal Btrength which Its defenders, it. was
thought, could possibly hold oul several months. We do (lot Imagine that I
t was taken by a rush. More probably a breach made elsewhere In the
line of the allies imputed on them the alternative of leaving u lurgi force
.0 be invested in Namur n withdraw  from It altogether.
"The blunt  facl remains thut In a really  first  class battle the  French
oops, occupying a secluded  position nf singular strength, were driven out |
,y the Germans after nol imirt- than two days fighting    Tins speak:: volumes
or tin  power of the German attack
"Kngland and llussia must stubbornly resolve thai come whal maj to
France they wlll never surrender to Germany, bul will stick to her as thei
tuck to Napoleon���until they pull her down. As long as we bold the sea
.e cannot ourselves be vitally struck."

"FrU-t-a-tives" Cured Paralyzed Bowels and Digestion
St. Boniface DI Shawimgan, Que.
Peb, 3rd. 1914-
"It is a pleasure to me to inform you
that   after   .suffering   from   Chronic
Constipation Ior 2!. years, I have been
cured  by  "Pruit-a-tives".     While  I
was a student at Bertbier College, I
became so ill I was forced to leave the
the college.   Severe pains across the
intestines continually tortured me and
it came to a point when I could not
stoop down at all, and my Digestion
became paralyzed.   Some one advised
me to take "Fruit-a-tives" and at once
I felt a great improvement.    After I
had taken four or five boxes, I realized
that I was completely cured and what
made me glad, also, was that tbey
were acting gently, causing no pain
whatever to the bowels.   Allthosewho
suffer   with    Chronic    Constipation
should follow my example and take
" Pruit-a-tives"    for   they  are   tbe
medicine that cures".

week is out. Joshua Kingham, holder
of the franchise, has already lost
nearly $7000 in his short tenure of
I possession and he feels disinclined to
go In any deeper, especially as with
,the European war depressing financial conditions on all sides, there are
good reasons for doubting that he
would be able to recoup his losses In
,-he 1915 season. Mr. Kingham fig-
1 ures that he would save about $1500
I in salaries and rent of grounds by
throwing up the franchise now.

f-om whose frontier Arlon is about
1. nr miles distant. Arlon Is reported to mark the southern point of
the German advance through Belgium uhioh terminates to the north
in the neighborhood of Brussels,
ahout 100 miles away. Belgian en-
gin<y:s have built respectable fortifications at Arlon as a precaution againsi what now has actually
happened, vi/... an invasion or
France     by     way    of     the    Grand
Duchy of Luxemburg and Belgium.
