The enlistment will be absolutely
voluntary for all ranks although it is
provided that in the case of whole
regiments or companies their unity
will be preserved as far as possible.

In view of the fact that it has been
decided not to call the men out by

likely to be mobilized at Quebec much
before the meeting of parliament, a
week from Tesday. What will be the

Call for 21,000 Troops, But Not Known
Whether   Companies   on   This
Coaat  Will  Be  Included.
With  orders   issued  at Ottawa  yesterday  for  the  mobilization  of 21.000
troops. 15,000  of which  will comprise
infantry,    it     is  almost   certain   lhat I
local   troops   will   be  affected   by   the i
order,    Iu many instances it is piob-
able that entire regiments will be ac-1
cepied  for  service,  but  whether  this
will prevail  on  the  Pacific  coast  re- \
mains to be seen.
Yesterday's  order  is  MM  firs'  U. t'l- (

Brussels, Aug. 5 Belgian forces
are reported to have won a sweeping
victory near Spa, the former Belgian
watering place. Two regiments of
Germans are said to have been do- I
ciminated during the engagements.
Belgian   troops   engaged   had   been
hurried   forward   from   I.lege  to reinforce the border patrol.   The Germans
advanced along the railway in an ar-
moured train.   The B���lgiaiia had post- i
ad  artillery  in   position  to command j
the railway, and in addition had min- !
ed   the   track  al  a   point  where   the
road crossed a culvert.
When tiie train was squarely on '
the bridge the mine was exploded, j
completely destroying the engine and
lhe two forward cars filled with German soldiers. At the same time the
Belgian artillery opened fire on the ]
remainder of the German forces i
whicli had been conveying the train.
The carnage waa fearful. The Ger- !
mans, although caught by-
put up a strong resistance, but they
had no supporting artillery and finally
retreated towards the frontier. In the
meantime a Belgian column had beeu
rushed to the rear of the German
position and the two regiments, composing the assaulting column, were
caught in a trap. Many were killed
before the officers commanding, surrendered the column to the Belgians.
The Belgian loss was comparatively
unimportant, according to the announcement made here. The German
prisoners  have  been  taken  to Spa.

Her  Battle  Record  Shows  Long  iLst
of Defeats and But a Very
Few  Victories.
In referring to the foolhardiness of the German emperor, displayed in his challenge to Britain over the Belgian dispute Le Matin, of Paris, says: "If it was a blunder,
the kaiser is crazed."
The manner in which the head of the German people
has gone about his affairs during the past few days, his
evident desire to incense all the nations of Europe, each
successive one aroused lining up against him and his Austrian ally, is almost ground for the conclusion arrived at
by the French daily.
How Wilhelm possibly can see a way out of the trap
into which he has led his country is a mystery.
Austria he certainly has with him, but Austria's
record is one long list of defeats. Austria certainly never
has brought luck to her associates on the field of battle.
Italy, as a member of the Triple Alliance, is the technical
friend of Germany and Italy has stated that she will remain neutral. But even should she reverse that decision
it would leave the kaiser in almost as bad a cul de sac as
ever, since the only possible addition he could figure on
outside of the Triple Alliance would be Bulgaria.
Against this already are arrayed Great Britain, Russia and France, over-topping in ships and men the powers
oi the Triple Alliance.
Not content with this list of enemies, the kaiser now
has demanded of Sweden her intentions in much the same
dictatorial tone he used with such telling effect towards
France and Russia.   His answer from Sweden, therefore,
is not likely to be favorable to his plans.   There still re-;
main Norway, Denmark, Spain, Portugal and Turkey to!
arouse in Europe and Japan and the United States in Asia

Austria's    victories    in     war    bave
Usualy   been   due   either   to   powerful
allies or to tne Insignificance of her
! enemy.    Beginning as a petty duke-
��� dom. it was rescued from the Invading
| Moravians and Magyars by Kin*; Otto
, the Oreat of Oermany in Hi... and giv-
. mi as a  duchy to Leopold  of  Haben-
i berg, in whose family it remained un-
| til l_:4t>. says the Portland Oregonian.
i The Habenbergs extended their boiind-
! aries   eastward   by   colonization   and
westward    by    marriage,    inheritance
! and treaty.    The last of this line was
, killed in battle by the Hungarians in
j 1246. and  after a contest  the barons ;
! elected Ottukar. who became also king
j of Hungary and Hohemnia shortly afterwards.
At this point the Ilapsburgs come to
��� the   front.    Kudolph,   Count  of   llaps-
burg, was elected king of Germany in'
I ll!".,   and.   claiming   Austria,   Styria
and   Carinthia   as   vacant   fiefs,  compelled Ottukar to renounce them ami
gave   them   to  his  sons.     From   that;
lime the Hapsburgs schemed' successfully   for    aggrandisement,   Rudolph
IV. taking the title of archduke and j
declaring   his   territory   indivisible   in ;
!1HH4.    In the succeeding century they
acquired Carnlola, Tyrol, part of is-
< trbi   and  Trieste.    In   1438  Albert  V. ;
was elected  king of Germany and acquired the kingdoms of Ilohemia audi
Hungary hy marriage. From that time!
until 1740 the title Of king of Oermany '
remained  hereditary  with  the  Hapsburgs.    Albert's successor,  Frederick, i
was nl. o elected Roman emperor, and
the   Hapsburgs   held   that   title   until:
I. ii4, when they renounced it and look '
t'v title of "emperor of Austria" in
fear   lest   the   "upstart/'     Napoleon. |
should take the first named title from \
them and reduce them to the position !
of mere archdukes.
Not Conquerors.
As  military  conquerors,  the  llaps-|
burgs were  rarely    successful.    They
tried to conquer Switzerland, but were i
Ignomlniously  beaten at Sempach  in
1386.    The   second   emperor   of  their j
line,  Frederick,   was  driven   from   VI-
enna   in   ls;i.r>  by   Matthias Corvlnus,
king of Hungary, who overran their do-
minions,   but   who   was   expelled   by I
Mnxmilian   I.,  one of  the  greatest  of
the  Hapsburgs.    In  1520  the Turkish |
Sultan Suleiman conquered nearly all |
Of  Hungary  and  iln  1580  he  invaded j
Austria   and   beseiged   Vienna.     The i
Turks held most of Hungary till 1699
and compelled Austria to pay tribute
I fo: the remainer until 1G06.
I    Maxmilian's     successor,     Emperor |
��� Charles   V.,   was  the  greatest  of  the
Hapsburgs.    He handed over Austria,
, Bohemnia and Hungary to his brother,
I Ferdinand Charles, but was compelled
: to rescue him from the Turkish invaders.    He defeated and captured Fran-

Insecurity cf Shipping  Menace to Agricultural   Interest of State
ot California.
Si*.   Francisco,   Aug    ���">     War     has
ready   become a grim reality to the
i_r:. iltural Interests of California,
and tonight the official organizations
of fruit growers are seeking means of
protecting fruit to the value of $1,500,-
"nu now on its waj to Europe in British   bottoms.   Some   of   this   fruit   nas
shipped via the isthmus ot Panama
.!, ; Un- presence of German cruisers
.a i :������ Pacific is" giving tin- shippers
mn. :-. concern
'i -i ol the dried fruit nnd canned
vegetables from California has alread)
reached Oermany, where the hulk of
such cargoes were consigned, hut lhe
shipment of fresh fruit is al Its height
and the export of dried fruit will soon
begin. *
Ranchers   are   also  affected   by   the
��� ingestion' of  grain  at   Port    Costa, i
vhere several  ships awaiting cargoes j
have refused to accept the shipments
rrom the railroads.   Grain is arriving
there at the rate of 200 carloads dally.
The  warehouses are  full, and  the  16-
fil.al  of  the  ships   to  lond   the  ���.rain j
may     cause  serious  loss  to the  shipper's,  because the  railway declines toi
accept any further responsibility niter
us   arrival   at   Ih"  docks.    The   ships)
awaiting   cargoes   have   been   refused j
insurance and  they decline lo accept
anv cargo until  they  can clear under
ordinary conditions,
'loth grain ranchers and fruit growers "ire looking lo congress for relief j
in t'ne hope that it will pass the proof -������(! law to permit the American registry of foreign bottoms. In Ihe
meantime the fruit shippers are plan-
nine lo send their products across the
continent in the hope that suitable
vessels may he obtained on the .Han-
He .enboard for Its transportation to

Be  Interviewed.
Calgary. Aug. 5.���Mayor Sinnott
e.v.r.e out at the finance committee
meeting with a pronouncement on the
lliK.ncIal outlook as regards the university, and for the matier of that
every other constructive work projected by the city.
"We shall have to tell the governors
that they cannot go ahead with the
\w-irk," his worship said point blank,
after some discussion, "make it absolute and authoritative, saying that
nothing ran be done under tlie pres-
!������>���   financial conditions."
This remark was called forth by
the "university bylaw for $160,000 be-
in.-, mentioned, as contracts have been
awarded for one hundred thousand
dollars 'worth of building without an>
hondB having been issued. Questions
were asked as to what arrangements
had been made, and it apnenred that
tin- governors were taking it for grant
cd that, the money would be'forthcoming,
iMnyor Slnnotl came out with a declaration that he had always though!
thai the building of lhe university was
a mistake, and though I a science or
i clinical .chool would have been
more  desirable, as such  Institutions
would   have   received     a     government
grant     He deplored the botches    thai

as some new and strange creation of
a war god's imagination. The mirages were right side up and not inverted  ns  Ih  generally  the case.
On several occasions last week mirages have heen observed by vessels
in the strait, bul these have followed
the customary habits of these freak

Bellingham Kriday a very distinct
mirage was witnessed and this showed the fonr-inasled barkentine Aurora,

masts pointing downward and her keel

One   man   who   observed   Ihe   war

struck with the progress made in

In view of possible military emergency on both the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Canada it is as well to bear i
in mind that the Canadian militia act provides for gen-j
eral compulsory service.   Should the   German   cruisers!
sighted off the St. Lawrence or the Leipzig, which is reported to be steaming towards Vancouver Island, make!
any trouble the militia forces would in all probability have
to be increased.  The militia act provides for just such an i
emergency, and no doubt the following clauses will be
found interesting.   First as to liability to service, clause
10 enacts as follows:
"All the male inhabitants of Canada, of the age of
18 years and upwards, and under 60, not exempt or dis-!
qualified by law, and being British subjects shall be liable for service in the militia provided that the governor-1
general may require all the male inhabitants of Canada1
capable of bearing arms serve in a case of a lev^e eni
Use of Ballot.
This act goes further than this, for it provides for
I the drafting of men by ballot to complete a corps   for
training, as set out in clause 26:
"When men are required to organize or complete a
; corps at any time, either for training or for an emergency and enough men do not volunteer to complete the quota
required, the men liable to serve shall be drafted bv ballot..'"
Order of Drafting.
Clause 15 gives the several classes of the militia and;,
the order in which they shall be called out.
The male population liable to serve in the militia'
shall be divided into four classes:
The first class shall comprise all those of the age of!
eighteen years and upwards, but under thirty years, who
are unmarried or widowers without children.
The second class shall comprise all those of the age
of thirty years and upwards, but under forty-five years,
who are unmarried or widowers without children.
The third class shall comprise all those of the age of
eighteen years and upwards, but under forty-five years,.
, who are married or widowers with children.
The fourth class shall comprise all those of the age
of 45 years and upwards, but under sixty years.
These said several clauses shall be called upon   to j
serve in the order in which they are referred to in this
' section.
' Exemptions.
The following exemptions are provided for in clause
"The following persons only shall be exempt from liability to service in the militia:
Members of the kings privy council of Canada; judges of all courts of justice; members of the executive councils of provinces; deputy ministers of the federal and
provincial governments; clergy and ministers of all re-
! ligious denominations; telegraph clerks in actual employ-
j ment; officers and clerks regularly employed in the collection of the revenue; wardens and officers of all public prisons and lunatic asylums; members of the naval
i militia: members of the police force and fire brigade per-i
imenantly   employed in  incorporated  cities,   towns  and
i villages; professors in colleges and universities and teach-;
ers in religious orders; persons disabled   by   bodily   or|
mental infirmity; the only son of a widow being her only!
support: pilots and apprentice pilots during the season
of navigation.
Penalties of Refusal.
Once a man has been drafted he is compelled to serve.
Clause 114 provides as follows:
Every person of whom information is required by
any officer making any roll, in order to enable such officer to comply with the provisions of this act, who, when
applied to by such officer:
(a) refuses to give such information.or;
(b) gives false information or;
(c) refuses to give his own name and proper information or; ��� ,    . , . ,   ,,
(<]) gives a false name or false information, or; shall
(a) for such item of information demanded or re-
lused; ��� . ,   . ,
(b) for such item of information falsely stated:
(c) for refusing to give his own name or proper information, or; ,
(d) for giving a false name or false information; m-
icur a penalty not exceeding twenty dollars.
