Words of Warning from Both London and Paris���Public
Must Expect to Hear of Reverses���Only Small Skirmishes so far Have Occurred���German Version of the
Tight at Mulhausen���Three German Dirigibles Captured by the French���Another Attempt to Cross the
Meuse Repulsed���Engagement in-North Sea Reported.
!.ondon, Aug. 18.-The Chronicle takes the occasion of the announcement of tbe relative British expeditionary forces to reduce to their true
proportions tbe engagements so far fongbt.
"It Is a great misfortune." It says, "that a large section of the British
public are getting the impression that the Germans are already beaten.
This Impression Is quite premature. Tbe military calculation at the outset
of tbe war was that Germany would probably win the first ground. *ut If
our nation and the French could go on after t\at without panic, they would
with pressing persistence pull her down. This ts still probable. The calculation ts tbat the first round has not yet been fought, it has not even begun.   There bas so tar only been sparring.."
The Chronicle's editorial referring to the official publication of the
news of the landing of the British expeditionary force on Krench soil, says:
"Tbe announcement shows that under Kitchener's direction the nation
1s now in a position to assert what influence its small but highly trained army
can have on the military fortunes of war. It does not show more nor should
it at this stage when all must still be in secrecy in preparation for the
great blows which have not yet been struck."
Paris, Aug. 18.-11:50 p.m.���French troops have brought down a German aeroplane four miles south of Namur, Belgium. The pilot was killed
and the observation officers taken prisoners. The machine was not damaged.
The above official statement was issued here tonight and to it was
added: "When our troops entered Blamont���department of Meurthe-et-
Mo. elle, France���a few days ago, they found notices posted on the walls
tbat the next morning tbe mayor and prominent Inhabitants of the town
would be shot. The sudden arrival of the French and the disorderly retreat of tbe Germans, however, saved the persons from death."
Paris. Aug. 18.���The French authorities and other official writers here
continue to warn the public that It must be prepared for bad as well as
good news, ss it is evident tbat along such an Immense battle line the fortunes of war must vary. Granted, they say. that the German army
lias not the strong inspiration of the allies���and the accumulation of details
of outrages on defenceless villages indicates that tbey are to some extent
demoralized before the campaign is fully developed���it is only an untrained
Imagination tbat enormous armies of today can rush to sudden and universal victory."
l-ondon, Aug. 19.-12:50 a.m.-In a dispatch from the Brussels office,
thn Eidbange Telegraph company's correspondent says: "The German more-
men t toward the.Belgian eentre seems to have been cheeked at I-sadea
and Gembloux. No further movement of the enemy's tntte* have been
observed.   The (ierman prisoners in Belgium will be sent to England '

"The operations which yon will be
engaged in will be ln a friendly country, and you can do your own country no better service than showing
yourself in France and Belgium the
character of a British soldier by being invariably courteous, considerate
and kind.
Confidence and Truat
'Never do anything likely to Injure or destroy property and alwaya
look on rioting as a disgraceful, act.
You are sure to meet with a welcome
and to be trusted. Your conduct must
therefore Justify that confidence and
that trust.
"Your duty cannot be done unless
your health Is sound, so keep constantly on your guard against unwise
"In this new experience you must
find tempUtlon both in mine and

Ottawa, Aug. 18.- The fourth ses-i

liament whicli opened today, and
which promises to be the briefest, least
contentious and moat momentous on
record, got under way in a most democratic fashion. There were no frills
or ceremonies, and nn unusual air of

The members, who are here In comparatively large numbers, did not
show the slightest disposition to talk
party politics. On "the contrary the
talk was all about the war and the

Stein, according to which French officers and perhaps also Krench soldiers
were sent to Liege before tbe war to
instruct tho Belgian troopa In tbe defence of the fortifications.
It was impossible to protest
against these," says General Stein,
"but after the war began thia conduct
had to be regarded as an Infraction of
Belgian neutrality by Prance. We had
to act with all speed and mobilise.
Regiments were sent to the front and
marched on Liege. Six brigades on a
peace footing,' with some cavalry and
artillery took Liege.
"The brigades were mobilised at
Liege and there received aa relator ee-

} enormous peace  footing of  1,500,000  men,   Russia  is able  to  complete   her
'   first and second lines on war strength in comparatively less time than the
other three  powers   named.
On the basis of these estimates it would appear that Austria will not
be in a position to strike in force for another week at the earliest, (iermany
may be expected to have a million men. or perhaps more, in available
shape by next Friday, with one million and a quarter more becoming effective in divisions from that date till about September IS, when she should
be at her strongest as far ag first class fighting men are concerned. France,
with probably three-quarters of a million men in the field now, cannot,
according to military experts, be at her top war strength within five and
more likely within seven weeks from the date she commenced mobilization, which would place her at her beat somewhere between September 15 and
22, or about the same time as Oermany reaches initial efficiency. Itussia
for the numbers estimated in her first and second lines at 1,900,000, should
have, roughly, one million in hand at this date, with the other nine hundred
thousand following as soon as troop trains can bring them across country
from the the Caucasus, Western Siberia and Kastern Siberia. At this state
of preparations, Itussia appears to have a slight advarftnge over the otber
two powers, on account of her large peace footing of a million and a half.
Hut behind these first and second lines are millions of additional available troops, now in process of mobilzation and far outnumbering those already
mentioned. They are not the .r_!ined, first class soldiers of the countries
engaged, hut are reservists, time expired men, militia of a hundred different
kinds, genarmerie and civilian corps, all to be counted on ln a great struggle
Of this clas . Austria, lt is said, ran put in the field in about nine weeks
from the start of preparatous 1.190,000, bringing her toial np to 2,000,000.
Oermany can put in the field an additional 2,950,000 within a space of eleven
���weeks, thuB making her aggregate of fighting men 5,200,000. France is
counted on for 2.7.0,1100 more in thirteen weeks, giving her a host of 4,000,-
000 men in all. Russia's great extent of territory handicaps her ln mobil
izing her back lines and it would take her at least four months to bring up
her additional .1,640,000, and make her fighting total the estimated 5,500,000
Working from these figures, which are necessarily only approximates
since they were compiled in advance by tne military experts of the different
powers, It turns out that the different continental nations engaged in conflict
probably would reach tbeir complete mobilization on the following dates:
Austria, September 25; Germany, October 9; France, October 23; Russia,
November 24.
Viewed in this light, it is not at all surprising that the world still Is waiting for news of a decisive engagement.
Seven Residents of the City

Sidney  Bass,   William   Taylor and  A.
H. Wheeler Among Those Who
Will Report on Firing Line.
The World
Seven army reservists, resid* nts of
New Westminster, yesterday received
the official blue envelope enclosing
instructions to report Immediately at
Quebec from whence they will be
sent on to the old country to rejoin
their regiments.
Sidney Ilass, a member of the local
police force, will be one of the seven.
Bass has been expecting such an
order for some little time and but for
this would have hitched up with the
Canadian overseas contingent. He
(lrst served with the Tenth hussart
and later was sent to Egypt where
he became a member of the Kgyptian
camel corps, a unit of the British
military service which has distinguished itself in many a battle with the
Mad Mullah and his Dervishes. After
some little time in the Soudan. Mass
was sou home where he became a
member of the Duke of Cornwall's
light infantry, of which be is a reservist.
Both Bass and his wife come of
military   and   naval   parentage.     Mrs.
Bass is the daughter of a former member of the Egyptian camel corps who
lost his life In the Soudan.
William Taylor Is another reservist,
his regiment being the Scottish Borderers. Taylor Is a postal carrier In
the city and following the call Issued
to him. his fellow carriers clubbed together and presented him with a
signet ring which he will carry with
him back lo the old country and to
the seat of war. .1. (lough read the
address while the presentation was
made by Pos'i'iaster D. .1. McQuarrie.
The carriers also made other arrangements, the details of which are not
A. H. Wheeler, a late member of
Lhe No. .1 fire hall squad, is another to
receive the call, his regiment being
the First Warwickshire. Wheeler waB
one of the first to join the overseas
contingent from the 104th regiment,
but this move will probably be offset
by the receipt of orders to report at
Probably owing to a lack of knowledge as to the cost of travel between

British army authorities, the men are

noes while Anaoortes received 4500, all

"post seaton" run and will ro far towards swelling the catch, which was j
somewhat  smaller than expected.
The river boats reported fair catches
yesterday both up and down river and
these will afford considerable cmplo)
mint to the cannery hands who were
expecting to be reduced with ihe slack-
off of the run.   The fishermen reported considerable numbers of sock-;

Which means fair catches for the river'

physicians and have been paying
doctor's bills. I was so sick sua worn

asked me if I thought I could get

Sometime ago, I got a box of "Fruit-

My husband was delighted and advised a continuation of their use.
Today, I am feeling fine, ami a
physician meeting me on the street,
noticed my improved appearance and

von, a Belgian city of between forty j
and    fifty    thousand    inhabitants'
about seventeen miles east of Brus-!
sels.   It Is an Important transportation centre and marks the Junction
of several steam lines, and one electric tramway.    Last  Sunday  there
was a rather extensive cavalry engagement at 1-ouvain, where a detachment of Cerman  Uhlans    and
Hussars,  with a mounted-machine
gun  section, came  down  from  St.
Trond with the Intention of effecting a surprise.    Owing tq the fact
that the advance stiuadronB of   the
Germans wore    Belgium    uniforms
they  were able to get close to the
Belgian cavalry and deliver a volley before their identity was discovered    The Belgian horse, however,
quickly mounted and rallied, charged  aud drove  the Germans before
them in defeat.   The outcome of this
engagement   was   considerably  different from another action at lxiu-
vain which took place in July. 1831,
shortly after King Leopold accepted
the  Belgian  throne  from  the  coun- j
try's  congress.     At   that   time   the
king of  Holland  sent  his  son,  thej
Prince  of  Orange,  at  the   head  of

MAINZ.���Often called  Mnyence. is an I

miles   south   of   the   popular   continental   resort.   Wieshaden(   and   is
now in the public eye owing to the
report  that Kaiser Wilhelm, togeth-j
er  _lth three of his sons, has moved to Mainz to be close to the German Hue of advance on France. The I
seat of a papal archbishop, Mainz is!
about thirty miles north of the old!
city of Worms, a great religious cen-1
tre at the time or Martin Luther and
prominent In many ways before the 1
Reformation.     Mainz   is   less   than
twenty miles east of Bingen on the
rlvi r   Rhine,  made   famous  In   historical legend as the site of the "Rat
Tower' 'where, it is said, a grasping

ANTWERP.���A city which has played
a great part in Kuropeaii history is
once again  in the thick of conflict
and  hs.s  been  made  the temporary
capital of Belgium, owing to the advance of the Oermana towards Brussels.   A place or 275,000 Inhabitants,
it is the second greatest port in thei
world  In  point  of tonnage register-1
ed and cleared, while It also has the'
strongest and most modern Fortifications  in   Belgium.    The    Schehle
I river broadens at Antwerp Into an
arm of the sea and finds Its way to
the salt water through the low-lying
hinds of Zealand, Exports believe
it was part of the German plan or
campaign, which, unfortunately for
the Oermana, was checked at Liege,
to dash across Belgium and seize
Antwerp, a scheme which. If accomplished, would have given the kaiser's navy a first class protected base
fronting on England. In 1678 Antwerp was sacked by the Spaniards
amid indescribable scenes of slaughter and brutality. In IBHl and L6S61
it witnessed further horrors of war
und in 1S32 it was bombarded by
the Dutch shortly after King Leopold ascended tho Belgian throne.
Antwerp, as the crow flies, lies just
fifty-six miles distant from Andrew
Carnegie's great Palace of Peace al
The Hague In  Holland.
WATERLOO- The historic battlefield
of this name, twelve miles south ol
Brussels, In Belgium, promises, unless the apparent plans of the Hermans and their British, French and
Belgian opponents change,    to    become the scene of another and immeasurably   greater  conflict   under
ccnditlons    considerably    different
from those which existed on that famous Sunday, June 18, 1815, ninety-
nine years ago.    At that time the
actual  battle  line of the defending
British and allied forces under Wellington extended a little more than
two miles from a ridge on the road
to Wavre to a series of heights In
the rear of the chateau of Hougo-
mont. Then the French were the attackers and the British, Dutch, Belgians, Brunswlckers and    Germans
resisted the onslaught.   Wellington
prayed tor Blucher's German reinforcements of fifty thousand men;
Napoleon prayed for the arrival of
Grouchy.        Blucher     came     and
Grouchy did not.   Opinions differ as
to  whether  Wellington  would  have
been able to hold out had Blucher not
arrived, while another debated point
Is whether or not the final French
charge of the day, that of the twenty-six  squadrons  of the  guards,  up
Mont St. Jean, would have succeeded against  the British  squares had
the  advancing  horsemen  not  come
unexpectedly on  the hollow  way of
Ohaln In which hundreds   of    them
were burled alive and the whole effect of the onslaught weakened. All
these conditions would    be    absent
should Waterloo again prove 11 great
battlefield.    I'nder the  present  circumstances It could only witness a
small  part  of the general    engagement,   for  the  defending   front,   instead of extending only two miles,
as In  1815, now    stretches    across
practically seventy-five miles of ter-1
rltory. In 1915 the Krench attacked, I
today  the  Germans  are  advancing. |
In 1.15 the arrival cr titty thousand
men  helped   to  finally   decide    thc j
battle  In  favor of the  Hritish  and |
Germans, while today such a torce
would be able to make only a small
impression  at any one  point along
the  front where  millions ot troops
are opposed. In 1S15 the hollow way
or Ohaln wrecked Napoleon's finest
effort, the charge or the old guard:
today such a thing would be impossible,  the  areoplanes yould  have
warned the commander of every in-j
dentation In the ground and behind
Mont  St.  Jean   there  would  be  no
great, unexpected grave yawning to j
receive the flower Of the advancing ,
cavalry.   Hougomon chateau, where
the British grenadier guards with
the llninswickers, held out all day I
against the French artillery in 1815. |
would be wrecked now in 15 minutes by the powerful modern guns.
In 1815 the Belgians fled; today
they are standing their ground nobly. Even the face of the old battlefield is changed. The undulations of the plain on which the en-
counter between Wellington and
Napoleon took place are no longer
as they were on June 18,1S15, Where
the huge pyramid of earth surmounted by the commemorating
stone lion now stands, there was a
crest, whicli on the side of the Ni-
voiles road had a fairly easy ascent,
but which on the Qenappe road side
was almost impracticable. Thousands of cartloads pf earth were
used to build the mound for the Waterloo memorial, which is one hundred and fifty feet high and half a
mile In circumference. This makes
lhe .Mont St. Jean plateau now easily accessible by a gentle incline.
but on the day of tin- battle in 1S15
it was steep and abrupt. Along the
centre of the crest of the plateau
ran a ditch, the hollow wav of
Ohaln, into which tumbled Napoleon's charging guards as they
swept on to ensure the victory which
their emperor believed within his
grasp, There is no ditch there today. Instead on the left there
stands the Knglish tomb, on the
right the German. "There Is no
French tomb," writes Victor Hugo

San Francisco. Aug. IS.-While the
Herman cruiser Leipzig was putting
I to sea early today, ln charge of an
American pilot, she collided with the
I British steel barque l.ord Temple-
I town, lying at anchor In the stream
off the Vallcjo street wharf.
The Briton lost some of hi., running
gear and was badly enough battered
by the glancing blow struck him to
necessitate a survey by the marine
underwriters today.
The German held his outward
course, but the yards of the sailing
vessel are believed to have carried
away the antennae of bis wireless apparatus, and he is thought to have injured his bows. The damage to the
wireless could probably be repaired at

seriously handicapped.
