Rersistcnt Rumors That He
Was Wounded in Action
or Assassinated.
l/ondon, Aug. 24.���Refugees who recently arrived In I-on don from Germany state that persistent reports
there are tbat tbe crown prince is
dead. The mystery concerning him
is deepening, although the rumors
tbat some serious accident has befallen him gain proportionally In substance.
The l/ondon Standard was the first
paper to publish a circumstantial account of an attack on tbe crown
prince by an unknown man. ln which
the prince was seriously wounded, the
man escaping. In connection with
this alleged attack. Englishmen making their way to the G��rman frontier
were subjected to all kinds of indignities and insults. This is the version, according to refugees that .finds
the greatest credence in Germany.
The next report was that the crown
prince was wounded and lying seriously ill at Alx-I-a-Chapelie, whither the
kaiser waa hurrying to his side. This
received support in a telegram from
lirussels to tbe effect that he was
wounded in action.
It will probably be some time before
the news is confirmed or contradicted
with an official sanction.

The French and English plan of attack having failed owing to unforeseen difficulties, have retired on the covering positions.
It is to be regretted that the offensive operations planned failed to
achieve their purpose as a result of difficulties Impossible to foresee. It
would have shortened the war, but our defences remain Intact in tbe presence of an already weakened enemy.
Every Frenchman will deplore the temporary abandonment of portions
of Alsace and Isorralne which we had occupied, and certain parts of tbe
national territory will suffer from events from which they will be tbe
theatre. The ordeal is Inevitable, hut temporary. Thus detachments of
German cavalry, belonging tu an unattached division operating on the extreme right have penetrated to Boubaix, six miles north of Lille, and the
Tourcoing district which are defended only by territorial reservists.
Our valiant people will know how to find courage to support this trial.

West of the Meuse the English army on our left was attacked by the

the Prussian guard, tbey were obliged to retire, only, however, after inflicting enormous losses.   The Prussian guard especially suffered heavily.
East of the Meuse our troops advanced across an extremely difficult
country and made a courageous attack when they emerged from the woods,
but weTe obliged to fall back after a stiff fight south of tbe river 8emois.
On an order of General Joffre our troops and tbe British troops withdrew to the covering positions. Our troops are intact; our cavalry lias in

Ol waiting has brought home the realities of war to the Hritish people.
Never before has the whole nation
been so deeply moved. Many thousands have relatives and friends in the
army, they know that the casualties
must be great, that the death roll
will probably be heavier than In the
case of any British force since the
Crimean war.
T'ne only Information of events the
country has had is contained in brief
official bulletins ot a vague character, and these have not been cheering.
Throughout London lhe people are to-
nlghl in much more serious mood than
ai any lime since they faced the war.
There nre no scenes of gaiety in tho
theatres and restaurants tonight, and
iln- crowded streets are very quiet.
This does not mean that there is
any less determination on the part
of the Britons���only that, the people
are beginning to realize What this war
may cost them. On every side are
heard declarations that the country
must he prepared for a long and exhausting struggle.

vice, not a few admit lhat they never
realized how small a part the British
army counted in a    great    European
si niggle.

Too much stress cannot be laid on the advice printed In the papers of
Oreat Britain, evidently Inspired from authoritative sources, that public
...-i.iiiiient should not be stampeded by reports of initial reverses to the
arms of the British and French, or inspired by false hopes for a speedy and
easy victory over the combined forces of Germany and Austria.
To quote from an official announcement: "The most surprising things
may bappen in war; but at the moment tbe balance of probability, according to competent, technical, m,llt_,ry opinion, does not Indicate an immediate, rapid and easy defeat of .le'niany and Austria. Those powers are exceedingly formidable, alike U. their material resources and in the spirit of
their people and governments. No war, least of all so colossal a struggle
as tho present, wbeTe Hostile forces are contending over a whole continent
and many seas, cun be prosecuted without a proportion of untoward Incidents."
Such a statement, coming as it does from the highest authority in this
country, shows that the hetds of the empire appreciate to the full the
gravity of the position und have prepared accordingly; that they have so
prepared with the immense resources at their dispohal is ample guarantee
of ultimate success to British arms, no matter what "untoward incidents"
may transpire In the meantime.
Wilhelm of Germany has challenged Europe to dispute his claim to
domination in the old world. By so doing he is following the same path
which was essayed two hundred years ago by the Grand Monarch, Louis
XJV, and from whicli he was turned by the brilliant Marlborough at Blenheim, Oudenarde and .Malplaquet; the same path which Napoleon attempted
and which he found blocked by a Nelson and a Wellington. French armies
won many victories before Louis suffered crushing defeats at Marlborough's
bands; Napoleon had beaten the whole of the continent of Europe to its
knees before Wellington broke him at Waterloo. It is just possible that
Wilhelm may taste the joy of victory before the forces are finally marshalled which will hurl him to the dust.
At any rate, 'he duty of the empire is to await the result confidently,
because our cause is just and during the waiting prepare for any emergency, so that when the time conies, if it does come, we shall be found
doing our parts to save the world from the military despotism with which
it is threatened.

handles and distributes. Tbe Havas

on Tuesday evening, August 18, and
who should have arrived at Quebec by

member of The News staff yesterday-
receiving a letter from Sidney Bass,
a late member of the local police

interest to many in this city. Is herewith appended:
Dear Sir,���There is very little news
to tell you as yet, but I am writing to
ask If you would insert a few lines
in Tlie News, thanking the citizens,
especially the National Reserve, for
the enthusiastic send-off given us. We
were all greatly impressed by Captain
Wilkie's speech and knowing what he
said to be a fact, we are prepared to
lace the music. There are 60 reservists on the train from Vancouver
and many were picked up at various
places on the way, all eager to get in
contact with the troops of the kaiser.
We have big guardsmen, lancers.

New York. Aug. 24.���The federal Inquiry into the higher cost of food
since the war began in Europe has
not developed that the Increases were
unwarranted, according to Roger B.
Wood, United States assistant district
attorney in charge of the investigation.
"No evidence of conspiracies to
force up the price of food lias been
disclosed which would warrant criminal action being instituted by the
government." Mr. Wood said today.
"Generally speaking, there has been
no unusual rise In the price of foodstuffs. There huve been Increases in
a few commodities, bul some of these
have become dearer because of
natural conditions.
"I will admit that the timeliness of
our inquiry might have arrested a
general upward movement of prices
due to the greed of retailers und

no abnormal supply of foodstuffs in

The question ol Inserting a white
abor clause In all waterfront i"t
leases  and   a   proposal   to  assist  the
front, occupied the principal attention
of the city council last night. In the
absence of Mayor Gray, Alderman
Jardine had charge of the proceedings.
The white labor clause was brought
up by Alderman Dodd when the time
arrived for reconsideration of the
Grain (.rowers' li. c. agency  bylaw,
the labor alderman contending that
as the water lots were city property,
the same scope as applies to the
leasing of other civic property should
be allowed. He maintained that it' the
citizens were to get the benefit, that
every dollar expended on the work
should revert back to the white people and not to Orientals, who, It had
been shown, care little but to hoard
their money and ship it back to their
native land
Alderman Annandale, a.s chairman
->f the harbor aonwnlttee. while stating
thai he had not heard of the propos,-
tion before, claimed it was unfortunate thfit the mutter was nol brought
up at the Ime the bylaws and agreements were prepared and not when
one or two bad already been disposed
of. He favored the clause, however,
and seconded Aid nnaii Dodd'a motion
to hi ve ii in., rti : iii all loases.

I lies.    Other cities were doing it, and
| entirely apart from this, he thought it
only  right that  the  families of the
'men who were fighting for Canada and
the empire should not suffer. The
alderman believed that a two-thirds
salary should be paid to the wives of
those formerly in the pay of the city,
lir also thought the city should take
out insurance policies of $!.iiKl on
each married man and $11.00 on each
