- Notwithstanding the German official
denials, Italian immigrants returning
here today confirm the 'report that
they were deliberately fired on by-
German soldiers at Magdeburg.
They assert that about 6000 Italians
were taken on cattle trucks tu
Cologne, being 38 hours without food.
When they appealed for provisions
at Innz near the station they say tbey |
were refused, the reply    being   that
Italy, having declared her neutrality,
they could die of hunger.
Surrounded by soldiers with fixed
bayonets, the Italians were taken into
the country and kept for two days
and two nights, without shelter, in
the rain. Afterwards tbey were transported by train to Magdeburg, where
they were given quarters in the dirty
stables of the fortress. Potatoes and
flour were served to them once a day.
After being held three days, the
Italians were notified that they might
leave for Italy. iFilled with Joy by
the announcement one of them cried
"Viva Italy." which irritated the
soldiers, who, it is said, tired into the
unarmed crowd, filling one and
wounding fifty.

Fiendish Deed
Of Germans
Captured Soldier Has His
Throat Cut Before Alsace Villagers.
I-ondon, Aug 19.���Midnight���An
American military expert, reviewing
the situation In Belgium, says tonight:
"I left Brussels today. There waa
a good deal of agitation there, as the
people thought tbe Germans very-
near, and there had been fighting at
Tirlemont. A good many refugees are
coming from Tirlemont and Louvain.
"The people kept very quiet, though
they were Riled with suspense owing
to the numerous rumors. The impression was that the Germans, after
making reconnaisances In forces and
scouting the country to the north of
Brussels with cavalry, were about to
advance in force on Brussels. The
population had been told by the burgomaster that if tbe Germans came
they should remain indoors and go on
as far as possible with their usual
An Undefended C<ty.
"Brussels Is.an undefended city, but
within the last three or four days
every Important street leading out of
the     town     has     been     barricaded.
Trenches have been dug in the outskirts and barbed wire entanglement*
have been placed in front of them.
Theae defences, however, are Intended
only for protection against a cavalry
raid. They would be futile against
any attack in force.
"A battle for the actual possession
of Brussels will be fought outside in
tbe direction of Wavre and Louvatn.
If the Germans take Brussels, It does
not mean in any senae a military setback for the allies, beyond its aenti-
mental effect, and the opinion In
Brussels was that owing to French
succession in Alsace and the cheek
tbe German, right wing haa Buffered
in Belgium, something must be done
which would have at least the form
of success.
Not Unduly Scared.
"Brussels apparently ia not unduly
scared. The Bhops are open; the
street cars and ta.vicabs are running
and the newspapers are appearing
"There is no sign of alarm, and the
staff states that tlie situation ia excellent."
Paris. Aug. 19.���The following official statement was given out tonight:
"Latest advices are to the effect tbat
the French army has reached Mor-
hange. in Alsace-Lorraine, 19 miles
southeast of Metz. Our advance was
very rapid in the afternoon beyond
the river Sellle, especially the central
part of Our Una. At the end ot the
day we reached Delma, on one side and
Morhango on the other.
"There is little change in the aitu-
ation in upper Alsace. We continue
to advance in Vosges. The Germans
have retaken the village of Vllle,
where we had an outpost. Our troops,
debouching'on the Sellle, have occupied Shateau Salins and Blenze. but
face well fortified aad strongly held
positions. Our progress at first was
necessarily slow.
"Our cavalry has had a successful
encounter with the Germans at Flores-
ville, Belgium. Very large German
forces, it is reported, are crossing the
Meuse between Liege and Namur.
"One of the French brigadiers has
asked the commander in chief to make

Signs of War
Over London
Little Excitement When It
Was   Known   British
Were in France.
When Nelson flew that signal from his flagship, the frigate Victory, at
the battle of Trafalgar, where Britain's supremacy of the seas was^lgned
.md sealed, he meanf it to apply to every man in his fleet, from tlie admiral on the quarter deck to thc powder monkey carrying ammunition from
the hold. How well his men lived up to their great admiral's desire Is written on one ot the brightest pages of British history.
one hundred and nine years it is since these flags flew In the Trafalgar breeze, carrying the immortal,message to Nelson's men, and from that
day to this the great sea-tighter'e dying motto. "England Expects Every
.Man to Ilo Mis Duty," has been the expression of British ideals and British
policy the world over.
In the present time ol stress the call to arms against an audacious and
grasping foe hft's found the empire ready and eager to sacrifice its best to
the cause, but all of us cannot go to the front and to those who remain at
bome the old signal whicli fluttered from the Victory's peak applies every'
bit as strongly as lt does to the men who shoulder the rifles -and work the
"England Expects Every Man To Do Wis Duty," to the empire, to the
Dominion, to the province, to his city, to his friend or competitor in busi
ness, to his customer, to his neighbor, to himself and to his honor.
II has heen suggested in dispatches that there is danger or prominent
Cerman shipping companies making nominal sales of their craft ln order
to operate them under the flags of neutral nations nnd so carry provisions
to their home country, but according to international law on this point, the
dangei  is more Imaginary than real.
lt is specifically provided by International agreement, to which all the
powers now at war and several others, including the United States, have
subscribed, that the transfer of a ship, to stand the test, must he absolute
and complete and actual change of possession given for a valuable consideration, bo that the control of the vessel and the returns from its employment are changed from the owner to the new owners. Further, the
vessel must be in port at the time of the transfer.
Merchant vessels of belligerent powers cannot escape risk of capture
merely by registering under the flag of the United States or under that of
any ether neutral nation. Under international law merchant ships of an
enemy, but not those of a neutral power, may be captured, but If a vessel
recently owned by subjects of the enemy claims the benefit of neutrality by-
virtue of a change in registration, the overhauling cruiser is within its rights
in demanding to be absolutely satisfied on this point.
if the transfer occurred before hostilities opened it is valid, unless It
is proved that the change was made to evade the consequences of war. If
the captured ship has not its bill of sale aboard and it Is known to have
.���hanged its nationality less than sixty days before the opening of hostilities,
the transfer is presumed to be void and of no use as a means to evade
confiscation, though it also is provided that the presumption of ulterior
motlvo op which the overhauling cruiser acts in disregarding the captured
vessel's _ev flag may be overturned by proper proof of good faith In the
prize court of the country which makes the seizure. J
A transfer is palpably void if made during a voyage; in a blockaded
port; If tiiere is a right of redemption or re .rsion attached to the transfer
to become effective at the close of hostilities; or if the requirments of the
laws of the country whose flag has been bolsted have not been obBrved
Taken briefly, it may be assumed that the law with regard to change of
registration during war time differs little from the common law title to personal property, as applied to questions between debtor and creditor.
n'runk   with   the  lust   of   power,   insane   through   egotism   and   self-will,
the greatest representative of medievalism alive is making his stand, his last
stand,   in   Europe   today   against   the   progress   of   enlightenment   and   the
������omlng.^f the brotherhood of man and the Kingdom of tiod.    Do you have
any tea re of the final result?   If you do, you do not need to have, whatever
just  fears  you  may  have  as to the  process  by  which  it  will   be  reached.
Along with the thousands of the sons of the nations, medievalism will he
slain in Europe during these next  few weeks.    That old arch heresy that
said one man had divine right to Impose his will upon millions will be slain
finally  and  forever.    The   people,  stricken,   peeled,   broken,  with   resources
.swept away, everyhome a place of mourning and every heart lonely for someone, will give it short shrift.    The day of the people will dawn  more fully
over the earth.    Men  will  rule who serve the  people,  who minister to the
common good, and not those who wickedly serve their own whim or lust.
(lod help us that the day will dawn through Buch struggle and conflict. But
Ood help ub to see its dawning and make the  most of it.���The Christian
London, Aug. 111.- London displayed
little excitement when it became
known that the British troops were In
.'ranee. There were no crowds around
the bulletin boards and no rush for
newspapers. There was a stolid, repressed earnest crowd In the parks
where the recruits are drilling, and
at the barracks where the trained
soldiers go through evolutions.
The geuernl routine is little disturbed, except for the unceasing movement through the streets of troops,
ammunition trains and hospital corps.
Tailors and saddlers are rushed with
business. The sign "swords and
bayonets sharpened" appears in the
cutlers windows. No women and children cry as the troops depart.
National Anthems Rendered.
The attendance nt the music halls
and the theatres shows no diminution
as many people spend their afternoons
or evenings at the playhouses. "Britannia Kules the Waves," the "Mar-
Belllese" and the Itussian national an-
I them are rendered by the orchestras,
I the audience standing.
As one    Highland    regiment   Went
through  the streets, its band  played
I "Marching Through Georgia."
Private homes have been converted |
into hospitals, and the newspaper departments, under the head  of "What
women can db," or Bome similar caption, are the busiest.
Signs are posted that Earl Kitchener, the secretary for war. needs 100,-
000 men for three years, or to    the
j close of the war.
Proteate Against German Waiters
There haB been so��e protest
[ against (Ierman and Austrian waiters
j being permitted to serve at the hotels
and restaurants. eOne newspaper pro-
j tests against excessive forbearance, as i
instanced by the crowd ut the railway
station on the departure of the Austrian ambassador singing "Deutsoh-
land. DeutBchland Uber Alios."
The stock exchange is closed and
the city is quiet. Clerks are numerous
carrying rifles and cartridge belts.
The large business houses announce
that their places will be kept for
those who enlist.
The newspapers are proud of Ihe
effective manner In which they have
kept secret the movement of the
troops, of which much has been surmised, but little known.
Seaside Season a Failure.
The seaside resorts face a ruined
| season and the hotels dread the re-
! turn of tourists, for they would not
be able to accommodate them. Food
prices are lower, with the exception
of sugar, which comes from Austria
and Germany.
Cargoes of grain on the German vessels captured in the Baltic sea were
sold today and brought current prices,
but the effect was a fall in price,
especially in maize.
Pythias enterta ninent, went out to
Queens park shortly after S o'clock
where, ln the bi _ horse show building,
it presented a I ne concert up to IU
o'clock This arrangement was made
by Major Doherty yesterday and met
with the appru ation of several hundred spectators other than members
of the regiment.

thut  grief over the  situation  brought
on the final crisis and so overwhelm

In  III  Health  for  Years.
Ill health hud been Ihe ponllff's lot
for many years aud Intermittently the
attacks have been so serious, that the
world  was  propared  several  limes  to
hear of his passing.    During the lumpier there) had been numerous denials 1
from the Vatican that his indisposition !
I was serious.   As late as Aug. 10 last,!
upon the occasion of Ihe eleventh an
iiiversiiry of his coronation, Pope Plus.
granted   numerous  uiidlences.
Two days later lt became known he
had cancelled practically all engage
ments. Ills attendants reported that
he waa unable to work and that he
sat listless and silent for hours, evidently brooding over the great clash
of arms In Europe.
Ills physician ordered his holiness
to lied on Aug. III. when it wus an-
jiioiuiced that the war and the In-
| tense heat in Home hud combined lo
diipress him. In bed he continued to
dream of the conflict by night and
to discuss It by day.
Sketch of Pope  Plus  X.
Giuseppe  Sarto,  who  succeeded  to
the throne of St.  Peter on  the death
of  Pope  Leo XIII  in 1903,  under the
name of Plus X, was born In Rleso. a
village   In   the  diocese    of    Trevlso,
north of Venice, on June 2, 1886,    lie
i studied .in the seminaries of Trevlso
! and Padua and was ordained a priest
In Castlefrauco   In    1S5S.    For many
!.vears  he  performed  thc duties of an
j ordinary parish priest in several parts
| of  the  Venetian  territory,  which  was
[then  under  Austrian   domination.
It was not until 1876 that he was em-
j ployed In subordinate diocesan offices
in the diocese of Trevlso. In l_St he
i was made Bishop of Mantua by Pope
Leo, who In the consistory of June li,
1893, created him cardinal and three
days Inter appointed him Patriarch or

Very  little business was transacted
: at the regular meeting of the Hoyal
Columbian hospital board yesterday
afternoon other than passing on accounts and receiving the report of the
i superintendent  for the past month.
A little discussion took place as to
the proposed changing of the maternity hospital from the cottage to one
[ of the floors In the new wing now
being buiit. Nothing dellnite will be
done in regard to the matter until the
architect has been uble to make a report. If such a change Is made It
will mean the use of the' present maternity cottage for an additional
nurses'  home.
A special meeting of the board will
be called within the next two weeks
to take up this question and also
several other matters which have
cropped up recently.

MINKS���Ttiese engines of warfare
come Btrlctly under the head of instruments of ambuscade and are of
use only when the fnemy is in ignorance of their location. Roughly
speaking, there are two distinguishing classes of mines, those used on
land and those used at sea, the
latter being again sub-divided into
contact mines and electrically controlled. Land mines generally are
placed under ground over which the
em my i. expected to pass or over
whicli it is intended to decoy him.
The Belgians made use of the latter plan recently before the be-
leagtlred fortress of l.iege, when
thev sent out a cloud of cavalry
which purposely retired before the
pursuing Oermana, leading them
over ground which had been mined. When the kaiser's troops were
squarely above the mined territory
the touch Of an electric button exploded the trap and killed or disorganized the pursuers. Mining on
land is done simply by placing a
store of high explosives below tho
ground, connected with military i
engineering headiiuarters hy elec- ,
trie wires to be used to explode
them at the proper moment. Mines
used hy the navy usually resemble
a top in appearance, or two cones
joined at their bases,, the Interior
being filled with explosives. An
ordinary mine Is about five feet
from point to point and about three
or four feet in diameter. On eon-
tact mines are placed lurge buttons rising several Inches from the
outside surface of the casing ut
frequent intervals. These mines
are floated several feet below the
surface of the water und when n
ship touches any one of these hut
tons the electric contact Is made
aud the explosion occurs. Sometimes two mines ure strung together by cable and a ship striking the
cable unconsciously swings the engines of destruction in on each side
of her, ensuring almost certain
wrecking. Klectrically controlled
mines also are floated beneath the
surface, but are exploded by wire
ccimeetion from shore or rrom a
neighboring ship, as in the case of
the ordinary land mine. The primary use of 'naval mines is for harbor protection and by speciul provision In international law it is
considered barborous to strew floating mines in ocean lanes used by
neutral ships, as waB done by the
Cerman ship Koenlgen Louise,
which was caught at this work and
sunk by the British torpedo boat
destroyer Lance. It was a contact
mine placed hy tho Koenlgen
Louise which wrecked the British
cruiser Amphion.
STUASSBMItC    A  city  of about   180,-
000 In Alsace and the most impor
tant commercial and military centre
in that province now being invaded
by the Krench. It Is situated on
the river Rhine and first obtained
a prominence In history as the
place where John Gutenberg about
1440 worked out his system for the
first series of movable type for
printing. A rupture in the partnership which Gutenberg had formed
to establish a printing business,
caused the removal of his workshop
to Mainz, which thus was able to
claim the honor of having been thc
birthplace of printing over Strass-
burg whore the system undoubtedly
was worked out. The great leader
of the second generation of Protestant reformers. John Calvin, af
ter being driven from Paris, spent
some time In Strassburg. about the
year 1534, studying the different j
reformations whicli the reformed
gospel had undergone during the
fifteen years previously. During
the Smalkaldie War. which was virtually a struggle between the Protestant princes of Germany, banded together In a league known us
the Smalkaldie league, organized
at Snialwald, Germany, and the Kmperor Charles V. Strassburg. in
spite of moral and material support from Henry VIU of Kngland.
und Krancls I of France, capitulated to the Kmperor Charles , In
August and September, 1.70, Strassburg again was the centre of a
military struggle. As a bone of contention in the Krunco-Prussiaii war.
then raging. It was Invested by the
Germans and, after a siege during
which the garrison and people were
reduced to the last degree of starvation, it once more surrendered to
an enemy. Strassburg now is a
very strongly-fortified German post
but in the ' event of the French
armies in Alsace meeting with any
great measure of success it Is almost certain to be called upon to
withstand another siege, this time
under the Gorman flag.
SI'KZ CANAL���This undertaking was
the product of the brain of the
great French engineer De Lesseps.
When the plan for building the
canal was submitted to the British
premier, Lord Palmerston, he refused to have anything to do with
it. saying. "All the engineers In
Kurope may say what they please;
I know more than they do; my
opinion never will change one jot
ami 1 shall oppose the work to thn
end." In this work Palmerston
was supported almost unanimously
by the press and people of Kng-
land, though he was opposed by
the late William K. Gladstone, who
had faith In De l.essep's plans.
Later Krench suppoit was enlisted
for the scheme and the work was
started August _5, 1859, witlRuit one
