Ottawa, Aug. ��.--Throughout the day everybody at the capital affected
in any degree by the war situation was kept busy. Premier Borden and
his ministers, the officials of the militia and naval department and all
the departments In the slightest degree affected had no leisure moments.
Sit Robert and his colleagues were in conference throughout the day and j
evening making every possible preparation in the event of Great Britain
becoming involved in the struggle which Kurope is about to embark upon
They plan to have everything in readiness so that when the moment comes
to act there will not be a minute's delay. Col. Sam Hughes, minister of
militia, was able to assure his colleagues that the plans for the mobilization
of the Canadian forces are complete.
Quebec City, it is said, will be the point of mobilization. The Ancient
City will be chosen because it is already the headquarters of a considerable
portion of the permanent forces now In Canada and because it will be the
port from which the transports will sail when the times comes to send troops
from Canada.
The report that steps would be taken at an early Tate to man the Niobe
is confirmed. The naval service department is issuing a call for volunteers
from among the ex-navy men living in Canada. They are to be used in man
ning the Canadian cruiser Niobe for coastal duty on the Atlantic. A num-
be;  01 of.ers have already been received and 400 more are desired.
An important official announcement was made tonight that the government will impose a censorship of cables and wireless messages with the ob-
ject of preventing the sending out of news which might be to the advantage
oi enemies of Great Britain.
The cabinet council sat until 10:30 tonight. When the ministers adjourned Premier Borden said he had nothing new to announce, lie said that
the government had received nothing from the imperial authorities within
the last few hours ami intimated that the government would not have an
important announcement to make until action is taken involving Great Britain in war. It is understood the cabinet was deciding on the places for the
mobilization of Canadian forces.

Sir Kdward Grey dispelled the shadows of doubt which flickered over the

in the history of the rapproachmeiit, revealing it as essentially a national
one with Trance, without definite obligations. Finally, one of the tremendously questions -a question upon the answer of which the British empire

Germany's policy compels Great Britain to wage war. the foreign secretary
left an impression ot doubt.
That doubt may re.lect the mind of a cabinet not wholly unanimous
and the inference drawn by many is that Sir Kdward Grey's speech was a
hint to Germany that if she will keep her soldiers off Belgian soil and her
battleships away from the const of France, that will be the price of Great
'Britain's armed ni/ttrality.
The first outbreak of patriotic enthusiasm since the possibility arose of
Knglaiid's becoming involved in the war occurred in London tonight. Crowds

This did not satisfy the crowds, which chanted "We Want King George"
to the tune of the "Westminster Chimes" and sang "Rule Britannia." This
finally brought the king and queen out. again They were accompanied by
the I'rince of Wales and received another noisy greeting. The demon:'(ration lasted several minutes and for a long time after that the crowds continued to sing patriotic songs. King George and Queen Mary were also

crowds remained for hours around the palace, the house of parliament and
Downing street. The people generally were undemonstrative, apparently
being more curious than excited.
As evening drew on. however, an anxiety as to the attitude the government intended to adopt increased, the people became more excited and Hon.

a discovery has been made which
should go far to prevent loss of life
at sea. The inventor is a Montreal
man. Captain K. S. ('lift, a marine
insurance surveyor, and he gave a
successful demonstration in the morning at tbe Laurentian Baths, to about
a dozen marine experts.
Captain Cliff's idea Is to nave a
detachable pontoon on the stern of
the ship, that can be released by an
officer by means of levers. It takes
but one minute to make lt slip smoothly into the sea, taking with It. in perfect safety up to three thousand passengers.
Although the model, which is a
miniature of the Titanic, had to be
worked "from shore" this morning,
it answered well to signals, in spite
of the fact that quite two feet of water
or more was required to give the demonstration full effect. It was made to
sink in turn, as the Kmpress, Titanic
and Volturno sunk. Only once did the
pontoon refuse to act properly, and
that was a case of defective handling.
Kor about an hour the experts experimented ami questioned the inventor, Captain Walsh finally stating
that   he   was   very   pleased   with   it.

Belgian frontier in the face of the protest of the King~of
the Belgians and in spite of his prompt refusal to give
them free passage through his country, the Kaiser has
committed a second warlike act against the European
powers and particularly against Great Britain, who is|a8"
Belgium's protector in the European congress and to
whom the King of the Belgians has appealed for aid.
The explanation of the German ambassador that the
passage of the Kaiser's army to Belgian soil need not be
taken as an act of war against Belgium, but as a result
of French initiative against the Germans, is an exceedingly weak attempt to hoodwink Great Britain since the
French armies, no matter how powerful massed on the
western frontier of Belgium, have not yet been reported ,i?fu1,,hr,E fr
to have crossed the line. In this, therefore, as in practic- r tls "ne
ally all other directions since the crisis arose in Europe,
the Germans have shown an utter disregard for their national honor and an over-weening desire to p'-omote a
conflict, while at the same time they have vainly striven
to cast on Russia and France in turn the onus of the responsibility for the present acute state of affairs.
Both these daring breaches of faith confirm previous
estimates of German intentions with regard to France
and Russia and discount almost to the vanishing point her
statement that she did her best at Vienna to preserve
the peace of Europe.   On the contrary, by her invasion
of Luxemburg and by her traversing of Belgium, she has
made patent the fact that she is acting along the line.1, of

Vancouver Aug. 3.���The visit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
tne liberal leader, to this city, which had been definitely
set tor September 11, may be postponed indefinitely ow-
in.tr to the gravity of the situation in Europe. At a special meeting called by the Provincial Liberal executive
committee in the board of trade rooms yesterday afternoon, the feeling was general that this would prove to be
the case, and it was formally expressed in a resolution
moved by F. C. Wade, K. C, and seconded by S. S. Taylor.
The resolution, a copy of which was forwarded to Sir
Wilfrid, was in part as follows:
"Resolved, That this convention of Liberals, held
for the purpose of preparing for the reception of the Rt.
Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, is deeply impressed with the
danger now menacing the empire, and feejs that at a
time of such a threatened calamity it is beyond all things
manifested.  All the museums and galleries in Paris have
been closed, the various staffs having gone to war.
All possible measures have been taken to insure that
Paris will not lack for food. Special trains have been reserved for the transportation of foodstuffs, particularly
milk. In the event of the home supply becoming inadequate, a decree suspending the prohibition on the importation of foreign fresh meat wil appear in the official gazette tomorrow, thus insuring arge supplies from Argentine and other parts of the world in the near future.
Severe regulations are being rigorously applied
against persons attempting to profit in the present state
of affairs by increasing the price of necessities of life.
According to official telegrams the Germans have invaded French territory at three points at least, but there
still is no official rupture.   Baron von Schoen, the Ger
Vancouver, Aug. 3.���The German cruiser Leipzig is
not steaming toward British Columbia with a view of getting coal. The warship is in Mexican waters and arrived
at Mazatlan on Saturday to take in 900 tonsof coal from

Alex. Eadie, of the Northern Steamship company of
Vancouver, owners of the Cetriana, stated this manning
that the Cetriana is now coaling the Leipzig in Mazatlan.
He has received cable advices from Captain Mister, of the
Cetriana, to that effect.
It is the belief here that the chances of an engagement
are in favor of the Rainbow. It is the opinion here that
in that event nothing can prevent the German cruiser
entering the gulf, proceeding to Vancouver and there de-

Ottawa, Out.. Aug. 3.���If Brita'n de-
clares war, the government will at
once establish a censorship over the
tel< graphic service of the Dominion.
The department of navul service will
take charge of lhe wireless stations
ind service, while the department of
militia will establish a censorship
ever the land service. All messages
pilling from Canada will have to
ha.e an official government stamp indicating that they have passed censorship.
This is a civic holiday at the cap!
tai but it is no holiday for tlu- ministers of the crown  or  the olficers of
the  militia,   naval  or marine  departments.    All are at their posts waiting
anxiously I'or the latest, advices from

with her French and  Russian allies.

White, minister of finance, and  Hon. !
L.  P. Pelletier,    postmaster    general

The  Duke Will Stay.
Hi- royal highness, the Duke of1
Connaught, will arrive at the capital
between one and two o'clock on Tiles-
day morning. No credence is placed
In the report that the duke will pro-
see,: to England, lt is regarded as
more likely that the term of the gov-
erncr-gcn-jral  will  be extended.
The government has made several
Ineffectual attempts to get in touch
with Sir (ieorge Foster, who has b.en
in Newfoundland with the Dominion
trade commission. The commission
wa- due to arrive at Sydney Monday.
The report that a German cruiser
has been off Sydney has suggested
the possibility that Sir Oeorge and
the ether members of the commission
may be in danger of capture. At any
rate, his colleagues of the* cabinet are
anxious to hear from  him.
Would Man H. M. C. S. Niobe.
It is  suggested here that steps  be
taken immediately tor the manning
Of the Niobe, which Is now lying in
Halifax harbor unmanned. The crew
of this vessel was Iransferred to the
Kainbow. The presence or the Cerman cruiser Leipsic on the Pacific
coast inakts it impossible to retrnns- i
fer them. It is believed here that If
volunteers were called for the service
on the Niobe thousands of maritime
province sailors would offer their services. It is realized that of course
a number of Kkilled officers und engi
neers would be required in addition,
but these, it is believed, could he
made up of naval reserves.

Son   01   Wealthy   Peasant.
This modern FUchaiieu is the son of
a fairly wealth peasant of Tobolsk.
Ile had but little schooling and led an
uneventful life until 80 years old,
when he developed regilious fervor,
became a lay monk and went on a pilgrimage. At the monasteries he via-
iteil he picked up some learning and
also managed to receive a letter of Introduction to Bishop Tbeofan at St.
Petersburg.   This was in 1300.
Through the influence of the bishop
the peasant began to meet the Influential people of the city and court.
His mystic philosophy created interest, and he had the gift of repartee
and  polite conversation.
At first Rasputin stuck to his peasant garb, in which lie made a picturesque figure But soon he took up an
elegant style of dressing and living,
which excited the envy of Bishop The-
I pfan. The bishop obtained an order
to exile Rasputin to Siberia. Hut not
only did Rasputin's appeal to the czar
save him, but caused the bishop to be
dismissed to Poltowa without even
time to see his dying father.
Other powerful officials tried to
check the advance of Rasputin only
to find themselves in disfavor. Ilas-
putin became the intimate friend of
the royal family, gave orders to the
ministers and conducted himself as
the supreme power.
The only successful attempt to Induce tiie court to send Rasputin away
resulted disastrously for the plotters.
Before leaving Rasputin warned the
empress that misfortune was sure to
follow. When the heir to the throne
fell ill the frightened empress recalled
the   favorite  in  haste. |
Since his return Rasputin's power
has continued to grow. His counsel
' is called for in deciding every fines-
I tion of importance, lt is said on high.
I authority that he brought about the
: ministerial change last year that Bav-
ed Russia from a war with Austria.
He lived as a prince with a magnifi-
I cent villa at \,altu. In Crimea.   One ol
his daughters  by his peasant  wife is
being educated in an aristocratic girls'
I college In  St.  Petersburg and  is chief
companion   of   the  emperor's    daughters.     Rasputin   is  even   repor'ed   to
address the czar as "thru!" and "thee," J
j 0   freedom   denied   even     the     grand
I dukes.
A month ago Rasputin was ordained !
a priest by a minor bishop of his native district. This act has aroused j
the antagonism of the powerful heads J
Of the church. It is with these big ecclesiastics that Rasputin will now I
have to deal In holding his position.

ably, and I can see no reason why the
entire countrj and the northwest iu
particular should not derive much material advantage from such a serious
undertaking aa war."

By D. Maxwell Merry
About two million families in Canada use everyday, at least, one domestic product or another, which
is advertised. Tha| is to say, they wash with a certain soap, drink a certain tea, eat a certain breakfast food, take a certain medicine or go to bed on a
certain mattress, when they would have used a different soap, tea, food, medicine or mattress, if the
particular kind which, in fact, they do use. had never
been advertised.
But not one of these two million families habitually use any one of these or of the hundreds of
other advertised articles because it was advertised.
The reason is quite different. These advertised articles are used because the users like them.
If a woman once tastes a tea that she does not
like, no amount of advertising will make her drink
it again. If a woman washes her face with a soap
that injures her complexion, advertising will never
induce her to change her opinion in regard to that
particular soap.
You can introduce your goods by advertising
that it is the quality of the goods themselves that
keeps the door open to them.   Thus we arrive at a
bed rock.   It is the merit of the goods advertised
which sells the goods.   Clever advertising will sell
good merchandise, but no advertising will sell twice
to the same person merchandise that is not, or is
not believed by that person to be, worth the money.
Here we come to a curious mistake held by people whose own practice should show them their error. I mean the common idea that advertising-
will sell everything���that it is noisy advertising and
not merit that sells the goods.
As I have frequently stated in these articles, the
simple explanation of an article and the special features that are likely to appeal to the public is the
best advertising that can be used. Big words and
resounding phrases may look good to the advertiser, but they don't sell goods. The shortest words
and the shortest sentences tell the tale of any product better than the most academic story that could
ever be written.

city, made .by,ar.. f, ,W. Wittlch. the
11 cently appointed city bacteriologist.
In hu. report to the city council Dr
McQ-iarrle. commenting upon tbe tests
made by Dr. Wittlch. states that although in five- instances the number
��>f bacteria is ,vory high. In no case
was any disease prancing germs dissevered. This gpes to show that the
milk vendor* as a rule are not so
much lacking in^cleanllneas aa in storage facilities,,    .,
While np -itateil figure is established, It is generally recognized that 100 ���
��no bacteria germs is the limit allowed in one cubic centimetre of milk
flurlnp the summer months, this figure being considerably less ln the winter months. Dr. Wittlch. in hla report
recommends that the milk dealers
whose tests average above the Tecog-
nized limit, , should. flas .eurlze their
milk unless thqy can use cleaner
methods in handling. The test of the
coquitlam lake water, also made by
Dr. \Vittich, was found to be sterile.

L'..le Can Be Accomplished, However,
Until  Tax Collections Begin to
Come in.
financial matters held sway at the
Hurnaby council meeting last night,
v> ���"> little being accomplished as it
was felt thut until the flow of the tax
rece 1 Is is established, little collateral
1 be Bpared for municipal purposes.
The appeal of the board of park
commissioners of Central Park for a
grunt in order to improve the ground..
fronting the agricultural hall, was
laid river for three weeks. Councillor Miiniy pleaded that the sum of
$200 lie set aside for that purpose
but the three  weeks' hoist carried.
Several property owners' made complaint that instead of their land being
assessed as improved property it was
made out as *Viid land with a consequent increase in taxation. Houses are
hull, on the lots the petitioner^ alleged.
The clerk informed the council that
it would be impossible to make a refund after the court nf revision had
completed its work, which led Heeve
Kraser to come forward with a desire
to have the department responsible
for such errors investigated. Nothing
was  done,  however.
The ('. N'. R. wrote again to the
council explaining 'hat land along the
Fraser river was for railway purposes
nnd therefore was exempt from taxation until 1924 according to the railway act. Municipal Clerk Moore explained that the property was still held
under the name of a Mr. Field and
with this data tn work ou. 'lie council instructed t'r.e municipal solicitor
