Paris Witnesses Fight of Airships.
Paris, Se"pt. 2.-11:20 p.m.���A fight in the air over
Paris took place this evening. Three German aeroplanes
hovered over the capital and immediately the French machines were sent up to engage them.
Meanwhile rifles and machine guns mounted on public buildings kept up a constant fire. By this means one
of the German machines became separated from the
others, and the French aviators flew swiftly in its direction. The Germans opened fire, to which the Frenchmen
replied vigorously.
The engagement seemed to turn to the disadvantage
of the German, who mounted speedily to a higher level
and. holding this position, was savd from further attack.
He finally disappeared in a northwest direction over Fort
Louisville, after a vain pursuit.
Trie other German aeroplanes also escaped the fire
of the guns and after circling about for a considerable
time, disappeared from view.
British Cavalry Force Back Germans.
London, Sept. 8.���12:10 a.m.���The official press bureau has issued the following statement:
"Continuous fighting has been in progress along almost the whole line of battle. The British cavalry engaged with distinction the cavalry of the enemy, pushing
them back and capturing ten guns.
The French army has continued the offensive and
gained ground in the Lorraine district. In other regions
of the war the Russian army is investing Koenigsburg.
The Russian victory, which is complete at Lemberg, has
already been announced."
London. Sept. 2.���Wounded men fn
tho lio.-pita.ln of Boulogne relate to the I

said, told of a trick which the British
learned In the Boer war. and which
worked well against the Germans.
"The enemy," lie said, "before sending their infantry against our positions opened a hot artillery tire. Our
artillery replied at llrst warmly, and
then gun after gun of the British batteries went silent.
"What's up now?' I asked a comrade. There were a few minute-
more of artillery fire from the Germans, and then Infantry came cn ill
soltd formation. We received them
wltb rifle fire. Still they came on
and still we mowed them down. They
were getting closer, and we could
plainly see the dense masses moving.
Tin n suddenly the whole of our artillery opened lire.
"You see our guns had not heen
silenced at all. and it was a trick to
draw the Germans on. They went
down in whole fields, for our guns
got them in open ground. It was impossible for those behind to come up
past the dead."

The name Si. Petersburg does not

Itussian capital from St. Petersburg
lo Petrograd owing to the Oerman
form of the name under which the
city has been known since its foundation. Other cities in Itussia with German inline., such as Schlusselburg,
etc.. have asked lhat their uppelations
be Russianized. It has beeu suggested also to discontinue the use of Ger-
inu.i words such as "Kammerhcrr" in

���The following offici.: communication was issued by tbe Russian war
office tonight:
"After a battle lasting seven days
the Russian army seized heavily fortified fortifications around I .em berg
icapital of Galicia) in Austria-Hungary, about ten or twelve miles from
the town. The Russians then advanced towards the principal forts.
"After a battle yesterday which was
fiercely contested, the Austrians were
obliged to retreat In disorder, abandoning heavy and light guns, artillery
and field kitchens.
"Our advance guard and cavalry
pursued the enemy, who suffered
enormous losses in killed, wounded
aud prisoners.
Austrians Completely Defeated.
"The Austrian army operating in
the neighborhood of Lemberg was
composed of the third, eleventh and
twelfth corps and part of the seventh
and fourteenth corps. This army appears to have been completely defeated.
"During the pursuit by the Russian
troops the Austrians, who beat a retreat from Guila I.ipa. were forced to
abandon an additional 31 guns. Our
troops are moving over roads encumbered with artillery and convoys loaded with provisions of various kinds.
"The total number of guns captured
by the Russians around Lemberg
amounts to 150."
Honolulu. Sept. 2.���The German

Captain Schoenberg asked for 1200

Germane Within Fifty Mile* of Paris.
I-Ondon, Sept. 2.���The curtain over
the battle drama in Northwestern
France has momentarily been raised.
" shows the allies battling desperately to prevent the success of the German assaults on the upper Oise. less
than fifty miles from Paris. Today ie
apparently the fourth in the second
great battle.
On the upper Oise the British are
fighting desperately to prevent the
Germans from obtaining one of the
most direct routes fo Paris. The battle raged Sunday and Monday, and by-
sheer weight of numbers the Germans
j secured a slight advance. Military
i experts point out that from the present position on the upper Oise river,
the German advance would become Increasingly difficult, owing to the
natural features of the country as well
ns the artificial defences that will
have to be encountered.
On the eastern war stage. Russia
frankly confesses to disaster to two
army corps, with the  loss of    three
seem to have triumphed. Galicia bas
been successfully invaded and Lemberg will soon be evacuated, according to reports from the St. Petersburg
war office. If this Ib true, the Austrian menace to Russian Poland will
be ended and the Russian forces can
begin to converge for the march on
Berlin, the Russian objective in North
Galicia apparently being Koenig-
shutte. whence they can march on
Berlin via Breslau.
Asmit Austrians Are Beaent.
The announcement from Vienna
that preparations have been made for
the evacuation of U niberg. capital of
Galicia, in view of the "inevitability"
of an approaching Russian occupation,
is the first official admission that tbe
Austrians have been worsted in tlie
prolonged lighting in Galicia.
Moreover, Russian accounts from
this field of operations have continued
cheerful. Even the defeat of tbe
Russians by the Germans in East
Prussia has unabated the optimism of
Petrograd I St. Petersburg). The chief
of the Russian general staff*calls the
affair merely a reverse due to the unexpected appearance of heavy German
reinforcements, accompanied by siege
guns, apparently from the fortressea
of Thorn and Graudenz.

story of the fighting near Mons was
told to an Express reporter by one
of the British wounded who was
brought here Monday:
"We had left the shelter of a little
forest and opened out, supported by
tlie North Country regiment. Our
colonel warned us that the German
Infantry  was advancing.
"We had hardly extended ourselves
along the grass when patches of blue
and green were seen on the skyline
and soon battalions of the enemy were
made out following each other at
regular intervals.
"Our batteries let rip and gouged
holes through them. 'Bravq,' shouted
my platoon commander as he watched through his glasses.
"Now the order was given to fix
bayonets. Before the enemy had arrived the artillery fire had increased
until It was an inferno. German aviators were directing their guns and
at times we fired on aeroplanes, but
our shells were ineffective. Our gunners had an awful time as the German cavalry got around behind us
and charged right up to the guns.
Very few of the Germans escaped.
however, lor whole platoons rushed to
Cie rescue emptying their magazines
as they ran.
"A moment later the Germans were
on us from the front. We let them
come until their breasts rose above
the neighboring hillock and then we
decimated them, They fell hack in
confusion and fell to the ground. .
"Scopes of machine guns were turned oh us and We were ordered to prepare to charge.' .On the'word of command we sprang from the ground as
one man nnd with yell after yell we
charged the advancing Prussians. As
we neared their ranks we fired Indiscriminately and only a few remained to cross bayonets with us.
The remainder rushed oft and were
shot in the back as thev went. They
lefl more than half their regiment cn

\ntwerp, via London. Sept. 2.���8:15

concerning the manoeuvres of the
Zeppelin airships over Antwerp last
night and early today was Issued tonight:
"A Zeppelin airship was reported at
10:30 o'clock last night near the forts
lo the south of the city and also near
the River Nethe. It passed over Alost
toward Termoude and Ghent and then
returned toward Antwerp and tried to
fly over the city, but for a time a
heavy artillery fire kept it outside the
ouler fortifications.
"At 3 o'clock this morning, five or
six bombs were dropped from it. Later
seven bombs were dropped in the
Pare Du Rosigsol, close to some
houses which have been converted into hospitals and which were flying
the Red Cross flag. These houses
were damaged and ten or twelve persons slightly wounded. After the
bomb dropping exploits tbe Zeppelin,
rose and disappeared in the direction
of Malines.

A delicate question has arisen between Great Hritain and Krance on one
side ami the United States on the other over the proposal of the Americans
to buy out many of the German merchant ships now lying interned in American harbors for the purpose of re-establishing an American merchant marine during the present crisis.
Both Britain and France have entered mild protests against the project, to which Secretary of the American Treasury McAdoo has answered
that the right of the United States to buy merchant ships of any nationality cannot be disputed by any nation.
The main objection of the allies seems to be that by buying ships from
Germany the Americans would be helping to finance the German empire in
its present unwarranted and unrighteous war and this objection has every
appearance of being well-grounded* provided, always, the government at
Washington considers Berlin In the wrong In the. conflict. If, however, the
United States authorities refuse to hold any opinion whatever as to the
merits of the struggle in Europe, it places the matter on a different plane
and in some measure, though perhaps small, affects the validity of the con-
lentlon of France and Great Britain.
The United States for years has deplored tbe almost total non-existence
of its merchant marine and in the present war crisis the country sees a
golden opportunity to rehabilitate that exceedingly important, but missing
link in its business.
Should the Americans purchase a number of the German ships now
idle in American ports, it would be possible for them to ship cargoes to
Germany via Holland, provided the allies did not care to go to the length of
risking trouble with the United States by holding up such consignments.
The only possible route would be through Holland and Denmark, both at
present neutral, but how long Holland and Denmark will remain neutral is
a doubtful question and should they throw in their lot with France and Great
Britain���for they certainly never would join Germany���the danger of a
misunderstanding with  the United States  would be removed.
At any rate, it would seem that trouble with the United States is the
last result to be desired by Great Britain and France and the governments
Of these countries may be relied upon to exercise the greatest care in handling this delicate question.
St. Petersburg, SepL 2.���How the
{town of Gorodok was held against lhe
Austrian attack by a handful of men
is explained to some extent In a soldier's letter. There were only .00
soldiers at Gorodok when the patrols
leported 20(0 Austrians advancing towards camp. The men were divided
into three detachments and two of
these took up positions outside the
town in the woods, so disposed lo give
the Impression of numbers of cavalry.
Then thirty men were sent to attract
the enemy's notice.
These men crept through woods
and undiT cover until they were able
to come suddenly upon the Austrian
main body, when pretending to be
scared they turned and fled in apparent panic. The enemy pursued them
headlong and wire led into ambush,
being caught by a cross fire of rifles
and Maxims. A then, and were killed
and wounded and the rest retired, pursued by Cossacks. From Vilna comes
a story of a 17 year old daughter of a
senator who has dunned male attire
and disappeared from her home leaving a letter that she is going to fight
for her country.
Toronto, Sept. 2.- Word was received here by cable this morning of
the lirst Canadian killed In action in
the European war, Captain Betram
Denison, nephew of Felice Magistrate
Denison of Toronto and son of Admiral John Denison of Toronto.
Captain Denison was serving, it is
understood, with the Yorkshire infantry. The meagre details received by
cable merely state that he was killed
in action in Belgium.
He was married to a daughter ol
the late Samuel Nordheimer. who was
German consul here for many years.
Mrs. Denison and one daughter survive.
There was once a good woman who couldn't make
pies, but had two kind neighbors who kept her supplied
with that article of food.
One day her two neighbors got to fighting, and so
badly injured one another that neither of them was able
to make pies for some considerable time.
What did the pie-less one do? Go without pie? Not
Canada today is in the position of the lady-who-could-
not-make pies.
There are many things she does not make at home
because she has been getting them so easily from Continental Europe. But now her neighbors in Europe are at
war with one another and so���for some time to come���
cannot supply those things.
Canada is too thrifty and serious and sensible a housewife to sit with hands folded at such a time.
While loyally contributing a number of her best sons
to help settle things in Europe, Canada will not entirely
overlook her other sons who remain at home.
The manufacturers of Canada will get out the recipe
'book and learn how to make many of the things that
Europe can no longer send because of the war. And in
the making of those things the manufacturers of Canada
should have the support of the financial interests and the
people of Canada.
And after the war is over���if not before���perhaps
our neighbors in Europe will be coming to Canada for
some of this "pie"���importing from Canada some of the
things Canada now imports from them.
in the present campaign in Europe the French troops have shown an
ability to do successfully what many military experts doubted, they possessed
the necessary moral strength to accomplish, a masterly retreat.
Impressionable, volatile, often In danger of becoming hysterical, French
soldiers heretofore always have been at their best in a spectacular charge
or a smashing advance, but In the retirement down the valley of tbe Meuse,
in the face of the oncoming German hordes, they have demonstrated a new
phase of their character which has written for France as glorious a story
as any in her annals.
The solidity and stolidity of the British square has become almost a
household proverb among the nations; its ability to hold Its position or retire to fresh ground in good order in the face of terrific charges has been
a governing feature in almost every British campaign; In short, its bulldog
tenacity has made possible the great empire which It is defending today.
But th? French, valiant soldiers, have won their reputation on entirely different lines. British grit has equalled French dash on many an occasion,
but the forlorn hope entailing great loss of life ever has been regarded by
British commanders as a last resort to be tried only when all other means
have failed.
What has been looked, upon as the difference between the fighting-
characteristics of the two nations is aptly illustrated in the famous charge
of the Light Brigade at Balaclava, ln British history this is regarded as an
heio'c blunder, ,but, nevertheless, a blunder. French history is replete with
similar incidents, accepted by the French people as evidence of the coolness
and dash of their soldiers in the face of danger.
In the retreat down the Meuse the French evidently have taken a leaf
from the book of their British allies and in executing their masterly retiring movement they have proved, themselves apt pupils.
That the British have been able to accomplish the same thing with but
little comment is accounted for by the fact that it is an accepted maxim
of warfare that British troops, whether In retreat or advancing, may be
depended upon to the last man to hew right to the line.

Ixmdon, Sept. 2���Advices have been
received from St. Petersburg that the
Russian general staff frankly confesses to disaster to two army corps,
including the loss of three generals.
A telegram received in an official
quarter in London today from the
chief of the Russian general staff declares that tlie Russian reverse lu
Eastern Prussia is to be regarded as
purely local and due to the sudden reinforcements of the Germans (probably at Graudenz and Thorn) and the
arrival of their siesie guns. Russian
reinforcements also immediately arrived. I j i

LANDS'URM - This is tlie name applied to the last line of defence in
Germany, supposed to be called out
only In an emergency or for the defence of the country against invasion and it is significant that
orders have been issued for all members of the l.indsturm to hold themselves in readiness. The landsturni
is a home guard and really is composed or all material which Is not
efficient or capable enough to go on
the country's offensive lighting line.
The duties of the landsturm, as laid
down by Herman law, are clearly
outlined and .re of considerable Interest at this time, lt ls specifically
stated that its members nre not to
wear uniforms, so that the enemy
may not know them; that they are
to harass the enemy's lines of communication, break up his hospitals,
snipe at his soldiers and, In fact,
wage a species ef guerilla warfare
on his troops. It is a striking example of German Inconsi.t.ney that
what the Oerman government expects of its own land-turm it condemns and punishes with atrocious
fury In the Belgians. As a justification of the actions of the German
troops in Belgium In shooting down
without trial or investigation men,
women and boys who are accused
of offering resistance to the kaiser's
advance, German authorities have
been at great pains to explain,
especially in the United States,
that such conduct is Justifiable,
since the inhabitants of it hostile
ccuntry not in uniform are not sup-
IiUHO.i to take a part in the fighting.
In view of the fact that the German landstunii has direct orders
from the Cerman government to go
without uniform and in every way
to harass an invader, even to break
up his hospitals undi r the red cross
flag, the Cerman policy in Belgium
is. to put it mildly, hard to explain
and justify.
WINDSOR-CLIVB���On the last list of
British casualties appears the name
of Lieutenant Archer Windsor-CHve
of the Coldstream Guard., second
son of the Earl of Plymouth, who
has died from wounds received at
Mons. Lieutenant Wlndsor-Cllve was
one of the three sons of the Brst
Earl ol Plymouth, another of hi.
brothers having pre-deceased him,
anil he came of one of the beat
known Bffhtlng stocks in Groat Britain. Willie ihe lieutenant's father.

the fourteenth Baron Windsor, a
title created in 1-29. His ancestor,
Will m Kit. Walter, was castellan
of v, ld-icir castle under Maud. The
casl la.n'8 son attended Henry II.
in h ��� wars ln Normandy; the lirst
Bar Windsor attended Henrj
in his Pri nch expedition anl
rulsbed himself ai Ihe siege
nuenne In 1613; the third

il of the fleet under James I :

his n ele became the seventh ear!
nnd  tlie   barony   fell   Into  abeyance

dead lieutenant,  was raised to    the
earldom in 1906.
ef   T
the t
the ������
method ol fighting since the kaiser's
troops have invaded Belgium and
France, reminds one of the tactic*
employed hy Napoleon In one particular, the reckless sacrifice of
nun. Human life evidently mean.i
nothing to the Gertpan commanders,
If, by the sacrifice of it. tbey can
gain an advantage. The .lapanese
in the Russian-Japanese wur fought
along similar Hues, but, with the
Japanese such methods were excusable, since his religion tauqht
the Jap that death on the battle
field was not only eotiinieiidublc, but
desirable. With Germany it Is different, for the Oermana claimed to
be leaders in civilization and professed Christianity. But militarism
in (Iermany has crushed all finer
feelings and the German commanders have nothing to fear from their
superiors If they gain their point,
though they sacrifice millions.
France is a republic and Great Britain is a limited monarchy, and In
both countries the governments are
responsible to the people. A French
or British commander would not
dare to face his countrymen again
if he wantonly sent his men to the
slaughter as the German generals
have bum doing during the put.t lew-
weeks. That even the kaiser tears
public opinion in his country is
shown by the manner in which he
has suppressed true reports of the
enormous losses bis troops have
sustained, but that he has suppressed them proves that he is giving Iiis genirals his full support In
their campaign of blood. Since the
Germans are so careless of the lives
of their own soldiers, it was hardly
to be expected that they would act
with any degree uf consideration towards the people of a country like
Belgium which offered such stubborn resistance to their advance.
POSEN���This province of Eastern
Prussia, with its. capital of the same
n,nne containing about seventy-five
thousand inhabitants, marks the
cen re of the most Important Held
of operations of the Russian advance on Germany. Through this
district lies the shortest route to
Berlin for the czar's troops, who,
evidently, are aiming to strike the
vail y of the War-he river, probably
north Of the fortified city Of I'osen,
which would be Isolated by an investing force as in the case of
Konlgsberg, and follow that stream
down its course through the town
of Landsberg and thence to the
Hiver Oder, the last strong lino of
German defence east of Berlin, it
is almost certain that the Russian
advance from now on will be slower
than it has been to this date, since
the  I'nseti Wartllc    route    is,    mon
strongly defended by the Germans,
The latter, however, It they should
succeed In blocking the czar's army
In this region, lay themselves open
to a flank attack from the other
Russian army operating farther
north, whose progress has been exceedingly rapid through a territory
scarcely defended at all.

London, Sept. 2.���Tbe Times' naval
correspondent, discussing the fact
that the German fleet has so far declined the British challenge to a
pitched battle by taking refuge in the
expedient of sowing mines In the
North sea. suggests that It may be
necessary for the admiralty, which
has declined to condescend to the German methods in this respect, to take
retaliatory measures iu the near future.
"We may either have to use mines
for the purpose of preventing German
mine-laying vessels leaving German
ports," says the correspondent, "or
may decide that crews of vessel! used
as mine-layers should be given Bhort
shift as pirates."

Citizens Will Be  Asked to Oo Their
Share Towards Providing for
Families of Men at Front.
Tonight at the city hall the citizens
of New Westminster will be asked to
form an organization which will take
care cf the families of those who have
been called or have volunteered for
service in the European war. Mayor
Gray has gent out notice, to all public
bodies and these will be represented
when the meeting Is call-d to order
at H o'clock by his worship.
The plan ls to organize a central
association, taking in al! organizations, both civic and fraternal, so that
the entire city will be covered. Once
this central committee is organized
it is expected that sub-committees will
be formed to take care of the various
districts in the city and also formulate- a scheme for a systematic appeal for assistance in cash, food and
Douglas, Isle ol Man. Sept. 2.���
There Is a movement in the Isle of
Man to revive the Manx Fenclbles. a
fine regiment of foot which was disbanded after the Napoleonic wars. The
colors of the old Fencibles are still
preserved in Douglas. Lord Raglan,
governor of the island, has communicated with the war office on the sub-1
ject ani pending a reply steps are
being taken to facilitate the raising
of the body.
Letter   Received   Here   Tells  of   Lies
Printed In Newspapers Throughout Kaiser's Empire.
That the real causes of the present
European war were wilfully withheld
from the German people and that
newspaper reports In the kalBer's empire told deliberate lies concerning
the movements of the Russian and
Japanese governments ts born out in
a letter received by the wife of a local
merchant from a lady friend in Germany.
This lady was spending the vacation at one of the German watering
places on the northern coast just
prior to the outbreak of war and, on
making her way south to her home,
she was compelled to stand several
hours in over-crowded carriages. Soldiers were massing at each station
and very few trains were uvallable
for non-combatants
The letter showed that the writer
had gathered from German papers
that Germany was perfectly justified
in warning Russia and that the German people were looking for assistance from England in holding back the
Russian hordes. A paragraph in the
letter stated that the newspapers reported the mobilization of the Japanese against Russia.
The lady herself is engaged to be
married to a (Ierman soldier and the
communication, mailed the day before
war was declared, stated that she
hoped to go to the front as a nurse
