London, Aug. 10���In the house of
commons this afternoon Home Secretary McKenna announced that King
George had ordered the release of
all suffragettes serving terms in British prisons as the refenlt of their militant tactics.
As the suffragettes declared a truce
and ordered cessation of all militant
tactics when the general European
war first appeared to be threatening,
the order of the king today was another step toward the settlement of
all  internal troubles.
Premier Asquith also announced in
the commons this afternoon that prisoners arrested for recent strike disorders had also been  released.
F. I). Acland, under secretary to
Sir Edward Grey, declared tbat the
government was not aware of any
declaration of war or any act of hostility by Austria against England, up
to the present time.

been   decided    to    send      territorial

It is accepted here that the British'
squadron   has   carried   its   pursuit   ofi
the Germans  into the Adriatic.    The
3ritiBh squadron is very powerful. In-
1 eluded In it are the battle cruisers In-'

OURTHE���The river in southern Belgium along
the valley of which the Germans now are reported to
have abandoned their advance. The stream, which is a
small one, flows within ten miles of the Grand Duchy
of Luxemburg, from which territory the French are
said to have driven their foes. The point evidently aimed at the kaiser's troops when they penetrated French
territory along the Ourthe was Sedan, where the French
army under Napoleon III surrendered to the Prussians
at the close of the last Franco-Prussian war.
LIBAU���A fortified Russian naval base and naval
dockyard on the shores of the Baltic sea about 150 miles
north of Konigsberg, the great German fortress in Eastern Prussia. Libau was reported to have been bombarded and destroyed by the German navy, but this has
not been confirmed and is extremely doubtful. It was
from Libau the Russian admiral, Rojestvensky, sailed
with his ill-fated fleet during the Russian-Japanese war
to meet a crushing defeat at the hands of Admiral Togo
at Tsushima.
TSING TAU���Germany's fortified naval base in
Chinese waters, located in Shan-Tung province. Unlike
Wei-Hai-Wei, Britain's naval base in Northeastern Chinese waters, Tsing Tau is well protected and is said to
have modern fortifications capable of withstanding a
determined attack. Should the Japanese decide to take
an active hand in the war, it is highly probable their
first move at sea would be a blockade or an attempt at
the destruction of Tsing Tau.

to the meeting Mr. Oakomuto from

city, who significantly stated that
Home of the Japanese iu Vancouver
might shortly offer their services as

sidered to live in amity with thi1 Canadians in Vancouver, and were prepared to take a stand in regard to the
why that he hoped would clear up all
in is representations.
Mr Kaburagl outlined lhe causes of

Clamp Ecxing Game After  Last
Night's  Display.
Another snag was located last night
in the city councils efforts to eliminate dilapidated and unsanitary build
ings in ih lower portion of the city
when Q, B. Corbould, appearing for
Sin/; Kee, a Chinese merchant, asknd
on what .grounds the city was taking
action against tin- proprietor.
Acting on a report made by the
building inspector and the lire chief,
the city council lock steps to have
the building closed as being unsafe
for habitation and unsanitary.
According to Mayor Cray, who paid
a visit to ;iio building, be Found conditions appalling, us many as 60 people being cooped up in the structur.
where the light was Inadequate and
the air foul. In one room, '.IxlL! feet
and not six foot high, he found accommodation for six people The patio
Of fl.iss in the room was not over IS
inches square.
Mr. Corbould made objections to the
city taking action before notifying his
client   just   what   was   necessary     in
order that lhe building could be placed
! in habitable Bhape.   To this objection
City  Solicitor G. K.  Martin  explained
i that the municipal act gave por.er to
tlie   city   to  condemn   buildings    and
that it was up to the owner of such
I buildings to show  cause to the    city
, why such should not be ordered   torn
j down.
A way out of the dispute was pro-
| posed by Mayor dray, who suggested
that tho building inspector put a life
; on the building and that following
; permission to make improvements the
owner.  Sing  Kee,  sign  an  agreement
putting a certain life on the structure
In  tbe meantime  the tenents  will be
to  ordered out of the block.   The matter
will again como up lor discussion two

Apartment   Block
For Sale
We are instructed by the creditors of Arthur
Bradley to offer for sale the frame apartment block
on Lot 6, Block 18, Sub. Block 7, on the south side
of Fifth Avenue, between Twelfth and Thirteenth
Streets, New Westminster, known as the Bradley
Apartments. The building is particularly well built,
and contains 19 suites of three and four rooms each
with bathrooms and every convenience, including
house 'phones, electric stoves, and large laundry
with stationary tubs, etc. The property cost $23,700
and has a mortgage on it of $9,500.
Tiio  boxing  game as it  affects  this'
portion of tho province was lasi night,
given  a  foul  blow  from  which  it  will
take   some   months   to   recover   when,
questionable decisions and  a  hugging
display  on  the part of the  main  contestants  at  a   fifteen   round   battle  at
i Brighouse nigh created u riot.
The trouble started during the preliminary which was a ten-round affair between Hilly Wright of Seattle
and a scrapper named .McConnell. The
latter, who was substituted in place of
.Sammy Good, gained a lead throughout the entire bout, getting his man
down twice in the seventh for the
count ol nine. I'erry Queenan. the
referee, raised a small sized riot at
tho finish of the ten counters when
he gave Wright the decision. A more
unpopular decision and one calling for
the ? murk has rarely been seen at
any scrap, lt was so rotten and the
crowd so demonstrative that Reeve
Bridges, a spectator, ordered the
chief of police to stop the main bout.
Officials connected with promoting
such scraps held a confab with the
I chief magistrate of Richmond, who
i later rescinded his decision and al-
| lowed the la-round battle to proceed
i 'n "prayer meeting" style, the spec-
! *ators not being allowed to speak
above a whisper. Barrieau had nothing, while Weeks was lacking everything that makes a middleweight, and
about the only comment to be made
on the scrap was that it was a bunny
hug  poorly executed.
It was called a draw. Perhaps had
Iln crowd been allowed to let loose
ii.  might  have been  called  a   riot.

a motion was proposed to die tho communication. It was finally decided to
notify the electrical workers that the
council would receive a dl legation any

for the meetings of tho electric light
Chairman Goulet, of the light committee, explained the situation leading
up to the letter. Tho agreement between tho city and the electrical workers has expired. Some time ago the

lian plan would be to annihilate the
little Servian army by surrounding it
witii a sudden and energetic frontal
attack. The impossibility or the Ser-1
vians assuming the offensive in the
only practical direction, to the north
of the Save Danube line, combined
with the enveloping configuration of
the frontier, especially facilitates the
execution of this plan on tiie pait of
the Australians, because it permits
mem to concentrate under whatever
conditions they please.
"I stated above that it is scarcely
admissible to count on the bulk of
the Austrian troops being concentrated in  Bosnia.    This results from the
lng. particularly of the imponderable
factors, though essential, such as the;
spirit of the troops and capability of
the chiefs. The question is also pertinent as to whether or not Servia
has taken precaution regarding replenishing of ammunition, particular-!
ly  for her artillery."

Advertising succeeds when what is advertised
deserves to succeed, and attractive advertising cannot succeed otherwise. To be afraid to advertise is
almost a confession that what one really fears is the
quality of the goods or else the management of the
store or business, as this alone can endanger the
money invested in publicity.
Compared with the difficulty of buying for the
retail trade, the difficulty of advertising the goods
thus bought, so as to sell them, is trifling.  The grocer, the druggist, the men's furnisher and the general
dealer have to estimate, from their own observation*
and intuition, what the people of their town are likely
to buy if it is shown���a matter requiring considerable skill.   A mistake will land them with goods for
which there is no market, in some cases with goods
that will go out of fashion if they do not move them
within a limited period. ���
There is room for all sorts of miscalculations.
The quality may be wrong, prices may be too high,
the buyer may not fit the fancy of the prospective
customers. Every dealer has to meet and combat
these dangers. Greater business ability, judgment
and courage are required for this than for merely
letting the public know what goods are on offer.
The retail advertising problem is two-sided.   A
retailer wants to increase his trade with his existing-
customers and he also wants to make new customers.
Thoughtful and well-planned advertising will accomplish both ends.   With a good article or a good stone
to advertise there is no reason at all why operations
on quite a small scale should not be promptly profitable. 	
It is a great mistake to think that success can
only be won with a large initial outlay. No beginner
would be justified in ordering full page or half page
advertisements, but this is not a serious handicap.
A $200 advertisement may leave no more profit by
the time it is paid for than a $5 advertisement,
though it will sell more goods.
If a store is well managed the new trade brought
by every advertisement will more or less be permanent. The work is naturally half done when the peo^
pie are brought to the counter, but they must be
so treated when they come there that they will come
again and keep coming.
