British Columbia has responded magnificently to every demand of
patriotism since the war began, and I believe can be depended
on to "carry on" until victory is won.
"This nquett is being mailed to all mayors and reeves in the
province, to government agents or other officials in unorganized
districts, and to the heads of public andjpatriotic associations.
"Wherever there are branches of the Canadian Red Cross
Society, they are being asked to make the collection, and all those
whom this letter reaches are requested to assist.
"The  Canadian Red  Cross Society  having established three i
district   centers covering the province,   I am advised  that the

APPEAL OF THE JOINT WAR COMMITTEE
It becomes necessary for the Order of St. John and the
British Red Cross Society to appeal once more to the
generosity of their friends and supporters at. home and
overseas for funds to carry on the work of mercy for the
sick and wounded of His Majesty's forces.
The Joint Comtnitte has decided again to make such
appeal on October eighteenth, and we earnestly beg your
assistance in making it known to the people of the
Dominion.
Our Red Cross work is now costing eight thousand
pounds [app. $40,000] a day, and increases rather than
diminishes.
Our help is given in every theater of the War and lo
troops from every part of the Empire, and will have to
be continued for some time, even when victory has been
achieved.
We are deeply grateful for the munificent help received
from sympathizers in all parts of the world, and we trust
that with your assistance the appeal made on "Our Day"
will meet with a response which will enable us to continue
to do all that is humanly possible to lessen the sufferings of
those on whose behalf we plead.
Their Majesties the King and Queen and her Majesty
Queen Alexandra have graciously given us their patronage
and support.

MONDAY, OCT. I
London: At a late hour the
ban on press despatches from
the Franco-Belgian front has not
been raised and the world is left
to guess the reason for it.
British casualties during September totalled 104,598,including
18,938 killed.
Hostile airplanes again raided
London last night,
are available.
THE MINER WAR BULLETINS
*8 German artillery is active along
the entire western front in Flanders.
Nine were killed and 42 injured
in the last German air raid on
London. Eight enemy machines
participated in the raid, of which
one of the Gotha type,the largest
enemy machines known, was
downed.

Rome : A surprise attack,
carried out with complete success, gave the Italians an opportunity to rectify their line to
their advantage between Sella di
Dol and the northern slopes of
Monte San Gabrielle, 224 prisoners and a number of machine
guns being captured in the operation. The new line was
maintained solidly against several
Austrian counter-attacks.
Italian air operations are again
of importance, their airmen once
more sweeping over the Austrian
naval base at Pola, which was
bombed by a big squadron. A
number of Austrian military
establishments in the Carso zone
were also successfully attacked
by the Italians.
Paris: The German losses
No details j during the period of Sept. 20-27
are known to have been terrific.
Their casualties were so great
that 10 divisions, 150,000 men,
have had to be withdrawn for
reorganization. Seven divisions
were practically wiped out, and
the total losses to the 10divisions
in killed, wounded and missing
exceeds 60 per cent.
A  German  attack  on  a wide
front was repulsed.
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 3
Paris: There was no iniantry
action yesterday on our front.
The artillery action was quite
intense along the Aisne front,
particularly in the sectors of
Pantheon and Hurteboise. On
the right bank of the Meuse the
bombardment continued violently
on both sides north of Bois le
Chaume.
London: Heavy fighting now
rages over a wide section in
western Flanders. Savage German counter - attacks directed
against our lines were repulsed.
A German attempt to recapture
Zonnekeke failed under the intense barrage fire of the British
batteries.
Berlin: On the Ypres-Pas-
chendaele road yesterday the
British were driven from a crater
line.
Copenhagen : Germany is
holding Belgium as a pawn
against the day when the powers
will gather to discuss peace.
Michalis denies that h'e ever
offered to witodraw the German
troops.
Paris: France has opened hot-
campaign of air reprisals against
Germany by bombarding Treves,
Coblenz, and Frankfort-on-lhe-
Main,   indicting  great   damage.
Petrograd: The war office
reports heavy fighting in the
Groudouli sector. The Russians
have advanced a mile in the last
24 hours.
An American Port: The captain of an American ship arriving here reports that a German
raider, disguised as a harmless
merchantman,is cruising in Soulh
American waters, and was sighted sixty miles off the Brazilian
coast. The government has sent
out wireless warnings to Allied
shipping.
crest of Paschendaele and Ghel-
vulet ridges. Germans are surrendering by hundreds. The
British are now within a short
distance of Poelcappelle.
With these ridges in their
possession the British are in
plain sight of the main objective
of their operations,the submarine
bases of Ostend and Zeebrugge.
British planes bombed enemy
camps in Macedonia.
A policy of reprisals for German air raids has been decided
upon. Germany will now receive
measure for measure for her
frightfulness from Great Britain.
The nation is now stirred and
action will come quickly. A
ministry of reprisals will be appointed.
Only thirteen British merchant
vessels of 1600 tons and over
were sunk by U-boats last week.
Italian shipping losses from the
submarine activities totalled but
three.
Paris: Another aerial raid on
Germany was made last night by
the French. The cities of Frankfort and  Rastatt were  bombed.
'Ihe Germans are experimenting with a tank armed with three
inch cannon and machine guns.
The forward end of the tank is
fitted with a spur-like ram, while
the upper part bears a superimposed cupola, and armor-plate
descends sufficiently to protect
the caterpillar wheels, which
are almost invisible.

Tokio: One thousand persons
are believed to have perished in
a typhoon which ravaged the
interior of Japan. There are
100,000 sufferers. The army is
carrying out relief work. The
damage is placed at not less than
$5,000,000.
The 30,000 metal trades workers who have been on strike at
San Francisco, have returned to
work.
