To My People:
"At this grave moment in the struggle between my
people and a highly organized enemy who has transgressed
the laws of nations and changed the ordinance that binds
civilized Europe together, I appeal to you.
'1 rejoice in my Empire's effort and 1 feel pride in the

order that another may not inherit the free empire which
their ancestors and mine have built. I ask you to make
good these sacrifices.
"The end is not in sight. More men and yet more are
wanted to keep my armies in the field, and through them
to secure victory and an enduring peace. In ancient days
the darkest moment has ever produced in men of our race
the strongest resolve. I ask you, men of all classes, to
come forward voluntarily and take your share in these

Servians Holding Out
London: The Allies have asked the Servian headquarters to
resist the Teutons and Bulgarians
for only five days more, by which
time effective aid from the Allies
will be forthcoming, says the
Daily Telegraph's Nish correspondent under date of Sunday.
The correspondent adds that,
judging by the fine spirit the
Servians are displaying, they can
hold out double that time.
A despatch to Reuter's Telegram Co., from Athens, says
"Reliable news received concerning the last battle near Valandovo
is to the effect that the French
pursued the Bulgarians to the
The Bulgarians have been defeated in the sector of Krupuli,
to which three Servian regiments
from Strumnitza proceeded and
occupied the left bank of the
Vardar. The Bulgarians for two
days occupied a section of the
railway, but owing to a lack of
explosives failed to do serious
damage. The French occupy the
sector between Doiran and Grat-
The Bucharest correspondent
of the Times sends the following:
"The Servian troops have withdrawn from the neighborhood of
the Danube and the Austrians
have crossed the river, traversing
the island of Odakale. Austrian
forces will now obtain free passage through Bulgaria from Ar-
sova, where fifty steamers and
trawlers laden with munitions
have assembled."
Enemy Occupies Uskup
Saloniki: French authorities
state that the Teutonic invaders
in Servia have advanced less than
twelve miles from the Danube.
Bulgarians have occupied Uskup and hold the Nish-Saloniki
railroad to Vernya, a distance of
fifty miles.
A brigade of British troops has
left for Doiran, forty miles northwest of Saloniki, to advance on
Strumnitza in conjunction with
the French.
Russians Invade Turkey
London: Turkish troops are
concentrating at Burgas, Varna,
and other Black Sea ports, to
oppose the expected landing of
large Russian forces. German
troops have been entrusted with
the defence of the Bulgarian
coast, the Bulgar troops being
moved to the Servian frontier,
as it is feared they would not
resist the Russians.

the Germans has aroused great

Athens: A cabinet crisis has
culminated in the resignation of
Premier Zaimos, who was told by
.former premier Venizelos that
the government must depend for
a majority on a number of the
opposition, which is pro-Ally.
Sank Turkish Transport
Athens: A British submarine
on Sunday sank the Turkish
transport Carmen, laden with
munitions, in the Sea of Marmora.
The Austrian steamer Carmen,
of 4,424 tons, was tied up at
Constantinople at the beginning
of the war. It is probable that
it was this steamer, converted
into a Turkish transport, that
the submarine sent to the bottom.
She was built at Sunderland in
British Transport Torpedoed
London: An official announcement made public tonight says:
" J'he British transport Marquette
has been torpedoed in the Aegean
Sea. It is understood that only
99 of the personnel of the vessel
are unaccounted for. No further
details have been received."
The steamer Marquette before
she was taken into the service of
the British government belonged
to the Atlantic Transport Co.
She was a vessel of 7050 tons and
was built in Glasgow in 1897.
Must Assist Servia
London: Speaking in the house
of lords, the Marquis of Lans-
downe stated that the Servian
army, unaided, could hardly
withstand for long the pressure
of Austro-German forces on the
north with the "stab in the back"
of Bulgaria. The Servian premier appeals for speedy aid from

violent bombardment and several
counter-attacks by the enemy,
who suffered serious losses.

submarines have sunk four more
German steamers in the Baltic.
Fighting on Congo Line
Havre: That there has been
heavy fighting between Belgians
and Germans along the boundary
line of the Congo Free State and
German East Africa is indicated
by despatches just received by
the Belgian minister of colonies.
These advices say that the Germans were beaten with heavy
losses and put to flight by the
Belgians on September 11, near
the Rusisi delta and on September 29 near the frontier station
of Lavingi. The Belgians are
reported to have captured ma>
chine guns, rifles, and a quantity
of munitions.
French Aerial Plans
Paris: The formation of a
supplementary air fleet of five
thousand aeroplanes, the special
mission of which will be to conduct a ceaseless campaign of
destruction on German factories,
is the object of the new French
aerial league, headed by former
Premier Louis Barthou.
London: Roumania is watch

a possibility, though there is no
treaty agreement, that the two
nations will act in concert in
entering the war.
Greeks and Bulgarians Clash

Battles in Russia
Petrograd: "On the Dvinsk
front the enemy attacked to the
northeast of Gorbunako, and at
first succeeded in occupying some
of our trenches, but he was soon
dislodged by our vigorous counter attack. The fight was also
accompanied by an artillery duel
which still continues. During
one of the attacks the Germans
suffered severe losses. This
attack was undertaken by the
Germans only under threat of
being fired on by their own artillery in the rear.
"In the Black Sea, on the 28th
our fleet bombarded the batteries
and harbor works of Varna, and
at the same time our aviators
dropped bombs on the port.
Enemy submarines attacked our
ships but without success.
On the Italian Front
Rome: More than 5000 prisoners, of whom 117 were officers,
were captured between October
21 and 27, during the Italian
offensive on the Isonzo river
front, according to last night's
official communication, which adds
that the Italians took from the
Austrians one heavy howitzer,
four trench guns, 21 machine
guns and other war material,
including 1,000 rifles, most of
which were quickly brought into
action against the Teutons.
Roumania is Ready
Paris: The Saloniki correspondent of the Petit Journal has
learned from a reliable source
that Roumania has mobilized
450,000 men, of whom 200,000
are concentrated on the Bulgarian frontier and the rest on the
Hungarian frontier, where impregnable defenses have been

that,after six months in hospital,

when the Canadian Scottish
charged the Germans after the
breaking of the French line by
the use of gas. Attacking the
Huns under a withering fire from
rifles, machine guns and shrapnel, Dave and his comrades
charged right up to the entrenchments of the Prussian Guards,
who, he says, "ran like hares
when we got up to them. They
called us the 'Devil Women from
Hell.' " The 16th lost 600 men
in the battle.
Dave has to undergo another
operation, after which he expects
his discharge, when he will return to B.C. He was married on
