KAISER'S INVADING LEGIONS BACK FROM FRENCH CAPITAL
London, Sept. 12:���Official despatches from Paris say the German center, which is being contested by the French troops, is now
in retreat, as well as the right, which has been forced back by the
British. The Germans have retired forty-six miles east. Their
general retreat continues.
Yesterday, according to a Paris report, three German armies,
under Crown Prince Frederick, the Duke of Wurtemburg, and
General Von Kluk, were hurled against the Allies' center in an attempt to break the line, They w_re repulsed and the Allies resumed the offensive.
The British forces on Thursday took 1500 prisoners and many
maxim guns.    The French also captured many of the enemy.
Roumania, Bulgaria and Greece have agreed to interfere if
Turkey attempts to aid Germany or Austria. It is believed Austria
will soon sue for peace. Russia's advance has shaken the Austrian
empire and has astonished Germany.
The Germans have evacuated the region of the Scheldt, between
Antwerp and Ghent. The Belgians are pursuing an army corps,
which is marching towards France.
Stories of frightful atrocities by the invaders in Belgium and
France are confirmed.

The German fleet is reported to be active in the Baltic.
The British have taken Langenburg, the German East African

the coast of Scotland and sank. The captain and fifty of the crew
were rescued. One hundred bodies were recovered. Another
hundred are missing.
The section of the Pacific cable from Bamfield to Fanning Island is out of commission. A break may have caused the trouble,
hut it is thought the German cruiser Nurnberg may have cut the

Fanning Island. British cruisers were in pursuit. It is believed
warships were detailed to protect Fanning Island station.
Japan has voted a war loan of $26,000,000.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
Vancouver, Sept. 7:���It is officially announced that the total
British casualties to date are fifteen thousand.
The Germans captured three forts at Mauberge, near the
Franco-Belgian boundary. The rest, defended by the French and
British, are still holding out,
A German force left Brussels yesterday, with the reported intention of attempting to cut Antwerp's communication with the
coast, burning villages on the way.
It is reported that Sir John French got round the left German
army and General Joffre has turned the German lines. There has
been no main trial of strength during the past five days The British are refitting and consolidating their units.
The British army is now south of Marne, in line with-the
French on right and left, a new front being on line east of Paris.
Twenty thousand men are daily enlisting in Britain.
The Allies are agreed that one will not consider nor conclude
peace with Germany without the consent and approval of the
others.
The British foreign office, in reviewing the past month, finds
the situation satisfactory. The fighting strength of France is unimpaired. Russian armies are about to enter central Germany,
while the Allies have had many colonial successes. Unchallenged
command of the seas is shown particularly by 300,000 troops being
able to cross the seas without the loss of a single man. This includes expeditions against German possessions in Africa and Algerian troops to France.
A Russian army of 800,000 is marching from Lemberg towards
Berlin, while three other Russian armies are entering Germany
north of this.
The Wilson liner Uno, sailing from Hull, struck a mine and
sank. Two hundred survivors have been landed at Grimsby.

Germans and many guns.
Paris expects a Zeppelin attack.
The British Columbia government has made a gift of 1,200,-
000 cans of salmon, which will be sent to Britain as soon as possible. Sir Richard McBride, in a lengthy optimistic statement,
announced the gift.	
London, Sept. 8:���At midnight it was stated that an announcement of the results of the engagements since Saturday was hourly
expected. The main armies of the Allies and the German forces are
facing each other along a line directly east of Paris, extending
from Nanteuil to the fortified city of Verdun. Nanteuil is twenty-
five miles east of Paris. A great, and probably decisive, battle is
expected to open today. The Allies have here won several important engagements, and the entire German force is said to be retreating, pursued by the British and French.
In the battle at Crecy-au-Oise the Allies defeated the Germans.
The Imperial Guards, under command of the Crown Prince, are reported to have been annihilated by the British troops. An earlier
despatch said the Kaiser had joined the army of the Crown Prince.
East Indian troops had their first engagement with the Germans at Termonde, Belgium, on Friday, defeating the enemy with
heavy loss.
In the battle at San Quentin the Scots Greys and Black Watch
made a notable charge.    The Greys, each with a man of the Black
London, Sept. 9:���The Allies continue to drive the Germans
back from the vicinity of Paris, and the invading forces are retreating eastward towards Verdun. The request of the Germans
for an armistice has been refused. A titanic struggle is evidently
now in progress, with the advantage to the British and French
forces.
Accounts given by wounded soldiers who have been brought
into Paris, show that the fighting of the last three days in the
Compiegne country and on the Marne river has resulted even more
favorably for the Allies than at first supposed here. The Germans
have sustained terrible losses in killed and wounded, while thirty
thousand prisoners are reported to have been taken. The Paris
war office states that the general situation is satisfactory.
The first army of Russians, comprising 80,000 which reached
Belgium via Scotland, is said to have been increased to nearly a
quarter of a million. The British government refuse to confirm or
deny the report. The Russian armies are said to have taken over
,000 Austrian prisoners. They have fought a tremendous three-
day battle in Galicia, in the effort to annihilate the Austrian army.
The latter has evacuated the Lemberg district, and is now in full
retreat.
A London paper states that the Austrian emperor died twelve
days ago, the report being suppressed because of internal troubles
It is reported from Berlin that the German chancellor has resigned after a quarrel with Emperor Wilhelm, who considered German'diplomacy at fault in allowing the Allies to unite.
The Belgian government commission has abundant evidence
proving atrocities. It is shown that Belgian men, women and
children were forced to march before the German troops, with
white flags, to induce the French to come within range. Dinant
is the latest Belgian city to be pillaged and burned. Hundreds of
the inhabitants were shot. Proof of the charges will be furnished
to the United States.
A British submarine entered Bremerhaven, through a passage
left between the mines for German warships. The submarine fired
two torpedos, causing a panic in the harbor, and returned safely to
the fleet.
The cruiser Pathfinder's casualty list numbers 259.
Rudyard Kipling, addressing a great meeting in London, said:
"It is not conceivable that we should fail. If we fail, the lights of
freedom go out over the whole world."
Ottawa, Sept. 8:���The Duke of Connaught today inspected the
camp at Valcartier. He was much pleased with the Canadian force,
complimenting the men and congratulating the government on the
evident efficiency of the regiments. The list of those to go in the
first contingent will be announced this week.
The cruiser Australia is in pursuit of the Nurnberg, off Hawaii

No. 2
The nature of the movement known as "The Canadian Patriotic Fund" has not been generally understood. His Royal Highness
the Governor-General issued an appeal, which is republished for
general imformation, because we think it very important that the
nature of the movement should be fully appreciated. The appeal
is as follows:
"A Message to the People o'f Canada: In response to urgent
appeals from many parts of the Dominion, I inaugurated the Cana
dian Patriotic Fund, the object of which is to provide for the needs
of the wives, families and dependent relatives oi those who go to
the front to tight the battles of Great Britain and her allies. Unless generous minded citizens come to their aid there will be, during the winter, much hardship in many families, owing to the absence of the breadwinner.
"I have the greatest confidence that those who are in a position to give need but the opportunity of doing so, and that the response will be widespread and generous.
"During the past few days the Canadian Patriotic Fund has
been duly organized. A strong executive, representing the whole
Dominion, has been appointed and a central bureau established at
Ottawa. I sincerely hope that in every city and town throughout
the Dominion branches may be formed, full particulars of which
can be had by addressing the honorary secretary, Mr. H. B. Ames,
M. P., Ottawa. By co-ordinating and harmonizing benevolent efforts in this way, the danger of overlapping on the one hand, or
neglecting deserving communities on the other hand, may be met
and overcome. I am convinced that all Canadian hearts will go
out to their brave fellow citizens who have gone to the front. A
prompt and hearty response to this appeal will put all anxiety at
rest about those near and dear to them, and will also afford to those
who cannot go an opportunity of doing their duty to Canada and
the Empire.

This
A Will-'o-the-Wisp
Tempered copper is a will-'o-
the-wisp that is referred to frequently. Many inventors, usually poorly equipped with technical
skill, have wasted much time in
efforts to rediscover the "lost
art" of tempering copper, and on
an average of once yearly the
American press contains long articles giving hazy details of the
rediscovery of the process of
tempering copper to the hardness
of steel, such wonderful discoveries usually being made by
blacksmiths in Maine, cobblers
in Pennsylvania, farm hands in
Illinos or cow-punchers in Texas.
A typical example of one of these
processes is furnished by a lady
in the state of Washington, who
puts a razor edge on copper tools
by adding an ounce of bluestone
to a hundred pounds of copper,
while molten, and, if an especially fine edge is desired, an ounce
of bichromate of potash is added
to the charge. The lady inventor
is evidently a homeopathic metallurgist. It is doubtful if the
mound-builders of America possessed any special art of tempering copper, as it has not been
proven that the copper tools of
the ancients were harder than
those made from modern copper.
If tempered copper were greatly
to be desired, it is probable that
it might be furnished with the
aid of tellurium, a small quantity
of which renders copper exceedingly hard; but as tempered copper merely would replace steel,
in most instances, and as steel is
veiy much the cheaper of the
two metals, a perfecct process
for tempering copper seems unnecessary.���The Copper Handbook. _

employed  have   ranches in  the
neighborhood, and  it is pleasing
to note that they are all slocking
up with a plentiful supply of provisions.     Some of them will settle down on their ranches, a few
will perform  the annual assessment work  on mineral claims in
which they are  interested, while
others  will go at once into the

Smoot Bill Passed
Passage by the United States
senate of the Smoot bill providing for the purchase by the government of 15,000,000 ounces of
silver within six months was received with a great deal of satisfaction by the mining men of
Reno. The proposal will call for
the expenditure of between six
and eight million dollars, depending on the price which market
conditions may require to be paid.
Advices from New York that
large purchases of bar silver
were being made there at 56 cents
per ounce also lent an encouraging
phase to the situation, as it is
believed that the purchases were
largely for delivery in London,
indicating a broadening of the
market which has been curtailed
during the past three weeks on
account of the European war,
which cut off shipments to Europe.
Frank Manson, manager of the
Western Ore Purchasing Company, again expressed the belief
yesterday that the price of silver
may soon reach 60 cents an
ounce, due to the support the
government is preparing to give
and also to the outlook for demand and shipments abroad.
Mr. Manson also predicted a
strong advance in the price of
spelter or zinc, which will be felt
beneficially in certain portions of
Nevada, particularly the Good-
springs district, near Las Vegas,
in the southern part of the state.
Colorado, Missouri and Kansas,
which are large producers of
zinc, will be especially benefited,
the advance in price being due
to the closing of the big zinc
mines of Europe.���Exchange.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
(Continued from Page One)
Conditions  in  Austria, following recent reverses, are serious,
bordering on panic.   Many Austrian troops are mutinous.
Roumania is said to be ready to help Russia with 200,000 men.
Berlin banks are raising a $250,000,000 loan for the German
government. Germany claims the capture of Mauberge, a French
fortress, with 40,000 prisoners, including four French generals.
The government of India is contributing $15,000,000 towards
the cost of its contingent. It is also considering agreements with
the British dominions to limit Indian immigration, on the same
lines as the British Columbia-Japanese agreement.
A British gunboat has captured a trawler with 200 mines on
board.
The Germans are evacuating southern Alsace.
French cruisers have captured two more German merchantmen. 	
London, Sept. 11:���An official statement issued at Paris at
midnight says the Allies yesterday pressed the German armies
eastward another twelve miles, making the total distance of ti e
enemy's retreat thirty-seven miles in four days. Engagements of
varying importance occurred along the fighting line of more than
sixty miles. There is nothinir definite as to a decisive battle. The
British captured a number of prisoners and guns.
The war office has made public Sir John French's vivid and
optimistic account of the Allies' strategic retreat between the 22nd
and 26th of August. He states that the British troops bore the
brunt of a difficult task, which was successfully accomplished. The
statement of General French has electrified England.
The general situation is developing daily in favor of the Allies,
but with some losses   A crisis in the war is hourly expected.
The Belgian army, making Antwerp its base, has started a
triumphant offensive movement, driving the Germans right back
towards the city of Louvain, burned by the invaders.
The Russian forces are now lined up from Koenigsberg to
Cracow, two hundred miles directly south, where the Austrians
are making their last desperate stand. The Russian center is preparing for the advance towards Berlin. Along the Russian line in
Germany the Kaiser's forces are in retreat.
There are persistent rumors that the Austrians are ready to
admit defeat and that internal troubles may disorganize their army
and force them to sue for peace.
The British army is to be increased by another half million
men, which will bring the total of all ranks in Great Britain's land
forces up to nearly a million and a quarter.
A British naval squadron swept through the North Sea and
the Bight of Heligoland yesterday, but saw no German ships.
An additional list of British casualties includes the names of
ten officers killed, sixty-three wounded and sixty missing. Sixty
of other ranks were killed, five hundred wounded and twenty-
eight hundred are missing.
Saskatchewan is sending fifteen hundred horses for the use of
the British forces.

Strength of Nations
Statistics of the size, wealth,
population, debt and strength of
the European powers will prove
interesting forastudy ofthe news
as it comes from day to day. One
of the results of the comparison
will tend to show that the popular impression of the wealth and
the strength of France is somewhat misleading. In comparisons
as to England the population and
size is of the British empire, including the colonies, whereas the
revenues and debt are for the
United Kingdom. For Germany
the revenue and debt are taken
for the empire not counting the
states. The United States is included for comparison.
As to wealth here is the order
according to late statistics:
United States, 130 billions:
England. 80 billions; Germany,
60. billions; France 95 billions;
Russia, 40 billions; Austria-Hungary, 25 billions: Italy, 20 billions.
As to revenues the order follows, and it may be said the annual expenditure practically matches the annual revenue: United
States 992 millions; England, 918
millions; Germany, 879 millions;
France, 914 millions; Russia, 1_
billions; Austria-Hungary, 1 billion; Italy, 512 millions.
As to debt the figures follow:
United States, 1 billion; England
3. billion; Germany, 1 billion;
France, 61 billion; Russia, 4J
billion; Austria-Hungary, 1 billion; Italy, 21/ billion.
As to size the figures follow,
counting England as the British
empire: United States, 3ji million
square miles; British empire, 13
million square miles; Germany,
209,000 square miles; France,
207,000 square miles; Russia, 8��
