GERMANS RETREATING FROM BELGIUM
Brussels, Aug, 12—The Belgian war ofiice announces that the Germans are retreating from Belgium.     Great enthusiasm was aroused when announcement was made.
ATLANTIC COMMERCE SERVICE TO BE RESUMED SOON
London, Aug. 12—It is announced that the British Atlantic commerce may soon be
resumed.   The warship patrols are effective in clearing the route of all dangerous craft.
Roumania Joined In The
Attack On The Servians
Austria Has Brought About A Split
Among the Balkan States—Turkey
Will Make War On Greece It Is
Announced With Hopes of Success
London, Aug. 12.—Advices of a
very disquieting nature have arrived
from the Balkans. These are to the
effect that Roumania has been Induced to withdraw from the other
Balkan States and attack Servla.
TWs action is taken at the instance of Austria, which has succeeded in inducing the Roumanians
to join with her against Servla.
This greatly disturbs matters,   as
it is expected now that Turkey will
proceed against Greece shortly, and
as the latter country is now without available allies it will undoubtedly be defeated by Turkey.

Brussels, Aug. 12.—-A counter-attack by the combined French
and Belgian forces was made on the German troops north and
east of the River Meuse on Tuesday afternoon. The attack was
suecessful. The enemy was driven back several miles towards the
German frontier.

At   iurB,   Lawrence L,  Gillespie's lawn  fete, given on   the   Bpacloua
Gillespie Estate at Newport, one of the   principal   features    was    the
Greek dancing by soclely girls who had been trained In the intricate
movements of the classical dances by Mllo. Inga Scutum, a social favorite at the Newport colony. In addition to appearing in the group of
dances Mllo. Senium danced a solo, polka classtque, which took the assemblage by storm. Newport's leading families, as well as members of
file Spanish, Russian and German embassies summering at the resort
Md army and navy officers of the naval station, witnessed the dance
Included In the audience were Mrs, Stuyvesant Fish, Mrs. Elsie French
^fcderbilt, Mrs. Lorillard Spencer, .Ir., Mrs. Eugene Renaud, Mrs. Herb-
#t Harrlman,  Mrs.  August  Belmont and others of the social elect.
Liege Forts Still Hold Out
London, Aug. 12.—The English officers at Namur report that
all the twelve forts at Liege are still in the hands of the Belgian and the French forces. While the Germans have the town Itself, they are unable to set foot outside the same without drawing
the fire of the gunners of the forts.

It seems very likely that the
Japanese steamers plying across the
Pacific and that the Japanese shipping companies generally will benefit largely by the great increase In
passenger traffic because of the practical   assurance   that    the    Japanese
flag will fly over vessels immune
from capture whatever eventuality
may occur. The Nippon Yusen
Kaisha line will benefit principally
as it is in a position to handle a
larger number of passengers than
the Osaka line, the 'latter being engaged very largely in freight business so far as its American service
Is concerned.
Should    the    Mediterranean     be
closed to traffic the larger Japanese
liners of the NMppor. company, which

The Journal, owing to interruptions on the telegraph line, is not
in a position t» give its readers the
usual war news this morning. Only
a very brief start was made on the
service last night when the wire
went down, owing, it is believed, to
rain and wind prevailing In the Interior.
The broken service received would
indicate that the French army has
been victorious over the Germans
The French war office has issued an
official   announcement    stating    that
victorious in an engagement with
the Germaas. "It is further officially
stated," the despatch continued,
"that all German soldiers who penetrated France in the department of
the   Meuse .     "—and   here    the
telegraph service last night ceased.
It would seem safe to reach the
conclusion on the despatch that the
German invading force has been
j driven out of France.
, This evidently is the story of the
(demoralization of the army which
is  reported   to  have  essayed    to    in-
Where Britain May Fall Down
While the whole world has marvelled at and admired the
prompt action which has been taken by the British Government
and the authorities of the overseas Dominions in this war crisis
that has arisen, there seems to have been one fatal mistake made
in all the preparations and that has been that the war lords of
Prince Rupert, the disgruntled politicians that sit in the back offices hatching mischief against everything that may be remotely
connected with the Conservative party, have not been called upon
to formulate the policy of defence. Last night a local paper says
S. M. Newton, the mayor of this city, Is trying to have the unemployed of Vancouver and Victoria sent to Prince Rupert, referring
to the report that troops are io be sent from the southern cities
to this port. The Journal holds no brief for Mayor Newton. This
paper does not know what his representations to the authorities
charged with the defence of Canada may have beeu. At the same
time, we believe such a statement to be false, and, taken in connection  with the present state of affairs, disloyal and mischievous.
We do not. know what forces are lo be sent to Prince Ruperl
other than is contained in Hie announcement telegraphed here
that 400 would be sent. We do not know the arm of the service
that Is to be sent, nor the exait duly that is in view. It has been
announced Unit tlic militia forces of the Pacific Coast will be utilized by the Department at Ottawa for duties In defence of the
I'acilic Const. Whatever troops are sent here will doubtless be
with that object in new.
No information as far as we can learn has been received as i<>
what service Is to be performed by these forces. They may belong
to an Infantry corps of the south and lie kept for any emergency
that way arise here or along the line of the Grand Trunk Pactflt
They may, for all we know, ho assigned to the duty of laying
mines under the guidance of naval yard experts. The citizens ot
Prince Rupert, we feel sure, iu saying, will accept the servtcs of
these men sent by the Department even If they do not see the particular necessity for them just at this moment.
Certainly, the local citizen"- will not he prepared to endorse'
ths insinuation of the News that the militia forces of Canada are
the unemployed hoboes. Any action that tbe mayor may have
taken in itself would not result in troops being sent here. The
Department of Militia must hav« acted and must be satisfied that
in what is being done the bu't interests of this city and the whole
coast is being served.
But this does not meet the flaws of the war lords of Prince
Rupert, the men who seem to be ready to play politics in everything. Liks the spoiled children, they ascribe to Conservatives all
the ills that befall them, from attacks of the measles to war and
pestilence-
The general public, on reflection after the first effects of the
lamentations of these Liberal Jeremiahs wlll be inclined to be glad
to accept the judgment of the authorities in matters military
rather than accept the local strategists in a line of campaign which
would be political rather than military.

August   12,   1914.
To the Editor of The Journal:
Dear Sir,—At a meeting of the
Prince Uupert, Retail Merchants' Association held this evening the
grievance committee was authorized
to send to the press a denial of the
statement made in tbe editorial columns of the Empire of today's date
accusing the retailers of raising the
price of food. The statement con
tained a very large amount of false
hood which the Empire had no justification in using. The statement
that the retailers are inclined to
raise prices on all food products has
no foundation in fact. The price of
flour, sugar and some cereals has
advanced for the reason that the
wholesalers have raised the price to
the trade. Despite any statement to
the contrary that may be made by
the Empire, the retailers have been
paying sixty cents per barrel more
for flour this week than they were
selling same for two weeks ago.
With sugar and certain cereals the
same conditions obtain—the advance
in price to the retailer has forced a
raise to the consumer. It might be
as well to obtain some knowledge of
the subject before making an attack-
on any body of business men.
Trusting that the press will give
this communication prominence, and
assuring the public thai the retail
trade as a body is noi responsible
for nn advance in prices thai have

Harvesting in Northern Alberta
lias begun and will be gsneral in
many districts next week, says an
Edmonton exchange. A start has
been made in the Clover Bar district
with the barley harvest. Word has
been receive* at the department of
agriculture that wheat is being cut
at Chauvin on the Grand Trunk,
east of Bdmonton. Cutting has been
going oa in Southern Alberta for
some time. Cutting began about the
third week in July in several southern districts. Owing to the shortness
of the straw and the dry weathei
the crop matured early in the south
but it will be light all through the
south country and in many districts
scarcely a bushel of grain will be
harvested. The northern and central
portions of the province present a
great contrast to the south, for the
crops north of Calgary are reported
to be exceptionally good.
The state of things in ' Southern
Alberta this year will he serious for
many farmers. Cattle are already
being offered for sale, farmers in
some districts being without feed as
a result of the drought.
The reports from the country between .Medicine Hat and Lethbridge
and between Alsask and Lethbridge, taking In the Goose Lake
lline, where there were exceptionally
g»od crops last year, show that the
wheat has never filled out at all this
year and the straw is so short thai
it could scarcely be cut for feed. On
the Calgary-Macleod branch the
crops are better than in most parts
of the south. Some of the standing
field grain competitions in the south
have been cancelled.
In the Edmonton district, including Clover Bar, Namayo and Morin-
ville, the crops are looking splendid
and good harvests will be reaped
Barley cutting will be general In a
few days and the wheat harvest will
follow soon afterwards. Reports from
the provincial demonstration farms
at Sedgewick and Vermilion show
that in those districts the crops are
the  best in  years.
Board brought the Iris across the
Pacific to put Banfield in direct submarine communication with Vancouver.
With the completion of her cable-
laying operations there is a psssi-
bility that the Iris will be laid up at
Esquimau for an indefinite period
or at least until the war cloud has
blown  over.
The Iris is not a fast vessel, and
as she would make a good prize for
any foreign warship that may be
prowling around on the Pacific, the
company may decide to hold her at
Esquimau,
