Latest War News.
The following bulletins were received
by    Operator   Graef   yesterday   from
Queen   Charlotte   Citv,    being   taken
from the latest Prince Rupert papers on
arrival of the Prince John:
London 13th.—A news despatch from
Paris states that a great   battle on the
Belgium   frontier   was   begun   today.
Over   4,000 guns   were in   action   and
their boom was heard  along   the front
of 180 miles.     Although   the   battle is
the greatest the world has   yet   known
the Belgium continental censor is careful
today to render   impossible   any   clear
view of the disposition of the two million
men already engaged or moving rapidly
to the conflict.     The   most   important
known phase of the fighting is still the
engagement   on the right flank of the
first German army where  the Belgians
and allies are  reported  to  have got in
the rear of the Germans, turning their
right flank.
Brussels 13th.—The Belgium cavalry
took the offensive today against the
German cavalry division defeated in
yesterday's battle of Haelen. The
German   lost two thousand there
Nish, 13th.—The  Servian war office
Announces today that the Servian troops
ai*e steadily   pressing   their   way   into
Ai istria and have occupied nine Bosnian
to^ns.   They report  the defeat of   the
Ai-jtstrian soldiers at Vihar stating that
th'je enemy abandoned their  field equip-
tir.ientin their flight toward Esceainitche
• Berlin, 13th.—A   wireless   message
from Nauen to Tuckerton N. J., claims
that the   Germans   took   one   hundred
and   twenty French   Officers ..nd  over
eleven hundred soldiers prisoners in the
fighting near   Mulhausen.      They also
took one thousand French  prisoners at
the fight near Longwy.
Paris 13th.—Several French towns in
the vicinity Mourth Et Mossele, on the
German frontier, were shelled by German artillery. The German invaders
pushed their heavy artillery over the
border and the French guns are being
rushed to resist them. The French
government is today pouring more reinforcements through the defiles of the
Vosges mountains to join the French
force in Alsace. The cannonade began
at ten Wednesday morning the Germans
using heavy calibre guns. Although
the German artillery was located at a
considerable distance away the gunners
showed precise accuracy and shells
dropped in the streets in all parts of
the town.
Paris, 13th.—An official report of the
fighting between the French and Germans near Ponta Moussones, north of
Nancy, was issued today. It says the
battle lasted for two days Tuesday and
Wednesday. The Germans attacked
two French battalions and forced them
to fall back. On being reinforced the
French made a counter attack and the
Germans were routed, leaving many
killed, wounded and prisoners, also taking
artillery and ammunition. The French
followed up and surprised the twenty
first Baden regiment destroying it with
a battery fire.
Brussels, 13th.—The war office admitted today that the Belgian Cavalry
suffered a heavy loss in the fighting at
Tierlemott on Wednesday, but declared
that the allied Franco-Belgian infantry
had checked the advance of the German
forces. It is reported that heavy fighting is coming on today. The Germans
brought their artillery into play wjth
deadly effect on tlie advancing forces
of the allies. The Belgian lancers, the
finest of the army, bore the brunt of
the opening engagement at Tierlemont.
They fought with great valor, charging
the Germans in the face of a heavy fire
from machine guns. The government
has restored communication with Liege
by a round about route and states that
not only were the besieged forts still
holding out but Belgian troops to the
west of the city have resumed the
offensive. After a sharp struggle they
drove the Germans back, recapturing
all the ground lost.
Paris, 13th.—The French minister of
war explains that the engagements on
tne Franco-German frontier are no more
than outpost skirmishes at best. A
denial is made of the report that the
French lost 20,000 men at Altkirch and
it is stated the total effective French
troops did not reach that number.
London, 13.—A Niesch correspondent
says the comibined Servian and Montenegro invasion of Bosnia is from
Plevge, north west of Novibazar, and is
in three columns.
Brussels, 13th.—A Regiment of
dragoons coming from the direction of
Liege attempted a surprise at Ainuffe
but were driven off leaving 153 dead
and 102 prisoners.
London, 13th.—The Admiralty has
sent out cruisers to ply the Atlantic and
proteet trade routes. The French government has sent out warship to search
for the German cruisers known to be in
the Atlantic. The enemy's ships will
be hunted continually, and although
some time may elapse before they are
run down they will be kept too busy to
do much mischief.
London, Aug. 13—Germany concentrating her whole force along the French
border. The success of the French arms
in Alsace and the fact that her army
there has been reinforced by over one
hundred thousand British has led Germany to call in her forces surrounding
Liege and Namur. These it is believed
will be movedjdue south through Luxemburg to join the Kaiser's great army on
the Moselle, a few mile from Metz. The
German Emperor's plan of battle seems
to rely very much on the force of numbers overwhelming the enemy.
Victoria, 13th.—Ottawa is being
pressed to send the Edmonton artillery
to Prince Rupert and begin permanent
defence work there.
London, 13th.--A Berlin despatch says
the German staff admits heavy loss on
the Russian frontiers.
The Rainbow and Shearwater are now
at Esquimalt.
G. T. P. Steamers
Tied Up At Seattle.
Orders were received by Captain
Nicholson, manager of the G. T. P.
steamships, to withdraw the steamers
Prince Rupert and Prince George from
service and to lay them up in Seattle.
•Consequently the regular service between Vancouver, Prince Rupert and
the Queen Charlotte Islands has been
interrupted and the Prince John did
not arrive at Massett this week until
Thursday. Capt. Wearmouth said that
the steamers Prince Albert and Prince
John would maintain their regular
schedule, and as far as he knew the
weekly service to the Islands will not
be interfered with.

Leather Medal For C. M. Wilson.
Charles M. Wilson of Dslkatlah is to
be presented with a leather medal by
the Mayor of Prince Rupert. He is
warranted to be the - reatest "Bear
Yarnist" on the Coast, having a record
of finding Polar bears weighing 500
pounds each on the mountains of Massett
Inlet. During his recent visit to the
oil territory he asserts that he met a
bear every fifteen minutes—the woods
being full of bears quite different from
the little black bears down in the flat
country. It is a pity that Mr. Wilson
did not take a load of his prize vegetables to Denan Bay and capture a few
of the species for the approaching exhibition.
Bert Wearmouth came in from the
Yakoun River for a few days this week.
Capt. Edmund Jenkins of Graham
Centre left on Wednesday for England
to rejoin his old regiment.
J.  Brickman   and   S.   Kingsley, two
well-known residents of Massett, left
for Edmonton on Thursday.
Charlie Ives, who has spent the paet
few months in Prince Rupert, returned
on the Prince John on Thursday.
The launch Westover left on Wednesday forenoon for Prince Rnpert with a
number of passengers.     Among those
who went over were Capt. Jenkins, E.
H. Lea, M. S. McDougall and J. T.
Irvine.
Victoria, B. C, 13th.--Albert Goulet,
the well   known    Delkatlah   merchant
and locator   and   promotor of  Graham
Island Oil lands,   has enlisted   in    the
88th Victoria regiment.
T. L. Williams and F. Graham were
in town from Graham Centre over
Tuesday. Mr. Graham took back a
quantity of lumber and shingle? for a
new house he is erecting on his preemption.
Our Victoria visitors will wear their
kid gloves when visiting the future oil
territorson theislands. "Divil'sClub"
in the bush and "Lady's Fingers" in
the cities require handling with soft
leather over the biceps.
The Polaris returned last Saturday
from the west coast. She was chartered
for several days-by Mr. J. D. Mac-
Ken/ie, of the geological survey, who
made an examination of the coal *nd
oil showings from Langara Island to
Seal Inlet.
We have heard of men mistaking a
man for a deer; but a former resident
is credited with shooting a calf when'
he aimed at a blue jay. An Irishman
may speak twice; but he must shoot
straight or pay twenty-five cents a
pound for his mistake.
Cards announcing the forthcoming
marriage of Kitty, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Carlyle Brand, of Prince Rupert,
to Captain Cecil Wearmouth of the
G. T. P. steamer Prince John, have been
issued. The ceremony will take place
at Prince Rupert on September lst.
Mr. Chas. Harrison is in receipt of a
letter from Mrs. Hogan, who is quite
well and enjoying the genial cliamate
of Victoria. Mrs. Hogan wishes to
thank the many kind friends at Massett
for their generous gift, which enabled
her to secure the pre-emption at Woden.
Graham Island will be to the fore as
well as the other parts of the Province
in sending volunteers to the front.
Some have already left to join their
regiments and others are awaiting instructions. Capt. Alex. MacTavish
leaves on the next steamer for Vancouver to report to Col. Currie.

Massett, B.C., Saturday, Aug. 15, 1914
The meagre telegrams coming over
censored wires gives little idea of the
course of events in European centres.
There is little doubt that grim war is
in progress and the greatest struggle
that nations ever engaged in will be
fought both on the sea and land. Britain
with all her might has thrown down
the gage to the nation aspiring to govern
the seas and was ready—aye ready,
when the moment arrived, with ships
fully manned and just from an inspection
at Spithead. The triple, alliance will
now endeavor to crush the nations
backing Servia in a fight that was
brought on by Austria, after Servia
endeavored to ward off the trouble by
acceding to all the demands of Austria
that it was possible to comply with.
It is an unfortunate trait of human
nature that men are compelled to take
up arms against one another in this
age of progress. The old motto that
might is right will be exemplified over
again among people who claim to be
enlightened and at the cost of thousands
of lives and the expenditure of vast
sums of money. War with its horrors
is an awful thing even to contemplate;
but it seems to be the only arbiter and
must now be faced no matter what the
cost. The great nations have been preparing for such and eventuality for
many years; but the strangeness of the
struggle will be apparent in the old-
time enemies on many a battlefield, now
fighting together against nations that
stood shoulder to shoulder on the field
of Waterloo and many other places.
Russia, France and Britain have had
many a struggle in days of old; but all
is now forgotten and they go forth to
break for all time the power of one of
the most despotic nations that ever
existed. Austria set fire to the torch
that brought on the general conflagration; but Germany stood behind with
a train of explosives that rent the air
in all directions. It is questionable
whether Italy is in a position to aid in
supporting the armies of the other two
nations, while Greece, Bulgaria and the
small kingdoms must throw in their lot
with Russia. It will be a titanic struggle,
upsetting trade and commerce and lasting probably for years. Canada will take
a part in the defence of the Empire. The
Governor-General has cancelled his
tour to the Pacific Coast. It is estimated that Canada can raise 60,000 men
inside of two months and embark them
for any service the Home government
may require. Halifax is considered to
be prepared for any  emergency.     The

St. Lawrence river and the Bay of

Britain, France and Russia. Britain,

The Uuited States and Canada will
feel the loss of thousands of laborers.
Hundreds of thousands of men are
working in the various industrial plants
and building railways who are army
reserve soldiers. It seems passing
strange that nations must be drawn
into costly wars because Austria and
Servia, two small nations with prayers
on the lips of their rulers, consider it to
their interest to avenge s®me insults
and to fight over the animosities that
are of their own making. Seemingly
it would have been more fitting for the
large nations to step in and prevent the
war giving all smaller powers to understand that the peace of the whole
world is of more consequence than the
petty grievances of Emperors and
Kings.

(Continued from last week's issue)
A week after the ship had sailed
away a canoe was in from Skidegate
and brought news that it had crossed
the bar the day before, having been
held by adverse winds. The Indians
opinion of it is recorded thus: "The
ship has been a great disappointment
to the Indians, Capt. Gold especially.
They fully expected that she would
bring in a great many iktas to be
given to them as acultus potlatch. Our
friend Trounce has been the cause of
this. He told old Gold that his father
was going to send a ship for coal, a
four-master, that she would be loaded
with goods to be given away and that
Gold would get the lion's share. Poor,
silly, credulous old Gold has been terribly gulled. I tried to console hime by
telling him that the ship that had come
did not belong to Trounee's father, but
that when Trounee's father's ship with
the four masts did come he would
then have a benefit. He did not say
much, but I fancy he looks upon
Trounces big ship as a myth. I don't
think he looks upon Trounce now as
being a great nabob as he had represented himself to be; in fact, the majority speak of him with contempt.
There were supposed to be provisions
for six months sent up at the time Mr.
Russell went to the islands on the
sloop Thornton, but the calculation
must have been out, for long before
they began to give out. The sugar was
done on December 18, the coffee on
January 13 and the tea fiive days later.
Many weeks after that Mr. Russell had
a cup of tea when he went on a fruitless hunt for provisions, and he
writes: "By way of confession I own
to a tenderness amounting almost to
the illicit for this seductive extract. I
suspect it was popular in the Garden
of Epen before the fall." After the coffee was exhausted we read: "Thecook
is burning barley and nicknaming it
coffee.    It is a very fair substitute."
The men, upon whom the conditions
had cunsiderable effect in spite of the
roughness of their nature, began to
grumble loudly, and at last Mr. Russell
undertook a canoe trip to Cumshewa
in search of provisions. At the store
run by Capt. Hugh McKay there he
was informed by the trader in charge,
Mr. Hargreaves, that he could not
spare anything, as he had only a
week's supply for himself, so a journey
of two days each way, not unaccompanied with much danger, was bootless.
All Mr. Rnssell got out of it was a very
bad cold and chill which struck to him
until he left the island for good, and
after.
"Some Indians have arrived from
Gold Harbor," writes Mr. Russell one
day, "with a supply of halibut. This
is a most  delicious fish   and  when we
can get it we have it for breakfast,
dinner and supper. Salt beef is at a
discount when halibut comes iuto the
market. The crabs here are very fine,
and a different kind from those got
in the water near Victoria. Oysters
there are none. Those delicious, pearly
little creatures that we eat alive are
dead to us here. Clams are in abundance but they savor too much of the
Siwash to suit my taste."
Lonely as was Mr. Russell's condition
at the beginning of his stay at the
mine at Hastings, it was ten times
worse as time wore on and the winter rains began, with the discomfort
and depression they brought. It is evident from the diary that the effect on
Mr. Russell was much worse than
even he was aware of at the time,
and that the very effort he made to
avoid sinking into the shiftless ways
of so many white men in similar situation increased the nervous strain. Had
he put in much longer it is apparent
that his mind' might have become
affected, so seriously were worry and
isolation weighing upon it.
The term of his engagement was for
six months from the time he left Victoria on September 21,1870. Month by
month he notes in his diary the length
of time he had been there, and in the
latter part of his stay he counts the
months until he could be at home
again. On March 20,-1871, he records
that the six months were up that
night, but a month later he was still
there and the diary stops as he was
about to go in search of "grub" for
the men for the second time. It was
late that spring before he got back to
the city, and considerable more hardship was endured by him before that
much-desired end came to h;s experiences.
Homesickness grew upon him more
and more as the time passed. Frequently through his diary there are
indications of his constant thoughts
of his wife and children here, and
occasional pathetic references to his
dead boy. As it came nearer the end
of his exile he got to dreaming nightmares about his family, who appeared
to be in every sort of trouble, and he
had startlingly real visions of his boy
in the moments of half-wakefulness
twixt consciousness and sleep. It began to affect his nerves, too, that in
his later dreams he no longer saw the
little fellow on his mother's knee, as
had been the case in earlier dreams.
There is every indication unconsciously given of the result of dreariness, loneliness and business worry on
a cultured gentleman, cut off by what
might have been the breadth of the
world from anyone to whom he could
look for sympathy.
To be concluded next week.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists ?
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing .me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prince
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.
