London, Aug. 18th.—The British official press bureau, in its communication
today, says: "The German offensive is
for the moment arrested in Upper Alsace, and there are indications that the
French have made progress on that
side." The communication says: "The
French troops are advancing into the
high Alsation valleys of the Vosges
Mountains. Since their occupation of
the Saales region, In German territory
on the frontier of Alsace which was
announced yesterday, the French troops
have entered the town of Saale itself,
driving out the German troops. Today
they collected the kits abandoned by
the German fugitives. Saales is 25
miles north of Colman, which had been
the point farthest north reached
previously. "In the Woevre district,
in the department of the Meuse, the
French troops today fired at and brought
down a hostile aeroplane, which was
flying at a height; of over 1000 yards.
The two German officers occupying the
flying machine were taken prisoners.
"In the same district a battalion of
French light infantry put to flight a
battalion of German landwehr, taking
forty prisoners. "The Belgian cavalry
continues to be successful in the vicinity
ofHasselt."
Brussels, Aug. 18th,—According to
the latest advices in the Belgian capital,
barely 500 German soldiers escaped unhurt of the 4000 or 5000 engaged in the
battle of Haelen. Many of the field
guns of the German artillery were lost
at the same place. The soldiers who
remained of the German attacking
column retired to Tongres. A special
train has been sent out to collect the
wounded on the battlefield. Among
them are reported to be two German
princes.
Brussels,. Aug. 18th.—Fighting grimly
night and day, the defenders of the
forts at Liege continue to withstand the
bombardment that has now been in
progress for three Hays without cessation. Though most of the heavy
siege artillery used by the German
army was brought to bear on the forts,
they remain unshattered and replying
effectively. The war office stated today
that, because of the stubborn defence
put up by the forts and garrison, the
Germans transported many of their
heaviest pieces to the left bank of the
Meuse, concentrating their attack on
Fort Pontasse. Late Friday afternoon
the besiegers attempted to take Pontasse by storm, but were repulsed with
heavy losses.
London, Aug. 18th.—The war office
announces: "The Belgian army has
won victories in the district around
Hasselt against the German cavalry,
which was trying to take off ens vie again
after its defeat at Diest. German infantry is moving toward Vise and Tongres, but no fresh engagement have
resulted from this movement. The
British fleet is assured of absolute safety
for the transport of British troops to
the continent."
London, Aug. 18th.—The official press
bureau of the British Admiralty and
war department this evening issued the
following: "There is no reason to
doubt that the Turkish Government is
about to replace   the   German  officers
and crews of the Goeben   and   Breslau
by Turkish officers and crews."
New York, Aug. 18.— The Hamburg-
American line issued a statement this
afternoon saying that it had under consideration offers to purchase some of its
steamships in American waters valued
at $20,000,000. The fleet embraces the
Vaterland, the greatest ship in the world.
If sold, the vessels would fly the American flag.
Paris, Aug. 18th.— An official announcement of the trench War Office says that the conduct and courage of the soldiers and inhabitants of
Lieg_ have been exemplary as they
realize that France has replied to the
appeal of Beigmm for aid. German
deserters, according to the official note,
complain of the terrible hunger they
have suffered. They are said to have
declared that their rations consisted of
one sausage and two spoonfuls of peas.
London, Aug. 18th.—Seeing how completely the German fleet seems sealed
up in its home waters and its timidity
at venturing into the open sea, amusement has been caused in London by the
official intimation from the foreign office at Berlin to commercial men at
Hamburg that Germany must be considered at war with all British colonies
and also with the Congo.
Prince Albert
Struck Rock
All on Board Saved But  One  Baby.
Prince John Arrived  at Rupert with
Passengers and Mail.
One hundred and seventy soldiers
arrived on the Prince Albert at Prince
Rupert last Monday night. They
were in charge  of Lt. Col. McSpadden.
Some 1,200 citizens were on the wharf
to welcome the troops. They disembarked quickly and spent an hour in
light drill on the wharf
There is another detachment of 175
men expected on the next boat, probably
the Princess Sophia today.
Those who arrived on Monday evening
are all quartered at the old Premeir
Hotel, and with good organization in
the commissary department the mess
was ready for the first meal next morning. The staff are also quartered in the
hotel which is still equipped with water
toilets and baths.
There has been nothing given out
yet as to what the troops will do in the
way of protecting the city and the railroads, but the office) s have maps of the
city and district and are now forming
their plans.
Germans who attempt to leave Canada and cannot give a good account of
themselves or who may be suspected
of an intention to leave for the purpose
of joining the German army or navy,
are to be arrested and detained in prison
camps during the war. Orders were
received by Customs Officer Harrison to
see that all Germans in this district reported. The Dominion Government
suggests that all German reservists now
in the Dominion who wish to avoid arrest should go to the nearest magistrate
or other public officer and file a statement that they wish to be considered as
peaceful and law-abiding residents of
Canada.
In view of the above, it is reported
that German residents at Lawn Hill are
not conducting themselves as they
should, and we wish to say to them that
steps will be taken to enforce the law
if they don't be more conciliatory in
their actions.
Digby Island, Aug. 18th, 9:30 p.m.—
G. T. P. steamer Prince Albert struck
on Butterworth Rock near Triple island.
Breaking up fast and sinking. Got in
communication with Rupert. Steamers
Prince John ana Lillooet left Rupert
immediately to the tescue. Haa 26
passengers on board. Was making 12
knots per hour and heavy sea running.
Launching two lifeboats. Wireless
operator says sinking. Wireless
failed at this time.
12 Midnight.—Steamer John in communication with Rupert; well on her
way out.
Aug. 19th, 9;30 a. m.-Everybody
saved with the exception of one baby.
Unable to find out anything else as

condition of Albert, etc.
The John picks up passengers.
19th, 1 p.m.—John «rnveu at Rupert
with passengers and mail.
The above brief despatches were received by Operator Graef and up until
the time of going to press nothing

The Prince Albert arrived at Massett
from Port Clements, at the head of the
inlet, about 2 o'clock Tuesday, and after
discharging general freight and lumber
left about 5 p.m. Capt. D. MeKenzie
of the Prince Rupert was in command
of the Prince Albert on this trip, having
relieved Capt. Moorehouse, who was
meeting his wife on her return from a
year', visit to the Old Country.
The news of the accident reached
Massett about midnight and naturally
caused much excitement, as she left
here with 26 passengers, most of them
being local people. Butterworth Rock
is about four- hours' stemming from
Prince Rupert and is very exposed and
dangerous, there being no light or buoy
on it. Until the word came that all
were saved with the exception of one,
baby, it was a  most anxious time.
The Prince Albert since entering the
British Columbia coast service has had
several mishaps. A little over a year
ago she went on the rocks at Port
Simpson, and although the damage was
slight the passengers had a most exciting experience.
The following were the passengers
on the Prince Albert at the time of the
accident:
Mrs. M. Tugwell  and  son,   Massett.
Miss Georgia Dill and Miss Mary
Dill, Woden River.

It may be too early to prognosticate
the resultof the clash between the great
European nations; but the map of the
world will be changed considerably, it
matters not which side  is  successful.
The downfall of Germany and Austria
would mean the loss of all outside possessions, to  the  victors, along with a
great      war      indemnity,    and      the
cutting     up   of   Austria.       We,   on
the British side, look for victory, and
there seems no tangible reason why the
combined powers will not be successful.
The  war  strength of   Great  Britain,
Fiance, Russia and Servia shows that
we can put one million more men on the
battlefields than Germany, Austria and
Italy.   In warships we have almost two
to one, and none  of  the nations have
been found unprepared.     At the same
time it must not be admitted that the
Germans  are  not  going into the war
blindly.    They have been preparing for
this struggle for many years and must
have   considered  the  time  ripe  when
they discarded all overtures for peace.
The invasion of French territory proved
that the old enemy of 1871 is the first
Germany decided to attempt to crush.
Britain must endeavor to annihilate the
German  fleet  and  protect the British
Isles.    At the time of writing the British fleet has   the German fleet bottled
up in their own waters, and so far they
have shown no inclination to come out
and fight.   It will be impossible for Germany to  send  an  army to Russia and
England, because she will need all her
available troops to checkmate the operations  of   the  Ailies  on  the   Franco-
German   frontier.     Austria   will   have
all   the   work   necessary   to   face   the
Servians and their Allies.     So far the
German advance through Belguim has
failed and the combined forces of Bel-
gum,  France and Britain   are  beating
them back.

The interruption  of commerce   will
mean a great loss   to  nations not engaged in the war.     Foodstuffs will increase in value and there  will  be  the
loss  of  thousands  of  the  young  and
strong.    It is to be hoped, now that the
war dogs have been let loose, that the
struggle   will  be short, sharp and decisive      It  is  unfortunate in this enlightened age, that nations cannot settle
their   difficulties   without  recourse  to

Victoria, August 18.—Steaming
across the Pacific at full speed to intercept the German cruisers Leipzig
and Nurnberg, the British cruiser Newcastle reached Victoria today from the
British China station.
The Newcastle ib a fast boat, capable
of steaming over twenty-six knots, and
it therefore three knots better than the
Leipzig. In addition she is more heavily
armed, having two six-inch guns. The
Leipzig has none. The Newcastle has
also ten four-inch guns and four three
pounders. She was built in 1910 and
has a displacement tonnage of 4,800.
She will stay on this coast to help the
Rainbow in protecting British shipping
and coast ports.
Brussels, August 18th.—The boom
and roar and thundering echoes of big
guns are heard about the city today.
A great battle is being fought. Military
experts say it is to be the greatest
battle in history and the city is a fever
of excitement. It is just ninety-nine
years ago that the great battle of
Waterloo was fought and the roar of
cannon was heard here in the same way.
Where the opposing armies are located
and what their numbers are is known
only to the military authorities, but all
agree that it is the beginning of a great
battle that may roar for many days
and nights.
Paris, Aug. 18.—Italy has defied
Austria and refuses her permission to
transport four corps (160,000 men) of
Austro-Hungarian troops through Italian territory to the French frontier,
according to a despatch from Geneva,
Switzerland, today.
London, Aug. 18.—A despatch from
Brussels to the Exchange Telegraph
Company says the death of General Von
Emmich, the German commander at
Liege, is confirmed. He is to be succeeded by General Von Der Martwitz.
General Von Emmich was 66 years of
age. He was a lieutenant in the
Franco-Prussian war.
London, Aug. 18.—A despatch from
Namur, Belgium, to the Times says a
German aeroplane flew over that city
kst evening and dropped several bombs.
Five men were wounded, one of them
being horrible mangled by the explosion
of missiles.

(Continued from last week's issue)
Not infrequently in the diary there
is a note about the depths to v. hich
some white man had sunken under
such circumstances. Of one case he
writes: "He eats some of the Indian
dish as if it was honey, whereas it
sickens me with the sight and smell.
He appears very much demoralized,
dirty, ragged and slovenly, and very
thin. He has not got even the time of
day; I question very much if he knew
the day of the week. It is truly wonderful how soon a man  falls.     He has
nly been six months stationed here
and he has already fallen into the
habits of the Indians. He may wash
his face occasionally, but I doubt if
he ever combs his hair. God grant
that I may never fall as low as that."
Mr. Russell from time to time mentions the scenery, such as it was, but
on one occasion writes that even if he
were possessed of a poetic taste, worry
and the constant succession of rainy
days would prevent his mind being
turned into the channel of the beautiful. All the same he betrays a keen
love of nature and appreciation of the
beautiful in animate and inanimate
nature.
" This is a weary, dreary hole," he
writes one evening, "no change but
one continual round of coal and
Siwashes, Siwashes and coal, and a
growling, grumbling, ill-tempered set
of men to deal with. I very often
dream of being out of it and I sincerely wish I was."
The Indians in the nei. hborhoo'd
were always treated fairly and kindly
by Mr. Russell, and he endeavored to
stand between them and white men
who sought to injure them, but he
had no liking for them as neighbors
and wondered what the company had
been thinking about to allow them to
locate near the mine. Being inveterate thieves they had stolen most of
the blacksmith and carpenter tools,
had taken a large quantity of blasting powder and even stole the firewood at night.
On one occasion Mr. Russell writes:
"I have frequently questioned these
Indians to see if they have any idea
of a Supreme Being. They all say
that they believe in a higher power
than  mortal  man, but   they are   very
far from the true knowledge. They
have a terrible dread of smallpox.
When that epidemic comes amongst
them they believe that God has sent
it as a judgment upon them for their
past sins, but they do not look upon
evil-doing as a sin; the sin to them is
in being found out.
Sundays Mr. Russell found the most
tedious day of the week, as there was
nothing to do. He could not spend it
better than he did, yet hardly a Sunday went by but he records a sort of
apology for having to put in the time
in what he considered a very poor
fashion.     Besides   this   the   enforced
leisure induced thoughts of home and
family to a greater extent than on
other days.
"I do not know of anything more
calculated to demoralize a man than
the non-observance of the Sabbath
day," he writes. "I know that some
will agrue that even in a place of this
sort the day can be kept as it should
be, but my experience tells me differently. Habit is everything with a
man, and when he cannot keep up that
habit of going to the house of God
on the Sabbath day, something else
will natnrally occupy his mind, and
although I have not allowed myself to
do on this day just what I would do
on week-days yet I feel that the Sabbaths here are not like Sabbaths. The
men, it is true, are not at work, and
consequently they do not require my
presence amongst them, but then I
can hear them going about cursing
and swearing, and at meal there is the
some old grumbling, so thar I may say
I have no change. Should the day be
fine, which is very seldom, I can go
rambling in the woods and get out of
it, but on such days as these my
situation is really a miserable one.
On another Sunday he writes: "I
have now ceased to look upon these
days as being truly Sabbaths; there
is not the slightest change to mark
them. I can easily understand a man
in time, when shut out from all Sabbath association, becoming utterly re-
grrdless of the Sabbath, but thank
God I have not come to that pass, and
I trust I never shall, but fretting as
I am just now I cannot even compose
myself to read. As soon as I begin I
find myself thinking about something
else, and forgetting altogether what
I am reading about."
The summing up of Mr. Russell on
the adventure of the company is that
the expenditure on the mine and the
work constructed for the extraction
of coal was money thrown away; that
the company had been misled, taken
advantage of, swindled and robbed in
every way, and that it was useless to
proceed with further development. In
this the directors and shareholders
agreed with him when he returned
here and supplemented his written reports with more detailed statements
regarding the mine. Since then there
has been practically nothing done to
develop the coal deposits of the Queen
Charlottes. The last report of the
mines department states that there is
a colliery partly equipped on the
sothern end of Graham Island, on
Skidegate Inlet, but that the output
is unimportant. No work was done
on it during 1913, the coal not proving
a satisfactory fuel. This mine is in
the same vicinity as the one which
Mr. Russell tried to make pay forty-
four years ago. There has been some
prospecting going on for the past
couple of years on the island, but no
workable measures are being reported.

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.
