New Zealand's Help  Expeditionary Force Is Promised  Wellington, New Zealand, Aug.  1.���������Hon. William F. Massey,  i Prime Minister of New Zealand,  Both Political and  Religious  London Times Analyzes the Austro-  Russian Controversy  The London Times says:  "Russian interests in Servia  are at once political and religious.  Most of the Serb Orthodox  churches in old Servia, Bosnia  and Herzegovina were built with  Russian money.  "The political interest of Russia in Servian independence lies  mainly in the fact that Servia  stands athwart the Austro-Hun-  garian line of advance toward  Salonika, and is a bulwark of independence for the Balkan peninsula.  ' 'The aim of the house of Haps-  burg constantly has been to obtain political hegemony in the  Balkans by extending its political influence, and by subsidizing  tiie Catholic propaganda at the  expense of the Orthodox churches.  "The question of Servia, however, is not the only point at  issue between Russia and the  dual monarchy. The Ruthene,  or Little Russian question is  equallyiformidable. Twenty-five  million Ruthenians, or Little  Russians, live in the southwest  provinces of Russia, and 4,500,-  000 Little Russians on the line  of Galicia and Northeastern  Hungary.  "A majority of these Austro-  Hungarian Little Russians are  members of the Greek United  Church, a church orthodox in its  rites, but Catholic ,in its allegiance to the government.  "Vienna has, during recent  years, encouraged the Greek  United propaganda among the  Little Russians in Hungary and  Austria.  "Thecontest is one of political  day last. Among the passengers j  for this port were Mr. C. H.  Dennis, representing C. Tisdall  & Co. of Vancouver, and T. C.  Colwell, who returns after a two  weeks visit to his relatives in  Ontario.  Road-superintendent R. Jennings and Chief Gammon of the  provincial police left by the  Camosun on Sunday after spending the week on inspection of  their respective departments.  L. Calnan, who has been resident in the town for the last  year, left for his home in Essex,  England, on Sunday last. Mr.  Calnan always took a prominent  part in public matters at this  place and will be missed by his  friends, whom the Courier joins  in wishing him a safe journey  and every good wish for the  future.        Having regard to the seriousness of the situation in Europe  at the present time, the local  Liberal party decided to postpone the political meetings which  were advertised to take place  during the past week. Mr. T.  D.Pattullo of Prince Rupert, has  kindly promised to visit us at  some more appropriate time in  the future.  A. C. Christensen and E.

Constable Broughton left town  early in the week for Kimsquit  to investigate an affair in which  it is alleged a white man fired a  shot at a Jap fisherman, the bullet passing through the sou-wester worn by the Jap at the time.  From information to hand it  would appear that the white man  had become incensed at the Jap  whom he claimed was repeatedly  throwing out his net so as to  completely blanket his (the  whiteman's) net, thus taking an  unfair advantage. The Jap  when fired upon, having no rifle  in his boat, made no effort to  retaliate.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1914.  Unprecedented Situation.  -For the past century Europe  has enjoyed comparative peace.  True, there have been wars between individual nations, but  none in which the whole continent has been involved, and certainly none " fraught with the  tremendous consequences which  must result from the general  conflict which is proceeding at  the present time. Never in the  world's history have the opposing forces been of such stupendous proportions or so thoroughly trained or equipped for the  purposes of destruction. The  forces of the Triple Alliance,  with Bulgaria, total approximately nine million men, while  Russia, France, Great 'Britain,  and their allies can put more  than eleven million men in action.  While the Triple Entente has  the greater number of fighting  men, this advantage is offset by  the advantage of concentration  possessed by the Germanic-Italian federation, and the most confident of the nations concerned  cannot Jbut regard the outcome  with both doubt and alarm.  There is one respect, however,  in which the Triple Alliance  will be seriously handicapped,  and that is in ability to stand  the financial strain of a prolonged  warl Germany is the only one  partner in the Alliance whose  national wealth equals that of  either of the three partners in  the Triple Entente. France and  Great Britain are the richest  countries in the world, excepting  perhaps the United States. Russia also, is capable of prolonging  hostilities long . after the resources of such nations as Italy  and Austria are exhausted.  With France, it is a matter of  her very existence as a nation.  It is well remembered how, after  the Franco-Prussian war, Germany was minded to utterly destroy France as a nation, and  was only prevented from carrying that intention into effect by  the unanimous protest of the  other European nations. There  is good reason to fear, however,  that should a similar situation  arise Germany might not be so  easily restrained.  One of the articles in the compact of the Triple Alliance is to  the effect that in the event of a  war, conquered territory should  be divided amongst the  signa  tories. Were this to be carried  out it is plain to see that the  consequences to France and  possibly to Great Britain in case  of defeat would be disastrous.  Well may we hope that even at  this late moment some way may  present itself to the minds of the  greatEuropean diplomats, whereby peace may be restored and a  world-wide calamity averted.  o     o.   o     o     o  A  United Empire.  Only a matter of a fews days  ago Great Britain was boiling-  lover with political strife. The  Home Rule controyersey seemed  to threaten civil war. Today in  the face of the fact that she has  been forced to take an active  part in tne great struggle, all  internal dissensions are hushed  and the whole British nation  stands united. Great Britain is  an Empire first, and after that  an insular community, with its  own domestic problems. The  blast of war js ringing in the  ears of the British people, and  we shall hear no more about  Home Rule or any other local  controversy until accounts have  been settled with friend or foe  abroad.  This is the real secret of Britain's greatness, that the British  people are one when they need  to be one', and it has been already  proven that this is true of the  British over the seas as well as  those of the home land.  o .  o     o     o     o  Servia is a land of social equality, says the New York American.  It has no aristocracy or middle  class. Its officials are peasants  in gold braid. Its people live  well with little work. In 1900  it is said there was neither pauper nor workhouse in the country.  Servians would rather talk politics and recite poetry than drink.  What they like best are the singsong poems that tell of their  national heroes. "Every true  Serb lives as much in the past as  in the present." The greatest  patriotic outburst thathas shaken  the nation in recent years was  passionate resentment toward  Austria-Hungary in 1908, when  that country's annexation of  Bosnia and Herzegovina waked  Servia from the dream of a  great union of all the Serbs.  The "Unspeakable Turk" is  about the only European ruler  whose voice has not been heard  in the intertational battle song.  A European war without Turkey  being the principal or aiding and  abetting is something unprecedented.  o     o     o     o     o  According to Sir Felix Schuster, the eminent London financial  authority, France, Germany and  Russia have during;the last year  increased their accumulation of  gold by sixty million pounds.  These vast additions to the reserves were in no way due to  commercial or financial conditions but were the result of a  deliberate policy.     '  The three chief militarist  powers of Europe while increasing their armies, have been filling up their war chests.  o     o     o     o     o  The miracleof wireless telegraphy, which had already conquered  the air and the water, now penetrates the bowels of the earth.  German scientists by this all-  pervading medium have not only  located subterranean spring and  ore deposits, but ascertained  their depth. Moreover, miners  working 1000 feet below the service have received wireless messages from a point a mile and a  half away on the same level.  There is an evident future of  immense value to the mining industry in this discovery, for  mineral wealth discoverable by  no other means will be revealed  to man. And with wireless  equipment in mine pits, communication with entombed miners  j  will be possible in case of disaster and the work of rescue made  easier, besides cheering the prisoners with messages from home  and friends. The discovery  means not a little to British Columbia where only a tithe of its  hidden treasures have yet been  revealed.  o    o     o    o    o  Be sure you are right, but  don't be too sure that everybody  else is wrong.  Notice to Our Local Readers.  Arrangements have been made  by which the Courier will be able  to afford to its local readers the  latest news from the seat of war  from day to day. Lengthy bulletin's will be posted outside the  Courier office about 6 p. m. each  day until further notice.

But there is no question whatever that it is too late in the  world's history for any man to  drink freely, and all employers,  commercial and governmental,  are increasingly opposed to men  who drink at all.

This is the monthly record in  round numbers, 120,000 cheques  being drawn every month. It  seems only the day before yesterday when 50,000 cheques were  deemed to represent a tremendous monthly wage list. The  number of employees grows all  the time, in spite of careful appointment and economic working. These monthly cheques  find their way into the most distant, the oddest places. They  are hurried, in enclosures, to the  most distant parts of British Columbia. They find their way to  the construction camps, removed  from civilization. They reach  the employees at the wayside  station, showing a single tuft of  grass amid the general aridity.  And, however lonely or small  or discouraging the locality or  district, there will be someone  there to cash the cheque for the  employee. There may be a bank  in a tent, which is very frequently the fact. If there is no bank  there is a company's agent of  some kind to whom the cheques  will be addressed and who will  distribute them to the men in  the district. To make out the  pay lists and check them, and  control them, and issue the  cheques to correspond to the  book-keeping and get the work  so advanced as to have all things  ready at the right date, on the  stroke of the clock, requires a  large staff at headquarters.

Colonial Secretary's Duties.  Mr. Lewis Harcourt presided  at a meeting of the International Congress on Tropical Agriculture in London recently and  spoke principally on the question  of cotton-growing in the British  colonies and protectorates, but  especially on modern functions  of the Colonial Office.  Reviewing the work done by  the Colonial Office, Mr. Harcourt  added: "In these days the Colonial Office has more the attributes of an immense trading and  administrative concern than  those of earlier days, when it  was a mere machine of government. My days and nights are  spent in the study of medicine,  in the details of railway construction, with a desire that the smallest sum of money may lay the  largest number of miles of tracks  in the fewest possible days.

It embraces Russia, France and England. .The details of the Triple  Entente have never been made public, but it is accepted as certain  that France and Russia are absolutely bound in an offensive and  defensive alliance. Just how firmly England is bound is, not  known. Spain has become a party to this agreement, butto what  extent is conjectural. For Balkan reasons Greece and Rumania  will support Servia as against Austria. Russia's support of Servia  is a part of the Pan-Slavic programme as against the Pan-Germanic expansion plans.

' It was formerly the Dual Alliance entered into in 1879, when Germany and Austria pledged  themselves to joint action should either be assailed by Russia, and  to neutrality should either be assailed by another power. In 1883  Italy was admitted into the Dual Alliance and it became the Triple  Alliance. The treaty provides that should Russia assist any  nation at war with any of the signatories to the treaty the other  signatories must come to assistance. The treaty is very specific  in its terms and provides for a division of all territory acquired in  a victorious war. Under this treaty the Triple Alliance must back  Austria should Russia come to the assistance of Servia. In addition to the Triple Alliance powers, Bulgaria, for Balkan political  reasons, will support Austria.  Austria's Reason  for Causing War  of  9  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd.  VANCOUVER, B.C.

Manufacturers  SHIRTS PANTS OVERALLS  "MACKINAW" CLOTHING  London, August 1���������The reason  for Austria-Hungary's decision  to enter into hostile conflict with  Servia was the reply sent by the  Balkan state to the note from  Vienna demanding that Servia  take steps to put a stop to the  Pan-Servian propaganda on Austrian territory, and also punish  those Servians indirectly concerned  in  the assassination in  Bosnia on June 22nd of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to  the Austro-Hungarian throne.  The response of Servia was  considered by the foreign office  in Vienna as unsatisfactory, and  in a semi-official communication  made public, the Austrian government said that the reply was  filled with the spirit of. dishonesty.
