Soldiers on battle front at Warsaw say Emperor Wilhelm  narrowly escaped capture on the battlefield, barely escaping  in an automobile from a force of Cossacks.  The most important battle of the war now raging on the  line from Nieuport to Dixmunde. Germans evacuating all  Belgian town and hurling full strength against the Allies  with the object of capturing Dunkirk and Calais.  Official despatch from Petrograd says the Germans are retreating south of Warsaw and west of .Ivangorod. Fighting  continues in Galicia on the Sandomar front at Przmsyl. Two  thousand Austrians taken prisoners yesterday.  Unconfirmed report from Bombay states the German cruiser  Emden has been accounted for. This is taken as meaning  either sunk or captured. Admiralty states that seventy cruisers of Allied fleet are searching the seas for stray German  cruisers. Up to now only thirty-nine British merchant ships  have been lost, while Germany's overseas trade has practically ceased, one hundred and thirty-three of her merchant vessels having been captured.  German garrison left Antwerp on Friday in response to urgent orders,  mday. Berlin despatches explain General Von Moltke's disappearance in that he is suffering from a bilious attack. His  place is, taken by General Von Falkenhagne. General Von  Rin Hardt has been killed in Belgium.  French embassy at Washington issued-a statement today  that twenty German prisoners declare under oath that General  Stenger had issued orders to give no quarter but to kill all  prisoners and wounded. These orders were carried out in  the battle of August 26. A German official denial styles this  ���������*2&<charge as an impudent lie.  r The Germans have been driven back on the western wing.  The enemy are calling out old men and youths and hurrying  them to the front. .Heavy fighting is taking place at Ostend,  British warships shelling the suburbs held by the enemy.  Only points in Belgium strongly held by Germans are Liege  and Namur. Germans are replacing fortress guns at Antwerp  with German heavy artillery of latest type, and are preparing  a line of retreat from the Ostend-Dixmunde battle line.  Tuesday. A despatch to London Daily Telegraph declares the  ��������� German success in crossing the Yser canal was only shortlived. The Belgian entrenchments taken by the enemy were  retaken at the bayonet point, the enemy being tumbled back  -- pell-mell over the Yser, losing many by drowning. 2500  dead Germans were found in the canal after Sunday morning's battle and the water was red with blood. The streets  of Dixmunde were thick with the dead bodies of German  soldiers. The orders to the German troops were to cross the  canal that night if it cost thousands of lives. The Germans  did cross, but were mowed down by terrific fire and hurled  back with the bayonet. Over 5000 were killed. A Times despatch says the most ferocious attack along the Yser was at  Ypres, where a quarter of a million Germans were hurled back  by British forces. The artillery fire against the British in  trenches was terrible, often burying men in dozens. The  enemy's infantry repeatedly advanced within ,a few hundred  yards of the British trenches, but each time the British troops  leaped from the trenches and charged with the bayonet, the  Germans broke and fled leaving their dead and wounded.  Official reports state that the German casualty lists average  1.0,000 daily, killed and wounded.  Germans evacuate several important positions near Arras  and Rheims. At Bellechappelle a ferocious encounter took  place in a cemetery between French and German troops, during which the church was destroyed.  Official despatch from Petrograd says great battle resumed  On routes leading to PetrokofF. In a battle near Mazamerjeff  the Russians captured two batteries of machine guns. Russian troops command the fortress of Nemglove where 400  prisoners were taken. The resistance by the Austrian army  in Galicia is weakening and the Russians are making vigorous  progress in region of Sambor, where they captured eleven  canon and 150 prisoners. The Germans covered thirty miles  in their first retreat from Warsaw. The' capture of Lovvicz  ensures to the Russians the possession of country 80 miles  wesc of Warsaw.  Austrian losses in Galicia on Tuesday last were 17 officers,  4150 men, 22 cannon and large quantities of stores. Russian  cavalry are in pursuit of the enemy.  Paris despatches report that the Germans have seized the  Prince of Monaco's chateau near Rheims, and declare they  will blow it up unless they get a ransom of half a million dollars. The Prince has addressed an appeal to the neutral  countries.  Under a new military agreement between Austria and Germany, Emperor Wilhelm takes the leadership of the united  armies.  Bombs From German  Aeroplanes Kill  Women and Children  London, Oct. 30.���������Two, German aeroplanes dropped bombs  on the city of Bethurn, France,  on Wednesday. One bomb fell  in the crowded market place  killing nineteen women and injuring forty-three. Several  women and children were also  killed at Dunkirk by the same  means.

Montreal Is Warned  German Organization  Said to be Ready  Montreal, Oct. 30. ��������� Acting-  Mayor Vandela this morning  handed a letter over to Chief of  Police Cam'peau which states���������  and it is written by a person who  apparently knows the facts of  the case���������that there is an organized band of Germans and Austrians in the city who- are possessed of several wireless outfits,  bombs, explosives and firearms.  This band of men, it is said by  the author of the letter, is ready  at a moment's notice to cause an  appalling amount of damage in  the city of Montreal. The writer  of the letter signs his full name  and'address, and gives facts to  show that his connection with  the German organization is a  bona fide one.  Turkish Destroyers Sink Russian Gunboat  Greece  Likely to Join Belligerents  Bordeaux, Oct. 30. ���������An official bulletin says two Turkish torpedo  boat destroyers entered Odessa harbor yesterday and sank a Russian gunboat and damaged the French liner Portugal.  Embassies of the allied powers have made arrangements to leave  Constantinople. Turkey's entrance into the war is considered  likely to bring in Greece and possibly other Balkan powers. Great  forces of Turkish troops are supposed to be massed on the frontiers  of Russia and Egypt. The London Times says Great Britain is  ready for war with Turkey having long ago made all necessary  preparations in Egypt and along Suez. A London despatch says  Greece is reported as anxious to measure swords with Turkey  again. The acquisition by Turkey of the two German warships  Goeben and Breslau is more than offset by the acquisition by  Greece of two battleships from the United States.  Hindoo Stands Trial  C. P. R.

German losses in recent fighting on the Nieuport-Dixmunde  line are estimated at 16,000 killed and 30,000 wounded. Four  hundred vehicles laden with German wounded passed through  Ostend Sunday. Telegrams from Cologne and Coblens declare the war on the German right flank is now a massacre.  Long trains filled with wounded continue to pour into Cologne  and Coblens hospitals are completely overwhelmed.  The Belgians are reported to have lost 10,000 men when  driven from the banks of the Yser, the crossing of which cost  the Germans more men than any single engagement of the war.  Netherlands government asking for 3,000,000 guilders ($1,  200,000) for maintenance of Belgian refugees.  Several mines have been washed ashore below Ostend.

The  Government's  Way of  Encouraging Land  Settlement.  rWe reacMn Vancouver daily  papers that, with several weeks  yet to wait> men are gathering  on the steps of the court house  in anticipation of procuring preemption records on provincial  lands. According to accounts,  these people.have been drenched  to the skin by heavy rains, and  are undergoing very severe hardships, all occasioned *by the system employed by a-government  that professes to encourage the  settler in every way possible.  Yet if these would-be settlers  are to acquire the land they desire, they will be compelled to  accept their pitiable lot until  November 21, when the land at  at Powell River, which they are  so anxious -to settle and bring  under cultivation, will be alotted  by the goverement.  British Columbia needs settlers  and plenty "of them" if we., are  ever to become the producing  province we ought to be. This  is admitted .by anyone who has  taken the trouble to become informed as , to the conditions  effecting the settlement of our  lands, and as regards our decreasing exports and increasing  imports of agricultural products.  Yet, when it comes down to obtaining desirable land close to  transportation, men are compelled to lay siege to the court  house for more than a month  under the most trying conditions.  Is this the way to encourage  the settlement of our lands?  Certainly not,- nor is it compatible  with any sanfe idea of good government. These men are in  earnest. They require the land  they are after. They are not  undergoing their present trials  for the mere fun of the thing.  Yet the government would appear to be anxious to tire them  out, that they may eventually  give up the effort and go away  to take up land elsewhere, where  they can obtain it by more simple  and less arduous means.  If the government really desires settlers for our lands,, it  might easily show its appreciation of these determined men by  at, least providing shelter for  them and making.their long wait  a little less of a hardship.  Much has been heard from  time to time of the land settle-  merit committee' of. the Vancouver Board of Trade. Are they  satisfied that these would-be  settlers should be treated in this  way?  What has Chas. Tisdall, M. L.  A. to say about it? Or does, he,  like many others, save air his  talk on such matters fordection-  eering purposes?-  So long as intending settlers  are so treated, the less the government, says about encouraging  land, settlement the better, and  as for the land settlement committee of the Vancouver Board  of Trade, they have been talking  tor years, and that seems the  extent of their effort.  o    o     o     o    o  A  Wise Move.  The Prince Rupert Board of  Trade are to be congratulated on  their wise action in striving to  have Prince Rupert made a free  port for United States fishermen,  and so endeavoring to remove  obstacles which might hinder  the city from becoming the greatest fishing centre in the whole  Dominion.  Prince Rupert must be able-to  supply these fishermen at prices  not in excess of those obtaining  at American ports, and to do this  it will be necessary to eliminate  all surcharges, such as port dues  on ��������� all imported goods, which  goods have in many cases already  paid the government a heavy  import duty.  The consumer is the one to be  considered, and it should be seen  to that he is. not driven out by  any unwise and shortsighted  government regulations.  A merchant.contemplating the  purchase of goods from abroad  first ascertains the price of the  goods, to this he adds the freight  and any port dues-which may be  charged at the port of delivery,  and his selling price is fixed accordingly. So it is that the consumer has to pay an increased  price for everything which comes  into that particular port.  Eyery boom of logs towed into  Vancouver harbor today is subject to a charge of ten cents per  thousand feet, and so with everything else that enters that port.  It is just this condition that  Prince Rupert's Board of Trade  is anxious tq avoid, and it is  hoped that its efforts will be extended with the idea of bringing  the trade of the whole coast,  north from Queen Charlotte  Sound, into their city.  O      O      O      O'    o  Prince Rupert now enjoys a  mail service to and from the  East over the G. T. P.  iWe wonder if, when sending  mail from Bella Coola to Prince  Rupert it would not be well to  mark our letters "via Varicou-  ver, Ashcroft, Calgary, Edmonton, Fort George, and Fort Fra-  ser," and so perhaps ensure a  quicker and safer delivery. There  would at least be the consolation  of knowing that your letter was  travelling all the time, and not  laying for days in a post office,  waiting to be sent back over the  route it had already come.  Of course it would be out of  the question to think of sending  farm,produce by that route, but  na more so than by the present  route.  o     o     o     o     o  One Benefit From the War.  The promise from the Czar  that after the termination of the  war the sale of vodka is to be  barred indefinitely is the most  important announcement for the  cause of temperance ever made.  It is one of the few benefits to  come from the war. When his  troops took the field two months  ago the Czar issued an edict prohibiting the sale of the national  beverage. It was not intended  then that prohibition should be  more than temporary, as a war  expedient. The effect of temperance upon the army and the  population has been so great,  however, that the promise has  been given of the continued suspension of the sale of vodka.  This imperial decree marks an  improvement not only in the  morale of the people of Russia,  but in the government itself.  The government of the empire  has a monopoly in the sale of  spirits, and as about thirty per  cent, of the total revenue of the  government has been derived  from' this source, the people have  been encouraged to increase the  consumption. Entirely regardless of the state of drunkenness  and degradation caused by the  policy, the government multiplied the number of shops where  vodka was sold, and did everything else-possible to increase  the traffic. Only in rare cases  has a Russian statesman bothered to protest against the conditions which resulted from such  a policy.       <  The war, however, has opened  the eyes of* the Czar and  his  ministers, an'd at least one good  is  to come   from   the   terrible  havoc and bloodshed.  That Gun.  The yarn that the Krupps were  building a gun that would shoot  twenty-five "miles is on a par  with the story of the bull which  dashed out of Rheims and killed  eighteen wide-eyed wondering  soldiers of the Kaiser. Why the  inventor of the interesting fiction limited the range of the gun  to twenty-five miles is a mystery.  He should have risen to the situation and described the fearful  and wonderful weapon as capable  of sending several tons of shrapnel from Essen to London.  However, even if the* Krupps  actually have devised the monster  gun as the Germans imprudently  are announcing to the world, we  have it on excellent authority  that the British have taken precautions to safeguard , their  country against bombardment  from Calais. They have arranged with the Admiralty to  tow the islands a few miles out  of range and, as the men who  fire the German gun are unable  to see the object fired at, they,  will not know that all their shells  are dropping harmlessly into the  North Sea. So there is no cause  for alarm in the tight little isle.  ���������Exchange.  To Boost Production.  The sure way to boost production in Canada is to stop taxing  production. Let the burden of  taxation be taken off productive  industry and produce will tend  to expand automatically.

Rupert,  Oct. 29.--The  inauguration of the new through  service between  Prince Rupert  and  the  East  rendered by the  opening  for   commercial  traffic  of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, is an  important event in  the history of Canada's railroads,  for it marks the completion of  the   main   line   of   the   Grand  Trunk's great  western  system  and gives the Dominion a new  transcontinental highway.   The  line from the head of Lake Superior (Fort William to Edmonton)  has been in operation for  some years and has proved very  popular with the travelling public.    Trains have also been operated from  Edmonton westward  to Prince George, a distance of  486 miles, and from Prince Rupert eastward   to   Priestley,   a  recipe  Royal  "open  cooking.  m  any  flour.  is   the  ROYAL STANDARD is  the wizard of the kitchen.

The laying of the steel  was actually completed in April  last, but following its policy of  placing its roadbed and bridges  in absolute first class condition  the railway waited until the present month for the inauguration  of its through service.  It is very gratifying no doubt  to merchants, settlers, etc., in  Northern British Columbia and  to the public generally to note  thatstandard equipment, particularly sleeping cars, is now being  hauled through in each direction  and as it is believed many of the  pioneers and others have promised themselves a trip with the  completion of the new Jfcne.'-fch.e  opportunity now presents itself.  The Grand Trunk Pacific railway  connects at Fort William with  the palatial steamers of the Northern Navigation Co., handling  business on the Great Lakes between Fort William and Sarnia;  at the latter point connection is  made with the Grand Trunk railway system for Toronto, Ottawa,  Montreal,   New  York,   Niagara  Falls, Hamilton, Buffalo and all  Eastern points.     Connection is  also made at Winnipeg for St.  Paul, Minneapolis, Omaha, Kansas City, Chicago, and all points  South, in addition to which Eastern    Canadian    and   American  points may be reached via Chicago as an  alternate  route.    Tc  this we may add that the Grand  Trunk Pacific are now equipped  to handle business to practically  all  points  on  account of their  numerous connections, not only  by rail but by Atlantic steamers  as well..  The thriving townships in the  interior of the province along the  main line of this road will in particular feel the beneficial effect  of this service, and a new impetus is likely to' be given to  business throughout the whole  of Western Canada. This gives  the Grand Trunk Pacific 2,195  miles of main line to which it has  numerous branch lines.  The new through passenger  service has been arranged that  trains leave Prince Rupert every,  Wednesday and Saturday at 10-  a.m., arriving Prince George the  following . morning, Edmonton  the next day and Winnipeg the  following   noon. Westbound  trains leave Winnipeg Saturdays  and Mondays at 6 p. m. arriving  at the Pacific Coast terminal at  6 p. m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� dition of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

These  figures have doubtless been  greatly augmented during the  last two weeks.  A large store on. Fort Street  has been engaged, and here a  voluntary staff is constantly engaged in sorting, packing and  preparing the miscellaneous assortment of goods for shipment.  The Courier management has  been approached by several local  farmers who are desirous of as:  sisting in the work which is the  duty of every Britisher, who cannot, for good and sufficient reason, enlist for active service in  defence of the Empire.  The question has been asked,  "Can the Red Cross Society at  Vancouver handle a shipment of  farm produce, so that the proceeds from the sale of same could  go towards the 'funds of the  society.'' The Red Cross Society  have written declining the offer,  pleading that they have no facilities for handling farm produce.  Not so the Daughters of the Empire at Victoria. If they have at  present no means of handling  such a donation, they are pre  pared to find the means should  occasion arise, and have announced that they would gladly  welcome any such shipment from  Bella Coola, the full market value of which will be realized and  placed to the credit of the Belgian relief fund.  Let there be no such a thing  as produce going to rot. on the  ground or in the cellars. We  appeal to every farmer in the  valley to contribute what he can  spare towards the noble work  undertaken by the ladies of Victoria.  All who have produce to spare  for this purpose are asked to  communicate with the Courier  management, who will arrange  for transportation of same to the  wharf.
