Official despatch from the front says: "Last remnants  of German cavalry have been defeated, and a large part of  their automobile artillery and ammunition trains have been  taken by the British. Huge numbers of their rank and file  have been either captured or cut off."  British officer says, German forces in France have failed.  Allies have them on the run in every direction. There will be  no siege of Paris and the government can safely return from  Bordeaux at once. British severely punish the Prussian  guard. An entire Jaeger regiment ol sharpshooters numbering nearly 3000 completely wiped out. British sustained very  little loss.  Russians continue victorious.    They have succeeded in driving in between the Austrian and German armies operating  . around Tomassow in Russian Poland, and have summoned the  entire right wing to surrender.  onday. Allies are driving General Von Buelow's army back towards the border. Germans are already two-thirds of the  distance back to the Belgian frontier.  Correspondents confirm the story that Russian troops are  in Belgium, and it is believed that these with the Belgians  who are already on the offensive will fall upon the retreating  German armies as soon as they cross the boundary line from  France. More British troops are also believed to be with the  Belgians and Russians.  The armies constituting the center of the German line of  advance have been forced across the frontier and the entire  French-Lorraine is now liberated.  Paris says the situation is believed to be well nigh hopeless  from German standpoint.    The Allies are hard on the heels of  Rout of Austrian  Army Is Complete  Russians Inflict Tremendous  Losses  London, Sept. 17.���������The official  press bureau issues the following  announcement: It is stated from  a Russian official source that the  rout of the Austrians in Galicia  is complete, though full details  are not being received. The  Austrian loss since the taking of  Lemburg is estimated at 250,000  killed and 100,000 wounded. Four  hundred guns, many colors, and  vast quantities of army stores  have also been captured by the  Russians.  The German reinforcements  made a desperate effort to save  the Austrian army but failed  completely. Their loss has also  been heavy. The Russians claim  to have killed, in Galicia, five  thousand Germans. At one point  thirty-six pieces of German heavy  artillery were captured  and  at  all three sections of great German force which invaded France. |anotner p,ace a large number of  pieces of siege artillery.  \>  WA^i  "*m  "3*  French defeat the famous German Imperial guard near Sezanne, where a hundred years ago Napoleon won a great victory.  Two German detachments each comprising 1000 men were  surrounded and refusing to surrender were wiped out to the  last man. The crowning stroke by the Allies was their closing  in like a pair of shears with Grand Morrine as the pivot. The  Germans were caught between the blades and were crushed.  Flower of Austrian army caught in trap by the Russians in  marshes of the river San is facing annihilation or surrender.  Tuesday. Allies continue to pursue the enemy across the border.  British and French armies will prevent the enemy from taking up strong defensive positions near the frontier of Germany. It is believed that the next phase of the gigantic war  will take place in German territory.  Official announcement from Berlin says that on the morning  of September 13th the small German cruiser Hela was sunk  by a torpedo from a hostile submarine. Almost the whole  crew was saved.  Despatch from Ghent says the retreating German forces are  being sorely pressed on all sides. The British are driving the  routed right wing everywhere before them and are inflicting  terrible losses. Each mile of its retreat is marked by numbers of dead and wounded, besides many abandoned pieces of  artillery and baggage wagons. The invading army seems to  have met its Moscow and Waterloo cannot be long delayed.  The German right wing is shattered to atoms, it is simply a  fugitive mob which flees night and day hoping to escape its  pursuers.  General Hoefer of the Austrian general-staff announces that the Servian army which crossed the river Sav  into Hungary was defeated with heavy loss in a big battle  yesterday.  Despatches from Rome claim that Austrian Generals Dankl  and Auffenberg have joined forces in Galicia, but in doing so  lost over forty per cent, of their armies.  Paris advices say it is believed that another big battle is  in progress north of the river Aisne and along the line from  Craonne to the forests of Laigle. "Result not known. A German  defeat would leave the enemy in very serious position as recent heavy rains prevent the quick removal of heavy artillery.  It is rumored that East Indian cavalry have arrived at the  front and will go into action immediately.  Reports say that the German Emperor is about to proceed  to East Prussia to take personal command against Russians.  Thursday.

A message from Bordeaux says that the German people  were completely stupefied on learning of the general retreat  of the German armies, but were told officially that the movement was but a piece of pre-conceived strategy. It is reported  that the German forces have been ordered to retreat to the  right bank of the Rhine, evacuating France,  Belgium and  The Austrian army is in a  serious plight and must soon surrender to save its utter annihilation.  ^% Wednesday  1 t������7SL<������  Invasion by Australians  London, Sept. 17.���������A dispatch  from Sidney tells the story of  the invading of Herbertshoe in  the Bismark Archipelago, a German possession in the southern  Pacific.

The proclamation appeared in the Canadian Gazette of Saturday last.  Hindu Immigration  Proposal Received  Warmly at Ottawa  > ,.      L   Considerable Satisfaction in the  Capital Over Suggested Method  to Control Arrivals from India  Ottawa, Sept. 17.��������� There is  considerable satisfaction with  the report that the Indian council has proposed a plan for the  control of the immigration of  Hindus. The adoption of the  Japanese arrangement would be,  it is said, entirely satisfactory  to Canada, and probably to Australia and South Africa, which  have also had Hindu incidents.  The arrangement with Japan  is that Japanese who reach Canada without passports may be  refused admission; that the Japanese shall confine their issue of  passports to merchants and students and to laborers to the  number of 600 a year only.  If it became known throughout India that Hindus could enter  Canada, Australia, New Zealand  and South Africa, only when they  have passports in their* possession, there would be no more  Komagata Maru incidents.  With passports required, the  authorities in India would have  in their own hands the control of  the volume of emigration of Hindus to all British overseas dominions, and would limit departures to the numbers and classes  of Hindus which Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand would be willing to receive  each year and able to assimilate.  ac><><^^<T^>^*������ff><-Hr>-<,������<r><^ ���������������>-<���������������  TO OUR READERS AND ADVERTISERS.

Pastor  On Tuesday last the editor of  this paper had the extreme  pleasure of a visit to the government experimental plot at Aytoun ranch, and under the guidance of Mr. S. Le C. Grant made  a complete inspection of the  premises.  The variety of crops,'and the  distinctly visible effects of the  various kinds of fertilizers upon  the growth and yield is both interesting and instructive. Anyone interested in agriculture or  horticulture is missing much if  he neglects to visit the experimental plot.  Mr. Grant, as the government  appointee in charge of the station  is the right man in the right  place. His heart is in his work  and only by indefatigable efforts  and the greatest care and attention to the minuest details has  he attained such pronounced  success.  Besides the experimental station Mr. Grant owns and operates an extensive farm, where  produce is grown that wrould  astonish any person not acquainted with conditions at this place.  The editor was extremely sorry  to hear from Mr. Grant that  owing to the lack of a proper  steamer service he finds it impossible to send an exhibit to the  exhibition at Prince Rupert. It  will be remembered how last year  Mr. Grant brought back no less  than fifteen first prizes to Bella  Coola, out of twenty-one secured  by local farmers. It was rumored some time ago that a  Grand Trunk steamer would  probably call here for the Bella  Coola exhibits, and it was anticipated that this valley would have  the opportunity of sending an  exhibit fairly and justly representative of what the place is  capable of producing.

SATURDAY; SEPT. 19, 1914.  Germany's Food Supply.  Little credence can be put in  the reports coming- from Europe  from time to time regarding the  shortage of food in the German  army. It may be that in one or  two instances the most advanced  forces have :nb������ been supplied  with the expected regularity.  But it is- highly probable that the  time is drawing near when, to  avoid starvation in his country,  the Kaiser will be compelled to  order his fleet out to give battle  with the British fleet in the hope  of lifting theiblockade from German ports .and making -possible  the entry of food to Germany.  At the commencement of the  war, Emperor Wilhelm was  credited with the statement that  Germany had a supply of food  sufficient'for a year. Known  facts regarding Germany's food  sources make such a condition  highly incredible, however.  While both Germany and Austria  grow large grain crops, Germany  imports about ninety million  bushels of wheat annually for  current consumption. The bulk  of the importations for this year  were on the sea en route to her  when war was declared, and  nearly all of this was promptly  seized by British cruisers. Her  supplies from Russia were cut  off, and Austria, whose crops  this year are, reported as being  very light, will require all she  can secure for her own use.  It is highly improbable that  Germany has sufficient supplies  in hand to last more than a few  months. To secure food for the  country it will then be necessary  for the Kaiser's navy to risk all  in a sea fight. The German public  who have paid for the navy will  demand some service in return  for their money.  o     o     o     o     o  British Columbia's gift to the  Motherland is to take the form  of 25,000 cases of canned salmon.

Increased Activities in the  ������������������ dian Cotton Mills  C  ana-  i  The war in Europe is causing  greatly increased activity in the  cotton industry in Canada. Cotton factories that were running  on short time for months previous to the breaking out of  hostilities are now being operated at full capacity. In many  plants the employees are working  overtime three or four nights a  week, while in some plants night  and day shifts are being employed. Although much of the overtime and double shifts are due to  rush orders from the Government, conditions in the cotton  industry are such as to justify  the belief that practically all employees of Canadian cotton mills  are assured of continued employment at full time.  The imports of manufactured  cotton into Canada has been running at about 60 per cent, of the  consumption in this -country.  While the largest importations  have come from the United Kingdom there have been substantial  imports from Germany, France  and Switzerland. The shutting  off. of imports from Germany and  the curtailment of imports from  France and Switzerland means  that much of the cotton that has  been imported into Canada from  these countries will now have to  be made in this country. The  Canadian cotton mills are also  being called upon to supply a  portion of the trade that formerly went to the United Kingdom.  This is due to the increased cost  of cotton imported from the  United Kingdom owing to increased freight rates, exchange,  and insurance, and to uncertain  ty on the> part of many dealers  regarding delay or loss in shipment,     . ��������� '���������'.  The condition of stocksin the  retail trade in Canada at the  commencement of hostilities was  another factor in bringing about  the increased demand upon the  Canadian cotton mills. For some  time previous to the breaking  outof the war the consumption  of cotton in Canada had been  very much under normal.; Unsatisfactory business conditions  had resulted in dealers allowing  their stocks to run down. Many  dealers who did place orders for  future needs made their orders  subject to later instructions as  to delivery. It is a significant  and most encouraging fact that  since the commencement of hostilities most of such orders have  been released for immediate  shipment. The release of those  orders, together with the receipt  of new orders from regular  customers who had delayed ordering because of the uncertainty of the crop and business conditions generally, and orders  from other dealers who had  formerly ordered abroad, are  giving the cotton industry in  Canada a great impetus at this  time.  The putting of cotton to new  uses to replace other imported  raw materials that cannot be  secured is still another reason  for the increased activities in the  cotton industry in this country.  It has been customary to use jute  in the making of sugar bags and  flour bags for export purposes.

The holding up of  several shipments of jute has resulted in a dearth of jute in Canada and the substitution of heavy  cotton for jute in the manufacture of flour and sugar bags. I f  the importation of jute continues  to be impossible or is materially  curtailed, it may be necessary to  use heavy cotton instead of jute  in the making of oil cloth. Other  possible uses for cotton are being  investigated by Canadian manufacturers and as one of- them  puts it, "new uses are being discovered every day."  |    Thus the outlook for ihe col ton  industry in Canada  is Wighier  j today than it has been for tome  time.

JOHN LINTON TOUGH.  Date. July 31. 1911. Auk. 15-Oct. 30.  VANCOUVER LAND DISTRICT  The Original Handy Man.  A colonel wanted a man-servant, so he inserted an advertisement in the local weekly. One  of the applicants who answered  was an Irishman.  "What I want," explained the  colonel, "is a useful man���������one  who can cook, drive a motor,  look after a pair of horses, clean  boots and windows, feed poultry,  milk the cow, and do a little  painting and paperhanging."  "Excuse me, sor," said Murphy, "but what kind of soil have  ye here?"  "Soil?" snapped the colonel.  "What's that got to do with it?"  "Well, I thought if it was clay  I might make bricks in me spare  time."���������Everybody's.  The Yellow Peril.  That New York newspaper  which has private information  that every night a Zeppelin airship flits out into the North sea  and that when it returns there  is one less English battleship  afloat must be anxious for an indefinite prolongation of the war.  In the nineteen days so far it has  sunk nineteen English vessels.  If the kaiser can stretch out  hostilities say for 150 days the  English navy will be wiped out,  while that of Germany will be  still intact and will be supreme  upon the seas. With such awful  maritime doings going on it is  no wonder that the English  censorship is so strict���������Philadelphia Record.  PLAIN PEOPLE PAY.

I 1  B  r~n [  \1LTHAT person so happy and conten-  tented as the prosperous farmer?  \)L7HAT person so independent?  "VJifHAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of  the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  THE 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.  :#:���������?'

Mr. Grant stated  that he would endeavor to send  a few samples from the experimental plot as a non-competitive  exhibit. It certainly cannot be  expected thatour farmers would  be content to send their produce  to Vancouver there to be transhipped to Prince Rupert. The  stuff would doubtless arrive in  bad condition and would consequently make a very poor showing. "     .  Prince Rupert Exhibition Will  Take Place as Advertised  Prince Rupert, Sep. 18.���������It has  been definitely decided to hold  the Exhibition of the Northern  British Columbia Agricultural  and Industrial Association as advertised, September 30th and  October 1st and 2nd.  Capt. T. Baldwin of NewYork,  is under contract to perform four  flights on his new and up-to-date  aeroplane within the three days  of the exhibition, so that everyone will have a chance to seeone  of the most famous of modern  airmen.  Amongst the chief attractions  will be the Association .Football  Cup Competition for which there  are already entered the -five  teams of the Prince Rupert Football League, under the auspices  of which league the competition  will take place. Any team in  Northern British Columbia is  eligible for this competition and  teams from Terrace, Smithers  and Hazelton are expected to  compete.  It has been found necessary to  cut out the live-stock classes and  some others; the foUowing is a  complete list of those cancelled:  1, 2, 3, 4, -5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15,  22, 23, 28r33, 34, 35, 36. In class  25, sections 3,A, 5 are cut out  arid in class 35,.,sections 28 to 38  are retained for the children.  In class 24 all prizes will be reduced to half what is shown in  the prize list. By comparing  these figures with the prize list it  will be seen that all the important classes are kept in.  How to Win Battles  More Victories are  won by  siege tactics than by assaults.  Apply this to business and see what it  means: it means that continuous and steady  advertising is more resultful than campaigns that come and go, come and go  with long intervals in between.  For an advertiser with goods to sell  to suspend his selling effort now is to  make conditions worse for himself, and is  no sign of that courage which is supposed  to'possess every Canadian heart in these  war times.
