Lewis  Harcourt, in message outlining  the first month of the war, states  that the British navy should be  increased within twelve months  by ten capital ships, fifteen cruisers and twenty destroyers. During the same period Germany will  not add more than one third that  number to her navy.  Germ  ans in  Full Retreat  Allies Refuse Armistice  German Aeroplane Destroyed  Amsterdam, Sept. 11.���������A large  German aeroplane was brought  to ground today by the Belgians.  Three German officers were captured. The officers were well  known experts of the Krupp  armament company who delivered guns to the new Belgian forts  a few months ago.  " Summary of News from Seat of War  *$$.  m  7&  I  I  ;;||||; Official announcement from London 11:45 p. m. Tuesday states  ;'M^'- that the position of the French and Allies continues satisfac  tory.  f '-     An effective recruiting bill displayed in London has the following  in large black letters:  "Read these words.    We have to beat  Germany because her arrogant brutality is menace to civilization; because she breaks treaties, murders non-combatants,  .-- destroys beautiful cities,   fires on  sacred  red  cross.     Her  \ avowed object is to crush Great Britain.    Men of England re-  ������ member Louvain.    The fight is democracy versus tyranny.  '/���������} Do you wish to share the fate of Belgium, if not, enlist now."  V The London Telegraph urges Canada to immediate action regarding the appropriation of $35,000,000 for British navy. If Canada places that amount at the disposal of Great Britain, the  admiralty could quickly secure plans which completely neutralize the Reichstag's action giving the German admiralty a  blank cheque for pushing naval construction to the utmost.  fThe steamer Noordam of the Holland-America line with one hundred German reservists has been captured by a British cruiser  and taken to Queenstovvn.  *S������Sixty thousand Belgian refugees from the war zone are expected  S������&        to reach England in the next few days.    Great Britain supplies  )f#        the necessary transports.  *M������ Russian war office announces that the Austrian army in Galicia  and Poland is retreating in great disorder pursued by Russian  s^ cavalry who capture many guns and men.  $^|������ Despatch from Vienna says, "It is officially announced that a new-  battle commenced around Lorn burg today, Wednesday."  Slav provinces seeking opportunity to revolt.  Despatch from Shanghai says the British Cornwall and Gloucestershire regiments are ordered to Marseilles. They will be transported by a Pacific Mail Line steamer accompanied by the  hospital ship Delta and convoyed by a British cruiser.  E. M. Cuiq Mars, king's printer of the province of Quebec, who  was in Amiens when the German troops visited the town, says  the mayor and councillors were led away as hostages by German cavalry. The population were told these persons would  be immediately shot if any harm was done to German soldiers.  Illustrative of the ferocity of the German troops Mr. Cuiq  Mars tells of an Amiens butcher who answered a German  soldier somewhat brusquely. For this he was hanged by the  neck in front of his shop for every passerby to see.  It is reported that Belgian army at Antwerp have driven Germans  back to the environs of Louvain, and is active in other quarters.  German force of 400 which entered Nyassaland driven off at the  -,   point of the bayonet by the British troops.  Paris, Sept. 9.���������The most important and stubbornly contested  battle yet fought is now in progress to the east of Paris. The  military authorities decline to  give any indications of the number of men engaged, but according to those in a position to obtain authentic information, hundreds of thousands are engaged  on both sides, and the casualties  are said to be heavy.  The Germans today requested  an   armistice   of   twenty-four  hours, but this was met with a  point-blank refusal, accompanied  by the following message: "We  grant you that much time to get  out of France, otherwise, fight."  An  official  communication issued by the war office says the  Germans are in full retreat, but  while retreating delivered several successful   counter   attacks.  The fighting today extended  along both the Ourcq and Lome  rivers.      Later news says the  Allies are engaged in a strong  offensive movement but are finding progress exceedingly difficult.  British hopes as to the final  result of the great battle now  raging run extremely high.    It  is   understood   that   the   great  numerical superiority which has  been so great an asset to German  calculations,   no   longer exists.  In fact, it is believed that the  Allied forces are equal to, if not  superior in numbers to the German armies opposing them.  Russian Advance  Continues Steadily  Austria Fears Revolution  Petrograd, Sept. 10.���������A dispatch from a highly authoritative  source reports signs of a general  Austrian retreat on the whole  front between the rivers Bug  and Vistula. It is further stated  that the fortresses of Prezemsyl  and Jaroslav, and the river Vistula are the only obstacles the  Austrians now have to prevent  the Russian advance.  The dispatch says that Austria  is in fear that a revolution will  break out in Bukowina where  Hungarian sentiment is reported  to be growing rapidly in favor  of Russia.  Few Wounded by Bullets  Albania's King Quits  Durazzo, Albania, Sept. 10.���������  Prince William of Wied has quit  his new kingdom, taking passage  for Venice on the Italian steamer Misurala.  London, Sept. 10.���������The Daily  Chronicle's Havre correspondent  commenting on the small part  which rifle fire plays in the German attacks, quotes a Red Cross  surgeon who, he says, declares  that out of 500 wounded he has  treated only one who was suffering from a rifle bullet. All the  others had been injured by shrap-  nell or shell fire.   .  German Line of Communication Cut  The Tide Turns  Paris, Sept. 10.��������� Describing  the turn of tide which has taken  place over the whole war area in  France, an official communication says that pait of the German  line of communication has been  cut, which fact will materially  aid the Allies in driving the  enemy back.  An official announcement from  Bordeaux states that on the left  wing all attempts by the Germans to break through the  French lines on the right bank  of the river Ourcq have completely failed. The French have captured two German standards. On  the left wing the British and  French troops have crossed the  river Marne between La Ferte  and   Jourre   and   Chateau,   the  enemy falling back about fifty  miles. The Allies are now pushing the enemy who is in retreat.  During the course of their advance the British forces took a  large number of prisoners and  captured Mitrailleuses. Between  Chateau Keirsy and Vitry Le  Francois the Prussian guard has  been driven back. Action continues with great severity in the  region between Chau de Mailley  and Vitry Le Francois. In the  center and right wing there is  no change in the situation. In  Orinain and Argonne districts  the two opposing forces are  maintaining their positions. The  Allies have gained considerable  ground in the forest of Champe-  noux. The Germans seem to be  experiencing great difficulty in  provisioning their troops.

Another cruiser  or two will probably join the  Idzumo, with headquarters at  Esquimau.  The Kaiser Proclaims  Himself  Petrograd, Sept. 10.���������According to German prisoners, the  Kaiser's speech to his troops on  their departure for the front appears to have been of an extraordinary character. The text  appears to have been as follows:  "Remember, the German people  are the chosen ones of God. I  am his weapon, his sword, his  Vice Regent. Woe to the disobedient, death to cowards, etc.  Russian newspapers remark  that this speech goes far to show  that the German Emperor is suffering from the familiar worm  of insanity known as "Mania  graseosa."

We would be glad, therefore, if you would remit to us as  much money as you can spare."  In view of the above appeal it  has been decided that the treasurer of the Bella Coola Red Cross  fund shall send the amount at  present in hand, viz: $212, to the  secretary-treasurer of the Vancouver branch by the next mail  steamer.

SATURDAY, SEPT. 12, 1914.  The Price of Defeat.  It may be depended upon that  the ruthless brutality with which  the Germans have so far conducted their operations will cost  them dear in the end. Acts.of  violence which they inflicted upon peasants, women and children  in. Belgium may fill some people  with terror, but the armies in  the field and the British, French  and Russian governments will be  doubly determined that finally  utter defeat shall come to the  forces of the LKaiser.  The exaction of forty- millions  blood money "from Brussels can  only be taken as a reminder, that  when Germany fights and wins  the vanquished pay. It is for  treasure and territory she fights.  What victorious Germany would  demand as compensation for her  efforts today; is beyond speculation. The forty millions wrung  from the city of Brussels gives  but a faint idea. Dread of the  acts which would follow the success of Germany will inspire the  allied nations, to give their last  man and their last dollar to the  pursuit of victory.  So it is, that almost at the commencement .of hostilities, Germany has inspired her opponents  with a desperation which will  choose annihilation rather surrender.  The route -to/ Paris has not  been smoothed by the action of  the Germans, in Belgium.  Lord Kitchener has made clear  the fact that the war is not yet  over, but has barely begun.  A Scrap of Paper.  Very little good is likely to  come of any protest from the  powers against the flagrant  breaches of international regulations by the Germans. Belgian  neutrality was only a "mere  word." such was the reply of  the Imperial- Chancellor to the  British ambassador, when Britain's protest against Germany's  violation was lodged. For a  mere, "scrap of paper"���������������������������the  treaty undertaking guaranteeing  Belgian neutrality ��������� Germany  would not change her plans of  action.  When international obligations  are so disregarded by Germany's  war councillors, what consideration can be expected to be paid  to a protest against the dropping  of bombs, in the night, amongst  non-combatant residents of a  city, or against the imposition of  a war tax on occupied territory ?  Germany is not going to be impeded in her course by any such  fine considerations.   .  o     o     o     o     o  A Strong Contrast.  The congratulatory message  sent by\ the Admiralty to the  British cruiser Highflyer, upon  the sinking of the German armed  merchant cruiser Kaiser Wilhelm  der Grosse, was distinctly -British  and stands out in strong contrast  to Germany's war manners .as  theyJhaye so far come to light.  With the knowledge that British troops had .suffered heavy  loss at the hands of the Germans;  the admiralty devotes half its  message to asking the captain to  deal leniently with the men taken  from the enemy's ship.  "The German officers and men  appear to have carried out thei r  duties with humanity and restraint, and therefore are worthy  of seaman-like' consideration."  So reads the message from the  British government.  Repaid With Their Own Coin  Japan, during her war with  China twenty years ago, occupied  Port Arthur.- Germany and Russia got together and ordered her  to evacuate the' place. Japan  quietly swallowed the ultimatum  and abandoned Port Arthur,  which was immediately occupied  by Russia. Germany took possession of Kiau Chau. But Japan  was not disposed to forget.  Ten years ago, in her war with  Russia,- one of her objectives  -was Port Arthur. At the cost  of thousands pf lives.she took  the place and inflicted serious  defeats on Russian arms both on  land "and sea.    *  Now comes the settling of her  account with Germany. The  ultimatum which she sent to  Berlin was couched in the exact  phraseology of the demand which  Germany and Russia made upon  her twenty years ago. She is  determined to destroy Germany's  influence in China for all'time.  With the conquest of Kiau Chau,  Japan will have evened the  score.  women who must work now and  who will weep later; the women  who will .find labor instead of  glory in the great war; the  women who must always look at  the grim, hopeless side of things,  and who are never enthused or  encouraged by the tinsel, the  glamor and the roar that drive  men on.  Old soldiers say that when the  guns begin to boom and the bullets to whistle, even raw recruits  forget to feel afraid; that there  is a fascination about the noise  and confusion that hypnotises  them into action.  :.;.;What about the women ? For  them their is no noise and confusion. They realize that war  is on only when the wounded  and dead are brought home to  recuperate or to be buried; when  flour gets scarce or when the  son sends a missive penned by  another's hand; when the hus-  band indites a loving message to  his children on the eve. of agreat  battle which warns him he will  not return alive.  We read with thrills about concentration   here,   of skirmishes  there, and of all the other phases  and activities that go,to make  up the great military game that  is being played by millions of  men.     What about the women  who are doing the real work, and  who will later be called upon to  pay the price���������the women who,  Horace   Greeley said,   should  never vote until they shouldered  the musket, but who nevertheless have been compelled to carry  every army, every campaign, and  every military expedition upon  their bended   backs   since   the  dawn of creation?���������Exchange.

The Daily Mail, London, says:  The money panic is over, and the  rise in food prices has been  steadied. Canada's magnificent  gift of a million sacks of flour  has had an enormous effect.

It is gratifying to read how  the various provinces throughout  the  Dominion  are  coming  forward with offers of their respective products to the Motherland.  One province is to send oats,  another wheat, a third cheese, a  fourth flour, all of which will do  much towards the   support   of  Great Britain   in   this  time  of  stress.    Thus is Canada showing  her loyalty in no uncertain way.  It would be well at this time  for us to remember British Columbia's richness and to see to  it that she is not outclassed in  the character and usefulness of  her gift to the Motherland.    We  have up to the present a brief-  intimation   that  our   provincial  government contemplates the gift  of a large quantity  of apples.  Providing that this is eventually  decided upon, the actual usefulness of the gift at the present  time, and its suitability for the  purpose it is intended, is decide-  edly open to question, and indeed  is being questioned freely.   Apples, of however fine a quality,  are perishable and require careful handling, therefore are difficult to transport.    Their actual  food value as compared with that  of the gifts from other provinces  is also open to question.    It may  be said that when the bare necessities of   life are likely to  be  scarce, and difficult to transport,  that British Columbia apples are  somewhat of a superfluity.    We  say these   questions are being  already  discussed more or less  widely.  Now if it is foodstuff that will  be most required, then it is wise  to select a class of foodstuff easy  to.transport, not easily damaged,  Naturalization Explained.  Government Issues Circular  to Correct Misunderstandings.  As considerable misunder-  s tan dings have arisen as to the  new Naturalization Act, the state  department is issuing a special  circular on the subject directing  attention to the fact that the new  law is not now in effect, but will  be only on January 1st next,  while with respect to the people  living there at present and up to  the first of the year the old law  will apply for three years yet.  Heretofore naturalization was  granted in court by judges. Under the new law the judges will  certify as to the evidence of  qualifications while the certificate will bo issued by the secretary of state.  Kaiser's Horoscope.  Three years ago L'Echo du  Merveilleux published a horoscope of the German emperor cast  by M. R. Larmier. It was as  follows:  "Wilhelm II, born at Berlin,  Thursday, January 27, 1859. The  conjunction of Saturn, Mars and  Taurus predict the fall of the  house of Hohenzollern and of the  German empire in 1913 or 1914.  Jupiter predicts that Wilhelm II  is the last German emperor of  the house of Hohenzollern. If  there is war in 1914 between  France and Germany, France  will be victorious."  The Japanese Hades.

The pack this year, in northern  waters at least, has been a very  large one.  The most ardent apple grower  will not dispute the nutritive  quality of our coast salmon. Nor  can it be denied that a case of  salmon is less liable to deterioration than a box of apples.  We do not say that British Columbia should not send apples.  Rather do we recognize that they  would be greatly appreciated  around the convalescent wards  of the base hospitals, that is,  those that had not become rotten.  But we do make the suggestion  that twenty-five or thirty thousand cases of fresh canned salmon  would be just as heartily received  and could probably be put to better use and would serve a better  purpose.  This suggestion we respectfully commend to our provincial  government for their earnest  consideration, knowing that  whatever form their contribution  will take it will be offered with  a loyal spirit and in the same  loyal spirit will it be received.  Wreck of Civilization.  Europe has embarked upoii a  struggle so terrible that the  imagination reels in the effort  to think of the horrors it must  bring in its train. It is a war  that may well involve the wreck  of modern civilization and the  collapse of the very foundations  of ordered society as we know  it to day. ��������� Lloyds, London.  Europe always had a great display of ruins to exhibit.  that there are in all 136 hot hells.  Second, there are eight large  cold hells, each with its sixteen  ante-hells, making the same  number of cold that there are of  hot hells. Besides these 272 hot  and cold hells for offenders of  the common sort, the wily Japs  have twenty mammoth "hells of  utter darkness," into which will  be consigned the spirits of children who take the name of Dai  Butsa, or Great Budda, in vain.  This is the way the children  sometimes turn the tables on  their elders.  Lloyd George after distributing prizes at a school  said  he  DISTRICT  OF COAST���������RANGE III.
