This city is an entrenched  camp protected by three series  of works.

In so doing it contributed in a  most effective manner to  securing the left wing of the  French army. It exhibited in  this task, devotion, energy and  perseverance to which I must  now pay my tribute���������qualities  which will be shown again tomorrow and make certain the  triumph of our common cause.

London, Sept. 3.���������Continuous  fighting has   been  in  progress  along almost the whole line of  battle.    The Germans continue  to advance  amazingly,  but the  allied forces are still holding back  enormous masses of the enemy.  At an unnamed spot the 9th Lancers charged with great daring.  The Lancers lost heavily.    Huge  masses    of    German    infantry  threatened to surround the British regiments, delivering bayonet  charges and shooting and yelling.  The  British were compelled to  litterally cut their way through  Allies Plans Well Considered  A telegram from Havre, France,  under date of Sept. 3rd says:  "It can be stated with confidence that the allies are drawing  a net in which the Germans will  be caught and will perish.

Governments do .not supply  their soldiers .with very many  comforts. A kit consists of just  what a soldier wears and no  more. In health he requires but  little, but when disease attacks  him or he suffers injury, the lack  of comforts in hospital lengthens  his disablement or perhaps hastens his death.  The Red Cross Society deals  with the sick and wounded. Its  work is recognized in the armies  of all civilized countries. Since  the Crimean war, when Florence  Nightingale nursed the wounded  British soldiers, the movement  ���������has spread practically all oyer  the world. . As an adjunct to the  modern Army Medical Service  Corps, it provides the medical  and personal comforts which;  military hospitals too often lack.  In Canada the Red Cross Society work is in the hands of a  large committee of leading citizens. They are making active  preparations to carry on their  work in connection with the  Canadian troops. They were a  splendid aid to the Canadians in  South Africa.  Co-operating with the Red  Cross Society, is the St. John  Ambulance Association, whose  function is to organize voluntary  bodies to make or provide the  supplies to be used in the field.  These two organizations have  united their efforts. The one  association will gather the necessities, the other will distribute  them.  With the Canadian troops a  Red Cross Commissioner will go  abroad, and his function will be  to supervise the work of the  society so far as our own men  are concerned.  In South Africa the Red Cross  Commissioner- not only looked  after the hospital supplies and  directed the care of the sick and  wounded Canadians, but he kept  in touch with men in various  hospital camps���������sick with enteric or wounded in battle���������and  informed relatives of their condition from time to time.  Bella Coola is sending its quota  of men to the front. They go to  fight for the very existence of  the British Empire, to preserve  our honor as a protector of the  weak. It is not sufficient that  we should bid them God speed  with a hand-clasp, our duty lies  beyond that.  Bella Coola has already made  a glorious response. The gathering on Saturday last, when a  sum approaching $250 was raised  towards the funds of the Red  Cross Society, shows that those  of us who. are not yet prepared  to volunteer for active service,  are alive to our responsibilities  and mind to shirk them.  , The suggestion contained in  the communication from "Old  Soldier" appearing in this issue  is well worthy the earnest consideration of our local ladies.  The men who go to the front  face not only death or disablement at the hands of the enemy,  they face death or disablement  from disease as well.,  Everyone can help in Red Cross  work;, lOutside the giving of  money there is- the making" of  supplies.  Ladies sewing Circles throughout the valley might do well to  suspend their efforts in other  directions, and lend' all then-  energies to the making of hospital supplies and by so'doing assist  in the work of alleviating the  sufferings of the sick and  wounded.  Veteran's Advice.  Major-General Sir William Otter, the first Canadian to com-  mand the Canadian army, and  now on" the retired list, offers, at  the request of the editor of the  Canadian, Courier, a message to  the Canadian people. General  Otter says,- in part:  "Canada /finds herself in an  entirely new position, and it is  natural -thatithe nation should  wonder just -what is likely to  happen to them in this great international crisis. If I could say  anything to the people which  would be of value at the present  time, it would be to advise them  to be cool and cheerful. The  sports of the nation should go on  as usual; the business activities  of the public should be proceeded  with as far as this may possibly  be done, and above all, measures  should be taken to stimulate the  production- of foodstuffs.  "The people of Great Britain  have a supreme advantage over  us on this occasion.    They have  had experience in great wars  which have tested the courage  and cool-headedness of the British nation. It will be found,  therefor, that they will go about  their pleasures and their business  much the same as usual. They  will be found playing polo and  cricket .and generally keeping  their minds and bodies strong  and healthy. They have supreme  confidence in their public men  and in the virility of the race.  We know that their army and  their navy are well prepared for  'the test to which they will be  subjected. Even reverses, should  they come, will have little effect  upon the attitude of the nation.  Such misfortunes as came in the  South African war merely led  the nation to greater efforts.  That is the characteristic of the  British bull-dog. If we go about  our business and our pleasures  as usual, there will be good cheer  in the land and we shall be better  prepared to meet .any situation  or any crisis.  "With regaTd to business conditions it would be very unfortunate if our factories, our wholesale houses, our railways, our  steamboats, and-our farms were  to be inactive. Above all,' let us  be cool and calm."  The Chief Sufferer.  It will do no harm in these  days of fierce hatred if we remember that their is a German  people outside the military castle.  which has been endeavoring to  make its voice heard on behalf  of peace and which is destined  to be the chief sufferer from the  war.���������Montreal Star.

Many of the leading English  journals are sounding a note of  warning which we in this country  might well give heed to.    The  note of warning is against excessive optimism.    Many of us  are feeling some disappointment  and even surprised that the German navy has not already been  destroyed and the army of the  enemy  crushed.     Our national  pride is apt to lead us to give too  little credit to the enemy.    It  must be remembered that this is  exactly the,situation in  regard  to Germany and Belgium.    Germany      underestimated       the  strength of the resistance likely  to be offered to the passage of  her troops through Belgium.  It would be a serious mistake  to underestimate the strength  of the foe to which Great Britain  and her allies are opposed.  Germany has been preparing  for this war for forty years, and  regardless of what military crit-  is may say of her old-fashioned  tactics, these enormous preparations cannot have been without  result. Through the very fact  of her immense armament she is  prepared to give serious battle,  and her defeat, which none of  us doubt will ultimately be accomplished, will be an extremely  difficult task.  The people of England are not  looking upon  Germany as any  weak antagonist.    Never in the  history of the Empire has Great  Britain made such preparations  for war.   Never has she collected  such an army as Lord Kitchener  is gathering together.    Wellington had only 28,000 troops with  him at Waterloo, while Kitchener  has already mobilized over 600,-  j 000.    The  Napoleonic war cost  Britain $3,000,000,000, considered a tremendous sum, and yet  the British Parliament has voted  $1,000,000,000 for the beginning  only of the expenses of the war.  All cannot be Victory for us  and defeat for the enemy.    Germany is bound to gain some successes, possibly at the beginning  of the war.    We must not, therefore, take too optimistic a view  of the situation and rest assured  in   the   knowledge   that   Great  Britain has always been victor.  We must be prepared to bear up  kingdom.    .  The same sentiment is rife in  Alsace and Lorraine.  For two score years the French  language has been tabooed within the confines of these provinces,  which have yet remained intensely French. All this time these  people have seen all public positions occupied by Ger'maris. For  forty years the children of French  parents have been compelled to  speak German, study German  history and German ideas. During all these years, while their  taxes flowed towards Berlin, the  loyalty of the people of Alsace  and Lorraine to La Belle France  has remained unshaken.  Now comes the long-awaited  liberation. War, the same  powerful agent which formerly  took away may now restore.  Again is seen the Tricolor proudly flying, where for so long has  flown the German flag. Again  the French tongue is heard from  Luxernberg to Switzerland.  Patronize Home Industry  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's recent  speech in the Canadian House of  Commons was the most inspiring  appeal to Britons the world over  as well as the most eloquent and  convincing justification of the  position of Great Britain in the  momentous struggle now proceeding in Europe that has been  uttered since the outbreak of  the war. It probably will be  considered the oratorical masterpiece of his career.  Editor,  Bella Coola Courier.  Sir,���������May I through the medium of your columns offer a  suggestion to the ladies of the  neighboimood: which is, that they  should combine to make and forward to one of the headquarters  of the Red Cross organization a  large supply of surgical bandages for use in the treatment of  the wounded.

Good Cause to Be Pleased.  If any people can be excused  for being really pleased with the  war now waging in Europe, it is  the people of Alsace and Lorraine, and perhaps also the  people of German Poland. In  the present war they see hopes  of being restored to their former  national allegiance. Ever since  Poland was divided between  three European powers the one  great hope of the Polish people  Tia's been that they might some  day regain their national independence. Despite the efforts  of Austria, Germany and Russia,  they have clung resolutely toj  their language and customs, and |  the spirit of independence has j  been fanned to Hume by the ]  present war, in the belief that  with the reconstruction of the  map of Europe they will be able  to realize their hopes of a Polish  sufferings of the wounded.

The garden party which took  place on Saturday last in Bella  Coola town, the proceeds of which  are to be sent to the Red Cross  Society, will be an event long remembered in this locality. Mr.  and Mrs. Brynildsen's d a wn  where the party was held was  tastefully decorated.  Several   prettily   arranged  booths were constructed where  refreshments, flowers and other  things  were   offered   for   sale.  The Norwegian coffee booth was  under the direction of Mrs. B.  F. Jacobsen, with Misses Annie  Levelton and Ellen Thorsen as  assistants, both the latter ladies  being attired in picturesque Norwegian national costumes.    The  Japanese tea garden under the  management of Mrs. T. Draney  and Misses Marjorie Clayton and  Mildred Gibson was another extremely popular resort,- while the  flower and candy booth in charge  of Mesdames  Wm. Sutherland-^  J. R. Morrison and G. Young also  proved a money maker.    One of  the main sources of income was  the   "Old Aunt Sally"   booth,  where for the small fee of ten  cents one could try his prowess  as a marksman with a tennis ball.  For the latter, Mr. Walter Gal-  liene was responsible, the same  gentleman later filling the posi  tion of auctioneer with admirable  success. Towards tho close of  the afternoon's proceedings an  excellent repast was served by  Mesdames Brynildsen and Clayton assisted by other ladies,  which, obviating the necessity  of people going some distance to  their , homes' for dinner, was  greatly responsible, for .the large  audience at; the concert which  followed at eight o'clock in the  Mackenzie School. The program  was of a high order and appropriately patriotic, including items  by Mrs. S. Le C. Grant and Miss  Mabel Hardy (solo pianoforte);  Misses Barwise, Ruth Nordscow  and W.' Pecknold; Messrs. H. G.  Anderson and E. R. A. Russell.  During the evening an appropriate address was delivered by  Mr. W. H. Gibson, the Chairman  of the day, his remarks on many  occasions raising his audience to  a high pitch of enthusiasm.  The entertainment which was  thoroughly enjoyed was brought  to a close with the National Anthem.  The people of Bella Coola are  to be congratulated on the excellent-response to the appeal on  behalf of the Red Cross Society.  The sum raised amounts to approximately $250 which from a  small community is very commendable, and reflects great  credit on those ladies and gentlemen whose untiring energy was  responsible for the admirable  arrangements.  When the War  is Over  WHEN the War is over what motor, car or piano,  for example, will stand highest in public favor?  What cereal? What range or furnace? What brand  of soap, paint, stock food, and so on ? The answer  is: The make or brand that has kept itself constantly in the public eye DURING THE WAR���������by means  of advertisements in the public press.  Selling- courage expresses itself in  publicity. The withdrawal or suspension of advertising is a form of  economy with a "back kick" in it.  Veterans and Heroes are the men  who fight and keep on fighting.
