Official announcements from the
firing line in Belgium and Alsace-
Lorraine this week have been anything But encouraging for the
Allies. The German army has
swept all before it, and, if they, arc
successful - in the second battle
now being fought between Mau-
beuge,. (Department of Norde),
and Donon, (Department of Doubs)
the fate of France is sealed.
On this battle, says an official
dispatch from Pans, "hangs tlie
fate -of France. Operations in
Alsace and along the Rhine would,
take ' away troops upon which
might depend victory. It is necessary that-they all withdraw from,
Alsace temporarily to_ ��������� insure " its
final deliverance. It is a matter of
hard necessity.",    l ,   '"
** .The  War  Office' on  Wednesday
morning, announced -that the Commander-in-Chief, requiring all the

there,will be a Brit*'; 1 army in the

quality will not be unworthy of-the
power and responsibility of the.

that there would possibly be forty
divisions, making 860,000 men.
On Aug. 25th the .War Ollice announced that ��������� the" city of Namur
had fallen into the hands of the
Germans. , Commenting on this'
bit of bad news the London Times
said: "Namur has fallen. This,
_in the words of the official communication, necessitates the withdrawal of a portipn of the Allied
troops from the line of the Sambrc
to their original defensive position
on the French :"frontier." The
Times adds, that the fall of Namur
after only two days' fighting "is'

Jack Newby was treated to an
embarassing experience when attempting" to-cross the-line on his
wav to Seattle last week. He was
slopped by the immigration officials and placed in thc detention
building along with 30 or more

talk English, where he was held
for three hours. He was finally
released, but was not allowed to go

W. J. -Woods and the Poison,
Murrin & Speers mercantile-company- made a deal this week where-
bv Mr. Woods takes over the gents'
furnishings and boots and shoes
of the latter company, and Poison,
Murrin & Speers take the slock of
dry goods and ladies' and children's wear carried by Mr. Woods.
The exchange is considered to be
of mutual advantage. Mr. Woods
was going out of the dry goods
and getting into gents' furnishings,
while Messrs. Poison, Murrin &
Speers were taking up more fully,
Ihe dry/' goods and ladies' wear.
Both firms intend to develop these
respective lines to the fullest ex-
lent compatible, with business conditions.

(he latter's house a few days ag.;
In a despatch from 'London M-\
Straus is reported as saying he
was greatly imrressed,<not only by'
���������.he dispassionak: viewpoint of 'he
British secretary for foreign affairs,
but also by his deep sense of responsibility andhis high-moral purpose. Sir Edward emphasized thc
reasons which compelled Great Britain lo engage in thc conflict. He
said thc principle al stake is nol
simply the maintenance of Britain's
obligations under solemn treaties lo
stand by her'engagements in respect
to Belgium and her neutrality,'but
far beyond that to uphold the sanc-
tily of : treaties,' as'-'otherwise, regardless of the issues of the war,
the result would be a reversion of
all nations, to a condition of international  barbarism.
The consideration, Sir Edward
pointed out, concerns not only the
belligerent nations, bul all nations
as well, and the result would be lhal
no international engagements could
he. entered into in future because
there would be no moral force to
uphold them and ensurc.^'their observance. 7
"Had Great Britain," he continued, "for her own selfish purposes,
expressly or implicitly accepted
Germany's terms and allowed her
treaty obligations lo be torn to
pieces as so much waste paper, thc
moral damage lo the civilized world
would have been incalculable."

We have  illimitable timber resources, and there is much new  business waiting for us, apparently' if we will but  bestir ourselves and go after it.  "Another matter. The greater part of Vancouver  Island, to mention only one section of the' Province,  is splendidly adapted for sheep-grazing. Why we are  doing practically nothing in that line simply passes  comprehension. In Oregon and Washington ..millions'  of head of sheep are grazing on land not one whit  more suitable for the purpose than our own country.

AUGUST 27, 1914  GET TOGETHER AND PULL  Just now there Is a tendency to ignore possibilities and allow things* to "slide." II' ell'orl is required lo get a thing done, war conditions arc  taken as an excuse for the effort not being made  and thai which ought lo be accomplished is not  accomplished, and all are made lo suffer lhc consequences thereof. In community, life, there is a  tendency to slop all progress, and let things "go  lo thc devil." ������������������ .'.  This is bad. Now, more than at any other lime,  (here is need of combined effort,"a long pull, a  steady pull and a pull ailogclhcr. So far as lhis  community is concerned, wc nuisl forget as far  as possible the fact that a world war is on, and  each individual lend a hand to make local, conditions belter for his neighbor, and in so doing aid  in making them better for himself. We cannot  aid materially in talking war or living the war  lhat now holds Europe enthralled, bul we can do  a very great deal in aiding in the development of  this community's industries and advantages.  Perhaps now the opportunities arc better than  Ihcy ever have been; perhaps, if wc but could sec  il, (here are chances opening for us thai were nol  open before; perhaps thc markets will open in a  larger way than they ever have been opened for  lhe commodities we can best produce. However  __lhis_may_bc, wc cannot.go.J'ar_eslray, by ..making  ready for larger things  The fuller development of every piece of land  now under,cultivation, lhc sounder basis we can  gel upon in the handling of the produce of the  district, lhc fuller we can develop the district's  resources, all will lend to bring us to a position  where we may not only assist in the general desire to uphold lhe integrity of thc community,  bul, at the same lime, make conditions belter for  ^ourselves as individuals. ~~���������������������������.,������������������������������������������������������ ������������������������������������������������������ ^ .-.������������������������������������������������������^  Times arc going lo be good this winter���������������������������if we  make Them good. Thc war cannot lake from us  anything good unless we lose heart and lose sight  of lhe advantages lhat are our's. We have thc  best lhal Nature can give; we are unmolested; we  are given opportunities lhal few communities can  boast of. What are we going lo do wilh lhe opportunities lhal tire our's?  In this connection, the following words of Mr.  II. B. Thomson, M. P. P., in the Victoria Colonist,  should he given careful consideration:  "Very shortly, if'-hol now, lhe whole world will be  clamoring for more food, and thc present source of  supply will be diverted. For instance, New Zealand  ;\nd 1.astern Canada will be looked to lo, fill the English  wauls in place of the Netherlands for butter and eggs,  and what British Columbia has had in Ihe past from'  these places will have lo be supplied locally. We have  in the great variety of fish which swarm about our  shores a prime article of diet. Il may be said lhal  those in lhe fishing business will be quick to realize  their opportunities and lake advantage of lhe present  situation. Well, Ihey should be encouraged to do so.  The mailer is one of great importance, in my judgment.  Then lake the question of lumber. The war has disrupted trade routes in Kurope by which much of the  lumber obtained from territory fronting on the Bailie,  which  is  England's main  source of supply,  reached  A valued friend writes: "Editors and teachers  and preachers need, in these days, to keep thc  people fro in panic, and the panic of enthusiasm is  as bad as thc panic of deep pessimism. The thing  to do in these days of turmoil and change, is to  ' cep cool and keep steady, working on at the business we have in hand, that we may be found ready  "or every emergency.  "To my mind lhis war is hard to reconcile with  a 'Christian' civilization, and the historians of  thc future will look for some one on whom to put  the blame for lhc whole sad business. In our  heal and anger wc pul the blame on Berlin and  lhc Kaiser, bul perhaps there will be others involved when the true history is written. In the  meantime avc cannot but be proud of lhe way the  British people have risen to the occasion and have  responded to the call made upon them. The  'conspiracy of silence' is one of the most remarkable things in warfare's long history, and it all  seems to be inspired by the silent man at thc head  of thc war department in England."  Our friend, wc believe, is quite right.   When  history is written of this war, the blame for it will  no. doubt be placed where it belongs, though wc  like now lo believe that the Kaiser of Germany is  responsible.     And   wc   think,   when history is  written of this war we shall know as little about  it as we know now._.' Not that thc instrument  through whom the war was thrust upon thc world  shall not be made known." lie shall be.   His name  and title will depend   upon   the   nationality of  the man writing thc history.   But, after all, he  will be only humanity's scape-goat:   .The.real  cause of the war is humanity itself.   For some  thousands of years wc have been living in an atmosphere of destructive thought, building up to  destroy or be destroyed.    Civilization's teaching  has been that one nation's strength is dependable  upon another nation's destruction; thai one nation  adds lo its greatness in the measure that it can  keep another nation down; that the goodness of  one individual becomes greater in the measure  that another individual's goodness is dimmed.  As individuals wc havc-prayed for peace while as  nations wc have prepared and pined for war; we  have la ugh I Christ in thc individual and Mars in  thc nation.

Conditions Which Forced Russia to
Institute the First War Movement
[The following article is from the pen
of Samuel N. Harper, who has specialized on Russia for some years, occupying chairs at various universities, with*
the Slav nation and its history as his
subject. Mr. Harper's knowledge is
based not only on research, but upon
residence and personal observation in
the land of the Czar.]
On one point there has been remarkable unanimity^ of public
opinion in Russia these last years.
The many defeats Russian diplomacy has suffered at the hands
of Austria have created a widespread feeling of chagrin and resentment. ���������      '
.'Russians were deeply hurt by
tlie utter failure of their government's protest against the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. '..--- -
Again Russia'was defeated' in
her advocacy of Servia's plea for
a seaport. . ' . '" :->
Dissatisfaction was openly and
emphatically expressed; on .its"
foreign as well as. its' internal
policy the government was being
.criticized and opposed by groups
and parties that had given-'it
loyal support.   ��������� .'7c
Further,' a most generally ac:
cepted tradition in Russia is. that
of.her mission as protector of the
smaller Slav states.".'-Servia -has'attention:tp it,
The government, it was contended, would surely have to face a
revolution at home in, event of a
foreign war. This, it would
seem,.was responsible for the
weak protest when Austria took
steps which Russia properly
might resent. Panslavism, even
in its modest form of a purely
cultural movement, was laughed
at and ridiculed; the leading Slav
state-was in no position to give
it any meaning. -
This has been the tone of the
German press for some time.
- A few months ago ahother line
was taken. \ A "signed arcticle by
its St. Petersburg correspondent
was printed, in a leading and
semi-official .German paper. .It
reported preparationsinprogress
in Russia for an aggressive military policy-; against Germany.
The arcticle started an anti-Russian newspaper campaign in Germany and Austria. The Russian
nationalist papers took up - the
challenge and responded in a-jhy
goistic tone. But rr criminations
we're limited to.newspaper articles. It was denied that there
was any official' inspiration for
the.article that started the campaign in Germany..   ,        -' ."'

This aroused much protest. The

groups of the Russian public,
who before had hesitated to show

who had supported the old regime, and were trying to procure

Purely economic questions came
in here. The Germans have

there isah entirely-different interpretation bf this point.

unequivocal proof ot its dissatisfaction* with .the timid ineffectiveness of its diplomacy, 7.during
these last years," when--' the near
eastern '.question has again come

Just as frankly has it complained of the short-sighted,and inefficient administration of home affairs by the present government.
There never has;; been such a
general and clearly sensed feeling of discontent as has shown
itself in the last year. In August, 19J.3, an important group of
business-men,- assembled-in- Congress at the annualjNizhny-Nov-
gorod fair, passed a set of resolutions. They condemned the policy of general repression which
still continues, though all the revolutionary organizations have
been effectively stamped out.
They pointed out the injury to
business resulting from these repressive measures.' They appealed for the actual realization
of the provisions of the manifesto
of 1905, in which the sovereign
had promised political and civil
rights.   These have in faet not
more frequently, and each" time
embracing larger " numbers of
workmen. .The strikes have Had
a peculiar character. Frequently
no demands were made for -increase of wages, or shorter hours,
or better conditions of work;
they were purely political strikes."
In St. Petersburg they were called
off almost immediately; they
would seem to have been merely
rehearsals. i ���������   ��������� ��������� ,

This also was resented % by7 the
Russian public.
For some months the German
and Austrian newspapers have
been telling us much about the
internal political situation in Russia. They have found many in-
���������dications of popular discontent
and unrest and have taken much
pleasure in emphasizing them.
They pointed out the important
relations between Russia's home
situation and her foreign policies.

now exist only on paper.
, A few months later there was
a congress of workers in municipal affairs. The mayors of Russia's largest cities were present.
Resolutions of a political nature
were passed. Again they voiced
an appeal that the imperial promises of 1905 be carried out.
The ritual murder trial in Kiev
last autumn greatly stirred Russian public opinion. Many who
had hitherto supported tha  gov-
week was assuming serious proportions. It was intimated that
the rehearsals were over.. The
severest measures were, being
taken to suppress it; there were
conflicts between workmen', and
the military, rioting and violence.
Last February Baron. Rosen,
formerly Russian ambassador to
America, made a speech in - the
Russian upper house, of which
he is now a member. His statement caused much comment,
both in Russia and. abroad. "He
had never been suspected of radicalism, but he read a severe ��������� indictment of the government and
its policies in bqth home and foreign matters. He was unsparing
in his criticism of the, members
of the government; justly-/characterizing the dillotante performances of the present minister
of the interior,  h   y.
. Thus the statements appearing
in the German and Austrian
press on the discontent andv unrest in Russia are well grounded.
lation of this state of public opinion in Russia to Russia's foreign
policy was wrong.   .
The discontent is in a certain
measure due to the constant concessions made by Russian diplomacy to Austrian and German
And there has developed a

tion.t  In,the-situation which con-y
fronts the-. Russian government /
today, the'attitude of the  Rusr'
sian public has already'1 revealed
itself, and it will be different.
The Russian government's rde-.
finite standagainst the ..Austrian y
attack on Servia had to/be taken,.
irrespective of consequences, and
in a large measure because bf the
internal situation which confronted it. "-    7 y - /
. 'ThereJias followed an immediate response^ from "tKe__Russian_
public.   The anti-German  sentiment, which has  been  growing
apace* these  last  months,   expressed itself with vigor and enthusiasm ; there was a corresponding anti-Russian demonstration
reported from Berlin.
It is not; however, a question
merely of the-'rehabllitation of -a-
government that had realized at
last the extent of its unpopularity. That may have been a consideration in the mind of the
authority that has shown itself
such a poor interpreter of Russian public opinion and inefficient
director of home affairs and foreign policy. The personality of
the emperor is an important factor. Since the assassination of
Stolypin, his last strong and energetic prime minister, he has
assumed the actual direction of
affairs and the responsibility of
government himself. But this
is a point that can properly be
developed only in considerable
detail.      '.'

It is cheaper to save  men. It is cheaper to stop killing. In our own country, in thc  time of peace,-when nothing but  peace is possible among civilized  nations, we spend nearly a million dollars a day on matters  concerned with past or future  wars; $850,000 a day, on future  wars alone, that we may not be  caught napping when the day, of  the impossible shall arrive.",  What Dr. David Starr Jordan  thought was impossible has acr  tually arrived..

They fight also for native land.  For native land! When has the  world seen such irony? Not one  in ten of these fighting men  owns so much as a single square  foot of his native land. In country andPin city he toils from  childhood "to old age for a bare  piltancc;:on.'tlic'land of a sumptuously-faring lord or prince.  "And.,when he has given thc  last full measure of devotion,  and lies prone upon thc ground,  smitten by the hand of another  who is fighting of his God, king  and native land, and his last  thought goes back to thc hovel  he called home, and he sees in  his mind's eye his wife staggering under the double, burden,  and his aged mother in tear's, as  she rocks the cradle of his orphaned child, he murmurs to  himself: 'For God���������������������������king���������������������������and  ���������������������������native-land.'  "Whose is the fault? Why  do' -men. who love women and  fondle children, who care for  the sick and revere the aged,  why do they suddenly fall to  killing other men- like themselves, whose only crime is that  they speak a different language,  or live on the other side of an  imaginary line?

Have  they taught them that it is more  blessed to give than to receive?  Have they admonished them  when smitten-on one check to  turn the other also? Have they  admonished them to resist not  evil, but overcome _cvil_ with  good?  "Alas, all these things have  they said wilh their lips,, bul denied -with their hearts. Though  extolling lhc blessings of peace  Ihey have raised no voice  against thc creation ' of great  armies and navies, whose only  purpose, is the 'destruction of  other Christians. Nay, they  have7accompanied" every ���������������������������regiment''and every ship! that has  gone forth to battle, praying to  a common God that they may  have victory over their Christian brethren. Men have been  excommunicated and driven  from the. church for denying an  article of faith, or questioning  a point of doctrine; but when  was a Christian ever driven  from his church for warring  upon his fellow Christians?  "The responsibility resting  upon captains oi* industry and  upon statesmen and. landlords is  great, for they have held places  of authority; but the responsibilities that rest upon churchmen transcends all others  to whom much has been* given  much will be required in return;  and those whose eyes have been  opened to spiritual truths must  be held to a strict accounting if  they quicken not the spiritual  life of their fellows. Who can  doubt that had every Christian  priest and minister condemned  war as ihcy preach against hell;  had they denounced wholesale  murder as they condemn individual murder, war long ago  would have ceased. The ministers of God have not discharged  their obligations when they have  prayed for peace, nor yet when  they have denounced war; they  must condemn thc individual  men who commit wholesale  murder.,  "Yet, why do these men,  though encouraged by priest and  minister, destroy one another?  God and king and native land  are. mere words���������������������������vain, empty  words, when used as an excuse  for slaying human beings. Is  there one single principle at  stake in this war?

In view of the events taking place  in I.urope, says the Financial Post,'  which will constitute an epoch of  perhaps unprecedented importance  in history, we appeal strongly to all  who hold securities or investments  of any kind lo meet the present situation wilh calmness and confidence. Our first duty, at any cost,  is to aid in Great Britain's sustenance and defense, and our next duly  ���������������������������"not less important, is to keep the  business of lhe Dominion moving  as normally as possible.  "Let it be remembered thai while  we must lay aside something to  pay our shave of the cost of the war,  wc have al our back storehouses of  natural wealth scarcely yel touched.  As the calamities of Europe place a  higher value on our wheal and  other exportable crops, so will the  same calamities���������������������������the result of militarism and conscription���������������������������make the  peaceful land of Canada more attractive to some of the best people  of Europe whose hopes and lands,  generation after generation, have  been dispoilcd or devastated by  war. Al thc present instant Canada  stands practically immune from the  physical menace of war; our fields  are giving their-wealth to the harvester, and our other resources are  yielding their bounty in greater  profusion than ever. Wealth production is proceeding, and the opportunities for still greater primary  production are not diminishing.  This continent, including Canada,  will profit, largely and speedily by  thc changes in the world's currents  of trade during the war. Many of  our factories will find demands upon them stimulated because of restriction placed upon lhc productive machinery of Europe by lhe  exigencies of war, and,' though for  a lime in diminished quantities, a  fair proportion of Britain's available capital will come lo Canada for  investment. .Under the circumstances, therefore,'-the one great  essential lo keep business moving  is confidence, and Canada, probably of all nations of the world, has  least excuse lo offer for any lack  of it.  "In the unprecedented and critical situation lhat exists," says Sir  Geo. Paish, "il is of thc greatest importance that everyone should endeavor to acl as if great events were  nol pending. Were confidence seriously disturbed, business would  come practically to an end, and our  ability to face the dilliculties that  may be in front of us would be  seriously impaired. Therefore, il  U Qj.yJti'1 importanceLJhat, as far as  der thai individual incomes, and  therefore thc income of the whole  nation, may be maintained al the  highest possible level.  "A little over a century ago, when  the nation was al war wilh Napoleon, ils income was very small,  being less than one-eighth of whal  it is at present, and in a comparatively small space of lime lhe British people succeeded in raising  about ������������������1,000,000,000 of money for  war purposes, and so great was  their confidence and courage lhal  al the end of the great war, which  severely taxed their resources, they  were stronger' and, wealthier than  they had been at lhe beginning."  Canada's natural store is as yet  barely touched. From any temporary lull in our progress, from  whatever cause,- we can, therefore,  recover ourselves more quickly  than did the Motherland after her  world struggle of a century ago, if  our people are of the same heart  and industry, and wc are confident  they are. Courage in the fight for  the Empire is not more necessary  than courage in the maintenance of  the industry and commerce of the  country.  DODGING  THE KIEL CANAL  At present thc most notable canal  in the world is not the Suez, nor the  Soo; not even Panama, about which  thc world has been talking for  years. It is the Kiel Canal, which,  wilh the naval arsenal and  war port of Kiel, is headquarters  for the German navy. For war  purposes this is the most strategic  canal ever built. Kiel City is the  chief naval port of Germany in the  Baltic. Kiel Harbor is the'one spot  on-the map that supremely -makes  Germany a naval power. The' Kiel  Canal, connecting Kiel on the Baltic  wilh Brunsbuttel at the "mouth of  the Elbe, in the North Sea, is the  strategic base of thcJ German fleet.  .When the newspapers state that the  German fleet is^bottlcd up in Kiel,  what they really'mean is that for as  long as it suits Germany's purpose,  the German lleet is bottled up there  on purpose to keep the British fleet  guessing as lo which route il intends to take to get to the open se<������������������  The distance from one mouth of  the canal to the other round by  the Cattegat on the north end of  Denmark is a good day's run for a  warship. By the shortcut of the  canal, with its huge locks, 1,082  feel long, with a mean depth of 45  feel, the distance for the German  l.lfic\U._Lg������������������]y-_-J'g^  land. So long as the German fleet  is bottled up in Kiel it is safe. If  by means of the two-mouthed canal  part of it manages to escape while  he British fleet is hovering near the  other exit, thc waiting game will be  over and there will be enough of  the German ships on the high seas  to menace our shipping.  Al present the Admiralty is hoping for an open-sea engagement as  soon as possible. When it conies,  if il comes big enough, there will  nol be enough of lhe German fleet  left to pay for the cost of thc Kiel  Canal.  Kiel is the most dangerous spot in  Europe al the present time. It is  all the more dangerous because  Heligoland, the. island ceded by  Lord Salisbury lo Germany in 1890,  forms with ils fortification and its  coaling station a third angle' to the  astute naval triangle in the Baltic  and the North Sea.���������������������������Canadian  Courier.  .
