Baron Alvo von Alvensleben,. a well  known (in Vancouver, brings ������s "tidings straight  from the Kaiser's bosom. He says amongst of her  things "that no man in Europe regrets the war  more than the "Kaiser." We believe it absolutely  now that German commerce on sea and land has  been completely destroyed���������the , German rufeh  halted -by the tiny kingdom of Belgium .and the  flower of his advance guard more, than decimated  including the grievous wounding of his son and  heir, the death of Prince Frederic William and  of General Von Emmig before Liege.  There' will be great appearance pf official rejoicing over the entrance into Brussels of the German troops���������but it is at best.an empty, victory for  the city was not defended?���������the "guard civique"  disarmed and the inhabitants warned to keep in  .doors or go about their business as usual and keep  decent behavior towards -the Germans until such  time as the raid is overpast. .'������*-'  The Belgium army has retreated on Antwerp,  and will' give a good account pf itself beyond a  doubt.     , ��������� - -..'),  Antwerp is perhaps the most heavily fortified ���������  city in trie world, and it is estimated that it will ���������  -take an army of 500,000 men to thoroughly invest  it and a year at least to take it by siege, providing  that it is or can be provisioned.. "--. ^ .  Antwerp's surroundings can' be flooded for a  radius of 22 miles, and without' breaking the neutrality of Holland, which would be a' fatal blow  to German arms, the German advance' haV now,  reached ita limits���������unless it can break through  the Allies' front,* by T;liis time thoroughly entrenched. J \  But we have still another Source of German  information. Max Annenberg, -the circulation  manager 6f the Chicago Tribune, has also been  in the Kaiser's confidence.. He tells us that on  Sunday the war will end. By Sunday, the 23rd  of August, France will be defeated and Britain1  sue for peace with Russia not even in the fighting  yet. Moreover he informs us that in Berlin the  British army is held to be a negligible quantity���������  not nearly as efficient as that of the United  States, composed of mere boys and at that raw recruits. Berlin admits, according to Max" Annenberg, that Britain has a Marge navyv���������perhaps a  great navy���������but still absolutely untried, andin  any case Germany does not have to fight Britain  on the sea! On land she makes no difference.  Poor Kitchener!   Has it come to this?  By the way where is the British contingent?  The German "turning movement" is"now considerably extended and by the advance on Brussels  and its occupation we believe weakened if not endangered.  Namur, Liege and Antwerp as fortresses, are  still intact, and after all these 3 weeks hard  fighting and constant slaughter of German troops,  by driving them in "massed" assaults against  modern forts and entrenchments the main German advance cannot be said to be one foot nearer  Paris than on 1st of August, and if-we are right  in our conjecture as to where the British'cpntihg-  ent is theremay be a sad sunrise in store for.  Kaiser Wilhelm's commander. ";    - v :  '������������������ One thing is certain. The great, long planned  and threatened "German rush" is blocked, and  with French and British troops united in front,  the Belgian army and line of unsubdued forts in  the German rear, the Allies have every reason for  considering the present position "satisfactory."  Russia is already moving and within 10 days  from date this movement will become an avalanche. We feel sure the information from Berlin  brougBt~"to us by Messrs.

At this time when Britain's naval and  land forces have been thrown into the struggle to  preserve the world's liberties his words will come  with renewed force. Victor Hugo said in his  book '' Les Miserables ":���������  "Over that sea in calm majesty lies the proud  isle whose existence consoles me for a thousand  continuous crimes, and vindicates for me the processes of Providence. Yes, proud Britain, thou  art justly proud of thy colossal strength���������most  justly of thy prpudlike repose. Stretched upon  the rock, but not like Prometheus, and no evil  fiend to rend thy side, rests the genius of Britain.   He waits hi ��������� hour, but couhts^not the hours  between.' He knows that it is rolling up through  the mystic gloom of ages, and that its chariot is  guided by the iron hand of destiny. It will come,  it is coming, it has^ come. The whole world,  aroused as by some mighty galvanism, suddenly  raises a wild cry of love and admiration, and  throws itself into the bounteous bosom of Britain.  "Henceforth there are no nations, no people,  but one; undividable will be the world, and the  world will be one Britain. Her virtue and her  patience have triumphed. The lamp of her faith,  kindled at the apostolic altars, burns as a beacon  to mankind. Her example, has regenerated the erring, her mildness has rebuked the rebellious, and  her gentleness has enchanted the good. Her type  and her temple shall be the mecca and'the Jerusalem of a renewed universe."  From Ottawa  -.���������.'���������������������������;!���������'������������������'. ;i Ottawa Aug. 19.  The Western Call,  ' Vancouver, B. C. e  The debate on the reply to the speech from: the  Throne occupied just-two hours, consisting of four  speeches, including those of Sir Robert L. Borden  and Sir Wilfrid Laurier. There was not. a discordant note throughout the proceedings, but a wholehearted concurrence in all'that the Government  had done. Sir Wilfrid was in splendid form and  made a most eloquent speech full of graceful references. ��������� Sir Robert. Borden spoke at some length,  giving a summary of the whole situation, making  special reference to the work done on the Pacific  Coast by Naval Volunteers, and of the gallant  action of Commander Hose. He also stated that  sidtable provision would be made for the families  of those going to the front.' A new point was that  as far back as last January Sir Robert had, with  great foresight, apointed a special commission to  devise a scheme of co-operation with the Motherland in case of emergency so that when the emergency came the Canadian Government was ready  and to his statesmanship is largely due the prac  tical and efficient manner in which the situation  has been handled., The House will likely sat only  for one week,  H.

ISSUED  } ITEMS OF PRESENT INTEREST!  t * *  GERMANS   DID   NOT  WANT TO GO TO  WAR  Victoria    Ladies    in    Carlsbad    Say  at Prospect.  A letter written by a Victoria woman in Carlsbad, Germany, on July 29,  contains much interesting information  about the war preparations in that  country. Mrs. Winters ' and Miss  Couves, sister and niece of Stephen  Jones, of the Dominion hotel, were  touring in Germany when the war  broke out, and in the letter of July  29 they state that they were'given  until the following day to leave the  country. The trains were to be taken  over by the War Department the next  day and they were going to leave on  the last train. There were many  Americans at Carlsbad also who intended to come out on the last train.  The war crisis arose in Germany  almost as suddenly as here, it appears' but how secret the preparations were may be gathered, from the  fact that the letter describes the soldiers as leaving for t&e front hourly.  The women and children were working in the fields, in the city and everywhere. From this it is'evident that  the men. had been away-for two or  three days, and it will be remembered  that Austria's declaration of war was  made only on July 28.  Another striking comment which has  been borne out by later dispatches  was to the effect that the Germans  seemed to have no enthusiasm for the  war. The people could not understand  what they. were fighting ahout, and  did not want to fight. The scenes of  weeping at the railway depots as the  men went away were vividly ' described in the letter which said that  the atmosphere of the. German people  was one of deep depression. There  was an entire absence of the cheering and enthusiasm which always  mark the departure of .British troops  for the front.  It was some days after this before  Germany and Russia came to grips,  so that the chances are that"'the Victoria . women succeeded' in making  their way out of Germany before the  war actually broke out. It will'be remembered that the dispatches of  about that date stated that so many  people had put off their departure to  the last train that some were left at  the depots. The chances are,- however, that if they missed this train  they would succeed in getting on the  train that took so many British people  to Denmark on August 4.

LONDON, Aug. lo.���������A dispatch to  Reuter's Telegraph company from St.  Petersburg says that Grand Duke  Nicholas, commander-in-chief of the  Russian army, has addressed a manifesto to Poland, appealing for the loyalty of the Poles and promising them  autonomy in return. The manifesto  reads: "The hour has sounded when  the sacred dream of your fathers may  be realized. A hundred and fifty years  ago the living body of Poland' was  torn to pieces, but Tier souls survived  and she lived in hope that for the  Polish people would come an hour of  regeneration and reconciliation with  Russia.  "The Russian army brings you the  solemn news of this reconciliation  which effaces the frontiers, severing  the Polish people whom it unites conjointly under the sceptre of the Czar  of Russia Under this sceptre Poland  will be born again, free in'her religion and her language and autonomous.  "Russia expects from you only* the  loyalty to which history has bound  you. With open heart and a brotherly  hand extended/great Russia comes to  meet you. She believes that the sword  which struck here enemies at Green-  wald is not yet rusted.  "Russia from the shores of the Pacific ocean to the North Sea marches  in arms. The dawn of a new life commences for you. . In this glorious  dawn is seen the Sign of the Cross���������  the symbol of suffering and the resurrection of a people."   *���������  HIDE AND SEEK WITH THE CRUISERS  AH tricks known to seafaring men  are/ being brought into play by the  masters of deep sea vessels when at  sea to outdo the cruisers of other nations which are trying to round up  all the mercantile tonnage possible.  An interesting story come over the  cable from Honolulu telling how- Capt.  J. T. Rolls, master of the Canadian-  Australian liner Niagara, reached that  port from Victoria. He took several  steps to offset the efforts of/any of  the enemies' ships which might be  hovering about. -  The usual course pursued between  Cape Flattery and the Honolulu heads  was forsaken, the ship ran without  lights and instead of steaming into  the Hawaiian port as soon as be was  in that latitude, Capt. Rolls steamed  tbe Niagara around the Island of  Oahu, on which Honolulu is situated.  Nothing was seen of any German  ships.      ' -  ���������Uft Here Late.  The Niagara Bailed from Victoria' at  5 o'clock, on Friday morning, August 7,  and at that time the latest word received oftbe German cruiser Nuernberg was that she was off the Midway Island and probably prowling on  the course' of; the Canadian-Australian  ships.' f he big red-stacker was held  b"ere������ two days before her owners  would-concent tocher departure. She  did not lose any .time en route, but  picked up one day." The Niagara was  driven^ hard without lights, as Capt.  Rolls was uhable -to get information  from British.Columbia coast stations  or Honolulu as to the whereabouts of  any German - shipB, and .he-was not  taking any chances of losing such a  From the eastern shore of the Cas  pian Sea a little railroad runs away  to the east through Turkestan, with  a branch  to the border of Afghani- * valuable ship.  stan.    From the eastern terminus, of S    According, to the latest reports the  this little railroad, says a writer in  Niagara with the steamship Marama,  In any discussion of the. protection of. bird life in Canada, considerable opposition .has always been  manifested by the agricultural interests. It is claimed that birds are responsible for, great damage to maturing fruits, berries, tomatoes, etc.,  an<J, earlier in the season, to the seed  planted in the ground. This is true  to, a certain extent. But, as in the  study of ^py subject, there are two  sides to the bird protection question.  The damage to the fruit is visible to  the eye of the grower, and he consequently waxes wroth.  The other side of the subject is one  with which the agriculturist is less  familiar. Could the birds place their  daily food before those: .hostileV to  them, it would ��������� readily': be seen to  what, extent', t^iey. serve "ithe interests  of those who are" dependent upon the  products of the soil.  r t  An analysis of the contents of the  stomachsVof thousands of birds has  shown that 90 per cent, of the food  consisted of insects and 10 per cent,  of vegetable- matter. Upwards of 5,-  000 insects ha,ve been found in the  stomach of one bird. It has been  estimated "that the destruction by insects in Canada amounts to approximately fifty million dollars annually.  Last year the tent caterpillar was  very prevalent; this year the army  worm has made its appearance and is  causing great loss to the farmers in  certain sections. It is known. that,  with the decrease in the number o(  birds which annually reach Canada  in the spring, there'has been a constant increase in the destruction by  insects. It has also been stated that,  if all bird life were destroyed, seven  years would see the end of vea^ta-  tion in' Canada. This has been ������������������'���������e  reason for an active campaign for the.  protection of bir'ds'. The United  States Congress has passed an act  for the protection of migratory birds,  and interested parties are bringing  the matter before the attention of  the Canadian government.  Apart altogether ffom the practical view of bird life, there is the sentimental side. What would- Canada  be like without our feathered fri-.nds?  If we could no longer look forward to  the arrival ,pf the first sprint* robin,  or ofr the -wren, of the wild, canary,  something > Would be ' missing i'r������m  our lives whffih we couldnot' replace  This is a subject which should engage the attention of school tcards  and teachers. The pupils should be  taught to protect our feathered frit nds  and their nests. The BoyScout movement has taken up the protection of  bird life and in their hands ?ood work  is being done.

McKay Station, Burnaby  -the World's Work, there Is a gap of  several thousand miles across most of  Turkestan and the Chinese Empire,  in which there is not a mile of railroad either east, west, north or south.  In area that region is greater, than  the United States. In population it  far outweighs this country. Some  day, no doubt, a great trunk line will  be built through it as part of the new  Chinese.and Russian system of Asiatic roads.   -  Thas is, however, too big a project  for an individual in the world to  grasp. What is more, it seems to be  a settled" fact that, on account of the  mixed political relationships and the  strong, international jealousies of  European and Asiatic countries, there  is no room for private enterprise to  seize the great opportunities for railroad exploitation -and development  with lines in these unoccupied spaces  of Asia. When the transasiatic.trunk  line of the south is able to eompete  with the transiberian between the  markets of Europe and the "rnarkets  of China and the rest of the Orient  it will undoubtedly be built under governmental auspices. .  i      '  It remains for the future to tell  whether the men that plan it and  build it are subjects of the Czar,- subjects of Germany, or of Great Britain:  or citizens of the Chinese Republic or  Empire. That task, splendid and fascinating as it is, seems to be set alt  together outside the field of individual ambition and endeavor.

Calgary, Alta.���������In answer to the  suggestion that oil development in  Southern Alberta will be suspended,  during the European turmoil, it is  pointed out that a large number of  companies had practically completed  their financial arrangements before  the war started, and that the 75 or  more wells now certain to be drilled  should fully demonstrate the possibilities of the Calgary field. Brokers  are of the opinion that the sacrifice  of good oil stocks owiijg to the war  is uncalled for. One of them says:  "Alberta will keep on raising wheat  and beef and hogs, and drilling for  oil, and because of her productiveness  will not feel the hard times that are  certain to come to the countries  whose trade will be,affected."  In the meantime, Ralph Johnson,  the noted California 'oil expert and  pioneer oil king, 4s reported to be  closing out his interests in the California fields with the intention of  moving to .Calgary.

IRELAND'S GREEN  FLAG  HEADS ORANGE  PARADE  LONDON, Ont, Aug. 12.���������Pledges  of unswerving loyalty to the British  Throne in the present European  crisis, and of the readiness of Orangemen to go to the front to assist Britain in, as Mayor Hocken of Toronto  put it, her "battle against despotism  for the rights of mankind," characterized the .speeches here today in connection with the celebration of the  relief of Derry, , an innovation in  Orange circles in Ontario, which was  participated in by more than. 2000  members of the Black Knights of Ireland from all parts of Western Ontario, including 300  from  Toronto.  The speakers included Mayor Hocken, Toronto; Mayor Graham, E. T.  Essery, K.C.; Itev. W. C. Riddiford  Grand Master Sir Knight Lankin of  Toronto; Canon Walsh, Brampton;  Rev. R. W. Knowles, St. Thomas,  and Lieut.-Col.'

Almost everywhere, the efforts at  forest fire protection are concentrated' '^pon- the remaining areas of  merchantable timber, while the cut-  over lands are, for the most part, neglected. As a natural result, the. fu-  tureV forest revejiues_of the several  provinces are seriously jeoparized,  since it is inevitable that the financial returns from the-cutting of virgin  timber must decrease through the  gradual exhaustion of these supplies,  leaving the balance to be secured from  operations on lands previously cut  over.. Not only will there be loss in  prospective stumpage dues but in  ground rent also.

Germany and Austria are both very thor-  * oughly eijt off from outside communication, and  we have little real knowledge of events transpiring in these countries since Germany declared  war on Russia.  Reports have come from travellers who have,  made their way out amidst dreadful difficulties  and hardships. These reports indicate a state  bordering on revolution. Dr. Liebknecht, the  leader, and Rosa Luxembourg, the orator, of the  Social Democrats are reported to have been shot  '   in Berlin; also in Vienna executions are reported.  These reports gain credibility from the now  published protests in Germany and Austria which  we reproduce herewith:  The statement of the German Social Democrats  reads:  "An appeal! The soil of the Balkan states is  still damp with the blood of the thousands who  have been murdered there; the ruins of burned  cities^and devastated villages still smolder; hungry and jobless men, widowed, women, and orphaned children still are staggering through the  desolate land, yet once more the war furies, set  loose by Austrian imperialism, .are descending to  bring with them death and destruction over all  of Europe.  "No matter bow much we may condemn the  activities of the great Servian Nationalists, yet  the frivolous manner in which the Austro-Hungar-  ian government provokes war roust call forth the  sharpest protest. The demands of that, government (upon Servians) are of a brutal nature.  Never in the history of the world have such demands been placed upon an independent' state.  The Austrian demands upon Servia can only be  taken as outrightly intending to provoke war.  Call War Criminal  4  "The class conscious proletariat of Germany in  the name of humanity and civilization raises a  flaming protest against the criminal activities ot  the war provokers. It commandingly demands of  ��������� the German government that it use-its influence -  upon the Austrian government for the maintenance of peace, and in case this shameful war can  no longer be averted the German government  should refrain from in any way mixing up in it.  Not a drop of blood of a German soldier should  be sacrificed to the interests that profit hy imperialism and to the lust for power and aggrandizement on the part of the Austrian overlords.  '' Party members, we call upon you to give ex;  pression to this firm demand for peace on the  part of the class conscious proletariat in mass-  meetings. A most solemn hour has come; more  solemn than any in the last decade. There is  danger in delay. A world war is threatening.  The ruling classes who in times of peace despise  you, humiliate you, now wish to misuse you as  v food for the cannon. Everywhere raise the cry  in the ears of these war lords: 'We don't want  war! Down with war! Long live the international  Brotherhood of Nations!'  "The Executive Committee of the Social-Democratic Party.   Berlin, July 25, 1914."  The Austrian Socialists' protest was heavily  censored, but reads in part as follows:  "Workingmen, ,party members: We address  these words to you in a most solemn hour. ,The  danger of war with Servia draws nearer ������and  nearer. Before the day is up and this paper  reaches you, war may be an actuality. The' Aufi-  tro-Hungarian government has sent an ultimatum  to Belgrade which must be complied with by 6  o'clock Saturday if a bloody was is to be avoided.  Peace now hangs on a slender threaid. If Servia  refuses to accept Atistria's demands we have war  upon us���������war with the horrors which follow in  its train. The burdens of war will, of course,  fall upon the shoulders of the masses. The people  will pay for it with their blood and possessions.  Must there be such a war?  "We, the Social Democrats, the representatives  of the people who create wealth, do not close our  eyes to the great injustice which the Servian  powers have committed against Austria. We disapprove of the use of force; we condemn the  Sarajevo assassination; we condemn all those who  shared in the guilt of the Sarajevo incident. We  recognize that Austria-Hungary is right when it  : demands that Servia punish all those concerned  in the plan. We understand that Austria-Hungary  wants a guarantee from Servia that all under- j  ground plotting against the Austrian union will I  not be tolerated by it.  Servia Would Yield?  " We, are convinced, however, that the Servian  government would never offer opposition to these  demands of Austria, demands which are sanctioned by international law. We Me convinced  that all the demands of the Austro-Hurigarian government which are^ for the protection of the state  could and would be fulfilled in peace and-that  there is, no political necessity for deviating from  the paths of peaceful settlement of. the difficulty.  Austrian Konor as a great power is not at stake.  ���������V "It is for this reason that in the name of the  working class;,/ we the representatives of the German workers in Austria, declare that we do riot'  assume the responsibility for this war and that  we will hold responsible for this war '."and for  whatever disasters will follow it, those who have  created this situation, who have supported and  furthered the program which brings on this war. .  "We want a free, progressive Austria which  Will rest uppn the self-gbveri_ment of all the'nations in this state, which will offer all the possibility of cultural development, which will in reality jie a union of free peoples.  "We are of the opinion that in our time a state  can thrive only in freedom, that it can exist only  through justice. As the, representatiyes of the  disinherited members of preserit day society we  aim at a state of government which will come to  the aid of the working class now struggling for>  freedom with social and cultural reforms.  "The German Social Democratic".Members in  Austria." ,   "��������� '-  ONE OF VICTORIA'S BEST  LOVED PASTORS RESK  Belgian Socialists  * v.On the other hand the Belgium Socialists have  also issued a proclamation to their members. It  reads in part as follows:  "Why do we, the irreconcilable anti-militarists,  applaud those who offer themselves in defence  of their country? It is because it is necessary to  protect our hearths, homes and families, and our  ancient freedom at the price of our blood.  "Go, sons arid- workers! Register as recruits.  We prefer to^die for progress and solidarity to  living under a regime of brutal force and savage  violence."  The contrast is tremendous' and. .coming, as it  does, from those on the war centers that must  suffer most should lend weight in the formation  of opinions to those of us at a distance: ,  There is also a straw from Canada that shows  the trend of thought:     ,  St. Thomas, Aug. 9���������Up to last night seventy-  eight men had registered at,the headquarters of  the 25th Regiment as volunteers for the overseas contingent. Among the recruits is William  Stokes, President of the Ontario Labor Educational Association, which at the annual session  here on Victoria Day took.a stand against militarism.  Mr. Stokes is a South African veteran.  And another from the United States, which furnishes still further food for thought:  New York, Aug. 12i���������Figures computed in the  naturalization bureau of the county clerk's office  today show tbat since the orders were issued for  the mobilization of the reserves of the foreign  countries now at war, applications for naturalization papers have increased more than 20 per cent.  The rush began last week and kept increasing  each day until County Clerk Schneider was compelled to call in all the attaches of the bureau  who were on their vacation..  . Ah inspection of the first papers filed within  the past ten days shows the majority of applicants  are Germans or Austrians. There are a few Russians, and scarcely any French, Belgian or English  applicants., .  > In. the British shipbuilding world just now  there is one.very encouraging sign. Although it-  . was generally predicted that shipbuilding in the  ; United ICingdom would be temporarily paralyzed  by the outbreak of war in Europe, it is now found  that a large number of orders are still being  placed with British shipbuilding companies.

It is with a sense of deep loss that the citizens  of Victoria will learn of the early retirement from:  the pastorate of the First Congregational Church  of Rev. Hermon A. Carson, who for over ten years  has-been minister of that congregation.  Mr. Carson has accepted an invitation to the  Congregational Church at Point St. Charles, Montreal. He will leave Victoria on September 7, and  will take over his work at his new appointment  on October 1. There are several reasons which  have prompted him to take this step, one of them,  being that he will be in direct touch with his aged  parents. Another is that the Rev. A. W, Main,  who was his old pastor, died when in charge of  this church last winter, since which Rev. W. HVV  Warriner has temporarily filled the post. Mr.  Carson, who is already a B. A., desires to take a  post-graduate course in Divinity at the Union  Theological college, Montreal, and residence in  the premier city of Canada will enable him to. fill*..  this long-cherished wish.  , Mr. Carson, in a letter to his congregation,  says: "The strain which has been imposed upon  me because of the heavy work of the last few  years has been very severe, and convinces me that  it is wise to accept the opportunity that is afforded me for a change. I am glad that this my first Z  pastorate has been spent amid such congenial surroundings, with plenty of hard work to do. I am  glad also to have had the opportunity of doing a  little for the betterment of this city. I can honestly say tbat I have'given this church whole-heart--\  ed service up to this present moment, but during  recent weeks I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that my work here for the present is  finished-   '  "In conclusion let me appeol to the entire membership of this church, and congregation to be  loyal to the work of Christ here." ���������';���������/  As Mr. Carson'explains, this has been his only  pastorate, as he came here direct from college  soon after the congregation built the old church  at the.corner of Pandora and Blanshard streets.  In the last few years the attention of ihe pastor  and church leaders has been directed to the establishment of a first-class institutional building on  the" new site on Quadra street," and MrVrCarson"  had the satisfaction some months ago of seeing  the building formally opened. ���������  In equipments for a modern church, there are  few finer in the west, the physical and mental  side as well as the spiritual side of the congregation being provided for. The officials of the  church have accepted the resignation of the pastor with a deep sense of regret. A committee of  church members will be appointed to make ar-  : rangements for a successor. .    .  SIR ADAM BECK GIVES HIS HUNTERS FOR  WAR.

HILL   BUYS   CATTLE    IN    BRITAIN   FOR  NORTHWEST;  LONDON, Aug. 15.���������For the purpose of improving the breed of cattle in the Pacific northwest, some important purchases of English cattle  -/have been made here for James J. Hill. One shipment is of fifty, dairy shorthorn bulls, which will  be given away to as many counties in that section  of the country. % Each oneiof these bulls is born  of a cow with a milk record of 10,000 pounds or  more the year.'  Besides the- gift of these blooded animals to  the farmers of the .northwest, a herd of ten cows  and a bull of Soiith Devons, the first to be imported to America, will be sent to Hill's Minnesota  farm as well as two prize-winning dairy shorthorns to his North Dakota farm.

' LONDON, Aug. 15.���������A dispatch front Brussels  to the Exchange Telegraph Company says the  death of General von Emmich, the German commander at Leige, is confirmed. He is to be succeeded by General von der IVIarwitz.  General Otto von Emmich was sixty-six years  old. He joined the army as a volunteer in 1866  and was promoted two years later to adieuten-  ancy. * He took part in the Franco-Prussian war  of 1870-71. Afterwards he was promoted through  all the grades until he became major-general in  1901. When he was appointed to the command  of the Tenth Army Corps he was made a general.

Without any delay or any change  in the plans outlined earlier in the  year the Vancouver Exhibition Association is proceeding with its work  and will on the night of September 3  formally open the fifth annual Vancouver Exhibition with elaborate ceremonies.  It had been rumored, probably as  the result of the report that the Vancouver Exhibition Association had-*  volunteered the use of. its grounds as  a military encampment, that _ there  would be no Exhibition at Vancouver  this year.  But there will be an Exhibition at  Vancouver���������it^will open on schedule  time, and it will be a very big exhibition���������bigger and far better than any  hitherto attempted _ in Vancouver.  Every department shows an increase  of from twenty-five to one hundred  per cent, in exhibits and in class.  The decision to hold an exhibition  on schedule time in Vancouver this  year resulted from a most thorough  and careful consideration of the European war situation. The strengthening of England's position as the result of recent developments, the an-  nouncemnt that the Japanese would  look after the Pacific for Great Britain, and that there need be little trouble expected from the German' warships here, were potent reasons for  the decision to proceed with the big  show. ���������"���������".'  And right after this came the decision to make another and a larger  advertising and publicity appropriation this year. The Vancouver Exhibition     Association   is   a   thorough  believer in the potency .of advertising,  and realizing the changed, conditions  it boosted instead of curtailed its  publicity funds.  SPEND THOUSANDS  OF DOLLARS FOR  BIG EXHIBITION  European Situation-and Consequent  Depression Only Served   to    Spur  Vancouver Exhibition Management  j to I  Greater    Endeavors ��������� Serious  V  Shortage of Prize Lists.  Thousands and thousands of .dollars are being expended this year by  the Vancouver Exhibition management to make an exhibition which will  exceed any other show of the kind  ever held in Western Canada. These  big expenditures are backed by'hard,  persistent work on the part of directors, management and the large staff  of exhibition employees. Everybody  is helping Vancouver to put on a big  Fair, and the development of the European war situation in the last few  days with its consequent depressing  effect has only spurred the management on.  The effect of the early start made  this year, the cumulative endeavors of  previous years and >the policy of  boostingby every conceivable method  and on every possible occasion has  resulted in a tremendous demand for  prize -lists. This has been taken as  indicative of the success of the exhibition.  Last year some fifty thousand prize  lists were printed by the Exhibition.  A few score were left on the hands  of the management. This year, starting early and with everything to favor  them until the war broke out, the Exhibition directors determined to make  a tremendous effort to excel themselves in every way and to create a  finer Fair than was ever opened previously in British Columbia.  So an order for eighty thousand  prize lists went forward to the printers right away, and today that big  order has already proven to be too  small so that the management is  asking for the return of some of those  mailed out earlier in the summer. It  is too late to have more printed as  Exhibition  entries  closed  on  August  20; ���������  Of the Fair itself the Exhibition  Association's news bureau announces  that every department is nearly ready  for the reception of the thousands of  exhibits which will be displayed.  Both Jhe Diminion and the British Columbia governments will spend several thousand dollars on exhibits.  Every phase of British Columbia's  commercial, industrial, professional,  art and educational life will be represented. Prizes totalling a value of  One Hundred Thousand Dollars are  offered for competition.  The Exhibition grounds are large  enough to hold one hundred thousand,  people at one time with ease, and  walks are large enough, the buildings  roomy enough and accommodations  big enough to take care of this little  army without any trouble. Every  day, from September 3 to September  12. is to be a big day. Every night  will be a big night:  ���������jj  I  ..���������.,���������..^.<^���������.'���������H���������^^^'H'^H������������������^^^���������^^H^���������I^^M���������^^  *l!***X  '?  1, i.

Limited haVe  issued the following Circular to their  Shareholders:  Hth August, 1914.  "To the Shareholders of  Athabasca Oils, Limited.  "It may be of interest to the shareholders to learn that the registered  office of this ComDany has been moved  to the Herald Building, Calgary, Alta.,  and that Dr. Walter S. Scott, H. B.  Fergusson and F. L. Otter have joined  the Board of Directors, the first named  becoming President of the Company.  This move is largely due to the fact  that by arraugement with the Company, Mr. Mowbray,S.. Berkeley has  undertaken charge of its development'  operations and Mr. W. Gray, who Is  assistant to Mr. E. H. Cunningham  Craig, is proceeding at once to the  Company's property ln order to make  a geological report to the directors and  also to locate future wells on same.  It is consequently felt Calgary forms a  more convenient centre of operations  than Edmonton. Prior to the changes  referred to, the status of the leases of  the Company were enquired into by  Mr. Berkeley's solicitor, and an audit  of the books of the Company was entrusted to Messrs. Webb, Read, Hegan,  Callaghan & Co. of Edmonton, Chartered Accountants. The result of both  enquiries was satisfactory.  The season's operations on the property have been.in progress for a few  weeks and definite reports may come  down at any moment with regard to  the developments. The operations  were entrusted to the charge of Mr.  Hugh McPhereon, a driller of wide and  varied experience in different parts of  the world. Mr. McPherson has had  charge of drilling operations for Mr.  Berkeley on several occasions, and the  latter has the utmost confidence in  his capacity, faithfulness and integrity.  Arrangements were completed some  time ago to have an installation of  wireless at the Company's Wells, and  work on this has been proceeding for  some time. It is proposed to form a  subsidiary company to deal with this  las it is believed that the installation of  I this wireless will prove of very great  benefit in connection with the development of Northern Alberta, and every  effort will' be made in the direction of  making it a commercial sucess to ensure as far as possible a satisfactory  return' from the amount invested.

Krigets manga foljder.

Denna, som det torde synas,  glada nyhet, gaf emellertid "Van  Horst sjalf anledning till missno-  je. Han .hade vantat att han skul  le erhalla ny rattegang och ytt-  rade att han lika garna ville han-  gas som att tillbringa aterstoden af  sitt lif i fangelset. Det mest be-  tydande vittnet mot Van Horst  var hans foljeslagare Lester, som  dog strax efter han afgifvit sitt  vittnesmal.  ORDET PRITT.

Dr. Tidey som da var hospita-  lets lakare, konstaterade att det  endast var reumatisin och fore-  skref endast ingnidning af ett liniment'. Tva, a tre manader efter-  at anlande Thompson till Vancouver for att soka hjalp for den o-  lidliga plagan i skuldran som han  icke kunde blifva af med och det  befanns da att det var for sent  att erhalla bot for den urledvrid-  na skuldran.  I en stamning mot Columbia  Coast Mission och dr. Tidey ala-  des dessa att till Thompson utbe-  tala .$1250 hvardera. Emellertid  ofverklagades domen af Columbia  Coast Mission pa. den grund, att  de vbro fria fran allt ansvar, da  de engagerat dr. Tidey, som var  en kvalifieradj praktiserande la-  -kare.;  ' :'���������: ' V   V  0    '  Detta gillades a"f appellations-  domstolen och Columbia Coast  Mission frikandes fran ansvaret.  Da dr.

Bref fr&n Silvardale, B. C.  Arade i*edaktor!  I Kuriren den 23 juli lastes ett  bref af Mrs. Wolf om forhallan-  dena har pa platsen.  Med anledning daraf fa vi be  att genom eder tidning till Mrs.  Wolf fa frambara vart djupt kan  da tack for det hedrande omnam-  nande och de gode rad som dar  gifves. Tillhorde ej Mrs. Wolf  hvad man kallar det svagare ko-  net, sa skulle'nog mer an en af de  stora jattarna vilja frambara sitt  tack pa ett mera eftertryckligt  satt an som kan ske i en tidnings-  spalt.  Mrs. Wolf har dock giomt att  namna en af de senaste store han-  delserna. Den storartade Picnic,  som anordnades for litetv sedan.  Men som blygsamhet ar en dygd,  och Mrs. Wolf var en af initiativ-  tagarne, och sa kan man ju daraf  forsta hvarfor den ej blifvit namd.  Det ar dock ett sorgligt faktum,  att de namnda sjukdomarne insmu  git sig har. Men for ett och ett  halft ar sedan, syntes det som om  nagra frammande baciller skulle  sallat sig till de forut befintliga,  hvilka lifvade af det nya kamrat-  skapet gaf sig ut pa, iAya harjnin-  ga^. Alldeles maktlos star man  dock icke. Om hvar och en so-  ker h&lla rent vid egen dorr, sa  kan nog mycket vinnas i sanitari,  hanseende.  Badet att om nagon gor oss  oratt, skola vi anjita lagen, ar nog  bra. Men de fiesta har ha n^-K  trottnat pa att anlita jurister for  ofrigf aro de ej sa valsituerade rtt  de kunna underhalla en standig  sadan. Att ge goda rad ar dock  mycket otacksiamt, ty de tro inte  hvad man sager.  Mrs. Wolf beklagar sig ofver  ���������allt baktal som fores. Vill da, pa-  minna om ett mote som holls har  for nagot mer an ett ar sedan, och  da sa godt som alia var samlade.  Hvarvid framstalldes ett par fra-  gor till Mrs. Wolf att fa, hesvara-  de. Huru detta upptogs och  hvad svar som da gafs, torde Mrs.  Wolf erinra sig. For ofrigt in-  stamiAa vi, att det ar ett harligt  klimat, och en treflig plats med  alia nutida bekvamligheter som  kan asbadkommas i odemarken.  Daribland afven tradlos telegrai.  Men om det ar ratta platsen for  Mrs. Wolf ar val svart att af gora. Bjornen bestar sig med egen  pals.'- V .   ;'���������.'������������������ V.  Silverdalsbor.
