Have they enough men available to  [crush their way through the Allies'  (armies? If so when the break does  come will the Allies be able to fall  [back on the Amiens-Soissons-Rheims  [line of defence? Or will Paris be the  [next stand?' These are questions  ithat now occujpy every mind. The  [stand made by the Allies this week  (seems to~be reassuring and the surprising victories and rapid advance of-  IRussian forces in east Prussia���������Posen  jand Gallicia have considerably heartened every sympathiser with the  Istand taken against the Prussian, milt-.  itary aggression.  |[ Thus an intensely interesting situation has developed and the world  (looks' on with breathless interest at  [the double race of armies���������the. Ger-  Imans on-Paris-and-the Russians-non  [Berlin.  The obstacles in the way are seri-  5us and mean a horrid loss of life to  fovercome.

London.���������All Britain resounds with  the call to arms. Kitchener demands  a field force of 500,000 fighting men  within six months on the continent.  This means a call for at least 1,000,-  000 men. The flames kindled by  Prussian aggression must be quenched  or ruin will overwhelm us.  Aug. 28, London, 12:40 a.m.���������The  French operations of war over a distance of some 250 miles, have necessitated certain changes in position of  our troops, who are now occupying a  strong line to meet the German advance, supported by the French army  on both flanks.  X The morale of both armies appears  to be excellent, and there is little  doubt that .they will give good accounts of themselves in the positions  they now hold.

A reverse to  the forces of the Allies is admitted  by the British newspapers, who say  that "it was a fine stroke for the Germans to have rushed Namur under  the eyes of the Allies."

The Allies have abandoned Lille  and Valenciennes to the Germans  without firing a shot and fallen back  upon a strongly entrenched position.

The unanimity with which men of every political standing have come forward and offered  their services shows that in the hour of danger  we are British subjects first and party politicians  only in the time of peace. If the war does no  other good, it will demonstrate to the world, no  matter how divergent our views may be in political matters, in the hour of danger we stand  shoulder to shoulder for the welfare of the Great  Empire to which we belong.  BAN ON EXPORT 07 L008 REMOVED  Victoria, Aug. 26.���������The Provincial government announced today its decision to remove restrictions on the exportation of logs.  This means a speedy sale of now unsaleable  logs that have been accumulating in British Columbia, and roughly1 estimated will set about  $1,000,000 of new, good American money circulating in British Columbia. Why was it not done  long ago?  London.���������The battle of   Charleroi  was a second Baiaklava.   The carnage in the streets was so terrible that  the dead remained standing upright.  At Mons the British troops repulsed  the Germans in six distinct attacks,  and retired only when a general retirement  to  stronger  positions    because strategically advisable.

A. N .Co.'s  steamer Admiral Sampson during a thick smoke  and fog. The Sampson sank in four minutes after the collision, carrying with her the captain  and seven of the crew, as well as two passengers. One stowaway was mortally wounded. The  Sampson lies in 400 feet of water, and is a total  loss.  One of the contingent of the 6th D. CO.

A MOUNTAIN STORM  "On the morning of August 14 the blizzard  was still raging, about 8 inches of snow having  fallen, and in some places drifts 3 or 4 feet deep  had piled up, so that all trails were filled, and  even with Ab. Brett, an old timer as guide, is was  with some difficulty we were able to travel  through the pass at 6,-300 feet elevation to the  head of a small creek below the mountain known  as the 'Smith' summit, which had to be crossed  at an elevation of 6,800 feet in order to descend  into the Cadwallader creek valley on the opposite  side and nearly 2,000 feet lower."  This storm was in the pass crossing over from  Anderson lake to Bridge river not much more  than 100 miles from Vancouver. The trail here is  being lowered more than 1,000 feet.

DEMAND TO BECOME BRITONS  Large numbers of Germans still in England are  seeking British naturalization papers.  Several thousand Germans have recently applied to be naturalized. '  Home Office offieials make no attempt to disguise the fact that the demand for naturalization  papers at the present moment is absolutely unprecedented.  Tokio, Aug. 25.���������The minister of education has  issued ah instruction to the school teachers and  pupils urging them to be kind to the Germans remaining in the country. "True to the spirit of  Bushido and humanity,'' the instruction- says,  "you must extend your sympathy and courtesy to  the subjects of a country which is unfortunately  being opposed by almost all the European nations." '>���������'.������������������'yy'::'   "-������������������'������������������  " Theminister of home affairs has also issued  an instruction to the provincial governors, ordering them to look after the welfare of the German subjects who desire to stay in Japan."  "The Japanese .nation," the ministry says,  "entertains no hostile feeling towards individual  Germans, and it is our duty to protect as best we  can the lives and property of the Germans in our  country."  IS HOLLAND FOB OR AGAINST OS?  The Hague, Aug. 20.���������Holland now, has a  flour and bread supply of only sixteen days.  Thiswa8 the startling announcement made by  the minister of agriculture today in an interview  published in the papers in which he calls on the  public to practice the strictest economy in the use  of flour. The minister urges the people to substitute rice for flour as much as possible. The  minister says that Holland produces only sufficient wheat to last two and a half .months. The  rest of the' requirements of the country must be  imported.;' ,  Harvest Just Begun  The harvest, according to the minister has just  begun. The visible supply is enough for sixteen  days. The government has seized 13,000,000 milligrammes of grain in ships and storehouses which  would have been exported. The shortage of the  supply is chiefly due to the cargoes of wheat on  English ships bound for Rotterdam having been  seized by the English and taken to London. The  minister adds:  "The public ought to know the situation which  js facing them. Bread is bound to rise and rice  ought to be substituted as much as possible."  Shipping at a Standstill  The minister pointed out the fact that shipping  is practically at a standstill. Only one ship entered Rotterdam yesterday when there are usually sixty iarrivals daily. The factories are closed  and all the able bodied men are under arms on  the frontier.  The. remainder are unemployed.''  There is a serious shortage of coal in Holland  also. The economic situation is extremely bad,  but the gov^qiment does not intend to declare a  moratorium.' It has aspect the courts to be lenient  with debtors and to decline to issue orders in  bankruptcy.

LLOYD OEORGE ON BRITAIN'S FOOD SUPPLY  The following is. a condensed report of Lloyd  George's speech in the House of Commons on  food supplies and the insurance of shipping :���������  ��������� The government will guarantee war risks on  wheat and flour shipped or to be shipped from Atlantic or Canadian ports-to the-United Kingdom  under existing contracts;.  Premiums to be paid by the importer and to be  charged by him against the eventual receiver.  This step, it is understood, is being taken to  secure 64,000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat.  Dagger to Stock  The whole question of the food supply, the  preservation of our home resources, and the holding up. of stores is to be taken up at once by the  Imperial Defence Committtee, acting in all probability through a special committee of the Board  of Agriculture.  The chief dangers were outlined on Tuesday  by a prominent official at;the Board. He considered the danger of -a failure of the cereal supply  to be remote.- Except in the eastern counties, he  said, the harvest is good, and will provide a four  months' supply apart from other sources.  But he had deep fears for the stock of the  country. If the price of meat or alarm at the  price of feeding stuffs causes farmers and breeders to kill female animals the loss to the country  will be felt for years. It is impossible to say how  long it would take to supply the loss, if there is  anything like a wholesale slaughtering of sows  and ewes and- cows. Such breeding stock as we  have does not exist elsewhere in the world. It is  impossible that, even the mares might be killed for  food.  Some cottage people, who have been unable  in the last day or two tq- get delivery of food,  have already begun to sell their sows; and it has  become very important that some official assurance as to the supply of fodder should be given,  since the holding up of stores may do almost as  much damage in this direction as <a general shortage. Oil cake, much of which comes from Russia, will be cut off,, and its loss will be a source of  trouble to dairymen; but there is at present no  need to despair of a good supply of grain foods of  all sorts.

The reports made by correspondents on Ju'y  31 shew that the condition of grain  crops has undergone a marked change  since the -last reports for June 30.  due to excessive heat and continuous  drought during the month of July,  especially in the Northwest pro\inces  where the bulk of the grain crops  is produced.  Measured by a standard of 100 representing the promise of a full cror  the average condition for the whole of  Canada is returned for fall wheat as  71.5, compared with 78 on June 30  and 77.7 on July 31, 1913, for spring  wheat at 77.9 against 87.3 last month,  87.6 a year ago, for oats as 77.9  against 87.3 last month and 87.4 in  1913, for barley as 77.4 against 86.2  last month and 87.5 last year and for  rye as 78.5 against 84.7 and 85. In  the Maritime provinces conditions  show excellent, and in Quebec and  Ontario, though droughty is reported  as having shortened the straw, the  grain was said to be filling well and*  the figures of condition, which for  most of the grain crops exceed or approach 90 are not greatly different  from those of a motnh ago. For  spring wheat in Manitoba the condition is 68.2 against 82.4 a month ago,  for oats it is 62 against 87.6, for barley 62 against 79.8 and for rye 68.5  against 100. In Saskatchewan the  figures are on July 31 for spring  wheat 66 against 90 on June 30, for  oats 57.8 against 88.9, for barley 59.0  against 89.4 and for rye ,74.4 against  92. In Alberta the condition is represented by 68 for fall wheat against  73 last month, 75.4 for spring wheat  against 84.3, 71.5 for oats against 85,  71.5 for barley against 85.9 and 77  for rye against 83.7. In some cases  western correspondents state that  there was still time for rains to effect an improvement before harvest,  which .would begin about the-end of  the first week in August. Crops after  summer fallows are distinctly superior to those prepared by fall or spring  ploughing. Converting the figures  of the standard condition at July 31  into those-of a scale wherein 100 represents the. average condition at  July 31 for the six years 1908 to 1913  the condition for fall wheat is 90, for  spring wheat 93, for oats 89, for bar  ley 92 and for rye 94. That is to say  the yield per acre this year is expected  to be for fall wheat 10, for spring  wheat 7, for oats 11, for barley 8 and  for rye 6 per cent, below the six-year  average.  Potatoes in the Maritime provinces  give an excellent promise with figures  of condition ranging from 93 to 96.  A preliminary estimate of the yield  per acre of fall wheat gives 20.95  bushels as compared with 23.29 bushels in 1913. For the harvested area  of fall wheat in the five provinces of  Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, amounting to 973,300 acres the estimated total  yield is 20,394,000 bushels as compared with 22,592,000 bushels, the  final estimate of 1913. The drought  has . naturally - affected the yield of  hay and .clover, the yield per acre of  which for all Canada is, according to  the preliminary estimate, 1.15 ton as  against 1.33 ton the final estimate of  1913. The estimated total' yield is  9,206,000 tons as compared with 10,-  859,000 tons, the figures estimate of  19.13. The yield of alfalfa is placed at  129,780 tons against 237,770 tons last  year. ,.������......

Bigger, Ltd., at  23 Hastings St. West. This location,  in a short time, is becoming as well-  known as was their old stand opposite  the Carter-Cotton Bldg. Here we  have a striking example ot what  might be termed "intensive" business.. Two things impress the observer whose eyes are trained to see  things  as  they are,  First The capacity of the store is  inadequate to the large stock of jewelry and the volume of business;  Second This inconvenience is not  only overcome by the skilful arrangement of the contents, but is made to  contribute to the general effect and  the pleasure of the, visiter. Upon  examination a third fact will soon appear, viz.: that extraordinary carte  has been exercised in the buying of  the stock so that the space might be  devoted to goods of quality rather  than cheap goods of quantity. Many  -things of interest were noticable, but  especially their display of cut glass  and silverware elsewhere advertised  in these columns.

'.������������������,,_" ' ''��������� "*   ������  Premier McBride has made a strong, sensible  utterance on this question and we trust that these  views will prevail in spite of public clamor to the  contrary.  Germany V behavior musjt not be an example  for us. Britain still believes that "honesty is the  best policy," and is now giving of her best blood  to defend her signature to what the German chancellor contemptuously calls "a scrap of paper."  The story of the British ambassador's last interview with the German government the night  that war was declared is one to make every Britisher feel glad of his nationality. After demanding from the German secretary of state, Herr von  Jagow, that the strict observance,of Belgian neutrality, was a sine qua non of British friendship,  and being told that Germany could not promise  ihe same, our ambassador then went to see the  Chancellor, Dr. Von Bethman-Hollwlg, and found  him in a state of great excitement.  "The chancellor," says the report, "began a  harangue, which lasted about; twenty minutes. #e  said the step taken by Great Britain was terrible  to a degree. Just for a word' ueutrality '���������a word,  which in war tii&e, had been so often disregarded;  just for a scrap of paper Oreat Britain wm going  to make war on a Jdndred uation who desired  nothing better than to be friends with. her. All  his efforts in tbat direction had been rendered  . useless by tbis last terrible step, and the policy to  which, as J know, he had devotetf himself since  bis ascension to. office,, was tumbled down like a  house of cards. ��������� ���������  "What we had .done was unthinkable. It was  like striking a man from behind while he was  fighting for bis life against two assailants. He  held Great Britain responsible for all the terrible  events that'might1 happen.  Britain'! Word of Honor  "J protested strongly against this statement  and said that in the same way as he and Herr  von Jagow wished me to understand that for  strategic reasons it was a matter of life or death  to Germany to advance through_ Belgium and vio-_  late the latter's neutrality, so I would wish him to  understand that it was, so to speak, ������..matter of  life or death for tbe honor of Great Britain that  she should keep her solemn engagement to do her  utmost to defend Belgium's neutrality if attacked.  A solemn compact simply had to be kept, or what  confidence could any one have in engagements  given by Britain in the future?  "The chancellor said: 'But at what price  will that compact have been kept! Has the British government thought of that?'  "I hinted to his excellency as plainly as I  could that fear of consequencei could hardly be  regarded as an excuse for breaking a solemn engagement.. But his excellency was so excited, so  evidently overcome by the news of our action, so  little disposed to hear reason that I refrained from  adding fuel to the flame by further argument.  That evening Herr Zimmerman, under secretary of state, called on Sir William Goeschen and  asked whether the call for his passports was equivalent to a declaration of war. The ambassador replied that there had been cases where diplomatic  relations had been broken off in which war had  not ensued, but his instructions showed that if a  reply was not received by 12 o'clock, Great Britain would take such steps as her engagements  require.  Herr Zimmerman said that it was in fact a declaration of war, as Germany could not give the,  assurance required.  The British ambassador declares he handed  a telegraph Teport of the conversation to the telegraph office in Berlin for transmission, but that it  never reached the British foreign office.  It will be seen then that Britain is at war not  only against "flesh and blood" but against the  incarnation of wrong principles which, if triumphant, must sink human liberties. But they, will  not triumph, and part of the price we must pay,  for their defeat is to remain true to our obligations to all mankind-���������Germans included���������no matter what Germany may do.  CANADA'S SECOND CONTINGENT  CONNAUOHT APARTMENTS  Corner Eighth avenue and Guelph street. Suites  in ^his modern fireproof building to let at med-  erate rent. Phone Fairmont 1716.  Ottawa, Aug, 25.���������Another expeditionary  force is being organized by the Canadian military  authorities. The first army division of 22,000  men will be on troop ships crossing the Atlantic  by the middle of next, month. Before they land in  Europe, the mobilization of another force will be  almost accomplished. The thing is being practically forced on the Canadian military authorties  by the development of the military spirit in Canada'. When the call for men first went out there  appeared to be reluctance at some points in the  response. However, by the time the troop trains  began moving, the desire to enlist had almost become an epidemic. Men climbed on the troop  trains and refused to be put off. As a result  there will be about 30,000 infantry in camp at  Valcartier instead of the    20,000   which were  SOUght.   .V.v ��������� ;���������''���������'��������� ".VV'v'V  This unusual rush of infantry has interfered  somewhat with the movement of artillery toVValcartier. The foot soldiers have spread over most  of the ground which has been prepared for all.of  the forces. As a result the artillery units will  continue to drill at battery and brigade headquarters until Friday or Saturday bf this week, when  they will go on to camp. The arrangements suits  them perfectly, as they will be able to complete  at home all the preparations which they have to  make before taking the field.  WILL TAKE DRASTIC ACTION  Government Prepared to Deal Harshly If Food  Prices Are Raised  Ottawa, Aug. 25.-r-That the government is prepared to take drastic action in dealing with the  question of food supplies is shown by the statement of Sir Robert Borden, issued last night on  j behalf of /the cabinet. If there are attempts to  charge extortionate prices for necessities of life  there will be prompt action. The Hon.' T. W.  Crothers, minister of labor, has arranged to secure weekly reports on the cost of food and other  necessities from all the principal points in Canada. These will be carefully Watched and as soon  as there is evidence of increased prices at any  point there will be an immediate investigation,  probably through judges.  By legislation which was passed at the emergency session the government has power now to  deal most drastically with the situation even to  the extent of taking over the food supply of the  country. The act gives full power for the government to make regulations and to enforce penalties.  LILLOET HEARD FROM  The town pf Lilloet is amongst the very oldest settled, places in British Columbia.

' This, we venture to say, is unparalleled in the  Empire.  .    '  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Material progress with the paving on Main  street, is jbeing made. Those who were most  bitterly opposed to the scheme are now beginning  to realize what a good highway means to. the municipality.  No one stood more abuse than Councillor Rowlings when he gave the (decisive'vote for this project. Now he is congratulated_for his foresight  and courage in not bowing before the will of those  who wished to see all progress stopped in the  municipality. x  At tbis time when work is difficult to obtain  and a few days' employment to a workingman  means so much, could not the Council take in  hand the paving of a few side streets with a  cheaper material than the ordinary street paving.  This is a time that calls for cool heads and  courage. Public and municipal work must not  be allowed to stop. How can the public be expected to show faith to go on with private work  if our municipal councils and public bodies do  not show the way. South. Vancouver gets the  credit of being one of the soundest financial municipalities in Canada, and it is recognized that the  present council have every faith in the future of  South Vancouver, and that no matter how dark  the clouds that hang overhead, no matter how  threatening the storm, the council discern the  gleam of hope shining in the dark sky of pessimism which hangs like a pall everywhere.  Nobly has South Vancouver answered to the  call to arms. Amongst those who have returned  to join their old regiments is James Ward, chief  constable of Cumberland. Mr. Ward was formerly one of the mounted constables in South Vancouver, but fell under the broom of T. M. Dickie's  council. How different a man's services may be  appreciated is shown by the meeting of the Police Commission at Cumberland, when Commissioner Cook moved that Mr. Ward's situation be  held open for him till he returns from the front.  The commissioner spoke in the highest terms of  Mr. Ward, as also did Councillor Parmham and  the other members of the council.  Mr. Ward holds two medals and five badges  for the South African campaign.

'���������.'������������������'������������������������������������..'*  AN APPEAL TO THE UNITED STATES  By H. O. WELLS.  H. G. Wells���������Dreamer, Socialist.  Novelist and now war enthusiast, has  issued a strong appeal to the United  States. It is worth reading, and we  publish it in full:���������  "The influence of your states upon  the war's nature and duration must  needs be enormous and in its ending  you may .play a part such as no nation has ever played since the world  began. For it rests with you to establish and secure or refuse to establish and secure permanent peace of  the world and the final ending of war  ��������� "This appeal 'comes to you from  England, but it is no appeal to ancient associations or racial affinities.  "Half the world is at war or on the  very verge, of war. It is impossible  that you should disregard or turn  away from the conflict.  "Inadvertently you have to judge  us. Unavoidable is your participation in the ultimate settlement which  will make or mar the welfare of mankind for centuries to come.  "We appeal to you to judge us and  listen patiently to our case and exert  the huge decisive power you hold in  the balance, not hastily, not heedlessly. For we do not disguise from ourselves you can shatter all our hopes  in this conflict.  Had a Share in Peace.  "Now "while you, because of your  fortunate position���������sane brotherly relations have become a fixed tradition  along your northern boundary, we  English had a share in securing that  ���������while you live free of the burden of  military preparations, free, as it  seems, forever, Europe .has for more  than half a. century bent more and  more wearily under the perpetually  increasing burden of armament.  "For many years Europe has been  an armed camp with millions of men  continually under arms, with the fear  of war universally poisdning its life,  with education impoverished, social  development retarded, and everything pinched but the equipment for  war.  "What does it matter now who began the thing or who was most to  blame? Here it is.. We have to deal  with it. But we English do assert it  is the government of the German emperor which for the last forty years  has taken the lead and forced the pace  in these matters which .have driven us  English to add warship to warship in  pitiless competition to retain that pre-  dominence at sea upon which our existence as free people depends.  Admits German Progress   ,  "Let us not attempt to deny the  greatness of Germany and Germany's  contributions to science, art, literature  and all that is good in human life.  But evil influences may overshadow  the finest people. Since the victories  of 1871 Germany has been obsessed  by worship of material power anJ  glory, and, scornful of righteousness,  it has been threateningly overbearing  to all the world.  "There has been a propaganda of  cynicism and national roughness declared contempt for treaties and  pledges, so that all Europe has been  uneasy and in fear.  ��������� "And since none of us are saints  certainly no nation is saintly.  "Recently there has not been a  country in Europe that has not shown  itself resentful under this perpetual  menace of Germany; Now at last and  suddenly the threatened thing has  come to pass.   Germany is at war.  "We have no hatred of things German or the German people. But we  are fighting to break this huge fighting machine forever, which has been  such an oppression as no native born  American can dream of to every  other nation in Europe.  "We are fighting to end Kaiserism  and Kruppism forever.   There shortly  and plainly, is our case and object.  Wants Help for Peace '  "Now let us come to the immediate substance of this appeal. We do  not ask you for military help. Keep  the peace which it is your unparral-  led good fortune to enjoy so securely.  But keep it fairly.  "Remember, we fight now for nation 1 existence.  "Europe, full of joyless determination to end this evil forever, plunges  grimly and sadly into the cruel monstrosities of war. .  "Assuredly, there will be little  shouting for the victors, whichever  side may win. At the end we do  most'firmly.'believe there will.be established a new Europe,', a Europe  riddled of rankling oppressions, with  a free Poland, a free Finland, a free  Germany, , and the, Balkan question  settled the little nations safe' and'  with peace secure.  "And it is 'of- supreme importance  that we should ask you now: What  are you going to do throughout the  struggle? What will you do at the  end?  , "Come what may, all the liberal  forces in England and France are resolved to respect the freedom of Holland. But the position of Holland is  a peculiar one in this war. The  Rhine runs along the rear of the long  German line as if it were a canal to  serve the line with supplies. Then it  passes into Holland, and so by Rotterdam to the sea.  "So it-is possible for any neutral  power such as you to pour a stream  of food supplies and war material by  way of Holland almost into the hands  of the German combatant line,  ing.    This continent, including Can-  mmBamamamaasammmammam  Chance for U. S. to Aid  "And here is where your country  comes in. In your harbors lie a great  number of big German ships that  dare not venture to sea because of our  fleet. It is proposed, we are told, to  arrange the purchase of these ships  by American citizens, transfer your  flag to them, and then load them with  food and war material and send them  across, the Atlantic through the narrow seas that at the price of .a cruiser  and many men we have painfully  cleared of German contact mines, to  get war prices at Rotterdam-and sup-V  ply pur enemies.  "It is, we confess, a smart thing to  do. It will give your people not only  huge and immediate profits, but a  mercantile marine at one coup.  "It is within your legal rights and  we will tell you plainly now we shall  refuse to quarrel with you about it,  but we ask you not fo be too easily oU  fended if we betray a certain lack of  enthusiasm for this idea.  "Arid beyond such enterprises as  this what are you going to do for  mankind and the ultimatep'eace of the  world?"  Will Cry for Disarmament  "When, this war is over all Europe  will cry .for disarmament. Are you  going to help them or going to thwart  that cry?  "In England we shall attempt to  extinguish the huge private trade in  war material, that Kruppism which  lies near the roots of all this monstrous calamity. We cannot do that  unless you do to.  "Are you prepared to do that? Are  you prepared to come into a conference at the end of this war to insure  the peace of the world or are you  going to stand out and make difficulties for us out of our world perplexities, snktch advantages, carp from  your infinite security at our allies,  perhaps in the crisis of our struggle  to pick a quarrel with us upon some  secondary .score?  "Are you indeed going to play the  part of a merely numerous little people, cute at trading; or are you going  to play the part of a great nation .in,  this life and death struggle of the old -  world civilization? Are you prepared  now to take the lead among nations  to which your greatness and freedom  point-you? <  -  "It is not for ourselves we make  this appeal. It is for the whole future of mankind. And we make it  with more assurance because already  your government has stood for peace  and observance of treaties against  base advantages. Already the wounds  of our dead cry out to you." ^  the situation must be faced with cour-  ���������  m M ^mi  In view of .the events taking place  in Europe, which will constitute an  epoch of perhaps unprecendented importance in history, we appeal  strongly' to all Canadian business  men and all whoholdsecuritiesorin--  vestments of any kind to meet the  present situation with* calmness and  confidence. Our first duty, at any  cost, is to aid in Great Britain's sustenance and defence, and our next  duty, not less important, is to keep  the business of the Dominion moving  as normally as possible.  Let it be remembered that while we  must lay aside something to pay our  share of the cost of the war, we have  at our back storehouses of natural  wealth scarcely yet touched. As the  calamities of Europe place a higher  value on our wheat 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 despoiled or  devastated by war. At the 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 proportions than ��������� ever.  Wealth production is proceeding,  and the opportunities for still greater  primary production are not diminish-  ada, will profit largely and speedily  by the changes in the world's currents of trade during the v/ar. Many  of our factories will find demands  upon them stimulated because of restriction placed upon the productive  machinery of Europe by the exigncies  of war, and though for a time in diminished quantities, a fair- proportion  of Britain's available capital will come  to Canada -for investment. Under the  circumstances, therefore, the one great  essential to keep business moving is  confidence, and Canada, probably of  all nations of the world, has least excuse to offer for lack of it.  "In the unprecedented and critical  situation that exists," says Sir Geo.  Paish, "it is of the greatest impprt-  ance that everyone should endeavor  to act as if great events were not impending. Were confidence seriously  disturbed, business would come practically to an end, and our ability to  face the difficulties that may be in  front of us would be seriously impaired. Therefore, it is of vital importance that, as far.as possible, the  events that are now taking place  should not interfere with the daily life  and the daily work of the nation.  Orders should be given, factories  should be run, and everything should  be arranged to maintain, as far as possible, the productive power and the  income of the country;  "But for this to be accomplished,  age and confidence on the part of  everyone. Investors must continue to  invest, bankers must continue to lend,  the Stock' Exchange must continue  to deal, and every one according to  his ability must endeavor to work  hard in order that individual incomes,  and, therefore,' the income of the  whole nation, may be maintained at  the highest possible level.  "A little over a century ago, when  the nation was at war with Napoleon,  its income was a very small one, being less than one-eighth of what it is  at present, and in a comparatively  small space of time the English people succeeded in raising about ������1,-  000,000,000 of money for war purposes, and so great was their confidence and courage that at the end of  the war, which severely taxed their resources, they were stronger and  wealthier than they had been at the  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 centrury ago, if our people are of  tlie same heart and industry, and we /]  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.  TRIESTE IN PANIC AS  FLEETS RAID ADRIATIC  Venice.���������The 'raid of the French  and British warships in. the Adriatic  produced an indescribable panic in  Trieste. A special train is waiting  there to take away the governor,  Prince Hohenlohe, and it is understood that as soon as the hostile fleet  appears in front of the city he will  hand over the place to the mayor of  Trieste, who will surrender it to save  the city, and especially the great new  dockyard  from  bombardment.  Italian refugees are crowding every  boat from Trieste to Venice.    They  tell almost unbelievable stories of the  tyranny of the Austrian police at  Trieste, who are making hundreds of  senseless arrests.  A MODERN WALLACE  Our boyhood days used to be refreshed by the stories of the number  of men Sir William Wallace would  kill single handed. A story of this  revived "sport" comes to us from  Belgium:���������  Since the beginning of the war  Lieutenant Henkart has been engaged  in  reconnoitering in  one of his  ar  mored cars. He has had several encounters with Uhlans, of whom he has  killed a considerable number, practically single handed. Hisonly assistr  ants in his reconnaissances are a  chauffeur, an engineer officer and a  sharpshooter.  On August 15 the party killed five  Uhlans; :on August 17 they killed several and on August 20 near Waterloo  they faced a force of nearly 500 Ger-^  mans a'nd escaped after killing 25  with a rapid-fire gun which was  mounted in the motor car. On August 21 the party met with a force of  30 Uhlan scouts and killed 20 of  them. Y '*t..~-K. '"I  .       a������ _ Ij   1  HYMN BEFORE ACTION  By Rudyard Kipling.

The opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Exhibition, like everything else appertaining to that  Exhibition, will be more elaborate than any yet  held in Vancouver. Some of British Columbia's  best speakers will take part in that ceremony, and  a feature will be the singing of the Mass Chorus  of school children.  The big pavilion, which .stands just opposite  to the grand stand, will be used for the opening  ceremony. -       '  v  Sharp at 8 o'clock Vancouver time, and 11  o'clock Ottawa time, JJis Highness will press the  button which will release dozens of electric  switches on the Exhibition grounds, thus throwing the Fair open to the public.  The opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Exhibition will be informal and the public will be  admitted free of charge on the opening night.  THE MINERAL EXHIBIT TO BE BEST YET  One of the most interesting exhibits at the  forthcoming exhibition will be the mineral display. One single case in that display will contain free gold to the value of $5,000. The ore will  be worth $10 per pound.  Insurance has been arranged for and a special  guard will be posted over the exhibit. This gold  comes from Texada Island. It is the real thing in  gold. It runs $200,000 to the ton. The case in  which it will be kept will be burglar proof, of  course.  Mr. H. B. Brown says there is a prospect of a  separation process being shown, in the mining  department.

APPLY TO OWNER, WESTERN CALL  203 KINGSWAY  ::  Hastings Park  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 re-V  suit of recent developments, the an-  nouricemnt 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  Opening Night���������September 3rd  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  to Greater Endeavors ���������Serious  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  boosting by 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  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 the.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  ��������� ���������  ��������� *  *\**********l**************** .1**********************************^ .n3iir*zs t-nt-jTiMt,ijairj.\ij  ���������maasmmmmmmmmmammm  6  THE WEST-E1JN CALL  Friday, August 28,1914  ���������WMS~J"i~i"_."i"i,"V  .K..%.;..;^;... .|Mf^{~J~{~j>^..>^~W~W..{~l--.

The  contents include many interesting  stories, and articles, among? them another canoe story "To Moose Factory by Canoe," which in so far as  the territory covered is concerned  form's a continuation of the account  given in last month's issue of a Trip  from Lake Temiscaming to Lake Ab-  itibi. _Bonnycastle Dale gives a_grap-  hic" description of ���������' "Wild Fowling  with the Kwakiutls" and the issue includes stories of interest to the general reader as well as articles and  departments containing special information for the sportsman.

Owing to the war the President and  Directors of the Canadian Forestry Association have; after the most careful  consideration, decided to cancel the  arrangements for the Forestry Convention which'was to be held in Halifax, Sept. 1st to 4th, 1914, and to postpone the Convention indefinitely. Whatever it is decided to do in the future,  due notice will be given thereof to the  members and all others concerned.  Attention is particularly directed to  the fact that all railway arrangements  as published have been cancelled, and  that anyone going to Halifax within  the stated dates will have to pay full  fare back to starting point.
