The old rugged morality of Protestant Germany, seems entirely gone and in its place  has come,a diplomacy worthy of Richelieu's  palmUest days and a conduct, tat least in war vying'  with the'Spaniards of the sixteenth century.  There is a reason. We content ourselves now;  with giving one more concrete example of their  lapse: ' >   _   -  Frederic W. Wile, Daily Majd Berlin corres>  pohdent, relates the incident as follows:  "A most sinister event, in the light of-what  has happened since, and one designed as hardly  any other could be to persuade the most-sceptical ampng us that the War Kaiser's plans for the  .sacking of Europe were deep laid, deliberate, and  stealthy. ��������� > - <��������� -^ 1  "I refer to the strange visit paid by Herr  Krapp von Bohleh and Halbwh, the head of  Krupp's, between June 14 and 2d, to Birkenhead^  Batrow-in-Furaa* Glasgow, }tteweMtff ' ���������--'-  ���������nd Shef_iel4 "'���������J3-^*���������  17  '/  ���������us-  <  j*'*  V  4  , a;  '    'J  k *1  ���������   ���������, - ���������savSL  ���������^sSf  IBs':  wifcTlii*^  d from ^twelve slwtes  mm.  mmt-   .Jjfieivpfj^lii^i  fja i>ro vide- ft  m  edjog ether  ""n������itej^&^  embarked.   *\������,pMovm  ilty" for the"rvn 6iIfa expedition*  litahar^jah of Mysbre^flialplaced $ly750,00O a^the  lispoaal of the government of India'for the expenditure in connection with the expeditionary  fprce;^hei chiefib;fl$w^  Hng in the^expense of a hospital ship, the idea of  hvhich originated with ^iwaBlfr and the Begum of  IBhopal have offered ift:q^e���������|wi(|e; sums bf moiaey  fat |he disposal of the government of India, and  [provide thousands of horses as remounts!

It was agreed that,  subject to the elementary precautions advisable  in such circumstances, there could be no harm in  extending to the Essen visitors the hospitality  for which, I fear, we are sometimes all too famous. They came and they saw. Whether they conquered remains to be seen. Doors, at any rate,  were flung wide open to them. There was even  some speechmaking. The fact that the utmost  possible care was exercised that the lynx-eyed  Dr. Ehrensberger and Herr von Bulow did not  see too much does not alter the underlying gravity  of the visit itself. At the time Birkenhead, Barrow-in-Furness, Glasgow, NewQaBtleTOn-Tyne, and  Sheffield thought it passing strange that Herr  Krupp von Bohlen should suddenly desire to look  us over.

Speaking in the Reichstag on August 4, Herr ,-on Beth-  mann-Hollweg said:  "We are now in a state of necessity  and necessity knows no law! Our  troops have occupied Luxemburg, and  perhaps are already on Belgian soil.  That is contrary to the dictates of  international law. It is true that- the  French government has declared at  Brussels that France is willing to respect the neutrality of Belgium as  long as her opponent respects it.  "The wrong���������I speak openly-Uhat  we are committing we will endeavor  to make good as soon as our military  goal has been reached. Anybody who  is threatened, as we are threatened,  and is fighting for his highest possession can have only one thought���������how  he is to hack his way through."  Trance could wait, but we could  not wait. A French movement upon  oar flank upon the lower Rhine might  ha\e been disasterous. So we were  rompellcl to override the just protest  of the Luxemburg and Fclgian governments.  i t  t  Ta  1914  *******^mi*****************<  **********H**************.&<*.^^^^  A 8TRAWBERRY PE8T.

The Strawberry  Root Weevil constitutes the greatest  obstacle to the successful growing of  strawberries in certain, sections of the  Lower Fraser Valley; the investigations carried out demonstrated: that  the control ot this insect was dependent upon cultural methods and the  system ot cropping, and for this reason these aspects- of the problem toa*-_  been fully discussed In addition to the  ��������� economic questions involved in the  control ot the weevtt. <��������� Copies of tWs  4 new Bulletin ape fwe/to.ttujse who   Vr������pllc������t| Publications  tcVDe**rt]a������ewy iof' "Agriculture,  <_������  m  *i  ,\ ���������.      ...

At this time when the whole of  Europe is at war and Canada is feeling serious effects of the same  through the stopping bf money for  the carrying out of public works,  etc., and the consequent closing down  of factories and the natural increase  in the number of unemployed, it is  necessary for the people to seriously  consider the best method of making  both ends meet and at the same time  endeavoring to keep as many employed as possible.  The ladies of the household can do  a great deal at this time towards this  object. They spend fully eighty per  cent of the wages earned per week  on household goods, clothing, etc.,  and if instead of buying goods that  are made in the States or outside of  the Province they would make up  their minds to buy nothing but British Columbia goods they themselves  would be astonished at the results.  They simply want to consider that  every dollar they spend on British  Columbia goods would mean probable work for one man for one hour  per day, whereas if they buy goods  from the Eastern Provinces, United  States, or other points, about twenty  per cent, of that dollar stays in town,  the balance goes out and never returns.  A number of relief committees have  been formed to handle funds collected  by public subscription for the dependents of those who have gone to  the front, and it cannot be too strongly impressed on those committees  that the money gathered for this purpose cannot be better spent than by  buying the local products and by so  doing keeping a number of those dependents employed and therefore relieve the refief fund to that extent.  There are all kinds of goods, manufactured locally j suitable for daily  consumption and for wearing purposes. One factory in town at the present time manufacturing woolen goods  has closed down for the first time in  five years, and has placed, .much  against'their will, 50 hands out of employment; this means ,50 families that  have got to be provided for somehow  by the public.  There is no doubt the relief societies and a number of ladies privately  are doing, and will do a lot to relieve  the situation, but it must be remembered that the people of British Columbia are immigrants from Great  Britain or have come from the Eastern counties of the United States, and  the very fact of them having to accept charity' is repugnant to them.  They would much rather be in a position, to. earn sufficient,.to keep themselves by honest work.  If, the- people of British Columbia  would .insist on British Columbia  goods, all the factories manufacturing  food stuffs and the allied industries  would be running full time, giving  employment to thousands of people,  and no call would be necessary on the  general public in the way of donations.  The general public should also take  an interest in the expenditure of the  city, the government and all public  bodies, and see that all material-required by them is purchased locally.  It is the public money in most cases  that is paying for this work, and it  should be spent where it will do the  most good to the public, and. this can  only be done by the general circulation of the money received by the  local industries and merchants. No  matter what business a man may be  in, some of this money' will come to  him through the general circulation.  In regard to relief committees, the  method of handling will probably be  by order placed  on  a  store,  and it  should be the duty of the members of  these committees to see that the  stores at which they place those orders stock and make a feature of selling local products.  The quality of the local goods is  equal if not better than the imported  goods as it must be remembered that  although the.price is the iame the imported goods have to bear freight  charges, insurance charges, cartage,  etc., which means that the local product has that amount of difference to  put into the workmanship; therefore,  the goods are better quality.  "BIGGER."  The 'Biggest of Its kind is the Jewelry store of Geo. G. Bigger, Ltd., at  23 Hastings St. West This location,  in a short time, is becoming as well-  known as waa their old stand opposite  the Carter-Cotton Bldg. Here we  have a striking example of 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 ot the visitor. 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 he  devoted to goods of quality rftther  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.  v m  i ���������������  Silverware and Cut  AT HALT PRICE  Our entire stock of silverware and cut glass ::  I has been marked at exactly half price.

A VALUABLE PRIZE  A dispatch from Amsterdam says that the Germans are preparing to reopen immediately the  great John Cockerill engineering works at Ser-  aing, near Liege. These factories, covering 375  acres of ground, were one of the first prizes of  the war.  The whole concern has been taken over by  the Prussian war office which has offered the  Belgian workmen 50 per cent, increase in wages  to remain at their places. ,  The Cockerill works are amongst the important engineering shops of the world. Pounded  about 100 years ago by an Englishman, John Cockerill, they have maintained their standing amidst  the ever increasing competition of great capitalizations.  John Cockerill was a virile Protestant, settled  in a population entirely Boman Catholic. He  "made himself very much beloved, treating, his  : .people as a great family. Hi* militant Protestantism found vent in.large scripture texts which  decorated the wall* of the dining rooms and which  were still there 50 years ������go, long after his death.  . The Cockerill works were the pioneers Jn oil  burners, and 40 odd years ago, whenoilyburners  were unheard of elsewhere Seraing was constructing a fleet of steamers for the Caspian w*.  , T The possession of this enormous factory, if the  ; Belgians will go to work, will be of the greatest  J Importance to Germany. Together with Mons and  Charleroi they constitute an equipment for turn-  .' ing out all that a nation fighting on land requires  * unsurpassed in the world.  The Germans seem to bave no doubt of ultimate, victory.  4 GOOD TWiQW  The Westminster Gazette, London, England,  contains the following letter:���������  - "Sir:- -Very thankfully-do I-confirm-the ex- -  perience of 4S. J3.' As a German teacher left  penniless in London at the outbreak of the war,  nothing has more touched my heart than the  kindness of British families who have offered  me an asylum and supplied me with financial  assistance. My father is fighting in the cavalry, my uncle in the navy, two of my brothers  in the artillery and engineers, and my mother  is nurse in a military hospital. Yet J am treated  in the home of an English barrister exactly as  one of his own daughters and made to feel the  greatness and the magnanimity of the character  of the nation at war, alas! with us, yet not with,  our people, if a paradox in pharse may be permitted.  Yours gratefully,  "Anna Gemmerich.  "August 7."  We believe that the treatment described in  this letter is typical of the attitude of British people all over the Empire. They are at war with a  system, not with a race, and this has been true of  Britain also in the past." During the wars with  France and Spain, history records the fearful  treatment of British prisoners accorded especially  by Spain, and yet in England, how different the  treatment accorded to the-Spaniard. Kingsley  in "Westward Ho," paints the difference and  we have many families in our midst who today  attest the fact.  A NARROW ESCAPE  The complete censorship of the press���������as far  as war news is concerned���������has given rise to many  stories that remain unconfirmed and uncontradicted.  One is that early in July Winston Churchill  stated to the Cabinet that he "held the German  fleet in the hollow of his hand and could destroy  it in 24 hours, and proposed with the Cabinet's  permission to issue orders to do so. The argument was that Germany was then, as they'well  knew, preparing for immediate wary and that she  Would give no notice but strike when she got  ready, and that the opportunity of the German  navy's presence in the North, Sea might not soon  occur again. As the story goes a vote was taken  and stood 8 for 11 against.  THE WAR DAY BY DAY  (Continued from Page 1)  "Strong as the British navy is today, there will  be an accession of strength within the next twelve  months of ten first-class ships, fifteen cruisers and  twenty destroyers, thus still further increasing  ' the margin of naval supremacy in ships of all  classes over Germany, who, during the same period, will add not more than a third of this number  to her fleet.  , "The prices of commodities have risen very  little. There is only a small amount of unemployment. The financial situation is satisfactory. The  British and French armies in France have fought  a series of hotly contested engagements in which  they have inflicted on the enemy losses immensely  greater than they have suffered. Their fighting  strength is unimpaired. In response to the call of  the government, 300,000 fresh recruits have joined  the British army.  "Many new divisions are already in process of  organization and the number of recruits now enlisting each day is equal to one divisiion and a half.  "The whole Empire is absolutely united and  firmly resolved to carry the war to successful  issue."  Telegram received by the British Embassy here  from the Foreign office in London:-���������  London, Sept. 7.���������A dispatch to the Times from  Ostend reports that arrivals from Brussels;, state  that many of the landsturm troops drilling daily  are men with white hair; which the correspondent  says shows that Germany called out every man  able to bear a rifle. Similar statements are made  by those who have seen German soldiers proceeding north to Antwerp. The Germans have placed  siege guns around Brussels.'; These are of heavy  calibre and are sunk in concrete.  "I learn from a sure source," the Times correspondent continues, "that Emperor William  was at Brussels Wednesday evening, staying at  the Hotel Believue the same night. He appointed  Gen. von Luttwitz governor of Belgium. Crown  Prince Frederick William gave a banquet at the  Royal palace at Laaken Wednesday evening."  Sept. 8, Washington.���������President Wilson today  signed a proclamation culling on the people of the  United States to pray for peace in Europe.

It is reported that0 both the Russians via Archangel and the Indian contingent have reached the  front, and are now fighting witfo the Allies.

London:���������Canada is urged by the Paily Telegraph to- appropriate $35,000,000 for tbe navy.

Sept. 9, Berlin.���������(By wireless)���������Official announcement was; made today at army headquarters that the French fortress of Maubeuge on the  Sambre river had fallen and that 40,000 prisoners, including four generals and 400 guns, had  been captured.  PRICKING THE QERMAI^ BUBBLE  " We hear and read much about the  vast German dye trade.  Rightly so.  The products of the German dye.  factories have been an important factor in the world's commerce.  They enter largely into' the manufacture of all colored fabrics.  '  ���������' '.������������������    ���������'*  It  has  suited  the  world  to  allow  Germany to supply its industries  with dye stuffs, but the war will end  this condition.  Each country will in future be independent of Germany's Dye Works,  and manufacture its own requirements. '   _   . .  England was the original field (in  modern times) for dye experiments,  and an Englishman discovered that  dyes could be made from coal tar..  In 1856, Sir William Henry Perkin'l  invented and prepared for the world  the first aniline dye, namely the purple coloring matter, mauve.    ,  The discovery of other brilliant aniline dye stuffs followed in rapid succession.  As a result of Germany declaring  war on Great Britain, the latter will  cancel all German patents.  ���������:- 'The ^United States will build ai),  number of large dye factories, _o that  ���������jn a short time this continent will be  independent of Germany in this regard. ,  Many of the colored fabrics, heretofore imported from European countries, will be made in Canada.'  Sir William Henry Perkin, the famous English chemist, was born in  London on the 12th of March, 1838.  Attending the City of London  school, he devoted all his spare time  to chemistry, and on leaving in 1853;  entered the Royal College of Chemistry.       "   ��������� ".���������'-��������� ", ' '������������������.  In the attempt to produce quinine  artificially he was unsuccessful, but  the observations he made in the  course of his experiments induced him  early in 1856 to try the effect of  treating aniline sulphate with bichromate of potash.  The result was a precipitate, aniline black, from which he. obtained  the coloring .matter subsequently,  known as aniline blue or mauve.  He lost no time in bringing this  substance before the    managers    of  Pullar's dye works, Perth, and -they  expressed a favorable opinion of it.  Thus encouraged, he took out a  atent for his process, and leaving the  ollege of Chemistry, a boy of 18, he  roceeded, with the aid of his father  nd brother, to erect works at Green--  rd, -near Harrow; for the manufacture of-the newly discovered coloring-  matter and by the end of 1857    the  works were in operation.  \  That date may therefore be reckoned as that of the foundation of the  Coiri Tar color industry, whiich has :  since.attained such important dimen- V  sionis.  ��������� ������������������ '  Perkin also had a large share in the  introduction of artificial alizarin, the  red dye of the madder root.  C. Graebe and C. T. Liebermann in  1868 prepared that substance syn-  thetially from anthracene, but their ;  process! was not practicable'���������- on a,  large scale, and it was left to Dr.  Perkin to patent a method that was  commercially valuable.  This he 1869, thus securing  for the Greenford Green works a  monopoly of alizarin manufacture for  several years.  POLICEMAN X--A WEIRD POEM  Above is the title of a poem written  by John Oxeriham in 1898 and published last year by Dent & Sons in a  little volume of verse entitled "Bees  in Amber."

Tibetans Offer Troops.  "The Dalai Lama of Tibet has offered 1,000  Tibetan troops for service under the British Government'. His Holiness also states that Lamas innumerable throughout the length and breadth of  Tibet are offering prayers for the success of the  British arms arid for the happiness of the souls  of all the victims of the war. The same spirit has  prevailed throughout ail British India. Hundreds  of telegrams and letters have been received by the  Viceroy expressing loyalty and a desire to serve  the government either in the field or by co-operation in-India.  Mr. Roberts added that innumerable offers  are made by chiefs who happen at present to be in  Europe. TheVGaekwar of-Baroda and. the Maharajah of B har at, to name two only, had placed  the whole resources of their states at the disposal  .of His Majesty's Government. The Indian community in England, including1 Indian students,  had made loyal offers of their services. Mr. Roberts concluded:  "I feel confident that the House and the country will feel a deep appreciation of this magnificent demonstration of loyalty with which the  princes and the people of India have identified  themselves, with the cause of the Empire."!1  This is surely a sufficient reply to the Kaiser's  threat of stirring up strife for Britain in India,  Egypt andPersia.   , -V-  Ottawa.--An order-in-council of vital interest  to Vancouver was passed by the cabinet Saturday;' approving the contract for a subsidy for the  Amalgamated Engineering Works, Ltd., of British Columbia, for the construction of modern  drydocks at Vancouver, to cost $6,500,000. The  financing was completed in London before the  war broke out, so that as soon as a few details  are completed, work on the prospect can be  started.  Credit for the cabinet's deciding to put through  this important contract at -this, jucture is given  to Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P. for Vancouver, who  has been pressing the matter with all his energy  during the past few weeks. Hon. Robert Rogers,  minister of public works, has shown the greatest  interest in the. project and has heartily co-operated with Mr. Stevens. ���������*"���������_/;  The report of the engineer, who has been investigating, provides for a firstrdass modern dry-  dock at Vancouver, capable of handling the largest ocean steamers or British warships. The dry-  dock will be 1150 feet long and 100 feet wide <and  capable of being divided into two sections, one  650 feet long and the other 500 feet. The sub:'  sidy will guarantee interest on $5,500,000, the  maximum allowed under the drydocks subsidy  act, at 4 per cent, for 35 years.  The Right Rev. W.L.

C, yesterday, when, telling how his three sons  had insisted on taking active part  in the. present war.  Mr; Greenshields yesterday received  a cablegram from his eldest son,  Charles, who was in Paris, to say  that he had enlisted to fight for the  French, and was leaving at once with  his regiment for Rouen. The second  son, Melville, has left for Valcartier  with the Montreal contingent, and the  third, Gordon, despite the fact that he  has recently undergone^ an operation,  and against the advice of his doctor,  insists also,on going to the fornt.  All the younger members of Mr.  Greenshields' family will thus be  among the fighters.

R. Larmier. It was as follows, and makes  curious reading today:���������  "Wilhelm II., born at Berlin, Thursday, January 27, 1859. The conjunction of Saturn, Mars, and Taurus predicts the fall of the House of Hohen-  zollern ahd of the German Empire in  1913 or 1914. Jupiter predicts that  Wilhelm II. is the last German Emperor of the House of Hohenzollern.  If there is war in 1914 between France  and Germany, France'wil be victorious."  The lines containing these words  are to be found on pages 521 and 522  of the publication quoted. _  We've shut -the    gates    by    Dover  Straits,  And North, where the tides run free,  Cheek by jowl, our watchdogs prowl,.

THE METHOD OF  THE ZEPPELIN  London.���������The method used by  /_e_>pelin airships in d topiary foonivs  has been' described as follows by an  English refugee who has just arrived  here from Belgium.  "The dirigible hovers over its object, at sufficient altitude to keep it  out of the range of the enemy's guns.  At the same time it lowers a steel  cage attached to a steel wire rope  2,000 or 3,000 feet long. This cage is  divided into compartments, and it  carries one man whose duty it is to  thow down the bombs. The cage is  sufficiently strong to make rifle fire  against it ineffective, and because of  its small size and the fact that it is  kept constantly in motion it is very  difficult for heavy guns to hit it."  ������������������������������������...������..������.. ������.. *���������*,*,���������*;���������*:*���������:*,������,*.,.   ,a*,* ������.*<*<*���������<t*/.������ * a * A* ****** A * i.#  <��������� -       *  *  l CHOICE NEW HAY POR SALE  ���������AT ���������  F.

The Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, often referred to unofficially as the Dual Monarchy,; consist* of two separate and indepen-  ' dent states. Each has its own parliament and its own government  with a head common to both,  bearing the title of Emperor of  Austria and Apostolic King of  Hungary. Certain affairs" affecting both halves of the Monarchy  are administered in common.  These comprise foreign ] affairs,  the army and navy and finance,  in so far as it concerns joint expenditure.  , The Monarchy is bounded on  the east by Russia; on the south  by Roumania, Servia and Montenegro ; on the west by the Adriatic' Sea, Italy, Switzerland and  the German Empire and Russia.  Its area, not including the principalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina; is 299,977 square miles,  being one-sixteenth of the> whole  of Europe.  Bosnia and Herzegovina; which  were annexed in 1908, have an  area, of 19,602 sq. miles, and a  population of 1,591,000.  ~ " There is a large oversea emigration which gotes mostly to the  United States. In 1906, 169,202  - people  left Hungary,  partly on  - account   of -the poverty   of  the  masses, and partly on account of  resentment of subject races at  the domination of the Magyars.  In Austria, the three principal  races of Europe are all represented���������Teutonic, Slavonic and the  Latin. The Slavonic race is numerically the principal, but it is  divided into a number of peoples,  separated from each other, and  differing in language, religion1,  traditions' and customs, and the  race does not possess a national  unity. The Germans constitute  the most numerous nationality,  and play the principal role in the  political life of the country. >  Hungary also is inhabited by  a complex population. The Magyars, who occupy almost exclusively the fertile central plain,  are the most numerous and the  dominant <race. Around them  other races are located in groups.  The bulk of. the Austro-Hun-  garian foreign trade is with the  German Empire, the proportion  being 40 per cent, of the imports  and 60 per cent, of the exports.  Next in importance comes Great  Britain, and then India, Italy,  the United States, Russia, France,  Switzerland and South America  in about the order named. The  principal imports are cotton and  cotton  goods, wool and woollen  Yon Can; Save Money  By Using      ,  TANGO STREET CAR TICKETS  , Eight 1���������T 25 Cents  THIS IS HOW iT W0RKS OUT  32 Bides at  a 5 cent Ux*  >16p  32 Bides on  TangoTickets  $1.00  Your,Saving on  . $T Investment  60c  NOW ON SAfcE ON: ADL B.

The principal  exports are wood, sugar, cattle,  glassware, iron and ironware,  eggs, cereals, millinery and  fancy goods, earthenware and  pottery, and leather goods.  Austria is a country about  twice the size of England and  Wales, and, after Switzerland,  the ifiost mountainous country in  Europe. Only 25 per cent, of the  area is occupied by plains, of  which the largest .is the extension  of the great Russian plain which  constitutes the major part of the  province of Galicia. Along the  principal rivers there are plains  of more or less magnitude possessing very fertile soil.  The highlands of Austria form  part of the great watershed of  Europe, which divides the waters  flowing into the North Sea and  the Baltic from those flowing into the Mediterranean or the Black  Sea, The principal rivers flowing  through its territory are the Danube, Dneister, -, Vistula, Oder,  Elbe. The Rhine fldws only for a  short distance through Austria.  All the above rivers find their  outlets to the sea in other countries, while the Danube also has  its source in another .country. Rising in the Black Forest in Germany, the Danube flows eastward  by a very meandering .course,  1,800 miles long, into the Black  Sea. Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade are upon its banks, and  by means of many tributaries it  drains southern" Germany, f large  portions of AustriarHungary, Servia, Bulgaria, and Roumania. Few  rivers in the world carry a greater commerce than the Danube or  have played so important a part  in history. ,  The climate of Austria varies  greatly on account of the differences in elevation of its surface.  Along the Adriatic, the winters  are short and the seasons equable, and in the winter time snow  seldom falls. The vine and corn  are everywhere cultivated; * ^as  well as the o'live and other products of the south. In the'central  zone the winters- are more severe and' the summers hotter. The  vine - and corn are cultivated in  favorable locations, and ��������� wheat  and other grains are .generally  grown. The northern zone comprises, Bohemia, N. Moravia. Sil  esia and Galicia. There -the winters are long and cold, and the  principal cropa are wheat, bar  ley, oats, rye, hemp and flax. The  rainfall averages 20 to 24 inches,  but in the vicinity of the Alps,  it sometimes exceeds 60 inches.  The forests of Austria consti  tute one'of the great sources of  wealth, occupying over one-third  of the-whole productive area. Tall  coniferous, forests predominate  Forestry is carried on in a thoroughly scientific manner.  Austria is exceedingly rich in  minerals, possessing every useful  metal except platinum. There are  also salt, petroleum, marble, roofing-slate, porcelain earth, potter's clay, precious stones, and  tbe precious metals. Iron of excellent quality is extracted in  large quantities. The output of  the coal mines was in 1900, 32,-  500,000 tons. In"1902rl56,000 persons were employed in mining,  smelting and in the extraction of  salt. '   ���������  The country is provided, with  an extensive network of railways,  and industrial section being specially favored. They have a total length of 13,600 miles, all being state operated and for the  most part state owned.  Austria's coast line on the  Adriatic is only about a thousand  miles in extent. It is indented  with many bays and safe harbors,  and there are numerous ports,  including Trieste and Pola, the  The productive land of Austria  covers over ninety per cent, of  the total divided about as follows: Arable land, 37.6 per cent.,  woodland, 34.6 per cent., pasture  and meadow, 25.2 per cent., the  balance1 'being divided between  garden, vineyards and undrained  land. The principal products are  wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn,  potatoes, and sugar beets. Next  come buckwheat, rape, hemp, flax  chicory, tobacco and hops. In the  north, in Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia and Galicia, much land has  been diverted-from wheat growing to the cultivation of sugar  beets. The growth and manufacture of tobacco is a government  monopoly.  The quantity of cereals raised  is not entirely sufficient for home  requirements, and large amounts  of wheat and corn are imported  from Hungary. Barley and oats  are exported:  Austria is distinguished for  the superiority of its horses. For  their improvement, numerous  studs exist all over the country.  As a cattle rearing country it is  not remarkable. In the Alpine  foothill region of Upper Austria  cattle breeding and dairy farming have attained a great degree  of development.  The* manufacturing industries  of Austria have their greatest  development in the basin of the  Danube, and in the country extending northward to the German  border. This territory comprises  the provinces of Lower'Austria,  Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia.  Lower Austria,, of which the city  of Vienna is the centre, is the  most densely populated province,  and the inhabitants are almost  exclusively of German stock. The  following are the principal  branches of industry carried on  in northern Austria: textiles, including cottons, woollens, silk,  flax and hemp, iron and steel  manufacturing, flour, milling,  brewing and distilling, leather,  paper, sugar, glass, porcelain,  earthenware, chemicals, scientific  surgical and musical instruments.  In Galicia, petroleum refining and  the manufacture of petroleum  products are important. Glass  making, for which Bohemia is  celebrated, is one of Austria's  oldest industries, and.other districts are noted for porcelain and  earthenware. The manufacture of  wooden articles is widespread  and varied. The coarser kinds of  woollen and linen goods' 'are made  in the people's homes all over  the country, and in certain sections, toys, embroidery' and lace  are house industries.  Vienna in Lower Austria and  Prague in Bohemia are the leading industrial cities. Vienna is a  centre for _theiproduction of_ the  following: Silk goods, shawls, machinery, railway rolling stock,  scientific and musical instruments  boots and shoes, furniture, gloves,  chemicals, buttons, and also for  Bonnie's Seeds and All Kinds of Seed Potatoes  Delta Grain and Feed Store  1647 Main Street  Our Specialty,  Potatoes and All Kinds, of Vegetables -"  Free City  Delivery  Phone: Fairmont 2144.      ,        Vancouver, B.

Including  families and domestic servants,  7,000,000 were dependent on industry for their livelihood. .   .  Bnngary  Hungary is composed of extensive central plains surrounded by  high mountains, the heavily-wooded Carpathians and the< Trans-  ylvanian Alps. These" plains cover  an area of. 43,000 square miles  out of- a. total area of 125,402 sq.  miles. The' central plains are intersected by the rivers Danube,  and Theiss, and the soil is in general very rich and productive.  * The franchise of Hungary is  said to be the most illiberal in  Europe, being enjoyed by only  6 per cent. of. tbe population.  The _working-classes ate wholly  unrepresented in parliament.  The Jews monopolize a large  portion* of the country's trade.  They are, with the Germans, the  chief employers of labor, and control not only the finances, but to  a great extent the government  and press of the country. The  soil, owing to the improvidence  of the landowners and the poverty of the peasants is gradually  passing into their hands.  The Hungarian climate is cold  in winter and hot in summer. In  the Carpathian Highlands., the  winters are long and severe, while  in the summer the central .plains  are almost tropical. There during  the hot months it rains but seldom and droughts are not infrequent. In the mountains the rainfall is heavier.  In Hunyar, agriculture is preeminent. Nearly 96 per" cent, of  the total population derive their  income from agriculture, forestry, horticulture and allied pursuits.  The progress of agriculture has  been marked bf recent years. Not  only has more land been brought  under cultivation, but agricultural methods have been improved  through more intensive cultivation, the use of the most modern  implements, and the application  of scientific knowledge.  Owing to its wide stretches of  pasture land, Hungary is admirably suited for cattle and sheep  raising. Sheep are not raised as  extensively as cattle,. and are  tending rapidly to decrease. Pigs  are reared dn large, numbers all  over the country. Horse-breeding  is an important branch of stock-  raising, large numbers of horses  being exported annually to Germany, Austria, Italy and France.  English stock has been imported  by the government to improve the  breed, and state studs supported  by parliamentary grants, have  been established. Similar, care h-as  been bestowed in improving the  breed of horned cattle.    ,  The export trade in cattle is  considerable. Pigs .are exported'  almost exclusively to Austria.  Sheep are not exported, but there  is a considerable export trade in  wool, and also in geese and eggs.  Minerals  Hungary is'one of the richest  countries in Europe as regards  both the variety and extent of  its" mineral wealth/Among the  chief mineral products are coal,,  sulphur, alum; soda, saltpetre,  iron, lead, copper, zinc, gold,  silver, and mercury, and precious  stones.- The salt mines are a  state monopoly. The value of  mining and smelting production  amounts to about $25,000,000 and  ther number of persons engaged  is over 70,000.  ,. Manufactures ���������  ' The principal , manufacturing  industry of Hungary is flour-milling, and the products form Nthe  principal - article of export. In  1905 there were # 1845 mills in  operation.Budapest is the centre  of the industry, but large mills  are established in many towns,  and smaller ones throughout the  country. Brewing and distilling,  the manufacture of sugar from  beets, tobacco, and other branches  of industry connected with agriculture, have made great development.  Transportation  In the sparsely populated parts  of the kingdom, the high road is  still the only means of communication. Elsewhere, the railways  are fairly adequate, but lack of  means of communication has retarded the development of forest  industries and of manufactures  to some extent.  With only about one hundred  miles of sea coast on the Adriatic, Hungary possesses only one  important sea-ports, that of Pi-  ume, as a direct outlet by sea  .for its products.
