Relief Expedition Planned by 
Lord Kitchener and French 
Government — Facts Relat- 
ing to Dardanelles Attempt. 

J^UNUON, Nov. 16.— In making his 
l>i-omi«vd statement in the House of 
Cumniona today, lit. Hon. Winston 
Hpencer Cburchill dealt with episodes 
during his tenure of ofDce as head of 
tb« Admiralty rather than with his 
resignation. He said his letter to Mr. 
Asqulth gave fully and truthfully the 
reaMona which had led him to ask for a 
release from the Uovernment. Thes» 
reasons did not apply to any other 

member of the Cabinet who was not In 
the war council. ' 

Turning to the naval battle off the 
Chilean Coast last year, Mr. ChurcUlH 
aald he had been In full agreement With 
his e.ipert advisers. The Admiralty's 
diBpoMltion of warsliips, he aald, had 
been sound and the best under the 
circumstances. Documentary evidence 
would make this c\^ar, without de- 
tracting from the gallantry and devo- 
tion of Kear-Admiral Hlr phriatopher 
Cradoek, who lost his life when the 
Uood Hope went down. 

The suggestion that he had ' over- 
ruled his naval advlaurs and kept the 
old cruisers Ilog'ue, Cressy and Abou- 
klr at a^a, thus causing their destruc- 
tion by a German aubmarlne last year, 
was characterised by Mr. Churchill as 
untrut. He said it was for Rt Hon. A. 
J. Balfour, the present First Lord of 
the Admiralty, to determine whether 
the papers abonld be published. He 
himself bad no desire to press for the 
publication of papers which might pre- 
judice those now in the service.

Hegarding the Antwerp expedition, 
Mr. Churchill said it bad not been ar- 
ranged by htm, but had been planned 
by fiWi |Carshal, Kitchener and the 
Krenc^ OoTemmenir ttt was not con- 
cerned with It nor consulted until the 
plans had bec^ advanced a long way 
and until the marines were moving ur 
were under orders. 

"At a midnight conference 1 learned 
that plans for sending a rnlievlng army 
to Antwerp, already far advanced, were 
being considered In concert by Field 
Marshal Kitchener and the K^n(h Oov- 
ernment." Mr. Churchill continued, "but 
that they had not yet reached the point 
where dcflnlte efforts or promises eduld 
be made to the Belgian Qovernment. 
The same afternoon the Belgian Qov- 
rnment had telegraphed their decision 
to evacaate the city with the field army 
and abandon the defence. The British 
Uovernment was extremely distressed 
by this decision, as it seemed everything 
wa^ going to be thrown nway for the 
sake of throe jtr four days of con- 
tinued rrslstanre. 

"I offered to go to Antwerp to re- 
port on the situation, and tht- offer 
was aoceptod. I crossed Immediately. 
and the next day, after consultation 
With the Belgian Oovernment and IBrlt- 
tsh staff officers at Antwerp. I proposed 
by telegraph that the Belgians should 
continue resistance and that the British 
Mnd PVench Uovernments should say 
within three days whether or not they 
could send a relieving force. 
*• fBgOM BsttcsaiaBt 

"In the event that they were not able 
to send a relieving force, Ureat Dritatn 
was in any ease to send to Orient and 
nther points at the time of the retreat, 
Uritish troops to insure the safe re- 
tirement or~ the Belgians. . Simultan- 
eously Qreat Britain was to encouraxe 
the defence of Antwerp by sending 
naval guns and a naval brigade, and 
taking other minor measures. These 
proposals were accepted by both Oov- 
ernmcnts, ^ 

"I was Informed of the dimensions 
of the army to be sent from communi- 
cations from Belgium, and was told 
to do everything possible to maintain the 
defence meanwhile. This I did without 
regard to the conssqttencss In any di- 

Mr. Churohlll argued that thesa 
operations should not be regarded as 
an event which led only to misfortune. 
H« believed that military history would 
hold that the consequences conduced 
to the advantage of others In the West,» 
as the operations led the Germans to 
beilove a largo army was arriving from 
the ata. 

^••ft Is true.- said Mr*. Churchill, "that 
ttiaae operations wars begun too tale, 
but that was not my fault. On Sep- 
tamtMr C nearly a moi^th before, I drew 
*.h« attention of Premier Asqulth. Rarl 
Kitchener and 81r Bdward Orey to the 
'langercus situatl'.n developing at Ant- 
werp and the ^rave consequences to 
Admlrattv imprests which the loss of 
the fortress would entail." 

Mr. Chuachin said he had suggeated 
that a arritorlal division should be 
•ant, andllia^ made other proposals.

this enterprise was profoundly and ela-

exparta and technical minds, and that 
In no drcumntances eould It t>e regard- 
ad as having been undertaken with care-

namarklng that he political situation 
In Moutheastern Europe last Uecembar 
was stagnant, and torpid, and that the 
current of '>pinlon favorable to the 
Allies flowed sluggishly, or even ebbed, 
Mr. Churchill proceeded: 

"In Italy even, tha negotiations made 
little progress and at the same time 
the Russian Government ask«d if some 
action against Turkrf In the Mediter- 
ranean was nrt possible to relieve the 
pressure- on the Csucasus. in <;onse- 
qucnces of the Foreign and War Offices 
I directed the attention of the First 
Sea Lord and other naval officers to 
the possibility of action In Turkish 
waters. We asked the War Office what 
number of troops would be necessary 
to seUe Galllpoli by joint amphibious 
co-orOlnatlon, and on Nov. 30 I ' sent 
a message to Lord Kitchener offerin? 
to congregate transports for -i 0,000 men 
in Eigypt, as I could see the situation 
davoloplng In the direction of an at- 
tack In the Mediterranean on the Tur- 
kish Kmpire. We were informed that 
no array waa available."

First Sea Lord, the opinion that the 
Dardanelles could not be rushed, but 
could be rednced^y a regular, sustained 
naval bombardment, wirlch Mr. Cliurch- 
111 said, made a profound impression 
on his mind — and knowing that Admiral 
Lord Fisher (former Sea Liord) was 
strongly in fnvor of some action In 
Turkish waters, Mr. Churchill had an 
Interview on January 28th with Premier 
Asqulth and 'Lord Fisher, at which 
he gathered the impression that 
Lord Flslier consented to a purely nav- 
al attack on the Dardanelles'. The 
French staff also approved, and the 
operations were /Indertaken, with the 
results already known. 

"We lost two old vessels," remarked 
Mr. Chucrhlll. "which. If they bad not 
been lost In the Dardanelles would 
have been rusting Id -some foreign 

Mr. Churchill said that he wanted 
to resume purely naval operations, but 
Lord Fisher opposed this. They could 
not agree, and, added the former First 
Lord, "the month which passed between 
the cessatloh of the naval operatloos 
and tha opening of tha military oper- 
ations was ana of the laast plaasanc 
I ««*r apant te mr Itf a."

He complained that he had not re- 
ceived from the I-1rst Sea Lord the 
clear guidance 'before, or the firm sup- 
port after, to which ha was entitled. 

"Thare is no place In war for «iis-* 
glvlngs or recedlngs after a decision 
is taken," he continued. "If the I<Mrst 
Sea Lord did not approve the opera- 
tions, he should have refused his con- 
sent. If he had refused, they would 
not have taken place. Then waa the 
tIma for his resignation." 

Mr. Churchill accepted general minis- 
terial responsibility, subject to his 
written a>id recorded opinions, adding: 

"If we had known what we now know 
of the cost of the military operations, 
I cannot think that anyone would have 
hesitated to face the loss of prestlgu 
Involved by breaking off the opera- 

Pointing out that the UrItish army 
had stood all Summer within a few 
miles of a decisive victory, Mr. Chur- 
chill rmphasised that on no other 
front could an equal advance provide 
comparable strategic results. It would 
have settled the fate of the Turkish 
army on the promontory; might have 
determined the attitude of the Balkans: 
cut off Germany from the I<:ast, and 
saved Serbia. Throughout the year he 
had urged the Government to do all it 
cculd In the West, but In any case to 
take Constantinople while , time re- 

"Wa are passing thrdugh a bad time,

Premier Asqulth. in paying tribute to 
Mr. Churchill after the close of the tat- 
ter's speech, said that during his close 
aseoclation with him for years, he had 
slways found a wine councillor, a bril- 
liant colleague, and a faithful frtend.

OTTAWA, Soy. 15.— Mr. Qao. H. Brad- 
bury. M. P. for Selkirk, waa today gti- 
setted lleutenant-culoncl of the 108tli 
Overseas BatUlion. which he has of- 
fered to raise In his own county. Col. 
Bixidbury will command the regiment, 
and will go to tha front with the t>oys 
of his own county. 

The batulion will have perhaps the 
'lost litstoric mobilisation record in 
Canada, as It will be sUtlonad at Lower 
Fort Garry, the old Hudson's Bay fort 
on the Red River, half way between the 
city of Winnipeg and the town of Sel- 
kirk, and tha headquarters of Wolseley 
in ISTu. The fort is in a good state 
of Jkrescrvation. and orders were sent 
out today to have it flttetl up at once 
for troops. 

Mr. Bradbury was a member of the 
nrst cavalry corps raised in Ottawa, 
his home town, and was known ax an 
expert swordsman. At the time of the 
rebellion of 1885 he went West to take 
command of the mounted corps, hut as 
the regiment was not ready, he was 
placed In command «>f the transport 
with the title \)f captain, and was in 
charge until the rebellion was sup- 
I pressed.

An eloquent exposition of what la ut

peal for further sacrifices on the part 
Of Canadians, who, he said, were as 
much at war as the people of England 
Itself, were given by Sir Richard Mc- 
Brlde at the First Presbyterian Church 
on Sunday evening. The large audi- 
torium was packed to the doors. Dur- 
ing the course of the evening, a ser- 
vice of song was held. Mr. J. G. Brown 
read the lesson from the Scriptures,

Sir fflchard spoke with grea earnest- 
ness, and the rapt attention of the large 
audience cicarty Indicated he had made 
a powerful Impression upon his hear- 
ers. At the outset, he described what 
PrusBlantsm was as revealed in the evi- 
dence of German brutality since the 
outbreak of he war. In Belgium, the 
Germans had Invaded k peaceful, non- 
combatant country, laid It waste, and 
committed atrocities of the most >damn- 
Ing character; in Northern France, and 
afterwards in Poland, they had given 
other foul illustrations of the prin- 
ciples of Prussian dominance. On aea 
as well da on land they had carried on 
their fiendish work to the horror of 
all civilisation. Unspeakable outrages 
had been committed on helpless womenr 
and children. Innocent non-combatants, 
sleeping in peaceful homes in the heart 
of London had been cruelly murdered 
in their beds by the Zeppelin raiders: 
all of this without any military ad- 
vrntage whatever. Then to crown and 
cap thin record of infamy, they had 
cruelly murdered In cold blood a noble 
British woman, Mlsa Edith Cavell. 
whoso sole crime was she had listened 
to the Instincts of conscience in strick- 
en Belgium and thus brought down 
upon her head the wrath of the Prus- 
sian mailed fist.

"I took another look over Lang's 
Cove, tha site of the new drydock. 
which Is to >e one of tha largest' in

convinced th'it tha government made a

a natural l>asln which gives very easy 
access for ships of the largest draught

of Great Britain's intention to maintain 
a naval base here. With those consid- 
erations In mind you can underHtand 
that there is a large incentive to early 
action on the construction of the dry- 
dock, other than the grounds of politi- 
cal expediency, which our Liberal 
friend/ charge that we are always 
keeping In mind. With the close of the 
war, also, there will be great activity 
when shipping resumes Us normal 
courses. Great ships, larger than the 
present dock can accommodate, will 
come hare, and we must and will havia 
the accommodation for them. 

"For the first time since the ex-

already authorised a large expondlture

Mr.^J. A. D. McCurdy, the Canadian

In fact a reprsaenUtlva will go to tha

It waa not until Qeneral Joftre came to

been any avoidable delay in making pre-

ernment to proceed with the new lOo-

mally adopted aa ii part of thi; Uovcrn- 
inrnt'H scheme ol' work and the onija 
reauon for delay la the necessity ot 
providing- motii-y for more urgent pub-

quite clear that the necessary atructurea 
for housing the Btaff at the new Ob- 

scrvatory will be ' erected. We men- 
tioned the ncccaaity for doing thla in 
The Colonist last week. 

WhllA thesn mattera are of apaclal 
local Interest, Mr. Rogera fipoke of an- 
other Hubject. which la of great public 
importance. At the present time there 
is rcmarkablo industrial activity in 
many parts of Canada becAuae of the 
outlay in connection with the manufac- 
ture of war material. It may bo as- 
Huined that when peace comes, this 
will cease, and tho Minister of rubllc 
Worka recngnlaes it to be the duty of 
the ministry, of which bo is a member, 
to take whatever steps may be in ita 
power to prevent any hiatus between 
tho ceasatlon of war contracts and the 
general prosperity expeoted to follow 
lifter tho war. A very high degree of 
practical atateamunahlp will bo needed 
in dealing aatisfactorlly with thla diffi- 
cult subject. Wo are glad to know that 
ISIr Robert Borden and his colleaguea 
have already under consideration what 
fitcpa are moat likely to produce the de- 
sired result. The quostlon is one of tho 
most involved that a Canadian ministry 
haa ever had to' face.

that we mentioned the cenaorlng of tha

• Blr John Simon, Home Secretary. In 
r€'plylr»g to Mr. Outhwalte. said: "1 
understand that the gentleman at the 
fresH Bureau who cut out from the 
line 'the captains and the kings depart'

We dlaagreo with those who woulil

to do what lies In our power to Iirlng

there aro many of ua who cannot do so

In Poland, "is not of hatred, I>ut of

ences which Invariably assemble to 
hear hlni. his words hold no denuncia- 
tion for his enemies. He speaks, sim- 
ply of his mission. He tells with ifll 
tho poetry of diction whloh Is liis. all 
the paBslon;»<f elo<|ueuco which the In- 
tense love of -his country Inspires of 
that country's past glories; of what it 
has given to the woi'id In Its poets, 
painters, scientists, muslcianfl and phll- 
oBophers. Ho tells his hearerr of tho 
lofty ideals of the Pylish character, of 
his people's courage to fight for those 
ideals, even though It mean the death 
of the last patriot. He tells of the 
wonders of the cities of Poland, of tho 
reverent lovo of the people for the 
monuments of past greatness, of tlie 
profound faith, even of the little chil- 
dren, that the kingdom must again 
come into Us own. And then, without 
any Invective, but with a quietness that 
Is more deadly than tbe fiercest accusa- 
tion, he speaks of what the Inv.adlng 
hordes of the Clerinans have done to lil.s 
country. Simply, graphically he draw.-i 
the pictures of Kreat cities laid 
wast«. of people fleeing from burning 
villages empty-handed, starving, their 
little children dying In their arms; of 
peasants crowding Into the woods for 
lirotectlon, their only .shelter from cold 
and the rain and the snow being the 
leafless trees; tlielr only food the roots 
they find in the freezing ground, tho 
bark they scrape from the trees. Ho 
is campaigning In a neutral country, 
and perhaps for that season, he hesi- 
tates to poifr forth his t<oul In denun-

that his appeal has been wonderrni In

Further particulars of his discov- 
ery 'or. "Mumogen." the wonderful plant 
food made from bacterlzed peat, were 
given by Profe«aor W. B. Bottomley, be- 
fore tho Royal Botanio Society, in Lon- 

Professor Bottomley described hi" 
discovery, and said that the process con- 
sisted in the treatment of ordinary raw 
peat by means of Iwcterla, and within 
four or six days the peat had turned 
Into a black substance which, by anal- 
ysis, was revealed as containing flfty 
times as much valuable plant food ma- 
terial as ordinary manure. 

Tbe professor exhibited a large num- 
ber of flowers grown at Kew Gardens 
and vegetables grown In various parts

plained, had been produced in sand and 
potatoes in moss covered with a weak 
solution of the preparation. An acre 
of land treated with a ton of the peat 
produced 41. pur ceut more potatoes than 
similar land treated with eighty tone Of 
manure. ' From forty scarlet runner 
plants one and a half bushels of beans, 
averaging a foot long, had been ob- 
tained weekly, and while ordinarily- 
grown beans ceased to produce on Sep- 
tember 1, the peat-grown were still 
yielding big crops. One tomato plant 
gave 16 lbs. of fruit. ^

Officers and men of No. S Oenoral 
Hospital, Li4»ut.-Col. Hart commanding, 
which establishment was mobilised In 
Victoria and now Is at Shornclltre, had 
not been ordered abroad .on Ot:tober SO, 
according to a letter received yester- 
dsy from Pte. Frank Ounn. of the unit. 
He states, that, at that time, there was 
a lot of Ulk with regard to the irassl- 
blllty of a change at an early date and 
that all seemed agreed that "we are 
going to Serbiii." He observes, however, 
that he would not care to tak4 it too 
seriously, as "so many of these storios 
have come to nothing." 

He says. In part: 

"A number of patients came in the 
other day who had just arrived from 
Germany (exchanges), where they had 
been held as prisoners for some months. 
They told Khastly stories of their 
treatment. Three of them who had 
been operated on in Qsi-many had to go 
under the knife again to be fixed up 
properly. The German doctors had 
Sl.nply made sura of putting them out 
of business as fighting men. According 
to these poor chaps it hi not the prac- 
tice in Oermany to administer an 
aenesthetic to prisoners, no matter how 
severe the operj^tion." 

In another paragraph the writer says: 

"TiM other day we had a real, old- 
time wreck not more than a couple of 
hundred yards away. During a sttfl 
blow a little Dutch schooner piled up 
on the shore. It was quite exciting, 
watching It vainly trying to beat out 
into the channel. A line was 'rocketted' 
across the vessel and the crew brought 
ashore in a breeches-buoy." 

We should try to succeed by merit. 
not by favor. He who does well will 
always have patrons enough. — Plautus.

"hero" of ths occAsiun. The loud 
acclaim with which his name was re- 
ceived was only rivalled* by the an- 
tliUMia*iin which greeted the mention of 
Col. Itoss. Other offlceva, too. vere 
heartily cheered. Lieut. Macklntofth. un- 
til recently a .Sergt.-Msjor and also a 
member of the Northern contingents, 
being singled out for a special ovation. 
He has Just been promoted to a com-

in the minds of thos** present as to the 
popularity of the colonel's choice. 

After the substantial and dainty of- 
ferings of tlie menu had been fully en- 
Joyed, and the toSst to "His Majesty the 
King" had been drunk. Pte. Mont- 
gomery, the chairman, explaine<I that it 
had been thought fitting that the Cari- 
boo soldiers should have a social re- 
union before they went abroad and that 
they should endeKvor to indicate to 
their officers the good feeling existing 
among them and their dcternklnatton to 
"do their bit" In full measure. fie.

Battalion, delivered an Inspiring ad- 
<lr««a Althoug h he apologised on the 
grourid'lHar fKe lack of a University 
educattoiT prevented his doing Justiae, 
in rounded and sonorous periods, to the 
subject, his fluency and his refreshing, 
brogue made the points of his observa- 
tions forclbia and their delivery re- 
freshing. The Western Scots, ha said, 
were In existence as such to do their 
part in upholding the Integrity of the 
British Empire, to enforce a proper re- 
spect for the observance of sacred trea- 
ties, and to secure the liberties of the 
people for all time. With the necessity 
of maintaining these principles in their 
minds, and not merely for the love or 
fighting, the men of Cariboo had left 
their homes, their families and thelr 
llfe occupations, to come to Victoria to 
acquire a knowledge of modern warfai«. 

A short response having been made 
by Lieut. Meredith, "Our Quests" was 
proposed by Corpl. G. L. Peck. He re- 
ferred to the respect in which the ofTi- 
cers were held by the N. C. O.'s and 
men of the battalion. This, he said, 
was especially so of the men of Carl- 
boo. One of Shakespeare's great char- 
acters was made to say: "Lay on Mc- 
Duff: and damned be he who flrat calls 
hold: enough!" For his part, and that 
of his fellows he was sure, he would 
say: "I^ad on Col. Ross and damned 
b« the German, etc." 

rtaa Iiot of Vortlunaa ' 
In a short, but pleasing addrexs. 
Lieut. Ukeil responded, pointing out 
that some of the beat of the battalion 
a'ere numbered among the Cariboo men 
and that much wan owing to Lieut. Cook 
for having recruited such a tine lot of 
Northmen for the unit. Col. Ross, also, 
congratulated tlie hosts of the evening 
on the splendid showing they had made 
since their enlistment. They had be- 
haved splendidly and had develoi>ed 
Into an fine, soldiers as could be asked 
for. He told of the clrcumstancen lead- 
ing up to Lieut. Cook receiving permis- 
sion to get together his Cariboo drafts 
and often had congratulated hininelf on 
having succeeded In obtaining the con- 
sent of the O. O. C. to allow the pro- 
posal to bm carried through. .

to mobilise a C. E. F. Battalion, which 
will be known as the 131st. Its read-

now Is ui'cupled by the 60lh Regiment. 
Gordon Illshiandcia, the question of 
obtaining a suitable place fur the in- 
struction of the members of the Vic- 
toria Volunteer Reserve and other 
forces has arisen. It has been solved 
by obtaining permission from Messrs. 
Parfltt dros.. the contractors, for the 
use of the new Armory, which Is 
situated on Bay Street, near Douglas 

The latter structure is not yet com- 
plete and so has not been turned over 
to the Government. Messrs. Parfltt 
Bros., therefore, are responsible and it 
la only tlirough their kindness that It 
Is possible to take any corps on the 
Hoor for purposes of drill. In lending 
the proposal their approval It has been 
distinctly understood that none of the 
officers' or men's quarters can be used. 
This stand has been taken because, 
while no harm can bo done by march- 
ing, over the large expanse of asphalt 
flooring; in the main auditorium, con- 
siderable damage might be Inflicted by 
the free use of the iinflnlshcd apart- 

.It Is 'understood that the contra<-tors 
will be In a position to formally trans- 
fer the Armory to the authorities short- 
ly after Christmas Day. Then every- 
thing "Wfll have been completed. Includ- 
ing the swimming bath. According to 
present . arrangements the building, at 
that time, will be taken possession of. 
temporarily, by the 103rd Overseas Bat- 
Ulion which Lleut.-Col. Hennlker, who 
raised and trained the Independent 
Squadron of B, C. Horse In this city. 
Is to command.

Mr. Justice Gregory oMda a aUrrlng 
appeal for volunteers for the 88th Fusi- 
liers' Overseas Battalion, and quoted 
to some extent from a letter written by 
Msjor-Oaneral A. W. Ciirrle, who apoka 
of the many gallant deeds done by tha 
second brigade, of which tha popular 
Victoria offlcer formerly had command. 
There whs an unquestioned neeassltr 
for more men to assist the soldiers that 
had gone before, to uphold the tradi- 
tion set. by tha second brigada and other 
splendid units. 

Tha Call a^ Vtm BtoaS 
"If there Is a drop of manhood In 
your veins," daclarad Col. Gregory, "you 
cannot ignore the call for vengaanca of 
the women and children of gallant llttla 
Belgium. You cannot remain daaf lo 
the blood of Ifidlth Cavall crying from 
the ground; you cannot forget your own 
fellow Canadians oruclfled on the cross 
as our Lord was. Wa dgra not expose 
our women to the hesrtlossness of Oar- 
man savages: we would be falsa l<i 
every instinct of a Briton and racraant 
to every tradition of our race If we 
fslled at this time to crush out thn 
Uornian spirit. To do thst we want all 
the men we can gat, wa want all the 
young men In this city who are physu.- 
slly fit; to every man who feels that h« 
can go, we want you." 

A member of the home guard wtto has 
nine brothers at tha front made a sup-

the events which lad up to the war and 
showed what a critical' poaltion tha 
Rmplra was now In.

men of military aga nf tha eommunlty. 
Iia aald-. "Do any ot the young man in 
this audience ever think when you see 
soldiers going away to tha front that 
they are going to nght for aaeh one of 
tha man at honM? Every man In good 
health, flt and able, is needed by tNa

of collecting from those who, through 
the recent campaign of the Rotary Cluh 
for members of the association, have 
Identified themselves with the work of 
the latter body. The funds thus ."le- 
cured will permit of the launching of 
the publicity cathpaign. which It is 
intended shall be carried out through- 
out the Prairie section in the effort to 
secure a largo part of the tourist traf- 
fic which will originate In that section 
this Winter. Southern railroads are 
now busy worltlng tip the trade there, 
with the object of securinif a heavy 
(Tanadinn travel to Callfoml.i. The Vic- 
toria Associatioit is determined that 
this traffic shall not be taken without 
an effort being made to direct It this 
way. Some of the new members se- 
cured through the Rotary Club cam- 
paign proml.ted to pay at once the full 
year's fee instead of paying one dollar 
per month. It Is hoped that many of 
them will adopt this method, aa it will 
provide stifflcient funds wherewith to 
immediately inaugurate the Prairie pttb- 
llclty campaign In Its entirety.

Final Stages in Important Ac-

City Solicitor Advises That 
Allegation That Damage 
Was D ue [0 City's Failure 
Should be Resisted. 

The final stages of the Pacific Coast 
Coal Mines Company. Ldmlted. case, the 
defendants In which are Mr. J. Arbuth- 
not et al, have been reached. Mr. K. P. 
I»av|n, K. C, surted his argument for 
the defence yesterday afternoon, and 
will conclude thia morning. In the fore- 
po«n, the taking of evidence was com- 
pleted, one of the last witnesaea being 
Mr. John Tonkin, president of the Pa- 
cific Coal MInca. 

When the proceedings opened, 
Mr Jamea Savage waa recalled by Mr. 
K V. Bodwell. K. C. Before the latter'a 
re-examination. Mr. \V. J. Taylor, K. C. 
waa permitted to ask a few questions. 
Mr. savage denied having been respon- 
Hlble for certain alleged statements 
made to either Messrs. Hill or Tonkin. 

Mr. Tonkin, who was next awom, 
eald that he had had several conversa- 
tscns with Mr. Uava^e with reference 
to Clause 17 of the agreement. He had 
Hbserted that the bonds of the deben- 
ture holders should have been pur- 
chased, in preference to their coming the company in the way they had. 
Tl this witness had agreed. A writ 
had be<!n Issued against the company 
about February, 1»13. by Mr. Griffiths 
11. Hughes for money owing him. Thia 
^ad been compromised by the payment 
cf $10,000 on account. Mr. Savage liad 
affirmed tiiat, if the shareholders had 
permitted them to foreclose, the com- 
pany would not have owed Mr. Hughes 
or anyone else. Mr. Hughes was not 
entitled to the money. He also assert- 
ed that If the Pacific Coast ColllerieB 
had not taken over the property It 
would have been ncceasary to resort to

AlderatMi Todd Ofejocta . to agorta of 

■••ten Bditore to Xaetnwt 


A declaration that he w.,« tired of 
having editors of K,antern publlcatioDs 
Instruct the people uf British i'olumbia 
as to what they nhoulil do waa made 
by Alderman Todd at laat night's meet- 
Inc of the City Council when a lengthy 
article, reproduced from the editorial 
columns of .he Municipal .luurnal. waa 
read. The article dealt wltti the im- 
perative necessity of giving ti.e aoldlers 
a proper reception on their return from 
the front; looking after their needa and 
supplementing their pensions by muni- 
cipal contributions or at least afford- 
ing municipal support In their efforts 
to aecure mor» adequate recognition 
than the government so far appears 
»tilln|t to cive. In forwarding It to t«ie 
Victoria council the «dlior of the 
Journal succeeted that this city shop Id 
■o on record aa heartily In ejmpathy 
with the argutiMnta ad%*anre<1. 

Alderman iniworth suggested titat the 
editor of the Journal l>^ Informed of 
what VlcOrlans ar« now doing In the 
way of welcoming returning aoidiers ' 
and looking alter their welfare. 

Th«'roun-*ll saw no rraaon why it 
should not generally agr«>e with th*- 
aentUnaaU e«*reMvd in the srttclo.

led. The light at the corner of I'Ih- 
gard and lJouKla« Streets will be moved 
east to tlie ml.blle of the bloik between 
Douglas and Ulanshard 8tre'..a. 

Xnaleipal aulldlag— Kighi ten<lers 
have been received for the construction 
of the proposed additions to the .4outh 
Saanlch Municipal quarters at the Royal 
Ojik. They will he conaldered at today's 
meeting of the Works Committee and. 
If any of the figures are believed tn 
be sufficiently rea!<onahle, the work will 
be ordered. 

•eTtgo Sxproprlation toTle*— Tlils 
niorning at II o'clock tin' Court of IJe- 
vlHlon on loc-al impiovoincnt by-laws 
will hold a aesslon at which the assess- 
ments for the I'alrfleld Uoad widening 
•scheme will be dealt with. The matter 
was before the court at a session last 
Thursday but was postponed until this 
morning. Strong arguments against 
the amount of the levy were th.en made. 
■any OloelBg— t'omplalnt of the fact 
that a number of second-hand storea In 
the i-ltyare keeping open after the legal 
closing hour was made to the City 
Council last night by a number of 
Vf»re proprietors who have been observ- 
ing the regulations. The complaint 
will bo dealt with by the legislative 
committee of the City Council, though 
apparently the city has no power. a« 
yet, to enforce early closing of that 
particular clasa of store. Instructions 
will be given to the police to f-nTorce 
the by-law regulations calling for the 
early closing of all premises named In 
the by-law. complaints of late having 
been made that snme such pretmaee 
have been keeping open. 

Denial that it was because of any 
failure on the part of the city to af- 
ford protection that premises were dam- 
aged during the anti-Oerman riots in 
May last will be made by the city in 
Ihe action which has recently been In- 
itiated by Messrs. Carl Loewenberg Us. 
Company, for damages amounting to City Solicitor Hannlngtou, in 
a written opinion of the staHis of the 
city in the case submitted to the City 
Council last night stated that the law 
Is well settled that the municipality is 
not responsibile for negligence or mis- 
conduct of Individual police olTlcers 
while performing their duties as such, 
inasmuch as such offlcera arc not ap- 
pointed by the City Council but by the 
Police Commissions and the City Coun- 
cil as such has no control over the po- 
lice officers. 

The city solicitor pointed out that 
Section 418 of the Municipal Act pro- 
vides that it is the duty of all muni- 
cipalities to generally maintain law and 
order within the limits of the muni- 
cipality, and Section 408 declares that 
it is the duty of the municipality to 
provide and maintain "sufficient" per- 
manent or special police. In the solici- 
tor's opinion that duty must be taken 
to extend only to making provision for 
the maintenance of law and order and a 
police force in view of ordinary cir- 
cumstances, and circumstances which 
could be reasonably foreaccn, but the 
statute does not go to the extent of re- 
quiring the city at all times 1(. make 
provision for unexpected and extraor- 
dinary oceurrences such as the riot on 
the evening of May 8. in tlie course of 
which Mr. Loewenbcrg claims to have 
.sulTered his damage. •> 

After setting out this opinion the 
city solicitor advised the Council that 
It shoulil resist the ilaini put In by Mr. 
Loewenberg. at the .same time pointing 
out that there are other collateral facts 
suggested by way of a defence. Irre- 
spective of the question of law involved 
In any such action, which will doubtless 
have to be considered. 

In the claim which Mr. Loewenberg's 
solicitor, Mr. \\ . J. Taylor. K. c., made 
against the cSt.v. the allegation was made 
that the former suffered loss through 
the Inadeiiuate stepa taken by the city 
to put an end to the rioting. 

A large number of other claims have 
already been put In to the city, but 
thr'claim of Mr. Loewenbcrg la the flrst 
to reach the courts.

"Evtiy act a headllner" la the 

populai verdict of the great PjinUges 

«h.)w this week, kix acts of the very 

best vaudevlIlL- are offered to the pulj- • 

lie by Manager Klce, Including probably 

the most exciting stage scene ever put 
on here. 

This Is "The Lion'a Bride," a spec- 
tacular feature, in which pantomime ia 
emidoyid to great effect, and in which 
a real forest bred lion roars from the j 
strong steel cage In which It prowls up ' 
and down In full view of the audience. 
The thrilling moment of the * rescue 
when the .voung Indian Prinee naves the 
younK maiden from the lion is moot 
enthralling and exciting. 

The Mysterious Carter is back again 
in Victoria, this time with some abso- 
lutely new and tanUllxIng mysteries. 
"The Crystal Casket of Creation"- is one 
of iheae. an^ "the Magical IHvorce," 
a novel conceit in which a humar. being 
Is matle Instantly to vanish, (,'arter '■ 
calls his act a "bouquet of mysteries," ' 
and it tertalnly juotinea Its name. ' 

Kelly, with his fine baritone, and thia i 
timp also a handnome lady partner, who i 
is something more even of a "fashion, 
plaf" than himself. !a hack again, and 
more popular than ever with a Victoria 
audience. I^st night he received a 
genuine ovation, and his big. clear vole« 
was never heard lo l>etter advantage. 
Hip rollicking Irish humor has just 
that grain of sentiment lo offaet. which 
is no often found In aons of Krln. 

Carsot. brothera. a pair of sensation- 
al athletes and hand-l>alane«ra open the 
bill and provide some scnaatlonal 
gymnastics. A big hand was given last 
night to William and Rankin, a pair of 
famous cometlats, who go through the 
wonderful feat of p«irformlng a 
quartette on only two Instrument*. 

Ifopklna and Axtell ?Mve one of i|)a 
funniest acts ever seen iiere. and It won 
lata of laughs last evening. Tt la

The witness had been present at a 
meeting In the Hotel Vancouver, among 
others in attendance being Messrs. Mc- and Savage, when there had been 
some discussion with regard to the ad- 
visability of letting Mr. MItton handle 
f2. 000.000 worth of the Pacific Coast 
Collieries" bonds with a view to retir- 
ing the first mortgage bondiL Messrs. 
McUavin and Savage then had expressed 
tlie opinion that it would have been the 
better business to have allowed them 
to have bouglit the syndicate's bonds. 
The deal which Messrs. MIchlncr and 
Wishard had permitted, namely, the ex- 
change of non-dlvldond paying stock 
for 6 per cent l>onds 4iad been the sub- 
ject of laughter. 

Vropertieg Bereloped 

The properties were described by Mr. 
Tonkin, who said that they had not 
teen allowed to fall Into poor condition. 
Me said that the surface equipment had 
i'cen much Improved, and that the mines 
generally were far more valuable than 
at any time. The Upper Douglas seam on 
the nichardaoii property, which con- 
tained about thirty aorea in the out- 
cropping, was practically ' exhausted. 
Practically nothing had been done to 
tlic lower Douglas and Wellington 
seams and development was taking 
place on the Marsden shaft. 

He could not remember anything hav- 
ing been paid to him by Mr. C H. 
llelsterman about the act to validate 
the agreement of 1911. He recalled, 
however, stating that the trust deed 
was worthless without the act validat- 
ing It, and that Mr. Hetsterman had |c(| 
him to believe that tliey had to get an 
act validating It. 

Mr. Piivis' argument, which already I 
I'ad occupied several hours, will be con- 
tinued this morning. It has been direct- 
ed chiefly to the alleged sufficiency of 
notice of the meeting of March 1. 1911, 
when the agreement waa put through, 
and of what 75 per cent of the share- 
holders meant He stated that It was 
not intended that It should mean 7.') 
per cent of the shareholders, but that 
percentage of the shareholdings. He 
maintained, however, that even if the 
other interpretation were put on the 
clause, the defendants had been within 
their rights. He took the position 
that. If it were admitted that there was 
some slight Irregularity in the pro- 
cedure, which was not the case, the 
state of mind of the shareholders at the 
time was favorable to the proposal by 
a very large majority. Authorities 
were quoted In support of the argument 
that, as long as the company was with- 
in itti legal rights and It could be 
shown that Its proposals could be shown 
to have the supiKirt oT the required ma- 
jority of the shares holders, the court 
would not Interfere. Whatever some 
of the stockholders might think now. 
there was no doubt that at the time 
of the agreement. It met with the ap- 
proval of the majority. If the entire 
statun quo at the tln^ of the passing 
of the agreement. Including the frame 
of mind of all the stockholders, could 
bt reverted to. the same action would 
be taken.

the funds of the aoclety, will occupy 
Its offlcea at 1210 Broad Street, opposite

Committee, which yeiterday establishc! 
Itself In the new quarters. The roomii 
are spacious, have a central location anrl 
should serve the purpose of the com- 
mittee ad.Tiirably, there being several 
roomii in the suite which are wall 
adapted for tlie holding of amall meet- 

At a recant meeting of the Victoria 
Patriotic .\'.d Society it was decldt^o 
that. In order to carry on work satlafac- 
tnrlly during the coming year, the sum 
of $200,000 would b« an absolute neces- 
sity. Tor the purpofte of organising 
a campaign for this amount, a meeting 
of memlMirs of the committee was held 
yesterday afternoon at 5 o'cloclc. A largo 
number of preliminary matters were 
discussed, and .preparations for a sys- 
tem of collecting wer8*~made. Those 
present at the meeting were'^Iessrs. A. 
C. Burdlck, A. C. Fraser, H. B. Thom- 
son, M.P.P., W. T. Williams and James 
U. mil. 

T»>e offlces will be open throughout 
the <lay, und contributions will be re- 
ceived at any time. The great Import- 
ance of the appeal which la being made 
by th» committee to the citizens of 
Victoria cannot be emphasised too much, 
and It In hoped that the efforts of the 
oommittea will meet with a ready 

underground work being laid on the 
local Improvement plan, the city would 
grade the roadway and temporarily 
macadam It. 8uch a roadway would 
last JTor two or three years, when the 
permanent scheme could be completed. 

Alderman Porter f pointed to other 
thoroughfares which have not yet been 
completed, as agreed with the owners, 
and he opined that Pandora Avenue 
owners had no right to be favored first. 

Alderman Todd pointed to the fact 
that the city is now contributing out of 
general revenue an amount of over |lf)0 
p e r mo i rth f or HHy y ears <owar da t h e 
work. The owners whose property lind 
been expropriated bad "sriueeze^i the 
last cent" out of the city, and were now 
no more entitled tu consideration than 
those on other delayed streets. 

However, Alderman McNeill's Hug;;es- 
tion that the city engineer be instrticteo 
to report upon the most feasible scheme 
of opening the street through to Fort 
Mtreet. witit estimaes of cost, was ap- 
proved. The report yvIU probably be 
before the streets committee on I-'rlday

The auggeatlon by Alderman McNeill 
at i«Bt night's meeting of the city coun- 
cil that the city should expeM money 
from out of general revenue towards 
putting through a temporary roadway 
on Pandora Avenue, from Pernwood 
Read to rort Street, was adversely crlti- 
otied by Alderman Todd. The latter 
declared that in ylew of the large price 
which owners on that aertlon had re- 
ceived for land expropriated by the city, 
•nd the diapooltlon shown by them not 
to oonalder the elty when the expropria- 
tion waa pat throuch. It waa no port 
of the clty'a duty now to expend money 
to beneflk thoo<^ owners. 

Aldormnn McXelU's suggestion was 
that in view of the virtual promise 
made four years ago by the city to the 
Pandora Avenue owners that the street 
would be opened through to Fort Street, 
the enKagements mode by owners all

Yesterday was a Fete Day among 
Belgians. In Victoria It was marked by 
atjother magnlflcent expression of gen- 
erosity on part of the public. In sub- 
mitting a national appeal for the cele- 
bration of the event In a manner such 
as would afford King Albert the great- 
est satisfaction, the Lord Mayor of 
I.K>ndon. as chairman of the National 
Committee for Relief of Belgium, sug- 
gested that enough be subscribed 
throughout the Kmpire to feed 3,000,000 
Belgian dependents for that day. vic- 
toria has provided for upwards of 35 OOO 
or two-thirds of the total number which 
daily apply to the canteens In the great 
city of Brussels. The total amount 
rallied as counted last night waa 
13,149.18. To this la to' be added the 
collections of several sub-commltfeea 
whose boxes were not available last 
night, and It Is expected that 
grand total will amount 

The ddy broke blustery but the volun- 
teer workers for the early morning were 
not deterred. Tho chilly wind which 
swept the stations and fretfully flut- 
tered tho miniature Belgian flags. »dded 
much to their discomfort, but 
aoemed to be thinking of that. The 
disadvantages under which the ladles 
worked were largely compensated for 
by pedestrians who awaited their turn 
to give a willing contrlbuUon. Before 
10 a.m. the supply of flags bad to be 
aupplemented by a committee of ladles 
working feverlahl]? at headquarters 
fashioning badges of ribbona 

Everyone, wherever one went, seemea 
to have but one thought-the noble 
aacr rice of a plucky nation for the 
Ideal., of liberty, it K^mea not so 
much a duty as a privilege lo serve 
on that day the Belgian nation, and a^ 
the day wore on there was hardly a 
•ingle pedestrian who di.l not bear 
Its colors. 

A cheque for |i,«oo was received 
from the Vancouver Portland Cement 
Company and its employees, and an- 
other for |10« from the firm of J. II 
Todd * Co., while many bills of large 
denomination figured In the collections. 

l*te In the afternoon, a man dUfl- 
dently approached a young lady at her 
station, with the words, "i have no 
money; i want you to take thl!«.'* and 
forcing his watch Into her hand, lost 
himself In the crowd before the as- 
tonished lady could reclaim her com- 

The spirit of self-sacrifice ' was 
marked amongst the small army ©f 
volunteera who assisted the committee. 
Many of these were young, ladies em- 
ployed 4a the various businesses of the 
city, and gave their time outside work- 
ing hours. There were Instances where 
these young ladles volunteered between 
«:3t and » a.m., gave half their lunch 
hour, and again assisted in the evening.

PerhnpH when the story of this time 
come-s to be written nothing will so 
redound to the credit of the women of 
Great Britain as the care that has 
•been taken of the soldiers who have 
returned wotinded from the battle. 
Vowhere have we heard of neglect or 
of mlnmanai^ement. 

That this has been possible Is owing 
In no !»miill degree to the organization 
of the V^ohintary .\ld Detachment in 
connection with the Territorial forces. 
Tn their formation and organization. 
Miss Haldane was a leader. .She is a 
sister of Lord Ilaldane and a woman 
of great ability, and of the higliest 
character. The war has shown that 
there are far more such women In thi 
Mother Land than was supposed eren 
by those who lived among them. But 
iMIss ll.ildane's virtues and talents were 
recognixed In time of peace, and helped 
to avert some of war's worst horrors. 

Taaeoaver's Way. 

In receiving and caring for wounded 
soldiers, Vancouver's task Ik not an 
easy one. The city Ih large, iind many 
of tho soldiers enlisted there come from 
a distance. The small conunitiee of 
ladies working under the commission Is 
very active and very ze.aous. .\mong 
these are Mrs. Flt^glbbon, Mrs. Proc- 
tor, Mi». Uuasell and Mrs. Duff Stew- 

Word Is received of the returning 
soldiers oil along the way from Quebec, 
and an officer on the train communi- 
cates with the commi'ttee at Kamloopa 
and reports ut the station. One of the 
returned soldiers has been engaged as 
an orderly, and he meets the uoai. It 
does not seem that Un Vancouver the 
Rublic! displays nearly as much inter- 
est in the returned men as is the case 
in Victoria. In one respect, and that 
an important one, provision has been 
made. There Is a club loom in the 
station comfortably furnished for the 
accommodation of any men who may 
be waiting to come over to Victoria, 
or to HO to any other point on the line, 
or meet friends In the city. As time 
goes on, this should prove very useful. 
Any men who do not need to come to 
the Convalescent Home provided for 
them at Ksciuimalt, and who have not 
homes In the city, are looked after till 
they And employment, or are provided 
for In Hom* way.sThls requires thought 
and time, but thp ladles are bent on 
preventing by every means In their 
power either mental anxiety or physi- 
cal suffering that lan be prevented. 
'I'he committee has tht> authority of the 
commissioner 'for the province to make 
any expenditure absolutely neoe.ohorj-, 
and they have, a host of friends who 
are ready to help them with such cloth- 
ing and conveyances as are needed for 
the 'disabled men. Some of the mem- 
t>ers of the committee feel that the 
officers and men stationed near the 
city might display more comradeship 
with 'those who have been compelled to 
abandon the task upon which they are 
about to enter. At the very liest tbe 
homecoming Is hard, hut the bearty 
greeting of men who understand some- 
thing of what they have been through 
will help as nothing else can to enable 
those who have no relatives In tbe 
city to bear the pain of returning dis- 
abled from the front. 

prisoners. Food and such things aa 
are needed can be bought more cheap- 
ly and dispatched more regularly If 
the money la sent to this department 
than when relatives purchase or make 
bread and such things as can be sent. 
In this country. Colonel Ilodgetts. 
who Is the dl^etlng officer In Kngland 
of the Red Cross, has exercised the au- 
thority given him by furnishing Mrs. 
Bulkely with all tbe supplies she re- 
quires. Of course, every individual 
contribution lessens the need of using 
the general fund: There is only too 
much evidence that every ounce of 
food sent to the men Is needed, and 
that their hope of future efflclency de- 
pends on supplies from home. The 
prison rations, according to the testi- 
mony of retnrned prisoners. Is suffici- 
ent for a bare subsistence for men who 
are strung .in.l well. Wounded or sick 
jnen, or those Midi ilcllcat e constltu- 
tFons, must endure great suffering. 

Two false reports, attributed to the 
enemy are vigorously denied by Col- 
onel Hodgetts and by the editor of 
The Bulletin. The one Is to the effect 
that the executive committee are high 
salaried officials. This Is absolutely 
false. N,ot a slngl.^ cent of lied Cross 
funds Is paid to any member of the 
executive committee. A more mis- 
chievous statement is that the aoclety 
sells socks to the men In the trenches. 
An Investigation has shown that no 
soldier could be found who had bought 
any article from any member of the Red 

All the Koods sent or purchased are 
distributed in three ways only. To the 
officers commanding the medical hospi- 
tals for the use of their patients, to 
Lady Drummond to distribute among 
the sick and wounded by a system of 
parcels, and to Mrs. * Rivers Bulkely 
and Mrs. Stlkenian to send to Canadian 
prisoners of war. Through these chan- 
nels, the sick, the wounded and the 
captive soldiers receive all that has 
been committed to the charge of the 
Canadian Red Cross. The testimony 
of the soldiers, and of all who have 
visited the Canadian hospitals, la that 
everything possible iu t>elng done to 
relieve suffering and to minister to the 
comfort of the men from the time they 
reach the ho.splUls till they are dis-

All over Canada the work of prepar- 
ing comforts for the wounded goes 
bravely on, but It Is to be doubted If 
anywhere. It." members are more dili- 
gent and elttcient than those who carry 
on the labor of love In Victoria. 

That the hospitals In England and 
Krance. eeubllshed either by the Can- 
adian military aothorlties or by the Itsd 
Cross, need all the help that can lie 
sent to them appears by the Oetobsr 
bulletin. We know that since that 
lime the needs, great even In Septem- 
ber, of the aalts which hAd gone to 
nurse at the Medtlorranean stations 
have rapidly lnerean«>d. With the sol- 
<ll«rs of the Allies nghtlnf in the Bal- 
kans, the grf<atest vigilance mnst be 
exercised to prevent sickness, which Is 
even more fatal than wounds. 

Another demand upon the Rett Cr«sa 
IS the needs of tho prisoners of war. 
A speelat dopartmeni, presided over by 
Mrs, Rivers Bulkely. has this work la 
ebarge. Supplies for prisoners sent out 
hy this dcpartmeat go direct to the 

A aad Mory. 

The world has grown used to hor- 
rors. The stories we are forced to be- 
lieve about Belgium and Armenl.i, the 
sinking of passenger ships, the bom- 
bardment of defenceless cities, the ter- 
rors of Zeppelin raids, the legal mur- 
der of II brave and compassionate Eng- 
lish woman. and many such 
things have burned Into our souls till 
most of UH tlioiight the capnclty for 
feeling had been destroyed. And yet, 
In the furrent issue of The .New York 
Outlook Mary Heaton Vorse tells a 
story which shows the reader that the 
springs of pity and Indignation have 
not dried up. 

She calls her article "Les Evacuees." 
and in it describes what has been co- 
Ing on In the provinces of France, 
which the Oermons have occupied for 
nearly a year. Only the barest out- 
line of her story can be given here, 
but it may be enough to direct atten- 
tion to methods which show the re- 
lentless character of those who would 
conquer th* world, it has to do with 
women and children and old men. 

.\fter the Oermans had established 
themselves In the northern provinces 
of T'rance, and the men who were not 
.nlready In the army were either killed 
or driven aa-ay, many of the women 
and their families continued their work 
on the land. They repaired, an well 
as they could, the damages done to 
their cottages, they tended the ilome.-"- 
tir animals that were left and prepar- 
ed to dig and hoe and plant In the old 
way. hearing as th.-y could the awful 
crlef of separation and bereavement. 
Mut evbn the consolation of toll was 
denied them. These women, with their 
children and their aged pamnts. were 
Interned In Oermany. Sent away In 
cattle trains, thev spent some time In 
military camps. Af/erwards thev were 
brought to Swltxerland lo be transport- 
ed to Southern France. A htmdred 
thousand of the Inhabitant.* of the in- 
vaded provinces have been evicted 

dispos.xessed of their homes since Feb- 
raary laM. The French and the writer 
of the article believes that the purpose 
of this banishment Is to prevent the 
recurrence of siTch a situation as that 
of .Msace-T.orraine. A depopulated 
land could be easily occupied by a fJer- 
man population. 

The .Swiss of the Ilttte town of 
SrhafThausen, where the refugees were 
landed, treated them with ovary kind- 
ness. The people of rranee hsd sent 
much clolhlag. Thev provided more, 
rtnd after they had been washed »nA 
fed and rested sent the poor people on 
their war. And this goes on day after 
day. Wfc who think we are generous, 
should fry to Imagine what It moans 
to the towns of this lutle neutral 
country to eatorUln a eonstant stream 

of guests coming In parties of live 
hundred at a time, penniless and desti- 
tute. This Is the feeling of the awiss 
women, as expressed by one of them: 
"Esch night as 1 see the trsln off, I 
must think what will happen to them, 
rhey will have no work in I->ance, 
they will get their allocation from the 
tJovernment, and bo (luartered with 
strange iteople. They are accustomed 
to work, tliey love their homes, and 
now their life la taken from them." 

More than a century and a half ago 
the British conquered Canada. No fam- 
ily who did not choose tu do so was 
Torccd to leave home, and the descend- 
ants of the conquered people prospered 
BH they had nevtr done before. The 
contrast between British and German 
methoila must be forced upon the at- 
tention of the French nation.

"The Face In tho Moonlight," which 
Is being shown at the Royal Victoria 
for the flrst three days of this week. Is 
based on the great Wm. A. Brady stage 
success In which Robert ManteM ap- 
peared for many seasons. 

Robert WofWlch starred in this pic- 
ture, which Is tbe nrst production for 
World film of the great French director. 
Mr. Albert Capellanl, whose record uf 
successful motion picture msklng ex- 
tends over a period of twelve years. S' 
career without parallel in the annals of 
the srt. 

II. Cooper Cliffe, Montsgu L^jve snd 
Btella Archer also appear In the pic- 
ture, which has thus one of the most 
powerful all-star casts ever seen In 
a motion picture. 

The period of the play Is Immediately 
after the Kren«?h Revolution, when Xs- 
poleon was coming Into power as Rm- 
peror. A young sHstoorat, a soldier. 
Is falsely accused of murder which his 
own TlllalnouB hsif brother. Rabat, 
committed. The half brothers do not 
know one another — ^^they have not heard 
of each other's existence, and the In- 
terest of this drama concerns liseif 
with this fhtal resemblance and the 
miseries and misfortunes Into which It 
leads the Innocent half brother. 

In the end Napoleon pardons the In- 
nocent yonng soldier, and Rabat, the 
murderer, ° goes to the scaffold to ex- 
piate hfs crimes. 

The film play Is replete with Intens^y 
dratnatlc situations, showing the hand 
of a raaater photo-dramatist.

whistle kept going. 

"The evidence showed, however, that 
neither the deep-sea or hand lead were 
uBd; this in most casualties of this 
nature would have been a very unpar- 
donable omission, but In this particular 
Instance the court is satisfied not only 
from the evidence adduced, of those 
competent to Judge, but from its own 
personal experience In the locality 
where the Calcha* stranded, thrt the 
lead wvuld have been little or no guide. 
WMrter Waa jnsttaod 

"There can be no doubt that an ex- 
cellent position was determined by 
bearings off Smith island before the 
log shut down and this fact, In the 
opinion of the court, Justified the mas- 
ter, Mr. Robert Thomas Jones, in pro- 
ceeding and attempting to make the 
entrance to Puget Sound, under tifie ex- 
isting conditions, more especially as 
when the fog shut down he was such 
a short disUnce off Point Wilson that 
he would naturally expect to pick up 
the sound of the fog alarm established 
on that point, which as a matter of 
fact' he did do. but unfortunately lost 
the sound shortly afterwards. 

"At the time of the stranding there 
was on board, in the person of Capt. 
W. Owens, a British Columbia pilot of 
long experience. The ship being In 
United States waters, however, Capt. 
Owens was. of course, outside of his 
pilot limits and would only be acting In 
an advisory capacity. 

«o Slaaae AttaoheA 

"Taking all the foregoing clrcuni- 
sftnees Into careful consideration, the 
court is of the opinion that no blame 
can be attached to the master, for the 
casualtr. and therefore returns him his 
certlilcate of competency, No. 017420. 
with the remark that It earnestly 
truats that unless his vessel is actually 
In charge of a proj>ery qualified pilot, 
for a definitely specified district, , and 
within the radius of that district, he 
will under like circumstances always 
rely, on his own judgment, and that of 
the duly appointed and qualllled navi- 
gating o^^cers of his own vessel. 

"The court in making this report docs 
not mean to imply in any sense that 
otherwise was done on this occasion. 

"So blame. In the opinion of the 
coOrt, can be attached to either Mr. 
liogers. the first mate, or Mr. Warren 
James, the third mate, the latter uf 
whom was the ofBoer of the watch at 
the time of the accident, their certlfi- 
cates are. therefore, returned to them. 

"With reference to Capt. W. OtVbns, 
the 2Vanalmo pilot, who took the ship 
away from Union Bay the previous 
night and who was still on board at the 
timf of (he stranding, the court can only 
look on hitn as a passenger in that 
locality. Further comment, therefore, 
in this connection is unnecessary. 

"In conclusion, tbe court wishes to 
place on record Its appreciation of the 
courtesy extended to it by tbe presence 
of Capt. Frank White and Capt K 
Ruger, who voluntarily came from Se- 
attle, to give the court. the benefit of 
their valuable and expert advfce."

a point and a half). Immediately this

point, and when the sound of the horn 
was again eventually heard It was de- 
scribed as deafening. About {•:20 a. m. 
a steamer passed the Calchas close to

vessel was. At 9:30 a. m., the ship, 
then steaming at an estimated speed 
of six knots by the Engines, but prob- 
ably less over ground owing to the very 
strong tide then running, grounded and 
remained fast. 

"The impact was described by the 
witnesses as being very sllglit. but 
nevertheless the ship received consid- 
erable damage and was not fioated till 
several hours afterwards, and then only 
after having been lightened. 

"The court is quite convinced that the 
position of the ship off Smith Island 
was a correct one, and from that posi- 
tion to the spot where she eventually 
stranded she must have been set Off 
her course gulte a considerable distance, 
which set, unfortiinately, could not be 
checked In any way owing to the dense 
fog then prevailing. 

Oave Bsport Advlee 

"The very lucid evidence of Capt. 
Frank White clearly showed that very 
frequently towards the last of an ebb 
tide there Is a considerable set coming 
out fron\ llosario Straits to the south 
and west, which set meets the tide com- 
ing out of Puget Sound in a northwest- 
erly direction somewhere In a vicinity 
nhout two miles X.W. of Point Wil- 
son, and after meeting, these two tides 
fiow together In a more or less true 
westerly dlrectinn. There can be no 
doubt. In the opinion of the court, that 
these sets affected the Calchas on this 
occasion to almost a remarkable desree, 
and It was due to these currents and to 
the fact of the H;)und of the fog alarm, 
after a certain time, not being heard 
that the 'accident happened. 
• "After the accident everything that 
could be done by seamen to prevent the 
vessel receiving further serious Injury, 
by laying out anchors and other meth- 
od.x, was (lone, ami the court Is of the 
opinion that a considerable amount of 
credit Is due to the master and his 
rrew In this fonnectlon. as also to Capt. 
!■:. Ruger. the Puget Sound pilot, who 
boarded the vossel a few minutes after 
the disaster and to whose effortH and 
abilities the ultimate fionting of the 
vessel was to a great extent due."

At an early hour yesterday morning,

rising tide, she floated easily, and is

Apparently, the sudden settling of the 
Mudlark at her moorings on the night

Running into the bowling south- 
easter as she was making the Straits, 
the Blue Funnel Line steamship Tal- 
thybius was subjected to a severe buf- 
feting at the conclusion of her voyage 
from tbe Far Kast. Upon the arrival 
of the big liner off William Head early 
yesterday raornlnx. the sea was running 
so high that It was Impossible for the 
quarantine officials to get aboard, and 
after several attempts to get alongside, 
the quarantine tender returned to the 
station and the Talthybius was ordered 
to proceed to the Outer Docks, while 
Or. Nelson nude the trip in by motor 
car, and granted the vessel a clean bill 
of health after she had taken up her 

Further trouble was experienced 
when the liner neared tbe Outer Docks 
because of the heavy sea running, and 
the ship was compelled to manoeuvre 
outside for some, time before she was 
In a position to come alongside. 

The storm experienced by the Tal- 
thybius off here was a fitting climax 
to a succession of gales encountered 
practically throughout the run across 
the Pacific. Captain CuUum commands 
a fine sea boat, however, and she was 
nursed througli without damage to 
either ship or cargo. 

One of the Chinese passengers was 
found to be missing shortly after the 
Talthybius sailed from Yokohama, and 
it is believed that he must have wan- 
dered out on deck and was washed 
overboard by one of the big seas which 
swept the ship. 
Oawlad Oaplaetty OMgo 

The Blue Funnel liner brought in a 
capacity cargo of Oriental merchan- 
dise for all ports. It Included a raw 
silk shipment valued at approximately 
91.000,000. An unusual shipment 
brought by the liner was 2,000 tons 
measurement of rubber shipped from 
Singapore to Hongkong and trans- 
shipped aboard the Talthybius for de- 
livery on this continent. 

The Talthybius brought 600 tons of 
general cargo for Victoria. She left at 
3 o'clock this morning for Seattle. 



C. P. R. Steamer Delayed Yes- 
terday Owing to Assistance 
Rendered to the Disabled 
Launch Off Marrowstone. 

Owing to delay experienced in render- 
ing asslstau'.e to a disabled launch, 
containing five people, south uf Mar- 
rowstone Point early yesterday morn- 
ing, when Inbound to Seattle from Van- 
couver, the Cam^tji^ Pacific steamer 
Princess Victoria. Y^n^^" Hickey, was 
considerably behind heh-^cbedulc In 
reaching Victoria yesterday-^ from .Se- 
attle. The Princess Vicoria docked 
here about 2 p. m. when details of the 
rescue were made known. 

It was about daybreak that the launch 
Lakcwood. witl) five passengers aboard, 
was sighted drifting helplessly with it 
disabled engine before the heavy south- 
easterly weather in the direction of 
the rocky shore. But for the timely 
appearance of the Princess Victoria it 
is probable that the frail craft would 
have been battered to pieces on the 
rocks, and loss of life might have re- 
sulted. The helpless launch was but 
about a hundred feet from the shore 
when the C. P. R. passenger ferry ar- 
rived on the scene. 

Captain Hickey at once manoeuvred 
the vessel to effect a rescue. Involving 
great risk on the part of the passenger 
steamer. A line was eventually got 
aboard tbe launch and she wss taken 
In tow by the Princess Victoria to a 
polxjt off Point .No Point, where she was 
handed over to the stesmer Kitsap, of 
the Kitsap County Transportation Com- 
pany's fleet, which vessel took the dam- 
aged launch and her rescued passengers 
to Kingston. 

But for the slow progress she was 
ablo to make with the laimch In tow 
the Princess Victoria would have taken 
the craft to Seattle.

The steamship Princess Charlotte, of 
the C. P. R. triangular fleet, which has 
been temporarily withdrawn from ser- 
vice during the slack season, has beeh 
placed In drydock to undergo repairs 
and general overhaul. The vessel has 
several dented plates benedth the water- 
line, the damage bolnv sustained earlier 
In the season, and these will be re- 
paired while the vessel Is on the stocks. 

It is expected that the Princess 
Charlotte will t>e In the dock for a

To Whom It May 

The cioaing of the Panama Canal by the Oides which 
occurred there in September barred all shipment* of 
lumber to Kngland, I'rance and the Atlantic Coast of 
the United States. The Rreater portion of our products 
were goine to tho^e markets from which we are now cut 
off, and there is little chance for a re.4umption of ship, 
ments via the canal before March, 1916. 

Rather than cloy oar mills and take away the mean* 
of earning a- living from more than 150 employees, we 
propose to sell lumber ot all grades and kinds, for the 
next three months at the bare cost of production, which 
is lower than ttsual> Good mechanics arc seeking work

commander, lia.<<tlly reading the mes-

he passed the slip on to the gunnery 

Hut the enemy was not waJtlng for 
gifts. Uarely had the commander lin- 
lahed speaking ere a sholl came shriek- 
ing over the tree-tops and dived Into 
flic water just ahead with an angry 
splash. Trudg«r replied with a shell 
that shrieked still louder» and when It 
struck the earth burst like a mine ex- 

Shells were falling thickly and un- 
comfortably near the boats, when a 
.■signalman who was gazing through a 
big telescope exclaimed: "They're apot- 
ilng fronn a tree, sir." 

The signalman pointed and the com- 
mander took the glass. 8uro enough, 
* there was a barrel full of the enemy 
la^he<l to the top of a tree. 

"Shift 'em," he ordered — and shifted 
lliev promptly were. A hlgh-exploslvo 
.•'hell blew tree, barrel and occupants 
clean out of the landscape. 1 

"Good hit: "bll.s have come this way,' 
wirelessed the nt'roplanes chafflngly.

Trudger was hauled oloae Inshore and 
painted green from mast-head to water-

tropical trees were placed In earth on 
her deckit. Aa the latter were almost 
level with the water. Trudger, by the 
time her dlaguise was completed, look- 
ed from a distance exactly like one 
of the little isleta which float about 
the moutha of tropical rivers. By way 
of giving a proper flnlshing touch |n

from showing up too conspicuously

When day broke "The Inland that

fences, while Trudger got busy peeling 
off her disguise. Karth and trees went 
swiftly overboard, and her ship's com- 
pany, full of glee at the succens of 
their ruse, chaffed each other gaily as 
they washed off their paint. It was 
to them a jolly experience to have

lost her steam Im the eighth, and from 
then on, as Mrs. Bundy'n play lost force 
and precision. Mind BJurstedt steadily

From Salonica to tha Serbian frontier 
the llQe to Nish and Belgrade pasaea 
through practically flat country. From 
that point there are very strong natural 
defences, almost continuously north- 
wards, to NIsh, the temporary capital 
of Serbia. A curious medley of tha 
racca.of the Near East l^hablta the val- 
ley and gorgea of the broad, shallow 
Vardar, which is m^ny parta has a 
atrange beauty of Its own. Hare and 
tbeaa One paaaea through brown Turk- 
ish villages, where the minarala of the 
tiny mosques tell the tale of a fast-re- 
ceding empire, till Uskub. with its con- 
alderable but doolla Ottoman quarter, la 

The railway follows tha valley of the 
Vardar. Northwards from Govghelt, 
near the Greek frontier, tha land rlaea,, 
On each aide of "the Hne, tha hllla on 
tha waatera aide extending la that direc- 
tion aa far aa Philip. The eaatern chain 
runa roughly from Dorjan. on the bor-^ 
derp of Greece, to Komanovo, north af 
Uskub, and la practically parallel with 
tbe railway. But there Is one notable 
exception to tha weat of Strumltxa. The 
country 'to the northeast of Btrumltsa 
is the flatteat part of Macedonia, and. 
Indeed, of tho whole of tbe Balkans. 
Thla forhiarly made it very aaay for the, 
Bulgarian comltadjia to deacand from 
their dlataat hills and awarm over the 
plain, with free play, except for the aol- 
dlara guarding tba Una. to reach the' 
vital railway line. 

Thla law-lying eeunlry extends w^est- 
warda from Strumttaa to tba point 
where there fa a gap of about ten milea 
in tba mauntalnoua chain, which guarda' 
tbe railway. It waa hare that the aerl- 
Otis incursion by Bulgarian banda took 
place last Spring. But since then the 
military defences, here and elaewhera. 
have been gireatly strengthened. Btru- 
mltsa, with a population of about 
7.600. la the largest town In tba neigh- 
borhood, which if purely agricultural In 
character. Being tha centre of a cattle- 
producing area, it dhould In Itself prove 
a uaaful posaaaslon to Serbia and her 

From thla point the line strikes Into 
tba heart of tbe country. Between 
Velaa and Kumanove the hllla are much 
lower, but the uadaiatlal country la 
aapcclally salted to tbe gaerllla warfare 
at which tha SaTMaaa ara adepta. North 
of Kuokanovoi howovar, the hllla attain

It may not be Inappropriate to Intro- 
duce our remarks by pointing oM that 
the danger to Venice from the attacka 
of enemy aircraft la much less tban 
that to which London la now niglitly 
exposed. The nocturnal visits of the 
enemy to the city of the Lagunes ara 
made by aircraft of the ordinary type, 
and aa yet there haa bean no appreci- 
able damage, and hardly any loss of 
Ufa. . '" ' 

Mllan'a beat paper. The Corrlara della 
Sera,' gives a full account of tbe meaa- 
urcs, truly remarkable In their com- 
plexity and completeneas, whlcb have 
baea ukan by the city of Voaicfi, In 
combination with the Italian Govarn- 
ment, for the purpoae of protecting Ita 
incomparable monumenta of art treaa- 
urea, the delight not only of Italy, but 
of Europe, of the world. Certain pre- 
parations had been made long before 
the actual outbreak of hostilities, but 
tha actual work waa undertaken sub- 
aequently, add with astonishing energy 
carried to completion within a period 
of three months, or less. 

Working with the asnistanca of the 
Oenio Mllltaire (Knglneers), all who 
bad In their care, or were- responsible 
for. a monun!ent or a work of art, co- 
operated energetically and "with a vigi- 
lant love": and no brought to realiza- 
tion an undertaking which prima facie 
might have been deemed Impossible of 
achievement; their guidlni; principle 
being to rrmorc •whatevrr might safely 
be removed and aucceaefully guarded; 
to protect what could not be removed, 
and to take auch measures In regard to 
the monuments as to ensure that .If 
bombs should be dropped with effect 
they might yet Inflict only" reparable 
Injnry. Venice thinks nothing for the 
moment of her queenly beauty, but 
gladly Yells and obscures It, ko that 
In the future she may shine forth 
more than «vpr resplendent. Bho haa 
been, and Is, wholly docile, she accepts 
even the most drastic remedies so that, 
when the fires of hell are quenched, 
and the peoples breath freely again. She 
may arise supremely fair once more 
from her glancing waters, to gladden 
the eyes and console tbe hearts of her 
Innumerable worshippers. 

Maaoary aad Baad 

Listen to what she has. unmurmur- 
ing, endured at the handa of gfeat pa- 
triots mindful of the trust reposed In 
them by Italy, and cruel only 'to be 
kind. The whole exterior facade of 
the Doges' Palace is now strengthened 
by atone supports to the lower arches, 
borne by single columns which spring 
from the ground: by wooden supports 
to the tier abov4 them. The atablllty 
of the colossal and exquisite palace 
being thua materially increased. In 
view of dire eventualities, the capitals 
of the ground-floor columns, so elo- 
quently described In their didactic sig- 
nlflcance and artistic beauty by Rus- 
kln, hav« been protected; the groups 
of sculpture at the three anglea of the 
palace have been ao encloaed that these 
portions of the facade assume the ap- 
pearance of military turrets. The 
Scala del Ql^antl. In the Interior court- 
yard, with Its two giants by Jacopo 
Sansovlno, ha? been completely cover- 
ed with sand (sandbags?), similar pro- 
tection being accorded to the beautiful 
CInquecento bronze well-heads In the 
courtyard. Then the florid Porta della 
Carta, which unites the Basilica of St 
Marco with the palace, has boen com- 
pletely walled up and otherwise 
strengthened. ' The world-famous 
Horses of golden bronze, t^en away 
by Napoleon I. and restored by the 
Allies, have been removed from the 
facade of San Marco and placed In a 
retreat of their own constructed of 
masonry further protected with sand. 
In the interior of San Marco thr: great 
central altar, tha smaller altars carved 
by Pletro Lombardo, the precious 
quasl-Byzantlne puplts — Indeed, all the 
more Important objects of church fur- 
niture have been with such prodigal- 
ity covered with sand that the writer 
In The Corrlere della Sera likens the 
basilica In its present state to a gold- 
en granary. The Pala d'Oro, that vast 
and wonderful Byaantlna altar-frontal 
of gold framing Innumerable gem-Uke 
cloisonne enamels, has been removed 
to the treasury of San Marco, now pro- 
tected by armor-plating. An Ingenious 
plan has been devlred. and carried out, 
for strengthening the ahallow Byzan- 
tine cupolas of the basilica «o "^ to 
minimise the° eff«cts of falling bombs.

But, this Is not all, or nearly all: In- 
deed, It la only tha beginning. Pro- 
tected are the monumental tombs by 
Venetian sculptors In- the Frart eburcb, 
and that of S8. Giovanni e Paolo. The 
ColleonI equestrian statue by Verrac- 
cblo and Leopard! 'greatest of all 
equestrian flgurea save only the Oat- 
tamelata. by Donatello. in front of the 
Santo at PaVIUal), has been encloaed 
la a apeetally-devised cage. The fa- 
cade of the Hcuela San Marc<> with Its

(Dy Archibald Ilurd) 
Tits dramatic Incldenta In the ilaltlc. 
which have bacn reported during tho 
paat few days, are a reminder of the 
dominating Influence which tha British 
Meet Is exercising on the course of 
the war. Our command of the BalCle 
today, oalng to the successes which 
Urltlsh submarines have obtained, is. 
for the moment at any rate, almost aa 
complete as that in the outer eaaa Aad 
It was In the Baltic that the CJormaiy 
thought they had some water which 
they could use 

Krom much which is being written, 
and more which is being said. It might 
b« Imagined that sea power was pror> 
Ing a negiifftble factor, except In hj far 
as It Is enabling the Allies to use the 
seas freely for the purpose of trans- 
porting soldiers and supplies — supplies 
both for the troops atid for the civic 
populations of the Allied countries. 
That is, of course, a fallacy and 
a dangerous one. This Is a Euro- 
pean and a Continental £>uropean war, 
and not a world war, becatfse the Brit- 
ish Navy has decreed It so. 

rrooMntfs of Sea rower. 
Navies, like the mills of the gods, 
grind 'slowly, but they grind exceed- 
ingly small. In the early period of the 
war It was not to be expected that a 
nation as highly organized economical- 
ly as the Germanti would at once feel 
the effects of the siege. Austria was, 
also, in a condition to sustain her pop- 

determined to employ convoys of light 
men-of-war in «/rder to get In those 
supplies. But this policy will itot aave 
ner. They liavs laid mines alito, but 
these, perhaps owing to the strong cur- 
rest rtiaaing, appear to have got adrift 
and sunk Ucrmaii ships. There is srlm 
satisfaction to t*« ubtaln«d from these 
successes of British submarines, be- 
cause nut %ery long ago the Germans 
boasted tbcy were useless; only Ger- 
mane possessed tlie secrets of subma- 
rine warfare. During last week the 
comparative few craft operating in the 
Baltic did twice ua much damage to 
the restricted trade of Germany as sli 
the German subntarines in other seas, 
though 1.500 merchsnt vessels — each a 
target — entered and left our ports. The 
panic in the Baltic, where all German 
shipping has now been held up, lep^e- 
sents another staggering blow to Ger- 
many's oversea trade. 

ICart«l8Bo U W i rn gj. 
There is a tendency Just now to ex- 
aggerate our dimcultles and tt> under- 
estimate the uatent of the damage 
which the enemies are sufterlns. ringetl 
in as they are by the naval and mili- 
tary l)0»«-r of the Allies. l»otit Icl ua 
overlook the British Fleet. History 
may show that it is Garmany's failures 
and not Germany's reputed successes 
whicli have been responsible for the 
new movement in the Balltans. In no 
single particular has a German calcula- 
tion been fulfilled. It only remains for 
us. with a Hure and confident aim, tu 
continue to utilise the overwhelming 
power which resides In the British 
h'leet and to observe the elementary 
rules of strategy of a maritime Power 
to carry to completion the task on 
which the Allies are engaged. — London

Wow Ordor AMtUmg 


A couple of weeks ago was tho 
eightieth birthday of the oldest Jour- 
nalist in Ktoet Street, Mr. J. Calllng- 
ham. of The Morning Advertiser, the 
organ of the licensed victuallers. He 
has been fifty-four years in Fleet 
Street — forty-five of them spoat on the 
same paper. As a tribute, he was enter- 
tained at dinner at the Press Club, 
where there was a great gathering of 

Mr. Callingham. by his connection 
with The Advertiser, has acquired a 
unique knowledge of the hostelrles of 
London. He knows the name and the 
initinls of every publloan In the metro- 
polls. Fleet Street has dealt kindly 
with him. There are few men whose 
health could stand flfty-four years 
spent In the heart of Newspaperland 
nnd at the age of algbty look the pic- 
ture of a hearty country squire, as he 

With a fine appetite for the good 
things of life, he has no patience with 
Puritanism In any disguise whatsoever. 

"I have never been a teetotaler," he 
told a Weekly Dispatch representative, ' 
"and I ne^or shall bo. I dislike those 
who are. They must bo cranks and in- 
tolerable bigots as well. A humorist 
has said that the olgirs I have smokod 
If placed In a line would stretch from 
Fleet Street to Margate. I should like 
to add that the drinks I have stood and 
the drinks that have been stood me 
would probably float a dreadnought. If 
I had not lived as I hare I should prob- 
ably never have reached the age I have. 
I have noticed that toetotalern have 
never yet produced a centenarian. 

"And now we are to have 'no treat- 
ing.' It means that a man like myself, 
who Is willing to Btantt drinks to his 
boot pals, and also to those who -are no 
pals at all but Just pals for the time be- 
ing, will be hauled up by the poMoe and 
fined. Not only shall I be fined for 
standing the drink, but my pal also will 
have to pay. If a man stands his wife 
a drink she will be fined too. 

"A more ridiculous, a more degrading 
moaaura would nevei aave ^joen sug- 
gostod before tho war, not even by a 
Ituiatlo out of Bodlam. if the publio 
wilt stand this, even in the crisis tho 
oountry Is now passing through — they 
will stand 4iMrtl>in« — anything except, 
of oourse. drinks.'* 

ICr. Callingham. in his spooch st tho 
dinner, said that of tM« nine editors of 
The Morning Advertiser one died at 
•4. one at •« aad one at It. Ho doabt- 
od whotbor pspars whieh had to do with

such a record.

Both had prepared for the war. But 
no amount of organization can. In the 
long ri>n, protect the enemies from the 
influence which naval power is quietly 
and persistently exerting. 

The economic condition of the Ger- 
man population is revealed in some 
disclosures which have recently been 
made. While some things are unob- 
tainable, it Is admitted that food prices 
generally have nearly doubled, and, in 
addition, there Is an increase in the 
price of coal, gas, and petroleum, of 
from thirty to forty per cent, while 
In the case of boots and clothes the 
rls« has been twice as great. The 
population of Germany is feeling the 
strain of the war. with what roHults 
on German policy we shall leain in 
due course, for no Government can per- 
manently muzsle a vast population in 
a state of misery. In Austria-Hungary 
the conditions arc worse..-- No one can 
form an adequate conception of the 
straits to which the Turks have been 
reduced; at any rate, the Turks are 
neither thrifty nor organized. Our 
enemies are feeling the effects of sea 
poa'er, snd it need not be doubted that 
this, as much as the change in the mili- 
tary aituation.on the Kast and West 
fronts, has led Germany into her new 
adventure In the Balkann. Tho Ger- 
man civil population Is living on hopes 
long deferred; therefore, It has keen 
decided to raise fresh hopes. Ger- 
many's external credit has done, .nnd 
her Internal credit depends on hopes. 
Oonaaaj Wlthont tho Soiu 
The conclusion as to the stiffcrlnKs 
of the Germans rests uii uolid founda- 
tions. Llchtenberger, no mean author- 
ity, in his study of "The Kvolutlon of 
Modern Germany," publl8he4l two yearn 
ago, made the following remarkable 
statement, tn confirmation of the con- 
clusions set forth by Grand Admiral 
voB Tlrpits in his famous memoran- 

"It is a well-known fact that nlnce 
between 1886 and 1888 the imports of 
Germany have exceeded her exports, 
and to such an extent that in 1900 her 
imports reached (,838,000,000 of marki<, 
whilst her exports only reached 4,5SS,- 
000,090, thus showing an excess in the 
Imports of 1,878,000,000 of marks. Now 
what do these figures prove? First of 
all, that Germany is today an indus- 
trial country, no longer living on the 
produce of her own soil, but on the 
iiXdustry of her InhabltantK. Pulitlcal 
economists have calculatttl that if Ger- 
many a-isbed to produce from her own 
sou the foodntuffs and raw material 
necessary for her own oonsumpllon and 
her own Industry, she would require 
a territory »t least twice or three times 
as large as tliat of the present empire, 
and this exclusive of tropical pro- 
ducts, auch as spleen, coffee and cotton, 
which her geographical position pre- 
vents her from growing. 

"It Is thus obvious that the present 
population of the German empire could 
not exist If It were not in n position to 
procure sn enormous quantity of for- 
eign goods, the production of which 
would require an extent of territory 
which Germany does not at present 

According to the latest figures, Ger- 
many's net imports of live animals 
amounted to {123,800,000, of foo<l to 
tl08,S00,000, and of raw materials to 
£178,000.000. These were paid for In 
part by exports of manufactured goods 
and of capital snd by shipping services 
— which hsve been stopped, or practi- 
cally stopped, b^ the British Fleet. 
AroOmv «ta««arlar Blow. 
Uurlng the eany period of the war 
British sea-power, which Is a tremen- 
dous economic weapon of offence, was 
employed st considerably less than Ms 
full strength; whether the policy ass 
wise or the reverse, at least the con- 
sideration shown to neutral traders 
gained for us many friends, and friends 
In war are valuable assets. Germany's 
submarine piracy forced the pace. Since 
the order-ln-councll of March, the Fleet 
has been acting with less restraint. 
and with conse^iuent disastrous results 
to all the enemies. Itnd not to l^ermsoy 
alone. During the last few months, and 
Indeed during the last few weeks, the 
conditions of the siege have become 
more constrictive, and now Germany 
cannot even use the Baltic. The screw 
has t>««n given a further turn. 

HiBce tho War opened the Germans 
have been obtaining limited quantities 
of goods of one kind and another, and 
panieularly Irtm ore. from Sweden, and 
generally havo traded freely In Scandi- 
navia. These imports are absolutely es- 
sential for tha maintenance of her mili- 
tary atrenstn. The British sabmarinoa 
in the Baltic have shown that the traf- 
Ae can be atoppod. Owing to tho sue- 
eoooes which have boon achieved dur-

Description of Chivalrous 
Excursion Against Enemy — 
Gentlemanly Warfare. 

I looked into the streets of both vil- 
lages as clearly as ui>e luMy see Into 
Clovelly village from the crest of the 
hill. In our own villatc a fi v iJritish 
soldiers were strolling about or were 
■Ittliig on the window still or a cvttage 
kicking their hecla 

lu the German- village the roadways 
were couctsaled by the perspective of the 
bouses with their gables and chimney 
stacks, so that J could not sec any 
passer-by. But at the top of the road 
outside the last house on tlte road was 
a solitary figure — a German sentry. 

The French lieutenant pointed to a 
thin mast away from the village on the 

"Do you see? That is their flagsUlT. 
They hoist their flag for victories. It 
wagged a good deal during the lecent 
Russian fighting. But lately, since our 
advance, they have not had the "culof 
tcheeki to put it up.''^ 

The cheery lieutenant lauglied very 
heartily at that naked pule on the hill. 

Then I left him and joined osr own 
men, and went down a steep hill path 
into that strange village ktelow, well 
outside ■'>ur line of trenches. 

At any moment these little houses 
about me might have been smashed into 
rubbish heaps. Uut no shell came to 
disturb the water-fowl among the reeds

And so it is that the life in this 
place l3 utterly abiiormul, and while'tlie 
guns were silent except for long-raiiKe j 
fire, an old-fashioned mode of war — ! 
what the adjutant of this little outpost | 
calls a "gentlemanly warfare" — pre- 
vails. Officers and men sleep within a 
few hundred yards of the enemy. When 
a fight takes place it is a chivalrous I 
excursion, such as Sir Walter Manny 
would have loved, between tlilrty or 
forty men on one side against some- 
what the same number on the other. 

Cur men steal out along tho causeway 
which crosses the marsh—a pathwiiy 
about four feet wide, broadening out In 
the middle so that a little redoubt or 
blockhouse is established there, then a narrow drawbridge, then along 
the path again until they come to the 
thicket \\hlch screens* the German \11-

(By Philip Glbbs) 
Two days ago I had an •adventure 
which still seems to me unreal and fan- 
tastic. 1 went into a village held by 
British troops beyotid our lines of 
trenches, with nothing dividing them 
from the enemy but a little undergrowth, 
and the queerest part of the adventure 
was the sense of safety, the ridiculous- 
ly false security, with which one could 
wander about the village, and up the 
footpath beyofld, with tlie knowledge 
that one's movements were being watch- 
ed by German eyes and that the whole 
place could be blown off the face of the 
earth ... but for the convenient fact 
that the Germans who were living In 
the village beyond the footpath were 
under our own observation and at the 
mei'cy of our own guns. 

To those who do not know at first 
hand the conditions of life along the 
greater part of the Western front it is 
difficult to explain the sense of stupe- 
faction with which I was filled in this 
extraordinary place. I have said that 
It Is beyond our lines. After a famili- 
arity with the Yprcs salient and any- 
where between the Yser Canal and tlio 
trenches at Neuve CThapelle, for In- 
stance, that sounds like a fairy tale. To 
go over the parapet of the first line of 
trenches, oven to put one's head up for 
a single second, is to risk immediate 
death. One "asks for it," as the sol- 
diers say. 

Beyond the first trench is the "dead 
ground." where no llfi" f-an exist, a blast- 
ed place, with .1 few huddled corpses, 
the churned-up earth of mine craters 
and shell-holes. There are listening- 
posts out there d\ig underground. Oc- 
casionally at night bold men will crawl 
out a little way on their stomachs, nnd 
lie "doggo." simulating death with a 
very earnest reallam, surprised after- 
wards — if they have the luck to come 
back — that their pretence was not made 
perfect by a sniper's bullet or a bit of 

Aa Aotoaadlag Thlaf 
That lu the familiar way of things In 
this war, and therefore when I say that 
there is one village thrust out beyond 
our Irenclies with no barrier of earth- 
works between the garrison ami the en- 
emy, I am saying an astounding thing, 
hardly credible to soldiers Who have 
not seen It. * 

Needless to sat>' it !s not In the flat 
fields of Flanders, but where, In an- < 
other part of the line, men who have j 
worked down from i»c deadly salient 
of Ypres, find lilll.s again nnd villsiie 
roads, down which they may walk under 
steep bluffs, close but Invisible to the 
enemy, and stand on high ground look- 
ing across to the enemy's trenches a 
mile or two away, perfectly outlined as 
though b^ a brush of whitew.a«h on a 
background of green slopes, so that tlie 
veil which hides the enemy's position 
tn Flemish fields is lifted at last, and 
the war-xone is a wide panorama across 
where one's glasses may sweep to watch 
the bursting shellH, or villages where 
Germans live, or even, as I saw two 
days ago, German soldiers themselves, 
like little nuts on the far ground. 

I stood on a hill here with a French 
lieutenant and one of hia men. The de- 
tachment Itself was some distance away, 
but after an exchange of compliments in 
an idyllic glade, where a little psrty of 
French soldiers lived In the friendliest 
Juxtaposition with the British infantry 
surrounding them — It was a cheery 
bivouac among the trees, with the frag- 
rance of a stew-pot mingling with the 
odor of burning wood — the lieutenant in- 
sisted upon leadiitg the way to the Cop 
of the hill. 

He noadc a slight detour to point out 
a German shell which had fallen there 
without exploding, and made laughing 
comments tipon the harmless, futile 
character of those poor Germans in 
front of us. They do their best to kill 
us, but oh! fo feebly! 

Tet when I took a pace towards the 
shell he called out shsrply, "Xe touhcez 
paal" I would rather have touched a 
sleeping tiger than that conical piece of 
metal with lU unexploded posslbilltlea 
but bent low to see tho inscriptions on 
It scratched by French gunners with 
reckleaonoas of doath. "Mart adx 
Bochoo" waa scrawled upon It between 
the men's Initlala 

A ••TMHo Umtrr 
Then wo came to tbo lilll eroat and 
to tho last of our trtitcbea. aod. sta8id- 
ing there, looked down upon two vil- 
lages ooparated by a piece of rosrahy 
waur. In tite farthest village were tbo

night, that a party of Germans are 
creeping forward from the other direc- 
tion, in JuMt the same way, dlsgulHed 
In parti-colored ciothcM, splashed with 
greens and reds and browns, to make 
them invisible between the trees, with 
brown ina.sks over their faces. Then 
suddenly contact Is made. 

In the Hllenco of the wood comes the 
sharp crack of rifles, the xlp-zip of bul- 
lets, the sliouts of men who have given 
up the game of invisibility. It was a 
very sharp encounter the otlier night, 
and our men brought back many Ger- 
man helmetM and other trophies as 
proofs of victory. 

Man to Xaa 

Two days ago I went along the cause- 
way and out into llic wood, where the 
outposts stood listening for any crack 
of a twig which niiglit betray a German 
footstep. 1 was utartlfd when I came 
upon men suddenly, almost Invisitile 
against the tree trunks. And there they 
stood motionless with their rIOcs ready, 
peering through llie bruHhwood. If I 
had followed the r»atli on which they 
stood for Just a Ilttin way I should liavo 
walked Into tho German village. But. on 
the other han"'. I sliould not have

New Methods of Warfare 
Adopted in Champagne Of- 
fensive — Cavalry Are Again 
in Action. 

A mor« datalletl account of the ci'««t 
battle of Champagne Alls in many out- 

The French official estimate is that 
the Germans lost 140,000 killed, wound- 
ed and prisoners. We knew already, 
writes O. H. I'errls. that the prisoners 
numbered a Utile fewer than 20.000, and 
from tMs. as well ati the fuller .narra- 
tive of the nghtinK on September 2a 
and the followinK day.i, it Is evident 
that tlie proportion of killed was un- 
usually larise 

Despite the shattering and demoralii- 
ing ofTect of a preliminary bombard- 
ment, which did not ceane for three days 
and nights, the enemy put up a desper-

On tile other hand, the t'Vench troops 
proved themselves incomparable In as- 

The difficulty of completely clearluK 
an Irregular ground of artillery Arc, 
however well planned, was again illus- 
trated. Wherever there was a. compar- 
atively good Held of fire the mdst pro- 
digious fortifications were blown to hits, 
but many small works and machine gun 
shelters remained intact In folds of the 
undulating country; and itome of tl»eHe 
took several days to reduce. A formid- 
able organization still remains uncon- 
quered; Indeed, making a salient in the 
new I'Yench lines between MuK«igeH and 
Tahure. To the northeast of this salient 
lies the plateau called the Hand of Mhm- 
siges, and to the northwest the Ltutte

which I have already described.

The first (jcrman pOBltions were much 
the densest, consisting of a labyrinth 
400 yarils deep of trenches strengthened 
with fortlnes and protected by tlclds of 
barbed wire. Tiiese works were 
skilfully planned, giving apparently Ini- 
prcgnabl«> cover, v,-ith abundant lines of 
lateral Are. 

The second system of defence connint- 
ed only of a single line witli many ma- 
chine gun posts and communication 
trenches. Where the French artillery 
was most effective the captured dykes 
were found under clouds of smoke full 
of dead bodies and wounded or dum- 
founded men. who were easily taken 

In many cases they were without food 
or munitions, and had been unable even 
to evacuate their wounded. 

At Vedegrange, and to the cast of 
the Souain-Tahure road, progress could 
only be made step by step, a succession 
of unbroken trendies having to be 
gradually cleared chiefly by the ufte of 
band grenades. A chain of men would 
thus advance in Indian flle dividing off 
at eacli entry into a new length of 
trench. The officers, revolver in hand, 
the soldiers pas.sing stocks of bombs 
from one to anotlier up to the head of 
the file, ns firemen pass up buckets of 

Oenemlly the enemy refused to sur- 
render, and were exterminated in their 
holes. Three-qiiarterB of the ttcrman 
10th Army Corps, which was brought 
up in reinforcement, is believed to have 
been slain. 

F'or the first time since the battle of 
the Mnrne the artillery were brought up 
in support of the Infantry advance. Kven 
some heavy pieces were carried forward 
on the night of (September 2.'i, and on 
the following «lay the strange sight was 
witnessed of Kuns placed and firing in 
the open (lulte In the manner of the old- 
fashioned I>attlo pictures.

The cavalry also got Its first chance 
for many a lonji day In France. 

To the north of neaiipcjour, crossing 
the broken trenches over planks, two 
.miiiadrons of ("hn.HMeiirs galloped for- 
ward under a rain of shells ti> the very 
edge of a fJerni.-in fortified position, the 
defenders of wlilcli suri-endcred in sheer 
astonishment. At this point the attack- 
ers lost only some of their horses by 
niachine gun fire. 

The French staff is doulttless Justltled 
In claiming that the moral effect of this 
defeat has been even more severe for 
the (lermun army than the loss of 120 
cannon and men equivalent in numbers 
to three and a half army corps. Itoth 
moral and material effects are very 
greatly increa.Hed — perhaps wc may say 
double<1 — by the fact that in the month 
that has passed since the beginning of 
the l>attle the I*'rench have made further

so many costly failures.

The "Meccano*' Is More 
Than a Toy 

It is most important to re- 
member that when a boy is 
playing with Meccano he' is 
using engineering parts ia 
miniature, and that these parts 
act in precisely the same way 
as the corresjjonding engineer- 
ing elements would do in actual 

Meccano i*. therefore, more than 
a mere toy — it is instructive and 
educational — giving room for the 
development of^ the mind in a 
practical mechaiiical trend.

A Book Everybody Shodld Read 


By Nellie L. McClung 

MKS. McCLL'XG is one of Canada's most distinguish- 
ed leaders in the of women. In response to 
repeated requests, she has set down her opinions on 
many of the vital topics of the day — sane opinions tem- 
perately expressed, illustrated by humorous and pathetic 
inciflents and anecdotes, based upon her broad experi- 
ence in fighting for decency and the safely of the home. 
She declares war on snobbishness, meanness, petty 
jealousies, all forms of s|>ecial privilege and greed. She 
offers strong protests against li(|uor traffic, white slave 
trade, ignorance, luxury, laziness and indifference. Her 
watchword is a fair deal for all, not omitting the men. 
This book contains twelve chapters written in an in- 
teresting style. Cleir. easy reading print, and bound in 
cloth board. ,
