Publication began at 9 p.m. Sufficient is known of the situation at the seat of war to justify the conclusion that Germany's advance is decidedly checked and that her capital city Berlin will be in greater danger than Paris is now in. Unfortunately for Germany she is continually discrediting herself, her refusal of financial aid to Austria is execrable and perfidious in the, extreme. Her night attacks of Dirigibles and Aeroplanes are inhuman, and the setting adrift of floating mines, the area of whose des tructiveness is only limited by the currents of the ocean is be yond words to express its das tardliness, as it affects friend and foe, the armed and the de fenceless alike. We fear that Germany is run ning up an account amongst the nations, and that "The Day" of reckoning for which will be horrible to contemplate. The mobilization and transportation of the expeditionary force of England to the continent was done in a manner that calls forth the wondering admiration of the world add to this the marvellously rapid transportation of a quarter of a million Russian troops to Europe and still further the "Rapid Transit" of our Indian Troops to the front, and the |e is given to the "Calamity howlers" who would have us believe that our War Department was demoralized and that our Army was more on paper than in fact; the performances recited above seem to us to indicate almost the perfection of organization.

This is but the beginning. Nearly all of the contributors gave a hundred guineas. Each one of them wished that his individual contribution could be more than a thousand pounds. "It is a splendid beginning," said His Excellency the Governor. "It is excellent." So far so good. The people who gave a hundred guineas each are gentlemen and firms in a strong position. There are others like them. These will come forward with large contributions. There will be many more donations of a hundred guineas each. But there are thousands of persons in Kingston and all over the Island who cannot give a hundred guineas. They cannot give a guinea each. Whatof that? Can they give a shilling? Can they give threepence? If they can let them not.be ashamed of com ing forward at this hour. Their mite will be cheerfully, as thankfully received as will be the donation of the man who has a thousand pounds to give. A three penny piece may mean a sacri fice. All honour to the man or the woman who makes a sacrifice now. We will receive contributions of three pence each. We will publish the names of contributors and donations of the smallest denomination with the same readiness as we will publish the names of those who send in cheques for a hundred guineas. All these contributions come from the heart. And the poor is as loyal as the rich. "I want to give an opportunity to the poorest as well as to the richest," said His Excellency the Governor. He especially emphasised the fact that his appeal was to all Jamaica—All. We dwell upon this at this moment. We call upon the peasant as well as upon the merchant. Both are British subjects. Both love the Mother Country and the British Empire. Botn know what their duty is at this trying mo mentous hour. There is no difference. We have faith in both alike. Send what you can. Do not be ashamed of the smallness of you* gift. There is nothing to be ashamed of in that. What there IVOMM h"to hlnsh at is n nig your gardly spirit, a spfefeof indiffer ence to the CauseflPthe Enipire. But such a spirit does not exist in Jamaica. Men and Women of Jamaica, the poor as well as the rich, re member that the appeal is direct ly to you. We know what response will be. Through the courtesy of the Colonial Bank, the Royal Back of Canada, and the Nova Scotia Bank, accounts have been open ed free of charge in the name of "The Jamaica Relief Wat I Fund." The amounts collected will be lodged to the credit of this fund. 'Ihe Gleaner— 23rd August, 1914. The following were passenj gers per "Frances E." yestei; day. — Misses Rosa Seymour, ant!

PICKED UP September 10th 1914 The Allies continue to gain the ascendency. A French official report says: "Our strategical position was never better. The German enveloping movement has been completely foiled by brilliant feats of strategy. The ( French have drawn the Germans into a serious position after a superb orderly retreat from the North. The French are still in full striking strength, that is why the Germans neglected Paris" The Germans are apparently out of ammunition. A Russian despatch says that a battle near Rowa Ruska, 26 miles Northwest of Lemburg A resulted in an overwhelming Russian victory after four days fighting. L. The Ruwans arc now masters of Northern Galicia. The United States Ambassador has ordere I all Americans to leave Paris immediately. The German Ambassador at Washington says that Maubeuge 1 as fallen. This is denied by the French. The Kaiser has complained to President Wilson that the Eng lish are using dum-dum bullets. GOVERNMENT PRESS The attempt of the German left wing to break the French line on the River Ource has fail ed, The British have crossed the River Marne and the enemy have fallen back 25 miles. The Monteuegrans haveoccu pied Fotcha, an important posi tion in Austrian territory, after a hot battle. All Frenchmen previously exempted from military duty because of defective health have been ordered to undergo further examinations.

The favourable news from the opera tions of the allies is creating irr^ mense enthusiasm.

They appear to be having diffi culties in obtaining provisions. A Russian aviator sacrificed his life in destroying an Austrian airship both aviators lost their lives.

BRITISH PRESS
COMPLAINS BITTERLY
OF THE CENSOR
London, Saturday. The Foreign
Office today issued a statement as
follows:
"Conclusive evidence produced
by the Agence I lavas has entirely
satisfied the Foreign office-that
the statement occurring in a re-
cently published report forwarded
by Mis Majesty's Ambassador at
Berlin, thaUthe Agence Havas had
argreed in future to publish news
concerning Germany only if sup-
plied through the Wolff Telegrap
hie Bureru, is not correct. Such an
arrangement appears to have been
intended by the Geiman organiza-
tion, but it is not one which the
Agence Havas ever contemplated.
"It is with (.Meat satisfaction that
the Foreign Office has been able
Jo give publicity to this correction.
^ I he Post today publishes a
"umber of letters from correspond-
ents expressing satisfaction at its
publication of the wireless des-
patches from Berlin.on the grom d
that although they are doubtless
exaggerated they give the bell
available information, while the
French and English governments
withhold all news.
Another correspondent proposes
that if the goyeinment cannot see
its way to allow war correspond
ents at the front they should them-
selves appoint reliable correspond-
ents to give to the public accounts
of the fightirfg.
Robert P. Skinner, American
Consul General here, has received
nptice that Great Britain-will" ad-
here "so far as is practicable" to
the Port of London agreement re-
garding contraband, in-order to act
ii uniformity with the rest ol the
allies.
:o:
DENIES USE OF
DUM-DUM BULLETS.
The British government to-day
ma , charges that dum dum bullets had
been found on English and French
prisoners. The statement to this
effect is as follows :
"Neither the British nor tne
Frencli army has in its possession
or has issued any but approved
patterns ol'rifle and revolver am-
munition which do not infringe
in any respect the provisions of
the Hague convention."
The Times, speaking editorially
of the lack of official war news,
says :
Premier Asquith said on Mon-
day that the government felt that
tfie public was entitled to prompt
authentic information of what
happened at the front and that the
government was making arrange-
ments to that end. We wish we
could see any sign that these &r
rangement were coming into force.
" The country has now been at
war for a month and during that
period the public has been furnish-
ed with only one adequate official
statement regarding the land oper-
ations of tl* most powerful army
Great Britain ever sent to the
Continent. During the remainder
of this week no further important
information has been vouchsafed.
"In time of an unprecedented
crisis the press has a great patrio-
tic duty to perform. It has to
stimulate and deepen the public
interest in this struggle which is
bound to last a veiy long time and
on which the fate of the Fmpire
depends,
"Germany is well aware of the
potent influence of the press and
uses it to the uttermost.
"We commend to attention the
facsimile we publish today of a
communication purporting to
emanate from a member of theTmes
staff, a person who has never ex-
isted. This unscrupulous communi-
cation has been published in hun-
dreds of newspapers in Western
America.-
"We could quote innumerable
examples of the kind. One reason
why Turkey is on the verge of war
is that Constantinople is swamp
ed by Germany with fabrications
about alleged British and French
reverses. Another example we quote
today shows that the German and
Dutcii press is now being mobilized
for eflorts to detach France from
tiip entente.
MORE NEWS FROM
PETROGRAD
"Germany has even approached
the Times and other English news-
papers, offering for publication the
reports of her general staff upon
the military operations.
"Our government has done noth-
ing to counteract these activities.
In a month we have had only one
statement of any value. We have
received from Petrograd infinitely
more information than from our
own War Office."
I he Times also deals with the
British system of censoring news
despatches It says the German
government has always understood
the value of presenting its own
news to the public abroad, and
says:
"Englishmen are apt to regard
this kind of propaganda with con-
tempt. They believe that truth
will prevail over ur.truth, no mat-
ter how scientifically falsehood may
be spread. In the long run their
confidence is no doubt justified,
but in the present circumstances
the practice of giving lies too long
a start may be attended by serious
drawbacks. Our attentions in-
centrated upon the war and its
vicissitudes. We are apt to forget
that the public in neutral countries
is as eager as we are for news and
thai its view of the course of the
war is likely to he influenced by
the j first news it receive. Our
government, in its justifiable anxie-

Sufficient is known of the
situation at the seat of war to
justify the conclusion that Ger-
many's advance is decidedly
checked and that her capital
city Berlin will be in greater
danger than Paris is now in.
Unfortunately for Germany
she is continually discrediting
herself, her refusal of financial
aid to Austria is execrable and
perfidious in the, extreme. Her
night attacks of Dirigibles and
Aeroplanes are inhuman, and
the setting adrift of floating
mines, the area of whose des
tructiveness is only limited by
the currents of the ocean is be
yond words to express its das
tardliness, as it affects friend
and foe, the armed and the de
fenceless alike.
We fear that Germany is run
ning up an account amongst the
nations, and that "The Day" of
reckoning for which will be
horrible to contemplate.
The mobilization and trans-
portation of the expeditionary
force of England to the continent
was done in a manner that calls
forth the wondering admiration
of the world add to this the mar-
vellously rapid transportation of
a quarter of a million Russian
troops to Europe and still further
the "Rapid Transit" of our In-
dian Troops to the front, and the
|e is given to the "Calamity
howlers" who would have us be-
lieve that our War Department
was demoralized and that our
Army was more on paper than
in fact; the performances recited
above seem to us to indicate al-
most the perfection of organiza-
tion.
It is said that "When rogues
fall out honest men come by
their rights".-now that the
Kaizer and his Chancellor and
his Minister of War are falling

the campaign.

A DUTY
BEFORE EVERY BRITON
The Fund for the assistance
of British soldiers fighting on the
Continent is already more than
Thirteen hundred pounds. This
is but the beginning. Nearly all
of the contributors gave a hund-
red guineas. Each one of them
wished that his individual con-
tribution could be more than a
thousand pounds.
"It is a splendid beginning,"
said His Excellency the Gover-
nor. "It is excellent." So far so
good.
The people who gave a hun-
dred guineas each are gentlemen
and firms in a strong position.
There are others like them.
These will come forward with
large contributions. There will
be many more donations of a
hundred guineas each.
But there are thousands of
persons in Kingston and all over
the Island who cannot give a
hundred guineas. They cannot
give a guinea each. Whatof that?
Can they give a shilling? Can
they give threepence? If they can
let them not.be ashamed of com
ing forward at this hour. Their
mite will be cheerfully, as thank-
fully received as will be the do-
nation of the man who has a
thousand pounds to give. A three
penny piece may mean a sacri
fice. All honour to the man or
the woman who makes a sacri-
fice now.
We will receive contributions
of three pence each. We will
publish the names of contribu-
tors and donations of the small-
est denomination with the same
readiness as we will publish the
names of those who send in
cheques for a hundred guineas.
All these contributions come
from the heart. And the poor is
as loyal as the rich.
"I want to give an opportunity
to the poorest as well as to the
richest," said His Excellency the
Governor. He especially empha-
sised the fact that his appeal
was to all JamaicaAll. We
dwell upon this at this moment.
We call upon the peasant as
well as upon the merchant. Both
are British subjects. Both love
the Mother Country and the
British Empire. Botn know what
their duty is at this trying mo
mentous hour. There is no dif-
ference. We have faith in both
alike.
Send what you can. Do not be
ashamed of the smallness of you*
gift. There is nothing to be
ashamed of in that. What there
ivomM h"to hlnsh at is n nig
your
gardly spirit, a spfefeof indiffer
ence to the CauseflPthe Enipire.
But such a spirit does not exist
in Jamaica.
Men and Women of Jamaica,
the poor as well as the rich, re
member that the appeal is direct
ly to you. We know what
response will be.
Through the courtesy of the
Colonial Bank, the Royal Back
of Canada, and the Nova Scotia
Bank, accounts have been open
ed free of charge in the name of
"The Jamaica Relief Wat
I Fund." The amounts collected
will be lodged to the credit of
this fund.

ENLIST DOGS IN AR.MY.
Spitzes Acquire Knowledge of
Military Duty That Renders
them Useful to Germans.
In Germany the dog has his
place as a part of the nation's
regular fighting force. There is
a regular dog corps for service in
time of war. The dogs are
carefully trained to their duties.
Most of the dog corps, says
the American Boy, are compos
ed entirely of Spitzes or Pome
ranians, and these are mostly
white in color. Of course, a
gray dog has a better chance of
escaping detection in the field
than a white one, but the white
dogs are gray enough after they
have been on the march for a
day or two. Each dog is equip-
ped with a metal collar and a
pouch for letters. He is never
tied up and is never led by a
chain or rope.
The dogs are given a peculiar
but remarkably thorough and
painstaking education. First the
dog is taught to distinguish be-
tween the uniforms of the Ger-
mans and those of foreign coun
tries. He is then taught the uni
forms of the officers of the Ger
man army. After he has master
ed the uniforms of the various
armies, he is given some drills
in scout duty, being taught to
tell his master of the approach
of an enemy or friend.
The army dog is also taught
to deliver letters. The letters are
placed in his pouch and he is
trained to run from post to post
with them. He is taught to
know many other posts besides
his own, to recognize them by
name, to take a pouch of letters
to any post designed, to deliver
them to an officer, to wait for a
reply and to return to his own
post. The soldier dog also look
after the wounded. He is trains
ed to discover wounded soldiers,
to take water to them and to
tell his superior officers of his
discovery. When the dog's edu-
cation is completed he is assign
ed to a regiment.

"Constant and well founded com-

of Italians and American corres-

cases these are detained from twelve

eight hours by the British censors."
The Times adds :"No time is
to be lost if this regrettable and
indeed dangerous situation is to be
remedied. The war may last long.
It may affect the very existence of
the empires and countries involved
in it. It is not too much to ask
that our government should sp?re
neither pains nor money to insure
that neutral countries whose alti-
tude at critical moments may be of
vital importance shall not lie left

information of the progress of the |
war and of the fortunes of the al-1
