Publication began at 5.10 p. m. Zbe tribune Thursday, October S. 1914. For the last day or two there has been a scarcity of war news, and that received today has not been of a very reassuring kind still there is no cause to be downhearted, a walkover could not have been expected and will not be had. However from such news as reaches us contradictory as it is in many cases there are good rea sons for believing that this long drawn out battle of many days is having a weakening' effect physically and moral I v and can not be possible, for much longer, for Von Klucks centre to hold out against such a continuous and unceasing hammering. —:o:— THE EXODUS TO FLORIDA For September 1914.

The Evening New$, Sept 22, 1914 — :o: — TO BERLIN TO SETTLE ACCOUNTS "Not untill the horsemen of the gathering nations ride down Unter Den Linden will the German pe< pie realize that their mad dreams are shattered f< re' 1 ." There are many signs that opinion is hardening in the dir in 111 of making this '\ar a lirial war—to to break tl %  power of the enemy that renew 1! of the war is impossible. MrvcierliiM U's View \1. Maurice Maeterli ik, the greal Belgian writer. i 111 the Daily Mail, "Let us know how to be pitiless that we m ij have no more need for pity. It is a measure -if organic defence. It is essential that the modern world should stamp out PfUS siau militarism as it would stamp out a poisonous fungus thai for half a century had disturbed and polluted its days. The health of our planet is in question. To morrow the united states of Europe will have to take measures for the convalescence of the earth. HINTS OF PEACE "Should the Allies be fortunate 1 nough to drive the German Armies back to the Rhine— which isstdlal"ng wa\ ofT'says r/iHi-s— "we may be sure that hilltSof a desire for pear c will soon in heard from Berlin We may he equally sure that man-. of the misguided people in this country who for ten years' misled the British nation about' German aims will raise the same cry. We may be absolutely certain that if we were to yield to it, we shoul have to fight this war overagian on a far less favourable basis within five years. We have had a century of com paritive peace and unexampled prosperity because our forefathers removed a menace from Europe without permanent injury to the immortal Iiench nation. DISPEL MILITARISM FOR EVER. "We and our Allies owe it to those who will come after us to dispel for ever the menace of Prussian militarism which lias solong hung like a black cloud over the Western world. We shall only do it b\ carrying our victorious arms, at whatever 1 a >sl into the heart of the enemy's Empire. "There are those who re proachus for expressing a desire to exact retribution. They seem to think that the Allies propose to seek vengeance in Germany by outraging women, slaughtering innoci nt civilians, maiming wounded foes, destroying heipless cities, and repeating all the crimes winch have marked the march of the Germans through Belgium and Northern France. Those who make these tin war rantahle suggesiions offer the gravest insult to our Army and Navy, to our nation, to our overakinsmen, and to our brave and generous Allies. We seek a nobler and milder vengeance. —Public Opinion, Sept. 16th Rupture Cured The Brooks Appliance Attorney General's Chambers, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, B. W. L S-lt-'lO.

"" %  %  ."J" numbers have pushed the Belgians back. The bombardment of Alost continues from day to day. The town is now a mass of ruins. Nothing is sacred for the ravagers. They have shelled the churches, and even Red Cross buildings, without a single military reason. Further east he Germans are desperately attacking Fort Waelhem, the key to Flanders. As regards Antwerp, it is not easy to make any definite statement until the result of to-day's battle is known. In any circumstances, the town is well provisioned, and, moreovei, the defences are of the most wonderful character. In various parts of the fighting line more than ten thousand Germans are reported dead. While these reports may be exaggerated, certainly many thousands have fallen. German prisoners have been captured in large batchps. One hundred and twenty men near Alost were cut off from the main body and fell into Belgian hands. — New York Herald, Oct. ist. SUNDAY NEXT4P.M.

London, Thursday.
Hugh Martin, the Daily News'
correspondent, telegraphs from
Ghent : -
"There nas been hard fighting
to day over a sixty mile front, with
an artillery rfoel from end to end
of the line. Heavy howitzers have
be> 11 brollgrV t" hear upon certain
of the out-1 forts which lie imme-
diately behind Mechlin The cen-
tre is being vigorously shelled with
shrapnel, which could be seen but st-
ing over the trenches on the main
road to Mechlin.
"At four o'clock we were favour-
ed by the unusual spectacle of a
Belgian aeroplane wheeling high
above the town being fired at with
shrapnel by a high elevation Ger-
man gun. Two shells, throwing
out puffs of dirty yellow smoke,
exploded, one within three hundred
feet and the other twice that dis-
tance from the tiny craft, which
could be distinctly seen rolling in
the air swell caused by the concus-
sion. Then it rose swiftly and
vanished. The Belgian soldiers in
the intrenched positions on the
river bank gave a cheer. All of
them felt happy that one gallant
adventure was well ended.
" The Belgian army is in high
spirits and eager for the great
struggle which is about to begin,"
The official communique, issued
late this evening, says:
"Duringtheday German artillery
continued its bombardment of the
first line of forts. The works suf.
feted little. At one point the enemy
made violent attacks, but their loss-
es were very heavy, The morale of
the Belgian troops is excellent."
130.000 MEN ARE ENGAGED
IN DESPERATE BATTLE
NEAR ANTWERP
At The Front, Wednesday.
Theie Ins been desperate fight-
ing to-day along the line which ex-
tends from Termonde to Aershot.
The Germans have brought vast re-
inforcements from the Seventh
corps at Brussels, and the Belgians
have not been slow in replying.
There are now nearly 150,000 men
engaged in a death struggle to the
north of Brabant.
The Belgian resistance in the
face of the superior German aitil-
lery is really magnificent. Yester-
day at \udetjhem, which has been
the scene of fierce, fighting, a Bel-
gian battery silenced a Germ*in

For the last day or two there
has been a scarcity of war news,
and that received today has not
been of a very reassuring kind
still there is no cause to be
downhearted, a walkover could
not have been expected and will
not be had.
However from such news as
reaches us contradictory as it is
in many cases there are good rea.
sons for believing that this long
drawn out battle of many days
is having a weakening' effect

not be possible, for much longer,
for Von Klucks centre to hold

"There's a boat fra' Belfast

is: Whocares-about 'Ome Rule?
It's t' Germans we've got to

He gave the automatic machine
a parting kick and swaggered
up the street whistling The

cry. We may be absolutely cer-
tain that if we were to yield to
it, we shoul have to fight this

We have had a century of com -

DISPEL MILITARISM FOR

"There are those who re
proachus for expressing a desire
to exact retribution. They seem
to think that the Allies propose
to seek vengeance in Germany
by outraging women, slaughter-
ing innoci nt civilians, maiming
wounded foes, destroying heip-
less cities, and repeating all the
crimes winch have marked the
march of the Germans through
Belgium and Northern France.
Those who make these tin war
rantahle suggesiions offer the
gravest insult to our Army and
Navy, to our nation, to our over-
- a- kinsmen, and to our brave
and generous Allies. We seek a
nobler and milder vengeance.

numbers have pushed the Belgians
back. The bombardment of Alost
continues from day to day. The
town is now a mass of ruins. Nothing
is sacred for the ravagers. They
have shelled the churches, and even
Red Cross buildings, without a
single military reason.
Further east he Germans are
desperately attacking Fort Wael-
hem, the key to Flanders.
As regards Antwerp, it is not
easy to make any definite state-
ment until the result of to-day's
battle is known. In any circum-
stances, the town is well provis-
ioned, and, moreovei, the defences
are of the most wonderful character.
In various parts of the fighting
line more than ten thousand Ger-
mans are reported dead. While
these reports may be exaggerated,
certainly many thousands have fal-
len. German prisoners have been
captured in large batchps. One
hundred and twenty men near
Alost were cut off from the main
body and fell into Belgian hands.
