DEnus, Sept. 10.
It Is reported hero that Inrso German
.forces nro concentrated on tho northern
border of Itusslan I'oland to follow up
the victory over the Vllna army by an
'attack upon tho main Itueelan forces,
with tli purpose of drnttlns a larso part
or these away from tho campaign npilnst
tho Austrlans in Gallcla.
It Is nlso made plain, In a Ucrlln olll
clal statement, that the German forces
which nro oiioratliiB In Knst Prussia con
tinue to drive tho Itusslans back, nnd It
Is believed that an Invasion In forco of
Itusslan Poland may be about to com
mence. General Von Hliidenburg Is
btt Ileitis at the Itusslan communications
on tlio east bank of tho Vistula iuul If
his present movement Is successful tho
ltussians will be compelled to withdraw
laigu forces from Gallcla, thus relieving
thu pictsure on the Austrian arin'es.
According to this report the Itusslans
wro completely routed. So anxious wcio
thpy to Hue that cverythlnff thnt mlsht
Impede their retreat was abandoned.
Meanwhile they attempted to loHovo their
Inavlly piessed forces by a ntim; rjl
utun from XledenburK, but It wan also
attacked and defeated.
Many pieces of tlio Russian nrtlllery
wi ro put out of commission bv thu accur
acy of the. German fire. Tho retreat
Dually developed into a hopeless rout. The
i!d, 15th und L3d Itusslan army coips wero
pructlcally annihilated und morn than half
of tho Cth corps was cut olT. Tin battlu
Is now known as tho buttle of Taiincn
burs, and Is declared by German news
p.ipi ra to he the "Sedan of the i;nst,"
PirrnOGltAD, Sept. til.
In Kast t'ru.ssla the Germans, heavily
reinforced, are endeavoring to assume
the offensive. It is stated that tho Itus
slans are now malntnlnliif,- their new
positions and that they have succeeded
In checking the German advance, but
minors pci-sint that tho army of General
Iteimcnkampf has been very badly cut
up in tho latest fighting.
Discussing the situation in Hast Prus
sia. "War Minister SuMiomllnoff said:
Our purpose In Kast Prussia suc
ceeded bi-yotid expectations. Kffcc
lliely co-opi rating with her allies,
linaxlu, sent forces Into Prussia to
diaw from the west German forco.i
tliat would have otlierwlso been able
to help the armies Invading l-'iante.
Our saciltlccs weio costly, but the
purpose for whleli thoy were mado
was aecompllslied. The presiuro upon
Pranc.i was lolleved by tho advnuco
of General Itennenkanipl' upon Koe
nigsborg. When Gonci-al iteimonkampf entered
Priihsla. ho know that hu could iu
celvi. but hllght assistance. Xovor
thclufri he penetrated far into tho
enemy's country und with his forces
compelled tho Germans to i-iihIi .ev
eral corps from the west. Tho main
olTensivu of the Russian army Is
through Clalleln und Poland and It Is
unlikely that General Kemienknmpf
will bo onlei.'il to ii'Minm the on'en
slvc again except for purpou-n.s of
ki . ping in Kast Prussia the German
forces t lilt liavo been sent tliere.
At their first attempt to tettirn to
the west nr to strike the leaf of our
Galician finny he will he upon their
Hanks again.
When the history of the war Is writ
ten the feats of General rtenneukampf
may be overlooked in tin more glorious
record of victories won by other com
manders, but tlio darihlng cavalry leader
will nevertheless bo rewarded by the
Ituxriuu Government for his services.

WASHINGTON, .Sept. ll.-Consul-Gt u

cernlng tho city of Vancouver III Uiltlslt
"One of tho principal featuies nnd an
Important asset of Vancouver as the
transportation, commercial nnd Industrial
centto of ililtlsh Columbia Is tho splondld
harbor on which It Is situated. Nature
Is tho Important rnctor In tho creation
of great hnthors, nnd has highly favored
"Hurraid Inlet, tho liaibor proper, ix
tends for i2 miles fioni tho N'auows,
hh the entrance Is called, enBtward to
Port Moody at tho head of the Inlet,
which was first selected ns tho location
for tho terminal wharves and duukn of
tho Canudian Pacific Hallway, tho llrst
of tho transcontinental lines to teach tho
Urltlsh Columbia coast In l&SS. liatcr
when tho 1'nimdlan P.iclflo Hallway ex
tended Us lines further west und decided
to consttuet Itn terminals on the south
shore of Hurrard Inlet, on the silo where
Vancouver stands now, the foundations
were laid for tho gi cutest seaport und
shipping imtro In tin Cunudlau Wci-t.
Tl.o inlet, 1 miles long nnd two miles
wide on tho average, forms nn nrea tit
about HI squnto miles. liMendlng tiorlli
wostcily from a point about seven miles
from tho entrance up tho north shore Is
what Is known as the North Ann, an ex
tension longer than the main Inlet, and
averaging two miles wide.
"Tho tavurahlo featuies of Vancouver
haibor nro nn till the year round open
port, ample anchorage, many miles of
water fiont with depth sulllclcnt for the
largest vessels, perfect security from
weather conditions und accessibility to tin
open sea nnd to tho coast waters of Urlt
lsh Columbia. The waters of tho haibor
nro of a great depth In mldehnnnel, mote
than 30 fathoms In places, while near the
shoro thero Is a depth of water" hi most
plnces of inoro than ." feet. In some
Instances deep water extends so elokc In
that largo vessels can anchor within a
few rods of tho shotc.
"Tho shipping facilities of Vancouver
harbor liavo so far been conllned gen
erally to the south shoio of tho inlet,
where much of tho watorfiouUIs occupied
by sawmills and othor Industries. Rut
the growing shipping Interest will oon
require practically all tho .vnitli shore
and Is already extending to the ninth
shore, where largo docks, wharves nnd
shipbuilding plants arc being construct, d.
Within a fow years tho factories nlon
tho inlet within the corporation limits
will give way to whai-fngo and docks, as
the sites nro becoming too valuable for
mnuiifnetinlng purposes.
"Extensive improvements me being
mado to accommodate the Incre.i.iiiig

million dollars will bo spent tills jcar,
and when tho new Government and pil
vato docks, wharws and dredging
schemes planned and under construction
aro completed tho facilities of the hatlior
will bo greatly Inct eased, making tho
Vancouver harbor one of the best on tlio
Pacific coast.
"In addition to the deop water luubor
of Hurrard Inlet the need.t of smaller
craft have also been provided for In tin
shallow waters of alse Cicek, a small
inlet running just south of and paiallel
with the main body of water. P.ilhe

In a small Indiana city when ho was ap
proached bv a stronger who aald:
"Whafs the matter with this town, any

wards. "I don't live hero, I'm pleased
to nay."
Then, nccordliig to Edwards, the tron

"Hav you got a snake-blto?" the conn
ter-Jumper osked me. I told htm no
"liavo S'otl got a prescription?" ho asked
again. I didn't havo any prescription.
" 'Well, you'd belter get out and got
prescription,' ho said. He gave mo A
list of the town's doctors, with tholr ad
dresses. Tho first jilaee I went to theri
were nbntit 20 people nhend of mo wait

nn hour and a half I managed to sco
him. Ho said tliat ho could not wrlto

but gave mo a bromide, which I dldn'6
nepd. Tho next doctor was out, so thnt
saved time. Tho third doctor, after mak
ing mo Walt a half hour, told mo ho
eonld do nothing for me.
"After that I went back to the druir
slore nnd told the clerk my troubles.
" 'Well, there t just ono chnnco left for
