The attempt to have the hunting li
censes for this year issued from the
offices of the justices of the peace has
failed. It appears that last year much
time was lost by the manner in which
the licenses were issued, and it was
planned to have books of "tags" sent
to the various offices of the magis
trates in the different towns. This
was done in a number of counties last
season with great success.
Licenses will therefore be issued in
much the same manner as they were
last year. The hunter will go before
the squire and make application. This
year the squire will immediately col
lect the fee. The hunter must hand
the magistrate a stamped self-ad
dressed envelope to be sent to the

PARIS, Aug. (>. —Official an
nouncement is made that the bat
tle continues to rage around Liege,
Belgium. The German shell lire
has reduced two of the Liege forts
but the Belgians continue to re
sist with untiring energy.
The Germans were able to use
their light siege guns against the
forts of Liege, which are 1 years
old. Two of them were silenced
and the German columns broke
through. The other forts are hold
ing out. The Belgians are making
a determined resistance before the
city. The situation at Liege, ac
cording to the latest dispatches,
was as follows:
If the German army succeeds in
carrying Liege it will find itself
confronted by an entrenched camp
at Xamur, at which the Belgians
are preparing to make a stand as
fierce as that at Liege.
The Belgian army was brilliant
ly fulfilling its task of delaying
the German advance, and it ap
peared certain the German staff's
plan ot campaign in Belgium
would be hindered by the obsti
nate stand of the Belgians.
