COALDALE THAT KAISERISM Tjondon, Aug. 2, via Router's Ottawa Agency.-A representative of neuter's Interviewed a citizen of Liege who has escaped from Belgium. He, confirms the reports of continued Brutal treatment of the Belgian people by the Germans. At an Infirmary out-Ride Liege station ho witnessed the arlval of train after train of repatriated deportees. Only a small proportion of mon came back at all, and they are exhausted and useless for work. Houter's Informant continued: "Many of these men detrained at Liege because of their conditions. Never shall I forget what I saw. The trains contained 500 and some times 000 men and women, who for three days had been practically without food. A great many had their feet and loge frost bitten, and had to be carried on stretchers. They hod been obliged to walk for hours in their shocking feet In the snow and often gangrono had set In and death had occurred. Eighty per cent, were stricken with tuberculosis and will never work. Such is the result of a few months spent in the German prison camps. "But � the physical tortures were not worse than the moral trials of those who have come back. One of these men whom I attended kept repeating In his delirium the same cry, 'I will not sign It; I will not sign It.' Making a movement us if pushing something away. He finally died in my arms. "As an old woman who was waiting for her son said to mo: 'It is enough to make stones weep.'" FURIOUS ARTILLERY FIRE London, July 30, via Router's Ottawa Agency.-Tho representative of Heuter's at the headquarters of the British army in France, telegraphing Sunday, says: "The week has boon one of Intense heat, furioui gun lire, incessant re connaissancos and much sharp local fighting. There has been tremondous artillery firing north of Armentleres and near Lens, causing the Huns anxiety and heavy casualties. Tho wind has beftt generally favorable for the . use of gas, and we profited by this ) condition to repay the Germans' devilment to the fullest extent. Even during tho night artillery activity diminished but slightly, increasing to its most intense fury at dawn. The enemy shelled our rear communications at intervals with high velocity guns but his firing on our batteries was rather promiscuous, being chiefly carried out during tho darkness. Our counter-battery work was most successful, direct hits being obtained on dozens of gun pits, while numerous ammunition dumps were exploded. WAS HELD UP. Washington, Aug. 2.-National prohibition by constitutional amendment was hung up In the house today by tho prohibition leaders themselves. The resolution to submit the proposal to the states passed by the senate was put out of tho programme for the present session and will not come np until.the regular session In December. Plans to reconvene the democratic caucus and reverse Its decision to consider only war legislation were abandoned because it was believed delaying action until the next session >lil help the prohibition causa. London, Aug. 2.-The following is a fuller report than it has been possible to publish hitherto of the speech in the reichstag debate of July 19 by I loir limine, In behalf of tho minority Socialists. He began by saying that Instead of plain dealing from the chancellor they had an ambiguous � statement only about peace preparations, though the chancellor admitted explicitly that tho peace, resolution was open to a variety of interpretations. , Micliaelis, he said, was tho nominee of Hlndcnburg and the general staff. Haase continued: "There Is a growing feeling among the masses that the monarchy Is a failure and that a republic will and must come. This would bo the best' prelude to peace but democracy wilt only come by fighting for it, and not by fawning on the authorities, "If tho war Is to continue much longer the German nation will bleed to death and fall from exhaustion. "For months tho public has been deluded with promises about the collapse of England. But It now realizes thnt tho figures entirely omit the fact that tho tonnage of the whole world is at the disposal of England and consequently it is stupid to compare the losses with tonnage belonging to England alone. Yet the chancellor once more states that England will bo unable to resist the need for peace, thus feeding the peoplo on fallacious hopes. "Though the peace resolution Is an advance on our previous attitude, it is not acceptable to the minority party. What the resolution says about the origin of the war Is not tenable in tho face of history, and the minority refuses to lend itself to declarations at variance with the truth. "The same applies to the shallow explanations of the chancellor. We do not forget the Austrian ultimatum to Serbia, the Austrian preparation against Russia, the conferences in Berlin on July 5, 1914, and the activity of Tlrpltz and Falkenhayn In those dayB. "Influential parties, Including the center, still demand the annexation of Belgium and Indemnities'. Has Dr. Spahn fairly abandoned his Belgium program and is the demand for Indemnities still put forward? "As to the freedom of the seas, this always exists in time of peace. The only way to guarantee it is by universal disarmament and abolition of tho rights of capture. "Regarding tho attempt to effect a separate peace with Russia, nobody can believe that tho peace resolution, without a word about self-determination by nationalities, will have a good effect abroad. As a matter of fact Russia has the greatest distrust of the Gorman government and Its supporters, nor will the majority Socialists declaration in Sweden be more efficiacious. It has been condemned by all enemy and neutral Socialists. "The feeling of the people as the result of the leaden weight of hunger is such as to startle even the most frivolous. You have read of riots and strikes in Silesia. Do you think the masses can possibly endure it much longer? It is impossible, and when the crash comes you must not be surprised. The workers know better every day how they must act. If they are to achieve what they have at heart they; will rise against the conditions." What Is Uric Acid ? THE CAUSE OP BACKACHE, RHEUMATISM, GRAVEL. AND SUDDEN DEATH. ' Ever linoe the discovery of urio aeM In the blood by Scheele, in 1775, and the bad effect it had upon the body, cientista and physicians have striven to rid the tissues and the blood of this poison. Because of it* over- eundanee in the system it causes okaobe, pains here and there, rheumatism, gout, gravel, neuralgia and sciatica. It was Dr. Pierce who discovered ft new agent, called "Anuric," which will throw out and completely radicate this urio acid from the ays* era. "Anuric" has proved to be 37 times more potent than lithia, and consequently yon need no longer fear muscular or articular rheumatism or Sout, or many other diseases which arc ependent on an accumulation of urio old within the body. Rend to Or. .1 Pierce, of the Invalids' Hotel and 8ur-* gical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., for a ~ pamphlet on "Anuric," or send 10 cents ! for a trial package of "Anuric Tablets." If you feel that tired, worn-out jleellng. backache, neuralgia, or if your leep is 'disturbed by too frequent rlnatlon, go to your beet drug store jnd ask for Dr. rfurce's Anurio Tablets.

London, Aug. 2.-Admiral Sir John .Telllcoe, first sea lord and chief of tho naval staff, In Bn interview with tho Associated Press yesterday, discussed the naval situation at the end o� the third year of tho war. Sir John said: "Tho fourth year of the naval war opens this week and only tlioso who are familiar with German naval literature-which preached the doctrlno of tho offensive-can appreciate tho significance of naval events during the past three years. The German high seas fleet was not created that it might remain Inactive. It ia a great war engine. No greater mistake can be made than to underestimate Its strength. 'The British grand fleet has offered it a challenge to action which has not been acepted, for on the occasion of the battle of Jutland the Germans had no thought of a fight to a finish. For tho whole year now tho high seas fleet has ventured only beyond its protected mine fields on ono occasion-August 21 last year-and then It speedily sought shelter onco more. "Owing to the attention which tho novo! and barbarous submarine warfare has attracted there is perhaps a tendency to forget that success of our grand fleet In containing the main German force on which the succesB or failure of tho allied course Is mainly dependent. The grand fleet is tho foundation, upon which all tho efforts of the allies rest. "What has It done. For a period of three years It has robbed tho Germans of all advantages which they expected to reap from tho possession of a strong batle fleet. The Germans calculated that they would strike when their fleet would be at a maximum strength and that they would catch our grand fleet at a moment when, owing to the absence of ships undergoing repairs the odds were little if anything against them. They have not been permitted to carry out that scheme. "We cannot permit them, for instance, to emulate the example of Villeneuve when he eluded Nelson off Toulon and cruised to tho West Indies and then got back to port again, having suffered little Injury as the result of Calder's action. No, we must not contemplate such a break-out on tho part of tho Germans, particularly now that the American people require pcaco and security In order to mobilize their enormous fighting power. "It is sometimes suggested that wo ought to adopt a more offensive policy against the German high sens fleet. We are face to face with tho old problem-how to force a fleet which hides in n harbor to c.omo out and fight. It is a very old problem. "A superior ficet can force an enemy fleet Into port, but If It. is to bo compelled to come out against its will, hlBtory suggests that compulsion must be applied by the army acting against Us base or bases. "1 need not say any mora on that Issue except to suggest that naval power and military power nro complimentary one to the other. The navy alone cannot win n war as history has always shown and the army alone cannot triumph as tho Germans have learned."
