Undoubted- ly HowellB "Abolish the Bar" policy could have been carried had all the professing temperance people sup- ported it. There is an agitation in Saskatche- wan for advanced temperance legisla- tion and the Hegina Leader, the chief journalistic supporter of the Liberal government there, discusses the tem- perance situation in this way. "The result of the elections in both Ontario and Manitoba must be to somewhat discourage Liberals who are inclined to favor temperance mea- sures from relying upon them. A strong temperance platform does not change the votes of leaders of the temperance party who are honored and looked upon as leaders, and there ifc no doubt that of tem- lirance'voters followed their leaders, ir J.

Aikins and NEWS OF WAR FROM SPECIAL EDITION ISSUED THIS MORNING NINETEEN GERMAN WARSHIPS WERE SUNK LONDON, AUG. ADMIRALTY ANNOUNCED THAT BRITISH COAST- WISE SHIPPING ON THE EAST COAST IS NOW SAFE, BECAUSE THE BRITIhH FLEET HAS ENGAGEDJTHE GERMANS ON THE HIGH SEAS AND THh GERMAN FLEET IS NOW BEING CHASED TOWARD THE COAST OF HOLLAND-KLatest Bulletin received by Herald at 8.45.) NINETEEN GERMAN WARSHIPS REPORTED SUNK London, Aug. was announced here at 1.45 this morning that the British fleet has engaged the German ships on the high seas. According to one report the Germans arc being driven towards the coast of Holland under the terrific rain of tons of shot and shell from the big guns of Sir John Jellico's battleships. The many persistent circumstantial reports of the naval Bght suggest that the ru- mor has a basis of truth. Incoming fishing boats brought the first cohesive stories of fighting to Lowestoft. The fishermen said they had seen a lively scrap between two de- stroyers. After that there was a succession of reporfs from east coast towns that ord- ers had been issued for the preparation of hospitals. A ship owner at Whitby has announced that he has been informed that a great battle has been fought and 19 German warships have been sunk. The people of Hull, Grimsby and Harwich are convinced of the truth of this reported battle and have been straining their eyes seaward but have seen nothing. There is great excitement all along the east coast, Kirkwall reports prolonged firing to the eastward. The Orkneys and Kirkaldy make similar reports and say that the firing appeared to be off the Firth of Forth. London, Aug. Spencer Churchill, First Lord of the British Admiralty, announced in the House of Commons that there had been no fight- ing and no-losses of any kind other than had already been officially made publia. London, Aug. trawler reports having seen British warships chasing and firing on German torpedo boats off the Suffolk coast. Kepoiib are continually being received from var- ious points on the northeastern coast of England and Scotland telling of the sound of firing of heavy guns and some wouiided. Both English and Germans have been brought ashore at Har- wich. It is assumed that the fleets are nearing each other and that scoutships or cruisers have had occasional brushes. FLEETS ENGAGED GERMANS LOSING London, Aug. British fleet has engaged the German fleet on the high seas. The Bri- tish warships are reported to be driving the Germans toward the Dutch coast. FIRST BRITISH LOSS REPORTED London, Aug. Admiralty report says that the British cruiser Amphion was sunk this morning by striking a mine. Paymaster J. T. Gedge and 130 men were lost. The captain, 16 officers and 135 men were saved. A previous report said that the German-mine layer Koenigen Louise had probably placed some mines before she was sunk by the British torpedo boat Lance. The Amphion was a light cruiser of 3440 tons. She was attached to the third destroyer fleet under Captain Cecil H. Fox, commanding officer. Her regular complement was 292 men. She was commissioned in April, 1913.', BRITISH STEAMER'DESTROYED BY MINE Antwerp', Aug. was reported here today that the British tank steamer San Wilfredo, of 928 tons, which arrived at Hamburg from New Orleans, July 29, and was on her return voy- age, had been destroyed by a" mine off -Cuxhaven, Germany.
