Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VH. SPECIAL EDITION LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 13, 1914 PRICE FIVE CENTS NUMBER 206 TITANIC NAVAL BATTLE IN PROGRESS? THAT KAISER'S ARMY AND NAVY WILL BOTH STRIKE TOGETHER THE FOOT TOGGERY Carries Everything in Footwear for Dress or Work Guar- anteeing a Maximum of Comfort for a Min- imum of Cost W. J. Nelson Co. 620 3rd Avc. S. SherUck Block ARMIES AND NAVIES OF ALLIES IN CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY London, Aug. today awaits news of great happenings at sea and on land where her forces and those of her allies are in contact with the enemy. Official information received here has led to the hope that the Ger- man fleet has taken the offensive as was expected it would when the first de- cisive land battle impended. !l! DEATH GRAPPLE ON THE MEUSE Everything points to the probability that 'the allied armies of England, France and Belgium are in a death grapple with the Kaiser's army of the Meuse which has advanced from Liege in the direction of Brussels. The allied troops are believed to be at least equal in numbers to the Ger- man forces and confidence is felt that they will be able not merely to check, but to push back, and perhaps smash the invading army. HOPE TO BREAK GERMAN felGHT WING Should the event equal this anticipation the right wing of the huge Ger- man line in which a million men are said to be stretched over a distance of 150 miles, will have been broken and rolled back, leaving the armies in Luxem- burg and on the Moselle which are in daily outpost contact with the French forces operating from the fortresses "of Verdun, Nancy and Epinal as bases in a precarious situation. So "serious does the German dilemma appear that it is said there is reason to believe that the Kaiser's troops will not even attempt to give battle in Bel- but will withdraw and'fall back on the centre of the line. SEA FIGHT HANGS IN BALANCE The prospect of a sea fight is looked forward to calmly though there is no attempt to underrate the courage or fighting capacity of the German'fleet. It is recognized that with a numerous squadron of submarines and an aerial escort of Zeppelin bomb throwers, the German navy may with luck on its side counterbalance in large measure the overwhelming numerical and gun preponderance of the British ships. By the silence of the Admiralty, the repeated warnings to fishermen, and general feeling that Germany will at-tempt to strike at once on sea and land, lead to the, belief that a battle is imminent in the North Sea. Englishmen have lost none of their pride and confidence in their navy, and are firm in the conviction that in gunnery, seamanship and other quali- ties, the British navy will maintain its' traditional greatness when it meets the German fleet. That there will be heavy losses in men and ships is expected, but England is ready to pay the price of victory. j The land struggle, it is believed, will be the greatest ever fought in the history of war. Britain and Austria are in a State of War ____s London, is officially announced that a state of war has exist- d between Great Britain and Austria-Hungary since midnight. BIG BATTLE IN PROGRESS At MUELHAUSEN- Ldndon, Aug. despatch from the French foreign minister issued by the French embassy here today, reiterates that the French troops behind uelhfuisen, Alsace, "have not retired, but have victoriously resisted an en- tire German army corps." TURKEY WILL HAVE TO EXPLAIN Paris, Aug. is declared that the alleged purchase by Turkey the German cruisers Goeben and Breslau as announced at Constantinople prob- ably will be the subject of a demand for explanations on the part of France and her allies. Mobilizing a Second Canadian Contingent Ottawa, Ont., Aug. Sam Hughes, Minister of Militia, announ- ces that a second Canadian contingent will be mobilized immediately after the departure of the first expeditionary army to Europe. The second division will consist of from to men, and will be kept in reserve. Whether the Second army goes abroad or not will depend upon developments and the re- quirements of the British War Office. It is thought wise to be prepared for emergencies either at home or abroad. The second army will be made up from the lists of men who have already volunteered.
