The White Sox also are thinking of sending a representative to the battlefields of France for the same purpose, as are the Red Sox. Not only will the majors obtain , players from the vkst body of soldier pastimers in Europe, but the minors, too, will depend in a considerable measure upon the doughboys to rebuild their clubs upon the restoration of peace. Minor league scouts already are seeking players among the khaki-clad warriors in France.

After graduation he played with independent teams and later with the Jersey City team of the International League. From 1907 to 1910 he played second base tor the Philadelphia Nationals and the following year was traded to Cincinnati. In 1913 he was purchased by the New York Nationals and played third and shortstop for the Giants until 191u, when be resigned to enter business. At the outbreak of the war he entered an officers' training camp, where,'he was graduated later with high honors. Grant Is the first of the many major league baseball players in the service to give his lite for his country. He was born in Franklin,, Mass., in 1883. ular and ho should allow the play." The ruling of the Boston baseball editor was that the runner coming in from third is out and the hatter who hit to the pitcher is safe at first. The player named French, v.-ho batted the ball thrown to the plate by the pitcher, pulled off a raw case of interference, probably he prevented ths catcher from making a dcul)le play, but as the interference was only on tho play at the plate directly it ends there.

MDii CAVALRY m IE CAIEAU Fort Garry Horse First to Enter the Important Enemy Stronghold PREMIER'S APPEAL FOR VICTORY LOAN Toronto* Oct. 28.-The following appeal to the Canadian people from the prime minister of Canada, Sir Robert L. Borden, is issued today, the first actual working day of {he great Victory Loan catapaign: "More than four years ago Canada, under a high sense of duty, undertook her part in this supreme struggle for the world's freedom. From that time to the present our effort has never slackened and It is at its maximum today. Prom mouth to month and from year to year the world's destiny has hung in the balance. ' The battlellne has happily been far remote from our shores, except for the occasional venture of a submarine raider; but none the less is it our owit battleline which Canadians have held and advanced beyond on occasion. "Now that victory seems in sight we are called upon for the final and supreme effort which will crown the untold('Sacriflce of the years that are behind us. "Canada's purpose has never been more gloriously maintained than during the past four months, in which our forces have been in the forefront of the attacks that are sHU hurling back the forces of the Huns and freeing humanity from the menace of cruel, and relentless militarism., "The final effort cannot be .sustained unless the nation makes ample provision for those who fight Its battles. For that purpose the latest Victory Loan is placed before you. The labors of our people at home have been abundantly rewarded and the national prosperity has never been more fully assured. You are asked to lend in order that your country make keep inviolate its pledge to those heroic men who have gone forth from our shores to fight for our liberties and who under the sternest tests have never shrunk from even the last sacrifice. You have before you both a compelling duty and a great opportunity of service. In any effort to win this war you have never faltered; I am supremely confident that you will not tail now." (Signed) "R. L. BORDEN." LILLE'S GREETING TOT DROVE OUT HUNS Formal Reception to a Division of the British Army-Great Rejoicing THAWYCKllI MAY JtENl) Ottawa, Oct. 28-To the Canada cavalry brigade tell Sie honor of vie-tgriou.sly re-entering Lei Cateau, the historic town on the western front, wlicre British horsemen and the horse artillery of the "contemptible little army" made their splendid stand in the dark days of 1914'. Le Cateau will nhvays be linked with British military history along Willi Mens. Two weeks ago British infantry oc- cupied Le Cateau, which is a centre of great strategical Importance to the enemy, but the first troops to enter the town were the Fort Garry Horse on the night of October 9-10. Their entry marked the attainment of the final objective given the brigade on the morning of the 9th and was the culmination of a brilliant operation, in which all four units played conspicuous parts. In less than 24 hours the cavalry and other troops advanced more than eight miles on a three mile front, cleared this section of the enemy and opened ,the road to Le Cateau for the Infantry. The cavalry captured more than 400 | prisoners, much artillery, trench mortars, antitank guns, motor cars and 100 machine guns. They killed scores of Germans. ADVOCATE INDEPENDENT STATE Copenhagen. Oct. 23.^A.n independent and anti-dynasty party has been foj-med In Hungary under the leadership of Count Michael Karolyi In agreement with the Czechs and south Slavonians, according to Vienna reports received by the Politiken, In an address at Budapest, Karolyi declared he had presented his program to Emperor Charles, who refused to accept it, Karolyi thereupon put into effect his plan for an independent state. With the i British Army in Prance and Belgium, Oct. 29.-^LIlle yesterday opened wide her gates in formal reception to a division of the 5th British- ar^y. She paid a supreme tribute of"" gratitude, to these representatives of the army which a few days ago released her from the heavy hand of German bondage. In 1792 there was a similar day of rejoicing in Lille, when the Austrian siege of the city was broken. A century later came,the centennial celebration of tills event. Yesterday's de- Xonstratioii surpassed both of these. 11 the inhabitants of Lille and many people from the surrounding territory, scores of thousands thronged the streets which were bedecked with flags of the allies to return thanks to their deliverers and cover the war-scarred veterans with flowers. Throughout this vast assemblage moved a spirit of unbounded gratitude that reflected on the faces of the people in sroiles'Of welcome that, mingled with the tears of joy. Lille could have done no more. She gave freely from her heart and no victory could have had a more noble reward than that given to the British, who, when Lille had been freed, chivalrously stepped aside and requested French troops to be asked to be the first to enter the- capital of tho department of the north. The division which was selected by the British to represent the army consisted of territorials who played such a gallant part in driving the invaders trofn the city. These troops marched from one side of the city to the other amid wildly cheering throngs. The main ceremony was held in the centre of the city, about the statue of the spirit of the resi-stance of 1792, where German officers were parading but a brief time ago and impressing their arrogance upon the unhappy Inhabitants. Gathered to receive Lieut.Gen. Wm. R. BIrdwood and his staff were all the dignitaries of the city, headed by the mayor, Charles De La Salic. It had been announced that President Clo-menceau would attend, but he was not present, much to the disappointment of his people. ,{ SAW EMPEROR CHARLES Berne, Oct. 29.-^Baron Chemeoky, the Austi^ian publicist, has arrived in Switzerland, according to the Neue Zeitung of Zurich, which says that bo-fore he left Vienna he had an audience with Emperor Charles. > ? '> ? ? > ? : > : ? : : ? ? All Gerraafn.i are agreed that to bomb the towns of the beloved Fathat> land Is wicked and "contrary to Intoi-' national Law." It is true that tho Kala-or told tho American Ambassndoi some years ago that there was "no longer, liny International Law,", hut naturally he meant that only Germany was froo to disregard It. Tho allies wore still bound. Add to this that nil ! Gorman towns are (for purposes of nit raids) "open" und poncoful, and all Brlllsh towns are tortltiod and occu-pied entirely by troops, and tho wick-eUnoss of the alHca becomes obvious, It is still more flagrant when you ro-member that the treacherous allies ntrodufiod this form of warfare, and that any air-raids by ZoppoUna or Goth-as have been carried out entirely us roprlsuls. All German argument on this sub-joct is of Buch a character that the' more statement of it roads as if It were intended for a joke, but some ot those who argue thus-the ones with very short memories-are perhaps serious when they say that bomb dropping on towns occupied by a civilian population was first practised by the allies. At the same time there are many people in tho allied countries who, while knowing that the Gorman accusation is untrue, yet could not certainly say when and whore this form ot warfare was initiated. A short account ot the first aulhonticaled air raid may therefore be of interest. The place thus signalled out was Lunovillo, a French town some twenty niilBS southeast ot Nancy.A single'aeroplane crossed LuneviUe from west lo east, dropped six bombs and dif.ip-peared. Tho fii-st bomb fell In the garden ot No. 8 Rue Givardet, the house of a Captain de Percy. Little damage was done, and there were no casualties. The second bomb fell at No. 13 Rne Garllardot on tho w orkshop ot a lock smith's establishment. Fortunately the workmen were away, but three thousand francs' worth of damage was done. The third bomb fell in the Rue de Moncel, smashing the wlndov/s and damaging the shop of a florist, M| Hocquard. Tlio fourth bomb fell in the courtyard of a school. It failed to explode, and the little girls played with it next day-a grey-painted pear-shaped thing with the inscription Carboult-Schlcs-busch. Later it was removed by the authorities. The fifth) bomb tell near an Infirmary and the sixth on open ground. The bombs fell at regular intervril.s and roughly in a straight line, showing that there had been jio attempt to aim at any particular objective. Signed statements, were. taken in each ot tlie .six cases, either froti) an eye witness of thg explosion or frtyn the owiiei's'of. the dattiaged p.remlses,,: The uhexploded ,lfomb and/ragmenta of one of the others.was photographed and are now in the possession of the authorities. It will bo seen then that the first air-raid-the air raid on the French town of LuneviUe is well authenticated. And when did this first air raid take place? It took place at 5.45 p.m. on Monday, August 3rd, 1914-^just an/ hour betdre Germany declared war on France. CHICAGO MAN DEAD Chicago, Oct. 29.-William A. Lydot, president of the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock company, and widely known in yachting circles, died at his home here last,, night after an illness ot several months.

MEMBERS TO SUPPORT THE VICTORY LOAN TO OFFICERS AND MEMBERS: Just one year ago today I addressed a circular to you, asking you to purchase Victory Bonds. Your response was most gratifying. The cam'r, paign for another bond sale will begin on the 28th of this month. The rate of Interest on bonds is the same, the country's need for money is the same, the op,-)ortiinlty for a good business Investment Is the same as last year. But I fti'ly realize that financial conditions among farmers this year are very different from last year. Many f.~rmr;r3 will be entirely unable to Invest a single dollar, others will be able to invest a part as much as they did last year, while a few may be able to invert as much or even more than they did last year. Buy at least one bond If you can, and as many more as you can afford to buy. It is a good Investment; It is good security; it is a liquid asset.. The country needs the money, and' the end of the war is In sight. If you cannot Invest $50 in a bond, but can Invest $15 in a life membership, do �0, and ^he UiF.A. wfll Invest it In Victory Bonds. Let each invef^ ap^^dlfig to his or her ability. Hoping that'WiS/aw vSery near the end of the last war, I am, ' '/�^ii|�; Yours most ineerely, ~  : H. W. WOOD, President.
