Immigra- tion leaves for more peaceful lands. Following the Frasco-Prussiau war, Baited States witnessed one of the greatest Immigration, movements in all its history. Following the pres- ent war, it is certain there will be a facing toward and a movement to the North American continent o{ Euro- pean people.

THE INVADERS ARE GIVING WAY The progress made iy Allies has been more than maintained, and thi' German forces are being, ertdaat- ly rigorously .pasha! back. In cross- Ing-, the. river the British troops are .holding the east line of battle on the Boath on what Is known as the llarne line, and the German troops are ap- parently falling back on Ssislnre, Bouth of the river. The crucial point of the Una of bat- tie is the enemy's centre, towards which a wedge-like movement is being order to datach tne German, east and west wings. The indications generally point to continued success by the Allies. In no case has any important repulse been effected. On the other haad it is Known that'the Germans have been driven back at one end of the line to Titrv le Francois, about 100 miles to the east of Paris 'j The surmise that the Germans hare retired in a northeasterlv direction to- ws-'-'is Bpernay that they; t endeavoring to break through to pre- vent an attack on both aides. Unless there is some hidden motive in the retirement the movement is being forced under heavy pressure. If the Germans over reach the gates of Paris they will not. find them iays the Vancouver Sun.

Sept. ctoreitfondeiit sendi the foUtfviaff from Arcoull, September 4: I just fall- en in with a deUchment of wounded French soldiers retuniins from the northern tattleftolda. Oho of them gave mo his diary to read. In lie otin- piloity, Its in its revelation of the human, individual sid% of tills monstrous war, which is only redeem- ed by the virtues which still rostit its brutality, it seems to me a document of amazing interest. One passage in. it will arrest the attention of all read- ers, it is an extraordinary and almost incredible incident of a German avia- tor and his inty child, whom he took with him on his mission of death. But I reproduce the whole document now. as I copied it under the gaslight, su rounded by the French regiment. Here, in the review of this sergeant sap- pers, fs a narrative more eloquent than polished prose of the meaning and business of war. H Is not less in- teresting because the man's work wus :o prepare the way for the withdrawal of the French army from point to point. "August started for St. QusnUn, and arrived in evening.
