LONDON, Oct. 13.
The lines arc slithering for a general
engagement along the, banks of tho
River I-iVH, tho reinforced Allies against
the German army which Is attempting
an encircling movement toward Ostend
and tho coast.
Although not ofllclally confirmed by
the Press Bureau there Is no doubt hero
of the truth of the repotted occupation
of Ghent by tho German forces. Tho
city Is only 12 miles southeast of Loko
ron, where It was known that the Ger
mans were concentrated In force.
Tho capture of Lille by the Germans
Is reported from Paris, but the French
state this reverse has been offset by
gains between Ai ras and Albert, and at
Tho Feat of tho Belgian Government
hereafter will be Havre, Franco, ac
cording to dispatches from Bordeaux
Thcro Is an unconfirmed report from
Amsterdam that German artillery Is
(Bruges is only fourteen miles south
east of Ostond.)
A Times correspondent in the north
of Franco reports strong German
columns of all arms passing through
Balllcul, In tho French department of
tho Nord, in the direction of Ypres,
which is 2G miles south of Ostend.
Around Ypres the Germans have con
centrated In heavy numbers.
That tho Allies themselves bollovo
tho Germans will bo able to take
Ostend If they can get their heavy
Elcgo guns in range of tho city is in
dicated by a dispatch to tho Times,
which -says that by tho end of the
week 100,000 refugees from Belgium will
have been lam'ed in England.
"If tho Germans surround Ostend on
tho land side and lay slego to the city
successfully !t is bclloved that tho
troops defending tho port will bo placed
on board transports when it comes timo
to escape, and will likely bo taken to
an English port. The wreck of the
Belgian army, under King Albeit, is
now in Ostend, according to unofficial
reports from across the Channel.
The Standard's Ostend correspondent
Bays that German spies rue being nr
rested In Ostend pvery day, Ono Ger
man ofllcer, wearing tho Belgian uni
form, was nrrested and mobbed in the
Hue de la Chappello. Another, dis
guised as a peasant, was arrested while
Five thousand of tho British marines

magazine of Fort "Wavro-St. Catherine
was caused by a German spy.

This morning's session was the first of

of the various committees.
A centre for an ndmlrlng and an en

known to everybody. "Uncle George," up
until tho time of his retirement last year,
had been for 60 years associated with the
stationery business In one form or an
other, but chleily as a salesman.
As a result of his long years of serv

from one end of the country to the other,
from the centres of the ttade In the large
cities to the outlying districts where sta

as due the dean of his profession.
The convention Is unique for the num

are In attendance.
Another special feature arranged prlr

newspapers nnd peanut bags at late com

with harmless missiles Every good shot
at these targets brought forth a demon

It moved around from the rear or first
