Not a Paying Proposition.
Two Years Old.
With hundreds of passengers from nil
parts of the European war zone on board
the American Line ste.inipslilp Dominion
landed at the Washington avenue wharf
from Liverpool, this tnornlntr. The liner
arrived after an uneventful voyage, on
which no obstacles were encountcrtd.
"not even a German cruiser," ns Captain
W. E. Ingham put It.
But If the voyage of the hhlp was un
eventful the experiences encountered by
many of the passengers on the continent
were different. Many of the passengers,
and particularly the women, have ex
periences of nil sorts to relate.
A giaphlc story of the occupation of
Hrussels by the CJcrmau forces was told
by Miss Elizabeth Doerr. of this city,
who left Brussels a day after the arrival
of the German army there.
"I shall never forgot the sight," said
Miss Doerr. "One million men, like a
great rolling cloud, passed through the
city, It took them three dny.s and three
nights to do It, and when they got through
Brussels was loiagcd. Theie niid hardly
a bit of food In the city. Not n drop of
milk could be gotten. All the food stores
and waiehousea weie emptiid by the
Get mans and the palace and public
houses wore occupied by the new Ger
man garrison left behind by tho main
ui my.
"It was on Augut-t 3) early In the morn
ing when we received order! that all Hags
hut tho German and the Anieilciti Hags
must bo lemnved from sight. A .short
time after the lecelpt of this order the
first German officer, I tiling on a bicycle,
entered the city. We saw him, for, en
couiHgid by the report from the American
legation that tho city would bo .sur

chance and went out for a promenade.
