This is the month of August, according to men's talk; and now the sprightly to gist lays in his winter stock. His heavy clothes he's getting, big ship ments every day, while yet we're sorely sweating and shooing flies away. The urbane, genial geez ers who run the hardware store are chucking ice cream freezers where they'll be seen no more; and from dark hiding places, in attics or in sheds, they bring, with cheerful faces, last winter's skates and sleds. The corn is turning yellow, the grass will shortly die, the pumpkin's grow ing mellow, and almost fit for pie. So let us prize and cherish fair August's sizzling heat, for it will shortly perish, the warmth that can't be beat. The gladsome flies that cheer us will seek another dime, for autumn's drawing near us, and good old winter time. It's surely rather funny that o'er free heat we fret, for soon we'll pay out money when we would raise a sweat. Around the old baseburner, all shivering, we'll squat, and wish we could return <>r relapse to August hot. So let all lads and lasses enjoy this happy month; in even- year that passes it cometh onlv oneth. WALT MASOX. ASSERTS GERMAN VIEW OF THE WAR IN EUROPE Chamber of German-American Com merce in New York Issues Statement. The press bureau of the Chamber of German American Commerce, Inc., New York, has issued a statement in reference to the contention of Germany as regards the war In Europe. It follows: "We beg to call your attention to the following statement printed in a leading article of the Evening Post Friday, Au gust 14, on the war attitude in England: A neutrality league has been formed. It at once gained numerous adherents. It spread its protests broadside. And a host of enlightened Englishmen hastened to array themselves against the war party. Among them was the editor of the Economist, still the chief financial guide of England, with clergymen, professors, philanthropists and honorable women not a few. One begins to understand why John Morlev, veteran liberal and friend of learning and progress, should have been so moved by all this demonstration that he resigned from the cabinet rather than put his name to a declaration of war.' Classed as Striking Document. One of the most striking documents put u-Jt was an 'Appeal to Scholars.' signed by Oxford and Cambridge professors. Those who have lightly maintained that til Englishmen were mad to strike a death-blow at Germany, should at least We given pause by such a passage as the following from this university appeal: We regard Germany as a nation leading ihe way in the arts and scicnce. ana we have all learned and are learning l on? German scholars. War upon her in the interest of Servia and Russia will bv a sin against civilization. If by reason o? honorable obligations we be unhappily involved in war, patriotism might still ovr mouths, but at this juncture we con .- d?*i- ourselves justified in protesting :igainst being drawn into the struggle ?v itii a nation so near akin to our own. i ;t!id with whom we have so much in I common.* "This shows that the contention of: < iermany that the present war is one of Teuton civilization against Slavic bar barism is appreciated by the Intelligent i-eople in England." Large Immigration to Follow War. While the figures of the bureau of Im migration for the first two weeks In August show a marked decline in thej immigration to this country from Eu-1 ropean ports, nevertheless Commis-' Moner General Caminetti of the bureau of immigration anticipates a very marked increase at the conclusion of the hostilities.

DEFENDS THE KAISER AGAINST HIS CRITICS Representative Bartholdt Declares Germany Has Been Peace maker of Europe. "Germany has been the peacemaker and England the troublemaker of Eu i rope," Bays Representative Bartholdt of | Missouri, the leader of the interparlia mentary peace movement in Congress. I Representative Bartholdt, in a signed statement Issued yesterday, defends the I kaiser against the as3aults of critics, Mr. ! Bartholdt says: I "Thrice armed is he whose cause is | just, and I sincerely believe right and J justice and morality to be the mottoes inscribed on the German banners in this titanic struggle for self-preservation. '?To blame the German emperor is an impeachment as unjust as it is untrue. The impartial history will bear out the assertion that Germany has been the peacemaker and England the trouble maker of Europe. Greatest Predatory Expedition. "No matter how the gigantic trouble will terminate, this war will go down in history as the greatest predatory expedi tion the world has ever witnessed, and England and France will never be able to wipe from their escutcheon the stig ma of participation in it. While Germany is waging a war of self-defense against spoliation and annihiliatlon by two west ern powers, she is also lighting for her very existence and her life against Slav domination threatened by Russia. "If she succumbs against the one side or the other, her splendid civilization, era bodying the highest achievements of edu cation, art, and science, will in either event be trampled under foot by the Cos sack. "Let me disabuse the minds of many as to any difference of opinion between the kal&er and his people. They are ab solutely one and one soul for the preser vation of the fatherland. The emperor nas acted merely as the agent of the na tion. carrying out its will, and he wouia have endangered his crown if he had acted otherwise."

An. drews Talk at Open-Air Services. That Russia's ambition to procure a gateway to the Asiatic sea will now be realised was the belief expressed by Rep resentative Simeon D. Fess of Ohio in an address at the open-air meeting held in Lincoln Park yesterday. "Russia," he said, "with a territory equal to one sixth of the globe, will then become the strongest commercial nation through her trade with the orient" Mr. Fess believed the fruits of the present war probably would be the elimi nation of enmity between nations through world-wide peace treaties. He reviewed the causes leading up to the present war. War, except when waged in a struggle for the emancipation of human rights, is contrary to religion, according to Wil liam E. Andrews, auditor of the United States Treasury, who spoke at the open air services at Stanton Park. He said that the struggle of the American colo nies for Independence was one of the few wars which were justified. The serv ices were conducted under the auspices ot the Y. M. C. A. LOCAL SH0WEBS THIS WEEK. Will Feature Weather Conditions, With Temperatures Above Normal. Local showers are to feature the weath er situation this week, says the weather bureau. Temperatures somewhat above the normal were predicted for the north ern and central portions of the country. "There will be thundershowers over the northern and central areas east of the Rocky mountains during the first half of the week," said the bulletin, "and! locally and occasionally during the second half. "In the south Atlantic and gulf states local thundershowers will continue with seasonable temperatures, while in the ex treme west generally fair weather will prevail." FOB DOWNTOWN SECTION. Postal Facilities at Stations Follow ing Removal of Post Office.

In this county the polls will be at the usual places and will be open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. There will be no registration preceding the primary elec tion, as heretofore, but September 22 and 23 and October 6 and 7 the officers of registration will sit for a general regis tration of voters.

Montgomery county sportsmen, espe cially those with a fondness for hunting squirrels, are much dissatisfied with the state-wide game law passed by the last legislature, which fixes the season for shooting all kinds of game from Novem ber 10 until December 34. Harry L. Black of Washington was ar rested here yesterday on a charge of running his automobile in excess of the speed limit of twelve miles an hour fixed by a Rockville ordinance, and George i Anderson of Culpeper, Va., a motorcy clist, was arrested on a similar charge. Each was required to deposit collateral In the amount of $0.75 for his appearance here for trial. Under the old law the squirrel season began August 10 and lasted until Decem ber 24, and hunters contend there was no good reason why the law should have been curtailed. It is claimed that the law practically kills the squirrel-hunting sport until the law Is repealed, as after No vember 10, by which time the squirrels will have built their nests and are feeding on nuts, very few of such an|mals are seen and fewer still are gotten within gunshot distance. C. Fenton Howes of the vicinity of Seneca, this county, is under arrest on a charge of violating the local option law of the county. It is represented that he sold a quantity of gin to a man named Mossburg. He will be tried in the police court here within the next day or two. THINK GILA MONSTERS WOULD HURRY BUSINESS Remedy for Unnecessary Discussions j In Congress Proposed by Mis souri Statesmen. Representative Walter Hensley of Mis souri find Senator Stone of the same state, have discovered what they think will be an effective method of cutting oft useless talk in conferences and bringing about an adjournment within a few days. The scheme contemplates the purchase of a few large and vigorous Gila monsters to be turned loose in the Senate and House to nip tile more verbose members who are blamed with talking too much and thereby keeping Congress in Wash ington in the hot months. "In understand," said Senator Stones to Representative Hensley. "that the gila monster of the Arizona plains has a bite which is not always fatal, but which al ways has a paralyzing effect upon the vocal chords. I wish I could buy a box of these monsters and set 'em loose here in the Capitol with directions to bite only the longest talkers." Representative Hensley agreed the plan was a fine one. He consequently inter viewed. Representative Carl Heyden of Arizona, who said the latest quoted prices on gila monsters, t. o. b. Phoenix, is about $1.10 apiece. The two Missouri statesmen have served notice upon their loquacious col leagues that the time to stop talking and adjourn has arrived. July Fire Lostea, $31,157. Fire losses in the District of Columbia during July amounted to $31,167, ac cording to a report submitted to the Commissioners today by Fire Chief Wagner. This amount represents ap proximately 5% per cent of the total insurance of $539,800. There were five fires in which the loss exceded $1,000. Two of these necessitated the sounding of additional alarms. Established 1865.

No Branch Houses. "Six" Walker's Benefit. With Thespia directing the perform ance, Abou Ben Adhem in charge of the box office and a theater-packed audience to pay tribute to both, the big: benefit at Poll's last night proved the success its inspiration deserved. No other oc casion of the summer's dramatic sea son could hold the proverbial candle to it for the reason that it stood for some thing more important than a mere dra matic event. Everybody in the crowded house knew why the members of Wash ington's two stock companies were giv ing a joint performance on the same stage, and the knowledge provided the touch of human nature that made au dience and cast akin. The beneficiary, "Six" Walker, a good and able stage hand, was injured while at work some time ago, and last niglrt's benefit was the spotlight's tribute to the wings. The combined orchestras of the Co lumbia and Poli theaters. Henry F. Smith, directing, opened the perform ance with the overture from "William Tell," and the first number was con tributed by the Nordica Mandolin and Guitar Club, led by Walter T. Holt. The same musicians played the dance music for the "salon dansant artists," Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Holt. Carrie Thatcher and George Barbier were a humorously temperamental couple j in a farce. "The Happy Pair," and Miss Thatcher later appeared in vocal selec [ tions that captured two rccalls. Marie Carroll and Russell Filmore in a vaude ! ville skit, "Just a Few Moments," gave | character songs and dances, and a*melo | dramatic touch was given by Carl Brick ert. Dorothy Bernard and A. H. Van i Buren presented Dr. Andrew Stewart's underworld sketch, "The Pinch." An other emotional feature was contributed by Stanley James and John M. Kline in Richard Harding Davis' playlet, "The I Littlest Girl," Baby Kline, a tiny crumb of a child, realistically supplying the character that gave the sketch its name. Gretchen Hood sang the "Polonaise," from "Mignon," with Mrs. A. L. Goodhue at the piano. The same pianist accom panied Miss Agnes Whalen, who also sang. Both singers were enthusiastically received. "Dexterous?the Man of Mys tery"?wrote names backward, forward, i upside down and blindfolded, and Roset ta Burrows and Mary and Doris Eaton gave a May ball flavor to the bill in songs and dances entitled "Children's Phanti cies." Louise Kent in an original monologue harvested more than a fair share of laughter, and Izetta Jewel, A. H. Van Buren and Dorothy Bernard closed the performance with a ludicrous sketch, "In 1990." With Mr. Van Buren as the ad vanced husband crocheting a baby sack, considering his "beauty" and voicing the world-old wail (reversed) that it is "al ways the man who must suffer," and with Miss Jewel and Miss Bernard smok ing cigarettes and outsiriving each other?man-fashion, present-day style? for the love of the timid husband, the audience was given an astonishing hint of what the world is Coming to, via the pen of the author of the sketch, William C. De Mille. Alaska-Siberian Pictures. The Alaska-Siberia motion pictures taken for the Carnegie Institute of Pittsburgh by Capt. F. E. Kleinschmidt, the mighty hunter of big game, shown at the Belasco Theater yesterday aft ernoon and evening, were all and more than the prospectus claimed for them; the far north as never seen before and nature's everlasting drama pre senting scene after scene of excite ment, education and adventure. The far north is shown not to be out of the scheme of creation. It shares in the romance of the physical world as truly as amy part of the ter restrial globe, as shown by the Klein schmidt pictures, taken in situations that thrill with intense life. Wonderful high mountains, snow crowned and awe-inspiring*. Rugged scenery, sublime in beauty: Great i hunks of the sides of huge glaciers, I lining the water front, dropping into the sea in avalanches, raising a far-felt disturbance of tide and sending up showers of waves as they strike the water; Eskimos who live in houses on stilts; Eskimos hermetically sealed into their canoes, in which they can upset, stay under water for minutes, and then right themselves without other aid; birds, birds, birds?millions of them seemingly?perched on rocks, hiding their gaunt sides, and with eggs in every crevasse, each known to the mother hen. Seal and walrus in herds are pictured and under the exact con ditions of their environment and ex istence; fearless polar bears, which pose for their pictures, swim in com panionship about the expeditionary ship and fight for their own lives and those of their young with vicious cour age and tremendous strength; scenes of the salmon industry, showing saln;ion and cod caught in countless shoals rather than hundreds; elk and reindeer under the strangest conditions are shown. Capt. Kleinschmidt's success in get ting views at close range of wild ani mails is the remarkable feature of these motion pictures. FAIL TO ARREST MAN WHO INVADED C. L. HILL'S ROOM Burglar Thought to Have Been Wounded in Tussle Not Re ported at Hospitals. The police of the second precinct have not succeeded in arresting an unidenti fied man who was found in the apart ment of Charles L. Hill at the Loretto, 1314 11th street northwest, early Satur day morning-. Three shots were fired, the police were told, and Mr. Hill thought that one of the bullets wounded the burglar, but 110 such wounded person has applied for treatment at a Wash ington hospital. It was shortly before 2 o'clock in the morning when the burglar ascended the fire escape at the l^oretto and entered the Hill apartment through an open window. Mrs. Hill saw the form of the intruder and called to her husband. Mr. Hill and the burglar engaged in a struggle about the room, the police were told, and finally the burglar drew a revolver and fired, and the occupant of the apartment was still struggling with him when a second shot was fired. The weapon was pointed during the :ussle in the direction of the burglar, it is thought, and Mr. Hill was con :ident that the bullet struck him. The thrid shot was fired after the bur glar had escaped through the window to the fire escape, the bullet striking the rainspout. It is stated that the burglar was a well dressed man and that he wore a Panama hat. No clue to his identity has been found. $3?'To Atlantic City and Return?93 Sunday, August 23, Baltimore and Ohio, leaving Washington 7:15 a.m. and Atlan tic City 6 p.m. Free transfer in Philadel phia Included.
