The port of Montreal is virtually closed tonight for the first time in its history. Today a tug fleet patrolled the lower harbor. A .force of two hundred men were sworn in ''durifigfthTe. evening to ex clude all landsmen from the wharves. Sailors of vessels, in port will be al lowed to leave their" ships only under escort. No vessel will be permitted to come into port or leave without an ex press writ being granted. Five million dollars worth or grain in elevators has been placed under special guard. Ship congestion has already begun with three tramp steamers which should have cleared Saturday still in dock. Twelve tramp vessels are on their way here for grain cargoes for continental ports. Another German vessel, the Witte kindon is on her way to this port; but whether she will arrive here is doubt ful. However, as she carries wireless she can be directed to New-York. - Arrangements are being made to col lect 30.000 horses in Canada, for Eng land's use according to officials of the Live Stock Exchange. , :, ; ' A cable from London ; jjeeterday stat ed that British re-mount inspectors will leave for Montreal immediately should England mobilize- her troops. oi MORE THAN BILLION (Continued from Page One) merit, Mr. Purleson said, "so to re strict the service that money will not be transferred to Europe for specu lative purposes."

Slipping quietly out of port tonight, her su perstructure painted gray, with six thousand tons of coal and no pass engers on board, the German liner Kronprinz Wilhelm may be carrying ffuel to a cruiser not far outside Sandy Hoqk. It is known that the wireless station at Sayville, Long Is land, has been working with a Ger man war vessel, probably not many miles off shore, and said to be the cruiser Karlsruhe. . As required by maritime regula tions, the ' Kronprinz Wilhelm took out clearance papers, ostensibly for Bremen, and it was intimated in quarters suppose dto be well in formed that she would endeavor to make that port by taking a northerly route passing around the northerly end of Scotland. What she might really do after passing out of the harbor, however, is a question for her commanded to determine after he read the orders which which, ac cording to the, interpretation of port officials at' the steamship pier, were to be opened ; after she had passed Sandy Hook. Mystery shrouded the liner's prep arations for departure, and her actu al sailing. On her forward deck she carried: a large box, big enough to contain a naval gun of considerable power. The vessel was constructed for possible use as a German naval reserve unit in case of emergency and her build is strong enough to stand the strain .of firing a gun such as the case might have contained. Ger man Lloyd officials denied, however, that the vessel had been secretly fit ted out for fighting purposes. The box on the deck they declared con tained an extra crankshaft.

Surprised at - Apparent i ; Delay and Believe Diplo- . j inacy Responsible Ger man Steps Precautionary ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. With a hastily drawn map of the .probable theater of war in Europe before them, &rmy strategists here were eagerly scanning news reports of the stirring events that are momentarily taking piace in Germany, Russia and Prance. Some surprise Is expressed by ex perts at the comparatively slow be ginning of the German campaign. The American war . college, patterned dlargely upon that great German war machine known as the. German staff has understood " that so per fectly had every detail of an offen sive campaign . against both France and Russia been worked out by the German kriegspiel players that the first blows would fall like light ning strokes out of a clear sky and that within twenty-four hours after a declaration of war or indeed, after the order of mobilization, the first German battalions would be many miles advanced across both the east ern and western boundaries into the enemy's country. It is believed that the manner in Which the execution of these care fully laid plans could be defeated jwould be the interposition to the ad vance of living walls of French and Russian legions, yet there has been ho- report of battles on any large scale. " ' ' ' , Consequently the belief is express ed among military men here that in visible wires are holding back the dogs of war, and that the full strength of military forces on all sides is being withheld while the statesmen and diplomatists in Euro pean capitals are playing the! rlast cards in a desperate game of diplo macy in the hope now, not of avert ing a general war, but of scoring in dividually such advantages as may be obtained through delayed ac tion. After looking over ll available data on -today's operations, strate gists were unanimously of the opin ion that the plans of the campaign are not so far unfolded as to admit a guess as to the real purpose of the great military leaders. What has been done by the German army in the west in the; invasion of Belgium is .regarded as purely-precautionary, and calculated rather to prevent a possible quick dash ' by French le gions Into the fatherland than it was the purpose of beginning a deliber ate progressive campaign towards Paris. .; The slight clashes reported as hav ing taken place on the border of Jjorraine, are looked upon as Insignifi cant - and mere feints to develop French strength in that quarter. Mil itary maps here disclose an aston ishingly large German military force in' that neighborhood, i There appear to be no less than three army divisions within striking distance of the French frontier on a line less than a hundred miles in length. If a general campaign had been initiated there Is a sufficient German force. In the opinion of the experts here, to have broken through the French line at any point where ihere are ' no great fortresses such as at Naney and Strassburg. ; Of course, according to these same calculations, this German advance might only be temporary, as it is known that the French army is gath ered 4n great strength in the two fortified towns named, and it will be only a question of time before they would fall upon the German flanks in --an effort to cut lines of communi cation and to. isolate, destroy or cap ture, the invading army before it could bring up its reserves. So far as can be discerned here, the German campaign in the east Was on a different basis, and at this stage Is rather defensive than offen sive In character. Reports come irom Berlin that German troops have actu ally crossed the Russian frontier south of Danzig. But (this movement is -believed to be calculated simply harrass the Russians and to re tard the organization of the great army of the czar which must be reckoned with. . , o 5 TO CARE FOR ALL (Continued from Page One)" oil Americans will be able td leave at some later date If any desire so to do." Warship Carries Coin NEW YORK, Aug. 3 The use of a United States warship to carry to Europe $3,500,000 gold for the relief of stranded American tourists was pro posed by New York bankers. Benja- rriln -Strong, Jr. president of the Banker's Trust company departed lor Washington' to make the suggestion to the president. The gold is ready. It was withdrawn from the sub-treasury today and packed In kegs in the vaults oi the trust company. , ' K that 18 needed is the sanction of the president. The sponsors plan it is admitted is An unprecedented one but lb is said the situation requires heroic measures. To ship gold on a liner would.be impracticable at this time. No Insurance company could be found to write ' a. policy on such a shipment which would be liable to seizure by European warships. Should the pro posal meet with the objection of Mr. Strong it is understood they will sug gest to the president that the gold be placed on an American steamship and that a warship be sent with it to insure fts safe passage. . ilf the Pirates had gone on strike and taken with them' their brother Fjeds, how happy the Pittsburg fans woijid, be today. COMPANY A TD Members Must Meet at Ar mory Tonight to Get Ready for Trip to En campment at. Garden Can yon by Special Tomorrow. COMPANY A. FALL IN! Tomorrow is the big day with the National Guard of Arizona, for at 9 o'clock the special train leaves Phoe nix for Garden Canyon, near Fort Huachuca, where the militia men will make their 1914 summer encamp ment.

Eats for the trip must also be arranged for at this time. The special train leaves town tomorrow morning at nine and the companies will be drawn up in readiness to depart not later than 7:30. Members are invited to sleep at the armory tonight, if they wish, but those who do, must have their per sonal belongings they expect to take along, packed and ready for ship ping early the next morning. Company A had a fine attendance at the special drill last night, and everybody is working hard. FRANCE AND GERMANY (Continued from Page One.) burst of cheering the king and queen and Princess Mary appeared on the balcony and bowed their acknowledg ment of the demonstration of loyalty. This did not satisfy the crowds, which chanted "We Want King George" to the tune of "Westminster chimes" and sang "Rule Britannia". This fin ally brought the king and queen out again. They were accompanied by the prince of Wales and received another noisy greeting. The demonstration lasted several minutes and for a long time after the royalties retired the people continued to sing patriotic songs. King George and Queen Mary were also heartily cheered when they drove In the parks this afternoon. Great crowds remained for hours around the palace, the houses of parliament and Downing street. The people were generally undemon strative, apparently being more curious than excited. Occasionally there was cheering as some cabinet minister was seen leaving his office for the house of commons or on his return from the house or when the palace gates clanged. But on the whole Londoners preferred to spend the holiday in their usual quiet manner. As the evening drew on, however, anxiety increased as to the attitude the government intended to adopt and peo ple became more excited. Winston Spencer Churchill, as he walked from the admiralty to the commons, was greeted with cries of "Good Old Win ston." Premier Asquith was greeted in a similar manner and ' escorted from his home to the precinct house by a cheering crowd. Other members of the cabinet as well as members of the house received a cheer as they passed in line, to this historic build ing to hear whaf, England intended to do in the hour of her crisis. John Redmond, Irish nationalist leader, came In for a splendid re ception as he left the house, the news of his speech, in which he said that every soldier could be withdrawn from Ireland, having pre ceded him. Field Marshal Lord Roberts, Mar quis Lansdowne and Andrew Bonar Law, leader of the opposition, who visited the prime minister in Down ing street, were seen surrounded by the great crowd which followed and cheered them, but ambassadors, in cluding the German representative, who went to the foreign office sev eral times, and the Russian represen tative, who sat in the house during Sir Edward Grey's speech, being lit tle known to Londoners, passed un -noticed. When parliament adjourned, a pro cession formed, composed mostly of young men carrying union jacks and the tri-color, marched through Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Leices ter, Square and Piccadilly Circus, singing all the way. The railway stations where con tinental trains arrive and depart pre sented busy scenes throughout the day. Each incoming train brought refugee Americans and Englishmen from the continent. As but few porteTs were on hand,. owing to the holiday, all of them had to carry their own baggage and some amusement was afforded by their methods of trundling heavy trunks from the cars to waiting cabs, It was announced that the exten sion of the holiday applies only to the banks which will give the gov ernment time to complete arrange ments to meet the financial situa tion. Other business will continue as usual. ; .. , ' Belgium Appeal to England King Albert of Belgium sent a message today appealing for diplo matic intervention on the part of Great Britain. The Belgian king's telegram to King George was as fol lows! "Remembering the numerous proofs of your majesty's friendship and that of your predecessor, and of the friendly attitude of England in 1870 and the proof of friendship which she has just given us, again, I make a supreme appeal to the diplomatic intervention of your majesty's gov ernment to safeguard the integrity of Belgium."

The French crossed the frontier at several places despite the fact that the French government in formed us a few days ago that it would not infringe on unoccupied territory six miles from the frontier.
