But E REFUGEES REACH , SAFETY IN LONDON About 800 Americans from Switzer land Reach British Metropolis associated press dispatch LONDON, Aug. 25. Some eight hundred American tourists from Switzerland arrived in London this afternoon, having ; come through France by special train. Many Americans are still at Bou logne waiting for boats to England. Great quantities of baggage lost by Americans on the continent in the last three weeks are now reaching England.

Hoover, chairman of the residents committee, ordered an investigation into a charge that the employes of the steamship lines were demanding fees for reserving berths for Americans.

There's one food that will not advance in price a food Europe is now calling for although the privilege, perforce, has been denied us, Belgium knows our sympathy is with her in her suf ferings and our indignation at the blows which have been inflicted upon er, also of our resolution to make sure that none of her sacrifices will ave been unavailing. "While other countries engaged in this war have under their systems of compulsory service brought their full resources Into the field, we are under the national system and our reserves have not been compelled to report for service. Therefore, we still ave a vast reserve to draw from the resources of both the mother country and the dominions. 'Response which has already been made by the Dominions abundantly proves we have not looked in vain to these sources for military strength, while India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand are sending powerful con tingents, and the territorials of this country are replying loyally to the stern call of duty, which came to them with such exceptional force." o .

'" ' The British official news bureau says: 'There lias been no further general engagement. The condition of the British troops is in every way satisfactory." ASSOCIATED press dispatch WASHINGTON, Aug. 25 An acute situation has arisen in the Balkan states aver the possible entry of Turkey into the European war according to official advices to the American government from various sources. Turkey has not yet given Great Britain, France and Russia satisfac tory explanation of the entry into the Dardanelles of the German cruisers Goeben and Breslau. When it was reported first that Turkey had pur chased these, vessels. Great Britain, France and Russia demanded that the crews of the two ships be re patriated immediately. Today's dis patches revealed that the German crews are still aboard the cruisers. Many Washington diplomats familiar with the situation consider it prac tically certain should Turkey side with Germany and Austria, that Italy would abandon her position of neutrality and join Great Britain, France, Russia and Servia, who would count also upon the assistance of Greece. Troops of the Ottoman em pire are quietly mobilizing without any public order to that effect. o ; . Hire a little salesman at The .Re publican office. A Want Ad will see more customers than you can.
