LONDON. Aug. a-(5:2i p. m.)-The

mously passed a war credit of IS00.0W.fti0

Is the second war credit passed by the,
house, the sum of $.t..(K.10.0fW having been
voted two days ago.
Premier Asnulth told the house thnt the
"White Taper Issued by the government
showed how strenuous and unremitting
had been the efforts of Plr Kdward Grey,
the British foreign secretary, to secure
for Kurope an honorable and lasting
"Iifssinaa ProwoI."
After read'ng Sir Edward Ooschen'a
dispatch saying that Germany hnd mado
"a strong bid for British neutrality," the
premier remarked that Germany"! sug
gestion amounted to ' the Infamous pro
posal that we should give her a free hand
to annex the whole of the extra-European
possessions f France." He contin
ued: "If Great Britain had accepted what
reply could she have mado to the Bel
gians' appeal . It could only have repl ed
that we had bartered away to the power
threatening her. our obligations to keep
our plighted word. What would have been
Great Britain's position If It assented to
this Infamous proposal and what was It
to get In return? Noting but a promise
given by a power which at that moment
was announcing Its Intention of violating
Its own treaty."

tha Oerman staff long ago decided that
tha invaalon of France through Its
strongly fortified eastern frontier was too
difficult to be relied upon.
It Is "plain that Germany thought It
preferable to violate Belgian neutrality
and drive England into the field against
her than to rely on getting Into Franca
through the latter'a curtain of powerful
fortifications. There is little doubt that
the Germans will succeed in forcing their
way through Belgium,

"The Walltons and Flemings have sunk

German Crolsera Are Safe
From Rome came a report that the
German cruisers Goeben and Brealau had
escaped the pursuit of French and British
warships after bombarding the Algerian
coast and had safely reached a Sicilian
port. .
German war vessels are said to have
penetrated the Gulf of Finland and bom
barded Sveaborg, the "northern Gibral

ultimatum from Germany to Italy camo

It was estimated by the embassy that
there were . 100,000 Germans In Great
Britain, but there were no means of as
certaining how many of these had left

. Asaexteana Ask for Food.
Many Americana today asked for help
to obtain food and lodging. There were
many Instances of persons with gold
certificates In their pockets walking the
streets all night hungry. Some of these
were relieved by small unsecured loans
from H. C. Hoover of California, who
spent moat of the day working to obtain
a reasonable rate of exchange for Amer
ican bills. The rate Is now exorbitant.
Among the callers at the American con
sulate general was Mrs, James T. Macey
of Denver, who was ordered out of hoi
sick bed In a hospital at Antwerp Mon
day with only . two hours' notice. She
was told the hospital was needed for the
wounded. Mrs. Macey left her mother
and child In Germany.

Isles to register their names, so that they
might return to Germany to fight If pos

able and the police on duty were aole
easily to keep them In line.
The clerks within the consulate general
meanwhile registered their names and
address and stamped their military books
to protect them against being classed as
deserters in case they were unable to re
turn to Germany.
