tonight. He was loading his gatllng
guns with shot tor his coming attack
on the . "booze" citadels of Toronto,
Canada. If the present plans are car

10,000 persons, Including the pre
mier of the dominion and other, gov
ernment officials. To carry on the
fight Sunday has cleared, the, way,
hundreds of "key-men," from towns
in the province of Ontario will attend
the meetings, to receive their orders
for the battle. '
' The feelings of the people of Ontario
and of Canada will be tested and the
temperance workers claim that Ontario
is the heart of Canada, and If "Billy"
Sunday can swing it to prohibition, it will
mean the triumph of the temperance
cause throughout the domln'.on.
Sunday goes to Toronto through the
efforts of Newton Wylle, general chair
man of a Canadian committee of 100.
What Is believed to be Mr. Sunday's
greatest sermon against the liquor traf

the sti.ton by the premier and other
offlcialse and conveyed to Toronto uni
versity, where Sunday ' will deliver his
first sermon on foreign soil.
The evangelist returns here Tuesday
evening. That afternoon Rev, Isaac
Ward of Philadelphia, Penn., will speak
in Sunday's place at the local tabernacle.

LONDON. Nov. 20. Although no
official confirmation haa been re
ceived of the report that the Bul
garians have captured Monastlr, In
southwestern Serbia, little hope la
felt In' England that the announce
ment la premature. Accepting it as
true, the impression is growing that
the entente allies arrived too late to
give any service to the Serbians.
The only thing certain in regard to the
Plight of Berbla Is that Its military situa
tion is going from bad to worse. In the
north tho main Rerblan armies are giv
ing ..way slowly before the battering
Austro-Oerman .'forces, which probably
would move more rapidly if weather
conditions were better. . It Is established
that the Hulgarlans are In Prllep and at
least have made Monastlr untenable. The
Anglo-French armies, based on PaJonlkl,
seem to do ' no better than hold tholr
Optlmlstlo feeling In regard to the
diplomatic situation In Greece still per.
slsts In England. The reasons for this
optimism, however, continue to be ob
scure.' The weather seems to' have Intervened
again tn Russia.' Little activity Is re
ported except 'in the retirement of the
Russians to the east bank of the Ptyr. In

the swampy district evidently haa brought

On the other fronts there are ' few
