Registrars of alien-enemy women
in the city council chamber believe
many who should register have neg
lected this necessary and important
requirement Julius Mansfield and
Frank Rose, of the police depart
ment,, are doing this .wot : under in
structions of the United States De
partment of Justice.
' Six hundred have registered. The
bureau was open until 7 p. m. last
night after a registration period of
10 days. .
Registrants may call at the city
council chamber from July 12 to 14
for their cards. .
An American-born woman cried
Wednesday morning when she nad
to register because her German hus
band .Was not naturalized.
Wives of Alien Enemies.
Among the women who have reg
istered are natives of England, Ire
land, France, Bohemia, Poland, Den
mark, Sweden and other countries,
these being the wives of alien-enemy
An unusual case was a Germans
born woman who had a Russian
husband. She stated that one of
her' sons was born in Canada and
another in Portland. Ore.
All single women. 14 years or more
of age, and of German nativity,

How My Son Was Killed.
It was about 8 o'clock one morn
ing that Captain Lauder was killed,
between Courcellete and Poizieres, on
the Ancre. in the region that is
known as the Somme battlefield. It
was soon after breakfast, and John
was going about, seeing to his men.
His company was to be relieved that
day, and to go back from the trenches
to rest billets, behind the lines. We
had sent our laddie a braw lot of
Christmas packages not long before,
but he had had them kept at the rest
billet, so that he might have the pleas
ure of opening them when he was
out of the trenches, and had a little
leisure, even though it made his
Christmas presents a wee bit late.
There had been a little mist upon
the ground, as at that damp and chil
ly season of the year, there nearly al
ways was along the river Ancre. At
that time, on that morning, it was
just beginning to rise as the sun grew
strong enough to banish it. I think
John trusted too much to the mist,
perhaps. He stepped for just a mo
ment into the open; for just a mo
ment he exposed himself, as he had
to do, no doubt, to do his duty. And
a German sniper, watching for just
such chances, caught a glimpse of
him. His rifle spoke; its bullet pierc
ed John's brave and gentle heart.
Tate, John's body-servant, a man
from our own town, was the first to
reach him. Tate was never far from
John's side, and he was heart-broken
when he reached him that morning
and found that there was nothing he
could do for him.
Many of the soldiers who served
with John and under him have written
to me, and come to me. And all of
them have told me the same thing:
that there was not a man in his com
pany who did not feel his death as a
personal loss and bereavement. And
his superior officers have told me the
same thing. Insofar as such reports
could comfort us his mother and I
have taken solace in them. All that
we have heard of John's life in the
trenches, and of his death, was such
a report as we or any parents should
want to have of their boy.
John never lost his rare good na
ture. There were times when things
were going very badly indeed, but
at such times he could always be
counted upon to raise a laugh and
uplift the spirits of his men. He knew
them all; he knew them well. Nearly
all of them came from his home region
near the Clyde, and so they were his
neighbors and his friends.
I have told you earlier that John
was a good musician. He played the
piano rarely well, for an amateur, and
he had a grand singing voice. And
one of his fellow-officers told me that,
after the fight at Beaumont-Hamul,
one of the phases of the great battle
of the Somme, John's company found
itself, toward evening, near the ruins
of an old chateau. After that fight,
by the way, dire news, sad news, came
to our village of the men of the
Argyle and Sutherland regiment and
there were many stricken homes that
mourned brave lads who would never
come home again.
John's men were near to exhaustion
that night. They had done terrible
work that day, and their losses had
been heavy. Now that there was an
interlude they lay about, tired and
bruised and battered. Many had been
killed; many had been so badly
wounded that they lay somewhere
behind, or had been picked up al
ready by the Red Cross men who fol
lowed them across the field of the
attack. But there were many more
who had been slightly hurt, and
whose wounds began to pain them
grievously now. The spirit of the
men was dashed.
John's friend and fellow-officer told
me of the scene.
"There we were, sir," he said. "We
were pretty well done in, I can tell
you. And then Lauder came along.
I suppose he was just as tired and
worn out as the rest of us God
knows he had as much reason to be,
and more! But he was as cocky as
a little bantam. And he was smiling.
He looked about.
"'Here this won't do!' he said.
'We've got to get these lads feeling
better' He was talking more to him
self than to anyone else, I think. And
he went exploring around. He got
into what was left of that chateau
and I can tell you it wasn't much!
The Germans had been using it as a
point d'appui a sort of rallying
playce, sir and our guns had smash
ed it up pretty thoroughly. I've no
doubt the Fritzies had taken a hack
at it, too, when they found they
couldn't hold it any longer they
"But, by a sort of miracle, there
was a piano inside that had come
through all the trouble. The building
and all the rest of the furniture had
been knocked to bits, but the piano
was all right, althought, as I say. I
don't know how that had happened.
Lauder spied it, and went clambering
over all the debris and Avreckage to
reach it. He tried the keys, and
found that the action was all right.
So he began picking out a tune, and
the rest of us began to sit up a bit.
And pretty soon he lifted his voice
in a rollicking tune one of your
songs it was, sir and in no time the
men were all sitting up to listen to
him. Then they joined in the chorus
and prettv soon you'd never have
known they'd been tired or worn outl
If therc'd been a chance they'd have
gone at Fritz and done the day's
work all over again!"
After John was killed his brother
officers sent us all his personal be
longings. We have his field-glasses,
with the mud of the trenches dried
upon them. We have a little gold
locket that he always wore around
his neck. His mother's picture is in
it, and that of the lassie he was to
have married had he come home,
after New Year's. And we have his
rings, and his boots, and his watch,
and all the other small possessions
that were a part of his daily life out
there in France.
Many soldiers and officers of the
Argyle and Sutherlanders pass the
hoose at Dunoon on the Clyle. None
ever passes the hoose, though, with
out dropping in, for a bite and sup
if he has time to stop, and to tell us
stories of our beloved boy.
No. I would no have you think
that I would exalt my boy above all
the others who have lived and died
in France in the way of duty. But
he was such a good boy! We have
heard so many tales like those I have
told you, to make us proud of him,
and glad that he bore his part as a
He will stay there, in that small
grave on that tiny hill. I shall not
bring his body back to rest in Scot
land, even if the time comes when I
might do so. lt is a soldier's grave,
and an honorable place for him to be,
and I feel it is there that he would
wish to lie, with his men lying close
about him, until the time comes for
the great reunion.
But I am going back to France to
visit again and again that grave
where he lies buried. So long as I
live myself that hill will be the shrine
to which my many pilgrimages will
be directed. The time will come
again when I may take his mother
with me, and when we may kneel to
gether at that spot.
And meanwhile the wild flowers
and the long grasses and all the little
shrubs will keep watch and ward
over him there, and over all the other
brave soldiers who lie hard by, who
died for God and for their flag.

by the police for not working.
