"Pray accept. Monsieur, assurances
of my distinguished consideration.
"Burgomaster of Ghent."
The appeal of Major Seaman to
President Wilson to which Mr. Braun
refers In his cabled mossags reads as
"The Burgomaster of Ghent, where
the treaty of peace was signed a hun
dKd years ago, authorizes me to re
quest respectfully that, in case of in

protection of the American flag for
tilt safeguarding of its people and its

medical corps reserve, who has ex
pressed his views on the European war
in the press, has been before the War
Department for two weeks.
Major to Me Dropped.
Following President Wilson's order
that Army and Navy officers should
refrain from discussing the war. Sec
retary Garrison sent a letter to Major
Seaman asking him if newspaper state
ments appearing over his signature
were accurate. It is generally under
stood that If Major Seaman admits
their accuracy he will be dropped from
the reserve corps.
Officials would not discuss the mes
sage from the burgomaster of Ghent,
made public in New York, but one
statement In it that the American
Minister at Brussels was prevented by
the German government from commun
icating with Washington- was denied.
Minister Whltlock at Brussels recently
advised the department that the Ger
man government had given him and
the Spanish minister the use of a spe
cial military wire from Brussels to Ber
lin. Messages have been coming to the
State Department over this wire.

EXHAUSTED BRITON'S STUBBOBN"
Commander Describes Narrow Es
cape From Annihilation.
LONDON, Sept. 10. The London Ga
zette, issued late last night, contains
a dispatch from Field Marshal Sir John
French, commander of the British
forces In France, reporting the pro
ceedings of his force. A summary of
the report follows:
The British took position on August
12. the report says, on a line from
Conde on the west, through Mons and
Bincbe on the east. General French
understood that at the most two army
corps were In front of the British po
sition. At 5 o'clock on the evening of August
B3 he received a most unexpected mes
sage from Generai Joffre, the French
commander-in-chief, that three Ger
man army corps were moving
"frontily" on the British and that an
other corps was engaged in a turning
movement from Tournai. General
Joffre also stated that the French
army on the British right was retiring.
As a result of this information he
determined to retire to a position which
he had previously reconnoitered. ex
tending from Maubeuge, west to Jen
lain, southeast of Valenciennes.
Enemy Tries to Surround.
There was a certain amount of fight
ing along the whole line of the right.
The retirement was carried out suc
cessfully throughout the 24th amid
"As the French troops were still re
tiring," General French continues. "I
had no support except from the fort
ress at Maubeuge, and determined at
tempts of the enemy to get around my
left flank assured me it was his in
tention to press me against that place
and surround me. I felt not a moment
must be lost in retiring to another po
sition. "This operation was full of danger
and difficulty not only owing to the
very superior force in my front, but
also the exhaustion of my troops. The
retirement recommenced early in the
morning of the 25th to a position near
"Although the troops had been or
dered to occupy Cambrai, Le Chateau
and Landrecies and that position and
ground had, during the 25th, been par
tially prepared and entrenched, I had
grave doubts owing to information I
received regarding the accumulating
strength of the enemy as to the wisdom
of standing there to fight.
"Moreover, the retirement of the
French troops on my right continued
and I determined to make a great ef
fort to continue the retreat till I could
put a substantial obstacle, such as the
Somme River or the Oise Biver, be
tween the British and the enemy to af
ford the former some opportunity for
rest and reorganization.
Cavalry Horses Exhausted.
"Therefore the corps commanders
were ordered to retreat as soon as pos
sible to a general line from St. Quentin
General French then describes the
march through all that day and until
late In the evening, during which time
he was incessantly harassed by the
enemy, who continued the attack late
at night on the exhausted British. Gen
eral French continues:
"General Sordet, commanding three
cavalry divisions, whom I had called to
my assistance, though he rendered val
uable aid later, was unable to afford
any support on the most critical day,
the 26th, owing to the exhaustion of his
"At daybreak the 26th, it became ap
parent that the enemy was throwing
the bulk of his strength against the
left of our position and the guns of four
German army corps being in position
against it. General Smith Dorrien re
ported that he was unable to retire as
ordered. In the face of such an attack
It was impossible for me to support
General Dorrien, as the first corps at
the moment was Incapable of moving.
There had been no time to intrench
properly, but the troops showed a mag
nificent front to the terrible fire.
"Finally it became apparent that if
complete annihilation was to be avoided
a retirement must be attempted, and
an order was given to commence it at
3:30 o'clock in the afternoon. The
movement was covered with the most
devoted intrepidity and determination
by the artillery which had suffered
heavily, and the fine work of the cav
alry assisted materially In the comple
tion of, the most difficult and danger
ous operation. Fortunately, the enemy
had suffered too heavily to engage in
General Dorrien Praised.
"I cannot close this brief account of
this glorious stand of the British with
out according deep appreciation to the
valuable services of General Smith Dor
rien. The saving of tho left wing of
the whole army would have been Im
possible unless a commander of rare
and unusual coolness and determination
had be.en present personally to conduct
"The retreat was continued far into
the night of the 26th and throughout
the two following days, when the troops
halted on the line of Noyon, Chauny
and La Fere, having thrown off the
weight of the enemy's pursuit During
these two days I was Indebted to Gen
eral Sordet's cavalry division for as
sistance in repelling the enemy. Gen
eral D'Amade, also from the neighbor
hood of Arras, relieved the pressure on
the British rear from the enemy's right
In concluding. General French pays a
tribute to the invaluable service of the
army's flying corps.
TUITION RISE PUZZLES
EFFECT OF DOUBLING OF FEE IS
Portland Commercial Club Committee
Hears Many Complaints From
Will the complaint regarding the
doubling of tuition fees for out-of-town
hign school students result in
the establisnment of the former rate
by the Portland Board of Education;
in the expansion of the city high school
district to include Multnomah County;
in the building of more union high
schools as advocated by County Super
intendent Armstrong, or in the contin
uance of the present rates and con
ditions? Many interested persons have tele
phoned to or interviewed the members
of the committee just appointed by the
Portland Commercial Club to investi
gate the rise in tuition and there ap
pears to be much sentiment to the
effect that the rate of 80 a year Is
too high. The Board of Education,
however, maintains that there were
good reasons for the advance.
J. Fred Larson, of the" Commercial
Club committee, said last night that
no appointment had yet been made
with the Board of Education with re
gard to the advanced tuition, as the
committee preferred to go into the
subject thoroughly before taking it
up with the school directors. He said
a Portland business man who lives
outside the city limits eOmplained yes
terday that It would cost him 1240 to
send his three children to high school
this year, In spite of the fact that he
owns property and pays taxes in Port
land. He thought it would be as cheap
to furnish an apartment in town for
the children during the school year.
On the other hand, the Board of Ed
ucation did not make the increase for
arbitrary reasons. The schools are
crowded now. there have been com
plaints of high tax assessment for
school purposes and the trustees be
lieve that those paying taxes inside
the city are entitled to first consider
ation. "We have been severely criticised
for the cost of running the Portland
school department," said Chairman
Manly, of the Board of Education, last
night "and the cost of tuition of out-of-town
students has been a consider
able item. We desire to keep expenses
as low as possible and this is but one
way in which we are retrenching."
It is asserted that $80 a year, in
stead of $40, would Just pay the cost
of teaching one student In the high
school one year.
Taking Multnomah County Into the
citv high school district has been sug
gested as a rented', but may prove
impractical. Union high schools
throughout the county may solve the

CAUSE OF NEEDY ILL
Civic Organizations to Aid Vis
iting Nurse Association's
MEETING CALLED TODAY
Meuntj of Making Big Success of
V. X. A. Day Xext Monday to Be
Discussed at Commercial
CIuI Members Sought.
To adopt a slogan for Visiting Nurse
Association day, next Monday, and to
perfect plans for the one-day campaign
for membership, a meeting of the gen
eral committee of the Visiting Nurse
Association, including representatives
of Portland's civic organizations, will
be held at the Commercial Club at 11:30
o'clock today. This will be the final
meeting at which arrangements for
Monday's canvass will be discussed.
Ministers of Portland will be re
quested to make particular mention or
the worthy purpose of Visiting Nurse
Association day from their pulpits next
Sunday. The association was organized
to care for the needy sick of this city,
no charges being made for the atten
tion. Funds are needed to continue the
work and it rs hoped to raise this nec
essary money Monday by obtaining
members for the association for $10, $5
or ?3 each.
Pitiful Cases Cited.
Information concerning the Visiting
Nurse Association may be received by
application at the headquarters of the
organization at 601 Medical building.
The charitable nature of the work of
the Visiting Nurse Association is shown
in the following statement, issued by
"Timely aid means much to the af
flicted. Recently a little Bohemian boy
suffered an accident through which his
leg. became infected from the foot to
the groin. His parents spoke little
English, not enough to make them
selves understood. They were strang
ers, had no money to obtain the serv
ices of a physician, and did not know
where or to whom to apply for aid.
The boy was getting worse, his tem
perature was high, the infection
spreading and the family were in des
pair. "Finally someone who knew of the
splendid work of the Visiting Nurse
Association called their attention to
this case. A nurse promptly responded
and found the lad almost past hope,
due to the lack of care and ignorance
of the parents. The nurse asked the
assistance of a physician in the neigh
borhood and they have taken care of
the little fellow, who now is slowly re
covering, although he is not entirely
out of the woods yet.
"Another instance of the work of the
Visiting Nurse Association among fore
igners Is that of a little Polish girl, 6
years old, who came down with in
fantile paralysis last February, , and
was attended by one of their nurses.
For weeks and weeks they did not
know whether she would live or not,
but at last she Improved and was able
to walk after a fashion. Since her
partial recovery : he association has
arranged for further treatments with a
specialist and hopes are entertained for
her ultimate complete recovery, al
though this will be a matter of some
length of time.
"The association knows no creed and
attends the afflicted of all religions,
making 'humanity' its watchword. It
endeavors to teach these newcomers
how to take care of themselves in
