LONDON. Sept. 17 Englishwomen

to the men of England has been made
by Lady Maxwell, wife of Lieutenant
cieneral Sir John Grenfell Maxwell, for

regiment of Highlanders.
"Every man in Germany, every man
in France, all save the old and the

country's call and gone forth to prove
their manhood or to die," she declares.

IRWIN TELLS OF LOUVAIN
BOY SCOUTS PRECIPITATED AT
TACK, SAYS WRITER.
Destruction of Historic City and Bat
tle of Mobs Seen by Ex-Reporter
of San Francisco.-
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept- 17. (Spe
cial.) Will Irwin, the writer, once a
Stanford student and a reporter on the
San Francisco Chronicle, has reached
London after witnessing the battle of
Mons and the destruction of Louvain,
according to a letter received here by
the Mining and Scientific Press from T.
A. Rickard, a mining engineer who Is
now in London.
This is what Rickard says of Irwin's
account of the sacking of Louvain:
"According to him, some Boy Scouts
did attack the Germans, killing three
officers, and this is why the old city
was sacked. It appears that whenever
a shot was fired from any house, the
Germans killed everybody in it, men,
women and children, as he came to
know by going later to the house
where he had lodged. This exasperated
the Belgians so as to drive the boys to
retaliate. It makes the story more hor
rible, but it does not excuse the en
NOTABLE OFFICERS KILLED

In the list of dead also appear the
names of Colonel Sir Evelyn Ridley
Bradford, of the Seaforth Highlanders,
who was a well-known Londoner, and
Lieutenant-Colonel Louis St. Gratien
Le Marchant, of the East regiment.
HIGH FLYER HIT 10 TIMES
British Naval Officer Tells of Kaiser
Wilhelm der Grosse's Sinking.
LONDON, Sept. 17. An officer of the
British cruiser High Flyer has given
the following account of the sinking
of the North German Lloyd trans
Atlantic liner Kaiser Wilhelm der
Grosse off the coast of Africa, the
latter part of August:
"While we were coaling at Las
Pal mas. Canary Islands, we heard that
two colliers had left for Rio de Oro,
West Africa. We followed and sighted
the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse within
20 miles of Rio de Oro, with colliers
alongside. We opened flre at 3:10
o'clock and finished at 4:25. The Kaiser
Wilhelm sank at 6:10. Our ship was
struck ten times by shells."
BRITAIN BACKS INQUIRY
United States, However, Now Con
sidered Out of Dum-Dnra Probe.
LONDON, Sept. 17. In the House of
Commons Francis Dyke Ackland, Par
liamentary Undersecretary for Foreign
Affairs, said the British government
had no objection to an inquiry as to
the alleged use of dum-dum bullets
and to reported atrocities.
The government would participate in
such an inquiry, he said, but as to the
suggestion that it should ask the
United States to set up a committee
of Inquiry, he considered that, In view
of the reply reported to have been
given by President Wilson to Germany,
there was no use making proposals to
the United States on the subject.

VENICE, Sept. 17, via Rome. An
army order just issued in Vienna, ac
cording to information received here,
forbids Austrian troops to flre on aero
planes for the reason that it is im
possible to distinguish between their
own and the enemy's aviators.
An unexpected difficulty has arisen
in connection with the feeding of the
soldiers in the field. The smoke from
the field kitchens betrays the locations
