Rosendaal, Holland, Is Haven
of Rest for Unhappy Ant
werp People.
Panic at Frontier Follows False
ltumor That Germans Are Com
ing Many "War Babies"
IOtt, .Others Adopted.
AMSTERDAM, Oct. 11. (Dispatch to
the London Daily Chronicle.) When
the people of Antwerp had to fly at
midnight by the light of their burn
ins homes and to the death march
of booming guns, they naturally sought
the line of least resistance and for
the majority that line led due north
through Esschen to Rosendaal.
Though. Rosendaal is little more than
a village, it is an important railway
center, . commanding: all the main
routes and with a station nearly as
large as all the rest of the town in
which to handle the frontier traffic,
it became an ideal clothing house for
refugees. It is estimated that nearly
200,000 have passed through during
the last few days, thence to be dis
tributed all over Holland.
Frontier Days an Nightmare.
The townspeople and troops alike
threw themselves and all their re
sources into the work of helping the
helpless. It became unfashionable in
Rosendaal as seen during the painful
days and nights spent there to stand
Idle for a moment or to snatch an
hour s sleep, if there were, as there al
ways were, fresh streams of refugees
to care for, and to eat while refugees
stood unted was unthought of.
we must write Rosendaal high in
the list of places that have served
the world -by love and mercy. These
days and nights on the frontier seem
a hideous nightmare.
There come in little flashes of mem
ory, blurred by fatigue and want of
sleep, pictures of weary women tramp
ing along- the country roads with ba
bies and bundles ever pressing north
ward from the glare and guns and
terrifying cry, "The Germans are com
ing ; of mothers who sobbed in
churches and railway waiting-rooms,
soooea over ine loss of little ones
from whom they had been separated
in the rush and confusion, children
who cried for food; of unknown mites
only weeks or months old, who had
been found unclaimed In the railway
carnages, and had been carried to shel
ter by ever splendidly tender Dutch
But babies, who in the tidal wave of
war have been washed out of their
wrecked homes, are cast on no inhospi
table shore, for there is hardly a mother
in Holland who will not adopt a little
Belgian war baby -if efforts now being
maae to trace its parents fall.
ot Enough Bnblea to Go Around.
Just now a young, married Dutch
lady has been telling with tears in her
eyes of unclaimed babies in Amster
dam and other towns, and it was sug
gested half jokingly that she should
aiiopt one.
-I have offered to do so," she said,
"but there are iut enough to go around.
We would all take one" and that is
the spirit in which Holland is working
for the refugees today.
The Amsterdam Telegraaf is opening
its columns free to refugees who wish
to advertise for relatives from whom
they have been separated in flight. The
tirst notice appears on behalf of a baby
girl live weeks old. and asks in her
lKime, though she can give no name, it
anyone will claim her. There follows
a -description of her appearance and
Dutch Soldiers Help.
At the central station, where train
loads of refugees are arriving, over
crowded, understaffed but ever willing
Rosendaal motor lorries driven by sol
diers meet them and hurry them oft
with their pathetic little bundles to
shelter in the Bourse and in the diamond-cutting
factories which are stand
ing idle, to private homes thrown open
to homeless and to hotels that take
them in for most trivial sums if they
offer to pay and for nothing if they
have no money.
On one lorry a woman suddenly
threw up her arms, uttered a cry, and
waved her hand to a group on another
lorry. She was too overcome to speak,
but on the other lorry a man heard her
cry, looked across, and then burst into
tears. They were husband and wife,
and had seen nothing of one another
since they, left Antwerp.
-Separate- and overwhelming are the
tragedies that every one of these tens
of thousands represents. A young
mother is hunting through every shel
ter in Amsterdam after vain searches
in Rosendaal and Rotterdam for two of
her children. During the flight from
Antwerp her husband fell dead at her
side under spattering fragments of
German shells.
Refugees Pear Germans.
The feeling of terror is still on on the
frontier. In the early hours of yester
day a rumor ran around Esschen, on
the Belgian side of the boundary, a lit
tle to the south, of Rosendaal. that the
Germans were coming. A panic set in
among the thousands of refugees, and
there was a stampede, the alarm being
quelled only by a parish priest, who as
cended the church tower, scanned the
countryside, and assured the people no
troops were in sight-
Motors from Rosendaal are scouring
the countryside as far south toward
Antwerp as possible picking up the
sick and aged stragglers.
The Rosendaal correspondent of the
Telegraph wires: "I have Just driven
as near Antwerp as possible. This is
nut e.asy with roads blocked with
streams of refugees. South of Esschen
the numbers decreased. From Bergen
op-Zoom I learn there are about 25.000
refugees in that town. The situation
is desperate owing to lack of food, and
doctors fear that concentration of so
many people where insufficient accom
inodation is available may cause in
sanitary conditions and bring about an
outbreak of disease. There are still
thousands of refugees at Flushing. A
frpeclal train is taking as many as pos
sible to Xorth Holland. The Belgian
steamer Euphrates left with hundreds
of refugees this afternoon for Bruges."

Most of "World's Savings "Will Be Ab
sorbed and Progress "Will Re
ceive Serious Check.
PARIS, Oct. 17. Paul Leroy-Beau-lieu.
the French economist, estimates
that each of the greater belligerents is
spending an average equivalent to
1200,000,000 a month.
In presenting these figures to the
Academy of Moral and Political Sciences
today, he said that he considered it
probable that the war would continue
for seven months, from August 1. Ac
cordingly the five greater powers en
gaged were committed to an expendi
ture of 7,000.000.000. Each of the
smaller states, including Japan, will
have expenses from $600,000,000 to
$800,000,000 to meet.
M. Leroy-Beaulieu continued:
"One might say that the war will
cost the fighting powers, roughly, from
$9,000,000,000 to $10,000,000,000. These
figures, which do not take into account
the losses of revenue during hostili
ties, will be met, first, by the issuance
of notes against the accumulated gold
in the government banks; second, by
the issuance of short-term treasury
bonds, to which all governments are
having recourse during the war, and,
third, by delaying: payments for mili
tary necessities. The larger part of
the savings of the world will be ab
sorbed by the taking up of national
loans, and economic progress will be
seriously checked."

British Officers Among Dead.
LONDON, Oct. 17. A casualty list of

ing the desperate fighting in the vicin

served in the Egyptian and South Af
rican campaigns in 1900-02, was mili

at that time was commander-in-chief
