Latest War News
July 13th 1915.
The British, according to
French reports, repulsed a Ger-
man attack- yesterday. The Ger-
man reports however allude to
this as a British attack and Ber-
lin today says that it was repul-
sed with great loss.
In fact the German and
French reports are generally
contradictory in respect to
what fighting has taken plate
but from their trend it is evi-
dent that neither side has at-
tempted anything of a deci-
sive nature and it is believed
here that it may be weeks yet
before they do so.
So far as the Germans are
concerned military observe!
assert they are bound to car-
ry Out their offensive against
the Russians until there is a
decisive engagement such as
the capture of the Lublin*
Cholm Railway which it is
asserted would have been in
their hands before now if the
Austrians advancing toward
the city had not been driven
back.
Reports from neutral sourc-
i s state that to make good
their efforts against the Rus-
sians the Germans are mov-
ing troops intended for the
West to the East.
To a certain extent this
seems confirmed by the Aus-
trian statement that rein-
forcements have reai bed the

liness. The amount of destruction wrought by a tiger

German General Von Mac-
kensen a I o began an offen-
sive which also broke down
under the Russian fire.
While military critics are
still undecided whether the
Russians will make their
stand on their present lines or
fall back to the Hug River,
thus abandoning the fortress-
es of I van go rod and Warsaw
it is also believed that the
counter-attack which they
have developed has postpon-
ed for a time at least the
necessity for further retire-
ment.
There is no confirmation of
the report of Italian victory
on the Corso Plateau but
Rome despatches s iv the
Italians are making good
progress in their work of cap-
turing the mountains around
Trieste which they hope to
take before commencing an
advance on the city itself,
thus avoiding a bombard-
ment of the town.
Washington; The warn-
ings sent to the steamers
Howthhead and Napier by
the navy department were in
consequence of a letter receiv-
ed by n New Orleans newspa-
per which indicated that ex-
plosives had been placed on
the vessels. The ships were
loaded with mules for the
British govern in nt.
Washington:A study o'
the German reply to the
American note on submarine
warfare strengthens the con-
viction of high officials that a
critical point has been reach-
ed in the relations between
the two countries. It was
said here tonight that not
only do officials feel that the
United States must refuse to
accept Germany's proposals
for the future conduct of
American citizens on the high
seas but it was declared that
the failure of Germany to
disavow the sinking of the
Lustania and consequent loss
of American lives had
brought on a crisis.
Count Votl BernstolT the
German Ambassador intends
to call on Secretary Lansing
during the week to learn in-
formally whether he can be of
any service in the situation.
It was indicated authorita-
tively that obviously there
would be no surrender of Ameri-
can rights and no acceptance
of the German proposal to
guarantee safety to American
ships under arrangements to be
agreed upon by naval authori-
ties of the two countries.
Washington:Secretary
Lansing said today that he
probably would not go to
Cornish,New Hampshire, but
that President Wilson would
return at the end of the
week.
The situation is described in
official circles as bein more
serious than any previous
time between the United
States .and Germany.
Washington :With the
occupation of Mexico City by
General Gonzales at- the head
of Carranza forces officials
here hope for the estab-
lishment of a government in
that state and the transmis-
sion of food supplies to the
famine stricken population.
Washington:There has been
loss of many lives as the result
of unprecedented floods in the
[Provinces of Rwangtung
and Kwongsi, China, according
I to a despatch from Consu
j General Cheshire at Canton to
the state department here.
London:The Balkan gitua-
Itionis attracting much atten-
j tion in Lond< >n.
The Germans claim further
progress at Souchez.
Washington: President
Wilson wires that he will re
turn to Washington Friday or
Saturday and will lay before
the cabinet his plans for dealing
with submarine warfare.
There is nothing definite as
to the presidents intentions but
he will find a cabinet unanimous
in its opinion that the next note
from the United States to Ger-
many must be definite.

London, 13th:
Governor,
Bahamas.
Official news;Koenigs-
berg which has lain in re-
fuge in a river since October
has been attacked by two
British moniters and totally
wrecked.
The French government
reports the recovery of part
of trench near Souchez.
German attacks in Laby-
rinth completely repulsed.
I wo German attacks re-
pulsed Bois Le Pretre.
(Signed)
BONAR LAW.
London: -A despatch says
that Turkey and Bulgaria
have suspended negotiations.
London:--British monitors
destroyed the German cruiser
Koenigsberg in the Ruiji
River, Last Africa, where she
took refuge in October. The
British lost four killed and
six wounded. German losses
are not mentioned.
Two men have been sen-
tenced to death for attempt-
ing the assassination of the
King of Bulgaria. This is the
first news of attempted as-
sassination.
It is reported that Germany
and Austria have given Rou-
mania a mouth to accept
their offer of tei 1 itoris^fcom-
pensation for its assistance.
The subscription to the
British war loan totalled
three billion dollars. It is
the greatest war loan in
history.
Rome:The government
has organized a munitions
c ommittee.
Paris:35 aeroplanes bom-
barded the German strate-
gic d railroad position serving
Calonne Apremont trenches,
171 bombs were dropped
igniting munitions store.
A despatch says that the
Allies advanced 200 yards on
the Gallipoli Peninsula.
July 14th, 1915.
London, 13th:By a sav-
age attack in the West the
Germans have wrested from
the French the Souchez Cem-
etery, seven miles North of
Arras. The battle was one
of the severest of the war.
The Cemetery was taken
after a gas attack followed
bv hand-to-hand fighting
with bombs and bayonet.
The French admit the Ioss^
and are lighting to regain the'
ground which they had here-
tofore won at a heavy eo;t.
Slowly the French had been
tightening their grip on the
village of Souchez until the
Germans, aware that the
capture of the entire position
would be an important help
in the French offensive to-
wards I.ens and Lille, began
a terrific counter stmke which
left them master of the shat-
tered burial ground with
more than 150 prisoners in
their hands.
Fighting among the houses
which fiinge the Western
end of the town still rages.
There has been a renewal
of activity in other areas of
France and Belgium but no-
thing comparable with the
strategic: importance of the
Souchez struggle.
