London:The official list of the
new Ministry issued tonight follows
the uuofficial forecasts with two or
three mirier changes. Mr I.loyd
George, Lord Milner, Karl Curzen,
Andrew Hoiiar Law and Arilmr
Henderson fomied what is officially
termed The War Cabinet while the
others who ordinarily have been
designated as Cabinet ministers are
called heads of departments. An
important point in this naval or-
ganization is that it concentrates
far more power in the hands of the
Prime Minuter than the British
system has ever known before. Mr
Lloyd George's prop .sals to Prem-
ier Asquith were for a War Coun-
cil of which the Piemier should
not be a member although he
should have the power-of passing

I the position more closely resem-
[ bhng a Dictatorship than he was
I willing to^jiehiM predecessor.
Littie fronting except by the ar-
tillery is in progress on any of the
points except in Rcumania. Here
the Teulonii Allies according to
Beilin are still making progress
agnnst the Roumanians in eastern
Wallachia. Petrograd asserts how
ever that the Roumanians north
east of Bucharest along the road
running from Pleechti to Buzen
have turned on the offensive and Greece" has* ordeTed
driven the Austro Germans back
To the north along the Transy-
Ivanian Roumanian frontier Petro-
grad reports progress for the Rus-
sian troops and Berlin admits the
cnpture by the Russians of a height
south of theTrotus valley. A move
by the Bulgarians which may prove
a menace to the Roumanians, re-
treating eastward from 'lie Buch-
arest region is reported by Berlin.
I'll is is l tie crossing of the Danube
between Silistna and Tchernavoda
southeast and east of Bucharest. If
it was made in large force seeming
ly an impediment will be placed in
the way of the retirement of the
