THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1915.
Telegraph News of the Week.
BERLIN, June 3. Officials and people arc waiting expectantly for
news of developments in German-American situation, which have arisen
out of Germany's reply to American note, repudiating any responsibility
for American losses in the sinking of the Lusitania. No trustworthy
news yet received from the United States as to reception of news by
United States. Censored news via British offices is not believed, and
for three days foreign office has been unable to communicate with the
Ambassador at Washington.
LONDON, June 3. Greatest pitched battle in all history is taking
place, in a great semi-circle with Przemysl as its center. Each side is
rushing great reinforcements to the contlict, with attacks and counter
attacks adding to losses of men and materials on both sides. The bat
tlefront is swaying over a large section of country. The dead and wound
ed in this titanic struggle number hundreds of thousands. Reports
differ as the originate in Berlin or Petrograd. It is certain neither side
has yet won any distinct advantage. Russian office makes no mention
of the reported capture of Stry by Austrians.
In Gallipoli peninsula yesterday, Turks rushed Allies but were re
pulsed by fire of machine guns. Loss of attackers heavy.
Heavy fighting north of Arras, center of battle being around sugar
factory at Souchcz.

board. The new license commission for Hawaii includes Easton, Sam
Wood, and Moir. ,
LONDON, June 2. Reports from Petrograd telling of Russian
victories are discounted by those from Merlin and Vienna. i,erlm
claims victories from Mackensen s men north and south-east. .Russian
offensive cast of San river repulsed on Monday. Reports from Berlin
are flatly contradicted by those from Petrograd.
WASHINGTON, June 2. Hostilities are virtually suspended in
the Mexican war zone pending receipt of American note.
ROME, June 2. Possibility that Roumania and Bulgaria will soon
enter war, overshadows most stirring news from front. One will go
against Austria and the other against Turks. Thousands of priests are
throwing off their vestments and joining the colors. On the plateau
of Forgaria fighting has settled down to a duel of heavy artillery. Along
the Cannthias only minor engagements arc taking place.
GLASGOW, June 2. Allan liner Corsican arrived safely from

less warning was sent to the Megantic.
TOKIO, June 2. A German baker was detected sending letters to
a prisoner in the detention camp, and has been ordered deported. Four
others have received notification to get out of the country.
WASHINGTON, June 2. It is made plain by expressions of cabi
net officers that the United States holds Germany responsible for the
destruction of the Lusitania, and will not recede from the position taken
by administration as shown in the first note. The second note will be
terse, and if the reply be unsatisfactory, the German ambassador will
be handed his passports. Representative German citizens in the United
States have telegraphed the President that : "There is great danger
that any violation by the administration of the neutrality you enjoined
on the nation will start war. We beseech you to uphold 25,000,000
loyal citizens of the United States who sympathize with Germany and
Austria, and who believe they are right.
HONOLULU, June 1.
-Harry Newcombe was found dazed in
WASHINGTON, June 1. Cabinet held a long conference with
President Wilson today. The subject was the note of warning to Mexi
ico. couched in most explicit lansruaire, which was completed. Carranza
reports food situation pitiable.
TOKIO, June 1. Budget committee of house approves proposed
increase of army. ,
ATHENS, Tune 1. Reported Turkish cruiser and Fort Sultan
Salim are being dismantled because of progress made by Allies in clear
ing way through Dardanelles. Gloom reigns in Constantinople. Many
favor opening of the straits and negotiating with the Allies for peace,
Turkish reinforcements to the Dardanelles are interrupted by operations
of British submarine which has made its way through straits and the
sea of Marmora and is operating before Constantinople.
LONDON, June 1. A prisoner captured before Dardanelles a
fortnight ago says Turkish losses in the defense of Gallipoli were 40,000.
In a night attack on London by Zeppelins, 90 bombs dropped, killing
four persons and wounding three.
UNDINE, June 1. Across border the Italians are driving forward
into the Trieste country. They have occupied 37 villages and are sur
pomihle for every American ship lost and every American life sacri-
ced. Determination of administration in the present crisis is double.
Government will meet Germany's technical avoidance of broad issues
y prompt and positive notification that it has already been officially de
termined to the full of absolute satisfaction that Lusitania was unarmed.
She carried ammunition, it is admitted, and it was on manifest. It has
always been contraband of war and subject to confiscation. As for un
warranted claim that Canadian troops were on board ,it is so wide of
facts that government can receive only with astonishment Germany s as
sumption that American authorities could be hoodwinked into permit
ting such gross cheat fin neutrality to slip past under search, or more
incredible to connive at it.
LONDON, June 11. Great Austrian-German drive in Galicia,
with Przemysl as object, has been checked and the failure of German
plans in Galician campaign is comparable with failure to pierce Allies'
line to capture Calais and thrice repeated effort to crush Russian de
fense of arsaw.
LONDON, May 31. Mighty battle being raged around Przemysl.
Teutonic Allies making supreme efforts to isolate Russian garrison and
free armies in Galicia for campaign against Italy m south and reinforce
ment of western line against increasing armies of British and French.
North of fortress, Russians have brought up reinforcements and are
holding their own against furious offensive of German-Austrian troops
but meet difficulty keeping men supplied with ammunition.
Brisk fighting renewed along i ser. French assert they have storm
ed several hundred metres of German trenches and advanced quarter
of a mile.
Four ships sunk yesterday and the White Star liner Megantic had
narrow escape, being chased through St. George's channel, finally dodg
ing the submarine and reaching Liverpool safely. Off the coast of
Wales, British merchantman Tullochmoor attacked by submarine and
allowed ten minutes for crew to leave vessel. British steamer Glenlee,
Portuguese steamer Cysne, and Russian steamer Mars, were sunk yes
terday by submarines.
WASHINGTON, May 31. Profound dissatisfaction is sentiment
with which administration received German reply to Lusitania's note
yesterday. Note fails to take up seriously any of the demands made
made by American note and there is disappointment at temporizing,
dialetical and argumentative tone of document. Within 48 hours it is
expected President will send rcly to Germany in view of Germany's
silence on all major issues on general policy of international law and
the rights of humanity raised by America. It is not felt that offers of
reparation for so-called unintentional attacks on American shis will
carry much weight. Note recommends attentive examination of facts
before entering upon any discussion of issues they may raise when de
termined. No part of German program to submit neutral ships which
have entered war zone around British Isles to any attack by submarines
or aircraft, provided they have not been guilty of hostile acts. In spite
of this declaration, facts surrounding torpedoing of Gulfhght and drop
ing bombs on Lushing will be thoroughly investigated. Germany en
tertains a keen wish to cooperate with United States in frank and
friendly way in clearing up any misunderstanding that may have arisen
from events stated.
WASHINGTON, May 30. Distinct feeling of pessimism prevails
about capital over failure of German government to respond directly to
points raised in American note protest that followed promptly the sink
ing of the Lusitania. Gerard s summary of note handed by Berlin
shows Germany has evaded main issue raised by President which was
that Germany give assurances that attacks on unwp.rned passenger ships
cease and hereafter American ilag be respected. A recognized grave
factor is added to situation by findings of commission investigating
Nebraskan affair. It is believed no warning was given her. President
says he will make no statement and all officials arc reticent about ex
