picion in official circles is that Dumba gave it out himself. If this is

nating in favor of Allies. Vienna has given assurance that Dumba will

ment omcials, shows guilt of the ambassador and his intentions to back
Schwab works strike.

Important link on the Petrograd railway from Warsaw falls before
