i NEGOTIATIONS BROKEN
Despatches from ...Tokio; re-
-., cdved last night announced 'that
negotiations ;, with , the.. United
States for the lifting of the steel
J embargo had been brofcen.' Unit
" ed : States.' government : ofhciaU
still expressed confidence that ne
. gotiations' with Japan will in the
( end be successful and said that if
' ther have been broken off efforts
to reopen them- will be ' made.
The breach, it was. said, was oc
casioned by the refusal of japan
to furnish all sthe shipping ton
. nage desired at thj. price which
the United . States has offered.. '
DIFFERENCE. IS WIPE .'
Demands: of Japan are for the
releasing from embargo of 300,
000 tons of steel for ship construc
tion and the counter Offer of the
' United StaieTwai lo 'release
000 ton and to purchase from
Japan whatever shipping could
be had at a price of $175 a ton. .
"Tokio despatches gave as a
reason for the break in negotia
tions that the United.'States re
fused to consider the lifting of its
embargo on steef unless . Japan
would .yield to its demands for a
sale of shipping. The tonnage
. demanded was such that it could
"'. readily destroy Japan's commerce
with Europe without giving an
adequate Compensation in return.
Prior, to the i reported agree
ment' with Japan, announced in
connection with' an agreement
with the neutral nations of North
ern Europe and which v said the
shipping problem of the United
States on the Atlantic was there
by largely .solved, it was known
that the United States and Japan
had been wide apart as to the
tonnage of ships that should be
furnished the United States,
', Washington , officials insisting
that Japan's demands for steei
were, disproportionate to what
that nation was willing to yield
io shipping. .
It would now appear that the
two nations have not yet come
together on this point, that ship
building. In Japan may have tc
stop, as Tokio despatches have
said that it must . without 'steel
from America and, the United
States must further speed up its j
own ship building 'program.

Teutons Bring Up Fresn Divis
ions In Effort To Sever
LATINS SHOW TEMCITl
NEW YORK, November 19 (Associated Press) On the Italian
..front there Is raging one of the most bitterly fought battles
of the war one so important that on its result may hinrje the sub
sequent campaign in Northern Italy. Yesterday's results were in
decisive but it will be continued Until the Huns are convinced of the
futility of further sacrifices or the Italian army is cut in twain and
driven back, to take upon another line of defense.. ,
v. t was on the Northern , line of the Italian front and on the
plains of Asiago that the most severe fighting occurred yesterday.
The whole pressure of the Teuton forces is being brought to bear .
where the Piave and Trentind fronts join and If this be broken it
wodd mean the separating 'of , the Italian forces into two distinct
armies, each with one flank .threatened. -
; : FRESH DIVISIONS MAKE ATTACK
. Bringing up fresh army divisions the Austro-Germans yester
day made a supreme effort to break the Latin line. Attack followed
attack, division came up after division and was hurled against the
salients that had been selected. They held to their positions with;
i desperate tenacity. They hurled and showered hand grenades
nto the serried ranks of the enemy that poured up against them.
They met charqes with the bayonet and the saber and they still held
nit at nightfall. ' : . 1 . . . '. v ,

and woundsd lay- forming a barricade of rtuTnnftTroon -which the
opposing forces fought with r bayonets. . As yet the Italians hold
their own. " ':," '. .- j . ... :
CAMPAIGN HINGES. UPON RESULT : : :
It is the critical battle of the campaign, or may be so, in t!ie '
,'stimation of von Krobatin, the Austrian general who last evenina
aiu fiidi mis uidy uc um turning pcim in tne i euton operations
tgainst the Italians. " .. " - , . ,
If this drive shall succeed it win cut the line of the Italians and
hust mean-further retreats and greater disaster. On the other
land it seems impossible that the Teutons can stand many days of
urh losses as fell to them yesterday and retain their man power
and the morale of the troops. ' v - T ,
v SOLIDARITY OF LINE RETAINED 'S,
The Italian armies have maintained the solidarity of their lines,
Hpncral Cadorna said last night He added that the full power of
the enemy's attack had not yet been developed and that they still
iave to show where they will strike their, greatest and their heavi
est blows. He praised the morale and the splendid courage which
the Italians were showing and he vigor of the defense which they
lad made which was little -short of marvelous under the terrific
lammering administered by new and fresh troops against men al
eady wearied by the attacks of the past Week. ' 1 ' ' ' ,.,
V NAVY RENDERS ASSISTANCE ' v
Splendid assistance is being given to the land forces by the
talian navy, Rome reported, and within range of the big guns of the
hips the country was kept clear of Huns.. , : ,
Today's fighting may prove decisive. On the other'hand, if the
alians are still able to hold back the Teuton charges the battle
nay continue indecisive for days to come until one side or other is
10 weakened that withdrawal is inevitable. i :
