Austrian defeat has been such as,, t; completely

The week which ended'June 22 saw the Austrian
offensive along the Piave River in collapse and the
opening of last week saw the culmination of the

the worst disasters that any belligerent has suf
fered during the course of the war. Assisted by
the floods which caught the Austrian invaders and
separated them from the main Austrian forces and
their bases of supplies, thousands upon thousands
of Austrians surrendered and thousands upon
thousands more were killed. Premier Wekerle of

claim to have taken, and casualties of 100.000,

in the German offensive would open last week

British struck to anticipate any move against the
, Channel Ports, taking terrain from which an enemy
thrust might well have : been directed. France
f truck as protection against an enemy thrust at
"Paris. The French gained their every objective
and secured positions eminently suited for an
enemy ;rove against the rrencn capital. Since
then the official reports show little fighting other
than heavy artillery fire and minor local engage
ments. So far as the Americans are concerned. General
, March, chief of staff, reports that in all sectors the
fighting was almost entirely of a local character.
, In Italy there are reports of an increase in bar-
, race in the mountain sectors which fives rise to
' the surmise that the Austrians may yet try to re-
-. uccin xneir ueicat . uy a new onensive uirecxeu
against some 'of the mountain salients. .
:' . la general the situation appears to be more

favorable to the Allies than for
though there is still the expectation of serious
times on the Western front. Germany's reserves 1 cr,t's- PKing p.anis. puip ana paper nuns.
are by no means exhausted and the Germans have
reason to exert their greatest efforts now, for le
lay can gain them nothing.
Not the least encouraging phase of the situa
tion is the rapid arrival of American forces and
their speedy preparation for actual service. During
the month of June the British losses, on all fronts,
were more than 120,000. While the French losses
have not been announced it is probable they were
about as great. German losses may be assumed
to have been at least as large, probably much
larger, than the combined British and French.
But the Americans are going overseas fast ami
in two weeks of the thirty dav.s in this month there
deoarted from United States twirts 250.000 fitrhtiiu'
men, enough to make up for the
flu nntiuh anit T-"r-n f-1 Tl-mn
cf the Allied forces is not
strengthened during the month of May, probably
by about 200,000 men. Meantime Germany is
weakened by at least a quarter of a million, a gain
for the Allies uf, say, 400i000 men.
German high officials recognize the changing
aspect. Strike as they will, they are no longer
able to prevent the growth of the Allies' man power
nd if they are to win they must do so speedily or
not at all. And not only do the war leaders recog
, nize this, the Socialists in the reichstag are aware
of conditions and ridicule the war party because
of the failure of their promise that submarines
would prevent the lauding of American troops in
important numbers and would prevent the ration
ing of such of them as had arrived.
What the effect of von Kuehlmann's admission
that the war must go over another year will be on
the masses of Germany remains to be determined.
While his admissions were at first thought to be
n serious fau-x pas and while the kaiser was re-!
ported to be "furious," there is a feeling in'Uritain j
that perhaps his words were a part of a deliberate i
plan, an effect to stir hopes of peace in the minds
of the pacifists and war wearied, in the United
Kingdom and in France.
Arrival of the first American units in Italy was
announced during" tha week. These w ere largely
medical or sanitary forces but couibat troops are
to follow. This exjeditjon does not give promise
of being very, large, at. tfy time, but it is important
for the mural 4-ffect which it will have. It is de
signed, much as anything, to inspire faith and
confideii' e in the Italians, as an outward inanifes
tation to the people of Italy that they are not
friendless and the United States is ready to assist
in other ways than supplying food and nioiuv .
There now exists every reason
early resumption of the German offensive, tier ,
many is gaining nothing, so far as is apparent. I
from delay, but is losing proportionately as Aim r
leans arrive and are trained. That the training i-
rapid is shown by the announcement of the arrival
in Pershing's command of five divisions who have
been trained with the British. Thus there are

WW Bear Watching
MORF. and more frequently of late appear
mentions of the Nonpartisan League and its
plans, r.cvoixl the fact that, its leaders are said
to be inclined toward pro-Germanism compara
tively little is know n of it outside of a dozen North
western state-; but so rapid has been its growth
and ro aggressive arc its jmliticat methods that it
will bear watching anil warrants a careful study
of its plans and purposes.
The Farmer' Nonpartisan League js a new
granger political party of distinctly socialistic pro
clivities that has sprung up in the Northwest.
North Dakota appears to be its birthplace and
there it has swept the older parties out of office
and grabbed almost everything i sight that per
tains to governmental affairs. From the Dakota
ranges it has spread across the Red River of the
North into Minnesota and has turned that state
into a twilling, seething political caldron.
In three years the Farmers' Nonpartisan league
has enrolled 200.000 members in the states of the
upper Mississippi valley. It has captured abso
lute control of .Vrirtli Dakota from the supreme
bench down through the statehouse to the agricul
tural college, with the exception of a few holdover
senators 'who are slated for the shelf next fall,
It is fullv organized for a fight next November
in five states Minnesota. Montana, Idaho, and
the two Dakotas In eight other states, Wiscon
sin, Iowa, Kansa. Nebraska, Colorado, Washing
ton, Texas, ami )klahoma, agents are skipping
about in "flivvers" enrolling the farmers for 1920.
Thus by the time the next presidential election
rolls around the league expects to be strongly in
trenched in thirteen states and to walk from the
.1 1-1 -IM
I polls w ith the 'World's bread basket" region liook-
ed over its left arm. So far it has done no organ
izing east of the Mississippi river, but Illinois, In
diana. Ohio and Michigan are on its line of march,
extended, and it it continues to spread with the
amazing rapidity it has shown in the northwest
the league plans eventually to invade the east and
the south and to expand itself throughout rural
America. This fall it expects to elect ten or a
dozen league candidates to congress. Its predic
tions for PJ20 might well fall under the blue sky
rr i - .
':.w no limit.
The avowed purpose of the Nonpartisan league
is to establish "an ecfuitaulsysteni of jrtarketing"
for the farmer. Hack ot it is a communistic pro
gram for state ownership of mills, elevators, cream-
, i -I, .

Lind hanks and
other taxation changes, and cooperative stores.
In essence it is

A fund of some $1,250,000 a year represents the
sinews of war. Each of the 200.000 fa rmer mem
bers has gone into his jeans for Slh. either in cold
cash, in notes, or in time checks. The Sid pays
up his dues for two years--Sid an election is the
basis and the spending of the money is absolute

manager of the league, and his associates. The

The lovalt issue has been raised and the league
is under attack from many quarters. It is difficult
with the primary fight at Mazing heat to gather
how f;ir the anti-loyalty attacks upon the league
are involved with politics. Here and there or
ganizers and officials of the league have been ar
rested and indicted and in some cases couvicted on
charges of disloyalty and of spreading doctrines
hostile to the military and naval policy of the
United States. Townley himself, and Joseph Gil
bert, a state organizer, are under indictment in
Martin and Jackson counties. The cases will not
be finally disposed of until after the primaries.
The league officials declare that the league
throughout has upheld the W ilson war policies.
The opposition charges that siu h upholdings have
always had "weasel words" attached.

of the. board of supervisors' pruning

waa ready yeaterday afternoon to cut
out and 'appropriation of 1 600' for the
next aik months which" has been de
voted to promotion work in the past,
on the grounds that economy and the
lack of shipping facilities called tor
the elimination of this appropriation,.
HupeVvleor Arnold asked the board
to withhold action en this appropria
tion la order to give him time to
"think It over." With this proposed
lose af revenue and the recent with
drawal of Castle and Cooke of its flaan
rial support, with also a recommenda
tion that its subsidiary concerns also
withdraw their support, the Promotion
Committee is due for some hard finan
cial sledding for the next nix months.
It costa in the neighborhood of
1.10,000 a year properly to finance the
Promotion Committee. The monthly
expense of the Honolulu office, in
cluding .salaries and office rent, are
about fl23 a month. The Pan Fran
risco office costs about 400 a month
to rnn. Other expenses are for the
printing and distribution of folders and
pamphlets and the traveling expenses
of Its agents. While it is not believed
feasible to discontinue the work that
this organisation has been doing alto
gether, it is the opinion of the board
that the expenses of the committee
be materially cut to meet the present
wsr time conditions.
