out that the death sentence had hereto?

"I further called attention to the
failure to comply with Mr. Conrad's

offences charged against Miss I'avell
arere long since accomplished, and a?
lbs had been for some weeks in a
prison delay in carrying out the sen
tsBCS could entail no danger to the
German cause. I even went so far as
to point out the fearful effect of a
summary execution of this sort upon
public opinion, both here and abroad,

doing so, called attention to the possi?
bility that it might bring about re?

London, Oct. 21. "The situatic
grows more and more _erious. Tl
arrival of Allie, troop? is await*
anxiously," says the Serbian officii
statement issued to-day.
While the Teuton armies are slos
ly but unceasingly pushing south |
both sides of the Morava, the Bti
carian for?*ets are pt?.-s.?ing or. tn th
south, meeting littl. opposition. Ui
kuh is mennced gravely by the it
vader, and the railway to Sal? inici
along which the much needed Allie
rein forcements were expected t
come, has been cut in two places.
The Serb armies are in extrem
peril. In the north the Teuto
forces are only twenty-five mil?
from th? Bulgarians. When a uni<
has been effected -and the Se -y
apparently cannot prevent it tl
operations in the r.orth will m t
with all the rapidity of the i.u'
(.arian moves in Macedonia. Cough
between the two jaws of the vis
and crippled by lack of railways, tit
Serbian troops can hardly escape.
Serbs Realst Fiercely.
But the advance of the Teuton
and their allies has been dearly con
tested. Women and children agi
fighting with the defender? in st
effort to stem the tide of invasion
The stubborn opposition is taxinj
the ?nergie? <>f von . lackensen to tlu
utmost. The (ierinan commande!
has again asked for reinforcements,
for the three army corps which ar?
rived reeS-ttiy have served merely
to fill the gaps in the line. The
Bulgarian. , too, are suffering heavy
losses. At Vranja they are reported
to have lost 10.000 men.
Meanwhile, the Allies are putting
forth every effort to ??btain the aid
if Rumania and Greece. Official con?
firmation is still lacking of the re?
port that Great Britain offered Cy?
prus to Greece as the price of her
help, but diplomat? her? are confi?
dent that the offer has been made
The negotiations with Rumania are
understood to be in the hands of ths
French Foreign 0_.*?\
Consider Allies' Offer.
The Zaimis cabinet in Athens !? con?
sidering the new offer of the Fntent?,
it 11 understood here, observer? point
out that the Greek people favor inter?
vention to save Serbia, and that the
German party is in the minority. Th?
Hntish offer, they ?ay, will .ncreaie
the pro-Ally sentiment. But should the
new negotiation? fail, it is expect.*
that Greece will b. asked to demobil._?
or clearly define her attitude.
In the official communications to-day
the Berieasaesi of the Serb position is
apparent. Ra lroad communication has
been definite!-, interrupted. Nish ad?
mits that at .'ran..., half wiv on th?
line from Nisk to Usksb, ?no at Vo?

garians have pierced tne Serb line? de?
fending the road. Soria claim? to have
cleare?! the Morava valley, through
which the railway run?, for thirteen
miles r.orth ur.d northeast of Vranja.
Northea-t and southeast of Cskub
the Bulgarians have penetrated to with?
in fifteen i?.:i?-- of thi? important sta?
tion on the N i .??-Sal?nica road. The
town, according to Athens d..?patches to
"Th? Morning Post," is rapidly empty?
ing of inhsbitant?, who believe it can
not ho!, out much longer against th?
enemy. Cskub is also a junction on the
railway which runs up th? western ?id?
of Serbia. Kumanovo, to the northeast,
has been occupied and the Bulgarian
cavalry has reached Kisseli to t_e

In the northeast, Berlin ?ay?, th?
