Vlan right flank In the Carpathians
and Plcld .Mnrshnl win I.lnHlngcn, with
the Austrian Archduke Joseph Perth

May the knell of Warsaw was rounded.
Threo times before. In October, No
vember and February, Field .Marshal
xon lllndcnbutg had attempted to tako
the Toll-ili capital an the Vistula by
frontal attacks, and threo times he had
failed, Once lie had come south direct I v
"'tough l'rzasnysz, only to be beaten
bark before he could reach the fortriss.-s
on the Vistula. A second time, following
the Russian defeat In the Mazurlan
Lakes region, he had driven straight
south with like result, and a third time,
coming from the Hzura-Rawka line, his
foices had received a terrible defeat.
This tlmr Oct many and Austria were
not to advance directly upon the Narew,
Vistula or Warsaw fortresses, but by
a series of drives cut off the communl
cations of Warsaw, Isolate Its bulging
line and compel a surrender. No one
was to attempt the big guns of Novo
Georglevsk or the other big forts, but
they were to starve them out.
The plan brlelly required that the
Austrian-German forces were to Inter
cept the three railways communicating
between Warsaw and Petrograd, Moscow
and Kleff respectively. In order to
operate against the last two It was
necessary that Gallcla, then In the hands
of the Russians, practically be cleared
and substantial bases established In
Poland Itself, upon which drives could
ptoceed due north and due northwest.

from Suwalki or Pultusk. Once all the

1'Alils, Aug, 8, The German forces In
the Vosges displayed much nctlvlty yes
terday and to-djy, attacking at various
points In an endeavor to regain zome of
the ground lost there In recent weeks.
Hefore dawn yesterday morning they
delivered n strong attack against the po
sitions on Klnm-kopf, temporarily forc
ing tho French troops back nt several
iHilnts, but In the end holding only a
portion of the trenches on the crest. To
day they attacked the positions on
I Hchnitzmaennelo peak, capturing a
I blockhouse, only to be driven back by
French assaults.
F.lsowhore on tho French front there
have been only grenade and artillery en
counters.
The night communique was at fol
lows :
On the western part of the front
there wns moderate artillery activity.
In the Argon ne the engagements be
tween bomb throwers and troopz
thtuwlng hand grenades, as well ai the
artillery bombardment, were continued,
but with less Intensity on the part of
the enemy. There was a violent bom
bardment in tho Apremont forest.
In the Vonges very desperate fight
ing Is announced on the heights dom
inating the northern branch of the
Fecht, especially at Schratsmaennele
wak, where the enemy, after having
captured one of our blockhouses, was
driven from the position b an Imme
diate counter attack. Our sweeping
fire Inflicted very heavy losses on the
Germans.
The statement Issued this afternoon
had this to say :
In the Artols district, around Sou
chez, there took place last night fairly
spirited engagements with grenades
and bombs, as well as with artillery.
There were also fairly actlvo ar
tillery exchanges at Tracy-le-Val and
In the vicinity of Vallly, In the Valley
of Alsne.
In the Argonnes the night passed
with much activity. There were rifle
firing and the throwing of bombs
from trench to trench, together with
artillery firing on several different
occasions.
On the heights of the Meuse, at
Hols Haut, a German attack was
easily checked.
In the Vosge.s last night there was
a continued and very severe bombard
ment of our trenches at Llngekopf.

FRENCH PARTIES TO
WORK AS ONE IN WAR
I'min-tial Demonstration of Pa

of Deputies.
MESSAGE FROM POTXCAHE
SpfeM Cable nenpateh lo Tut Sts,
Paiiih, Aug. S. The Chamber of Dep
uties was the scene to-day of nn ex
traordinary exhibition of patriotism In
which the members of all political fac
tions, brought together by the danger
menacing the republic, burled their dif
ferences of economic belief and tacitly
ngreed to work as one party until the
end of the war.
Actually there was no solemn pldge
taken to this effect, but there was am
ple Indication of a unanimous determi
nation from nil parties. And In a Reuse,
of course, It was unnecessary that such
a pledge should be taken,. In view of
the agreement reached since the last
session of the Chamber that a union of
all political parties shall exist until
France has won complete victory,
Paul Desrhanel, President of the
Chamber, was the speaker who Inter
preted the determination of the mem
bers. His remarks in a way were a
sequel to those of M. Rodzlnanko, Pre!,
dent of the Russian Duma, at the recent
opening of the Duma's session and u
reply to tho manifesto of the Kaiser
Issued on the nnnlversary of the war.
"This year." he said, "has been so
full of glory that It will forever lllu
mlnate the human race. It has been n
year In which France, the France of
Joan of Arc and of Valmy, haw risen
If possible to even greater heights.

"Let us thrust to one side both lhe

Special Cable ttetpaleh lo Inr, Sis.
London, Aug. ft, A strong campaign
has been launched In the Fngllsh news
papers against the Increasing importa
tion of American made automobiles,
which are rapidly flooding the market.
Complaint Ik made that while thu Hrlt
lsh manufacturers cannot compete with
the cheap cars made In the United
State, the factories are made to suffer
further by the necessity of producing
war materials and munitions, giving up
tl.elr trade, while even their profits nre
regulated by the Government.
Meanwhile the American manufactur
ers arc sending many cars and abso
lutely nbsorblng the Kngllsh market,
which Is likely to be completely In their
hands by autumn. It Is suggested that
a heavy Import tax bo placed on automo
biles. II. P. Vane, director of the Nnplcr
& Son Company, In a letter to the news
papers, uiges nn even more drastic
measure, namely, complete prohibition of
the Importation of nil pleasure cars dur
ing tho war.
"Kvery American car purchased In
the United Kingdom," he writes, "menus
so much gold going from this country
across the Atlantic, thus eventually nf
fectlng adversely the value of the Hrlt
Irh sovereign compared with the Ameri
can dollar. Again, and what Is more
Important, the future of the Hrltlsh mo
tor Industry must be built up nnd devel
oped ill the face of most adverse condi
tions. It Is certainly the duty of the
Hrltlsh Government to protect an In
dustry which cannot, by reason of Its
loyalty, retain Its trade. It Is to be
hoped that the Government will act
promptly."

BRITAIN DECIDES
FOR CONSCRIPTION
Cabinet, Meeting on Anniver
sary of War, Agrees It Is
t'navoidable.
TU( OI'TCRY EXPECTED
Special Cable Pupatch lo Tim Sc.
IxiNtxiN, Aug. 4 (delayed In transmis
sion). It Is learned on excellent au
thority that the Cabinet has decided to
Inaugurate a system of conscription in
raising additional Hrmles for Great Hrlt
nln nnd that the practice In all proha-
I blllty will bo put In force early In tha
' fall, or as soon after the adjournment
of Parliament as possible.
I This Information came to tho corre-
spondent of Tilt! Su.v this afternoon fol
, lowing a Cabinet meeting In Downing
street, held Immediately after the anni
versary services In St. Paul's. Hoth
F.arl Kitchener and Premier Asqulth
were present, and although there Is no
official Information In regard to tho
.subjects discussed It Is known that the
question of cumpulsory service was
again- thrashed out and this time with
u result that virtually dispels all doubt
about the Government's Intentions.
It Is, however, absolutely Incorrect, as
nsserted by a section of the press which
advocates conscription, that the volun
tary system has been n failure. On the
contrary, that system has proved most
successful. It has produced all that
was ever expectid of It, and It n ovcrn
correct to say that It has come up tu
the most sangutno expectations of the
Mlnlstcra.
It Is true that the voluntary system
has reached the limit of Its possibllltUs
for raising new armies, and that the
number of recruits now being obtained
Is barely sufficient to till tho gups the
war causes In- the ranks.
Tun Sun's correspondent Is Informed
that no fewer than eleven members of
the Cabinet are strongly In favor of nn
linnudlatu Institution of csnnpulsoi.t
service. The foiemost of these members
arc Iavld Llo)d George, .Minister of
Munitions; Winston Spt-ncer Churchill,
Chancellor for the Duchy of Lancaster,
and a majority of the Unionist members
of the Government.
It Is known that Sir Fdward Giey,
Sicretary for Foreign Affairs, Is sym
pathetic toward a system of compulsion,
while liirl Kitchener, who laruly ex
presses his views even tu his closest
otllclal friends. Is energetically oppose. i
to the view that the voluntaty system
has proved a failure. He Is willing to
admit, however, that new methods are
needed.
The exact basla on which a compul
sory service bill would be formed Is
not yet definitely decided. It Is prob
able that the first cIasscs of men to he
called to serve the colors will be un
married men between the uges of 1?
mid .ID.
The Governmi nt Is now paying liberal
allowances to the dependents of mar
ried men who havo gone to the front
under the voluntary system, and Un
charge upon the Kxchequer Is so great
that the Government wishes to avoid
any further additions under this head.
It Is exclusively for this reason that
single men will be called first.
The work of classifying Information
obtained through the registration bill
will occupy several weeks, perhaps two
months. As soon as It Is coaipleled tin
summoning of nun requited will pro
ceed at once. The system of compulsory
military service (so called because Hrlt
Ishers do not like the word conscrip
tion) prolMhly will reach' a point of
practical application about the end of
October or the beginning of Novem
ber. V. C.'S FOR 12 CANADIANS.
