FRENCH VIEW OPTIMISTIC

Commentator ta Paris,
Farm, Oct. 24. French commentators
point out that If Von Maekensen la able
to tie up the llusso-Rumanlan forces
In Dobrudja by holding; n narrow front
alone the railroad, he will not be slow
to employ his troops thus released to
act In direct correlation with the Aus-tro-Clerman
army operating In Transyl
ranla, which, they Insist. Is the essential
front from which alone Ilucharest can
be attacked with any chance of de
Lone before that, they believe, the
Allies will be In a position to turn the
tables. That Rumania Is far from
crushed, they nay, Is evident from the

Xesaaces Were Seat !. at.
Washington, Oct 34. In the absence
at the Ambassador, Prince Hatxfeldt,
oounsellor of the Qerman embassy, to-
aay characterised as "to absurd for
comment" a story appearing In the
Providence Journal purporting to tell In
detail of Germany's prospective subma
rine, operations off the Atlantic roast.
The story alleged that tho Informa
tion camo from Qerman embassy cir
cles. It described mysterious wireless
anastages sent out from the high pow
ered German wireless station at Nauen
o the submarines lying near tho coast
and quoted an alleged conversation with
the Perm an Ambassador and, a letter
from Capt. Boy-Ed. who was 'described
as managing the submarine campaign.
The Impression was created. It 1b ex
plained, that the letter of Capt. Boy-Ed
containing this highly secret Informa
tion had been Intercepted by the Urltlsh
authorities, as Capt. Hoy-Ed had every
reason to believe It would he.
Assistant Hecretary of the Navy
Roosevelt said tho story appeared to
him at once aa a "pure Invention." but
as a matter of curiosity he had anccr
talned that the mysterious wireless mes
ages were myths, as no report of them
had reached the Navy Department,
which Mr. Roosevelt said assuredly
would not have been the case had the
messages ever been really sent.

It had been advised of the action

poed by Great Britain on American to
bacco bought by dealers for shipment to
Scandinavia and the Netherlands, and
put Into effect on July 15 last and quoted
a statement by the British Embassy as
"Shipments of tobacco made under
bona fide contracts entered Into before
July 13 need not be consigned to the
Netherlands Oversea Trust or covered by
guarantees In the case of shipments to
Scandinavia, provided that the consign

The British authorities regard as
most Important the provision that the
goods mut have been shipped on a
through bill of lading for land and sea
carriage, or under direct ocean hill, be
fore August 31. and they must Insist
upon Its fulfilment."
As a concession to American tobacco
Interests, tobacco bought nnd paid for
prior to August 4 and shipped prior to
August 31 was allowed to go forward
free of thes restrictions, but It was
found that this concession wns inade.
quale to relieve the hardships brought
upon tho tobacco Interests by the sud
den Imposition of the restrictions named.
The Department of State then took up
the question with the British Govern
ment, w ill the result mat from

come subject to release under n new
concession, and thai a somewhat lesser

to be. made tho base for Cnrrhizista op
erations against Pnncho Villa, according
to official announcement to-day. Andres
(tarda. Inspector of consulates for the
carranza Government, returnlnc to-dav
from a visit to the First Chief, asserted
that 12,000 are to be nut Into western
Chihuahua at once to attempt to capture
Villa, and ttm 2.000 of these arc coming
to Juarez to be used as reenforcemcnts
to be hurried to the point where they are
neeaeii at any particular time.
The change of base, uccordlng to
American army onicers, was made bo
cause It Is next to Impossible for the
Carranzlstas to operate out of the city
of Chihuahua. All forces sent out of
that city have been either defeated or
scattered to such an extent that the Villa
forces are reliably reported In the sub-
urns or tne city itself.
The railroad leading out of Chihua
hua in the direction of the bandit onera
tlons has been so badly damaged that It
Is declared Impossible to send troops
after Villa. Mr. Garcia says n part of
the force of 12.000 men will be stationed
In that city, ile asserts that Juarez Is
to be used as the base of operations
merely because Villa appears to b.
headed north, and It Is desired to pre
vent him at all hazards reaching the
American border and committing liny
depredations ngalntjt Americans at this
time, when the Mexican-American con
ference Is In progress.
