Baggage Is Sent East.
AMSTERDAM, Nov. 6. A sudden move
ment Indicating a hurried departure by
the Germans from Antwerp began Wed
nesday midnight and continued through
out yesterday. Tho wounded In the hos
pitals were removed In the night and tho

ages of IS and SO have been arrested, and
oldleni with fixed bayonets placed to
guard them. About 100 were taken to
tho Merxem station.

THE MINOR HORRORS OF WAR
AS TOLD IN NEWS DISPATCHES
L4f In the trenches appears by no
means to be the Irksome and dreadful
thing it is reported to bo. According to
soldiers back In Paris from tho firing
line, troops that aro supposed to face
each other grimly across a lire-swept
space only a few hundred yards wide
are not tho bloodthirsty fellows wo all
took thorn for.
They carry chivalry Into their work
and certain conventions, all making ftfr
comfort have been tacitly established be
tween them. For example, townrd mid
day both sides suspend file In order that
they may cat luncheon In peace. They
would undoubtedly oblige each other
when tho evening meal Is due but for
tho unhappy fact that the dinner hours
of tho contending armies do not tnlly.

READY TO FIGHT
Twelve Hundred in This
City Drill Twice a Week.
Forty Thousand in America
Await Call to Battle.
Twelve hundred Polish Falcons, resi
dents of Philadelphia, are undergoing
grueling military drill twice every week
and Held maneuvers once, each month,
awaiting the moment when the national
body may be called to arms to fight for
the freedom of Poland.
This is not the drilling of an "awkward
squad," but the expert drilling of uni
formed and armed soldiers, who aro
keeping strict military training, hoping
that tho freedom of their Fatherland may
be accomplished peacefully, but deter
mined to tight to the end If It cannot
The fact that tho Polish Falcons ex
isted in this country has never been a
secret, but few have realized the mag
nitude of this force there are 40.000 In
America and 30,000 of theso are In the
United Btates while fewer still have
realized that the outbreak of the Euro
pean war has placed the military activ
ity of this body In an entirely new light,
for the present conflict la what the Fal
cons have been waltlnc for for years, h
conflict In which the Powers now holding
portions of their country are fighting
against each other and are having their
military strength weakened by stagger
ing losses. '
The Falcons of this country are divided
Into 16 major districts or circuits, which
are subdivided into S16 amaller units called
"nests." Philadelphia la In Circuit No. 13,
which Includes such neighboring cities as
Camden, Trenton, Reading, Baltimore and
Wilmington. This circuit Is composed of
123 nests. 12 of these being In this city.
The officers of Circuit No. 13 are P.
Borowlcs, president: O. Kocle, vloo presi
dent! X. Wojsowskl, secretary; "W. No
wak, treaauror. The nests have their
local president, who oversees the military
drill of that division; but once every
month, without previous notice, the cir
cuit president mobilizes the forces of the
entire circuit, and extensive field drills
WOMEN READY TO FIGHT. TOO.
Tho military activity of the Poles Is not
confined to the men there ire 4000 Polish
women In this country who go through
drills no less rigorous. They, too, meet
twlee each weok, and are trained in
bandaging wounds and the performing of
other duties of field nurse, while some
of tho bolder ones among them have or
ganized uniformed and armed lighting
companies which aro rapnble of perform
ing actlvo duty at the front.
Poland Is at prcsont split Into threo sec
tions Gallcia, owned by Austria-Hun-KnryfHussian
Poland and Prussian Po
lnnd. At the outbreak of tho present hos
tilities tho Poles of Gallcia and Prussia
were allowed to organize nn Independent
body of troops numborlng 20,000 men, who
were to protect their territory from Rus
sian Invasion, tho Intimation being that
If they did so Germany and Austria would
recognlzo their national Independence at
tho closo of the war.
Tho Poles of Russian Toland, on tho
other hand, were Informed that If thoy
fought for Russia, that nation would rec
ognize their national independenco even
tually. This has put the Poles In a pro
carious position, some of them hclng
obliged to support tho one side and soma
the other; the result has been the an
nouncement on the part of Russia that
tho offer for lndependonco Is now void,
for. It is said, some of tho Russian Poles
have not only refused to tight for Russia,
but havo gono to the aid of the Poles of
(Prussia and Gallcia.
TO PETITION THE POWERS.
With this situation in mind, tho Polish
Falcons of this country Intend to demand
their national Independenco at the first
opportunity; they will present a petition
signed by 3,000,000 Poles to tho Powers,
and If this Is denied they will rush to tho
aid ot their Fatherland and attempt to
accomplish by force what the rebellions

The enthuslalsm of the Falcons Is
splendid. P. Wasowlcz, vice president
of one of tho Philadelphia neBts, when
questioned as to the probable outcome
of their plans, replied;
"I do not know, but whatever happens
every one of us will glvo his life gladly
for his country. Wo hate tho slavery
that holds our country down, and the
time has almoit come when tho Falcon
will break from his bonds or die.
"Every one of us is ready to return to

country needs us perhaps some stay after
that and noma return. Anyway, tho life
of every Falcon belongs to tho Father
landthat Is all that matters, and If he
dies, each ono wants to die fighting for
the freedom of the Falcon.
"Poland onco hod the whlto eagle for

Is conquered. But when we nrc sub

oppressor, the symbol Is no longer fitting,

Tho Figaro prints a letter to a resident
of Tarls from his son, a. French soldiery
who Is now a German prisoner. Tho;
latter says that the Germans are training .
