GERMANS PUSH WAR ON BOTH
FRONTS LONDON RIOTS
Berlin, via London. Russian cen
ter suffered another crushing defeat
General Von Hindenburg's troops
stormed three heigfifs-of Kiesko on
Zeelswanka river. Bavarians captur
Paris. With rifle fire, gas bombs
and heavy artillery, Germans are vio
lently attacking French positions in
Alsace and Vosges mountains.
London. Serious outbreaks by
maddened mobs feared here as result
of Zeppelins' latest bombardment
Special constables sent to guard Ger
man shops, boarded up since intern
ment of enemy aliens.
No incident since war began has
aroused such horror and resentment
in London as raid over the capital on
Wednesday night, when men, women
and children were killed or wounded
by explosive bombs from kaiser's di
rigibles. The Berlin claim that western part
of city of London, factories near Nor
wich and harbor and iron works near
Middleborough were attacked by the
Zeppelins will not be confirmed or de
nied, officials believing that any
statement might be useful to enemy
in establishing the locality raided and
proving of value on future Zeppelin
raids on England.
New forms of fire insurance poli
cies issued by private insurance cor
porations all provide for payment in
case of Zeppelin damage.

Brussels.. Destroyed by explosion
that followed. Crew killed.

tant victories in the southeast on as
sumption by czar of leadership of
Slav armies officially declared untrue.

bor has defeated attempt for compul
sory enlistment in British armies, at
least for near future.
Paris. Two French aviators raid
ing German positions in Alsace killed

fence as they were landing, causing
bomb cargoes to explode.
REGRET SEEING SABATH LEAVE
Some regrets have been expressed
to The Day Book over the proposed
switching of Judge Sabath from the
court of domestic relations to the
speeders' court, as announced in
Chief Justice Olson's assignments, -
made public today. The switch is to J
take place Monday. Judge Hopkins
is to take the domestic relations
The feeling in favor of Sabath is
in no way a slight on Hopkins, who is
considered a very just judge. Here
is the argument that has brought
about the regrets. Sabath speaks
seven languages and the domestic re
lations court naturally caters to all
nationalities. It is argued that a per
son is able to get better action when
their story can be told direct to a
judge instead of through an inter
preter. o o
