French Troops Ready
To Move Against Turks
When Passage Is Open
LONDON, Feb. 21. Interest in the
bombardment of the Dardanelles fortifi
cations by the Anglo-French fleet today
shared the Interest with the German
blockade of the British coast. It Is J
believed that an agreement nas Deen
reached to endeavor to force the pas
sage of the strait and capture Con
stantinople. There is no doubt that Russia has her
hands full with the Austro-Gcrman
x forces and that little assistance can be
expected from her at this time against
the Turks. But whether the reduction
of the forts fronting the Aegeon Sea

It would help, of course, but the en
tire Dardanelles Is strewn with mines,
and the Turks can be depended on to
strengthen their fortifications along the
narrow straits In every way.
That the attempt Is to be made seems
certain, and the admiralty is the cen
ter of interest. It Is reported a great
French force is in readiness to be sent
to Turkev onco the way is onened and.
if the Dardanelles can be forced, there J
is a clear road for Russia to send troops

an attempt tor force tho passage of the

The bombardment, which began Fri

Fire of Forts Accurate.
The shell fire of the forts was so ac

which at first attempted to steam well
within range in an effort to throw shells
over the top of the outer ramparts, were
driven back, and most of their shots
were fired at a range so long that the

PARIS, Feb. a. Fresh gains for tho

The Germans renewed their auaulta
upon the French trenches several miles
north of Verdun. They made six furi
ous attacks with .the object of capturing
positions from which shell-flre could be
directed upon Verdun Itself. Each on
slaught was repulsed.
The French troops then .counter at-
tacked, and, following close upon the
heels of the retreating Germans, cap
tured Bcveral rows of trenches adjacent
to those occupied Friday. Two hundred
prisoners, two mortars, and other war
material were taken by the French.
Successful North of Perthes.
Success for the French offensive move
ment north of Perthes is claimed In the
,.,,. . I .. rrl -.. r.V. (nrcoil
official communMo .The French forced
the Germans to evacuate a wood where
the enemy held a strong position. Tho
offensive movement In the Champagne
Is developing favorably. The Germans
have ceased to attack In that region and
in tho Argonnc.
The official statement said that vio
lent cannonading continues in Belgium,
and all along tho battle line from the
seacoast to Rhclms.
The general movement to press the
Germain out of French territory Is al
ready under way. This is indlcuted by
the latest unofficial advices from tho
front. In the north there has been much
severe lighting along the entire front
from Iens, inside of the Belgian fron
tier. But at every point, the reports
hay. the Hermans have been repulsed
with heavy losses.
Fighting Severe on Long Line.
Commencing on the Arras road, south
of Lens, the battle line extends north
through Vermelles to the east of Gl
venchy, then describes an acute angle
to Fcstubert, shifts almost due east by
! north to a point east of Armentteres.
and wavers betwten Ypres and Zonne-
beke through Langemarck t$ Nieuport
and the coast. All along this line p
vore fighting has been In progress for
several days. The British forces de
fending the chief portions of this lin
have been heavllv re-enforced.
Through snow .which at some places
Is waist deep, the contending forces are
battling in the Vosges. Tho French
troops have made small gains, but It Is
believed that no definite results can be
expected until after the spring thaws.
A similar situation exists in upper Al
sace. Notable Successes Claimed.
Notable successes In the Argonne, won
by desperate lighting, and gains all
along tho western battle, front for the
ten days ended February 17 are chron
icled In the report of the official "eye
witness," Issued by the minister of war.
The report says of recent operations:
"During the past ten days detestable
weather, continuous rains in some
parts and violent snow squalls in
others, and thick fog have hindered tho
operations nearly everywhere on the
western battlefront. In spite of the con
ditions this period has been favorable
or us- uur aruiiery ootainea very dhi-
Hunt results, and the enemy evidently
was unable to equal our fire. The
French superiority In ammunition and
supplies is being more and more con
hrtned. "Our Infantry showed an aggressive
spirit In the Artols, Champagne, Ar
gonne, and Alsace regions, and their
operations crowned with success.
Allied Artillery Scores.
"Wo thus obtained appreciable results.
That the German official communica
tions, after having flatly denied the
statement, have now partially admitted
that prisoners and materials have fallen
Into our hands, moieovcr, is tho best
proof of our successes."
The total communication discusses in
detail the activity ot the allied artillery
in the region from the English channel
to the river Aisne. it alludes to the ex
cellent work of the Belgian batteries
and the remarkable energy of the British
artillery, working In conceit with the
French guns. Shells, the writer says,
weie placed with remarkable uccuracy,
rendering the movements ot the German
troops In the rear of their trenches ex
ceedingly difficult and often impossible.

Russ Are Attacked On
700-Mile Battle Line
Germans Lead Austrians in Fresh Effort to Retake
Lemberg Mackensen Unable to Resume Strong
Offensive in Front of Warsaw.
PETROGRAD, Feb. 21. German troops are leading the Aus
trians in fresh onslaughts in an effort to force the Russians to evacuate
Lemberg, official dispatches announce.
The Germans are pressing forward vigorously along the railroad
leading from Munkacs through tho Carpathians to Lemberg. In the
region of Tuchla their attacks have been "particularly fierce," the
war office admits, and at one turn in the battling forced the Russians
to retire from a strong position on the heights northwest of Senechuwa.
This position was afterward retaken by the Russian at the point of the

Pastors in Metropolitan District
Preach Against Evil of Plural
NEW YORK, Feb. 21. This li Polyg
amy Sunday. In churches all over New
York city and the metropolitan district
In Long Island and New Jersey pastors
preached today against polygamy as a
national menace to the American home.
The movement is conducted by the
T'ederatlon of Churches of Greater New
York, and notices to tho effect this Is
Polygamy Sunday were read from
churches In which regular Lenten pro
prams could bo Interrupted.
In the belief that America Is threat-
cnod with the spread of polygamy, the
federation has undertaken this method
of counteracting the efforts of persons
it is certain have been preaching the
doctrine of polygamv.
The designation of a day of prayer
and sermons as part of the campaign
by the federation was the idea of Mrs.
George W. Oolemon. president of Coun
cil of Women for Home Missions of 600
Clergjmen See Play.
Mrs. Coleman recently saw a perform
ance of "Polygamy," by Harvey O'HIg
Kins and Harriet Ford, in the Park
Theater, and suggested the clergymen of
New York take up the fight against the
danser portraved In the play.
Polygamy Sunday Is the result of her
suggestion. In the last several days
hundreds of clergymen from this city
and nearby places have attended per
formances of the play at the Invitation
of the management. Many prominent
preachers were among their number.
Several already have delivered sermons
after seeing "Polygamy," and arrange
ments are being made for a further pul
pit campaign after today's church talks.
"About a thousand ministers in New
York city are supporting the Glllett bill
to make polygamy a Federal crime,"
said Dr. Walter Laidlaw. executive sec
retary of the Federation of Churches
"The reason for this special activity
against polygamy at this time and In
this part of the country Is the recall
of Mormon missionaries from the
Kuropean war zone, bringing the
menace of polygamy Into the Rnst
with active propaganda directed from
Play "Strong Propaganda."
"A polygamy committee was organ
ized bv the Ministers' Monday Morn
ing Club last fall. Opportunely the play
'Polygamy' was produced. It Is the
strongest propaganda any cause could
have. Mote than 600 clergymen recently
attended a special matlneo In the Park
Theater. We want this play to take
Its message to all America. Now or
never must this menace to the American
home be destroyed by passing the Gll
lett bill, so the National Government
cun step In nnd prosecute In States
whero the dominating Mormon Influ
ence would moke impossible the prose
cution of polygamlst3 by the States
Campaign to be Continued.
"Polygamy Sunday will not bo con
fined to one date. Many ministers will
preach against this menace next week
or at a later date to conform with
programs arranged In advance. Several,
notably Dr. Joseph Silverman, whose
sermon attracted wide attention, hare
already talked from the pulpit on tho
