and Battle Lineup.
Italy is at war with Austria-Hun

The Italian senate Friday, by a vote
of 262 to 2, passed the bill of Premier
8alandra granting plenary powers to
the government in dealing with the
situation that has arisen through
Italy's and Austria's being unable to
reach an agreement concerning the
demands Italy has made upon Austria.
Austrian and German forces of
heavy artillery are concentrated on
the frontier at Trent, Bozen and Me
ran and movements of considerable
bodies of troops are reported from
Munich. Great numbers of Italian
troops are massed along the frontier,
It appears the Austrians consider
that a state of war already exists.
They have withdrawn their troops and
customs guards from the frontier at
Ponte Caffare and Lodrone after de
stroying the bridges, the telegraph
and telephone lines and the electric
Slight apparatus. Other bridges on
the frontier have been mined.

News of Moment From War Fronts.
Submarines play an important part
in the latest events connected with
the European war. The battleship
Majestic has been sent to the bottom
off Gallipoli peninsula by a German
torpedo.
The British steamer Morwenna was
sunk not far from the Old Head of
Kinsale, where the Lusitania disaster
occurred, and the Danish steamer
Betty was disposed of in the North
Sea, both by German submarines.
Another tragedy of the sea has oc
curred at Sheerness, where the Brit
ish auxiliary steamer Princess Irene
has been blown up by an accidental
explosion on board. More than 300
lives are reported to have been lost
in this disaster, the s ip being blown
to fr:agments.
Th' British submarine E-11 has
madl! a long; trip under nmine field:s,
part of the way throu:gh the Darda
nelles and the Sea of Marmoara up to
the very waters of ('olsallainpioi, a
divtance of approximtualy l 2 ",0 milh(s.
In the course of this expedition she
sank an anlmunition v'o.,l in the Sea
of MIarmora, torpedoed a supply ship
at Rodosto and tlischarged a torpedo
at a transport along the arsenal at
Constantinople, the effect of which
is not known.
What is officially described as "the
greatest aerial exploit yet accom
plished (luring the war" has been car
ried out by a squadron of French aero
planes numbering eighteen, which
dropped bombs on the great explosives
factory at Ludwigshafen and an an
nex near Oppau, which are declared
by the French war office to have set
the factory buildings on fire. Short
ly after the raid the entire section
where the factories were located was
enveloped in vast clouds of smoke.
The king of Italy has taken su
preme command of the army and navy
and now is with his troops at the
front. On the Austro-Italian frontier
and for a few miles in Austrian ter
ritory, the Italian lines stretch for a
distance of fifty miles or more. In
their forward movement the Italians
have occupied several towns and are
striking eastward toward Trieste.
Another British battleship, the Tri
umph, has fallen a victim in the op
erations in the I3ardanelles. A tor
pedo, whether German or Turkish is
not known, sent her to the bottom.
The British admiralty reports that
probably most of the officers and crew
were saved.
The British are reported by Paris to
have made a frbsh advance near La
Bassee. The British war office says
that in this region since May 1 the
British have pierced the German line
for a total front of over three miles.
The American steamer Nebraskan,
Captain Green, from Liverpool May 24
for Delaware Breakwater, was either
torpedoed Wednesday by a submarine
or struck on a mine at a point forty
miles west-southwest of Fastnet, off
the south coast of Ireland. The Ne
braskan is on her way back to Liver
pool.
Italy has addressed to the neutral
governments of the world a lengthy
communication explaining her reasons
for declaring war on Austria. Count
di Cellere, the Italian ambassador at
Washington, presented the document
to Secretary Bryan Tuesday in the
form of a note to the United States
government.
It reviews negotiations between
Italy and Austria revealing that they
began immediately upon the dispatch
of Austria's ultimatum to Serbia.
Italy claimed then that the action of
Austria disturbed the equilibrium of
the Balkans and the peace of Europe
in a way that vittlly affected Italian
interests. As an ally of Austria, Italy
asserts the right to have been con
sulted before the sending of the ulti
matum, the first news of which was
received through the newspapers
Failing to obtain through diplo
macy the satisfaction of her territorial
and national aspirations, Italy an
nounces in the note that a declaration
of war was the only means of safe
guarding her position in Europe.
The Austrian cruiser Helgoland
and three torpedo boat destroyers en
countered two Italian torpedo boat de
stroyer3 near Barletta, one of which
escaped, but the other of which was
struck by a shell and compelled to
surrender in a sinking condition.
The Austrian destroyers rescued
thirty-five men of the crew of the Ital
lan boat. including its commander,
Rome officially announces that the
Italians have occupied a number of
comparatively important towns and
have compelled the Austrians to re
treat. This in brief summarizes the
first thirty-six hours of the newest
phase of the everwidening European
conflict.
The government of the Netherlands
has sent a note to Germany protest
ing against the sinking on May 7 of
the Cunard line steamer Lusitania by
a German submarine. The contents
of this note are substantially the
same as those in the American com
munication on the same subject.

CONVENTION PLAN
MAY GET APPROVAL
COMPROMISE ON LOCKE BILL
RESTRICTING SHIPMENTS
INTO DRY TERRITORY.
ANTI-TRUST MEASURES UP
Political Situation Grows Clearer as
Legislature End Week's
Labor.
Baton Rouge.
Chances of success for the opposi
tion to a constitutional convention
rapidly are being dissipated.
Attorney General R. G. Pleasant
definitely has forfeited the possibility
of support from the New Orleans reg
ular organization in his gubernatorial
aspirations.
Lieut. Cov. T. C. Barrett issued a
statement, from Shreveport paying his
respects to Speaker L. E. Thomas and
the opponents of the convention plan.
The compromise on the Locke bill
restricting shipment of liquor into
"dry" territory will receivo l bth aI
ministration and city supl lrt.
These were t!) outst:in ii;,g dvelop
ments in the legislg i' o f1, : o!itic l
situation. With the gov rnar and a
lanrze part of the Gene:- Asim.b'lh
in New (Or!ons for the we,.?K-snd, t!,
r',nter of activity was tran. <erred to
the city.
On the other tack. a line-up of ther
opposition to anti-trust legislation
with the anti-conventi;nists was no
ticeable. In one case, a member of
the HIouse who started out a supporter
of the convention changed within two
days to on opponent. Investigation
showed a close business relationship
between this nman and a wealthy man
interested in the defeat of the anti
trust bills. Gossip about Baton Rouge
throughout the week credited much of
the suddenly aroused opposition to
trust influences.
This turn of affairs had a natural
tendency to throw the support of the
sugar planters and those most vitally
interested in anti-trust legislation be
hind the convention. The majority of
them already were favorably inclined
toward the administration because of
Gov. Hall's vigorous espousal of their
cause against the American Sugar Re
fining Company, but the rumored trust
activities against the convention plan
removed the last doubt.
TOLD IN A FEW LINES.
Memorial resolutions upon the
death, since the last session, of Sena
tor Leopold Caspari, of Natchitoches.
"the Nestor of the Senate," were pre
sented by a committee, under the
chairmanship of Senator Cunnlngham,
successor to the deceased senator, and
adopted unanimously by a rising vote.
Eulogies were pronounced by Sena
tos Cunningham and Barrow.
A delegation of Baton Rouge women
sent to the Senate chamber an artistic
offering of sweet peas and ferns to be
placed upon the desk formerly occu
pied by Senator Caspari, pow the desk
of Senator Cunningham. After being
placed upon the desk, the flowers were
photographed, and pictures of them
will be sent to Natchitoches friends
of Senator Caspari.
On behalf of the breweries of New
Orleans, Attorney Sullivan urged the
Senate committee on corporations to
return a favorable report upon Sena
tor Dowling's bill for the elimination
of "blind tigers." The bill was re
ported favorably by the committee.
To empower the board of port com
missioners to regulate the commerce
of the port of New Orleans and the
tariff thereto is the object of Senate
Bill No. 9. Under the acts of 1900 a
fixed set of port charges was estab
lished.
Representative Byrnes' contingent
expense bill providing for payment of
expenses of the session reached the
Senate from the House, and, upon mo
tion of Senator Wilbert, was referred
to the Senate committee on finance.
The automobile license tax will net
the parishes $38,332.12 for good roads
building. The apportionment of the
proceeds to the parisheh has been
completed in the office of the secre
tary of state.
Three bills affecting the New Or
leans Board of Port Commissioners
were introduced in the Senate by Sen
ator Davey, and referred, on his mo
tion, under suspension of the rules, to
the committee on affairs of the city of
New Orleans.
William M. Phillips, of New Orleans,
