GERMANS HAMMER AT
THE FORTS AT WARSAW
AUSTRO-GERMAN TROOPS CON
TINUE TO TIGHTEN THE LINES
AROUND POLISH CAPITAL.
RUSSIANS FIGHTING HARD
The Situation in France and the Dar
danel'es and on the Austro-Itallan
Front Remains About the Same,
Only Artillery Duels.
Latest From European War Fronts.
The Austre-German armies continue
to press the Rusalan forces defending
Warsaw, and while they have made
progress at some points, they have not
yet made any serious breach in the
well fortified inner line defending that
city.
The Russians, it is true, have been
pressed back to the bridgehead posi
tions directly west of Warsaw and
into the fortress of Ivangorod, further
to the southeast on the Vistula. But
at these points they probably are in
a better position to offer stubborn re
sistance to their opponents.
The two attacks from the north
along the Narew by Field Marshal von
Hindenburg and that which Field
Marshal von Mackensen is directing
from the southeast between the Vis
tula and Bug rivers apparently have
been held up, for the Germans are
waiting for an opportune moment to
move forward and catch the Russian
armies should it be decided to evao
uate WarsaW. At any rate the Berlin
official statement does not claim any
advance from Von Mackensen, while
the report, although it states that the
Russians have ceased their counter
attacks along the Narew, does not
mention any success on the part of
Von Hindenburg.
The seemingly irresistible march of
the Austro-German armies is winning
for them town after town in Russian
Poland and in other territory through
which stretches the thousand-mile
battle front in the east.
Two pivotal points in their drive in
Poland have been turned by the Teu
tonic allies. Ostrolenka, a strong,
hold on the Narew river, several miles
northeast of Warsaw, and Radom, fit.
ty-seven miles to the south of that
town and thirty miles from Ivangorod,
another of the great fortresses which
girdle the Polish capital, have fallen,
according to Berlin and Vienna.
All along the line from the Baltic
to the region of Sokal, across the Bug
river in Galicia, the Austro-Germans
are advancing, and though the fight
ing is severe, the Russians almost
everywhere are falling back before
vicious attacks or retiring voluntarily
to new positions.
Artillery engagements alone charac
terize the warfare on the western line
for the moment. The occupation of
150 yards of German trenches east of
Ypres.e, after the explosion of the Brit
ish mine is reported by Field Marshal
Sir John French. Berlin admits the
explosion of the mine, but asserts that
the British infantry attack following
it was 'put down and that the British
were able to occupy only the crater
'made by the explos!on.
Progress for the Italians on the
Isonho front, especially on the plateau
of Carso, is claimed by Rome.
The Italian forces have been direct,
ing their attention on the bridge head
at Gorizia. At this point they oc
cupied several Austrian trenches, but,
according to the Austrian official
statement, they were driven out.
From the Austrian point of view the
campaign along the Austro-Italian
frontier is proceeding satisfactorily
and the report issued by the Austrian
war office declares that the heavy
fighting in the Kreuseberg district re
i n some six thousand Italian
ties, the dead numbering two
in n , with a total Austrian lose of
two.
An agreement to rettle the great
coal miners' strike In South Wales has
been reached between representatives
of the government and the coal min
ers and', the executive council of the
Miners',Federation. The plan is sub
ject' to the ratification of the miners
themselves, but the belief prevails in
London that the men soon will be at
work again.
Russian torpedo boat destroyers in
the Bla&k sea have sunk a fleet of
fifty-nine Turkish sailing vessels bear
ing cargoes of war materials for the
Turkish army in the Caucasus, accord
ing to a news agency dispatch from
SBebastopol.
A second Italian cruiser has fallen
-victim to an Austrian submarine. The
Oluseppe Garibaldi, one of a squadron
of four which bombarded Cattaro,
was torpedoed and sent to the bottom.
The cruiser sank within fifteen min
utes, but most of the crew were
saved. The other cruiser lost was
the Amalti, torpedoed July 7 in the
Adriatic.
With the enormous number of Ger
man troops being used for the offen
sive in the east-the greatest move
ment of the kind ever undertaken in
the history 'f the war-the military
critics in England do not look for any
events of outstanding importance in
the west for some time to come. The
official reports issued show that thus
far at any rate no itxortant move has
been undertaken by either side.
There have been artillery engage
ments all along the front and a few
infantry att.cks, but they were in
finitesimal in comparison with the
operations in the east.
T SWEEPING ORDER OF THE
I. C. C. AFFECTING TARIFF
Commission Establishes Class Rates,
3N- But Refuses Application to In
clude All of This State.
Washington.-Practically the east
ern half of Texas was officially In
cluded in the Shreveport territory by
a sweeping order of the interstate
commerce commission Friday when it
extended the effect of the Shreveport
in rate case to include Gainesville, Fort
Worth, Waco and all points between
those places and Shreveport. The or
der is effective Sept. 16. "Eastern
ts. Texas" is defined by the commission's
fue order to embrace all territory east of
ling a line dow n through the places named,
ade thence via B3razos river to the gulf.
not The commission establishes class
the rates to apply In the territory, but de
:hat nied the application of the Louisiana
railroad commission to ec.tend the
new order of things to include "the
entire State of Texas." The commod
ity rate situation was adjusted, how
and ever, within the defined territory by
her the order equalizing as between the
east and west-bound traffic.
There are established class rates for
re- traffic westbound out of Shrevoport
and for traffic moving from points in
)rth the defined Texas territory toward
von Shreveport, which ratesare the Texas
ield commission scales up to distances of
ting 245 miles, and from that to distances
Vis- of 450 miles, the Texas-Oklahoma
ave scale, as fixed in the case of the Ok
are lahoma commission against the Santa
to Fe. In the commission's original or
sian der the Texas commission scale was v
vao- found to be not too low and was made o
rlin I applicable in the Shreveport case. It
any was admitted by petitioners in the
hale pending case that the rates for hauls
the in excess of 245 miles as fixed by the
iter Texas commission were not remunera
notive, and since there is a similarity be
of tween the Texas commission's scale
and the rates fixed in the Oklahoma
1 of case the commission adopted the Tex
ing as-Oklahoma scale for distances over
Slan the 245-mile l'a:l.
ugh These rates begin for distances of
nile ten miles and less, and go from two
to fifty miles, breaks up to 450. The
B in minimum charge for class one is 13c,
reu- the maximum ;1.06. For class E the
ang minimum is 4c, the maximum 28c. An
ailes additional allowance of 8c for first- 9
i class, and 2c for class E, is made for a
that joint line hauls. Eastern Texas is a
rod, also shifting from the Texas classifi- t
Lich cation to the Western classification, h
len, which now governs shipments from
Shreveport into Texas. The petition- t
ers contended that the equalization of t
class rates of itself would not remove I
Bug the unjust discrimination, since the r
Texas classification is more liberal to t
ght- the shipper. The commission found t
nost this to be true and cites as an in
stance the minimum carload weights. t

LEO FRANK'S THROAT CUT
BY FELLOW PRISONER
Man Sent to Penitentiary for Life for
Slaying Mary Phagan Is Seri
ously Wounded.
Miledgeville, Ga.-Leo M. Frank,
whose death sentence for the killing
of Mary Phagan recently was com
muted to life imprisonment, was at
tacked by another prisoner at the
State Prison farm Saturday night and
seriously injured by being cut in the
throat. Prison authorities said the
attack on Frank was made by William
Creen, who is also serving a life sen
tence for homicide. Frank's recovery
is said to be doubtful. The attack on
Frank was made from behind, a
butcher knife being the weapon used.
Frank's jugular vein was cut. but
neither the spinal cord nor windpipe
were injured.
Creen said when taken from soli
tary confinement long enough to be
questioned that he planned the attack
alone. He was not communicative
and gave his only excuse that "he
thought it should be done." He said,
however, that he regretted his act.
Two physicians serving terms in
the prison treated Frank's wound un
til the arrival of the prison physician,
Dr. Guy Compton. Frank then was
removed to the prison hospital and
then the three physicians took twen
ty-five stitches in Frank's neck.
The cut extends from the front of
the neck around the left side to al
most the middle of the back of the
neck. Neither the windpipe nor the
spinal cord is hurt, but the jugular
vein is partly severed.
Creen was sentenced from Colum
bus for killing a man named Kitchen.
Saturday he was helping to kill hogs
with other prisoners. He concealed
in his clothing the knife he used in
the attack on Frank.
Frank is serving a life term for the
murder of Mary Phagan at Atlanta,
Ga., two Years ago.
.8wis Alarmed About Bird.
Geneva.-The Swiss papers report
that a beautiful bird, strange to Swlts
eriatid, which has appeared in limited
numbers in the Engadine, has caused
apprehension among superstitious
Swiss folk. It is traditionally be

nal political disturbances, in 1866,
when the country was afflicted with
pests, and lastly in 1870, during the
Franco-German war.

TAX RATE TO BE HIGHEST CI
IN THE HISTORY OF STATE
Ad Valorem Rate 30c on the $100
Valuation, 20c for Schools and TC
5c for Confederate Pensicr, s. V
Austin, Tex.--'he state automatic
tax board, according to figures just I
compiled by the state controller's de
artment, will fix the ad :dloreni rate
at 30c on the $100 valuation. Added A
to this will be 20c for schools and 5c C
for Confederate pensions, making a
total of 55c on the $100 valuation
for 1915-16. It will be the highest tax
rate ever levied in Texas.
The ad valorem rate for revenue
purposes has reached 25c during three rc
years, 1885, 1886 and 1887, but at that rai
time there was no Confederate pen- rep
sion tax and the school tax rate was tre
only 12.5c. From 1871 to 1880 the tax mE
rate for the states as a total was 50c s
for all purposes, but during the past at
twenty-seven years in only two in
stances has the ad valorem rate for tic
revenue purposes passed the 20c go
mark. These were in 1895, when the tdo
rate was 25c, and in 1913, when a 23c ha
rate was levied. It has dropped as of
low as 4c in 1910. th;
Tax rate for revenue purposes is int
based on an estimated 'ax valuation of St
the state of $2,739,459,589, or an in- de
crease of more than $27,000,000 over Ve
