From the moment it became known
In Germany that Russia was mobiliz

but on the German frontier as well, the
whole control of German policy passed
into military hands. The Socialists

The Socialists were opposed to 'war. but

TtuKgla Is Rlaraed.
All that the public was told was
that Germany had been tricked by Rus

at the czar's request, the Russian gov

determined to attack Germany, there
was not a social Democrat in the conn

Against the Austrian ultimatum to Ser

"Scores of machine guns were turned
on us and we were ordered to pre

one man and with yell after yell

we neared their ranks we fired in

Cumbersome Field Tele
graph System in-War Is
Berlin. Germany. Sept 1. Bo far. at
least as the German army is concerned,
it is apparent that the old field tele
graph, which played such an import
ant part in previous wars, has been
entirely supplanted in thjs great Euro
pean war, by the wireless The labori
ous and lengthy process of laying wires
between distant points to establish
communication is now obsolete. Only
among established lines of comneunica
tlon will wires be used In this war for
telegraph and telephone service.
The field equipment of the German
army consists almost entirely of porta
ble wireless outfits. The great advan
tage of the wireless over the old wire
method Is that the enemy cannot cut
off any army's communications and if
a code be used the enemy cannot "tap"

In the warring countries other than
Germany, portable wireless equipments
have been used, but they are cumber

While the range is good the distance
to which messages can be sent has not
been an object of the construction, so
much as has been portability and ease
of erection. As regards the latter point
the equipment can be unloaded, set up
and at work within 15 minutes of
arrival. and can be taken down and
packed in even less time. As regards
portability, a short range outfit can be
carried by one horse, while a long
range'apparatus can be carried by four
horses also carrying a rider.
It has been recognized that in war
it might be necessary to carry one of
the outfits into a position where neith
er horses nor motors could pass. To
meet this contingency, the Germans
have devised a sort of bamboo sling in
which one of the largest sets in use can
be carried by eight men over the rough

assets is the wonderful enthusiasm of

enthusiastic over the war as the

siasm is not alone In Germany, bat is
