tetention fin office of Premier SalaIn
drta Takeni as Indication that, War
'will soon be Declared.
London, May 10.-Tlhe King of Italy
has refused to accept the resignation
of Signor Salandra and the premier
and whole war Cabinet retain oflice.
This, it is confidently believed here,
foreshadows the almost immediate
entrance of Italy into the circle of
belligerents on the side of the allies.
Action, however, may be delayed tin
til the meeting of the Chamber of
Deputies on Thursday, when the pre
mier will announce his policy and will
receive the support of a majority of
Should the expected action of Italy
materialize the allies will be in a bet
ter position than ever to launch their
big offensive movement against Ais
tria and Germany, which is being pre
ceded on the western front by a se
ries of attacks, furnishing a foretaste
of what is to come.
Scarcely had the German attacks on
the British lines around Ypres ex
hausted themselves and the French
offensive north of Arras show signs
of coming to an end that the British
became the aggressors north of 141
Bassee and the French and Belgian
troops began their attempt to throw
the Germans back from the Yser
These attacks, according to the
French official account, which, how
ever, does not agree with that from
Berlin, were successful and again
compelled the Germans to counter-at
tack-the most costly of all opera
tions in siege warfare. Fighting at
both points continues today and in
Arlois, where the French added a
further slight gain to those made dur
ing the week, and which combined
constitute the biggest forward move
ment of either army in the west since
the battle of the Marne.
Fighting also is in progress in the
Woevre, particularly west of the for
est of Le Pretre, which the French
also won during the past week.
There does not appear to be much
change in the situation in Galicia, al
though the Austro-German armies
have been able to make an additional
slight advance by the withdrawal of
the Russia rear guards, wvhich have
been holding off the victorious troops
until their own armies could get Jnto
new positions behind the San River,
This territory promises to be the
scene of another big battle for the
Russians, strongly reinforced, will
make a desperate effort to stem thc
tide which has been running sc
strongly against them.
In the Russian border ifroviices
later engagements are occurring inl
which both sides claim to have thc
Birds of a Feather.
