The Nish-Salonikl Railroad line in the section south of Strumitsa fol lows closely the course of the Vardar fRiver, and the reported Bulgarian l' victory may indicate that the cutting of the railway at the new point not far north of the Greek border is either Ian accomplished fact or is imminent.

I nr VAKIJAK LONDON PRESS SCORES POLICY WITH GREECE Great Britain's Offer of Cy prus Regarded As Bad Diplomacy. London, Oct. 22, 4:39 a- m. Great Britain's reported offer to cede lie Island of Cyprus to Greece to induce the latter country to join the entente allies, is opposed by the Morning Post which editorially characterizes sthe offer as bad diplomacy. ' '.'Cyprus is a very nice island with fertile soil, a peaceful population, a satisfactory revenue and a flourish ing trade," says the Post. "Now wo propose to give it away in order to bribe Greece to fulfill her plain obliga tions. "We do not like the transac tion. It is bad precedent and might well encourage other countries to ask a price for their neutrality or support- When the British empire is re duced to selling part of itself for the military support of Greece, things might be considered as in a bad way. "Our strength in the Balkans seems to have been nerveless, Incompetent hands. Meanwhile Serbia struggles desperately against gret odds and the chances of saving her. grow more remote. The desperate position in the Balkans is not the result of mere mistakes but of inability to stand by our friends or to stand up to our enemies. There is a field here f of courageous strategy and able diplo macy, but If strategy takes the form of driblets and diplomacy the shape of gifts, ,our natural advantages and superior resources will not suffice." The Evening Standard says: "Our policy would be far" stronger if we ceased to reckon upon the in tervention of Greece t all. This newspaper asserts the quad ruple entente has failed to recognize tho significance of the second dis missal of Premier Venizelos, and interprets it as demonstrating tho deliberate decision of King Constan tine not to side with the allies. "The king doubtless has reckoned with Greek public opinion," the Standard continues, "and so far there are no signs that the royal policy is sufficiently unpopular to necessitate its abandonment. The only way In which the allies can induce Greece to comply with her treaty obligations Is by pressure.- If Greek intervention is necessary for us we must make Greece reaiize the unpleasant consequences of 1,1 .wvm.4 f Our command of ui ca l v uica&iiiK. ithe Mediterranean gives us a power ful weapon, and weapons are made to be used." THREE REASONS FOR ATTACK ON SERBIA Kaiser After Junction With Turkey, Mussulman's Imagination and German Army's Prestige. Paris, Oct. 22, 4:55 a. m. The Petit Journal today publishes an In terview with Dr. M. R. Vesnitch, Ser bian1 minister to France, in which the urinister is quoted as saying that Em- peror William desires to effect three things by an attack on Serbia. These things are: First, a junction with Turkey in oTder to recruit soldiers from Asia Minor; next, to impress strongly the imagination of the Mussulmans, and lastly to restore the German army's prestige, lowered by the failure on the eastern and western war fronts. The expedition of the entente allies, the minister says, not only will succor Serbia but will settle the five hundred year old eastern question. SF.K VICTORY FOR BOTHA. Ills Followers In Union of Siitli Africa Assured Majority In House. Cape Town, Union of South -Africa, Oct. 22, Via. London, 10:55 a. m. The followers of the Premier, General IjouIs Botha and the unionists who are supporting the premier are as sured a safe majority in the house of assembly of the Union of South Africa. The nationalists, who opposed the military operations against German Southwest Africa and are attempting to defeat the plan to dispatch a con tingent of the Union forces to Europe, thus far have obtained only twenty one seats, mostly in the Free State. SERBIANS ARE FAR FROM DISCOURAGED Despite Odds Against Which Tbey Are Desperately Fighting DECLARE ALLIED OFFICERS Would Not Advise a Bet of Ten Cents That Serbia Will Be Crushed Sofia Denies Entente Forces Have Cap tured Strumitsa. Salonikl, Greece, Oct. 20, via Paris, Oct. 22, 9:55 a. m. Officers of the French and British expeditionary force in the Balkans who returned to day to Salonikl from the Serbian front assert that, notwithstanding the odds against which they are fighting, the Serbians are not discouraged. "I would not advise you to bet ten cents that Serbia will be crushed," said one of these officers. "Last Thursday we were north of Ralia, in the sector where the Austrians and Germans are making their principal attack. It took them nine days to gain eight miles on that front. Serbian Line Unbroken. "We saw long lines of Prussian and Austrian prisoners going to the rear. The Serbian line is absolutely unbrok en. The Serbians are fighting every Inch of the way. "Only five cannon of the allies and eight of the Serbians were lost around Belgrade, notwithstanding German re ports. Seven of those cannon were destroyed before the city was cap tured. Bulgarians Occupy Pirot. "The Bulgarians occupy Pirot, on the route to Nish. They hope to effect a Junction with the Germans. At the present rate of progress it will be next year before this can be done. "We left Nish on Sunday. At that time the only interruption to railroad traffio was that occasioned by the raids on the railroad Were repulsed prompt ly. No Bulgarians were near the rail way around Kumanovo. (Since that time the Serbian war office has ac knowledged that the Bulgarians have cut the Saloniki-Nish railroad in two places.) "The loss of Istip has not even been threatened, but that point Is of no military Importance. Marched Forward Singing. "The Serbian, troops who were de spatched to the eastern front to face the Bulgarians marched forward sing ing, being overjoyed at the chance to come to grips with their ancient ene my and confident of the outcome. "Throughout Serbia there is a con spicuous sentiment of gratitude to America, on account of the assistance extended by the medical commissions which are believed to have saved the people from annihilation by the ty phus epidemic." Warning Against Rumors. The French general staff has issued a warning against rumors "either of bloody defeats or of brilliant victor ies." It points out that in many in stances the same names are given to various localities. An instance of the confusion resulting from this fact is the widespread report that the allied troops had captured the city of Strum itsa, in southern Bulgaria whereas in fact the skirmish occurred at Strum itsa Station, far to the west of the city. Strumitsa Not Captured. Amsterdam, Oct. 22, via London, 10:58 a. m. A telegram received here from Sofia by way of Berlin makes a categorical denial of the report that the Bulgarian city of Strumitsa has been captured by Anglo-French troops. The message stated that encounters which took place with a few Bulgar ian detachments the French and Brit ish were defeated and were unable to make any advance toward the Bulgar ian frontier. THREE BRITISH SHIPS SUNK. Detained at Hamburg by Germans Since Outbreak of War. London, Oct. 22, 12:50 p. m. "The British steamers City of Berlin, Auk and Iris, which were detained at Hum burg at the outbreak of the war, have been sunk by the enemy." This statement from Lloyds is all that the censor will permit to be pub lished at present. TO SETTLE COTTON CASES. Washington, Oct. 22.

WILL RAZE VILLAGES IN LINE OF RETREAT Germans Tell Inhabitants of Mitau, Courland of Plan If They Fail In Attack on Riga. London, Oct. 22. 11:37 a. m. The following despatch was received here today from Reuter's Petrograd bu reau: "The Germans have informed the inhabitants of Mitau, Courland, that if they are unsuccessful in their attack on Riga and are compelled to retire they will raze all villages in the line of retreat. "German reinforcements which have been sent to the Riga district include Landsturm called out in Sep tember, who have received little train ing. "A German officer captured by the Russians at Ciartorisk, in the Pripet region, spoke disparangingly of the Austrian troops" NO REPORT HERE ON BRITISH NURSE'S CASE Execution of Miss Cavall By Germans Closed from U. S. Standpoint. Washington, Oct. 22 Secretary Lansing had no report today 11 from Ambassador Page or Minister Whit lock on the execution of Miss Edith Cavell, the British nurse, by German military authorities at Brussels. As communication is carried on directly between American legations abroad, concerning prisoners and for eign subjects under their care, offi cials do not regard the lengthy pub lished correspondence between Mr. Page and Mr. Whitlock without ref erence to the state department as unusual. So far as the Washington govern ment is concerned, the case appears clcsed, every diplomatic effort ap parently having been exhausted pre vious to the execution. I. C. C. ENGINEERS VALUING RAILROAD Will Work Here, Ten Days In Interest of the Government- Have Private Coaches.

Two other corps of engineers besides the men here are . engaged in the work. The work Involves an Inventory of trackage and road equipment not in cluding rolling stock.

DISCHARGED FROM PRISON Swoboda, However, Detained in Paris Pending Settlement of Question of Nationality. Paris, Oct. 22, 5:45 a. m. Raymond Swoboda has been discharged from prison, the charge of espionage on which he was held having been dropped recently. He has been de tained by the prefecture, however, pending the settlement of the question of his nationality.
