RUSSIANS DRIVEN

Constantinople Insists Ad?
vance Into Persia Is
Progressing.
CZAR'S FORCES GAIN,
PETROGRAD REPORTS
Ottomans Adrnit Quick Retreat
Before British Forces
East of Suez.
London, Aug. 12. Russian force* in
the Mush-Biths district of Turkish
Armenia have been driven bark further
by the Turks and tbe Turkish advance
into Persia also is making progress,
Constantinople asserts. Petrograd says
obstinate fighting continues north of
Bitlis and that the Turks are rctreat
ing into the region of Bokana, Persia.
"On the Caucasian front, west of
; Giumiachan, the Turks several times
> resumed the offensive, being repelled
1 on each occasion by our fire," says the
Russian statement. "Cartridges with
I tiled points were found in possession of
! captured Askaris. According to their
] : tatements, the commander of their
regiment issued an order six weeks ago
' that every Askari was to prepare 100
such cartridges. For this purpose *pe
cial tiles were distributed.
"North of Bitlis obstinate tighting
continues. In Persia, in the region of
Bokana. our troops are pur>uing the
Turks, who are retreating hurriedly to
Sakkiz."
The Turkish War Office statement
says:
"The Russian force which, owing to
bad roads and the difficulties created
for us by the weather, Bstabliahed itself
on the Bitlis-Mush line, has been com?
pelled gradually to retreat, leaving
guns, rifles and prisoners in our hands.
The Russian retreat was caused by our
h.-avy attacks and the pressure of our
ripht winp on the stecp Chasn height*.
Fortified Mountains Taken.
"The mountains south of Bitlis,
which the enemy fortified strongly and
defended obstinately, were captured.
On the night of August 7 we occupied
Bitlia, and on the morning of August 8
Mush was taken. Our advance con?
tinue* toward the passcs north of
B.tlis.
"We took the offensive against posi?
tions of the enemy in the vicinity of
Ogr.ott and Hill fshcliguel, two kilo
metres east of Ognott, aj well as enemy
positions west of Ognott on a front of
eight kilometres, where we captured
140 Russians.
"In Persia our troops are continuing
the pursuit of the enemy in the vicinity
of Hamadan. The enemy made ener
getic attempt* to defend himself in the
passes east of Sakna, but was foreed
to retreat toward Kanlaver, leaving in
our hands a number of prisoners, two
munitions cars, teams for eight guns
and a great quantity of other war
material. A howitzer was destroyed
bv the fire of our artillery.
'"In Egypt there have been no further
important events in the region of
Katia."
British Regiment Wiped Out.
A later ofticial statement announces
thp occupation on August B of Kighli.
"On the Egvptian front," says the
announcement,""a British eavalry regi?
ment, according to statements of
prisoners taken at Katia, was almost
entirely wiped out, all its oflicera be?
ing killed."
The admission is made in a telegram
received here to-day from Constanti?
nople that the Turks were compelled
to fall baek after the recent battles
with the British east of the Suez
Canal.
"Turkish forces which advanced lor
reconnaissance made attacks on
strongly consolidated positions of the
enemv." the dispatch says. "They
ocrupied the first line trenches and
toward evening reached the barbed
wire obstacles of the enemy's main
position.
"Meanwhile a pigantic sandstorm
came up and impeded our left wing,
pic-v.nting proaeention of the recon?
naissance of this area. The enemy,
a--J-ted bv detachments of troops with
camels and by reinforcements drawn
from the direction of El Vintara and
Duidar, took advantage of this situa?
tion. He made a surprise attack on
^the rear of our left wing part of
which, after long fighting, fell into his
hand*. We left in the position some
machine guns which we had rendered
p unusable.
Turkish Forcea Withdrawn.
"Owing to this ineident we with
:drew our troops in the direction of
Katia On August 5 the enemy. with

Tho Kmperor's visit. was known to

ohviously ovrrjoyod that tho Kmporor
eould find timo to come to them.
The visit, in addition, surprised a
small group of correspondent" who had
just returned from an inspection of
the advanced positions, and who hnd
an opportunity to see the Kmperor at
Novo Georgiovsk, a few miles north?
west of Warsaw, almost precisely a
year ago.

Pespite the heavy fog that usually

Upon a broad level plain, flankod by a

The uniforms were of field gray, but
the attire of officers and men was,
novertheloss, so far as possible, gal..

Thc Radicals and Socialists, who are
in the majority in the lower house,

however, tht Conservative and Left

Mueh of the opposition to confirma

SENATE CAUCUS
AGREES ON TAXES
Democrats Accept Income
Levies Set by Finance
Committee.
DEFERS DECISION
ON MUNITIONS
Will Act To-day?Bill Probably
Will Be Taken Up for
Vote This Week.
Washington, Aug. li. Revision of
the income, inheritance stamp and I
theatre gcctions of the House revenue ,
| bill, as recommended by the majority
| of tho Finance Committee, was approved
' to-night by the Demoeratic Senate cau
| cus after many hours of debate. The
I proposed normal tax on incomes is left j
I at I per cent, where thc House had
j fixod it, the exemption to be $4,000 ,
! for persons with families and $3,000
i for single persons, as in tho present
I law.. The rate of taxation under ex
I isting law is 1 per cent.
In addition to tho normal tax addi
! tional taxes on large incomes will b-.* 1
I levied, as follows.
One per cent upon the amount by
! which t*bo total net income exceeds
' $20,000 and does not exceed $40,000, 2
i per cent on $40,000 to $60,000, 3 per
! cent on $60,000 io $80,000. 4 per cent
1 on $80,000 to $100,000, 5 per cent on
$100,000 to $1.-0,000, 9 per cent on $300,
' 000 to $500,000, 10 per cent on $500,000
I to $2,000,000, and 13 per cent on the
amount by which the total net income
j exceeds $2,000,000.
Taxes Fixed on Estatea.
Upon the transfer of inhcritances
th. following taxes would be levied:
One per cent of the amount of es
Utas valued at not to exceed $50,000, 2
per cent on estates exceeding $50,000
j ar.d not exceeding $150,000, 3 per cent,
on $150,000 to $250,000, 4 per cent on
$260,000 to $450,000, 5 per cent on j
$.50,000 to $1,000,000, 6 per cent on
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000, 7 per cent on
;-2,000,000 to $.'.000,000. H per cent on
$.,000,000 to $4,000,000, 9 per cent on;
?4,C00,000 to $..,000,000 and 10 per cent |
1 on estates exceeding $5,000,000 in value.
The only increase in the proposed in?
come taxes over the House rates is
from 10 to 13 per cent on incomes ia .
: excess of $2,000,000. The rates from 6
. to 10 per cent on estates also are addi
; tions to the rates proposed in the
' House bill.
Further Changes Inlikety.
The rates were approved after
heated debate, in which some Senators
proposed to make still higher rates
and others sought to haev the proposed
taxes on incomes and inheritances re
' duced. While there is opportunity, as
long as the caucus has the bill under
eoaaidcratiOB. to revise the list, Ad?
ministration leaders said to-night that
no further changes were likely, and
that the bill would go to the Senate
next week with these sections as they
were ratified to-night.
So gnxious are the Demoeratic lead?
ers to complete revision of the bill in
' time for reporting to the Senate by
Tuesday, that the caucus was held in
session until a late hour to-night, and
will continue to-morrow. A Sundav
caucus has not been held in many
years.
At to-night's session decision on the
'. munitions tax was deferred until to
morrow's session, and the caucus quick
ly approved recommen.lat'.otis of the
committee restoring some of the stamp
taxes of existing Iaa* an.l substituting
existing law for the proposed theatre
and moving pieture house taxes.
Stamp Taxca Restored.
Stamp taxes, which the House ig- l
nored altogether, were restored as
follows: J
Uonds, debentures and certificates of
| indebtedness, 5 cer.ts on each $100; ex- j
press and freight receipts, 1 cent each;
telegraph and telephone messages, 1
cent for each BUSSSSj. fSf which a
charge of 15 cents or more is made;
custom house receipts, not ex.e_.diBg
$100 in value, 25 cents; not exceeding
$500. 50 cents; exctcling $500, $1; in
surance politics, one-half of 1 cent on
laeh dollar or fractional part of the
amount of premiums charged; foreign
steamship tickets, $1 on tickets costing
not more than $30, not exceeding $60,
$3; more than $60, $5; tickets costing
$10 or less, exempt; Pullman seats and
berths, 2 cents each il cent in existing
law i.
The House bill provided for taxes or.
theatres and amusement places based
on population of towns and cities, but
