To Cut Off Retreating Army;

Teutons, Attacking
From Carnic Alps,
Threaten to
Turn Line
Retreat Goes On
In Good Order
Cadorna's Cavalry
Hampers Advance
of the Austro
Germans
LONDON, Oct. .10. The Italians art
I in complete but orderly retreat toward
I their second defensive .-ystem b?hind
! the Tagliamento River, from tlie Carnic
: Alp t<> the sea. Udine, former liead
i qaartera <>f Cadorna's army in Eaatern
I Vcnetia, has been occupied by the
Austro-C.ermnns. The entire Isonzo
line has been abandotnrd by the Ital
iane, following the destruction of all
bridges.
Along the whole bc'.'le fron' (u
. darna'l cavalry unit * are Icrping m
i touch arith the enemy und retardirig
his advance. All indications nou- point
to the successful retirement of tiie
Italian armies behind t!ic Tagiiumento
I line, which has been powerfully forti
I fttd for yeara past for just such an
, emergency as now confront.s the Ital
'? ian1--.
The graattat metiace to the Italr-in
' army BOW lies in the flankir.g nio-.e
j ment, aiready begun by the invader*.
I from the Carnic Alps, aimed at the ;
? turning of the Upper Tagliamento line j
b.r'ore Cadorna tirmly e_tabli?he_ hin-- ;
i .eli* behind the river. Austro-German j
1 advanced unlts are now preasing
| against *he northern reaches of the
i itrtam. after debouch.ng from the
l jr.ountain region north of Flitoh and
i Tolmino.
Complete Diaaster Poesiblc
If tbay should be able to effect a
'rrossing and tranjport strong forces to
j t'.-.e wes'trn bank before the Italians
take up their position along the lower,
I part of the river it is very probable the
j whole Italian flank ?ould bc turned and
1 complete disaster threaten the country.
Such a po-.sibility is st.ll vry remote,
however, aml most military observT.-,
look for an orderly retirement by Ca?
dorna to his well prepared lines behind1
tbe i iver.
One othe' danger, still further re?
moved, confronts the Italiar.s in their
retreati'ig movement to the Tirglia
rnotitn line, and that is the possihility
of a ?troi:g r'nemy movement from the
Trentino.
A Teuton army rutthg down aeroii
j ;i'e frontier from this diatriet would he
driving against the rear of the Italian
? lines, the Trentino being to the r.orth
( v.est of the present tield of baftle. It
1 might aUo conceivably close the
; Franeo-Italian border and prevent the
? rending of supplfes to Cadorna. So far.
hower'er, there have been no signs of
coming aetivity hy the enemy on this
I front.
A great dral depends n?w upon the
; -'and the Id and Ud Italian armies
i are able to make on the Plains of
Kriuli. In tbii *hey will be greatly
' aided by the Friti'h batteries, whirh
' have been in ac'ion along the Isonzo
il ea laat Maj and a1! of which are re?
ported to have been saved.
Th<* most di-tre--'ing need of Ca?
dorna'* troop--. at the moment is guns
and ammaaiiian arith which ta ataveai
ihe enemy <roni pre-sng 100 danger
eaaly close to the retreating armiefl
before tbay r?ach the safety o I'the new
' line. Reafizing this, fran'Jc efTortu are
being made by France and Hritain to
: supply their ally ?"?ith munitions before
it becomes too la*e.
D.'-pi'e tha cruahinpt blows delivered
by von Relow'a forces alone tba
.liilian front, there la every -ndication
'hat the bulk of Cadorna's army has
been drawn out of the trap. and, with

arTect the tinal issue of the war. If
the Italians hold anywhere, the situa?
tion will remain practically the sam
si it hflfl been, except *o far a? the .
noral advantage of a feat of arms
will benflfit Germany. The v.ar will j
be fought out on the West front. and
all Italy needs to do 13 to keep buay
hflf share of German and Au.trian '
troops.
V. S. Will Rush Aid
It is utderstood here that this gov- 1
ernment will join thc Allies in sending
whatever aid ia practictible to Italy.
This assistar.ee must be of two kinds
immediate militarv BflflifltaaCO, espe?
cially big guns and munition.^, to be
rushed to thc Tagliamento front bc- 1
fore Germet.y can drive Cadorna fro-.i
that position, and economic aid. to sus
tain the morale of the Italian people,
??pocially in case thc Austro-G. rman
forces suceeed in driving fnrther be?
yond the Tagliamento. This country
made Itfl I". rst cot.tt lbution of that ^ort
a few day? ago, when it supp.ied Italv
with iUO.0.0 tons of shipping. The
aim o*" that cor.tributiut: w;.s to BB*
eouraga the Itaiiai. people to sustain
the si.ock of tre Maekon?'er drive,
which wa? then seen to be coming.
In Italian quarters il is said that
Cadoraa car. hold hifl po?ition on the
Tagliamento [f nBfl and shells reach
him iti time. Ihe Ita'ian anny ha?
all along boCB ihort of big gun*.
Italy Indu.trially Weak
Italy is not a strong country indus
trifllly, and tha shortage of sliipping
has prevented her from being ade
quately lupplied either with steel and
coal 'or the manufact".rc of munitions
or with munitloni thomflelrofl. The
d -pate'n. * show tha' the Teutons
captured ? Ur?e number of ItnliHti
guns tn the Ani OBflOt, and great doubt
is felt aboat ihe prju.pniert of
1 adorna's army if hfl IBCCflfldl in re
forminf: it on 'he Tagiiament... ft is.
supposeii tha* guns and >hclis ar* be?
ing rushed from France to Italy, ifl thfl
hope of puttiag 1 fldomfl into f*tr posi?
tion 'o h'..d thfl Tagliamento line.
Whether thii can lie dor.e m time de
pendl upon the condition of the Italian
troope when they rOOeh the rev line of
defence and upon how quickly Macken?

Must Maintain Morale
The great problem of this government
to meet, inatoad ?f the tthor Alliea, ii
that of B-flintaining the morala at the
Itairati people .,f revers.*^ mora IflrioOl
than iho^o already mei folloa :u the

The problem. like that in Ruiflia,will
be ec.-Miomie rather than military. Italv
has beprin tO '?? eary of the war. not
from los> of Blflfl pow-r. ; ke France,
but from tiie severe economic itraifl
to which she has hern lobiectod. She
has r-uffered sever'v fron laek of coal
and food. Ar.d if she is to be held to
the taah flf purel', defensive lighting
upon some Im. . either the one to which
she has fallen back or another, there
will be another demand for shipping

And the best that is exnected of
