A resolution has been adopted at the conference of In dustrial leaders of Hcrmany and Aus tria, III session at Vienna, calling for an economic nlllnnce of the two countries. 1(1 the discussion it wan suggested that a preferential tariff system no ar.opted aa one of tho means to bring this about.

KXEMV'S ATTACK VIOLENT Special Cable flttpatch to Tmi Scv UiNPON, July 2. A despatch received to-day from Oon. Sir Inn Hamilton, commanding the Hrltlsh expeditionary foico at the Dardanelles, gives n further account of the fighting on June 29, which resulted In the repulse of a Turkish counter attack on the positions taken by the Hrltlsh on June 21, and a further advance by the French, rounding out the gains they had made on tho same day. The Turkish attack was opened with tho explosion of mines anil with heavy artillery tire, but In the bayonet lighting which fo'llowcd the Hrltlsh troops sue cerded III throwing hack the enemy. The French took the left centre of th "iiu.idrllateral," p.ttt of which they had captured on June 21. and then com pleted the victory by taking the trenches prolonging the quadrilateral to the south. Sir Ian ll.inillton's despatch follows: "On the afternoon of June 2 hostile columns moving west from a point north of Achl llah,) and south from Kllld Ilahr toward the Turkish right Indicated that the enemy was preparing a counter at tack against the position which we cap tured on June 24. During the evening two initio galleries on the flont of the right centre were blown In and the enemy subjected the ti cliches to tire. After n lull and another outburst of lire n determining sttnek was made against tho left of our position with the bayonet. The attack was repulsed with heavy losses to the enemy. "On the southern front the Turks made a concerted attack alone the coast. II. M. S. Wolverine got her searchlight and guns trained on the main body of the enemy and iluscd heavy loss.

The nppoarnnce of waitresses In London clubs, mentioned In a recent letter, Is not the only w.iy In which these Institutions have been . affected by the war. Tho rapid Increase in the prices of all provisions lm ! , . , , . ... caused wholesale changes in tho menus and the prices charged for meals In clubs where these things have been I stereotyped for many years. The London club has never looked to tho sale of provisions for maklns a profit; In fact, the rood Is generally sold nt a loss. Hut with the Inrrease In the price of nil provisions, that loss became so substantial that clulw could no, longer face It. There were, of course. many contributory causes which havo seriously affected the llunnclal position of practically nil Iximlon clubs. ln the first place a great number of the younger members are either at the front or training In camps .Many members beyond military ago are also out of London working In some ca pacity or other for the armies. Then I again, or the members who are left there arc many who are feeling "the pinch," nnd consequently nre spending much less money. In many clubs, too. all member', who nre wearing the Klng' uniform have been placed on half sub scription. Clubs Pinched l w Itulr. A very serious loss to the revenue of clubs Is caused by the "10 o'clock clos ing" rule. This does not mean, of course, that the clubs have to close at 10, but. according to the law, they In common with public houses and restnu rnnts have to stop selling all alcoholic liquors at that hour. The otscrvanco of this law In clubs may perhaps be a utile less rigorous here and theie than it i, n ordinary licensed houses, hut still the law has to be observed, ami the loss Is perhaps the most serious one the clubs have to face. Tho Increase In the price of provisions Is, of course, felt In every .ery house througn ' the length and breadth of the country The price of meat In particular has gone up enormously. Fat bullocks are now elllng at 2.1,". and more per hea.l which Is double the prlre they fetchel tpn years ago.

Then again, the (lovernment is will ing to pay such a high price for beef and mutton, and must have such enor- mous quantities for the troops at the front nnd the troop In training nt home. that the general demand outside that of the (lovernment Is much too great for tho supply. Hundred of thousands of men who are now In Kitchener's armies did not ent much meat before the war because they could not afford It ; there must be 1,000,000 men now eating meat pro vliled by the Government, regularly and In large quantities, who before they en listed ate only a little each week. On the amumptlon that there are 2,000,000 men In training In this country (and no estimate puts the figure so low), that alone means that the Ouvernmcnt his lo supply 2,000.000 pounds of fresh meat every day To meet the difficulty ln some way the suggestion has been made that the Gov eminent should prohibit the slaughter of isinn nno calve. Thl was done In Germany months ago.

For the first time In several months the name of the Ger man Crown Prince Is mentioned In the ottlclnl report of the German headquar ters staff. The report tells of a battle In the Argcnne, where the German forces were led by the Kaiser's eldest son.
