The Rrltlsh Ambas sador nt Petrogrnd, In the course of a message on the anniversary nf the out break of the war. refers to the assertion of German newspaper that Germany's original objective was the destruction of the Russlnn army. "That army Is still Intact." says the Rrltlsh dlplumrit. "Like Charles the Twelfth nt Poltava nnd Napoleon at Mosoow, the German Ilinperor will learn thnt Russln Is unconquerable.

"I offer to the brave soldiers nf Rus sia my homage and express to them my heaitfelt admiration." ANSWERS RUSSIAN SLUR. Special Cable lie'palcli tn Tnr. 8rv. London, July 31 (Saturday). Col. Heplngton, the military critic of the TIiiim, In dlncusslng the retirement of the Russians from the Vistula to the Rug says that although t hns the ap pearance of aligning the central and southern armies It will In iffeut place the latter In some dirtlrulty owing to thn marshes whlih will Intervene between the two armies. "This district," lie continues, "Is not Impassable. i s spanned by some roads and rnllways, but It certainly Interfeies very much with the Intercommunication and Joint operation. The manner In which this situation will be exploited n mains to 1m seen. "It's natural," he goes on. "that our Russlnn friends should nsk what the w'stnrn Allies are doing at this crltlcil moment. The answer Is we ure holding up 2,000,000 Genn.i'N on our front, l (ildes hammering the TuiK.-t, t ti nt. keep. Ing the strain off Itiit.nl i In the Cau casus, It would not ny Russia were we to seek inUentures and tmnilt Indls. cretloiiM, "The worst thing for Russln th.it could happen In the west would be that the J'rtnch, Rrltlah and Relglnns should be unable to continue the pressure which still keeps the bulk of the best Herman troops off the back of Russia. (Jcrmany has lately drawn forward all her new troops and staked her maximum, our duty Is to fight on resolutely and coolly. We count on Russia nnd Russia can count on us. We look confidently to the end." The Time says editorially: "It would bo foolish to belittle the gravity of the threatened loss of War saw and the Vistula. It Is full of warn ing to the western Allies and means that for a long time to come Russia may be unable to resume a vigorous offensive; that when Russia mflves forward again she tnuit first reconquer her own lost province, and that she la further off than ever from nn Invasion of Germany. Vet we may well draw fresh courage, con templating the calm and spirited resolu tion of the Russian people. They are unmoved by the menace to Warsaw, Just as a century ngo their ancestors were unmoved by the toss of Moscow, They know, ns we know, that the Allies can hold out longer than their adversaries. The withdrawal to them Is only a post ponement. They yield to conquer. ".Meanwhile It Is plain that henceforth the hurden of destroying the Oerman menace will rest upon our shoulders to a far greater degree. There la nothing to be done now but to strain every nerve and prepare for further battle ns It has never yet been prepared. There Is one step Immediately open to us which would counteract In advance the moral effect of the threatened fall of Warsaw nnd deprive the Kaiser of half the glory of the public" entry he to eagerly awalta and hearten our allies as they have never yet been heartened. "If the Rrltlsh Oovernment would nt once adopt the declaration making every man of military age on these Island llabte to military service, ns the Gov ernment might direct, the moral effect of the Herman successes In Russia would he gone. Such a step would resolve the Inst lingering d ubls In the minds of our allies and would strike alike a knell UHn tho mind and heart Of Germany. It would cheer our gallant troops nt the front and make them feel that the period of hesitation Is at an end." HIGH JINKS IN WARSAW.

Though the prohibition of the sate of alcohol throughout the empire extends to I'oland there has been plenty of champagne obtainable at the rounds of soirees. "The young Russian otllcers are very hllthe as they ride through the streets with women In the costumes of nurse', who are licre to quicken ths convate. cence of young gentlemen In the uni form of the Czar. The Grand t)uki Nicholas dliected a considerable num. btr of there nurses being cleared out of Wirsw and also ordered all women who were not In Warsaw last July to leave.

THREE PMSOXEHS TAKEN Less than twelve hour after Charles Becker paid with hla life for the Rosen thal murder Lieut. Honest Dan Cost! gnn nnd his gambling sqund the so railed successor to Becker' strong arm men raided the Flower nnd Feather f o clal Benefit Club, Inc.. at 1T4 Sixth nve r.u. nnd arrested, among others. Jacob Luban, the president, whose brother. Morris, was an Important wltnes for the State against Becker. The "club" was raided with axes, lad der and crowbar yesterday afternoon a a gambling house. Dollar John Lnnger, once the close friend of Rosen thal In the Tenderloin gambling fra ternity, was said to be the club' financial backer. More than the ordinary significance of a spectacular daylight raid attache to the Incident, because only on Thursday Luban complained to District Attorney Perkins of police "persecution" nnd sought protection for his place as a straight social club. Furthermore, It Is believed that the police refrained from raiding the place so long, although It character was known to every policeman on post, be cause of Luban' alleged protection from the State a a Becker figure and the fear that If the "club" wn attneked before Hecker' death the raid would be latd to the pollco "stem." That fear was removed yesterday. The order to raid th place came direct from acting Police Commissioner Godley. Apparently Luban and his associate felt entirely secure fiom attack, for when Costlgan and hla men forced their way through the Ice box doors and front and rear windows sixty-five persona were enjoying the club' privileges. No warrants were Issued before the raid. Costigun said he went In merely on general Information. Am soon a he got Inside, however, the lieutenant sin gled out Luban In the crowd that bncked against the wall and arrested him. "So you're the man who saya tho po lice are protecting him, eh?" said Cos tlgan to Lubnn. "No. No. It's a lie. I didn't." pro testrd Luban. "I swear before nil these men here, I didn't," The sixty-five members of the Flower and Feathr Social Benefit Club. Inc., were lined up. Thre of them, Lub.'n, whose home Is nt 131 Fas'.
