Dr. Dumba refused to make any com ments on his position yesterday and de clined In fsct to see newpsper men. Any one who wished to see him talked with Prince Hohenlohe, and the Prln e explained there waa nothing lo be said. At noon the Doctor held an hour's con ference with fount vnn Bernslnrff, the Herman AmlMsaador, In his suite. This followed several hasty visits of Trince Hohenlohe tu the Count's suite In the Hlts-t'arlton Hotel. Thursday night the two Ambassadors dined together on the roof of the lllta. Count von Hernstorff also refused to talk about the aituation when seen after his conference at the Ht.

I On, Item in Dr. Dumha's due was an j aub mobile ride In Central Park A little before 4 O'clock he and Prince Hohenlohe left the hotel and entered a j waiting car. The Ambaaaador walked , with a stoop, like u man worn, head nnd shoulders thrown forward, deep set eyes appearing lo have sunk even deeper than usual. "No. no.

While In timea such aa these one mull make some allowances for the nervous strain engendered by the general un settled atate of affairs (which aeema to afflict alike all order of society) even (itch a deduction cannot bring one to any other conclusion than that the present Herman sentiment toward Amer ica la one of Indignation, manifested not so much In a feeling of anlmteilty toward the I'nlted Htatee aa In the de termination to adhere to the present Herman policy at whatever cot, and not to con ede a single point. And. again, to be juet one mut admit that this attitude doe not seem dictated lo much by atubbornneae aa by the feel ing of reaenttnent of which every Her man seems posseseed that England, the country's arch-enemy, should have ben hown o much greater leniency by the I'nlted Statea. Here, I think, one has the Oerman viewpoint. Time and again the American ui- point has been taken up and dla. uaaed In word and script, of especial Interest In this resiect was the article of Prof. Dr. Bollard Meyer, professor of, world history at the Berlin I'nlverslty, which appeared In the t'ossiecae T.rituna yesterday morning and which since then has been officially sanctioned. A trana lation of the article follows. The (.amp of Politic.

KiefT, on the right bank of the Dnieper, and tklessa. the big Kusaiau port on the Black Sea, are the main goals of the southern Austro-Her-man armies, according to to-day's re ports from the Kuaalan theatre of war In their effort to gain Ihe road for the former point the Teuton are furiously attacking Ih Russian defend ers. Home gain In thl direction waa made, according to to-day's official Auk trlan statement, by the forcing of the Russians over the Studel lowlands. A despatch from Petrograd announces that Kleff Is being partially evacuated, although It Is emphasised that this step Is merely a precautionary measure and thaw It would be "premature" to con alder the Kleff-Dnleper line endangered The removal of a number of Institution hss begun, however, with a view to fa cilitating military operations In case thu city should be seriously threatened. To the northwest of llovno, which forma one of the "corners" of the Vol hynlan fortress triangle, the Herman force which took Hrest-Lltovsk are pushing eastward toward the railroad ' point of Sarny, the capture of which ! would give them a start on the rallroud to KiefT. sbout Iff mile eastward i iw Ing to the marshy nature of this region, however, lighting Is extremely difll cult and the progress proportionally slow. Udrlls Drive More mm. oil More difficult by far then the expected drive on Kleff is the movement which Is predicted as the result of the concen tration of Austrian forces on the Ru manian frontier, presumably with ,i view to undertaking serioul opera tions against Bessarabia. A despatch from Petrograd quotes Russian Official! as foreshadowing such a move, with idessa as the ultimate objective. However, owing to the lack of adequate railroad facilities, the natural difficulty uf the territory, and the distance to be covered, military observers are sceptical as to sny immediate progress of these prospective operation They also point to the danger to the Austro-Herm in forces here, which Is represented b n possibility of Ihe eventual entry of Rumania into the war. In which even: the Rumanians would be expected to attack the Teutons from the south. M-anwhllr the Mghtlng In Oallcia continues with undiminished Ittlbbom. ness. Apparently the Austrc-Hcrm.ins have not vet recovered from the blow tbe Russians struck at them tlie da) the Cxar took tbe chief command of his armies.
