QHICAGO, Aug. 8. If the
present rate of increase of
divorces over marriages con
tinues Chicago by 1950 will be a
city of wrecked homes, according
to William F. McDermott of Chi
cago. "Last year," said Mr. Mc
Dermott, "there were 37,583
marriages and between 5,000
and 6,000 divorces. This shows
an increase of 20 per cent, since
1911. Three decades more will
see the number of divorces equal
ling the number of marriages.
"A study of the fundamental
trouble shows that of 3,577 suits
filed in 1914 only seventy owned
their homes. In 2,171 esses
there were no children.

growth of the apartment habit
and the tendency toward ease,

TARSAW, Aug. 8. Premier Wftos in a statement to the Polish
newspapers to-day said the Government would remain in War
saw indefinitely. The Premier said that representatives of foreign
Governments desiring to remain did so on their own responsibility.
Bolshevik aviators flying over the Polish lines have scattered
broadcast propaganda pamphlets signed by Felix Dziersman, presi
dent of the revolutionary committee in Poland, saying:
"Make your officers prisoners and let us jointly march on War
saw." The Poles are urged to wipe out the aristocracy and make Poland
a great communist country. .The pamphlets declare that the Bolshe
viki are marching on Warsaw with the best of motives to save the
country from the landowners' rule.
The Reds are gradually creeping up on Warsaw. They are re
ported now to be only 60 kilometers (40 miles) away and preparing
for a quick sweep onward.
It is announced that Cardinal Rattiv, Papal Nuncio at Warsaw,
will remain in Warsaw if the capital falls into the hands of the Bol
sheviki. The newspapers criticise the Poles who are leaving the city,
declaring they should not be allowed to return.

London, Aug. 8. The announcement
that the White Star liner Baltic, on
which Archbishop Mannlx sailed from
New York, will not arrive at Liverpool
until to-morrow evening, when she
should have docked this morning, lends
color to the suspicion that the fiery pre
late has been landed at somo port on
the English or Welsh coast.
The Government's Interest in the
Archbishop Is shown by the fact that
the Baltic was convoyed by destroyers
and a radiogram received at Queens
town from the Archbishop's secretary,
Father Vaughan, states : "The Com
mander In Chief in Ireland cabled this
morning from the Home Affairs Office
forbidding the Archbishop's landing in
Ireland, and In case of his landing
threatens his removal by military au
thorities." The London press Is beginning to
treat the case humorously, one news

Ba-xwx. Aug. 7 (delayed). The ex
istence of a military convention be
tween France and Hungary Is assumed
In Vienna to be unquestionable. It re
reported to have been signed on June
27 at Codollo in Regent Horthy'a resi
dence and obliges Hungary to raise an
army of 140.000 to take part ln the
war against Russia.
It has been reported there that both
Rumania and Hungary would join in
the war against Russia, but those who
are acquainted with Hungary's ambi
tion to regain the Important railroad
centres ceded to Rumania by the peace
of Neuilly are doubtful of the En
tente's ability to satisfy both Govern
ments. The fact that Hungary has a strong
army gives rise to great anxiety both
in Austria and Czecho-SIovakla It is
feared here that Hungarians will march
to Vienna, overthrow the democracy and
proclaim a new dual monarchy. The
Ciecho-Slovaks anticipate an att'.mpt to
annex parts of Slovakia. All official
press bureaus are coloring despatches
so that it Is difficult to obtain a clear
picture of the actual situation.
The Hungarian press agency charges
that Bolshevist propaganda has been
successful In Slovakia, but the Czechs
say the accusation Is a pretext of Hun
gary to Invade and occupy the rrovlnce.
Reports from Czecho-SIovakla Indicate
a troublesome mood among elements of
the population. A general strike has
been proclaimed already in parts of Bo
hemia because of certain military re
strictions and there has been plundering

as follows :
"Either we must permit the use of the
Carpathian region for the passage of
troops to fight Russia, ln which event
we will have war with Russia, or should
we refuse we will have, if not a bloody,
it least an open, war with the Entente.
The consequences for us in either policy
would be catastrophic."

Delnlte Refasal by Soviet.
These were the outstanding develop
ments of the day and followed an of
ficial announcement that tbe Soviet
Government had definitely refused a
ten day truce requested by Lloyd
George as a result of Friday's meeting
with the Russian mission headed by
Kamaneff and Krassin.
While there has been no talk of of
ficially declaring war on Russia, tht
Allies have decided to give Poland nil
possible military, naval and economic
assistance without delay.
In British and French circles to
night it is admitted tbat tbe situa
tion created by the Bolshevist refusal
of u truce has brought about a crlsla
only second iu gravity to thut which
confronted the Allies In 1914.
The Premiers received two notes
from Moscow to-day in answer to
Lloyd George's request for a truce.
To-night they sent another note to tha
Soviet and also advised Poland tr
seek a truce direct from the Bol
shevlkl, who Indicated ln their refusal
of the truce that if the request cam
direct from the Poles it might have a
better chance of being granted. Onp

Poles and Russians had been called
