"'MOSCOW NOW HOLDS'
AMERICAN REFUGEES
REDS FORCED BACK;
MOSCOW IS SILENT
Pole Keep Up Offeneive to
Save Their Capitol.
Pabi. Aug. 17. Warsaw Is holding
well, according to the latsst news re
ceived hers to-night. The Polen, who
were beginning to repeat their old de
spairing cry of 1111. "Ooi Is too high
and France too far," fortified by the
counsel of France's eipsrt soldiers, have
now plucked up spirits with Immediate
effect.
Whlls It la too soon to forecast ths
favorable lasui' of the great battle near
raging under the waJIs of the cApltal,
the Poles appear to retain theinitlatlv
they took Saturday and contianfe to hold
the Bolahevlkl in check. In the South
east, on the Western Bug, they havs
scored notable success. Nevertheless ths
situation, with Warsaw threatened from
three sldea, undoubtedly remains serloj
and everything depends on the ability
of the Polos to keep up their aggressive
tactics.
It Is considered significant In military
circles that Iho Moscow wireless has
been unusually silent to-day.
Three days ngo the Holes fared an ex
tremely critical situation, with the Red
centre virtually reaching the outer forts
nf the capital. On ths right wing the
Soviet troops had. captured the aXltusk
HernrV hrlnneuead. driving the Polea
from the fork where the Narew Joing

i hi Sunday, however, the Poles
iiinehH a counter-offensive from Novo
Ueorglevsk, clearing the north bank of
the Narew. and yesteraay tney recap
tured the Serock bridgehead before ths
R,,ihvikl had time to establish them
selves. Operations are now proceeding
against the Pultusk forta
The Bolshevlkl In their retreat aban
doned considerable booty, which has
not vet been Inventoried. Operations by
the Polish right against the leprx ana
I he middle Uug continue according to
plan.
The French Foreign Office this evening
reported successful Polish counter
offensives from Thorn to clear out the
Polish corridor and along tne enure
southern front.
In the nelRhborhood of Cholm, on the
southern sector of the Warsaw front,
lltissian Soviet forces which bad crossed
ihr. Hue Hlvar have been hurled back
across that stream, while In the region Of
Modlln, northwest of the Polish capital,
the Poles have h gun a counter offen
sive, directing their attack In the direc
tion of Mlawa.
Ullltary critics here pointed out late
lart night that the situation was better
than It hod been for some time and
laid special stress upon the attaak
against tlte Bolshevlkl near Cholm.
They also said there were Indications
that the ToUsh command had decided
to make necessary sacrifices on the
southern front In Eastern Gallcla.
The battle near Cholm may be a
i re ursor of an offensive movement de
signed to draw southward Soviet
forces engnffed against Warsaw, It was
said, although some believed It was the
I'ollsh Intention to merely, gain time in

placed In the Polish attack near Mori'tn.

attacks on both flanks of the Soviet

Avoided Vistula Stronghold,
Statement Say.
Russian OIIMal
London, Aug. 17. Soviet forces are
centring their attack on Warsaw In
the region northeast of Novo Geor
gievsk. the powerful Polish fortress on
the Vistula to the northwest of the cap
ital, and along the line southeasterly.
It Is Indicated br Monday's official
statement from Moscow, received to
day. The communique reflects the recent
Polish withdrawal on the southern front
and announces the occupation by the
Russians of Hrody and Sokal, northeast
of Lemberg. The statement reads :
"Northeast of Novo Ceorglevsk and
Warsaw fierce fighting continues In
which we flung back the enemy with a
hayonet attack and occupied a number
of villages west of the River Vkra.
"In Eastern Gallcla, after fierce fight

RUSSIAN PRISONERS
ARRIVE IN WARSAW
Are Uniformed Like Steel
Mill Workmen.
Bp the Associated Press.
Warsaw. Aug. 15 (delayed). Great
numbers of Russian Soviet prisoners
resched Warsaw this afternoon, some of
whom had been In battle this morning.
They came in groups of twenty or thirty
and sometimes In droves of hundreds,
attraotlng crowds of the capital's resi
dents out for a Sunday afternoon stroll.
The prisoners were uniformed in dull
ash colored Jumpers and trousers bear
ing resemblance to laborers emerging
tiom a steel mill.
The sound of cannon was plainly
audible In the distance, but It was dis
tinct ry that of field artillery. Spiteful
explosions of .77 shells were frequent,
but the heavy booming of .2 id's. .320a
and .420s was absolutely lacking, giv
ing the Impression of a miniature war
as compared with the heavy cannonad
ing on the Western front In 1918.
Owing to the scarcity of freight cars,
most of which are being used by the
Government In moving records of the
various bureaus and other valuables.
many persons are moving their effects
to the suburbs In droskles, the principal
vehicles of Warsaw.
The fire department has been called'
Into service to aid In caring for the
wounded, hose wagons and other appa
ratus meeting ambulances at Iraga,
across the Vistula.
Among travellers arriving on a de
layed train from Danzig which was
held up becauseMhe railroad was under
Russian artillery fire southeast of
Thorn, where the road parallels the Vls
tula, were several Allied officer, who
said the shells apparently came from
the right bank of the Vistula, where the
Russians seemed to have succeeded In
bringing up long range gun.
Posen Citizens Appeal

LONDON, Aug. 16. Thousands
of the citizens of PoMn have
joined in a groat demonstration,
begging the Entente nations to
save Poland, says a despatch
from that city to the London
Tintfs. This message, which was
dated to-day, makes not refer

new Polish government in Posen,
rumors of which have been cur
rent here during the last couple
of days.
MUNITIONS ON BARGE
SEIZED BY AUSTRIA
Believed on Way From
French to WrangeL
By the Associated Press.
TmiiOKl, Finland, Russian Frontier,
Aug. 3 (delayed). A thousand for
eigners, Including thirty five Ameri
cans, are now at Moscow hoping for
action by their governments to get then'
out of Russia before winter sets In.
They Include, besides the Americans,
700 French, 100 British and 100 Scandi
navians. Aside from the thirty-five of un
doubted American cltltenshlp there are
a large number claiming American
cltltenshlp who have gathered from all
parts of Russia because of the Impos
sible living conditions and who are
awaiting BolshevlR-permlsslon to leave.
They are the last of Russia's prewar
foreign resident population.
Inquiries by the Associated Press
correspondent prior to his deportation
to Finland from Moscow because he
had not received advance Soviet author
isation for a trip from Vladivostok to
the Soviet capital developed that many
foreigners have been refugees In Mos
cow for more than a year. A tralnload
of French once was sent to the Russian
frontier and then returned because of
the attitude of the French Government
toward the Bolahevlkl.
The American In Moscow say their
status Is worse than that of the citizens
of any other country. They are held
virtually a hostages while the Soviet
trie to force Washington to negotiate
officially with Moscow or the Bolshevik
agents. ' The official of the Bolshevik
Foreign Office consider the United
States the most uncompromising of all
nations in her attitude toward the.
Soviet, although not as antagonistic as
the British or French.
Reds Hold Many Americans.
Five Americans are known to be Im
prisoned In Moscow. Among them are
Dr. A. W. Stlckney, geologist, and his
wife, who recently arrived In Moscow
from Siberia. The others are Royal C.
Keely, a man named Lamark and a
naturalized American Greek named
Culimlalanov, who has been Imprisoned
a -year and a half charged with being
a py.
The prisoners are Inaccessible and 1U
tl la known of their condition. H. O.
T. Reynolds, an American mining engi
neer, Is not permitted to leave Seml
palatinsk, Siberia, the Bolahevlkl de
manding his services there. A half
dosen other Americans have, been Im
prisoned In Moscow at different times
the last two years.
The Americans stranded In Russia
are for the most part long-time resi
dents who did not leave In the fall of
1118 when the United States diplomats
withdrew. Some lacked the finances
necessary for the trip to Siberia and the
Far Bast, which was the only exit, while
others were 111 or lived In distant prov
ince. Since, the consular officers departed
there has been no official method of
negotiations with the Bolshevlkl. In
dividual appeals to the Foreign Office
met with the reply that Americans
would not be permitted to leave Russia
untH the American authorities would
negotiate with the Soviet leaders re
garding their repatriation, probably In
volving terms of exchange for Com
munists In the United States. Anarchist
deportees who already have arrived In
Russia from America are declared not
wanted.
Hundreds Want to l.fntf.
The Americans In Russia recently
nominated H. C. Carlson, a former busi
ness representative In Moscow, to regis
ter the Americans and handle their
affairs with the Soviet authorities. I
The list of thirty-five Includes only
those having passports or papers prov
ing cltltensnlp. It does not Include a
hundred others wishing to return to the
United States, claiming citizenship and
stating that their passports were lost or
stolen by the Bolshevlkl.
Information regarding the Arperleans.
which has been sent out by themselves,
by British, and also by a representa
tive of the International Red Cross, has
brought no evident results, and the
Americans' hope Tor relief before winter
nre fading.
Corporal Arthur Prince of Detroit,
Mich., an American soldier who was
reeentlv released from Russlsn Imprls-! from Vladivostok
onment. has given the consular officials
and the Red Cross In Finland detailed
Information regarding the American
personnel In Moscow, and has asked
that. If possible, something be done for
their relief before winter.
Until two months ago a British relief
organization worked In Moscow. Upon
its departure Its funds were given to the
Americans, but these resources now are
virtually exhausted. A French relief
organization sends food to the Impris
oned Americans, but this relief will end
with the departure of the French, which
Is expected to take place soon.
The Americans have nothing of their
own, foreigners having been treated the
same as Russians In regard to requisi
tion and nationalisation.
A tralnload of foreigners arriving in
Finland Included Danes, Swedes and
French, many of them from Siberia. An
other party of 109, which was scheduled
to leave Omsk August 1, comprised the
last foreigner In Siberia, with the excep
tion of German and Austrian war prison
ers, estimated to number 100.000, who
are befng evacuated at the rate of 1,600
weekly. Before th war 5.000 Scandi
navian, business representatives and
agriculture! experts, lived In Siberia. All
of these have left excepting a few scattering.
and they are still being held at Moscow.
The Bolshevlkl had received Information
that Kraaslne, their Minister of Trada
and Commerce, had not been permitted
to return to London.
Likewise, seventeen British officers
and experts In the Slberlun railway
commission headed by John F. Steven
of Chicago, who were taken in custody
during the Kolchak retrtltt simultane
ously with CoL Frank R. Blunt of
Piano, 111 . and hi party, were stopped
In June as they were leaving the Bol
shevik territory of Irkutsk. The seven
teen members of the commission were
brought to Moscow and now are in
prison there.

Skbastopol, Aug. 13 (delayed). Gen.
Wrangol's recognition by France and
the announcement that a French diplo
mat would be sent here Immediately

that the Government will stand between
them and the old owners and will grant
them "new papers." Gen. Wrangel is
assuring the land owners thst they will
be paid eventually for the property, the
remuneration to be determined by a
popularly elected Assembly. As a guar
antee of his good faith, the Genernl's
wife, Baroness Wrangel. went to her
own estate In Northern Crimea and per
sonally supervised the division of her
land among the peasants.
The military forces of Gen. Wrangel,
head of the anti-Bolshevik Government
In South Russia, now aggregate about
150,000 men, one-third of whom arc
high class troops. Russian officer! es
timate that the Bolshevik forces ar
rayed against Gen. Wrangel are at pres
ent about 50,000 In lumber. Their es
timates are that the Soviets have some
SOO.OOO troops on the Polish front and
100,000 reserves available elsewhere.

Washington, Aug. 17. Amuemen'
was expressed In official and diplomatic
quarters In Washington to-day when a
Philadelphia newspaper made a
"spread" on a copyrighted and "exclu
sive" article on "what purports to be
the text of the 'Anglo-Japanese agree
ment of alliance In mil." The text
as published to-day of this alliance is
to be found on page 447 and 448 of the
Japanese Year Book of 1917. There Is
nothing secret about it. It recently has
been renewed for one year, and will
come up again at the end of that period.
Viscount Kato, formerly Japanese
Ambassador to England, dlacussing the
treaty recently, expressed the opinion
that a renewal of it would be an act
of prudence op. the part or both Eng
land and Japan, although he was unable
to name any specific object which would
be accomplished by its renewal. "It hss
been In existence for twenty years," he
said, "and It has been useful to both
countries. If It Is not renewed the
position will not be the same as If It
had never been made. The (tendency
will be for the two countries to drift
apart."

Dublin, Aug. 17. Disappointment Is
voiced In the press of Dublin to-day at
the statement made by Premier Lloyd
George In the ileum' of Common yes
terday relative to settlement of the
Irish question. The discussions In the
newspapers centre variously upon, the
three stipulation specified by the Pre
mier as a basis for consideration of a
settlement: Separate treatment for the
six counties of northern Ulster ; no se
cession of any part of Ireland from the
United Kingdom, and no agreement In
volving any detraction from the se
curity of the- British Isles or of their
safety In case of war.
The -'i-reman' Journal, which has ad
vocated dominion home rule and which,
under its present ownership, represent
large biiHincts InterestSkln Dublin, sug
gests, as a reply to the Premier, a
"financial and commercial boycott of
that part of Ulster which Is causing all
the trouble," a reprisal which, it says,
already Is being enforced to some ex
tent The Independent says th Premier's
first condition Insisting upon separate
treatment for Ulster, "make any dl
cuaslon with him . . wholly
futile," and adds that the Premier
"knows that the minimum settlement
which has the smallest chance of suc
cess Is the bringing Into operation of u
constitution similar to that of the do
minions overseas.'.
The Timet, Unionist, says that the
Irishmen expected an Important state
ment, on the Irish policy, and "there arc
only two possible policies if the country
is to be saved from anarchy: One of
reeonqueot, the other conciliation, and
two months hence both attempts must
be more difficult and costly than they
would be to-day."
Government troops are accountable
for the death of Thomas Farrell, a boy
who was shot and killed after curfew
on the night of August 10', during the
celebration here of the expected arrival
of Archbishop Mannix, was the decision

states !
"The deceased died of shock and
hemorrhage through bullets, fired from

of the military In empowering youth to

our deepest sympathy for the relative

"Financial Dementia"
IT'S an old disease but a new name. Old
fashioned people have known it for many
years as "money madness". It is applied
t to those who seek abnormal returns for
heir money who lack the courage, intelli
' gence and patience required of all those
who build lasting fortunes by investing
their funds for permanent income, year in
and year out
Ponzi is not the only one affected with
"financial dementia". From all parts of
the country come schemes which interest
speculators by promising fabulous returns.
'Even some who have had patience all their
life are now touched with the poison.
This is the time, as never before, to invest
with the old fashioned considerations of
safety in view.
We want to inform you about an investment
which has prime First Mortgages behind it;
has 6 ahead; is Guaranteed as to interest
and principal, and from which all elements
of speculation are eliminated, as well as the
worry and discouragement which inevitably
follow speculative schemes.
You cannot afford to be uninformed about
this investment. We will send you our
booklet without charge or obligation on
' ' your part if you will send your name and
address to us at once. ,

Who's Your Barber?
It's a real pleasure to be served by a barber who
knows his business thoroughly
who does your work the way you want it
done
who is courteous but not servile
who doesn't try to tell you who he thinks will
be elected President or what the weather is going
to be or what a hard time he had crossing the
street the other day
who simply does a workmanlike job in a work
manlike manner.
Terminal barbers are that sort.
