The Germans have been boasting that they would be In Calais by December 1. .Vow they declare they will hold both Calnls nhd Dunkirk by Christmas. The now forces gathered In West Flan dot's, under Grand Duke Atbreeht of Wurttembertf, are at least the fourth new selection made by the Germans since they began their North Sea campaign. This gives an Idea of the heavy German cas ualties. Tho Germans have prepared a strong line of Intrenchments, upon which they can fall back If their next series of at tacks In the north fall. The severe weather In the north Is caus ing more suffering to the Indian troops. KING WOUKS ON TRENCHES. In connection with tho weather tho following story comes through from France: "Dcsplto the cold King Albert spent all of Sunday In tho trenches. Ho met some soldiers who had thrown down their spndos nnd wero warming their hands at n fire. The King paused nnd remarked pleasantly that tho weather was unusu ally severe. The half-frozen soldiers, recognizing tliclr monarch, were so over come thoy could hnrdly spenk. King Al bert then turned to his staff, saying: 'Gentlemen, I suggest that wo rollcvo theso Mne fellows and give them a chanco to get wnrm.' With thnt tho King seised n shovel and set to work vigorously. About a half dozen olllccrs of tho King's suite followed suit." Solssons, which has now been under cross-Ore of nrtlllery for the SUh time. Is a scene of black desolation. On the Place Do Republlfiue stands tho remains of n monument erected 13 years ago to tho citizens shot by German soldlcra In 1870. Shrapnel had ground Its way Into the grnnlto In what may secin n strange ly Vengeful way. Nearby Is a historic abbey in which Thomas a'Hoekett spent nlnti years. Its windows have beon smashed. Ono wall has been crncked and tho chimney Is only a remnant of former architectural grandeur. The cathedral of Notre Dnme wan a fine example of mixed romancsque nnd gothlo art. Now It Is a fine oxnmplo of the devastation and horrors of war. Another dispatch from Amsterdam quotes tho Handclsblad as saying that the Germans are still insisting that Antwerp pay a war levy of $10,000,000. and Deputy Burgomaster Fratick has refused until ho is assured that the Germans will make no more requisitions for supplies. Tho situation has reached a deadlock and Is strained, and it is feared that XI. Frant-k may suffer tho same fnto as Burg omniter Max, of Brussels, who, because of the nonpayment of tho Brussels In demnity, was taken prisoner to Germany. A Dally News correspondent In Rotter dam says that tho process of "squeezing" Ghent In the Interests of the German of ficers who have made it tholr headquar trs proceeds merrily. .

Tho Southern Poland battle is at a standstill in the re gion of Czenstochowo. Our attack is pro gressing on the southern wings northeast of Cracow. "Russian reports that Generals Llebert and Tannewltz have been captured are pure Inventions," The official German news bureau an nounced that Switzerland had protested at London and Bordeaux against the vio lation of Its neutrality by British aviators flying to Frledrlchshafcn and had de manded satisfaction. The bureau also gave out this Informa tion: "Italian papers see In the molestation of Italian shipping by the French a sys tematic plan to divert Genoa's maritime trade to Marseilles.

LONDON, Nov, 24. The German torpedoboat destroyer S-12-l, which collided with tho Danish United Ship Company's steamship Anglo-Dane oft the Swedish coast, has a big hole In her starboard side and was taken in tow by other German destroyers and later was beached on the coast of Sweden, ac cording to dispatches received today from Copenhagen, Tho Anglo-Dnno had the body of a dead German sailor on board when she reached Copenhagen and another In the hospital. Earlier reports from Copenhagen were to the effect that the S-121 had been cut In two and went to the bottom Imme diately after the accident. The collision occurred In the Baltic Sen outside ot Falstcrbo, Sweden. Sunday night, while tho German craft were speeding with all lights extinguished. Tho news of thn disabling of the Ger man destroyer followed closely upon tho heels of tho announcement tlilit the Kaiser's navy had suffered a serious loss In the sinking of the Gcrmnn IMS sub marine by n British destroyer off tho north coast of Scotland. Tho destruction of tho submnrlne, U-18, one of the nofVer and most offectlvo types, Is ofllclnlly reported by the Admiralty. There Is tin Indication thnt the U-18 was nt least 6C0 miles from her bnso at WIN hclmshaven and was searching for the' British licet. , The ofllcial statement was ns follows: Tho German submnrlne U-18 was reported off the northern const of Scotland this morning. At 12:20 n British patrolling vessel reported having rammed her. Sho was not sighted ngnln until 1:20 p. in., when she was seen on tho surface with her crew on deck and flying a whlta Hag.

BRITISH ADMIT DEFEAT IN EAST AFRICAN FIGHT Routed by Germans at Supposedly Weak Post 705 Lost. T.ONDON, Nov. 21. Tho official press bureau has made public tho following communication Is sued by tho Marquis of Crewe, Secretary for India: "In East Africa, It appears from the latest information that, as an Important Gorman railway terminus was reported weakly held, a forco was sent from Brit ish East Africa to solze It. On the eve ning of November 2 one nnd a half bat talions landed within two miles of tho placo nnd became henvliv engaged iust outside of tho town. But as the enemy were In much superior strength, the force was compelled to fall back and await re inforcements. "At 11 n. m. on November 4 the attack wns renewed. When within S00 yards of the position the troops engaged came under a heavy Are on their left flanV In spite of heavy casualties, the 101st Grennclers actually entered the town nnd crossed bayonets with tho memy. "The North Lancashire Regiment and the Cnsmlr Rifles on the right, pushed on In support, and under a heavy fire also reached tho town. They found them selves opposed by tiers of fire from the houses, and were eventually called back to ccJvcr, EOO yards from the enemy's posi tion. "The losses were so heavy and tho posi tion so strong that It was considered use less to renew tho attack, and the foYce ro-embnrked to teturn to Its base to pre pare for future operations. "From reports Just received the total casualties In this unsuccessful operation wero 735. Including 111 British officers nnd men. The wounded are mostly doing well. Many are convalescent."

DOOM OF WARSHIPS SEEN IN LATEST OF SUBMARINE TYPES Dreadnoughts, Even of Most Powerful Build, Cannot Cope With Hidden Foe Able to Take Long Cruise. By A NAVAL EXPERT KEW YORK, Nov. 2t.-The sinking of thn British superdrendnought Audacious by the oxploslon of a Whitehead torpedo fired from a submnrlne only confirms my herctoforo published statements thnt no surfneo vessel can wlthstnnd tho attack of a Whitehead torpedo or mine, it nlso proves that tho maintenance of a cIorc blockade of one country's ports by nn other Is impossible. It further proves that It wilt bo Impossible for Kngland or any other country longer to claim to be "mistress of tho seas," because subma rine boats aro rapidly being developed with sujfficlent rndlus of action to chnso and attack battleships on tho high seas. I think the report that the submarine which sank the Audacious was accom panied by n mother ship was an error. If the Germans have In commission some of their 1912 or 1913 authorized class ot sub marines they could rendlly have mndo a cruise ns far as Lough Swllly and return without n mother ship. Our Intest boats of about the same size have a radius of action of over 6000 miles at a speed of It knots. A vessel o this typo would therefore bo nblo to stenm from any of tho Gcrmnn ports nnd talto up a posi tion off any harbor or base which the English might establish, either on the English Channel or on the west coast of Englnnd or Scotland. If these vessels are fitted with anchors so they could romaln at nnohor In a buoyant condition, or with cushioned bot tom wheels so they can He at rest or navigate on tho bottom, they could have renched Lough Swllly and have remained on station for a month at a tlmo If neces sary, awaiting opportunity to get within sufficient close range to fire their torpe does. I learned several months before war was declared that Krupp had a large number of Diesel engines under construc tion (over 60), some of them of largo size. This would lndlcato that 30 or more sub marines wero then rapidly nearlng com pletion. I therefore have no doubt that from now on we will continue to hear of the loss of England's capital ships unless they withdraw them into land locked har bors or keep them far away from tho coast lines where thoy cannot bo located by the Germans. The only thing1 England enn do Is to fit hor own submarines with bottom wheels, anchor weights nnd mine detectors and evading apparatus and mnko good Win ston Churchill's threat "to dig tho Ger mans out" or keep off tho German har bors and keep their capital ships also bottled up. It appears the Germans, who arc the great national students of new methods of warfare, are rapidly getting Into the position to carry out their desire as ex pressed to mo by Admiral von Tlrpltz several years ago at tho time I submitted to them plans of the first cruiser typo of submarine. The Admiral told me that thoy wero more Interested In boats for offensive purposes against a foreign coun try than they wero In the defensive class. At that time the failure to get a satis factory engine prevented the construction of such large vessels, but that difficulty Is being rapidly overcome, and I expect within the noxt two years we will be able to build submarines equaling or exceed ing battleship speed and radius of action. rnTwii.uWAVtWTOwa'.!-' !w;mywJ . ii i ,n m i.j S a 1 s n "Some" stock record In one'of Boston's subutbs is the headquarters of a manufacturing concern that does busi ness in almost every civilized country on the face of the globe.

By NEW YORK TRIBUNE GRIT0 Tho drive o General von Hlndenburg nt the Bueslan forces between the Vistula and the Warthe rivers has diverted at tention from the steady progress Of the Russian oeeupatlon ot middle and west- ern- Gnlleln. The first Russian advance nftcr the evacuation or L,emoerB "'" enpture of Jaroslav penetrated m'aaie Oallcla almost to the line of tho Wlstok Blver. Tho country to the west ana southwest of Przemysl up to the Carpa thian Mountains wns occupied, several of the Carpathian passes were selied and advance ffUards of Cossacks made their way throuah the mountains to tho great plain of Hungary, That wah tho situation about the end of September. Then the Gcrman'Austro- ttiiMi.nllnn nttnrtmvr nn 4tiA Pflfttfm front Rot tinder way. The reorganised Austro Hungarlan forces moved eastward from behind the Wistok Blver and not onjy re took Jaroslav nnd relieved Przemysl, but also spread far to the southeast and at tacked th'e Ilusslana on the line from Sambor to Stry. An nrmy under General Victor Dankl nlso crossed tho Vistula Itlvcr Into southwestern Poland and op erated In conjunction with General von HlndenburB'a armies against Ivangorod. The collapse of the Polish Invasion about tho end of October compelled a quick re tirement of tho Austro-IIungarlan armies In middle and eastern Gallcla. The Bus slans have retnken the Uzsok Pass and havo occupied tho lino of railroad run ning" parallel with tho Carpathian rango as far west as Ncu Sandcc, This town Is on the Donnjco Blver, close to the mountains, nnd only about 45 miles south cast of Cracow. Ncu Sandcc .was for many weekB the headquarters of the Austro-IIungarlan General Staff. Now It Is in Russian hands nnd tho General StnfT headquarters Is probably In or near Cracow. Tho Russian campaign against the ancient Polish cnpitnl on the Upper Vis tula Is therefore taking a very deflnlto shape, In splto of tho pressure brought to bonr by von Hlndenburg on tho Rus sian nrmles 130 miles north In the region between Plock nnd Lodz. Tho Russians are evidently planning an ndvance north west from Ncu Sandcc, ono directly west from Tarnow nnd one southwest out of Poland. They aro also still fighting at Czunstoobrwa, near tho Slleslnn border, nnd a victory there would cuablo them to move straight south and Invest Cracow from tho renr. A great success by General von Hlnden burg In tho north would, of course, de lay tho Investment of Cracow, If von Hlndenburg can again threaten Warsaw, after defeating tho Russian right wing, tho Russjun ccntro In Poland Will havo to withdrnw nnd the ndvance In Gallcla will Btop. The German public Is banking heavily on von HlndenbUrg'a otratcsy and his energy ns a fighter. The Russians havo held Lemberg for nearly three months and their- armies are now lighting nt points 150 to 200 miles west of Lemberg. It Is logical to risk the prediction that the' evacuation of Cracow is only n question of time. Both sides aro claiming success In the CENTEMERI nothing but gUvet lince 1870.
