I ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
LONDON, Sept. 23. The battle of
the Aisne seems to be waiting on the
outcome of the attempt of the allied
forces to outflank the German right i
wins. At any rate a French officiil
report issued this afternoon, while it

simply records the repulse oi several
violent attacks by the Germans and
the fact that elsewhere the situatiou
is unchanged.
Military experts, however, warn
the public not to ignore the German
efforts to force the French barrier
chain at its more assailable points,
and it requires a lot of patience to
wait for the result of this battle, but
so confident are the English and
French that their armies will be
successful that they are not mucn
wor.-ied.
In Galicia the Russians are pushing
steadily on to the goal, which for
the moment is Przemysl. They ap
parently have that place pretty well
surrounded now, for following the
capture of Jaroslau they announced
today the occupation of Wislok, a
town on the Hungarian border south
west of Przemysl, and an important
station on the railway which runs

army through the Carpathians to i
Hungary. It is also another link in I
the chain which the Russians are
drawing a.-ound the fortresses of
Przemysl and Cracow.
In the German frontier the Rus
sians are in close touch with th&
German forces, according to their re
port, but no fighting has occurred.
The Servians record almost daily
successes. This time It is the cap
ture of Liubovia on the River Drina.
The event of the day has been the

case of a raid on England. The of
ficial bureau estimated the flight was
undertaken as a warning to the Ger

dropped on unfortified towns in Bel

is also intended to include London,
which has been looking for a visit
from the Zeppelins for some days.
The losses thvough the sinking of
the British cruisers, while heavy, are
infinitesimal compared with those on
the battlefields. It is reported from
Holland that 50,000 German wounded
passed through Liege from France,
and it is known that the losses on
both sides vere very heavy.
Another batch of German prisoners
arrived in England today. They
were taken to Camberley, where since
Friday 1500, including 300 imperial
guardsmen, have been brought in.
The Austrian losses were even
heavier than those of the Germans
and the allies. Up to September 14,
according to Russian papers, -the
Russians captured seven Austrian
flairs, Kt'.fi guns, 44 machine guns and

this fund in fourteen bales of cotton

Mrs. McCorimck added that the
fund would be divided up among the
fourteen southern state associations.
"Each state president," she said,
"will receive in a day or so A check
for $50.00. She will' be authorized to
go into the open market and buy a
bale of cotton at ten cents a pound.
She can leave it in the warehouse if
she likes, or she can take it to. the
state suffrage headquarters and give

The point simply is that the National

share in a perfectly disinterested way

statement that so far as she knew

RUSSIA IS READY
, 10 SIGN TREATY
tASSOCIATID PB3SS DISPATCH
. WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. Russia's
manifestation of friendship for the
United States expressed in her an
nounced intentionof signing the peace
commission treaty may lead to nego
tiations for a new treaty of commerce
and navigation between the two coun
tries to replace the one abrogated
during the Tart administration. This
was the view of many diplomatists
and officials when it became known
that Secretary . Bryan had received
word of the intention of the Russian
government to negotiate a treaty
along the same lines as those with
Great Britain, France, Spain and
China, reported favorably by the sen
ate today. Those treaties submit all
the disputes which cannot be settled
by diplomacy to a permanent commis
sion for investigation during - the
period of one year, and are regarded
by the Washington government as a
practical safeguard against a sudden
outbreak of war.

EL PASO, Sept. 23. General Villa
tonight denounced the central gov

nounced his independence in a state
ment to the Associated Press. This
1 placed the state of Chihuahua in open
revolt against the Carranza govern
ment, as well as Sonora, where May
torena previously had proclaimed his
independence.
All the available tnoops under
Villa's command we're rushed tonight
to meet what was reported as a
strong force of Carranza troops mov
ing north from Zacatecas. Even two
brigades sent on an overland march
into Sonora to assist the Maytorena
revolt were recalled hurriedly and
they passed through Juarez tonight
on their way brick to Ohfnu.'ihua.
Villa's capital.
Villa in his statement asserted that
besides Chihuahua, Sonora, Zacate
cas and part of Coahuila, Carranza s J
native state, had joined the- uprising.
He said that Gen. Obregon will leave
tonight for El Paso.

HiS STAND OH STRIKE SITUATION
FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENTS STILL
OF A HOPEFUL CHARACTER
ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
NEW YORK, Sept. 23. Financial
developments were of a hopeful char
acter so far as they bore upon the
domestic conditions. The outcome
of the New York City $100,000,000
loan with notes already quoted at
substantial premium, and the energy
manifested by the leading bankers of
the country in connection with the
gold pool were regarded as sure signs
of returning confidence.
In the local money market loans
were made with more rreedom, some
at seven per cent. Another feature
was a better demand for commercial
paper at a shade under that rate by
mobilization of the troops In northern
Mexico loyal to Carranza is under
way at Monterey, according to reports
current at Matamores, opposite
Brownsville, tonight.
The Matamoras garrison departed
suddenly for Monterey with the ex
planation from the officers that all
the troops are being returned to their
native states and that state troops
would replace them. Americans ar
riving from Monterey said they noted
no unusual military movements, but
there' seemed to be considerable un
rest in the city.
Villa Renounces Carranza
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. General
Villa telegraphed General Carranza
disavowing the latter, as the first chief
of the constitutionalist army, is in
charge of the executive power of Mexi
of the constitutionalist army, as in
message from Carranza to the consti
tutionalist agency here. Villa also an
nounced that he and his delegates w'ill
not attend the national convention in
Mexico city on October 1, for the se
lection of a provisional president.
The exchange of telegrams resulted
from Carranza's order to suspend rail
road communication between Aguas
Calientes and Torreon until he learned
whether not Obregon is held under
arrest by Villa.
The suddeji break between the two
foremost factors of the Mexican poli
cies caused a profound sensation here.
It is generally understood, however, the
president, who has set no date for the
departure of the American forces from
Vera Cruz, probably will delay evacur

ROOSEVELT'S VIEWS ON
CAPITAL AND LABOR
(From Colonel Roosevelt's Speech at Wichita last Saturday.)
There can be no permanent reign of law and
order unless it is based on the reign of justice.
When employers show themselves callous to pub
lic needs and greedy of profit without regard to the
welfare of the wage-worker, it is essential that the
people of the country shall be able, thru their collec
tive power, to remedy the wrongdoing.
We ought not to be content with any solution
which leaves labor all on one side and capital all on
the other. -
I will no more stand for tyranny by a labor union
than tyranny against a labor union.
Secretary McAdoo Adopts
Stringent -Measures to
Urge National Banks to
Extend Credit and Charge
Nominal Interest
LIMITS CROPS
MOVING FUNDS
Denies Requests for Addi
tional Funds From Gov
ernment Until National
Banks More Fully Utilize
Resenre Funds.
ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. Secretary
McAdoo tonight adopted stringent
measures to urge national banks to
extend legitimate credit and charge
normal interest on loans. He tele
graphed ten national banks in four
reserve cities in the south that their
requests for additional crop "moving
funds from the government would not
be granted now and made clear hia
action was taken in connection with
reports of excessive interest rates and
restriction of credits.
In a statement made public with
the telegram Secretary McAdoo de
clared there was extraordinary hoard
ing of money by banks throughout
the country piling up reserves with
out occasion. He said reports to the
comptroller of the currency showed
money hoarding is being carried on
by banks to an extreme degree, and
announced he expected to focus at
tention upon the guilty banks by is
suing a daily list of those with ex
cessive reserves.
Although the federal government
has no nower over state banks and
i trust companies, the secretary ex
j plained, state superintendents will be
asked to rurmsn avauame lniormaiion
on money hoarding in such institu
tions. He characterized money hoard
ing by the banks as an. agency most
likely to impair confidence and injure
business.
The statement in full follows:
"I have decided not to deposit the
second installment of the crop mov
ing funds with your bank at this time.
You can, however. If you desire, with
draw, one-half of the securities de
posited by you and use them as se
curity for an issue of additional cur
rency if you make application there
fore. I am informed that many banks
in your state are refusing to make
any loans for crop moving purposes,
in manv cases good loans being re
jected or unreasonable rates of inter
est asked. I also am informed that
many banks which have taken out
additional currency are refusing to
use it in spite of the great demands
for money. I trust you are not do
ing this. I will withdraw all govern
ment deposits from banks charging
excessive rates of interest or which
refuse reasonable accommodations, and
I will refuse to issue so-called emer
gency currency to banks which are
not making use of it on reasonable
terms for the benefit of a business
community. It is essential in the
present situation that everybody pull
together in an unselfish spirit for tho
good of the country. I. of course, ex
pect the banks to make a reasonable
charge for accommodations. My point
is the charge must be reasonauie as
tho cn-oneration and help of the
treasury will not be extended on any
other basis.
"Reports of the national banks now
being received by the comptroller of
the currency in response to his call
for' a statement of conditions as of
September 12, indicate extraordinary
hoarding of money by many national
banks in various sections of the coun
try. I am astonished 80 many mi
tiAnni lmnks are pursuing a course so
contrary to the public interest and so
indefensible from any point or view.
There is neither occasion nor neces
sity for it.
'Pull reports have not yet ben re
ceived by the comptroller but they are
coming in daily. I intend to begin
Issuing a daily list of banks which
are hoarding money by maintaining
excessive reserves, in order that the
country may know how they are per-
