The battle fur the Straits of Dover, one of the most sanguinary of the war, is continuing with unabated fury, but thus far with out either side gaining any - decided advantage. The Germans, who at terrible cost of life, succeeded on Saturday in crossing the Yser canal between Nieuport and Dixmude, have not been able to make further pro gress as the allies, according to a report from the German general headquarters, issued this 'morning, have obstinately defended the posi tions. It is the same further south, around Armentiercs, Lille, La Bassee and Arras. The opposing armies aro delivering fierce attacks, and gain ing or losing a few miles or less with sacrifices in life that are ap palling. The whole countryside is fairly reeking with the blood of the thousands killed and wounded. In the towns and villages with which the country is dotted, most of which have been laid in ruins by the artillery, the most desperate fighting occurred when the ca valry and infantry come in contact. Both sides speak of heavy losses they imposed on the adversaries but say nothing of their own dead and wounded, to fill the places of whom reinforcements have been brought forward. The British fleet which did such execution in bombarding the German flank as it advanced along the coast, seems to have withdrawn yesterday afternoon. The Germans say this is because of their firtillery beginning to reach the ships. The belief is ex pressed here, however, that the fleet would be able to render untena ble German occupation of any part of the Belgian and the French coast. The opinion is also expressed that the operations of the allied vessels of the North Sea off the Belgian coast and in the vicinity of the Straits of Dover may cause the Ger man fleet Jo come out and give bat tle. In naval circles it is considered tr German submarines, although they have proved deadly to ships steaming sloVly, may not be so ef fective against ships steaming and maneuvering at high speed and in the shallow waters as the British monitors and their auxiliaries ha'e been doing. There is some talk of the Germans bringing their big 42-centimetre guns to the coast to use against the al- lies' warships, but the British sailors are credited with saying that their vessels can prevent these guns being jwnicn met witn suen decisive oeteat, ; cni pronouncement of the British put in position.

CONTRABAND PRIESTS START A HOLT WAR III I MEXICO Enraged by Acts of Consti tutionalist Soldiers, Pop ulace of State of Jalisco on West Coast Rises in Rebellion OFFICER SHOT IN NACO STREET BRAWL Captain Islas of the Sonora Garrison Held on Amer ican Side for Killing Offi cer and Private Close to International Line ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH EL PASO, Oct. 26. "A Holy war" in Mexico as a counter-revolution against the Carranza-Villa embroglio has been threatened, according to reports brought' here by Americans and Mexi cans who arrived today by various routes from Guadalajara. They told of uprisings against the constitution alist authorities in Central Mexico led by Mexican priests. It is indicated by local activities that the "cientifico" or ex-federal element which flourished under the Diaz and Huerta regimes would combine with the new move ment in trying to oust the constitution alists, who disagreed even before the riumph of their revolution. The new movement started at the town Of Union De Tula, state of Jalisco, when constitutionalists from the roof of the cathedral waved at the populace the bishop's mitre and afterward con fiscated the church property. This act so enraged the people that, led by the priests and the town mayor, they en gaged the soldiers in a running fight. Soor the tr-tnhle spread to towns ad joining Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico, and industrial center of the west coast country. A carload of ammunition was confiscated today by American troops at Mimbres. west of Columbus, New Mexico, on the ground that it had not passed through l regular port of entry. These inuiii- tions, it was learned, were being sent to arm an expedition in northwestern Chihuahua and Sonora, which was to have been independent of either the Villa or Carranza factions.

Indications that Carranza has agreed to retire in deference to the wishes of the Aguas Calientes national convention are con tained in official dispatches to the state department. General ibregon and the committee sent to Mexico City to interview Car ranza returned "highly optimistic." It is understood Carranza informed the committee he will not submit a second resignation, leaving to the Aguas Cal ientes convention the privilege of con sidering the previous rejection of hi,s demission at the Mexico City conven tion two minutes of which were form ally approved by the Aguas Calientes convention. With the arrival of Za pata's twenty-eight delegates, the con vention is expected to formally con sider the question of Carranza's suc cessor.

I The leading issue that is to come up before the forty-sixth annual fonvention of the National American Woman Suffrage association, which opens at Nashville November 12, is whether the vote should be sought by amendment to the federal constitution or by state-by-state extension of the suffrage. Another matter of absorbing interest that will be discussed is wheher the national association should follow the tactics of the Con gressional Union for Woman Suffrage, which is slightly militant. Rev. Anna H. -Shaw, president of the organization, is opposed to militant methods. Other leading suffragists who are in favor of the Unions methods are Harriet Stanton Blatch, Mrs. Ernest Thompson-Seton and Mrs. 0. H. P. Belmont. THE IUS CONTEMPLATED A REBELLION That is What Witnesses Tes tified in First Day of Fam ous Conspiracy Trial I'inias Promised Blood of Oppressors Hints of a motive and a means of carrying out the plot alleged to have been entertained by the Mexican and Yaqui "conspirators" were brought out the federal court yesterday in the testimony of S. L. Padilla one of the alleged conspirators and Frank L. Thackery, Indian agent at Sacaton. These important bits of testimony quickly followed Judge Sawtelle's ord er that the case be sent to trial, the demurrers of the defense to the indict ments having been denied. To move against the rich, rather than against the government was the social istic or anarchistic purpose of the original meeting of the five Mexicans, according to Padilla, who loosened up rather more than he did at the prelim inary hearing, and described efforts to unionize the Mexican laborers. Still, he said, he believed that to rise "on arms" and kill off a few plutocrats, was so closely allied with a rebellion against the authority of the United States, that his part in the plot was taken with the understanding that the government was to be attacked and not merely a certain well to do class of citizens. Thackery testified that.it camp to his knowledge Yacpii agents had been among his Pima Indians, telling them they should join the movement so they might resist the government's promised re-allottment of their lands. Using the fear of the Pima that they would lose hy any change Thackery and his men might make in their holdings, the men who were stirring things attempted to gain recruits to the cause by offering the reservation Indians a means of riuding themselves of the evil-minded white bosses and those progressive Pimas who favored the allottment. "They planned to kill us", said the wit ness. Beginning with the testimony of Pa dilla, the case presented yesterday was briefly that: The five Mexicans met first at the home of Jose Franco, 39 Franklin street. Here their talk was merely of organizing a union of Mexican labor ers, with no mention whatever of any incendiary tactics.

The smashing tactics of the Germans against the North Sea coast line continued in cessantly today, when big guns were turned on Nieuport and the allies had to withstand constant attacks of masses of troops. Very little progress, however, was made by tho Germans, who were faced with tho strongest resistance. Yesterday's crossing of the Yscr apparently had only a moral effect. as the Germans were confronted with a solid line of the allied troops which prevented advancing:, without overwhelming efforts, further toward the channel ports. The character of the country prohibits rapid move ment, as the land is cut up by canals and two strong series of de fensive works, separate them from DunWrk. The . German infantry executed a number of night attacks, not only on the extreme wing, by,t also in the vicinity of Lille, where they encoun tered a most obstinate resistance. The allies are displaying wonderful energy in this region. The com manders are sparing their men many hardships, and are able to give con stant reliefs to the troops on tne firing line. When they come from the front for rest the troops arij accommodated in numerous villages scattered in the rear, where they seem to throw off all feeling engen dered by the critical situation, and play cards, dominoes and other games in cafes until the bugles call them together for a further spell ct fighting. Then they go forward cheerily to an inferno where they must face shrapnel and machine guns, bidding "so long" to comrades whose places they are taking. Sometimes the villages change hands several times during the course of a day's fighting. Today in one hamlet forty allied soldiers who had been wounded were lying in a factory which had been trans- fcrmed into a hospital. A shell struck the building, which broke into flames. Ten bearers of an American ambulance volunteered to rescue the wounded and succeeded in saving all of them. An hour afterward the hamlet was captured by tho Ger mans who after occupying it a short time, were chased out again after desperate street fighting. Meanwhile the wounded allies were removed to a hospital in the rear. On the line from Solssons to Cra onne, the allies are said to have ob tained a slight advantage in today's fighting, while on the eastern wing the French are credited with a ga'n which, it is claimed, places the Ger man lines of" communication in dif ficulty. The French here pushed well forward and left only a narrow out let about twelve miles wide for ft possible German retirement. The French are said to occupy every po sition of importance in Vosges. Their scouts swarm in every wood and thicket in front of the trenches which are protected with barbed wire en tanglements. French aviators irs doing excellent service in locating the German forces, and finding tha positions of the artillery. THE WEATHER TODAY WASHINGTON", D. C, Oct. 26.
