After seven weeks battering across Galieia, during which the Russians have been thrown kuk more than one hundred and fifty miles, the Austro-Germans are as close to Lemberg as were the (Jermans to Paris in the first smash across Kmnce last fall. Never, perhaps since before the battle of the Marne have the Ten tonic allies appeared so confident of success. Having failed in their original plan of crushing KYanoe and then turning to Russia, they have reversed the ord er of their strategy and now, Judging by the expenditure of life and ammuni tion in Galieia, they have pinned their whole faith In so paralyzing the Ktm sian army as to permit the throwing of u tremendous weight of men and metal into the western theater, there either to break through the France Hriiish lir.e or force an interminable period of sanguinary warfare. A dispatch from Copenhagen says the German emperor has taken su preme command of the Galician cam paign, establishing headquarters at Si lesia, as near the front as practicable. Meanwhile a German official communi cation records further progress of the Austro-German forces toward Lem berg. north and south of the city. It claims the Russians have been cleared from parts of the Dniester to the south. The great question England and her allies are asking is whether Grand Duke Nicholas, commanding the Rus sian forces, will successfully emulate Genera? Joffre's tactics of last fall and check the Austro-Germans at the Kates of Lemberg-. Optimists point out that ho checked them almost at the gates of Warsaw. It is urged further j that even should Lemberg- fall. ffie Russians can drop back to equally for midable positions, utilizing the rivers and swamps and other advantages in Terrain, and it is the British conten tion they could thus hold out for months. England and France In the meantime are sending to their aid the men and munitions necessary. Whether Russia has sufficient ammunition to meet the present strain its a question that can not be answered by England, although London papers say frankly the short age is acute. A Reuter dispatch from Athens says It is reported the Serbians have occu pied Durazzo. Albania. Essad Pasha, provisional president of Albania, and former commander of the Turkish forc es at Scutari, it is said has fled to Italy. Ruesian on Retreat VIENNA. June 20. The Russians hav been In general retreat since three o'clock Monday morning along the entire front after having been forced out of their positions on the Werezyca river, a short distance vest of Lemberg. Priests Called to Arms UDINE, Italy. June 20. In addition to several hundred priests who are going to the front as chaplains or as members of the Red Cross society thousands of young canons, parish priests, coadjutors, vicars, professors In seminaries, monks and besuits have been called tinder arms. Most of them lelong to the medical or other non combatant services, but many are of ficers or non-commissioned officers in the combatant ranks. Chaplains who are carrying out their ecclesiastical functions carry bags of black American cloth containing all that is strictly necessary for the cele bration of their office on the field.

A chew of tobacco in time has saved ninny a soldier's life during Herman . gas attacks according to a corporal- of Canadian artillery in n letter to the Rev. C. It. Durrant of Freston Rectory, Suffolk. He gives his reasons as follows: "dan makes the air green and yel low and It chokes and poisons a man when he stands. The first time, we began to feel pretty choky at the guns and wondered if tobacco would help us. We thought we would try it, and put a big chew in our mouths. It made us spit up the gas. Now, when we notice Ihe gas in the air. we just take a chew irt tobacco."

Ail the senate conferees are not now in the city but it is expel led that they will all be present this morning. There is con siderable speculation as to the result of the proceedings in conference. It is generally assumed that all disputed points can in- agreed upon except the senate amendments to the provision for the ir.-ation of a :unl dcpartm-nt. Some of the si na tors, of course not speaking for the conferees say that there is not the slightest likelihood that they will recede f i om that amendment which it is pointed out was the result of a compromise in the senate and is to be rei:an'ed as the last word on that subject. The house conferees will probably be less insistent but it I; .'jmotful w i the the ho-tse ca;i be brought to concur in that senate amendment. Just how the conference report will be handled in the house is another matter of speculation. In the senate it will be adopted or rejected by a ma jority vole but the practice of the house !i:u been in cases of emergency bills, to require a two-thirds vot" for adoption. It is pointed out that such requirement is illogical for the reason that the amendments the house itself made to the bill were made by majority votes and, further, that a luling requiring a I w. -thirds majority may be overturned by a majority vote, l'.ut this is a mat ter that each house may determine for itself without any hint from the con stitution. While the conference committee is engaged there will b-- plenty of work for the employment of the house though the senate will have little to do except to act upon two bills which have been passed by the house since the Friday adjournment of the senate. At that time the desk in the senate was dean. The house wll resume the prohibition hill this morning ano when that is disposer! of thi-r" are several other measures "up" including the anti capita! punishment bill.

Suddenly it slipped down rapidly some hundreds of yards. The waiting idiots watched with blanched faces until the machine righted itself: it was still descending very rapidly! and allies' lines were still a thousand yards away. "It's all up with her," said one pilot, "she'll land inside their lines."! The biplane then made a sudden lurch ' upward a hundred yards, then came down again more precipitutly than j before. It was this last desperate at tempt that lifted ' her over the lines; she landed just behind the allies' trenches.
