t ASSOCIATED PRESS OlSrATCH
LONDON, June 20. 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.

L FIGHT
OH LID BILL
STAGED TODAY
Speculation ;is to licsnlt of
'(inference Which Will
Take Place Tins Morn
ing if the Seriate Man-atrei-s
Have Upturned
The conference on the public land
bill will probably take place today. 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

Dl'NKIilK, June 20. The airman
who located the 15-inch German gun
that bombarded' Dunkirk succeeded
by only the narrowest margin in i
bringing information in. Several
pilots and observers, French and Kng
lish, volunteered for this service. The;
honor fell to a biplane with a pilot 1

on Monsieur M with Monsieur.

chines with their crews were ready!
to follow in case the first should not i
come hack. j
The second volunteer was about to!
take the air when a speck appeared
in the distance, rapidly growing larg- j
er, but wabbling like a wounded bird 1
struggling to maintain its equili
brium. 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. The Germans opened a hot I
lire but a sharp attack by the French j
drove them out of their first line ofi
