al messages indicated that Germany
is ma prepared to yield to the in
sistence of the Fnited States on

disposed lo ask for a compromise,

The situation is not regarded by

and that public sentiment here favors
compromising 'he Issue. During the
pendency "f the negotiations the an

absence of mistaken attacks on

I MFXK'o CITY, Julv . Repeated
attempts of the forces of General
Gonzales to capture Mexico Citv
have failed. The troops of General
.Zapata claim the 'arranaa advance
has been definitely ehec-kecl. liespite
assurances the government achives
and treasury funds have been moved
to Cuernnvac-a. Special trains and
street cars are kept in readiness to
carry away government officials.
Many gov ei nme-nr offi'.ir.ls includ
ing Provisional President Francisco
Log. is Chas.iro are still living in the
national palace. A number of wound
ed soldiers have been brought to
til.- hospitals for treatment. Outposts
of the convention forces are located
at Farrinetos en tiie grand canal lie
tvveen Los Reyes and Xochimilco.
Advance guards of the Carranza
forces penetrated the outskirts of the
capital liberating 4.o prisoners from
the penitentiary and a number of
polUi.-al refugees from the Tacuba
jail, but later, were driven back thre-e
miles. Rusiness has been paralyzed
sm. e the siege comm'-ncd.
The fear is expresseel that there
-..ould lie general looting of the city
should 'he- constitutionalists succeed
in capturing it. Mobs formed and
parading the streets e-alied upon the
inhabitants to fight with the con
vention troops, but few lesponses
were recorded. Stores dealing in
fire arms were visited and unsuccess
ful a tempts made to batter down
the doors. General Kuphemi'i Zapa
ta, i' brother of General Zapata, ar
r'ved from Ouatla with lihOQil men
to reinforce the defenders, but his
men arc poorly e-quipped.
Iailv meetings of the diplomatic
corps h ive been held in an endeavor
to get promises of protection to for

f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
LOXI)ON. July ti. With the excep
tion of certain sectors between the Vis
tula and Ling the Aust ro-German rush
in the eastern theater is losing momen
tum. The Russians have braced them
selves holding most points along the
line, although the Austiians claim
progress northeast of Krasnik. further
east along Viepis and in the neighbor- I
hood of Tamogrod. This is a critical j
fiector so far as a northwarel blow toj
Wansaw is concerned. Tiie British re- I
port a gi'in on the German trenches
north of Ypres.
It is noteworthy ti.at t inlay's Berlin
official speaks only of a gain in north
ern Poland, leaving the the southeast
ern field to the Aitstrinris, whose offi
cial emphasizes an advance in the cen
ter between Vistula and Rug, made
by "Austiians.'' The British advance
on Y'pr.ss was made through typical
trench warfare, hackee hv French ar-
tillery. This part of the western front
still holds :i reputation us the gas
area. The British say the Germans are
bombarding Ypres with gas Khells.
There are rem-wetl rumors that the
Germans are preparing to launch a new
offensive in the' west, be ing a duplicate
of Ihe (Jaliei.in tnetiivs to break through
to Calais. Reports to this effect came
simultaneously from Zurich. Brussels.
Paris and Amsterdam. London papers
give the reports prominence, although
the-y question how much of them are
based in tacts. Zurich reports that ten
German army corps which have bee r,
recuperating from the- rigors of the
Gfilician. campaign are now moving
Westward from the interior. Latest ad
vices from the Dardanelles took the
Anglo-Frenih expedition no further
forward and made plain the gallantry
of the British and French who are
fighting' under almost unsuimountable
difficulti.-s.

ia. midway between Paredon
and Monterey in which six hundred
Cavrnnzii troops were1 killed say the
fighting be-gan at five in the morn
ing and continued furiously until two
in the afternoon. The battle opened
with a terrific machine ' gun fire on
both sides. There are unconfirmed
reports tonight that another battle
is ra:;ing somewhere near Paredon,
the Carranza troops having been re
inforei'd. About noon the Carranza command
ers eirebred a cavalry charge and there
was hand-to-hand fighting for two
! hours before the retreat was ordered
by the Carianz:i chiefs. The battlefield
I e-is. strewn with deael and wounded.
Mosu of the latter were carried from the
. field to special trair.K and taken to
j Monte-rev- and Nuevo Iaredo. Carran-
:.i authorities admit the loss of 6'"'

wounded. They claim they inflicted
more se-iions losses on the Villa forces.

Not Advocate Of Peace At
Any Price--W. . Bryan
ASSOCIATED prkss DISPATCHl
SAX FRANCISCO, July 6. Wil
liam J. Bryani while strongly in favor
of peace', is not an advocate of peace
at any cost, according to an address
delivered at a. luncheon here.
"I have been greatly misrepresent
ed," he sairk "but I .dem't mind. I
am not visionary enough to believe
I can prevent till wars, but I be-lit1ve
that many wars in history e'ould have
been prevented.
"I believe in standing strongly for
peace, but whenever every means of
a peaceful settlement has .been ex
hausted, fighting is inevitable. I am
prauel I was a soldier at the lime of
the Spauish war. 1 believe in soldiers
but believe soldiers should be like
firemen ready for fire without' de
siring it. If I could have helped
Wilson one iota I would have stayed
as secretary. I listened and heard
nothing but the sound of war and
saw in jingo papers nothing but war
news and when I saw that false
standard set up I could, elo notihng
but get out."
