Loudon, May 21.—A state of war.uow exists between Italy and her former allies, Austria and Germany although there has been no formal declaration. The Austrian troops have been withdrawn from some of the frontier posts and all navigation services in the Adriatic have been suspended, indications that the clash is not far off. The Italian Senate today endorsed the Chamb. er’s action in granting the govern ment extraordinary powers m the event of war, for which the whole country appears to be enthusiastic. Simultaneously with the en trance of Italy, Serbia's recon stituted at my has fuily recovered from the campaigns being driven back from Serbia, and well armed and equipped, it is anucunced, lines uuuiiuouuDU a uiaiuu uunaiu the Austrian border bent on another invasion of Austrian territory^; Thus Austria is being attacked from all sides and he a still another eu .;n, Roumania, in prospect, for it has been an open secret fur a long time that Italy and Roumania have an agreement to act in ooucert Ron uiit.-u, however, is awaiting the conclusion of an agreement with Greece and Bulgaria, which also are expected to join the allies be fc re she takes up arms. These anticipations explain the tremendous efforts that Aus tria aud Germany are making to complete the defeat of the Rus sians, who forced out of western '’■'licia and the Carpathians, are ■kp, ring stubborn resistance be hHk.u) the San River and around H^E’t&mysl. The Germans who ^^rve crossed the San north of BtPrzemysl and the Austrians who have advanced to the southeast of that town, appear to have been halted, as today’s report fr< m Berlin does not olaim any further progress. JuBt. to the north, in Poland, the Russians are carrying on a Strong offensive and, driving the Geimans back, have partly ex hausted the German flankiu Ga licia. However, after che way they have been driven back and the heavy artillery bombardment they have had to undergo the Russians must take time to regain the initiative. Since foggy weather has stopped battles in the west the allies have confined themselves to attempts to improve and organize the posi tions gained, and in this they claim to have been successful, although the Germans state that all the allies’ attacks have been repulsed. Uu.ftioial Athem dispatches continue to report successes for the allies in the Dardanelles, but official quarters remain silent, an attitude whioh meets with some criticism. Loudon, May 23.—London to day awaited with deepest interest the outbreak of actual hostilities between Italy and Austria. Com munication across the Austro Italian border has ended, Italian mobilization has begun and Id Rome today decrees were issued respecting measures of an econo mic nature, establishing a cen sorship and providing for public safety. The Russians, with strong rein forcementt have crossed the San confluence with the Vistula and are advancing southward in an effort to outflank the Germans who crossed the San in the vici nity of Jaroslau They also are Striking bard at the Austrians in Bukowina, but apparently have made no further headway there nor with their offensive in the Opatow region. The latter effeu *ive, however, was a movement to uncover the German flank in Galicia, which it succeeded partly in doing. Iu the Baitio provinces the Germans claim to have defeated | the Russians in the regiou of | Sbaxli and also to have repulsed ! the Russian attacks from the j Pubysa and Niemeu rivers. i ■v ? Railroad Built by Confederate Soldiers Greensboro, N. C., May 28.— Among the lines now being dou ble tracked by Southern Railway, one stretch, 86 miles iu length, between Greensboro and Pelham, was originally constructed under the direction of the Confederate government and has remained as perhapB the most permanent monument of any work done by the Confederacy. Veterans from states South of Virginia, who go to the reunion at Richmond over the.Southern will have an oppor tunity to travel over this line and to see the work of double tracking now in progress. The entire line from Greensboro to Danville, Va., was constructed by the Richmond and Danville for the Confederate government as a war measure. Some years ago this line was double tracked from Danville to Pelham, N. 0., 9 miles. Despite the many im provements that have been made, the location of this line, as de termined by the war-time engin. eers, has never been changed and so well did they do their work that when the double traoking was undertaken very few changes were found necessary and, iu the main, the work has been simply the coustruotiou of a parallel track. mi. /■'i r. j_i . _ i i. • 1 uu vuuiouruaoo HUPUUIIUIOB saw the strategic value of a line eouuecting the R. & D. with the the North Carolina Railroad and were able to bring to bear suf ficient pressure to overcome the obstacles which had previously stood in ths way of its oonstrno bion owing to the rivalryiof North Carolina and Virginia, each state seeking to protect its own railway interests. The necessary rail was procured by tearing up other roads and when at the close of war the line was confiscated by she United States as one of the issets of the Confederacy, there was prolonged litigation before she Richmond and Dauville secured uudisputed title. The origin of this line is re membered in many local tradi tions and names, among them ‘'Tennessee Curve,” said to have been so called becanse the grading at this point was done by men of a Tennessee regiment.

M. Haufbauer, when war was declared between France and Ger many, bad been in Richmond for a year or more at #ork on hie paintings for the Battle Abbey. He returned to .Franoe when that oountry oalled her citizens to arm* and took hie place in the trenches. The fact that he has bean with drawn from the firing hue makes his return to Richmond to com plete his commission more sure. Those who have seen his work for the Battle Abbey have generous praise for it, and it is expected that his actual experenoes in bat tle will lend great reality to his Confederate paintings. The Confederate Battle Abbey stands oomplete save for the war paintiDge that are to be one of its chief features. Oue of the ohief events of the 1915 reunion of the United Confederate Veterans, which is to be held in Riohmond, June 1 2 and 8, will be the formal opening of the Abbey.

May 28.—via Paris Itlay is at war with Austria-Hun gary. With the issuance of tbs general mobilization order tbe Itlian Government issued a proolaima tion declairing war on Austria, which officially will begin tomor row. , Prior to this, snd after a lengthy Hd&ultation, the Ministers of War and Marine proclaimed all the provinces bordering on Austria and the islands and coast towns of the Adriatic in a state of war whioh was equivalent to the establishment of martial law, the step usually preceding the formal declaration. Although drastic action has been looked for momentarily, Italians pf all olasses have been electrified by the swiftly moving events. Early this morning great crowds gathered ' arouud the Quirinal to await the Ministers, who oalled on the King for the purpose of discussi: g the question and signing the decree. When Premier Salandra and Signor Sonnino, the Foreign Minister left the Palace the people ohered them enthusiastically. The entrance of Italy into the world war which began last August increases the number of States engaged in the confiiot to 11. Italy, allied with Germany and Austria-Hungary sinoe 1882 in the Triple Alliance, waB oalled on last Summer shortly after the assassination of the Austrian Grown Prince to support the Germanic Empires. She declined and there began a series of diplo matic negotiations whioh soon resolved tbemsslveB into the efforts on the part of Germany and Austria-Hungary* to induce her to remain neutral. Prince von Buelow. an astute Germau statesman whose wife is an Italian women, was sent to Rome He has labored indefatigably for months but in vani. He offered Italy certain parts of Austrian territory as the pnoe of neutrality, but her answer always was ‘‘it is not enough.” It now appears that Austria did not really believe Italy would enter the field against her. In the meantime there had arisen in Italy a war party led by the "Irredentists,” whioh made its voioe heard in no uncertain terms. Dispatches from Rome for months past have indicated that the sentiment for active participation was stronger by far than that for continued neutral ity, The Cabinet of Premier Salandra resigned early in May. This was the signal for violent demonstration in favor of war. A wave of patriotic fervor swept the oountry and the people were loud in their demands for a be ginning of hostilities. Troops had to be called out to maintain order. Even relatives of King Yiotor Emmanuel were hooted and there was talk of revolution. The Emperor of Austria-Hungary was burned in effigy in Rome, and ex-Premier Giolitti, leader of the pacifists, was driven into seolusion. These evidences of the popular determination had their effect. The announcement that Premier Salandra’s Ministry would con tinue in offiioe brought instant calm. nor mourns diplomatic ex changes between Vienna and Rome had been constant but the most persistent effoits to keep Italy out of the war were futile. The Triple Alliance was denounc ed by Italy May 4, but even after this diplomatic endeavors were continued, Austria offering Italy further concession as late as May 10 Italy’s first move on land un doubtedly will be against the Austrian frontier. The moun tainous character of the country promises operations and fighting of the most difficult nature. Foi several weeks past both the Austro Hungarians and the Italian armies have been fortifying along the dividing line. Carranza Forces Routed by Viila. Washington, May 28 —Dis patches from Vera Cruz made pnblio tonight by the Carranza agenoy, said the Villa forces left behind 2,000 killed, wounded and prisoners, when they evaouated Monterey last week and that fourteen troop trains with com plete equipment fell into the hands of the victorious army. Complete victory for the Villa forces over the Carranza army under Obregon in the battle near Oelaya yesterday was claimed to night by the Villa agenoy here on the strength of a dispatch from Diaz Lombardo, Minister of affairs at Chihuahua. The message, dated at Chihua hua today, as made publio by the agency, follows: An engagement was fought yes terday at points between Leon and Silao bbtween the foroes of Gen. Villa aud those of Gun. Obregon, resulting in the complete rout of the latter. A part of our forces occupied Silao while the remain der actively engaged pursuit of the enemy driving him beyond Oelaya. This pursuit is being continued. Large quantities of war material were taken, includ ing small arms, ammunition and some field artillery. Nearly all of Obregou’s trains fell into our hands. Details have not yet arrived but reports indicate the action was very sanguinary, the enemy abandoning a large num ber of men on the field.
