Despite Berlin and Vienna dispatches today, reporting that the Austro-Ger-mans are bombarding the Serbian river defenses with the utmost vigor, the vrMtest confidence is felt in military circles here that the Serbians Will be able to withstand the assaults. "The AUstro-Germans must use at least 400.000 men to make any headway at all against Serbia." said ono London mllltar ycritlc today. "I do not be lieve they can spare that many men when you consider the fact that the Russians arc checking the Germans In he east and that the aKlser must pre pare to meet a possible offensive in France." Tho Serbian army. It Is known here, now has large supplies of amunltlon, In marked contrast to the situation with the Herbs earlier In the war. since the Serbians inflicted a crushing defeat on ttfe Austrlans last December they have been sunnllcd with every require ment of a modern army.

'Villa's capital, has been captured by the Carranstttaa in a! sweeping northward movement .OltlclajU dlsnatches today told of the flight of Villa's main army to the northern born der of Chihuahua state. In the meantime the activity of Gen' eral Villa's forces is being watched! with considerable interest. According?! to official information, he has ordered a E-nnprnl withdrawal of his forees to ward .luarei, the purpose apparently being to transfer them to Sonora. I Garrisons Streagtheaed. The Villa agency here emphatically tlon of Villa troops- at Ju&res bad anyl slntster aspect with respect to relations with the United States. As a precau-l tlon, however. Acting Secretary Breck-I Inrldgc, of the War Department, after a, conference with President Wilson, r-i, dered the Seventh Infantry and tha Fourth Field Artillery regiments from Galveston to strengthen the garrison at El Paso. Tex., bringing Its full strength to three regiments of Infantry, a regi ment of cavalry, and twenty-eight piece of artillery, a total of about 4,000 men. , Ftmsten's Forces. In the district east and west of SI Paso, Major General Funston has In all about 14.000 men, while In tho vicinity of Brownsville he has 6,000 men. The Twenty-eighth Infantry has been left at Galveston, and may be ordered to San Antonio, Tex., so as to be available at either Brownsville or El PaSo, ac cording as circumstances may require. "Villa's military strength is crushed," was the informal official interpretation, of State Department dispatches today that his army had nbandoned Chihua hua and fled northward to the Chl-hauhua-Sonora line to make a forlorn stand against the sweeping movement of Carranslatas. The VUllstas are reported retreating Into Sonora to Join General Meytoreoa s army. ... The VUllstas matte the best use they ..t.t nrtiuift troon trains In aetong north, abandoning all save the hope of escape.

Fuller and a ranchman named McCabe. hare been kidnaped by Mexican bandits, the State Department was advised today. The Americans were taken from a ranch between Juares and Chihuahua and nre being held for ransom. The State Department today sent a demand to American consuls at both places, de manding their release by the Mexican authorities. . A new plan of Carransa to attack Gusvmas. on the west coast, was Indi cated In State Department advices. Three hundred Carranilsta troop board ed a transport at Manzanlllo and wore reported en route to Guaymas. Vllllste General Iturbe has deserted to Carransa and been appointed military commander at Collma. Belated reports to the department conflict with the advices that Villa has entirely exacuated Torreon and Chihua hua, up until Monday, me vtuista gar rison at Torreon and Durango had not evacuated, but were prepared to leave. Ono hundred Americans left Torreon Monday. Twenty Americans and nearly all other foreigners remained. That the Carransosta forees were not ad vancing against Torreon was officially reported. Plans of Carranza to permit a neutral administration to preserve order there wee announced.

IN PHILLY Nomlnlated ' By Republicans For Myorilty. .Washington Party Named Porter. (Continued from First Page.) deefs ration that the President can "force" the House and flenata to his will were not regarded as technical breaches of etiquette by an ambassador, thV arousad resoniment at the white As regards Gsrman Military Attacho von Papen, the Archibald lottors show that he used Archibald as a carrier of both official and personal papers. The former Is the graver oltcnso, in the minds of officials, That his usefulness is at an end so far as this Government la concerned, and that he will be with drawn by Ambassador Bernstorff, either with or without the suggestion of the State Department, was generally believed certain. Whether Von Pepen meant to refer to all Americans as T'ldlotlc Yankees," or onlv to certain Individuals, was an ele ment In Von Papcn's enso. The expres sion, coming from an uccrcdltcd diplo matic representative, was regarded, however, as at least, unfortunate. Nuber In Dumba'a Position. Revelation that Austrian Consul Gen eral Nuber had sent an official roport to his foreign office by Archibald was officially regarded as placing him In Dumba's position, of having abused an American passport. It Is understood Nuber's credentials will be canceled and also those of Consul Schwegel, who sent a formal -report regarding the proposed munitions embargo. OffW4ala were still undetermined to da acgardlnt- What action may be taws, against Oia Hungarian newspa per editor, who submitted a memoran dum outlining plans for the strikes proposed bv Ambassador Dumba. The faot that tho editor proposed paying union "aaltators" to foment strikes, and also subsidizing newspapers was a basis. It was believed, for a charge of "conspiracy." Bernstorff Not Censured. Ambassador Bernstorff Is regarded by the Government as not being Implicated in any wrongdoing In the Archibald In cident. The letters show that Bern storfTs action consisted only of giving Archibald letters of Introduction, ana to expedite his travel. The fact that Bemstorffs note o Secretary Lansing denying charges of ti German propngan Jft conspiracy wis previously forwarded to the department and a copy merely sent by Archibald was not considered a breach of eti quette. Tho Bernstorff note had also been previously published. Officials and diplomats were greatly Interested today In the statements In the Dumba notes that President Wil son has had this country's possible future interests in view In refusing an arms embargo. That the President "at no price and in no case" will take a position that would Imperil this Government's right to purchase war supplies from neutrals In time of war. particularly when the chief source of supply would be in for eign countries, was regarded as most significant. That Dumba has consulted with Col. E. M. Heuse, the President's closest personal friend and advisor, regarding the President's position on a munitions embargo, was another Interesting dls cloiure. Meat Case Interests Officials. Alleged threats of Chicago packers, as declared by Dumba, to cut off Eng land's meat supply, both from the United States and Argentina, excited much comment. In view of the recent British prize court decision confiscating millions of dollars worth of American meat. Officials said the knew of no definite flan hy the packers, who con trol the Argentine export traae as well as tho American. Rerusal of pri vate manufacturers to sell goods to any British or other firm would not be Il legal, It was stated. German Submarine Is Sunk in Black Sea PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 23. Thomas B.
