The Austro-Oer-ma.n bombardment of the Anglo- Franch linos before Balonlkl is be Ilrred to mark tho commencement of p. general assault upon the allies' v stronghold In tho Balkans. Tho rapid Increase of German forces, the arrival of fresh Bulgarian troops, and tho diversion to this sec tor of Turkish soldiers, military ob servers say, have reached the point where tho Germans are confident they can risk a grand Infantry attack after the heavy guns shall have cleared the way. , A tremendous artillery duel has been In progross three days about Dolran, In which the British guns aro paid to have more than hold their own against their adversaries, ac rordlng to dispatches from Balonlkl. Tho engagement Is reported to bo growing In Intensity. Move to Frontier. . Newly formed Bulgarian rcglmonts, officered by Germans, havo concen trated at Xanthl and Gumudljna fin the Dedeagatch-Salonlkl railroad In Bulgaria, while the Austrian troops are moving out of Montenegro toward j ilonastlr, leaving less than 60,000 bo hlnd to occupy the country. Rome dispatches declare tljat the "exaggeratedly pessimistic" reports from Austro-Gcrman sources In re gard to Itoumanltt's possible Interven tion on the side of tho alllos are in tended mostly to create tho false Im pression that the Bulgarians arc powerless to co-oporato In the attack on Salonlkl. whereas tho Austro Gcrmans, the dispatches state, are well aware that Houmania does not plan to Intervene at the present time, and that bci decision rests entirely i upon Tuturo developments In the I Balkans. .

Excited Crowd Cheers Verdict. As tho final act in Rhodo Island's most celebrated criminal case drew to a close the room throbbed with excitement, and Judgo Stearns gave warning that any commotion when the Jury camo in would be followed by punishment. Led by Clarke, tho lank foreman whoso Jaws have never ceased their movecmnt slnco ho took his Beat on tho first day of tho trial, tho Jury filed Into tho room at 6:06. Two of them were smiling. n "Mr. Foreman, have you reached a vedlrcf" asked the clerk. "We have," Clarke replied. "Do you find the defendant, Victor Brown, guilty or not guilty?" "Guilty," ho replied. "Do you find tho defendant. Henry Spcllman. guilty or not gullty7" "Guilty." Tho matter of fact tones of the fore man caused Mis. Mohr to stiff eh In her chair with apprehension. "Do vou find the defendant, Elizabeth F. Mohr, guilty or not guilty?" "Not guilty," said Clarke slowly. A little gasp came from Mrs. Mohr and she pitched forward on her counsel table, her body quivering. Her fighting little lawyer, Fitzgerald, threw his arsm about her and then moved across the loom for a glass of water. 'When he got back to her she was still sitting with her face burled in her hands on the tabic, sobbing. Rush to Mrs. Mohr. The clerk droned on with questions al most lost Jn the buzz that rose In the room, and as he finished and Judge Stcawii dismissed the Jury there wai u rush for the rail behind Mrs. Mohr. Her husband's brother, Gustavu Mohr, who with his sister, Mrs. Ella Hogan, had como from their home In McEwansvlllo, Pa., to aid the phy sician's widow with their testimony, reached her as she rose from hor seat, grasping at tho table edge for support. They threw their arsm around her, and C J. Sullivan, her brother-in-law, also drew her to him and klascd her. Flt7 K'ald, his work done, stood aside . iping away tears and smiling. Court attendants forced a wav for them to the door of the court house, and Mrs. Mohr stepped out into h snow storm, the shadow of her hutband's death lifted from her. The street was black with persons who had heard of the verdict, and as she walked down Market square, where the pillory UBed to stand, many veirn ngo. she was the center of a moving blot upon tho whiteness of the hill. Children Race to Meet Her. At the hotel she stepped into her car and was driven to her home! where the boy. Charlie, who took the stand to help save4ils mother, and Virginia, the seven-yearoId girl, waited for her. They rushed out as the car stopped, and tho mother stooped and gathered them to her and moved slowlv Into tho house. "I was confident from the boglnulng that when the truth was known no Jury would ever convict mo pr tho terrible crime with which I was charged," Mrs. Mohr said later In a statement. "I cannot sav too much of the con sideration of the ludge. the fairness of the lury. the kindness or mv friends who have so loyallv stood bv me In this trouble. I am homo again with my dearest Charlie and mv beloved Vir ginia, and I hope to be allowed, in peace, to devote tho rest-of mv life to their welfare."
