Beplylng to a question in the House of Common. James Ian Macpherson, parliamentary secretary to the war office, said that the Turkish posts between the TalUa-Maln district and Akaba were now in Arab hands. The total Turkish losses In the fighting that has taken place were TOO killed and 600 prisoners. Including twenty officers, he stated, while one moun tain gun also was captured. A Turk ish battalion was destroyed on July 2 and" the Hejax railway damaged at many points. It Jtemi probable that the towns f Taflleh and Ma an.

Tafileh is about fifteen miles southeast of the south ern extremity of the Dead Sea, and Vaan la slightly to the south of the railway line from Damascus to Me dina. GERMANS BOMB HOUSE THEY BUHT IN LONDON LONTXJN, July 13, During the ln-Quest-lnto the deaths of victims of the recent- German air raids inquiries were directed toward ascertaining the construction and ownership of a re markable building erected before the war, supposedly at German Instiga tion, with re-enforced walls over six feet thick, and alleged to have been Intended for use a an enemy strong hold In London.

July .13. A dispatch to the Sun from Paris say that when Urn American soldiers eventually get into the front line trenchea and begin strafing the Germans they will be guided by a distinctly American sys tem of operations. General Pershing and his staff have been studying both the British and French systems for months, watching each army develop It offensive, and carry out its pre paratory attack underground and on the surface and In the air. Ceiapared WHh Mexico. Finally, from thl mass of detail they have, evolved new plans contain ing the. best points' of both systems, thus making the newest army on the western front doubly formidable to the Germans. Compared to General Pershing's present operations, last year's activity In Mexico seema not only punitive but puny. A year ago today his line of communication stretched over 200-odd miles of desert. Today It reaches 3,000 miles across the Atlantic, burdened with traffic a thousandfold greater than ever went Into Chihuahua. British and French army officers were astonished when they learned the number of correspondents ac credited to the American front. The number announced by Major Fred erlck Palmer fourteen Is greater than the number of correspondent at both the British and French fronts. Old Campaigners Want Inbllelty. Old campaigners, however, vouch for the wisdom of such a big press camp. A British veteran said to a correspondent: "If we had had that many correspondents In Mesopotamia we never would have had to enduro such sufferings, and there never would have been a scandal about the high command which allowed bed conditions to go unremedied. Your people will know what's going on- and if there room for Improvement they'll force Immediate action. The white light of publicity will not in jure the prospects of your success on the western front." Big Supply Contracts Let. PARIS, July 13. Some Idea of the tremendous supplies which will be needed to keep Pershing's Sammies In good health and fighting strength was Indicated by announcements of the American headquarters today of con tracts let. It was stated thst the largest dock firm In the United States had contracted to build dockage space for 1,000,000 men and 00,000 tons of supplies dally. All machinery and all derricks for this great wharf plan will be transported from the United States. In addition. General Pershing's ex perts have already ordered 125 miles of four-Inch pipe. 270.000 shovels 6,000 each month until this number Is reached 300,000 picks, sixty steam rollers and 300,000,000 board feet of lumber monthly from French forest.

NEWWAR Mens AGAINS OCHES IIS THE FODDERLAND CectTtdati Oi7' BrJoba't.JfaCuidiaoBj EUROPEAN WAR NEWS SUMMARY Late reports .from both Prtrograd and Vienna Indicate that the Austrian made a determined attempt to stem the victorious advance of the Russian forces pf General Korniloff at the Lomnlea river, in southern Gallcia, southwest of Halicz. The Austrians, who had re treated to the Lomnlea positions, which were of great strength, turned and faced their pursuers and gave battle to save the fortified city of Kalusz. Kalusz was the Austrian base sonth of the Dniester river in this region, and blocked further advance of the Russians along the rail road to Dolina andjhence northward to StryL the latter town being , on the route to Lemberg from the south. Apparently a battle of major proportions occurred at Kalusz, and the Austrians were fairly de feated. Again they withdrew, and the Russians have pressed on to the west bank of the Lomnica. To the southward of this region, between the foothills of the Carpathians and the upper reaches of the Lomnlea, the Austrians hare, for the time being at least, been more successful. The moun tainous county made this terrain more easily defended, and, according to the official Russian report, the progress of General KornilofTs troops here, on the Grabovka-Rossina-Krivicz line, has been impeded. Berlin officially reports spirited artillery fire on the northern end of the Russian line. In the sectors of Riga, Drinsk, and Smorgon and, for the first time, records artillery fighting also near Barono ritchl, which is some seventy miles north of the Pinsk and Pripet marsh area. The chief activity reported from the front in France and Flanders In the past twenty-four hours was along the line held by the Belgians, principally in the Dixmude sector, southeast of the Nleuport line, where the British were recently driven back to the Yser canal. Ger man artillery shelled the Belgian positions and military roads, and raids were attempted, but were driven off. On the British front to the southward, in the Arras area, the Germans delivered an attack at Monchy Les Preux and succeeded in capturing some British advanced posts. West of Queant, southeast of Arras, a German attacking party was driven off. The British, during the night, made successful raids near Hulluch and Ypres. On the Aisne and Champagne fronts, only artillery actirityis re ported, chiefly at the western end of the Chemin des Dames and south of Moronvilliers respectively.
