New Blow at Polish Cap
ital Preceded by Ter rific Big Gun Fire RUSSIANS RETREAT Teutonic Forces Have Crossed the Dniester River and Have Driven the Rusians Some Mites Into the Hills— Concensus of English Opinion Is That Germany Intends to Press Her Eastern Victories in Endeavor to Sieze Warsaw and the Whole of the Vistula—Britons Believe That It Will Be a Long War, LONDON, June 27 (9:40 p. m.). — The Rusians are again retreating in Galicia, both to the north and south of Lemberg, and in Poland the Germans have launched another attack against Warsaw in the form of a drive from the north through Przasnysz. The new blow at the Polish capital was preced ed by a terrific artillery action . The fact is recorded by the Russians them selves, but it is too early to say whether it means a serious offensive, the first clash having developed a bay onet encounter, the result of which neither side records. Berlin and Vienna do not make ref erence to the conflict in this region, confining their statements to the Galician situation of which victories are claimed in various sectors from the Bessarabian frontier to Rawa Uus ka, north of Lemberg. What is more important, the Ger mans claim, that the Teuton forces have crosed the Dniester northwest of Halicz and have driven the Russians some miles into the hills. Not since the war began has the English public been so convinced that it will be a long one. Those who took this view months ago were called pes simists, but now it generally is ad mitted that the Russian armies must fight for months to overcome tremend ous disadvantages and in the mean .v . .. . .. , time the much heralded big general j movement on the western front must j be indefinitely postponed, while the j entent powers thoroughly reorganize their methods. While the campaign for munitions in England Is at its height, it must be assumed that Germany Is straining every fiber to the same end and call ing into play her inventive skill, so as to increase the deadly mechanisms of j war to offset the Inevitable drain on | her men. The present consensus opinion among military writers In! England is that Germany intends fur-1 ther to press her eastern victories t with another battering ram stroke to- j ward Warsaw In an endeavor to seize that city and the whole line of the Vis-! tula. The line of offensive now directed | from the Przasnysz region Is along the valleys of the Omulew and Orzyc, trib- j utaries of the River Narew, which j flows across north Poland and joins the bend of the Vistula above Warsaw. HEAVY RUSSIAN ATTACKS. BERLIN, .Tune 9 7.— (Via London, 11:1.5 p. m.)—Austro-German forces on the Bukowina front have had to resist heavy Russian attacks the last two days, but these assaults have been repulsed everywhere by the troons under Generals Pfianzer and Baltin, according to the Galician correspond ent of the Lokal Anzeiger. The Rus sians in this region are using artillery much more freely than at other points. The Austro-Hungarians and General von Linsingen's army have made fur ther advances on north bank of the Dniester, the correspondent says. He asserts the Russians succeeded In gaining ground temporarily at one point, but later were compelled to abandon these gains. At other points on the front the armies of Archduke Joseph Ferdinand, Field Marshal von Mackensen and General von Boehm-Ermolli are sys tematically working their way east ward. The heaviest resistance is be ing encountered around Halicz.

' WEEKATTHEFHR SAN FRANCISCO, June 28.—"Child welfare week" at the Panama-Pa cific exposition was ushered in today by the United States children's bureau with talks to mothers on the care of children. Dr. J. Morris Siemens, in charge of the mothers' clinic at the University of California hospital, said: "Twilight sleep is in the experi mental stage and should not bo ap plied broadly. We have employed it successfully to about 50 mothers, but in each case a careful examination preceded its administration." Dr. Henry D. Chapin of New York, declared ^hat mothers should nurse their offspring if they wished to bring up healthy children. "This is hard work," he added, "and if a wo man brings up a healthy child she has done the finest thing in life and should not be expected to do mucii else. I don't care much how she pets the baby. A woman who has a child is a creator. She is a madonna any way." Action of United States Authorities Will Have an Important Bearing on Mexican Developments. j j j EL PASO, June 27.—General Victoriano Huerta was released on $15,000 bond here tonight and Gen eral Pascual Orozco on $7,500 bonds. Charges of conspiracy to incite a revolution against a friendly country were filed against the accused by special agents of the^ department of justice. EL PASO, June toriano Huerta arrived in El Paso, cheered by hundreds of Mexican ref sympathizers on this side 5 of the border. Tonight he is de tained at Fort Bliss, a virtual, if not 27.—General Vic- . a formally accused prisoner of the department of justice of the govern ment whose flag, he as provisional president of Mexico, refused to sa lute. United States officials were si,eiit relative to future action pending the receipt of instructions from Washing ton. Observers, however, freely ex pressed the belief that today's action of United States authorities will have an important bearing on Mexican de velopments, if it does not effectively put an end to rumors of a new revo lutionary movement that have been current on the border for several months. Many were inclined to see in these events an 'indication that Washington remains firm in its atti tude, that Huerta's return to Mexico would not aid in adjusting the pres ent difficulties and might serve to complicate them. A public demonstration in Juarez about the hour Huerta's train was due to reach this city, ended as sud denly as it began. There were hur ried conferences among Mexican lead ers on both sides of the Rio Grande. Many guardedly admitted that Hu erta's detention was of the utmost im portance, but none would comment on its possible effect on Mexico. Americans were freer in their com ment. They reviewed the recent ac tivity along the border of the adher ents of the cientifico party in Mexico, including the disbursement of consiil erable sums of money for a variety of purposes, the discovery of machine guns and rifles in an El Paso ware house owned by a member of that party and the appearance of General Ynez Salazar in western Chihuahua. They recalled the activities of Gen erals Orozo Carava and Salazar in the anti-Madero revolution and their sub sequent service during the ! lucre i re gime. For several days there have been persistent reports that June 28 has been fixed as the day for far-reaching developments at Juarez in connection with the so-called third revolutions movement. Some observers professed to see a close relation between this movement and the arrival of General Huerta. They expressed the opinion that his detention had prevented such a consummation by removing the pos sibility of General Huerta's participa tion in such a movement, despite his declaration that he had no intention of attempting to cross into Mexico. Opponents of this theory, who re gard Huerta as one of the strongest men in Mexican public life in recent years, believe his detention may re sult In renewing a strong influence on Venustiano Carranza and Fran cisco Villa for the reasonable con duct of their governments.

He first main tained his innocence, but finally broke down and made a complete confession, according to Captain Homer E. Crooks of the detective department. McHenry, according to the police, admitted that he was with Thomas G. Forney, the Washington attorney a"' son-in-law of Mr. Schneider, at the time the attack was made. He de nied, however, that he had struck candy manufacturer with a hammer, as alleged by Forney in his statement, but declared that the hammer was in Forney's hand at the time.

Late last night federal officials learned that General Huerta was trav eling toward El Paso. Zack L. Cobb, collector of customs at El Paso, acting for the state department, assisted by Clifford Beckham, special agent of the department of justice, arranged to meet the train at Newman, N. M.» ac companied by a small force of federal officers and 5 cavalrymen r'roru F u t Bliss, under Col. George Morgan, the troops being used as an es? >rt and guard against disorders on the drive through the city. Huerta reached Newman at 6:40 a. m. and readily agreed to the request that he and General Orozco accompany them to the customs office in 21 Paso for a conference. The genera! was Informed that he was not being placed under arrest, but was to be give every courtesy as their guest on the drive to the city. In a brief chat with newspaper rep : resentatives, the general talked free ly on miscellaneous subjects, but de clined to discuss Mexican affairs. "I did net intend to enter Mexico," he said, in reply to one question. "Per haps I may return at some future time, but not in less than five years." Word of Huerta's arrival spread rap idly and in a short time the streets around the federal building were com pletely ammed with an excited, eager throng. Fearing possible disorders or injury to General Huerta, by enemies from Mexico, Mayor Lee secured per mission of federal and army authori ties to transfer Huerta and General Orozco to Fort Bliss during their de tention, where they were held in quar ters. 'Formal charges were filed against Huerta and Orozco in instructions from United States district attorney at San Antonil. The accused were taken before George liver, the United States com missioner, and their bond approved and their hearing fixed for Thursday, July 1. Surety was furnished by Ike and Frank Aldereto, May Moye and Rudolfo Cruz. Generals Huerta and Orozco were released at once from the brigade headquarters at Fort Bliss, where they had been detained since noon. General Huerta was driven to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fuentes. Orozco was taken to the home of friends. The release of the Mexican leaders caused nearly as great a stir in Mexi can and American circles as did the news of their detention earlier today. Immediately there was a revival of rumors relative to the new revolution ary movement, although Huerta reit erated his statement that he did not intend to attempt to enter M-jxico un til peace was restored. The general stated that he was her" merely to visit his daughter a r — days and greet old friends in El Paso. "I am on my way to Los Angeles and San Francisco," said he, "to visit the Pacific coast and see the Panama Pacific expos'tion. I lived in Oakland, Cal., about 20 years ago and have not visited the west coast of the United States since then, so I decided to make -the trip." The events In connection with the detention and release of Huerta and Orozco had a disquieting effect on the inhabitants of Juarez tonight.
