New Blow at Polish Cap
ital Preceded by Ter
rific Big Gun Fire
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-!
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.
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.

CHICAGO, June 28—William Jen
nings Bryan did not address the Sons
of Teutons here tonight on the sub
ject of peace, as had been planned.
G. F. Hummel, chairman of the
committee on arrangements, called
off the meeting after telegraphing
Mr. Bryan at New York, suggesting
that the topic of the address be
changed from "peace" to "the ex
portation of ammunition from this
country to Europe." Mr. Bryan said
he would discuss the subject when he
arrived in Chicago.
In the meantime it was learned that
the hall which was desired for the
mass meeting could not be obtained,
and the meeting was abandoned for
the present.
Mr. Bryan may address the organ
ization when he returns to Chicago
later in the summer. Chairman Hum
mel! and members qf committee
on arrangements met Mr. Brvan
the railway station upon his arrival at
2 o'clock and explained that the profe
posed meeting had been called off.
Mr. Bryan declined to discuss the
action of the committee in calling off
the meeting, further than to say that
it was due to a misunderstanding. He
referred all questioners to inf""'-'
of the committee. Mr. Bryan left 'or
his home at Lincoln, Neb., this eve
ning, where he will remain a few days
before going to San Francisco and Se
attle, where he has a number of speak
ing engagements beginning July 5.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 28.—"Child

by the United States children's bureau
with talks to mothers on the care of
Dr. J. Morris Siemens, in charge of
the mothers' clinic at the University
of California hospital, said:
"Twilight sleep is in the experi

successfully to about 50 mothers, but
in each case a careful examination

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

Action of United States Authorities Will

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.

sympathizers on this side
of the border. Tonight he is de

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
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.

Late last night federal officials

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

The release of the Mexican leaders
caused nearly as great a stir in Mexi

news of their detention earlier today.
Immediately there was a revival of
rumors relative to the new revolution

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

verbal note presented at the state de

asserted that the Ausro-Hungarian
posal authorities had refused to re

see, even when bearing the official
seal of the cardinal secretary of state.
The department also was informed
that at the outset of the war between
Italy and Austria-Hungary, the Italian
government took steps to insure free
