Ger man officers are reported to be acting as propagandists, organizers and mili tary Instructors. The Rome newspapers ask if. after the lesson of the Balkans, the. entente powers are going to allow themselves to be taken by surprise in Egypt. London, Dec. 16. —On the Macedon ian front there has set in a lull which well-informed observers at Athens be lieve will extend over the Greek elec tions of Sunday. The retirement of the Anglo-French forces has ended and they now occupy strong positions north of Saloniki, where thus far their opponents have made no effort to disturb them. The German forces probably would need some time to prepare for any assault on these positions, particular ly as light artillery and mountain guns would not suffice. There would be need of heavier guns, few of which, if any, seem to have yet arrived near the "ron tier. The entente capitals view with satis faction what is regarded as the mas terful manner in which the retreat was conducted and the comparatively small losses of the allies. It is be lieved much o. the credit for this achievement is due to the new co-or dination among the allies of which the j recent joint councils of war in France 'were only one manifestation.. Comment oil Retirement In London the retirement of Field Marshal Sir John French from com mand of the British forces in France temporarily overshadows other war news. The new commander-in-chief, Sir Douglas Haig. who is almost the youngest genera) in the British army, enters upon his duties with a high reputation. He has seen mdre hard fighting than any other general in the British army. It is reported in Paris that the stock of gold held by the Bank of France has reached the record figure of sl,- 000,000,000. Continue Pursuit The Austrians apparently are not slackening in their pursuit of those parts of the Serbian army that retired to Montenegro and of the Montenegrin forces co-operating with them. Berlin reports that Austro-Hungarian troops have penetrated as far as the vicinity of Bjelopolje, on the Lim river, about twenty miles west of the Serbian bor der and some forty miles northwest of Ipek. Reports from Athens state that a Serbian division escorting 18,000 Aus trian prisoners has arrived at Tirana and Elbassan, in Albania. Semiofficial advices from Rome last night indi cated that an expeditionary force had been landed in Albania, possibly to co-operate with the Serbians when they were ready to resume the offen sive. Haig Succeeds French in Command of British Army Forces in France | London, Dec. 16. —Lieutenant Gen eral Sir Douglas Haig has been ap pointed • to succeed Field Marshal Sir John French in command of the j British armies in France and Fland- I ers. 1 Second Change in High Command The removal of Sir John French is the second change in the high com mand of the allied armies since the war began. The first was the su ! pression of Grand Duke Nicholas as 1 commander-in-chief of the Russian armies after the retreat from Poland. While the retirement of Field Mar shall French is considerable of a sur prise there have been for some weeks —in fact ever since Lord Kitchener's mission to the Balkans and the con vening of the joint war councils In Paris—indications of a reorganiza tion of the Anglo-French armies. Thus General Joffre was made com mander-in-chief of the French armies in all the theaters of war, while re taining nominally at least immediate direction of the forces in France. The appointment, however, of Gen eral De Castelnau to succeed (Jeneral Foch, Joffre's intimate friend, as chief of staff, gave some color to re ports that Joffre's new honors were preliminary to his removal from com mand in the field. On the British side Field Marshal French probably has been the sub ject of less press criticism than any of the other allied commanders. In deed, however bitter th e discus sion in the daily press or Parliament, and while Lord Kitchener, the War Secretary, the General Staff and prac tically every member of the Cabinet has been blamed for so-called "blun ders" and "inaction," the name of Sir John French has, perhaps for cliivalric reasons, rarely been even mentioned. There has, however, been a strong under current of criticism, noticeable chiefly in the Influential British weeklies and in the magazines. The large amount of time which the Brit ish field commander spent in London, reports having It that he was In Eng land when the last allied offensive began, has caused considerable com ment and given rise to veiled accusa tions of negligence, and that he was clinging, against the views of his staff advisers, to a purely defensive pro gram for the million or more men, which the British army in France is now said to embrace.

Discontent Among Masses May Prolong Reichstag By Associated I'rcss London, Dec. 16.—"There Is every reason to believe that the German Reichstag will have to sit much longer than was expected in order to deal with the pressing discontent among the masses," says the Rotter dam correspondent of the Daily News. "In order to appease these clamor ings it will need to deal with no fewer than 130 resolutions all relating to the distribution of food, besides resolutions dealing with demands of better pay for the soldiers and sailors and better provision for the relief of war families." Asserts Representation of Circumstances Allows Numerous Doubts to Arise [Continued From First Page.] clearly give the actual circumstances upon which it relies. As can be easily recognized, the representation of the circumstances contained in the note allows numerous doubts and gives not at. all sufficient reason for blaming the commander of the submarine and the Austro-Hungarian government even if the representations prove correct In all points and judgment in the case is based on the most rigorous legal in terpretation. "The American government also omitted to indicate the persons to whose statements it refers and to whom it apparently believes it must attribute a higher degree of trust worthiness than to a commander of the imperial royal navy. Exchange of Opinions "As to the number, names and the details concerning Ihe fate of the American citizens who, in the critical moment, were aboard the above men tioned steamer, the note does not give I any explanation. But in view of the fact that the Washington cabinet now has given a positive declaration that at the above mentioned incidents sub jects of the United States came to grief, the Austro-Hungarian govern ment in principle is prepared to enter into an exchange of opinion with the American government. But in the first instance it must raise the question of why this government refrained from furidically motivating the demands slated in its note with regard to the special circumstances of the incrimi nating incident which are especially pointed out by the American govern ment and in the place of such moti vation mentioned an exchange of cor l respondence which It had with another government about another affair. Want Further Knowledge "The Austro-Hungarian government is the less able to follow the Wash ington cabinet in this unusual attitude, as it in no way possesses a knowledge of all the correspondence having refer ence to it. The Aust ro-Hungarian gov ernment also is not of the opinion that this knowledge could be sufficient for the present case, which, according to its own information, is materially dif ferent from the case or cases to which the American government apparently is referring. Therefore the Austro llungarian government must leave it to the Washington cabinet to draw up the individual legal maxims which the commander of the submarine is al leged to have violated when sinking the Ancona. Kxpresses Sympathy "The American government also thought it advisable to point out the attitude which the Berlin cabinet in the before mentioned exchange of cor respondence had taken. In the highly esteemed note the Austro-Hungarian government finds no support for this course. If the American government should have intended thereby to ex press an opinion as if a precedent ex ists for the present case, the Austro- Hungarian government, in order to prevent misunderstandings, must de clare that it, of course, must preserve full liberty to urge its own legal inter pretations during the discussion of the Ancona case." The government expresses to Am bassador Penfleld full sympathy for the victims of the Ancona sinking, says the correspondent. The other evening newspapers of London contain no editorial comment on the Austria nreply, but their head lines Indicate the trend of opinion. "Evasive pleading" is the Evening Standard's estimate. The Pall Hall Gazette's headline is "Audacious Re- i ply to the United States," and that ofl the Evening News "Austria Flouts America." J HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH STANDING ARMY OF MILLION MEN URGED BY WORKS California Senator Declares This Force Necessary to De fend U. S. Against Invasion LAND TRACTS FOR TROOPS Would Place Soldier-Settler at Work on Reforcstration and Irrigation By Associated Press Washington, Dec. 16. Senator Works, of California, told the Senate to-day that a standing army of one million men would be necessary to defend the United States against possi ble invasions and declared that the Pacific coast was completely at the mercy of Asiatic attack. Senator Works spoke on the sub ject of national defense but particu larly to propose as a test of the scheme of preparedness the creation of a mobile land force and military re serve of two hundred thousand men at a cost of $50,000,000 a vear for ten jears. The proposed enlisted men in civil and military reserve would be settled according to the Works' bill, with their families in comfortable five-acre tracts provided by the government, supple menting ten months of productive work at re-forestration, irrigation and flood prevention, with two months of ir.lltiary training each year. They would be soldier-settlers under control of the Secretary of Interior in times of peace and subject to orders of the war department in times of war. Diplomatic Relations Between Two Countries Are at Breaking Point [Continued From First Page.] ing of the Ancona by an Austrian sub marine with loss of American lives. From such part of the unofficial text as is contained in the news dispatches officials considered the reply vague in many respects, but they were not pre pared to decide whether that was caused by the translation. Will Refuse Exchange The suggestion for an exchange of opinions, the virtual request for a bill of particulars of the American com plaint against the action of the sub marine commander and the proposal for a discussion of the facts were clearly set forth, however, in the un official text, and officials of the State Department who have knowledge of its policy in the crisis unhesitatingly declared that all would be refused. It was made clear that the United States does not propose to enter into a diplo matic discussion which would have possibilities of being prolonged almost indefinitely. The outline of the reply was dis appointing because some American officials had been led to believe by pre dictions from Germanic quarters that it would be favorable, or at least would propose something which the United States could accept. As Secretary Lansing based the rep resentations in his note upon the offi cial statement of the Austrian ad miralty, American officials are at a loss to understand where there is much room for discussion or dispute of facts. Xo Chance for Discussion News from Vienna recently that the submarine which sunk the Ancona was missing led some officials to believe that a new element had been intro duced into the dispute which lias promise of carrying some weight. That point, however, seems to have been disregarded in Austria's answer so far as officials can judge from the un official text received here. American officials believed that, tak ing as a basis the official admission of the Austrian admiralty that the Ancona was shelled, torpedoed and sunk while passengers were still aboard, there would be little room for discussion of Secretary Lansing's con tention that the commander violated the principles of international law and humanity and that it was wanton slaughter of defenseless noneomba tants. Officials pointed out to-day that a thoroughly unsatisfactory and unre sponsive reply from Austria would brine? diplomatic relations between the two countries to a crisis because of the closing words of Secretary Lansing's note, which declared that "pood rela tions between the two countries rest upon a common regard for law and humanity," and that Austria, appre ciating the gravity of the case, "will accede to its (the United States) de mand promptly." Baron Zweidinek had no official dis patches from Vienna, but after read ing the news dispatches he went to the State Department and conferred j with Secretary Lansing. Previously the baron had inquired what the at titude of the United States would be toward an unacceptable reply. To-day, on the basis of the news dispatches, the charge and the secretary discussed the situation informally. nURI.IV LACKS INTEREST Berlin, Dec. 16. (Via London, 11:06 A. M. —The transcripe of the Austro-Hungarian reply to the note from the United States regarding the Ancona case reached Berlin so late that only a part of the morning newspapers were able to print it. A general lack of interest in the mat ter was apparent. Austrian Admiralty Is ' Opposed to Any Disavowal of Sinking of the Ancona By Associated Press Vianna, Dec. 16. (By courier to Berlin via London). The Austro- Hungarian Admiralty is entirely op posed to any disavowal of the course of the submarine commander who was responsible for the sinking of the Italian steamer Ancona. On the contrary, it approves his conduct fully and declares that he would have been considered as hav ing failed to perform his duty if he had allowed the Ancona to escape. The Admiralty says: It appears clearly from his report that his ship was in danger—indeed, in double danger. First, from the fact that an enemy boat was approaching on a line that threatened to cut off his retreat, and the enemy ship and the Ancona could have established his radius of action J and could have set a torpedoboat i tlotilla on him and, Second, There was danger of the | Ancona escaping, which, according to his Instructions, was to be prevented in all circumstances. Hence, the conduct of the com mander, much as the loss of innocent lives must be regretted and deplored, cannot be disapproved. The Badle Player, superior In tone, action, pumping.

JITNEY MEASURE | Provision to Include the Type of Car to Be Adopted Taxicabs may be regulated by the I new jitney ordinance after all. j Harrisburg's jitney regulations were | drafted from an ordinance in force in ! Philadelphia. The Quaker City meas j ure contained a provisional clause that exempted "taxis" from the jitney re j strictions. While some question was j raised as to the propriety of retaining i this rather discriminatory provision in this city's jitney ordinance the j wording has not yet been changed, j The clause in question exempts mo l tor vehicles, etc., which are "rented or hired from a fixed stand approved i by Council or from a public or pri vate garage." Ma.v Change Ordinance j "While I can't say that, this part of j the ordinance will be stricken out," j said Commissioner W. H.

I The provision requiring the interior of Jitneys to be lighted during the night—from half hour after sunset to half hour after sunrise—was stricken out, because, as one Commissioner put it. Council didn't want to make the ordinance too burdensome for the jitney owners. "Some owners say they couldn't af ford to keep the interiors lighted," said the Councilman. "Others declared that much of the lucrative part of their business was confined to the summer evenings when passengers wanted to ride with the car top down. These passengers wouldn't ride if the cars were lighted."
