Kun. The gate in question has been approved by twenty seven of thirty bituminous inspectors while three have not consented to its use because of control being different from what is required by the act of five years ago. in rendering his de cision Mr. Kun says "The reference in the portion of the act above quoted to the control of safety gates by the cage at the top and intermediate land ings" must be regarded merely as de scriptive of appliances and apparatus then known to be safe and efficient. It is in no sense a mandatory provi sion. To hold otherwise would put a handicap and bar on improvement.

STROUSE ||§P OUTER DEFENSES NOW THREATENED [Continued From First Page] r— on the Dniester. Making a stand, the Teutons finally brought the Russians to a halt. The break in the lines, however, has made a regrouping of the Teutonic forces necessary and this is now in progress. With rapid strides the Russians are forcing their way along the Dniester in Galicia in the direction of Halicz, considered one of the main outlying defenses of Lemberg on the south. General Letchitzky's army has al ready reached the Dniester to the south of Mariampol. a town only 8 miles southeast of Halicz. Likewise they are pressing toward Halicz fur-, ther north entering the town of Mon asterzyski on the Stanislau-Buchacz railroad, directly east of Halicz. Italians Spread Out Spreading out in fanlike forma tion from Gorizia the Italians are pres sing the Austri&ns to the east and southeast along a twelve-mile front. The principal thrust is apparently di rected southeast toward Triest with the probable object of forcing the Austrlans from their saient in the bend of the Isonzo south of Gorizia. French Bombarding Germans British pressure on the Somme front Is being continuously exerted against the Germans in the Bazentln-le-Petit and Pozieres regions, and General Haig's forces have made additional progress north of both these places, London announces. The French in the Somme region are evidently preparing for a new of fensive movement, as they are pour ing a destructive fire upon the German trenches north of the river. Austrian* Vainly Trying to Reform Shattered Lines By Associated Press Rome, via Pans, Aug. 11. The Importance of the Italian successes nreuhd Gorizia is b<=:C< ming more evi dent hourly. The battle is continuing behind the' city over a front about 12 miles long. The Austrlans have re treated along the railroad in the direction of Dornberg, eight miles southeast of Gorizia, and over the na tional highway to Schon Pas, six miles to the east, and are now at tempting to reform their front on a line extending from Vipaco to Tar i nova. Meanwhile the Austrians are at tempting to take the offensive at Monte Nero and various other points of the Italian front, but thus far have been unable to divert the Italians from their operations behind Gorizia. Popular enthusiasm is at high pitch throughout Italy. Congratulations are pouring in from all parts of the world to King Victor Emmanuel and General Cadorna. The king and the com mander-in-chief have been particu larly pleased by messages from Italians in New York and other parts of the United States. Letimbro Fired on U-Boat; Troops Believed on Board Amsterdam. Aug. 11, via London.— A semiofficial account of the sinking by a submarine recently of the Italian mail steamship Letimbro, received here to-day from Vienna, says the Italians fired on the submarine with two guns, and that there were troops on board. "After the submarine had fired a warning shot at a distance of 8.000 meters," the statement says, "the vessel opened fire from two guns at the stern and attempted to escape by zigzagging. The submarine pursued the steamship, replying to the fire without hitting the vessel, which had shown no flag. Later boats were lowered by the steamer. After ascer taining that no one remained on board the steamship was sunk by the sub marine. "Approaching the boats, the sub marine ascertained that of 30 persons In one boat. 20 wore khaki which con firms the suspicions of the submarine commander that he had sunk a vessel with troops on board." Deeds of Heroism in Lower Isonzo Action Many Rome. Aug. 10. 9.30 A. M., via Paris. Aug. 11, 12.30 A. M. —Latest reports shows that the lower Isonzo action is drawing to a close in its first stage with the list of Austrian prisoners growing. The number of men killed or wounded is large. From evidence arriving here the be lief prevails that the victory of the Italians was not due to the demoraliza tion of tho Austrians, as the fighting was the severest seen on this front. The Austrians contested every foot of the ground about Gorizia. even after the loss of the strategic points of AUGUST 11, 1916. Monte Sabotino and Monte San Michele. While the success of the Italians j undoubtedly was due largely to the ] new heavy artillery, which matched at last, after a year of waiting for their manufacture, the heavy 305 mil limetre Austrian guns, yet hand to hand fighting was appalling in fierce ness, bayonets, knives, bombs, cavalry swords, pistols and arms of every de scription being used. Personal deeds of heroism were plentiful, especially in connection with the Italian use of a new method for destroying barbed wire entanglements, involving the almost certain death of the soldier who plants the bomb for this purpose. The taking of Monte Sabotino, the key to Gorizla and the vast section sur rounding it, is regarded as the biggest feat In all the fighting in the lower Isonzo region.
