Italians to Avoid Germans.
Paris, Oct. 15. 8 a. m. While there
Is no doubt of Italian Intervention in
the Balkans, the Petit Journal Milan
correspondent says the question now
under consideration is how contact
can be avoided between the Italian
and German contingents if Italy'B
share "in the campaign comprises the
use of land forces, as no declaration
of war has been made on either side.
It is reported that this diplomatic dif
ficulty maybe overcome hy sending
the Italiansagalnst either the Turks
or the Bulgarians, or both.

mans are attacking in great force
near Passarowltza, which commands
tho Morava Valley, according to a
Nish dispatch to the Matin. The

Review of War Situation.
London, Oct. 15, 12:24 p. m. Mili
tary operations in the Neat; East are
once more holding chief place in the
interest of the public, which, as In
dicated by preBS comment Is not en
tirely satisfied with the plans made
by the entente powers for meeting the
lateBt offensive of their opponents.
Even papers like the Manchester
Guardian, which has been unswerv
ingly loyal in support of the foreign
office, express dissatisfaction with
the speech in the house of commons
on the Balkan situation yesterday of
Foreign Secretary Grey.
Actual military operations in the
Balkans show but little change since
the capture of Belgrade, except for
brief forays by Serbians and Bulgar
ians. Defending her action in declar
ing war, Bulgaria claims her neutral
I ity was violated by Serbia.
Official announcement that Serbia
had declared war on her neighbor
was made today.
The Serbians are clinging desper
ately to the heights above Belgrade,
waiting for assistance from their al
lies. Su'ch aid is expected soon, as
General Sarrail. commander of the ex
peditionary force, whose splendid de
fense of the Verdun district contrib
uted greatly to the victory of the al
lies on the Maine, has landed at Sa
lonikl. British Gain Ground.
On the western front the British
have gained considerable ground,
some of which they subsequently lost
under the German shell fire. Con
flicting claims concerning the posses
sion of Hill No. 70 were ended by the
war in "the house of commons that
the British official report had been
read incorrectly, in reality claiming
only the capture of the mining works
around this position.
Although admitting that the forces
of General Ivanoff have again been
hurled back across the Stripa river in
eastern Galicla, Petrograd asserts the
advantage still rests with the Rus
sians, who hold eight miles of the
east bank of the river, after actions
which have virtually separated the
Austro-German armies.
Violent Actions at Dvinsk.
'Violent actions continue on tho
Dvinsk front Tvith little relative
change in the positions of the con
tending armies.
Irritation is displayed by the press
at the failure of tho re-organized air
craft force for the defense of London
to bring down a single Zeppelin of the
squadron which attacked the capital
on Wednesday night Demands for
reprisals are increasing
Lists of casualties In the British
army published In newspapers here
during the first fifteen days of Octo
her show a total of 35,035 killed,
wounded or missing. Of these 1413
were officers.
Teutons Not Far From Danube.
A press dispatch from Nish to
Paris declares the Teutonic forces
have not progressed more than four
miles south of the Danube at any
point, while tho Bulgarians are being
held along the bordor.
Greece is being financed by tho en
tente allies to an extent- sufficient to
pay the expense of keeping her army
mobilized, according to an Athens'
dispatch to Milan. The sum of $6.
000,000 already has been advanced, it
is declared.

Dardanelles Expedition Hopeless.
Announcement of the great losses
of the British forces at tho Darda
nelles follows tho sensational speech
in the house of lords last night of
Lord Milferner who is said to have
characterized the expedition as hope
less. He asked for the withdrawal
of the troops from GallSpoli penin
sula and their transfer to some other
front. Lord Lansdowne responded for
the government that it was impossi
ble to give any promise that tho
troop's would continue In the Darda
nelles operations, or would ho with
drawn. The figures given out today do not
tell the full story of what it has cost
the allies to attempt to force the Dar
danelles. In addition to the British
casualties are the losses of the French,
concerning which no reliable informa
tion is available. The British total,
however, bears out dispatches from
correspondents on this point which
have described tho loss of life as
frightful. Turkish losses also have
been described as very heavy.

Explains to City Committee the Use of Tickets of Arrests, 111
Points Out Their Specific Purpose and Declares He Does tH
' Not Think There Is Anything Wrong With the Mm
Records Desk Sergeant Walter Wilson Also I H
Frankly Tells of Methods Employed. ' m 'lUlH
The committee appointed hy the
city board of commissioners to make
investigations respecting alleged mis
placed original entries of the city
police department for the latter part
of 'the year 1911, met this morning at
10 o'clock at the police station to be
gin its deliberations. The papers de
sired for examination not being avail
able, an adjournment was taken until
3 o'clock this afternoon.
Desk Sergeant and Jailer Hagbart
Andersen is custodian of the original
papers, but he could not be located
this morning. Acting Chief of Po
lice Charles PIncock sent out officers
to find Mr. Andersen but they were
unable to locate him up to llO,
when the adjournment was taken. It
was explained that Mr. Andersen
would not be on duty until 3 o'clock
in the afternoon and that. Inasmuch
as he had not been notified to pro
duce the books at any specified time,
would be difficult to determine just
where he might be during, the day up
to 3 o'clock.
The committee is composed of J. C.
Nye, former city commissioner; W. J.
Critcblow, former city recorder and
auditor, and William C. Howell, a
merchant Immediately after meet
ing at the police station, tho board
organized by selecting Mr. Nye chair
man and Mr. Critchlow secretary, the
motion" for the organization being
made by Mr. Howell. Before going to
the'police station the committee spent
a few moments in Mayor A. G. Fell's
office where they were Informally ad
vised of their duties.
PIncock a Good Witness.
While waiting for the papers, which
were said to be in the custody of Mr.
Andersen, the acting chief was ques
tioned briefly respecting the manner
of keeping record of arrests in the
department and th chief advised
them that the plan was simple and
comprehensive. He told the commit
tee that the department would aid in
every way possible in the investiga
tion "and that the officers would be
at the command of the committee
at any time.
"The desk sergeant," said "Mr. PIn
cock, "makes a record of arrests on
a small slip of paper by giving the
date of the arrest, the name of the
person, his age. address, occupation,
nativity, the charge preferred against
him, tho place of the arrest and the
officer who made it, by whom search
ed and what personal effects he had.
The final record on the slip shows
the time of the trial of tho party,
when released, the sencence and dis
position. This slip is kept on file
bv the desk sergeant but turned over
to the city attorney each day long
enough for him to draw his com
plaint against the party. I don't think
for a moment that there is anything
wrong with the records any more than
there may be a possibility of a slip
being lost or misplaced, the same as
in any other business place. We would
have "no record of money refunded, as
all the funds are turned over to tho
clerk of the municipal court every
How Bail Is Fixed.
"Bail is fixed by tho judge of the
municipal court, it being necessary
to call him by telephone in case of
arrests at night, and the desk ser
geant holds all ba41 money until he
has an opportunity to turn it over to
the clerk. In the latter part of 1911,
Desk Sergeant Hagbart Andersen was
appointed bail commissioner by Mayor
Glasmaun. as it was considered too
difficult to call the judge at night,
and, at the time of some of the gam
bling raids, Mr. Andersen fixed the
ball." , . , ,
Mr PIncock further explained, in
answer to questions by the committee
that the department had a "black
book" system used In cases where
only investigations were made, par
ticularly in felony cases, and that In
case it was learned that a party was
likely not guilty of au offonse, and lie
had been required to furnish ball, tho
ball monev was always refunded to
him and his receipt taken. These
uere cases. Mr. PIncock said, that did
not reach the clerk of the city court,
as no complaints were filed.
Desk Sergeant.
Desk Sergeant Walter Wilson stat--ed
to tho committee that he had act
ed iu tho capacity of desk sergeant
since June 1. 1911, and that he was
perfectly familiar with the mauner
of keeping the criminal records of
the department. Ho explained the
original entry system of that year
n,wi tnlrt how he preserved the slips
and made correct entries of them on
the court docket, or ledger,
"It would be an easy matter to find
out whother any of the slips were
missing, or whether the books were
not properly kept, as the clerk of the
municipal court always has a com
plete daily check on tho desk ser
geant The desk sergeant always
keeps a file of tho original slips and
is required to write them into the
ledger or docket. Tho clerk of the
court checks up on the desk ser
geants' records from tho data he has
respecting the history of the case in
court. When personal effects are tak
en from a prisoner, they are retained
by the desk sergeant and when an
order for the release of the man
comes from the court, or otherwise,
tho package contilning the valuables
is returned. Receipts are always tak
en from the parties when bail nioney
is returned but it has never been con
sidered necessary when personal ef
fects were returned."
A gentleman who haa been follow-
ing this mattor closely said that the 11 K
leport of J. W. Edmunds, the special iuH
auditor who was employed by the city ni !
commissioners to check up the Glas- EwifK
maim administration, disposed of the OhK
whole inaUer, so far as the Glasmann IiJH
administration was concerned, and K jjjK
the investigation now has something kvIH
to do with clearing the present ad- PtJlM
