London, Dec 10, 10:15 p. m.Tho Anglo-French forces have commenced a general retirement from Southern Serbia and It i suggested that their destination Is the region of Saloniki. This retirement was necessitated, not only by tho superior forces which the Bulgarians and Germans opposed to the allies, hut to a threat of an out flanking movement from PetrovoU, where the Bulgarians have arrived, and also to danger to their lino of communication from Bulgarian irreg ulars who had crossed tho Grcok frontier. Both the British and the French forces who are well supplied with ar tillery and machine guns, engaged in a four-day battle in which they in flicted heavy losses on the Bulgar ians who fought with desperation and the greatest courage. Attack after at tack was repulsed but the Bulgarians still came on and each evening the allies fell back to new positions where events of the day before were re peated. Will Germans Follow? The question now arises whether the Bulgarians and Germans will fol low tho allies across the Greek fron tier and what attitude the Greek gov ernment will adopt. King Constan tine has promised to use his army to protect the retiring force if they un dertake to re-embark and has shown his good faith by preventing Bulgar ian raiding bands from destroying the allies' communications, but it is doubt ful whether tho allies will agree to evacuate Saloniki, which under the guns of their ships would provide a good defensive position and a base from which other operations could be undertaken. It is on this point that negotiations between Greece and the culente allies is now proceeding and the feeling here, at Paris and Rome is gaining in the following paragraph printed in largo type by the Evening Star: "The moment is approaching when .the Greek government must decide. The allies, now more than ever be fore require freedom of movement at Saloniki." : OO COAST DEFENSE GUNS ON WHEELS New York, Dec. 10. Gigantic guns mounted on motor trucks or railway cars will probably be added to the country's coast defense system as a lesult of experiments now being made by army ordnance experts. It was learned today that a scheme is being worked out contemplating the estab lishment of mobile batteries to pro tect stretches of coast line not com manded by tho permanent fortifica tions built or to be recommended. Purt of the $S0,000,000 expenditure for coast defenses included in the admin istration program may be devoted to this work. The European war has demon strated that high-power guns can be used as mobile weapons, such guns as the German 42-centimeter howitzer having revolutionized land warfare by the easy reduction of forts believed Impregnable. It is proposed to adapt this lesson to American coast defense by linking up permanent works with well ballasted wagon roads or rail ways paralleling the coast line so that the heavy guns could be rushed to any threatened point not protected by the present harbor defensee. r i If JJ 1 WE'RE ! ?

The last day of the trial period for the Earl of Derby's recruiting plan open ed with reports from all parts of Lon don to tho effect that there was no diminution, but rather an increase, In recruiting, and all officers in charge reported excellent progress. Although single men are coming for ward in better proportions, married applicants seemed to predominate In many centers. Nearly all of the re cruiting stations kept open all night London, Dec. 10, 9 35 p. m. The rush of "last minute men" who de sire to escape tho stigma of being forced to Join the colors, if conscrip tion should be adopted, continued to day, the last day, but one of tho trial period for tho Earl of Derby's recruit ing plan. Lines formed at the re cruiting stations as early as 5 o'clock this morning and remained there all day. Announcement that there would be no extension of the time limit for tho test of tho volunteer system appar ently convinced many men of military fitness that the Earl of Derby was in earnest and caused them to flock to the stations. The scenes at tho re cruiting bureaus are entirely differ ent from those during Secretary Kitchener's regime. It is not a case of Inducing men to enlist as a result of appeals made by recruiting ser geants,' but rather of handling the applicants, who wait patiently in long lines, three or four abreast in the cold, blustery weather. At Trafal gar square only a small crowd of idlers stood around the base of the monument to hear the fervid appeals on behalf of king and country made by speakers. oo Mine stock To carrying on development work this company will sell a limited num ber of shares of Treasury stock at 10c per share for a few days only.

In a comprehensive and forceful ad dress before the Columbus chamber of commerce, he urged American busi ness men to mobilize their resources so the United States might bo pre pared to play a more important part in the world's affairs, and bring about Justice after the present war. The president spent eighteen hours in Columbus during which he Was ac tive every minute. His reception was enthusiastic and pleased him greatly. In addition to the chamber of com merce speech, he delivered an ad dress tonight before the commission on country and church life of tho fed eral council of the Church of Christ of America, shook hands with more than 7,000 people at a reception in the rotunda of the state capltol, spoke briefly to a large crowd from the steps of the capltol and took a long walk about the streets of Columbus. The entire city and many people from surrounding towns greeted him. Defends Mexican Policy. In the chamber of commerce ad dress the president defended his Mex ican policy, and said as long as he was president' nobody should "butt in" to alter the Mexicans' government for them; urged business men to pay more attention to foreign commerce and bo more self-reliant; demanded the restoration of the American mer chant marine; praised the new bank ing and currency law; and touched on the attitude of the United States toward the European war. "When the present great conflict in Europe is over, the world is going to wear a different aspect," Mr. Wil son declared. "I do not believe" there is going to be any patched up peace. I believe that thought ful men of ev ery country and of great sort will insist that when we get peace again we shall have guarantees that It will remain, and that the instrumentali ties of justlco shall be exalted above the instrumentalities of force. nn GREECE FEARS COAL FAMINE Grave Consequences Expected If Great Britain Prohibits Importations of Coal. London, Dec. 10, 11 a. m. Reuter's Athens correspondent telegraphs that on account of restrictions placed by Great Britain on tho foreign com merce of Greece, several steamship lines' contemplate suspension of busi ness.

Mil FARMERS 10 HI TO BM1 Brigham City, Dec. 10. The sugar beet growers of Wlllard Tiave finally decided to support the Utah-Idaho Su gar company, which is to erect a new factory on the east side of Bear river during the year 1916. For a time the Willard farmers held out in fa vor of the Amalgamated Sugar com pany of Ogden, owing to that company claiming Wlllard as Its territory. Officers of tho Amalgamated com pany met with the fanners of Willard during the week and promised to erect proper facilities for loading beets, but despite this offer the beet growers of Willard appointed a com mittee to procure contracts for the Utah-Idaho company. This means that the Amalgamated company has been turned down by the Willard farmers, and that hereafter the Og den company will receive no more beets from Boxelder county. oo ALLEGED MURDERER RETURNED TO UTAH Salt Lake,-Dec. 11.
