DEFEAT IN THE SENATE. Frankfort, Ky., Jan. M, Prospects of a renewed Statewide prohibition tight in the House loomed up in n state ment issued by W. M. Webb, of 1'aints ville, author of the amendment which carried that body at the IHI4 session. Webb, who is a Republican, says that the leading minoritv men will support the bill and that sufficient Democratic votes will be secured to pass the House. There is no chance of the amend ment being reported favorabU . It is iu the hands of the Constitutional Amendments Committee, a dripping wet body. If the gfJFI expect to biing the bill on the floor for a fight, they will have to stage a test battle to get it I nere. Webb's statement follows: "The advocates of Statewide prohi bition in the General Assembly are not defeated, nor have they abandoied hope of whining victory at this sessuo. Statements published in liquor con trolled papers, purporting to have bten made by dry leaders, have been garbled ana distorted Gallant Fight. "Our leaders in the Senate made a gallant light, aud had it uot been lor tne 'third house,' compose I of the so called leaders of the two political par ties, and the gigantic whisky lobby always found about the Capital during sessions of the Legislature, the bill woulu have passed by a safe majority. "Let it not be forgotten that a ma jority of the State Senators represent dry constituencies, aud that those Sen ators who voted against the will of their constituents will have a hard time in explaining. "The drys in the House have not giv en up hope. We propose to show the people of this Commonwealth where we stand on this question We will vin dicate ourselves by showing that we are not in the hands of an oligarchy at Frankfurt; but 1l1.it we represent a large majority of the peop.e of this Commonwealth who are demanding at our hands that we give them a vote 011 this question. "The right has just begun. We will pass it in the House withoiit a doubt Then it will go again to the Senate, where some of the beloved Senators can agaiu r x lIhiii their votes "Should we again fail in the Senate the campaign slogan in I9I7 should be: Keutucky is going dry. In this cam paign we will be brought face to face with the real issur, and the result will be an nvsrwhollglng majority (of t tie great cause."

Another Boppolta raid 011 Paris, Is In progress, the awe ond within twenty-four hours. De fails of the casualties and the limn age done in this second raid are not yet available. I'aris. .Ian. tl, An official report of the casualties in the first raid placed the number of killed at twenty three and of inj.ired at twenty-seven. The raid was not entirely unexpect ed as a Zeppelin was seen in the Epernay district, previously, undoubt edly making a trial excursion. The effect of the raid has been only to reproduce the effect of the former raid. There is no sign of panic, hut angry indignation is shown and de mands are made that each raid shall be answered by an aeroplane raid on a German town. Of the aeroplanes which arose at Le Bourget within twenty minutes of the alarm, not one got near enough to the Zeppelin to Are at it. The fact that only one Zeppelin par ticipated In the raida, leada to the conclusion that this was only a fore runner of other Zeppelins. A statement Issued by the Russian war office says the Russians captured near Erzei um, a party of Askarls and three machine guns. This indicates that while the Russians have not yet captured the Important Armenian city, as was unofficially reported several days ago, the main force of Grand Duke Nicholas is closely threatening the stronRhold, where the Turkish Caucasus army was recently driven. The Russian pursuit of the Turks south of Lake Urumiah, in Persia, con tinues, while westward of Uamadan. probably In the Kanavar region. Turkish attacks were repulsed. Minor successes are announced in south western Russia. The German advance in the sector west of Peronne, announced by Ber lin as including the village of Prise and 1,093 yards of French trencheB, has been extended, according to the official German statement, until it covers a front of 3,500 meters, to a depth of 1,000 meters. The offensive began about Nleuport and extended south about Neuville-St. Vaast and, finally to the district of Paronne. British troops were among the prisoners reported by the Germans The number of prisoners claimed by the German statement is seventeen officers and 1.270 men. The French are still fighting hard to regain the i osiflons lost in the NVuville sector. The new oillensive gives the Ger mans, as perhaps the mojt Import an! result so far, possession of Hill 1 10, between Souchcz aud Vimy, and Hill out beast of loos. The present attack hy the Germans on these positions is regarded as an anticipatory measure against a pos sible offensive hy the allies in this sector In the spring.
