Bryan & Robinson, Jewelers I LOCAL AGENTS LATEST EUROPEAN WAR NEWS Diplomatic relations between France and Austria have b6en broken and the Ambassadors have left the capitals. The French Foreign Office, in a statement, says the initiative was taken by France because Austrian troops were aiding the Germans. The French are advancing in Alsace, but against what opposi tion is not known. The Germans occupy the city of Liege, while the Belgian troops hold the forts. The Bel gian officials' view is that the sit uation is quite , satisfactory. Strong forces guard all the ap proaches to Brussels. The North Sea is aga:n closed to the fishing fleets, which is re garded as significant in view of the fact that there are large British and German fleets in that water. The German cruiser Karls ruhe, which arrived at San Juan, Porto Rico, reported an engage ment Friday night off the Baha mas with four British and French cruisers. The French Government for bids the publication of the French' casualities list, so that Germans may not know the movement of the French troops. All Germans and Austrians in Belgium must declare themsel ves within twenty-four hours or they will be arrested as spies. Complete revolution in meth ods of cotton marketing was proposed before the House Ag ricultural Committee as a means of relief from depression threat ened by the closing of foreign markets during the European war.
