boys jvere carried down stream.
Another boy, by the name of Rice,

CHICAGO,- Dec. 23.?The expulsion
of Jews from Jaffa was accompanied by
many acts of barbarism and robbery
according to a special cablegram from
Cairo, Egypt, to the Chicago Dally
News today. The story says that COO
refugee Jews from Jaffa have Just ar
rived at Alexandria on the Italian
steamer Vicencio Florio, and adds:
"Thursday afternoon Bedouin police
raided the ghetto (at Jaffa), arrested
1,600 persons and prove them at the
point of the bayonet to the quay; Here
the Fiorio was forced to receive as
many of them as could be crowded
aboard. Scenes attending this opera
tion were heartrending. Harbor po
llco and boatmen stolo all the watches
and money the refugees were carrying.
SECRETARY GARRISON AGREES
WITH CONGRESSMAN GARD
NER ON MANY POINTS.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 23.?Repre
sentative Gardner, of Massachusetts,
whose inquiry resolution is indirectly
responsible for much of the recent
discussion concerning the condition
the army and navy, today said he was
"ready to step back into the ranks as
a private" Just as soon as the country
was advised concerning the national
defenses and Congress decided to
remedy the most flagrant weaknesses.
Mr. Gardner appeared to get great
satisfaction from the announcement
mado several days ago to the effect
that Secretary of War Garrison had
assembled a board of army experts
to report to him on the condition of
the coast defenses and to advise what
improvements should bo mado In the
forts which would be expected to pro
tect the nation from naval attacks.
Garrison to Present Report.
Secretary Garrison, has this report
under consideration and it is under
stood he intends to lay it beforo the
House committee for its guidance
when he appears as a witness after
the holidays.
Representative Gardner believes
that tills report, which was prepared
by tlie army experts, will be of great
valuo to Congress and the country
at large, and he Is prepared to ac
cept It at is face value as an embodi
ment of the army's needs as far as
coast defenses are concerned.
air. Gardner has asked Secretary
Garrison to have prepared for liim a
mass of figures showing the condi
tion of various branches of the army.
He was advised that his requests
would be considered and that his re
quest would be-granted in the event
that the department did not decide
that the information was of a confi
dential nature.
Ono of the most notable facts in con
nection with Mr. Gardner's activities
in the interest of an Increase in army
and navy efficiency Is the manner in
which Secretary Garrison and Mr.
Gardner have agreed on many points
which they disagreed upon when the
resolution of inquiry was introduced.
Mr. Gardner^ original communica
tions to Mr. Garrison were of a "pep
pery" nature ,and they were answer
ed with similar replies. Further ac
quaintance between the Republican
Congressman and the Democratic
War Secretary has resulted In a gen
eral understanding.

BERLIN, Dec. 23.?(By wireless to

"The order of General Joffre for ait

the allies in the west were about tr>

ever, their attempts everywhere have
failed and the situation seems little

"An army headquarters report con
cerning the operations in the east
makes mention of the continuation of
an attack, but whether this is being
made against the Russian rear guard
or the Russian main army cannot be
stated.
"The situation In West Galicia is
clearer. The Russians there are hold
ing the east bank of the Dunajoc riv
er to Tuchow and another line extends
southeastward past Krosno. Heavy
fighting Is proceeding on both these
lines and also in tho Lupkow Pass.
"A dispatch from Budapest says
the Austrians are preparing a final
blow against the Servians, but gives
no intimation of what form it will
take.
"The newspapers here today pub
lish an unofficial'statement from head
quarters in answer to the official
French war bulletin of December IS.
The French report asserted tha sev
eral trenches had been taken nt
Auchy, La Bassee, St. Laurent and
