'May Break Out This
| German Counter Attack^
Fails and Prisoners Are i
External pressure to force the German
government to net forth its war
nimB clearly having failed on the surface.
internal conditions within the
empire threaten to compel the issuance
of a full statement of German
aims. What the German leaders want
if they are succcbsiu! will he discussed
in the Reichstag this week.
The Imperial Chancellor, L>1\ Mich-1
sells is finding the way as difficult
as it was for his predecessor, BethannHollweg,
and he must now face the
critics of the government in the Reichrtag.
Whether as have lieen charged,
the bureaucracy and the army have
been furthering the pan-German
scheme of annexation and indemnity
is expected to be brought out in the
Reichstag debate.
, Recent reports have shown that the
leellng between Call-Germans and the
Reichstag majority lias been In coming
mors intense, some Socialist members
of the Reichstag having guile so far as
to charge that tin- agitation of the
Tan-Germans is dividing the German
people into two camps on the question j
of the alms of the war.
Approaching cold weather ou the
western front Is forecast :;i liie appearance
of snow in the Vosges mountains.
Ill Flanders the weather has been most
unfavorable, the last two days, but
official reports mention no let up in
the violent artillcrv duel. The British
are probably using the new positions
won last week as h base from
which to harress the Germans in the
lowlands between the I'asscfienduoleGbeluvelt
ridge and the lloulers-Menin
railroad in preparation for a new btrike
iu the plan to outflank German positions
in the north. Unofficial reports
from Stockholm say strong German
naval forces have been sighted in the
Wajtic sea off the. J>iiiis|i and Swedish
coast; bound probably for the Gulf of
Finland for a drive on Ilclslngfors, Kinland
and Petrograd. The Germans
are said to be concentrating a large
force Including mine sweepers and
transports and plan to attack Helsingfnrs
by land and sea.
Today's British official statement
indicates no let up in the intense urtil- j
lery duel in Flanders. The detfiiiie ue /
velopment reported was the launching '
of the expected counter action by the
Germans. The attack, delivereu after
a heavy barrage had been laid down
was made oast of Polygon woods

inak, a Russian, was placed behind
the bars on a charge of resisting an
officer. It appears that on Sunday
night Sum Orloff was arrested at
Montana Mines bv Constable Bolyard
o na charge of being a slacker; it
being claimed that bo is of the military
age, but failed to register. When
Bolyard made an effort to get Orloff
it is alleged that Kalinak jumped into
the fight and made it interesting for
the constable lor a time. The officer
by the use of his mace brought the
men to time.
This morning Kalinak came to the
county jail to look after his fellow
countryman and without ceremony
Jailer T. V. Buckley just snapped the
door behind him and he was in the
same tolls as Orloff. Kalinak is a
strapping big fellow and it is said
that the officer got his man in time
for they might have been a riot on
in the Russian camp if he had tarried
very long.
Kalinak will be prosecuted for interfering
with an officer in the discharge
of his duty.
Charged for making an effort to
evade military service will be brought
against. Orloff before United States
Commissioner J. P. Kirbv.

Hundreds Stood in the Cold,
Saturday to Watch the
Game Played. ? .
Baseball sentiment In this town
seems to favor the Chicago team. At
all events the way the two first games
of the World's series ended gave a
large amount of satisfaction here.
Quite a large crowd saw the Saturday
game as it was flashed on the bulletin
board play by play by The West
Virginian-Times special world series
service. As the day was rather raw,
the size of the crowd indicated that
the interest in baseball is as keen
here this year as ever.
Yesterday the game was not played
on board, but so that the fans who
just could not wait unti IThe Times
came out this morning with the details
would be able to get the news
a running story of the game was posted
on the windows of The Times office
as fast as it came over the wire.
There was always a large and eagerly
interest crowd in front of the bulletin
nil through the game.
Tomorrow when the series 1r resumed
with the game In New York
the electric board service -will be
again given. The news for this service
comes over the longest continuous
telegraphic circuit ever operated for
any other than experimental purposes.
Approximately SCO daily newspapers
which take the leased wire ser- j
vice were connected directly with j
White Sox Park during the first two
days and the same eonnections will be
made for the New York games. Altogether
about 2R.OOO miles of wire
constituted the circuit, which extends
from Bangor. Me., to San Diego. Cal.;
and from Galveston Tex., to Duluth,
In addition to the newspapers served,
the lengthy baseball wire was
extended to several army cantonments.
where It was manned by former
operators of the Associated Press
who are in the national service. Thus
the men of the National Guard and
the new National Army received their
