LONDON, Nov. --The admiralty
announces that there are certain Brit

Denmark, and prisoners are being
brought in. No further information
is available. It is unknown whether
the prisoners are from the raiders.
PARIS. Nov. 3-—The new autono
mous .army that is being organized
in France to fight on the western
front for the eventual freedom of an
independent Poland has just been
augmented by the enlistment of Poles
of the Russian brigades that for a
year and a half past have been figh
ing on the French front.
While the new Polish army will be
composed largely of Polish recruits
from the United States, the enlist
ment of these veterans of both the
Russian and French front is consider
ed of value.
In conjunction with the Polish vol
unteers who served during the first
three years of the war in the French
ranks, and who now form the first
troops of the autonomous Polish army,
these picked, trained and experienc
ed troops give the young Polish army
a solid military neucleus that is ex
pected to have influence in the organ
ization of the new army! There Rus
sian and Polish veterans, with three
years of actual warfare behind them,
will be used largely in drilling the
n ftw rc>/>pilUo
The enlistment in the new Polish
army of these contingents from the
Rusian brigades in France was done
with the full permission and sanction
of the new Russian provisional gov
ernment. All Russians of Polish ori
, gin or extraction were allowed their
own choice of either the Polish or
j Russian army for future service.
The voyage of these new Russian
| volunteers across France to the Po
lish camp where the new army is be
ing organized on an independent, au
tonomous basis, was a sort of trium
phal procession marked by nn inci
dent of the most striking Interest.
: The locomotive drawing the train
j flew the crimson and white flag of
reborn Poland, although the soldiers
| filling the cars wore the Russian tini
j torm in which they had come to
France together with the medals con
j firred upon them by the Czar, they
chattered in Polish and Polish colors
were pinned on their breasts.
At every station at which the train
stopped, enthusiastic crowds greeted
them. Then as the train came into a
large station in the central part of
France, strange cries were heard from
an opposite track of the railway.
Twenty German prisoners, all from
Posen who were employed in unload
ing freight cars yelled with surprise
as they beheld the train bearing thp
| White Eagle of Poland and the Po
lish national colors.
Their surprise turned into bewil
derment. as in answer to Ihelr cries,
there popped out of the windows of
, every car the heads of Russian sol
1 diers, wearing the caps of the Rus
sian army yet trimmed without ex
ception with the Polish colors. News
of the formation of the new autono
mous Polish army was given, and to a
man the Polish-German prisoners
; threw down their working utensils and
begged to be allowed to join tl.eir
brothers in arms for th4 independence
f'o Poland.
I It was only with the utmost dif
I ficulty that they were made to under
; stand that under international laws
! of war, they as prisoners, could not be
allowed to take up arms on French
j soil.

The Rag-Time Trio will play their
: regular dance tonight at Eagle hall.
