B. AjjeccWlV «.«.
Three points stand out in the news of
the great war. In Flanders the Ger
mans, undaunted by past failures to
break through to the Straits of Dover,
have launched their expected new at
tack. regsrriec by the allies as their
supreme effort In Russian Poland the
immeuse armies of the Russian Emperor
axe pushing forward with surprising
speed, threa*?rr.ngs the Germans on
Uoire soil. From Tokio comes the re
port that ? Japanese army may be sent
"O the west to take its part with the
British. French anci Belgians in the
struggles on he battlefields of Europe
Military observers agTee that the
war has entered npon a crucial stage
r.ud that the next week may mark a
definite turn in the course of events.
In French opinion the Germans must
either win then way to the English
v hatmel or fall back. For that reason
particular interest attached to to-dav s
official French statement, which indi
cated the beginning of the onslaught
for which the Germans have been pre
paring duraig the lull of the last few
days.
Fresh troops and new gnus front the
Krnpp works have been rushed to the
ime of battle from Dixmude southward
across the French border to Arras.
The. Germans have struck their Srst
blows at Dixmude and in the region of
Ypres. and the French War Office an
nounces that their attacks have been
repulsed.
Slow progress for the allies along the
greater part of the line from Dixmude
to the Lys is claimed by the French.
Over the remainder of the disputed ter
ritory across France the situation has
not changed materially, although the
French report that New German at
tacks in Alsace have been checked.
The rapid clearing of Germans from
Russia Poland has lent to the eastern
campaign a decree of interest no less
than that which attaches to the fight
ing along the west. Official reports from
Petrofrad indicate that the vast Rus
sian military organization is at least
under way i n full force, and that the
German and Austrian armies are being
opposed with enormous Russian forces.
Berlin admits that the Russians are
new well beyond the river Warthe,
which roughly marks the eastern bound
ary of Germany.
The Russian advance unless checked
may have an important bearing upon
the aghtiug in tiie west possiblv com
pelling Germany to withdraw "troops
irotn Fraace and Belgium. It is suggest
ed. however, that Eussia may delay her
rorward movement to accomplish her
long ciler.shed purpose of swinging
down to the B sphorus.'
No developments of first importance
are reported in the near east. The Bus
s:an general staff m Caucasia announces
•hat a Turkish attars on the Russian
position at Koprakelu was repulsed with
;:eavy losses for the enemy. The Rus
sian B.ack Sea flee: has renewed bom-
of towns along the coast of
Asia Minor.
The suggestion that Japan s?ud an
army to Europe has not yet taken
tangible jonn. but Tofcio reports that
*.'.e idea is attracting increasing atten
tion aud finds support in military cir
cles. The sending "of a Japanese army
sn the west would be a movement with
out precedent and one which would em
phasize the extent of the conflict. Into
it already have been drawn Turkos
from Africa and the dark skinned sol
diers of India. The Panama canal may
be put to the usages of war for the
first time should reports which reached
New York to-day prove true. Seven
British warships were said to be on
their way to the canal presumably pro
ceeding to the Pacific coast of South
America to avenge the defeat of the
British fleet of cruisers by German war
ships.
American military observers, who
thus far have been unable to view the
''ghting. may now have a glimpse of the
war. The French War office has relax
:d Its strict orders and will permit ob
servers from neutral countries to go to
the front.

Ralph O. Witmer. 9
Years Old. Supposed
at First to Have Es
caped Serious Hurts
ACCIDENT WAS
ON LAST FRIDAY
______
He Was in Car That Crashed With An
other at Seventeenth and North
Streets—lnternal Wounds Develop
ed Into Fatal Peritonitis
Ralph O. Witmer. 9 years old, son of
Mr. and Mrs. George B. Witmer, 905
South Twenty and One-half street, died
at his home last evening from peri
tonitis as the result of injuries re
ceived in the automobile accident at
Seventeenth and North streets last Fri
day evening in which several persons
were injured. He was bruised about the
abdomen but it was not believed at the
; time of the accident that his injuries
were dangerous. Subsequently, how
-1 ever, signs of serious internal injuries
became apparent.
The boy was riding in the tonneau of
a touring car driven by Edward K. Mil
ler, a railroad brakeman, of 2t4.> North
Fifth street. The Miller machine was
going out Seventeenth street When an-
I other car was going out North street,
driven by Samuel 0. Morrow, of 19.»1
Rriggs street. The cars came together
at the intersection of the streets. The
Miller machine then struck a telegraph
pole.
It is believed that the Witmer boy
was hur 1 ell against the front seat of
the machine and received his internal
injuries in that way. He was not
thrown from the i**r, according to liar
\ev Miller, brother of the driver, who
took Witmer to a house nearby and la
ter to tho Witmer home. The boy com
plained then of pain but was able to
sit up. He received immediate medi
cal attention.
Helen and Catherine Witmer. sisters
of the boy. were also in the machine,
but received only slight bruises and
lacerations due to flying glass. Morrow
received more painful injuries from
whicJi ti£ is recovering in the Harris
burg Hospital.
Witnter's death occurred at 6 o'clock
iast evening and Coroner Eekiqger was
notified. He has ordered an inquest to
be heid in his office on Thursday even
ing.
Funeral services will be held Wed
nesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the
home of his parents. The Rev. E. Vic
tor Roland, pastor of the Lutheran
Church of the Redeemer, will officiate.

According to the police record he
