S *BBSEBSSSSESESEEEZL LATE WAR NEWS SUMMARY Continued From First Pace. in the west, up to February 4, including killed, wounded r.nd missing, were ap proximately 104,004) men. Ambassador Page made a report to Washington on the use of the American flag by the steamship Lusitania. Mr. Page has received no report from tho British government and bases his com munication on the stories of American passengers on the Lusitania to members of the staff of the American embassy. The Oerman attack in Central Po land thus far has failed to make a gap In the Russian lines which would open the way to Warsaw and apparently the only result of the battle has been heavy losses on both sides. Petrograd has'an nounced the capture of several Oerman positions, but the general alignment of the opposing armies has not been changed materially. Minor victories there and In Northern Poland are re ported by the Russian War Office to day. There is no slackening of activity in the Carpathians, where the Austrlans, assisted by German reinforcements, are struggling with the Russians for mas tery of the mountain passes which give access to northern Hungary. Important successes of the Russians in several en gagements are announced officially' at Petrograd. It is said that Austrian at tacks broke down and that in addition to inflicting heavy losses on their oppo nents, the Russians captured 2,700 pris oners. A private dispatch from Nlsh, Servia, describes a battle between Rumanian and Austrian troops which is said to have resulted from Austrian invasion of Rumanian soil, in the direction of an important strategic position which con trols the only Servian position on the Danube permitting communication with Rumania. According to this dispatch the Austrlans were defeated and driv en back. There is no confirmation, how ever, of the Nish report. Tho Harrisburg Polyclinic Dispensary will be oipen daily except Sunday at 2 p. in., at its new location, Front, anil Harris streets, for the free treatment of the worthy poor. RUSSIANS IN PURSUIT JF AUSTRIANS Continued From First Pass, ing in the direction of .Bolimow from Zemiary. The infantry was compelled to flee, abandoning their artillery upon the highway. Hard Fighting in Carpathians ''ln the Carpathians hard lighting continues. Our troops broke down the enemy's resistance at three fortified positions near Mezolaborcz and pur sued the retreating enemy several versts, taking two cannon and five ma chine guns and capturing the command ant of the Third Honveds, 47 officers and 2,516 men. "North of Uzsok Pass, near Lutow iskow', the enemy was forced to retreat. Our troops occupied his trenches, taking three machine guns and many prison ers. "The attacks of the enemy who crossed the Tukholka and Beskid passes on February 5 were repulsed with heavy losses for the enemy, who was forced into a retreat. "On the Black sea our torpedo boat destroyers have bombarded Chappe. The cruiser Breslau, which has arrived at Batum, fired twenty shots without results at our destroyers maneuvering in those waters. After two shots fro'u tho fortress the Breslau steamed away.'' The Long-heralded Offensive Warsaw, Russian Poland, Feb. 8, Via London, 1.45 P. M. —The reaction which followed t'he cessation of the fierce German aggressive in the region of Humin and the transfer of German troops northward to initiate a nKw de fense in the East Prussian country i which lies between Tilsit, Gumbinnen and Lipno has provided the Russian forces in Poland, in the opinion of Rus- observers, with an oppor tunity for the long-heralded offensive. Kver since the German* attack on Borjimow, whiah had its climax Thurs day, the number of German troops be tween the junction of the Bzura river and Bolimow has been decreasing. Fol lowing their failt re to make material headway against the Russian line which protected Huininan and Borjimow, the Germans moved their attack to the right bank of the Vistula, northwest, of Warsaw, between Lipno and Sierpac. This offensive, however, was not com parable in intensity to the former, and it evidently was only an interlude to mask an important transfer of German troops in the direction of Rast Prussia. New Russian Move Successful? The new Russian advance, according to the latest and most reliable informa tion«reaching Warsaw, already has been successful between the Bzura junction and Vitkovitze, where they have taken a number of German trenches and started the enemy upon a precipitate re treat, in which the Germans left a large number of pieces of artillery be j hind them. Russian military observers in Poland j find in the disorder and disorganization evidenced in this German retreat in creasing proof of what they call the weakening of the German morale. Although it is expected here that the Russian offensive will now extend over the whole, Polish front, even the most sanguine do not look for any rapid progress in the resumption of the aggressive, since the Russians have de tailed information of elaborate Ger man fortifications extending from tho Vistula-south to Skierniewice and Lav ka. Tho general concensus of military | opinion in Warsaw to-day, however, is j that the Ruesians will retake westorn I Poland in the early spring. \ Great tribute is paid here to the con tinued mobility shown by the German ' forces in their lightning changes of front. In the recent transfer to east Prussia the Germans made use of its enormous number of automobiles for moving their soldiers. They are in pos session of 30,000 motor cars, each ac commodating 20 men with food and ammunition and capable of a speed of 16 miles an hour. Desperate righting Proceeds Geneva, via Paris, Feb. 8, G. 55 A. M. —Desperate-fighting is going on in the Carpathians between Lawoczne, in Gali c.ia ami Volcctz, in Hungary. According to a dispatch received here bhe Russians have captured the villaiges of Ulics, Komarnik, Czerteif and Swednik. A great tattle is raging in Bukowina between Dorna-Watra and Kimpolung. Austrian headquarters has prohibited war correspondents from going to the front at Poschoita. The Austrians are reported to have been driven back be hind the Moldava river and the "Rus sians also have gained some successes at Yablomitz. BANKER'S SUICIDEDUEIO OVERDRAFfSBY PATRONS Continued From First Fas*. foot up more than $15,000, and, in the event of the nhortage being in eifftw of that amount, the directors, all sub stantial business men and well-to-do farmers, Will make good the deficit in order that t)he bank may be reopened for business at the earliest possible day. The statement is made that tihe dead cashier had discounted the paj>er of three customers of the bank witihout the knowledge of the directorate, ami, in fear of the disgrace attending the disclosure of his act, he sought death. Up to this time, it is said, evidence is lacking of any criminal collusion 'be tween Cashier Binner and these cus tomers. There is a report ourrent that all of the three affe now engaged in an effort to make good the overdrafts, in the 'hope of escaping litigation, which would lay bare their responsibility for the banker's death. The keenest sympathy is felt for Binner and his funnily in this commun ity, where, up to bhe time of his death, lie ha<l enjoyed the confidence and es teem of the people among whom he had Kved all his life. Now that he is dead, it is reealted fchiaJt of late 'he had appeared worrieid, and no longer spent his evenings at home, as had been his custom, hut there was no suspicion of wrongdoing. Binner was one of the organizers and president of toho Schaefferstowu Rural Telephone Company, a leading member of Heddelberg Grange and prominent in local secret societies. In addition to a wealthy father, he had many wealthy friends, to whom he coukl have gone, with every prospect of immediate and adequate financial aid in his trouble. He chose deafh instead. The bank will remain closed until Wednesday. The cashier's bond of $15,000 amply secures the bank against all loss, officials of the institu tion say. The examiner is still at work on the books. The funeral of Binner will be held to-morrow. It is not known if any criminal prosecutions will be brought. FOREIGN SITUATION CAUSE OF IRREGULARITY IN STOCKS Bethlehem Steel Feature of Market To day and Rises Two Points to a New High Record—Short Selling Un settles List Now York, Feb. B.—Wall Street — The foreign situation was again the cause of some irregularity in to-day'a early stock market, leading shares showing variable changes. The feature was Bethlehem Steel which rose two points to a now liilgh record. Railroad issues inclined' to a lower level, buT soon recovered, Southern Paciße mov ing up a point. Interest attached to the movement of Canadian Pacific which rose over a point in London. By the end of the half hour the end of the list was firm under fcad of Reading and U. S. Steel. Short selling unsettled the list; soon after the early rise, but stocks wore freely taken on the de!|ine and recov eries followed. Canadian Pacific sold higher than before and Bethlehem Steel increased its gain to 3 points. Other leaders reflected bearish aggrcsion, however, Union Pacific and Reading moving unevenly. Meantime various specialties were put forward for sub stantial gains, Kreage rising 4 points. Some equipment shares were heavy, American Locomotive, pfd., breaking 13 points to its new minimum of 83. Seaboard Air Line also fell 2 1-4 to its fixed price of 36. Bonds were firm, some minor issues gaining over two points.
