ST. rETBRSBURG, Aug. 15. Gen. Sam .anoff in Warsaw, has issued a proclamation thanking tho reservists thero for their readiness and orderli ness in coming to the colors, and as suring the Polish xople that their persons and property will be especial ly protected by th Russia troops. Tho ' strictest military censorship that Ilusia has ever ordered went into effect today. All correspondents were warned that the only news of the mil itary movement that they miffht send were the ortleial statements issued by the war oilice. The following pro clamation to t.ie army was Issued to day by Grand Duke Nicholas Nichol aievitch, commander-in-chief: : "The grand duke generalissimo de sires every man under his command clearly to understand that the present war "was provoked by enemies of the Slav empire. Therefore Russian armies must on no account do harm to .people b?lonRing to the Slav na tionality. Moreover, the loyalty of the Poles entitles them, whether in habiting Russia, Germany or Austria, to the utmost respect and considera tion." The mayor of St. Petersburg noti fied municipal authorities along1 the frontier to take charge of the wives and children or Austrian prisoners as "Russia 1qqs not wage war on de PRFNGH Ai BRITISH EFFECT JUNCTION TO MEET TEUTONIC WAVE Big Battle Near Between From 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 Soldiers Trained for Slaughter. BY II HUBERT TEMPLE. LONDON, Au. 15. From tho iron hand of the military censorship there escapes only enough to show that the Germans are operating on a vast scale In an endeavor to advance all along the huge battle line that threatens the weakest defences of France and that the French and British forces have effected a junction to oppose tho wave of teutonic warriors. The big battle is near. The ffigan tic armies numbering from 1,000.000 to 2.000,000 men trained for Flauhter by all the devices of "civilization" can perfect, are almost at death grips. This is shown by the tightening of the censorship here and the following announcement from the Belgian min istry of war at Brussels: "In view of the present disposition of the French and Belgian armies it has been decided in the interest of the country not to make any further an nouncement of the movement of the armies. "The government relies upon pa triotism of the press to maintain si lence on the military operations. The slowness of the decisive battle along (CONTINUED .

A dispatch from Nish says that 400,000 Austrian troops who made a concentrated attack last night along tho Servian frontier were repulsed with heavy losses." This is partially confirmed by a Rc tuer dispatch reporting- that the Austrians were repulsed at Belgrade and along- tno Danube though they succeeded in crossing tho River Save after an incessant bombardment and penetrated Shabats and Loznitza. Shabats is forty miles west of Bel grade. GERMAN CRULSER IS OFF SAN FRANCISCO. SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15. The German cruiser, Leipzig, was sighted near the Golden Gate early today, though it was thought that she had sailed north. The cruiser is believed to be lying in wait for the British steamer, Cloughton, and that vessel has been warned by wireless to stay within the three-mile limit. The Cloughton is bringing four thou sand tons of coal which would be of great help to the Leipzig. JAP CRUISERS ACTIVE. LONDON, Aug. 15. An ex change dispatch from Pekin says a Chinese report is to the effect that three Japanese cruisers ap peared off Laichowfu yesterday. The cruisers commenced charter ing sampans, indicating the prob able landing of troops. Laichowfu is on the north coast of. Shantung, opposite Kiaochow.

TURKEY SAY T FAUL Takes No Heed of Demand in Goeben and Breslau Affair Due to Confiscation of Turkish Ships By England. ROME, Aug. 15. Sir John French, commander of the British forces in Belgium, and Gen. Joffre, commander-in-chief of the French forces, having effected a juncture with the Belgium forces, have planned a long line defensive assault on the Germans, ac cording to a report received here from the frontier, and the skirmishing of the past week is fast leading up to a fierce engagement. The plan is to wipe the Mediterranean 'and Adriatic of the German fleet simultane- Ously with the battle on land. Italy's position on account of the purchase of the German cruisers Goeben and Breslau is gradually shifting more and more toward favoritism for England and her allies. Tur key has threatened that any attempt to molest her in her enjoyment of her new acquisi tions will mean a declaration of war against England and cooperation with Germany. WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. That the Turkish government will refuse to pay any heed to the wishes of England and France and their allies in the matter of yield ing up the two German warships which it is reported have taken refuge in the Dardanelles, and that any demands on the part of England especially may bring up on the allies a declaration of war from Turkey, was the intimation in a statement made by the Xurk ish ambassador, A. Rustenibey, today. The ambassador declared that "England has outraged not only Turkish sentiment but that of the whole Islamic world," by her seizure of two Turkish dread naughts in English ship yards, and thereby has forfeited any appeal to international law in the matter of the German warships. "If there Is as reason to believe.' jald tlio ambassador, two Turkish dreadnauchts, tho Sultan Osman nnd tfie Ilelcliade. in construction for Turkey in British yards, both of which liad already been paid for, and one of wliicli, formerly tho Itio J)e Janeiro, was taken over from Brazil, were seized by England which would reiresent a startling violation of In ternational law, Uien Ilnland and her allies would have lost Uio risht to xnako any representations to Turkey, if slko decides whicli I do not bay is Uie case to buy from Germany tho Cloeben and the iiresiaii, wmcii ru mor says liave taken refuse in Turk ish water. In other words, the artion of Great liritaln In regard to the abote mentioned Turkish drcadnaimhts has liberated Turkey from the restraints of international law In rtxrard to Eng land and her allies. I do not mean to 8ay that Turkey will avail herself of her freedom In this matter but the action of England may be described as a senseless breach of International law which serves no uefid purpo considering tho naval superiority she at present enjoys over Germany and has outraged not only Turkish senti ment but that of tho whole Islamio world." The Turkish torpedo boats commu nicated to the German commander tho result of their reconnaissances out side the straits. The Turks also sup piled both the German ships with coal. The Goeben and Breslau searched several British. French and Grek merchantmen lylnfc- in the Dardanelles and removed the French flatr ar.a tho wireless apparatus from the Tessa. -geries maritime liner Sashatien.

Two trains filled with German and Bel gian soldiers wounded in the bat tle of Haelen arrived here todav bringing new details of the con flict that took plr.ee about the lit tle Brabant town. Both Belgians and Germans confirmed earlier reports that the kaiser's cavalrv had suffered a crushing defeat. A German offi cer said that only 500 of the 000 to 5,000 Uhlans engaged had escaped unhurt. Many guns that had been mounted on automobile trucks to support the attack of the German cavalry were mired in a swamp as the Germans fell back to Tongres and were captured. At Tongres, however, rein forcements were met and the Ger mans resumed their advance. nv nin:xAiti nii-JiANcxritT. BRUFSKLS, Aii z. If.
