It states that tho weather has be come warmer in West Flanders and northern France, accompanied by more rain and that the guns have silenced a number of German guns. The account follows: Mrike German Gum. "From the sixth to the ninth the operations were of the same character as those of the previous thiee weeks, on the sixth, on cur right, our how itzers obtained direct hits on two German gun emplacements. other guns shelled some of the enemy's trenched with good results, relieving this portion of our front. The activ ity of our infantry in sniping, aided by the tire of our artillery and the in genuity of our sappers in devising new methods, is making the enemy very uneasy. The nights are contin ually broken by spasmodic outbursts ,f musketry from the titrman trench es and the frequent liring of star or illuminating shells. These precau tionary measures are not altogether unjustified, for in many places tho trenches of the Germans and the In dians arc only a few yards apart. "on the center one of our batteries tired on a German working party (sappers;, and caused considerable losses.

WASHIXGTi inc. 1.",. The Hob-:-on resolution for national prohibition of the sale of intoxicating liip'ors will command a majority of votes In tho house, according to a poll of the mem bers, but unless there is a change in sentiment between now and lee. 22 it will fail to get the necessary two thirds vote to send it to the senate for act ion. A similar poll shows that the reso lution proposing a constitutional amendment granting suffrage to wom en probably will fail to get even a ma jority in tlie house. .Nearly two-thirds of the members at the present time are non-committal on suffrage. About one-third are out in the open against the Hobson reso lution, with an e.'iual number in the open in fa or of it. When the vote in the house is taken Georgia. Texas, Louisiana. .Mississippi and Alabama will go solidly against prohibition, except Mr. Hobson.of Alabama, while Virginia. Oklahoma. Arkansas. North Carolina and South Carolina will go solidly in favor of prohibition, Tennessee, and Kentucky will divide. All are opposed t the women suffrage amendment with tho exception of Mr. Ilobson of Alabama, who cannot be bound by caucus. It is the plan of the democratic congress men representing the southern states to have "a caucus of each delegation lor the purpose of voting- in u body. ALLIES FDR I Declares Turkey Was Forced to Begin Hostilities Through Aggressive Actions of Rus sian and Britain. CONSTANTINOPLE. Dec. I.".. Re sponsibility for the war was placed upon the allies by the sultan in an address to the Turkish parliament. "We were just in the best wav to give reforms in the interior fresh im petus when this great crisis broke up on us," said the .sultan. "WhUe our government was firmly resolved to ob serve the strictest neutrality our Meet was suddenly attacked In the Black sea by the Russian fleet. England ind France then began hostilities by sending troops to our frontiers. Therefore. I declared Turkey in a .state of war with these powers as na eessity compelled us to resist by armed force the policy which has at all times been pursued against tho Islam world by Pritish, France which has assumed the character o reli gious persecution. With conformity with a Fetwa I called all the Moslems to a holy war against these three pow ers and all those who would help them. I am convinced that our forces on land and sea will add fresh vic tories in Asia and Africa to those gain ed by the Germans and Austrians against our common enemy. '"Special privileges our government has granted to foreigners having as sumed a shape detrimental to our right of sovereignty, were abolished, but I am able to state with satisfaction that our relations with powers which aro not nvolved in the ware are sin cerely friendly, and especially so that in our relations with our neighbor, Bulgaria." Brilliant Ceremonies. The sultan's speech was made at the opening of parliament, which was the occasion of brilliant ceremonies. The sultan was accompanied to the parlia ment building by the heir apparent to the Turkish throne. Goltz Pacha ( Baron von Dor Golt. of the German navy), and a number of Turkish princes. Before beginning his address the sultan held a long conference with the Egyptian khexiive. who has cast his, lot with Turkey. As soon as the sultan had departed the proceedings of the session began with Pres't Halil Bey in the chair. The president in addressing the dele gates on Turkey's position said: ' W ar v;ts forced upon us. This is not a war for the settlement of any single question nor for the restoration of our wounded national honor, nor a transitory war for the defense of any province, but a struggle for our very life, and therefore we must hold on till a lasting peace is secured."

GERMANS PRED GT EARLY RETREAT OF Military Experts Believe Heavy Blows Administered in West ern .Galicia Will Cause Rus sian Retirement in Poland. BKliLIN. Dec. 15. (By Wire less.) In response to a message from the president of the reich stag expressing sorrow over the Pes of the stpiadron of Admiral oat von Spee, Kmperor William sent this reply: "May the heavy offers which we are forced to make in this battle for our existence be borne by all of us as a single man. Sup ported by an unshaken hope in God, our lord, from whose gra cious hand we humbly receive fortune or misfortune, joy or sorrow, we will turn the most ditficult hour into a blessing for the nation and fatherland." DL'PLIN, Dec. 1.1. (Via Amster dam.) German military experts pre dicted today that the Pussians in southern Poland would be compelled to retreat owing to the heavy blows i suffered by the czar's army m west ern Galicia. The threatened siege of Cracow ha.s been averted, they assert ed, hut Pussians north of the upper reaches of the Vistula will have to withdraw toward Jvangorod. These Russian forces lie in a wedge shaped formation with the point ex tending to the Sreniewa river. Tho advance to this point was gained only by terrific loss of life, the Russians being compelled to take the Austro German trenches by bayonet charges. The Russian udvunce here was neces sarv in order to cooperate with the forces in western Galicia south of the Vistula. The retreat of the latter troops has placed the Russians' wedge in a posi tion of danger. It is further reported that Gen. Ruszki, who was in com Miand of the jsouthern Poland forces of the czar, is seriously ill. He is suffer ing from dysentery. The death of two more German gen erals was announced here today. Maj. (Jen. von Martin and Gen. von Dries-en have been killed on the Held of battle. RUSSIANS DIUVKN HACK. VIENNA. Dec. 15. (Via Perlln and Amsterdam.) Russian forces that tried to reach Cracow from the south east have been driven back nearly oV miles, according to an olticial state ment issued here today, saying that they have been pursued as far as the plain of Allenthal. The Austrians are taking many prisoners, and inflicting heavy losses in killed and wounded upon the en envy. "The pursuit of the Pussians in western Galicia is being continued." savs tlie statement. "It has already reached the plain of Allenthal with alternatively more or less important engagements. "We are taking many prisoners and the Pussians are losing heavily in killed and wounded as they retreat." Tho recent reverses ot the Austrians in Servia are attributed to the with drawal of troops from that war zone to enforce the western Galicia forces. The ocensive w ill be resumed in Servia as soon as the Galician campaign is decided. Rumors that Austria had attempted to arrange a separate peace with Servia were officially denied to day. It was declared that the cam paign against the Servians would be carried out to a successful conclusion.

Dec. 1.1. Fol lowing the cabinet meeting today the impression sained strength that the United States was about t,o take vigorous action to stop the lirintr over the international line at Naco, Ariz. It was be lieved that orders were about to be sent to Cen. Bliss to serve an ultimatum on Gen. Maytorena that the firing must cease within a specitied time, and to open lire on the Mexicans- at the expiration of that period if bullets continued to fall on this side of the border. No one in authority would dis cuss the matter, pending the is suance of a statement promised by Sec'y of War Garrison. VERA CPFZ. Mexico. Dec. 15. Plame for bullets falling upon United States soil along the Arizona border is laid at the door of Gen. Villa, in a statement issued here bv Gen. Venus tanio Carranza, "first " chief" of tho constitutionalists. lie intimates that if the American government would make representations to Villa tho acute situation which has developed at Naco as the result of demands made upon the constitutionalists by Washington would be relieved. "The first chief has done all in his power to avoid accidents but cannot prevent Gen. Maytorena's forces that undoubtedly are under Villa's orders, from firing with the intention of pro voking international difliculty." saya the statement. "Such action on the part of the United States, would be detrimental to the constitutionalists In Naco. and would be equal to assisting the Villa istas. "On the other hand, it is our mis fortune that a few shots crossed the border but the Mexican government is prepared to make reparations. The lirst chief is doing all possible to show Americans and their government that lie is trying to avoid -complications whereas Villa's acts are provocative. "The American government has al ways had great influence over Villa. Thero have always been confidential agents who have great power over Villa and at present there are thre such in Mexico City. Taking all this into account and considering further that Maytorena is but a military chief under Villa, we cannot comprehend why they want to throw the blame on the first chief of the constitutionalists for what occurs at Xaco. when it would be as easy for the American government that has so much influ ence over Villa to tell him to stop firing." ADD HOLIDAY TOUCH In every court hotisr wiiulow at dusk on Christmas eve, just before the opening of the Christmas tree fes tival, lighted tapers will appear "to light the Christ Child on His way." This pretty expression of the senti ment of the evening will be made pos sible by the Standard Oil Co. and the boys of the manual trainng depart ment of the high school.

Hvery singer will have a place in the court house to stay until his time comes to perform, so that no on will have bmg to remain in the eohl. Special arrangements have been made to take care f all the school children who participate, so that they will be in no way en dangered from the exposure.
