F.h German arndes are continuing their territic attacks upon the SOO-mlle Russian front between the Niemen and Vis tula rivers, but it is officially claimed here that the troop of Grand Duke Nicholas are successfully withstand ing the assaults. In the Carpathians, because of indications that the Aus-tro-Genmin attacks there are weak ening, the Russian troops hae in turn opened an offensive and have u.iineJ a number of successes with thdr counter attacks. On the northern front, Russian re inforcements l;ave been sent to the legion of Augustowo and Plock over the new military railways which have been constructed since the war be gan and it was asserted here today that the armies of Field Marshnl von Ilindenbur? are now confronted hy "00,000 fresh Russian troop? who will take the offensive as soon as the Germans' heavy losses compel them to slacken their attacks.

It was of a desp,.tate char rcter In the rrt-ion of Aus.-uMowa and ls. In the region from Sierp-c to ;:'xock. It seems strange that the war is most active In the theater of war where the climate now is most rigorous. But such is the case, and it is in Fast Prussia and in Poland, and in the altitudinous Carpathian mountain passes tlmt most activities are noted. The photograph shows a group of German soldiers collected about a campflre in Poland. Fires are few and far between as the giarc at night, and the smoke in the daytime, be tray the presence of men.

BFRL.IN (via Amsterdam), Feb. 19. Germany's reply to the United states is indorsed today by all tho British newspapers which also con tinue their criticism of American un neutrality. This is based upon the pointed statement by the Kovernment that the allies are being furnished with weapons and munitions of war by American concerns. Die Post is particularly caustic In Its comment on Americans, saying: "When something does not suit the Yankee's business they are accustom ed to raising as a threatening buga boo, as great a sabre-rattling noise as possible. They calculate on tho state thus alarmed creeping prompt ly to heel. If this effect is not pro duced, the yelping pack of Yankees foon quiets down."

One Is the American traffic in arms; the other is starvation. We need no American arms to struggle with the ally starvation. We contest with a firm consciousness that we shall pull through even if not a single grain of wrhat should reach us. while Great Britain through our blockade system must experience most severe damage." The Lokal Anzeiger comments on the situation as follows: "Feb. IS was the beKinnlnpr of a defensive tight by a people threaten ed with starvation. A people which must light for its existence must and will push aside all consideration a.s to third parties' attitude toward us. All considerations have already been pushed aside. The tight we are en tering must be fought with all reck lessness or not at all. "We Germans are resolved to light without regard to the consequences. Deep rooted in our 'people is a humble conviction that victory lies in God's hands. We await the decision of Providence. Difficult will be tho fight perhaps, and long also, for the enemy will not shrink from any means in order to frustrate our efforts." SALOON LUNCH COUNTERS INSANITARY, REPORT SAYS INDIANAPOLIS. Feb.
