Though of f cling strong resistance, the Teutonic troops have thus far been unable to stop the Itus-sian offensive.

The latest report of Grand Duke Nicholas, which was received shortly after midnight, follows: "The situation in the Shavli region, west of the Narcw, on the Xarew front and on the left bank of the Vistula, is unchanged. Uridgo Destroyed. "The enemy attempted yesterday to throw a bridge across the Hobr liver below Ossowiee, near Brjostovo, bat the lire of our artillery destroyed it. Our patrols demolished what ro maif eel after our artillery fire ceased. "In the Pissu valley we captured a hostile aeroplane. "In the sectors of Jedwadno and Przsasnysz, there w;us a lively artil lery duel and isolated engagements of a iocal nature. In the direction of Holimow, near Goumine. (southwest of Warsaw) the enemy attacked our positions. He used asphyxiating gas, but at no point was able to make progress. We occupy the whole of our original front. "In the direction of Lublin, our of fensive has extended along the entire region from the mouth of the Podlipe as far as the si ream south of Hyk hawa.

Soldiers in the European war must be made drunk before they will obey their of ficers' commands for bayonet charges, was the amazing statement made by Jane Addams during a discussion of her experiences in the warrin, Euro pean countries Friday night in Car negie hall. Germans, French and English were specifically mentioned by her in this connection. "Young men in these countries say, 'Ah. the bayonet charge that is what wo dread.' "You know they make their men drunk before they can get them to charge," she continued. "They give thom beer in ("lermany, rum in the English army and absinthe in the French. They have to give them the dope, so to speak, before a bayonet charge is possible." The occasion was a reception to Miss Addams and to the other dele gates to the International Congress of Women to Promote peace held 'at The Hague during the last days of April. Three thousand persons representing religious, peace, suffrage and numer ous distinctive womens' organizations occupied every seat in the place and on the platform were men and women of prominence. Many llefti to Kill. As interesting as her reference to the conditions under which she de clared the bayonet charges take place was Miss Addams assertion that many of the soldiers on both sides of the conflict are deliberately refraining from taking the lives of their oppo nents. "We met .a young German in Switzerland who had been in the trenches three months and a half," she said, "and who had been wounded in the lungs. He was recuperating and fully expected to go back to the trenches and die there. "Here he was at 28 facing death and this is what he. said, speaking his mind before he went back to the trenches: "That never for those three months and a half had he shot his gun in a wav that it could possibly hit another man that nothing in the world would make him kill another man. Anil he said 'I know hundreds of young men who are the same.' Kill Scies Hathor Than light. "At one hospital that we visited in Germany I learned of live young Ger mans who had been cured and were ready to be sent back to the trenches who had committed suicide rather than be put into a position where they would have to kill someone else. "We also heard similar stories in France where wo talked with the Nicaraguan Minister Visits the Plants of Stuclebaker and Oliver Plow Works. Senor Don Emilio Chamorri, the Nicaraguan minister to tho United States, who is now in this city, is making an effort to have manufactur ers of South Bend establish branch houses in his country. Senor Cha morri spent Friday afternoon with 11. G. Spaulding. secretary' of the Cham ber of Commerce, inspecting the plants of the Xtudebaker corporation and the Oliver Chilled Plow Co. After going through these two fac tories, he spent some time with the managers of both plants, discussing tho outh American trade. Senor Chamorri pointed out the possibilities of the trade with his country, as well as all of the outh Ameriean repub lics. He said that farming was the principal industry of Nicaragua, which covers an area of 1,000 square miles, and that the people are beginning to raise corn, sugar cane and other prod ucts, along with the main product, coffee. VI nits Tool Factory. Hefore his trip through the factories Friday afternoon. Senor Chamorri had already gone through the plants of the South Hend Tool Co. and a number of other shops. At all of the places he inspected the machinery and out put with a Mew toward modernizing the industries now carried on in his country. He has also spent consider able time at the higv. school and at Notre Dame and St. Mary's. Educa tional institutions in Nicaragua are not of the best, he says, and systems in use in this country will be installed there. In discussing South American pros pects, Senor Chamorri said conditions there have been better since the Fnited States practically established a protectorate over the country. This country took over the customs collec tions for Nicaragua several years ago and suppressed the revolution that wa.s constantly going on. Although the Nicaraguan minister made no ref erence to the work of the'Fnited .States he gave the impression that the ac tion wa.s favored by the Nicaraguan?. (lose to ShUely. Senor Chamorri regretted Sen. H. F. Shively illness, when told of his condition. Sen. Shively Jind Senor Chamorri have come into close rela tionship at Washington through tho former's efforts in bringing about a treaty between this country and Nica ragua, which probably will be put throught at the next session of the senate.

S. A, nurses in hospitals and to convalescent soldiers'." Miss Addams read the letter of a young Englishman criticizing the older men for sending out young men to do the killing of other men. She declared that one of the lead ing men in Europe had declared that if the vor could have been post poned fr 10 years it would h..4ve been impossible becaus" of the tremendous revolt against war in the schools and universities. "When you go aboiu and hear the same story in each country visited, see the tremendous loss of life, you are convinced that it cannot last for ever: that the crest of the wave can not be held indetinitely, that human nature will reassert itself; that it must come to the fore. Do Not Want War. "When we spoke to the people we were told that the people did not want the war, that the government was making it. The government de clares 'We do not want this war and we s-hould be grateful to anybody who would stop it.' we did not reach the military, but we heard from persons who said some of tho military were sick of this war. "In practically all of the foreign of fices the men said again in very sim ilar phrases, that a nation at war can not make negotiations- that a nation at war could not even express a willingness to receive expressions, be cause the enemy construes them as an acknowledgment of weakness. Hut it was agreed if some other neutral power presents propositions there is not one of the warring nations that would not be glad to receive such service." Miss Addams declared that she and her companions who were delegated as a committee by The Hague con gress of women to sound the nations as to the prospect for peace, never talked peace. Peace Through People. "The word is intolerable to them," she said. "We simply asked what could be done to substitute some form of civil negotiation in place of con tinuing to light out the issue on a military basis." "When peace comes." concluded Miss Addams. "it must come through the people within the warring coun tries having with the same type of mind getting into touch with each other, which they cannot now do under the strict military censorship of the press persons who represent the other view of life than the military and in the midst of their patriotic fervor long for some other approach to this terribly confused situation." WHOLESALE ROBBERIES Shriners and School Teachers Said to be Big Losers Two Suspects Held. SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, July 10. Two men were held by the United States cavalry at Yellowstone park, as suspects in the wholesale hold-ups that occurred in the park yesterday. Dispatches early today told conflicting reports of the robberies. One message said that 12' persons were robbed, many of them Shriners and school teachers from New York state. The latest olllcial news of the rob beries came from the Oregon Short Line Railroad Co., saying that live coaches were held up by two men, one mile and a half beyond the junc tion of the Gibbon and Firehole rivers, 15 miles from the west en trance to the park where the road makes many sharp turns. Forty-eight coaches were known to have passed the point where the robbers worUi'd. One Man Jumps. The coaches were far enough apart to give the bandits time to search the passengers of one chicle and before the next appeared. A Mr. JUce of New York, wan tired on by the robbers, when he jumped from a coach and ran back to warn other tourists. He was said to hae ecapd unhurt. The activities of the robbers was reported to Col. Hrett. commandant of the park cavalry, by Sen. James A. Hrady of Idaho, and F. J. Ilaynes. an of ficial ef a stage coach company. A troop of cavalry was dispatched to search the neighborhood of the hold up.". Among those known to have been robbed were several New Yorkers, in a party headed by Urrnard M. Ha rouch. Frederick It.

CORNISH. N. II.. July 10 Pros' t Wilson read the press translation of the German reply with keen interest today, but in the absence of the offi cial text declined to make any com ment. In view of the arrival of the note before it was expected, the president may return to Washington on Monday but it is more likely that he will wait until tha middle of next week, cabinet meets on Tuesday, but president wishes to analyze the carefully before he discusses it The the note with his otllcial family. The impression here is that the German note Is evasive arid an at tempt, at quibbling that in no way meets the demands of the United States. This impression has been gained from the press version and the official translation is awaited with the highest interest at Harlandken House. wiUTi; iiorsii mi:n quiitt. WASHINGTON. July 10. White House ollicial3 declined to comment on the German reply on submarine warfare until the official text has been studied and discussed publicly by the president. Sec'y Tumulty has sent inquiries to the summer white house at Cornish to learn when Pres't Wilson would re turn to Washington. In state department circles it was stated that the offer by Germany set forth in the text cabled from Herlin, to guarantee the safety of tour bellig erent ships to carry Americans in the war zone under the American Hag would seriously embarrass the ad ministration in its anticipated further demands on Germany for safety for Americans at sea. It was believed by officials that this offer, if borne out by the official text, would lessen materi ally Interest of the public in any fur ther demand on Germany on this sub ject. Altogther. the German note, as now available, was stated to have been much more carefully constructed and to be' a far more friendly statement than tho previous one. While it holds to the position that Germany must continue he-- submarine warfare as long as England continues her block ade against the shipment of food to Germany, officials declared that the German position was stated so per suasively that public sentiment in the United States would be less determined in its opposition to the German view than before this reply was received. Britain Holds Reply Worthless. LONDON, July lu. British expec tation is that the United .States will find the German repb' to its appeal for humanity in submarine warfare completely unsatisfactory. The text of the note arrived here too late for the morning papers, but tho evening editions display it prominently. They declare that Germany has pointedly ignored the demand of the American govermcnt that merchant vessels bo stopped and searched instead of being sunk without warning. "This one pcint alone," 5aid an of ficial today, "is enough to make the reply worthless. it is a point that Germany is seeking to bargain with the United States. From the previous actions of the American government we know how successful the Herlin foreign office will be. "That part of the note relating to the IiUsitania requires no comment. The liner was sunk by torpedoes and not by the explosion of ammunition on board. She wa-s unarmed. "Germany seems to have overlooked the fact that American government is acting so humanely and not for the Amencans alone. The suggestion that the American government report the coming and going of hex ships to Ger many is preposterous. It will meet the scorn it deserves." FIND NINE BOMBS ON STEAMER KIRKOSWALD Uiicsicctal Infernal Machine is Pis co ercd When Cargo is Unloaded at Marseilles. NEW YOKK, July 10. Nine bombs any one of which would have sent the freighter to the bottom, were con cealed in the cargo of the Hritish steamer Kirkoswald when she left New York on May 2 laden with sugar fur Marseilles. The unexploded in fernal machines were found while citschurprincr cargo, according to offi cers who returned today on the Kirk oswald. . There is a possibility that the bomb were placed upon the ship by Frank Holt, the assailant of J. P. Morgan, or an accomplice. Six bombs lilted with time explosion c ?cs were discovered when a bag ? "osed to contain only sugar burst U n the Marseilles dock. The other three were found when the cargo was carefully examined.

AMERICA'S DEMAND. May 1." "It points out that the United States covernment. confi dently expects, therefore, that the imperial Corman government will disavow the acts of which the government of the Unit-d States complains, that they will make reparation, so far as reparation is po.-ssible, for the destruction of American travelers on the Lusi tania." June 10. "The government of tho United States therefore very earnestly and solemnly renew the representations of its note trans mitted to the imperial German government on the IT.th dav of May. The government of the United states deems it reasonable to ex pect that the imperial German government will adopt the meas ures necessary to put these prin ciples into practice in respect of the safeguarding of American lives and American ships, and ask's for assurances that this will bo done." GERMANY'S REPLY. 1. The American demand that Germany observe the rule of "visit and search" before torpedoing merchant ships, whether belliger ent or neutral, is unanswered. Hlamo for the destruction of the Husitania Is placed on Circa t Hritain because of her policy of arming merchant ships, o.i the owners of the ship for carrying high explosives. 3. Protection for Americans traveling to Europe is promised in a restricted way. it offers safe conduct for a certain number of certified American ships, provided those ships do not carry contra band and Germany is notified in advance of their sailing. Germany also offers to allow the United States to fly the American Hag on ships of other neutral countries and, if needed on four belligerent merchant ships for passenger traf fic only. In a previous official statement Germany has imied any intention of attacking without warning ships flying the American Hag, whether carrying contraband or not. BERLII BELIEVES CRISIS PASSED German Officialdom Regards Reply as Fully Meeting Plea of Pres't Wilson For Human ity Principles. HKRHIX (via Amsterdam), July 10. General sentiment in official Ger man circles today is that the reply to the second American note will re move all danger of a crisis in the rela tions between Germany and the United Estates. " utficiahiom rtgards the reply as a document that meets fully the plea of Pres't Wilson for the observance of the principles of hu manity in the war. While the details of the note differ in some respects from the forecasts se cured before the final draft was pre pared the main features remain unchanged. It promis to prcent the imperilling of American lives up on neutral ships and to prevent inter ference with American ships used in lawful commerce. The reply upholds the sinking of the liner Husitania without warning on the ground the submarine which destroyed the liner would have court ed destruction otherwi.-'. Full respon sibility for submarine attacks upon merchant shipping is placed upon England in this paragraph: Distinction ilx-d ( hit. "In the most direc t e.ntradi tin of international law. all distinction between merchantman and war : seLs have been obliterated by the order to Hritish merchantmen to arm them selves and to ram submarines and t he promise of rewards therefore, mid neutrals who us" merchantmen as travelers thereby have been exposed In an increasing degree to all the dangers of war." Without directly making the asser tion that an explosion of ammunition in its cargo was responsible for th Ivasitania's sinking so rapidly, t he reply nevertheless makes this intima tion, saying: "After the experience of sinking much smaller and less seaworthy ves sels, it was to be expected that a mighty ship like the Husitania would remain above water long enough. een after the torpedoing, to permit pas sengers to enter the ship's boats, cir cumstances f a very p-eul;ar kind. especially the presence on board of large quantities ..f high explosive ma terials deceived this expectation."

This was expected to be available late today. Answer Not Direct. U.ut the unofficial translation of the German reply was regarded as indi cating clearly that Germany ha. nt come forward with the direct answer expected, and there must be further diplomatic correspond nee. It wtv believed not unlikely in oftbial qiu ters that the United States folIowiTOf two evasive replirs from the kaiser"! government, will now demand a cotu cise response to former communica tions. The r ntire subject it is expected will be considered by the president and his cabinet next Tuesday if the presi dent's plans to return to Wash ington by that date are not changed.

Nor does Germanv indi cate that lie xv ill stop to sear ch or seize such ships.
