FRESH TROOPS SENT TO NORTHERN ARENA Advance of Kaiser's Men in That Region Is Slow Ger mans Keep Up Bombard ment of Forts. Ily Frederick Werner. P Lit LIN, Aug. While Field Marshal von Hindcnburg is hammer ing away at the Russians all the way from Kovno to the Dvina, seven great Austro-Gennan armies are heing massed between the Vistula and Dug rivers, apparently for a drive against Urest-Litovsk. The tlermans are astride the two important railway lines running east ward from Warsaw at two points. The occupation of Lukow gives them con trol of a considerable portion 'of the railroad running to Prest-Litovsk and Kiev, and the possession of the junc tion southwest of Ostrow puts a large section of the Warsaw-Petregrad line in the hands of the Teutonic allies. The holdinu: ef these two lines cuts off the retreat of a great number ef Russians by rail, the exact number he ing unknown. The seven armies being concen trated in the triangle of width War saw is tho apex, are those of Gen.' von Scholtz, Prince Leopold of Bavaria, (Jen. Dankl. Gen. con Koeyess, Gen. von Woyrs"h, Archdukck Joseph Fer dinand and Field Marshal von Mack enzen. Semi Fresh Troops. Fresh German treiops are being sent into the eastern arena and they prob ably will be used against the Russians In the north as the obstacle there .have proved more serious than those in central and southern Poland. Kovno has been attacked from the air, bombs being dropped from both aeroplanes and a Zeppelin. Dispatches fremi the front announce that the bombardment tf the feirts at Novo Georgievsk and Kovno continues with the utmost fury both by day and night. The fierceness of the rear guarel have ben fought by all the advancing German armies is shown by reports of wounded soldiers hack from the front. The roads traversed by the Germans were tilled with elead and wounded Russians. Every ditch held a ghastly cargo. The fields ami woods were full of unhuried corpse. A great deal of material was captured being discard ed by the Russians to expedite thei: flight. Among the booty taken at Warsaw were -00 automobiles, a num ber of trucks and many wagons. Details ef the capture of Vladimir Volynski on the Luga 73 miles south east of Lublin, were received here to day. Other places occupied in Poland and northwestern Russia were inhab ited largely by Poles and Jews. The German cavalry otttcers imme diately restored order in Vladimir Volynski and began doing what they could to repair the damage done by tho Russians. The German cavalry commander appointed a Russian, a Pole and a Jew to administer the affairs of the city, but they were found to he false to their trust and to be in communica tion with the Russians. Consequently another government was established. GENEVA, Aug. The German offensive in northwestern Russia has been effectively checked, says a dis patch to the Tribune. The Russians are now reported to be delivering strong attacks in Courland and the government of Kovno. In some sections where the Ger mans were formerly carrying on a great offensive movement, the opera tions have dwindled to local tights. TO MAKK R1FLKS. PHILADELPHIA. Aug. l::.

KINGSTON. Jamaica. Aug. 13. Damage estimated at $10,0 00,000 was caused by a terrific hurricane that swept over the northeastern and northern coast of Jamaica last night and early today. Great banana plan tations . were completely destroyed sugar plantations suffered the same fate. A gale is blowing but its iolcnce is decreasing. So far as is known there was no loss of life, but communica tion with many points is still cut off and the fate of some settlements is still in doubt. At - o'clock this morning, the wind was blowing 40 miles an hour and shortly afterward it had increased to 5 0 miles an hour. This city was not caught by the full force of the storm, consequently the elamage here was slight. The Fnited Fruit steamer Saramaca left port last evening, but the wind was so high and the water so rtmgh that she soon returned to port. AUSTRIAN REPLY IS NOW ON ITS WAY Nete. it Is Said, riatly Injects Con tention V. S. Is Violating its Neutrality. WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. After be ing approved by Pres't Wilson, the reply of the Fnited States to Austria Hungary to protest on the shipment of war munitions to the allies was sent forth last night.lt was announced at the state department today that the reply would be handed to the Austrian foreign oltico Monday by Ambassador Penlield it Vienna. Arrangements for the publication of the text of the note have not been made. The note it is understood flatly re jects Austria's claim that the Fnited States is violating neutrality by al lowing the exportation of munitions to the allies. Austria is told that the market is open to every one and that if Gt-rmany and Austria cannot proht by it the fault is not with the Fnited States. Austria's request that the Fnited States immediately place an embargo on munitions exports is re fused, it is understood. The note ex plains that if tho Fnited States a.'d so at this time it would be a breach of neutrality. It weuild be discriminating against the allies for the reason that they control the seas. An embargo therefore would injure them and aid Germany and Austria. STORM-LOSS PUT AT TEN MILLION Credit of Allied Forces In America is Menaced NEW YORK. Aucr. Interna tional bankers admitted today that tho credit of the allies in America is being seriously menaced by the fall in sterling exchange. Continuation of the downward movement, they de clare, would result in serious curtail ment of the supplies being1 exported from America t England. France and Russia. When sterling exchange dropped yesterday to J 4.72 :;-4 it reached a new low rt cord. The slump caused great surprise in view of the sum of more than $ ","Ao,ooO in gold and s-euritbs received this week frem England.
