Fighting at Verdun. [By Ed. L. Keen, United Press Staff Correspondent.] LONDON, Aug. 3.—Fighting around Verdun today again took the center of interest in the daily war reports. Frank admission was made In the Berlin official statement that Frenda attacks at three points against the encircling German lines around the fortress city had been successful. From the Berlin and Paris war of fice reports it appeared that the French activity in this sector almost partook of a general offensive move ment against the German army of the crown prince. Berlin admitted French troops yesterday "gained a footing on Pepper Ridge" (La Cote Du Povre) Just below Vacherauvllle on the Meuae at the northern point of the German encircling attempt. The same success of a French drive "southwest of Fleury" was admitted. Today's French communique men tioned an artillery duel along Le Chapitre ridge and at Chenois—both points being slightly south of Fluery —-but declared there was no infantry action there. In this same section lies Laufee forest, where the German '•statement admits the French recap tured a section of trench gained by the Germans recently. Paris also reported violent German "counter attacks against the trenches captured yesterday on the right bank of the Meuse, which they asserted had been repulsed with "heavy losses. "Important progress" was claimed south of Fleury. There was apparently a slight lull in the fighting along the AngloOer man front, General Haig merely re porting artillery firing and stating that the British were consolidating their positions German Report, BERLIN, Aug. 3—Both British and French attacks on the western front yesterday failed, according to today's war office statement. "Strong English attacks on both sides of the Albert-Bapaume road, east of Trones forest broke down," it asserted. "French advancc* near Barlux and Estress were repulsed." "Between Maurepas and the Somme, seven French assaults were made," the communique continued. "We remained masters of our posi tions after stubborn fighting. The enemy only succeeded in penetrating to Monacu farm, also a trench sec tion north of that point. "At the Thiaumont work, southeast of Fleury the enemy was completely repulsed, likewise in the mountain and forest near by, after temporarily breaking our lines. They suffered heavy losses. The enemy obtained a footing on Pepper ridge, southwest of Fleury and they recaptured a trench section lost Tuesday in Laufee forest. fV "On the eastern front Russian ad vances on both sides of Lake Nobel tailed.

Those who witnessed the hanging said the Irishman was master of him self, walking to death and waiting for the noose to tighten. When the priest recited. Casement responded in a clear voice: "The Lord have mercy on my soul.' Casement was granted Just one boon before hiB death—and that was permission to wear his own clothes instead of the prison garb to which he objected strongly on his Incarceration in the condemned cell. He did not wear a collar. He assisted the execu tioner in adjusting the noose and pin ioning his arms and legs. The government turned a deaf ear to all pleae for commutation of the degraded knight's sentence. Peti tions have been pouring In at the home office for weeks. It was in an swer to these that Lord Robert Cecil asserted that no doubt existed as to the Irishman's guilt and that the only ground on which commutation Mr. Nelson was born at Skana, Sweden, on May 16, 1844, and came to could be based would he political ex- The decedent was married twice.

Two days later the Dublin revolt broke out. The Irish knight was taken to London and on May 16 charged with "high treason without tiie realm." Casement was held not only to have -plotted to over throw British rule In Ireland through landing of German arms and ammu nition and conspiracy with England's enemies, bat to have sought, while In Germany, to persuade Irish pris oners there to disavcxw their alleg iance. The Irish leader was formally de graded from his knighthood immed iately after ooovictlon. A coitoner's inquest over the body of Casement, held at 10:30, resulted In the solemn verdict that his death was "doe to execution by hanging." Solicitor Calvin Duffy, -who was Casement's counsel, was Indignant at the refusal of the prison authorities immediately to turn over the body ol the Irish knight after the law had been satisfied. "Representing the deceased's rela tives at the inquest," he said, "I ap plied to the home office for possession of the body.

Captain Zach Cuillson of the Tim mins, would only say: "I'm glad she's gone." It's the most worrisome bit of pilot ing Captain Zach' has had to handle in many a day. It has been understood Captain Koenig planned to work his way along the coast, north or south after submerging, putting into some port if forced to do so by the enemy patrol. He desired to drive out into the Atlantic, the moment he was sure the patrol had been avoided. The United States cruiser North Carolina, assigned to neutrality duty, was ordered in from the capes today, indicating the belief of government officials, at least, that danger of neu trality violation has passeo. The Deutschland appeared in the, bay after spending the day in Tan gier sound, thirty-five miies up, just about sunset and was catting across the capes as darkness began to fall. She was displaying red and green lights close to the water, but soon put these out. Approaching the Cape Henry light ship the submarine moved in close to shore and held hack while the Timmins proceeded some distance out, presumably to determine if hos tile vessels were in sight. Presently she signalled and the Deutschland moved on past the cape. This was about 9 o'clock. The Deutschland drew near enough' to her pilot tug to permit the shout ing of farewells and the cheering for America and then the rolling water began to pile up between them. She signalled briefly .with her periscope light. Then that blinked oat and the tug turned back to Norfolk. Trip Is Not Wonderful.

THE DAILY GATE CITY1* Offer to Manage Railroads for Soldiers. m" Major Charles Hine of Virginia, former vice-president of the Southern Pacific lines in Mexico, has offered his services to the government in the management of railroads for the transportation of troops should Amer ican soldiers invade Mexico. The major is a West Point graduate, so he knows the usear of railroads from a military as well as a railway point COMING STRIKE IS A MENACE (Continued from page 1) hoping and praying that when the executive board of the "big four" brotherhoods and the general con ference committee of the railroads re sume'conferences in New York, Aug ust 8, they may come to some satisfac tory agreement. Administration officials, representa tives of Jhe railroads and labor, how ever, are pessimistic over possible agreement at that conference. The president Is being kept informed promptly of /every move in the threatened crisis. When the vote of the trainmen is counted—and it is as sumed it will favor a strike—the United States board of mediation and conciliation will at once offer its services. In the event of this board failing to bring peace—and perhaps coincident with'the launching of its efforts— the president may attempt to prevent the strike. 8treet Car Strike. NEW YORK, August 3.—Tie up of 1,291 cars that operate on the 450 miles of surface tracks of the New York city railways within twenty-four hours seemed certain shortly before noon today when the conference call ed by Mayor Mitchell between union and company representatives failed to reach an agreement. Eight thousand men are affected. Such an addition to the lines on which strikes already have been de clared would bring the total mileage directly affected up to 1,010, the num ber of cars up to 2,148 and the number of men to 15,600. Recognition of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employes' was the point on which th© conference struck a snag. Union leaders Insisted on sach recog nition. President Shonts of the New York City Railways refused even to admit the men are dissatisfied. MANY CITIZENS TO BE SAILORS Eight Battleship Loads of Rookies to Spend a Month Learning How.

Get 'High Price for Eggs# There's a small group of fanners near New Providence, Hardin county, who are selling their eggs on the Chi cago market these days for 24% cents a dozen, while the prevailing price in that community is but 18 cents. These farmers are members of the Provi dence Efeg Marketing association, formed in May of this year. This association, the second of its kind to be formed in the United States, was organized by Prof. H. A. Bittenbender, extension poultryman for Iowa State college. He likewise organized the first one, the Black hawk association near Waterloo. Al ready the members are selling 12 cases of eggs a week. The plan of this egg marketing as sociation is to tmite its members for producing eggs of a quality superior to the average egg from the Iowa farm, and then by selling through the machinery of the association make good their guarantee that the eggs are superior. Ironclad rules in regard to egg pro duction are laid down, such as clean nests, gathering twice a day In warm weather, killing or confining all males after the breeding season, keeping eggs cool as possible, marketing twice a week in summer* never washing eggs, and marketing only those that are the best. In order that there may toe no doubt every egg sent out must be stamped with the name or number of the mem* ber who sells it. Then, in case of trouble, the secretary of the associa tion can fix the blame and make tne member supplying it make good for the bad egg. i—Subscribe Cor Th« Gate City.
