against f/nland BY GOVERNMENT Province Placed Under the Jurisdiction of Northern Pront—Evan More Severe Against Ukrainia. Petrograd, Nov. i .— The provisional government took sternly repressive measure* against two recalcitrant Rus sian provinces today. Finland was an nounced a* having been put under Jurisdiction of the northern front be cause of refusal of authorities there to eo-operate in evacuation of certain points. Ukralnla was lilt harder. The gov ernment decided to cut off all money from the central government hereto fore given the province for administra tion because of the growth of a move ment there for autonomy. More vigor ous measures, It was stated, are In view. Presumably the transfer of Finland to "Jurisdiction of the northern front," means a sort of martial law has been proclaimed there. The "evacuation" mentioned probably refers to Helsing fors, where dispatches a week ago re ported a olvll evacuation ordered, pre sumably due to the menace of an at tack by the German Baltic sea fleet.

New York, Nov. 1.—Republican, Democratic and Fusion managers in New York's hottest mayoralty cam paign in recent years awoke suddenly today to the import of Socialist claims of electing the mayor of the nation's blggcBt city. The result was a concerted drive by all three parties against Morris HUlquist, the Socialist candidate who is making the most strenuous campaign any member of his party has ever waged In New York. The Socialist claims and aspirations aie based primarily on the division created in the ordinary voting strength of the old parties. Mayor John Pur roy Mitchel, a Democrat, running on a fusion platform, lost the Republican nomination on which he won at the last election. William Bennett, a Re publican got It. He could not be in duced to withdraw and has gone into the race with the support of a num ber of the old conserve Republicans. Mitchel's name will go on the ballot by Independent petition. The mayor Is supported by most of the Republi can city organization and many of the anti-Tammany Democratic ones. TO KNIFE TAMMANY. John F. Hylan, almost unknown In city politics, won the Democratic nom ination with Tammany's backing. Be cause he was so utterly unknown many Tammanyites, including the strong Sullivan clan, will knife him to vote for Mitchel. The Democratic vote is badly split on Hylan as the Republican vote is on Mitchel. Hillqult is rousing the east side to tremendous meetings by peoples gov ernment pledges. He has garnered some support from former Democrats and Republicans—notably Dudley Field Malone, former collector of the port and one of the "original Wilson men,'' and Amos R. Pinchot, reformer ard ex-Bull Moose. AMERICANISM THE ISSUE. The drive on Jlillquit centered to day on attacks by all other candi dates on the Socialist candidates—An ti-Americanism. Hillqult demands an immediate peace of all belligerents— exactly what Germany wants. He refused to purchase liberty bonds. He was one of the three So cialist delegates to whom the govern ment refused permission to attend the j Gorman-inspired Stockholm "peace conference." As such he came In for powerful denunciation from Charles Kdward Russell, William English Walling and others of the "American branch" of Socialists^ being branded an as30Clate ot y iatftr Berger, in pro j (j erman Socialist. Hillqult was born K R , ga RusBla , and beC ause of this __________ j suppressing some publications and lr ritatlon among some classes against commands a tremendous vote among New York's great Jewish population. Mayor Mitchel continued his cam paign today against Hylan's alleged close association with German propa ganda movements. GOVERNMENT TAKES LIVELY INTEREST IN THE CITY ELECTIONS Washington, Nov. L—For the first time In history mayoralty elections In different big cities ere demanding the attention of the government. fn New York where Morris Hillqult, Socialist candidate on an out and out anti-war ticket, Is running with such alarming speed as to cause a con certed attack .by opposition forces to beat him with a pro-Amerlcaa plat form, the administration Is particu larly concerned. In Cleveland the candidacy of C. E. Ruthenburg, accused as a draft ob structor, Is unique In the records of mayoralty contests. He Is running on a Socialist anti-war ticket. Toledo's campaign for mayor Is rag ing around Robert T. Haworth. So cialist anti-war candidate, against whom all other parties have united their forces on -an "America first" platform. Administration leaders are expecting some possible surprises In the strength shown fcy these candi dates. In New Y'ork particularly there is growing uneasiness that Hillqult, with the tremendous support of tho east side, together with aid of some Importance from other parties, may possibly win with three candidates op posing him. MANY LOCAL I88UE8. In all these cities, administration leaders declare, the vote for the So callst may not be necessarily an anti war vote. It Is pointed out that many local issues and personalities will turn thousands of votes to them. The ac tion of the postoffice department in j what they believe Is an effort by the government to curtail free speech, Is sending thousands of other party "rad icals" Into the Socialist camps. Whether there Is a nation-wide movement to turn the results of the elections in these cities Into propa ganda against the war Is being watched by the government. ARRE8TED FOR THEFT.'.

Reports early today Indicated that telephone service In these cities had not been affected seriously. Dis patches from the northwest stated that leaders of union locals In Washington and Oregon officials ordered the strike to proceed, regardless of the agreement to defer It reached In this city, because they considered the telegram of In structions from the International offi cers here as not sufficiently clear. OPERATQPS WALK OUT. At Seattle 600 telephone operators ^ were declared to have struck, while at i Tacoma and Portland a large number are said to have quit. The Instructions to defer the strike were sent out by International Vice j President L. C. Grasser after he and officers of the district council of the union had conferred with Mediator Reed. The union men accepted Reed's request for such action, but stipulated that such action did not annul the strike vote. Before word came that the north western unions had struck In spite of the agreement with Reed, Grasser said: "I do not believe the Seattle work ers and operators will strike. If they do, they will strike without the sanc tion of their union."

The barrage fire shook up a veritable wall of mud against these troops as it struck the quavering swamp. Behind it the Tommies holding their guns aloft have swam through the same viscid mess. They twisted and fell ns they leaped from hummock to hummock. Many men lost their footing, plunging face down in the muck. Some were so inextricably mired that their comrades had to yank them out. Gun barrels were choked with mud; cartridges gummed with It. TOMMIES PHILOSOPHICAL. Through it all the Tommies went on philosophically but swearingly cleaning smeared up guns and fighting tooth and nail when they came to clinches with the enemy. The British held all their gains to day despite Bavarian counter uttacks, where the fighting at times was of the bitterest .-character.

REICHSTAG OPPOSING Will OF THE EMPEROR FIRST TINE IN HISTORY Amsterdam, Nov. 1.—If Count von Hertllng withholds his acceptance of j the German chancellorship because he cannot obtain a full majority In the I relchstag, the German parliamentary reformers have achieved an epochal victory. Berlin dispatches today reported this reason for Herllng's non-acceptance. It Is the first time In the history of Germany that a chancellor haa let anything like relchsttag opposition stand In his way. It Is the first time in German history that the relchstag thus Indirectly has managed to Im pose Its will on the kaiser. DISCIPLE OF OLD SCHOOL. Opposition of the relchstag major ity to von Hertllng, it was reported, was due to the former Bavarian pre mier's violent and reiterated opposi tion to all rule of the people. The 74 year-old statesman Is a disciple of the old school of an autocratic ring to conduct the government. Immediately after the kaiser's choice of such an enemy to popular rule was announced, leaders of parliamentary reform groups met nnd unanimously voted to resist his selection. Whether or not this reiehstag ma jority will cause the kaiser's abandon ment of the appointment was not hint ed In Berlin dispatches today. If It does, popular rule In Germany has made an unprecedented advance step. COAL LIMITED TO ONE WEEK'S SUPPLY Chicago, Nov. 1.—Deliveries of coal to Chicago consumers today were Uni ted to a week's supply through the rul ing of the city committee of the fuel administration.

INVADERS WITHIN RANGE OF DEFENSES ON TAGLIAMENTO Washington, Nov. 1.—The great bat tle of the northern Italian plains is swinging into the first stages of its crisis today. With von Mackenzen's hosts now within range of the Tagiia inento river at some points, General Cadorna must soon Indicate his plan of defense along that line. Cadorna apparently is attempting to keep the German command in doubt about his forthcoming stand. Only the barest information is being given out through official channels here to day. Cables indicate the Italians are making a desperate effort to outflank the German brigades, taking advan tage of every feature of the terrain to halt and confuse the advance of the Teutons. LONG BATTLE PREDICTED. It is now believed the high point in the fighting will not be reached before Nov. 7 or 8. It is expected that the struggle will still be la desperate pro gress Nov. 15, when the first great allied conference with America par ticipating. is held in Paris. As a. result of Germany's stroke against Italy an entirely new war pro gram must be mapped out a t this con ference.

Otherwise they would have established a base for new and dan gerous assaults on Italy, Russia and possibly France next spring. LINES DRAWN FOR DECISIVE BATTLE ON ITALIAN PLAINS London, Nov. 1.—Lines for the all declslve battle of the Italian plains were being drawn rapidly today. Gen eral Cadorna haa aklllfully conducted his retreat, hla forces are being mass ed along tha flooded banks of the Tag llamento river; the Auatro-German advance has already slowed up appre ciably and the situation for Italy ap peared slightly better. The greatest menace to Italian safe ty Indicated In dispatches today waa the flanking movement well under way near the Camic Alps, directed by an Austrian army under General von Krobatln. This force Is making a des perate thrust to turn the Italian po sitions on the upper courae of the Tagltamento. Success of such aii op eration would threaten the whole Tag ltamento line and force a further Ital ian retirement possibly to the line ot Plave river.

HIS 400TH SCREEN PLAY Carlyle Blackwell is now at work upon the 400th screen play in which he has acted the principal male char acter and his managers are preparing to celebrate the occasion in every theatre where the picture is shown. Carlyle's publicity agent rises to re mark that theatrical managers con sider a 400th performance of a play a milestone worthy of special mark, so why shouldn't the advent of a 400th screen play, with the same star, be of even greater interest to the public? Why not, we echo, especially as it is a sure thing that no other actor of ths stage or screen has ever approached this record. invading forces have already captured 120,000 Italians and 1000 guns. Today is the ninth day of the drive. In the first four days the capture amounted to 100,000 prisoners and 700 guns. The five succeeding days brought only 20,000 men and 300 guns —indicating a decided slowing up in the offensive power of the enemy. In nine days the German-Austrian Invasion has seized more than 1200 square miles of Austrian and Italian territory formerly held by the Italians 1 and penetrated at some places ns far as 40 miles from the old position, j Rome dispatches today told of a (marked relaxation of the German pres sure on the center of Cadorna's line, due undoubtedly to lack of railways.
