WEEKLY REVIEW OF WAR Tho long-awaited Austrian offen sive was launched Saturday along the front of the Italian theater from the northwest of the Asiago plateau east ward to the Piave river and thence along that stream to where it joins the head waters of the Adriatic sea. a front of nearly 100 miles. The Austrian, having made exten sive preparations for the drive by bringing up strong reinforcements in men and guns, are using them with out stint In the effort to debouch from the mountain passes and cross the Piave river and gain the Venetian plains. Everywhere the fighting Is of aa extremely sanguinary character, es pecially east ot the Asiago plateau, in the Brenta valley, and on the Monto Grappa, In the Initial strug gle the enemy succeeded in capturing several front-line positions in the mountain region from the British and also In crossing the Piave. Counter attacks, however, have restored all the positions In the mountains, in cluding territory to a depth of 1,000 yards along a 2,500-yards front cap tured from the British. At last ac counts the allied troops were strong ;ly holding the enemy and King Victor Emmanuel's men were gallantly striving to throw back the invaders across the Piave. The Italian have taken more than 3,000 Austrians prisoners, among them 89 officers. As yet the Vienna war office has given only brief mention to the bat tle, saying that the Austrian armies had Invaded the Settue Comunl plat eau, lying at an altitude of 3,400 feet northwest of Asiago, and that up to noon Sunday more than 10,000 Ital ian, English and French soldiers and a considerable number of guns had been captured.

In this drive ihe German war office claimed the capture of 16,000 men. American troops played a prominent part in the week's activities. In the Chateau Thierry sector they pushed back 'the enemy at several points and recov ered Bellcau wood, recently lost By the French.

Hard fighting still is in progress, however. The number of prisoners taken by the allies has reached 4,500, while the Austrians have captured 12,000. Northwest of Chateau Thierry, es pecially in the Belleau wood, in the Marne sector, the Germans are treat ing the Americans to large waves of gas and sheila. Their efforts have gone unrewarded, however, so far as breaking the line is concerned.

B. & W. Railroad, north of Mer- celina Park, has a way of getting rid of obnoxious visitors that is peculiarly his own, and very effective if not strictly according to legal hoyle. He had an early Sunday morning visit from four St. Marys boys who irritated him to such an extent that he warned them off his bis preserves and of the impending cy clone. They did not take the warning seriously and Joe let fly with his trusted shotgun. One of the crowd, Lazarus Bubt, caught the contents enough for all of them as a local medical fixer found 42 bird shot in the west end of the young man going east. Monday Joe was arrested for neat markmanship, to which he 'fessed up and was given $ 1 and costs. We believe he got his mon ey's worth.

Mr. Staeger proposes to hold the animal until August, when it will again be of fered in some public manner for the benefit of the Y.M.C.A.

Meyers, a well known farmer of Butler township, on the 13th inst., is clearing up several mvs terious thefts in the neghborhood south west of this city. His latest exploit, and the one that has proved his undoing, was relieving a C. N. freight car of cement. soap, prunes, candy, tobacco and other things, a portion of his haul being found at his home. Two or three months ago Mrs. Joe Meyers, a well-to-do widow residing southwest of town, had some wheat she had sacked for market stolen from her premises, and it was recently discovered that Meyers had disposed of it to the lo cal elevators, the sacks being identified by bberilt Fumpurey. At a preliminary hearing last Friday before Justice Scranton, five charges were lodged against Mevers four for burglary and one for grand largeny. As a result he was placed under a bond of 51,000 for his appearance in court, and being unable to come across with it he was sent to the county bastile. Meyers has a wife and four children ond a 70-acre farm. The farm, however, seems to be tied up in such a manner that he cannot dispose of it. Barn and Contents Burned The large barn on the Sam Dixon farm in Liberty township, and most of the contents, were destroyed last Sun day evening by a fire of unknown origin. It was with some difficulty that two val uable horses were saved by Mr. Dixon, so rapidly was the building consumed by flames. The barn and contents were valued at J2,000, partly covered by in surance.

ARMY OFFICER UNDER ARREST Shadow of Complicity In War Graft ing Extends to Scc-es of Business Men, Attorneys, Secretaries of Con gressmen and Others Large Num ber of Cases Not Prompted by Sin ister Motives, it Is Said. Washington, June 19. Lieutenant James C. Staley, a reserve army offi cer, was arrested in New York on a charge of accepting money from the Truofit Raincoat company of New York for a contract which he prom ised to procure. The arrest was the result of the government's pursuit ot illegal profiteers on war contracts. The arrest was made by depart ment of justice agents, who had fol lowed the officer during his Inspec tion of the plant of the raincoat com pany, whose proprietors acted in co operation witn the government to de tect the fraud. Lieutenant Staley made a complete confession of his part in the transac tion, department of justice officials said, and gave much valuable In formation which may lead to the de tection of other cases of fraud. Hs will be tried by a courtmartial. Officials intimated that other ar rests may be made soon in connec tion with the charges on which four men are now under indictment here, conspiracy to violate federal laws forbidding the subletting of contracts and payment of contingent fees. The shadow of complicity has ex tended to scores of businessmen and attorneys In Washington, New York, Boston and other cities, and even to a few secretaries of members ot con gress. These men promised to use their Influence with government offi cials, army officers or members of congress to assure the awarding of contracts to special concerns, and in turn were to receive compensation if the contracts were landed. A large number of these cases, dis closed by correspondence and other documents seized in the simultaneous raids on offices of several hundred manufacturing plants, were not prompted by sinister motives, offi cials believe, and prosecutions will not follow. Many others, however appear the result of carefully planned plots to squeeze millions from con tractors, who In turn were to add the contingent fees to prices which ths government was required to pay. Whether many of the contracts proved tainted with contingent fee fraud will he repudiated by the gov ernment is considered doubtful, in view of the need for speed to produc Ing supplies, but it is probable that the amount of the commissions will bs deducted before final payment is made. DAMAGE CASE COMPROMISED The damage suit brought against the Rockford Electric Light Co. by C. I. Schumm. administrator of the estate of the late Jeanette Schumm. of Blackcreek towimhip, for the sum of 15,000, was brought to a clot in the Common Pleas Court of this citv last Tuesday, when a compromise wan effected by the payment of $ 1, 500 to the plaintiff.
