Withholds Permission From
Missionaries Who Were
to Aid War Prisoners.
Washington. D. C, Jan. '11. Russia's
approval of the relief expedition for
German and Austrian prisoners In Si
beria camps, headed by American mis
sionaries at Pekin. China, which was
taken by officials here as granted, has
been withheld, it was learned today,
nnd the whole project awaits further
negotiations. The American Red Cross
learned today that the expedition has
been held up at llarmn.
Colncidentally came an official dls
patcl. to the Austrian embassy contain
ing a pointed intimation that unless
Austria's prisoners in Siberian wastes.'
in Servia and in France were better
treated, there would be retaliation
upon prisoners In Austro-Hungary.
Austria's Communications Ignored.
Two requests forwarded by the stale
department to Petrograd from the Aus-tro-Hungarian
government demanding
better conditions have been unan
swered. The Vienna foreign office,
after declaring that the Spanish am
bassador there had testified that Aus
tria's prisoners were maintained in full
accordance with the demands of inter
national law and the dictates of hu
manity, intimated today that stricter
methods would be put into force un
less some assurances were forthcoming
from Sertia and Russia that the prison
camps in these two countries were ren
dered more habitable.
Allege Camp Unsanitary.
It was stated at the embassy here
that conditions In French detention
camps also were bad, especially In the
south, where American inspection had
not been permitted. A special case, the
death of a personal friend of Dr. Duni
ba, the American ambassador, which, it
is alleged, was caused by unsanitary
conditions, has been laid before the
state department. Although the de
tention camps In England. Germany,
Austria-Hungary and parts of France
have been open to neutral inspection,
the officials in Russia and Servia, the
Austrian embassy says, have Ignored
requests for similar examinations.
Hope to Kxtend llellrf.
In Pekin, Austrian and German offi
cials appealed to the Russian legation
and received a promise of cooperation
for alleviation of conditions In Si
beria. After a consultation be
tween Mr. Reinsch, the American
minister to Pekin, and the Russian
minister at that capital, the' American
Red Cross financed a committee of
missionaries of mixed nationalities to
convey supplies of medicine, food and

New York, Jan. 11. The inhabitants
of Edinburgh have "gone crazy"
through fear of a German attack, ac
cording to Gottfried Delitsch, one of
15 British subjects of German birth
who arrived here from England today.
Delitsch's home was In Edinburgh.
"Every one not a native of Great
Britain is under suspicion at the
Scotch capital," he said. "Fortifica
tions have been thrown up in and
about the city, even to the extent of
placing sand bags and machine guns
on the roofs of principal buildings."

Country Devastated; Shiv
ering Refugees Wander,
. Seeking Safety.
Petrograd. Russia, Jan. 11. The dev
astation and desolation of the war in
the eastern theater was witnessed dur
ing a recent visit to Warsaw by Amer
ican ambassador and Mrs. George T.
Jlarye and Raymond Baker, secretary
ot tne emDassy. They went close to
the battle line west of the city.
Mr. Baker, in recounting details of
the experience, said:
"At one point we were close enough
to hear the intermittent spitting" of
the machine guns. In the marvelously
constructed underground rooms, we
saw the soldiers then off duty gath
ered around small fires and singing.
By peering through chinks between the
sand bags lying on top of the trenches,
we could see the curious vista of the
country between us and the fighting
Refugee Are HonieleHK.
"The features which most impressed
Mrs. Marye were the utter devastation
of the country, everywhere scarred by
battle, and the stream of homeless and
hopeless refugees scantily clad and
shivering, without the slightest idea
whither they were bound.
"Our objective was the field hos
pital, to which the wounded were being
brought In automobiles and wagons.
Mrs. Marye spent some time here and
visited every one of the wounded, to
whom she distributed cigarets.
"Wounded How to Ambassadress,
"In this hospital were wounded of
all degrees. Some only trivially hurt,
stood up and bowed to the ambassa
dress; others -lay between life and
death. The. hardiness and endurance
of 'these-Russian soldiers struck us as
"Returning to Warsaw, Mrs. Marye
visited other hospitals, one of which
contained 2000 beds and where the pa
tients are. looked after by 50 surgeons
and 400 nurses, the latter being volun
teers from the best families of Russia
and Poland."
Celebrate Russian Ghristlnns.
A letter from Edward II. Egbert,
chief American Red Cross surgeon in
charge of the Kiev hospital, slates
that 340 patients have been admitted
since December 5, of whom only one
has died.
Dr. Egbert writes further:
"Today, Russian Christmas, all who
were able to walk or well enough to
be carried, gathered in a large empty
ward where they were entertained by
professfonal English compedians out
of a job. We had a Christmas tree, and
presents, including war sweaters and
cigarets, were given to each patient.
The American surgeons and nurses
gave a watch to each of the 70 mem
bers of the sanitary squad. A regular
American Christmas dinner was served
to all patients able to eat one.
"I am now attempting to arrange to
have our party sent to some point
where we can be of more use and see
more active service."
London, Eng., Jan. 11. A dispatch
to the Daily Express from Boulogne
asserts that confirmation has been ob
tained of the rumors that the Germans
haTe evacuated Lille and that the city
is now virtually in 'he possession of
the British.

Explosion Annihilates One
Force and Rattles An
other Badly.
Hamburg. Germany, Jan. 11. Har
rowing and exciting details of mining
and blowing up trenches are told by a
German officer in a letter to a local
newspaper, describing in particular the
capture of a strong position held by
the French in the Argonne forest. Many
of the French soldiers were killed and
the others were captured. The crown
prince sent blankets ana w:ne to the
men who accomplished this feat. The
letter follows:
"By the first- of December our com
pany had been under fire for the fifth
time, and the distance between our
trench and that of the French had de
creased from '520 feet to from nine to
13 feet. But the company on our left
was separated from the French by a
vale, on the far side of which the enemy
had laid out three lines of trenches.
"We had come to consider the posi
tion as impregnable. But progress had
to he made somehow. Our pioneer de
tachment, therefore, decided to mine
the French trenches near the position
of our company.
Fear French Mine.
"Some of us feared that the French
would be doing the same thing and
would try to blow us up first. Our
men worked hard for this reason. At
10:30 In the morning our first trench
was cleared of men, and at 10:45 all of
our companies advanced through
actly 11:19 when the pioneer lieutenant
placed his thumb on the electric but
ton. "In front of us shot up a large, black
column of earth and gases. It was fully
600 feet high and when it collapsed a
rain of earth fell down on us. Our
men had taken cover in the woods, and
it was well that they had done so. For
about two minutes it rained great
chunks of earth and rock.
Many Burled Alive.
"When it was safe again in the open
for our companies advanced through
the hole which had been blown in the
French positron. The first trench was
full of dead soldiers and some who
had been buried alive. In the second
and third 'trenches the French were
so Tattled that they surrendered easily.
Inside of half an hour we had taken
the entire force of the three trenches
eight officers and 37S men. Two offi
cers were among the dead.
"We also took. three mine catapults
from the French. Our losses were three
dead and seven wounded. But we were
lucky, indeed. Among the French'
prisoners we took were some pioneers,
who told us that they had mined our
trenches at eight points, but had not
been able so far to place the mines.
They had attempted too much and had

A riiTEMd old soldier commanding the

Wesel, has, according to a report in a.
"Wesel paper, hit upon a novel scheme
for punishing the curious; women wlio
flock in great numbers to see .he pris

denied admittance to the camp, but

to talk to the captives. A number of
these women were taken )n charge by

mandant. His decree was this:
"The women arrested are to be 'con

will peel potatoes for three hours."
The following manifesto, signed by
Col, von Wieters, commandant of the
prisoners' detention camp at Goerlitz,
is published:
"The three young women who felt

Antwerp, Belgium, Jan. 11. "The
help ot the United States is literally
saving us," states a resolution of grati
tude adopted by the lntercommunal
council of Antwerp. i
The resolution reads:
"Our cordial thanks are due to the
American commission for relief in Bel
gium. Our nation was on the brink of
starvation. Famine was being added tt
the horrors of war. In this great city
of Antwern a short time ago, it was im
possible to distribute bread, and now
soup and other food are being given
daily to the poor.
"The help of the people of the United
States is literally saving us. We are
contracting a debt of endless -ratituda
to them. It is a general consolation
that. In the midst of the sufferings
which our people are enduring, the men
and women of the greatest of modern
democracies are in such a splendid way
standing by one of the smallest nations
in the world, which is sufering hor
ribly because it elected to be true tB
its duty and its honor."
Amsterdam, Holland. Jan. 11. "Lille
has already paid 3,400,000 francs as a
war tax; the feeding of German troops
has cost us a million and a half, while
the city's damage from bombardment
Is something over 300.000,000," writes
the mayor of Lille to Gen. von Helnd
rich, the military governor, begging to
be excused from paying an additional
war tax of 3,000,000 francs, which the
governor had demanded.
The governor's reply, according to
the Lille Bulletin, which is now pub
lished biweekly under German super
vision, is that "in view of the quiet be
havior of the population I will altdw
the payment of the remainder to be
postponed for a week." The governor
declined to recognize any obligation on
the part of the Germans to feed the
citizens, and recommended that the
mayor import corn from England.
Berlin, Germany, Jan. 9. No fair pic
ture could be drawn of the Berlin of
war times that did not include mention
of the thousands of wounded In the
streets. In motorcars, in wheel chairs
and in the crowds on the streets, they
are everywhere, limping, maimed and
swathed in bandages.
At one dinner table In the Hotel Ad
ion were four officers, every one of
whom had his arm In a sling and two
of whom had their heads in bandages.
One, a captain, had lost his right hand,
but he had the iron cross of the first
class and he seen ed the happiest in
the party.
Indeed, the cheerfulness of the wounded
contrasted strikingly with the sad
eyes of the many women lh mourning.
The toll has done little to weaken the
spirit of the populace, but it is begin

Havre, France, Jan. 11. The French
army medical corps has set apart three

If a man loses his upse or any part
or his face, or a disfigurement is caused
by a wound, the face will be repaired
by skin grafting, and the latest dis
