ANTWERP NOW A MENACE Warns the Allies That They Must Not Begin Division of the German Em pire Until They Have Got Hold of It—News From Front Scarce. I .on don, Oct. 12.-11:10 p. m—Karl i urzon of Kedleston, formerly vice roy to India, in a speech at a war meeting at Harrow school tonight said: “Germany has taken Antwerp to fortify it. to keep it. to make a great naval port of it, to use it as a great jumping off place for her future at tempts upon this country. It is no temporary occupation unless we make it so.’’ The speaker added that by fortify, ing Antwerp Germany would secure a grip on the whole of Helghnn, make Hoi.and play her will and then settl** down to her main abject -the de struction of this country. He said Kngland was in for a long war an I declared he was shocked that sonc people should think that the hostili ties would he over by Christmas. In his opinion more than on Christinas would roll by before the ending of the war. In conclusion lie advised his hearers not to begin to divide up the German empire ' u-for - you have got hold of it.” London, Oct. 12.—‘>: 2r. p m.—Tin tinker of tilt* censor having twisted the toriquet on all sources of news tiom Belgium, just now perhaps the most, potentially important scene if the lighting, the British people were forced to content themselves tod:1.v with the official communication front Baris and even a close an lysis of this showed no marked change in the situation favoring either side. From the east came tidings of n decided reversal in form, the d s patclies both from Vienna and Betro- J grad indicating that the Austrian army at I’rzemyal, so often reporte 1 surrounded, hopelessly outclassed and on the verge of surrender, had turn ed on the Russians with the aid of re inforcements and forced them to re treat. The first news of this claim em anated during the morning from the Austrian capital. It was followed later in the day by what purports to be a Petrograd admission that the Russians had abandoned the siege of Przemysl for strategical reasons with tlie object of drawing up a new line against the Austro-Gcrman army in other points of tlalaein. Whatever may be the truth of the situation, the Russians have been claiming an unbroken series of vic tories in their sweep through Galicia and the coincidence of today's dis patches, supplemented as they are by more circumstantial accounts from Vienna of a vigorous Aust.ro-Cerman offensive, seemed to presage im portant news. The British and Belgian troops who retired from Antwerp before the Ger man occupation with the exception of those who now are interned on •Dutch soil as a result of having had to cross the border, have been sfab lowed ui> as completely as if they had lveen buried under the ruined forts. For military reasons their positions and tho area of hostilities in Bel gium must remain obscure until the turn of events tiring them sharply t< the fere again as was the case when after the fall of Antwerp the British public learned for the first time that the British forces had assisted the garrison. Optimistic, as always, the British press, besides contending that Ant werp is of no Importance to Germany Jas a naval base, finds solace in the argument that the release of the a - lied troops there more than counter balances the troops which (brnianv will send from that point into France. The official communication from Paris indicated that this left wing is stretching daily and nightly further west and north and will soon reach the coast, if the opposing sides con tinue throwing out cavalry in an en deavor to outflank or break through. The allies make no claim to victory in tha afternoon statement which opens with the remark that these cavalry operations continue as fat north anti west as llasebroucs, a point, hardly more than a day's walk from Calais. When tlie allies yesterday claimed they had driven the Germans from Aire, London learned for the tits; time that the Germans had made sub stantial progress west from Ar-men tieres, which they reached last week. Presumably the allies still hold the ground they claim to have regained nut Germans are throwing more men westward and tire putting up a liar I tight. The communication does make plain which side holds the town near est the coast. Proballjly stirred by the bond* drop ping exploits of German aircraft over (Paris, London seems to be pre, ared for such visitors and official notice lias been served on persons living near the mouth of the Thames that they should be ready to seek their cellars at the first sound of liring as there will be no time to spread the news in any more formal way. Australia Sends More Troops. London, Oct. 12.-—The official press bureau tonight announced that the British war office had accepted the offer made by Australia to send over another light horse brigade with a field ambulance corps. It has been decided that $125,000 of the $285,000 wihich the women of Can ada subscribed for hospital purposes will be devoted to the purchase of motor ambulance cars and the remain der will be used in equipping a naval hospital with 1,000 beds. -o DESPERATE ALLIES AND GERMANS IN WEST. ERN FRANCE CONTINUE THEIR DESPERATE STRUGGLE. THE ALLIES WERE WAVERING At One Time But Recovered Lost , Ground and Are Now in Stronger Condition Than Ever—War Office Reports No Change in Lines. London, Oct. 13.—3:11 a. m.—The Daily Mail's correspondents sends a dispatch dated Sunday behind Lie French left wing. He gives in treat ing news of the conditions prevailing in tliis field of operation and says that since Thursday conditions for the al lies changed forthe worse, then again for tlie 'better and that their position ai the time of sending tile despatch was stronger than ever. "The fighting around Arras,” says the correspondent, "lias been exceed ingly severe since last Tuesday and Lens has changed hands at least three times in as many weeks, li tlie Germans could succeed in break ing through at some t art their dewpei ate program might prevail, ibut so fa they have failed and got their forces hopelessly scattered.” From the Battle Front, via Paris, Oct. 12.—11:40 p. in. The battle field northwest of Lille was the point or greatest interest in today's news of the great conflict which already has lasted 2 Mays. The cavalry of both armies has swept about the country for days seeking to go through O' around the opposing lines and every where has encountered the enemy. A successful ruse carried out by a. detachment of French infantry in the vicinity of Lens is related in the orders of the. day. IHaving been or dered to hold a position the small squad did so troughout the day but at dusk the detachment was compell ed to retire before au overwhelming force of Germans. Reaching a coun try estate the French commander placed a number of men in tiie last outlying houses with orders to re main until they heard the bugle call. The rest of the party took up a posi tion a quarter of a mile further on in the open country. The Germans continued their pur suit without noticing the French rifle men in the houses. A Imgle sounded and fire was opened l>oth on the front and the rear of the German forces which after losing many men retreat ed. The French recovered their orig (Continued from Page 2.) TAKE STAND WILL NOT HEREAFTER HELP IN ADVERTISING UNLESS CONDI TIONS ARE BETTERED. LEDGERWOUD'S SUGGESTION Police Judge Says New Ordinance Should be Passed That Will Prevent Hotel Men Using Hack Service as a Subterfuge on the depot plat forms. Tim Hot Spilngs Garland County Medical Society, represeting us it does the i lysioians of Hot Springs, who are among the foremost of its citizenship, inst night discussed local conditions, looking to a betterment of generalities, and particularly applying to a correction of the drumming evil and the aggravating conditions that surround the deinit platforms, with the result that a resolution was adopted in effect that unless such conditions are bettered they will not hereater lend their influence or give their financial support to advertising tills resort. The resolution was offered by I>r. K. H. Martin and was unanimously adopted. It recalled the untoward conditions that exist, pointed them out in detail, and carried with it an ur gent appeal to the citizenship of Hot Springs to join in so changing the local surroundings that Hot Springs wc.uld profit by the favorable adver tising from well pleased visitors, as well as go in its pocket for money to pay for further exploitation in the I'res* or me country. Probably the most effective feature of the meeting was a very frank ex pression from Police Judge Vernal Ledgerwood, brought about after May or McClendon had expressed himself on the situation. Judge Ledgerwood stated that it was his desire to help bettor conditions in (Jot Springs, that he accepted the physicians as men of high standing, that he believ ed their standing did as much for the resort as the healing hot waters, and that he would co-operate with them in every way, and wanted, if they so cared, (hat they come to his court and there find proof of his sincerity. Judge Ledgerwod in speaking of the conditions at the depots in particular, stated plainly that tlie subterfuge employed by the hotel men in engag ing in hack business gave them legal right of the depot platform and that if the city council would pass an or dinance prohibiting haekmen from getting on the platform, he believed much of the trouble at the depot would end. “Could you draw an ordinance that would cover the situation?” asked Mayor McClendon “I could, <ind would do so," answer ed Judge Ledgerwood. It was agreed that the ordinance would be draM’n and presented at the special meeting of the council some time this month for adoption there. i he disposal of the "warning’’ sounded by the government repre sentative on the train was uncertain. Some of the physicians were not so sure he was an injury. Most of them, however, believed that he should he the silent sentinel of the government, and that his warning, however well meant, was misunderstod. and work ed to the injury of the city. The meeting was called to order by President Dr. Leonard It. Kills, and Secretary Dr. 'Mount was at his post. The first topic was that of “Cleaning sidewalks and flushing of streets,” which was discussed by Drs. T. E. Holland, Howard Codings, Con nell, and A. U. Williams. All favored a cleansing of the sidewalks by wash ing process, and this to he done early in the morning and so as to be ef fective. “Sanitation of streets, alleys and yards” was discussed by Drs. Wooten, Mayor McClendon, and others. I>r. Wooten thought far more important than the White Way was the estaib lishment of an incinerating plant, lie said the hoard of public affairs should purchase such a plant, and that senti ment for this demand should be creat ed. Mayor McClendon said that the city was progressing rapidly, and that it would be impossible at this time | to take care of the expense on the I revenue, aud that the inc inerating ( plant purchase would better be delay •■(I until after the bond amendment is effective. 'The man on the train" subject brought about a discussion which was opened by Dr. Weil, who believed that the warning issued was a mis take. lie joined with all others in wanting: the government representa tive to remain on the train, lint op pose! the warning, lie said that tli agent hud been put there to serve a ■tmrpose. had served it and on '.lit to ba removed. Dr. Estelle Holland joined in thi sentiment, stating that at other re sorts people are given favorable im pressions before they reach them, while here they were put unnecessar ily on guard. Dr. Donnell told of Incidents in which visitors were ftightened after they heard the warning, and wonder ed if It Wits safe to remain hero. II)r. Simpson thought that the warn ing should lie changed to lie a boost for the city and its people. Dr. E. II. Martin said the speech should be eliminated and the man lo pt on the train to guide and assist visitors and lie useful to them instead of detrimental. Iir. Hallman sail! il seemed In lie the lumnnimotis sentiment that the man should he retained, and that bis warning should lie stopped. 'Dr. Parks, superintendent of the reservation, said the, warning .had not been analyzer! 'properly. HeSinterpret ed it as a boost. He asked that Secretary Mount read the warning s i the physicians could point out ob jectionable paragraphs. Dr. Martin said that tile warning as read by Dr. Mount did not seem so harsh as spoken by blue coated gov eminent agents on the train. Dr. P. M. Williams did not think there was any thing objectable in the warning, and he jocularly suggesi ed tlia.t the association send Dr Mount to offer it to the incoming vis itors. Mayor McClendon said that lie thought, the speech by the* government was a boost and not a knock, and that the trouble was here in Ho, Springs and not on the trains. Dr. Thompson recalled that the* speech stated that it was against tie law to solicit patronage at the. depots, when the visitor stepped off the trains, and there he was met by hordes, therefore it suggested unlaw ful conditions here. lirs. Hallman, Forbes, Fewkes, Me. Connell, YVinegar, Holland and Walli cr thought the warning should be eliminated and that the agent should he a guard against drumming on Hie trains, and an assistance to Invalid and help seeking visitors. President M. A. Elseie of the Bud ness Men’s League asked the pbysi elans to attend the League meeting tonight to further discuss the ques tion. “The protection of the visitor’’ was the subject that brought forth the discussion of the evening. Mavoi McCylendon opened the discussion with some very trank statements. He said that he had been trying to pro tect the visitor and had found it to be an utter failure. He said he had been here for years and conditions had never been so bad. He ha 1 spoken to Captain of Police Bray and Bray had said through his experience here as an officer conditions had never i>een so bad at the depots. “In the worst days of the old drumming they cleared the platform,’’ said May or McClendon, “and now the drum mers work up to the train cars. The drummers run to the cars, two or three grab at grips at once, they pop whips in the faces of the visitors, and holler at them like they were cattle," said the mayor. He said tin railroad attorneys had told him that the hotel drummers were trespassers, but that they could not fret convic tions in the city courts. “I as mayor have no power or remedy," said Mayor McClendon. "I can only Instruct. That is as far as I can go.” Dr. Forbes said he did not think there was another resort in the coun try where people were treated on ar rival as they are here. They are pulled and hauled, he said, and he re cital several incidents where it had come to him that tliree and four drummers were after a single man witl. a suit case half way up Central avenue. He thought the police judge would act if they got evidence, hut they must get the evidence on which to convict. He spoke of the recent O'Urien case, and said that lack of evidence was responsible for such conditions. He thought the citizen ship would have to go to the depots and get evidence in order to get re sults. Dr. Martin then offered his resolu tion. which was later adopted. He recalled how Sodom had been crush ed localise of its wickedness, ami that Hot Springs should protect Itself against abuses if the city was to grow. He believed that the present percentage of visitors well treated was better for the future than mop visitors here under conditions that left unfavorable impressions. CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO.
