ALLIES CLAIM GERMANS ARE THROWN BACK Violent Fighting on Armies' Flank During Past Three Days Is Still Undecisive Lull in Eastern Theatre o! War. RUSSIA PLANS BATTLE IN PRZENYSL Reports Indicate Kaiser's Forces Are Pre paring Attack on City of Antwerp At An Early Date. Petrograd, Sept. 28.—A Bucharest dispatch to the Vovoe Vremye says it is rumored that the First Rumanian Army corp9 has been ordered to the Austrian frontier. London, Sept, 28.—Widely separated wings of the opposing armies in North ern France still ar striking hard blows at each other in an effort to break through their respective posi tions. Both sides, according to the French report this afternoon, have made some progress the Germans on the allies' right, perhaps, the greatest. Tonight however, a French statement says that the enemy has been repulsed all along the front that the French are making progress on their left, and continue to gain ground in the Woere district. For three days or more, a violent battle has been raging in the hills and on the plains between the river3 Oise and Somme. Official accounts both German and French, are silent about how it is going, but in the front attack on the Germans' strong ly fortified and well reinforced posi tions. Farther south, the allies have made slight progress, the Germans, apparently being satisfied to remain on the defensive until the battle on the flank is decided. There has been a lull in the fight ing in Galicia, while the Russians are. perfecting their plan for investing Phzemysl, which is now cut off from all communication with the outside world. The Russians have taken Rzeszow, an important railway cen ter between Tarnow and Przemysl they have captured two fortified po sitions to the north and south of the latter fortress. This gives them pos sesion of the whole of Galicia, with the exception of the narrow western neck at the head of which stands Cracow. Along the western frontier of Poland, which the Germans have been threatening for some time, they now are reported to be fortifying themselves. There are signs of activity in the Adriatic, where the Anglo-French fleet has been waiting in hope of meeting the Austrian fleet itself. The allies have taken the islands of Pela gosa, and Lisst, which are splendid bases for small craft wishing to in tercept bigger vessels entering the sea. Additional skirmishes have been re ported in South Africa. The British have taken Luederitz bay, known as Angra Pequena also, and one or two ports in German southwest Africa. A Central News dispatch from Am sterdam quotes an unconfirmed tele gram from the frontier saying: "It appears the German attack on Antwerp is likely to begin at an early date. For some days past large bod ies of troops have been conveyed from aix-la-Cheppelle, to the district east and south of Antwerp. Heavy siege guns have arrived and are being plac- ed rapidly in position against the southern forts, while on the eastern side heavy cartridge howitzers have been brought up and earthworks con structed." A Reuters Amsterdam correspond- ent says, according to the Telegraaf,. that the whole German line of com munication in Belgium has been for tified to the northwest of Antwerp, where the invaders aire building for tifications and digging trenches. The Volks Zeitung of Cologne says the Germans have placed heavy siege guns around Antwerp. London, Sept. 29.—A dispatch to The Telegraph from Petrograd says on Rnnday a spirited account of the de struction of a Hungary guard and cav alry division in the battle of Grodek, apepared in Russo-Slavo. London, Sept. 24.—A German sub marine recently made a reconnoiter ing cruise to the Scottish coast, ac cording to a letter written by a Ger man sailor and published in the Ger man newspapers. She was 10 days ab* sent from her base and went all along the English coast at times under wa ter, and passed under a British squa dron. "It was the prettiest picture I ever saw," the sailor wrote. "Up there, like a lot of peaceful lambs, lay the' British squadron, without a care and as if there were no German sea wolves in armored clothing. "For two hours we lay there under water on the outposts We could with certainty have succeeded in fetching under a big cruiser. But we must not we were on patrol, and our boat had further .work to do." NOTICE OF HEARING FINAL RE PORT AND MAKING DISTRIBU TION OF ESTATE. STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA, COUN ty of Barnes.

In a great ship's wake flew a flock of gulls, now soaring aloft, anon swooping to seize a bit of garbage. Mile after mile they pursued the ship, •hrleking, soaring or fighting over a piece of spoil. For every one that tired of the long quest and withdrew to rest on the water, two others with ravenous appetites seemed to join In the chase. At times the whir of their flapping wings and the chorus of their raucous screams made a din eclipsing the nose of the ship's propellers. And all they got for their strident effort was an occasional discard from the kitchen. They reminded one of the human retinue of a man of wealth the chaps who hang around to cash In on a dropped tip or snatch greedily a financial crumb. Indeed, the com parison rather favored the feathered followers, for the gulls are useful as scavengers—they help to keep the wa ters clean. REMINDED HER OF YOSEMITE California Woman Not Over-Enthusl* astle Over Her First Imprefr slons of Gibraltar. Some one who was seeing Watkins off the other day made the inevitable remark about visiting "America first." Some one is sure to say that sooner or later, within a week of one's sail ing for foreign parts if not while on* Is packing, he or she says it on the deck of the boat just before the whis tle blows. That is how It was with Watkins, who was going to spend a summer on the Island of Sark, and who had never been to California. "No," confessed Watkins, "I haven't seen the—er—what do you call it Golden Gate? I haven't seen the Gol den Gate. But I crossed a year ago with some California people. They told me a good deal about the Cali fornia climate and how beautiful ths country was. "And," Watkins continued, dream? *,jr' 'the w°ma® rock. Our boat didn't stop at Gibral tar—we just went slowly through the straits, and looked out and up. "The woman from California was beside me, leaning against the rail, looking at Gibraltar, and Algeciras, and beyond to the headlands of Spain. She was mightily Impressed by ths rock. "'It's magnificent!' she said. 'It's wonderful! And what do you think? If I half close my eyes, so that I don't get quite all of It, I can just imagine that I am back home in the Tosemits valley!'"

Waat, REPUBLICAN PLATFORM We, the members of the State Cew tral Committee, representing the Re" publican party, in meeting assembled, reaffirm our belief in, and our loyalty to, the principles of the Republican party as laid down by its founders, and exemplified by its great leaders. I. We affirm our loyalty to the Rw publican principles of protection and believe that the tariff should be so re vised as to reduce the increasing cost of living, nnd at the same time pro* tect mcr 2 equitably our agricultural in terests th:.t the tariff should be rei vised upon t'.-.o principle that the du« ties shall represent the actual diffeN ence between tlio cost of production in the United States and in foreign com« peting countries. We also recommend and urge that tariff revision in the fw ture shall be by separate schedules, We favor the creation of a perman nent non-partisan Tariff Commissloil with ample powers and charged witli the duty of investigating the cost of production, both at home and abroad, and whose findings shall be made di* rect to Congress'. We charge the national Democratis administration with bad faith In the enactment of the present tariff law. That tariff has flooded our markets with the products of foreign factories and farms, while the serious question of advancing cost of living still r* mains unsettled and unanswered. II. We condemn the present Ration al Democratic congress for its wasteful extravagance of public funds. III. We favor such national and state legislation as will develop a mod* era system of farm credits. IV. We believe that the disastrous effects of Democratic misrule upjn ths Industries of this nation have convinc ed our people of the folly of party dia senslon, and that all electors who have In the past affiliated with the party should now unite in a determination to relieve the country from Democratic misgovernment. Experience convinces us that it is only by means of the rule of the Republicaa.party .that industrial prosperity can be restored and mai» tained. V. We recommend and urge that the representation by delegates at the next national Republican conventioa shall be based upon the Republican vote cast in each of the several states, as shown by the official returns there in, at the general election next preced ing the national convention. VI. We heartily endorse Governor L. B. Hanna, and we commend ths present Republican state administra tion as an honest, efficient, and ecoi nomioal administration of the publia affairs of this state. We pledge our support to the RepuM Hcan state and congressional ticket! nominated by the people at the Junq primaries. VII. The primary election law being devised to give to the Individual votefj a direct vote and a large participation! In the political affairs of the state, wel pledge ourselves to the maintenance of «a,d something that the primary principle, and favor only) I never forgot. We were going Bucb modification of the law as wisdom! through the Straits of Gibraltar, and, md practical experience clearly demJ of course, the whole passenger list onstrate will serve to strengthen and was out on deck, staring at the old carry out its purpose. 1 VIII. We affirm our belief In th«| wisdom of the principle of the initial tive and ^referendum. IX. Good roads are of the greatest possible importance to the proper deJ velopment of our state. The extent and excellence of good roads is tha measure of wise economy in the ex4 penditure of state funds. We endorse and urge prompt legislation of thiq character. 1 X. A growing and grave necessity of our Btate is the pressing need ofi getting more people to settle and build| homes upon our rich, extensive vacant] lands. We therefore urge the next legislative assembly to pass such lawn as will Intel) gently and speedily aoj complish this much desired, far-reach* Ing and important purpose. XI. We believe that the time has arrived when a certain limited portion! of our school, institution and capitol building lands should be sold annually for the express purpose of creating a' farm loan fund, thus affording a safa and ready means of investing these trust funds, and giving our farmers a longer loan-time period at low rates of Interest. XII. North Dakota is, and always will be, an agricultural state. We are therefore in hearty sympathy with ev ery movement that has for its pu^ pose the organization and co-operation of the farmers within our common wealth. We pledge them our hearty and earnest support in securing such helpful legislation, both state and na tional, as will secure for them just compensation for the products of their toil. XIII. We favor legislation reducing the maximum contract rate of interest from 12 per cent to not to exceed 10 per cent, and the legal rate of interest from 7 per cent to 6 per cent We also favor a strengthening of our usury laws with proper penalties attached. XIV. We endorse the principle of the tax commission as an instrument of government. XV. The Republican party, believ ing the people competent to settle just ly and intelligently all questions per taining to their collective and indi vidual welfare, and the legislative as •embly having given the electors the opportunity to vote at the next general election upon the question of woman 1 suffrage, we earnestly urge upon tho attention of the electors the Import ance of this question, to the end that the same may be intelligently settled. XVI. We earnestly favor a policy of Strict enforcement of the prohibition law and all other laws on our statute books. XVII. We believe that party pledges must be redeemed and platform prom ises fulfllled. Believing that the ultimate reliance of free proper government is obedlenea to law and the maintenance of liberty and justice among our people, we, a* Republicans, submit this statement of principles and policies and ask the in telligent consideration and Jndgmaal «f the people 0! the state.

The Latent in the Line of Entertainment—Best Money Will Buy. 1 Commissioner Gilbreath, wbo has the management of the North Dakota Industrial Exposition which is to be held in Bismarck October 13 to 24, inclusive, has just closed a contract with the biggest show booking house in America for twelve of the best vaudeville attractions on the Ameri can etage today. They are everything which one could desire, in fact ev erything in-their line which money will buy. Mr. Gilbreath advisee that he has spent $1,009 more for these ar tists than he has in any previous sea son. Briefly enumerated they are: The Menards: Lady and gentleman. Novelty acrobats and equilibrists, just over from England. Beltra and Beltra: Lady and gentle man. Novelty mueical ast, of higb class, carrying 1,500 pounds of scen ery. VAUDEVILLE ARTISTS GALORE one gentleman. A vaudeville cock tail. Latest songs, eccentric dancing Funmakers Quartette: (Colored) The Wayne Trio: Two ladies and THE hunt for new steps and new rhythm bas brought forth a number of striking dances that combine the basic principles of two or three of the older figures. In some of these the tempo of the music changes to fit the dance, but in the later and more complete a new and distinct tempo is carried through out, and the steps are made to lit the melody. The leading Instructors in this coun try have been the pioneers in this mat ter, and the Rowley Downs' "modera tion," Vernon Castle's "half and half'4 and the "pousse cafe" of Miss Winn and Mr. Evans are being tried on near ly every dancing floor In New York, Philadelphia, Boston and possibly Chi cago. Among the earliest ones were Joan Sawyer's "three In one" and "aero plane waits." These were both very pretty, but had one fault In that the tempo of the music was changed at frequent Intervals to (It the different styles of figures. In the recent combinations, however, the action Is unbroken throughout Take the "moderation," for Instances This has a special melody In seven qnarter time and combines the steps of the waits and tango. On the same general principle Is the "half and half," originated by Mr. and lCrs. Vernon Oestla. Thin, too, bas a melody all Its own In five-quarter ttme and combines tho steps of the walta and one step. Word comes from Paris Oat a new dance known as "la danse hypaotiqae" has been introduced there with great •access. It Is said to be very difficult and the highest form attainable In sci entific dancing. The names of the fig ures tend to bear oat thie statement The first is "tiersts." This la fol lowed by "fascination," a suggestion of catalepsy, and then "the hypnotic step." The*i "lethargy." The last figure of all -is "wna." In dancing the "moderation" and the "half and hair* there are no new steps to be learned. The difference Is till with the tempo. Any music seven quarter or five-quarter time Is suitable, and once you have mastered the swing of the music It wUI be a simple mat tsr to dance them. Of course It Is possible to devise steps or change some of the old ones to 'lit a beat In the new motif but, as a rule, the standardised steps go beet In this regard It la well to say a word In favor of the effort to stand ard^e dancing steps. lflss Flora Vorbees, leader In the movement says: "The new dances must be standard ised before they can tfecome actually the expression of the age. But the dancers rush with the coolness of a driver In an automobile race to ball room or dance 'hall, where they frolic ID the Joy of living, bnt few of then Harmony Jubilee SingerB.
