WOULD MAKE COMPROMISE ROME INUNDATED; BRIDGES THREATENED After a long period of inactivity, fight ing between Austria and Montenegro has been resumed. Of the great struggle in Poland, Galicia and Bukowina there is little new information. A decisive bat tie in north Poland is looked for when the retreating Russians reach the posi tions on which they have decided to make a stand. In Bukowina an Impor tant contest is in progress. The long drawn struggle in the Carpathians shows no signs of approaching an end. lioth the Anstrians and the Russian war office claim victories along this front. '- The German newspapers continue to comment on the American notes, some taking the stand that this country's representations to Great Britain are less vigorous than those U Germany. It is asserted that the fault is England's on account of her use of the American flag. A Rome newspaper states that Prince Von ISuolow, the German ambassador to Italy, shortly will make proposals for intervention of Italy in the war on the side of Germany in return for territorial concessions. At the conclusion of the statement, which the newspaper says is made by Frinee Von Buelow, he is quot ed an iaying, "Either Italy will be friend ly towards us or we will treat her worse than we treated England."

Feb. 15. ---Commcrcialired vice is rapidly being drien out of New nrk City and disreputable resorts in every section of the city have almost disappeared in ten years, it ia assert ed by the committee of fourteen organ ised to drive organised vice of the met -ropolilan district, in its annual report made public last night. Within the next 12 month, the committer predicts, the police and the courts will have taken a firm grip on the remnant of vice that fiourishc in tenement house and apart ment buihlii-gs and 1 permitted in a few hotel. To these optimistic statements the committee adda a supplementary report WASHINGTON INTERESTED. In Kaiser's Reported Invitation to Amer ican Ambassador. Washington, l. C, Feb. 13. Press re ports announcing that the German em Jieror has invited Ambassador Gerard to confer with him at the htittlcfnmt were read with keen interest by officials of the I'nited States government. Aside from the indication that the American note had produced an impression of su preme importance-, it was thought that the emperor had decided on a conference so quickly because only four days re main before the German admiralty's pro clamation for a submarine campaign on merchant ships goes into effect. Jt was believed here that the ambas-i sador might explain at length tha Amer- j nan viewpoint, as he is reported to have done in a conference with the Imperial chancellor immediately after the note was presented at the foreign office. In many quarters it was supposed that one of the chief purposes of the informal conference with Ambassador Gerard wss to elicit from the American government home understanding as to its position re garding shipment of conditional contra band destined to trman'a civilian popu lation. Inasmuch as the t'crman sea war rone proclamation is described as a retaliatory step against the allies be cause of the alleged interference by the latter with shipments of foodstuffs des tined for the population of (Jet-many, the growing importance of this question wss admitted tin all sides here. There ia ev ery reason to believe that it w ill be one of the chief point made by the I'nited states in its next communication to (.rest Britain on the question of eon trsband. THINKS U. S.
