All advices to-day indicate that the situation in Poland, from the Polish allied standpoint, is approaching a crisis.

Meanwhile the resistance of the Pol ish army, which had apparently been itiffening, has again relaxed under the tremendous pressure of the bolsheviki armies. Warsaw, from which the Rus sians are now but 60 milci distance, seems critically menaced, if not doomed to capture. Americans remaining there have received official intimation that they stay at their own risk. Coincident with the serious military developments comes an announcement from Moscow that a soviet govern ment has been set up in the portions of Poland which the bolsheviki have overrun.

City Engineer Ruggles Recommends That Its Use Be Limited to v Light Loads Other City Bridges Report- ea On. The Granite street bridge was re ported by City Kngincer Ruggles last night to be in such bad condition that it was not safe' for heavy loads, the steel having rusted and the planking being worn. His recommendation was that the bridge be posted against pas sage of all except the lighter loads. The report was made in connection with a general report on the bridges of the city, in which the engineer re ported that most of the dozen bridges were in good shape except for minor re pairs. . Chief criticism against the mainte nance of the bridges was in the man ner of repainting the steel structures, a policy of daubing paint over rust having been followed, apparently, with the rust still working beneath th? new coat of paint. The engineer recommend ed that all steel bridges lie scraped thoroughly before being touched with paint. Briefly stated, the report on the bridges was a follows: Ayers street bridge needs painting and repairs; Mill street bridge is, as a whole, in good condition; Jail brunch temporary bridge will not stand high water and ice pressure; Granite street bridge very had and not safe for heavy loads; Black well street bridge rusting badly; Prospect street bridge is in "excellent" condition; Berlin street bridge is in good condition but needs repainting; Willey street bridge is in excellent condition but needs painting and re pairs; North Main street cement bridge excellent; three bridges over Gunner btook to east of Main street need some repairs. The report of the social worker for June and July told of progress being made in that department and that 'there are now 238 cases known to this department and these are now being registered with the state social serv ice exchange in Bitrlington." The re port was accepted and placed on file. Miss Gridlev, also reporting for the charity department, asked for $075 to meet Julv bills and the amount was ordered paid. The fire committee recommended that a permit be given to H. Habeeb for a gasoline tank and pump on Pros pect street and the permit was grant ed Besides the warranet for the chari ty department, the council ordered to be paid the sum of $105,133.11 to the National Life Insurance Co. of Mont pelicr, the amount covering tempor ary loans during the year, notes and bonds and interest on the same.

'MILLIONS LEFT,' SAYS POM AfterJVIeeting A Obliga tions, Great Ru n Com- . hps PONZI CON tfJERING OFJcga, TO SELL No Evidence of Criminality, Yet Found by Official - Investigators ' Boston, Aug. 3. The run on the wUni,i.it,aa ITv.t,fl ntro cotnnnnv. headed by Charles Pouzi, who claims to have made millions by operations in foreign exchange, was resumed to-day by hun dreds of investors who were attracted by the financier's promise to pay them 50 per cent interest in 00 days. The company continued to meet rne de mands of holders ofjtumatured notes for their principal and, it was said, that holders of unmatured notes re ceived the promised interest also. Ponr.i in a statement again asserted that his business was solvent. He estimated that up to last night he had paid out about $3,500,000 during ths run which began a week ago. He added that he would "have million left" after meeting all obligations and that he was "still considering the offer of a New York banker," whom he did not name, to buy his business. "The banker and his French partners," Ponzi said, "will have a conference with me to-day." In spite of Ponzi's assurances to of ficial investigators and the public, a line of claimants commenced to form in front of the office in Pi Alley before daybreak. The first investor was there at three o'clock bearing an unmatured thousand dollar note that was issued on July 23. A score of persons were on hand by five o'clock and an hour later the line extended to City Hall avenue. The offices open at nine o'clock. All of the early arrivals said they were holders of unmatured notes. Slightly augmenting the crowd were some depositors from other New Eng land cities where branches of the Se curities Exchange company had been established. In a majority of such branches' holders of unmatured notes have been required to give 48 hours' notice of desire to, withdraw, but they were able to procure their money on demand here. Matured notes, it was said, have been paid upon demand at the branches. Edwin L. Pride, the auditor ap pointed by United State Attorney Daniel J. Gallagher to investigate Ponri'a accounts, has been finishing thn work on the books, but said it would require several days more to complete it. Mr. Pride announced that he had found no indication of criminality as far bs hia investigation had gone.
