".-" jf would -seem, that Aha; soviet horsemen are advancing almost without serious opposition.' On Friday, the bolsheviki were' reported fighting the Poles near Myszyniev, near the East Prussian border.

Polish . troops have been entrenching their., lines east of Mlawa,. which is 'situated on the rail road line running f rom Warsaw to Danzig. It is believed they will make desperate effort to prevent the capture of this city by soviet armies.

Przasnysz, a city about 41 miles directly north of Warsaw has been captured by bolshe vik cavalry, which is sweeping in broad lines .westward along the Prus sian frontier, according to an official statement isfnied here to-night. Smal ler detachments are approaching Nla wa, about nine miles further west, and some have' been reported near Giecha now, still nearer this city. This is one of the most rapid strides the soviet forces have made since they crossed the Orzyc river in their push, designed to cut the Warsaw-Danzig railway. (By the Associated Press). Russian bolshevik attacks apparent ly have broken the Polish lines near the East Prussian frontier, and soviet cavalry patrols have swept forward in a great encircling movement north of Warsaw. In the center of the Polish front the soviet armies also seem to have torn a great gap in the defense of Warsaw. Przasnysz, a city 41 miles north of . .. - , . pared to take instant action ngainst the bolsheviki as a consequence of the latter' refusal to grant Premier Lloyd George's request for a ten days' truce with the Poles.

In order to acquaint the public with the general telephone situation, and some of the reasons for delay in completing new installations chief among which is the difficulty of getting the numerous kinds of necessary material we have prepared a series of announcements, of which this is the fourth. Over Forty-One Thousand Telephone Stations Have Been Added to Our System Since January 1, 1920 Notwithstanding difficulty in -providing equipment we have added to our system so far this year more telephones than there are in the combined cities of Lowell, Lawrence and Lynn. . Even in times when telephone equipment wras plentiful and quickly obtainable, and the demands for our service were normal, we would have been proud of such an unusual development Under present conditions it is by far the biggest job we have ever done. But yet applications are being received faster than we can provide for them; and to-day we have - - r Over Twenty-Four Thousand Orders Awaiting Completion We believe that our first obligation is to protect the existing service. Before we provide for new business we. must be sure to properly take care of existing business. To do otherwise would mean a deteriorated and unsatisfactory service for all. . . . Present indications are that it will be many months before we shall be able to provide for all the new telephone service that is desired. Meanwhile, we will continue to secure all the equipment possible and use the resourcefulness of our engineers to provide substitutes for that which is unobtainable. ". We are counting upon the people of New England to recog nize that under existing conditions we are doing our best to first protect their existing service and then to provide for additional service as promptly as possible.

PREFERENTIAL RATES ARE EXPLAINED Admiral Benson Says the Provisions Inserted in the Law Are De signed to Offset Discrimi nation By Other Nations, Washington, D. C, Aug. 0. Provi sions of the merchant marine act giv ing preferential rail rates on export and import commodities carried in American bottoms are in line with practices adopted in Germany, Japan, France, Spain and other countries, Ad miral Benson, chairman of the United States shipping board, declared in a letter to Commissioner of the Port W. T. Christensen of Seattle, Wash., made public here to-day. These provisions were Inserted by Congress at the request of the shipping board, Admiral Benson said, and are designed to offset "the countless dis criminations by other nstions against American shipping with which the shipping board ships and privately owned vessels of the United States have had to contend.". "Allowing a differential export rate lower than the domestic rate upon the rail shipments within the country is purelv a domestic prerogative," the chairman declared. "Each nation may unquestionably determine for itself that such rate may be made and that they shall be limited in application to cargo carried in vessels of its nation als. The board of trade report to the British government made in 1918 re garding shipping policies conceded that the control of such practice cannot properly be made the subject of such a treaty." Chairman Benson's letter wss in re ply to one from Commissioner Chris tensen, who declared that since the major part of the oriental commerce ith Puget Sound was carried by for eign vessels, tne enforcement of ine discriminatory features of the mer chant marine act might result in the division of that commerce to Canadian ports. Admiral Benson said that threats of foreign carriers to transfer their Pacific roast operations to Van couver, should preferential rates be granted for American ships, were not worthy of consideration. "Unless American ships be substi tuted for foreign thips in the carrying the greater part of your oriental commerce," the chairman said, the shipyards of Puget Sound, which have given employment to many thousands of workmen, bringing abundant pros perity to your community, must close their gates, dismiss their employes and. as an industry cease to exist. Few, if any, repairs to foreign shipping are made in American yards, nor does the use In our trade with foreign ships en courage the building of American ships in American yards, the benefits of which should be apparent to the mer chants in other business interests of Puget Sound." Discussing the giving of preferen tial rates in other countries, the chair man said that France had given a 20 per cent discount upon export freight moving in French vessels to New york and other ports, including' those of Great Britain, and that Spain also was using that method along many other preferentials in the way of subsidies and subventions with Spanish ships. "Japanese ships in the psst," he said, "were able to quote the same rates to interior points in Japan as other nations were able to quote to the seaports of that country, a differential quite sufficient to have enabled them in the absence of like preferential rates within the United tSates for our own ships, to control the rail routings with in the United States, and they have done so in many instances to the dis advantages of American ships and, at times, torertain American ports."

Bicycling events of the seventh Olympic games liegan to-day at the velodrome with the best amateur cyclists of eleven nations scheduled to compete in the rices tak ing place there. As bicycling baa for years been the most favored sport in Belgium, and the Belgians themselves entered a strong team, it was expect ed that the velodrome would be crowd ed to rapacity.

New York, Aug. 17 The special com mittee of the Unitsd States Golf as sociation, sent abroad early this sum mer to confer with rules of golf com mittee at St. Andrew's, not only set tled a number of points which lied come up for decision, but also decided upon a uniform code on both aides of the Atlantic, so that the spirit end traditions of the game Will be pre served, it was announced here to day. Changes made in the rules affect the stymie, the lost ball penalty, amateur and professional definitions, the stand ardized ball and other minor details. All of these changes take effect Sept. 1 of this year, with the exception of the standard ball ruling, which will go into effect in May, 1921. The new rules, in brief form, are as follows: Professional definition: "One who after attaining the age of 1ft years has carried clubs for hire, received any consideration, either directly or indi rectly, for playing or for teaching the game, or for playing in a match or tournament, or for a money prize in any tournament. ' Every application for reinstatement for amateur status will be considered on ite own merits, but a player may not be reinstated. more than once j and any applicjin for reinstatement must have acted so as to come within the definition of en amateur golfer for a period of t):ree consecutive years, immediately preced ing the date of the application, while no one who has been a proiession.11 for five years or more shall be eligible for reinstatement." An amateur is one who has not done any of the things above mentioned de fining a professional and violations of the amateur rule include: Lending! one's name or likeness for the adver tisement or sals of anything except as a dealer, manufacturer or inventor thereof in the usual course of business.; or permitting one's name to be adver tised or published for pay as the au thor of books or articles on galf of which one is not actually the author. Lost Ball Penalty Improved. In future, there will be the same penalty for lost ball, unplayable ball and out of bounds; in other Words, the player must go back to where he played from and lose stroke and dis tance and a provisions! ball may be played to save time, in each case. The stymie definition states that a stymie is laid when both balls are on the putting green and the opponent's ball lies in any position which the play er regards as interfering with his line to the hole, provided the balls be not within six inches of each other. The rule then provides that "if the oppo nent lay the player a stymie, the i lay er may remove the opponent's ball; the opponent shall then be deemed to have holed in his next stroke." It the goii er plaving within the boundaries of the putting green lays himself a stymie. the rule does not apply. The rule regarding the standardised ball requires that the wetght of the ball shall be not greater than 1.62 ounces and the size not less than 1. 62 inches in diameter. The rules of gplf committee and the executive commit tee of the United States Golf nssoeia tion will take whatever eteps they consider necessary to limit the power of the ball with regard to distance, should any ball of greater power be introduced. These changes in the rules will re quire the rewriting of several, and this will be accomplished, as eoon as me Roval and Ancient committee submit its draft for consideration by the U. S, G. A. so thst the wording will be uni form in both countries. How About Their References It's a big job clothes have in keeping you stylish and comfortable at all times.
