Goldsall, formerly a private in the French army, was ar rested here today and the federal authorities were asked to return him to France. According to the papers in the case on which the warrant of arrest was issued, Goldsall has been indicted In France. It is alleged that after be ing invalided from the French forces Goldsall came to the unnea States with one of the French of ficial missions and while not officially attached to them, went about the work of letting motor truck contracts for the French army. Investigation of the operations, the papers in the case say, disclosed that he exacted commissions ranging from 5 to 20 per cent, from American manuiacturers, from, whom he bought. John B. Stancbfield of New York, headed a group of lawyers who were here today to look after Goldsall's interests. Goldsall, it is said, some time ago, was authorized by the New York Suoreme Court to change his name from Godsol to Goldsall on pe tition that his name Was too Ger manic. In addition to indicting him, the French army already has ordered Goldsall back- to active service. Be saving "in the littles." A little economy is just as worth while as a big one.

Unfortunately there will be no festivities to mark the occasion to day, except perhaps among those Serbs who, exiled, are looking forward to the day when their land will be treed from the invader and restored to its rightful owners. . , In the fourteenth century Serbia was a kingdom embracing a large part of the Balkan territory, but in 1389 the country fell under the yoke of Turkey. After centuries of strug gling, Serbia became a principality under the suzerainty of Turkey, land in 1878 became completely free. On March 6, 1882, the reigning prince, Milan IV., proclaimed himself king. Serbia's career as a kingdom has been a stormy one, and the quarrel with Austria which precipitated the greatest war in history had its origin in the period when Serbia was fight ing for freedom. In the revolt of 1876 when Turkey was weakened by its war with Russia the Serbs, aided by their kinsmen of Bosnia and Herze govina, the very flower of the Serb race, were completely successful. It was the ambition of the Serbs to join in one state Bosnia, Herzegovina and Serbia proper, but in this project they were foiled by Austria. For two cen turies Austria had been fighting its way toward the south, and the Aegean sea, and the Vienna government was bitterly opposed to the formation of any powerful nation to bar its pro gress. So it came about that while Serbia became independent, Bosnia and Herzegovina were left nominally under Turkish rule, but, for all prac tical purposes, in the clutch of Aus tria. Hating the Austrians quite as cordially as the Turks the people c Bosnia and Herzegovina rr-e in in surrection, and, with the sympathy and assistance of the Serbians, were able to carry on a war for over four years. By retaining Bosnia and Herze govina and the Dalmatian coast Aus tria defeated the Serbian ambition for a powerful state -and a seaport, which nras an economic necessity for the Serbians. After the Balkan war Ser bia was again foiled by Austrian dip. loniacy, which compelled Serbia to give up part of her conquests and t remain a landlocked nation. Since: Serbia became an independent principality in 1829, two families have struggled for supremacy. Karageorge vitch and Milosh Obrenovitch, both peasants were the leaders in the wars for freedom a century ago, and the latter was chosen as the first prince. He abdicated in 1839, and was suc ceeded by his son, Michael IL The lat ter' s brother, Michael in., reigned two years, when Alexander, of the Kara georgevitch family, attained the throne. He was deposed in 1858, and the Obrenovitch dynasty again came into power. Milosh, Michael IIL, and Milan ruled in turn, and the latter became finst King of Serbia in 1882. He was a dissolute and worthless rul er, and abdicated in 1889. His son, Alexander I., was a cruel and immor al tyrant, and he and his queep, Dra ga, were assassinated in 1903. The Karageorgevitch dynasty was then re called, in the person of King Peter, who now shares the exile of the ma jority o his countrymen. WAR SCHEDULE OF PAINT SHADES.
