n olllclali
dispatch to Uo Italian . embassy at
Washington yesterday, from Komo
said that the ; Julian and French
troops In their offensive in Albania,
which is continuing, liave iaptured
1000 prisoners, Including 50 officers,
several airplanes and much war ma
terial Successes won by the allied troop.
In Albania, according to a London
dispatch, will add seriously to tho
troubles of the Austrian;). They were
won by a fresh, determined action in
the Balkan, area, where any military
success must always have immediate
and valuable political reaction.
The line on which lighting is going
on at present runs from tho Rlv.w
Devole to the Adriatic,, a distance ol
over 70 miles. In attrition to the
French and Italian troopi engaged In
the battle, Albanian troops, under
Kssad Pasha, are fighting against the
Austrians and because of their famill
arity with the country, are In a posi
Hon to give valuable assistance.
Although the region of the allied
advance Is 70 miles from the Salonik'
front, there are already signs ol
nervousness among the enemy troops
In that area. The advance In Al
ban la Is a serious threat to the right
flank of the Bulgar armies in tin
region of Monastir. This is evident
ly appreciated by the enemy and i;
will have, too, the effect of bringinp
to .the sldo of the allies many froir
the hill tribes, which aro among thr
finest fighters in the world. Ever)
fresh success of the allies will hasten
tho south Slav races, who are a'rend)
In revolt against their Austjiar
rulers. ' . -
' A further short advance will brinr
the allies to Borat, tho chief town ol
southern Albanian, and It Is sign! fl

admit the progress of the French an.l
Tlaliars.
The text of tho official statement
Issued by the Austrian war office las'
night reads:
"In the nrcnta valley our reserve
troops repulsed an Italian advance.
"In the face of pressure from
strong enemy forces, our southern A'
banian front has been wlthdrawr
across the Beral-Flerl line. Smcf
yesterday morning the fighting activi
ty there has been very moderate."

embly. Or. Sakuc Takahaslil. Professor of
nternalional Law at Tokio Universi
y, is quoted as saying:
"Japan's defeat of Russia exposed
tiiHsiu's weakness, especially to the
aiser: hence Japan is probably re
sponsible for Russia's collapse and It
s Japnn's duty to save her. I think
'resident Wilron errs in placing Ilol

ban ever was Russia in the old

Professor Takahashi says that the
salvation of Siberia should be carried
nit by supplying the people with
ecessarles and by conserving the
means of transportation for men and
naterlal. To put these measures In
'o effect, he says, Japan must send an
rmy strong enough to gain the con
'dence of the anti-ltolshevikl and to
nrotect men, material and railways.
Professor Takahashi proposes to
nake Siberia a buffer State In order
o counteract German penetration In

MRS. FRANK M. CRAWFORD
Estimable Woman Resident Passed
Away Early This, Morning. j
Agnes J. Stone, daughter of tho!
late Seymour Stoue of Bennington
and wife of Frank M. Crawford, died ;
at her home on Park street early this
morning, after a long and painful Ill
ness. Mrs. Crawford , had . been in
failing health for the past threo years
and had been confined to her bed
during the past few weeks. Her suf
fering at times was., Intense, but she
was uncomplaining and so long as
she was conscious maintained an un
failing Interest in her homo and, her
friends. Her appreciation of every
act of kindness o the part of her
neighbors and attention to hor com
fort will long be remembered.
Mrs. Crawford was la her 59th year
at the time of her death and for a
quarter of a century her home had,
been the house In which she passed!
away. Itoth the interior and the ex-
terlor radiated her home-loving per-j
sonality. She was passionately fond1
of flowers and each season the abund-j
ance of bloom that responded to her
painstaking care and which was so!
freely distributed to her acquaintances
made her garden one of the beautiful
spots In the village.
An inly child she left few surviv
ing relatives, but her never-falling
generosity, her sympathy for all who
were afflicted and her thorough hon
esty of act and thought had endeared
her to many who will" learn of her
death with the deepest regret.
Arrangements for the funeral have , sustained the point of order raised

will probably be held from the house 1 nsylvaala against retaining the Gore

Gore Prohibition Amendment
Kept in Food Bill. !
ITS ADOPTION EXPECTED
Prohibits Sale of All Alcoholic Drinks
After Jan 1. "Wets" Concede
Their Outlook Unfavorable.
Washington, July 10. The like!!-1
hood of nation-wide prohibition becom
ing effective on Jan. 1 next for the
remainder of the war assumed a
tangible aspect today when the Sen
ate, 36 to S3, voted to retain the Gore
bone-dry amendment in the Food
Stimulation bill, the "drys" gaining an
unexpected victory.
The Senate action came on a rul
ing made by Senator Saulsbury,
President pro tempore, in which he
amendment in tne rood measure,
Senator Penrose, urging ,a ruling by
the Chair today, reiterated that the
prohibition amendment touched upon
matter extraneous io the bill, and un
der parliamentary proceduro ought to i
be cast out
The President pro tempore. In sus
taining the point of order, ruled that
the Gore amendment embraced spec!
al legislation in a general appropria
tion bill. Immediately Senator Jones
ot Washington, one of the foremost
prohibition advocates, challenged the
Chair's ruling. .Uter two and a half
hours of debate the Senate overruled
the Chair.
On this ballot. Christie Uenet, the
,,cw senator from South Carolina,
who was appointed by the Governor
t0 succeed the late Senator Tillman,
voted lo overrule the Chair, aligning
himself with the "dry" forces.
The vote convinced Senate leaders
llhat the fight to nut the prohibition
rider through with the Food bill prob-
al ly wou'd be won. In the vote on
wiietlier to sustain the Chair there
were Republican ami Democratic, Sen
ators avowedly for nation wide prohi
bition, but who voted to support the
Chair, as they explained, simply from
the parliamentary viewpoint. These
Senators, now that the Gore amend
ment has been retained, will veto for
It when the bill conies up for final
passage.
Under the Gore amendment the sale
of distilled spirits would be prohibited

for the period of the war: after Nov

est investigation to dircover that the

homo on River stroet and the store
was opened. It was evident that con
siderable clothing had been stolen for
