French Dressmakers Refuse to Sell
Gowns to German From the
Paris,; Nov. "19. The Paiis dress
makers' syndicate has blacklisted two
American customers of Geiman origin
one of them a man named Kurzmann,
reputed to have been commissioned to
buy gowns for Mrs. Norman Gait, who
is to be the bride of President Wil
son, according to Gustav Tery's news
The newspaper avers Kurzmann has
threatened to raise a diplomatic ques
tion because of the modiste's refusal
to accept orders from him. L'Oeuvre
declares, however, that each house
from which he ordered gowns has of
fered to supply them with its compli
ments to Mrs. Gait without having
them pass through the hands of an in
termediary. Paul Poiret, president of the dress
makers syndicate, is absent from
Paris. His confidential secretary,
however, confirmed the statement that
Kurzmann has threatened to raise a
diplomatic question over th'e declina
tion of the modistes to fill his orders
for gowns which he maintains are in
tended for Mrs. Gait.
Syndicate Stands Pat.
"You may declare that no members
of our syndicate will deliver gowns to
Kurzmann, or through Kurzmann or
any other German house," said the
secretary. "At the same time each or
every member of the syndicate would
be proud to be honored with a com
mission to make a gown for President
Wilson's fiancee and would be most
happy if permitted to present it with
Rue de la Paix and other leading
houses refuse tos tate whether or not
they have had orders for gowns.
A Paris dispatch early this month
said Charles Kurzmann of New York
was there to select gowns for the
wedding of President Wilson and Mrs.
Gait. He was quoted as saying that
while it "would be indiscreet to talk
about clothes ordered by the Wrilson
family before obtaining permission

HUSSANE HAS MET
THE BEST OF MAT MEN
SINGE COMING HERE
Chicago, Nov. 21. ) Special.)
When one looks over the record of this
fellow, Hussane, the wonderfully pro
portioned Turk, who is to meet Joe'
Stecker in the big Lincoln match on
Thanksgiving afternoon, one is im
pressed by the fact that he really is
one of the really good foreigners sent
to this country in the last seven or
eight years. There have been a flock
of them at different times, but only a
few of them amount to much.
As a matter of fact the names of
Zbyszko, Mahmout, Hackenschmidt
and Hussane stand out prominently.
The remainder of them and there
were dozens never amounted to more
than passing good. They didn't even
stand up for one season.
It is not generally known that Hus
sane never lost two straight falls dur
ing his entire career, and the single
falls that he did have declared against
him were lost to some great men.
In 1910, when George Hacken
i.thmidt, then the practically undefeat
ed "Russian Lion," was touring the
country in a kind of triumphal man
ner and challenging Frank Gotch, the
champion, right and left, he dropped
into Dallas, Tex., one night for a bout
with some man that the promoter
there had picked out for him. Never
scenting danger in any way. Jack
Curley.then managing Hackenschmidt,
had wired that he didn't care whom
they picked as an opponent.
When the "Lion" walked onto the
mat he discovered Hussane in front of
him. They went to it at once and, to
the great surprise of everybody, the
Turk gave the famous German-Russ
the fight of his life. The first fall
went two hours and three minutes be
fore "Hack" was able to pin the
swathy ones shoulders to the canvas.
And then it was said that Hussane
wrenched one of his knees or other
wise they might have been wrestling
Hussane matched himself with
Zbyszko, the elder, one night in Louis
ville. He believed he could win. They
went on the level, but it took over an
hour before the Turk was convinced
that he was up against it. He weighed
but 185 pounds at the time against
the terrible 235 pounds that the
famous Pole hurled against him.
Departs for California.
This afternoon Rev. Father M. A.
Shine departed, in company with Dr.
Edward Russell and Dr. Simon Rus
sell, of Springfield, Massachusetts',
for a three weeks' visit at points of
interest in California, including the
expositions at San Francisco and San
Diego, and while there Father Shine
will view the old Spanish missions
arid enjoy a trip down into Mexico,
returning home via Texas. Father
Shine and the Drs. Russell are old
schoolmates and friends and the trip
will be very much enjoyed by the gen
tlemen in each other's company.

Berlin Beliees the Beginning of the
End at Hand Still Time to Aid.
Berlin, Nov. 21. (Via London.)
The Serbian army is fighting tonight
for the last time. Doubtless there will
still be guerilla engagements. The
Seibs are at the beginning of the end,
however, so far as further resistance
in an organized body is concerned.
What will inevitably be the final en
counter opened b'-tween the Austrians
and Serbs at the foot of Kopuonik
plateau, southeast of Uaski. The Ger
mans are at Raska, which is thirty
miles north and a little west of Kos
sovo, where the Serb main army is en
camped. On this field Serbi lost its
liberty to the Turks centuries ago.
The Austrians were at Golija, thiry
five miles northwest, but pushing for
ward moie rapidly than the Germans,
and passing to the southeast of Raska,
were first to encounter the Serb out
posts. Made Rapid Progress.
The Germans and Bulgarians, how
ever, had made unexpected rapid pro
gress at the southern extremity of the
They have entered the Pristina
basin from the northeastward, to
nights' official reports stated. Pristina
is twenty miles south and a trifle east
of the plain.
Thus the Serbs are already at grips
with the Austrians on the north, are
about to be attacked by Bulgar-Ger-man
forces in the south and confront
a solid body of Germans, Austrians
and Bulgars to the eastward.
To the west of them, twenty miles
away, is the Montenegrin border.
The Berlin war office believes them
practically certain to be, not only de
feated, but surrounded and captured
in a body. In any event, officials said,
there is no chance for them better
than flight from the country into
There is Still Time.
London, Nov. 21. "By coming to
the rescue in sufficient force within
four weeks the fillies can yet save
Serbia," declared Serbian Minister
Boskovitch tonight. "She is not lost
forever," he added, "and will not be
lost if the allies help us."
Official advices fully confirming
earlier stories of the massacres the
invaders are perpetrating and the de
vastation wrought in the territory
they have traversed have just reached
