LONDON, Aug. ; 7. (Special CkbleKram
to the New Tork World and Omaha Pee.)
Military oierat ons or preparations
through Europe ore being carr'cd on be.
hind an Impenetrable vrll of cprusoriililp.
There has beevno teletraphlc communi
cation between England and Geimany for
the last week. Only new from Berlin
waa received until then. It came via
Washington or waa brought by refugees.
The cutting of the German-American
cable, destroyed the former source of In
formation, Dispatches have been brought to the
Dutch or Danish frontiers and illed there,
but the censors will allow nothing of
vital lnterent to go through. Telegrams
from France to Britain are liable to In
definite delay. They must be written In
French and are seves; y censored even
when in plain language. Telegrams the
meaning of which are not quite clear
to the censor are being stoppcJ.
There Is occasional communication with
Italy from here under the same condi
tions, but telegrams take from twelve
to forty-eight hours to get through.
With regard to Switzerland, the same
conditions prevail as with Italy, the cen
sorship In both cues being doubled, be
cause dispatches have to run the gaunt
let of the French censor In addition to
the censor of the country of origin.
Cables to RugHla are still open, but ft.
Petersburg, which was slow In putting
the censorship In motion, now hss estab
lished It, and It Is almost impcrslble to
Ket through press dispatches, except
those filed by Rupsla'a official agency.
The London papers all have reduced In
size. The Daily Mail, instead of running
from twelve to sixteen pagej dally, la
printing six pages. The Times has re
duced to twelve of its small six-column
The Telegraph, which recently waa
printing up to twenty-two pages, now
also is twelve pages. Advertising has al
most disappeared from their pages. The
luality of print paper used seems also
to have changed. The evening papers
contain practically nothing but war news
and rumors and their war specials are
Kent out on single six-column sheets.
Owing .to the difficulty, . if not com
plete Impossibility of getting war photo
graphs, the Illustrated pap.-rs will be
severely hit, for the circulation of the
daily papers will be increased Itjond all
French Say Posters
- Prove that Kaiser
PARIS,' Aug. 8. An official statement,
Issued today, say that German mobiliza
tion posters placed on all towns of Vio
and Moyonvlc, in Alsace-Lorraine, prove
the French contention that the war was
premeditated on the part of Germany.
The towns were occupied by the French
yesterday and, according to the statement,
the posters which tiny found afforded
them valuable information concerning
Germany's mobilization, besides reveal
ing that Germany had decided upon war
at the time the triple entente was redoub
ling Its efforts for peace.
BERLIN, Aug. 8. (Via Amsterdam and
Ltndon.)-Tlie German newspapers com
plain about the diplomatic mcaneuvers
curried out to make Geimany appear the
illMturber of the peace. They maintain
that it was Hunt's that pushed Germany
It is reported here that the Germans In
France who were unable to leave within
the time limit are being sent to western
Franco and comiielled to help with the
harvest. They add that German women
in Russia are being expelled, while the
men have been thrown Into prison.
Matthias Krsberger, leader of the cler
ical party In the Imperial Parliament and
chairman of the arms committee, states
that the German army and navy are both
splendidly equipped, while the German
riflea and cannon are superior to those
of the adversaries. He declares Ger

About Food Supply
LONDON. Aug. 7.-J. D. Broadbank,
representative of the. Board of Trade In
port affairs. In optimistic regarding the
food supply, nl an interview he said:
"All British ports and especially Lon
don, are bound to huve a large acces
sion of business, since most of the con
tinental porta are no longer open. Ships
which ordinarily carry cargoes partly for
Iondon and partly for Antwerp and
Hamburg are already discharging their
cargoes here. There are eight ships
waiting at Gravesend which were des
tined originally for continental ports, but
now are ordered to discharge here.
"There Is now at sea a large tonnage of
shipping laden with foodstuffs consigned
to Hamburg and Bremen. These car
goes will be diverted to London or other
British ports. All this indicates a con
tinuance of sufficient supplies so long
as the war lasts and our navy commands
PARIS, Aug. 7 (S:M p. m.)-The gov
ernment in at'polnting a commission to
Consider the food supply, sanitation, or
ganisation of employment bureaus and
other kindred subjects that may arise, is
arranging for the country to have the
service of a number of the most dis
tinguished public men In France who
cannot be taken into the cabinet. Among
them are Alexandre Rlbot, Leon Bour
geois, Theophile Del Casse. Allexandre
Millerand and Camllle Pelletan.
RESERVIST UNDER BOND

NEW TORK. Aujr. 8-Clty Magistrate
C. M. Harris, sitting In the Domestic Re
lations court, today established a prece
dent In the case of wive and families of
foreign reservists called to the front.
Joseph Geler was placed under a bend of
124 to support his wife and two children
In, the event that he Is compelled to leave
this country. Mrs. Geler made the appli
cation. Otter Is an Austrian.
Thfe oxen were roasted In a hugi)
covered sheet Iron roaster over a wood
fire. Neither flies nor dtirt could reach
the beef. And It was excellent. Hundreds
of band of buttermilk were served, and it
was cool Just off the foe. Barrels ft
pickles wera consumed on the sandwiches.
Platform I'sder' Trees.
Around the gerat Cottonwood tree In the
park said to have been planted by
Brlgam Young a half century ago, a
speakers' platform had been built. E. F.
Morearty presided. In a brief address
he reciewed the grand history of the re- I
publican party. He recounted the achieve
ments of the nation under republican ad
ministrations, and prophlsled a long and
glorious! future for the party. He
responded to the address of welcome de
livered by Mayor F. H. Tucker of Flor
ence, who threw open the gates of Flor
ence to the Jolly crowd.
A. W. .Itfff.ris. the principal speaker
of the day. was by the way, about the
only speaker who was not a candidate for
ofilce. lie noted the wonderful achieve
ments of the republican party in the past,
reviewed its brilliant record of matchless
administrations, and pointed out its great
field for nrood In the future. .
J. H. Kemp, candidate for the nomi
nation for governor, was the first of the
candidate speakers. Ha promised an
economical administration if elected gov
ernor, prophesied a republican victory In
the state from top to bottom, and de
clared there hud been enough of a demo
cratic administration In the state for the
Two Candidates Not The.
Here the chairman called for Rosa L.
Hammond and R. Beecher Howell, but
neither was present. Ross Hammond was
not even accounted for, although It was
reported that he was campaigning In the
southeastern part of the state and could
tiot be present. Mayor Tucker was
responsible for the story that Howell was
In Florence, but did not apepar In th
crowd during the speaking.' Mayor
Tucker said Howell waa over at the water
works plant a half dozen blocks away for
several hours In the afternoon.
James Stephen"mpld he stood for any
thing that would restrict the traffic In
liquor. I expect to stay by the water
wagon." he said, 'though I may never
come up with the band wagon."
Yelner Bpraks Cruel Words.
Then came John O, Yeiser. Yeiser
could not overlook the opportunity, of
roasting his cautious opponents. He ad
mitted that they' had spoken so gently
and pleasantly that he felt like a lion In
a den of Daniels. He took a gentle
fling at each and every candidate for
governor, and reserved his heaviest fire
for R. Beecher Howell, boss of the water
board. He said Howell bragged of re
ducing the water rates under municipal
ownership, but that Mowell had to make
the property owners psy for his pipes in
order to reduce the cost of water. "Fur
thermore," he said, "he fixed a mini
mum charge of 60 cents a month for the
water when I may only want to use SO
He charged that Howell had been re
sponsible for the city's buying the water
plant at about M.W.flOO more than It was
worth. Then he admitted that he was
something of a municipal ownersh'p man
himself, "but," he continued, "I don't
want mtinlclpi.1 ownership so bad that I
would help out a set of rascals to get
H.ilO.OnO more from the city than their
plant was worth." All this time Howell
was supposedly s'ttlng In the cool re
cesses of the water plant a half dozen
blocka away, while the chairman was
rslllnr for him to srx-sk.
A I Sorenson. W. B. Howard and T. W.
Blackburn, all candidates for congress
from the Pecond district. sioke follow
ing the candidates for governor. "Off
again, on again, gone again, Blackburn,"
told what be would do In congress, but
didn't tell why he changed hi mind so
many times in the last week about run
Other candidates were called upon I
promiscuously as long as they lasted on 1
the platform. Among them were can
didates for attorney general, for the state
senate, and Dr. A. . Thomas and R. I.
Klliott, both candidates for the office oC
statu superintendent of public Instruction.
The Crowd Rats.
The crowd gradually shifted to the bar',
becue, and began to munch .beef sand
wiches, until by the time the speaking
was over, nearly everyone had a sand
wich In one hand and a cup of buter
milk In the other.
A fife and drum corps marched through
I the park and about the streets playing
i patriotic music. A band began to Play
j dance music and the dancing began In the
.iiiuuio ui itiv uucmoon. J nig dan
cing platform waa erected, and dancing
continued Into the night.
