WASHINGTON. Sept. 4.-A Rustam
Bey, the Turkish ambassador, has in
formed President Wilson that he does
not alter the views ha recently expressed
In a published interview and ' will leave

The ambassador refused to discuss his
action further than to say ho had asked
his government ' for leave of absence,
which ho waa certain would be granted,
and would leave for Constantinople within
ten days. ,
Tha announcement of the withdrawal
of the Turkish ambassador, though not

was interpreted as an Indication of Pres

omment by foreign diplomats considered
dangerous to the neutrality .of this coun
try. It was understood the administra
tion would let It be known that the presi
dent would decline to receive diplomats
who make comments whioh bo considers
obnoxious. Although Count von Bern

the baron's interview, the State depart

further north than their n&ln
battle line.
The turning movement of the

tance from strong German rein
forcements. ,

that there has been heavy fighting
on the river Meuse at the eastern
end of the battle line, 'where the

LONDON, Sept. 2. (10:4 a. ra.
Virtually no new Information has
reached London this morning con
cerning the progress of events In the
western war arta. but from tha eaat
comes news which here is taken to
show that Russia has almost com
pleted the first stage ot what may
be considered the most colossal op
eration, ever 'undertaken br a mill-'
tary power.
The fall of the Austrian fortress
of Jaroslau virtually completes the
Investment of Przemysl, so far as
lines of communication are concerned.-
Even the continued occupa
of Cracow by Austrian and Ger-
Junction of Austrian- and German '
armies, which la necessary to keep
Rnssla from ovarruiyilng. Galicia and
pushing the armies of Austria back
to the ridge of the .'Carpathians. By
its conquests in Oalicla, Russia now
controla the greatest supply of gaso

the utmost impertance to Russia, be
cause of its necessity for motor

The Russian movement 1 now ' da
scribed as a huge wedge, the right Una
of which extends, roughly, , from tdbau
oa the Baltic, along the railroad line to
Warsaw. The Rusilan generafe Rennen
kamptf. Is guarding this line. It protects
the Russian sources of supply and pre
vents any outflanking movement against,
the Russian army of attack, which, al
ready, according to news in London, ta
beginning to operate In tha direction of
Posen and Breslau, in Germany. The left .
of this line rests on Warsaw, from which
point railroads tap the rich and populous
district extending to Odessa. The ocxii na
tion of Uallcla links up the Warsaw rail
road system and la regarded In London
as Insuring both -supplies and reinforce
ments for the attacking anny.
That the stage is virtually apt for this
attack is Indicated by the news that tle
Germans are hastily reinforcing their line
between Thorn and Kalis, this latter point
being southeast of 'Posen, even to the ex
tent of abandoning their positions against
General Rennenkampff.
