that the destructions and arnasnlnationa
which have taken place, have been sys

with orders from officers and not aa a
result of an accidental lack of discipline.

barf) Change la Weather.
Weather condltiona, which were excep
tionally favorable to military operations
during the first six weeks of the war,
have now changed radically and are In
the main responsible for the lull prevail
ing In all the war areas, with the excep
tion of the combined Montenegrin and
Servian assault on the coveted provinces
of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Accompanying the reports of bad
weather comes the ominous news of the
presence of disease. Hungary has ac.
knowledged an outbreak of cholera among
Its troopa and while It Is denied officially,
the same scourge la said to have at
tacked the Servian troops. General
epidemics of milder diseases may be ex
pected In the western battle area where
the troops on both sides, drenched by
rain, are lying In flooded trenches.
The opeiTtlons In Alsace-Lorraine are
saJd to ha. come to a complete stop on
account of snowstorms. Rain and floods
are reported also from the scene of the
Galiclan operations and probably ac
count for the cessation of the Russian at
tack on the retreating Austrlans. Storm
condltiona wlU Interfere greatly with
motor traports, and troops taking the
offensive may be Breatly handicapped by
inability to bring up their artillery.
Slea-e Umnm Taken.
Several of the great German siege
guns, probably destined for use against
the fortifications of Paris, have fallen
into the hands of the enemy, having been
stuck in the mud when the Germans be
gan their retirement from the Marne.
The French are now digging this artil
lery out, but the same cause which led
to their abandonment may prevent the
allies turning them on their former owners.
WASHINGTON, Sept. K.-At the direc
tion of President Wilson, Secretary
the I Tumulty today wrote a letter to New
Jersey democrats, declining to have them
endorse the president for a second term.
Secretary Tumulty's letter waa to Ed
ward E. Grosscup, state treasurer of
New Jersey. It follows:
"You were generous enough to consult
me ae to whether th democrats of New
Jersey should at this time elndorse the
president for a second term. I had a
talk with the president about It and he
deeply appreciates the generosity of the
suggestion; but New Jersey Is his home
state; the men who would act In this
matter are his own personal friends and
he feels that It might seem an If he were
taking advantage of the extraordinary
situation now existing to gain some per
sonal advantage through such an expres
sion of confidence by them.
"This would be Inconsistent with his
whole thought and spirit and he shrinks
from Its aa from something that would
embarrass him, rather than help him.
"He feels confident that you will know
the spirit in which he says this; that in
urging the democrats of New Jersey not
to do this, he is not abating In the least
his deep appreciation."
It was understood the president decMed
not to allow the New Jersey democrats
to endorse him for a second term be
cause he believed It would look as though
he were seeking rcnomlnatlon. His al
titude, however, was not taken oy friends
here to mean that ho has decided not to
accept a rcnomlnatlon If It Is offered to
him. Democrats In other states have re
cently endorsed him for a second term
and no objection was made at the
As outlined by the presidents friends.
Mr. Wilson's position Is that he is not
considering the question of a second term
at this time and that future events will
determine his stand.
