BERLIN, June 28. (Via

PETROGRAD, June 2 8. (Via
London.) Officers of the Russian
general staff now state that they
have satisfactorily achieved the re
grouping of their forces necessitated
by the German Gallclan campaign
and that they stand ready effectively
to oppose a further advance of the
AuBtro-German forces In Gallcla or
In southern Russia.
The Gnlla LIdb, river, to which the
Russian forcea have retired, flows
south from above Rohatyn and pro
vides admirable facilities for defense.
Fifteen miles further eastward the

LI pa, the Russians believe, would
offer even a stronger obstacle to the
enemy, since it is supported with a
good railroad line.
The moat Important point of the pres
ent front Is that portion of the Vistula,
Just north of the river San. . Here the
Germans are attempting to force the
river and flank the Russian positions
along the Tanew, which have success
fully resisted frontal attacks.
The wooded approach to the river here
allows the Germans to conceal their bat
terles. but up to Saturday no real advan
tage had been gained by the Germans.
The importance of this move is well
recognized by the Russians, since, If suc
cessful, it would unite the German forces
on both sides of the Vistula with those
operating on the Tanew front.
German activity appears to bo limited
at present to the Dniester and Vistula
rivers. In the region of Lemberg no
serious fighting has been reported.

WASHINGTON, June 28.-A total of
14,000,000 In tolls wss collected for the up
of the Panama canal during the period
from the opening of the water way up
to June 8, last
During April the tolls for the first time
were greater than the cost of operation
snd maintenance of the canal by SS4.112,
the total for the month being S8M12. the
total for the month being S442.41S and the
coet ef operation $361, . the latter being
the least for any montli since the open
ing of the canal. The reduction in operat

F. HummeU, chairman of the committee
on arrangements for the meeting which
was to have been held tonUeht and at
which It was originally arranged that
Mr. Bryan, pausing here on his trip to

Mr. HummeU. "We wanted him to talk
on the exportation of ammunition and
ho offered to repeat his New York ad
dress on 'Peace.' That talk would do us
no good. Stop the exportation of muni

a change of topic, and we shall know
more about that when he arrives here

For Instance, take the quotations re

Jews of Gallcla, the Austrian priests of
Cremona and the Belgian prelate, all
of which, according to M. Lataple, was
covered tn the allocution of January 22.
"With regard to the Jews It was In

not mentioned, as the Vatican could not
condemn Russia on the sole affirmation
"The pope was Informed that Italy had
taken some parish priests of the towns

Cremona informed him that they were

pontiff furnishes them with fund for

fectly. How then could he put them in

strugRlo between Teutonlsin and
Slavism for racial ascendancy n sar
in what Is thought hero to be Its

armies for the most part still out

The penetration of the Germanic
armies eastward from Lemberg has
had the Inevitable result of forcing
the Russians from the thirty-mile
front, between Bobrka and Zurawna.
The Muscovites are now falling hack to
the Onlla Llpa river. Military writers
her anticipate that this wll necessitate
a total withdrawal from tho Dniester and
thru the Russians will make their next
real stand on' the river Bug.
These writers also hoM that though

The advices came from Ambassa-

of a definite nature received since
the American note reached the Oer-1

ture of the ambassador's
was not divulged snd U did not be

Indication of the trend of the forth

Ambassndos rrsrard based his observa

visit of Dr. Anton Meyer-Gerhard,
emissary of Count von Hemstorff, the
German ambassador here, had produced
on officials of the German government.
Dr. Oerhsrd was understood by Am

Germany seems to be wllllhg to safe
guard the rights of Americans on ships
primarily engaged in passenger trafflo
an adherence to the principles expressed
In the Amerinan not that non-combatants
should be Immune from attack
would seem In the opinion of officials
here to be reconixed.
No Information had been received . on
what the attitude of Germany would be
toward assuming liability for the loss
of American lives on the Lusltanta,. but
the feeling prevails that If a Satisfactory
arrangement can be made as to the
future conduct of submarines towards
vessels carrying Americans, Germany
would suggest a basis for a favorable
adjustment of the Lualtanla rase as well.
