AUSTRIANS ARE REPULSED
Petrograd, July 18. (Via London.)
Russian victory over Teutonic
forces in southern Volhynia has re
sulted in their being driven across
the river Lipa and beyond that
stream, says a war office statement
issued today. Indications are, the
statement adds, that the retreat was
effected in the greatest disorder.
Theofficial statement says:
"In the Riga region there was an
artillery duel. The Germans at many
places attempted unsuccessful to re
capture lost trenches.
"As the result of the latest skillful
operations of General Sarakoff's
troops in Volhynia we gained a vic
tory on July 16, which brought us
13,000 prisoners and thirty guns, as
announced yesterday, and enabled us
to sweep the enemy completely from
the left bank of the lower Lipa, driv
ing him to Krassoff and beyond the
river. Judging by the abundance of
war material the enemy abandoned,
he retreated in great disorder- Some
of the seventeen heavy guns captured
were yesterday already bombarding
enemy positions on the south bank of

ALL STREAMS ARE FALLING
New York July 18. After health
officials liad declared they believed
the epidemic of infantile paralysis to
be under control, the disease made a
pronounced advance today. The daily
bulletin of the health department
shows an increase of nearly 100 per
cent in deaths and of more 'than 30
per cent in new cases. During the
twenty-four hours preceding 10
o'clock this morning the plague killed
twenty-six children and there were
121 new cases reported. During the
same period ending yesterday there
were only fourteen deaths and ninety
five new cases in the five boroughs

Cannot Be Evicted
Pittsburgh, Pa., July 18. Families
of soldiers in service of this state or
the federal government cannot be
Evicted by civil process for non-payment
of rent while the soldiers are m
such service. Since the military units
in Pittsburgs went to the front, hun
dreds of families have been notified
to pay their rent or move out. Mayor
Joseph G. Armstrong and City So
licitor Charles A. O'Brien will enforce
the state law, passed by the 1915 legis
lature, providing against just such a
contingency. Payment of rents can
not be forced until thirty days after
the soldier has been mustered out of
service. The law of April 9, 1915, is
a barrier against landlords' warrants.

NO OFFICIAL REPORTS
EI Paso, Tex., July 18. A party of
mounted Mexicans exchanged fire
with Company L of the Ninth Massa
chusetts infantry near here today. Ac
cording to reports the guardsmen
were doing outpost duty when the
Mexicans rode up on the opposite side
of the Rio Grande and opened fire.
The guardsmen suffered no casualties,
but reported they believed they had
killed one Mexican.
Captain Hickey of Dorchester,
Mass., commanding the company, es
timated the number of Mexicans at
fifteen, but asserted that he was un
able to determine whether or not they
were soldiers. Approximately forty
shots were fired on each side, it was
Deny Report Received.
Both General George Bell, jr., com
manding the El Paso military district,
and Lieutenant Colonel Leon Buck
Ion, acting garrison commander in
Juarez, denied that they had received
official reports of the incident and
both said that it seemed trivial.
The shooting occurred in an iso
lated district about three miles down
the river from El Paso, known locally
as "the island" section. The Massa
chusetts company was doing border
patrol duty in this district, one-third
of the sixty men being on patrol and
the remainder being held 111 reserve
in the camp about half a mile to the
Captain Hickey said that through
out the day small parties of Mexicans
appeared from time to time on the
Mexican bank of the riev.r which is
about 300 yards wide at this point.
Then, he said, a mounted detachment
Creep Through Brush.
The Mexicans rode up to the river
bank, dismounted and deployed as
skirmishers, creeping through the
underbrush which dotted the river's
edge.' One of the Mexicans "fired his
rifle, the bullet crossing the river and,
according to Private; Charles Pscott
of Natick, Mass., ; dropping at his
feet. . "-'' ' ' '
Screening thetnselves as much as
nossible bv little clumps of mesquite,
the Americans returned the fire, and
by the time the reserves reached the
river to reinforce them, they had
driven the Mexicans back to their
horses. Before reaching the picket
line, however, the militiamen asserted,
one of the Mexicans stumbled and
fell into a clump of greasewood and
did not arise.
. The exchange of fire continued less
than ten minutes and when about
fifty shots had been fired on each
side, according to the company offi
cers, the Mexicans, riding south .dis
appeared behind a hillock.

Subsea Liner Is Expected to
Sail on Return Trip Soon
Washington, July 18. The allied
embassies here expect the German
underwater liner Deutschlaud -to
start on its return voyage at any hour,
probably within a day or two. It was
made clear today that the embassies
have made no protests and prbabbly
will make no further move until after
it has sailed.
Agents of the allies have pointed
out to the embassies that the corre
spondence of Captain Franz Von Pa
pen, the withdrawn military attache
of the German embassy mentioned a
Paul Koenig in connection with the
plots to destroy the Welland canal.
No attempt has been made, however,
to identify Captain Koenig of the
Deutschland as the same man.
Eight members of the crew of the
Deutschland were shown through the
White House and President Wilson's
offices today. The sailors took turns

he thought he would sail on his re

f London, July 18. Without hearing,
the attorneys for the crown, the conn
of criminal appeals today dismissed
Sir Roger Casement's appeal from
the verdict of the lower court, which
found him guilty of treason, for which
Viscount Reading, the lord chief jut
tice, sentenced him to death.
For a day and a half Alexander Sul
livan. Sir Roger's counsel, areued be
fore the court, quoting many author
ities in tavor of his contention that
the offense of treason depended upon
whether the accused dwelt under the
protectio.i of the king and that the
crime could not be committed with
out the realm. He abandoned his
other points in regard to the lord
chief justices definition of the of
fense. As soon as Mr. Sullivan had con
cluded his argument, the court re
tired to consider whether the attor
neys for the crown would be called
on to reply. It soon decided to the
contrary, which indicated that the
appeal had gone against Sir Roger,
who was present during u argument
and when judgment was given.
A further appeal to the House of
Lords is possible only if the attorney
general giv.es a certificate that the
decision of the court of criminal ap
peal involves a point of law so ex
ceptionally important that if is de
sirable in the public interest that a
still higher court should deal with it.
Attorney Michael Francis Doyle of
Philadelphia, ot counsel tor air
Roger, expressed an opinion today
that it was improbable the attorney
general would certify the case for
appeal to the House of Lords, as the
appeal court did not consider it
necessary to hear argument for the
government. Powerful influences are
working for a reprieve, said the at
torney, and there were strong hopes
of one being granted.
Acting Sec'y Polk
Washington, July 18. Eliseo Ar
redondo, Mexican ambassador desig
nate, called on Acting Secretary Polk
at the State department today just
before the latter went to the White
House for the cabinet meeting. It
was understood Mr. Arredondo bad
reeeivtd instructions from his govern
ment approving a tentative plan for
the settlement of differences with the
United States by: means of joint in
ternational commission. ( :'
There are indications that Henry P.
Fletcher, ambassador designate to
Mexico, will head the three American
commissioners if the plan is adopted.
Mr. Fletcher was present at today'
At the close of the conference Mr.
Polk said there was nothing to be
announced further than that the con
ferences were . "progressing favor
ably," and he intimated no announce
ment might be expected for several
days. Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Arre
dondo continued in conference after
Mr. Polk had gone to the cabinet.
Mr. Arredondo said his negotiations
with Mr. Polk were proceeding fa
vorably, and that formal announce
ment of the plan to be followed might
be expected before the end of the
Senate Approves '
Big Navy Program
By Viva Voce Vote
Washington, July 18. The senate
today adopted the enlarged building
program of the naval bill by a viva
voce vote. It provides for the con
struction, within three years, of 157
war vessels of all classes and for four
dreadnaughts and four battle cruisers
to be built next year.
By a vote of 48 to 18, the senate re
jected an amendment to require three
of the new battleships to be kept on
the Pacific coast. It was argued that
the amendment would be an infringe
ment on the constitutional authority
of the president as commander in
chief of the -navy.
James H. Moore,
Financier, is Dead
Chicago, III., July 18. James Ho
bart Moore of Santa Barbara, Cal
brother of Judge H. W. Moore, with
wtjom he formed great corporations
known as the Moore group, died at
Lake Geneva, Wis., today. The
"group" was capitalized at $187,000,000
and was later absorbed by the United
States Steel corporation.
The Moorcs were Chicago lawyers,
who, early in the development of
great corporations got control of the
Diamond Match company and pro
posed to control the match industry
of the world. The Diamond Match
corner, which failed, is famous in
Chicago's financial history. It led
to a local panic and the closing of
the stock exchange.
The Moores made a new fortune
shortly afterward in National Bis
cuit. They paid off debts of $4,000,

cago, Rock Island & Pacific, now
in the hands of a receiver. Their
combined wealth has been estimated
