London, Nov. 15.—Chief interest in
military operations continues to cen-
ter upon the Balkans. Field Marshal
Von .VlcKenzies' forces, fighting their
way step by step from the north, are
gradually eating into the territory
over which lies the Serbian retreat.
The Serbians, fighting as they are now

In southern Serbia increasing resist-
ance by the Serbian forces opposing
the Bulgarians and the increasing ac-
tivity of the Franco-British forces
give hope to military observers in the
allied capitals that the enveloping op-
erations by which the Serbians seem-
ed likely to be cut off from retreat
may not, after all, succeed. Allied
operations around the Vardar river art^
reported to be bringing results helpful
to the Serbians, particularly in the
neighborhood of Vels.
Teutonic submarine activity contin-
ues in the Mediterranean. Announce-
ments received of the loss of mer-
chant vessels seldom reveal where the
sinking took place, but several steam-
ers reported today as having gone
down apparently met their fate in
Mediterranean waters. Of these Brit-
ish steamers Den of Crombie, of 6,500
tons, was the largest. Loss of life,
however, apparently was involved in
the sinking of the Italian steamer Fi-
renze, off the Egyptian coast, six pas-
sengers and fifteen of the crew being
reported missing. So far as learned.
110 Americans were aboard the Firenze.
From the German side there is laclt
of reports of operations on the east-
The latest Fetrograd statement,
however, indicated that the Teutons
were losing ground in the neighbor-
hood of Kiga and apparently had lit-
tle chance, at least of immediate suc-
cess, either to Riga or Dvinsk.
Italian attacks on Gorizia are con-
tinuing and, according to Rome, ara

THE ANCONfl CA5E WILL BE PROBED
Rome, via Paris, Nov. 15— lengthy
conference between Foreign Minister
Sonino and Thomas Nelson Page,
American ambassador, is believed to
have brought about a full exchange of
views concerning the Ancona. The na-
ture of the conversation has not been
revealed, but there is reason to be-
lieve that the Italian viewpoint was
fully presented, reflecting a strong
feeling that the sinking of the liner
was such a flagrant breach of inter-
national law that governments should
adopt a course to secure complete rep-
Ambassador Page was advised of
the sinking of the Firenze today even
before the official announcement was
made public. This adiditonal incident,
following closely that of the Ancona,
has increased official and public indig-
nation to an intense degree.
Washington, Nov. 15.—All efforts of
the United States government to learn
the circumstances under which the
Italian liner Ancona was sunk with a
loss, it is believed, of several Ameri-
can lives thus far have been without
Although it at first was believed that
the Italian censorship was responsible
for the delays, officials now are com-
ing to believe that the inaccessibility
of those who were rescued and the
conflicting and incoherent statements
made by them has caused Italian au-
thorities to make a thorough investi-
gation before furnishing Ambassador
Page with a report.
Rome, Nov. 13—Giovanna Martini of
Reggio, Calabria, a survivor of the
Ancona, in describing the scenes at
the sinking of the liner, said that the
first note of warning to the passen-
gers in the steerage, who were danc-
ing and listening to music at the
time, was a sound that was taken to
be a clap of thunder. The ship slow-
ed down, but the music continued until
a ripping sound was heard followed
by a woman's scream. Everybody
then seemed to understand what was
happening and pandemonium was let

LAKE STEAMER IS LOST.
Think Freighter and All Hands Have
Perished In Recent Severe Storm.
Duluth, Minn., Nov. 5.—The steamer
Charles A. Luck, until recently known
as the City of Berlin, has been lost
with all hands, according to a report
that reached here today. The report
has not been verlfiod, but G. A. Tom-
linson. who had the steamer under
charter to carry grain from Duluth
to Buffalo, said he fearod that th*

Ask $150,000 For Rate Case Trial.
An additional appropriation of at
least $150,000 for use in defense of
the pending 2-cent railroad passenger
fare cases will be asked by the corpo-
ration commission if the legislature is
held in January. There seems to be
no question but that the session will
be held, and already the commission is
preparing information to be presented
to the legislature, showing the need
of more money.
The last legislature made an appro-
priate nof $75,000 to be spent by the
corporation commission and the at-
torney general in defending the con-
stitutional 2-cent rate. This fund has
almost been exhausted, and the trial
of the case, it is said by members of
the commission, it is not half finished.
It is absolutely necessary for the com-
mission to have more money to con-
tinue the work it has already started,
Chairman Jack Love says.
It is estimated by Chairman Love
that the railroads are spending more
than $1,000,000 in their ffght to rein-
state the 3-cent rate, while the state
so far has appropriated only $75,000.
Union Station Again Agitated.
At la: t the questions of the building
nf a union passenger station and the
Mminntlon of grade crossings, which
has been agitated in Oklahoma City
ir the last two years aro to be de-
ideii. An order was issued by the
orporation commission directing the
dicers of each of the four railroads
ntering Oklahoma City to appear be-
the commission on November 20
and show cause why a union station
hould or should not be built. The
union station proposition necessarily
involves tht G'ade crossing question.
Fire Bugs Blamed In Marshal's Report
Fire loss in Oklahoma in October
was $33,270.45 less than for tlie pre-
ceding month, according to the month-
ly report of State Fire Marshall C. C.
Hammonds. The figures for Septem-
ber were unusually large on account
of the. great loss resulting from the
gasoline tank explosion at Ardmore.
The total for October was $191,040.86,
of which $74,775.30 was on buildings
and $116,263.30 on contents.
One hundred and thirty-five fires
were reported during the month, the
causes being shown as follows: Un-
known, forty-two; supposed incendar-
ism, five; adjoining fires, twenty; oil,
gas and gasoline explosions, sixteen;
defective flues, twenty-seven; defect-
ive stoves, three; lightning, four;
matches in children's hands, five;
careless burning of trash, two; de-
fective wiring, six; spontaneous com-
With Hie approach of the winter
season, Mr. Hammonds calls atten-
tion to the dangers of the open grate
and the open fireplace. All open fire-
place^, he urges, should be screened
for the protection of women and chil-
dren, whose clothing is easily ignited.
Several deaths from burning occur in
the state every year, he says, as a
result of carelesnesss.
Pipeline for Newkirk Field.
One of the largest and most impor-
tant oil and gas pipeline companies in
the state is soon to make connection
with the Newkirk gas field, said to be
the largest in the state, according to
announcement by the corporation com-
mission. The name of the company
was not given. Approximately $1,500,-
000 has been provided for the construc-
tion of the line. Laying of the pipe,
it is understood, will begin soon. All
the necessary preliminary details of
the work have been completed.
Insurance Law Upheld.
Validity of an act of the Fifth legis-
lature providing for the creation of a
6'ate insurance board for the regulation
I of insurance business of all kinds in
| Oklahoma was upheld by the supreme
j court. The constitutionality of the
law was attacked by the Insurance
Company of North America and other
j insurance companies in proceedings in-
! stituted in the district court of Okla-
homa county. They sought an injunc-
tion restraining the board from per-
forming the duties conferred upon it by
Commission Seeks to Supervise Rates.
Rates now charged by freight and
passenger carriers may not be ad-
vanced in the future unless such ad-
vances are approved by the co*^ora-
tion commission, according to an orde,
issued by the commission and directed
to all railroads operating in the str*w.
Heretofore railroads have vigorously
protested all attempts of the commis-
sion to c: Iroi passenger rates and it
is expected that the carriers will ap-
peal from the order to the supreme

DETECTOR SYSTEMS CONSID
ERED BY THE SCIENTISTS.
Thought to Be Most Effective Method
of Combating This Most Deadly of
All Modern Naval Weapons
The prime advantage of the subma-
rine—its ability to escape detection
through sight—has been overcome by
the Invention foe use by the entente
allies of a means of detecting its pres-
ence through heiA-ing. The exact na-
ture of some of the most essential fea-
tures of this invention has, of course,
been kept secret, but a general de-
scription of its manner of working is
given in the Scientific American. One
of those who contributed to the de-
velopment of this detector system is
William Dubilier, an American elec-
trical engineer with numerous wire-
less telephone and wireless telegraph
inventions to Ills credit. He had gone
to France on the mission of installing
wireless telegraph apparatus on air
craft, when he was called upon to aid
in solving the submarine detector
problem. Dubilier went to Cherbourg,
an important French port on the Eng-
lish channel, where he found Profes-
sor Tissot of the French Academy of
Science, hard at work on the detector
For some time before this, devices
had been contrived by which it was
possible to detect the sound waves
made by submarines, but these de-
vices also conveyed the noises made
by the propellers of all kinds of craft,
and they were of little value, because
it was practically impossible to dis-
tinguish the sounds made by a sub-
marine from those coming from other
vessels. Fortunately for the inven-
tors, however, it was discovered, in
the course of the tests, that the un-
derwater craft were the sources of
sound waves of exceedingly high fre-
quency, quite distinct from any other
subaqueous sounds. While the causo
of the high-pitched Bound is known to
the inventors, it cannot be divulgod
since it would, then, be possible for
submarine constructors to eliminate
the source of the telltale sound waves.
It still remained to the inventors to
eliminate all other sound waves from
affecting the detector and also to de-
vise means by which the distance of
the submarine and the direction of its
ravel could be determined. It re- I
quired several months of careful ex- |
perimenting to develop suitable res-
onance tubes for filtering out unde-
sirable sounds. At first the device
finally developed, worked at a distance I
of a few miles and then its range was
increased to 55 miles, by use of the
Audlon amplifier, an American inven- |
tion. This system is used all along j
the coasts of the British isles and
France. It is not available for use on
vessels because of its extreme sensi-
tivity. An illustration shows tho form
of the device as it lies in the water—
a cable reaching out from shore and
ending in the sea in eight branches,
each with a rounded object at the end,
somewhat resembling a telephone re-
ceiver—a microphone. Each micro-
phone is placed in such a manner as
to receive sound waves best in one
direction. Accordingly, by listening j
to the sounds received by the different j
microphones, and slowly moving a j
switch over the several contacts, the |
operator can determine in what direc- t
tion the submarine is moving. How
the distance of the submarine is de- j
tected is kept more strictly secret.
Means of communication are main- j
tained between these detectors on
shore and numerous vessels which are
sent out to attack the submarines.
Since the appearance of the Scien-
tific American article, the New York
Times relates that Dr. Lee de Forest
of New York, inventor of the Audion
amplifier, has received a hurry-up call
from the British government and has
sailed for London. The use of his
amplifier in the submarine detection
device attracted the attention of the
British to him, and his services are
desired for contrivance of a system by
which the approach of Zeppelins can
be detected at a great distance. The
Times says that the form of Audion
used by the British in detecting sub-
marines is not so highly developed as
the most recent of the De Forest in-
ventions. Doctor de Forest proposes
to work out a system similar to that
used for detecting submarines by
which not only their sounds will be re-
corded, but their distance and the di-
rection in which they are traveling
will be known.

Elmer was playing with two of his

that he hoped the horseshoe would
bring him good luck. .
