Czar's Troops Carry Out Successful
Raids Near Smorgon—British
Extend Lines in France.
Washington, Jan. 19.—Advices from
tiie war fronts received here today
indicate that tlie advance of the Teu-
tonic Allies in Rumania apparently lias
been brought to a standstill, for the
time being at least, by the reinforced
Russians and Rumanians. In the
latest Berlin official communication
the only successes reported for the in-
vaders were gained through a surprise
attack between the Suchitza and
Putna valleys, where the army of
Archduke Joseph captured an officer,
23u men and one machine gun from a
hostile position, and south of the
Oituz road, where a strong Russian
attack was repulsed with artillery and
machine gun fire.
On the other hand the Rumanians
put down an attack south of Monestar-
Fachinul, 011 the Kasino river, and
southwest of Pralea surrounded a Ger-
man position and captured a large
number of men and four machine
guns. The Russians are shelling the
towns of Tultcha and Isakcha, across
the Danube in Dobrudja, while the
Bulgarian guns are active against hos-
tile shipping and military positions
near Galatz and Isakcha.
On the Russian front and in Galicia
there has been violent artillery activ-
ity and minor fights between raiding
parties at isolated points. Near Smor-
gon the Russians have carried out
successful raids and sapping opera-
tions, according to Petrograd. In the
region of Krashina, a Russian force
entered a German position, but later
was driven out.
The British in France have further
extended their gains of Wednesday
near Beaucour t-Sur-Ancre. The
French and Germans in the Vosges
mountains, in Lorraine and near Sois-
sons, are engaged in artillery duels,
which are described by the French
war office as being of a "rather seri
ous character." The big guns of ihe
belligerents also have been active

End Comes to Admiral Dewey at His
Home in Washington After a
Washington, Jan. 17.—Admiral Dew-
ey, the Nation's Spanish War hero and
by priority of grade the ranking naval
officer of the world, died at his home
here late this afternoon in his eigh-
tieth year. He had not been conscious
since yesterday, when he lapsed into
coma, still believing that in a few
days he would be back at his desk in
the Navy Department.
A general breakdown accompanied
by arterio-sclerosis was the cause of
death. The disease had been gradual-
ly spreading its hold upon the power-
ful body for a year and a half, but the
admiral, proud of his physical vigor,
had fought it off and even kept its
existence a secret from most of his
intimate friends. Last Wednesday he
was at his office apparently hale and

I CONDENSED NEWS iTEMS
j Okmulgee, Okla., Jan. 20—Exterml-
j nation of one of the most daring bands
i of outlaws was completed near hero
I today with the killing by a posse of
| Oscar Poe, Will Hart and Harry Hart.
I Since the first of the year four out-
! laws have bene killed by possemen,
! while three members of various possss
were killed by the bandits. One out
law and three possemen have been
wounded. More than $rj,U00 of the loot
obtained by the bandits in raids on Ok-
lahoma banks has been recovered
since the drive to exterminate them
Oscar Poe, the Hart brothers and
KusBel Tucker made up the four ban-
dits killed by possemen, while M. L.
Boulware, a deputy sheriff of Castle;
Charles Bullock, city marshal of Dela-
ware, and John Garretson, a merchant
of Delaware, were killed by the out-
Those wounded are Joseph Layton,
deputy sheriff of Oklahoma county,
shot in leg in a battle near Harrah,
Wednesday; Melville Roman, chief of
police of Okmulgee, wounded in the
hand in today's skirmish near here;
Edward Garretson, brother of John,
wounded several times in a clash near
Nowata several weeks ago, and Joe
Littrell, bandit, shot through chest and
arm in a battle with a posse near Bo-
Pone Po°, an uncle of Oscar Poe, is
in jail In iMuwata county, charged with
being a member of the gang that for
months had terrorized banking insti-
tutions in Oklahoma. Between Janu-
ary 0 and ending yesterday afternoon,
at least six battles were fought be-
tween the outlaws and possemen.
Harry and Will Hart were twins.
The battle between the posse and
the robbers today occurred near the
Deep Fork river bottoms, where the
men were camping. When local offi-
cers were informed of the presence of
the men at the camp a posse of citi-
zens and officers was organized and
they left in automobiles. Upon ar-
riving at the camp the possemen found
a crude brush shelter, but the men
were not found. The possemen then
formed a semi-circle around the camp
and waited the return of the men.
About 10 o'clock they were seen ap-
proaching from a farm house nearby.
When near the camp the possemen or-
dered them to surrender, when the
fight ensued with foregoing results.
