indicated by the latest Information re-

have boon pushed back from the termi-
nal station at Glubokol to a point mid-
way to the Vllna-Dvinsk railway. The
position thus reached represents a
gain of 25 miles.

The French are bearing tho brunt
of the fighting now In progress on the
western front. They are hammering
at the second German line in Cham-

dropping bombs on the line and sta-
tions to prevent the Germans from
bringing up reinforcements. Absence
of news from the British apparently in-

RUSSIA TAKES STEPS TO END
THE HORSEPLAY IN THE
GERMAN OFFICERS MUST GO
In Twenty-four Hours, or the Russia#
Minister Will Do So, According
To Terms of the Ulti-
Petrograd.—The Russian minister
has been ordered to leave Sofia unless
within twenty-four hours the Bulgar-
ian government openly breaks with
Austria and Germany and sends away
the Austrian and German military of-
ficers now in Bulgaria.
The news agency gives the follow-
ing note which the minister at Sofia
has been ordered to hand to M. Rad-
oslavoff, the Bulgarian premier:
"The events which are taking place
in Bulgaria at this moment give evi-
dence of a definite decision of King
Ferdinand's government to place the
fate of its country in the hands of Ger-
"The presence of German and Aus-
tiian officers at the ministry of war
and on the staff of the army, the con-
centration of troops in the zone bor-
dering Serbia, and the extensive finan-
cial support accepted from our enemies
by the Sofia cabinet no longer leave
any doubt as to the object of the mili-
tary preparedness of Bulgaria.
"The powers of the entente who have
at heart the realization of the aspira-
tions of the Bulgarian people, have on
many occasions warned M. Radosiavoff
than any hostile act against Serbia
would be considered as directed against
themselves. The assurances given by
the head of the Bulgarian cabinet in
reply to these warnings are contradict-
ed by the facts.
"The representative of Russia which
is bound to Bulgaria by the imperish-
able memory of her liberation from the
Turkish yoke, can not sanction by his
presence preparations for fratricidal
aggression against a slav and allied
people. The Russian minister, there-
fore has received orders to leave Bul-
garia with all the staff of the legation
and consulates if the Bulgarian govern-
ment does not within twenty-four hours
openly break with the enemies of the
Slav cause and of Russia and does not
at once proceed to send away officers
belonging to armies of states which are
at war with the powers of the entente."
From the news received during the
past few days from the Balkans it Is
considered certain that King Ferdin-
and and Premier Radosiavoff have
made their choice and are only await-
ing the completion of mobilization to
strike at Serbia and assist the Austro-
Germana to open the road to Constan-
tinople, which has been anxiously wait-
ing for many weeks for promised aid
from the central powers.
Greece, It is believed, will live up to
her treaty with Serbia and come to her
assistance if she is attacked by her
neighbor, but the attitude of Roumania,
which remains only a partly mobolized
spectator, is a matter of uncertainty.
PORTER CHARLTON'S TRIAL BEGINS
American Must Answer For Uxorcide
at Como, Italy.
Rome—The tragedy of a gentle and
unsophisticated youth wedded to a
brilliant, witty and world-seasoned
woman twenty years his senior will
be unfolded In all its heart-breaking
details this week at Como where the
trial of the American, Porter Charlton,
began on Tuesday. It is more than five
years ago, in the summer of 1910, that

beautiful Lake Como, drew to the sur-
face a trunk containing the battered
body of Mrs. Mary Scott Castle Porter,
who had been leading a gay life with
her immature husband in a villa on the

tradition three years and has been In
jail at Como nearly as long.
