PROTEST SENT BY
SPAIN TO BERLIN
Attitude More Radical Than
' That of America
INDIGNATION IS GROWING
Entire Nation Aroused by De
struction of Ships.
MADRID. Dec. J9 -The note ad
dressed to .Germany on the submarine
question hy the Spanish government re-
views at length the policy of Madrid
from the time of the firt Spanish ship
the Isidore was torpedoed in August
191 S. It dec lares that the Spanish gov-
ernment has always maintained that it
was illegal to destroy priies as is the
constant practice of submarines and
that the cabinet also demanded the ob-
servation of the declaration of I-ondon.
notably article SO which it maintained

! Radical Attitude. .
The Berlin government has been sur-
prised at the radical attitude of Spain
whose protests it is held have been
more energetic than those of any other
neutral Mate even the United States of
America. With regard to the contra-
band question the note says:
"W hat the Spanish government does
not admit is the central empires' inter-
pretation of international law where
they destroy ships of nations who have
already complained and protested
against such an interpretation."
.The Spanish government sent a note
to Berlin protestinu vigorously against
the torpedoing of Spanish steamers by
(iernian submarines. Prior to that
time dispatches from Spain stated that
indignation over the operations of the
submarines was growing throughout
the country and that mercantile and
shipping bodies were bringing strong
pressure for action.
Offer of Germany.
In October a Berlin dispatch said
that the German government had of-
fered to let Spanish fruit ships sail un-
molested under certain guarantees and
provided that the allies permitted simi-
lar cargoes to pass for the German mar-
ket. ' The agitation in Spain continued
to grow and. on December 12 Alexan-
dro l.erroux leader of the Spanish radi-
cal party introduced a resolution In
the chamber prohibiting Spanish ships
and firms from provisioning German
submarines. This was followed on De-
cember 22 by the introduction of a
resolution by the republican party de-
claring (hat there was urgent need of
putting a stop to the torpedoing of
Spanish ships which was "continuing to
weaken a merchant marine already in-
sufficient and threatening to ruin the
agricultural interests of Spain.
Action of Spain
WASHINGTON Dec. 20.-Spains
action toward the (ierman submarine
campaign caused surprise here because
no such vigorous statement from Spain
had been expected.
Spain's action nevertheless is thought
to have come at an opportune time to
aifd another source of pressure on Ger-
LAW ADV0CATE0 BY
WOMEN OF ILLINOIS
CHICAGO. Dec -Passage of
laws which would eliminate
all illegitimacy were urged
before the Illinois woman's congress
in session here today. Remedial
measures suggested by speakers were
the "automatic marriage bill" which
provides that the birth of a fh'U(
shall automatically marry the per-
'n and the passage of a law which
would give a child born out of wed-
lock its father's name and provision
f'r its support but would not en-
force marriage between the parents.
Need of a constitutional conven-
tion to revise the state law and re-
quire a health certificate as a pre-
requisite to marriage and abolition
of the double standard of morals
aUo were discussed
many in what the slate department con-
siders a most serious situation
Norway Sweden Denmark and Hol-
land also have suffered disastrously
from suhmarme activities but no indi-
cation has been given as yet that they
also were planning action at this time.
The 1'mtcd Stales will welcome such
protests by other neutrals but in line
with its consistent policy will probably
not join in any united action with them.
BY TEUTON ARMY
Germans Seek to' Break Way
Through Mountain Passes.
Associated Press War Summary.
The-opening of what may prove to
be an important offensive hy the Teu-
tonic forces along the Moldavian west-
ern frontier is revealed in the current
fterlin. statement. Apparently it is the
AusB)j-German . purpose to breal:
through the mountain region and force
the Kusso-Rumanian lines back alonj;
the Jpwrer Carpathian barrier intj
Several Heights Captured.
Several heights were captured in the
effort which evidently is made in con-
junction with the northward thrust of
the Teutonic armies from W'allachia i
to the east of this line the southern !
flank of which is thus threatened.
From W'allachia northward Field
Marshal von Mackensen's advance has
been pressed on the west nearly fif-
teen miles north of Rimnik Sarat and
new progress also has been made near
the Danulie where Braila and the oil
renter is the next important center in
the line of the Teutonic progress.
Rumaaiaos in Field.
The Tetrograd statement reveals that
Rumanian troops are again in the field
in northeastern W'allachia and the in-
dications are that resistance of a most
stubborn sort is being offered to von
Mackensen's thrust toward the Sereth
line which runs northwest through cen-
tral Moldavia from a point on the Dan-
ube just north of Braila. The tier-
mans however have taken 14(10 more
prisoners from the Rusy'ans 'togethet
with three cannon. '
In Dohrudia opposite Braila and
Gatata the Bulgarian Turkish and
(ierman forces have closed in further
upon the Matchin bridgehead taking
the town of Ratchelu on the Danube
I ten miles across the northwestern neck
of Dobrudja from Matchin and oppo-
site the Bessarabian shore.

Paris today reports the repulse of an
attack in force by the Germans be-

tration of but one trench south of the
