ROMANCE, PATHOS, HUMOR
FROM THE GREAT WAR DRAMA
AMSTERDAM, Oct. 21.
Information trom an ntithorltatlvo
source shows that the precautions bclnp
taken In london against nn airship at
tack are thoroughly Justified, though a.
While occasional minor raids may be
made on I,ondon sooner If Germany gets
ft foothold on the Channel, the Grand
Aerlnl Armada will not be launched
against England until February, for Ger
many will not he ready till then.
"We are building 200 aeroplanes es
pecially fr tnc attack on London. Thcso
are of a new and extra largo type, ca
pable of carrying 1000 pounds. In ad
dition to tho weight of the pilot and
bomb thrower," said nr German nvlator
"Thefe new aeroplanes will not bo In
commission before February. I am train
ing the flyers now at special aviation
camps. I have been often In London I
nas llylnsr In England Inst spring."
Asked If there was any truth In the
ttatement that Germany had 60 Zoppe
llns six weeks ago, ho replied frankly:
"That Is nonsense But we nre work
ing on new Zeppelins night and day, and
by February we shall have 46."
Confirmation, of a sort, of the planned
aerfal attack on London comes from
Count Zeppelin himself, who returned to
his home In Stuttgart, Wuerttemberg, yes
terday morning, after a three days' stay
In Berlin. Herr Krupp von Bohlon, armor
builder, was In town during the same
time and stayed nt the same hotel, the
Kalserhof, which is the nearest ono to
the Ministry of War.
An American woman, one of tho refu
gee guests, had iccognlzed the venerable
count In tho lobby, and, rushing up to
him, exclaimed: "Tell me, when aro the
Zeppelins going to London?"
Count Zeppelin bowed politely, replying:

Riot and Panic in Avlona,
as Overflow of Refugees
Threatens City Italians
to Police Adriatic.
ROME, Oct 21.
It Is reported Jiere that Italy lias sent
warships to Avlona, the Albanian sea
port, with the Intention of occupying that
city. There Is no confirmation of the
report, although It Is possible, as Italy's
Interests aro threatened by the alarming
The bollcf here Is that Italy would not
hesitate to Interfere If It believes that
Its Interests nre threatened In Avlona.
Gun running In Albania Is being con
ducted most actively. A month ago a
enrgo of rifles destined for tho Matlssorl
tribesmen was landed by nn Austrian
steamer nt San Giovanni dl Medun.
Southern Albania Is not being watched
by the Itrltlsh-French licet, nnd Italy
believes It Is entitled to police tho
Adriatic Italy defends the neutrality of
Albania because of the lack of Interest
of the belllgorents In that country.
Since the Mpret's flight all the pre
tenders to tho throne, especially Prince
Ghlka, tho Duke de Montpenslcr nnd
I'rlnco Iluran Eddln, son of Abdul Hnmld,
ex-Sultan of Turkey, hnvo been vigor
ously smuggling Into the country by
means of sailing ships all tho rifles pos
sible. The conditions In Avlona are arjoallmar.
The city Is overcrowded with refugees,
who were thrown Into n panic by the In
vasion of the Eplrotes from southern
Albania. These people are without homes
In tho city and are starving.
The town Is belnjr ravntred hv nmnlt.
pox, which has killed hundreds, and tho
local authorities nre powerless to combat
It. They are unable to police the city
properly and are hclpleaB under the riots
which nre occurring constantly between
the residents of the town, who havo been
trying to drive the peasant refugees
away. On top of the disease and tho
lawlessness a famine Is threatening.
The Admiralty here announces that
30 derelict Austrian mines have been pick
ed up In the Adriatic. Ten more are still
missing, The question of mines. It may
be recalled, nlmost led to hostilities be
tween Italy and Austria a few weeks ago.

An old man past three score years nnd
ten presented himself In Paris nt the
Invnlldes ono day last week, wearing n.
coat with n. green ribbon and, carrying
nn old-fnshlnncd crtvnlry sword. Stand
ing outside the recruiting bureau ho told
the sergeant he had come to enlist.
"But, sir, you are too old," replied the
young non-commlssloned officer. "You'd
better go home and patiently awnlt word
of France's victory."
"Too old," retorted the veteran. "I'll
never be too old trfrlde a horso and swing

I was a young man then. Now, nfter

"Only yesterday I heard of the dentil

The old man was sent home with n
promise that his application would bo

and learn that ho Is a, veteran of 1870

"There's a gap In the ranks of the old

the call of duty.
A wonderful tribute to the clergy of
France who are with the army In the
field Is paid by a French soldier now ly-
Ilng In the hospital In Paris.
"There Is no doubt about It," said this
typical son of French Industry. "You

"I saw one who was "with us stand on
the earthworks In such a position that
he must have been plainly visible from
tho enemy's lines. Amid a heavy hall
of bullets ho calmly read tho morning
prayer for the battalion and gave us a
benediction. Not a bullet touched him."
An officer of the Irish OuArfln describes
the Incidents he witnessed at the battle
of the Mnrne. 'The whole battalion," he
says, "lined up within a couple of hun
dred yards of the Germans for tho final
rush. The enemy were getting desperate,
andj tho ridge wns crowned with' machine
guns that kept firing n,way all tho time.
The welcome order to fix bayonets nnd

much time In getting at them.
"As we finished the last gap of our

In my experience they made a desperate
attempt to repel us with the bayonet, nnd
tfielr weight seemed enough to hurl us
back, but we stuck to them like leeches,
and nt last their line began to waver.
"They were stretched across the
trenches In one long line, nnd when one
man fell another stepped Into his place.
Near the centre we mnde a break In the
line, and then tho whole lot gave way,
running tike hares, nnd throwing down
their armes ns they ran.
"Wo bnyoncted them by the score as
they rnn, and shot them down In dozens
until we wore completely used up. Their
officers made many attempts to rally
them, but It was no good, and those that
couldn t escape surrendered.
More than 2flo0 of the Canadian troops
encamped here were recruited In New
York. The New York contingent ap
peared today with sweaters bearing tho
emblem of the New York Athletic Club,
and Inquiries concerning the origin of so
many sweaters revealed the fact that
some Hrltons In New York have equipped
2000 Canadians and English living there
and sent them to Canada.
Nearly nil the troops who have been
sent from Canada are here, awnlttng or

nmusc themselves by playing baseball
and football. Many of tho recruits In
the Canadian ranks lived In New York
for many years.
Tho troops are divided Into four camps,
scattered over the Salisbury plain. The
camps nre somewhat Isolated, being four
to seven miles from the nearest town, but
the soldiers have not complained. Tho

By J.' W. T. MASON
NEW YORK, Oct. 21.-The Allies are
succeeding In bending their battle line to
ward the main German defenses in north
ern France and Belgium. Tho towns
rev. being mentioned In the ofllclal re
ports as the present centres of the con
flict are slightly to the east of a perpendi
cular passing through Arras.
Arras is the natural pivot becauso of
railway and highway connections for an
eastward swing by tho Allies against the
German northern communications, more
thar, a fortnight ago, It marked the limit
of the French northern climb toward
Belgium. The efforts of the Allies to turn
to the East from Arras have given the
fundamental basis to their northern
strategy. The necessity for assisting the
e-cape of tho Anglo-Belgian force from
Btlglum caused a diversion, and the
counter offensive of the Germans against
Durklrk nnd other coast towns llkowlse
frustrated an Immediate development of
ma movement from Arras.
The Allied forces owing to these con
fWeratlnn, had to swing to the west,
away from tne German lines. In doing

By nn ARMY EXPERT
PARIS. Oct. 31.
Despite the severe fighting In progress
In tho north, there Ih a growing feeling
here that the real German objective Is'
not the line east from Dunkirk. It Is
considered certain that the attempt to
take Dunkirk will be pushed, nnd It Is
admitted nt military hendquarters that
German reinforcements are coming up,
hut It Is nlso Insisted that the German
General FtHff must realize by now that
Von Kltik nnd Von Boehn cannot hrenk
through the strong allied- line. In con
sequence, attention Is being paid to the
operations of the Germans on their left
centre, ngalnst Verdun and the country
near St. Metiehould.
Another offensive Is developing there,
although the Grman reports that they
actually have reduced some of the Ver
dun forts are emphatically denied by
General Galllenl here today. It is be
lieved that this movement Is a desperate
attempt of the Germans to divert the
French from their Alsace-Lorraine op
eratlons, but. If so. It can hardly sue
ceed, ns plans to meet such a move
ment hnve been perfected.
General von Kluk has been making des
