"The Turks, apparently In order to re

after tho battlo of Sari Kamysh, again
have taken the offensive vigorously In the

This dispatch has been received from
"The number of Germans and Austrians
now directly employed In Turkey Is much
larger thnn Is generally supposed. Before
the outbreak of tho war between S0O0 and
12,000 Germans had come to Constanti

In Turkey on the understanding that their

"At the 'present time all tho ships In

BERLIN, Jan. 0.
German aviators have resumed their
activities all along the western battle

age to the enemy. Half a dozen aircraft
successfully bombarded the military do

was completed a detachment of British
aviators, on biplanes mounting rapid-fire
guns, went in pursuit. The outpome Is

German airmen also successfully
dropped bombs on tho railway station t
Armentleres, setting It on Are. It la re

Three aviators also bombarded Fort

Pontiff Uholds Utterances
of Belgian Prelate in De
amnd for Release Arrest
ROME, Jan. 0. Tho Kaiser ha3 wired
to tho Pope, denying tho arrest of Car
dinal Morcler, who, ho says, wns merely
warned to discontinue his antl-Gcrman
propaganda In Belgium, which, tho Kaiser
felt sure, the Popo disapproved.
Tho Kalsor's telegram, which Is a reply
to tho Pope's appeal for tho release ot
the cardinal, Is Intended to provoke tho
Pope's condemnation of tho Belgian pri
mate, a condemnation which then would
bo used as Justification for the restrictive
measures adopted against tho cardinal.
The Pope, howovor, Instead ot disap
proving1 of tho cardinal's attitude, openly
announced that tho cardinal as a Catholic
Belgian was duty bound to strive toward
tho Independence of Belgium; that in his
place he, tho Pope, would havo done tho
same. It Is said that tho Pope was per
sonally acquainted with the cardinal's
pastoral letter beforo Its publication and
gaye It his approval.
Unless the cardinal's complcto freedom
of speech and action Is guaranteed, tho
Popo Is determined energetically to In
tervene, and not to tolcrato tho persecu
tion of tho cardinal In tho exercise of his
spiritual ministry. Hence, If necessary,
ho could summon tho cardinal to Rome,
this being the only means to piotcct his
inviolability as Archbishop and Prince of

In mind tho fulfilment of the Christian

Welch, "Billy" Sunday's assistant. Later
In the evening Mr. Welch said that
George Sunday had acted on the advice
of his father and mother.
