IIOMK, Juno 23.
The Austrlnn fortress of Malborghetto
Is npw practically surrounded, Italian
Alpinists have captured nearly nil tho
positions around tho town, which Is
undergoing a terrific bombardment.
North of Gorltz an Italian machine
gun squndron crept through the woods
and Inflicted he.ivy losses on an advanc
ing column of 30,000 Austrians.
Heavy snows In the heights whero the
Italians are advancing against the Aus
trians are proving a sevefeTbandlcap to
the troops of King Victor Emmanuel.
This has resulted In almost a complete
cessation of operations In the, higher
mountains. On the lower level, according
to latest reports from, the front, the op
posing forces are engaged In a great ar
tillery duel. The Italians have reached
the massive steel and concrete defenses
constructed by the Austrian's; and It will
be necessary to reduce thesf.J)efore the
advance is resumed.
In these operations th"Itallan avia
tors are proving of tho greatest help
spying out the hidden forts of the enemy
and directing upon them n rain of shells.
The Italian artillery is proving highly
efficient, the Improved guns secretly per
fected in the Government plants master
ing those of the Austrians.
The Austrians have brought troops
from the Gallclan front, according to the
latest official gtntement from the, War
Office, which telle of the defeat of one
of three organizations at Monte Nero.
On tho lower Jsonro the Italians have
strengthened their positions and have
repulsed attacks on their Plava positions.
Tho official statement follows;
"Thorughout yesterday the enemy con
fined his activity to long-distance artillery
duels along the whole front.
"At Monte Nera our troops attacked and
repulsed for the first time ,.,battallgn of
Austrian Alpine troops Just arrived from
the Gsllclun front.
"Ntght attacks with Intense artillery

"nn the lower Isonzo we have strength

"The flood caused by the enemy along
the Monfalcone Canal, though decreasing.
Is still an Important obstacle to opera
tions. "Aeroplanes of the enemy threw bombs
within our lines, but did up damage."

WlIATtTON BARKER'S PROTEST.
In a letter to Provost Smith, under data
of April 5, made public today, Whnrton
Marker, ono of tho trustees of the Unl
vcislty nnd one-tlmo Populist nominee
for President, staunchly defended Doctor
Ncarlng nnd Intimated that tho Univer
sity sought to get rid-of those who were
not in accord with its Ideas. Free speech,
ho said, wns evidently not permitted any
longer at tho institution. He also charged
that the attacks launched 'on Doctor
Nenrlng were Inspired by capital, not
because of his original ideas on religion
and economic conditions.
Mr. Barker, referring to the notion
taken by George Wharton Pepper and J.
Levering Jones on the dismissal of Doc
tor Nearing, said that if the University
noted in accordance with their vlows
(which he believod was Impossible), Jews,
Unitarians and other dissenters would bo
driven from tho Unlveisity.

"I am going to write to the Provost
demanding that he resign as head of
the University becnuse of Neaiing's dis
missal In disregard of the faculty rec
ommendation and without consultation
with the vice provost. The case of
Nenrlng is a strikingly good one on
which to drive squarely home this mat
ter of mlsadmlnlstratlon. There is a
man In Pennsylvania to whom Near
Ing's child labor views wero particularly
obnoxious. This man threatened to de
feat Brumbaugh, and after Brumbaugh
was elected Governor he came to Brum
baugh's olllce and told him that If things
were not run to suit, and Nearing sup
pressed, he would flght to cut off tho
university's annual appropriation In the
Legislature, This man was kicked out of
the qovernor's office. Afterward he wrote
to a trustee of the university, making
threats about what would happen If
Nearing was allowed to go on."

on the part of Englishmen at homo to
rally to the support of their brothers on

Probably the most striking part of Mr.
Churchill's speech was that In which ho

when he said that only a fow miles sepa

victory that would havo further reaching
consequences than any action heretofore
Mr. Churchill, In speaking of tho great

3,000,000 men, declared that If Englishmen

swept clear; the submarino menaco Iiob
been fixed within definite limits; tho per

have been established beyond doubt or
question; our strength has greatly in
creased, nctually and relatively, from
what It was In tho beginning of the war,
and It grows continually every day by
