ATHLETICS SPLIT WITH NAPS;
RED SOX DEFEAT
BIG VICTORY IN
Continue Encircling Move
ment Aimed at Slavs Re
treating From Vilna
ISOLATING FOE IN SOUTH
HEREIN, Sept. 20.
German troops have Inflicted another
severe defeat upon the Russians south
west of Dvlnsk, while the encircling move
ment around Vllna continues.
The Blavs have been driven back
through the Novo Alexandrovsk region
toward the bridgehead at Dvlnsk, the War
Office announced this afternoon.
Co-operating In their efforts to sur
round and capture a great Russian army
near Vllna, Field Marshal von Hlnden
fcurg and Prince Lcopod .of Bavaria
have won further marked successes,, the
German Gereral Staff reported today. The
armies of -both the .German leaders are
;'4drlvlng forward, von IHndenburg on the
.''.'Russians' north flank, where he has
': "reached the DJedntki-HolJane line, and
s Prince Leopold on the south, where he
Is approaching the Myschanka district
after reaching Dworzec.
While Berlin gave Itself up to rejoicing
today, over the capture of the Russian
stronghold of Vilna, military experts pre
dicted the early capture of the Russian
army of a quarter of million men that
his been trapped by tho Teutonic forces
In. the railway triangle, ""whose points
are bounded by Vilna,, LIda and Molo-
k complete German victory in that,
region, together with the shattering of
the, Russians' third line of defense, Is
declared to be. only a matter of days.
Victory for von HIndenbUrg east of
Vllna means not only another retirement
for the Russians, but also the separation
- ef'the Russian, northern armies-from the.
Although the .Russians have achieved
. some local successes in the"Volhynlan
triangle, on the Galtclan frontier, opera
tions, there are regarded of secondary 1m
" portance. Another great German victory
In the northern field would relieve the
Russian pressure on the Gallclan fron
tier, and already the Russians on the
Btrlpa River have been fought to a. stand
still by the Austro-Hungarlan forces.'
With the capture of Dvlnsk two possi
. bllHIes are opened and the General Staff
may choose either one:
"first A campaign to take Petrograd.
Second. The establishing of a German
front on the Dvlna (Duna) River for the

Hottest Contests Involved
in Struggle for Council
BIG RALLY IN 46TH WARD
The primary campaign will come to a
close tonight with the independent forces
engaged In a driving finish In every ward
in the city, and the- Itepubllcan Organ
ization leaders in an effort to Impede the
k progress of the Independents in the large
wards. They will hold their blggesf.
rally of the campaign In the 46th Ward.
A lively fight Is promised at the polls
tomorrow, The flght will center chiefly
on councllmanlc contests In most of the
wards, and a bitter contest on the non
partisan ballot for the nominations for
two places in Court of Common Pleaa
The men in chargi of the independent
campaign spent too.y perfecting their
organization in every ward, and in tak
ing steps to get out the largest' possible
Tor their final wind-up of the primary
campaign, the Republican Organization
leadens will hold the 46th Ward meeting.
The candidates on the Organization slate,
from Thomas B. Smith down to the
candidates for County Commissioner, will
be the speakers at this rally.
The rally has been planned as a last
hour effort to prevent the 46th Ward,
which has always gone strongly inde
pendent whenever tho Organization has
thought It nad clear sailing there, from
going against Smith and the other Or
ganization candidates tomorrow.
In the contest for the places in Com
mon Pleas No. 2, four candidates will,
probably be nominated, out of a field of 17.
The- Organization Is backing Joseph P.
Rogers and Henry N. Wessel for the two
vacancies, 'although the spirit of the non
partisan law Is that no politics enter Into
the Judiciary fights.
Judge D, Webster Dougherty, against
whom the Organization leaders are fighting,-
is rapidly developing strength of
Ma awn. He is backed by a great many
of the leading members of the Phllddel-1
phla bar ami may mna a nomination.
City Solicitor Michael J, Ryan is also
running high in the race. ' v
The iawyers' Committee, which is con
ducting the campaign for the re-election
of Judge Dougherty, has appealed to

ALLIES WILL SPEND
PART OF LOAN ON
ers Open Negotiations
With Arms Men For
NEW YORK. Sept 20.-Havlng settled
the chief details of the arrangements un
der which a great American syndicate will
underwrite a loan of several hundred mil
lion dollars In this country for the Allies,
members of the Anglo-French Financial
Commission today undertook another task
with .which they have been intrusted by
4 thIf -respective OoverhhiqitsVnantely, jtho
I nttrnhniiii Anmmiit'ltlnn 1
lui viiaoo ui ttiiiiiiuiiitjuiifi
Fronl Information, believed- to have
been inspired by members of the Allies'
commission or tho American financiers
negotiating with them, It had been de
duced that the great loan' to be obtained
in the United States would be used to
purchase only the necessities of life,
wheat, corn, meat, clothing, etc., and
that the funds so derived should not be
used to pay for munitions Of war. But
conferences, held by the commissioners
at the Blltmore Hotel today, Indicated
that this Impression' was erroneous.
Representatives of American arms and
ammunition makers called at the hotel
and were taken up, to tho commissioners'
quarters as soon as they appeared. It Is
understood they discussed with the chief
members of the commission the renewal
of the contracts they now have for tho
manufacture of munitions, which were
made through J. P. Morgan, arid the mak
ing of new contracts.
The munition1 and arms men were asked
to furnish new figures as to how great a
quantity of war supplies they could fur
nish Immediately and how much witnln
two years. They were given to under
stand that fresh contracts would be
Signed before the commissioners left New
York. Up to the present time payments
for war munitions have been made In
cash upon delivery of the contract goods,
but payments are now to be delayed for
60 days, or even longer.
Today's callers were asked to communi
cate with their companies and ascertain
what their attitude on the changed sys
tem would be. Two of the callers stopped
to discuss the matter after leaving the
conference, but they fled when the news
paper men asked for further details, say
ing, that It anything were printed It
would be denied.

$1.20 TAX RATE
MAY BE NEEDED
Members of Councils Point
to Increased Expendi
tures as Cause
LOANS WILL BE COSTLY
A tax rate of $1.20 may be authorized
by City Councils to meet the Increased
financial -needs of the city for the next
year, according to members not on the
Finance Committee. Members of that
committee Insist that the present rate of
H will stand next year, despite Increases
In estimates for next year's needs, com
piled by departmental heads and bureau
A meeting of the Finance Committee of
Councils likely will bo held before the close
of Uie week for the threefold purpose of
discussing a permanent loan, the start of
preliminary work on the Convention Hall
and looking over the estimates submitted
for next year's municipal activities. De
partmental heads have been asked tb sub
mit their estimates In duplicate so that
one set can be sent to Comptroller John
wauon and another to the Finance
Committee for the usual process of paring
down. These estimates will be In the
hands of -the financiers before the end of
Mombfirs of Councils no on ihe Flnanc
Committee freely predict liie necessity for
an increase of the tax fate to JtM or
thereabouts. In defence of this view, they
point to the fact that not only will money
have to' be found by taxation to meet
the Increased needs of departments, but
also to provide for tho cost of the new
loans that have been floated and that are
now being proposed.
It Is virtually certain that Mayor
Blankenburg's request for a loan of
tt.2J0.000 for tlfo Frankford elevated will
be used as the basis for a permanent loan
of a much greater sum so as to Include
provision tor a number of permanent mu
nicipal Improvements now under " way.
City Solicitor Ryan Is of the opinion that
no permanent loan can be authorized and
voted on by the people for a sum In ex.
Cf so of 'the present borrowing 9qpacltyQf1
nip cuy. uui xncmuers oi me finance
Committee do not stiaro his views and
assert that-n lolttrtfan be aUthorlied in
excess of its! borrowing capacity and in
anticipation of the Increase In that figure
next year. This point will have to be set
tled In the near future.
A city official who, for obvious reasons,
would not permit his name to be used,
today stated that an increase In the
tax rite would almost certainly follow
the election. From the same source It
was learned that the' tax-rate squpstlon
will be ignored until after the ballots
are counted. Most of the present mem
bers of City Council were elected on "no
tax-rate Increase" platform.
