FOIt tho kind of war which Is now being
prosecuted on tho eastern front the
stories of battles and lntrenchments In
Franco offer no guide and no parallel.
Tho entlro line from Verdun to tho sea
equals in extent only that part of the
Austrian line which has been under at
tack since the first of the month. A
battle front at least twice as long has not
yet entered Into the account. Tho tor
rain Is different, the stylo of warfare Is
different, and tho gains mado must bo
reckoned by a dlfferont standard.
At tho end of tho magnificent Austro
Gorman drlvo into Russia last year tho
Russians found themselves facing three
armies. Tho northern army, which had
failed to tako Riga and Dvlnek, halted
on tho Dvlno. Tho central army ex
tended from tho region of Vllna to tho
Prlpet marshes. South of thoso marshes
and extending to the Rumanian boundary
waa tho army which Is now In such des
perate straits at the hands of tho Rus
sians. No geometrical flguro can qulto
glo tho shape of this frontier. If tho
reader will lay a wlro on tho map from
Czornowltz to Riga and then bend It to
follow various rivers, snap It about three
fifths down (for tho Prlpet marshes), and
tlo little strings at various points for tho
railroad lines, ho will havo eomo idea of
tho battlo lino. Hardly otherwise
Tho Russian attack has been on tho
flvo armies (ono German, four Austrian)
which extended from tho Prlpet to Ru
mania. Virtually every point of attack
has been aimed at a railway Junction,
and tho general direction of tho major
attacks makes tho lines look Ukd a some
what sharp angle, with tho apex at tho
strangely fated fortress of Przcmysl. South
and cast of that point Czornowltz has
bcn isolated by the capture of a railroad
town abovo It Duo cast an attack is
being directed In tho region of Tarnopol.
North and cast tho most spectacular of
fensive goes on with Lutsk as the famil
iar point. These thrco drives seem all
directed at Austria and the centres of
attack aro cither in or near tho Austrian
border. Thoro aro reasons, military and
political, for this.
But boforo theso causes aro considered
there remains ono question. What will bo
tho German reply? Tho German army
under Von Llnslngen, cooperating with
tho four Austrian armies, haa suffered
with tho rc3t; but to tho north lies still
tho menaco of Von HIndenburg, with an
enormous army, easily equal to tho Rus
sians In understanding of tho country and
woll supplied. That army, as tho Rus
sians facing It, rests on the marshes, not
yet adaptable to largo-scalo strategy. It
Is under no desperate compulsion to keep
its lines true to that of tho southern army
nor is Kuropatkln compelled to advance
or retreat as Bruslloff moves. Yet the
Russians know that they muBt ovcntually
meet and defeat tho northern armies or
their southern victories will not bear per
fect fruit. Petrograd, Influenced perhaps
by Its hopes, reports that German troops
havo been shifted southward to stiffen
Austrian resistance in outcomo already
noticeable. But so far thero is no reason
to believe that Germany will forego her
own offensive. It is even possible that
tno northernmost. of tho threo Russian
offensives now has, besides Its Austrian
objective at Lemberg or Przemysl, tho
important Junction of Kovol, cutting tho
lino from Brcst-Litovsk, on which part of
the upper German forces depend. It re
mains to be seen whether tho army of
Kuropatkln is as well supplied and as
capablo as that which Is reclaiming vast
spaces for Russia In tho south.
The reclamation of land could hardly
havo been a mottvo In Russia's campaign.
Russia bas bo much to spare. Tho -Russian
drive, in its military aspects, was in
fluenced by conditions in tho west, at
Verdun and in Italy among others. It
had, moreover, certain political motives,
in which both Austria and the Balkans
aro Involved. For Austria a decisive do
feat from her major enemy might deter
mine that separate peace of which she has
never ceased to think. Her Slavic rogi
ments have not been heroic fighters and
her mixed population has not been en
tirely loyal. In Budapest and at Vienna
the murmurings havo been loud for peace.
Yet longabeforo tho Carpathians aro
crossed thero must bo an Imposing Rus
sian army in Bukowlna, tho Austrian dis
trict nearest Rumania, the district halt
promised to Rumania as a prlzo if she
Joins Russia in the field. In that way
the Russian offensive is a demonstration
for Rumania's benefit. It explains to her
that while Germany has lost the driving
power which took Novogeorglevsk (of
which Verdun Is the proof), Russia has
regained lhe power which threatened tho
Hungarian plains twenty months ago.
The invitation to come in is rosy, with
promises of a short and decisive stay, for
with Rumania on thelr'elde the Allies can
(virtually eliminate Bulgaria, settle the
Balkan question and open Russia's way to
the sea. It Is a prize worth winning. Yet
vast as the operations must be In the
game, they are less than half of the com
plications in Germany's scheme of victory.

WOMEN IN POLITICS
To the Editor of Evening Ledger:
Sir Tho new woman's parly Is undoubt
edly making politicians tl.Ink, and Is, with
equal certainty, Impressing thoso mighty
wielders of public opinion, newspaper ed
itors This morning's mall brought to our head
quarters copies of tho St Loult Star, the
St. Louis Globt Domocrat and tho St Louis
Republic, all of which hae featured tho
new party With theso papers camo an
editorial from the Chicago Herald of last
Sunday, which will, I think. Interest your
readers. Tho Herald say3:
Tho chance, or the danger, which
ever It may be regarded, of any large
number of women voting solidly on
sex lines appears to have passed for the
present. Now' that the Republican Na
tional Convention, "as a measure of
Justice to one half tho adult people of
this country, favors the extension of
suffrngo to women," though "recogniz
ing tho right of each State to settle thli
question for Itself," the Democrats can
hardly do less.
Before doing less the Democrats had
better confer with Dudley Field Ma
lone and get his impressions about the
stiffness of the stick exhibited when he
and the representatives of the other
men's parties came before the 'Woman's
party convention In Chicago last week
In response to a "show us" Imitation
That convention Impressed all ob
servers as a notable example of an
Implacable efficiency. Thoso women
knew exactly what they wanted and
were entirely sure that they knew how
to get It. With them soft words but
tered no parsnips. They openly derided
John Hays Hammond when he tried to
take a tone somewhat paternal.
They said to the Prohibition and So
cialist spokesmen, "We cannot bother
with you; you have not the power to
give us what we want" They said in
substance to the others: "Go tell jour
parties that 3,000,000 women can oto
for President now and that we will do
our best to Bee that they vote against
the party that rejects our demands."
The Republican convention did not
grant their exact demands. Its plat
form subcommittee, under the influence
of the defeat of suffrage in Iowa on
Tuesday, seemed In a challenging mood.
But the second thought of the full com
mittee was for "safety first." It grant
ed at least a "we favor," and the con
Opinions differ whether the persua
sions of the "elder statesmen" of the
suffrage cause, the leaders of the Na
tional Association or the menaces of
the younger leaders of the Congres
sional Union were more potent. Colonel
Roosevelt's maxim was applied, though
one group spoke softly and the other
carried the big stick. The Republican
action looks like an effort to ward oft!
the stick. Natural InBtlncts of caution
may move the Democrats to do no less.
Woman has definitely made her ap
pearance In national politics, and not
merely as a pleasing and persuasive
auxiliary, but a3 an organized force,
equipped with power to punish and re
ward, and definitely resolved to use It

To the Editor of Evening Ledger:
Sir It Is necessary for tho writer to uso
two car lines to reach home, and, therefore,
to transfer from ono car to another. This
should be ory little trouble, for In many
cases tho second car Is but a short dtstanco
away. It Is, however, certainly annoying
nnd Inconvenient to see a car at the Junc
tion, almost Inviting a person to hurry and
board her, and thon havo the motorman
start off and tho car move serenely on its
way, leaving you to wait 10 or 15 minutes
for another rar.
I understand that this habit Is not the
fault of tho transit company, but of tho
employes, who in the face of luch obliging
services wish to enlist the sympathy of the
public to secure for them shorter hours and
Tho writer understands that occasionally
a car la late and must, therefore, mako up
tlmo that Is lost But the point Is that it Is
not occasionally but frequently that such
annoyances are experienced
May something bo done to remedy the
case? W. H. FISHER.

By comparison, Grover Cleveland looms
large, In the history of the Democratio
party. The one flaw in his statesmanship
was his advocacy of free trade a fault
common to both Cleveland and Wilson, In
all respects Cleveland ranked far above the
next Democrat to occupy the White House.
Cleveland was a sincere and consistent ad

opponent of extraveganca who had the

phrasing In the passage referred to In the
Evenino Ledger of June E. It read as
follows: "Noah and his three sons and
their wives," and not "Noah, his three sons
and their wives." It would be very Inter
esting to know whether you .u-puld nnd
this phrasing as faulty as that which you

Editor of "What Do You Know" Apropos
of the Inquiry ot Sir. C, II, 8, anent "A
Tale of Two Cities," you might supplement
these remarks for his benefit and other Mr,

ens' novel of that name was done In film
about four years ago by Vitagraph; also,
the rest ot his works have been treated by
either Btograph, Edison, Thanhouser and
others many moons ago. This Is necessarily
a costume play and not popular with pro
ducers. If, however, there are any others
who should want to undertake t, each com

President Jackson Is quoted as having talA,
This James Crawford was his Aunt Craw

Boykln, who surveyed tho Waxhaw settle

very definitely located in South Carolina,

barely escaped the North Carolina line.
But another of the President's annU,
Mrs. Sarah Leslie, and her daughternSIrt
Sarah Lathan, always Insisted that their
world-famed kinsman was born at his Aunt
McKemy's house, in North Carolinathat ,
they remembered well because they
both been summoned thither In the night to
assist Mrs. Jackson, and because they had
actually witnessed the birth. Until hf
old age, Mrs. Lathan repeatedly related
how she and her mother had hurried that
night to McKemy's, by "the near w7
through the fields." Three other neighbors
are known to have testified that they
were present at McKemy's when Andrew
was born there. And a patriarch of that
region, one James Faulkner, used to de
clare that once, while they were sleeping to
gether' at McKemy's house, Andrew Jack
son had toldlm that It was his birth
place. In 1854, Col. S. H. Walkup, ot Union
