Donovan, the Boston-Albany chairman, pro
posed at the morning session that tho
brotherhood chairmen return to their homes,

For a time it appeared as though the
sentiment for quick action might not be
checked. There were many speeches.
Brotherhood heads, seeing the trend of the
session, came to the fore and spoke against
such a dractlo force. Finally, through

from a point south of Lake Dolran to the

most easterly field of hostilities is north of

and Lake Tachlno.
Gains have bean scored by both side. On

fighting -wilt soon be taking place on Berblan

By exerting1 their greatest pressure on

have three objects In viewi
first To maneuver Into a position to
strike at the flanks of the Entente enemy.
Second. To. prevent the enunte forces In
southern Albania (Italian) from Joining
hands with the Allied army in Greece.
Third. To prevent the invasion of Bul

Drama-TGrsklJe Railway
The fighting in Northern Greece Is taking
place amidst a Wilderness of barren moun

-where the troops suffer bitterly from the in
tense heat, the lack of water and the lack
of supplies..

forces have come to bo known since th
landing of the Italian 'and Ructtan detach

though the campaign U expected to be a
long and bitter one before the Allies cut
deeply Into Serbia.
Excitement In Greece over the gigantic
campaign which has been opened in tho
Balkans Is growing. Furthermore It Is
being heightened by dispatches from
Bucharest to the effect that the Rumanian
army, approximately 600,000 strong, has
been put upon a. war footing. The entrance
of Rumania Into the war prObably would
compel Greece to abandon her attitude of
neutrality and take a decisive step.
Meanwhile a. dispatch from Athens states
that Turkey Is sending Hurriedly troops In
Bulgaria, presumably to help her Check the
allied offensive along the Vardar. It Is
said that one Turkish division has been sent
In Macedonia, white another Is en route to
the Bulgarian-Rumanian frontier, apparent

Turkey is ready to help her ally should
she be attacked from the north.

their lines forward because of the hot (ire
from German artillery and machine guns.

Continued from Pas One
ceptlng straw ball In the sum of $8400 on
the night of the big Tenderloin raid.
Judge Call Is still "Joe" and "Callle"
with Lane, who discredited the report that
Call had deserted him for Penrose and
McN:chot. and declared that he did not
believe Call aspired to take his place as
leader In the Twentieth Ward.
Lane Is Inclined to be lenient with the
"Judge," for whom he has stood sponsor
politically elnie Call first entered politics,
He won't mix up In Call's troubles wllh the
police over the quarantining of Call's
Twentieth Ward Republican Club as a
gambling Joint, howevor.
"Joe Is nn Impulsive fellow, but ho did no
worse than nearly every other Magistrate on
the night of tho raid," said Lane. "What
is straw ball, anyhow? A Magistrate has
the right to relense prisoners, except per
haps on criminal charges, on their own
recocnlzance 'Callle' made himself person
ally responsible for the appearance of those
19 women, nnd they did appear before the
Grand Jury, I understand."
"Uncle Davo" was not so lenient with
Call's Twentieth Ward Republican Club.
"I have never had nnythlng to do with
'Cattle's' club." ho said. "In fact, I made
him tako tho name of the club from the
windows of tho building. I even threatened
to go Into court and force him to do It"
Lane's faith In the faithfulness of his
lieutenant has remained unshaken In spite
of Call's frequent trips and pinochle games
with State Senator James P. McNIchol.
"Joo has never swerved In his nlleglance
to me," said the city chairman. "He ha
been friendly with McNIchol, It is true, but
he voted for me for delegate last spr.ng,
There's nothing to that story that he
worked against me. I guess that story
came from a report that Call aspired to be
leader in tho Twentieth Ward after I am
gone. -Thoros nothing to tnat. tnougn. joo
will never be a ward leader. He can't
control himself, so how do you suppose ho
can control others?"
Magistrate Call Is no worso than the other
Magistrates, according to Lano. "Other
Magistrates do the same things ns 'Callle,' "
he said, "but you seldom hear of them.
I guess Joe has been singled out because
ho is so Impulsive."
"Uncle Dave" cloied ' his discussion of
Magistrate Call and Magistrates in general
by asserting that he has never studied the
virtues and faults of Philadelphia's magis
terial system He admitted, however, that
the Magistrates had too much power.
"The power of tho Magistrates Is not
limited specifically enough." ho said.
