Italy's "Watchful" Neutrality
Italy will maintain an attitude
of "loyal but watchful and armed
neutrality" if she follows the ad
vice of Premier Salandra.
The premier in a statement
made at the opening of the Ital
ian parliament in the course of
which he frequently was applaud
ed, declared a careful study of her
treaty obligations and the causes
of the present war had convinced
the government that Italy was not
called upon to participate.
Italy, he added, has vital inter
ests to protect and justly aspires
to maintain her position as a great
power and must, therefore, be rea
dy for any eventualities. Thus the
supreme task of the government
was to bring the army and navy
to a state of preparedness.

NEW BATTLE BEGUN BY THE
Defeat for Muscovites Means Un
ited Blow by Kaiser in West
London, Dec. 3.—With the lull
in the battle in the west, which
has assumed the proportions of a
heavy campaign' at widely sepa
rated points, with only occasional
infantry attacks, interest is now
almost centered in the struggle
between the Russian and German
hosts in thq east.
At last the Russians have ap
proached within firing distance of
Cracow, their steady advance
from Przemysl having proceeded
without any real check. They
were reported to be mounting hea
vy batteries around the town of
Wieliczka, which they occupied
yesterday and from which the

Road to Berlin Opening
Important as this is—for the
fall of Cracow would lay open the
roads to Vienna, Breslau and Ber

continues to rest with the opera

Czenstoehowa through Lodz and
Lowicz to the East Prussian bor
der. Official pronouncements as
lo the progress here are guarded
and, indefinite and it is thus dif
ficult to arrive at a conclusion
with regard to the course of
of the Johnstown Water Company
to build a pipe line through land
alleging that the company is pro
ceeding with the work of build
ing the pipe line in a manner not
authorized by the charter grant

easy to induce these singers to!
leave their native land where they
were regarded as great successes,
but the lure of America finally
prevailed. Both are excellent so

solos. Madame Bellini is an ac
