LATE WAR NEWS SUMMARY
Continued From First Page,
the small German cruiser Bremen has
been damaged badly by strilting a mine.
Official denial is made in Petrograd
of the report that Grand Duke Alex
ander Micl'.aclovitch, brother-in-law of
Emperor Nicholas, was killed in fighting
In Persia. »
In view of the predicted entrance
into the war of Rumania and perhaps
Italy, unusual interest attaches to dis-
I patches indicating that disquiet in the
Balkans is spreading. Italy may be
called upon soon to resort to force of
arms in Albania. The insurgents are
said to be bringing up guns to direct
against Durazzo, the port recently oc
cupied by Italian forces. Servia's as
pirations have expanded since her vic
tory over the Austrian army, and ac
cording to a Rome dispatch she now in
sists that, in the event of victory for
the allies, she must receive Bosnia,
i Herzegovina and Dalmatia. Italy has
j sent troops to tho Italian islands in
i the Aegan Archipelago, which sh e is
I fortifying. Rumania is to begin the
1 mobilization of her army late this
Although the Austria-German forces
in Poland apparently have gave up for
; the time the offensive movement, fight
ing of a local character continues. Vi
enna reports that an attempt of the
Russians to cross the lower Nida, in
Southern Poland, was repulaed. The
attack apparently means that the Rus
sians have determined on another move
on Cracow, the Galician stronghold.
Army headquarters at Petrograd
states that German attacks on the Rus
sian positions along the Vistula were
beaten back. A minor victory over the
Turks in the Caucasus also is an
FRENCH PisS" CONSIDER
REPLYTO U. S. PROTEST ON
j Paris, Jan. 12, 5.05 A. M.—The re
| ply of the British government to Presi
dent Wilson's protest against inter'
ferenee with American shipping is
widely commented upon in the French
press. All consider the reply moderate
and conciliatory and express confidence
that a satisfactory arrangement will be
in writing to the "Figaro'' on the
subject, Gabriel Hanotaux, former Min
ister of Foreign Affairs, says:
''The good faith of both sides being
beyond doubt, the British note appears
to me to furnish a basis of agreement,
the result of which will be helped by a
realization that neutral commerce bene
fits very largely by the necessities of
the belligerents" and should, therefore,
show itself disposed to submit to in
' convenience. A clear, frank discussion
j of the matter is a hundred times better
j than smouldering discontent."
Amsterdam, Via London, Jan. 12,
12.15 P. M.—The Cologne "Gazette,''
referring in a recent issue to Great
Britain's reply to the American note
on shipping, expresses the opinion that
this communication from I*>ndon, in
spite of its expressions of friendliness,
is in fact a flat negative.
The "Gazette" upholds the conten
tion that the increase of American ex
ports to neutral countries has been due
entirely to the increased home require
ments of these countries.
STOUCH CHORUS EFFECTS
Spooner and Irwin X of Evangelistic Par
ty Present at Meeting Last Night
of 1,200 Tabernacle Singers—Of
Prwfcßeor D. L. Spooner, musical di

" When I was asked to sing at a
church during the holidays," he saild 1 ,
"I almost broke up a Christmas can
tata by rendering 'The liummies Are
oa the Run.' "
He told of the work of the Altoona
campaign, in which he said the co-op
erating ministers of that city are all
working hard for its success. He
praised the local chorus for effecting
an organization and planning to con
tinue its work.
It was arranged that the chorus
should sing at Reservoir Park during
Ihe summer months, that a trip should
be made to Lancaster when the Stough
party open? its campaign there, and
1 that meanwhile groups from the body
should sing at various local churches
| as called for.

HAND-TO-HAND BATTLE IN
WHICH FRENCH ADVANCE
THEIR LINE HALF A MILE
Nancy, Via Paris, Jau. 12, 4.4 5 A.
M.—The French troops were ordered
to take the offensive between the Meuse
and Moselle on January 8 and the fight
ing that followed Resulted in a distinct
Freneh gain. Whje on the wings the
infantry attacked Le Pretrie wood and
tho forest of Apremont, the artillery,
massed behind Flirey, awaited the right
moment to open fire. The batteries
had been deftly concealed during the
night, but, nevertheless, as soon as the
morning mists floated awav, German
shells began to fall among the gun
ners. Twice the positions were changed,
but still the shells fell thickly.
It was then noticed that the sails
of a dilapidated wiud mill moved in an
Unaccountable way, since there was not
a breath of wind, and five men were
sent to investigate. As soon as they
reached th« building a man jumped
from tho window and fled towards the
German lines, but he was soon brought
down by a French bullet.
At noon the French guns opened fire
and at the same time an aviator an
nounced that the German center had
been weakened because the Germans
were obliged to send help to the left
wing, which was hard pressed in the
IjePretrie wood. After hours of shell
ing the German guns were put out of
action and the French infantrymen
dashed forward. The Germans un
masked quick-flrers, but their assailants
were well into their stride and unheed
ed the fire.
A fierce hand-to-hand struggle fol
lowed along the edge of the wood and
the Germans were fnrced back onto the
muzzles of their own quick-firers, which
pumped lead into them for ten minutes,
an error which enabled the French en
gineers to reach the principal work and
blow it up, as well as the windmill.
By the end of the day the Germans had
been driven well into the wood of Saint
Baussant and the French had gained
an advance of half a mile.
