The respective leaders in announcing
their decision stated that the vote on

Many Copies on Sale at Star-Independ
ent Office —Tells of First Six
Months of Struggle Between Many
Today marks the opening of the
Star-Independent's grand distribution
of the leading account, in book form,
or' the first six months of the war, a
volume which covers every detail of the
great European conflagration as it will
be set down on the pages of authorita
tive histories.
It is divorced entirely from partisan
ship and deals only with the cold facts,
bringing out the great underlying
causes of the struggle in the seeting
caldron of war-mad Europe.
The "Nations at War" is replete
with artual photographs of the mon
archs and their advisers, cities invaded,
great battles with their strategies,
tragedies and comedies, maps and
charts marking the localities; monu
ments of past victorious armies and
sidelights and local color on the civilian
non-eoinbatants. as well as a hundred
and one other details of interest and
importance. These pictures are a real
istic story in themselves, recording, as
they do, each event in regular order.
An interesting map gives a compre
hensive idea of the racial distribution
in the Austra-Hungarian monarchy, the
sections occupied bv the Germans. Aus
triatiß. Hungarians. Magyars and other
subjects of the empire, and also maps
showing the Teutonic- dreams of a pan-
Germanic empire, as well as the Rus
sians' aspiration to domain.
Splendid pictures of the Zeppelins,
aeroplanes, submarines, siege guns and
other devices representing the highest
achievement of scientific progress in
the art of military destruction, as shown
in this wonderful book represent the
labor and ofttimes the risk of life by
the artists who procured them, and they
will be accounted accurate and price
less by all who secure the book.
The text by Willis J. Abbot, to-day
recognized as one of the highest au
thorities and an author of renown, is
handled in a masterly manner, as evi
denced by his famous books, "Panama
and the Canal," "The Story of Our
Army." "The Story of Our Xavy"
and other valuable works which occupy
the shelves of our foremost scholars.
The story is a narration of facts with
never a variation front the straight line
of veracity and neutrality.
The Star-Independent urges its
readers to take advantage of the
presentation offer which is open to
day, the distribution being undertaken
oniv in the public interest, and the
small presentation expense of 98 cents
represents but a fraction of the worth
of the elaborate volume. Adv.*
Circus Parade Doesn't Interfere With
Making Harrisburg More Sanitary
The cireus parade was a £reat draw

■with their work of making Harrisburg

homes to view the parade the uptown
housewives packed the rubbish and
ashes in receptacles and gave the clean
up men full sway when they arrived.

In Belgium further gains have been
made by the Germans. The official
French statement concedes that the
Germans won positions on the disputed
hill No. 00 near Yypres, and that the
British were able to retake only part
of them. Sharp fighting is in progress
elsewhere along the western front, but
apparently with no decided changes.
Two British vessels—a schooner

shells fired by a submarine. The c»*ws
were permitted to leave their ships and
Reports of consistent progress on the
part of the allied forces at the Darda
nelles were contradicted in an official
statement to-day from the Turkish War
Office. It was said the troops which
landed on G-allipoli peninsula were in a
precarious condition, being encircled by
Turkish forces and unable to advance.
The statement was made that only two
points on the peninsula—Seddul Bahr
and Avi Burnu—were held by the al
Dispatches from French and British
sources said further success had been
won by the allies. An attack by Turks
on the encampment at Krlthia resulted
disastrously for them, according to these
advices, the Turks having left 1,300
dead behind them after their repulse.
A British correspondent asserted that
the tip of the peninsula and the entire
western side were under control of the
Rome, Vienna and Berlin advices in
dicated that a crisis had come in the
negotiations between Italy and Aus
tria. In Rome, where it had been felt
of late that war was inevitable, there
has been a sudden revival of hope of
a peaceful settlement owing to the fact
that Austria is said to have realized
the necessity of making substantial ter
ritorial concessions. Vienna regarded as
significant a visit of the Italian Am
bassador to the Austro-Hungarian For
eign Minister, although the outcome
was not disclosed. A Berlin newspa
per said Italy's participation in the
war must be regarded as not unlikely.
Claims were made in Petrograd that
the victory of the Russian army of the
Caucasus over the Turks announced
yesterday was an important and de
cisive one. A force of 30,000 Turks
which attacked the Russians In the
Dilman Khori region was said to have
been repulsed with heavy lo.tses and
compelled to retire in disorder.
Still another neutral steamer has
been sunk in the North sea, although
whether by a mine or torpedo has not
been established. The Danish vessel
Cathay, from Denmark for China, was
blown up, but her passengers and crew,
numbering forty-three, escaped.

Berlin, Via London, May 6. —A pes
simistic view of the Italian situation
is taken by the semi-official "Lokal An

ports that negotiations hetwesn Vienna
and Rome have reached a decisive point
and continues:
"The seriousness of the situation is

understanding is not yet excluded, to
reckon on the arrival of momentous
new* from Home. The king and his
ministers it is true remained at the
capital to-day so that IVAnnuszio was
the undisputed hero of the day at Ge
noa but they did that only in order to
devote their undivided attention to the
last stage of the negotiations.
It still is possible that new pro
posals have been sent from Vienna in
ihe past few days and crossed 011 the
way the statement of the Italian gov
ernment to Vienna. This may lead to
further conversations but even these,
in the present situation, would demand
speedy treatment so one needs to arm
himself with patience for only a few
days more. We can await in calmness
Italy's decision."'

"The allies then extended their
positions along the northern ridge,
whereupon the Turks' position on the
southern ridge became extremely dan
gerous because it was commanded by
the fire bothi from warships and landing
forces. On April 28, the point of in

the forenoon these troops occupied the
district extending a distance of about
a mile and a half from the point of the

a general advance. The Turks replied
from positions a mile from Krithia
which the guns of the fleet had set
atir* earlier in the day. Just north of
this village is Achibaba peak, seven
hundred feet high, which dominates the
region and is the chief obstacle to the
allied advance. The Turks retreated
gradually in that direction from (heir
positions in the southern part of the
peninsula. These movements were
easily followed from the sea especially
by clouds of dust thrown up by moving
batteries, and later the artillery duel
was plainly observed.
"Before evening the allies had
stretched their line across the penin
sula. showing an advance of another
mile and a half, while the Turkish
forces had retreated to the outskirts
of blazing Krithia. By nightfall the
town was virtually in the hands of the
allies and the fleeting was shelling
Achibaba preparatory to an attack
upon the positions there. The same
afternoon there was activity also in the
northern position below Gaba Tepeh.
Evidently good progress was made in
throwing the force across the peninsula
there with the object of commanding
the narrows from the heights above.
At this time a firm footing has been
gained by the landing forces which as

Buildings Being Torn Down and the
Lumber Removed to Steelton
Lochic] Row, located in the south end
of Harrisburg, and for the past fifteen
or twenty years a menace to the police,
will be known in the future only in an
historical sense, for work has alreadv
begun on razing it.
The row was built at the time of Mia
erection of the Lochiel iron mills in"
1566. At that time it was a respect
able place, tenanted 'by steel workers,',
but when Ihe mills were moved the-,
place 'became inhabited by foreigners'
and ucgroes and drunken brawls took
the place of respectability.
The row was recently purchased by
Jonas Reiat, a real estate dealer, who,?
on Monday, started razing the build
ings. With the lumber from the build
ings it. is said IMr. 'Reint will'erect a
similar row in .Steelton.
