na was instructed by cable to-
night to inform the Austro-
Hungarian government that*
Dr. Constantin Dumba no
longer is acceptable as an en-
voy to the United States and to
ask for his recall.
Secretary Ijansing formally
announced the action. It was
the answer of the American
government to Dr. Dumba's ex-
planation of his intercepted
letter to Vienna outlining
plans for handicapping plants
in this country making war
supplies for the allies.
Ambassador Penfieid was
Instructed by cable yesterday

In making lils announcement Sec-
retary Lansing explained that it had
been delayed in order that the note
might reach Vienna before its publi-
cation in this country.
Ambassador Penfieid had not been
heard from tonight but it was assum-
ed that he received the "Communica-
tion some time during the day,
News that Dr. Duma's recall had
been requested created a sensation In
tlie capital. It had been known In of-
ficial and diplomatic circles that Pres-

regarded the conduct of the ambas-
sador as a grave breach of propriety
but there had been a well defined Im-
pression that the only Immediate step

LONDON* Sept. 9.—The German
crown prince is making another de-
termined attempt to break through the
French lines in the Argonne and ac-
cording to the Berlin official statement
has succeeded in taking trenches over
a front of two kilometers (ons and
a quarter miles) and to a depth of
from 300 to 500 meters, capturing two
thousand prisoners, forty-eight ma-
chine guns and sixty-four mine throw-

This Is the second effort of the Ger-
man emperor's heir to win a victory
In this region within the last three
months and although on each occas-
ion he gained a small amount of
ground he is apparently as far from
his objective this time as on the prev-
ious occasion. Fighting was in prog-
ress all yesterday and throughout the
night and still was going on when the
last report was issued. This doubtless
is the German reply to the ertiliery
bombardment which the allies kept
up for fifteen days but which now
seems to be dying down without any
Infantry attacks as had been antici-
pated. Instead, except for heavy gun
action south of Arras, bomb throwing
seems to have taken its place.

which they claimed a substantial vic-
tory had helped to liven up matters.
From the Gulf of Riga to OUta,
south of Kovno, the Germans state
the situation Is unchanged, while their
center from that point to and beyond
the Pripet marshes continues to ad-
vance. Thence to the Roumanian
frontier the Russians are stiil the ag-
gressors; they are endeavoring to pre-
vent the Invasion of Bessarabia.
On the whole the Russians appear,
with fresh supplies of ammunition to
be making a better stand. They are
aided doubtless by the rains which are
turning the roads, especially in the
region of the Pripet and its affluents,

a special session of the sobranje (the

chance to meet mail ord<*r prices be-
fore sending money out of town, and

LONDON, Sept. 9.—The raid of Zeppelins last night
is described by the Pall Mall Gazette as "London's
first glimpse of the war at close quarters."
The Evening Standard speaks of the coolness shown
everywhere, but warns the public against the noticeably
widespread and dangerous disposition to regard the af-
fair as a species of spectacle."
NO AMERICANS KILLED.
Washington, Sept. 9.—No Americans were killed or
injured in the Zeppelin raid on London, according to a
state department dispatch received here late tonight
from the American embassy at London. The message
said the Zeppelin had dropped bombs on the city and

Progreso crossing of the Rio Grande
about thirty miles above Brownsville.
T-hey-shauted across, the river today
to American soldiers at that point
that they would not fire upon Ameri-
can troops. They also announced
they would reserve the right to fire
upon any rangers, deputies or civilians
who appeared upon the American
bank of the river.
The lower Rio Grande valley bris-
tled with troops tonight, disposed of
in two lines in a manner giving sub-
stantial promise of peace from the
bandits and absolute protection
against serious incursions from the
Mexican side. From its mouth for a
distance of a hundred miles up stream,
there was a line of cavalry patrols rid-
ing the river banks and roads. Behind
the cavalry, a few miles Inland, was
a line of Infantry posts, held In re-

SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 9.—More
than 10.000 eastern tourists who pass-
ed through Spokane this summer en
route to or from tlie California expo-
sitions were met at the railroad sta-
tions and given bouquets of flowers by
committees of local citizens represent-
ing the Spokane Horticultural society.
Under the direction of C. Herbert
Moore, a former mayor of Spokane,
70,000 roses, 200,000 asters and a
quarter million of smaller flowers
were distributed to visitors. The work
was organized early in the spring, and
scores of local residents have deliver-
ed quantities of their choicest flowers
either dally or weekly to the head-
quarters of the society. Here they
were assembled in convenient bou-
quets, and committees laden with
ge baskets passed through the
coaches of passenger trains of the five
continental railroads, presenting
bunches to each of the travelers.
Earlier in the summer committees
devoted a week to tlie distribution of
roses among the guests of hotels and
lodging houses and patients in hospit-
als. This included the more modest
lodging houses, where many of the
sick poor were cheered by the flowers.
Mr. Moore has received hundreds of
letters expressing the gratitude of
travelers for this attention, he says In
a report to the horticultural society.

Tells Dark Secret
RAID OVER HEART OF LONDON.
Chicago, Sept. 9.—The Daily News today bases a
surmise that last night's Zeppelin raids on England
must have been over the heart of London, on two tele-
grams from a staff correspondent at London. The first
"Daily News office and staff here safe." And the
second brief flash—"all well." • • >-lfl
"It is evident," says the Daily News, "that the raid
on the British capital was effective in or near what is
called 'the heart of London.' Our office there is on
Trafalgar square, not far from Westminister Abbey."
BERLIN REPORT OF RAID.

teries, but all returned safe."

BRITISH CAPITAL BOMBARDED.
GerigMa Airmen Drop Bombs In Cen-
ter of Old lioiulou.
In their Ia4«st Zeppelin raid over ;
England tlie Germans apparently have
succeeded at last in striking at the
heart of London. The inference may
be drawn plainly front various cabis
dispatches which have passed the cen-
sor that the German aeronauts drop-
ped bombs on tlie old city of LondMt
in the region which contains th« k(-
tels, business district and the old
landmarks famous the world over. In
this district there are normally thou-
sands of American tourists at this
time of the year, although their num-
ber is far below the average this sum-
mer on account of the war.
Details Are Suppressed.
The Germans in their Zeppelin at-
tacks have aimed repeatedly at Lon-
don. They have succeeded previ-
ously in dropping bombs within the
metropolitan district but so far as is
known no earlier attempt produced
the effects of Wednesday night's raid,
in this connection it is significant that
the British press bureau in announc-
ing the result of the attack confined
Itself to an account of the casualties,
making no reference to property dam-
age, as was done in earlier announce-
ments of the kind. The German war
office was almost as reticent, saying
in its official statement that bombs
