oa Austria. Although by this act she
arrayed herself against her former al-
lies, Germany and Austria, she re-
mained officially at peace with Ger-
many until Sunday. Before Italy took
this step Germany exerted every ef-
fort to induce her to remain neutral,
sending to Rome as an ambassador
Prince Von Buelow, who for some time
averted war between Austria and Italy.
When he saw a rupture was inevit-
able be took steps toward preserva-
tion of an official peace between Ger-
many and Italy. He negotiated a spe-
cial agreement under which Germany
and Italy pledged themselves to re-
spect the properties and lives of their
respective subjects in each other’s do-
According to unofficial reports from
Europe, Italy’s alHes were dissatisfied,
and at the Paris council of entente
powera in February last asked the
Italian representatives why their na-
tion was not at war with Germany.
Italy already had agreed not to con-
clude a separate peace and at the
Paris conference sanctioned the plan
for a permanent high council of the
entente powers for future conduct of
the war. The increasing co-operation
among the entente allies and the ne-
cessity for bringing into service Italy’s
surplus of troops which could not be
employed on the other fronts without
bringing on war with Germany, grad-
ually brought Italy into such a posi-
tion that it became evident a declara-
tion of hostilities against Germany
was only a matter of time.
The first overt act in this direction
occurred shortly after the Paris con-
ference, probably as a result of it. On
Feb. 29 Italy requisitioned thirty-four
of the thirty-seven German steamships
interned in Italian ports to help the
pressing need of the allies for ship-

Only Hope of Preventing Complete
> Tie-up of Traffic Seems to Lie
Washington, Aug. 28.—President
Wilson’s negotiations for averting the
threatened nationwide railway strike
are in the last stage, with a break
or settlement apparently not far off.
With the railway executives stand-
ing firm against conceding the eight
hour day and the Brotherhood lead-
ers still standing out against arbitrat-
ing it, the hope of prev^yjng a tie-up
of the country’s transportation sys-
tems seems to lie with congress.
President Wilson postponed a meet-
ing with the railway executives, sched-
uled for 10 o’clock this morning, until
2:30 this afternoon, in order to give
him more time to confer with congres-

Kalamazoo, Mich., Aug. 28.—Two

jured, one probably fatally, when elev-
en of fourteen automobiles piled up
at. the first1 turn during a 100-mile
race at Recreation park here Sunday
afternoon. The dead are Marion Ar-

occurred when Peacock’s car, leading
in the race, skidded, striking the fence
at the first turn. It was overturned
and thrown squarely across the track.
Before the track attendants could sig-
nal the other drivers, ten of the ma-
chines, going at a terrific clip, plowed
into the overturned car. Five of them
were completely demolished.

today for the murder of Allison Criner,

July, 1915, was given another 30-day

icans in Laredo. The “dollars” refer-
red to are the disused Carranza cur-
rency, for many months the only cir-
culating medium in the territory con-
tiguous to Laredo.
Various money exchanges had large
quantities of this currency on hand
when the first chief announced his new
"non-counterfeitable” currency would
hereafter be the only money accepted
in this territory.
The old currency can be hail at
sums ranging from $100 to $1,000, and
the price is as low as 25 cents for
$100 in some exchanges. National
guardsmen here have somewhat ad-
vanced the price by their demand for
the currency, to send home as souve-
There is little difference in appear-
ance between the old bills and the
new issue, save the latter is somewhat
neater in appearance.
So far as the average Mexican on
this side of the river is concerned, he
has little faith in the new bills, as
his confidence in the first issue was
shaken when the Carranza government
refused to accept it in payment for
customs dues, taxes and the like.

Italy and Germany have been drift-
ing steadily toward war. In fact,
Italy’s formal declaration amounts to
little more than official recognition of
a state of affairs which already exist-
ed. The declaration became inevitable
when Italy recently sent troops to Sa-
, loniki to co-operate in the campaign of
the entente allies, as Germany is direct-
ing the opposing forces and has troops
on the Macedonian battle line.
