WILLING TO CONSIDER ABAN-
DONMENT OF FLOATING
Berlin, March 2. vi^ London—In its
ieply to the American note concern-
ing tne German naval war zone, the
German Government agrees that, un-
der certain conditions, its submarines
will halt and investigate merchant-
men and will proceed against only
such vessels as are found to be car-
rying contraband or are owned in
nations hostile to Germany.
The reply declares Germany’s read-
iness to accept virtually all of the
American proposals except the one
which would restrict the use of an-
chored mines to purely defensive pur-
poses. The German Government ex-
presses the belief that belligerents
can not afford to abandon entirely
t’ie use of anchored mines for of-
-. Mine Proposal.
It is willing to consider the aban-
donment of floating mines.
In case German submarines take
action, after investigation against
merchantmen carrying contraband or
owned in hostile countries, it is
agreed such action will be in accord-
ance with the general rules of inter-
national law. This presupposes, how-
ever, the abandonment of the use of
the neutral flag by merchantmen. If
such tactics were employed, Germany
contends, it would be impossible to
restrict the operations of submarines
in this manner.
The reply suggests that there be
constituted in the countries concern-
ed American commissions to which
supplies of foodstuffs for the use of
civilian populations could be consign-
ed. This plan, it is said, is contem-
plated in the American proposals. The
reply also suggests that the^e com-
missions should be allowed to import
and control the distribution of other
articles, especially fodder, which are
ot; the conditional contraband list in
the declaration of London, Germany
states interference with articles on
the absolute free list in the declara-
tion ef London should be abandoned.
fcAYS GERMANS ARE STARVING
Tulsa, Okla., March ! 2:—“We ar •
starving,” was the terse message
written upon the inside of the stamp
which bore a letter from Germany
to relatives in Tulsa last week. The
reepipient -of the totter asked to have
hh name withheld. In the letter the
writer suggested thajt those for whom
lit was intended remove the stamp
and preserve, if. By ?o doing they
chanced upon the hidden' message of
theconditions facing the Germans.
Julius Hoofman, an old German re-
siding in Tulsa, received ja letter from
a brother last week in which it was
stated Geramny could not be starved
out in ten years; that tihere was an

RUSSIANS SEEM TO BE PUSHING
GERMANS BACK TO EAST
..London March 2,—The Russian ar-
mies are now engaged In Rattles along
virtually the whole eastern front. In
North Poland, having by means of
lai ge reinforcements been enabled to
resume the offensive, they are pu>h-
irg the Germans back ito the East
Prussian frontier. 'In the Carpathi-
an? and in Eastern Galicia they have
been engaged for several days in re-
sisting fierce and repeated attacks
by the Austrians.
Except in front of the. fortress of
Ossowetz, which they are still bom-
barding with their heavy guns, the
Germans, according to the 'Russian
official reports, have turtied their
backs upon the Russian railways—
their first objective when tftey
emerged from East Prussia on the
heels of the retreating Russians a
short time ago. ,1
In some places, however, they are
fighting stubborn rearguard actions
which have led ta close and severe

Heavy Fighting in Carpathians
For the moment, however. the Car-
pathians is the scene of the heaviest
fighting. The Austrians, who ' de-
spite their repeated defeats and
heavy losses in men and guns, seem
te have a never-ending source .of sup-
ply have returned to the offensive.
This, according to the Russian ac-
count, was without any immediate re-
sult, biit will in time haev its effect.
The- battle continued all day Sun-
day. and when it was ended the slop 'd

At other points along thei moun-

livered and most desperate fighting
occurred. This was especially so on.

Despite ail this heave fighting 'n
the east, the Germans are repotted to

the west for a now attempt which
they are to make to break through
the Allies lines in France and Fland-
ers. The people of the towns of Bel-
gium have been warned to- prepare to
billet a large number of German sol-
diers, which can moan nothing else
than that Germany is making prepa-
rations for another gfeat effort.

Petrograd, March 3.—For the first
t;me in history a prisoner erf war has
been transported by areoplane. War-
saw dispatches today carried the news
to the War office, with the recom-
mendation that Terenti Paschaloff,
Russian aviator, be awarded a medal
for unprecedented daring.
Reconnoitering with his mechani-
cian, Paschaloff was forced to de-
scend inside the enemy's lines in
Southwest Poland because of engine
trouble. An Austrian patrol sur-
prised him -while he was making re-
pairs. Paschaloff turned his machine
gun upon the enemy, killing five.
The sixth member of the patrol was
captured by the mechanician. Pas-
chal off removed his belt, forced the
Austrian to seat himself on the frame
of the biplane and tied his hands
aiound one of the wire uprights.
Crossing the Austrian tinea, the
aviator was subject to heavy rifle fire..
The prisoner managed to loeasn his
bonds and attempted to tear the le-
vers from Paschal off’s grasp and
f’ash the machine to earth. Pascha-
loff turned the lever over to his me-
chanician. Three thousand feet above
ground, with gusts of wind tilting the
Linlane perilously, Austrian and Rus-
sian grappled behind the pilot’s seat.
Paschaloff seized a wrench and
dealt a blow on his opponent which
siunned him. The Austrian was
again strapped to the machine and
