ITALIANS CAPTURE VALUABLE fUUIS 1 CREST OF MONTE SAN GABRIELE 18 TAKEN AFTER THREE I WEEKS HARD FIGHTING. ' —_ THEIR GREATEST WAR FEAT * I Commands Territory on Bouth , and East.—German Attack on Casemates Plateau Repulsed.—Fighting Inmed ed By Some Heavy Rains. The crest of Monte San Gabriele, | commanding the. plain of Gorizia to the south and southeast and the Frlgl do valley to the east, has been cap tured by the Italians after three weeks of the most bitter fighting, the Italian i embassy at Washington announces. This news of victory, probably the greatest teat of the Italian arms thus far In the war, pro cedes the latest official report from Rome. The statement from the Italian war office says that the fight ing on the entire Austro-Italian front was impeded by heavy rain. The Italian effort to capture San Gabriele began after the taking of Monte Santo, directly north, by Gen- Seral Cadorna's troops on August 25. Several times the Italians had reached the summit of the great mountain, so Important to their further progress east of Gorizia, as well as on the Carso, only to be beaten back again. On the slopes of the rugged rock in the lest few weeks has occurred some of the heaviest and most sanguinary fighting of the war. San Gabrlele's top was occupied by the Italians, the embassy reports after the fortified hill or saddle of Dol and the Gargaro basin, the main bulk of San Gabriele had been taken. The Austrlpns, how ever, still cling to some positions on the mountain. In the forest of Tar novo, east of Monte San Gabriele, the Italians captured positions from the Austrlana, after suffering heavy losses. Except along the Casemates plateau on the Alsne front, there has been no marked activity on the other fight ing frdnts. A German attack against the French positions on the Case mates plateau, Paris reports, was re pulsed with heavy losses. Berlin sayß German troops penetrated to the sec ond French line and inflicted severe casualties. The British artillery Are in Flanders, Berlin reports, has in creased to drum .fire.

"It I* Impossible to resist the conclusion that the greater part of them are at heart traitors to the United States." "As time goes on and the character of these acts become* more and more clearly manifest, all who continue to associate with them must come under tho same condemnation. There are some who doubtless do not understand what this struggle really is." TO COMBAT THE DREADED PINK COTTON BOLL WORM Washington.—To combat the dread ed pink boll worm which was discov ered last week near Hearne, Texas, 12 experts from the bureau of ento mology, department of agriculture, have been ordered to Hearne under Dr. W.

I | Break In Relations Is Certain Unless Germany Makes Satisfactory Con- ' \ cessions—Populace is Angry Over Expressions. * Buenos Aires, Argentina government at noon sent to the German legation passports to be delivered to Count Luxburg, the German minister in Buenos Aires. The whereabouts of Count Luxburg still is unknown to the Argentine government. The foreign office sent a communi cation to the German foreign minis tery demanding an explanation of Count Luxburg's action in sending the secret code messages to Berlin thru the Swedish legation. The note sent by Foreign Minister Pueyrredon to Count von Luxburg, in which the German minister was ten dered his passports, reads: "Mr. Minister: You having ceased to be persona grata to the Argentine government, that government has de cided to deliver tt> you your passports which I transmit herewith by order of his excellency, the president of the nation. "The Introducer of embassies has instructions to assist you in your im mediate departure from the territory of the republic. God keep you. (Signed) "H. PEYRREDON." "To Count Karl von Luxburg. en voy extraordinary and minister pleni potentiary of the German empire." The Argentine minister at Berlin has been instructed to inform the German, foreign office that Count von Luxburg has been handed his pass ports and to ask for explanations re garding tha telegram disclosures. If the German government disapproves of the text of the German minister's dispatches and especially of the word "ass," which term the count applied to the Argentine foreign minister, the situation may clear. If Berlin does not disavow the minister's course, Ar gentina will recall her minister from Germany but may permit the legation to remain. ALLOWANCE OF $5 TO SSO A MONTH TO DEPENDENTS Scale i>f Rate* Which Have Heen Ten tatively Approved. Washington.—Provisions of the sol diers' and Bailors' insurance bill for allowances of from $5 to SSO a month to dependents during the service of enlisted mer. were tentatively approv ed by the house. Strenuous efforts of Representative Keating of Colorado, speaking for va rious humanitarian organizations, to' have the allowances raised, failed. He maintained that statistics proved that the proposed allowances would not permit families to live in ordinary comfort, but administration leaders re plied that higher payments would make the cost to the government prohibitory. These are the amounts. In addition to any sum taken from the pay. that dependents would receive monthly: Wife, no children. 115; one child, $25; two children, $32.50; and $5 ad ditional for each additional child. One motherless child. $5; two chil dren, $12.50; three children, S2O; four children, S3O and $5 monthly ad ditional for each additional child.

A Russian republic has been pro claimed. The provisional government under date of September 14 Issued a proclamation declaring that to strengthen the organization of the state a change to a republican form of government was necessary. Danger still threatens Russia, the proclamation says, although the re bellion of General Kornllolf has fail ed. The plan of a Russian ropubjlc has been one of the chief aims of the radicals and the councils of sol diers' and workmen's delegates and was given approval by the recent Russian congress at Moscow. A cabinet tjf five members, Includ ing Premier Kerensky, has beon named to take care of all mattora of state. Tho only party men are Prenjier Kerensky and M. Nlkltlne, minister of posts and telegraphs, both of whom are social revolutionists. The others, Including the ministers of war and marine, are the members of no party. Although the position of the Ke rensky government appears to be Im proving, the action of the grand coun cil of the Don Cossacks In refusing to surrender General Kaledines, their hetman, Is ominous. The leader of the Cossacks Is accused of complicity In the Korniloff revolt. Tho Copaacks protest their loyalty to the govern ment, while Ignoring the govern ment's request for the giving up of General Kaledines. RAINS IN EASTERN N. C.

Tn an nrgumcnt for pood roads some wise man, whose name has been lost, made use of the following: "Roads rule the world—not kings, noi" con gresses, nor courts, nor constnhles, not ships nor soldiers. The road Is tho only royal line In a democracy, the only legislature thnt never changes, .the only court that never sleeps, tlw only army that never quits, the ilrst nid to the redemption of any nation, the exodus from stagnation In any so ciety, the call from savagery In any tribe, the high priest of prosperity, after the order of Meichisedec, with out beginning of days or end of life. The road Is umpire In every war, and when tho new map Is made. It simply .pushes on Its great campaign of help, hope, brotherhood, efficiency and peace." The vnlOo of good roads may be better understood when It Is known that the average cost to farmers of the United States to transport produce to market Is more than 2.'1 'cents per ton per mile. These figures do not In clude the cost of breakage of 1)11 mess or vehicles. Tho cost per ton per mllo over hard-surfaced roads Is less than half the present average. GAINER BY IMPROVED ROADS Careful Analysis Show* Greatest Gain Over Present Conditions I* Man on Branch Road. The development of sentiment for Issuing bonds to build permanent roads has brought to the surface many questions which require careful con sideration and demand clearly slated and convincing replies. Of these, the one recurring most frequently Is: "What advantage Is there In a bond Is sue for the farmer who lives aaverul miles from one of the Improved roads?". At first glance It would seem that the man living (Ureetly upon tho Im proved road obtains the greatest bene fits, but careful analysis proves that the greatest gain over present condi tions Is the man on the side road. With the limited road and bridge funds usually available In any town ship and the necessity of keeping the main highways at least In passnble condition, little or nothing Is left for working upon the less traveled roarls. As repair expense practically censes when permanent roads are built, the road and bridge funds formerly spent on main roivls will be released for use upon the side roads. In addition, money spent upon these side roads will go five times as far, or do five times as much wo[k, as Soil Road in North Carolina. when It wa* sfent Upon tho roads where heavy travel quickly wiped out every trace of the Improvement.

Washington.—Legislation to protect tho civil and property rights of sol diers In effort a moratorium for the duration of the war In behalf of men who are serving their country on the firing linn, may be placed upon the administration's program for this ses sion of Congress as a necessary ele ment of the raising of a citizen army. The "soldiers and sailors civil rights bill," to carry out this purpose already has been introduced In both houses, having been framed la-the^ offleo of Judge Advocate General Crowder. Secretary Baker, It was learned, has under consideration rec ommendations that tho entire weight of adifilnlstratlon Influence be brought to bear to pbtalu early enactment of the measure. To save soldiers and sailors from all klnda of legal Injustice during their absenco from home, the meas ure would nejoln the carrying certain civil court actions until litter the close of tho war, artd establish as legal excuse for failure to carry cer tain contracts, the fact that a man Is In the military service. It Is proposed that creditors' suits against officers or mon may be held up and Judgment by default denied, the frmncrs of the bill recognizing that a man In tho army or navy would have no opportunity to msko his defense In person or arrango for its proper hearing through counsel. If such a Judgment rested agnlnßt a man at the time of his enlistment, tho bill would provent Its execution throuifh the sale of his property dur ing his absence. It would set aside ,*tho statute of limitations so that o debt owed to a soldier might not be outlawed In his abityice It would pre vent the eviction of his family while he was away If they failed to pay the rent; It would protect him against the ordinary results of defaulted payments on buslnciis mortgages and keep him from being sold out In hit absence; It would Insure any right* he might have to public lands, although his service at the front had prevented him from completing the legal acqui sition of tho property.
