By Captsln GEORGE L. KILMER.
THE assassination on June 28,
1914, of the Archduke Francis
Ferdinand, heir to the throne,
quickly resulted in the outbreak of a
world war. When Austria-Hungary
pressed her demands upon Servla for
reparation Russia championed the lit
tle Slav nation. Germany declared
that her Austro-IIungarlan ally must
have a "free h?nd" in dealing with
Servia, and the storm broke.
The first two years of the war, from
August, 1914, to August, 1916, were
marked by the subjugation of nearly
all of Belgium, part of northern France,
all of Servia and the greater part o 1
Russian Poland by the German armies.
Russia conquered and then lost a large
slice of Austrian territory In Galicla.
Following the invasion of Belgium in
August, 1914, Great Britain and France
entered the war as the allies of Russia.
The German iliarch toward Paris,
through Belgium and France, was ef
fectually checked at the river Marne
early in September, 1914, and in the
weeks following the opposing lines In
France and Belgium were established
practically where they remained for the
next two years.
Italy entered the war In May, 1915,
and attacked Austria by land, east and
northeast of Venice. The first year of
the war saw the fall of Warsaw and
the extension of the German front to
the Dvina river, midway between War
saw and Petrograd. In 1916, the sec
ond year of the war, the Germans at
tacked with great force the French for
tress of Verdun, but were unable to re
duce it This event was followed by a
concerted drive by the French and Brit
ish in northern France against the Ger
man lines along the Ancre and Somme
Throughout the first two years vari
ous local campaigns were inaugurated
by the allies, notably for the capture
of Constantinople (the Turks having
Joined the Teutonic powers late in
1914), with an expedition In Mesopo
tamia to support It. The move against
the Turkish capital failed, and the
forces were transferred to Greece to
operate ngalnst the central powers In
the Balkans, where the Bulgarians
were fighting for Germany. ?
The greatest naval battle of the war,
fought off Jutland in May, 1917, was
a draw, and the large vessels have not
taken decisive part in the progress of
the war. In 1915 Germany started a
system of drastic submarine warfare,
primarily Intended to blockade the
ports of her foes. Belligerent and neu
tral alike were made to suffer in the
submarine zones throughout 1915 and
1916, and an indirect result of Ger
many's naval policy was the entrance
of the United States into the war.
Grounds For Allies' Optimism.
Almost at the close of the second
year of the world war the British
war minister, Lloyd George, speak
ing for the allies, said, "Victory is
beginning to flow in our direction."
It had been flowing in all directions
whenever it flowed at all up to that
time. So the third year of the conflict
opened with optimism ruling In the
camps ofl the allies. On the west front
at the end of July, 1916, it was as
sured that the French would hold on
at Verdun, that the German line on
the Somme and the Ancre was not lm
pregnable and that the Russian drive
headed by Bruklloff in Bukowina and
eastern (Jalicia wuj proceeding with
Irresistible force toward the Stokhod
and th** LJniester.
Emphasis was given to the hopeful
view by Italian success on both fronts
in Austria. TJje great Austrian drive
which began in April and aimed at the
expulsion of Invading armies from
Trentino had been checked. This was
a negative victory because the Aus
trian spoils had been heavy and the
demand on Italian troops had inter
fered with Italy's aggressive move
ments in the south, where the objective
of the Italians was Trieste. The for
tified town of Goritz barred the way
from the Isonzo river toward Trieste,
and after a long an4 costly siege U
fell on Aug. 9. Still further Tigress
of the allied cause in the southeastern
field laid fresh emphasis to Von Ilin
denburg"s assertion that the war must
be fought out in the east. Russia was
making headway in Asia Minor, march
ing from bases in her home territory,
with her armies backed up by her own
fleet on the Black sea. This was real
ly a strategic extension of her new
line in Bukowlna and Galioia.
Roumania Attacks German Rear.
As matters stood then, the third
year opened with a serious outlook for
Germany. Verdun was untaken, and
the allies had stormed the third Ger
man line on the Somme front. Brusl
loff's Russian column had Indeed been
checked on the Stokhod and Dniester,
but Its presence that far south on the
road to Hungary compelled Austria to
keep a strong force north of the Car
pathian mountains. Then came a blow
which lifted the hopes of the allies to
the highest pitch? Roumania turned
upon the Teutons. The situation at
that time was as follows: The belliger
ents were at a deadlock on the Somme
line, the Italians In Gorltz, the sup
k posed key to Trieste, and the allied col
umn from Salonlkl moving north Into
Macedonia to strike Bulgaria in the
rear was making progress. For the
' moment It seemed the allies had the
' advantage In that zone where the de
J dslon was to be reached? the near
Between Two Fires.
It was alleged that Roumania would
; add 400,000 men to the enemies of Ger
1 many. Roumanla's first move scored
a tactical victory. Her troops cross
1 ed the frontier northward into Tran
( sylvanla, where they were Joined by a
Russian column, which marched west
ward, far off .on the southeastern flank
of the Germans on the Dniester.
Forcing the mountain passes, the
> Roumanians captured Kronstadt and
Orsova, but the triumph was not for
1 long. A column of Bulgars, Germans
! and Turks, led by Von Mackensen.
crossed the Danube from the south
into Roumania, taking 20,000 prisoners
in the first blow. Almost simultane
ously Van Falkenhayn's mixed army
! of Germans and Austrians drove down
from the north upon the invading Rou
manians, captured passes in their rear
and destroyed their armies. Kron
stadt was recaptured. By the middle
of October the Roumanians were in
full retreat back over their border on
the north. On the south the Germnas
had captured the main Roumanian
port of Constanza, forced the enemy to
evacuate Cernavoda, on the Danube,
and destroyed the bridge.
Collapse of Roumania.
With the exception of a weak sup
port by her nearest ally, Russia. Rou
mania got no direct help. Early in
November the allies launched a new
grand attack on the Sotnme, and Fran
co-Servians attacked Monastir, on the
southern front. But neither of these
diversions checked German progress in
Roumania. The northern column, com
ing down from Austria under Von Fal
kenhayn, moved southeast into Rou
mania and met a composite force of
Bulgars, Turks and Germans which
Von Mackensen was leading north
west, fifty miles west of the Rouman
ian capital. Bukluirest In vain Russia
began a new drive in the Carpathians.
The Roumanians, strong in numbers,
but weak In resisting power, were
overcome, and in the last week of
1916 the Teutons were in Bukharest.
America In the War.
Two events of sudden development
in the third year of the war may have
a deciding influence? namely, the en
trance of the United States as an ally
of tli? entente powers atid the collapse
of Russia's aggressiveness. During the
early months of the year the submarine
dispute l>etween this country and Ger
many quieted down. A U boat brought
the war into western Atlantic waters
by sinking neutral ships off Nantucket
shoals hi October, but the German
pledge to safeguard neutral lives was
observed. On Dec. 12 Germany and
her allies, Austria, Bulgaria and Tur
key, proposed peace negotiations, nam
ing the United States as one of the
Intermediaries. On the ISth President 1
Wilson sent a note to all belligerents
asking them to name their terms.
Meanwhile the allies replied to G<t- i
many, declining a conference, and Get
many replied to Wilson, evading the I
question of terms and putting off the
discussion of permanent pea e until the
end of the war.
In January 1'resldent Wilson ivvlved
iuterest In the subject of |>eace by out
lining a plan fur a peace lea true, mak
ing "peace without victory," "consent
of t Lie governed" and a "world Monroe
doctrine" the fundamentals for a world
I eace. While tbe whole world was
discussing this turn of affairs Germany
hiforined neutrals on Jan. 31 that sub
inarine warfare would l>e more rutlv
less than ever. Three days later the
German ambassador was given his
passports, und the president Informed
congress of the break and its causes.
Ambassador Gerard received bis pass
ports at Bculiu I-'eb. f>, and on the 10th
Germany, through the Swiss govern
ment, proposed negotiation of the new
dispute. This tbe United States de
clined unless the new submarine order
After Von IlernstorfT sailed and Ge
rard was out of Germany the state de
partincnt disclosed a German plot to
Involve tbe United States with Japan
and Mexico. War measures followed
rapidly. Congress expired March 4
without Indorsing the president's "arm
ed neutrality" policy. A s|>ecial session
of the new congress was summoned to
meet April 2, and meanwhile the pres
ident ordered armed guards placed on
our merchant ships voyaging abroad.
On April 0 congress formally declared
war. Then followed a conscription law
to create armies, loans to the allies
one of $2,(K)0,OUO,000 to the nation by
the people? the dispatch of war vessels
to Europe undeFcouimand of Hear Ad
miral Sims; also of Major General
Pershing, to prepare a base lui the
American contingent alrea?Ty ropresem
ed on the tiring line in France by a de
tachment bearing the Stars and Strii?eH,
on May 25.
The Russian Setback.
During the efforts to secure a diplo
matic i>eace Russia stood firm. The
duma rejected Germany's proposals, and
the Imperial government indorsed Wil
son's peace league note. Russian sup
port of Roumanla had never been
strong and entirely dropped away In
the winter. It seemed that Russia was
powerless. A revolution In which the
troops and their generals figured depos
ed the czar the middle of March, and
there began a state of military Indeci
sion and inactivity while factions con
tended for political control at l'etro
Early in February the German retro
grade began north of the Somme. Ra
paume and Peronne, the goals of
months of bloody struggles, yielded the
middle of March to the allies led by
Nivelle and Ilaig, and shortly the Ger
mans turned and began to resist vig
orously all along the front. "Special
reasons" was Rerlin's explanation of
this great and masterly retreat. Fur
ther withdrawal was forced by British
attacks on the Ypres salient and at
Messines'in May and June.
Western Entente Powers Pressed
The entrance of the United States
as an ally led to an announcement by
British and French commissioners sent
here for conference, among them Mar
shal Joffre, that the resources of Fng
land, France and Italy in men, money,
food and munitions were at a low ebb.
and Russia must be considered as vir
tually eliminated as an aggressive
force. These frank disclosures caused
surprise and deep anxiety on this side
of the ocean, the more so because the
ruthless U boat operations, which be
gan in February, had been more de
structive than expected by the allies,
although their toll had fallen far short
of Germany's estimate? 1.000.000 tons
per month. The destruction of freight
ships varied from week to week dur
ing March, April and May, but the to
tal was so great as to forebode disas
ter unless the evil was speedily sup
The entente's money problem was
quickly solved by affording heavy cred
its to pay for their supplies brought
here. A commission, headed by Elihu
Root, repaired to Russia to swing the
weight of the United States on the
side of the forces In authority who
favor a continuance of the war on
Germany. The response to calls for
troops and immense war funds and
the successful registry for the draft,
followed by the safe arrival of a large
expeditionary force in* France, led to a
reaction (luring June from the misgiv
ings and uncertainties which had pre
vailed for weeks.
Notable among the closing events of
the third year of war are the renewal
of attacks upon the Austrian fronts by
Italian and Russian armies. The Ital
ian movement began early in June and
had for its object the recovery of posi
tions in the Trentino, which the Aus
trians had captured in their great
spring drive of 1010. At the close of
June the Italians suffered a severe
July ojtened with a strong Russian
offensive on the line of the Dniester,
aimed at I.<eml?erg. This was a renewal
in part of the great drive led by Gen
eral Rrusiloff one year before. Inspir
ed by the presence on the field of the
new Rtissian war minister, Kerensky,
the army of General KornilofT, In front
of IlalicJ!. captured that position on the
10th, crossed the Dniester and marched
toward Stryj, taking Kalucs on the
1.1th anil prisoners which raised the
total captives in the campaign to about
The long bruited cabinet upheaval In
Germany took place on the 12th and re
sulted in the resignation of Chancellor
Hollweg and the removal of Foreign
Minister Ziminenuann, who fostered tho
scheme to embroil tho United States
with Mexico and Japan. Hollweg's suc
cessor in office, Mlchaelis, has been
ranked as a conservative on Germany's
war policies. On the 16th the mobili
sation of the national guard, which
will add .100,000 men to the federal ar
mies, was l>egu' -
COTTON GOODS PRICES HIGHER.'
Substantial Advanced in Print*, Ging
hams, and Wide Sheetings.
The rising tendency in textile val
ues has continued, recessions being
noted only in gray goods and a few
brown sheetings. The great volume j
of merchandise being ordered for
government purposes, and the main
tained volume of exports, offset any ,
lessened consumption in retail chan
nels and make for much firmer mar
ket than merchants were anticipating.
New factors in curtailing produc
tion are seen in the beginning of the
drafting process and the steady move
ment of men to the war, either as
prospective combatants or as employ
ees in war industries. Many mills also
find that the summer exodus of oper
atives is larger than usual, and capac
ity output is impossible.
Many impediments to normal trans
portation are affecting the calcula
tions of distributors, and these are
likely to increase as the movement of l
troops and crops increases. Changes ,
of considerable moment are occurring
in the methods of doing business, the
desire to shorten discounts being very
general in producing circles. Econo
mies in the methods of selling at re- 1
tail are being adopted from week to
week, sometimes as a result of co-op
eration, and more frequently because ^
of the determination of retailers to
reduce overhead expenses.
There is more care being exercised
as a consequence of the substantial
increase in money requirements for j
doing business, due to the very high
prices current; yet reports indicate
that net profits are good in many |
stores and in all mill centers. An en
couraging sign is the marked dispo
sition to restrain speculation.
The new prices indicated for spring
dress ginghams last week in the op- 1
ening of the largest lines, showing
advances of two-thirds over last year,
were continued in the openings of
other lines during this week. Staple
prints were advanced 20 per cent,
while a rise of 5c. a yard in wide
sheetings was announced on one lead
ing line and others are expected to
follow shortly. ? Dun's Review, Aug.

Charlotte A Growing City.
The Wilmington Star believes that
with the completion of Camp Greene,
"Charlotte will be a city of about
some 80,000 or 100,000 souls." A cen
sus taken, say in November, would
more likely disclose a population of
135,000 to 140,000 ? and none of the
elastic methods of a police census
would have to be resorted to, either.

Exemption Claims of Men Married
Since July 20 Will Be Scru
The Provost Marshal General has
made the following ruling relating
to claims of exemption on account of
marriage since July 20:
Question ? Can a person married '
since July 20 base a claim for dis
charge on that ground?
Answer ? Marriage is not of itself
a valid ground for making claim of
A man whose wife is mainly de
pendent on his daily labor for support
may claim exemption on that ground.
But dependency is a matter of fact.
The rule does not ask, "Is the hus
band, as a matter of law, liable to
support the wife?" It asks, "Is the
wife as a matter of fact mainly de
pendent on the daily labor of her hus
band for support?" Only the exemp
tion boards can determine this fact.
Where dependency is claimed and the
circumstances show a marriage hasti
ly consummated since July 20 by a
man whose number is high on the
available list, the actual fact of de
pendency must be closely scrutinized.
Moreover, by section 6 of the act of
May 18, "any person who ? ? ?
evades or aids another to evade the
requirements of this act" is guilty of
a misdemeanor; and local boards are
authorized to warn persons who claim
discharge on the ground of marriage
contracted since the date of the act
that both parties are liable to prose
cution under this provision if, in fact,
the marriage was contracted solely
with the intent to evade the perform
ance of military duty.
