SERBIANS INFLICT i REPULSE J
SERBIANS INFLICT i REPULSE, ¡ J ■ IMPORTANT SUCCESS. I' J Austro-Germans Lose I "1 60,000 Men. I VRANJA RECAPTURED. I 1' A special wire to the London Star • torn Athens, dated to-day says-.— On Northern Serbian front Austrians at- tempted to cross the River Danube at t Sabac, but were repulsed. According to official news from Nish, 60,000 Austro-German troops have been j put out of action, and the enemy has been held up near Ovrenovatz and Pozarevac. On Bulgarian front, Bulgarian cavalry captured Vrania, but the place was afterwards re-captured by the Serbians. The situation of the Serbian armies is critical. Their line along the Danube and Save in the north is being pressed back in the centre by the main Austro- German advance. On the eastern fron- tier the Bulgarians have pushed for- ward to the railway, and established themselves in the district of Vrania, the loss of which is admitted'.by the Servians. By the seizure of Vraaia the Serbians it the north are cut off irom railway onxmunkiation with Salonika, and there- fore from their supplies. It is significant that the members of the Diplomatic Corps have left Nish, the temporary capital, for two towns in the direction of the Montenegrin border. The special correspondent of the Ger- man official Colognfe Gazette," in de- scribing the fall of Belgrade, says that not a Serbian flinched, and that they had 'to be annihilated by the bayonet man by man. Even the women of Belgrade took part in the desperate street fighting. Retreat Cut Olf? The Athene correspondent of the I "Morning Post" says: The news from Serbia is still fragmentary. Hailway communications are definitely intc-rlif- ted, as a consequence of th Bulg:. urn I occupation of Vranjt A. Bulgaria jorce ? ha? reacW Kudaa?'?, near 'j 1 joree r The tf..? tc*» is '.o.p.u? emptying ot m- habita?ts, who are flying in anticipation of its being occupied by the enemy. The Bulgarans have also taken Istip and ¡ liadovist, in Southern Serbia, and are advancing upoa Veles. It looks as though the retreat of the main Serbian Army upon. Monastir, on the Greek frontier, has already been cuti off. On the other hand, the Allied reinforce- ments from Salonika appear to have been ffcr inferior to the numbers telegraphed Ror»e daye ago, and even the occupation m Strumitsa seems never to have been actually carried out, though the Bulgar- ian* were pushed back to the frontier there. All depends on whether large Anglo-French reinforcements can be landed at Salonika within the present j wek and be drafted to the front by the 1 Jiiicklle of next week. SERBIAN COUNTER- I ATTACK.

I The question of technical education was discussed at the congress held at i hr-, Textile Institute, Hundredfield, on Friday. It was urged that employers generally had shown little sympathy with this sub- ject, that the attitude of parents had been an obstacle, and that the children seemed to lack initiative. If these difficulties were, to be overcome, we must adopt a national compulsory sys- tem of continuation in education. The value of research must be recognised. Things had hitherto been too easy for us.

David Davies. that" Cardiff was, simply reeking with shebeens," is resented in Cardiff. Seen on the matter by a reporter, the. Chief Constable of Cardiff (Mr. David Williams) said: I should like to know) the source of the information given to the Swansea Town Council; indeed, 1 should I be very grateful if the member of the Council who marie the statement would tell me what he knows, for I know noth- ing of finch a state of affairs. Well, is it a fad" Mr. Williams was asked. No." he replied, it certainly is not. We have additional powers to deal with such a s ituation, if it existed. We are using all our jxnvers under the Defence of the Realm Act. and no more apprehen- sions for shebeening are being recorded now than is usually the case. It is not open to one to compare Cardiff with other towns of similar size, but I wish it were. We are being blamed for our own activity in bringing to light such eases as do exist, and I shall be glad of any in- formation the Swansea alderman may have which has not reached me."

LL I ASTOUNDING STORY 1 GERMANS' CYNICAL DISREGARD FOR DICTATES Or HUMANITY I AMERCAN MINISTER S EFFORTS j The grave circumstance accompanying the execution by the Germans of Miss Cavell, the English nurse in Brussels, are fully set forth in papers released by the Press Bureau on Thursday evening. They include two reports, on furnished by tho Secretary to the United States Legation in Brussels, and the other by the legal coun- sellor to that Legation, both being for- warded by the United States Minister J with other correspondence to Dr. Page, the American Ambassador in London. The facte here set forth constitute together an indictment of cynical disregard of the dictates of the most ordinary humanity which is perhaps unique even in the long record of German official heartlessnees. As revealed by the documents the main poi nts of the story are as follows:— Mi. Cavell was arrested on August 5, but it was not until August 31st that vlr Whitlock, the American Minister in Brussels, heard of the matter. He imme- diately wrote to Baron von dor Lancken, head of the Political Department of the Governor-General, Baron von Bis-sing, but got no reply until Sept. 12, after he had sent a second letter on Sept. 10. This reply stated that the charge was one of enabling British and French soldiers and Belgians of military age to escape the country. Permission was re- fused to Mr. de Leva], the Legal Coun- sellor to the Legation, to see Miss Cavell and arrange for her defence. The Court-Martial. The court-martial (of 35 prisoners in all) took place on Oct. 7 and 8. but it was not until the 9th (Saturday) that Mr. de Leval heard of this from an outside source. On the Sunday he learned that the death sentence had been pressed for in the case of Miss Cavell. When it was learned (again from an outside source, although the promise had been made to inform the Legation) that the death sentence had been passed on Monday afternoon, the nth inst.. a plea for clemency was addressed to both Baron von Bissing and Baron von der Lancken, and strong -personal appeals were made j to the latter by !5r. Hu?h (?b?an. Sec-' retar.v to Amv ean Legation, and by the Marquis do Villalobar, the Spanish Minister in Brussels. Baron von der Lancken first denied the report that the death sentence had been passed. Tie remained unmoved for some time to all the appeals, but finally t-aw the Military Governor, who declined to consider any representation, or plea, for clemency. Deaf to Appeals. Baron von der Lancken declared that even the Kaiser cnuld not intervene, but despite this Mr. Cjbson and the Maropiis de Villalobar pleaded earnestly until after midnight. But the Gorman authorities remained utterly unmoved. Sir Edward Grey, m his note of thanks to the American Ambassador, comments en this callousness by saying that the efforts of the authorities are no doubt prompted by the determination to carry out the sentence before an appeal from the finding of the court-martial could be made to a higher authority, and show in the clearest manner that the German authorities concerned were well aware that the carrying out of the sentence was not warranted by any consideration. Tho pxcf-ution took place at two o'clock on the morning of Tuesday, the 12th inst. No details of the last act of the terrible tragedy are given, and the statement pub- lished in London this week that on seeing the firing party Miss Cavell collapsed and was shot through, the head by an officer whiJeshe lay on the ground, is not con- firmed. It is stated, however, that she frankly admitted that she had given the assistance of which she was charged, and she told the English clergyman who was allowed to see her before her execution that she was happy to die for her country.
