That all of the big army that baa Been

Meantime It will be a simple matter
for tha Austrian tnoopa now in that

BITTER FIGHT "PREDICTED
All Democratic Leaders to Be
Drawn Into Fray That Threat

"WASHINGTON'. Aug. 1. (Special.)
The attitude of William Jennings
Bryan toward the Administration's
programme for better preparedness for
war will be an Important factor in de
termining whether there shall be an
extraordinary session of Congress to
consider these questions.
If Mr! Bryan decides to rally his
peace following" for an open and ag
gressive fight against a considerable
increase In Army and Navy, President
Wilson will not call an extra session.
If Mr. Bryan decides to content him
self with voicing his disapproval of
the Administration programme as to
preparedness for war and to take no
further action, the President may call
an extra session.
Destructive Power Is Feared.
This Is the view of the situation en
tertained by Democratic politicians
here, and it Is founded on present po
litical conditions and the outlook for
the National campaign next year.
There is unwillingness among all fac
tions in the Democratic party to give
special offense to Mr. Bryan. they
fear his power for destruction. They
know that while on the warpath, he can
collect a large-sized personal ion ow
ing, the peace advocates, the little
Army and Navy men, and some enlt;a-
gists. and drive a 1 erne-sized weage
into the Democratic ranks.
Mr. Bryan Is not In favor of the
present Administration policy of a
considerable Increase in both Army
and Navy. He thinks, it Is known,
that his peace treaties, guaranteeing
one year's deliberation before decision
for war can be reached, allow time for
this country to prepare for defense.
Democrat Oppose Prosjremme.
The Administration leaders are try

It is realized by Democratic leaders

Sunday's War Moves
THE anniversary of the outbreak of
the war was passed, without the
occupation of Warsaw by the Germans,
which was understood to have been
part of their programme. However,
news of this climax to the Austro-Ger-man
offensive in the East, which was
begun in the early days of May, is ex
pected soon, for what little informa
tion is allowed to become known is to
the effect the Russians for several
ays have been withdrawing to the
-i-est line, leaving small lorces to ngni
i rear-Kuaru acuuns. so me main armies
might make good their retreat
These rear-guard actions have de
veloped at many places Into fairly
large battles, as the Russians, whose
steadiness has been phenomenal in the
face of defeat, are offering stubborn
resistance to the German advances
and delivering powerful counter-attacks.
For example, they have pre
vented Field Marshal von Hindenburg
from throwing more of his troops
across the Narew, repulsed German at
tacks to the northwest of Warsaw, and
driven back to the river some of the
invading troops who crossed the Vis
tula to the south of Warsaw.
In the southeast Field Marshal Mack
enscn continues his victorious advance.
He has swept aside the resistance of
the Russians and forced them to retreat
along both banks of the Bug.
The Germans have already passed
through Cbelm in pursuit. Thus, on
this front, the retirement of the War
saw armies is seriously threatened.
During the month of July, Berlin says,
the Germans captured more than 93,
000 Russians between the Pilica River
and the Baltic alone.
The Russians, according to Petro
grad, have stopped General von Bue
low's advance In Kovno province, to
ward the Vilna-Petrograd Railway. If
Grand Duke Nicholas is to hoid the
Brest line after his retirement from
Warsaw, it is absolutely necessary that
General Buelow's offensive should be
arrested, for, should he reach the rail
way, he would seriously .interfere with
the Russian communications.
It is not yet certain whether the Rus
sian armies can make good their retire
ment from Warsaw. Certainly the Aus-tro-Germans
are doing their beet to
prevent it, and have moved up strong
reinforcements to hasten their encir
cling movement. The appearance of
fresh troops also suggests that the
German staff will not be satisfied with
the capture of the city, or even the
destruction of part of the Russian
army, but, should this be accomplished.
will attack the Brest line and- endeavor
finally to crush the entire Russian
Meanwhile, the Germans, who appear
to have an inexhaustible supply of
munitions, are lighting desperately to
retain every ppsition which they hold
along the Western front. ' They have
recaptured part of the trenches which
they lost to the British near Hooge,
and are making an effort to regain
what they lost to the French in the
Muenster region of Alsace.
An unconfirmed report comes from
Rome that the Austriana are preparing
for the evacuation of Trieste, and have
already removed the machinery of the

and Mrs. Howard H. Spaulding-. Jr.,
are speeding; Westward on the Over

Railroad, en route to San Francisco,
on the first lap of their honeymoon

ahead of their original schedule.
Bride Kails to Make Will.
The change from their intention of
remaining in this city until Monday
night came after the break that took
Miss Elizabeth Goodrich, who was to
have been Miss Barker's maid of
honor, out of the bridal party. The
gossip, which declared that Miss Good
rich had made the statement that Mr.
Spa'jldlng was marrying Miss Cather
ine Barker, the heiress to J30.000.000.
for her moneys altered the plan of the
bridegroom and his bride to stay In
Chlcapo long enough to permit Mrs.
Spaulding to make a will.
Because of the provisions of the In

band of the wealthiest iirl in America
would have little chance to come Into
the vast Barker. mon y in the event
of his wife's death without-a will.
Guardian Advlnes Maktnsr of VIII.
James B. Fargan. guardian of the
young woman, Is understood to have
advised the making of a will because
of the long journey the two have un
dertaken The trouble, which resulted
from the "slight misunderstanding"
between Miss Elizabeth Goodrich and
Mr. Spaulding, grew to such propor
tions that the remarks credited by the
Harbor Point rocking-chair brigade to
Miss Goodrich, but denied by her fam
ily, have had their effect on the Spauld
ing plans, and they have set out on
their honeymoon without the assurance
to Mr. Spaulding of any more money
than the law allows to him if his wife
should die before making her will.
Mr. and Mrs. Spaulding arrived this
morning, attended by Edson Manlerre,
of Chicago; Daniel Willard, of Balti
more, and Mason B. Starring, Jr., of
New York, who were among the wed
ding ushers, and who boarded the
train at Petoskey with the couple on
Canadian Trip Abandoned.
In the afternoon the party went to
an apartment which they had selected

Although Mrs. Spaulding declared on
her arrival in Chicago that they would
go to St. Paul tonight, they set out
for San Francisco and not on the
Canadian trip that rumor had outlined
for them. Mrs. Spaulding refused to
make any statements concerning the
Goodrich Incident, shrugging her
shoulders, at question of it
Mr. and Mrs. Spaulding arrived at
the Northwestern station Just In time
to board the westbound train, rush-
Ins: through the gateway to their
