WASHINGTON, Xov. 10. The
American Koveriimcnt will nunit the
receipt of the Austrian government's
statement of fncts concerning tho
sinking of the Italian liner Aneonn
before considering whether any rights
cf Americans hnvo been violated.
Thoso facts probnbly will be sought
through Ambassador I'cnficld at Vi
enna. Tfio state department now has bo
foie it the Itiili.m government's com
munication uddrcH'd to neutral na
tions denouncing the sinking of the
Aneonn as "an unpurnllolcd atrou
ity." The stato department lodav cabled
Ambassador I'cnficld at Vienna to
request from the AiiKlro-lIungntiun
government complete details of the
pinking of the Italian steamer An
co'ia. Tho message was sent after the
department had received through the
Austro-llungiujan embassy here the
statement made by the Austrian min
istry of tnniinc, Seeretnrv Lnnsing
snid tho statement did not contain
sufficient information nnd that Am
bassador Penlield had been instruct
ed to secure nil nvnilablo details. The
request would seem to indicute that
tho stnto department ncccpts it ns
established that the siibmurino was
iVustrinn. There hate been intima
tions that it migiit have been a Ger
man bunt.
Secretary Landing's instructions to
Auibnssndor I'cnfiehl nro to inquire
nnd forwaid such detnils ns nn
nvnilablo. The ambassador also has
other detailed instructions w'lieh the
stato department did not make pub
lic. He will not make any tcpresoii
tatior.s, however.
Todav's action followed quickly the
prcsciitntion to the stato department
of tlm Austrian admiraltv statement
transmitted through the Aiistiinu em

"The morale of tho Serbiuns is

XKW YOKIC, Xov. 10. When tho
ease of the five men indicted hero in
the alleged Germnn bomb conspiracy
was called in tho federal district
court today, domurrers were entered
in bohnlf of two defendants, Hubert

On Issue of "Atlcquato Prepared

Republican for President Save
Root, Taft and Friends Wants
Quarter Million Additional Men.
XKW YORK, Nov. 10. On nn is
sue of ndequnto Thco
doro KoosovcU would supirart any ro
ptiblicnn who was not nn active par
ticipant in tho theft of his nomina
tion four yenrs ago. On theso
grounds Hoot, Taft and their friends
aro burred.
I mako this statement on tho very
best authority.
Cummings would bo eligiblo for
Itoosovolt's support. Durlon is nl
most loo recent a convert to prepar
edness to satisfy tlio colonel.
Doriih might got the KoosovcU sup
port in spite of tho fact that tho con
servationists nro entirely dissutisfied
with his conservation record. Uornh,
it is assumed, would stand for u.
sliong preparedness program.
I'rlco of Support
As the price of his support, Roos
evelt would insist on u short platform
making adequate preparedness tho
leading issue. This might bo supple
mented by a declaration in favor of
u tariff of tho kind which would
"puss prosperity around." Hut tho
whole platform would bo briof, not
bo over a thousand words long, and
would have to stress preparedness oh
tho ono big issue.
Roosevelt's willingness to back n
republican candidate is promised on
the idea that tho Wilson program is
iitadequnte. Spreading thaiiavnr in
crease over it long "period of timo is
unsatisfactory to him, and tho colo
nel has no patience with tho pluu lo
raise u continental army of volun
teers, who, lie says, would not ol
miteer in sufficient numbors nnd who
would not ho ndequntoly trained.
Ho insists that tho regular unity
bo strengthened to u point where it
could ho relied upon to cheek an at
tempted invasion nnd hold the in
vader until tho partly trained volun
teers could bo brought into action.
Wnnt-s iiT.0,000 Men in Army
For this purpose- RooHcvelt recom
mends nn additional quarter of a bil
lion men to tho regular tinny with a
proportionate numbor of officers. N
Whutover program the republicans
adopt, Roosevelt will not support
Root. This is tiuthoritnti.c nnd
Tall; of supporting n republican
candidate does nyt moan that tho
progressive havo abandoned their
party or their plans to havo a can
didate. On the contrary, tho ehanco
Hint the lopublicauw wjll come to tho
Rnosexelt term, nre rcgutdcd by tho
lending progressives us almost nil.
Stnudisittcrs Firm
Up to date tho stsudpnt crowd in
control of tho republican party ma
ohineiy nnd uumpnign funds havo not
seriously considered men like Cum
mins ami Uornh. Thtrir only serious
consideration hud been given such
men as Weeks, Hut ton nnd Grandpa
Root. Therefore, tho progressive
IHtrly a -id its program uru still tho
serious consideration.
Tho stuiinehost progressive in tho
field nt tho prcsont moment is Geo.
V. Perkins, elmiruuiu of tho purty's
executive eomiuitteo. Perkins is a
daily rallying cry to tho party, IIu
is speaking, writing, traveling and
