Greatest German Military Genius Succeeds Von Buelow In
Command of Armiee Operating In Baltic Region
Russians Offer Stubborn Resistance, Making Numerous
Counter Attacks-French Aviators Invade Bavaria
British Submarines Active
London, Aug. 12. With the "official
announcement from Berlin that Field
Marshal Von Hindenburg is in com--ninnd
ci? the German forces in the Bal
tic region and not General Von Buelow,
new interest centered today in the
fighting about Riga and toward the
Wnrsuw-Petrogrnd railway.
At the beginning of the great War
saw drive Von Hindenburg was in com
mand nlong the Narew liue. The early
operations in the Baltic provinces, it
was officially announced, were carried
'iiit by vast cavalry forces under Von
liuelow. With the determined attempts
muni mt- ui'uig mane 10 seize Kiga,
however, and the fact that Field Mar
tial Von Hindenburg has been placed
in lonimnnd of the Baltic operations,
it is believed the kaiser regards this at
tack on the Russian flank as the most
important movement on the eastern
front.
In view of the violent offensive
which the kaiser has apparently deter
mined ti continue against the Slavs,
the early forcing of the Dardanelles
is regarded ns more pressing than ever
if the Russian situation is to be saved.
There is every indication that tho Dar
danelles assault has been resumed nn
..mKi- ainic tue advance is only ny'"1" "'K mi me iuriusii warship (Joe
vanls, however, and an enormous tnsk
yet confronts the allies in this region.
That the Russians are offering the
loives of Vmti Iliudeuburg .stubborn
resistance is evident from' the German
official statement which reported coun
ter attacks by the Slavs. These at
tacks are declared to have been re
pulsed, but yesterday's statement re
corded no advance for the Germans in
this region, At other points the Kus
sinns nre apparently continuing their
orderly retirement.
As a rosult of the placing of Field
Marshal Von Hindenburg in command
of. the northern flank and the steady
thrust that is being made further into
Hussinn territory in this region, the
belief is growing in military circles
that Petrograd is tho real German ob
jective. Where Korno was originally
planned as the northern extremity of
the new Kussinn liue of defense, 'this
fortress is now besioged and its cap
ture momentarily expected. With the
fall of Kovno this line can no longer
"e ncm uy tne Slavs in the north and
a further retirement may be expected.
Unofficial reports have declared that
the Russians are also preparing to
evacuate Vilna, the junction point of
the railway from Warsaw to Petrograd.
Vilna is about 375 miles from Petro
grad. The principal German effort is
now regarded as the attempt to seize
toe railway to the Slav capital, ac
"minting for the assignment of Von
Hindenburg to the task.

KAN COMPLICATIONS
Defy of General Carranza Presents New DifficultyPan
American Conference Opposes Intervention In Any
Event-Situation Along Texas Border Becomes Acute
-More Mexican Raiders Killed and Entire Population
Is Under Arms
By 0. P. Stewart.
Washington, Aug. 12. President
Wilson faced nn involved Mexican tan
gle today. General Carranza has de
fied him. It is known the udministra-
tion intends to answer, whilo this sit
nation is being dealt with, conditions
along the border aro becoming moro
serious.
The ontiro Atlantic, fleet will lenvo
Newport for southern waters on August
zv, ana though it was domed at tho
navy department that this movement
of tho warships has anything to do with
Mexico their presence nt the southern
frill grounds will put thorn uonror tho
Mexican ports should they be needed.
ftvon berore Secretary of State Lans
ing ami the I'an-Americnn conference
had time to make a final "get to
gether" appeal to thc Mexican factions
'resident ilson received General Car
ranza s message warning them to
('couso meddling." This was followed
by a pronouncement from General Ilcri
berto Jaru, a Carrunzisfu chief, scoring
the administration, tho I'aii-Amoricau
oaleieuce mid financial interests on
both sides of the border ami pledging
armed resistance to outside interfer
ence.
In addition the Cnrriurzista agency
here inndo public telegrams from eleven
Carninzista lenders, including Generals
Ubregon, Gonzales und Trovino, declar
ing they would have nothing to do
with any program which Carranza does
not approve, and pledging their loyalty
to resisting 1111 enforced compromise
wiui tno reactionaries."
The tone of the Caernnzista communi
cation aro not alone defiant but aro on
the verge of insulting. Many officiuls
expressed the belief that they sought
to compel art 11111 by tho United States
as a means of consolidating all fac
tions on Carriiiizas side and winning tho
sympathy of the I'an-Aniericnii powers.
Secretary of Htnto Lansing was tho
first of President Wilson's advisers to
consult with hi in after his return from
Cornish early today. Cariunza's defy
was taken up by the president, ami his
premier. That it was deemed ex
tremely objectionable was admitted.
It was recognized, however, that such
an answer us the administration wanted
to make would likely precipitate a sit
nation south of tho border ns would
render intervention inevitable.
Another conference between ' the
Latin-Aincricun envoys and Hecretiirv
Lansing was regarded ns possible this
arternoon, it wnB believed the de
tails of the coming note to be addressed
to the Mexican factions might require
further consideration by the conferees.
Tho president and Lansing went over
thc final draft today The secretary nf
state said his conference with the presi
dent had not changed the sitiint'on and
that thn note would bo awarded as
soon ns it was finally prepared. Lans
