War Office Is Silent But There
Is Feeling That Blow Will
(By W. S. Forrest.)
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
London, Aug. 81. The war otfice is
as silent as the sphinx, but London
hears something is about to happen on
the western battle front.
The question most asked here today
is "when is the big blow coming off!"
The average Londoner is waiting
with interested expectancy. Ho bo
lieves he will not have to wait long.
All of tho reasons behind tho deduc
tions leading to England's expectancy
cannot be stated here. It is sufficient
to note, however, that soldiers are be
coming more scarce in London. Daily
for the past month thoy have been
moving off to "somewhere in Fiance,"
It is known here that the British front
in France has been lengthened. The
British have been holding but 40 miles,
but how much they hold now the public
does not know.
The Times today called attention to
the military situation in France and
to the possible developments following
the Austro-German drive in the east,
with bitter criticism of the government.
It charged the British were "merely
drifting." The Times asked what the
situation would be if, with the Rus
sians defeated, tho Germans streamed
back against tho western front. Eng
land should be ready for the expected
blow in France, the paper declared.
Loudon, Aug. 31. The greatest im
portance was attached to a hurriedly
called conference of members of tho
cabinet and government leaders at the
office of Premier Asquith today.
The conference was entirely unex
pected and the subject under discussion
was a complete mystery..
Minister of Munitions 'Lloyd-George
was in conference- with the Welsh coal
miners and operators wucn tie was sum

only a few minutes after Asquith had
arrived from the country by automobile.

No New Peace Talk.
London, Aug. 31. Despite the latest
alleged German "peace feelers," the
United Press is able to state on the
highest authority that the peace situa
tion so far as England is concerned
has undergone no recent change.
A few socialist leaders are iu favor
of ending the war. But neither in of
ficial circles nor in the mass of the pub
lie is there any inclination to accept
peace now, honorable or otherwise.
England is determined that the
strength of the new British army shall
be felt and that the Germans must be
driven from France and Belgium,
The above was received from the
London bureau of the United Press in
reply to a query as to tho attitude in
England in view of the revival of peace
talk in Washington, based upon hints

HUNKS TEUTONS TOO
BUSY FOR CONQUEST
Constantinople Will Fall Into
Hands of Allies In Due
By Lowell Mellett.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
New York, Aug. 31. Will Constan
tinople fall, or will the Teutonic allies
save the Turkish capitil for the Turks!
Constantinople will If all.
This is tho opinion of Colonel .Icvrem
J. Popovich, of the roylil Serbian army,
now in Now York on a npeeial mission.
The report from Europe that the Ger
mans and Austrians plan, now Russia
is disposed of for the moment, to re
lievo the situation in the Dardanelles.
They will march thiuugh Bulgaria, if
Bulgaria is willing. If Bulgaria, is not,
thoy will steamroller Serbia. Cnn it be
done? Colonel Popovich was asked.
"Serbia," during its recent compar
ative military inactivity has been pre
paring," ho replied. "She now has a
much larger army than! ever before, mid
ono much bottor equipped, She has es
tablished unlimited Mnc9 of fortifica
tions. "For these reasons and because of
tho unusual bravery of the Serbian
army and the mountainous character of
iuh cuuuuy, una wnn cunHiucruuon ior
other things which I cannot mention,
an army which, wished quickly to sub
jugate Serbia would have to have at
least 800,000 men of German quality,
or 1,200,000 of Austrian quality.
"That is not a joke. We know the
As a military man, Colonel Popovich
does not think tho Teutons can' spine
that many men.
"The most important front of this
war is the Teuton-Russian," ho con
tinued. "There is where the war will
bo decided. I, as a soldier, sec being
performed there two actions with ex
ceptional strategical genius. Tho Teu
tons, with extraordinarily rapid man
euvering, are effecting strong pressure
on the Russian armies and the Russians
with a momentarily difficult situation
are performing strategical maneuvers
with unheard of genius. Thoy are re
treating iu time. They are saving thoir
vital power, their organized military
strength. The war cannot be ended un
til that vital power is obliterated. Con
sidering this axiom of the war art the
Russians are due to become even more
dangerous to Germany in the second
half of the war.
"From what I have said, it is logical
to infer that Teutons cannot spare a
large force of new operations in the
Balkans. It is my opinion that the
Dardanelles will fall long beforo any
force can get through to the Turks' re
lief. Colonel Popovich is certuin ho said,
that Bulgaria through gratitudo to
Russia and a sense of Slav solidarity,
will lino up eventually with Russia,
Serbia and Greece. That menus a forco

opinion today of this initial action of

The United Press dispatch from Lon
don saying there is no inclination in

alter the verdict.
It is doubtless true, it was admitted,
that tho British are not consciously
thinking of a cossntion of hostilities.
But,' nevertheless, it was' argued, it is
important that tiie Germnn concussion
brod a British concession.
The note to Great Britain in further
protest against interference with com

still in the bands of tho state depart

In the Germnn situation, the admin

rival of the fo.'inal communication of
tho imperial government. No anxiety
would bo felt should there be consider
able delay in receiving Germany's for
niul note, as it is realized the report of
tho sulimnrino commander who is sup
posed to have torpedoed the Arnbio

addition to making reparation for the
loss of two American lives, it is ex-
poctod the communication wil bo of
