Fetrograd, Oct. 14. The Russian
steam roller is going full tilt. Tho
.Slav successes continue. From DVinsk
to Gnlicist, they ore gaining now vic
tories constantly, it was officially
llliixt in the Dvinsk region, the
Kcene of violent figating, for days past,
ix still a center of action. Though tlie
Teutons claim to hold the town proper,
the war office statement reported a vic
tory for the Slavs at the heights to the
northwest, followed by repulse of all
German counter attacks.
South of the Pripet river on the
bank of the Styrn, north of Rufnlovka,
Germans were driven out in disorder.
Several villages were captured, hun
dreds of Teutons were taken prisoner,
ind a number of guns were captured.
The Slav successes along the Strypa
:ire complete. Their capture of Gutvor
onkp marks the crumbling of the form
er successes of the Austrians in Galicia,
and may have a vital effect on the Ru
manian situation, in view of the fact
that this nation was undoubtedly sup
posed to be impressed by the Austrian
strength near the border of the Bal

Washington, Oct. 14. The army's
part in the nationul defense program
was discussed today by President Wil
son nnd Chairman Hny of the house
military affairs committee. Secretary
Garrison's army reorganization plan
was before them, financial coosiderii
tions were uppermost, as both were un
derstood to regard Garrison's previous
plans as too costly. Whut the limit
should be was tentatively considered, in
view of increases figured nt from 50,
000,000 to $00,000,000 above last year 'a
The proposed addition of 20,000 men
to the present force of M7.000 regulars
would be nt an estimated cost of ,$15,
000,(100, while more and heavier guns
for coast and field artillery would add
another 410,000,000 or $15,000,000. The
increase in ammunition, supplies and
reserves would cost $5,000.0011.
Officials hope to keep the army bud
get under 175,000,000, an increase of
from 50,000,000 to 00,000,000 over
last year's figures.
Proposed short teii.i enlistments to
increase the number of military trained
citizens, who would form n reserve, was
also discussed in today's scssien.

International Peace Congress
Would Take This Step To
wards Ending the War
Sou Francisco, Oct: 14. President
Wilson will be asked, personally, and
soon, to call a conference of nentrui
nations to halt the l-'uropeuu war. In
the closing session of the International
P;:.co congress, Dr. DiviJ Starr .lordan,
nitcd pence advocate, was delegated to
e ti e president nu.l to present rcsol
tions calling for such a conference.
The proposed conference, under the
congress resolution, would constitute a
continuing court of mediation.
The congress developed some differ
ence of opinion over clause declaring
"while we don't urge disarmament un
der present conditions, we are opposed
to the present wide-spread demnnd for
preparation against hypothetical dang
ers." Over the opposition of the
"peace at any price" delegates, the
congress adopted this virtual approval
of present armaments. They condemned,
however, having on congressional com
mittees or governmental advisory
boards, men personally interested in the
manufacture of munitions.
President Against It.
Washington, Oct. 14. President Wil
son, is not disposed at present' to call a
pence conference of neutral nations,
according to tliose in tne conterence or
the White House today. Appropos of
the resolution of the International
Peace congress at San Francisco yester
day, seeking such a conference, it was
pointed out that similar suggestions
from Scandinavian otrieiuts ana me
pope had not met with a favorable re-
soonse from the president. Further, it
was understood, lie tins not cnangea nis
ouiinon that the time is not now oppor
tune to make any decided move toward
Officials admitted, however, that the
San Frnueisco meeting ruisod a .new
question, when they suggested the im
propriety of having on government
boards, persons interested in the sale
or production of munitions. It was be
lieved here that the criticism was
filmed at such men as Hudson Maxim
and engineers, inventors and experts
of the General Electric company and
other similar' war supply corporations
who arc on the unvnO udvisory board.

New York. OeV 14 The rnsimintion
of Theophile Delcasse as minister of
foreign affairs of France, was almost
certainly due to the refusal of the
British and French governments to fol

given control of negotiations with the
Balkans. Grey's failure in these ne
gotiations was apparently Pelcasse's
