London Hopeful That Pressure From Monastir May Halt

There Rumanian Resistance Gets Stronger But Are Still
In Jaws of German ViseLittle Fighting Qt:l$ Balkans
London, Nov. 23.The Rumanian official stateme.
issued today after two days
face of sweeping German claims)f "bottling up" of the
Rumanian army, served to increase the hope here that the
forces of the Balkan kingdom in the Jiul valley at least
has ducked from under the encircling arm of General Von
The Rumanian statement did not concede loss to the
Germans of Craiova, but it did announce a retirement
westward from the Wallachian city. Of more interest
here was the statement that the Rumanian forces had
withdrawn from the Jiul valley to "old positions." The
Jiul valley forces were among those at which Von Falken
hayn's encircling sweep was most directly aimed. If they
have escaped, as indicated in the . Rumanian statement,
they may be able to create a sufficiently strong diversion
to relieve the vise-like pressure of the Teutonic crusher
on their Rumanian forces around Orsova.
A stiffening of the Rumanian resistance was also seen
in the statement's report that the lines in the Alt valley
had been maintained.
The retirement westward from Craiova, mentioned in
the statement, would appear to mean that these forces
are swinging to the aid of Orsova defenders.

Herman statements the only ones ob
tainable so far have asserted is penued
up in thut section of Rumania south of
the Danube from the line across be
tween Orsova and Craiova.
Military experts pointed -out today
that the logical section from which
troops would be drawn in reinforcement
of the retreating German-Bulgarian
army north of Monastir would be from
UCnernl Von Fulkeuhayn's Austro-Hun-gtirinu-tiermaii
forces responsible for
the sweep into Rumania. For this rea
son they were gratified with the con
tinued northward progress reported
achieved by General Serrnil's allied
forces now operating out of tho newly
Berlin statements have acknowledged
reinforcement of the nriny opposing this
advance. But if the Serbian-French-Russian-Italian
drive continues with as
much success, experts here look for
further and greater withdrawals of Oer
nian troops diverted to the German-Built
aria n troops' aid, probably from Von
l alkenhnyn's forces. Any considerable
diversion of his forces would certainly
weaken his offensive, possibly in suf
ficient measure to permit of a success
ful stand by the Rumanians and escape
front the jnws of the Germnn vise.
The Herbs have now reached a poiut
5 miles east of Monastir.

"Attorneys Trying to kgree
On Case In Which To Test
Washington, Nov. 23. An increase of
the nation's transportation facilities
would help shatter the high cost of liv

roads, told the Newlnnds congressional
railroad investigating committee today.
Appearing as first witness before the
body which plnns an extensive injuiry
into the relations between the railroads
and the public, Tnoni argued that the
railroads now are under a burden which
prevents successful marketing of their
securities and a consequent lack of de

"There has been less than 1,000 miles
of new railroad constructed in the Uni
ted Htutcs during the past year. This
is less than any year since 1H4S except
the period of the Civil war and yet the
cost of living is greatly advancing,
owing to a shortage of supplies. This
might be remedied by securing access to
new areas of production. Ruilroad fa

the country is to grow and all men or

Ntnnt influx of new monev.
Kaiiroad regulations, he continued, is
the result of a spirit of anger that grew
out of real or fancied abuses in the post.
Thorn contended that the time has come
"for the proper element of hely fulness
to be introduced into the system."
Railroad regulation is a permanent
part of the government bo said, and the
railroads realize that their first duty is
to the public.
Adequacy of railroad facilities Is a
primary public consideration, he de
clared, pointing to the readiness of ship
pers last summer to pay "almost any
thing' : 'to market their goods when a
railroad strike threatened.
. . Case Is Not Typical.
Washington, Nov. 23. Pleas for more
adequate railroad facilities, less sus
picion of railroad management and bet
ter credit conditions were made by the
railroads today to tho Newlands rail
roads investigating committee.
A. P. Thorn, counsel for the railroads,
was stated to bespeak a broader and
more helpful attitude to tho rail lines,
so they may spread out, inceruse Amer
ica's business and better serve the pub

BORDER PATROL IS
Americans Want Both Patrol

MEXICANS OBJECT AS
IT HURTS THEIR PRIDE
Mexican Commissioners Re
fuse to Discuss Internal
Atlantic City, N. J., Nyv. 23. Tho
Mexican-American border question be
ing worked out by the joint commis
sion of the two countries here today re
solved itself into a question of reason
and pride American reason and Mexi
can pride. Kuch side is adhering stub
bornly to Its guns, but neither feels tho
situation is hopeless.
Willingness of the United States to.
withdraw its troops as soon as proiter
safeguards for thc future safety of tho
border have been made, has resulted in
centering all discussion for the present
on the form of border patrol shall take.
An agreement has been reached qp to a
certuin poiut. Mexican members of tho
commission want a mutual agreement

ment uiny pursue bandits back into tho

from this side, just as they will agrea
to allow the pursuit of Mexican ma
rauders across the line' and Into Mex

j This plan, it was learned only to
day, n as Deea agreed to by the Amer

control of an American general.
Ihls is where Mexlcait pride has en-,
tered . Into the controversy. Mexican
troops,, the Carranza representatives
say, , may be commanded only by Mex
ican' generals. ....
Mexicans Must Yield. :.
American members of the commission
have argued that manifestly the tinly
sort of a border patrol that will work
nnd the only sort that will justify the
United States in withdrawing its too"
is one under a single directing hed.
Recause of disorganized conditions in
Mexico, they say, obviously this leader
must be an American.
The Mexican commissioner iasist
that separate organizations under sep
arate heads can handle the situation,
but that in any event, Mexican sover
eignty, involved in the complete con
trol of the country's troops, cannot bs
sacrificed to present expediency.
There is no present disposition on the
part of the Mexicans to yield the point
and certainly there is none by the Am
ericans to accept an arrangement which
they consider less than practical. As for
the other issues, involving Mexican in
ternal policies, mining taxes and tka
like, Mexican commissioners are not dis
cussing these with the American com
missioners. The latter have brought ur
the subject nt times, but the Mexicans)
have only listened. On the other hand,
Mexicans have felt free to discuss tho
subjects with American mining intermit
frid others involved indirectly and havo
communicated back and forth with (ten
