London, England, Nov. SO—The allies' victory at Monastir, in Macedonia, was pushed into the background today by advices from Roumania, The outlook for the salvation of Roumania is blacker than it has been at any other time since the armies ot von Galk- enhayn snd von Mackensen began their double drive in September. **owerfarthrosis within the past 4f hours have driven the Austro-German lines nearly 50 miles into the western part of Roumania. Austro-German forces have cut The Orsova-Craiova railroad, the only railway line running through Roumania from the east to west. This advance menaces the Roumanian army on the line stretching along the Danube In a southeasterly direction from Orsova and will probably compel its retreat. A retirement o* this force will open the way for a brand new invasion of Roumania from Bulgaria, by way of Vidin. or Rahova. The progress of the Austro-Germans in northeastern Roumania is much more difficult. The Roumanians and Russians have massed the balk of their armies In that zone to prevent Roumania being cut off from Russia. But a decisive victory in that sphere will not be necessary if the Teutons keep up their swift progress across the Roumanian plains. An advance across this stretch of level ground 'n Central Roumania will put tbe Austro- Germans In the rear of the armies in the Carpathians and the eastern ranges of the Transylvania Alps, compell- ing-them to flee. Heavy battles continue on the Somme front in France. The allies are keeping up their drive on B*Pnun»e' but with a small degree ot'succese. Berlin dwells upon the severity of the allies' lsses there. ADD set matter- Saturday night. Much booty was captured at Monastir. Before abandoning the city tike retiring troopsVet it on fire and blew up magazines and military works.

'The chief heaor fell te the Servians - led bv Crown Prince Alexander. The city was entered oa the anniversary of the date of its capture from the Turks In 1918T" -' It'Is reported tn a dispatch from Athens that King Peter will leave for Monastir at once, and ■ that he will proclaim it the new Servian capital. The allies have now penetrated nearly 20 mU«-« ,T>to 8ervis« territ"'-v v The brilliant success of the allies in Macedonia was clouded somewhat by unfavorable news from the Roumanians theatre of war.

Fighting in Western Roumania is now tn progress upon the Roumanian plan, about 120 miles west of Bucharest. The Oil i man -Sulci railroad haa also been reached by tho invading army of Austro-Hungarians in Roumania. By these operations, the Austro- German forces have. Isolated all of northwestern Ronmania and may compel a retirement of the Russian and Roumanian troops from the Upper Danube line.

RALPH POTO FIRES THREE BULLETS INTO AUSTIN GIRL THENTURNS HON SELF Alliance Man is Probably Fatally Wounded, While Sweetheart Has Chance to Recover—Shooting of Girl Oc-/ curs in Front Yard at Her Home Near Marlboro. Poto Shoots S«af Four times on Broadway Near the First M. E. Church—Father of Girl Had Forbidden Poto to Pay Court to* Her—Austin Girl Only 16, Assailant 30 Years Old. Unrequired love ia blamed for an attempted dual tragedy today when Ralph Poto, thirty, Alliance, draftsman, fired three bullets at sixteen-year-old Mabel Austin, Marlboro high school senior and several hours Jater sent four bullets into his own body. Poto is dangerously wounded, while his sweetheart is believed to have a good chance of recovery. The Austin girl was shot about'beon employed at the Alliance Machine Company's plant aud also at the Transue & Williams shops. ^ Start Search for Poto. Upon the arrival of tlie Alliance officers a search waa at once Instituted for Poto, the belief of his relatives being that he had taken his own life following the shooting of the girl as it ia said he had at times spoken of self- destruction although never hinting at killing the girl. The story as learned by the officers s that last evening Miss Austin went one o'clock this it. irning in the yard of her home, north of Marlboro. , * Poto at nine o'clock this morning shot himself-on East Broadway near the First M. E. church. Poto recovered consciousness this morning about 10:30 and in answer to a query by a relative;out riding with a young man named. ,„ *~ ...u„*t._- t. , ' Roath and as they passed the Rora- *s to whether he was sorry he fcaugn home ^ey noticed that Poto was 'sitting reading. The couple, apparently were not seen by Poto. About nine o'clock Poto is said to have gene to the Wiley home, nearby, and askml for his revolver which he had loaned to a member of the Wiley family, he stating that be wanted to use the weapon Monday- Miss Austin .and her escort arrived at home shortly before midnight and after the young man had jdriven away and the girl was going up the steps at the residence she says she was grabbed by Poto who held her with one hand as ho fired the first shot which was a scalp wound. A second shot was at her breast and aa she broke away from, him a third bullet was fired and entered her thigh. She was at no time unconscious. Buildings Searched in Vain. The buildings at the Rorabaugh and Austin homes and the surrounding territory was thoroughly searched by Chief Oswalt and Sheriff Cathon but no sign of the young man could be found. The tact that he had not taken his motorcycle, his uncle's automobile or one of the several horses In the barn led to the belief that he had not attempted to make a getaway but. as suggested before, had at onco sought a secluded place and perhaps attempted suicide. Word was telephoned to the surrounding places and a watch kept at Llmaville where ho might go in an effort to get an electric car. **' Sheriff Norwood on Job. Chief Oswalt and Sheriff Cathon arrived at home about eight o'clock Monday morning and while in the chief's office discussing tbe case and communicating with Sheriff Frank Norwood, who arrived at Marlboro shortly after they left, a call was recelve'tl by Sergeant Mitchell from William Culberson stating that a man had shot (Continued on page three.) >hot the girl is said to have de glared: "No, I am not." An attempted murder, near Marlboro, followed by an attempted 'suicide at Alliance, a few hours afterward, form two chapters ot an affair which was recorded Sunday night and Monday morning. As a result of the. two Incidents, Miss Mabel Austin, aged sixteen, is lying at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Austin, two miles north of Marlboro, suffering from three bullet wounds, while Ralph Poto, aged 30 years is at the Alliance hospital, he also having three similar wounds self-inflicted. About 12 o'clock Sunday night Sergeant Leaf of the Alliance notice department was notified of the shooting near Marlboro, and Lieut. John Elliott, in charge of the night police foree, at once communicated with Chief of Police Oswalt and Deputy Sheriff Milo Cathon, who with Dr. John Tressel; in the letter's automobile made a hurried run to the Austin home. It was found that Miss Austin had been shot three times with a 22 calibre revolver, one bullet making a scalp wound, another a flesh wound In her left breast and the third a wound in the thigh. None of the wounds are believed to be of a serious Viature unless complications arise. The shooting is alleged to have been done by Ralph Poto and inspired by jealousy,' it being stated that the man had been forbidden to pay attentions to the girl who resided a short distance from where Poto lived with his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Dan Rorabaugh on a large farm. Mr. Rorabaugh is a well known auctioneer and one of the leading farmers of tbe locality. Mr. Polo is a son of George Poto who resides near Homeworth and is a draftsman and machinist.
