The Auckland Star: WITH WHICH ARE INCORPORATED The evening News, Morning News and The Echo. SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 1917. AUSTRIA AND THE NORTHERN SLAVS. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that tee can do. Within the past three years the prominent position that Serbia has taken on the world's political stage has familiarised most people with the idea of Southern Slav unity and nationality, and has prepared us for the establishment of a gTcat Jugoslav State, combining all the scattered and divided elements of the race after the war.

TURKISH RAILWAY DESTROYED The Austrian Emperor, in his speech at the opening of the first session of the Reichsrath since the war began, unequivocally announced his desire for peace, if it could be obtained on anything like the status that existed prior to August, 1914. He announced, however, that, failing satisfactory negotiations, Austria would continue the war till the desired end was reached. Matters on the western front continue quiet, a few patrol raids on the British front and some successful counter-attacking by the French in the Aisne being the only notable features of the past day or two. British naval aircraft raided the enemy lines in Belgium and dropped many tons of bombs on important positions. The Anzac Mounted Division, which has performed so gallantly during the eastward march from the Suez Canal, has made another magnificent assault on the enemy's line to the eastward of the Egyptian frontier, reaching to within five miles of Beersheba, and covering a force which d...
