Repulse of Raid Gives Informa
. tion of American Sector In
Lorraine of Which Notice Had
Not Been Given Before
WASHINGTON, March 7
(Associated Press) Amer
ican forces are now occupying
more than eight miles of trenches
in Prance. This is the most def
inite announcement of the extent
of the military participation of
the United States that has as yet
: been issued by the war depart-
merit The statement issued yes
terday does not give the actual
strength of the forces at the front
numerically but leaves this open
tq surmise. It adds that this
frontage is likely to be extended
at any time.
Although the Americans are
occupying this important part in1
the military operations in France
the correspondent of the Paris
.Temps who is with the British
forces writes to his paper that the
Germans persist in their asser
tions that they are unaware 'of
the presence of any American
forces on the Westenrfront. This
'is the report the British are con
stantly receiving from prisoners
who are questioned on the sub
ject of American participation.
They say their officers lead them
to believe that as yet the Ameri
cans are not actively participat
ing in the war.

GUICAgO. March -(Associated
Tress) Following a
refusal on tlie nart of the tn.tior-
j ity of the delegates to he nation
'al convention of the Prohihition
Party to merge the party with
the recently organized National
Party, the convention broke tip in
disorder, witli fiftv-one delegates
bolting and marching oyer to the
National Party convention. The
bolbers were led by their conven

who had been one of the leaders
for the proposed amalgamation.
It was intimated lat night that
at Jeast a hundred others of the
Prohibition delegates would fol

Party in furthering the election
of state and national legislators
favoring the platforms oi both
parties.
Chairman Ferries warned the
delegates of the danger that con
fronted the party in such a course
and in the impractical desire to
only partially merge with the new
party that had adopted a plat
