BRITISH 'DftlVEU
IT OF
E
Situation Such That
Further Retirement
,Wpuld Be Fatal
NEW YORK. April 17 (As
sociated Press) Bringing
a huge force to bear and driving
it forward agalAst the blasting
fire of the British, the Germans
yesterday forced the defenders of
the Wytschaete ' section of the
Messines ridge to give ground
and the greater portion of the
Messines ridge last night was in
the hands of the Hans.
The British fought desperately
for these most important posi
tions but could not hold in the
face of the overwhelming force
driven against them in utter
abandonment of all tactics save
those of massed strength. The
British poured shot and shell into
the gray masses, 'raking them
back and forth with machine
guns and grappling with the sur
vivors in hand to hand conflicts,
but the Germans came on.
FORCED BACK FIGHTING
Early in the forenoon the Bri
tish were forced back from Bail
leul, before which the fighting
for three days has been severe,
this retirement necessitating the
abandonment before attack of the
town of YVulvergham, between
Bailleul and Wytschaete. The
British drew back to the high
ground north of these towns, un
der cover of their artillery, while
the Germans pressed forward
along the valley of the Steenbeck
stream and established them
selves at Spanbroek MHls, less
than a 'mile south of Wytschaete
This brought the Germans intc
a (xisition to attack the Messine
ridge from three sides. For hours
the German field guns pounded
the British lines along the ridge
while their infantry fought it?
way from point to point, clearing
the greater part of it of the Tom
mies, who, m most cases, hclf'
their trenches and craters until
they died, fighting to the last.
In a number of places isolated
numbers of British are still hold
ing out, defying every effort o
the Germans to capture them and
inflicting severe punishment oi
the "mopping up" parties of Ger
mans now swarming over the
greater part of the ridge.
HOLDING HIGH GROUND
On the highest sections of tljf
ridge, just east of Wytschaete
the British are holding strongly
and have beaten back repeated
efforts of the Germans to tighten theii
hold upon their newly won positions
At only one other point of the Oer
Minn salient was there fighting of rou
HiMuenre yesterday. This was south
wimt of v ieux Berquin, about flv
miles southwest of Bailleul ami about
the same distance southeast of Hare
brouck. Here the Germans were de
fen ted ami thrown back.
The location of these two centers of
flKhtiug yesterday indicates that the
OiTinang are concentrating along both
rue nortn an! south sides of their aa
lieut and endeavoring to widen it ratu
it than drive the wedge still deepe

British Must Hold
Any further success of the German
towards Wytschaete or north of Bail
I' ul or Wulverirhem would be very se
nous. Should the Gernjans drive ahead
n'ong this front it would place them

miles northeast towards Koulers, with
its liue of retreat over many miles of

That Irish Feeling
Is Running High
LONDON. April 17 (Asso

passage of the Man Power Bill
on third reading in the commons,
over the vigorous opposition of
the Irish Nationalists, it was an
nounced that the bill to provide
Home Rule for Ireland will be
introduced immediately and that
the Lloyd George cabinet staked
its existence on the passage of the
measure.
This announcement was made
by George N. Barnes, a member
of the British wax cabinet, who
holds no other portfolio, who
stated that if the house, of lords
refused to pass the Home Rule
Bill as it came from the com
mons, the Lloyd George ministry
would resign and 'throw the re
sponsibility upon the upper 'house
of having produced ministerial
crisis in the most serious hour of
British history.
URGES NECESSITY
The Premier made an extended
address in the commons when the
Man Power Bill'wM up for final
reading, among other things an
nouncing that Germany has just
called to the colors another half
million men. Geat Britain must
prepare to match German force
with force and continue to put
her man power into the field until
German militarism is crushed and
defeated. s
It is equally desirable as a war
measure that the bill tp provide

produce a settlement that will
bring contentment to Ireland and
earn fof us the goodwill of the
many friends of the Irish people
in the United States".
ANOTHER BELGIUM
John Dillon, the new leader of
the Irish Nationalists, moved ati
amendment to the Man Power
Bill that -would exclude Ireland
from the conscription provision,
warning the house that it would
he dangerous to pass the bill in
its present form, even when
coupled with assurances of Home.
Rule.
He said that the feeling engen
dered in Ireland at the present
time by the threat of conscription is
the highest he had ever seen and ho
warned his colleagues that the passage,
of the conscription legislation for Ire
land would turn that country into au
other Belgium, as the people would
