FRANCE, April 21 (As
sociated Press) American troops
yesterday met the "shock" troops
of Germany in a charge a mile
wide and threw them back in de
feat, inflicting heavy casualties.
There were gas and high explo
sive shells hurled into the Ameri
can lines as a preliminary, a fi
tilla of German airplanes circled
over the American positions,
dropping bombs and spraying the
trenches with machine guns, and
twelve hundred German veterans
in the charge.
When the lively, little battle
was over, the Americans were
holding their lines practically in
tact, the Germans had been de
feated, leaving their dead behind
them in retreat, and two Hun air
planes lay wrecked behind the
American lines.
ASSAULT DELIVERED
The battle Degan yesterday
morning along a mile front west
of the Renners forest, northwest
of Toul, in the valley of the Riv
er Mad, the German artillery
drenching the American positions
with hundreds of gas shells and
hundreds more pf highv explo,
sives. TH bombardment -was
maintained until noon, when the
infantry assault was delivered by
twelve hundred men.
Preceding the infantry were a
score of airplanes, flying low,
which passed over the American
trenches, spraying the defenders
with machine gun bullets as they
rushed from their dugouts to man
their line against the advancing
infantry. The German airmen ex
pected to disorganize the Ameri
can defense, but in this they were
disappointed, the Americans
promptly smashing two of the
enemy planes in mid-air, tumb
ling these down with dead pilots
and machine gunners.
AMERICANS COUNTER ,
The first smash of the Germans
cleared a portion oi the American
trenches and the enemy entered
the village of Seicheprey, twelve
miles directly east of 3t. Mihiel.
An immediate American counter
attack was organized and the vil
lage was cleared of Germans af
ter a furious hand to hand strug
gle in which the bayonet was
freely used and quarter was nei
ther asked nor given.
Taking part in the American
counter were a number of Amer
ican airplanes, which attacked the
German flyers and drove them
back. All the American flyers re
turned from their fighting in safety-
The American lines are prac
tically intact, only a portion of
the advanced trenches remaining
in German hands.
EXPECTATIONS SEEN
The German infantry advanced
the expectation of holding what
ever ground they might win.
They carried entrenching tools
and each had rations to keep him
supplied until the gains rould be
consolidated.
The German losses in killed
were heavy, but only three were
taken prisoners. No American
prisoners were taken.
STRATEGY SHOWN

fighting explains that the Ameri-

IRISH PLEDGED
"TO
Parliamentarians and . Bishops
Urge People To Fight
Conscription
LONDON, April 21 (Associated
Press) Irish parliamentarian included
in the main faction headed by John
Dillon and the Roman Catholic heir
archy of Ireland have united in the
common cause of opposing any effort to
enforce in Houth Ireland the consenp
tion sections of the Man Power Bill,
irrespective of the terms of tho Home
Kule Bill to be presented in the house
nt commons as a government measure
at any day.
Yesterday, in Dublin, the Irish party
members met in conference with Dillon
and decided to stay in Ireland during
the crikis they believe ha been reached
in the relations between Ireland tin
rest of the United Kingdom. They will
stay on the ground to resist conscrip
t ion.
At the conference, each of the mem
bers pledged himself to use all the
political power of the party to defy
tin- Knglish efforts to force involuntary
service upon the people of Ireland.
Catholic United
The Roman Catholic hieraehy has de
clared its support of the anti-conscrip-tionistB
and the Hjnn Fein movement.
even though leaders among the latter
have openly announced that Germany
is their ally and that Germany's eause
is now the cause of Free Ireland. Th
bishops counsel only passive resistance
to tho law, however, and announce their
opposition to acta i f violence.
Reports on thia decision of the bish
ops. cabled from Dublin, point out how
easily this passive resistance may be
turned into active resistance through
me aimosi certain, action or Hotheads.
A pledge to reait conscription by the
most eneetive means at their disposal
will be circulated today among the
Irish Roman Catholic and It la be
lieved that nine-tenth of the Irish
Catholic will pledge themselves ae
cord in ply.

Advices From Washington Say
Call For Hawaii's Quota Def
initely Decided Upon
! Word same from . Washington yes
terday that the war department is
planning to call out a quota' 6f draft
men from Hawaii for the National
Army. 'The figures of the draft are
now all in the provoat marshal gen'
erat'i office, having been forwarded a
ihort time ago by Capt. II. Qooding
Field, selective draft officer for Ha
waii. Captain Field it in possession of no
information from Washington at to
what the draft call will be but when
ever it cornea the number of men asked
for will be furnished without delay, as
every man in Class 1, has been . physi
cally examined and qualified for serv
ice, and the addrea of each of the
71K.3 men i correctly recorded.
It ia understood that the action of
the war .department in planning to
call a quota from the Island is in
response to the patriotic desires of the
people. It is known that Delegate Ka
lanianaole has been persistent in his
efforts to have Hawaii included in the
present call for quotaa from the States.
Furthermore, it is understood at
Washington that the Delegate and
other territorial officials, have demand
ed that the credit for volunteer en
listments ia the army already made
from Hawaii be waived, and not be
considered any part of the man power
which Hawaii can still furnish.
Clasa One Charted
Captain Field's figures of Class 1
men have been charted so that the
provost marshal can tell at a glance
their classification by nationalities, oc
cupations, age and even those that
have had military training. The lat
ter refer particularly to the National
Guard of Hawaii, the draft-age mem
bers of which had a separate ques
tionnaire, under which about 1300 men
were listed for military aervice. This
questionnaire was handled entirely
through local board No. 1 of Honolulu,
of which C. II. Cooke, is chairman.
The serial numbers for the national
guard commence at 5001, so there will
be no niixup with other serial figures
ii the Territory.
Volunteer Oo nil dared
The provost marshal general's office
has had under consideration the vol
uiteer enlistment already made from
Hawaii and wat inclined to consider
this as a part of the quota'to he. In
ill probability this phase will be
waived and Hawaii will furnish a full
quota under the present call.
"I have had absolutely no informs
tion upon the subject of what Hawaii
nny be expected to furnish in the wav
of men for the National Army," said
t'aptaiii Field yesterday. "1 know this,
that we are prepared to meet the call
at any moment whether it comes by
cable or mail, but it will certainly come
by cable."
It is now believed that Hawaii's
national guardsmen who have been reg
istered under the selective draft pro
visions, will form a part of the Class
1 lists ami these will be called to the
colors just as are the civilian draftees.
The total of 7163 includes 950 guards
men. although the questionnaire pro
duced just over 1300 names. The Oo'i,
however, are physically qualified fo'
military service.

LONDON. April 21 -(Associated Press) The British military
leaders in the field are highjy natisticd with the result of the
fighting of the past .week, wherein they held all their ground and
inflicted st.ipqering losses upon the enemy, losses that compelled
the Germans to draw back for a reorganization before continuing
their assaults. The wisdom of the British withdrawals from Faas
thendaele, on the extreme northeast of their Flanders salient need
no defense, it is now believed, the object having become apparent!
The staff at British headquarters expects an early renewal of
:he German offensive, both in Flanders and on the Somme. It is
believed that another big effort will be made to smash, a way be
tween the British and French armies and that at least one more
le9perate effort will be made to capture the Kemmel Hill and open
a road tor the outflanking ot the
British at Ypres.( . -. . . .. ,
