NEW YORK. April 20 ( Associated Press ) After tlie scries of
disastrous defeats inflicted upon them on Thursday, defeats
that sent their legions feeling hack with thousands of dead and
. writhing wounded strewing the ground over which they passed in
r ruut. the (iermans made no attempt at any point yesterday to re-
Hume their drives. Exhausted and in need of reorganization. the
rested, as did the British, the latter grimly waiting for further at
. tempts on the part of the foe.
- It is not expected by the British leaders that the (rermans have
abandoned their efforts to break through the British lines at some
. point on the Armentieres salient, or at least to push back the Bri
tish lines to a point where the Germans may stop in safety. The
V Hermans, in their present positions, cannot stop. They must either
"fight on or confess, defeat and institute a voluntary retirement -from
. .the great pocket in which they find themselves, a retirement that
' would be across ground every inch of which is swept by British
shells. .
V" A Reuter despatch to Ottawa last night from British Head
quarters says that there are indications that the Germans will con-,
tinu m their effort to force a way through the British lines or to
pttsh the British lines still further north between Meteren and
Wytschaete, in the direction of Ypres.
' When morning came yesterday, the British were able to look
' ', across' yesterday's battlefield, thick with the German' dead. The
. ground along the Givenchy front bore the greatest evidence of the
German defeat, piles of dead being everywhere. Further evidence
. of the German demoralization on this front, where ten divisions
' had been concentrated along ten miles of battlelinc and where the
German staff had expected to crush the British, was afforded early
. in the morning when many Germans apeared across the La Bas
se Canal, throwing away their rifles and holding up their hands
ffi token of surrender. These men swain across the canal to the
priUsh side and gave themselves up. They refused to po through
1 another day of such carnage as their leaders had driven them into
!,' .'on Thursday. 'Ihe greater number of such surrenders were made
between Givenchy and Festubert, near Robecq.
ii'i'.f GERMANS IN PLIGHT
.. :,, ,.,Thc. pusition of the Germans in their Armentieres salient was
; ma lc nvre nearly desperate yesterday when the weather suddenly
banged, turning cold, with a heavy ra'in that changed to snow and
!ot:t. during the day. The British, on the high ground ringing t'.iv1
wiIh nt, managed to keep their trenches drained, while the Germans
arholdinc, what is fast becoming a great quagmire, in which move
',' nitiiV arc made with the greatest difficulty.
,' Field Marshal Haig reports no change throughout the day on
anjr part of the British front, while, for the first time since the
1 v'great battle opened last month, the official report (nun Berlin con
",'y Jesses that "nothing has been accomplished". The Berlin repqrj
. , concludes with the statement that "the French hae not resumed
,' their attacks at Moreuil." A claim of naval activity is made by
,'. , the German admiralty, which reports fhat German torpedo boats
yesterday shelled the British and Belgian positions along the coast
between Nicuport and Dunkirk.
W'.j.., Practically the only exception to the lull on the front in Norths
v ecn France and Flanders was the German bombardment of the
, 'Hritrsh positions on Kemmel Hill, which was heavily maintained
during the day and which marks the spot where the resumption of
.' . the German offensive is expected.
,' '. 'W'l" There has been some "heavy infantry lighting at certain ec
tors ot the Amiens trout, where the French ha e matt-rially inii
proved their position, to such an 'extent that they h.ie been able
" Jto" rjivcrt further French reinforcements to the threatened points
of .the British line. The French have strengthened their hold upon
. v-Hangard en Santerrem which is now firmly hci.l l them and the
, ' Germans ejected with hea y hisses. The position changed lw nds
. repeatedly during the past few days.
Tlverc has also been genera)
of the French front, but no infantry fighting except a: I'.augard.

Gangs of men were sent out yes
terday morning by City Engineer Can
tia about the city to clear up the
damage done in the various sections of
Honolulu. The duck ponds msuks of
the Waikiki road overf lowediuring the
aigbt and yesterday morning that thor
oughfare was almost impassable. Autos
codling in from Waikiki were obliged
to drive through water np to their hubs.
Early in the morning there was a
stream pouring down Knmehnmelia IV
road ten feet wide. The Knuluweln
Kchool was surrounded with wnter
from' this flood' and children bound for
school yoeterdsy morning were oblig
ed to wsit until the waters subsided.
Owing to the recent heavy raius and
a heavy stream of wnter pouring in
from Maole ditch, Nuuanu reservoir
is filled to overflowing. This is the
first time that "Nuuanu I)nm", as it
is icommonly known, has been filled
to capacity since it was built in 190H.
There was considerable" speculation
fen 'years ago as to whether tjie dam
would hold water if the reservoir be
hind It teas ever filhd to capacity.
Several legislative committees investi
gated the plant and an expert engineer
tvmi brought here from the mainland
to pass an it. Present conditions prove
thnt the dam has filled the purpose for
which it was built.

"Any explnnntion Unit the weather

The weather man. while anticipation

said that the barometer still indicated
that there niore ruin to come, ns
it wan still below minimi.
The heaviest rnyifiill yesterday wns

wet spring season is supposed to be

However, "that April weather" i

average for niaeteen days 1.07 inches.
The total rainfall for this month for

The raiu storm of the iHst few days

that the situation might be clari

In this crisis he stands, as ever,
unalterably opposed to any Home

Ulster, where are the great man
