After de otmg the, fitt three days ot last week
to preparations the, Teutons launched their latest
phase of the great offensive on Wednesday and
there have followed days of intense anxiety for,
though the Allies have held splendidly to tlx south
thev have been forced back along Messines ridge
and have lost the commanding position at Mount
Kemmcl where they nbw suffer the disadvantage
previously operating against the Germans, they
must fight up from lower ground.
It was -on Friday that this serious titm was
reached.. Bravely as the Allies fought, they were
overwhelmed by superior numbers and were
forced to give way-- The seriousness of this situ
ation was at, once evident to the observer and. al
though there was a lull in the violence of the Hun L
effemivt on Saturday the aspect a uch on at
Qfday night that numbers of military observers
believed it woold be found advisable for the Allies
toabandon the Ypres salient and to fall back to
If this be found necessary the enemy will have
achieved its pHrpose of its recent drive on the
northerly side of "the loop" and will have secured
much more elbow room, at the same time having
uvnided the threatening dancer of an Allied
punter on that part of the line
compelled an abandonment of most of the territory
In one aspect the situation on Saturday night
resembled that of the week before, there was a
pause in the German offensive.. The Hun losses
have again proved tfiormows and it is once more
impossible to attempt to proceed further without
reinforcements, the bringing in of reserves of fresh
' men. But there the similarity ended, for yester
day the Huns resumed the offensive.
' One Week ago yesterday the Americans and
French administered a defeat to the enemy at
Seicheprey. recovering ihe ground lost the pre-
vious- day and that ground they have since re
tained. AJoiig the rest of the front on that day
i there was little to report except preparations.
5tnce then other American troops have seen severe
v fighting with the French in the Hangard' sector,
the, Berlin reports of Saturday night telling of
V'rtronwUckon'.tN Hangard woods, rhiefly' by
T Americans 'IburirfiBf the week there has'leeii ron
V.' fciderable heavy fighting in that sector with the
, v French and Americans making some gains in the
' last few daysV
. V "Wrf 'Tuesday' . the military engagements were
e rriostly'.lotat in character the Allies awaiting the
expected attack of the enemy which was actually
launched upon two distinct sectors next day.
Early Wednesday morning the enemy launched
a .great offensive frotri"' Vpre': to. south of the
Somme arid agaiust the FrancoAmerican front
from its junction with the British to south of Mo
reuit: Desperate efforts were made to break
throufch along the Luce and the Somme River and
on-the Lawe River, in Flanders. But one position
of importance was secured by the enemy and the
Hun. losses were horrible to contemplate.
On Thursday the opposing armies were Kicked
in' grim combat with little change in the general
line. On the Araien front the
ard from the rranco-Amencan torces, who na not
fall back' far. Klsewhere on that front they were
thrown back and on Saturday night had made no
appreciable progress toward Amiens. It was on
that flay it became evident that to the north the
commanding position of Mont Kemmel was the
enemy's immediate objective. Tremendous mass
ed attacks were made upon it.
Oil Friday the Huns won this objective and al
though the British countered heavily they were
unable to regain this lost footing. This was the
nearest approach to disaster of the entire week's
fighting and it is this loss that renders the doubt
ful tenure of the Ypres salient by the British. It
cuts a dep wedge into the British line and opcu
3 danger of being outflanked.
Saturday there was a fell in infantry fighting to
the south as well as to the north and such fighting
as did occur there arose from the aggressiveness
of the Franco-American forces.
1 It was anticipated that the next Teuton drive
WXJuld be on the hills to the west of Mount Keiu
mel and the expectation was 1xrne out yesterday.
On those hi Us the enemy secured a foothold at
" It was on Wednesday that the great naval coup
Upon Zeebrugge and Ostend was undertaken and
resulted in a plendid success in practically closing
the channel at' the former German submarine base
through the sinking of cement laden ships It
Was a daring move and well deserved every whit
of tbeucce9 which it achieved. It will take weeks
at least for the enemy to open thi channel.
There have been indications during the week
that Holland would be forced to throw its ut,
into '"jtWbalance "with Uie Allies' but latest reports
indicated the Dutch fear a fate similar to tint of
Belgiuflt and they appear to be yielding generally
to thjr Huu. demands. The agreement as to the
Limburg, railway would give to the Germans ,t
direct railroad connection with Antwerp.
Qtv the Italian front there has been some hcavv
fighting without decisive results and it is indicated
a'Auitro-German offensive impends.

The judge in sentencing the chief

for an arrested verdict, intimating that
the indictment was faulty and that the

It I also rumored -that not less than
300f). fbet) will ,b called to the colors,
and that the army i now assembling
the equipment necessary for such a
large body of men. Hpare equipment
of severe I regiments haa been called
in and the quartermaster dearrment
i now in a state of preparedness to
meet any sudden demands upon It.
Every draftee can be outfitted, from
his campaign hat to hia army shoe,
leggina, uniform, underwear, belt, hav
ersack, canteen and odds and ends, in
cluded. The message which Delegate Kuhio
received at Han Francisco tit before
he sailed for Honolulu announced that
Major General Carter, chief of th
bureau of militia affairs, had written
to the department commander with re
ference to a proposed enlargement of
the guard to 5000 men and calling it to
service for training, and for more men
for coast artillery service.
(leneral Carter is thoroughly familiar
with national guard affairs in Hawaii,
having' been department 'commander.
He understand every detail of it or
ganization and personnel, and hi let
ter was based on hi personal knowl
edge. Immediately following the re
ceipt of that letter, General Wisssr has
commenced the inspection of the guard
on the neighboring islands, to deter
mine the fitness of those organization
for service, and upon his return and
consequent report of his own impres
sions to Washington, which may be by
cable, and with the' authority which
naturally is vested in the department
commander, the call of the draft men,
it is "believed, will be made public.
Various departments of the militia
and selective draft have had their dut
ies advaqced to such a stage that they
urc prepared for certain mobilisation
duties - which will be imposed upon
them. The medical aide of the draft,
which has been of vast importance to
completing the work, will be called
into action' again immediately tho mo
bilization order is issued. While Fort
Shaffer may be largely used for mobil
ization purposes, it is said that Fort
Armstrong is also to be designated for
first conceut ration work, because of its
proximity to the quartermaster depart
ment storelioues ol Allen Htreet, and
the nearness of the United Htates im
migration station grounds and build
ings, which could be put to good use.

Islands could ktad itheiri draft, .paaeaoera, y

Restaurants and hotels, cafes and
delicatessens who fail to carry out to
the letter the rulings of the Food Ad
miniatration, are subject to trial by the
Food Administration and if their cases
are flagrant and without excuse their
supplies may be cut off both from the
retailer, through the wholesaler; or the
wholesaler direct, when the supplies
are bought in that manner, says a
despatch from the mainland.
New York City has established a
precedent upon which all the Htate Ail
ministrntnrs may act. In the presence
of (lovernor Charles B. Whitman, sixty
eight restaurant proprietors were ar
rnuged recently before Federal Food
Administrator, Arthur Williams on a
charge of violating the 'meatless day'
regulations of the I'liitcJ States Food
It was the first time that Mr. Wil
liams undertook to enforce drastic
measures against restaurant violators
and he did so before the. hearing was
over by ordering fifty-seven -of- the
defendants who admitted their guilt to
cjoso their places for one day being
j t,l following Tuesday. Those defend

prove their innocence were given the
alternative of doing so at an appoint
ed hearing. Mr. Williams informed all
such defendants that if they were prov
ed guilty upon trial, they would run
the risk of going out of business en
tirely, bees use he would recommend to
the 1'nitad Htate Food Administra
tion that tlteir supplies be shut off
through the wholesaler.
