OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT MADE
Official announcement of the above was made yester
day here, in Tokio and in London, the Official Oazette
in the last named capital publishing a cablegram from
Tokio with the statement.;' ..This .plan is in accordance
with fhe recent proposal made to Japan by the United
States, the viul feature of the proposal being that etch would des

Ambassador Ishii conferred with Acting Secretary of State Polk
yesterday, formally discussing the matter for half an hour, at the
end of the conference handing to the acting secretary Japan's formal
acceptance of the American proposals.

'lctail of the plan and outlining the American attitude towards Kits

"In the judgement nf the govern
ment of the I'nited States, a judgement
arrived at after repeated and very
scorching considerations of the whole
situation, military intervention ln Rus
sia would be more likely to add to the
present sail confusion there than to
cure it add would injure Russia rather
than help her out of her distresses,"
said Acting Secretary PoJV.
"Such military Intervention as has
been most frequently proposed, even
supposing it to be efficacious in its im
mediate object of delivering an attack
upon Germany from the East, would
in its judgement be more likely to turn
out to be merely a method of making
use of Russia than to be a method of
icrving her. Her people, if they profit
ed by it all, could not profit by it in
time to deliver them from their pres
ent desperate difficulties and their sub
stance would meantime be used to
maintain foreign armies, not to recon
stitute their on or. to feed their own
men, women aud children.
Concentrate On West
"We ure bending all our energies
miw to the purpose, the resolute mid
confident purpose, of winning on "Ire
Western Front, and it would, in ti"
judgement of the government of the
I'nited States, be most unwise to di
lide or dissipate our -forces.
" As the government of the Uni.ed
Mates sees the present circumstu'ices
therefore, military action is udmivl
in Russia now only to render such. pro
tcction and help ,at is possible to the
('echo Slovaks against the armed Aus

nttneking them and to steady any pf
torts at self government or self-defenso
in which the Kussinus themselves ni"
l.e wilHug to accept assistance. heth
it from Vladivostok or from Murmansk
Act As Guards Only
"The only present object for which
American troops will be employed .'ill
lie to guard military stores which niv
subsequently be needed by Russian
forces and to render such aid as may
be acceptable to the Russians in the
in i;ii ii i znt ion of their own self defense.
With such objects in view the gov- ,
einment of the I'nited States is now
cooperating with the governments mfl
France and Great Britain in the neigli j
linrliood of Murmansk and .Archnngel.
"The government of the I'nited
States has therefore proposed to the '
government of .Japan that ii h of lh ' I

of Great Britain, France and Italy and

them in principle. No conclusion that
the government of the United States

Arrival of Americans Has Restor
ed Superiority of Allies At
Close of Fourth Year
LONDON', August 3 (Associated
Press.) The crisis of the war has pass
ed and the arrival of the American
forces has tided the Allies over the
most dangerous period, is the opinion
that is expressed by Oenersl Heig, the
British commanding general in a pub
lic message which he tins issued the
occasion of the fourth anniversary of
(lient Britain's entry into the war
which will be tomorrow.
Commenting on the situation which
now coufronts the British aud their Al
lies nnd co-belligerents General Haig
l said in part:
"The conclusion of the fourth year
of the war today marks the passing
of the period of most acute crisis. The
Kussian revolution, the chaos which
followed and the negotiations of a
IK'ace between the Bolchevist govern
ment and the Central Powers released
large hostile forces which the enemy
was enabled to transfer to the West
Front. The intention of the enemy
wus to vise great numbers and thus to
overwhelm the Allies and gain a de
cisive victory before the arrival of
American forces eould give superiority
of forces to the Allies.
"The enemy plans have completely
failed. The steady streams of Ameri
cans that have arrived in France have
restored the balance to the Allies and
the continuing arrivals wUl throw that
balance to ua snore preponderating.

CRISIS IS PASSED
SAYS GENERAL HI
. A.aiaia as A m m
PAIUS, August 4 ( AwNoeiatwl IM ess ) - The Soissons
Rheinis salient has leen practically winetl out and
the Germans cleared completely of the territory
south of the Vesle River, as far east of Soissons as Fistnen.
Between these points the entire southern 1 :t it k is held hy
the AIlieH, who also control all the fords.
Up until lute yesterday afternoon no attempt has heen
made to cross the river except by patrols, all the bridges
having been destroyed by the retreating (lei nians, who fell
back everywhere except at Fismes, on the Vesle, one of
their great bases. The approaches to this town were de
fended, hut the American column threw the defender
back, ought them from street to street in the ruined city
and .cleared them out completely.
From 'Soissons eastward, along the. railroad lines,
I'rencli cavalry is operating, cutting off German strag
glers, tfte cavalry also crossing the Vesle in a nuinlter of
places and hanging on to the rear of the still-fleeing Ger
mans. HOLDING NARROW STRIP
South of the Vesle the Germans are still holding a
strip some two miles wide just east of Fismes along the
Andre River, tapering off to a point at ( 'hampigny, on
the Vesle three miles east of Rheims. From the Vesle
east the Allied line runs in almost a straight line through
Courville, Riancourt, Courcelles and 'hanipigny. Along
thj line the Allies are advancing steadily, pushing the
Germans back upon and across the river.
The Allies' strength makes it seem certain now that the
Germans cannot hold any part of the Vesle line but must
continue their retreat to the Aixne, with every prosject.
that they will lie driven clear across this and to the hhxMl
oaked line of the Chemin det Dames, the scene of almost ceaseless
fighting for the past three years. This line is one of the strongest
tor defense along the entire Champagne front.
The German retreat since Thursday has been skilfully carried
out and their losses in men have been small in comparison to the
tremendous slaughter inflicted upon them earlier in the Ulied offen
sive. BURNING AS THEY GO
Kvidence that the German high command will not attempt to
hold the line they had prepared north of the Vesle is afforded in
the burning villages between the Vesle and the Aisne, the (iermans
)eing at work destroying ,what they have to abandon. Fourteen
large fires were counted yesterday. Another indication of continued
retreat is in the fact that the Germans have not yet brought any
of their artillery back into action. ' Their guns are being hurried
north to defend either the Aisne or the heights of Chemin de
PRISONERS AT SOISSONS
The French took many prisoners and inflicted heavy casualties
when they drove into and occupied Soissons on Friday. Against
the defenders of this city and of the ground southeast of it the French
brought numerous tanks into action, the machines driving through
and over the German lines and killing hundreds. An hour after
he (iermans had been driven out of the city the French troops were
in occupation and preparing the place for defense in the event of a
When the Allied advance was resumed yesterday morning it

he arc was eaten into by the victorious troops and the rapid ad
