SUMMARY OF DISPATCHER
(lormali losses in prisoners alone in the present drive liuinher more tlin ti
10,000.
, AuHtro-Huiignrinn reinforcements have lwen sent to at least two sectors of
the Western front.
British forces advance alxut two miles on both sides of the Komme. '
Victories of , yesterday are the forerunner of the taking of Hapanme and pa
trols have already entered its outskirts.
Along the Aisiie and Ailette the (Jermans have launched strong counters in
nn effort to check the French advance which proceeding further, will threaten
the (Jerinan lines at Chemin den Dames.
On some points of the northern front the British have reached points within
a thousand yards of the old Hindenburg line.
Forty-two German divisions have been employed in the engagement.
"VT EW YOHK. August 2(
man divisions have been very
40,000, including several hundred officers, and since August 21 they have lost to the Third and Fourth
I'.ritish armies 17,000. So critical is the situation of the enemy that he has been forced to call upon
Austria for aid and has received Austrian reinforcements as has been conclusively proved by their
capture as prisoners on both the Ailette and the W'oevre sectors. The advance ot the French has
alarmed the enemy into. heavy counters for it threatens to flank the German positions along the (.'hem
in des IXamcs heights upon which they have been preparing to make a stand.
A week of continuous Allied successes closed gloriously on Sat
urday when the I'ritish stormed fifteen important enemy strong
holds and put iiapanme virtually at their mercy through the capture
of the Ancre valley railway.
WINGS ARE REINFORCED
Notwithstanding strong German reinforcements on both wings
and attempts to launch counters at several points the Teutons were
everywhere beaten ofT and the Allies continued their victorious prog
ress all along the line from Arras to the Somme. The Germans are
being steadily driven back to the old Hindenburg line and at a num
ber of points the I'.ritish forces are within a thousand yards of the
position as then occupied.
Around I'.apaume the enemy is' keeping up its strongest efforts
against the I'.ritish. advance but the capture of Le Sars and Lebarque,
the latter two and a half miles southwest of Iiapanme and the former
further west, are the certain forerunner of the fall of I'.apaume. Three
mUes southwest of I'.apaume the VVarlencourt and Aucourt on the
ll.ipaunie-Albert road were taken. Patrols reported that they had
entered the outskirts of the city and that further north the British
advance and encircling movement had progressed until its outposts
had reached almost to Iiulleconrt, seven miles northeast of the
threatened salient.
ADVANCE ALONG SOMME
Along both sides of the Somme the lorces of General llaig over
came strong resistance and on the north side of the river his forces
reached the outskirts of Suzanne, two miles east of Dray while On
the south side of the river they had reached Cappy, almost the same
distance from l'.ray. These points on the south and Le Sars and
I.cbarqtie on the north, form the mouth ol a pocket extending to
ward Albert in which the I'.ritish hold large forces of the enemy and
threaten their capture. Pushing against this salient from the west
the llritish have taken heights and woods to the east of Albert and
have advanced as far as Constalmaison three and a half miles north
east of Albert and are bringing up artillery which will make the po
sitions of the enemy to the east and within the pocket untenable. The
advance along the Somme constitute important gains in the direc
tion of Peronne.
In the course of these advances the I'ritish took numbers of
prisoners, among whom were an officer and four enlisted men of the
Austrian artillery.
It is on the northern front that the I'.ritish have approached as
close to the old von Hindenburg line as a thousand yards. This line
seems to be strongly held.
llesides crossing the Albert Ilapaume road at several points they
progressed southward a' considerable distance with Cavalry forces
operating in advance of the infantry.
GENERAL MANGIN'S ADVANCE
I'.etween the ( )ise and the Ailette the Germans, heavily rein
forced, countered heavily and desperately. Their eudavor is to hold
hack ;it any cost the adv ance of General Mangin which is threatening
to outflank the line on the heights of Chemin des Dames from the
west and northwest, and menaces the entire front to the north and
south of the sector upon which he Is advancing.
RESISTANCE OVERCOME
, Fast of P.agneux, between the Ailette and the Aisne, and against
this strengthened resistance, the French continued their advance.
West of t'recy an Mont they repulsed a strong counter and took -MX)
prisoners among whom were a number of Austrians who admitted,
upon being questioned, that they had been members of Austrian
units brought in to reinforce the desperate Germans. These and
other prisoners told of their orders to hold back the French in the
face of any odds and at all hazzards.
Other Austrians are reported to have been captured in the
W'oevre sector where parts of th line are held by American forces.

Sao Francisco To

Line To the Orient
The Mitsubishi Goshi Kaishn, one of
the largost steamship lines operating
between C bina and Japan, has decided
tu install a float of freighters between
I the Orient and Han Francisco in the
near future, says the Chronicle of Aug

by Whiiiichi Ito, special representative
of the company, who arrived here re-
Ceritly.
I Ito came to Han Francisco to investi
gate the dock and cargo facilities of
this port and is now conferring with
the Harbor Commissioners regarding
the facilities that will be required by
his company.
The Mitsubishi Goshi Kaisha, nl
though confining its own fleet to the
short runs along the coast of Japan
and China, has sent numerous cargoes
across the Pacific during the last few
years in chartered vessels. Recently
its business of this kind has greatly
increased.

Mr. Sheba says that bis Invention is
strictly scientific, but refuses to dis
close the nature of the process by

He is now preparing to enter into
the sponge business on a large scule.

invention, but a big surplus of his
manufactured sponges might be sent
to the mainland markets.

No Particular Shortage of Ha
waiian Grown Grain Exists But
There Is a Brisk Demand
In view of the fact that there threat
ens to be a greater scarcity of rice in
Honolulu than for a long time hereto
fore, the news from the various islands,
nnd the rice growing districts of Ouhu,
is of more than usunt Interest. Just at
present there is an investigation under
way by the Japanese chamber of com
merce arid Food Administrator Child
regarding the charge that certain Jap
anese merchants have been profiteering
in rice, while others iive hoardc j it,
waiting for a raise an prices.
!?o far as the Hawaiian grown rice is
concerned it is stated that there is no
particular shortage, only a good de
mand. At this season the second an
nual rice erop is being set out by hand,
ns usual, and this work was completed in
the extensive rice fields of Kaliln, tiahii,
this past week, practically the last
putch beiug planted on Saturday. This
Kali hi land averages about sixteen bugs
to the acre.
Over in Kailuu and Kaneohe the sec.
ond crop has all been planted and is
showing up splendidly, although then
i has been more rain than usual and the
fields are rathur deep under water yet.
I his district is reckoned to he one ot
the best on the Isluud for roe "lowing.
On Kauai, where the bulk of the tiee
is grown for lla'.vaii, the second crop
has not been replanted us vet, for the
'most part, as shown by the to ws from
j the following districts there:
i Kice at Hanapcpe is being replanted.
All but twenty six acres of the 1 l.'i
acres planted will be replanted. Lies

bugs per ucre.
U'uimeu Valley has about tvveMv
five acres in race and about 10i.il bags
may be expected from the combi tied
crops of 101. ,1'uh On expects 11, )
bags of rice from .'100 acres in Ma mm.
This is a small crop due to poor vv.'ith

About lOf) acres at Kapaa is in rice,
and nbout seventy-five acres will be re

About 277 ueres of rice at Wiiilua
Of this only fifty five acres will be re
