advancing between Rheims and the positions held by the French
on the Aisne, were met with the heaviest machine gun fire they
have yet been called upon to face, i , : -RESISTANCE
Despite the increased resistance of the Huns, however, yester
day was another period of Allied advances and of German defeats.
The British made substantial gains of importance in their advance
towards Cambrai, taking the ground along a four-mile front between
Havrincourt and Pei2icre, southeast of Bapaume. driving the Ger

of that city. V,-
The British advance toward St. Qucntin continues, despite the
German desperation in defense, now being aided by heavy rains
and mud. I
Northeast of Peronne the eastward progress of the British is
persistent and the advance has now reached well to the cast of.
Roiscl, some seveif miles east of Peronne. Here, as further north,
the German lines which have been taken up just in advance of the
old Hindenburg. line, are strongly backed by artillery. Throughout
yesterday the Gcjman gunners shelled Roisel heavily. j
DRAWING IN ON ST. QUENTIN j
On the southern end of this front the British are now within
five miles of St. Qucntin. Yesterday morning British patrols en
tered the towns of Vermand and Verdelles, both northeast of the
North of Arras, along the Cambrai road, the llritish made a
formidable thrust yesterday, beating down the German defenses and
pushing their lines ahead in preparation for the main drive, upon'
the city. !
In Flanders the German artillery east of the Lys River is in ;
creasing in volume. ;
Along their entire front south of the Canal du Ford to the
junction of their line with the French and British advance yester-!
day was steady and every desperate effort of the Germans to hold
FRENCH CONTINUE ADVANCE
The French north of the Somine are advancing abreast of the
British. They are now close to the Hindenburg line west of Cam
brai, where the line runs some four miles west of the city, and are j
pressing forward close to Fort Liez, four miles north of LaFera.
At this latter point they have crossed the Crozati Canal, a branch of
the Sonime Canal system running north from the Oise. '
In the neighborhood of Lal'erc the French are striking in to
the north of the Forest of St. Gobain and threatening to cut the
German line and open the way for such further successes north of
this forest as to threaten the German hold upon the highly strategic (
position, the retention of which is essential for the defense of Laon
and the entire southern end of their present defense system.
MEET STOUT RESISTANCE
Between the Oise and the Aisne the army of General Manirin
is now practically back in all the old French positions of the spring.'
The Germans are offering heavy resistance to further attempts to 1
advance and are making some counter attacks. Northeast of Sois
sons, where Americans are brigaded with the French, the heaviest'
resistance of the enemy is bemg encountered. Two strong counters
were delivered by the Germans near Laffaux, which was thrown

Newly Elected President of China
Will Not Accept Unless
Factions Get Together
THIKKi. September 9 (Special to
Nippu .1 iji ) Though Hsu Shih Chang,
foiiucr premier of China, was elected
by the Peking parliament president of
the Chinese republic, it will be some
tune yet before be will assume his
duticb if he ever does.
Hhu. according to a Ptking des
patch received today, has declined to
accept the presidency pending uniflca
lion or tne country. Me appealed to
the people of China to set aside all
political differences for the country's
sake and unite iu order to put the
country on a (Inner foundation.
"I'uless the people are united fer
the country's welfare and hearty sup
port of the government." Hsu declar
ed in his statement. "I cau not but
decline the high honor bestowed upon
me by the parliament iu electing me
the president of the republic."
Jlsu's plea for a united couutry is
rearded as an answer, and at the
same time a warning, to the revolu
tiouaiy government in Canton for the
stand it took ugainst the Pekiug gov
ernment. Its leaders issueil an otti
rial declaration following Hsu's elec
tion and refused to recognire the elec
tion as legal on the ground that the Po
king government is an illegally con
stituted body and any election by it
must In; deemed null and void.
If the Southern government insists
ou maintaining its hostile attitude
against the North despite Hsu's plea
and warning, the inauguration of the
president elect will bv called off.
