Enemy Has Only Precarious Hold
on Remaining Positions South of
Marne All Bridges Now Under
Allied Artillery Fire.
LONDON, July 17. American and French troops, counter
attacking on a four-mile front south of Dormans, have swept the
Germans back 3,000 yards (nearly two miles), bringing the enemy
bridges across the river under artillery fire, it was learned from
an authoritative source this afternoon.
Remaining German positions south of the river which
marked their further advance toward Paris in the new drive
have thus been reduced to n scant and precarious foothold.
The enemy yesterday advanced three miles south of the river
to Festigny (five miles east and south of Dormans). The Ger
mans' positions here are menaced by the French and American
counter-attack just to the westward.
Except in the Marne Valley the fighting on the Champagno
front was only fluctuating in character up to noon. The French
already have recaptured about half the territory they lost in the
initial rush, in some places rcoccupying their original front lines.
Despatches from the front estimate the German casualties at
100,000. The French and Americans have lost no guns and their
casualties are light. The German estimate of 13,000 prisoners is
said to be grossly exaggerated.

GERMAN ATTACKS BROKEN UP
Fresh German Troops Try to Regain Ground
Lost Yesterday, but Make Little Headway.
PARIS, July 17. "On the Marne front our troops of the second
line, and perhaps our general reserves, already are entering the action,"
says (he Temps to-day in reviewing the progress of the enemy offensive.
"Where our troops have assumed the offensive, to the north of l.a Cha-pclle-Monthodon,
wc have regained ground."
The Germans lasl night threw new forces Into the battle on the front
south of the Marne and attacked the Allied lines north of St. Agnan (re
taken ye.terda by the l-'rench), the War Office announced to-day. The
enemy succeeded in penetrating into Bourdonnerie. The battle is contin
uing in the woods immediately to the south of this point. Americans are
co-operating with the French in this sector.
(St. Agnan la nlno miles cast and south of Chateau-Thierry and
two miles ami n half south of tho Marne. l.a Chapollc-.Montliodon Is a
