London1, Aug. 17. After taking
twinty-four hours to reorganize their
broken lines the Germans mado six
desperate counter attacks to-night
upon the trenches the llrltlsh took
from them northwest of Pozlcres on
the Somme front yesterday. The Brit
ish repulsed every one with big losses.
So exhausted were the Germans on the
Trench front that they ventured no
attempts to recover the ground from
the French.
A strong British attack northwest,of
IUntln-le-Pctlt. along lhi road to
Uapaumc, was successful. Tho Brit
tin captured about a hundred yards of
Herman trenches. ThU success brings
them nearer to the villages of Cour
crlrtte and Martlnpulch.
In the nituult yesterday tho llrltlsh

About the gains west of tho High wood

During tho day the Germans at

There Is a salient In the llrltlsh line here
hlch to-day's attacks west nf the High

out. Tho Australians turned their ma
chins guns on the advancing German
lines rnd. as the report tays, "nipped

On the French front In the Somme tn.

Entirely undisturbed by the UMial t'oun

of yesterday were, from a military view

"Never before havo the Germans

Instincts All Cardinals to Pray That Italy and Her Allies

Xotrlal Cable Dispatch to Tat Srx.
noif, Aug. 1". rope Benedict haa In
structed all the Cardinals In Italy to
pray for victory for Italy and her alllei.
Hitherto the Cardinals, following the
Pope's example, have been preaching- and
praying for peace at all their services,
they have exhorted all the faithful to at
tend tho functions of Intercession for an
early peace. Now, however, they will
pray for the defeat of the Teutonic Pow
ers. Cardinal Ferrari, Archbishop of Milan,
and other Cardinals holding; episcopal
sees have publicly explained that the
Catholic Church wants to see a lasting
pence. They are convinced now that no
peace can be lasting unless the war ends
victoriously for Italy and her allies.
They arc urging, therefore, that all loyal
citizen churchmen rhould Join In efforts
to win the war.

Italian antl-clerlcals here accused lh
Catholics of wanting a premature peace,
a peace at any price. Such a peace, they
say, would be to the advantage of the
Teutonic Powers.
It has been apparent for a lone: time
that Pope Hcnedlct was leaning toward
me cause or Italy and so toward that of
her allies. Soon after the war com

Word was received yesterday by the

that milk producers up tho State have

"do to the demands for agjilgher price.
Dairymen and farmers Insist that the

understood by the department that
action was taken at a recent meeting of
directors of the Dairymen's League at
Mlddletown. A committee was appointed
at this session to prepare a schedule
of Increased rateu to the distributers.
Commissioner John J. Dillon Issued
yesterday a statement In which ho said
that the plan proposed by his depart

Practical Plan.
Discussing tlm prcpnejl )ilin of his

' cltv. Commissioner Dillon f aid ;
i "The milk Investigation beln;
made
by t'.m WIckB leslshitlve comnilttee and
the siig?etioii that the mil It supply mUlit

has undoubtedly ludped cone-ciuraic in-
tentlon to the only practical plan pro -
pored to do Juftl'-e to tin- pioducero and
at the same time protect the cutome!
from on unwarranted Increase in prices.
"Although the depirtment lin. deli
iilKtv stated that It had no Idea of die-
Irlbutllig eNlstlng business, some or I'm
denier, feareil It would ine-lilin pnsem

' present conditions. Tint Is w lint the
detiartnient is inr, inn 11 in-i-n o-n u
Hub anv Ims'iiesii eiwraged In the ecu
nnmlc distribution of milk.
"The plan needs the dealer" for city
distribution, but it can be operated with
oiit them. The dealers, 011 tin1 other
linnd. need the milk, and they cannot get
along without It. They would be afraid
of a strike, pur nnd simple, because
they know that all farmers will not con
Mime for very long to spill mill; Into Hie
streets after" producing II. Such a plnn
would alienate the sympathy nf con
sumers, nnd. after a temporary disturb-
anre, work to the advantage of the
dealer.
"The people want their mill;. The in
terest nf the producer Is that Hie public
net Its milk and all It wnnts of It. Willi
abundance of milk In the city for sab' nt
a fair price, under State control, llm pen
pic nnd the State will llnd a way to dli
ti Unite it. If t lie dealers refuse, they
and not the farmers are tlie 'strikers'
und new- concerns will gladly take up
the work nf dlFtribulrr. A enulract
(ould probnbly bu made any dav with rc
iponsih concerns for dellveiles at n
much less price than the present cost of
distribution."
Mr. Dillon said be . satisfied tlie
farmers will get more for their milk on
October 1, Milk Is worth more to Hie
producers than they have been getting,
lie ndded. His department has iictu illy
sold milk for several cooperative dairy
association"! at from 20 crnls to to cents
n can above the dealera' schedule of
prices.
Tho Harden company lucre-mod ye
lerday the price of grade A milk from in
cents to II cents a quart, It nl.or.il. d
tlie price nf pint bottles of inlllt from .' tn
0 e-ents. Similar Increase. In bottled pints
were mule by many other milk com
panics several days ago. A number of
dlstilbutcrs have already raised thc price
of grade A quarts.
The llnrden concern explains, through
Its vice-president, H. N, Hiillnik, that
the diminishing margin of net profit per
quart nf milk hnndled by Its farm prod
nets division, which was lo.noid for tlie
year ending June 3i. led the manage,
ment to adjust prices of those products
which least affect the majority. Tho
company declnres It lias no Intention to
"make any Increase In the price of our
regular nine cent milk unless confronted
j by conditions not now existing."

Spoil ting Oil, Causing Tre

Gasolene will fall to 10 cents a gallon
within ten days or two weeks. Standard
Oil officials said yesterday. At the So
cony stations about town the gallon
rato was 13 cents, which reprcrcnted a j J

Although tho Middle West States were
nelllng garoleno yesterday for 17 Vj
cents, thero In llttlo likelihood of this
reduced llgurc striking New York before
a month. If nt all, experts said.
The explanation for this drop In motor
fuel Is ascribed to the extraordinary out
put of the crude oil wells that were
drilled last year and now are yielding.
As a conscquenco of their exceptional
output In the last few weeks the quota
tion on crude oil hn fatten and with It
gasolene, tho price of which is regulated
entirely by tho production of crude oil.
Standard Oil officials said tho full ef

prices then will havo reached their
minimum. New wells are being drilled,
but their yield will not be appreciable
In the market of tho near future.
It was denied at 2C Uroadway that the

Waihinqto.s-, Au-r. 17. President
Wilson to-day submitted his peace pro
posal to tho C40 delegates of tho rail
road brotherhoods assembled In the
East "loom of tho Whlto House.
The plan will be laid to-morrow be
fore more than n score of railway
presidents, who havo been summoned
to Washington by tho President.
t'pon the acceptance or rejection of
this plan, which is In the naturo of an
ultimatum, will depend whether th
threats of a strlko which will tlo up
the Internal transportation of tho en
tire country are to bo carried out.
Ilnvlng found the m inagcrs' com
mittee cold to hlti proposal that they
accept the eight hour elay, the Presi
dent appealed to the railroad presi
dents and asked them to eomo to the
Whlto House for a conference-.
There Is every Indication that If tlm
railroad presidents sustain their man
agers President Wilson will appeal
finally to tho financial powers which
control the roads, for It Is hbi purpose
to deal with tho ultimate authority bc
forejie gives up his effort.
Representatives of the employees of
the four brotherhoods have tint yet for
mally decided upon their reply tn tlm
President. After le-nving tho Whltn
House they held ;i meeting during
which for upward of an hour they ills
cussed tho proposal, arilving at no
conclusion.
Will Accept It To-dnj.
It Is all open si -ret, however, re
flected In the Jubilant demeanor of thn
members and leaders of the brother
