. . 1 ' . i NOT ALL IRELAND SEEKSmSHIRK SERVICE IN WAR Unionists Declare Their Wil- lingness to Be Drafted. -" Are Beady to Tight for Free , Institutions. SO SAYS SIB EDWARD CARSON In Address to Wilson Replying to Nationalist Appeal. ' Nationalists Had Sent Message to President of U. S. London, Aug:. 12. An address to President "Wilson intended as a reply ' to -the message sent to him by the Dublin Mansion bouse anti-conscription conference early in July has been presented to the American embassy. The address is signed by Sir Edward Carson, head of the war aims com mittee and leader of the Irish unionist party, the lord mayor of Belfast, the president of the Belfast chamber of commerce and the heads -of the va rious Ulster organizations. "At a time when all the free de mocarcies of the world have accepted the burden oNconscripUen as the only alternative-to the destruction of free institutions and international justice," the address says, "it is easily intelli gible that those who maintain Ire land's right to solitary and privileged exemption from the same obligation, should betray their consciousness that tin apology is required to enable then to escape condemnation at the bar of civilized and especially American opinion." - . All Ireland Not Rebellious. The address goes on to say it is im portant that the president and the American people be assured that the document is very far from represent ing the unanimous opinion ol Irish men. The minority in Ireland, com prising from one-fourth to one-third of the population, it declares, dissents emphatically from the views of John XHllon, chairman of the Nationalist party, and his associates and has a keen sense of shame that their coun try has not submitted to equality of sacrifice. -'The message ends with an egpressioh" cf regret that the National ists refuse to Jay aside domestic dis putes to put forth the full strength of the country against Germany. ? Nationalists Sought Exemption. A dispatch from Dublin under date of July 3 said that the Mansion house antL-eonscription conference had given out the text of its message sent to President Wilson thru Ambassador Page In London. The document re counted many grievances of the con ferees concerning alleged British mis goverriment in Ireland. It asked sympathetic Judgment from the United Sfates at a time when Great Britain, tltey declared, threatend to crush .the Irish ceoDle unless they consented to as blood tax against the protests of their representatives. The document emphasized that up until the year 1900 the privilege of free citizens to bear arms in self de fense had always been refused to the Irish.

Roofs Gone, Only Farts of Walls Left Standing. ANCIENT CHURCH WRECKED Town Had Been Battle Gage Only Since Mareh. France Pays in Men, Money and Ruined Cities. BY LWEUL MELETT. With the French Armies in the Field, Aug. .12 (12:40 a, m.. The line last night showed progress be tween the Oise and Mats rivers. Little Switzerland as this is sometimes called becoming untenable for the enemy. Progress toward Ribercourt is threatening the Germans' fcold on Noyon. The French are within a mils and a half of Roye. Against strong resistance the French have captured Montigny wood, EHncourt and Antheval. Montdidier Mass of Ruins. Trees felled across roads and paths choked with abandoned German ma terial are contributing toward slowing up the French advance. They also prevented two American correspond ents from advancing beyond Montdid ier yesterday. We were the first Americans to reach the newly deliv ered city, if the mass of ruins can be called a city. Montdidier has been a battle gage only since March and we h'bped to find it only partly devastated. Approaching gingerly along a road which the seventy-fives had pitted and pecked and which busy crews of In do Chinese had restored sufficiently to enable free passage of (automobiles, our first View from the nearest hill made it seem as tho it were the same city, sitting proudly upon a butt. When we reached Mesnil, the near est suburb we began to see what look ed like buildings, but were only wrecks. Of the ancient church of St. Pierre only, a battered tower and enough of- the facade to form a point ed arch asove the doprway, were left. Mesnil forecast trie condition of Montdidier. Mesnil apparently was composed chiefly of houses built on a wooden frame work, with plastered walls and tiled roofs. Only the frames remained, shining in the sunlight with a ghastly appearance, like the car casses of horses on an Arizona desert. In Montdidier the first building we recognized was the railway station. We only recognized it because the wall bearing the name happened to be left standing. We rode down the main street past the hotel do ville in American lingo, the town hall. Xothing remains except ruins and more ruins, many of which bear.Ger mnn signs. Across the main street are .-ai'.ccessive stri. s of matted camou flage. Five months ago, Montdidier was . BAD MEDICINE! Copyright. 1918. International News Berries. one of the prettiest of French towns. Today its condition reveals how France is contributing " not only men and money to the war, bnt wLole citiei--and coolly facing the cost. ; ENEMY FIGHTS i (Confirmed .mm Pare Oae.l Noyon, the French continue to press on for good gains. . - Heavy counter attacks are being made by the Germans against the Britten front from east of Morlaneourt to the vicinity of Lihons, west .4 of Chaulnes. Field Marshal Haig's men apparently have made little progress in the' past' twenty-four hours, - but tlteir pressure has not slackened.. - French Threaten Noyon. On the southern end of the battle field the French have carried out- an average advance of two miles on " a front of about 13 miles and threaten seriously the German Jiold on Roye, Lassigny and Noyon. Here also th German resistance is growing stiff er. - Apparently the German command is determined for the moment to ma?ke the allies fight hard for further gams. Meanwhile; however, ,he retirement from the southern end of the. front continues and the Germans' attempt to stand may be only for the purpose of preventing the complete rout of General von Hutier army, which Re treated from the Montdidier salient early Saturday. Aviators report heavy movements of troops and transport toward the eaet. German attacks have been strong and repeated around Lihons. The enemy forced his way Into the western side of the village, but later was driv en out. The British positions were maintained after hard fighting. Seem ingly the German purpose here is to protect their junction at Chaulnes. thru which all the troops from the Xtoje region must pass. However, the railroad is at no point more than three miles from the allied line from north west of - Chaulnes to southwest of Roye, the most important section of the line from a German standpoint. By striving to hold the British the Germans also protect the . pocket which was beginning to grow unsafe, between the 8omme and Arras. All the railroad lines leading out of Roye are now 'within easy cannon range of allied guns and French troops are at Andechy, three miles to the west and within less than four miles from the southwest where they have, crossed the last barrier of hilts. Lassigny, between. Roye and Noyon, :s within two and one-half miles of the French on the west and south. It is an important position south of the Noyon. The French-are fighting; their way up the Oise and are within five miles of the town. , Noyon a Vital Point. Noyon is important not only in its relations to the present battle line, but to the German position eastward ' to ward Rheims, and the enemy is fight ing desperately to stay the French ad vance -toward It. The fall of Noyon undoubtedly would compel a rear rangement of the enemy line eastward. Unofficially, the allies have taken 40,000 prisoners and 700 guns. Since the beginning of the German offensive on the Marne, four weeks ago today; the enemy has lost nearly 75,000 pris oners and over 1,200 guns. Berlin reports the fighting as grow ing more bitter and says that Sunday all allied efforts failed. One' German newspaper calls the present battle the first. 6eoous defeat of the wary-i ( Deiweeo ui8sons ana nneiTBB, Germans are apparently prepared t hold fast and the French and Ameri cans art making no attacks in force. The German artillery fire has been much heavier. Enemy., preparatinnc for an attack Sunday were stopped by American artillery fire. The firs.

Lenin-and Trotsky, rulers of Rus sia since last November according to German sources, have fled from Mos cow to the naval base of Kronstadt, near Petrograd. There is no con firmation from other sources. Fearing a reign of terror by the Social revo lutionists, the. German ambassador at Moscow is fleeing to Pskov, within the German lines in Esthonia.
