America Will End War Only When
German intrigue Is Broken, Presi­
dent Says and Calls on Russia
to Help Conquer Com­
mon Enemy.
Washington, June 11. President
Wilson, in a communication to the new
government of Russia, has made plain
the war aims of the United States
and its position on "no annexation, no
"No territory must change hands
except for securing for those who in­
habit a fair chance of life and liberty,"
the communication says.
"No indemnities must be insisted on
except those that constitute payment
for manifest wrong done.
Future Peace of World Keynote.
"No readjustments of power must
be made, except such as will tend to
secure the future peace of the world
and the future welfare and happiness
of its people."
The President's communication in
full is:
"In view of the visit of the Ameri­
can commission to Russia to discuss
the bestft and most practical means of
co-operation between the two peoples
in carrying the present struggle for
freedom of all peoples to a successful
consummation, it seems opportune and
appropriate that I should state again,
In the light of this new partnership,
the objects the United States has had
in mind in entering the war.
Objects Much Beclouded.
"Those objects have been very much
beclouded in the past few weeks by
mistaken and misleading statements,
and the issues at stake are too mo­
mentous, too tremendous, too signifi­
cant for the whole human race to per­
mit any misinterpretations or misun­
derstandings, however slight, to re­
main uncorrected for a moment.
"The war has begun to go against
Germany, and in their desperate de­
sire to escape the inevitable, ultimate
defeat, those who are in authority in
Germany are using every possible in­
strumentality, are making use even
of the influence of groups and parties
among their own subjects to whom
they have never been just or fair or
even tolerant, to promote a propagan­
da on both sides of the sea which will
preserve for them their influence at
home and their power abroad, to the
undoing of the very men they are
America Fighting for Liberty.
"The position of America in this
war is so clearly avowed no man can
be excused for mistaking it. She seeks
no material profit or aggrandizement
of any kind. She is fighting for no
advantage or selfish object of her own,
but for the liberation of peoples every­
where from aggressions of autocratic
"The ruling classes in Germany
have begun of late to profess a like
liberality and justice of purpose, but
only to preserve the power they have
set up in Germany and the selfish ad­
vantages which they have wrongly
gained for themselves and their pri­
vate prospects of power all the way
from Berlin to Bagdad and beyond.
"Government after government has,
by their influence without an open
conquest of its territory, been linked
together in a net of intrigue directed
against nothing less than the peace
and liberty of the world.
"The meshes of that intrigue must
be broken, but cannot be broken un­
less wrongs already done are undone,
and adequate measures must be taken
by preventing it from ever again be­
ing rewoven or repaired.
"Of course, the imperial German
government and those whom it is
using for thslr own undoing are seek­
ing to obtain pledges the war will end
in the restoration of the status quo
German Imperialism Must Go.
"It was the status quo ante out of
which this iniquitous war Issued forth,
the power of the imperial German
government within, the empire and its
widespread domination and influence
outside of that empire. That status
must be altered in such fashion as to
prevent any such hideous thing from
ever happening again.
"We are fighting for the liberty, the
self-government and the undicated de­
velopment of all peoples, and every
feature of the settlement that con­
cludes this war must be conceived and
executed for that purpose.
"Wrongs must first be righted and
then adequate safeguards must be cre­
ated to prevent this being committed
again. We ought not to consider rem­
edies merely because they have a
pleasing and sonorous sound.
"Practical questions can be settled
only by practical means. Phrases will
not achieve the result. Effective read­
justments wilL and whatever readjust­
ments are neceseary must be made.
But they must follow a principle and
that principle is plain.
World's Future Peace Is Aim.

"And then the free peoples of

in the dealings of nations with
one another.
"The brotherhood of mankind
must no longer be a fair but empty

Pour Out Blood for Liberty.
"For these things we can afford to
pour out our blood and treasure. For
these are the things we have always
professed to desire, and unless we
pour out blood and treasure now and
succeed, we may never be able to
unite or show conquering force again
in the great cause of human liberty.
"The day has come to conquer or
submit. If the forces of autocracy can
divide us, they will overcome us if
we stand together, victory is certain
and the liberty which victory will se­
cure. We can afford to be generous,
but we cannot afford then or now to
be weak or omit any single guarantee
of justice and security."
Naval Secretary Forbids Officers,
Crews or Department Employes
From Discussing Activities.
Washington, June 11.—"The navy
department has reason to believe that
information of a character most valu­
able to the enemy, and which might
prove disastrous to the navy, has in
some way reached the enemy," Secre­
tary of the Navy Josephus Daniels
has announced.
This disclosure preceded the estab­
lishment of stringent regulations to
prevent persons in the navy from dis­
cussing naval and military matters
even with members of their own im
mediate families.
"In view of the strenuous efforts
that have been made to prevent the
dissemination of such information the
department believes that in practically
every instance this has resulted from
certain information being given in
confidence to or spoken in the pres­
ence of a close relative or friend who,
failing to appreciate the gravity of
the offense, inadvertently transmit­
ted it into the hands of those who
most desired to obtain it.
"The situation at this time is entire­
ly too grave to permit of a continu­
ance of present practice in this re­
"Officers, enlisted personnel and civ­
ilian employes are therefore directed
not to discuss any question relating
to the disposition, movements or pro­
posed movements of naval or military
forces (including personnel) at any
time, except officially, either among
themselves or with any person outside
the naval service. It should be clear­
ly understood that families and rela­
tives are to be considered as 'outside
the naval service.'
"All persons who attempt to obtain
prohibited information from persons
in the naval service should be regard­
ed with suspicion and reported with­
out delay to the proper authorities.
Daniels insisted that new regular
tions are not in any wav aimed at
American newspapers, though the or­
der had the effect of at least partially
closing usual legitimate news sources.
American Munitions Reach Gibraltar.
Washington, June 11. —The former
German steamship Clara Meniring, has
arrived in Gibraltar, en route to an
Italian port with a cargo of munitions
and general supplies. The Menning

ernment when war was declared on

With the British Armies in France.
June 7.—In one of the most elaborately

neuvers of the war Sir Douglas Haig's
forces have dealt a mighty blow
against the German line in Belgium,
and.been rewarded with notable gains
In terrain and the capture of more

The Germans, though apparently
aware that the blow was coming and
seemingly prepared to meet it, were
driven from their nearly three years'
hold on Messines ridge, opposite "poor
old" Ypres. Ypres in a sense was
avenged today, for Messines ridge has
been the vantage point from which the
Germans have poured torrents of shells
into the stricken city. The British also
wiped off an old score against the Ger­
mans, for they held the ridge in Octo­
ber, 1914, and with very thin forces,
and virtually no artillery, fought blood­
ily but vainly to hold it when the Prus­
sian troops massed their modern and
overpowering weapons of war against

Triumph for Artillery.
This fire reached its climax just
as dawn was graying the eastern skies
and while the full moon was still sus­
pended high in the heavens.
The attack was accompanied by all
the arts and deviltries of latter-day
war. The enemy guns and gun crews
had been bathed for days in gas shells
sent over by the long-range British
The night was filled with red in­
cendiary flames. Shells that spurted
lead in streams crashed in appalling
numbers about the heads of the de­
fending soldiers. High-explosive and
shrapnel fire was carried out with such
rapidity that the earth writhed under
the force of the attack.
Mines that had taken two years to
dig and fill with an overwhelming ex­
plosive broke into an avalanche of
flaming destruction in the half light of
dawn. This was indeed an Ypres day
of retaliation and victory for the
vicious sufferings of two years and
eight months.
Gunners Strip to Waist.
It was a day of intense heat, and the
gunners worked stripped to the waist.
The attack went forward with clock­
like regularity.
The British casualties were slight.
Three out of four of the casualties
were reported to be walking cases, who
would return to duty in a few days.
The attack began at dawn, and the
setting was as picturesque as can well
be imaginable. The day before had
been hot and sultry. Toward evening
there was a series of thunder storms
which extended well into the night, the
lightning mingling with the flashes of
the guns, but the thunder being virtu­
ally unnoticed amid the din of the can­
non. A full moon struggled continu­
ously to break through the heavy
clouds which scudded across the vel­
vety night sky.
Sing on Way to Fight.
On the way to the front were all the
familiar picture^ of the war—endless
trains of motor trucks all varieties
of horse transport, the British sol­
diers marching to battle light of heart
and singing songs familiar in every
American community.
In the shadow of an old windmill
which has withstood the storms of a
century and been undaunted by nearly
three years of war, the correspondent
witnessed the last phases of the seven
day preliminary bombardment and the
final outburst of the guns which sent
the British infantry confidently on
their way to new successes in fighting
the greatest military nation the world
has ever known.
From the German line the same
lazy, looping rocket signals were as­
cending to illuminate the treacherous
bit of ground between the trendies
known as No Man's Land. This night­
ly "straffing" had been going on so
long that the enemy considered it en­
tirely normal and took no alarm. Oc­
casionally blue and yellow rockets
vrould be flung into the air by Germans
holding the front line.
One by one the guns became silent.
There was the old "grandmother"
howitzer of enormous caliber, which
kept breaking the peace at five-min­
ute intervals, the shock of each suc­
ceeding explosion and the shriek of
the heavy shells being emphasized by
the silence which lay over all the sur­
rounding country.
Like Volcanoes in Eruption.
Day was scarcely l)Csaking when
from the dimly visible ridge a score
of fiery volcanoes seemed suddenly to
spring from the earth. The night had
been filled with strange noises and still
stranger sights, but these masses of
flame, leaping from the ground, had a
meaning all their own. They were the
spectacular outward and visible evi­
dences of more than a million pounds
of high explosives which had been
buried deep in mines below the ene
'ny's positions for months.
All the world appeared lurid and
horrible under the sinister glow. The
earth shook as If torn by a great seis­
mic disturbance. It was not a single
shock. The •oree of the explosion
actually set th^s earth rocking to and
fro, and under the influence of the
giant guns, which immediately began
to roar from far and near, the trem­
bling continued indefinitely. It waa
3:10 o'clock when this final terrific
bombardment began.
It has seemed that the battle of the
Somme attained the ultimate in the
close assembly of war weapons, but
thi§ sudden outpouring on Messines
ridge was beyond all calculation. The
lighter field guns far forward set up a
perfect curtain fire, under which the
assaulting troops trudged confidently
to their allotted goals. Farther back
the deep-throated heavies began to
pour out torrents of high explosive
shells on the German trenches and
communications, while still other guns
—enough to win any ordinary battle—,
confined themselves solely to the task
of deluging German guns and gunners
in baths of gas fired in shells of ev­
ery conceivable caliber.
The effect of this counter battery
work was not appreciated until later
in the day, when the infantry sent
back word that their progress had
not been hampered by the enemy ar­
tillery and that their casualties
amounted to virtually nothing.
Enemy Signals for Help.
Great black observation balloons
had stolen skyward during the din of
the newly begun battle. In the wood
back of the windmill spring birds,
awakened by the deafening clamor,
had begun to sing joyously. Like so
many children who have come into the
consciousness of being in the midst of
the war, these birds regarded the ap­
palling noise of the battle as a normal
condition of life.
The smoke of the giant mines ex­
ploded along the battle front mean­
time rose in great, curling plumes to­
ward the sky and was punctuated by
red signals for help from the stricken
Germans in the front and support
lines. Never was the air filled with
more frantic notices of danger. The
entire horizon glowed with red balls
of fire sent up by the nervous Ger­
More and more British airplanes be­
gan to make their appearance. One
flew over the lines, the flashes of the
guns being reflected brilliantly on its
highly glazed wings.
Under this appalling fire trudged for­
ward on the ten-mile front General
Plunder's army. At many places the
men found German troops utterly
dazed by the mine explosion and the
ordeal of the artillery fire.
First Taste of New Warfare.
Many of these troops had but recent­
ly come from Russia, where they had
spent IS months and knew nothing of
what actual warfare was like on the
western front. They had bolted at the
first mine explosion and had only been
gathered together in groups by their
noncommissioned officers when the
British appeared out of the smoke and
shells and made them prisoner.
They said they had been given to
understand by their officers that the
British always killed their prisoners.
It was really pitiful in some instances
to see the manner in which these pris­
oners cringed to their captors.
As a matter of fact, the British sol­
dier, when the fighting is done, is in­
clined almost too strongly to treat the
German prisoners as pals. Some of
the prisoners taken today had only
gone into the German lines last night
and had made their way forward un­
der a galling fire and had lost heavily.
But the troops already in the line were
calling for relief in such a manner that
their appeals could not be denied.
Failed to Time Attack.
In view of the fact that the attack
had been expected the German com­
manders were endeavoring to get their
best units actually into the fighting
front, but had underestimated when
the British would strike. The troops
in a strange line were utterly bewil­
dered when the attack began and fell
easy prey to the advancing British.
The Irish. New Zealanders and Aus­
tralians, who had been reheareed in
every detail of "the show," knew just
what to do from the moment the word
to advance was given.
The battle was far more visible dur­
ing the first uncertain moments than
later when the sun gradually burned
its way through the eastern banks of
clouds. By that time the smoke of ex­
ploding shells and the vapors from the
blinding barrage, which had been part
of the artillery duty, obscured the more
distant landscape to such an extent
that the roaring guns could not be seen
at all, although the firing was almost
at one's feet. The brilliantly leaping
shrapnel shells, breaking far above
ground, appeared through a thick mist
only as brief and brilliant electrjc
British Planes Rule Air.
For a month past, but especially
since June 1, the airplanes on this
front have been indefatigably at work
during every possible flying hour.
They had brought down nearly 50 ma­
chines in six days as a means of blind­
ing the enemy. Lately the Germans
have endeavored valiantly to obtain
airplane observations for their artil­
lery/ but their observing machines
have seldom been able to direct more
than one or two shots before the Brit­
ish fighting scouts had pounced upon
them and either sent them crashing to
the earth or had driven them to covei
at breakneck speed.
Today the British planes flew far
and long over the enemy's retreating
lines and were only challenged" by
some very bad-shooting anti-aircraft
batteries. All through the. day British
planes ruled the air. They co-operated
actively with the British artillery and
infantry in maintaining the success of
this brilliant episode in modern war(
