of Soissons, jhf Germans brought many Trcsh troops into the battle
ali mi; the western side of the Aisne salient seslerday and used these
prodigally. At no point, however, was the Hun line advanced, while
at many points it was forced to recede in the fa;e of I'rench counter
The (ierman rush Paris-wards was tirst definitely brought to
a halt on Sunday night, the French defense along the Soissons
Chat tan Thierry line suddenly stiffening and refusing to give ground,
which it had been slowly doing before the (ierman hordes. The
(ierman thrusts were met with a stonewall defense, and this defense
strengthened as the attacks grew heavier with reinforcements until
a series of heavy battles developed alofvg this western Hank, with
the French uniformly successful and the ("lermans losing heavily
and without compensation.
I let ween the Ourcq and the Marne the I'rench drove forward
a number of counter attacks that threw the icrmans back. On the
southern end of this line, where the Germans had advanced west
of l 'hateau Thierry, the Huns strove tenaciously to hold their ground
;.ml improve their positions, sending wave after wave against the
Allies Fach attack was broken up. In this lighting the (ierman
lossi s were particularly heavy.
I liroughout yesterday the fighting along this line was general
and heavy, with the French holding everywhere and inflicting severe
punishment upon the enemy. The greatest violence was shown by
the (icrmans in their efforts north of the Ourc and along the entire
curve of their line as far as the Oise. On the north, where the line
curves to the west of Soissons, the Germans were checked as they
hail Keen elsewhere, their only gain being just north of the Ourcip
where they recaptured Faverolle. This is one of the lour points re
in cupied by the French on Sunday afternoon.
hi the Rheims side of the salient the Mritish and -French have
maintained the positions taken in the counters on Sunday.
Renter's desxatches, by way of London, report the most
hopeful situation Since the inauguration of the battle. During the
dav the enemy had gainejl no ground and while the situation is not
vet stable it is plain that the first momentum of the drive is ending.
The llerlin despatches state that the French have brought fresh
tunes into the battle but that even with these they arc unable to
huld their positions, the Germans making advances. The German
i ' iininunique adds :
"Hetvveen the Marne and Rheims the situation is unchanged
e made fresh progress southwest of Soissons and met and re
uiilsed French counters on both banks of the Ourci."

British Draw Bonds
Closer By Show of
Confidence and
Chivalrous Act
F.VV YORK. June 3 (Offi
cial) When the vessels of
(treat Britain and the United
States lined up together recently
in the expectation of meeting the
German fleet which was reported
to be about to come out from its
haven, the positions of honor
were given by the British to
American naval vessels, says
Rear-Admiral Albert Cleaves.
The courtesy and consideratipn
thus shown and the confidence in
the Americans which it implied ,
has served to draw tighter than
ever tho already close bonds' be
tween the officers and men ol this
bran?h kA the service olthe two ".i
irienasnips.;( ,:,,",,; -READY
The United States has a large,
number of first-class battleships
in European waters, Rear-Admi-ral
Gleaves says, and these were
preparing to go alongside of the
British vessels for an engagement
with the German fleet, a few days
ago. Word had reached the Bri
tish naval chiefs that enemy bat
tleships were about to come out'
upon the high seas. The British
promptly gave the' American
ships the post of honor. It was
a recognition that the ships of the
British navy had already bad the
opportunity to meet German
fleets and vessels and the naval
officers and men their chance to
win glory on the seas, while the
same opportunity had not come
to the United States.
But above this it was the im
plied confidence in the ships atjd
the men of the American navy
that won the hearts of American
officers and men alike. When the
(ierman fleet failed to come out
there was keen and deep disap
pointment among the Americans.
Despatches from Copenhagen
yesterday said that the German
fleet was assembling off Heligo
land. w. s. s.
