The German retreat across th Maln'e wai forced, say t the of
ficial report from French headquarters last night, y the violence
of the attacks launched against their lines' south of the river' and
by the success with which the attacks aU along" the. German rijjht
fiahk' were being conducted, threatening to reach a point where the
German positions soulh of the river would become traps 'for the
greater part of the forces there.
AH day yesterday the Allies contmued to assault the Gerrrwn
tnea, both south of the Marne' and along the greater' part of both
sides of the salient. The heaviest pressure was maintained on thi
Marne-Aisne, front, wih the Franco-Americans' gaining ground con
sistently. On the Soissons' sector the French eten,ded their gains!
advancing southwest on a front from Monjagn di Pans the city;
of BelteiC From this point, south to the American positions north
west of Chateau Thierry, the advance was gen'eraV between noon
on Friday md nine 'o'clock yesterday morning he gains along a
twenty-mile froni averaging a mile in depth.
Desperately the Germans attempted to' hpld, rushing reserves
from the Crown Prince's Champagne army Into the battle to a
total estimated at a hundred thousand men,; This stiffening of
the German defense slowed down the progress of the Franco-American
advance, but failed to check it, the battle growing fiercer' as
the day progressed.
At noon yesterday the Franco-American line. was approximate
ly as follows; Starting at Fontenoy, on the Aisne West of Soissons,
the line swung to the southeast across the Soissons plateau to Belleu,
southeast oi Soissons, where it marks the extreme eastern limit of
the gains on the north and where the Allied guns now command
Mhe bridges to the north and east of Soissons. Froni Relleu the line'
turns south to Bcrzy, swinging east again to pass' east of Rozierft
and Buzancy. Passing well east of Vierzy, where' the 'Americans

and then south to the east of Chouy and Neuilly-St FroAt in the
Ourcq Valley. Here it swings again well to the east; through Sort
melans, Buire and the western edge of EtrepHly, which marks the
farthest gains of the Americans northwest of Chateau TKierry From
this point it circles west to the original position of the Americans
on the Marne southwest of Chateau Thierry.
When the Franco-Americans were pushing the-Germans all
along this line at noon, south of the Marne they were driving the
i iermans north. The Bois de Misy was taken with' a rush by the
f rr,c., who threw the Germans back to the river, while on the
opposite side of the salient the Americans Were attacking fiercely
at Fossoy, after a German offensive between Fossy knd Reiuny i'n
tlir big bend, had been smashed.
North of the Marne, on the. Rheims side of the salient the
I-.ench took Marfaux, midway between Rheims and the river' and
vlvanced west of Pourcy. breaking up the German defensive sys
tem along this front, while between Souain and Auberive an ad
vance of a thousand yards was scored.
By last night these gains had been added to, in desperate fight

Popular opinion here support the
decision of the government and it is
believed that the diplomatic council
has achieved an unexpected success.
No word confirming this important
despatch from Tokio, whirh has been
held up along the line by the govern
ment censors. since Thursday, has been
received from Washington or London,
but such lack of confirmation does not
discredit the despatch of the Nippu
Jijl. It is notorious that the eablea
from Tokio received in Honolulu which
deal with the important news of the
Orient almost Invariably reach here
twenty four to forty eiht hours ahead
of tbe same news by way of London
or New Tork.
In all probability the information of
nn agreement between Japan and the
United States for joint military action
in Siberia will be given oot at Wash
ington today or tomorrow.
The Advertiser has been confidently
expecting such new. for the past two
weeks,, private information received
leading to! the belief that such action
etas decided upon some time ago nnd
delayed only until the diplomats might
thresh oot the detail. It is believed
thai;. the expedition will b under the
command of General I-ona. Wood
aad that Honolulu will become very
shortly an important half way station
for a large American expedition, with
the possibility that troops now her
wilt become a portion of such expe
dition. -
