creasing fury. Similar riot hava been,

ustion in its own hands and resisted
the police and soldiers desperately.

police are still guarding the street
"f the ancient capital of Japan.
Police Used Sabre
The situation In Nagoya was a cri
tical as that of Kyoto. When the dis
turbances were resumed this morning
by the mob the police were given orders
to used their saber. Many of the riot
ers were wounded.
Newpaper OflUca Burned
In Kobe the disturbances were more
furious. The mob which formed in
one section of the city marched to the
tutaines center ami before the police
could check them a warehouse, belong
ing to MuxultL, one' of the largest rice
establishment, in Japan, was set afire
by the angered mob.
The mob then marched through the
streets to the. offices of the Kobe Hhin
bun, a newspaper which supported the
rice brokers. Torches were applied to
the newspaper establishment, and it
burned down quickly.
Down With Profiteer
"Down with the rice profietcers" is
today a common cry among the Jap

shi, Hiroshima, Okayama, Takamatsu
and from a doren other large cities.

Germany's efforts to frighten other
enemies from arising nii'iust her arc
being persistently carried on by Teu
ton propagandists in these countries, as
is shown by it huge reproduction of a
forty two cent iinctcr hlicll taken from
a I'nited Stales Shipping Hourd vessel
ill Honolulu.
This picture of t lie huge shell' which
came into the possession of .1. (). pet
erson ot the Matron Navigation Com
pany, is on a sheet of paper ubout the
size of an ei'lit sheet poster. It is
fully four feet Ion;; and twenty-four
inches wide.
The picture is inscribed in Knglish
and Spanish with a list of the fort
lied posts demolished by the big (!rr
man guns on the Hclinn frontier, us if
u direct meiiuce to other neutral conn
tries in case of defiant c to Germany. At
the top of the picture of the, shell tluire
is the boastful caption, "German War
Sui prise;, ot 1 it 1 S ' and its Spanish
equivalent. Iteneatli the picture is the
familiar Teuton blasphemy: ''With God
for Kaisc ami Kathei laud. "
Printed by Thousands
This picture, it Is now known, was
printyd by the thiuisands for circula
tion in Spain, Italy, Portugal and the
South American count rios, where the
boast could be read in Spanish, and also
for cautious circulation in counttic
wbern the Knglisli version could be un
derstood. The copy of the picture of
the huge shell reached thu shipping
board boat from it South American
source. It is being retained by the
shipping board crew merely as it souv
enir of the war, says Peterson to whom
it was given so its blatnncy could be
'exposed in Honolulu.
In keeping with this same type of
German propaganda, especially in
ish speaking coiintriex, is u circular, re
eently distributed in Spain, win- h .i.-,
serfs that seventy three euthedruls ar I
churches have been destroyed or ninde

British Held North of Somme To Local Giios But Allies
On Southern End Advance To Positions That
Threaten Germao Line As Far North As Chaulnes
Official Toll of Prisoners Taken
LONDON, August 14 (Associated Press) -Yesterday brought
much h;inl fighting for the Hritish and Americans along the
northern end of the I'icardy front, but few gains. The (iermans,
having materially strengthened their lines, are putting up a desper
ate resistance from the Sommc north and between the south bank
of the Somme and Koye.
On the southern end of the line, however, the French made very
important gains, advancing to positions between the Matz and the
Oise Rivers that make further gains almost a certainty and give
promise that t he objectives on this section of the front will be" reach
ed. These arc Lassigny and Noyons, the capture of which will prob
ably force the evacuation of the entire Noyon-Koye-Chaulnes line
and force a general withdrawal to the old llindenburg line, from
which the (icrman offensive was launched last March.
The battlcline in the north and the center remains practically
unchanged since Monday.
" official'statement"ofpris5ners
An official statement of the number of prisoners and guns taken
on the Montdidier-Amicns section by the liritish Fourth Army and
the French First Army since Thursday shows the numbers be
lower than the unofficial estimates heretofore made. The official
figures are: Prisoners taken, twenty-eight thousand; guns captur
ed, six hundred.
The Echo de Paris yesterday published the claim that the pris-
oners taken during the past three weeks number seventy thousand,
the guns one thousand and the machine guns ten thousand flThese
figures are for the Marne and Amien fronts combined.
V'esterday Hritish airmen fought more than fifty air battles,
downing thirty enemy machines. Extensive raids were carried out
ind the railroad stations at Cambrai and Peronne were heavily bom
barded. Twelve British machines failed to return to their bases.'
The Allies launched a general renewal of their attack yesterday morning
along a twenty-mile front, from C'baalnes south to the Oise, their first assault
resulting in vital gain by the French in the key sector of the outhern line,
around Lasaigny. At this section of the front, by the afternoon, the Frearh j
had won the entire," Massif -Lassigny line, the southern end of the Picardy
front, their new line giving them command of the town of Lassigny and the v
vmlier of the Divett end placing them in v position t "dominate the entire I,,',
district north as far as Roye. ' '" ,' 5 f' . v ?'-. 1
The French advance had been swung around te the south of Lassigny, '
and the village of 1'Ecouvlllon rsptured after desperate light.' Thl village i '
virtually on the crest of the ridge overlooking the Oise, to retain which the ' ..'
Germans used every ounce of resistance possible. The French wer not to be
held back, however, and they swept up to and over the crest. ,
North of Lassigny the Germans were reported abandoning their trenches
in the bend of the Avre at Baluy, toward which point the French were
driving between Lassigny, two miles to the south, and Roye, eight mile to
the northwest.
On their part of the front, the British made local gain during the early
part of the day, meeting heavy resistance.- Along th north bank of the Somme ' .
in the Bray section and south of the Homme in the neighborhood of Roye some
substantial progress was early recorded, while German counter jst Foqueacourt
were held and repulsed. -.
Aviator scouts brought word to the French and British headquarter dur
ing the morning that the Germans were destroying all the village in their rear
and were evidently preparing for another wide retreat. Peronne ia reported
to be in smoking ruin and there are fires at various point.
Thirty-three German divisions have so far been identified in the recent
fighting, a total of practically half a million men. The German commander 1
shifting his men from place to place along the defensive front to plug th
gap being driven into his line by the Allies, this shifting of unit indicating
that the German reserve are being exhausted.
Allied airmen are pressing the enemy at all vulnerable points behind bis
front lines and keeping the air clear of enemy machine. .
Man Who Saw Kamehameha
Dies A t Hundred Sixteen
After spending 11(1 summers in the
Kona district Jvfantiniu, an Hawaiian
who has always appeared to be old,
died on Angust ft at Keokea, Kona, says
the Hilo Tribune. The old man was
taken suddenly and was ill for no
length of time.
That Mauumu could lay claim to
the ripe old age of lift years is the
belief of men and women who have
known him for the past fifty years.
These Hawaiian declare that when
they were little children he was a
very old man and their parents used
to tell them that "Uncle" Mannmu
was at that time known to be at least
seventy. At any rate, nobody in Kau
doubts that V a nu inn was lift at the
time of his death.
The old men could rot be prevailed
upon to tslk much, but when he did,
he spoke piio. iislly of things that
hippeneil when he was just about at
tniniug manhood. He remembered the
reiun of Kamehameha and the first
missionaries who rsme to this island.
