At the same time General llaig forced a further retirement in the l.vs sector and further south, on the Arras sector, he forced another i et ireinent. Wednesday saw the launching of a British at tack on a ri'vv front of ten miles from the An ere Kiv'er to just north of Moyenville, taking consid erable tetrain and a large number of prisoners be sides gutis, munitions and supplies. Northwest of Soissmis tbe French under General Humbert scored gains of considerable importance and in the vicinitv of Hray the . Mlies made other progress. Thursday marked one of the most important gains of the week, the taking of Albert, the key stone of the German defenses to the north of the Soiume and high ground east of there was taken which resulted ultimately, .on Saturday in the fall of lirav. htfom Lassignv, on the southwestern curve of, the battle front. GeneraT Humbert had driven a vM'cfe 1 set ween the artuies of the crown prince and tin ItoeVim w hile northwest of Soissons (ieneral Mangin swept the foe back tw the edge of the i-'orest of St. (iobain, an advance that indi cated a thinking of ovon and l.aon.

( )l steadily growing importance is the Siberian front llere the plans have been extended so as to contemplate an earlv advance as far west as Lake P.aikal and the Japanese ( onimander has had his powers extended -o a to make him command er in chief of the entire expedition. 'In the en counters thus far the tide is against the liolsheviki and their allies, immer Aiist ro ierinan prisoners. The extension of plans has greatly pleased the ('echo-Slovaks. The news that the two govern ments which these force have established are in complete accord is also very reassuring American troops in this theater have been sent to the .M uichurian border with French and Jap anese and will speedily see some fighting.

The I'nited States has entered upon this undertaking on a scale and with preconceived programs and' policies such as the world has never known be-I 'fore and is going steadily forward with prepara lion for the delivery of the finishing blow.

Reaping the Whirlwind WHF.N' one considers the crimes, the attroei ties, the barbarities and the nameless bru talities that have been committed by the land and the sea forces of Germany against the Allies and their peoples a recognition comes that the nature, the instincts and the characteristics that have tolerated, permitted, .'oimtenanced and encourag ed such courses are such that, once aroused, they pass bevond control. They are bound to react against the nation itself, against the people at home, and such is the fact. A recognition of this is even now beginning to seep into the slow Ger man mind. War has caused an increase of crime and de pravity among the German people, according to an analysis published by the Berlin Vorw'aerts. The paper recalls that at the beginning of the war, prophets spoke of a "steel bath" ir the waters of w hich the morals of the German people would re cuperate. "Since August 4. 1914," says the Yorwaerts. "we ltave allowed the blessings of this bath to act on us with steadily increasing vigor and the re sult is a moral condition of health of the German people of which the compilations of criminal sta tistics give convincing reports. These tell us of the steadily increasing number of crimes of bru tality, and serious crimes against property and a glance at any newspaper confirms the horribly in creasing number of robberies and burglaries in tht cities and as well as in rural districts. Sys tematically organized and methodically operating bands of robbers menace continually life and prop erty of 'respectable' citizens. "Also honesty of the latter has suffered a per ceptible "crack" and here the influence of the steel bath s directly proved. We do not fear that at present there probably are few German subjects left who have not in some more or less serious manner . iolated the existing government decrees and laws and made themselves liable to punish ment." The Yorwaerts. then cites the instances of the citizen, who on Sundays goe to the country to buy food for hoarding purposes, of the proud wife of the owner of a large estate, whose chickens "lay" eggs only for a mark apiece, of the wife of the first lieutenant who sells the food articles received from her husband at the front at fancy prices and the army of usurers, secret traders and forgers. The Yorwaerts then dwells on the effects of the steel bath on the growing generation and cites complaints by the clergy and teachers to show that depravity i one of its results. The paper calls attention to what it describes a the "fruits of the best education as shown dur ing the Kadek Heriistnrff libel case." It adds: "When refined cavaliers of the most prominent society apply the most common names to each other and box each other's ears, then no one has the right to claim for one certain class, decency and well behavior. "The steel bath exerts its effects on everyone and splashes over the home of the proletariat as well as over the playroom in the family of the count." concludes the Berlin publication. f'mps, on a charge of emhcr.r.lement.

S. Keep Up Production TIIM decision which must shortly be reached as to the price to be established for sugar during the coming year is of momentous import ance not only to the sugar industry itself, but to the welfare of the nation as a whole. Kvidence steadily accumulates that the production, of sugar in the I'nited States will continue to decline un less a wholesale price is set that will cov er 'the rapid increase in costs of production and stimu late the industry to overcome the many other diffi culties by which it is faced. The labor shortage, the lack of fertilizer, and the aggressive campaign being waged to extend other crops which are less severely restricted in the matter of price, as well as the mounting cost of materials and labor, are handicaps against which the domestic sugar in dustry must contend. 1'ndcr existing conditions, with the sugar ra tion limited to less than halt the normal rate of consumption, no argument is necessary to prove the importance of maintaining the home produc tion ol sugar. It would be a poor service to con sumers lo throttle the progress of American sugar production and to decrease still further the avail able supply jn order to effect a possible saving winch at the most can amount to onlv a few cents a year m the case of each individual. It is safe to say that every consumer would prefer a situation m which he could obtain three or four pounds of sugar at twelve cents a pound to one in which he was limited to two pounds at nine cents - Facts About Sugar.

(Advertisement; SHOVED DRAFTEE TROUBLE RESULTS MUCH TARO BEING Sergeant At Shafter Reprimand ed, But Charge of Maltreat ment Is Not Sustained PLANTED THIS YEAR Maltreatment of a Japanese draftee af Honnmu, Hawaii, now a member of J the First Hawaiian Regiment at Fort j Hhafter, ia complained of in the Japa ; nese newspapers, which allege that . Sergeant S. Onaki of Company D, ex 1 reeded his authority, but an invextiga- j tion held by Colonel W. R. Riley, com tnaader of the regiment, developed that there wns no assault, but n simple case of ejection of the draftee from the company kitchen. Inasmuch as the case aroused so much interest, and the publication of the matter in the Japanese press caused eonaldernhle adverse coih'inent to jbC made in the Japanese colony, an in vestigatinn followed, resulting in the reprimand of Ozaki by the battalion commander. It developed however, that there wns nn maltreatment and nn brutality, such as was intimated nor did the sergeant exhibit any qualities which would serve to cause his demotion. On the other hand, it was found that the sergeant was in the exen ise of his dutv in or dering the ninn from the kitcfien, hut possibly did exceed his powers when he caused the Hnnouin drnftee to move along faster by shnvhig him. The shoving did not stop until the drnftee found himself outside of the kitchen. Higaki is the drnftee from the Big Island.

As soon as Colonel Riley's attention wns directed to the incident he caused the inv est igntinu to be held, and savs that he wns informed there was no astaiilt whatever and the publicity given the matter was unwarranted. Sergeant O.aki is declared by the lending officers of the regiment to be an able man, and was one of the first of the young Japanese in Honolulu to join the Japanese compnny when it was enlisted in the Hnwaiinn National Guard last year. He was also a mem ber of the Second Reserve Officers' Training Camp at Schofield Barracks, but did not qualify for appointment ns a commissioned officer. In reporta received here from variou sections of Oahu it ia stated, that thero is more tarn being planted thia year than at any one time for n long period.

In trying to draw the lines clear they were pulled up so taut the horse was forced back over the biidge with the buggy and its occupants. .
