NEW YORK, September 2f( Associated Press) With the
Bulgarian army cut up into various groups along the one hundred
and thirty mile front from which it is being driven by the cease-
lens assaults of the Allies, its strength appears to have been broken;
and its utter destruction is serinnslv threatened

whose cavalry has now advanced to within ten miles of the second
line of communication which extends between Veles-Uskub-Prilep.
There are strong indications that this line of communication will
also be siezed soon and thf he predicament of the enemy made
yet more serious and its pligtn inextricable.
, The enemy is fighting hard and it seems to be a race for Uskub
between the Bulgar9, who would endeavor to make a stand there
and the Allies who are progressing along the V'ardar from (iievgeli
to Gradsko. At Velcs the Bulgars were twenty-five miles from L's

The Serbs, continuing their progress, crossed the Yardar to the
northwest of Gradsko and established their third bridgehead over
the river south of Knishoba. They are also advancing along the
Breguknitza River and have cut through the enemy main force clear
to Ishteb. Thus the Bulgar line

Along the whole line, estimated at 130 miles the enemy retreat

It was officially reported last night from London that a Uritish
invasion of Bulgaria was expected.
Italian troops have pressed north at great speed and have occu

They are cutting across Macedonia to join lines with the Serbs, liri

of a plan to
persuade all parties to conin to the
aid of the government in its grave
straits by a demons! ration that no sub
stnntial differences of principles exist
between tl,eu paities and the govern
me ut.
It is a so cioiKid-ered licie as another
move in the pence offensive.
Yesterday in the Reichstag von Payer
defended Ins Stuttgart speech in which
he declared that the treaties of Bu
( barest and Brest Litovsk must stand.
He suid it would he a mistake to
ubantloii those treaties as they reguditr(
the rHntinns of the obligntories.
In his Stuttgart speech von Pnyer
said that Germany, "as the innocent
and attacked party," hail a right to
demand indemnification. That as a pre
liminary to peace Germany and her
Allien must have all their possessions
restored to them, including the German
colonies ami that in return Germany
would evnciinte the occupied regions
nnd could give buck Belgium without
ineumberance ami without reserve.
Hand Off East
He asserted that Germany would not
submit to the entente powers for ap
proval or alteration of the peacy treaties
which Ccrmhny had signed with thi
1 kraine, Kusin and Koumunin,
Postponement of peace prosp"Ct ami
the likelihood of a fifth war winter
weigh equally ou nil belligerents, and
not on Germany ulone, he said.
Heir von Paver reminded his hearers
thnt after four years the war was till
being waged almost entiruly on enemy
territory. He ndmitted that the U boat
had in t worked as quicklv and as sure
ly ns had been hoped. He added that
it was useless to dispute whose was the
fault. The enemy, he said, was still
unable to compensate their losses by
new consTriicnon, ami ueciaren mar tnt!
rotiberv of neutral ships, almost with
out parallel, by the entente could not be I
repeated. i
TJ. 8. Limitations
"The more troops the ('nitc-d State '
sends the greater will be the need of
shipping for reinfarceinents of rrhini- J
tions nnd provisir ns, " Her von Payor
said. "The filling up of the enemy I
urinv by Americans, therefore bears in I
itself its limitations." )
He argued that the loss of shipping
would become fatal to Grent Britain
after the war hecnuse it would lose its
shipping superiority to the United
States and the "hope of compensating
themselves from the (ierinan fleet,
which still lins to be conquered, vv II
sipelv be adequate comfort only for
the very im.'iuiginative Britishers."
Liberated Rusia!
Russia, he thought, might have re
nnined in capable existence if she had
granted tolerable conditions to the en
sl'vel Russians by a federal constitu
t ion.
"She collapsed," the Vice Chancellor
"aid, "because she could not maintain
internal cohesion. Our victories and
those of on' allies now have given the
suhjecJs of thnt colossal cninire an op
portunity to liberate themselves.
"We cannot hand over Poland to
Russia," h" ii'bled, "nor can we assist
in hnviiiL' Finland ft'.'ilin ptacetl under
the Russian yoke. We cann it leave to
their fitte the border states which lie
on the Gernnii frontier nnd the Baltic
t be subjected ngninst their will to
Russian iinoe'ialism o thrown into the
penis of civil war n"d anarchy.
"In fact, those states have come to
an understanding with us. es thus' most
nearly interest!"', can unit be nn a Ivan
tn:'c to the world, and we i'nn never
ocrmit nuv one to meddle with ns in
this matter from the standpoint of the
present Furnpean bnliinee of power of
rather British predominance."
The vice i-ha "ccllor sa;d a requisite
understanding between Germany ami
Belgium was easier because their econ
oinic interests freqeuntly were parallel
and that Belgium was directlv depen
dent upon Cermuiiv as a hinterland. He
aid lie had no reason to doubt that the
Flemish question could be solved in lie
cordnnce with the dictates of justice
and wise statesmanship.
Accuses Belgians
"It is hypocrisy to represent Bel
giiim as the ii cent victim of o ir
policy," Heir von Paver suid, "and
to clothe her, as it wele, in the white
gaimeiit of innocence. The Belgian
t'ov era iiient and that is what mat

General von Wrisberg, addressing the

is reported as saving that the failure of
the German offensive on the west
front was due to th failure of the
German army to surprise the Kn
tente Allies, and the neeasaitv of the
Germans assuming the defensive on the
nrrivnl of the English home army, the
employment of colored troops anil the
intervention of American divisions.
Me said that the withdrawal from the
Marne was neeessnry for strategical
reasons and has been completely suc
cessful. He also said that the with
drawal on the Hindenhurg line was due

Flfcht With Italy
Prom Rome jjoines an ofticinl des
patch which said that German and
Magyar troops were defeated by a
''.echo Mov nl. unit iu a llerce battle on
the I'alinn front which was concluded
by a desperate attnek by the Czechs
with daggers. The valor shown by the
OV.echo-Hluv aks in that engagement
brought from Premier Orlando of Italy
the lollowing telegram of congratula
tions to the Czecho Slovak nationnt
conntil nt Paris. "I desire to cordial
ly cxpir's my admiration at the intre
pid Hi miiess and valor of the Czecho
slovak in the Alps ou the Dossoalto
front where, bravely, a people fighting
for its liberty conquered ail aggressive
fuiy fed by hate. May this be a good
on. en for the tlnul buttle and victory."
This in t on was the first iu Italy
w here the Ciecho Slov nk acted aa a
unit in its own formation. In the Tren
tino last Saturday the enemy launched
an attack prepared with the greatest
secieiy east of I like (iardu. Captured
des n;cbes show that the Germans aud
Mugvnrs had no delinite territorial ob
jectives und planned the stroke iu the
hope of gaining and supported by tba
Auitriaa claim that the Czechs would
. giv-
wav voluntarily when thev faced
nn at my ot the count iy that had held
t hem mi long in subjugntion. In Home
it is believed thut if the Austiians had
achieved local successes they would
have killed all the Czechs whom they
made prisoners us tiuitors and then
would have affirmed thnt the Czechs do
not wunt to tight against Austria.
