Lyatest Successes Place French So Close to Roye That Fall of Town Is Believed to Be Inevitable Germans Trying to Hold the Lassigny - Oise Canaf. PARIS, Aug. 16. The French troops have made an impor tant advance on a front of two and one-half miles west of Roye, according to the War Office statement to-day. The French prog ress was in the region of. Villers-Ies-Roye, about two and one-hu!f miles west of Roye, St. Aurin and Armancourt. .-T-Th-Jennans ore giring way little by little north of the Arre. The French are progressing nd threatening to envelop the enemy at Roye and along the Oise. The Allied line half encircles Roye, where the strongest pressure is continuing. The French advance at Villers-les-Roye makes the fall of the town inevitable, it is believed by military men. Possession of Roye by French troops would make necessary a rectification of the Ger man lines and an enemy retreat to the Nesle-Noyon line would be probable. The Germans are clinging desperately to a range of hills east cl Kibccourt. They are also stubbornly defending the Lassigny-Oise Canal, the loss of which would entail the evacuation of Noyon. Cien. Humbert's army, now on the plateau south of Lassigny, dominates the whole southwestern corner of the battlefront. His trooj have worked their way lo wilhin less than a mile and a half of Lassigny and are now pushing down the southern slopes of the pjateau. The enemy's position, from Bray to Lassigny, is unfavorable. Hb railways are not available and transport is greatly congested. Chaulnes is under heavy British lire. BRITISH ENCIRCLING ALBERT FROM WEST, SOUTH AND NORTH; HINDENBURG S PLANS UPSET -- -- Haig's Troops So Close to Chaulnes That the Germans Cannot Use Town Lines of Transportation Under Fire.

It is said that the British are so close to Chaulnes that the enemy cannot use the town. Almost all the rail communications in the Peronns region have been rendered useless by the Allies. further slight enemy withdrawals from the Lys salient were an nounced in London to-day. The enemy has evacuated the village of Vieux Beniuln, south of Merris, and has retired between one and two miles on a front of nine miles. The above confirms n report sent from London yesterday after noon and nrlnted In tho final edition of The Evening World last nlgbt. The withdrawals on the western front by the Germans in the last few days, it is believed here, indicate that the enentv intends to abandon the offensive. It is said to be doubtful whether he will be able to resunu the offensive, since thirty-five divisions now are necessary between the Oise and the Ancre, of which fifteen are fromJhe reserves. There arc. now fthly sixteen fresh enemy divisions in rescue on the entire western IK Itr ah r at IR. 1 Vi! If 1
