The British and French troops, which
are receiving reinforcement
meeting with some iccess, snd be?
sides repulsing ths Bulgarian attacha
have undertaken small offensive nieve?
monta with good resulta. The Austro*
Germans arid Bulgarian?, however,
made such progress from the begin?
ning of the campaign that it will taka
serious work now to check them.
In view of the pr?sent political situ?
ation in Greece, the attitude of King
Constantin? to the protest which the
Central Powers have repeated on the
landing of Allied troop? at Sal?nica is
being followed lure with the keenest
King Constantino is reported to have
replied to the representations of the
Teuton ministers that as Sal?nica was
an open port there had been no in?
fringement of Greek lights in the
landing, and that Greece would remain
neutral until one of the belligerent?
had transgressed against those right?.
An Athens dispatch to "The Times"
says that it now seems certain the
Greek government has confirmed the
attitude which it will adopt if the Al?
lied troops should be forced out <>f
Serbian territory across the Greek
frontier. The Entente powers have
been eaourod that Greece has no in?
tention of departing from her Rttitttdc

these declarations as adequate.

We had walked through Ablain, St.

?nhile the roar of the guns pounding

Poor Ablain was taken house by house.
What was left of it was a few sections
of walls standing shoulder high.
Ahead of us was Souehet, the scene of
more house to house lighting, and its
late was ?till worse than that of
Ablain. It was levelled to the ground.
Not. even a section of the walls was
standing. We came t<-> former German
trenches now occupied by happy
Frenchmen, and climbed through deep,
soft mud to what had been the quar?

wai now th? home of a French captain
and two lieutenants.
There we lived deep underground.

If they had been able to hold that
salient, the work of the French would
have boon minimised. The German of
kcpt their men at their work
with the mighty effort <>f despair. In
the fit -? days of the battle one lone
Frenchman had ?urged into the Ger?
man trenches at Res Cinq Chemin?,
and when his comrades joined him
three days later he told a graphic story
of German soldierR weeping and beg?
ging to be allowed to surrender, whilo
the officers with drawn revolvers drove
th"m into the fight.
That was the last point to bt taken.
With the fall of Res Cinq Chemins the
Germans lo.?t their last footing on the
Artois hills and wore over the Crete ?le
Vimy, on the edge of the Plain of Douai.
The French lines now run from Giv?
enchy to Ana?, along the western
slope of Crete de Vimy, While the Ger?
man lines, bidden from the French by
the crest of the hill, are on the eastern
slope. \
Givenchy and Arra? are th? two
anchors of the French lines. Arras is
firmly held, with the French lines n?ar
lv two kilometres to the east. The
Preach and German lines 'ouch in Giv?
enchy. On its eastern side Givenchy
projects beyond the Crete de Vimy and
debouches on to the Plain of ln.ua .
The French came down from Notre
llame de Roretie. and turned the Ger?
mans out of Ablain, came from Mont
St. Eloi and turned them out of Caten*
cy, seized La Targette by a frontal
attack and, in a great pitched battle
along the whole western face of the
Crete de Vimy, threw the Germans
clear back over the crest and sent them
flying across the Plain of Douai.
But instead of that great cost in
blood, the French big guns pound
iteadliy night and day at the German
lines and hold ;he German soldiers
close ir, their trenches, while steadily,
night and day, yard by yard, the French
seize Givenchy, and, in the simple
words of an officer of th? French ("en?
crai Staff, 'When wo get Givoachy the
Germans will have to go away. And
they cannot stop on the Plain of Douai.
They will have to go much farther."

credited the "Giornale <1'Italia" with

from the ruler of one of the belligerent
nations was in Rome. His mission, it
was added, had not been accomplished,
ami it was not known whether he was
awaiting a reply from the Vatican or
order? from his chief.
