FIGHT WAY lTr TO SLOPE OF HILL 320 Trendies Between Thiau mont and Fleury Are Recaptured. BIG GIWS PREPARE FOR FRESH ATTACK British on Somme Front Find Kaiser's Forces Are Xow Stronger. to.vnoN, Aug. 3. Fleury has been eempletely reoccupled by the French Hoops In the course of their vigorous ounter offensive at Verdun. Attacked mutancou'ly from the northwest and x'utheart, the village wax doomed de pile the strong defences the Germans 1 a '1 organized. Resides this, the French took all the t-fticlies between Kleury and Thlaumont And in thr slope of Hill 320. At Clienols, where they lost ground Tuesday, they recaptured most of the territory to-day. so that practically all the Hermans had won by their revival of the assault on Verdun has been swept Tay. There Is evidence that the French sre not through, for their artillery con tlnues to pound away at sectors of the frur.l with a vigor which can spell only the preparation for further Infantry work. The prisoners captured on the right h.nk of the Mouse since August 1 now total I.T.'iO. not Including the wounded.

Intent on Improving their position west of Pozleres. the British shelled a Qer roan stronghold between that village and Thlepval. The fire was so effective the garrison fled, only to be caught aa It i-rossed the open ground by the Are from the British field suns. A little to the 1st of this the British gained a hit of ground north of Baxentln-Ie-Fetlt by a bombing attack. Th- Hermans kept up a barrage fire wast and southwest of l'oxlerea all day w tier man llrahlp. For the second time the presence of a rr type of Herman aeroplane 011 the western front Is noted.

Presumably a new model tu been evolved by the Oerman design n ns a result of their study of short omlngs of the earlier kinds. The lull In the fighting on the Somme front Is due solely to the fact that the Hermans have had time to recover from 'he staggering blows delivered against tficm In July, a correspondent at British army headquarters In France writes. "The enemy Is beginning to get back his wind," says this correspondent. "Our .'tacks Inflicted upon him very heavy ami In certain quarters quite unexpected lose... but he still Is able to nil the .ips In his ranks by bringing forward arse reenforcements, Including many hMvv guns, and put up a big barricade sxalnst us. "He also Is powerful enough to or tnlze and endeavor to push home counter attacks. While we hold and ronsolldate our gains, we take all neeea ry precautionary Hieasurss te Insure Us success fit further operations. "How long the present lull will last I do not know. The great preparations on the part of the Uermans demonstrate their anxiety, but they demonstrate aa U the need on our part to feel our way ith a prudent respect for the strength of the enemy." All the correspondents etnptitulie the Vast scale of the Allies' operations. One, "(erring to the French front, says tele rph and telephone lines are atrung rwhere. There are 12.J00 miles of Hl'Phone wire behind one twenty mile etlon of the front. The countryside Is Mmm with railways.

I. The allied cruisers patrolling the entrance to Hampton noads to prevent the depart ure of the German submarine merchant man Deutschland were In position within sight of shore to-day and there was nothing to Indicate they were aware of the passage of the Deutschland tut through the capes last night. Capt. Hlnech. who on bonrd the tug Thomas F. Tlmmlns directed the de parture of the Deutschland. said to-day that the underwater freighter passed unobserved within one hundred yards of a I'nlted States destroyer on neutrality duty about a mile oft the capes. He also disclosed that the submarine sub merged twice on her way down the bay to test her engines. "When no tralhc was In sight the Deutschland took a dive while running," said Capt. lllnach. "She went down until only four Inches of her periscope) was showing above the water. Then I dropped behind to see at what distance the wake of the Deutschland or the foam crest of the periscope could be seen. At 400 yards, with glasses, I could n -t sen a thing, "In the afternoon we started for the capes. The destroyer was passed In the dark. Later, when I reported that the Deutschland had cleared the enpee and was on her way to sea the ofllcers aboard the destroyer seemed surprised They bad not obsenert her at all. So you see that the British and French ciulsers off ahore hadn't the slightest chance of find ing the Deutschland." When the vesselH were a mile off the capes the submarine Increased her speed, and the men aboard the Tlmmlns, which had stopped, watched her as she sped for tliu open sea, A mile away all her lights suddenly disappeared. Capt. Ilinsch said he knew the vessel submerged at that time, when a mile Inside the three mile limit. In response to questions regarding the prospects of the Bremen, sister ship to the Deutschland. arriving In American waters, Capt. Hlnsch said: "you can depend upon It that If the Hremen was coming In the near future I would not be rrturntng to Baltimore and neither would the Tlmmlns." SEEING NEW YORK A NEW WAY.

A despatch to the Hanclelsbtad from Berlin aaya Italy has given notice to Germany of the termination of the Herman-Italian commercial treaty of 1801, which would have expired at the end of 1917.

Tliey will be compelled to ' take their matcilal on allotment, receiv ing no more than manufacturers can give them from vanishing supplies. That a famine In news print paper will result within a few months unless these econo mica are effected was the prediction of paper manufacturers yesterday. Only a husbanding of resources by the papers themselves, particularly those of New York, can stave off the crisis, It was admitted throughout the trade. There-Inn VfUfM tVAT IA1 fore the announcement printed In Tim!JO AiflrTif UCiAU lit SUN and other papers of limiting news dealers' supplies strictly to sates and the agreement of publishers of Manhattan to decrease the else of the papers met with approval. At the present time In the t'nited States ami Canada fifty mills ate work- Ing three shifts of men eight hours dally and six das a week. Their output for June the last compilation was 140,151 J tons, representing 95.4 per cent, of their 1 maximum production, the highest efll. rleticy ever attained in me industry This output represents an Increase of! .uuu tons h monin mrr inr omr ii .lune, 1915, but even this tremendous in crease has been Insufficient to feed the demand. Full production has had to be augumented by 5,000 tons niori a month, which was drawn trom a rapidly depict ing reserve stock. Surplus f.radnallr Shrinks. Surplus stock has been swallowed up at this rate for several months now. At tr end of June only 65,191 tons re mained In storehouses that at the same time last year held 91,97 tons. The minimum is In sight, appreciation of which fact brought the newspaper pub lishers to their agreement on Tuesday. ' . .. . . 1 1 I m Were production to cease to-day there is not cnoush news nrlnt DMDer stored to keen newspapers alive for ten days. It, has been necessary for the publishers' mutual good and the benefit of the news reading public to curb the tendency toward Increasing the stxe of papers at this time of year. The figures cited here for June wilt take n considerable advance In October, usually the banner month In the news paper jear. As a rule circulation In creases In the fall anil advertising keeps apace with It. As a result more pages have to be added to the dally paper and the Sunday takes on unusual bulk. Without the measuies taken by the publishers this fall's Increase would wipe out the total production and tha reserve stock. Fur this reason Till: Sun's rule to refus unsold copies will become ef fectlve on Monday. It may be asked by the public, "Why did not the. paper manufacturers antici pate this tremendous lucreae In de mand?" They did, so far as It was humanly possible to anticipate u pi as perity. Since June, 1915. there lias been added to the mills of this country and Canada 15 per cent, more facilities for turning wood Into paper. When tin orders were given It seemed, according to the manufacturers, uu extremely risky venture to InstslI additional machinery on conditions temporarily roseate. It J, ., " . 7 n V . . count for the greater call for paper, and a cessation of the vvur possibly would bring an end to the growing demands. Yet the machinery won Installed and now most of It Is In operation. Workliia nt Capacity. mills are ut the peak of their The capacity. They ran turn out no more, although they have the materials and the men. In June of 1!H5 the mniVnum of efficiency derived from the r..nt-hlnery was 78. S : this year it reached the mark of 95.4. With machinery making this n-tord, men operating the day around and ever.v .- ........ other aid given to production, still the I outlook for the fall falls to brighten. (ew mum cannot ue pui up in wceKH or even months; generally It takes a year and a half to get a mill working. New machines have been ordered ; In n few weeks several that turn out fifty tons a day will be In operation. Hut thce,e added to the machines now producing cannot save the situation at the present rate of consumption. Machinery cannot be ordered in wholesale lots at the pres. ent time with most of the big steel plants turning out munitions In preference to wood grinders.
