The object of the operation In progress on the Italian front is to recover the Austrian terri - tory won by Italy and to Induce the Italians, by a turning movement which fias struck the headwaters ot the Natl sone Valley to let go the hold on their positions on the left bank of the mid- die and lower Isonzo. The stampede of the Impressionable Italians by a rough and tumble attack to which they arc unaccustomed also Is designed to Impress opinion In Italy and cause distensions In the Interior. It must be remembered that the pacifist parties never have ceased their an tagonism to the national cause. Our business Is to help Italy in every way to react against exaggerated pessimism and want of nerve. The main danger came first from the German army, which, marching probably through the Ploecken Pass, overthrew the Fourth Army Corps and other elements of ths Second Italian -Vrmy and cap- fitre In neeesftton T a n Punorettn nfld the adjacent hill positions, then obtained a grip on the Natlsone Valley and by a coup de main against Monte Matsjur, tne most commanding heigni on tni sec tion of the frontier, succeeded In domi nating this region. I'nt OIT llnre Before. The German army relied upon the pre.vtlgo It still retains In Italy and the Impetuous rush overcame both the de fences and the spirit of the Italian de fenders In lhl qu.ii ter What happened often happens when a tangled maze of hills Is penetrated by nn Invasion of this kind. Many bodies of troops were cut off and time did not allow the with drawal of the heavy guns carried to a giddy height and placed In position on the mountain crests. The e-ame thing happened In May, 1916, with the same results, but the Ital ians then teoovered their spirit and re. trleved their reverses, nnd so wo hope they will do again. To the hold, Impetu ous assault of the enemy we must give heed, but Gen. Count Cadorna. the Ital ian commander In chief, will not allow himself to be intimidated.

Over a nlxty-flvs mile front, from Ploecken Pass, In the north, to tho Adriatic in the south, the Italians have been thrown back by the tremendous Austro-German dr've, their losses continuing to pllo up and their retreat growing more disastrous every hour. According to Berlin, this retreat at many places has been turned Into a rout. The whole Italian position Is menaced and the situation ot Gen. Cadorna's forces Is critical. From tho Isonzo Gen. Cadorna Is falling back toward the Tag- a'"e'. yielding In the course ot a few days operations ground captured only ! af,,'r months of toll and at a tremendous cost in lives. His front still seems far from secure and there Is no attempt to disguise the fact that tho extent of ths disaster Is growing.

To-day's official statement from Ilnmo gives every Indication that the dis mayed force of Gen. Cadorna, In splto of the fact that they are confronted bv an enemy quadruple their number, have rallied gallantly and are lighting, partly on their own roll, to check the Teuton flood.
