DRIVE IN FRANCE 4 Chancellor Warns Com mons of Hurricane to Follow Present Lull AUSTRIAN DRIVE FAILS Iondon, June 19, Andrew Bonar Law, Chancellor ot the Exchequer, In his speech In tha House of Commons, predicted that th present lull on the western front It only the lull preceding a hurricane. But lie said he has the greatest con fidence In the morale and courage 6f the Allied and American troops and' their readiness to meet whatever comes, notwithstanding alt they, have suffered and endured. Bonar Law Introduced a vote of credit for 500,000,000 ($2,500,000,000) in the House of Commons today, gave some figures regarding tho total wat credits, which with the present appro priation would amount to 7,342,000,000 ($36,710,000,000) and announced that he would postpone until today his state men on national expenditure. He then proceeded to give a review of the gen eral situation. "The latest phase of this great strug gle," he said, "la the Austrian offen sive In Italy. It Is part of an Intense offensive which has been carried on along the whole baltlefront. Oiir enemies are right In thinking, that a great success gained on that front would have 'far-reaching, perhaps de cisive, results on the" general battle front In France. For that reason the general suspicion that the Initiative came from Berlin rather 'than from. Vienna I believe to be Justified. "The offensive was launched by a very large number of Austrian divi sions. A good deal more than half their total force on that front Is en- -gaged In the uttack. All I can say to day Is that after three days ot flghtlns the attack has failed. Objectives Are Not Attained "Our advices from Italian headquar ters are that the enemy has not se cured ,ln three days the objectives which lie hod hoped to obtnln the first day. And It also Is true to say that no offensive ,nn this scale-through-out the whole war has at Its initiation secured so little success. Speaking of the western front, Mr. I.avv Raid British and French head quarters knew the positions to which the German divisions were being sent before the commencement of the offen sive, on March 21. He admitted that the attack had attained an amount ot success which had caused the utmost anxiety. "But," he added, "tr.ree.months have passed, nnd although the battle Is a continuous one, we can look back upon what has happened with some confidence. "In this whole campaign the Ger mans have had before them three great objectives. One was Paris: another was the Channel ports; the third was not only the defeat. If they could achieve It, of the Allied army, but the breaking of the communica tions between the British and French forces. Although the Allies have had to give much ground, not one of the enemy's strategic objects has been at tained, c The Chancellor classed the battle-of Stv Quentln and the first battle of the Lys as great German "successes, while the battle of Arras was one la which the British were entirely victorious. The same was true of the second phase of the battle of the I.ys. Regarding that part of the line held by the French, he said the first attack was a great victory for the Germans, but that later an Immense attack was started which entirely failed In its object, "The offensive of March 21," he con tinued, "has brought about unity of command, which results have Justified. The long-continued battle must be question of reserves. The great source of Allied reserves is America, and It is undoubtedly part of the German scheme to use up the Allied reserves before they cun be reinforced from America. But in this they have not succeeded.

"'Thanks to the prompt and cordial co-operation of the President of the United States, arrangements which have been set on foot for the transpor tation und brigading of American troops will make It impossible for the enemy to gain victory by wearing out the Allied reserves before he has ex hausted his own." The references to America were loudly cheered. Mr.' Bonar Law also wished It were possible to attract the general notice of the country and tabulate In some way the vvork of the air service.- Th?re was no branch of British effort In the war pf which the people had greater reason to be proud. It had played throughout a magnificent part, not only in assisting the British troops, but in helping Italy, and especially the French In their long struggle.
