London, July 31.
The Chronicle publishes an Interxlew
with tho Swedish Socialist leader, Hjal
mar Brantlng, xvho has been in London
a few das, after paving a visit to the
front ln France Asked for his general
Impressions, Mr Brantlng said-
"I never made a better, more striking
or more encouraging Journey. Before
leaving Sweden I was sure the Entente
countries would nexer surrender to the
Ludendorff policy, and now haxlng been
face to face with the realities. I am con
xlnced Hurope will be won for democ
racy. "Yesterday there were in some quar
ters resigned men and women They had
suffered much, and we can understand
such a spirit, after four vears of war,
but today resignation had been changed
to hope
' The United States ha3 taken the
place of Russia Russia brought troops
only, but the New World has brought
troops, food, material and mono And
1 myjt say the American troops are
splendid
"Have jou also.met Swedish-American
soldiers?
'Oh ves and the Swedes fight with
the same determination They did not
come over in order to obtain material
things or gain terrltorj They flght to
finish the war, and they pursuo their
aim with an honest and earnest mind
They are resolved to see the business
through, and are proud to risk their
lives for a cause which they Identify
w Ith that of humanity "
"What was jour Impression of the
American army? '
"The Americans are distinguished by
a spirit of organization We in old Eu
rope are gentrallv complicated When
we are traveling we haxe hundreds of
papers to submit to tho authorities, hun
dreds of minutes to lose in a hundred
different xvays Our administrate
poxvers haxe not alwas understood even
after four years of war the necessity of
simplicity and co-ordination There is
nothing of this about the Yankees
'Then for Instance, they have chosen
a type of airplane, and they chose the
best They work In series and produce
ten times more than xxe do Generally
they possess, ln one word the spirit of
efficiency I am under tho Impression
that the Germans now know something
of American Initiative. Do ou recollect
how they mocked at American Interven
tion In the beginning? I am sure the
German people are of a different opinion
now."

t-opvrloht, i$ts, t,u ,vio Vorfc rimes Co.
London, July 111.
There Is only one possible explana
tion of the Gciman tctreat "according
to plan," and that Is thnt the defense
has been worn down by steady prog
ress of the attack.
As I have nltcady explained, there
was nothing In the hhnpe of the Ger
man salient or In the character nf the
ground which the enemy occupied to
iiiiiKo it peculiarly diniuult for him to
hold the line of the Ourcq until his
internal Commnnlrntlnna brut been nf.
ganlzed. Foch's counter-attntk was
de Iveied nn the western flank of the
salient, mid thnt flunk, fiom Solssons
.IS far HOUth ns tho flnrrft nnnr nnl.
chy-le Chateau, hnd been holding well
since me nrst tlavs of tho Allied nd
xance, while on the other flank, be
tween Rhelms nnd tho Maine, our
pi ogress hns not been such ns to en
danger the tetrent of the troops on
tho southern front. Therefore, there
hns never been nny question of these
troops being pinched out and of tho
Allies making by aurh means large
captures of prisoners nnd guns.
This southern front linn been ln the
greatest difficulties owing to ho
breakdown of the German communi
cations Inside tho salient, and the Al
lied pressure upon them has been too
Incessant to, allow tho exhausted
tioops to bo letloved nnd a now line
of defense to be formed. The Ger
mans required time to enable them
to settle down on the lino of the Ourcq
through rere-'fcn Tntdenols, and they
could not gain the netessaiy time.
Failure Hue to Americans
Among tho causes of this fnlluro I
should place very high the effect of
the dash nnd energy of the American
troops All the other armies now
fighting nrp more or less wai-vvcniy,
and they all contain a high proportion
of Ilnds and of middle-aged men.
Thercfoie, the nppeaiance of a new
in my In the field, xxlth its eagerness
and enthuslnsm unimpalied and com
posed of the pick of the manhood ot
a great nation, must bo out of all pro
portion to Its numerical strength. It
xxould be absurd to suppose that an-
thing like the million and a quarter ot
Americans who had been shipped fiom
the United States haxe taken part In
this battle or anywhere on the front.
Tho mllltarv power of America Is
only Just beginning to make itself felt,
and tho most hopeful nn encouraging
feature of this battle Is that thnt be
ginning hns been so effective, for It
Ins not been the danger of the Allies
drixlng In the flanks ot tho salient
xxhlch has caused the Germans to
withdraw, as tho danger of tho Ger
man progress on our flanks at Cam
brnl nnd in the second battle of "Vpres
caused us to withdraw, but the defeat
of the enemy on the southern front
bv the Trenth-American torces op
posed to them.
In fact the German ictreat has
been caused bv direct pressure and
has not been carried out In order to
avoid the contingent danger.
I nm Inclined to think thnt it Is
doubtful whether the enemv has yet
got a complete defensive lino cither
on the Vesle or on the Alsne, and it
looks ns If ho' were still tring hard
to gain time for there would be no
point In sacrificing men ln a counter
attack if he had made up his mind ns
to how far he Intended to withdraw
and had all his nirangements for wltn
diawal ready.
Itattle Conditions Favor Allies
In fact the battle Is continuing under
conditions which are very unfavorable to
the enemy, and It still seems to me
premature to prophesy as to how and
when It will end
The Franco-American advance at
Fere-en-Tardenols and across the Ourcq
has had the effect of turning the front
between Solssons and the Ourcq and It
has. In consequence, begun to crumble
The Butte-de-Chalmon, a big hill
dominating Oulchy-le-Chateau and Nan
toull, which hns formed the buttress of
the western face of the salient, has fallen
Into our hands, and It is clear from the
presence of Scotch troops at Buzanny
that Foch is taking advantage of the
Allied progress In the south to re-enforce
his attack on the Koissons irom, aim so.

tlefield, the delajlng power of machine
guns Is very great. It Is, therefore, not
at all likely that we shalt be lble to
cut off any considerable part of tho Ger

In no way detract from' tho completeness
of the Allied victory.
Can't Alter German Defeat
If the enemy had hcen able to strike
elsewhere nnd gain some conspicuous
Biiccess before his retreat he might per
fectly well nrgue that he had changed
his plans owing to altered clicumstnnces,
nnd had decided tn employ his troops
where they could be used more effec
tively, but no nrgument wlirnovv alter
the fact that the second battle of tho
Marno has ended llko the first in com
plete German defeat
"We must, however, keep in mind that
what we have achieved so far Is to pre
vent tho enemy from obtaining the de
cisive results which the German general
staff and their friends at home confi
dently believed to be within their giasp
This is no small m later, but It is In Its
essence a measure of defenne, nnd hns,
fnr example, as one or its ehicr results
removed th danger to Tarls
But we arc still left with a long xvay
to go before xvo can obtain a satisfac
tory decision in our favor, and the sit
uation calls for an Incieaso rather than
a slackening of our efforts, so that xxe
may be ablo to shorten the war by tak
ing every possible advantage of the suc
cesses we have gained
There has been a very natural ten
dency to exaggerate the effect of Foch's
bolt from the blue, and there Is little
dnubht that these exaggerations have
been used for their own purpose bv
ngilators ln fomenting the rtrlko vhich
h is so happily collapsed
The enemy nro quite certain to trv tn
follow up theirp ractlce In the past of
bringing the sears campaign to an end
with some show of success, which will
carry their people through the period
of winter gloom nnd Inactivity. We must
keep our eves skinned If wo arc not
again to be caught out as we have
been arptlme-
