Wholesale Arrests of Alleged Slackers in New York Stirs Senate. AGENT TO CONTINUE HUNT DeWoody Declares He Followed Instructions From Those Higher Up. I Fly Associated Prer" 1 WASMIN'JTOX, September 5.? Prcs- 1 ident Wilson has asked Attorney-Gener- j al Gregory for a complete report of the circumstances surrounding the "slack-! or round-up" in New York <"ity this ' week, jn which upwards of 40,000 men were taken into custody by agents of the Department, of Justice, the -Military Intelligence Bureau and soldiers and sailors on suspicion that they were in- , tending to evade the selective service j law. The President's purpose in calling for a report from the Attorney-'lenctaI : was not made Known. His request was transmitted after the matter had , been vigorously debated to-day in tiie 1 Senate, and Senator Smoot, of Utah, ( had offered a resolution proposing an investigation by the Senate Military j Committee to establish who Issued or ders for the use of soldiera and sailors in the round-up. Objection by .Sena tor Kirby, of Arkansas, Democrat, caused the resolution to go over, but Senator Smoot plans to call it up again M onday. The round-ups were conducted under the direction of Federal district attor neys. who u n'|uest ionably acted under] guidance from Washington. At the of-j lice of Provost-Marshal-General Crow-] der to-day it was said that the arrests j were made without, authority from or \ knowledge of that office. It was re-I Carded as possible, however, that rep- I resentatives of the office in New York] had assisted in the work. No word was forthcoming from the War and Navy Departments as to who issued orders for soldiers and sailors to par ticipate. Reports from New York to-night were that the slacker hunt will i n:? tinue. as originally planned, despite ? ?riticism in the Senate to-day of the extensive round-up, according to t'harles F. DeWoody. of tho Depart ment of Justice, who declared in a statement to-night that the drive had I been started on direct orders from At torney-General Gregory and A. Bruce! Blelaskt. chief of the Bureau of In- \ \ e-ligation. "1 issued a circular on August 29. stating that I would undertake this : round-up of slackers In New York un der the direction of the Attorney-Gen-' eral of the United States and the chief of the Bureau of Investigation." he: continued. "What I said on August "9. 1 surely will stand by on September | q. "When we planned, this drive, we 1 it - ! tended to carry it on three days. Thin Is our third day jtnd wo are going through our program as originally, planned. Whether we will continue j further than to-night, I am not pre- j pared to say." In conclusion. Mr. DeWoody asserted that he had been "within the law in every instruction I have given to the' agents of my department. Ilaids car- ? r!ed to-day in the financial distri -t re sulted in the arrest of many more al leged slackers, and although exact tic - ures were not available, it was csti- ; mated that nearly 70.00" suspects had ? been rounded up since the crusade be- j iran. No official estimate was made of the number of actual delinquents ?nught. but it is believed fro-n II.'miO to 1.000 men have been inducted :nto t military service, or held for prosecu tion.

I Bv Associated Press. 1 WASHINGTON. September 5.?Al though the Senate to-day adopted a resolution authorizing the President to establish "dry" zones around coal mines* shipyards, munition and other war plants, it again failed to reach a final vut? on the emergency agricultural ap propriation bill with its rider provid ing for national prohibition from July 1, 1919, until the nation's huge army is mustered out after the war. The resolution for prohibition zones about war plants was a part of the j prohibition "rider." It was adopted : separately, however, upon representa- | nun that the prohibition bill might be .lelayed and that the President should ! an given the power to create the pro- | posed zones immediately. Offered by | i* nut or Kellogg, of Minnesota, the sep- j ?irate resolution was approved without I .t roll call and after scant debate. Later an effort was made by Represen :ative .Miller, of .Minnesota, to hurry the resolution before the House, but Rep resentative Dent, of Alabama, objected, and it went over. I-ong discussion of the "slacker round-up" at New York and of the Federal Trade Commission and its re port on profiteering occupied most of the Senate's time to-day and prevented a vole, despite attempts of prohibition champions to hasten disposal of the measure, which has been before the Senate since last May. Prohibition leaders said that action of the Senate in separately adopting :he zone legislation would not inter fere with or embarrass the prohibition ?< tion of the bill.

IS Occupation of Chinta Practically Fnds Peril in Which Czcch Sol diers Found Themselves. NOW IN CONTROL OF RAUjKOAD Colony of German and Anstrian War Prisoners Along Amur lirunch Are Practically Isolated, and Subject to Attack. WASHINGTON', September 5.?Chita, the capital of Trans-Baikalla, and the stronghold of the Bolsheviki in Siberia, has been captured by Czecho-Slovak forces, the Statu Department waB in formed to-day. Occupation of the ' city practically ends the peril in which Czech soldiers, east of Lake Baikal, found themselves through the possibility that their solo communication with the forces of the allies?the Manchurian branch of the Trans-Siberian Railroad?would be severed by the enemy. They now control the railroad from Irkutsk to Harbin, and telegraphic communication between lrkuta and Pe king. via I'en/.a, has been restored. Meantime the Bolshevik forces, com posed largely of one-time German and Austrian war prisoners, are in a pre carious position along the Amur branch of the Trans-Siberia Road. The Czech victory isolated them and renders them open to attack from either the west or the east. They now are engaged with Japanesean-Czech forces on Die Usirria front, and occupation of Chita gives the Czechs there a free hand to move against them. It is only a question of a. few weeks, it is believed, before they will be compelled to surrender. Winter will soon set in: they are cut off from any supplies, and if they de cide to fall back, they will be in the vast and unproductive wastes of North- , ern Siberia, where frigid weather and ! lack of food will be their greatest ene- j mies. The Bolshevik reign of terror in Pel-' rograd, which culminated In the death of Captain Crombie, British naval at-j tacho at the embassy there, nlso includ ed the arrest and imprisonment of numerous other British officials In both .Mn?cow and Petrograd, the message said. The Americans leaving Russia, ac-1 cording to the. dispatch, were forty-1 five Y. M. C.

MARK PROGRESS NEAR PERONNE Teutons Violently Bombard Frapelle^ in Lorraine, Held l>y Per shing's Forces. [By Associated Fre.'s.l The French and Americans are fast driving the Germans out of their posi tions in Southern Picardy and in the sector between the Vesle and Aisne Rivers. So rapid has been the progress of the allies?the French in Picardy and the Americans and French Troth Solssons eastward toward Rheims, that the retirement of the enemy has the appearance of the beginning almost o? a rout. <"r*r Meanwhile Field Marshal Haig, In the north, from I'cronne to Ypres, has been almost as busily engaged ' Wtt1? his troops in carrying out successful maneuvers which arc only tn a slightly less degree of rapidity, forcing tha Germans everywhere to give ground, tlaig's men again have made the Ger mans taste bitter defeat on numerous Hectors, and the end of the punishment for them seems not yet in sight. In the latest lighting In the region extending from the old Noyon sector to Solssons, the French have reclaimed thirty villages from the Germans; have crossed the Sotnme Canal at several potnLs and are standing only a short distance from the Important Junction of Ham, with Us roads leading to St. Quentin and La Fere. On the south they have inadc further crossings of the Allelic ltiver. and are fast skirting the great wooded region which acts as a barrier to direct attack on La'pn, the Cheniln-des-Dames and the western Aisne defenses of the enemy. Soenir ingly at the present rut?- of progress this barrier shortly will have b?S6tt overcome and, indeed, the entire salient northwest of Soiasons obliterated. Already the French south of Fresnes. on the fringe of the high forest "6f I'oucy, have penetrated the old Hlnden burg line. All behind the lines northeast -oC Noyon grent rontlaorrations are to ba seen, particularly around Jussy and Ij'.i Fere, which apparently indicates that the Germans intend to fall back as fast as they can to the old German lines running southeastward from St. Quent in. The French and Americans are hard after the Germans between the Vesle Kiver and the Aisne. and for more than eight miles, extending from Conde to Vlel-Arvy. they have driven the enemy across the Aisne and are standing'on the southern bunk of the river. ~ UEH31AXS inn.i) FIR.MI.Y IX IllM; 10.Y OF RHEIMS Eastward toward Rheims. almost up to the gates of the cathedral city, the German line is falling back northward. At the anchor-point of the line in the vicinity of Uheims, however, the Gpr matis seem to be holding, evidently realizing that a retrograde movement here would necessitate a straightening of their line perhaps as far eastward as Verdun. . In the Initial maneuver along the Vesle front, the Americans and French captured both Bazoches and Fismette. From Bazoches they moved six iiiilffS northward to Vcl-Arey, while . from Fismette they have penetrated more than three miles northward to Bar bonval, which Is only a little more than a mile south of the Aisne. In Flanders the British have taken the town of Ploegsteert and positions southwest of Messines and northeast of Wulverghem and repulsed strong counterattacks launched against them.
