The daily average required for the rest of the coal year from now lilt March 31, 1!M9, to make up the deficit between rate of production to date and requirements is 2,041,000 net tons, and despite that the report of the last recorded coal week shows more than that, the average daily production for the coal year thus far since April 1, is it.2 per cent less than that, with the factor of weather conditions becoming loss favorable. .Some encouragement is seen by the j fuel administration, however, in the speeding up oy the miners that re sulted i.? producing bituminous coal to the amount of 11,249,000 net tons for ' Hie week end-ng September 7, including the lay off l.ahor Day, exceeding by 1.000,000 net tons ;he out.tut week of July t>, which also was limited by a holiday; exceeding the corresponding week in P.M7 by 1.257,000 net tons and averaging daily production of 2,110, nnt> net tons, which is more than the future daily average required.

[By Associated Press.] Marshal Foch, pursuing his policy of Riving the Germans never a minute's rest, followed up the Incisive stroke of the Americans, which wiped out ih'e St. Mihlcl salient in two days' time, by launching an offensive Saturday morning on the French front along tho bend in the line around Laon. The blow took immediate effect on the German lines, pushing them back from one to two miles at points in this important sector, where it is well-nigh vital for the Germans to hold fast if they hope to retain control of any con siderable part of northern Franco dur? ing the coming winter. Meanwhile, the process of cleaning up the St. Mihiel salient waa being continued by Ceneral l'ershlng's troops, who s<> far are reported to have ef fected the capture of more than 20,000 Germans as the result of the clean cut drive of the American first Army. There were Indications in the reports from the front that the American suc cess might have done somewhat more than straighten out the line above the former St. Mlhk-1 bund, for the Germans were said to be retiring near Challl ion, along a front live or six miles to tlie northwest of the foimer westerly lip of ti?e salient. They wore prob ably forced to this in the readjust nuMit o? their line to meet the altored conditions.
