American troops last night at tacked the Germans to the east of Torcy, in the district north jWtst of Chateau Thierry. The Ffench continued their advance on the American left. At last reports the operation was pro pressing satisfactorily. The American artillery was active all night in the Belleau wood sector. The fire increased in, intensity at 4 o'clock this ^anorning, when the Americans attacked in the southern part of the wood, taking prisoners and a number of machine guns. The battle was still raging there this afternoon. German prisoners report that new German troops are moving' up in their rear on the American sector on this front. The enemy artillery fire is in-! creasing, indicating that the Ger-! mans are bringing up additional i big guns. Fight in Gas Masks. j American troops on the front north- j west of Chateau ThlerfV thowed \ down the enemy with machine gun ( and rifle Are at midnight last night, when the Germans made an attack on their position. Americans fought like demons and at one point killed 100 Germans. , The Germans launched their thrust ! against the Americans in the vicinity of Bouresches. They were completely ?topped, however, about 400 yards from the American trenches. This result was achieved despite tho Intense enemy bombardment, *||ltcfi included the use of gas in a Win form. 8econd Attack Brilliant. The second Franco-American at- ? tack in the neighborhood of Veuilly- ] la-Poterie and Boureschcs was a bril- j Slant success to the allied arms. It was continued yesterday with an ad- j vance in the Chezy sector, father north- j ^ wjest on the line. e enemy seemed somewhat dis heartened, replying only feebly to the allied Are. Prisoners arriving at the roar in small batches appear to be thoroughly exhausted and depressed by the turn affairs are taking. Quite Important advantages have lm gained by the allies in the course of numerous small infantry engage moats during the past two days. The French, American and British troops hare participated in these actions and the hag of-prisoners is considerable. The tactical situation of the allies is improved by the reconquest of a number of dominant points. As a gen eral rule the great German effort in the valley of the Mame seems to be fading away as the enemy comes in contact with something approaching .^is numbers. V. S. Balds Near Montdidier. Americans with the French have made trench raids along the left bank of the Avre river in the Montdidier seetor. These raids have been car ried out with good effect and enemy works have been destroyed as well as ?ororal prisoners captured. Everywhere the American troops are rapidly becoming accustomed to every jyhase of the war. They are showing Initiative and dash which has been ktedly commented upon by vet French and British soldiers, who welcome their appearance. IW7 Gunfire In Toul Sector. Hoary artillery Are from the Ger man batteries, opening at 8 o'clock this morning, continued throughout tho day In the Toul sector. There was no other activity, however.

In tho battlefield of the Marne, where a week ago the Germans were hurling their masses of troops against the western side of the wedge they had driven into the allied lines in the battle that began March 26, the Teu tons are now standing virtually on the defensive in the Chateau Thierry sector. American and French troops are participating in a reaction on the extreme tip of the salient and are making progress in this important re gion. The British are engaged on the other side of the wedge between the Marne and Rheims. Attacks Spread Northward. While the operations take the nature of local attacks, they have had their effect in driving the Germans back from the points they reached on the crest of the wave that carried them far on the road to Paris. The attacks, which began just to the northwest of Chateau Thierry, are spreading northward along the line and everywhere the allies report ground recovered from the enemy. The rush of the American marines and the French on Thursday after noon has not continued to gain ground as fast as it did at the in ception of the movement, but it is still going on. In the meantime they have withstood two violent attacks by the Germans and have repulsed the enemy in decisive fashion. Artillery Fire Renewed. Reports from the whole battle line in France are to the effect that there has been renewed activity on the part j of the German artillery in several ! sectors of the front. Notable amorce j I the regions under bombardment is the j line between Noyon and Montdidier. , It is along this line that a heavy j enemy offensive has been expected by j military experts since the momentum i of the German advance from the Aisne j has died away. ; When the Germans pushed west i from St. Quentin late in March and | early in April the line from Noygn toi Montdidier was almost equal ltt ira- i portance to that in front of Amiens, i The French forces were rushed to this] front and fought savagely td stop- the German advance and retake ground which was of strategic and tactical importance. Eyes on Woevre Sector. At the same time the Woevre sector, just to the southeast of Verdun, is claiming attention. Large move ments of enemy troops in the direc tion of St, Mihiel have been reported by aerial observers, and there are in dications that the positions of the Americans along . this part of the front may be in^tfie storm center of a terrific attack soon. The advantages to be gai.ned by the Germans, if they succeed in breaking t this line, are manifold. Eighteen miles j west of St. Mihiel is the town of Bar- [ le-Duc, and still farther westward, twenty-eight miles awav, is Vitry, I which would be but a stepping stone ! to a dash to Chalons-Sur-Marne. If the line at St. Mihiel could be broken j or driven back very far the whole! Verdun sector would be in peril and might have<?to be abandoned. Activities in Flanders. In the Flanders sector, which has been quiet since the beginning of the attack along the Aisne, the Germans on Wednesday sought to Improve their positions by capturing the hos pice at Locre. This point would give them a starting point for an attack on the village of> Locre, which is con sidered one of the keys to the allied positions along the hills behind the line southwest of Ypres. The French forces in this sector on Friday, how ever, attacked the enemy and drove him back to his former positions and the allied line has been restored. Brit ish have gained near Vermezeele. There have been no engagements of a notable character on the Italian front, but in Macedonia the allies, particularly the Greeks, have been continuing their aggressive opera tions. | KAISER'S $5,000 GOLD CUP IS PEWTER; WORTH $40 Deception Discovered When Trophy Was Bought and Smashed for Benefit of Bed Cross. NEW YORK, June 8.?German proof of the saying'that all is not gold that glitters w*s forthcoming here today with the disclosure that the "magnifi cent" cup which Emperor William awarded to the American winner of j his ocean yacht race in 1905 was not j gold and was not worth $5,000, as was announced at that time. It was made of pewter with a thin veneer of gold j and was worth scarcely $40. The deception recoiled against the j emperor during the recent Red Cross ? drive, it was revealed today, as It was auctioned and reauctioned until it add ed $125,000 to the nation's mercy fund. President Wilson .was in the audi ence when the "gold" trophy, bearing the emperor's likeness engraved on I the side, was smashed with a hammer ! on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera | House here a few weeks ago. Persons who had desired to see the cup broken had paid $5 each to the Red Cross to get on the stage. The "gold" remnants were later to have been sold for cash for the Red Cross, but the dealer to whom they were of fered said they were pewter, and he was not an alchemist. Wilson Marshall's yacht Atlantic won the race for which the cup was the prize. David B. Cain Out on $10,000 Bail. NORFOLK, Va., June David B.

IJ.v. the Axsociated Press. WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IX FRANCE, June 8.?The revival of ar tillery activity in the sector between Noyon and Montdidier Is claiming at tention today. Whether the Germans intend to deliver another blow here with their still jlowerful reserves cannot be foreseen, but the indications point to such an event. The German gunners in this region are very active in securing ranges on allied positions. -This work, how ever. is carried out with difficulty, as the allied cannon Incessantly harry the enemy's battery emplacements and bombard the rear of his lines. Most of the German shock divisions used in the Marne battlefield have been withdrawn from that area Severe Battle Near Rheims. The most severe among the minor battles fought recently in the Marne Rhelms region was in the vicinity : of St. Euphraise and Champlet, west ward from Kheims. The Germans launched a serious at tack' here at dawn Thursday morn- j ing along a four-mile front. They planned to pierce the. allied lines to a. depth of two and one-half miles, which would permit them to outflank Rheims mountain and thus capture the city. It would have reduced at the same time the salient held by the1 allies, which endangers a large part of the line. The village and spur of Blgny fell Into their hands when they came for- 1 ward In dense waves, but the British immediately counter attacked and took the spur. Simultaneously the French counter attacked and reached the outskirts of Bligny and on a second attempt today recaptured the village and re-established the line. The Germans suffered most severely from artillery Are, the two divisions engaged losing many killed and over 200 prisoners. Field Marshal Haig's Report. LONDON, June 8?Field Marshal Haig's report from British headquar ters tonight follows: "We raided the enemy's trenches last night south of Arras and inflict ed casualties on his garrison."

Aerial operations by the British are described in an official statement Is sued tonight as follows: "In the air a good deal of observa tion and photographic work was car ried out by us on June 7. Bombing was active on both sides. We dropped twenty-three tons of bombs on rail way junctions, airdromes and dumps beyond the German lines. "Twelve machines were brought down by our airmen and seven were drivel down out of control. We lost three machines. "On the night of June 7 no flying was possible."

BIG SCALE CONSERVATION The District Commissioners this I week will try to find a way to effect far-reachirg water economies in Wash- I inpton. The situation as to water consump tion admittedly has reached the point where unless something is done to check wastes the Capital may find jtseif in an uncomfortable position before the end of summer. Saving Without Hardship. In an appeal to citizens, the Com- j missioners call on each individual to* save as much water daily as possible j ?a gallon or more when possible. A saving of half a million gallons a day ! by individual users could be effected j easily and without working" hardships J of any kind, it is believed. The Commissioners, however, are I more concerned about the waste of water by the government depart ments, hotels, manufacturing con cerns and other big users. Effort will be made to devise restrictions which j will conserve water on a big scale. } Conservation is said to offer the j o.ily immediate relief in sight. Water is being used in Washington at the rate of about 65,000,000 gallons a day, which, according to Army engineers,; is the safe dependable capacity of the conduit. One day last month the con sumption was more than 70,000,000 gallons. Hay Cat Off Fountains. It may become necessary to cut off fountains in parks and restrict con siderably the amount of water that may be used for sprinkling lawns and sidewalks. But hardships will not be imposed on Individuals if sufficient economies can be produced in other ways. Voluntary effort on the part of Individuals in saving water wher ever possible may lead to such a sav ing in the aggregate as to render re mote what otherwise might become a serious situation. GERMAN SOCIALISTS PERSECUTED, IS CLAIM LONDON, June 8.?A Copenhagen dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company says that the censorship de bate in the relchstag, which began Tuesday, was continued today. Amid turmoil from his hearers. Deputy Herzfeld, Independent socialist, cited numerous persecutions against the socialists by the authorities. He char acterized as traitors to the working classes those socialists, who aided the general command to distribute circu lars requesting workers to resist enemy agitation in Germany. Deputy Muller announced the ex istence of what he termed the "black cabinet," which practiced a secret censorship of the letters of members 1 of the different parties in the relchs tag. KEYMEN IN WEST REFUSE TO STRIKE Indications Given That Walk out Will Not Take Place as Scheduled. PRESIDENT WILSON ACTS That a general response to the nation wide strike call of the Commercial Teleg raphers' Union predicted by labor lead ers will not materialize was indicated last night. Several thousand commercial operators employed by the Western Union Tele graph Company In Chicago, Seattle and Spokane wired President "Wilson late yesterday that they would not be parties to any movement looking to a disrup tion of the country's commercial tele graph service .during the war. They deplored agitation looking to a strike of the operators and pledged their loyalty to the government. Commercial oper ators in other large cities, It was said, are expected to take the same action. Not Represented by Strike Leaders. Some 3.000 telegraphers in Chicago told the President that they were not represented by any labor leaders who had threatened to call a strike, and that they resented the inference that they were so represented and might be "so base and disloyal" as to support a strike. The war labor board announced last night that final decisions in the cases of the Bethlehem Steel Company workers and Postal Telegraph Com pany employes will be given by the board at Chicago Wednesday. The steel workers explained that they had been denied the right to organize and bargain collectively with their em ployers, while the Postal Company employes colnplained that the com pany discharged them because of their membership in the Commercial Teleg raphers' Union. Move Made by President Wilson. President Wilson moved yesterday to prevent the threatened strike of the commercial operators.. The situation was discussed at a conference between him and Secretary of Labor Wilson at the White House. Although it has not been officially announced, local labor leaders de clared that the President had sum-! moned S. J. Konenkamp, president of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union, and President Carlton of the Western Union Company to a conference here early this week. 400 PERSONS KILLED IN RUSSIAN EXPLOSION By the Associated Press. MOSCOW, June 8.?Four hundred persons are dead as the result of an explosion of munitions near Jassy May 30. An Amsterdam dispatch, June 7, said that sixty persons were killed and hundreds injured in a fire and re sultant explosions in a Ukrainian munitions depot at Smerinetz, west of the Lawra river. Jassy, the Rumanian capital, is about ten miles from the Ukrainian border. SAVE WATER!" IS APPEAL MADE TO D. C. RESIDENTS Save Water! The District Commissioners ma.ke this appeal to every Wash ingtonian. Water is now being consumed in the capital at the rate of about 65,000,000 gallons a day. Army engineers say this represents the safe dependable capacity of the conduit. Washington's tremendous growth in population has made its water problem acute. Conservation of water at the nation's 'seat of government has become as important as conservation of food. One gallon of water saved each day by each individual would amount to an enormous saving in the aggregate, and might be the means of preventing a water famine. Government departments, hotels and big users of water are to be asked to put economy meas ures into practice at once. The individual citizen is asked to do his "bit" without delay. Plan of Commissioners to Satisfy Municipal Employes Who Quit Jobs. MEDIATION MAY BE TRIE*D Hope of a settlement of the strike of municipal per diem employes, be gun yesterday because twenty men in the pumping station of the sewers department were dismissed on account ? of lack of funds, last night centered I in the statement of District officials | that work may be obtained by the j mnn in th-3 construction division of1 the department until pay is available for their old positions at the begin ning of the next fiscal year, July 1. The Secretary of Labor has been \ asked by the Commissioners to assist! in adjusting: the difficulty and it ap- i peared probable that the offer of tem- j porary work for the remainder of the j month might serve as a basis for a j settlement. Unless some* such offer is accepted by the men, the Commissioners' hands will be tied, it is said. They have but $1,300 with which to run the pumping: station until the end of the fiscal year and to retain all the men now on the rolls would entail an expenditure of about $2,300. Construction Division Nerds Men. Butpthe construction division of the department Is in need of men and has - the money with which to pay them. One of the complaints of the City j Umployes' Association, which officially . called the strike, was that the fami- ! lies of the discharged men would suf- | fer privation and hardship. The Commissioners' answer is that i there will be no occasion for any one j to suffer hardship, as the employment i offered in the construction division \ will be sufficient to maintain the dis- j charged employes and their families until the next appropriation act be comes effective. While the strike was called primari ly because of the discharge of the men referred to, the union. In its ul timatum to the Commissioners yes terday, stated that there would be no return to work until its demands for Increased pay, communicated to the District heads May 29, had been ad justed satisfactorily. Proposal by Commissioners. Before yesterday's strike was call ed the Commissioners had proposed to j the association that arbitration by the Secretary of Labor of all matters in dispute be accepted. In answering: this proposal the association stated that, while it favored arbitration as a principle, it did not feel justified in enforcing upon its members a period j of idleness "during which time the I dependent members of their families j would be made to suffer privation and j hardship." The association has demanded a minimum pay of $3 per day for un- I skilled labor and $4 a day for skilled labor. After beginning: a strike Mon day the men returned to work the same -day under an agreement with j the Commissioners that their demands i would be considered. The discharge j of the twenty men from the pumping station, according to the Commis-; sioners, had been decided upon as an imperative measure before they had any intimation that a strike was brewing. But the union apparently is of the impression that the action was a retaliatory one against mem bers of that body. Although approximately 1,000 me chanics and other per diem men, con stituting the District's force of skill ed and unskilled labor, walked out at noon yesterday, the full force of1 the strike will not be felt until to- l morrow. Per diem men do little work i on Saturday afternoons and Sunday. Affects Street Cleaning*. The strike will make itsfelf felt to morrow in the street cleaning work. In fact, cessation of this work will be the first serious result of the walk out and may constitute a menace to the health of Washington. Should mechanics at the sewerage and water pumping stations leave their posts the capital would be confronted with a real danger. But hope is felt that these employes will stick through the crisis. , Having a strike on their hands did ! not prevent the Commissioners yes- | terday from considering the appeal of annual employes, including the1 clerks of the District government, for an increase in pay. Acting on this appeal, the Commissioners sent,a let ter yesterday to the Senate District committee urging a substantial boost in all grades of salaries. The increases urged are included in five grades and are tfie same as those asked for by the clerks in a petition submitted to the Commissioners ear lier in the week. Details Vary Concerning Re ported Encounter With U. S. Destroyer. JACKIES ARE ELATED AN ATLANTIC PORT, June 8.?Un official reports, regarding which naval officials are silent, reached here to day telling of an encounter during yesterday off the coast between a United States destroyer and a German submarine. Details vary as to the result of the chase, one report being to the effect that the submersible was sunk and another that the craft was seri ously damaged by gunfire from the destroyer and was forced to sur render, the U-boat being towed into a haven. A third report is to the I efTect that the crew of the crippled I submarine, unable to submerge, took ' advantage of approaching darkness to abandon their craft, and that they escaped in a small boat. The rePpr^ that an ocean4 resort was searched last night for a party landing in a -small boat lends color to the last report. , . The reports toniglit are in general circulation among enlisted men on shore leave from the ship and naval station and are being told with great elation by the jackies. The conflict in details is- probably due to the strict censorship enforced. That an American destroyer had at least a brush at sea with one of the sea wolves seems certain. It is also said that the craft was positively identi fied by number. All efforts to se~ cure an affirmation or denial of these stories failed. Anchor Line Steamer, 800 Miles Out, Sent Wireless Saying U-Boat Was Near AN ATLANTIC PORT, June 8.?A British transatlantic steamer which ar rived tonight reported that a wireless message had been received from an | Anchor line steamer 800 miles off the New England co^st last Wednesday that j a submarine was close by.

AN' ATLANTIC PORT, June 8 ? Racing at full speed for nearly a week to escape German submarines, an American steamship arrived here to day from the 'West Indies with fifty nine passengers, more than half of whom were women and children. With the first .Inkling that U-boats were at work, the captain took dras tic steps to protect his ship and the lives of his passengers. Taking a zig zag course, he ordered the engineers to get up every pound of steam pos sible, and then ran far oft the route usually followed by steamers engag ed In the West Indian trade. Life boats were prepared for Instant low ering, and passengers warned that If they appeared on deck they would be thrown Into Irons. Officers and men obtained no sleep for the last seventy-two hours, keep ing a constant lookout for subma rines, floating mines or lifeboats from the raiders' victims.
