March 27. The British forces are not only offering strong re sistance to heavy enemy attacks both north and south of the River Somme, but have carried out numerous counter attacks during the day, resulting in the regaining of ground and the driving back of the Germans at various points. The report from Field Marshal Haig tonight declares that in these oper ations heavy casualties have been in flicted on the enemy. The text of the statement reads: "The battle was renewed this morn ing with great violence south and north of the Somme. Intense fighting has taken place during the day from south or Rosieres to north of Ablaln ville (Ahlainzevelle). Attempted Drive Fails "An unsuccessful attempt made by the enemy last night to drive in our line south of the Somme was folowed this morning by a series of heavy at tacks in the neighborhood of Rosieres and to the south of that place. At Ro sieres al the enemy's assaults have been beaten off by our troops, who in flicted heavy casualties on the enemy. "Farther north our line was main tained through the earlier part of the day in spite of great pressure from large hostile forces. "Later in the day a fresh German at tack developed in this area, with the result tmt pur line was taken back a short distance to the west. Later re ports show that our counter attacks have again completely restored the sit uation. Make Determined Attacks "During the day the enemy made a number of determined attacks against our positions between the Somme and the Ancre and north and south of Al bert. Fierce fighting has taken place in this sector also. "Part of our position to the south of Albert, into which the enemy at one time forced his way, was regained by us by a counter attack and a further heavy attack delivered by the enemy at this point during the afternoon was' completely repulsed. "Attempts made by the enemy in the cause of the day to debouch westward from the town of Albert have been driven back, in each instance with "the heaviest casualties." German Gain Footing "This afternoon also the enemy at tacked in great strength in the neigh borhood of Bucquoy and Ablainville and gained a footing in the latter vil lage. At all other points his infantry has been beaten off with great loss "Our troops have again fought mag nificently and as shown In the above account, have today thrown back the enemy all alone the British ..-in. heavy losses in spite of most bitter ul..l.lJuim:u aiUtUKS KHQ 111S SU- penority in numbers.

Enor. mously long ambulance trains are passing through Liege ana jsamur, Belgium, on their way to Aix-la-Chapelle and other parts of Germany with wounded men from the French battle front, according to the Telegraaf frontier correspondent. Many of the wounded have been de trained at Xamur, says the corre spondent, who adds that the hospitals in northern France have not sufficient accommodations for the great stream of sufferers. The Telegraaf s Zevenaar corre spondent says the first transports with wounded have arrived at frontier towns. Commenting on this fact the Telegraaf says that while the German communications speak of the slight German losses it is significant that even in the most out of the way places in Germany wounded are arriving.

Ten foreign born coal miners were driven out of Hartford, a mining town near here tonight after being forced to kiss the American flag, according to information received here. Wilson to task for permitting the con tinued use of grain and foodstuffs in the manufacture of wine and beer and the use of transportatien facilities for the shipment for beer and wines to the deteriment of the movement of food detriment of : the movement of food Says All Are Doing Best After Senator Shafroth of Colorado, democrat, had deplored what he termed "unfair" criticism of war operations and said all government officials were doing their best, Senator Willians took the floor. He referred to the demand of Senator Johnson of California, re publican,, yesterday, for "pitiless pub licity," regarding lack of American air planes and to the assertion of Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, republican. that the people should be told the truth about war conditions, remarking that these speeches were made on the most ritical day of the German offensive. "While in Wisconsin election im pends between loyalists and disloyal ists, this poisonous gas attack in the senate was made," said the Mississippi senator, "not only on the republican side, but followed up on the democratic side, and just about the time we are going to determine whether a man of lukewarm support of America and the j allies or a man always patriotic is to be elected to the senate." Is Criticism Accidental Asking if the coincidence of the sen ate criticism was "accidental," Senator Williams said the democratic criticism came from "those who also have been somewhat lukewarm" on American questions. Senator McCumber, North Dakota, asked if Senator Williams was not un fair regarding his reference to Rep resentative Lenroot . as being "luke warm" stating he understood both Mr. Lenroot and Mr. Davies, the demo cratic candidate, stand upon loyalty platforms of Americanism and that both are patriotic. - Senator Williams replied that if he was correctly informed Representative Lenroot supported the embargo pro posal, the McLemore resolution and voted against war with Germany. Sen ator Smoot said that as a matter of fact Mr. Lenroot voted for the war re solution and observed that several democrats also voted for the McLemore proposal. Senator Willaims deplored partisan ship in the war; and said, "the repub lican party as a whole has been pa triotic and true." to the country." Republican Leader Gallinger inter rupted to suggest that as Dr. Davies was not a member of congress his at titude could not be recorded on the McLemore resolution. He intimated that Senator Williams would vote for any candidate provided he was a demo crat. On Stump Because Democrat "I assume the vice president is on the stump ifi Wisconsin," said Mr. Gal linger, "because Mr. Davies is a demo crat." Deploring petty criticism of isolated cases in war conditions, Senator Wil liams said there is "too much pessim ism" in the country and that even if Paris were captured and the British army driven back to England, the two English-speaking races would finally win. "Why can't we hold up our hearts," he asked "instead of coming in about once a week in apparently prepared and preconceived way for the purpose of throwing doubt on the efficiency of our government machinery. "'It's a- bad day when we ought to be praising success . of our allies snri American boys and instead the nation is presented the spectacle nf a riho about how many airplanes we have." senator iall of New Mexico, repub lican, interrupted with!

"I have at tempted to avoid partisan politics since the war began. Today I spoke only in defense of the attacks which largely have (.been induced by partisan mo tives."" - Senator Curtis, republican "whip,' followed with a defense of Representa. tiVe Lenroot. He declared that the bu reau of public information has cir culated the Wisconsin representative's speech as documents of patriotism and loyalty and that congressional records show war measures have been sup ported by 76 per cent fcf the. .total re publican membership and .that 75 per cent minus of the democrats had voted for them. Senator Smoot declared that the re publicans had supported legislation asked "by the president, "although some of it has been revolutionary and so Swift & Company's 1918 Year Book shows that Swift & Company sells the meat from a steer iox less money than the live steer cost!

Attention to Blunders "Xo republican," he asserted, "has sought to secure party advantage by calling attention of the country to ad mitted blunders of the administration. No word of warning of the extrava gant and wicked waste of the people's money or weaknesses in efficiency of the administration have been intimated but some democrat would immediately rise and claim that it would only bring Jov to the kaiser." The Utah senator contrasting re- publican and democratic partisanship, declared all democrats directed their efforts to . party advance. President Wilson, he said, has frankly announced himself the leader of his party. "Xo man while occupying the White House," the Utah senator proceeded, "has ever uttered strictures against his political opponents as severe as Presi dent Wilson in his Indianapolis speech. By speeches and actions in national and local campaigns and by refusal to accept proffered services of "a most capable man" of the opposition party, he said, the president had proven his partisanship. President Wilson's recent letter to Mr. Davies stating the McLemore re solution was the "acid test" of pa triotism and his letter to New Jersey democrats were cited by Senator Smoot ;as proof of the president's partisan purposes.
