' - f Tr v - S "1- The French assert that they have continued their advance on their left and repulsed the enemy's attacks to the north of Rheims. In the center of the line and to the east of Rheims they assert they have gained ground through the vigor of their attack. On the extreme right the movement of the troops has become extremely difficult. The Germans made an attack upon their right and gained ground from which they were after ward compelled to retreat. In the center they have bombarded Rheims from positions which they held around that city and succeeded in destroying many of the public buildings. Through this bombardment it is thought that they have managed to secure the advantage which the possession of this position gives. NO U, S. AID FOR Garrison Cannot Set Date for Removal of Troops From Vera Cruz. The American forces at Vera Cruz will bo withdrawn just as soon as ar rangements for tho transfer of the muni cipal government to Mexican control can bo completed, and no transports will be furnished by this Givernment to brings priests, nuns or other refugees out of Mexico. These questions were settled at a conference today between President Wilson and Secretary cf War Garrison. After the conference Secretary Gar rison declined to name a specific date when the troops would be withdrawn. The army transports, he said, will reach Vera Cruz Friday or Saturday, and the American forces will bo withdrawn as soon thereafter as the transfer of muni cipal authority to General Aguilar, whom General Carranza has designated for the purpose, can be made. The Secretary declared emphatically that the United States was now called upon to provide transportation for refu gees from Mexico. In this respect he said, no distinction could be made In favor of the Catholic priests and nuns said to be In danger because' of Car ranza's anti-Catholic attitude. While neither the State nor War De partments today had any confirmation of the reported arrest at Chihuahua of Gen. Alvara Obregon, commander-in-chief of tho Carranza forces, by Gen. Villa, reports of troop movements by men under Villa's command in north ern Mexico caused officials to agree there would be need of troops on the border until conditions become more settled. Protests believed to have been In spired by Governor Colquitt of Texas against the proposed removal of tioops from the border were laid be fore the War Department today by Congressman Garner, of Texas Citi zens of cities and towns along the Texas border are, said to fear that looting raids b Mexican bands along border towns will begin as soon as the troops are withdrawn. If any ac tion is taken at this time. The ar and Navy Departments arc determined that Mexican refugees who are able to leave Vera Cruz on vessels living the American Hag shall not be forcibly taken oft such vessels. To this end the Navy Department, at the suggestion of Rear Admiral Beatty and General Funston, orelend the scout cruiser Chester, ordered north for re pairs, to put in at I'rogreso todiy to stand alongside the Ward line steamer Usperanza.
