i BRITISH PREPARE
FOR GREATER BLOW
3 Conditions in Macedona Arc
i Assuming Important
Proportions.
The wiping out of the German sa9
llenl at Messines npepars in the light
1 of later developments to be merely the
1 prelude to a projected battle of a fat
J mightier description. After a German
9 reaction of a surprising feeble character
the British have resumed trench
5 raids over a front reaching lrom nojth
of Ypres to as far south as Epeby, a
9 district of about 7" miles as the crow
9 flies but far more than that along the
? Lortuous windings of ihe battle front
The official announcement from
9 north of Ypres is of special interest in
9 view of the recent frequently reported
heavy artillery fire on the Belgian
JI front Some weeks ago the Germans
j | made a voluntary retirement from in
! front of the Belgian line, a fact little
1 noted at the time in the pressure of
9 greater events. From Ypres, the allied
1 fronts curves sharply to the sea and
an advance here would threaten the
German hold on tlijeir great submarine
bases on the Belgian coast, Ostend and
Zeebrugge.
In the meantime there are indications
that General Sarrail is preparing
to resume the ofenslve in Macedonia,
I the Bulgarian official announcement
I reporting a great increase in the vio|
lenco of the allied artillery fire on this
front. Conslderabto fighting has been
going on in Macedonia for a month or
more bat the meagreness of the otfl3
cial reports and surpassing interests in
the advance in Franve have combined
to obscure the situation.
Another gleam of light has pierced
the darfc cloud hanging over Russia.
The Cossacks have again voiced their
s determination to support the provisional
government and there are lndi
3 catlcnB they will receive strong backing
from peasants This cheering news
comes on the heeis of the publication
. of President WJlsor's message to Russia,
which is hailed by the British press
[ as not only a great state document but
. powerful reinforcement to the men who
3 are striving for law and order in the
, infant republic.
L Berlin's official bulletins today
points further to '.he probability that
1 the British are preparing for new at,
tacks on the Belgian front. A considerable
Increase hi artillery activity is
c reported there, notably In the sector of
. the Dunnes near the coast in the vK
f cinlty of Nieuport and east of Tpres
j where the recent Biltlsh advance was
carried out. In this last sector, indeed
. General Plummer's troops made anew
i local thrust last n'.gbt and advanced a
i line slightly south of Measures.
I On the French front, the artillery
1 on both sides has displayed somewhat
? unusual activity north of the Somme,
i and in the region *i Cerny along the
t Cbemin-des-DameSfOn the Aisne front.
