PROGRESS OF THE WAR
From Sunday’s Salt Lake Tribune When the Germans had retreated to the Vesle river, between Soissons and Rheims, and occupied strong po sitions on the north bank, it would have been quite the normal thing if General Foch had begun a flank attack on an extension of the Vesle line, -either west of Soissons or east of Rheims. As a matter of fact, he did force the fighting near Rheims, but it was only a demonstration. The most natural place to strike a heavy blow was between Soissons and Ribe court, south of Noyon. The Germans probably looked for the drive in this region and prepared to meet it. But General Foch, although he re alized the importance of success along the Ribecourt-Soissons line, carried out two offensives after the Marne victory before hitting on the front of Soissons-Ribecourt. That action was reserved for last week, and by the time the allied generalissimo was ready to commence it the enemy’s preparation in this region must have SHERIFFS SALE In the Second Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada, in and for the County of Washoe.

JAMES MACKEY, Sheriff of Eureka County, Nevada. been seriously disarranged as a result of the Franco-British drive against the west side of the Picardy salient, which took the allied armies to aline beginning at Albert, running south east to Chaulnes, thence to a point west of Lassigny, turnihg southeast to Ribecourt. In the engagement of the last week the French have captured Lassigny and have driven a deep wedge to the north, with its base on the line Ribe court-Soissons. In the fighting the French have taken about 12,000 prisoners and more than 200 guns. They have placed Noyon in a pocket and have outflanked the enemy posi tions along the Vesle river. While these operations were m progress the British, who had been held up temporarily in their drive south of Albert, launched an offen sive north of that place last Wednes day along a front of about ten miles. They advanced in the general direc tion of Bapaume, which was their main objective in the first battle of the Somme during July, 1916. At that time thev fought from July un til November bebore they reached their objective. In the fighting of the last three days they have ad vanced three or four miles and now are within a mile and a quarter of Bapaume. On the second day of the offensive they struck at Albert it self and captured it. Then they ex tended their operations on both their right and left flanks, attacking from from a point near Arras on the north, as far as Lihons on the south, a front of more than twenty miles. The first day’s attack began with out artillery preparation, in a mist. Hundreds of big and little tanks swept through the German defenses, mopping up machine gun positions and cutting off many units from re treat. in a few hours the British Had captured several thousand pris oners. The success of the first day was repeated on the second. Although the penetration of the enemy’s heav ily fortified position was not deep, it was sufficient to destroy or capture many of the main points of resistance in this region. The loss of the Al bert pivot was a serious blow to the enemy. In this region are a number of the strongest positions held by the Ger mans in 1916. Fully aware of the sit uation, General Rawlinson and Byng did not directly attack in the direc tion of Thiepval and Bray. Their principal efforts were on the flanks of.these fortresses, which fell yester day. The Germans have counter-attacked frequently in the last few days, in an effort to wear out the attackers and to hold positions which are the mainstay of the German right flank in the Picardy salient. Once these positions are lost, the Huns must go back beyond Bapaume and Perrone to the Hindenburg line. Already Ba paume is outflanked to the north, where the British have taken Ervillers and are near St. Leger. Since July 15 the Allies have taken about 110,000 prisoners, and of these about 40,000 have been captured in the last week. Although no accurate count of light and heavy cannon cap tured has been made public, the re ports made from day to day would indicate that the Allies had taken be tween 1300 and 1500. In the Lys salient, which was formed by the German drive this spring to ward the channel ports, the enemy has been retiring bit by bit for sev eral weeks. At some points he has fallen back more than three miles. At the junction of the new line with the old southwest of Kemmel hill, the Germans lost Dranoutre ridge. They are reported to have recaptured this position. During the week the Germans raid ed the American positions along the Vesle, in order to ascertain, no doubt, whether General Foch was preparing a drive from that direction. In Lor raine the Americans wiped out a sharp salient apexing into their lines when they captured the town of Fra pelle, inflicting heavy losses on the foe. The Bolsheviki threw off the mask and declared war on the United States. The pro-German government maintains its troops with the aid of Germany. Its armies are officered by Germans and its ranks are filled with released German prisoners. In addition, thousands of ignorant Rus sian working men are fighting the battles of the kaiser. A large force of the Bolsheviki operating in the Usuri river region, north of Vladi vostok, compelled the Czecho-Slo vaks, who were said to have been aid ed by the recently landed Japanese and British, to retire. Evidently the Japanese have not yet taken the field in large numbers, although several contingents of them have arrived at Vladivostok, as have American, Brit ish and French contingents also. The Siberian situation remains ob scure. Every day reports of victor ies come from both sides. The Czecho-Slovaks appear to be in con trol of the trans-Siberian railway at practically all important points be tween the Russian border and the Pacific ocean.
