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

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.
