GERMANS QUIT VESLE RIVER
Continue Their Retreat From Lys Sec
tor, Where Americans Fight on
Belgian Soil—Bolshevik! Are
Defeated in Siberia and
Northern Russia.
By EDWARD W. PICKARD.
The whole western front, from Ypres
to Reims, was ablaze all the week, and
throughout all the long stretch the Ger
mans continued their retreat. The ar
mies of the allies followed closely on
their heels, hammering at them day
and night and giving them not a mo
ment’s pause for reorganization of
their wearied forces. It was another
week of uninterrupted allied success,
and the withdrawal of the Huns was
extended to include the Vesle river
sector, between Soissons and Reims.
Until Wednesday there had been little
activity there, except continuous artil
lery work and some sharp fighting be
tween the Americans and the Germans
in the region of Fismes and Fismette.
But in the first days of the week air
plane observers reported evidences of
a coming retreat by the enemy, and
this developed on Wednesday. The
American and French patrols pursued
the Huns promptly and by Thursday
had reached the crest dominating the
Aisne, across which river the Germans
seemed likely to take the main bodies
of their troops.
This retrograde movement was made
necessary by the successful advance of
General Mangin’s army north and
northwest of Soissons between the Ail
ette and the Aisne, threatening the
Cliemin des Dames and flanking the
enemy line toward Fismes. With the
aid of Americans, Mangin was moving
steadily down the Aisne plateau and
in the direction of Laon, and it ap
peared doubtful that the Huns would
be able to remain long south of the
Hindenburg line through Aniz.v nnd
Craonne. They were driven out of
Clemency, Bray, Missy-sur-Aisne and
many other towns in this region, and
the French as early as Wednesday
night were in the outskirts of Coucy,
one of the Important German bases on
the edge of the St. Gobaln forest. Be
tween there and Chauny the enemy
was forced from a series of dominat
ing heights that he has relied on to
piotect La Fere. To the northwest
of Chauny equally important victories
gave General Humbert possession of
Guiscard and Maucourt after he had
forced the retirement of the enemy
from Mont St. Simeon and the Canal
du Nord. This latter action was a
desperate fight, for the German posi
tions were protected by a wilderness of
wire entanglements and by innumer
able machine-gun nests. Captured offi
cers said they had orders to retreat to
the region of Bethancourt, northwest
of Chauuy. There were Indications
that the Huns planned to make a stand
on a line through Ham, but the French
advance was so swift that their abil
ity to do this was doubtful. The
French First army was moving Irre
sistibly on Ham from Vesle and the
Canal du Nord.
At Fresnes the French and Ameri
can advance reached the old Hinden
burg line, had Ham practically flanked
and was rapidly approaching Laon.
The last named city has been one of
the most important of the German
bases In Picardy and the heart of the
present Hun operations. It Is a great
center of railways and highways and
Its capture by the allies, It was said,
must mean the further retirement of
the enemy.
—m—
The British In Picardy opened the
week by occupying Peronne after an
Australian force had captured Mont
St. Quentin in a brilliant operation.
A little to the north Haig’s men then
took Combles, Morval, Courcelette and
Le Transloy, and straightened out their
new line by advancing It to Molslans ,
and to the east of Neuville. Then, on
Monday, came a grand British smash
which wrecked the much-vaunted Wo
tan switch line of the Hlndenburg line,
from. Drocourt to Queant. Despite the
resistance of great masses of Infantry
and artillery, the British rushed for
ward on a ten-mile front and speedily
made a gain of some five miles, the
German losses being frightful. In the
succeeding days they kept up the drive
remorselessly, putting much of the Ca
nal du Nord behind their lines and ap
proaching within a few miles of Doual
and Cambral. These two cities were
so Important to the German defensive
system that large numbers of troops;
were rushed to their rescue and the
British drive was slowed down percep
tibly hy the end of the week, though It
was by no means stopped.
All through the week there were re-,
ports that many towns and villages'
back of the German lines In Picardy
were In flames and it was certain that
the foe were destroying great quanti
ties of supplies which they were not
given time to remove.
In the Lys sector, the salient west
of Armentieres, the German retreat,
under compulsion, continued steadily
and the British advanced as far as
Neuve Chapelle and Laventle, taking
a number of villages. The northern
part of this sector became of especial
Interest to Americans because the Yan
kees were there engaged In their first
battle on Belgian soil. These troops,
inter identified by General March as
the Thirtieth division of Tennessee,
North Carolina and South Carolina
men, captured Voormezeele and other
towns In the vicinity, and next day
pushed on further eastward. Thurs
day the British, presumably aided by
these same Americans, took Ploeg
steert village and Hill 63, dominating
points on the Messines ridge. By that
time the British, from Neuve Chapelle
south to Givenchy, had reached the line
they held before the German drive of
April 9 last, and east of Givenchy they
had occupied parts of the old German
positions.
—fc—
Altogether It was a highly satisfac
tory week on the west front. The
German military critics have given up
tiying to conceal wholly the truth of
the Hun reverses, but some of them
predict that the retreat will not go
much farther. The German crown
prince broke into print with an Inter
view in which he declared the German
Idea of victory now Is “to hold our
own and not allow ourselves to be
vanquished.” He said only the allies
were waging a war of extermination;
that the Germans wished to annihilate
none of their enemies. The Hun peace
offensive seems to have petered out
entirely for the time being.
The British government, aroused by
the sacking of its embassy in Petrograd
and the murder of Captain Cromle, the
British attache, has sent an ultimatum
to the soviet government at Moscow,
demanding reparation and prompt pun
ishment of the guilty and threatening
to hold the members of the bolshevik
government individually responsible
and to have them treated as outlaws
by all civilized nations. Meanwhile
the British are holding Litlvnoff, bol
shevik representative in London, and
his staff under arrest pending the re
lease of British officials who ware ar
rested in Itussiu.
Belated dispatches from Siberia tell
of the destruction of the bolshevik
army east of Lake Baikal by the
Czecho-Slovaks and say the Cossacks
are co-operating with the Czechs. It
appears that uninterrupted connection
has been established between the al
lied forces across Siberia all the way
from the Volga to Vladivostok and
that the vanguard of the Czechs has
Joined hands with General Semenoff’s
troops on the Onon river.
In ■ northern European Russia the
allies and loyal Russians have gained
further successes south of Archangel
and Inflicted severe losses on the bol
shevikl.
—1»—
On the Ussuri front In eastern Si
beria the allied forces have been driv
ing the bolshevikl northward, defeat
ing them In every engagement and In
flicting heavy casualties. The Ameri
cans under General Graves Joined in
these operations.
The suppression of the Social Rev
olutionists In Moscow is being carried
out with a heavy hand. About five
thousand of them have been arrested
and sentenced to death, and it Is said
they will be executed If their party
shows any further opposition to the
soviet government The streets of
Moscow are under the strictest mili
tary guard.
Details of the supplementary llusso
German agreements have been made
public. Germany promises to evacu
ate all occupied territory east of Li
vonia and Esthonla as soon as boun
daries are established, and to get out
of all other territory east of Germany
when Russia has fulfilled her finan
cial obligations, which must be with
in four months. Russia Is pledged to
fight against the entente forces in
northern Russia, and Germany prom
ises that Finland shall not attack.
Russia renounces Its sovereignty over
Esthonla and Livonia, but is to have
free transit to Reval, Riga and Win
dau.
An attempt to assassinate Nicolai
Lenlne, soviet premier, was made by
a girl In Moscow, but at last reports
he was still alive though In a serious
condition. Very likely his death
would be a godsend to Russia.

There Is not much to say of the war
on the Italian, Albanian and Greek
fronts. Small engagements are nu
merous, but no decisive operations have
been started lately. In Albania the
retirement of the allied line for a short
distance Is explained by the necessity
of preparing for winter by occupying
certain dominating heights. Austria
has not attempted anything Important
In Italy, possibly because she is too
busy trying to eettle her Internal trou
bles, or because of the call on her for
troops to help out the sorely-pressed
Germans In France. Several Austrian
divisions have been Identified on the
west front. Meanwhile the Italian
airmen, aided by American flyers, have
been doing a lot of bombing of Aus
trian towns, railways and naval sta
tions.
According to dispatches from Mu
nich by way of Geneva, Count von
Hertllng, the Imperial chancellor, re
signed Thursday, giving poor health
as the cause of his action.
From Cologne came the news that
the commandant of the Brandenburg
province had placed the province, in
cluding the city of Berlin, under mar
tial law In order to stop the “Invention
and circulation of untrue rumors cal
culated to disquiet the populace."
—m—
General March said last week that
more than 250,000 American troops
were landed in France during August,
and that up to the first of September
more than 1.600,000 had embarked for
the various fronts, Including those
sent to France, England, Italy and Si
beria. There has been no ofiScial men
tion of late of the First American Field
army, and- observers ft Franc# and in
England believe It Is being prepared
tor a great drive, of which the present
big offensive Is bat the preliminary.
—Ift—
ah preparations have been com
pleted for the registration of men be
tween the ages of eighteen and twenty
one and thirty-one and forty-five, un
der the new draft law. General Crow
der has called on the people to aid In
making the registration a complete sue
cess, and. so far as the older men are
concerned, has given assurance that a
very large proportion of them will not
be required to go to the front. The
young men, he and most others believe,
will be only too glad to get into this
greatest and most righteous of all
wars.
Spain has not yet come to the break
ing point with Germany, but another
Spanish vessel having been torpedoed
has decided to seize German Interned
ships without further parley. The
tone of the press there, and also in
other neutral countries, Is becoming
distinctly proally.
v —
American shipyards set a record
during August, turning out 66 ships
aggregating 340,145 dead weight tons.
Forty-four were of steel. The totn'
tonnage built for the shipping bnnn
has now passed the two million mark
British merchant vessels completed
during August amounted to 124,675
gross tons. The new construction In
the allied countries Is now well ahead
of the destruction by submarines.
