Paris, June 9. The fall of Fort Vaux, with its gallant little band of defenders is deeply regretted, ' but public opinion is not discouraged. The withdrawal of the French line to the inner defenses of Verdun on the right bank of the Meuse, which was forecasted by military writers i a natural consequence of the capture of Vaux, has not yet taken place. The French have resisted the furious and repeated efforts of the enemy to compel this retirement. Violent on slaughts, both in the Thiaumont re gion and on the trenches in the vicin ity of Vaux, were made by the Ger mans in the last twenty-four hours, but according to the latest reports re ceived by the French war office, all of these attacks were repulsed. By a week of uninterrupted attacks, in which it is said a number of divisions were destroyed, the Germans have advanced their lines about one mile. They have taken the southern part of Caillette wood, part of the Chapi tre wood, Damloup village and now Vaux fort. In past wars the enemy's progress on the right would have com pelled the French to fall back auto matically from the Douaumont-Thiau-mont lines, but under the present con ditions, it has been found that such a saw-toothed front can be held. The if T Forethought. ' People are learning that a little forethought often saves them a big expense. Here is an instance: E. W.

Its guns sweep the line of the crests running from Vaux to Douau mont and its seizure will be a hard task which will entail desperate fight ing and heavy sacrifice.!. PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN LEAGUE SATS CHILL WAS RIGHT IN RECENTLY HANDED DOWN DECISION.' BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Chicago, June 9. President John son, of the American league, has sus tained a decision of Umpire Chill in the Boston-Cleveland game last Sat urday, which it was said today estab lished a precedent for plays in which an umpire interferes with a base run ner. Third Baseman Turner, of Cleveland, after making a hit, round ed first base and collided with' Chill twice. He then stopped and walked to second base, where he was touched by the Boston second baseman. He was called out at first by the umpire, but after a conference with Umpire Dineen, the decision was reversed and Turner was allowed to return to first base. Boston's protest was disal lowed by President Johncon. The case was unique and is not covered by the rules. President Johnson also dismissed a Washington protest against a home run decision at Detroit Sunday, which was covered by ground rules.. The decision allowed a home run on a ball which struck in the field and bounded over ropes into the bleachers. Just received shipment of Ladies Dresses, in plain; and fancy voiles,.

We could see that there were still many fam ilies living in the town, but things in general were in a deplorable condition. The one general store had about one- third of a stock of goods, many buildings that had once been large business places were now In ruins, engines and freight cars wrecked beyond repair lying on the side tracks. We made camp the second night out at Mormon lake, arriving there at 6 p. m., having covered 60 miles that day. This lake is about six miles south of Casas Grandes. , . We left Mormon lake next mominr at 7 a. m., camped at noon at the U. S. camp at Galena.

The asso ciation has been presented with Pen sacola's side of the case, and an ut tempt will be made to hava both Mo bile and Pensacola as points of ter minus long the gulf coast. The delay is caused by the fact that the Montgomery delegation arrived in Flomaton last Tuesday, a day be fore schedule time, and not waiting for the Pensacola delegation, went to Brewton. The importance of the road to Pen sacola a stated by A. L. Boorse, pres ident of the Birmingham Automobile association on a recent risit to this city, is that it will open a field of tourist travel all the year round, not only out of Montgomery, but from Birmingham, and other points north. TERSELY TOLD. J A through sleeping car service will be established between Pensacola and New Orleans and Asheville on June 17, according to announcement made yesterday by local officials of the L. & N. railroad. The change will make it possible for parties leaving Pensa cola to connect with the car at Floma ton and go direct to Asheville with out change. The service was estab lished to afford better accommodation for the increasing summer vacation ists to this popular resort. George' W.

He replied, "beans, gold-fish and fig newtons." The older drivers on the train had tacked the name of gold-fish on canned salmon, and they call the hard tack fig newtons. We reached El Valle that evening at 6:50, covering 71 miles for the day. Here we went up the river after supper and had a good swim in the stream. We left El Valle at 7:15 the next morning and reached Las Cruces at 4:40 p. m., covering 33.1 miles. It was on this stretch that we passed through "Snipers Canyon." This canyon is about ten miles south of the camp of El Valle and is the roughest stretch of road to be encountered on the wholeline of communication. The roadway runs between two mountains, the sides of which are several hundred feet high in places. This is known as El Valle can yon, but the boys of the truck trains have renamed It "Snipers Canyon" be cause of the numerous attacks made on the trains by snipers. Two shots were fled at our train by a sniper, but no one was hit, and after the guard stood several minutes ready for another attack, without further in cident we reached Las Cruces. That evening while filling my water bag down at the river I noticed two soldiers each picking a duck. They told ma they had shot them with their rifles.

CANNING GIRLS ENTHUSIASTIC FOR 'S I FINE CROP OF TOMATOES, AND; MT! IDVNV TANDRTTM RF ' MISS LONNY LAP DRUM RE-j PORTS THAT STTPPI.Y OP P. A 'MS SUFFICIENT. With the time for canning near at hand the work of the home demon stration agent, Miss Lonny Landrui, becomes more practical than at other times. In speaking of her work last week to The Journal yesterday, Miss Landrum stated that a great need is felt now for actual work, and that she had given demonstrations on Mon day at Bogia, and Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday held classes in the schoolhouse at Bratts, giving lessons in domestic science, and distributing the weekly supplementary bulletins. In discussing the tomato crop to the canning club girls, Miss Landrum j stated that in spite of many hard- j ships and setbacks in the way of late cold, bugs, and even gophers, which had attacked the crop, very few had been lost, and those who were losers set out again bravely and planted peas and corn, attempting in some way to recover their damages. With the season for canning and the crop nearly ripe, much difficulty has been met in the lack of cans. The original plan was to get the cans from the Molino Canning Factory, but Miss Landrum stated that as late as last week they had notified her that the cans could not be procured. Arrange ments were then made for the Ray Hardware company of Pensacola for a sufficient number of cans, and it is expected that no loss will be sustained on account of the failure to procure cans on time. cording to a Central News dispatch, today, from the Italian capitaL A Reuter dispatch from Petrograd, today, reports the continuation of the Russian successes in Volhynia and Galicia.

London, June 9. Americans domi ciled here who are subject to the in come tax, must sell to or deposit with the British government their Ameri can securities under penalty of an extra two shillings tax. This infor mation is given to the Associated Press today by an official of the Amer ican Dollar Securities company. The ruling holds whether the securities are held here or in America. The tax of two shillings, added to the in come tax, will apply to Americans who have resided here long enough to become subject to the regular in come tax, the incidence of whiih will be followed except that no abatement will be granted on American securi ties which appear on the govern ment's lists. If American securities are deposited with the government only the usual income tax with the ordinary abatements will be charged, but the government prefer to pur-.-hn the seci:s,'t'.es outright. In the event that Americans resi dent here deposit their American se curities held in the United States, the government will collect the interest and pay it to the owners in sterling. American residents holding such securities in America may either de posit them with or 6ell them to the government through the agency of J. P. Morgan & Co., in New York. It is not unlikely that when this ruling becomes generally known there will be an exodus of wealthy Ameri cans living in England. The Ameri can embassy and consulate have been besieged of late by American resi dents seeking information on thts point, many of whom threaten to de part from the country unless the gov ernment makes an exception in their favor. A member of the dollar securities committee who discussed this matter today, was very positive that all resi dents subject to the regular income tax will be liable for the penal addi tion unless they dispose of their American holdings. Residents who are now liable to a tax on unearned income will be compelled to pay five shillings in the pound while those to whom the supertax applies will pay still more unless they meet the gov ernment's demand.
