French and American fofcew this morning liiunohod nn' at tack against the German positions on both sides of the St. Mihiel salient. The attack was preceded by a barrage lasting twelve hours. The attack on the southern side of the St. Mihiel salient was made along a distance of twelve miles. The attack on the western side was made on a front of eight miles. There has been great concentration of Franco-American artillery and entente airplanes are operating in large numbers. The weather is fine. The attack made by the French and Americans was a most daring one and so far has been successful. British Take lore Towns LONDON, Sept. 12 British forces have effected a crossing of the Canal du Nord to the northwest of the town of Havrin court, Field Marshal Haig announced in his official report today. The canal line here forms the main defense of Cambrai on the southwest. A short distance to the north the British have pushed to the westerly bank of the canal, east and north of Mouevres, and established themselves there. t British troops have captured the town of Vermand, Attilly and Vendelles. all on the front northwest of St. Quentin, the field marshal also announced in his report. Rains Cause Drive Pause LONDON, Sept. 12. Eight weeks to the day and for the first time the gread allied offensive of Marshal Foch is at a vjr tual cause. True, both the British and French on isolated sectors on the front extending from Flanders fo the east of Soissons again have recorded advances, but yesterday witnessed no such progress by the allies toward strategic objectives as past days had brought them, before the rains turned the lowlands into impassable marshes and the badly worsted enemy rushed large reinforce ments to stop the gaps through which the British, French and American armies are threatening to filter and reck his entire military system. During the eight weeks that have passed the allied troops have cleared almost in its entirety the enemy-held territory from the Marne to the Aisne in the great triangle which had Chateau Thierry at its apex and Soissons and Rheims, respectively, its western and eastern anchor points; from Soissons to Arras, the old bulge westward to Montdidier and toward the doorstep of Amiens has all but been obliterated. Allies are now standing across a large portion of the old Hindenburg defence line and vistually are on the remainder of it, while to the north in Flan ders the deep sailents which threatened the English Channel ports have bent eastward and the enemy is expelled from the vantage points from which he had expected ultimately to make his drive to endeavor to cain the seaboard and thus cause a di version of the' transport service from England to southern France. WEEKLY REVIEW OF WAR The succession or hammer blows delivered by the allied forces under Field Marshal Foch along the Ger man lines from Rheims to Arras since July 18 have now well nigh complete ly flattened out the great bulges cre ated by the German offensives of the spring and early summer. Further still, the well co-ordinatad progress of the allies' attack has brought the allies to a point where they may well be able to strike a still more disas trous blow to the German defensive system In the west From Laon to Cambrai the Hinden burg line stood all last year in the way of allied armies seeking to drive back the enemy from northern France and Flanders. Little impression was made in that line except temporarily in General Byngs drive below Cam brai last fall. Already tn this sum mer's campaign, however, the line has been pierced on a wide , front along its northerly stretches by the British and within the past week it has been penetrated in Its southerly reaches by the French. It appears that Marshal Foch's plan may prove to involve the turning of the line on both its flanks at Cambrai and Laon. In the north the British have been for several -.lays iu a posi tion to deliver what might easily prove a vital stroke to the west of Cambrai, where they have halted at the Canal du Nord and made no move toward driving home the blow which the logic of the situation points to the Inevitable. On the western outskirts of the bastion of - St Gobaln, defending Laon, the French already at BariBls are in advance of the line they occu pied in 1917, and farther south, below the main bastion, are standing on ground which had not been in allied hands since 1914. Farther north they are before La Fere, whence an east ward drive would carry them north of the St. Gobaln massif. The process of closing in toward the Hindenburg line at the points where it bad not yet been reached was continued . rapidly .during Jhe week by both the French and the British. The British moved forward at an accelerated pace below the Cambrai-Peronne front and on that front itself they are close to the line. South of the Somme the French pressed on beyond Tergnler and moved up speedily along all the line opposite the front between La Fere and St. Quentin. On the Aisne there was little change toward the western part of the front, where the Americans and French are on the river, facing the Germans entrenched along the canal which parallels the stream. Farther east the Germans are giving up grudgingly the angle formed by the ,line trending off southeastward to ward Rheims, offering particularly stiff opposition to the Franco-American forces near Roman, between Re .villon and Montlgny-sur-Vesle. Since the beginning of the allied offensive July 18, more than 125,000 Germans have been made prisoner. Thousands of guns and vast quanti ties of war supplies have been taken by the allies, who in addition inflict ed heavy losses on the enemy In killed and wounded. Sept. 10 The Germans are at last making a serious stand just short of the series of positions commonly called the Hindenburg line. They have markedly stiffened their resist ance against the allied armies from the region of Arras to Rheims, but their efforts to ward off further en croachments into the territory they are holding have failed. The British have dug more deeply into the sector jsouthwest of Cambrai, capturing Im portant positions on the four mile front between the Havrincourt wood and Pieziere, while the French after sharp fighting are only a short dis tance west of St. Quentin and are at ; the gates of La Fere, Sept. 11. The British put down 'strong counter attacks and pressed on a little farther toward Cambrai. (The French are now dangerously ,near both St. Quentin and La Fere. Capture by the British of 76,000 pris oners and 750 guns in the last four weeks was announced by Field Mar shal Hale In bis order of the day. I1IERII0LZER NAMES HIS DISTRICT AIDS County Chairman K.

RETIREMENT IS AT AN END Enemy Evidently Expects to Stop the Allied Advance Along the Old Hin denburg Front Speculation Afloat as to Plans of Supreme Commander Foch Days Immediately Ahead a Crucial Period. Washington, Sept. 10. Dispatches received here from the battle fronts state that the Germans are now standing substantially in the positions they occupied before last March 21, when their greatest offensive was launched. The statement -in the official Ger man communique that our new lines" had everywhere been occupied is given only one construction here. Apparently it was intended to mean that the. retirement had come to an end and that the Germans expected to stop the allied advance along the old front. In that event, It was said, the light forces of the French, British and American armies will soon reach this defensive position and subsequent operations quickly show how Marshal Foch proposes to assail the problem that baffled the French and British general staffs the breaking of this advanced line of defense set up by the enemy on Belgian and French soil. It was evident frpm reports that the allied forces were still feeling their way forward carefully through the rear guard screens of machine gunners which still cover many por tions of the enemy's present fighting front. Behind this screen the Germans were believed to have reoccupled the old Hindenburg defenses, which prob ably have been repaired and supple mented so that they are again a for midable barrier. There is a feeling among some of ficials that the enemy is very likely to signalize his Intention to stand fast by striking back hard -at the ad vancing French and British forces, or even by an attack at some other point designed to relieve pressure rather than to achieve any decisive result In the way of capturing towns. On the allied side, it remains to be seen whether Marshal rocn pians a flankingf operation on a wide front to turn the enemy out of his new linos and keep him moving back or will continue to hit at weak spots all along the front. Opinion here is that the larger enterprise is the most probable, since virtually the entire American army is available as a fresh, hard-hitting ' force with which to de liver a coup aimed at the breaking of the German front. There is no doubt that many offi cers here reeard the days immediately ahead as probably the crucial period of the whole battle of 1918.

If the President is not an issue with the Republicans who are trying to ge Into office, we would like for our friend Gilbergof the Observer to explatn the antics ol his party at Columbus recently A (.omnibus corres:, (indent of the Cm cinnatj, under date of Sept. 10, recites a little incident that is entertaining. He writes: From a new source has come a new light on the reason of the neglect of the Republican state convention, held here recently, to place the picture, of Prest dent Woodrow Wilson in a position o nonor or to mention his name in the re- solut.on adopted by the party. Iioth these ommissions, which have aroused unfavorable comment from the Repub lican as well as from the independent newspapers, were at first set down as mere indications of thoughtlessness, but it now seems the contrary was the case Assertion has been made that the picture was not places before the dele gates because it was feared they would lecome wil lly nysterical in tlu ir anger and might smash the picture. The au thority for this rather startling statement on a matter that has aroused a great deal of comment is C. C. Philbrick, editor of a weekly publication here and former member of th.' state board of adinini stration, who is one of the very closest to former Governor Frank B. Willis. now close rnnuricK is to Willis is ndicated by the fact that his organ con lucted the canvass for Willis in Frank iu county during the primary, and the utterances in his journal are accepted here as reflecting the thoughts of the Willis organization. Later along when it became necessary for Willis to senil to ti e discard W. E. llalley, his pre-pri inary manages, Philbrick was one of the first be consulted, and hit word appar ently carried a great deal of weight. This is Philbrick's comment on the incident: " 'Pomerene complained that Presi dent Wilson's portrnit was not hung on the stage in Memorial Hall dur ing the Republican covention. "Malicious destruction of property constitutes a penetentiary offence, and such a crime would have been provoked by hanging Wilson's pic ture before the crowd. Wilson's effort to control congressional elec tions nas engendered bitterness. How could people of Columbu know that the President would hot under take to influence the campaign here between General Speaks and Cle ment Brumbaugh, as he already has in a dozen other sections, trying in this district to defeat for congress in war-time a brilliant veterans sol dier and elect a galvanized ham." HONOR CLEVELAND'S HEROES Plan to Grow Trees In Memory of Sol diers Who Fall In Battle. Cleveland. The city forestry depart ment has ndopted a plan whereby each Cleveland boy who gives his life In the great war will be remembered. As soon as tree planting time comes this fall a liberty oak will be planted for each boy killed in action or who dies as the result of wounds. The trees will be planted along North Park boui levard, which will henceforth be known as Liberty Row. Each tree will carry a bronze marker bearing the name of a soldier who has died. Teachers Escape Edict. Charleston, W. Va. Teachers ar engaged in a productive occupation and are not hit by the "work or fight" order, according to a ruling made by Provost Marshal General Crowder and received here by Superintendent M,. P. Shuwkey of the state department of schools. MAKE YOUR PLEDGE GOOD P. B. Beery, sperial agent of (he treas ury department, was in Celina Tuesday iu conference with County Chairman Weis of the war savings committee re garding the pledges to purchase stamps made by the people ot Mercer county, and both gentlemen called upon the newspapers to get their aid in placing the matter before the people. Mr. Beery is'auditing the pledges, and made it plain that the treasury department expects ful fillment of "all pledges to purchase war savings stamps. The first duty ot every person m ttiis county is to redeem the pledge to pur chase these stamps," said Mr. Beery. This pledge has the first call on the re sources of the individual, because the first duty of a citizen is to his country. The treasury department, through the Mercer county war savings committee, has record ol all pledges, and will check these with a view of investigating who have failed to redeem their so'emn prom ise to the government to purchase." The war savings campaign has gained great impetus throughout the state, and when the pledges to purchase are ful filled in Mercer county, its present per capita standing of $11.90 will be greatly increased and tins county join me more successful counties of the state. More than $60,000,000 worth of these "baby bonds" have been absorbed in Ohio to date. County Chairman Weis suggests that all redeem their pledges at the earliest moment, and thus prevent the necessity of a return call on the part of Mr. Beery, who then would be obliged to take action. POOR ADOLPH STEPS ON HIS OWN SORE TOE Listen to this wail from Adolph's Mer cer County Observer of last week. Some thing must be hurting the little man, and his readers are perhaps at sea and would like to know what is disturbing his patriotic soul. He takes himself so seriously we almost feel like laughing out loud. Whether he is coming or go ing we don't know, but he seems to have goose-stepped on his own bruised toe. Here is his latest eruption: "The Celina Democrat in a recent issue, under the head "Adjourning "Politics," gave the County Repub lican organization. The Democrat undoubtedly attempted to convey the impression that an Republican organization bordered on disloyalty. "We desire to remind the Celina Democrat that no political party has any monopoly at this time on patriot ism and loyalty, no matter what his recollections may be of the days of the sixties. "There is a great work ahead for the American people, Republicans as well as Democrats, and for the Republican party as an organiza tion. "President Wilson is not an issue this year. The issue is the winning of the war at any cost, and that cost at a minimum both as to life and wealth. Only last spring the call came for party organizations to get into t'-e work of selling war savings stamps. The Republicans of Mercer county completed their organization for that purpose, and it was put at the disposal of Chairman Weis. Can the Celina Democrat say as much of the Democratic organization? "This is no time for Republicans to lag; it is the time to be busy as never before." You Count in Only One Way Never, so much at now, has the individual counted for so little. Individual rights, individual privilege, individual responsibilities bave given way to the greater consideration, the welfare of the people as a whole. For nations, not peoples or races, have taken in hand the destinies of the world. The individual has been pre-eniptorily put aside. Whether liberty shall live or perish from the earth is for determination in the aggregate. It is not for any one man to say. 1 he Kaiser is soon to realize this. Hut there is one way in which you can count. One way In which you may still make yourself felt ihreathMt inn iivrm-iuiuro worm, You can make your little individual contribution to the cause of freedom, of world democracy, of permanent peace. You can buy a Liberty bond or a "baby bond." You may otherwise lie subordinated, effaced, shunted into comparative obliv ion and made to feel that you no longer count. Bnt here you can take your little place In the sun. It's a chance of a lifetime; the chance is yours. Don't miss it. Conversion of Liberty Bonds The privilege of conversion which arose in consequence of the issue of 4 oer cent bonds of the Third Liberty Loan will expire on November 9 next and under existing law can not be extended or renewed. Delay in exercising the privilege win rcsiuii in oveiuuriicniiig me uuuKing institutions 01 uie country and the Treas ury Department by making it necessary to handle all conversions at the last mo ment and may result in many cases in the loss of the privilege of conversion alto geiher. Holders of coupon bonds are strongly advised to excange tbem for registered bonds in order to protect themselves against the rik of loss, theft, and destruc tion of their bonds in any way. The banks throughout the country, as a matter of patri tic service, will doubt less all assist bon Iholders in converting and registtring their bonds. It Means You Mrs. Kate Ellis offers to the feminine fancy all that is worth while in trimmed hats and millinery. You will be con vinced if you visit ber store. San San for better hogs. Adolph, yonr readers might better un- erstand what you are driving at if you were to print side by side the article you complain of in The Democrat and the one appearing in the Observer the week before. Tne difference could then be noted. Of course it might spoil the ef fect of your tearful effusion above, but it would be enlightening. It sometimes appens, also, that evil is to whom evil thinks. We are glad to be reminded "that no political party has any monopoly at this time on patriotism and loyalty," but we can't quite catch what your "recollec tions may be of the days of the sixties. ' ' About the only recollections we have of the time was going to school from the old Ellis House when it was across the street from where The Democrat office is now located; that there was'a lot of fel lows who thought they could run Old Abe's war administration better than he was doing, and that our old dad had oc casion a couple times I j come up here from down in Dixie to look lor deserters from the army. Those were stirring times, Anolph, we are told. Again to the text. Adolph says, fur ther and rtith confidence, "President Wilson is not an issue." As he seems to be running the war the spokesman and the leading actor and a lot of Re publican politicians want to take the re- ponsibility on his hands by giviug him Congress and senate less in sympathy ith his handling the war, it looks like e was considerable ot an issue. Why it the Republican Publicity Associa tion, which is collecting fl, 500, 000 from the manufacturers of the country to take Congress away from the President, if he not an issue? Ihe Republicans expect to reap the vote of every pro-German, very disgrunted socialist and all the rest opposed to the President in his con- uctof the war. And he is not an issue? Ye gods and little fishes, what is it? As to the Democratic organization and he war savings stamp campaign, it does seem it was asleep and its partisanship t a low ebb. But we are not running it. The chances are, however, it will give the President its support by backing men for Congress this fall that are for his policies and his han Uing of the war. HE GRIM REAPER Perry A. Arbaugh, ex-postmaster and former well known resident of Cold water, died suddenly Wednesday after noon at the home of his daughter at Co mbus, O., where he had been making s home the past year. His remains will be brought here and taken to Macedon, where funeral servi ces and interment will take place Satur day afternoon. You read the rulings handed down by this and that official board; you read with something like a frown, the reprimand to those who hoard. You sav ' Ctd'm txxlikins! uodzooK! llieyre alwavs springing something new." But this yon seem to overlook the reprimand's addressed to you. You read the poster on the wall that tells how coin is in demand, if we would see the kaiser fall so hard he'll jar his native land. You sigh, "It takes some cush, in sooth, to put this mighty struggle through," and seems to overlook this truth the poster is addressed to you. The other fellow does his best, restrictions can't his ardor cool; he buys his bonds and st .nips with zest, and cheerfully obeys each rule. He profits by the public prints, which tells of stunts we ought to do; but you forget that all such hints were written out, my frit nd, for you. The fellow and his wife are ready to surrender all; their prized possessions, even life, they'll give up at the cojntry's call. And will you let the other gent give many things, while yon give few? Wake up ! The country's call is meant for you yourself for you for YOU ! LITTLE FOR THE FATHERS TO DO Council at its meeting last Tuesday evening accepted in due form the bid ot Seasongood & Mayer, of Cincinnati, for the $10,000 refunding and park bonds sold last week.
