Hill No. 304 to Fort Douiiumont. The
war olliee announcement this afternoon
says: "In the lighting west of the river

Bethincourt Salient Evacuated by
The French evacuated the Bethincourt
salient Saturday night and the Germans
on Sunday attacked with great violence
their new line from Avocourt to Cum
icres but were repulsed with sanguinary
losses. At one point, northeast of Avo
court, the Germans succeeded in entering
the trench trenches and from this posi
tion they were immediately ejected
through a counter-attack, according to
the French official .communication issued
last night. The communication said:
"In the Argonne our artillery concen
trated its hie on the enemy s coiniminiea
lions. Our heavy batteries during these
operations shelled a sector in the neigh
borhood where important troop gather
ings and columns on the march were ob
served in the region of Montfaueon and
Xnntillois. Xear Hill 283 we exploded a
mine which crumbled the enemy strength
for a considerable length and destroyed a
small post,
"To tlie west of the Meuse a violent
battle which lasted the entire day was
engaged on the whole of the front from
Avocourt to Cumicrea and even spread
to the eastern bank of the river.
"The premature evacuation of the
Hethinemirt salient which was carried
out last night has enabled us to es
tablish a continuous line, beginning t
the Avocourt corner and running along
the first woody slopes to the west of
Hill 304, then along the southern bank
of the Forges brook to the northeast of
Haueourt, and reaching our positions a I
little to the south of the crossing of the
roads of Hctliineouit-Esnes and Bethin-court-Chattancourt.
"The whole line was violently attack
ed by the enemy, but withstood the fierc
est onslaught. .
'On the front of Le Mort Homme
Cumieres the German attack met with
a sanguinary setback. The attacking
columns which delKmched in close for
mation from the Cumieres wood were
caught under the lire of our mitraille
uses and artillery and dispersed, leaving
liehind hundreds of bodies on the ground.
''.All attempts against Le Mort Ilomuie
were also repulsed with heavy losses.
"A simultaneous offensive movement
against our positions between the Avo
court wood and the Forges brook met
with fierce resistance on the part of our
troops which everywhere repulsed the en
emy. Finally, the enemy through an at
tack against one of our works to the
northeast of Avocourt at the southern
outskirts of the wood succeeded momen
tarily in gaining a foothold in our
trenches, but were thrown out at once
through a counter stack.

Mesopotamia. This attack is to be
made, according to the British plans,
against bannavjat, on the ligris, ta.

In the Austro-Hungarian Cabinet, is Re
port in London.
London, April 10. A dispatch to the
Morning I'ot from Budapest, says:
Count Tisa. the Hungarian premier.
and Baron Burian, the Austrian foreign
minister, are expected to resign. The
Tisa government is expected to fall ow
ing to the opposition of Austria-Hungary
and Turkey to the promised German plan
of establishing a customs union and eco
nomic federation between the central
powers and their allies.
"According to reports in Budapest.
lount lisza has already been summoned
to the royal palace and informed bluntly
by Kmpcror Francis Joseph that he would
be dropped unless he consented to tlie
scheme for a customs union. It is said
that Count Tisza stubbornly refused to
budge, and it is expected that when the
ministry falls he will take up the lead
ership of the opposition to any ministry
supporting the customs union project."

Washington. D. C April 10. Over

Secretary Baker, were summarized in tne
following statement:

General Funston yesterday. the offer

Chihuahua last week.
General Pershing's report did not pass
over the telegraph lines, however, but
was transmitted via aeroplane and wire
less routes to Columbus. The report was
sent from some part of the field of oper

held here.
The drivers of the aeroplanes that vis.

General Pershing said some supplies
had been purchased at Chihuahua and
that there appeared no disposition on the
part of those with stores to withhold
their goods, but that the limited amount
of supplies at Chihuahua at present made
it almost impossible to get provisions.
Two Infantry Battalions Were Sent from
Fort Bliss.
El Paso, Tex., April 10. Local olfl
ciaJs in F.l l'aso made representations
yesterday to the military authorities and
two infantry battalions were sent from
Fort Bliss last night to act as reserves
to the patrols who are on guard every
night in the principal streets here. The
police officials said they fear trouble with
Mexicans in Juarez.
Tlie one real basis for any opprehen
sion here that is discoverable is the fact
that a number of Villistas and other
representatives of the anti-American fac
tion in Mexico are spreading the wildest
reports among'the peons and soldiers m
Juarez in the hope ot causing an out
break. Juarez is seethinc with the weird
est stories of the hostile intentions ot
the Americans and rumors of great vic

won by Villa. The Carranza officials
are doing their best to suppress these
That the alarmists are not receivin:

new leader who was to take, his place.
Few, very few, have been spiritual lead
ers like unto Moses and Joshua in abil
ity, in character, in obedience to God and
in the splendid results achieved. The
lesson, however, that we wish to draw
to-day is that there is a similarity in
this respect, that churches change their
pastors at times and we believe it is
often for the best good of all concerned.
Xo one man sees all accomplished that
he desires to see in any church that he
works and prays for; no one man can
satisfy all the people. Even a Moses
failed to do that with all, for there were
those who ever continued to criticise and
to murmur. If a pastor is what he ought
to be he is glad to see some Joshua suc
ceed him who may lead on the people to
a Canaan of success. Hut to do this
there is need not only for a chosen Josh
ua, but the people must be united in
their work under him. they must have
faith in their leader and be ready to fol
low him; and, most important of all,
they mnst be willing to obey ( Jod. Many

Hitch with Polishers
Quincy, Mass.. April. 10. The hopes of
the general public that the differences
between the granite manufacturers and
the several branches of workmen had
been settled by the manufacturers agree
ing before the state board of arbitration
for a five-year bill, were dashed to tlo
ground, when it was given out that the)
committees from the manufacturers and
polishers' union, who had been in session
during Friday afternoon, had failed to
agree and at adjournment were dead
locked. The general public had been led to be
lieve that everything bad been settled
with the exception of a few minor mat
ters between the manufacturers and pol
ishers. Apparently, however, things hud
not been settled.
The two committees, which met Friday
afternoon, struck a snag on section 4.
This provides that every journeyman
was to receive an increase in wages, ac
cording to the increa: in minimum rate.
I'nder the old bill of prices the mini
mum wage for the polishers was $SM.t
per day. It was said, however, thnt fully
40 per cent of the polishers were receiv
ing from 50 to 7.1 cents per day ocr and
above the minimum wage. The new
minimum wage calls for $4 per day,
which lias been agreed upon between tha
manufacturers and polishers.
The trouble arose, however, over, the
polishers demanding that they should re
ceive the same relative increase in daily
wage under the new- bill as tinder the old
bill. In brief this meant that if th
minimum wage was $4 fully 40 per cent
would tie entitled to receive a daily wage
of from $4.50 to $4.7."i per day.
This the manufacturers objected to.
They submitted the following clause t
cover this point.
"A workman once having accepted pay,
his rate will be established and can only
he chanced by mutual consent between
the employer and employe. The rate in
no case to he below the established mini
mum rate." v
