Frankfort. April 6 (By the Associated Press). Frankfort was occupied without incident by French troops early to-day, and with the cavalry in the lead, followed by the infantry and the artillery, the occupying' forces pressed rapidly beyond the city. They met no opposition. By 10 o'clock the cavalry had reached Eckenheira (three miles north of Frankfort) . The en tire operation was expected to be completed during the day, The occupation takes the form of an extension of the Frenc lines around the bridgehead at Mayence. The extreme limits of the advance form a semi-circle similar to but larger than that of the original zone of occupation. The only German troops encountered GASOLINE A NECESSITY AS MUCH AS FEED FOR HORSE. in Frankfort by the French were the Schcrhcitswehr, or volunteers, who sur rendered. They probably will be dis armed and released. The French occupying force is esti mated to number from 15,000 to 18,000 men. It is composed largely of cavalry, with detachments of Infantry for occu pation of the various centers and artil lery merely as a precautionary meas ure. The neutral rone occupied presents no interest whatever from the point of view of military strategy, and hence the force has been limited to the num ber necessary for occupation alone. COUNTING ON ALLIES TO SUPPORT FRANCE Premier Millerand Confident That Great Britain and United States Will See Velocity of the Move. Paris, April 6. French soldiers to day occupy the German cities of Frank.fort-on-.Ma in and Darmstadt, 16 miles soirth.

Stirring scenes at Mayence jester day are described by Heri Bidroi, mili ary critic of the Journal des Bates, in n telegram to his paper. lie says that during the afternoon troop activity be gan, ami soon aif n trucks and field kitchens tairan moving eastward, ac companied by Moroccan troops with machine guns. I Chief interest in the situation, as evidenced by newspapers here is wheth er the allies will Mipport France, and to what extent. This query was put to Premier Millerand by the Kcho de I'aris lat night, the premier anwer ing: "England was victorious and so was France. I am confident every thing w ill work out perfectly." Asked who would pay the expense in cident to occupation, M. Millerand re plied: "Why, Germany, obviously, since it was she that, by her acts, obliged u to resort to coercion." Occupation of Frtnkfort, Uarrotiidt and other German cities in the neutral rone is generally endorsed by ?be jour rals of ail shades of political opinion. K is reogniaed the operation will be riky and burdensome, Critic of the premier, however, deplore the fact that the allies are im participants in the m'ement.
