Exploit of U-Boat Off
Cape Cod.
"We've got 'em on the run" was the
joyful cry of America as the news
came in of the victorious progress of
the alHed troops In the Soissons-Reims
salient, j?!?-z7:iLz
,z inameasure this was true, for the
Germang were being gradually
squeezed out of the salient, and there
was every reason for elation over the
splendid fighting of the allies. But to
hail the success as a great decisive
victory was premature and foolish.
Such running as the Huns did was
done only at the start of Foch's offen
sive, when they were taken by sur
prise. Their commanders quickly re
gained some measure of control, and
thereafter the enforced retreat was
conducted skilfully and slowly, every
bit of ground being bitterly contested
In order that as many guns and as
much supplies as possible might be
'saved. Realizing that his entire army
south of the Alsne was In grave dan
ger, the crown prince sent In more and
more of his reserves until 40 divisions
were engaged, and desperate efforts
were made to stabilize their lines of
defense. However, nothing was al
lowed to stop the steady forward
movement of the allies on three fronts
of the salient, and " the path of re
treat was narrowed day by day. All
of the territory yet held by the enemy
was brought under the fire of the
heavy guns, and the airmen In great
numbers flew over the region day and
night, 'working hnyoc -with their, bombs
and machine guns.
t: At the beginning of the week there
were' highly successful operations on
the west front of the salient. In both
of which the Americans played arivIm
portant part. At the tip of the Ger-.
man - advance" Chateau Thierry I was
taken by storm and a large section
north , and east of It was cleared of
Huns. Here . thousands ; of Germans
were, killed, other thousands captured,
and great numbers of cannon ' afid
quantities of supplies were taken.
From this point northward to Sols
sons the Franco-Americans swept east
ward until Neuilly St. Front was tak
en, Oulchy threatened, Soissons Itself
brought under gunfire and the very Im
portant railroad from there to Chateau
Thierry crossed at so. many places that
It could no linger be used by the en
emy. This drive, to be wholly suc
cessful, had to be carried to Fere-en-Tardenols,
through which ran the only
remaining railway which the Huns
ould rely upon to get their war sup
plies out of the way of Foch's pinters,
and before the week closed the French
and Yankees were moving steadily to
ward that town from the' west and
south. It must not be supposed that
their, progress was easy. The? Ger
mans counter-attacked repeatedly - and
fought brave and stubborn rear-guard
battles. The village of Epleds, for ln
8tance, af terming taken at the 'point
of the bayonet by the Americans was
recaptured" by: the' Huns, and again
won by the Yankees, who then ad
vanced their lines farheyond' It. 1
Some of; the fiercest, fighting !topk
place alongfthe Marne east of Chateau
-Thierry.. At first the Germans retreat
ed across the river so hastily that the
mevement amounted almost to a" rout.
From the heights 'of Jaulgonne, Barzy
and Passy, the American guns poured
a deadly hail upon "the fleeing foe,
many of whom,, throwing . away ptheir
rifles, sought to swim the rivers; se4
were drowned. - r .
"When Foch was secretly preparing
1 f Sr Tils' great 'ttratestc -attack he called
a strong force of English and Scots
troops down from the north, and they
quietly slipped around south of the
Marne toward Reims. At the ap
pointed time these seasoned fighters
hit the German lines southwest of the
cathedral city a mighty blow. In the
succeeding days, acting as the east
arm of the pincers, they pushed for
ward Into the sali&at from the Moun
tain of Reims toward Vllle-en-Tarde-nois
and Fismes. Their progress was
slower than that of the Franco-Americans
on. the west, for the country in
which they were fighting was much
more difficult. East of Reims the
French and Italian held their own
and even made some advance, though
the plan did not call for a drive by
. fa
When Foch's offensive was a week
old it appeared probable that Luden
dorff would attempt to make at least
a temporary stand on the half-circle
running from Soissons through the
outskirts of Oulchy, below Fere-en-Tardenois
and across toward the
Mountain of Reims. Competent ob
servers believed his troops were too
.disorganized to hold this line for long,
and that lie would be forced to fall
back to the Vesie river, which runs "at
fnost ue yest from Reims, Joining
thT Aisne near Soissons?" -
The main efforts of General von
Boehm, the immediate commander of
the Germans In the salient, we're di
rected to keeping open the roads of
retreat. He was given the assistance
not only of most of the crown prince's
reserves, but also of nine divisions
from the army of Crown Prince Ru
precht of Bavaria. Already he was
having great difficulty in feeding the
men he had there, and the additions
did little but stiffen his resistance and
add to his commissary troubles.
At the time of writing, the full scope
of General Foch's plans Is not re
vealed. He has the Initiative, and may
elgct to continue the offensive with
allhis strength In the effort to drive
the Huns beyond the Alsne and as
much, farther as they can be forced;
or he may find It prudent to hold them
at the Vesle and await the arrival of
more Americans. It Is a noteworthy
fact that 70 per cent of the . allied
troops engaged In the present battle
are French. A considerable portion
of the remainder are British and Ital
ians. If so much can be done with so
comparatively small a force of Ameri
cans taking part, ask observers, what
will happen to the Huns when a mil
lion Americans are In the fighting line
and another million at least waiting
their turn for action?, And this state
of affairs will be reached by October,
It is predicted."""" "
... tea
Parts and London are loud In their
praise of the quality and behavior of
the . Americans In the Aisne-Marne bat
tie, and the newspapers there relate
many Instances of their bravery, cool
ness and determination. They are ad
mittedly as fine troops as-ever were
seen, and even the least experienced
of them have no Idea of anything but
winning every fight they go Into.
Their marksmanship, both with the
rifle and with larger weapons, Is re
markable; their doggedness is tem
pered with an unquenchable humor,
'and their stamina Is such that at times
bodies of them fought for many hours
without food or drink, declining to
halt their advance to let the commis
sary catch up with them. These
splendid troops, with their gallant and
competent officers, have done their full
part In stopping the German offensive
and converting It Into an allied offen
sive, and If they are now called on to
stop and await the arrival o more of
their countrymen, America should rest
-satisfied, patient and proud. ' The
American casualty lists will. be. longer
and longer each day for a time, but
the bereaved ones may well take ex
ample by the proud; unweeplng grief
with 'which Colonel Roosevelt received
the news of the death. of his gallant
son, Quentinv : v A-
In Flanders the" British carried out
an Important operation that resulted
tin the capture of Meteren.. They haye
been devoting themselves to preparing
for the new offensive which, according
to the logic of the situation, Luden
dorff must undertake and which, ac-
;-'CordIhs'tjlt-eertsi probably?
:will be directed against some part of
the line held by the British. Such an
.offensive would be largely to influence
"public, opinion In Germany' and direct
attention away from the crown
prince's disastrous attempt on the
Marne. '"' ?
General Foch has not had to call
Into action the bulk of his reserves.;
In the midst of the biggest battle he
found time to order a swift and fierce
attack by the French along the Avre,
In the Montdldler sector. The posi
tions aimed at were feebly held by
tired troops that did not expect an
attack, and the objectives were gained
within a few hours, large numbers of.
prisoners being taken.
' ' tea
Rome received the information from
some source that the Austrians were
preparing a triple offensive against
Italy. This, according to the story, Is
to consist of a great land attack on the
Plave river line, a naval attack on
Italy's Adriatic coast and an extensive
counter-attack In Albania. The Ital
ian commanders have no doubt of their
ability to repulse any or all of these
attacks. In Albania their forces,
with the French, have kept moving for-,
ward and are now in very strong po
sitions. The threat of a serious naval
I operation by Austria seems most fool
