from fifty to sixty miles, . but each
time they have been driven back.
This is not surprising to military
men, as the Germans' have been com

of tho Petit Morin, and then over bare
uplands to the extremely strong
French position on tho right, it is
their only chance, however, and it is
expected they will strike and strike,

A flying squadron of seven cruisers

including the dreadnought Kongo and

On August ll, when everybody tn

attitude known at a c giferenco with
democratic leaders of congress.
. Preliminary steps also were takeu
by democratic senators today to read
just the pending $53,000,000 rivers and
harbors appropriation bill, against
which republican senators have etsi*
ducted a filibuster on ground that it
is framed on extravagant lines and
that the $100,000,000 war rovenuojhill

The president's principal objection

was inclined to agree with thia view
