CENTS r Stronghold Thousands Slain on Both Sides As Teutons Try to Regain Hill Number Sixty CARPATHIAN FIGHTING HAMPERED BY FLOODS London April number sixty dominating an area to the southeast of Ypres continues to be the storm center of the western front with the British clinging tenaciously to the ground taken by assault last Saturday Coun ter attack after counter attack has been so far successfully repulsed but the British hold is still disput ed by the Germans and the end of the lively and costly fighting is not yet in sight The British loss es have not been announced but they are estimated at well over 2000 The Germans are believed to have lost over 4000 men The French drive in the direction of St Mihiel is about the only other significant move in the west FLOODS HALT BATTLE The condition of the ground both In the east and west is now being directly reflected in the local opera tions The situation along the en tire front is for the moment appar ently at a standstill floods having impeded military activity in the Car pathians to a large extent while practically nothing has been heard of movements in Poland On the other hand fine weather has prevailed in the west for some days and barring a heavy storm will become harder daily a condition which should cause increased activ ity on each side LOCAL VICTORY The British press concedes that the taking of Hill No 60 is largely a local matter but it considers this engagement an important step for ward and a great relief to the town of Ypres so long under bombard ment The Germans in possession of this hill were not only above the town but they threatened the Brit ish lines in the vicinity of St Bloi The taking of this hill therefore re duces the inconvenience of the Ypres Calient strengthening the British lines to the south gives an advan tageous position for further effort and renders the German offensive in quarter difficult FAMOUS CmCKASAW IXDIAJf OFFICIAL DEAD British Lose Submarine in a German Bay

German governments criti cisms of the foreign polieies of the United Slates is given in the reply which the administration gave late yesterday to the memorandum submitted by Count von Bcrn storlY the German ambassador The reply is a comprehensive lenial of the allegations and re jection of Hie suggestions put forth by the Berlin government the von Herufitorft memorandum The note flatly denies that the United States has yielded any of its rights or otherwise acquiesced in British interference with legitimate American trade with Germany KMHARGO UXXEUTKAL II contends that it would be an un ncutral act to prohibit the exporta tion of arms for the reason that such nn embargo would be a discrimina tion in favor of the Germans who cannot obtain American supplies and against the allies whose control of the seas enables them to trade with the United States The note ignores the suggestion in the Von Bernstorff memorandum that he United States shut off the trade n war munitions unless Groat Brit ain permits America to supply food o Germany Altho the reply is signed by Sec retary of State Bryan it bears indls Mitable evidence of composition in the study of Woodrow Wilson Wii jsonian Is the phraseology Wilsonlan the atmosphere of dispassionate equa bility and calm selfpossession which pervades the utterance Even the presidents evident opinion that the policy of the United States in

with sincere regret Unit in diKonsHing the sale and exporta tion of arms by citizens of the United Stites to the enemies of Germany your excellency seems to be under the impression that it was within tho thokD of the government of the United Stales notwithstanding Us professed neutrality and its diligent efforts to maintain It in other par ticulars to inhibit this trade and that Hi failure to do so manifested an unfair attitude towards Germany This government holds as I believe your excellency Is aware and as it is constrained to hold in view of the present indisputable doc trines of accepted international law that any change lu its own laws of neutrality during the progress of a war which would affect unequal ly the relations of tlm United States with the nations at war would bo an unjustifiable departure from the principle of strict neutrality by which It has consistently sought to direct Its actions and and I respect fully submit that none of the circiinstances urged in your excellencys memorandum alters the principle involved The placing of an embargo on the trade in arms at the present time would constitute such a change and bo a direct violation of the neutrality of the United States It will I feel assured be clear to your excellency that holding this view and considering Itself in honor bound by it It Is out of the question for this government to consider such a
