In the meantime, the enemy appears to be movlno In a considerable number of troops. LINE ENDANGERED Paris, Aug. 13.-The furious counter-attacks which the Germans continued to launch yesterday are attributed here to their Imperative need of holding tho Chnulnes-Roye-Noyon line/ the loss of which would amount to 'a disaster for them. The counterattacks wero all beaten nlthough the enemy reached ground with which he was perfectly familiar. 650 GUNS London, Aug. 13.-The number of guns captured by the allies In the Pfeardy battle now has reached 6E0.

The Massif was the hinge of the old German positions In the whole angle In the Noyon region, and now that this hinge has burst the entire angle must yield to the relentless allied pressure. CHECKED AT NOYON. With the French Army in France, Aug. 13.-(Noon.)-(Associated Press.)-German forces have momentarily slowed down the rush of the French toward Noyon.

PROCTOfi, District Passenger Agent, Calgary. Gorman trenches are still doop enough to afford (ho enemy the best opportunity he ha.i liad of clinging to tho ground ttom which he Is to bo evlo.lnd since lie left his line in the vallnv of the Avro. It is necessary for tho l''rrnrh to bring up their guns before the attack can be resumed. Tho enemy in busy putting the m03s covered trenches into battle condition so as to enable him to attack tor tho moment. Consequently there has been a pause In the struggle throughout today. The Germans, however, are showing signs of determination to reninin whore they are as long as possihlo or at least \intli they have had ihiu' to withdraw their material from the threatened sector. Today the French are in touch with a continuation lino and our progress was opposed, not by the usual fl;'e. hut by regular hivrrages. The enemy's line of resistance, therefore, aji-parcntly has been reached. Nevertheless the I'^onch continue to advan-^'o at various points in the line and both bastions of Hutier's front at Royo and at the Massif ot Lasslgny are now insecure. Noyon To Be Under Fire. I-;ondon, Aug. IH.-In tho region of Des Ijosges, soutli of Itoye, the French this afternoon arc consolidating their line. They hold the town but have not regained the woods beyond. N'oyon will come under tlio fire of the French guns as soon as the artillery can be moved up. Then road transports on the whole network of highways around Loges will become a difficult problem for the Germans. CK EifJ.Ml CONOElCROieS Calgary, Aug, 13.-After a stormy meeting with Hon. T. W. Crothers, minister of labor, Calgaiy trades unionist j passed the following resolution: "That this mass meeting ot Trades Unionists held In Calgary August 12, strongly condemn tho, Hon. Mr. Crothers, minister of labor, lor tho flagrant abuse of his position as a cabinet minister in touring the country making statements wliich would appear to be nothing more or loss than an attempt to prejudice the case of the Postal employes, and divert public opinion before the Civic Service commission has even commenced the investigation agreed upon." PLEAD POR LIFE OF THOS. MOONEY ' Washington, Aug. 13.-A committee representing International Labor Unions called at the White House today and presented a memorial asking President Wilson to intervene in behalf of Thomas J, Mooney, under sentence of death in California, for connection with the Preparedness Day parade bomb explosion In San Francisco.

Tho enemy lie so valiantly vanquishiMl last niglit wa-i a terrific wind and rain storm that swept over tlit- city at nine o'clock and all hut staniijcded tlio 1000 people who had assemlileil in tho Chantanqua tent to listen to tho captain's eloquence. Good Music. There had been no sign of a storm when the big crowd-entered the tent. The Warwick male quartet had en. tertalned the peopo tor an liour with tlieir excellent musical programme, including songs and instrumental numbers. They 'went over the top" strong witli their numbers. It was nearly nine o'clock when Capt. Briggs was introduced. He had been speaking less tiudi five minutes wiion the storm swept up. Tho wind roared outside, and the big tent rocked and shook and rolled, but did not budge from its firm moorings. Then the liglits went out, and tho crowd started for the exits. Capt. Briggs iu stentorian tones, aided by Mayor Hurdle's equally stentorian tones from the rear of the hall, had the effect of somewhat calming tho crowd, and when the pianist of tlio Warwick quartet started to play patriotic airs, tho audience caught tho spirit, resumed their scats, and while tlie darkness lasted, sat and sang lustily the choruses of the patriotic airs. When the lights came oti, tlio wind had died down somewhat, but the rain was coming down in torrents. Capt. Briggs resumed liis lecture, but the nvln made a noise like thunder on the canvas roof and all but drowned his voice. Ho bravely kept up. iiowover, and for an hour it was a battle between tho thunder of the rain, and tho eaptaln shouting at tho lop of his voice. I'Tnally tlio tiiunder died away, ihe rain grew less torrential, dropped to a drizzle, ceased altoge-tlier, an(^ left the captain the victor. Captain's Eloquence. �WlieUier it was that the dramatic moments of the storm had added emphasis to the captain's eloquence, the crowd remained tense for more than an hour afterwards, listening to the sound, vigorous of tho soldier on the topic of "Playing the Game." The captain's speech radiated wholo-somoness throughout, was a sound, vigorous pronunciation of the true principles of life .conduct, and culminated in the stirring message of the American nation's intention to stand fast by the side of the Canadians, and the other allies, to the end of the struggle. The game of life, said Capt. Briggs, as the game ot war, needed courage, but It needed more than courage, It needed the qualities that command success, strength ot body, of mind, and of moral principles. At times ho rose tc great heights of eloquence In his enunciation of the great principles of moral conduct, and declared tliat only the nation that hud Individuals of strong moral character, as well as individuals ot strong piiysical and mental qualities, could hope to survive. The daily grind ot life, as tho dally grind ot this war. he said, was really provlnfe' to be a blessing, for the manner in which It disciplined the people, and strengthened Uieir moral fibre. Ho landed the part women played In the war and in lite, and omphatically declared his hollet that every woman should learn a trade or profession and bo as Independent as man. Capt. Briggs paid an eloquent tribute to the hDPoea of tho rank and file, those gall.ant men who unhonored and unsung, fought face to face with dqath, that freedom might live. He followed tliis up with a groat tribute to Canada's part In tho war, and said he was proud that his own country had now come to a realization of what the great war meant, and was taking her stand side by side with those that struggled for tho freedom of civilization. \ Afternoon Program The Chautauqua made its initial bow to the public yesterday afternoon iu Its now and commodious tent on 7th Street and 4th Avenue. Tho reputation that it attained tor Itself lust year ha-j followed It wllli tho result a goodly crowd was there for tho opening iKirformance, After the singing of tlie national anthem and a patriotic prayer by Rev, C.
