V/ashingtqn, Aug. 22.-An official dispatch from Switzerland made public today says that the art collections In the museums at Cologne are to be taken to Cassel and Brunswick, where they will be out of danger from allied aerial bombardments. The German newspapers are. asking that the art trc�3ures in the Munich museum be similarly safeguarded. LI tered into with a view nt consolidating our line, the last two days liave been relatively quiet on the Canadian front. For the time being it has resolved itself into a warfare tor positions. The enemy holc'i in force a number of very strong points and the country is exceedingly difficult. It is the old battlefield of the Somme of 3 91� from which the enemy retired in the spring of 1917 to the Hinden-burg line. Its defenses are practically intact and these include an elaborate trench system with fortified points of support of concrete and steel pill bo.xes. It is in fact a very different proposition from the open rolling couptry over which the great advance of a fortnight ago was made, while the network of wire ^nd permanent defenses have been little affected. Difficult Ground. The weather has eroded the trench system, creating a condition of ground exceedingly difficult tor the successful operation of tanks and without these, any considerable infantry advance can oiily be made with heavy loss. An apt illustration of the difficulties to be overcome was applied yesterday by (he brilliant action of the French troops in capturing SI. Mard-Les-Friof, the village stronghold which to that date had stood in tlie way of an attack on Roye. I^vom the west and over continuous heights the French fought their way to the station, just north of Uoye and had also obtained a strong foothold on Caesar's Camp to the immediate west. Hoyo itself lies in the valley of the .\vre, Hanked by hills. Pile of Stones. It is no longer a city but a iiile of heaped up stones. The Boclie lias seen to that. It yet has considerable strategic importance, as the pivot of the enemy's advanced defense in front of the Somme.. The Avro here i is a wide, marshy morass and an attack on St. JIard in this valley could only be carri'sd out over tlie various road3 leading into the viiiage and situated on the souUi side of tlie river. Tv/o previous attempts had been checked, owing to the concrete pill boxes concealed in the marshes. The attack opened ut two o'clock with a heavy concentrated bombardment and soon after troops advanced. � For an hour the battle hung In the balance, its western frontal attack being held up, but at the crisis storming parlies from Caesar's Camp to the north broke across the bridges on that side and soon were, bombine the Hard Nut Cracked. At the same time came the cheering news that another hard nut had been cracked four miles south of Roye, this being Beauvraignes? The French spirit is marveloMs. The French soldier is convinced that it is only a matter of months before the Boche' will be driven on to the Rhine. It was noticeable that tJie enemy oounicr battery work was weak and ineffective.
