Steady Advance . Washington, July 24.-The advance of the allied and American forces, around the Alsne-Marne salient, has been practically steady for the last t-svo days. General March, chief of staff, said today, despite the fact that 15 fresh divisions of German troops have been thrown into the fighting at Soissons, and on the line south of there. The Germans are fighting desperately to retain the single railway line re niaining in their hands, over which heavy material can be removed as they retreat. General March ^aid.

Pressure on Germans With the French Army in France, July 24.-(A3soi>iated Press)- Both sides of the pocket in which the Germans now are located, have been the scenes of the most violent attacks and counter attacks throughout tho past night and morning. New fluctuatioiis of the line have occurred but in all these they have covered tire allies who keep up an incessant pressure on the retiring Germans, who are endeavoring to cover the withdrawal of their troops from imminent danger. Southwest of Rhelms the Germans have shown their disappointment over their Inability to hold with their crack divisions their positions around Vrigny and have turned ail their available artillery on to the British and French who drove them out, but the enemy could not prevent a still further advance today. Hard Fighting. London, July 24.- (By Reuters Ottawa Agency.)-A dispatch from French headquarters reads ' as follows: "Some of the hardest fighting on the whole battlefield Is now raging on the new British, front astride the Ardreiu -Montagnerbe-Rheitns. The British arrived at tho point of concentration south vot the Marne on the 17th instant and attacked on the morning of the 20th on a five-mile front between the Southern edgo^ of Coverton Wood and the village of St. Euphraise. They were opposed by four .German divisions, the 86th, 103rd, 123rd and the 22nd, which had been engaged since the loth, and suffered heavily in an attempt to pierce the Italian front with a view to reaching the Mame and turning tho French position at Montalgne-Rheims. "Last evening the German resistance was most stubborn and the fighting wae persistent along the whole front between the .Marne and Vrigy which village, with the woods to the east, was captured by the British. The New Line. "The line today runs roughly alifng tho railway from Nanteuil to Chateau-Thierry. The Germane are using artillery on both sides of the Onrcq and their front is stuffed with machine SUFFERED TERRIBLE AGONY "Fniit-a-tives" Alone Gave Him Quick Relief Buckingham, Quo., Hay Srd, 1915.

DurRij the day, we advanced 2 miles in the region of Charteves and Mont St. Pere, capturing a number of'fortified farms. F^res were visible during the night at several points behind the enemy's front. The German stores or depots firpd by our guns were burning. "It is known that the enemy engaged between sixty and seventy divisions since the ir>th Instant, and a careful estimate reckons the total German caeualtles, killed, wounded or taken prisoner, at ISO.OOO. "Wind and heavy rain storms greatly hampered the activity on the main battlefield. During the morning it rained stspdily and a violent gale made the work of the aviators fm-possible, thus reducing the effectiveness of the bombardment. "The operation between Mont Didler and^Moreuil is interesting, because It gi\*es back to us our view over the Avre River which were lost early in April. Mallly-Rainal, SuivillerB and Aubvillers lie under the crests of the hills dominating the river valley and their capture means that -we occupy the intervenl^gv hills. .\ most important improvement of the line along the Avre has been effected."

Citizens* Lumber Co., Limited G6l ,-.,Mua n CO F IHEGOVnOOAY ' Ottawa, July 24.-Representatives of the railways are In confordnoo today with the government, and" Sir Honry Drayton, chairman of the railway board, in regard to the request of the transportation companies for increased rates, liecause of the coming Into effect on August 1 of the Mc-Adoo schedule of wages for all employes of railways. The railway officials claim that" the McAdooi schednle as It stands today means an increased disbursement for salaries of upward of $40,000,000 a year. They also slate that amendments to the McAdoo schedule, how under consideration, at WashluKton, if adopted, would add many mltllons to tho amouiK.the railways will have to pay employes during the twelve months period com-mencflg August 1. Under the terms of tho settlement offered the railway shopmen, it was provided that amendments to the McAdoo schedule would apply to Canadian railway> employes.

THe government is likely to be governed largely by the recommendations of the railway board. Announcement of the Increases in rates is not likely to be long deferred. It is considered likely that the' new rates will go Into effect on the same date the railway employes begrfn to get the benefit of the Increased wages.
