Blame Losaes on Tank* Amsterdam, Sept. 19.-The Frankfort Zeitung's correspondent telegraphs the following under date-nf Sept. 16: "The Franco-American attack at St. Mlliiel ia now seen to have been a carefully planned undertaking of considerable magnitude. The number of attacking oiiemy divisions is not yet known for certain, but we know that our losses in prisoners were due to the extensive use by the enemy of tanks. More'than 1,000 irmore^ cars of all sizes participated. "One of our divisions counted in its sector aldne 60 large and 40 small tanks. Troolps who bold out stoutly in their positions are always liable to be surrounded by this mobile arm." Germany on Defeneive With the American Forces in Lorraine, Sept. 19.-(Associated Press).- Bntrenched in the second line of the Hindanburg system, the Germans along the front southwest of Metz appear to have accepted the new situation. ~ The tactics they are employing are wholly defensive ones. The Germans are carrying out a halt-hearted.and seeming perfunctory bbtabardmeht of the Franco-American lines. Kven challenges by patrois are refused by the enemy, except where a conflict is inevitable. Berlin Report. Berlin, Via London, Sept, 19.-^Af-ter fluctuating fighting on the front between Gouzeaucourt and Hargicourt yesterday, says today's war office report the towns of Epehy and Ronssoy remained in th^ enemy's hands. Further south, the German positions were penetrated by the Australians, but after hard fighting the latter were brought to a halt west of Bellecourt and BeUlngis. French Cormnand Ridge. , . With the French Army in Prance, Sept., 19.-Gen. Mahgin's army attacked along the front northeast of Sols-sons today ai)d captured the Colombes farm on the plateau just east of Sancy and south of the point where the Cheniln des Dames branches off from the road leading from Soissbns to Laon. A strong counter attack led by grenadiers of the Prnissian Guard was repulsed by the -French, who drove iixe enemy back of the road leading from the plateau of Ange-Ga^diene td the Colombes farm. This road is less than one-half mile from the Chem-in-des-Dsimes.' This snocegf puts the French In possession of part of the Importajit plateau of Ango-Gardiene, which commands the ridge along which runs 'the famous "ladies* way" for a considerable distance. It also drives deeper the wedge south of the Hindenburg positions in the Str>Gobain region and facilitates operations in the direction of Pinon, which was held by ' the Fi-ench until the German offensive la'st May. The fighting in this region has been most severe during the past ;few days. A glimpse of the action around the Colombes farm obtained from' a posint giving a view of the ChenUn-des-Dames and Port Malmaison, as well as the plateau, to the south, on which the farm is s|tuated, gave an Idea: of the tremendous task Gen. Mangln's men have undertaken. The soldiers could be seen T)ounding from wiell hole to shell hole and from trench to trench. Prisoners are now complaining that they are frequently left in the front line to shift for themselves. Rarely do their officers stand by them when they a,re attacked, they .say. It. of ten' happens that machine gun crews are (prdered to hold positions and diBcover. some time afterward that the troops behind them have abandoned the field. 'Ilife Day's War Summary # (By the Aseoclated Prete) / THB BRITISH TROOPS In desperate fighting are plunging furlher Into , the Hindenburg line no�th of St. Quentln, while west of Cambral they hare withstood vicious counter-attacks. The enemy is making every effort to retain his positions on the .W-mllo front and to check the new allied moTement which threatens St. Quentln and Cambral. DESPERATE RESISTANCE Juat how serious was the menace to the security of thft Hindenburg lino by the British thrust north of St. Quentln is shown by the strong counterattacks the Germans have made against the British lines from Gou/.eaucourt to the Arras-Carabral road, thus extending the battlcline nearly 12 miles northward. On the front attacked Wednesday the British are pushing ahead BgainBt bitter reslBtance toward tho St. Quentin-Cambral highroad, railway and canal, three Important enemy defense lines. From Lempire to Pontruet the Gormana have been hurled from the forward lines of the Hindenburg position. The British at Lemplro are four miles from Lecalelet. and .within one mile of the highroad and the canal. On a short front west of St. Quontin the French are working steadily toward the town and are on the outskirts of Dallon, two miles from St. Quentin. German counter-attacks at Trescault and Moeuvres, southwest and west of Cambral, were preceded by an intense artillery activity. At these points tile Ge/mans were y.KrJed back with heavy losses. The enemy entered the British trenches a:t �;fme points, but was immediately ejected. -- BULGARIAN FLI;GHT The Bulgarian retreat from the Serbo-Greek border is reported to be in the nature of a flight and the enemy is burning stores and villages in his path. The allies have captured additional prisoners and war material, which have npt-yet been totalled. A score or more Serbian villages have been reconciuered and the Bulgarians, have been driven beyond Rasimbey, 6n the Cetna river, 15 miles southwest of Prllep, the Immediate objective. It is not unlikely that they will continue their retirement, at least to the important road running east and west through Prllep, Not only did the allies succeed in pressing tlie Bulgarians' back to the Prllep, but a complete re-adjustment in tho enemy lines In Macedonla'and Albania from the Adriatic to Salonika has been made Inevitable. v The British and French successes along the St. Quentin line show that Field Marshal Foch has pinned down large numbers of the enemy forces in widely separated parts of the line. The Germans are forced to man heavily their lines from Jefore Metz clear dowp through the Lorraine and Vosges sectors, iwhlle there is always a very real threat at his vital positions north of Laon. In the meantime, the line from Rhelms to Verdun alway.s presents Itself as an inviting field for an allied offensive. IN SIBERIA Reports from Moscow say that the Bolahevikl forces are retreating on the northern and southern fronts. On the north, they are being forced back by the entente allies, while the Czecho-Slovak armies along the Volga are also advancing. It is reported that the Czecho-Slovak forces have taken the city of Perm.

About 40 men are included in the striker's' list and their demand is for an increase in wages of 20 cents a ton.

A begin'ning having been made with a notice to the Humberstone company that Its employees want - a raise' figuring out to 33 per cent, bvar their present rates, It is antlo(0�ted that similar action will be taken in the case of other mines in the district and the strike is taken as indicating what is likely to beoonie a, general demattd in the ESamonton coal field.
