British Headquarters, in France,
June 29 (Via London July 2.) i
This week the British front from
the Ypres salient to the Somme is
alive with the most furious gun fire,
in thunderous contrast with the quiet
spring months, when the world was
asking why the British were inactive.
Battery after battery of guns have
been arriving from London and have
been tried out, and this week the cur
tain was lifted on an exhibition of
their power. The proportion of large
caliber guns, which are so useful, is

trench the village of Beaucourt-Sur-Ancre,
which when last seen had
been unharmed, with its green shade

wreck of fallen walls with only a few
stumps of trees standing, and still
shells belabored the ruins.
Becomes an Inferno.
All the country between Donchy-Au-Bois
and the Somme -was noted
for quiet and where one might not
hear a gun fired for hours had be
come an inferno and the winding river
Ancre, which flowed past Alberton,
the British side, and past Miramount,
on the German side, among ridges
and hills gleamed through the nimbus
of shrapnel smoke.
Whenever one went forward the
scream of shells passed overhead, and
one might judge the caliber by the
nature of the explosion. Those big
white balloon-like puffs over the first
line ground trenches were heavy mis
siles from trench mortars, and those
huge black spurts, colored by the
earth, were eight or ten-inch howitzer
shell fire, fired into the second line
trenches and still bigger spurt, aimed
at the redoubt, . was a fifteen-inch

built for army purposes to carry the
heavy traffic of caterpillar tractors,
steam and gasoline tractors and col

which were bringing up more shells.
"It took time to prepare all of this,
and all of it had to be brought over
sea," said an officer. '
This morning from 6 o'clock
to 7:30 all guns along the twenty-mile
front were firing their
fastest in a chorus of final blasts, cut
ting wires and demolishing trenches.
The rapid fire of the small caliber
weapons resulted in a continuous roll.
The trenches were hidden by a cur
tain of smoke, punctured by vicious
flashes. Toward that cloud which
shrouded every form of destruction
within the power of man, the reserves
were moving forward.; Far above the
observation balloons, motionless in
the still air, a squadron a aeroplanes
was flying to its work spotting tar

After ten minutes of this, at 7:30,
the guns lifted their fire to the sec

they were answering to the pressure
of a single button, and the men of

their parapets and rushed toward the
wreckage the guns and mortars had
wrought. Even close at hand they

JUNE GOOD FOR

Hundred Thousand More
BALANCE IN ALL FUNDS
(Prom a Staff CarreessaJent.)
Lincoln, July 2. (Special,) -June
was a ' pretty good month around
the Nebraska state treasury, the coU
lections '.amounting to something
like $800,000 more than the disburse
ments. The total amount in the
treasury at the close of the month
amounted to nearly $2,400,000: ,
The report .given out ' by , State
Treasurer Hall, shows a balance in
every fund. The sttement of the
treasurer shows that the state holds
bond investments amounting to
$9,672,268, which makes a showing
with fnuds on hand indicating that
the state educational fund will run
up to about $10,000,000.
The conditions existing is the re
sult of compelling county treasurers
to remit monthly, which keeps the
state treaslury in a condition to meet
obligations promptly. However,
there are four counties which the
report shows are delinquent. Ar

Germany Sees Long-Expected ;
British Qffensive Has Begun
Berlin, July 2 (Via London.) Pri
vate advices from the front indicate
that the long-awaited British of
fensive on the west front finally has
begun. The earlier activity of the
British had' a more or less "feeling
out" character and left it uncertain
whether General Sir Douglas Haig
was in earnest or merely endeavoring
to hold the German forces on his
front. But today it is fairly apparent
that the new movement is the be
ginning of a serious offensive.
The headquarters report . today
speaks of heavy artillery fire, gas at
tacks and the explosion of mines as
preliminaries , to strong reconnaiS'
tancei in force along the Anglo.
French front. These, it is declared,
were everywhere repulsed.
There is no uneasiness manifest
here in military circles familiar with
the situation, though it is evidently
realized that this is only the be
ginning. Coincidentally ; with the Anglo
French offensive, fhe Turkish second
army has launched a general offensive
against the Russians in Persia on a
