Says Resources of the United
i States Are Ample if All
Co-Operate With the
Atlantic City, N. J., Sept 28.
Vast ovelsubsubscription of the
three-billion-dollar second Liberty
;loaa was confidently predicted, by
Secretary McAdoo in an address
here today before the American
Bankers' association, calling on the
bankers to Rive the same patriotic
" support to the new bond issue that
they gave to the first.
Emphasizing the tremendous finan
cial task ahead of the nation, Mr.
McAdoo pointed oat .that it would
be necessary to raise between $1J.
000,000,000 and $14,000,000,000 by ad-
ditional bond issues before June 30,
1918. This will not be easy, he said,
but it can be done by everybody
banker, business man. and men and
'women in every walk of life joininsr
hands to see it through.
"Fortunately," he added, "the re
sources of America were never so
ample for ourselves and so formid
able for our enemies as now. The
combined resources of the national
and state, banks (including trust com
panies), of the United States are
now $37,000,000,000. At the outbreak
of the civil war the combined re
sources of the banks were estimated
to be $1,500,000,000, and yet with
these limited banking resources the
union government raised $3,000,000,000
by bond sales, or twice the amount
of the banking resources of the coun
try. Upon the same basis we should
now be able to raise $74,000,000,000
through government loans. I am not
suggesting that this may be done; 1
am only drawing a comparison.'

Sutherland Highlanders who made
t such remarkable stand Tuesday and
Tuesday night in the face of over
whelming odds, against German at
tacks in the neighborhood of the
Ypres-Menin road and who were
mentioned in the official report for
' their great gallantry, are the heroes
, of the hour, along the front They
: were finally relieved by the advancing
, troops from their isolated position
where they had been cut off by the
Germans in the early operations.
Their unit was involved in furious
German counter stacks, which were
begun Tuesday morning, probably in
, an effort to disrupt the - expected
British offensive. They were attacked
i about dawn, by elements of four Ger
man divisions. So bitter was the en
emy assault that the .British troops
were bent back, but the two com
panics of Highlanders refused to give
ground and clung stubbornly to their
; posts in the face of terrific blows
; from the enemy.
1 ' Battle All Morning. ' . V i
' The battle raged all morning. About
2 o'clock In the afternoon the British
counter attacked and fought their way
forward until they had reestablished
themselves in virtually all the ground
lost, But they were still some dis
tance short of the two companies,
who valiantly heU their own. All af
ternoon and throughout the night the
Highlanders stuck to their positions,
although the enemy continued to rush
forward infantry in an attempt to dis
lodge them. And here this handful
of Intrepid Scots were found and
rescued when the Briitsh advance
swept forward at daybreak Wednes
day morning. : ' " s i s
The . main battle this morning was
in the neighborhood of a position
known as Cameron House, which lies
. just oouth of the eastern extremity of
Polygon wood. A severe and contin
uous struggle has been proceeding

Australians were pressing the . Ger

East and a little northeast of St

tiona which the British had captured
yesterday morning. A very determined
assault in the neighborhood of Boet

Russ Women Fighters
Petrog rad, Sept 28. An army or
der issued today gives high praise
to the Second women' fighting de
tachment at the front The order
says the women soldiers arrived at
a time of great difficulty, owing to
the destruction of the roads by
rains and confuaion caused by the
retreating, demoralized troops.
Nevertheless, the women were per
fectly disciplined and showed "that
they were conscious of their duty
of defending the fatherland."
In tactics the women are de
scribed at having been efficient, es
pecially in class formation work.
The women served in a Turkestan
rifle division . famous for hard
marching, but kept up with the men,
tramping along in their heavy
equipment twenty or thirty miles a
