Vote of Confidence.

Lenine is said to be displeased both

Heavy Losses Inflicted on Aus
trian When Picked Troops
Force Way to Support
(By Associated Press.)
Italian Healquarters in Northern
Italy, Thursday, Jan. 17. Italian
troops have, succeeded in breaking the
pressure which the enemy has been
exerting on the lower Piave in the
sector nearest Venice.
This is a triangular sector originally
cleared of the enemy when the whole
region was inundated by opening the
canals. But recently low water has
permitted the enemy to renew his in
cursions almost to Capo Sile and the
Enemy Controlled Canal.
Enemy patrols had established
dugouts and posts in the lagoons at
Agenzia Zuliana, just across the river
from Capo Sile, which commands the
canal running to Forto Grande and
the region back of Venice.
During the early days of the week
the Italian navy had bombarded the
dugouts and destroyed the bridge on
which the enemy was attempting to
cross at Agenzia Trezza. The enemy
made repealed attempts to enlarge his
position, but was uniformly repulsed.
Austrians Are Checked.
Stung by the repeated checks, the
enemy brought his full force to bear
yesterday morning. They were met
by chosen Italian troops from the
grenadier and bersaglieri brigades.
The Italian defense was led by the
bersaglieri, who had asked that privi
lege in order to answer scurrilous
pamphlets which had been thrown
into the Italian lines.
The bersaglieri hewed their way to
the enemy's support line. The fight
was stubborn for the first two hours,
but the enemy gradually gave ground
as fresh ranks of bersaglieri, cheering
and singing patriotic songs, threw
themselves into the struggle.
Machine Guns Effective.
One of the favorite ruses used by
the enemy was for a party of his
troops to advance with their hands
up, calling "kanierad!" When they
would get close to the Italian lines
they would rush forward suddenly
with hand grenades, only to be mowed
down as they advanced by the Italian
machine gun fire. The fighting
throughout was at close quarters.
Heavy losses were sustained by the
enemy, and the Italians captured 150
prisoners. The battle ground was
covered with Austrian dead and burial
parties were busy throughout the
night disposing of the bodies.
Many individual instances of brav
ery stand out. In one case an Italian
officer and five men leaped into an
Austrian trerich, took two machine
guns, killed all the Austrian gunners
and brought back the guns.
Zeppelin Battle Flag
Given to U. S. Marines
Washington, Jan. 18. The battle
flag of the Zeppelin L-40, brought
down near Bourbontie, France, Octo
ber 17, 1917, has been received at the
headquarters of the marine corps and
sent to the national .museum.
The flag, deep red, bears no dis
tinguishing insignia of any kind. Ac
companying it were small portions of
the outer envelope and of the gas
bag of the Zeppelin.
Steamer Reported Sinking
Arrives Safely in Port
An Atlantic Port, Jan. 18. The
Hawaiian-American line steamship
Texan, which was in a collision at
sea last Monday, arrived here safely
today under its own steam. It be
came known that it was rammed by
a convoying warship, which punched
a large hole in its port side.

The shortage of coal in Berlin is
another source of trouble. After
enumerating the difficulties, the
