(By Associated Press.)
With the British Army in France,
April 28. Hard fighting continued
about Locre and Voormezeele, but
elsewhere thus far today has been' a
day of rest for the infantry as a
whole, . The battle for Loere and
Voormezeele has been most desperate.
Both places have changed hands sev
eral times in the past twenty-four
hours, and at the latest reports it was
an "even break," for the British were,
in possession of Voormezeele, while
the enemy seems to have succeeded
early in the day in getting a foothold
in the Locre again.
An engagement north of the Ypres-
, Comines canal was in progress
throughout most of the night, with
the British holding dqggedly and in
flicting heavy losses on the attacking
. troops. The German casualties in
this part of the front have been very
Smother Ypres in Gas.
The German artillery- today was
- smothering the ruins of Ypres in
gas, and there was considerable artil
lery firing all along the line. '
Locre has changed hands at least
five times since Friday. This morn
ing's assault was delivered about 4
o'clock and while the Germans ap
parently had gained an entrance to
the place, their tenure of it was be
ing hotly contested by the Poilus. ,
A similar fight has been waged for
Voormezeele. "The Germans retook
the hamlet last night, but were unable
to hold it only a short time, for the
British in a brilliant counter attack
stormed their way through the place
and ejected the enemy.
An attempted enemy attack near
Villers-Bretonneux yesterday was
smashed by artillery fire.
New York, April 28. Madame Marie
K. De Victorica, believed bv officers
of the Department of Justice to be

agents in this country for the last 15
months, was arrested at a fashionable
Long Island hotel today and brought
to this city as a dangerous enemy
Madame De Victorica was in a
highly nervous condition and was sent
to the prison ward at Bellevue hos
pital. Margaret Sullivan, her maid,
was held as a material witness.
Madame De Victorica, who also has
been known as Madame De Vussiere,
ia said to have come to the United
States through Norway as a pas-
She is 33 years old and a handsome
woman of the German type. She ex
plained her presence in this country
by saying she came here to look for
her husband.
Federal authorities believe her real
mission in the United States was to
spread German propaganda among
the Irish. She is reported to have been
the i chief aide to a lieutenant com
mander of the German navy, who
reached here in December, 1916, and
who has been , working among Sinn
Fein sympathizers, trying to get
them to enlist in the British navy in
order to plant bombs on warships.
The naval officer disappeared a few
days ago when he discovered that De
partment of Justice agents were trail
ing him. -

solve a difficult problem. Heretofore
the railroads have been buying coal
only for immediate needs."

Bif Noise of City Campaign Will
Be Started by Candidate Tonight
Ed P. Smith expressed himself as
follows on the gas plant question
which will be submitted to the voters
on May 7:
"I am earnestly in favor of giving
to the city of Omaha at the coming
election authority to take over, by
condemnation proceedings, the prop
erties of the Omaha Gas company
This does not mean we should pay
"war baby" prices for these prpper
ties; nor does it mean we should take
them over when values of, iron and
steel are unduly inflated because of
the war and municipal bonds difficult
to sell.
"But it does mean that the city of
Omaha should possess the power and
authority to condemn and take over
these properties just as soon. as the
times are otumal and .the appraised
value is reasonable and honest, The
law expressly confers upon the city
council, authority to reject any ap
praised valuation if in its judgement
the amount is excessive or its pur
chase not then advisable. This im
portant feature of the law seems to be
overlooked by many.
"We purchased the water works at
a valuation that many of us regarded
as grossly ' excessive, but notwith
standing that, our water board has
been able to provide for the payment
of the bonds we voted and has re
duced our water rates approximately
50 per cent. With equally efficient
management I believe gas bills, under
municipal ownership, could be cor
respondingly reduced.
"Wo owe it to every householder in
Omaha to use our best efforts to ac
complish that purpose- The Gas
company's franchise will expire with
the year 1918. It will then have no
legal right to use our streets and
alleys for the purpose of carrying on
its business. There wilt then be no
"good will," "franchise," or "going
concern value" to be paid for.
"There should be no extension of
that franchise. Until actually taken
over by the city arrangements should
be made to continue the service with
out a franchise and without prejudice
to the city's rights. The argument
that gas wilhsoon be obsolete for
heating and cooking purposes is the
argument of those who are opposed to
municipal ownership under-any con
ditions." Dean Ringer, speaking at a big
meeting of packing house men, at
tacked Mayor Dahlman for his state
ment concerning Ed P. Smith as a
member of the district appeal board.
"These are some of the same old
dirty politics that have been played in
Omaha through so many political
campaigns," said Ringer. "The char
acter and service of Ed P. Smith are
so high. in this community that no
body of intelligence is deceived by
the mayor's frantic efforts to perpet
uate himself in office. To real
patriots it is inconceivable that any
man should stoop to such tactics as
Mayor Dahlman did when he charged
that Ed P. Smith was unfair in some
of his decisions as a member of the
district appeal board. One of Mr.
Smith s sons is a soldier in the United
States army and that fact alone is
sufficient to refute the mayor's state
ment. Things are coming to a mourn
ful pass when a citizen who ia giving
his greatest patriotic service, both in
his own time and in sending his own
son to the army, can be assailed by a
mere office seeker."
Ringer's remarks were greeted with
cheers by a large audience of men
which assembled in spite of the rain.
