By The Associated Press.
The British front east of
'Amiens, on each side of the
'Avre and along the Somme
. river, seems to be the storm
center of the battle , front in
France. Australians, assisted
by American detachments, on
July 4, drove the Germans out
of Hamel and the Vaire and
Hamel woods,' to the south at
the , same time launching a
secondary attack on the Ger
man positions north of Somme
Since that time the. lines before
Amiens have been .very active.
The Germans have been repulsed in
fen attempt' to retake the village o!
Hamel and the wooded positions
further south. The British official
report says the enemy was stopped
easily but the Germans claim to have
checked the British forces east of
Hamel and to have thrown them back
to their original lines at Villers Bret

"With the exception of aerial com
bats,, the American front -has been

The German official statement tells
of British attacks in the Ypres region,
adding that. : they were repulsed.

s Italian forces operating near the
mouth of the Piave, have continued
to make progress, .faking more than
400 prisoners, as well as a battery of

desperate counter attacks by the
Austrians against positions taken

- Finland Menaces Allies.
Stockholm reports that Finland is
expected to declare war on the entente
allies. This is probably the result of
German pressure incident to the land
ing of allied forces at Kola, on the
Murman coast. It has been reported
that German and Finnish troops are
pushing northward toward' the port of
Kola to seize vast stores transported
there before Russia's collapse as a
factor in the war.
Unrest in South Africa.
Two rumors of internal dissension
' have been current. One is to the
effect that the death of Mohammed
V., Sultan of Turkey, was not due to
natural causes, but the result of a
revolt in that country. The other
comes from South Africa, where it is
reported considerable unrest exists
and where strong measures are being
taken to cope with the situation.

Congratulations to the Italian
army and people for the me
morable victory over the Austro
Hungarian army were expressed at
the meeting. It was said that it is
xonsidered that the victory won by
the Italians at the critical turning
point of the war brings a valuable
contribution to the allies' efforts
and points to . the final success of
their cause. ,

Washington, July 5. While the

The telegraph resolution . was
adopted by the house tonight by a
vote of 221 to 4, after a spirited de

said the . president had expressed a
desire for its passage at once and
some republicans had charged that
the authority proposed for the presi

Great Damage Done; Behind

"173 Enemy Planes Downed
at Cost of 36.
London, July 5. During the last
week the entente allies on- the western
front have taken more than 5,000
prisoners. A series of minor opera
tions also resulted in their gaining
possession of several important
strategic points, inflicting heavy losses
on the enemy and obtaining valuable
information as to his plans for the
Another satisfactory feature of the
last week's operations was the work
of the allies in the air. Great danii ve
was done by the aviators to German
communications ' and concentrations
of men and material behind the lines.
The superiorityo f the entente air
fighters is shown by the fact that
during the last week, on the British
front alone, 173 German airplanes
were downed while only 36 British
machines are missing.
The British military reports for the
week pay a high tribute to the work
of the Americans at Vaux and on the
Somme, declaring that the American
soldiers have shown the, highest
fighting qualities, while their staff
work has been excellent.

extended into the adjoining coun
ties of Roscommon and Kings.
There was no resistance except
in a few instances, where the pres

weapons were surrendered. The
people were surprisd, not expecting
such drastic action in view of the

Washington,, July 5. Russia con

consideration by the administration
and itis understood that there are
almost daily exchanges of opinion be
tween Washington and the entente

proposition for the dispatch to Si

Some Disquieting News.
Delay is . encountered in securing
reliabel information regarding cdmrli
tions in Archangel.. This j partial
larly exasperating , to, the officials be
cause of the unofficial reports that
reach Washington of the hostile atti
tude of the Finns, said to be rein
forced ' by German soldiers. It is
realized that a considerable Finnish
German force could easily seize stra
tegic points on the rairoad running
south from Archangel and ' Kola to
Volgda. There is a report the in
vaders have arrived at Kim. an im
portant town on this road near the
southern end of the White Sea.
A successful movement of this kind
might defeat any entente Dlan to send
a mlitary force into Central Russia
lrom the north. As long as the en
tente fleet is able to navigate in the
Arctic the little force of sailors and
marines at Kola ana vicinity would
be safely supported. The advent of
winter probably will make it neces
sary to withdraw this force.
Germany Controls Finns. '
Press reports from Stockholm pre
dicting theh adhesion of Finland to
the central power alliance are as yet
unconfiremd officially. But it is rea
lized that German pressure upon Fin
land is overpowering and the treaty
ot last March between Germany and
Finland practically made the former
the dictator of the policies of Finland.
The treaty is saidto give Germany
economic control of Finland and as
sured her direction of external re
lations. . The entry of Finland into
an alliance with the central powers
would not be an unmitigated evil, in
the opinion of officials here, as it
would clarify the situation.

The eight keels were laid for de
stroyers at the plant of the Bethlehem
Union Iron works, San Francisco.
That plant launched eight destroyers,
the Newport News, Va., yard, three;
Cramps, Philadelphia, two, and the
Fore River plant, Quincy, Mass., one.
The names of these craft previously
had been announced.
. Objectives Surpassed
American ship builders vent be
yond their objectives in the Inde
pendence day drive for new tonnage.
The shipping board announced to
day that the workmen started out
with the expectation, of launching
439,886 dead weight tons, but late re
ports to the ' board today showed
that 474,464. tons had been gotten
ready to put overboard.
The actual number of ships
launched was 82. The launching. of 11
others was held up by a freshet in the
Columbia river, . while two others
stuck on the ways. They are expected
to be released without great delay.
As a result of the Independence
day launchings, July and August de
liveries are expected to show tremen

he hesitated until his military ad

No Submarine Sighted.
In announcing tonight the sinking'
of the Covington, formerly the Ham-!
burg-American liner Cincinnati, the -Navy
department. said that the sub-,
marine which sent a torpedo crash-'
ing into the ship's side just forward .
of the engine room at 9:17 o'clock at i
night, was not sighted. .
Vice Admiral Sims' message did :
not go into details, but officers believe ,
the submarine was on the, surface re- ;
charging Us batteries when the con- ,
voy came along ' and that it sub-
merged immediately after discharz-
ing the torpedo without attempting
further. fcttackT'.', '''i - w
The theory J:hat the submarine
made "off. n haste is borne out by the .
fact that the crew was transferred to
a destroyer, without incident. Some
surprise swas occasioned by the fact
that the 'siihmartni. rtirt tint rflnrn

at a French port -was "seriously in-
