By Associated Press.
Vladivostok, Saturday, Aug. 17.
At the request of General Dietreichs,
the commander of the Czecho-Slovak
force in Siberia, the head of the
American forces is dispatching a lim
jted t number of troops to occupy
points along the railroad between
here and Nikolsk. the junction point
of the Trans-Siberian railway with
the line running to Khabarovsk. This
will "release several hundred of the
Czcho-Slovaks for service on the
1 Assuming that the Japanese will
take responsibility for safeguarding
the line from Nikolsk to Khabarovsk,
there is an apparent need that the
i Americans provide for the operation
of the Trans-Siberian railway west
ward' to Manchuria station, where a
clash with the enemy is inevitable
This operation would be under allied
supervision and is. made possible
through the presence of the party of
I railroad experts under the leadership
of John F. Stevens. This party in

It is recognized that, as a military
measure, Vladivostok and its vicinity
should be under martial law, which
would insure the uninterrupted opera

said one of the early prisoners', "so
" we congratulated ourselves that we
were not to be attacked, Just then a
tank, followed by infantry rolled right
over our position and I surrendered."

As tanks and men followed behind
the sweeping barrage, the atmosphere
became even more thick, for mixed
. with the fog were great banks' of
smoke from innumerable shells fired
for just this purpose of increasing the
protecting screen. .
The German guns retaliated on the
west, but there was sharp fighting at
various points, where isolated posts

fight, and for a time the advance of
the infantry was held up at this place.
Then the tanks arrived on the
scene and charged into the enemy po
sitions, quickly transforming them
from -strongholds to shambles. The
tanks repeated this performance at
other, places in the line where the
stubborn bodies held out courageous
ly. But their courage availed them
nothing in the face of the great tanks,
' dipping in and out of shell holes and
across trenches that have seen some
of the war's fiercest fighting, and the
smaller whippet tanks and armored
carl, which sped over the ground at
a great rate in their mission of clear
ing the way for the infantry sweeping
in at the rear of the positions from
which, the enemy was working bis
- guns.- .
The village of Beaucourt was taken
with hut three casualties. One wound
ed men returning from the fight
ing said he went in three kilometers
through the enemy's lines before see
ing a single boche. This is explained
by the fact that the German posi

Prisoners Seem Pleased,
A to prisoners there is no definite
Information, but more than 1,000 have
reached the cages and they have come
' in from a considerable distance, most
of them having been captured during
the early fighting. Some of the first
prisoners arrived at the cages with
handbags and long curved porcelain
pipes, They seemed clean and were
as pleased with themselves as if going
on leave. One of them, on being
questioned,, said he was very happy
to be taken.
A wounded British soldier told of
beinr separated from his platoon in
the ipg, but he pressed on neverthe
less and joined other groups. One
said that, plunging blindly through
the fog, he ran directly into a Ger
man machine gun, which opened fire
on him. It. managed to get in one
shot, taking off 'finger before -he and
hts comrades finished off the Germans
with their riflesj . ' . .
In, the early forenoon the fig cleared
away 'completely and the sun ap
peared and ever since the battle has
been progressing under a broiling
sun. As the fog disappeared the roar
of airplane .motors increased, the
British machines pursuing the same
tactics as at. the Somme, harassing
the enemy at the rear and straffing
the German troops generally, upset
tiny them completely at many places.
The fast little whippet tanks had
' as one tank officer said, gone out into
the wide world, and there is no Joubt
that they are exacting as great a toll
, here aa they did .south of the Somme.
The armored cars had gone into ac
tion, operating far forward, chasing
the boche from his many lairs and
making quick work of those who
would not run. j
la this battle the advancing troops
did .not stop a moment at their early
" " objectives. Several formations joined
forces and pressed' on together. Suc
cessive echelons were merged at a
place where the going was heavy.
The battle continues with unabated
fury and there is no sign that its con
clusion is near.

Tide of Defeat Still
Surges Against Germans
In France and Flanders
By Associated Press.
On four important sectors French
and British arms again have been
served and the entire German front
from Ypres, in Belgium, to Sois
sons, on the Aisne, now is more
seriously menaced than before.
What is to be the effect of the
allied drives along the 120-mile
battle front from Ypres to Soissons
cannot be foretold at present, but it
seems highly probable that this en
tire front must be realigned.
This particular menace to the Ger
mans, aside from that in the ter
ritory between the Somme and the
Oise, appears to be on the sector
along the Vesle river from Soissons
' to Rheims, which , from the war
maps looks to be untenable.
Even the Aisne and the Chemin-Des-Dames
do not appear to be any
too safe for a defense line if Gen
eral Mangin presses much farther
northwest of Soissons.
SUNK BY TRAWLER
ARMED AS RAIDER
Eighty Survivors Reach Port;
Crew From Submarine Is
Operating on Banks With
By Associated Press.
A Canadian Atlantic Port, Aug 21.
The operations of the steam trawler
Triumph, manned by a crew from a
German submarine, have resulted in
the sinking of four fishing vessels and
probably others, according to reports
at hand tonight. The schooners
known to have been sunk are the Una
P. Saunders and the Lucille Schnare,
of Lurienberg, N. S., the A. Piatt An
drew of Gloucester, Mass., and the
Francis J. O'Hara of Boston.' Their
crews numbering 80 in all, had reached
port safely tonight.
A fifth vessel, the Pasadena, was in
sight when the Lucille Schnare was
sent down and it was believed that
she shared the fate of the other fish
ermen, although no direct news of her
had been received. Great anxiety was
felt here also regarding other vessels
of the fishing fleet known to have been
withm the scene of the raider's ac
tivity. The Triumph, which left Portland,
Me., last Monday for the western
banks, was captured by a German sub
marine at 2 p. m. yesterday. A crew
of 16 men was placed on board and
they lost no time in arming her with
two gun's and beginning their work
of havot among the fishermen.
U-boat Prisoner Released;

marine which was so overcrowded
with men that there was scarcely

exploits like the arming of the fishing

of a normal crew. '

RIOTING AT KOBE
Many Persons Wounded in Dis
turbances in Japan; Mobs
Led by Anarchistic Ele
ments of Empire.
By Associated Press. . .
Tokio, Aug. 21. The violence of the
food riots and the rapidity with which
they spread have astonished the Jap
anese and have convinced them,
though far removed from the center
of the war, that they cannot escape
its consequences nor remain un
touched, by the world movements
which the war has set in motion. No
such disturbances have convulsed the
nation since the .days of the restora
The movement appears to be entire
ly economic and social and has no po
litical aspect except as it is directed
against the Japanese ministry, which
is popularly regarded as bureaucratic.
Aside from the protest against the
prohibitive price of rice, anti-wealth
demonstrations developed. The resi
dences of a number of millionaires
were burned and immense damage
was done to the property of mer
Anarchistic elements frequently led
the mobs, but there has been no evi
dence of the bolshevik tendencies
such as prevailed in Russia.
The ringleaders of the rioting at
Kobe, who, flourishing their swords
led the mob, were killed on the spot.
A large number of persons are re
ported to have been wounded during
the disturbances throughout the em
pire. Seventy policemen are sa.d to
have been injured at Nazoya alone.
The mobs often were armed with re
volvers, swords, daggers and clubs.
Most of the' arrests were made by
detectives who mingled with the
crowds, chalking a cross on the backs
of the ringleaders and then capturing
them when the riots were over.
General Bernhardi's Army
Shattered by BritishAttack
London, Aug. 21. The nresent
series of German defeats have in
volved a German officer who is per
haps better known to the reading
public of the allied nations than al
most any of the German generals. He
is General Iernhardi, author of the
famous books which so frankly re
vealed Germany's war aims. He com
mands the SSth corps of the sixth
army, which has been steadily driven
back by the British across the plains
of Lys toward Armentieres.
Packers' Profits Are
The public should understand that the profits of
the packers have been limited by the Food Adminis
tration since November 1, 1917. For this purpose,
the business of Swift & Company is now divided into
Class 1 includes such products as beef,
pork, mutton, oleomargarine and others
that arc essentially animal products.
Profits are limited to 9 per cent of the
capital employed in these depart
ments; (including surplus and borrowed
money), or not to exceed two and a half
cents on each dollar of sales.
Class 2 includes the soap, glue, fertil
izer, and other departments more or
less associated with the meat business.
Many of these departments are in
competition with outside businesses
whose profits are not limited. Profits
in this class are restricted to 15 per
cent of the capital employed.
Class 3 includes outside investments,
such as those in stock yards, and the
operation of packing plants in foreign
countries. Profits in this class are
Total profits for all departments together in 1918
will probably be between three and four per cent on
an increased volume of sales.
The restrictions absolutely guarantee a reason-.
able relation between live stock prices and wholesale
meat prices, because the packer's profit can not
possibly average more than a fraction of a cent per
