Authority of New Siberian
Government Is Established;
All Archangel Freed From
Washington, Aug. 28. Complete
failure of the attempt of General Hor
rath, the anti-bolshevist leader, to
establish dictatorship in Siberia is re
ported in advices today from Vladi
vostok. Representatives of the allies
at Vladivostok intervened to uphold
the authority of the new government
f General Horvath is. a representative
of the old school of Russian auto
rraev. havine been an appointee' of
the ex-crar. He has been for many.
years in the far east, where he has
been manager of the Russian-Manchu-rian
railroad. Soon after the over
throw of the cur he joined forces
with the revolutionists in attempting
tn restore government of some sort
in eastern Siberia. Recently he has
been fighting the bolsheviki and German-Austrian
prisoners of war.
Allies Hailed by Populace.
' Archangel, Russia, Aug. 28. With
the voluntary surrender of the town
.f Shenkursk on the Waga river, south
of Archangel, to the representatives
of the new government, the last town
of any , size in the government of
Archangel,-passed out of the hands
' of the bolsheviki. The reception giv
en the allied troops at one of the
mote important villages in the pro
vince was typical. Here the elders
met the troops on the road and wel
comed them The people gave up
their best houses for billets and hailed
the soldiers as the saviors of Russia.

and drove' the Germans out. Then a
second time the enemy troops were
called upon to counter-attack. This
time, it is reported, the whole body
refused and only few patrols were
seen by the British.'
AH sorts of trocp have been
hurled into the battle south of the
Scarpe, as well as to the north. Many
formations have been finished off al
most as soon as they appeared. The
ground all over fs covered with large
numbers of, German dead. Just
south of the Scarpe one place was
completely carpeted .with , bodies in
field gray. -
There was also heavy .fighting fn
the Croisilles region before and after
the Croisilles region before and after
that town was. stormed and captured
this forenoon. Fierce fighting has
been reported from Croisilles ridge
and the (-beaten Germans are said to
b fleeing from Bullecourt and the
surrounding country. The capture of
f Croisilles eliminates a spot which
had been holding up the British ad
vance on this part of the battle front.
Stiff resistance had been offered dur
ing the counter-attacks, and the
liritish swung around on the flanks,
driving especially down from the
1 north and. following the general di
rection of the old Hindenburg line,
and the town became, too hot fpr the
enemy to hold.
Flee Under Heavy Fire.
Sanguinary tosses have been in
flicted on the Germans in all the
fighting in this general region. Brit
ish guns placed back of Croisilles
have hit the retreating Germans at
many places, particularly in the
neighborhood of Hendecourt. The
gunners have had the unusual experi
ence of seeing where every shot fired
fell and noting the damage each did.
The enemy artillery, retiring from
1 the rear of Hendecourt. offered a fine
target, and shells were sent raining
into the fleeing columns, cutting
great gaps in them.
Vis-En-Artois, which was captured
by the Canadians, was the scene of
more hard fighting. ! The town is com
pletely leveled and many dead Ger
mans are mixed up in the piles of
The enemy has been reported to
blowing great craters in the roads
south of the Somme in his effort to
check the advance. One 30-foot crat
er was .blown in the road between
Arras and Cambrai just outside of
' North of here a group of prisoners
. captured said they had arranged
among themselves to yell "kamerad"
as soon as the Canadians launched
Near Vis-En-Artois this morning
when an attack was launched a host
of Germans suddenly got up out of
the ground and ran like so many
rabbits, leaving only a few machine
guns behind them.
It is impossible as yet to obtain
any accurate figures regarding pris
oners. One corps is reported to have
taken 2,000 since yesterday. But the
armies do not have time to count
, their prisoners while the fighting con-
tinues. The British are principally
occupied with capturing more, and
the coun.mg can be done later.

calibers maintained a heavy fire from
strong positions west ot tne canai.
After Chaulnes fell. Gommecourt, to
the north, and Sept fours were taken,
while later Cressy, Balatre. Champien
and Roiglise, between Nesle and
Roye, were captured and more than a
score of other villages occupied.
The battle field the Germans have
abandoned presents a picture of de
vastation and desolation that has not
been surpassed during the war. Roye
and the villages round about have
been quite as thoroughly demolished
as Montdidier and Moreuil.
Even cemeteries have been blown
up, tombstones smashed and graves
opened. The names of towns in this
region no longer have any other
significance than as a reminiscence
and a geographical designation. They
have ceased to exist as towns. -Their
sites are hardly recognizable, for the
intense shelling has not only ob
literated streets and defaced boundary
lines, but has rendered the topography
unrecognizable in many places.
The ruins abandoned by the Ger
mans previously were carefully filled
with mustard gas. For this reason
Roye is still inacessible for occupa
tion. The Germans were not able to use
all the gas projectiles they brought
to the present front and large dumps
of them fell into French hands. They
are now being fired against the en
emy from some of the hundreds of
German guns the French first army
has taken since August 8. t

With the French in possession of
Noyoa, the Germans will have only
their positions to the northeast, in
the hills along the Oise, and in the
northwest on the west bank of the
noi rit NnrH. to nrotect their re
treat to the forest of St. Gobain and
the Hindenburg line.
Tt i not considered oossible that
the 3erman retreat will halt on the
Oise, French patrols reaching the re
gion of Bethancourt this afternoon.
The crossing of the canal and the
river Somme in that region by the
French troops would create the great
est menace to the enemy's troops and
material. This prospect explains the
sacrifice of an immense quantity of
material in the region between Roye
and trje canal in order to accelerate
the retrograde movement.
Thrown Into Dis'order
Paris, Aug. 28. The German forces
have been thrown into disorder by
the advance of the French troops to
wards the river Somme. The retreat
of the enemy in the direction of the
east and the northeast on the whole
front held by the French troops be
tween Chaulnes and Noyon is being
accelerated by the armies of Generals
Debeney and Humbert.

What The Packers
Do For You
Not very many years ago in the history of the world,
the man that lived in America had to hunt for his food,
or go without
Now he sits down at a table and decides what he
wants to eat; or his wife calls up the market and has it sent
home for him. And what he gets is incomparably better.
1 Everyone of us has some part in the vast human
machine, called society, that makes all this convenience
The packer's part is to prepare meat and get it to
every part of the country sweet and fresh to obtain it
from the stock raiser, to dress it, 'cool it, ship it many
miles in special refrigerator cars, keep it cool at distrib
uting points, and get it into the consumer's hands your
hands through Retailers, all within about two weeks.
For this service so perfect and-effective that you
are scarcely aware that anything is being done for you
you pay the packers an average profit of only a fraction
of a cent a pound above actual cost on every pound of
meat you eat
