Landing of Britons on Gallipoll
Accomplished After ltepeatcd At

IAVDON, May 11. The allied troops

H'-cordlns to an Athens dispatch to
the . Eschangn Telesrraph Company.
They are reported to have occupied
important positions in spite of the des
perate resistance offered by the
Turks, whose total losses are esti
mated at 45.000 men. The hospitals in
Constantinople are said to be so
crowded that wounded are being sent
to Konieh in Asia Minor.
Turkish troops are beine transported-

teapurts of Alexandretta and Adalia,

The British press representative in
the Dardanelles under date of April
Sn has written the following account
of operations on the peninsula:
"While Australians and New 55ea
)anders were fis-htinpr so pallantly
ecainst heavy odds north of Gaba
Tepe. British troops crowned them
selves with equal laurels at the south
ern end of the Gallipoli Peninsula. A
firm footing has now been obtained.
The lirwe stretches across the southern
end of the entire peninsula with both
flanks secured by the fire of war
ships. The army holds many conven
ient landing- places, immune from the
nemy"s guns.
"The problems British landing: par
lies faced differed from those the Aus
tralians solved farther .north. Here
the cliffs are not hlgrh and Irreg-ular,
but rise about 50 feet from the water's
cdse, with stretches of beach at inter
vals. Five of these beaches were se
lected for disembarkation under the
cover of warships. It was hoped the
Turkish trenches would be rendered
untenable and the barbed wire en
tnnplements cut by the fire of the
ships, but these expectations were not

"For example, the landing; place be
tween Cxaba Tepe and Capo Helles was
the scene of a. desperate struggle which
rased all day. The Turks held barbed
w ire protected trenches in force and
their snipers covered the foreshore.
After hours of bombardment the troops
were taken ashore at daybreak. Part
of the force scaled the cliffs and ob
tained a precarious footing on the
edge of the cliffs, but boats which
landed alonor the beach were confronted
with a solid -hedge of barbed wire and
exposed to a terrible cross Are. ' Every
effort was made to cut the wire, but
almost all those who landed here were
shot down. Later the troops on, the
cliffs succeeded in driving back the
Turks and clearing the beach.
"The most terrible of all landings,
however, was on the beach between
Cape Helles and Seddul Bahr. Here
the broker valley runs inland, enfiladed
by hills on either flank, on which were
built strong forts which defended the
entrance to the straits until they were
knocked out by our guns. Although
the guns and emplacements were shat
tered, the bombproofs and ammunition
chambers remained Intact and running
back formed a perfect network of
trenches and entanglements right
around the semi-circular valley.
Snipers Found Everywhere.
"The Turks had mounted pompoms
n the Cape Helles side and had the
usual snipers concealed everywhere.
The foreshore and valley also were
protected by trenches and wire, render
ing the position most formidable.
"One novel expedient was running a
liner full of troops deliberately ashore,
thus allowing them to approach close
in under cover without being exposed

cut In her sides to permit rapid dis
embarkation and she was well provided
with maxims to sweep the shore while
the troops were landing. Owing to her
goiniar ashore farther east than was
intended, however, it became necessary
to bring up a lighter to facilitate the
landing. The Turks directed a perfect
tornado of rifle, maxim and pompom
fire on 200 men who made a dash down
the gangway. Only a few survived to
gain shelter. All the others were killed
in the gangway. Disembarkation.

"Then, while the liner carrying 2000

"Meanwhile the Turks on the Asiatla
side tried to destroy the liner by
howitaer fire, which was kept under

this covering fire. the vessel was
pierced by four big shells and It was
decided to postpone any further move

War Conld Be Made Last In History,
Says Retired American Officer, by
Federation of Nations.
LOS ANGELES. May 11. Lieu tenant
General Nelson A. Miles, retired, said
in an interview published here today
that la his opinion the Lusitania
tragedy would be only one of a series
of appalling disasters, due -to the
European war, but that the war Itself
could be made "the last in history" by
a federation of nations, working
through a recognized and properly sup
ported tribunal of arbitration.
With regard to the keen interest of
the United States In the consequences
of the Lusitanla's destruction, General
Miles said his lips were sealed by the
War Department rules governing Army
officers. But he added:
"A general demand for militarism
will lead us back 200 years, when the
people at large had nothing to say re
garding peace or war. Reason, liberty
and human rights must prevail or they
must degenerate."

"The necessity of Austria-Hungary
aa a bulwark against the Slavs has
been Implicitly recognized by Great
Britain and France. Furthermore, I
believe this feeling certainly would
increase if Emperor Nicholas could ac
complish his political attainment,
namely, the occupation of Constantino
ple, for the reason that from Constan
tinople the Emperor of Russia could
threaten the Mediterranean, the Suez
Canal and the Persian Gulf, a situation
which would revive the old antagonism
between Great Britain and Russia.
"If Russia sees her ambition frus
trated with her allies," this Italian
statesman continues. "I would not be
surprised at her being the first to come
to terms with Germany on the basis
of an agreement that Turkey permit
her to pass the Dardanelles.
"Such an outcome as this would lead
to the reconstruction of the league
the three Emperors, with all its polit
ical international chances which are
easy to foresee.
"These are the principal reasons why
Italy, unless it cannot be helped, should
not break her treaty with Germany and
Austria-Hungary, a treaty which ex
pires in 1917," the leader of the neu
tral party said in conclusion, "but at
the same time she should cultivate good
relations with . Great Britain, with
whom we have no cause for friction.

Paris Says Vigorous Offensive Is
Being Pursued by Allies; Car
ency Invested and German
Lines Made Precarious.
PARIS. May 11. The following offi
cial communication was issued by the
French War Office tonight:
"To the north of IMxmude the Bel
gian troops who have succeeded In
throwing up a bridge head on the right
bank of the Yser were subjected to
violent attacks by three German bat
talions last night. The Belgians re
pulsed these, inflicting on the enemy
heavy losses and taking about 50 pris
oners. Another Belgian division has
gained ground to the south of Dix
mude. "To the cast of Ypres the British
troops have been attacked again with
the aid of asphyxiating gases. They
allowed the fumes to pass over, under
the protection of masks recently put
into use, and by rifle and machine
gun fire they annihilated at the points
of their guns the German columns,
which had advanced in close formation.
German Trench System Taken.
"Our success to the north of Arras
was sensibly enlarged today In the
course of the fighting. 'In an engage
ment of extreme violence in front, of
Loos we captured, after a desperate
struggle and despite an intense can
nonade, an important German work
and an entire system of trenches con
structed along the road from Loos to
"Further to the south we captured
by assault the big blockhouse and the
chapel of Notre Dame de Lorette. This
position had been ardently defended for
months by the Germans, who had
turned it into a veritable fortress. It
was surrounded and invested and was
taken today by our troops.
"We have, without pause, pursued
our success in pressing the enemy
energetically between the chapel of
Notre Dame de Lorette and Ablain-St.
Nazaire. All of the German trenches to
the south of the chapel have fallen suc
cessively Into our hands, and in them
we found several hundred dead bodies.
"The Germans, debouching from
Ablain-St. Nazaire, delivered a counter
attack which was immediately crushed.
"We have also taken the offensive
and gained ground in the direction of
the sugar refinery at Souchez. At
Carency the investment of the German
position has been drawn tighter by us.
Blockhouses Are Occupied.
"We have occupied several blocks of
houses in the eastern part of the vil
lage and made 50 prisoners, of whom
one was an officer, and we have
progressed toward the wood to the east
of the village. The communications of
Carency and Ablain-sur-Souchez are
becoming more and more difficult for
the enemy.
"After a violent engagement we took
possession -of the cemetery at .Neuville
St. Vaast, which had been strongly or
ganized by the Germans, and followed
this work with an advance to the
southeast of the village, beyond which
we extended our lines "west and east.
"In the sectoe of Loos-Arras, where
we previously carried three lines of
German trenches, fighting is now go
ing on along the fourth line.
"Prisoners, .whose numbers continue
to increase, declare the order was
given to hold at any price the chapel
and blockhouse of Notre Dame de Lo
rette." Mgkt Attack Belgians Fails.
The French official report issued
earlier in the day said:
"In Belgium, near St. Georges, the
enemy endeavored by a night attack
to recapture the positions taken by us
the day before yesterday. They were,
however, repulsed.
"North of Arras our progress has
continued. We took possession first of
the cemetery Monday night, and then
of the eastern part of the village of
Carency and also of the road from
Carency to Sauches. Carency. where
we took 230 more prisoners, including
three officers, and captured several
machine guns, is now invested by our
troops on three sides and is reduced
to precarious communication with the
German lines.
"The forces brought by the enemy
from Lens and from Douai in auto
mobiles were not successful at any
place in getting the advantage. Four
strong counter attacks broke down un
der our fire during the afternoon of
Monday, at the same time suffering
heavy losses.
"These attacks took place In front
of Loos, at Notre Dame de Lorette,
at Sauchez and at Neuville Saint
Vaast. At this last mentioned place
we gained territory, at the same time
making about 100 prisoners. The num
ber of officers taken by us up to
last night is more than 60.
"The enemy suffered a further check
Monday night. The counter-attack to
the north of Neuville Saint Vaast,
preceded by a violent bombardment,
was completely repulsed and we re
tained all the ground gained thus, at
the same time inflicting heavy losses
on our assailants. On the remainder
of the front from Loos to Arras, there
was no counter-attack yesterday.
"Following the bombardment of
Dunkirk, reported yesterday morning,
during which three shells fell but with
out hurting anybody or inflicting any
damage, the Germans threw 11 shells
on the Town of Bergues. five miles
south-southeast of Dunkirk. Twelve
persons were killed and 11 wounded.
Our batteries at once opened fire and
they put a stop to the shelling of the
enemy, which was not resumed during
the day.
"On the rest of the front there has
been nothing to report.
"One of our aviators yesterday
bombarded a hangar for dirigible
balloons at Maubeuge and started a
fire. An aviator of the enemy threw
bombs on the railroad, station at
Doullens, 20 miles north of Amiens,
but without doing any damage. An
other aviator of the enemy, pursued
between the Argonne and the Meuse
by a French airman, was compelled
to come down within the German lines,
where his machine took fire.

aration for any damage in the war
zone to neutral vessels, will not affect
the determined course ot the Presi
dent.' It was considered by the Cabi
net today, but high officials later
pointed out that there is no guaran
tee in it that the lives of Americans
will be safeguarded, as submarines
cannot accommodate passengers or
crews of the vessels they attack.
It developed In the course of the day
that serious consideration had been
given to the status of Dr. Bernard
Dernburg, ex-German Colonial Secre
tary, who has been in this country for
several months past as a spokesman for
the German cause. The statements ot
Dr. Dernburg justifying the torpedo
ing of the Lusitania as an incident of
war, taken in connection with other
utterances, are understood to have met
with strong disapproval in high ex
ecutive quarters.
Precedents Are Kxamlned.
This has led to some examination of
precedents to see what courses are
open to the Government to restrict the
embarrassment which many of the offi
cials feel has resulted from his activity.
The departure of Dr. Dernburg or the
cessation of his activities would, it is
intimated, not be unwelcome to the
authorities here, to say the least.
The White House staff was busy to
day with a deluge of messages almost
unprecedented in magnitude. Many
from Governors of states, members of
the Senate and others comprised reso
lutions of state Legislatures. The tele
grams almost unanimously - expressed
confidence in the President in the pres
ent crisis. They indicated that popular
feeling over the disaster had by no
means diminished. While most of the
messages expressed the desire that
something be done to show the indigna
tion of the United States over the sink-
ng of the Lusitania. many of them
strongly oppose a recourse to war.
messages Delivered to President.
All of the messages were delivered to
the President and it was expected that
he would go over as many of them aa
The President took a motor ride
after the Cabinet meeting and later
reviewed the Washington High School
cadet corps. He secluded himself
again tonight in his study, perusing, it
was believed, editorial opinion and
messages. The belief grew in many
quarters that he would communicate
directly with Emperor William when
he came to a decision. During the
present war he has on a previous oc
casion written personally to Emperor
.Nicholas of Russia on behalf of Aus
trian prisoners, and to adopt this form
of communication, it was suggested,
would make it possible for the Presi
dent to devote his message to the gen
eral cause of humanity rather than
any specific case which the regular
form of diplomatic correspondence
might necessitate.
The fact that Mr. Wilson said today
ne was not .reierring in nis speech in
Philadelphia last night especially to
the Lusitania tragedy was taken in
many quarters to mean that he had in
mind the broader idea of humanity.

the United States should set other na
