Americans Give Ground First,
and Then Overwhelm Foe.
Activity for Mot Part In Meuse TU
gloa Consists in Consolidation
of Doughboy Positions.
tBy the Associated Press. 10 P. M.) A
German attack in the region of Grand
Pre was repulsed. The Americans, for
strategic reasons, at f.rst gave a little
Kround; then rushed forward and swept
the Germans off their feet.
Activity on the American sector west
cf the Meuse was limited today, on the
American side, to the consolidation
and reorganization of positions recently
taken. On the other side the Germans
were strengthening their positions.
Loa-es Wood Consolidated.
The American consolidation work
was confined almost entirely to Lopes
wood. On the right of the wood, after
an artillery bombardment of two and
a half hours, the Americans began the
task of driving the Germans from
It a p pi's wood. Fighting continues in
the vicinity of Grand 1're. where the
Germans still offer bitter resistance.
All signs of a probable German with
drawal to the Kreya position, except
on the right, have ceased and the en
emy now seems determined to hold his
present positions as long as possible.
The German counter attacks are be
coming less frequent and it is learned
that Instructions have been issued to
the Germans not to undertake counter
attacks unless they are positively as
ured of success.
Weather Ifasapera Aetleav
Artillery and aerial activity was be
Iqsv normal today because of the poor
visibility due to rainy weather.
By the Associated Press. 7:15 P. M-)
By shoving ahead here and there tne
American line tonight rests across the
Freya defense position at several places,
the Americana on Sunday having made
light advances on the northern edge
of tbe Boia de Bantheville and In me
region of Bourrut, both of which points
are touched by the Freya line.
After an artillery preparation the
Americana cleaned up the Bois Kapiss,
taking more than SO prisoners.
Most of the resistance encountered
was from German machine-gun nests.
There were artillery outbursts at in
tervals during the afternoon.
Rumor of Design Against America
Are Declared Absurd New Era
Now Opening for Nippon.
TOKIO. Japan. Ovr. 1V fBy the Asso
ciated Pre.) Takashl Hara. Japan's
first commoner Premier and leader of
the Selyukwai parly, said today in his
first statement of his policies that
Japan had no ambition for aggression
or conquest: that the country had no
design except to be tn proper condition
for defense, and that the military in
fluence In Japan is not so dominant as
outsiders may believe.
.Speaking of China, Premier Hara said
he held to the open-door polity of the
Lanslng-lshli agreement and would
constantly adhere to the policy of non
interference in the internal affairs of
China. The same, he said, was true in
the case of Russia, where Japan only
wished a responsible government.
Japan, however, would never agree to
Russian domination by German in
fluence. In conclusion, the Premier 'declared
that Japan's expedition into Siberia
was the result of a consultation with
the I'nited States and the allies and
that Japan had no intention of taking
Independent action in the future.
Premier Hara declared that he was
amazed, on visiting America 11 years
ago. to hear fears voiced by some
Americans that Japan's military
strength was designed against America.
'This is, -of course, absurd," he said.
Premier Hara produced the impres
sion that Japan, which for SO years has
been largely ruled by bureaucrats, has
entered upon a new period of constitu
tional progress, in which popular opin
ion is more effectively to guide the na
tion's politics.
Beginning life' as a newspaper re
porter, Hara'a attainment to the Pre
miership is regarded as proving that
the time has arrived when in Japan, as
in America, any citizen can hope to rise
to places of the highest responsibility.

Teuton Officer Befriended by Fam-

One evening he failed to return lor

(Copyrlsht. 118. by the Press Publlshlns
Company, Tha New York World. Pub

PARIS. Oct. 20. (Special.) The bat
tle of liberation continues to develop,
particularly in the north. The German
resistance is very energetic in the east
along the Meuse. This is comprehen
sible. We have already explained why.
The German retirement which Is be
ing executed can be continued with any
liberty only so long as the Lorrame
Meuse pivot remains firm.
On the other hand, the German high
command gauges its honor in trying to
prevent an invasion of Germany, the
nearest threat of which is through Lux
embourg and Lorraine. The battle ef
fort is therefore astir In Belgium and
In Flanders. Marshal Foch, whose art
is to discern weak spots, has not hesi
tated in accentuating his movements in
the north.
Retreat Proving; Difficult.
German troops, abandoning their
heavy batteries, are retreating with
difficulty toward Antwerp. The Bel
gians are past Bruges, and their new
objective Is Ghent, on the Scheldt. Jt
can reasonably be asked if the German
Flanders army will be able to reach
the Antwerp-Scheldt line. It had little
room between the Belgian and the
Dutch frontier. There's reason to be
lieve the Germans will take up posi
tions behind the Scheldt. The German
official report says so implicitly.
Will they be able to maintain them
selves there? Their right would rest
on Antwerp, but the center Would be In
a bad position in a salient formed by
the Scheldt at Tournai, and their left
would have to retire as far as Val
enciennes and the forest of Ralsmes to
the north, where they could find an
original defensive line. It can be sup
posed the retreat will extend further
eastward. This depends on the advance
of the British armies in the region of
Landrecies, north of the Olse. The
Germans could find irood positions in
the forest of Morraal and around Mau-
Field Left Regretfully.
Friday I was at Laon and, from a
height in the old city dominated by its
great cathedral, still intact, I could see,
owing to clear weather, the Serre bat
tlefield. At my feet the French bat
teries rained shells on the German line
six or seven miles away to the north
In the distance the outskirts of the for
ests towards which the Germans were
retreating stood out on the horizon.
One realizes with what bitterness the
Germans abandoned the invaded tern
tory which they considered as a guar
antee of a peace of compromise. Never
theless they are retiring everywhere.
But they are leaving the country de
vastated. On my way to I.aon I crossed
the Soisonnais massif, the celebrated
Chemin dea Dames. Soissons is in
ruins, like Rheims, Arras, Lens, Bt.
Quentin and many other towns. In
many villages only threatening parts of
walls remain. Ihe ground has been
deeply destroyed and is chaotfo in many
parts. It will take years to restore
these regions for cultivation, as in the
"Inevitable," Hons Will Say.
The Germans will answer President
Wilson that all these ravages, all these
devastations are the fault of war. Al
ready they are reckoning the number
of allied shells fired on French and
Belgian towns.
It was said yesterday that one ot
Hlndenburg's factums reminded his
trooDS that they must not carry out
destructive operations, only in case of
military necessity. Yes. but there have
been systematically organised fires and
whole quarters of towns nave been
blown up after evacuation. Ana there
has been pillaging, the complete re
moval of everything of value which
could be utilized. There has been de

But let us find out those responsible

No armistice without military capitu

man territory.
The Germans remained mors than

soldiers should be stationed in German
territory all the time necessary to as

Presence of Lille Official Is Blade
Known When Policeman Tries to
Keep Him From Grandstand.
PARIS, Oct 20. With enthusiasm
unabated by a pouring rain, Paris to
day celebrated the liberation of French
towns from the enemy and opening of a
campaign for the new French loan,
American troops with the flag of the
301st Infantry headed a-parade of allied
soldiers. They were followed by Bel
gians, Brazilians and British and by
Greeks who had arrived in Paris this
morning from the Macedonian front.
Polish, Portuguese, Serbian and Czecho
slovak soldiers also were in line.
Policeman Halts Mayor.
As the people patiently awaited the
beginning of the speeches in the Place
de Concord, exchanging humorous and
witty remarks, a tall, distinguished
looking white-haired man was seen
forcing his way toward the stand. A
policeman halted him.
T am the Mayor of Lille," said the
man simply.
It was De La Salle, who arrived un
heralded. He received such an ovation
as never was witnessed before.
"It will remain in my memory until
the end of my days," said the Mayor
afterwards. "It is sufficient to erase
from my mind four years of nightmare
and servitude."
Today, was the first fete day that
Paris has observed since the war be
gan. On account of recent events on
the front the loan has been christened
the "Liberation Loan."
The Mayor of Rheim's in greeting
M- De Le Salle, said:
"We have suffered for France. Long
live France!"
People Cheer Speaker.
M. De Le Salle made a short speech.
His voice, enfeebled by four years of
suffering, bareljj carried beyond those
standing near him, but people further
away took their cue from the cheering
of those close to the speaker. The ad
dress was interrupted continually by
the affectionate expressions and cheer
of the crowd.
'For four years we asked one an
other, 'Shall it be tomorrow?'" said
M. De Le Salle. "That morrow came
Thursday. I was awakened during the
night by a Sergeant who presented a
requisition slip for 2000 suits of under
wear. When I reached the street the
Germans had gone without that par
ticular underwear."
Mayor De Le Salle was the bearer
of more than 10,000 letters sent by the
long-suffering citizens of Lille to rela
tives and friends.
The letters were delivered tonight.

More Meatless Days
Less Uric Acid
Meatless days will do as much to relieve sickness as to help
Uncle Sam. Meat is a good food, but a heavy food, and only
those who do hard work or get plenty of exercise can safely
eat meat two or three times a day.
Too much meat loads the blood with excess uric acid,
weakens the kidneys and causes backache, urinary disorders,
rheumatic pains and nervous troubles. It puts you in danger
of gravel, kidney stone or Bright's disease.
If your kidneys seem weak, change to a simple, light diet,
and take Doan's Kidneg Pills, the special kidney medicine so
well recommended by your own townspeople. .
Portland Experiences:
C. W. Burnett, 533 Lexington
Ave., says: "The constant jar
ring of the cars put my kidneys
in bad shape. Mornings my
back was so stiff 'and lame I
could hardly get up. My kid
neys were weak and the secre
tions scanty, and that caused
me considerable a n n o.y ance.
Every muscle of my back ached
and was sore and I was annoyed
by specks floating before my
eyes. Doan's Kidney Pills
flushed the congested kidneys,
putting them in good order and
then I was all right again."
