Russian Collapse Affects All
Theaters of War Except
Hun Colonies
LONDON. March 8. In his ad
dress before the rommons yesterday,
Andrew Bonar Law, chancellor of
the exchequer, said tbdt the break
down of Russia deeply af.eeted every
theater of war except the German
colonies, out of which the Germans
tad been -driven.
Referring to the Mesopotamia and
Palestine "-operations the chancellor
Mid he doubted whether it ever had
been possible to carry out the Brit
ish opertalons there by means of
troops transferred by pea. "When
we had tonnage to move troops by
-.tea,! he said, "we did not have suf
V ficient trained troops. Now the ton
Bage situation has made It impossi-y-
We to move a very large "force thnt
Exploitation Held Unlikely.
Turning to the west, Mr. Bonar
Law said that but for the Russian
collapse It might have been expected
that the war would have been over
a year ago. As for Russia herself,
the chancellor thought that there
was Justification in' thinking that
Germany would not be able to ex
ploit her. The German treatment of
Russia, he said, would certainly
create an intense feeling of hostility
s throughout Russia, wklle ultimate
German victory wiuld mean loss xf
hope for a free Russia.
"It Is obvious that the Germans,
having captured so vnany guns,
have a great superiority in guns;
hut the power of their artillery has
teen limited to a great extent by the
supply of ammunition, and I believe
It is needless to fear danger of su
periority in guns any more than in
mea. ois the western front. More
orer'our overwhelming air superlor-
. tty will go far to neutralize the su
periority in guns."
Son Killed as Flier.
X. In referring to the air service. Mr.
p Eortar Law momentarily broke down,
rememl rlnsj that his own son had
been killed in the flying service.
The house cheered in sympathy with
the chancellor. Quickly recovering

Pershing to Get Supplies for
Troops and French Credit
- Is Arranged
Expansion of Spanish Rail
way System of Big Im
portance to America
WASHINGTON'. March S Under
the i commercial agreement between
the United States and Spain, tho
formal signing of which in Madrid
was announced today at the state de
partment, not only will General Per
shing get the supplies from Spain
which he desires for his troops, but
a French credit in Spain is arranged
and the Spanish government permits
free export to the allies of pyrites,
minerals and manufactured wool.
These and other deails of tho
agreement, which becomes effective
immediately, were niadt public by
the, war trade board. Spain also will
permit the export of other commodi
ties to the extent that home re
quirements will permit. This is io
addition to the specific licencing uf
the supplies, required by General
Pershinr. which are understood to
include 20O,Oo blankets and a large
number of mules.
; French Get Hpanih Credit.
While conducting the negotiations
for this country, the American rep
resentatives, the board's statement
said, were able "to materially assist
the French government In securing
a larger credit In Spain to fipancc
payments for the supplies which the
republic draws from Spanish
In return for supplies granted
this country and the allies, the
statement continued, "the Unite I
States assures to Spain Its necessary
supplies, of cotton and petroleum,
the amount of the monthly export
of these commodities being fixed In
the agreement at a figure which will
cover the crennine '.'nanish reqnire
ments, but bar the possibility of 0er
man agents In Srain secretly buy.'ng
np stocks of cotton."
Concessions An Allowed,
"Spain is granted rther supplies,"
said the board, "to the extent that
they can be spared after satisfying
requirements in the United Statts
and providing for the needs of th
United States associates in the
war." Special concessions have
been made In regard to locomotives
and railway material, which are re
quired "to increase the carrying ca
pacity of the Spanish railway sys
tem, a measure of decided impor
tance to America and Its associates
whjflch are drawing airpplics from
SpanisJi territory.
Whether the agreement covers the
broad .question of Spanish shipping
was not disclosed. Before issuing
licenses for fuel coal for Spanifh
ships the board has been requiring
an agreement by the owners or char
ter parties to return the vessels to
the United States for cargoes. This
was done recently In the cases of
three ships at a culf port which
were loaded with supplies for tha
allies. The Spanish consul refused !
to let tho ships sail because he want-j
ed them to o to Spain after dis
charging, but his orders were with
drawn today after announcement or

LONDON. March 8. Serious fight
ing has 'taken place on the Yprer.
Dlxmude sector of the British front,
according to the British official
statement issued by the British war
office tonight. A German attack en
a front of more than a mile com
pelled some of the British advance
posts to fall back, but later a counter
attack rp?-established the British Una.
The text of the official statement
"Shortly before dawn today after
heavy artillery preparation, the
enemy delivered a strong attack on
a front of over a mile south of
Houtholst forest. On a greater part
of this front bis attack broke down
under the fire of our troops. At
one point, however, on the left our
line, where the attack was pressed
with great determination and sup
ported by troops carrying flame
throwers, some of the soldiers hold
ing our advance posts were compelled
to fall back a short distance on a
front of about 500 yards.
"Arter severe fighting later p the
morning a counter-attack was launch
ed by Yorkshire light infantry with
the result that the enemy's troops
were driven back a distance of 300
yards beyond their former front line
and heavy losses were inflicted upon
them. Our position are complete
ly re-established. Our casualties in
the enemy's original attack and. in
the.subseqeuent fighting were light.
"Sussex troops carried out a suc
cessful raid this morning east f
Laventie and with little loss to
themselves captured a few prisoners.
Hostile artillery showed considerable
activity today In the neighborhood of
Flesquieres jn the GIvenchy, Neuve

Pershing If olds Addresses
Disclose Identity of Units

-. )
Nearest Relatives of Soldiers
to Be Noticed by War
WASHINGTON. March 8. Issu
ance of daily lists of casualties among
the expeditionary forces abroad Mas
discontinued today by the public in
formation committee as the result of
an order of the war department un
der which the names of the next of
kin and emergency addresses of
soldiers whose names appear ori the
lists hereafter will be withheld. The
official explanation is that the pur
pose of the order is to keep infor
mation of value from the enemy.
On being informed of the order the
committee took the position that
long lists of men k'lled or wounded
would be worthless fo the newspaper
correspondents withe ut the address
es, and a notice was issued advising
the press that in futuie all informa
tion regarding casualties must be ob
tained from the war department. At
the adjutant general's office it was
stated that the lists without address
es would continue to be sent to the
committee and would be available
' 'rder to Be Permanent.
While the disagreement between
the committee and the department
probably will be straightened out
soori so that the "expurgated" lists
may be made available to all who de
sire' them, the purpose of the de
partment to withhold the addresses
apparently Is unalterable. Acting
Secretary Crowell SAid the order was
issued at the urgent recommenda
tion of General Persh'ng and that It
would be permanent. Both Mr. Crow
ell and Major General March, acting
chi-tfjOf staff, declared that the pur
pose Was to close up a channel
through which the enemy might ob
tain valuable information and both
disclaimed any Intention of seeking
to conceal heavy casualties reportp
from General Pershing.
"You may say for me," said Gen
eral March, "that the war depait
ment has not and will not hold up a
single name for an instant longer
than it takes to get it out."
Perwhlnfc Favors Plan.
The nearest relative of every sold
ier who may be killed or wounded
will be notified by the department as
heretofore. Lists containing simply
the names of the soldiers under the
heading "killed in action" or "died
rof disease" will be sent' each day to
;the committee on publican formation.
To give" but the lists in this shape,
according to officials of the commit
tee, would bring each day a flood of
requests by telephone, telegraph and
mall for specific ld4ntificatlon of
each man named in the list of the
previous day.
Unofficially it was said at the war
department that General Pershing
held that the publication of address
es with the casualty lists tends to
disclose the identity of units in the
trenches. Information which the en
emy is so desirous of obtaining that
many lives are risked in sending raid
ing parties to bring out a prisoner orJ
two to be examined ana quesnonea.
To the press the order means that
each newspaper must depend upon
the messages to relatives to get the
news of men-from its own community
who are killed or wounded.

Russians Resist Germans.
It Is revealed In late reports that
the retirement of the Germans from
Narva, west of Petrograd.-was a Te

Jamburg, 68 miles southwest of the
Russian Capital. This resistance may
be only a local instance of the dis
