Grench won yesterday in a renewal of
J the jSomme assault, were repulsed today.
I The victorious French troops threw the
iTcptons back in disorder inflicting
heavy losses, and have consolidated and
strengthened their positions materially.
' The official statement today reported
French successes everywhere along the
line. It indicated the heaviest fight

The iron works in the British seaport
city of iSeaham were shelled by a Ger
man submarine on July li, according to
an admiralty statement today.
Submarine operations along the enst

seven British steam trawlers and two

Chicago's colored regiment, the
Eighth,' adds variety anil even snappi

colored troops to ride in the Jim
Crow section of the street cars, San
Antonio southern style, but while in
vestigating various textures today I
encountered Col. F. 'A. A. Dcnison, col
ored, chief of the negro regiment, who
said: . ,
"1 think we have the only dead
sure American regiment in the entire
lot. The other regiments have got all
kinds of folks in them, but we're nil
the same. We are so American tlfat
we obey the San Antonio laws and
ride in separate compartments of the
street cars, but the other day when

C. A. club to which colored men were
not admitted, I told the Y. M. C. A.
authorities I couldn't vouch for the
safety of the building. If my men got
at it, I couldn't keep them from tear
ing it down, and 1 wouldn't.
"The Y. M. C. A. people understood
and one of them told mo privately,
'1 respect you for your action.'
"It looks very much now," and Col.
Denison's eyes twinkled, ;"as if my
attitude will result in my regiment
having a very fine Y. M. O. A. build
ing of its own."
These negroes are crackerjack Amer
icans, as much a part of the American
army as any other regiment. It's the
same coat, and Uncle Sam has got
some tailoring on hand. The more I
see of it, the more I think tho material
is tho best in the world.
Rumor of Naval Battle.
London, July 21. Reports that Dan
ish sailors arriving from the North
sea today heard the roar of heavy guns
at sea, led to rumors that there may
have been an engagement between Rus
sian and German vessels. There have
been no official dispatches yet to sup
port the rumors.
