Somrae Front-Battle Beginning Monday. Has Raged
By Ed L. Keen,
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
London, Sept. 28. The British drove on last night in
the great Somme battle which has raged unceasingly
since Monday morning and advanced their lines between
Martinpuich and Guedecourt, General Haig reported this
The new British thrust drew General Haig's lines
close to the village of Eaucourt L'Abbaye, east of which
2,000 yards of enemy trenches were captured in yester
day's fighting. The capture of this position, within sight
of the outskirts of Bapaume, is believed imminent.
The French made no new attacks last night but con
tented themselves with orgaizing their new positions.
The German war office this afternoon announced that
the allies had resumed the offensive with great violence.
The repulse of most of the allied attacks was reported at
Berlin, but it was admitted that some gains were made.
French correspondents today estimated the German
losses in this week's Somme fighting alone at nearly
50,000. Eight thousand Germans are said to have been
killed or captured, on a narrow mile and a half front
northwest of Les Bouefs.

ports following this with a declaration
The Greek legation today had no con
firmation of these reports. Diplomatic
circles, however, heard a rumor that
Alexander Carapanos, Greek foreign
minister and anti-ally in his sentiments,
resigned following a stormy session of
the cabinet . witli King Constantino.
Presumably his resignation followed the
king's reported decision to range his
armies alongside those of the ullies.

Berlin, Sept. 28. Interest centered
on Chancellor Von Bethmaun-Hollweg
and the fight to be waged against him
when the German reichstag recon
vened today for a three weeks' session.
Great crowds pushed toward the
reichstag building to hear the chancel
lor's opening speech, in which he wns
expected to throw down the gauntlet
to his critics. .
Before the session began, an nnti
Hollweg leader declared that if the
chuncellor promises a strong policy to
ward England he will receive the sup
port of the majority of the members.
This leader would not be more specific.
There were indications that the gov

London, Sept. 2rt. There is no end

"More than at any time since the
beginning of the war there is evidenced
throughout F.ngland a popular suspi
