They added two barrages of fire. One was a wall of projectiles dropped in frpnt ,of the German front linn trenches. It was to stop all possibility of enemy attacks as well as to blast away German barb-wire defenses and clear entanglements away preparatory to a Krench advance. The second barrage was at the" left of the lines. It's purpose waS to cut off all supplies and communication. Together the barrage served to isolate the German trench defenders from all human aid. The French carried out this plan over more than 8 miles of front, in a spot long previously chosen for their attack. They made this eight miles of German trench work a shell- rimmed furnace. As night continued It seemed as though a new maximum of intensity of fire was attained every minute. Not for a second did the terrible barrage fire relax, nor the methodical long range shells cease pounding.

The detailed offer of American shipping to our European allies and organization of the "apati tip ' program for building more ships. The agreement of the United States government, over the objection of certain members of the war college, to send troops to Europe at once if they are wanted. French. English and American war commissioners today were' exceedingly skeptical of any peace move, however, seemingly attractive which Bethmann-Hollweg may hold out tomorrow. There is a feeling in official circles that the ulterior motive of the projected peace proposal Is three-fold: To capitalize a last, dying hope that the United States can be swerved from active participation in the war. That German separate peace propaganda i0Russia may crystallize and a separate peace be manipulated. And that wavering South America, the country to which German eyes turn hungrily and hopefully according to the allied commissioners now here, may be reset at normal and kept out of tbe war altogether. Germany, the allied commissioners here said today, can make a superficially magnanimous peace offer by- giving up everything but her corridor into Turkey and still be victorious. The "moral effect troops,"—probably about two thousand marines or militia which France wants at the front at once, will be sent. The government's offer to send a large army in small groups, beginning immediately is before the European allies today. This would obviate employing great blocks of shipping by send ing the armies en masse. . IS REPORTED; Captain Harris Of Steamer, Vacuum And Four Bluei Jackets Among Those Saved. ' By I'nited Pres*.
