Zbe tribune Tuead&y. September 12. 1916 Sfi The steady pressure of ihe armies of the Allies continues. I lie gieat Russian General Bri.siloff says "I hate lulls". Well, that seems to be the idea of all our Generals in all p .,rts. In some places, such as Salonika and Asia Minor, an occasion al pause seems unavoidable just now, but everywhere else the Eotent* forces give the foe no iest. Here is how Mr. Lloyd George puts the situation: ••The nippers are gripping and it will not be long bel re we begin to hear a crack." |j e joes „n to say: "When we shall be in a position to extract Die kernelwell, that is another metier, It depends mi the policy,and I say at once that, having'entered up on the quarrel, we shall see that there will not he another war in oar day. According to the measure of our sacrifices must be the vigour of our demand." Sir Douglas Haigevi dently hates lulls. He is Keep im,' np hissvstem itic battering. of German lines, and is relent lessly eating his wav through their wonderful defence*. His artillerv still serves him splen didlv This is what is said con Corning an advance bevond Pozieres: "Heavy guns and field guns alike seem to have done admirably. So completely had the German trenches been bat tered that our initial attack was delivered in plain daylight over the open ground, almost without casualties.'' Roumania with Russian aid, is recovering ground lost to the Bulgarians, who had Turks and Germans to help them.

German Defences on
The Somme.
The Formidable Lines Carried.
AN examination of w hat re-
iuain>. (if ltie old Geiman
hrst line enables one to realize
tinr iaUnse difficulties wliicli
have been and ere still to be,
overcome by the British Army
on the Sorame, and to appreciate
the inevitable delays which
there must be in carrying out
their achievement to the full.
The firing trenches are so shat
terd that, ill most places, it is
difficull to judgeo( their qunlil
ty, but wh.it are really reiiuuk
able, for their military value,
are tome of the communication
trenches and the dug outs. One,
at least, of the surviving cum
mtinication trenches is a tunnel
more than a hundred yards long.
Completely lined with timber,
and can icd SO deep underground
as to be secure against every
tlnng except mining.
The larger dug outs are enter
c! through a steel door, from
winch there is a thiitv-foot
staircase, in which the face and
tra id of each step arc well made
of wood. At the foot of the
stairs there are spacious rooms,
in which floors, walls, and roofs
are closely boarded. The con
necting passages are equally
finished, and a second thirty
foot staircase leads down
to a second group of rooms
treat-'il in.*'i* same way. In one
dug nirJ'tyVliPre an extension
eras being made when the line
was captured, there is to be
seen an ingenious mechanism
for sending excavated earth,
ready packed in sandbags, for
use in the trench above. Anoth
er is arranged as a hospital,
with two tiers of bunks as in an
English hospital ship, to hold
Mime 30 patients. Each of these
larger dugouts would easily
house a whole platoon and give
il complete security under sv
ere artilleiy lire unless a high
explosive shell or mortar should
find its way in at the door.
It must not be supposed that
all the German dugouts are of
'.hi- excellence. No doubt only
the best have escaped destruc
tiou. Iiv.it the military use of
ever) such dug-out is great. Ii
keeps down casualties under
bombardment ; it can shelter x
reserve of machine guns until
the moment of our advance;
when our troops reach the Ger
man trenches it is difficult to
clear, perhaps even to find ; and.
if it is left uncleared in the rear
of our advancing men, its oc
CUpants ma\ emerge and harass
them Irom the rear with rifle
and machine gun fire
Another formidable detail of
the German defences is the
trouble taken to provide effec
tive posts for snipers. i\ typical
post, near Fricourt, is the mouth
of a small, deep manhole, such
ns is used in London streets to
five access to sewers. It reaches
the sin face near the highest
point of a piece of high ground
the opening is screened by the
casual looking debris of a hioken
cart, and at the bottom of the
manhole a tunnel connects it
with the the German trenches.
Inch manhole of this kind is
well squared, full timbered, and
fitted with convient iron rungs.
Chain of Fortified Villages
Apart from trenches, each suc-
cessive German line includes a
chain of fortified villages and
woods. Annmg the ruins of Mam
etz may be seen the remains of
a typical improvised foitthe
oval basemen! of a.largecottage
from which machine gun fire
could be directed through loop
holed walls towards almost any
point of the compass, so as to
rake advancing troops at every
Stage of their progress. House-
to house fighting is, in any case,
notoriously trying. In the Pic
ardy villages it is practised by
the Germans with unqestiouable
method and energy, as is also
the defence of woods complice t
ed with ho bed wire which, from
the nature of the ground, connot
easily be destroyed by artillery
fire
Up some three miles, roughly
speaking, of irregularly rising
ground, barred at short inter-
nals by lines of the obstacles
I Ikmc described, our troops have
now forced back the Gormans,
along a front of about six miles,
between Pozieres and Guille
mont. Along this front we now
[hold firmly the second of the
three systems of German delen
ces. We have made temporary
inroads, notably at the Hois de
I-oureaux, into their third line,
for the tactical purposes of the

into Bapeume, It is a situation
to be regarded with quiet con
fulence, as the Army on the
Somme regards it, but it is well
that people at home should not

What the fighting has proved

The steady pressure of ihe ar-
mies of the Allies continues.
I lie gieat Russian General
Bri.siloff says "I hate lulls".
Well, that seems to be the idea
of all our Generals in all p.,rts.
In some places, such as Saloni-
ka and Asia Minor, an occasion
al pause seems unavoidable just
now, but everywhere else the
Eotent* forces give the foe no
iest. Here is how Mr. Lloyd
George puts the situation: The
nippers are gripping and it will
not be long bel re we begin to
hear a crack." |je joes n to
say: "When we shall be in a
position to extract Die kernel-
well, that is another metier, It
depends mi the policy,and I say
at once that, having'entered up
on the quarrel, we shall see
that there will not he another
war in oar day. According to
the measure of our sacrifices
must be the vigour of our de-
mand." Sir Douglas Haigevi
dently hates lulls. He is Keep
im,' np hissvstem itic battering.
of German lines, and is relent
lessly eating his wav through
their wonderful defence*. His
artillerv still serves him splen
didlv This is what is said con
Corning an advance bevond
Pozieres: "Heavy guns and field
guns alike seem to have done
admirably. So completely had
the German trenches been bat
tered that our initial attack
was delivered in plain daylight
over the open ground, almost
without casualties.'' Roumania
with Russian aid, is recovering
ground lost to the Bulgarians,
who had Turks and Germans to
help them. We hope that be
fore long Bulgaria may feel the
squeezing of the nut crackers
from the Danube and Dobrudja
on the one side and from the
Saloniki front on the other.
:o;
11 is Excellency the Governor
has taken a great interest in the
Crooked Island and Acklm's
Island district, which has ruf
fered severely through cessation
of Stevedore labour. The (iov
ernor is anxious to encourage
the growing and cleaning ol
sisal on those needy islands,
where the fibre industry has
been comparatively eglirtid.
To stimulate effort 11m l-..\l
lency is offering a belt at 11
Christmas prize for the hi -'
specimen of cleaned sisal W e
have been privileged to see the
belt, which is of bell pigskin,
with two pouches and nickel
plated chain with swivel, and
a beautiful hunting knife made
by the great Sheffield firm of
Rogers. Whoever wins the belt
will secure a very fine prize.
We are very pleased to learn
that our esteemed U. S. Consul
W. F. D>ty, Esq. has been pro.
