The night fighting raged with great
fierceness for five hours. The Ameri-

Twenty-five Americans in Torcy en-
gaged and drove out 200 Germans, and
then withdrew to the main line on the
outskirts of the town.
The importance of the operations
of the Americans on the Marne sector
may be realized when it is recalled
that only the day before the Ameri-
cans entered the line the Germans
advanced about ten kilometers.
The Americans are now holding the
Paris road near Le Thiolet for a num-
‘ber of kilometers.
A remarkable story is told of a com-
pany of marines, #1 the officers of

Not one of our fellows hesitated in

“much for them.” =
Private Carl B. Mills of Visalia,

cans to 'go over the top in Veuilly
Wood to smoke out the Germans re-

unit attained its objective, many of
the men went back and filled the
ranks of their advancing comrades.
All moved like clockwork, he said.
The favorite slogan was, “Each

U BOAT SINKS NEUTRAL
Unarmed Norwegian Ship Vin-
land Bombed Off Virginia. |
Armed French Merchantman Reports
Fight With Submarine Off the
Washington. — Two more unarmed
merchantmen have been sunk in Amer-
ican waters by the U boat raiders,
bringing the total number of victims
up to 18. One was the Norwegian
steamer Vinland, sunk within 65 miles
of the Virginia Capes. The other was
an unidentified oil tanker, sunk within
100 miles of Cape Henlopen.
A French armed merchant ship
raced into an Atlantic port during the
day, reporting an encounter with one
of the raiders off the Virginia Capes.
' Thé sinking of the Vinland indicates
that the U boats have not put out to
sea or have returned to their secret
base, believed to be somewhere in
southern waters. Their continued ac-
tivity in harrying and destroying ship-
ping in the coastwise lanes was regard-
ed as proof they are receiving supplies
from a mother ship.
Destroyers, submarine chasers ana
vessels of the coast patrol are comb-
ing the waters in such numbers that it
is only a question of time when the
raiders will be destroyed or forced to
abandon their murderous campaign off
this seaboard. No relaxation of vigl-
lance, however, will follow even when
the raiders have been driven away.
It is believed that the U boats are
receiving information of the move-
ments of ships, and Byron R. Newton,
collector of the port of New York, is-
sued an order forbidding any commu-
nication with ships in the harbor.
The torpedoing of the British steam-
er Harpathian showed the reluctance
of the raiders to expose themselves to
any possibility of attack, and in prac-
tically every instance their victims
have been unarmed.
One explanation advanced for this
is that the raiders were sent here to
secure information and that the com-
manders have been ordered to take
back their reports without risking their
vessels. The information already In
their possession, it was said, would be
of value if it was planned to send sim-
ilar craft out from time to time to
harry the American coastline, always
with the possibility that a laden trans-
port could be caught.

British Steamer Torpedoed Without

Washington.—The navy department

Harpathian was torpedoed and sunk
about 100 miles east of the Virginia

Cape Henry, and was landed at Old
Point Comfort. One man was slightly
injured. The Harpathian was a 4,500
ton vessel. She was launched in 1906
on the Clyde.
TAX NEXT YEAR
McAdoo Recommends Revenue
Measure Which Strikes at Big
Earnings and Unearned Income
NEW WAR PROFITS TAX.
Says We. Will Spend 24 Billions Next
Year and Should Limit Loans to
16 Billions—Should Wipe Out
Inequalities and Raise Rates.
Washington. — Secretary of the
Treasury McAdoo made his recom-
mendations concerning the new war
revenue -bill. They virtually have
the approval of Congress in advance,
for members of the house and senate
charged with framing the new law
have beén working on lines identical
with those laid down by Mr. McAdoo.
In a letter to Chairman Kitchin of
the Ways and Means Committee he
said that the new bill should contain
the following provisions:
1—Double the revenue from
taxation, so as to raise $8,000,000,-
000 by taxes of the $24,000,000,000
he feels the government wil. need
2—Make the taxes on corporate
investments high enough to bring
them “more nearly on a parity
with the return from government
bonds,” and thus to make Liberty
Loan purchases the normal in-
vestment of war profits.
3—Tax away the’ excessive
profits on war contracts, to make
4. Lift the rate on so called un-
earned income from securities,
etc., from 4 per cent. to more than
12 per cent., while retaining the
12 per cent. as the rate on earned
incomes above the exemption
5—Impose heavy taxation an all
Congress, in advance of Mr. Mec-
Adoo’s recommendation, has been
studying the English system of war
taxation, which levies heavy taxes on
war profits and unearned incomes.
Definitely committed to the policy
that the greater burden of the new
war taxes should be imposed upon lux-
uries, war profits and incomes, the
Ways and Means Committee of the
house is holding meetings to frame the
The members of the committee are
firmly of the opinion that consumption
taxes on articles such as coffee, tea
and sugar should be imposed only as a
last resort. Every effort will be made
to raise at least three-fourths of the
$8,000,000,000 by means of taxes on
war profits and incomes. Incomes in
excess of $20,000 will bear the brunt
of the increase. To make up the bal-
ance the rates on all other articles
now included in the taxation measure
will be doubled or trebled.
In a general way, the rates will be
raised to the point of diminishing re-
turns, beyond which there should be
no profit in collection.
To simplify the collection and com-
putation of income taxes the law of
1916 and the law of 1917 will be re-
pealed, and the income tax provisions
will be entirely rewritten.
The treasury department’s estimate
of the amount that will be collected
on income and excess profits is $2,775,-
185,000. Members of the committee
thoroughly understand that from these
two sources almost three times this
amount must be collected.
It is not likely that any attempt will
be made to change existing tariff rates.
Republican members of the committee
will offer modifications of the tariff
law to raise a large part of the neces-
sary revenue, but the majority mem-
bers are opposed to opening up the
tariff question at this time. >

American marines have advanced two

Archibald S. Hurd declared the sug-

A wild dash by an American ammuni-
tion train on the day of June 2
helped save the day for the Ameri-
cans blocking the road from Cha-

vanced two and a quarter miles over

His Arrival in Switzerland Sug-
gests Exile or Peace Intrigue.
Zurich. — Prince Lichnowsky, Ger-
man ambassador at London when the
war opened, publication of whose
memorandum.tending to show Austro-
German responsibility for the conflict
had caused him to be threatened with
prosecution, has arrived in Switzer-
land. As the prince has a passport, it
is assumed that his presence in Swiss
territory is with the consent of the
German government. A rather strik-
ing coincidence that may point to an-
other explanation than exile is that
Lichnowsky arrives in Switzerland
just as the German press is reported
launching a new peace offensive.

With the French Army In France. —
Fighting in this war probably never
has been more severe than that going
on in the great battle of French and
German armies between Montdidier
and Noyon. :
Every foot of the enemy advances
now brings him farther into territory
which is thoroughly well known to
the allies and prepared for defense.
Therefore his task becomes momen-
tarily more difficult. The allied staffs
.1 are prepared to meet every eventual-
ity and display the most perfect con-
fidence in the outcome.
When the German infantry began
coming over in the densest masses
they encountered immediately an ex-
tremely hot fire from both machine
guns and artillery, which mowed them
down. Ever since, as fresh waves en-
tered the conflict, they were subjected
to similar punishment.
With the American Army In France.
—The United States marines attacked
the Germans after daybreak Monday
morning and penetrated the German
lines for about two-thirds of a mile on
a 600-yard front in the Belleau Wood,

edge of the wood. The Americans
captured two Minenwerfers, which are
the largest pieces yet taken by them.
