Mayence bridgeh'ead, were ordered forward by Marshal Foch following the 1 efforts on the part, of the French government to induce the Berlin government to withdraw. its. forces from the neutral zone along the eastern bank of the Ehine, where they had been ordered to. disperse communistic units that for the last fortnight have conducted a revolt in the Euhr valley. Germany Must Pay Bill.. , Stirring scenes at Mayence are described by Henry Bidou, military .critic of the Journal des Debats, in a telegram to his paper. He says that during the afternoon troop 'activity began and .soon auto trucks and field kitchens began moving eastward, accompanied, by Moroccan troops with machine guns.

This query, was put to Premier Millerand by the Echo do Paris last night, the premier answering: jf "England was victorious, and so was France. I am confident everything will work out perfectly." Asked who would pay the'-expense incident to occupation, M. Millerand replied: "Why, Germany, obviously, since it was she that by her 'acts obliged us to resort to coercion."
