(10.40 a. m.)--(By the Associated Press.)—The Germans last night and early today were attempting to remove their artillery tnrough the tpwn of Vlgneulles under the stress Ot the American attack on the St. Mlhlel' i&lienl. - Tiey were stacles, would still help them, Herr Von Payer said: Says We Lack Coal. "If we lack cotton and oils, our enemies lack coal. Food is scarce.] here and there, but already things probably have turned in our favor. In the east the world is again open to us for a food supply, while our enejnles' supplies of foodstuffs and raw materials give precedence to the front's calls for America's armies and their provisioning." Tho speaker said that the Germans buve only to see that Ihe war continues to be waged In a foreign country', that the Uermans aro fighting for their lives and- their homes and that Uio enemies' only hope is that Uio Ciennans might collapse Inwardly sooner than they. He usserted that enemy attempts to SOT discord were unavailing and thut Uio Germans were strong enough to reach u decision "in our differences of opinion regarding economic power and political rights, even down to the food question." . Must Hold Together. Herr Von Payer urged tho necessity of the Germans holding together in the hour of danger and said that disappointed hopes must be prevented, justified hopes fulfilled and actually existing wroiiKs redressed. Regarding Uio Prussian suffrage bill, which ho considered ot prime importance, he said that "it iu no longer Prussian but eminently a German queslou," anil uu Its decision de- ponds Uio confidence which the population placos in the Prussian and the imperial government. Further postponement, bo said, is not permissible, adding "moreover jt is my belief that the decision of the lYussiaji government may be regarded as already token and if equal suffrage does not Issue from tbo committee of Uio upper house, the government will proceed lo dissolution." Not Customary Peace. Herr Von Payer considered that tho present' terrible struggle would nof end wlUi a poaco of the customary character. A mere glance at the stato of completo exhausUon of Uie world includes such a possibility, he said. ' "In former peace negotiations," ho said, "tho middle and the lower classes,^ when it came to tho council time, fell quleUy into the back ground. This now is over and the governments will conclude Uie coming peace treaties in close harmony wilh tho enUre people, "The main thlni: fur them In peace again when a barrago was laid down lo prelect the soldiers ae iho>- approached the German trenches. All Branches of Service. Into the battle has been brought, all the elements of modern warfare. While the artillery was playing Us role, the airmen and tho tank crews worked over their machines preparatory to taking their part in Ihe biggest "show" the Americans have given. There was no question of aerial supremacy, or should not be. French planes and French airmen supplemented the American forces and daylight saw them already in operation. It rained In the night and the early hours or the morning did not afford the best opportunity for Uie aviators but notwithstanding Lhe mist the squadrons appeared with the, dawn, ready for observation of tho defense and for offensive combat. There was a high wind. The wmoko screen the American gunners placed about Montseo appears to have been successful in preventing tho enemy observaUons from that commanding point. How Many Troops?* While the heavy attacks were being made on the; north and south lines of St. Mlhlel sector, a force around the point of the angle was Inaugurating a series of raids, rushing far inlD tho sides of tin? German body. The strength of Ihe Germans is not known, but it is certain there are at least seven divisions in the calient. Americans Everywhere. But it lias been learned the enemy has collected a quantity of stores In the sector and will doubtless attempt to remove them. The front under attack was about forty-five mllets in length. The French were in the line at allotted points. But tho distribution of Ihe forces was sucli thut wherever tho Germans turned they faced American troops. How Much Surprise? Just how much the Germans were surprised by the offensive in a sector so long Inactive is uncertain, it seen.'b not improbable, however, that they had noticed the Indications given for many days past that some now plan was being adopted. The mobilization of the big forces was accomplished, however, almost, wholly In night, marches, the men slipping from other sectors into positions in front of Ihe enemy here, often Utiles without, even the populuUou of the disirictu through which they parsed being uwaru uf the movement. Hammered Four Hours. The guns that opened tho artillery preparation at one o'clock continued for four hours to hammer the Germans, not alone their nearby positions but almost every crossroad, village and town within range. The roads over which the enemy might bring up roiufoixumeuts or retreat viere broken up with high explosive). The artillery attack was carefully planned, every battery commander having painstakingly registered long In advance the objectives of his guus. The full oftect of tho terrible bombardment could not be observed, but U.ero is little doubt that it had an Immense effuct in interfering wivh the defensive work of the big German force in the salient. President Wilson Sends an Ultimatum to Striking Machinists. Washington, Sept. 13.—Striking machinists at Bridgeport, Conn., have been notified by President Wilson that, unless they return to work and abide by the wage award of the war labor board they will be barred from employment for a year and draft boards will be instructed to reject any claim of exemption from military service based upon their alleged usefulness on war production. The president's warning went today in a letter addressed to the machinists, replying to resolutions forwarded to him announcing the strike because ot dissatisfaction over the war labor board's award and later tho interpretation by an umpire. The letter was addressed to the Bridgeport Lodge of tho International Association of Machinists, and "others striking workmen of the Bridgeport, Conn." It follows: The Letter. "Gentlemen: 1 am in receipt of your resolutions of September lilh, announcing that you have begun a strike against your employers in Bridgeport, Conn. You are members of the Bridgeport branches of the International Union of Machinists. As such, and with the approval of the national officers of your union, you signed an agreement to submit the questions as to the terms of your employment to Ihe- national war labor board and to abide (lie award which in accordance with the rules of procedure approved by me might, be made. "Tho members of the board were not able to roach unanimous conclusion on all the Issues presented and as provided Im its constitution the questions upon which they did not agree were carried before an arbitrator, the unanimous choice of tho members of lhe board. "The arbitrator thus chosen has made an award which more than ninety per ceut of the workers affected accept. You who constitute less than ten per cent refuse to abide by the award, i.Uhough you aro the beBt puld of the whole body of workers affected, and are, therefore, least untitled lo press a furl hist- increase of wages because of the high cost of living. But whatever the merits of the testio it is closed by the award. Your strike against It is u breach of faith calculate. 1 to reflect TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY. Al'Pl.KS. Jonathan, Grimes Gulden.
