London, Aug. 7. The German at lacked with stubborn fury at many points along the British tine to-d- making lavish use of artillery and mn In an effort to regain ground ftcently wrested from them. But, ac- cording to the British official report, their efforts had no effect save to tn- - erwse their staggering list of dead ind wounded and to throw Into Brlt-li- h hands many more prisoners. Northeast and north of Pozieres. there the Australian are holding with Joggtd tenacity the trenches recently won nt the bayonet' point, five epa- - late attack within twelve hour were ir.ade. Two of these were launched at daybreak, following a bombardment luting all night. The Herman brought themselves Into the contested territory In a determined charge, and tor a time the Issue wavered.

Here and there a section of an ad- - trtnee trench was captured, but before tin position could be organised to meet a counter attack the British reserves turfed Irresistibly onward, and the Ger- man occupants were either killed or cap-tare- At 1:50 o'clock two more attack ere made with an Identical reault.

An official statement from the Ger- man army headquatters at Berlin the capture of a trench at Po-ic- r. It Is the opinion here that this announcement was based on the tem- porary occupancy described In the Brit-ii- h report.

Aerial fights which attract sensational attention are only an Incident of the of fensive camplagn, Overwhelming num bera of aeroplanes are concentrated on the narrow front of the Somme battle In coordination with a superior, uncc.is ing volume of gunfire.

S$WL CAR STRIKES SETTLED FOR 7,600 MEN; GREEN AND RED LINES YIELD TO UNIONS; PEACE FOR 3 OTHER SYSTEMS TO-DA- Y WHITRIDGE PLEDGE TO ARBITRATE GIVEN Public Service Records Show That Oscar Straus's Charge Is True. DURING STRIKE IN 1913 Chairman Stevens Had the Promise of Railway Presi- dent Placed on Minutes. An examination of the records of the Public Service Commission, now temporarily In the possession of the Public Service Commission In this city, showed yesterday that Oscar H. Straus, chairman of the commission, was right when he said that Frederick W. Whit-ridg- e, president of the Third Avenue Knllwnv Comnanv. had failed to keen his promise to submit to arbitration tho i difference., between employees and the ' company. Chairman Straus had blamed Presi- dent Whltridge for the present Htrlke, and Mr. Whltridge, from his summer home In Scotland, denied that lie had mnde any such agreement as the Com- missioners charged. Mr. Whltrldur quoted. Mr. Whltridge said In 1913. when hu appeared before the Public Service Commission at the time of a strike on the Yonkers railroad, now part of the Third avenue system \1 hav e not only accepted your propo-- 1 jew are to to work morul- a I have asked the men to re-- , . . . .. ...

At that same time the question nf Mr. Whltrldge's posslbln violation of the agreement was touched upon. This came about when W II. Fltscernld, spokesman for the men. urged that the agreement be put In writing and signed by Mr. Whltridge. This was not done, however, because Chairman Stevens didn't think it was necessary, believing that tho of- ficial character nf the proceedings was sutnclently binding. Jle expressed this rp.nlon as follows: \My dear sir. If Mr Whltridge does rot stand by what the commission has said he eould not exist nor live In n civilised community fur live minutes. He could not do It. lie has got to stand by what he has said here apd It is not n mntter of personal recollection. \It Is a matter that will be record d here, nnd you will have a copy of It Jut exactly as It stood, and ir lie snniini or withdraw one hnlr fmm it, his ioltlon In this community In the city of New York would be absolutely Intoler- able, nnd he could not live here. The linger of scorn would be pointed nt him, nnd he would be ostraclied by all decent men.\ Oscar Straus, repenting bis charge that Mr Whltridge had brought on the strike of the Third avenue employees, said estcrday: \I don't go off half-cocke- d I am sorry that Mr, Whltridge does not remember the statement and repudiates It.\ AGAIN FOR POLICE. trlke Hrttlenient Ilejiilcea 1(00 llliieeonis Cniun Itrsnwril.
