BOOMS WITH VOTES
FOR MANY LADIES
Creat Special Vote Offer of 250,000 Extra Votes For Each
Club of $25 in New or Renewal Subscriptions Causes
Candidates to Be Up and Doing Every Moment.
Special Vote Offer Good Until 10 P. M.,
Saturday, June 15th -
Since the publication of the differ
ent young ladies' names that have
been nominated to compete for the
various awards in the New Era Cir
culation Campaign of The - Dispatch,
interest has increased by leaps and
bounds, never in the history of news
paper campaigns and especially in
Wilmington and vicinity have so many
Votes been cast for the different par
ticipants as upto ihe present time m
this campaign. There is not a young
lady, irrespective of the division in
.which she resides and whose name as
a participant was announced in The
Dispath on Tuesday, that has not
been the recipient of many votes.
When one considers that each young
lady nominated has been voted for a
'number of times there can be easily
. realized the interest that their friends
are manifesting for them. If the dif
ferent candidates would co-operate
readily with their friends who seem
to be displaying greater effort now
than the candidates themselves, they
would all be very successful. Now
The Dispatch can state that team
work is being manifested by all can
didates, in connection with their
friends, and the campaign is a real
ly a Hum Dinger, so" to say.
Great Special Vote Offer.
The great bargain special vote offer
for this week inclusive of Saturday,
June 15th, is most liberal and even at
such an early date of the week more
subscriptions have been received by
The Dispatch than all of last week
The great inducement is very tempt
ing and these columns will . repeat
again that for each $25.00 remitted by
ATLANTIC TO GULF
Gov: Hugh Dorsey Outlines
Plans at Meeting at
St. Mary's Go., June 12. Gov, Hugh
M. Dorsey, of Georgia, yesterday out
lined to a gathering of state Officials
from eorgia and Florida, prominent
men from many parts of the country
the proposed plans for linking the At
lantic ocean with the Gulf om Mexico
by means of an inland canal from St.
Mary's, Qa., to St. Mark's, Fla.
The "Atlantic to Gulf canal" con
ference, which convened here today,
after the delegates had spent Monday
inspecting the waterways' in this sec
tion of the state and northern Florida,
is being held under the auspices of
the Georgia council of defense.
In giving reasons why the canal
should be built, the governor asserted
that in his conception it appeared as
an extension of the Mississippi river
to the Atlantic coast.
The protected inland route through
Lake Ponchartrain, Lake Borgne and
along the northern coast -of the Gulf
of Mexico to St. Mark's river and the
canal from St. Mark's to Cumberland
sound, would extend the missippi to
Next to the Panama canal it would,
in my judgment, be the greatest trans
portation development from a national
standpoint that has been considered
in recent years.
TO SPEED UP DRIVE
Nature of Country, Hills, Val

With the French Army in France,
June 12. 'The difficulties confronting
the enemy are very-great to the na
ture of the country he has now en
tered in his new drive. The terrain
comprises sharp hills, deep valleys and
thick woods. Where his most pro
nounced progress has been made in
the center of the battlefield, the
ground forms a sort of hollow through
which rune the main road from Senlis
to Roy and the CompeignRoye rail

While attempting to do this the Ger
mans are coming under ' the fire of the
allied batteries and groups of machine
guns which possess the accurate
ranges of all points.
This fierce opposition offered, by the
allied troops appears -to have discon

which expected to b able- to reduce

The enemy guns were. very 'busy
throughout yesterday and last night,
but were well countered by the al

themselves than to the allies.
