PRINCE VERY SLOW
Critics in London View Situa

FACE SUPERIOR FORCES
Spirit of Confidence and Trust
in Foch's Handling of
AMERICANS SHOW GRIT
Crown Prince Has Been Forced
to Draw Upon Rupprecht
For Reserves, As Men
London, June 14. The German
crown prince continues his desperate
attempts to overcome the difficult for
est regions barring his way into the
Oise valley, and although by heavy
fighting he gets a little nearer to Com
plegne, his progress is very slow.
Thursday's reports are considered
satisfactory on the whole by observ
ers here. The enemy has progressed
about a mile on a very narrow front,
northeast of Villers Cottereta, but the
French troops are showing such de
termination and valor in counter at
tacks that although reports (rom Paris
intimate it may be necessary to give
further ground in the face of superior
numbers, there exists a spirit of quiet
confidence and" trust in General Foch's
prudent handing of the situation.
Both the French and German com
muniques indicate the terrible nature
of the struggle that Is proceeding, the
Germans having to admit the loss of
some guns. It i3 clear, too, that the
American forces in the region of Bour
esches are showing grit in holding off
te German attacks, which gives the
enemy great and unexpected trouble.
The battle is regarded here as a
contest between opposing reserves. It
is known that the crown prince has
been compelled to draw slightly upon
the reserves of Crown Prince Rup
precht of Bavaria, as some of Rup
precht's men have been identified
among the 20 divisions the Germans
have employed since June 9. The en
emy losses have been far heavier after
five days of bitter fighting during
which he only advanced about six
miles than during any previous en
gagement on the Alsne. The view of
military experts still is that the en
emy's last main attack has not been
delivered. There Is much speculation
whether the attack will be with the
aim of reachin Paris, or what is re
garded as mote likely, with the ob
ject of dividing the allied armies by
a drive for the coast.
BOARD REFUSES TO
(Special to The Dispatch.)
Raleigh, June 14. Declaring that
it has no power to order a second pri
mary in the Abernethy contest for
congress against Dortch in the third
district, the state board of- elections
yesterday adjourned until June 20,
when it will canvass the returns.
With two democrats -and two republi
cans on the board today, Pass being
aDsent, it was Impossible to agree that
the board could not go '"behind the
returns." The return of Pass will
solve this embarrassment. ' Aber
nethy's attorneys made terrific attacks
on ground of fraud.
Clarence Call, republican, held
against the opinion that a second pri
mary could not be ordered,, but Free
man, republican, voted wiili Lamb and
Claywell. democrats. Aberhethy has
more Affidavits en route alleging
fraud and irregularities.
