New York, July 18.—Pa: ment of
certain premiums above the posted
prices of crude oil, was recommended
in a plan for the stabilizing f prices
in the Appalachian, Mid-< mtinent
and Gulf Coast fields submitted to-
night to M. L. Requa, directed p-neral
of the oil division of the National
Fuel Administration, by A. I . Bed-
ford, chairman of the Nat -aal Pe-
troleum war servicf committee, rep-
resenting the oil industry.
The plan, which is to remain in force
until November 1, also is intended
to assist the continuous and uninter-
rupted flow of oil through its present
channels. No recommendations for
the Rocky Mountain and Pacific coast
oil fields will be made now. Mr. Bed-
Repeated advances in crude oil
prices, and the fact that tempting
premiums above posted rates were be-
ing offered to producers, met with a
rebuke from the oil division of the
Fuel Administration several weeks
ago. It was declared the government
would look with disfavor upon any at-
tempts to further advance prices
The committee recommended the
large purchasing companies in the Ap-
palachian and Mid-Continent divisions
continue to purchase crude oil at
their posted market price, and that
all other purchasers "who now pay a
premium be hereafter permitted to
pay a premium"—which in the Appa-
lachian District shall not exceed ten
cents a barrel and in the Mid-Conti-
nent field shall be as follows:
For gushing crude a maximum price
of 75 cents per barrel; for Garber and
all Billings crude a maximum pre-
mium of $1; for Kay county crude a
maximum premium of 60 cents; for
Healdton crude a maximum premium
of 30 cents.
1 or all other crudes for the Mid-
Continent Division, including Kansas,
Oklahoma and Northern Texas, a
maximum premium not to exceed 23
cents a barrel would be permitted
with the strict understanding that in
no district in which premiums are be-
ing paid of less than 25 cents a bar-
rel will the Oil Administration permit
the paying of a higher premium than
now is in effect.

Thousands of Prisoners, Guns and
Munitions Captured in Counter
Offensive Near Soissons.
Washington, July 19.—From the re-
gion west of Soissons to the north-
west of Chateau Thierry, American
and French armies have begun a
strong offensive against the Germans
which possibly may have a marked in-
fluence on the future of the world
war. In its initial stage, the move-
ment has been regarded with great
All along the twenty-five miles the
French and American troops have
dashed in brilliant fashion across po- !,
sitions held by the Germans, killing,
wounding or capturing thousands of |
the enemy and taking twenty towns
and villages and large quantities of
guns and other war supplies.
Nowhere, according to last accounts
from the front, has the enemy been
able to stay the progress of their as-
sailants, although counter attacks
were resorted to on some important
sectors after the first stages of sur-
prise occasioned by the unexpected
attack had worn away.
To the Americans alone, in the re-
gion west of Soissons, came 4,000
prisoners, thirty guns and much war
material. Additional large numbers
of captives and further greater stores
of guns, ammunition and other war
necessities were taken by the French.
Before all the positions of the Ameri-
cans and the French, their guns and
machine guns cut to pieces, are flee-
ing hordes of the enemy or bands
which endeavored to withstand the
Vital Territory Gained.
The blow, probably long in its in-
ception, is being aimed at territory
vital to the Germans—territory the
capture of which not alone would
mean forced retirement of the Ger-
mans from the entire salient extend-
ing southeastward across the occu-
pied region from Soissons to Rheims
with Chateau Thierry its southern
apex, but possibly would result in the
capture of thousands of Germans
operating there, many of them com-
prising the best •soldiers of the Ger-
man emperor's armies.
So fast has the advance progressed
that already French and American
troops have reached or are astride
several of the important roads of sup-
ply for the German armies in the
south, particularly the line running
from Soissons to Chateau Thierry. \t
is not improbable by reason of this
fact and the inability of the enemy
instantly to remove them that further
large quantities of supplies will be
Huns Held Along Marne.
Six miles apparently was the deep-
est point of penetration made by the
Allied troops in the first day of fight-
ing. This was at Buzancy, south of
Soissons, which they captured and
passed through eastward. At several
other points distances of from four to
five miles were reached from the orig-
inal starting line.
At Soissons the Americans and
Frenchmen came to within a mile of
the city. Altogether more than twen-
ty villages fell into the hands of the
Americans and French all along the
Washington, July 19.—With every
official dispatch reporting the Ameri-
can forces still forging on at a head-
long pace taking towns, guns and
prisoners by the thousands, joy over
the victory won is now joined with a
supreme confidence that the turning
point of the war is at hand.
After scanning the details of the
brilliant and spectacular outflanking
movement the Americans suddenly di-
rected at the Germans southeast of
Soissons, general staff officers, who
long have contended for counter of-
fensive tactics, declnred their convic-
tion that the Allies are about to wrest
the initiative from the Hun along the
entire battle front.
Hun Drive Slows Up.
Washington, July 18.—Although the
Germans are still attacking the Allied
lines viciously on both sides of the
Rheims salient, what gains they are
making continue to be small ones on
isolated sectors and seemingly are
confined to the region along the
Marne and immediately southwest of
Eastward from the Cathedral city
through Champagne the French re-
port that'they everywhere are hold-
ing the enemy and keeping their line
intact, notwithstanding the prodigious
expenditure of shells by the Germans
and the determination with which
their troops are delivering their
Everywhere the battles are being
stubbornly contested, and where the
French and Italians have been com-
pelled to give ground it has been only
after the infliction of extremely
heavy casualties on the invaders.
Americans Advanced Lines.
The Americans nowhere have been
forced to withdraw.
On the contrary near Fossoy, near
the bend of the Marne between Cha-
teau Thierry and Dorinans, they have
made further improvements in their
positions. Like their French com-
rades in arms, the Americans also
have been engaged in violent fight-
ing with the enemy.
Daily it becomes increasingly ap-
parent that the strategy of the Ger-
man high command in the present
battle has foremost in its considera-
tion the blotting out of tho Rheims
salient and the straightening of the
line eastward through Champagne
toward Verdun. The hardest fighting
of Tuesday was southwest of Rheims,
where the enemy is endeavoring to
break through the hill and forest re-
gion, reach the railroad running from
Rheims to Epernay and force the
evacuation of Rheims.
Small Hun Gain.
In these endeavors, the German war
office asserts the Germans .have
driven back the Allied troops on the
mountain of Rheims between Man-
tenal and north of Pourcy, the last
named place being a scant five miles'
distant from the Rheims-Epernay
railroad. The French official com-
munication admits that the Germans
hold the line west of Nanteuil-La
Fosse, about a mile and a half south
of Pourcy and relatively five miles
west of the railroad.
German Drive Halted.
Washington, July 17.—The German
offensive east and west of Rheims has
had the brakes vigorously applied to
it by the strong resistance of the
American, French and Italian armies.
Nowhere has the enemy found it
possible, as in days gone by, to press
forward and tear his way through op-
posing positions to points of vantage
chosen as early objectives.
True, some gains have been made
by the Germans, but they are infi-
nitesimal when compared with those
of other attacks.
Instead of in miles they may be
reckoned almost in yards. And from
some of the positions captured the en-
emy has been ejected summarily un-
der vicious counter attacks delivered
by the American troops fighting alone
as a unit and Americans fighting
alone as a unit and Americans fight-
ing shoulder to shoulder with their
French comrades in arms.
Huns Admit Defeat.
Tacit admission that the enemy
hordes have been retarded in their as-
saults, if not halted, seemingly is con-
tained in the latest German official
communication, which, in dealing with
the fighting of Tuesday, asserts that
the Allied troops on the Marne front
have delivered "violent counter at-
tacks," and that to the east of Rheims
"the situation is unchanged." The
only claim made to any success by the
Germans is that there were "some
local successes to the southwest of
The successes of the Americans and
the French give back to them points
of strategic value on the heights
dominating the Marne valley. The
Americans alone recaptured Fossoy
and Crezancy, five and six miles east j
of Chateau Thierry, and at one point
near Fossoy drove back the enemy
across the river and took a number
of prisoners. Aided by the French,

and La t^iapelle Monthodon, in a ra-
dius of five miles south of Donuans,
With the French Army in France, |
July 17.—Having met defeat in every j
effort to advance today east of Rheims |
the Germans turned their attention
toward pushing the advantage they
had gained west of that city. Strong
columns which crossed the Marne
tried throughout the day to ascend
the river on both banks toward Eper-
nay. Their powerful dashes were met
steadily by the French, who contest-
ed every foot of ground.
Battles proceeded simultaneously
on the right and left banks of the
river.. The German line of advance
appears to be Venteull on the north-
ern bank and Oeuilly on the south-
ern. The position is somewhat con-
fused tonight and it is difficult to
tell where the opposing columns are.
