N EW YORK, October 29
(Associated Press) Bel-
gian soldiers, supporting and join
) ing with the French army to the
West of the DTiutholst Forest,
yesterday drove back the Teu
tons for a considerable distance
' ' and on a broad front, capturing
a number of important salients.
They thus made considerable
progress in the movements
against DLxmude, .
The French-Belgian attacks
and Successes of yesterday indi
cate that the idea of penetrating to
Dixmude through the forest has
been abandoned and the new tac
tics purpose to go around on both
sides of the low, swampy land
which is occupied by the Teutons
and to "squeeze" the enemy of the
pocket which the forest thus
forms and which they are.occupy
ing. . SQUEEZE ENEMY
, The drive of last week carried
the Allies well forward on the
east side of the forest and yester-
day's drive brought a similar ad-I
.Vance on the west. On the re
mainder, of the Flanders front
there' was little to report except
a continuance by the Allies of a
: violent artillery fire.
All day Sunday the French
were bombarding German posi
tions on the Aisne salient and an
advance toward Laon with at
tacks on several objectives in
that direction are indicated to
military observers.
' : ;'. GERMANS QUIET
On the lands skirting the Riga
and, Finland Gulfs the Germans
were reported to be quiescent.
In Esthonia Russians who were
. attempting to fraternize with the
Teutons were discovered and
were fired upon by their own ar
tillery. They were thus quickly
dispersed and fled back into their
own lines.
. . BRITISH AIR RAIDS
... British airmen continued their
attacks upon fortified positions
back of the German lines, going
long distances and taking muni
tion factories, supply houses and
arsenals as their targets. Several
tons of "bombs were showered
upon such positions.
, . No infantry attacks were made
by, the. British in Flanders and
they were allowed by the Teutons
to botd their recently acquired ob
jectives with no opposition other
than the Are of the artillery which
did not compare in effectiveness
with that of the Britons.

States taut year saved thousand but
the situation thia winter ii even mora
menacing.
Thousand Death Dally
A thousand death day from star
vation out of a population of 850,000
in the Lebanon Mountain near Beirut,
Syria, ii th toll of famine condition
there resulting from the war. it was
declared here today by the Rev. Wil
liam H. Hall, of the Hyria Protestant
College, who recently returned to thl
qountry from relief work in that dis
trict. Continuing Mr. Hall described the
tragic disappointment of the people
there, whose spirit were kept up for
week by the promised arrival last
Christmas time of the American re
lief ship Caesar, which would have
meant life to thousands, but which
never arrived owing to tbe refusal of
Germany and Austria-Hungary to grant
ocr saje passage to Beirut.
The Caesar, naval collier loaned
to the Red Cross by the navv deoart-
tnent, left New York months before the
entry of thia country into the war, aa
a "Christmas Ship'', for the needy in
fyria, carrying more than a quarter of
a million dollar worth of food and
clothing contributed in this country.
Vainly Pray and Walt
"Day after day the poor, atarvins
people along the eoaat and. through the
mountains looked and prayed for the
coming of the 'American ship,' " Mr.
Hall said. "The country waa can
vassed by- well organized committees,
the needy were listed, tbe work of dis
tributions waa thoroughly .prepared, of
fices were opened and men chosen to
direct the distribution. Tbe people
waited. Their hopes were raised high.
"Week followed week and month
followed month in suspense the people
daily looked out to sea for her but
the shp which meant life and hope to
tlviusauds never appeared. Hhe was
held by 'military necessity' while the
people starved.
" 'God has forgotten ua! ' was beard
again and again a hopeless and hungry
they stood faee to face with death by
starvation.
AH Hope Ended
"If the Caesar had arrived it wonld
have meant that other ships would fol
low, but her failure to come dashed
all hope for relief. Her cargo was sold
nd the funds finally found their way
to Beirut for the purchase and distribu
tion of food there, but there waa lit
tle food to be bought.
"We know for a fact that thousands
of our friends there will die this win
ter, despite the great food that eaa
be accomplished by sending fund from
America to buy what food can be ob
tained oa the ground for distribution
in an effort to save as many aa possi
ble." ,
The city of Beirut is as sorely af
flicted as the mountain districts, Mr.
Hall went ou, ami day or night one
hears the cry along the streets "I am
hungry give me bread." This is not
from beggars but from laborer and
tradesmen, people who have known ihe
comforts of life.
"In Jerusalem," he continued, "one
cannot pass along a street without be
ing beset for prayers for aid. There
are mothers with babes pulling at their
barren breasts and children whose par
ents have succumbed and left them to
face starvation alone.
People Surely Starve
"Syria mil I'ulestiue have no story
of inasHacri- or deportation, but these
district, oine prosperous and self-supporting,
arc uow caught in the world
strife, and the people are slowly but
Surely stitriiiig to death through no
fault of their own. Figures appall one
-'-competent authorities assert that not
less than I,2ihi,inhi persons are today
in dire distress in these historic. Bible
lands. ) .
"Of this number at least 75,000 are
children below the age of twelve
boys and girls and little children with
no older person to provide the food
without which they will perish, or to
soothe the lust hours when hunger will
have overcome the forces of nature and
the hour has come for them to face the
great eternal without father or mother
aear."
Locust Plague Aggravate
A plague of locusts; the denuding of
he fields of men for the armies; the
bLjsfkade of the roast; the lack of tour
ists anil the breakdown of transporta
tion are given by Mr. Hall a the rea
sons for the failure of food and pros
perity in theserlnnds "whieb boasted
they never coiilH suffer famine,',' so
rich was their productivity. But par
ticularly were conditions due to muscu
lation in food supplies by Turkish offi
cials and their friends, he paid.
"Nome men in high positions, hold
ing the food of the country ; in their
hands, have gambled with death 'and
won," Mr. Hall said. "The people
have died wliije they stored away one
knows not what fortunes in gold. '
'The Ottoman 'government, he said,
has done something in relief measures
in opening umpires for children and
distributing food, but such help lias
reached only a few thousands, while
the, work of the American Jed Cross at
Beirut was stopped by the breaking off
of diplowiitic relations between this
country urn! Turkey.
May 'Save Some
"But relief money eon vet be seut
to buy ami distribute food, ' as there
are still enough Ainerirun missionaries
remaining in the country to attend to
it," he added. "The whole people ran
not be saved but u good number tau
be, and even a remnant la worth saving.
Theirs i 4 land whim historically has
a claim upon the charity of the world,
but it chief claim now la not historical,-
It 1 hirm aa. We nr la a war to
liberate humanity. It h dn this ground
that yr app la to th "wdrld.
"Th fund collected jn this country
by the America ' CotniriitteeJ for Ar.
menian and Bytiaa Relief are being
disbursed through, then American mis
sionaries and teacher of the American
College In Beirut. ' ven though hun
dreds die for lack of food, because
money etaaot buy enough there to go
around, great good eaa be done, If
runoa are- forthcoming from this eoun
try generously , enough.
"At least one-fourth of tbe popula
tlon of the Lfbanoa Mountains has al
ready perished from hnnirer and dis
ease directly, canned thereby. Th
story which must be written when this
present winter Is over will be eren
more terrible to read, unless immedi

Tbe two -men,, were returning from
Big Bear Valley and had gone over sev
eral gradea safely, but when the

countered a heavy fog. The machine
left the road at turn, went over the
grade and turned over twice, pinning
both men underneath it.
Major Newton was not seriously hurt
and cut his way through the top of the
car. He found Boyd pinned down by
a bow of th top, but dragged him out
and Uieh- started to hunt help. A doe
tor aent Boyd to the kedlanda hospital
and his wife waa notified, but she ar
rived after he had passed away.
According to the press of Southern
California, Boyd was a gifted writer
and a persuasive speaker. He was a
newspaper correspondent in Washing
ton for years and had worked on Chi
cago, Los Angeles and Honolulu papers.
Kamaaina of Hawaii
Mr. Boyd first came to Honolulu as
secretary of the New American Bank,

ern California, and became interested
in Kepublican politics afd sat in con
ventions and Mas frequently called to
Han Francisco hcre the Kepublican
leaders met for conference.
Mr. Boyd, while in Honolulu, became
identified with politics and wrote clear
ly and understandingly about the po
litical situation here, which at that
time was complicated and many of tbe
campaigns bitter.
Maj. Hurry YV. Newton, Coast Artil
lery Corps, who was with Boyd,, was
one of the volunteer officers who accom
panied General Fu list on at the time of
the capture of Aguinaldo, tbe Filipino

and complete collapse, the northern and southern wings threatened
with annihilation and a part of the broken forces driven back upon

and General von Mackehsen are-shaking the Italian line from the
Julian Alps to the Adriatic Rome admitted the retreat of large por

ardice has been given by the Italian forces that is similar to the one
shown by the Russians when . political agitation v had shaken its
morale. The same forces that but recently were pressing victorious
ly forward are now fleeing back to Italian soil,, often in disorder,
while still others are laying down arms with little or no resistance.
Guns which Italy Secured from England only after long months kt

, DIPLOMATS SERIOUSLY. ALARMED
Reports, from Washington say that diplomatic .circles are se
riously anxious over the recent turn in the tide of battle on the Ju
lian front ;The collapse of Italy, will, they admit lay a far heavier
burden upon the other Allies: i Especially will this be so with the
United States who must be looked upon to strengthen the general
cause of the Allies all the more because of the weakness displayed by
'he Russians on the north and the Italians on the south. The task
of England, France, Belgium and the United States becomes all the
more arduous and it may be possible soon for the Germans to sue
cessfully bolster up its defense along the Western front through the
drawing of troops from the Austrian frontier to other sectors.
.Berlin claims that the Italian second and third line armies are
in retreat. .,;
i FRENCH CABINET PLANS AID
., , Alarmed at the new situation the French cabinet held a meeting
yesterday to determine how and to what extent the Allies may be
able tov cooperate on the Italian .front with a view of checking the
disaster and relieving the seriousness of the present threatening con
ditions. - i
In this country it is surmised that a reorganization, not only of
the. government of Italy but, of its army and army beads may be re
quired as a result of the menace that has come to the arms of Italy.
GAINS TURNED TO LOSSES
. i Last year the Italians took Gorizia. , They were able to co so
only after months of preparation and pot until they had secured sup
port from the Allies, especially Britain in the way of big guns and
other military equipment They reached the neighborhood of Hel
mada but did not take it - Northward they crossed the Isonzo and
took Kuk and Vrh but hot Gabrielle and Danielle until later. De
spite these attacks the main fighting until .August of this year had
been cn the CarSo and Vipacco Valley just east of Gorizia. Then
the objective was changed to the Bainzizza Plateau and the success
ful drive was launched. Now all of the gains about Gorizia have
been lost and more and the other gains, and the armies occupying
the new positions are in dire straits.
