ciated Press) While tne French and
Serbs are wresting the strongest posi
tions from the Bulgars attempting to
hold their lines against the strongest
offensive ret launched in Macedonia,
Foch has fallen back upon his nibbling
tactics along the western front, his
forces eating steadily forward at many
points,
It Is significant that the news of the
most successful and the most preten
tious drive by the Allies in Macedonia
comes at the same time as the news
of the appearance of Bulgarian divis
ions along the western front, and it is
taken for granted by the military
critics that Marshal Foch has waited
until the Bulbar linen have been weak

Franco-Serbs Continue
There are no indications in the news
from the Macedonian front that the
French and Herb advance has stopped,
and it is regarded as probable that
the Bulgar troops dctailx-d from their
main army will now hae to be hurried
bnck to the Near Fast to check the
new danger.
Tho presence of the Bulgars on
west was reported yesterday by
Kcho Beige, which states that an

have reached Muuberge to be brigaded
with the (ierinans.
The Herbo French advance in Mace

The ofliciitl British reports announce
gains in the neighborhood of lloluon,
northwest of St. lucntin, in which sec
tion during the past twentv four hours
th British have taken thirteen hull

ing strongly on tins front and there is
evidence thnt the enemy is bracing him
self here ami elsewhere in anticipation
of further British drives.
In Flanders the British gains have
been along the Ypres canal, their ad
vance bringing them within striking

Stealthy French Advauce
In the Gobain forest, a natural cita

four years ami within which they have
been perfecting their defenses since the
first buttle of the Marne, the French
ure creeping steadily forward. The
(ierinans have been ordered to hold this
forest at all cost and are within it in
strength, while the ravines and bluffs
of the heavily wooded region ure thick
with hidden machine gun nests. Against
these the poilus are attacking, creeping
to within grenade throwing distance
under cover of the thicket and clearing
one defense after another.
During the past few days the French
have gained a thousand yards alonvr a

WASHINGTON, September H The

divin ons along the rest of the western
front, according to statements made to
the British by prisoners taken ypster
day by Oenernl Haig's men near Ht.
(juentin. It seems that the victory was
of so overwhelming a nature that the
(lermand command dares not face the
fact ami dares not permit the troops
to know how completely the Ameri

Yesterday along the American front
was the quietest day since the launch
ing of the St. Mihiel attack.
Germans Reforming
Reports from the headquarters of the
Americans in Lorraine state that the
Germans are reforming their shattered
battalions. Prisoners report thnt this
work is going on throughout the en
tire German army ami thnt eight hun
dred battalions have been broken up
and disbanded to fill the gaps in other
bnttlnions caused by the year's fight

service from all over Germany, their
daces in the auxiliary service being
sken by the women and boys.
Hun sNests Bombed
The Oermun air activities along the
Amerieanl.orraine front have lessened
very perceptibly during the past
twenty four hours, due very largely to
the persistency with which the Ameri
can airmen have been raiding and
bombing the German airdomcs.
There are indications that the Ger
mans along the Lorraine line are pre
paring to fall back at least as fnr as
the Hindenhurg line. Towns along the
Moselle which would fall into Ameri

while fires have been started by the
Germans at Dommartin le-Chauasee,

FAMOUS JAPANES
E
CASE IS DECIDED
Nipponese Born In California May
Hold Real Estate Is
Ruling of Court
HIVF.RSIDK, California, September
IS (Associated Tress ) The superior
court here, in deciding what is known
as the " Harada case," !:ejd that Jap
anese born in California may hold real
estate. Ihis decision is regarded as one
of prime importance, as, to an extent
it sets at rest, unless overruled by a
higher court, question that have arisen
or may arise under the California anti
alien land laws.
The case formally known as The
People of the State of California vs.
Jukichi Harada, Mine Harada, Humi
Harada and Yoshi.o Harada, was the
first arising from an alleged violation
of the California alien hind law.
This law prohibits persons not eligi
ble to citizenship from acquiring real
estate in California, except to the ex
tent and tor the purposes prescribed
by treaty and with a further exception
in favor of leases for agricultural pur
poses not exceeding three years.
After the enactment of the law .In
Uiihi Harada, a Japanese, brought a
lot in a residential neighborhood in
Kiveisiile anil had the deed issued to
Mine, Sumj and Yoshizo Harada, his
three minor children. They were born
in the I'riited States and were there
fore citizens and entitled to hold real
estate
People living in the neighborhood ob
jected to the Japanese occupying the
propel 1 v and a committee waited upon
Harada with an offer to buy the lot
from him at a price above that which
he had paid. He declined to sell, ex
plaining it was the kind of a neighbor
hood in whoh he wished to bring up
his children.
The stall', later, through the attorney
general's office, brought suit to have
the propertv declared escheated to the
state. It was t tncontent ion of Joseph
I.. I .cw insulin, depot v nttoincy general,
who represented the state in the lili
gation, that Harada had the deed is
sued to Ins children icrely as a sub
terfuuc to evade the law. Harada in
sisted that in having the deed issued
to his children he made them air out
right and unconditional gift of the
propertv. This was the issue involved
in the decision handed down today.
The question of the coiisi t ut ional ity
of the law was raised in a preliminary
hearing and the court held it was con
st it ut ional.
Tim superior jourt in Cjtliiomia is
the court of first instance, there be
iiiL' two higher courts in the stnte.
Parisian press runs like this: "An
American sergvaut commanding a tank
captured a battery of seventeen heavy

with scventv five piisoncrq When the

He succeeded in getting a fair edn
