Allies Gain On Three Fronts
UEW YORK, September 25 (Awociated Pre) In Macedonia, Palestine and France the Allies
1 " are giving the armies of the Central Power noreit and each succeeding twenty-four hour this
week presents a blacker and blacker outlook for the Kaiser and his allies.
In France the net is drawing tighter and tighter around St. Quetin, the central buttress of the Hin
denburg line and, despite the frantic resistance of the Germans, with each hour the British and French
draw closer to positions the loss of which mean a collapse of the present German defenses in the Laon
salient.
The Macedonian situation becomes daily more critical for the main Bulgarian army and the Teu
ton forces stiffening it. The blows being rained against the Centralers along this entire front have
staggered them back and thrown them into such confusion that at no point along the entire front are
they able to concentrate a sufficient number to enable them to face about and make a stand.
Yesterday French cavalry entered Prilep and made certain of the occupancy of this most import
ant point,, the control of which gives the Allies a hold upon many of the main roads west of the Var
dar Valley and tends to prevent the Centralers from bringing their armies together. It also prepares
the way for the rolling up of the Bulgar and Teuton lines and the scattering or capture of the greater
part of the forces which have been for so many months on Grecian soil.
The reports of the Palestine operations seemingly forecast the annihilation of the entire Turkish
forces in Palestine, on both sides of the Jordan.
SMASH DIRECTLY
AGAINST LINES OF
ST. QUENTIN WINS
Franco-Itritish Drive Caves In the
Outlying Defenses and City
Should Fall Todav
LONDON, September 25 ( AssneintciJ
Press)- The last of the outlying de
fenses of St. (jticntin are falling in
furious fighting, official reports from
flint front yesterday afternoon stating
that tin- assault heinx made upon the
line before the city wan heinjr carried
through with "groat success. "
This new attack in being made along
n four mile front against St. (jueutin
itself and for the time being the drives
to the north ami south of the city
hnve lieen suspended, pending the out
come of the direct assault. The com
plete success which has attended the
npoiations and which have brought the
Franco British lines well into the de
fense system anil within two miles of
the city itself leads to the hope that
the fighting front will be within the
city suburbs by tonight and that the
German retreat, expected during the
past week, will be on in full effoct
within twenty four hours.
Along Tour Mils Front
The new smash is along a front from
the Omignon river smith against posi
tions in the Hindnnhurg line made as
stronfj as weeks of preparation could
accomplish. Despite the best efforts
of .the defenders of the position, how
ever, the Franco British assaulters are
boring through ami by noon yesterday
had taken the outlying villages of Fran
cilly, Selencv, le Pcne and Dedalloa,
with heavv Herman casualties and eight
hundred German prisoners.
From these villages the Tommies and
poilus continued to fight their way
east towards the outskirts of St. Qnen
tin. the advance being slow but steady
and accompanied bv furious fighting,
much of it hand to hand. The German
line is shattering and the fate of St.
Gnentin appears sealed.
Eljewhere On West Front
Further north, at points west of Cam
brai. th.' British made progress yes
terda to the east and north of Moeuv
res and improved their positions.
On the Arras I. ens sector the Ger
mans Inum-hcl no offensive, endeavor
ing to drive the British bark from their
new positions southwest of Gsvrello,
on the Arms Douni road. The British
completely repulsed this attack and re
tained their now line intact.
South of St. (Juentin and nlong the
new hue betneen the Ailotte nn.l the
Aisne the French positions were heav
ilv bombarded bv the Germans, but no
infimt'v aetions were fought.
Berlin Reports Success

I.ONpON, September '.(Associat

Acre, the landing point of the Crusad
ers in their campaign tc redeem Jeru
salem from the infidels, was occupied
yesterday by the British without a bat

fenses evacuating their forts on the
approach of the British cavalry, while
British naval units steamed in. The

north of Nnr.areth along the coast. To
the south o.' Acre, on the Bay of Acre,
the port of Haifa, the Mediterranean
terminus of the Damascus Maita rail
road, was ulso seized.
The seizure of this latter port furn
ishes General Allenby with a new sup
ply base, where British ships may (lis
charge and where the new front may
be quickly reached by railroad.
To the east of Jerusalem the Turks
in the valley of the Jordan east of the
river are withdrawing towards Amman,
on the Hedjhs railroad, with Austra
lian, New Zealand, Jewish and other
troops in pursuit. The main body of
the Turks have reached Ks Salt, fifteen
miles northwest of Amman, their re
treat being towards the southeast, with
their escape towards Damascus cut off
and their escape south by the railroad
also barred by the Arabs, who have
cut the line east of the Dead Sea.
The number of Turks now in the
hands of the F.ntente forces as prison
era is well over twenty five thousand,
while the capture of very many more
appears certain unless they dare the
desert and flee still further east after

MANY BULGARS
LEFT IN STRAITS
MOST DESPERATE
Franco Serbs Control Many
Passes and Are Reaching
Others To Cut Knemv Off
LONDON, September 25 ( Associat
ed Press) French cnvnlry, operating
with the Herbs on the new Serbian
front, yesterday entered Prilep and
occupied the city, while the Serbs have
swarmed eastward and are spreading
north and south in the Vardnr valley,
where they now control the main rail
ftmd between I'skup and Snlonica for
some distance.
On Monday, says an official report,
the Serbs threw a portion of their
force across the Vardar river and fell
upon the Hulgarians there, these Bulgar
detachments being a portion of the
army fleeing north before the advance
of the British and Greeks on the Dor
ian line. The advent of the Serbs upon
their flank added to their disorder and
ninny prisoners are falling into the
hands of King Peter's men, who are
also taking huge quantities of sup
plies. The Bulgarians, as they fall
back, are destroying the Greek and
Serbian villages and making every ef
foit ia destroy their stores, efforts
which the rapid movements of the Kn
tente armies are defeating in part.
The Serbs have pushed along the
Prilcy Gradsko highway, which they
hold at various points east of Prilep,
while to the northwest of that city
they have reached to within a mile
southeast of the steep massif of the
Drcnxka Kauge.
Control the Passes
The occupation of Prilep in force
leaves the Bulgnrs to the west in a
precaiious situation. Through Prilep
runs all the main highways connecting
the country north of the (Vrna "River
with the Vardar Valley, while it com
mands the various passes through the
i mtains between the Vardar and the
Tieska. With Prilep held by the French
it is impossible for the Teutons to join
their forces until a great part of them
have made the difficult march far to
the westward and through the high
passes lending north to I'skup, the
march which practically destroyed the
old Serbian army.
Anglo Greeks on Move
The Anglo Greek forces operating
along a line east from Lake Dorian
have now ndvan 1 well to the north
west of the lake towards the Bulgar
ian border and have effected a junction
with the Anglo Greek divisions which
had been holding the line west of
D'iriiin. Tin combined forces are now
sweeping north along the line of the
Vardar and have reached smnkvitra,
ten miles from the Bulgar border. The
Seibs are operating across the Vardar
vallev twenty miles still further north
and a large part of thn Bulgurs are
now fighting between the two forces
and are faced with annihilation. This
new Anglo (ireek line runs through Ba
zarlt, three miles north of Lake Dor
ian Here the line is within sovon
mib's of the Bulgarian boundary.
German Leadership Falls
A Havns despatch states that many
Bulgarians are deserting along the en
tire Macedonian front. One regiment,
coin miivuded by Os'nnans, Ipraeticitlly
mutinied and on orders of their offi
cers many were executed, the number'
shot 'awn being five hundred and sixty.
The French press is emphasizing the
fact that the debacle in Macedonia,
as well as that in Palestine, marks an
other defeat for, the German general !
staff. The Turks in Palestine were un- I
der the command of Field Marshal von
Sanders. In Macedonia, otie front was,
under the direct command of Genera!
Srhiill, while another of the defeated
Bulgarian armies was commanded by
(ieneial von Steiben.

Archbishop Ireland
Passes Away
After Brief Illness
Noted Catholic Prelate Was Ard
ent American and Took Strong
Stand Against Germany When
America Entered War
HT. PAUL, September 25 (Associat
ed Press) 'Archbishop Ireland died
here early this morning, at the age of
eighty years, after a brief illness. His
desth had been anticipated for the
past three days.
John Ireland, Archbishop of St. Paul,
was one of the most distinguished of
the Roman Catholif churchmen of
America. There were few fields of in
tellectual, political or spiritual en
deavor ip which he failed to take a
positive stand, making himself at times
the center of a controversy.
Born iu 1838 in Ireland, a carpenter's
son. he was carried with his 'parents
in the tide vt Irish immigration to
America "while he was M child. Altar
service at Burlington, Vermont, and
a jolting trip west on a prairie schooner
were among his boyhood memories,
bringing him finally to St. Paul, Min
nesota, in lS.r2, when Indians in goy
blankets stalked tho streets of that
frontier town.
Served In Olrtl War
After being ordaiued at Ht. Paul,
he eagerly accepted an appointment aa
chaplain in the Fifth Regiment of the
Miniirjota Volunteers.
He was ardent for the I'nionist cause
and shared every hardship of the sol
diers' life in their terrible winter raids.
At luqa he gave yeoman help by rush
ing ammunition to the front when it
was sorely needed. He was stricken
with fever after less than a year's
service and returned to a St. Paul
pastoral.'. He soon attracted national
attention through his work for temper
ance. He became Hisiafrp in 1875 and
Archbishop in lN8(i. He received sup
port from many of his admirers for ap
pointment as the fourUi American Car
dinal. Celebrating his golden jubilee
a few years ago, the priests of his dio
cose I'lesented him with a purse of
10(1,11(1(1.
Took Stand Against Huns
Archbishop Ireland's strong Amer
icanism, lirst put to the tost when the
civil war began was manifested afresh
when the I'nited States entered the
world conflict. No sooner had con
gress formally declared war on Ger
many, than the Archbishop called upon
people of his faith to remember that
they were Americans above all other
ties and declared it their duty to help
in every way. Later when occasion de
manded, he advocated purchases of Lib
erty bonds and contributions to the
Kod Croaa and to various relief funds.
In this course he followed consist
ently a part he took in a famous con
troversy which antedated his "Fari
bault plan." It resulted from a peti
tion made to Koine to create in the
I'uited States German parishes with
parochial schools with orders that the
German language be taught in these in
stitutions. Its sponsors sought to con
ceal the purpose of the plan by pro
posing also that it be followed by other
nationalities, but the Archbishop saw
i ne in lacy or the utea anil hastened
to Home, where ho successfully corn
batted it.
As a monument to Archbishop Ire
land stands the beautiful cathedral of
St. Paul on the brow of St. Anthony
hill. It overlooks the vallev of the
Mississippi and the thriving city whose
growth from a rough pioneer trading
post synehronined with the attainment
of fame by its founder.

Six Billion 'Minimum Is
Amount Required To Lick
Kaiser Announces M'Adoo
SAN FRANCISCO. September 25 (Associated Press)
Six billion dollars is the minimum desired by the government
from the patriotic investors of the Nation in the Fourth Liberty
Loan.
This was officially announced in New York last night in a
statement by Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo, who calls upon
all those who are back of the government to come forward to the
extent of their ability to help finance the war and subscribe for
bonds of the fourth war issue.
"Without this vast sum we cannot lick the Kaiser. ' says
Secretary McAdoo, in announcing the minimum of the loan.
Following the announcement of the total for the Fourth Lib
erty Loan, thtj officials of the Twelfth Federal Reserve District
received official notification that the district's quota has been
set at $402,000,000.
Hawaii's Quota
The Twelfth Federal Reserve District includes Hawaii and
the local Liberty Loan Committee, of which L. Tenney Peck is
chairman, has been awaiting word of the exact amount of the
loan and the quota for the district to announce the exact quota
for the Territory.
Based on information giving the quota of Hawaii in relation
to the quota for the district, Mr. Peck has figured out that Ha
waii's share of the entire loan would be .0011275 percent.
On a six billion dollar minimum, the minimum for the Islands
will thus be $6,765,000.
