attacked yesterday on a front H
seventy one and one-half mile:
between Sedan and the Moselle.
Fierce German resistance wa<
broken as the Americans ad?
vanced toward Metz, driving the
enemy back three miles at some
points and capturing important
stronghold?-:. Stenay, on the right
bank of the Meuse; Grimaucourt,
March?villc and St. Ililaire were
stormed in heavy fighting.
Gouvaud's army, on the American
left, poured across the Meuse on
a wide front between Mezieres
and ?Sedan, and pursued the foe
in his increasingly precipitate re?
peat.
The French astride the Belgian
boundary continued their rout of
the enemy. Charleville was capt?
ured. The advance ai*" some
points reached four miles,
the enemy. Everywhere P?tain's
men swept forward.
The British army is practically out
of France, advance forces pass?
ing the ?frontier, Haig announced
last night. The outskirts of the
fortress of Mons have been en?
tered by the British, who are now
almost within long distance gun
lire of Brussels.
Enormous quantities of war mate?
rials and stores, and many rail?
road trains abandoned by the
enemy in his flight, have been
captured by the Allies.
In Flanders the British pushed
forward after the receding Ger?
man line. They advanced ten
miles at the deepest point, capt?
uring the cities of Renaix and
Leuze, and approaching the rail?
road centre of Ath, on the Den
dre River. Americans, advanc?
ing with the French in this sec?
tor, crossed the Scheldt south of
Ghent.

The first i.nd Second Americen
armies in their attacks to-day, extend?
ing along the Moselle and the Meuse,
advanced on a i'ront of approximately
Ho kilometres (.seventy-one and a
half miles). French troops operating
under the American command also ad
vanccd at various points.
The captured territory includes the
German strongholds of Stenay, Gri
maueourt, cas<t of Verdun, and numer?
ous villages ur.d foi'tifted positions in
Lorraine.
Aroused by repeated German raids
and local attacks during the last few
nights west of the Moselle, the Second
American Army in the first attack it
has maw cracked down on the Ger
n'-.'.n; early this morning with artillery
preparation lasting several hours.
Advance Three Miles
Then the infantry forgod ahead, ad?
vancing at places more than three
?:iilns. Tiie Germans fought desper?
ately, using their machine guns, but
were forced to give ground almost
everywhere along the entire front.
Stenay. around which the Americans
had been held up for a week, was
'jtormed and taken in hard lighting in
,n attack from the south.
The Americans swept forward
against streams of machine gun bul?
lets and artillery tire from the hills
northeast of Stenay.
The entire district in the region of
Stenay was flooded by the Germans,
who dammed the canals and rivers.

WITH THE ALLIED FORCES |
IN' BELGIUM. Nov. 9 (By
The Associated Pr?s.).?There are ?
many indications that the Ger?
mans do not intend to make a pro?
tracted stand this side of Brussels
and Charleroi.
??runners, clinging to the hills overlook- :
ing the river, kept flares burning all
during Saturday nii;ht, preventing the ''
Americans from crossing. Through- i
out the night the American artillery j
boomed along the entire front as a sig- !
nal to the American infantrymen that;
the war was still on, despite rumors of j
peace.
In the drive east of the Meuse, which
resulted in the capture of Stenay, the ]
Americans extended their lines north- !
east of Mouzay, reaching the Bois du j
Chesnois. The Germans defended/every 1
foot of the ground over which the ad- !
varice was made. All the objectives !
were reached during the day's lighting, j
and wherever the enemy attempted to :
make a stand he waa beaten back.
Before the war Stenay was a town j
of about 4,000 inhabitants. It is be-1
iieved that many hundreds of these !
people remain there. Becau.se of this j
belief the American artillery did not ?
iire upon the town.

Before Final Hour
WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IN
FRANCE, Nov. 10 (By The Associated!
Press).?The French General Gouraud j
made his official entry into Sedan at 4
o'clock this afternoon.
At this hour it appears that it will
be a close race between the final cross- j
ing of the Belgian frontier all along'
the line and final action on the armis- '?
tico proposals.
Disorder is beginning to show in the |
ranks of the retreating German army.
French troops, with their cavalry in the :
lead, are pressing the enemy closely
all along the line.
The booty increases in importance as
the pursuit goes on. Several railroad
trains, batteries of artillery intact, im
mense munition dumps and stores and i
wagon trains fell into the hands of the !
Allied troops yesterday und to-day, to- j

ship Is Finally Out of
Conflict
? LONDON, Nov. 8.-The former Ger
? man cruiser Goeben, which since it
i joined the Turkish naval forces has
| been known as the Sultan Yawu_ Selim,
? is now in Turkish control and will be
: immediately interned, according to ad
\ vices received by the Central News.
The Goeben was a unit of the former
j German Mediterranean fleet. In Au
! gust, 1914, it made a successful dash
j for Turkish waters from the Adriatic,
; but had a difficult passage, being dis-'
j covered by the British fleet. The vea
' ?sel escaped and soon after was bought
from Germany by Turkey. When Tur
, key entered the war the vessel was
' manned by Germans and fought duiing
the Dardanelles siege and later in the
Black Sea. She was badly damaged by
I a mine in the Dardanelles, but was
later repaired.
The Goeben is a cruiser of the
; Moltko type und displaces 22,625 tons.

New York Guardsmen Helped
To Smash Hindenburg Line
Troops of Twenty-seventh Division Praised by Australian
Officer?Major General O'Ryan and Major Kincaid
Display Extraordinary Coolness Under Fire
The 27th Division, composed of the |
former New York National Guard, |
lighting with Australians, broke the
Hindenburg line in Northern France
early in September, earning the praise
of the Australian commander, accord?
ing* to a letter sent from France Oc?
tober '1 and published in the current
issue of "The Army and Navy Jour?
nal."
"Major General John F. O'Ryan," the
letter reads, "commanding the 27th Di?
vision, is one of the coolest men under
intense fire of all kinds you could ever
imagine. When a German shell struck
the ground within ten feet of him re?
cently and killed four dispatch riders
and wounded Major King, the genera!
calmly lit another cigarette and never
budged. Ile has proved a most level?
headed and efficient commander.
"Major James L. Kincaid, former
judge advocate of the division staff,
who was glad to be reduced to major
in order to remain on the battle line to
light the Hun, has certainly delivered
the goods. He volunteered to take a
battalion of the 106th Infantry over the
top and was one of the few officers to
come out of the battle unharmed. The
major has made a great reputation.
"With the Fourth British Army we
pushed through the formidable Hin
denburg line, which the Germans im?
agined could not be broken. Well, \\{i
helped break it, all right, and how
well wo accomplished our part is showr
in an official letter of praise to Gen
O'Ryan from Lieutenant-Colonel H
Murray, commanding the Fourth Aus
tra?ian Machine Gun Battalion. This
letter also explains some of the feat?
ure? of the battle not generally known
in ?the States, and which will prove in?
teresting.
"The following is the letter from the
Australian officer commanding the
Twenty-seventh Division:
"'France, Sept. ?10, 1918.
" 'To the Commanding General
Twenty-3even'th Division: In making
a personal reconnoissancc of the battle?
field ea-:t and northeast of Duncan
Post on the morning of September 80,
it was evident from the outset the
troops of the Twenty-seventh Division
had met with very heavy opposition and
machine gun fire, which was enfilading
them. There were a very large num?
ber of dead, all of which were lying
with their faces toward the front, ob?
viously being killed as they were ad?
vancing.
"Not in any one case was there a man
moving backward when killed. Owing
to the nature of the country, the Ger?
mans weer able to get enfilading ma
? chine gun fire which proved very dis?
astrous. Although the Twenty-seventh
Division may not have taken their ob?
jectives in all parts, it is very evident
that by their gallant lighting on the
left flank, they enabled the Thirtieth
Division, on their right, to do what
they had set out to do. viz.: to break
the ilindenhurg line.
"'Without the gallant fighting of the
men of tho Twenty-seventh Division,
it would have been impossible for the
Thirtieth Division to advance.
"T am convinced that the officers
and men of the Twenty-seventh Divis?
ion have done all that was humanly
possible for brave men to do, and their
gallantry in this action must standout
through all time in American history.'"
Major H. ?. Emery
Arrives at Atlantic
Port From Norway
American Professor, Freed
Recently by Germans,
Returns Home
? AN ATLANTIC PORT. Nov. 10. -Pro?
fessor Henry Crosby Emery, of Yale,
who was arrested last March on the
Aland Islands by the Germans, impris?
oned in Germany and released early
last month, arrived here to-day from
Norway.
Professor Emery, who holds the rank
of Major in the United States army,
went to Russia in 1916 to mike an
economic survey of the country. He
was attached to the American Military
Mission and when the Germans made
1 their Inst drive toward Petrograd last
; February, started for Stockholm with
Mrs. Emery and several others.
They were captured while crossing
? the Aland Islands on sledges. Pro
| fe.sor Emery was arrested, but his
' wife was allowed to proceed.
Concerning conditions in Germany,
Professor Emery said:
"When I left, Berlin the German
people had made up their minds that
j they were beaten and were glad to ac
I cept the terms laid down by President
Wilson under his fourteen points. The,
abdication of the Raiser was the gossin
! of the clubs and hotels and was expect
| ed to occur any day.
? "It did not really matter much to
I the people. All they Cared for was to
! have peace."
i "Conditions were quiet In Berlin
I when I left and the people were order
i ly and calmly awaiting the setting up
; of the new democratic government.
What happens now will depend upon
| whether the BolBheviki element among
the Socialists obtains control of the
situation, but I am not in a position
to discuss the political outlook, ap the
conditions have changed so quickl.
while I have been at sea."

Military Comment
By William L. McPherson
'.Oopyrttb:. 1?1S. >'ow York Tribune lac.)
ARMISTICE or. no armistice.
Germany is out of the war.
Her people have diverted
their thoughts from the enemy who
is driving toward their frontiers.
They are no longer wrapped up in the
fate of the Hohenzollern empire?in
saving it from foreign invasion,
from dismemberment or from any
other consequences of the German
military debacle. They have turned
passionately to the more congenial
.preoccupation of revenging them?
selves on the blood-mad and plun?
der-mad rulers who led them to ruin.
All Germany is in revolution. The
Kaiser has abdicated and fled to
Holland. All the other kings, grand
dukes and reigning princes who
have fed and fattened on the Ger?
man proletariat are scurrying into
exile. A Socialist Chancellor is in?
stalled in Berlin. His government,
which is the only shadow of govern?
ment left in the country, has prom?
ised peace to the people and demo?
bilization to the army. The army
has underwritten the revolution. All
it asks now is to be allowed to re?
turn home and to become the power
behind the new r?gime?whether
that be a regime like the Russian
Duma's, like Kerensky's, or even like
L?nine and Trotzky's.
Under these conditions peace with
the Allies must be made at any
price. Germany cannot quibble
about terms. She cannot continue
her war against the Allies because
she is committed to civil war within
her own borders. Foch's armies can
now enter Germany with or without
the sanctions of an armistice signed
by the representatives of a military
order which has vanished.
To follow the movements of the
Allied trtnies now is merely to re?
cord the rapid clearing, against
nominal resistance, of territory in
France and Belgium which has suf?
fered for more than four years the
miseries of German occupation
French soil is almost completely
free. The French armies have
crossed into Belgium opposite Hir
son. From that point eastwarc
nearly to M?zi?res they are virta
ally on the boundary line.
Only two segments of P'rench ter
ritory remain unredeemed. The firsi
is the narrow twenty-mile salieni
running into Belgium, north fron
M?zi?res, following the Meuse Val
