Berlin, Nov. 23.?The fighting around
Loose, where the British succeeded
in capturing a part of the foremost
positions of the German lines in Sep-1
tember, is still the subject of descrip
tive reports in the press. One of the j
most animated of such descriptions is j
from the pen of Bernhard Kellerman,
"known in America as the author of
He says that after four cays of in- j
conceivably heavy artillery fire the
British began a gas attack on the
morning of September 25. Four sep- j
arate waves of gas, alternately white j
and dark gray, were blown forward!
toward the German lines; and at the |
same time the British artillery was!
hurling gas bombs upon the Germans, j
> The latter coughed and held their;
ground as long as they could, but
many fell, unable to resist the fumes.
In the midst of all this the Germans
~ ?< +V./N evnofltOf] IP
were preparing iui mc ... |
fantry attack. Finally the British appeared.
emerging suddenly as if from
nowhere, behind a cloud of gas. and
wearing masks. They came on in
thick lines and storming columns.
The first line of the attackers was
1 quickly shot down by the hail of rifle
and machine gun bullets that rained
upon them from the shattered German
trenches: the hand grenades especially
wrought terrible havoc, some
of them cutting down six or eight men.
fThe dead and wounded soon lay like
a wall before the German position. The
second and third lines of English suffered
the same fate. It was estimated
^ that the number of British killed-before
this German division alone reached
8,000 to 10.000.
The fourth line of attackers, however,
finally succeeded in overrunning
the decimated front line of Germans,
who stood by their guns to the very
last: those of them who had not fallen
made prisoners. Not on? of them
returned to tell what happened in this
terrific fighting. On the neighboring
front, too, the British succeeded in
braking the German first position:
and gained here from 500 to 2,000
yards of ground. At the second German
position where their reserves
^ we in waging, the attack was complete
checked. The fighting lost
some'hins: of its fierceness as the afternnn
waned; and September 25 end

along the front. The Germans made

conditioned as follows: The prisoner

months with three months suspended
during good behavior. The fine was

:larceny. One year on the chain gang
or in the penitentiary.
Neely Renwick, alais Xeely McCrackin,
burglary and larceny. Agreed upon
verdict of guilty with recommendation
of mercy. Five years in the penitentiary.
In the case of Will Jackson, Tom AlJave
sent back their old celebrities to
take charge of communications.
"Splendidly, with admirable courage,
the English troops came forward to
the attack. They were young, wore no
decorations; they carried out with
blind courage what their senile commanders
ordered?and this is a period '
of mortars, machine guns and the tele1
phone. Their behavior was splendid,
but all the more pitiable was the
breakdown of their attack.
"The eight-rank columns, ^ before
they had advanced ten paces, got into
our mixfd fire of rifles, machine guns
and artillery?all at the ca'll of the
telephone. Our batteries were onlv
awaiting the signal. His English excellency
was not prepared for this.
Fresh reserves were put into action,
only to be mowed ^wn by the crossfire
from our machine guns. The English
mounted artillery had a wretched
end; it not only got into the range of
our machine guns, but at the same
.time our heavy mortars (called by telephone!)
raked it so rapidly and
thoroughly that the men did not even
have time to limber their guns. The
cavalry regiments waiting in the
background for the order to attack
were greeted with some salvos of
heavy sabres from their scabbards.
That ended the battle. The attack
broke down in front of our wire entanglements.
".An enormous number of dead lay
before our trenches. The enemy's
'osses for the two days before this German
division alone amounted, at a low
estimate, to 20,000 men.'* The lesson
that Kellermann thinks should be
l;amed froai the fighting here is that
"war is not a sport in the hands of a
dozen provileged dilletantes."
len, Jay McDaniel and others, charged I
with conspiracy and privily stealing
from the person, a verdict of guilty
was reached by the jury about 8
o'clock 'Wednesday night. This trial
consumed the entire day ind commanded

WILL \OT BE REACHED AT YORK
. THIS WEEK.
Chances Are It Will be Called Second
or Third Week?Solicitor A1 E.
Hill to Assist Prosecution.
York, Xov. 23.?It is thought that
the case against Ernest fsenhower.
Jesse Morrison and Jim Rawls. to be
tried in the York county court on a
change of venue from Fairfield county.
will not be reached this week and some
of the attorneys in the case say that
there is some doubt as to whether or
not it will be taken up next week. The
chances are that the case will hardly
be called before the third week of the
present term of court. If the latter be
correct the case will not come before
the court until the week beginning December
Judge Havne F. Rice will preside
over the trial, and while it is not definitely
known just how many attorneys
will appear in the case, it is said today
that J. X. Henry, solicitor of this circuit,
has requested Governor Manning
to lend A.bert E. Hill of Sparcanburg,
solicitor of the Seventh judicial circuit
to assist in the prosecution. The governor
has agreed to do so and Mr,
Hill has agreed to assist in the case
So far as is now known these two attorneys,
with <Thomas F.. McDow of
York, will constitute counsel for the
prosecution, although it is possible
that some other local attorney will also
appear. For the defense C. L. Blea^
of Columbia will appear for Isenhower
and Arthur L. Gaston of Chester. Wilson
Hanahan of Winnsboro and John
R. Hart of the York bar will appear
for the other defendants.
lU'smuers 01 uie counsel saia ioaa\
that the trial of the cases, if all defendants
were arraigned together,
would hardly consume more than three
days or four days at the outside, but
that if a severance prevailed and the
defendants are arraigned separately
several days over a week might be
necessary to conclude all the cases.
PeoDle in Fairfield. Chester and York
counties are all interested in the case
and there seems to be a considerable
interest in other portions of the state
as well. It is predicted that there
will be more people here to witness
this trial than York has ever seen at a
session of court.
SAYS JUDGE WILSON
Another Judge Finds Flaw in Title
of Act Creating Gallon-a-JIonth
Liquor Shipment Law.
Tli a Ofof n
x kz uiaic.
Spartanburg, Nov. 23.?Judge John
S. Wilson in the court of general sessions
here yesterday held South Carolina's
gallon-a-month law unconstitutional
in its application to intrastate
shipments of liquor. The trouble is in
the title of the cat, according to the
court's ruling, and is one that legislative
amendment will cure readily.
The court held that the title of the
act does not conform to article 8. section
17, of the constitution, which provides
that any act or resolution having
the force of the law shall relate to
but one subject and that shall be expressed
in the title. The Mtle of the
gallon-a-month law states the subject
of the act to be that the regulation of
the shipment of alcoholic liquor into
1a v i ?a
ine siaie, out maites no reiereuue 10
shipments entirely within the state.
The question of the constitutionality
of the act was raised by !C. C. Wyche,
attorney for Boyce L. Turner, under
indictment for transporting 150 pints
of beer from Union into Spartanburg
county last summer. 'The court directed
a verdict of not guilty in the
case, holding the act not in accord with
the constitution of the state as it re

ADMIT VIOLATED CIGARETTE LAW
John and Leila Horn Plead Guilty to
Indictment Charging Sales to
Spartanburg, Nov. 24.?In the sessions
court today, John Horn and Leila
Horn entered pleas of guilty to an
indictment charging supplying cigarettes
and tobacco to minors. They were
sentenced to serve four months or $50
fine and three months or $25 fine, respectively.
This is probably the first
case that has been brought in this
vicinity under this statute.
It is alleged that the defendants on
October 5 sold cigarettes to three boys
