Sedan,ffamous in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870,
Jias been entered by the American first army. Today the
Americans Sentered the. section of the town on the west
mues since me onensive oegan on September, zo. ,
Meanwhile the British,. French arid American troops
elsewhere on the.front between the Scheldt arid the Meiise
are pushing the Germans from the small sections of France
they still occupy. Important gains are recorded for the
British in the north and the French n the center of the ad
vancing allied lines which moved forward six miles Wednesday.
Marshal K01.I1 has Informed Ger
many that her white Hag delegatus
who aro coming to learn tho armistice
terras shall enter tho French lines on
tho road between Chlmay, Belgium,
and Guise, France, which runs be
tween Vervins and Avesues.
On tho road tho French lines are
wjthiu ten miles of tbo Belgian fron
tier. Flold Marshal Haig rapidly Is
clearing tho Germans from that por
tlou of Franco cast and southeast of
Valenciennes. Tho allies havo pen
etrated further through tho enemy
lines defending Mons and Maubeugc
and aro outflanking tho Gorman po
sitions in Belgium where tho Gorman
commander at Ghent is evacuating
tho city. t
East and southeast of the Mormal
forest tho British also havo made
great strides toward tho Franco-Belgian
Tho French armies from north of
tho Oiso to southeast of Mczlcrcs

frontier havo virtually all been clear

Mcicres and Sedan.
In reaching tho Meiiho at Soduu,
cncrul llrshlng'ii men had' achieved
an advance ot four miles sinco late
Wednesday night. Germany's main
ilino ot communication from Mctz
westvsurd goes through Sedan and it
Is no longer of us,o to tho enemy. In
thoir rapid advanco northward to Se
dan since last Friday the Americans
havo captured 0,000 prisoners. Sedan
is soven miles from tho French fron
tier and the fall of tho town which Is
mostly at the eabt bauk of tho Mouse
would mean tho dellnito turning ot
tho MjQiiso line northward into Bel
glum and would force tho Germans
back almost to tho Ithlno if hostilities
pliould continue. East of tho Mcuse

Germany's troops wost of tho

official report that the armistice terms had been accepted.
In spite of the fact that officials did not accep't the re

The unofficial report which started celebrations had
said the armistice had been signed at 11 o'clock 'French!

ing when the navy censors received an unknown cable
