PRICE TWO CENTS ' "V ILiTARY POSITIO fiEIiS IS OF CRITICAL Vom the Region "West of Cambrai Southward to the St Gobain Massif the Foe Reinforced His line Preparatory to Making a Determined Stand. Mail Airplane Fell at Hicksville, L (By The Associated Press.) The critical military position of the Germans) from the region west cf Cambrai southward to the St. Go bain Massif, and around tl.is strong bastion eastward to the territory north and northeast of Snissons, continues to hold the eyes of the world. For the moment the tactical maneu vre of the belligerents in Artois and Flanders, as well as eastward o Sois sons into Champagne, Although they still are of the greatest importance, necessarily continue to take second place in interest to those sectors which are filled with momsntou possibili ties where a successful move by the allies may bring a luiek change in' the entire German battle front, or, on the contrary, a determined stand by the enemy with the Jirsn reinforce rntntg in man and :;un power he is known to have assemble,!, may re nt. t, for a time at least in a stale mate in the game which is being , piayed by the allies to crack the al ready demoralized German line. The heavy rains of the past few days haye turned lowland? through out the fighting zone into swamps, but on those sectors of . the high ground between Cambrai ' and Sois sons the storms have no: kept 'lie Pritish and French armies from mov ing forward. Nor have they served to lessen the strengtii of the enemy's resistance. Near Gouzeaucourt and Havrlncourt the British have pressed on a little further toward Cmibrai, in the -former region af r i.'.-in nut down at tacks by the Germans who endeavor ed to reclaim th' L;h eround won by the British in !i.h(:iv'3 fighting. To the south the French from the dis trict west of St Quentin southward to the western side of the St. Go . bain forest have pushed eastward to vard the Oise river, with their flanks now resting , dangerously near both Ft. Quentin and I-a Kere. St. Quen tin now stands only a little more than three miles awav. while La Fere is so closely encroached upon from the west and outflanked from the north that seemingly it soon must fall. The French and Americans who are fighting shoulder to shoulder north east of Soissons continue to carry out successfully .a co-related movement having the conquest of the St. Go bain forest in view and also the out flanking of the German positions to the east. In their latest endeavors the Franco-American forces have made some slight progress in the lace of extremely stubborn resistance. Likewise in the sector east of Sois sons the French and Americans have gained additional jyound between the Vesle and Aisne rivers. Far to the north the British now are so nearly upon Armentieres that a few more strides forward seemingly will place them in a position to make the one time cotton spinning center theirs for the asking. La Basse alSS is being 'brought nearer in this gen eral movement which apparently has t as its ultimate objective the recap ture of Lille, and possibly, the even tual falling baclopof the German line northward in Belgium. British air forces continue serious ly to harass the Germans in the coast al regions of Belgium, having again intensively bombed enemy military and submarine bases at Bruges, Os tend and Blankenberge. Field Marshal Haig is highly op timistic of ultimate victory for the entente. In an order of the day he declares that the dark days have passed, never to return again. He says that in four weeks the British troops have made 75,000 Germans prisoner and taken 750 of their guns. Meantime peace feelers again have been sent broadcast by officials and men prominent in the hnrh politi'al' councils of the Central Powers. The essenco of their speeches show pes simism as to the Teutonic allies being able to gain a military victory. Aviator Edward Gardner anjl His Mechanician Were In juredTaken to Hospital New York, Sept. 10. Edward Gard ner and his mechanician, carrying mail by airplane from Chicago to Bel mont Park, fell with their machine at Hicksville, L. I at 11 o'clock tonight. IBoth men were injured and taken to a hospital at Mineola. The engine of the airplane carrying Gardner and Edward Raddle, the me chanician, "went dead" when they were at a herht of 7,000 feet, but the pilot did not lose control of the mi dline and volplaned most of the dis tance to the ground. Both men were suffering from exhaustion when taken to the hospital but their injur ies are not considered dangerous. They said they lost their waywhile flying over Long Island and alii mj see the flares which were kept burn ing on the landing field as beacons for them. Gardner left Chicago in a rainstorm at 6.25 o'clock this morning. Their first stop was at Bryan, Ohio, at S.52. They left there at 926, arriving at Cleveland at 11.40. Resuming the 'light at 2 JO p. 'm., they arrived at Lockhaven, Pa., at 4.47 and started for BelmoBt Park at 5.51.

Mr. Gompers in a statement made today prior to attending a reception at the American Luncheon club, reiter ated the determination of American labor not to. necede from the attitude jt had taken ot refusing to meet the labor representatives of enemy coun tries until the war had been won. "Uur first business." said Mr. Gom pers, "is to win the war and then ne frotiate. But imperialism and autocra cy must be crushed for all time. No sacrifice is too great to achieve that end.'" MURDERER BELIEVED ARREST . WAS FOR DRUNKENNESS Bridgeport, Conn., Sept. 10 Public officials, led by Mayor Wilson and Su perintendent of Police John H. Red gate attended the funeral of Daniel E. Walker, former alderman, which was held from St. Peter's Catholic church this morning. While the services were in progress, Louis Bonjon, the slayer, was under cross examination in police headqunr ters. and learned for the first time the deed which he bad committed. Cap tain Edward Cronan asked the prisoner why he had killed Walker, to which Bonjon replied that they were joking him. that he was arrested for drunk enness and wouM foon be released. When shown the 'newspaper accounts of the murder Bonjon fell to the floor, erring-: "He was my best friend" Bonjon was tifien to the county Jail this noon to await trial. AMERICAN STEAMER DORA SUNK 400 MILES OFF FRANCE London. ' Sept. 10 The American steamship Dora," formerly under the Austrian flag, was torpedoed and sunk cn September 4, approximately 400 miles off France as the result of an attack on a cargo convoy. The crew was s.-ned. The steamship was struck at 6.20 e'clock in the morning. A calm sea enabled all the crew of 85 to escape. They were picked up by destroyers. The submarine daringly took up a position about 1T0 yards from the starboard side of the cotrvcy column and about an equal distance from the nearest destroyer and fired at the Dora, which was heading a column of three ' vessels. , . The" .lookout reported seeing a per iscope just sifter the wake of the tor pedo wa discovered, but nothing more was seen of the submarine. The torpedo struck aft. throwin tie car go of army supplies as nigh as the mast tops, but only one member of the crew wm hurt. The escorting ships immediately dropped numerous depth charges where it was believed the torpedo chme from. Owing to the speed with which the warships acted and the cipse proximity of the U-boat, it is considered possible that the subma rine was either destroyed or badly damaged. This attack is 'somewhat different fro mthe recent methods of Urboats in firing on lone vessels and giving no attention to protected convoys, and it shows more reckless daring in an effort to sink convoyed boats than has been usual during the past few months.

Destruction of an enemy submarine Sept. 3 off the Atlantic coast by gunfire from the American steamer Frank H. Buck was reported to the navy department to day by the master of the steamer. He said that two shots were observed to hit the submersible, which sank "after a terrific explosion." The submarine, the captain said. opened fire on the steamer at a range of 14,000 yards, but when it found after an interchange of three score shots that it was outranged by the American vessel's guns, it tried to draw off. It was then that the ship put in the two shots which the captain believes de stroyed the enemy. The captain's narrative, as sum marized in the report to the depart ment, follows: "On Sept. 3, at 8.25 a. m.. an enemy submarine was sighted on the star board beam at 14.000 yard, the sub marine opened fire with two six-inch guns. We answered fire with forward guns. We saw the shot fall about 400 yards short and immediately swuns stern forward to submarine, using af ter guns. Our shots were very close to the submarine, and the submarine shrapnel were bursting very near to us. some of the pieces falling upon our de;-k amidships. We changed the course- frequently, which seemed to upset the submarine's aim and .range. As soon as the submarine saw our range was equal to hers, she hauled away from us. Up to that time she had been closing in on us. "Before the submarine could get out of range our 2Sth shot from the after gun apparently hit her stern. The 29th shot hit hsr just forward of the con ning tower, near and under the water line. The bow immediately shot up into the air very suddenly, then set tled and went down out of sight, the FLAGS TO FLY AND BANES TO PLAY ON .REGISTRATION DAY GOOD RESPONSE TO CALL FOR PLATINUM Washington, Sept. 10.

I am positive that we de stroyed her, as she sank almost im mediately after the shot struck her, "The engagement lasted 29 minutes, Some of, the fragments of the sub marine fell on our decks and , were picked up by the quartermaster arid chief gunner's mate. "The submarine was about 300 feet long, of the early type of German submarines, with high bow, and had two six-inch guns close to the con ning toner, fore and aft. She fired in-salvos, using about 60 shots alto gether. She was camouflaged and flew no flags." .
