Reprisals In Kind Are To Be Ex

Terrible Sights That Citizens Are
; Compelled To Witness After
Every Raid Have Effect of
Changing 'Adverse Sentiment
LONDON, October 23 (As
sociated Press) It is the
intention of Great Britain. to ex
act reprisals from German cities
. and towns for the Hun rightful
ness '. which through night air
raids has been killing and maim
ing the women and children of
various English cities and most
especially London. Already . two
cities have been selected as ob
jects of attack. ' ; .,'.!"..'
Sir George Care, speaking in
the house of commons yesterday,
. : laid especial emphasis on his as-
sertion that U is the intention of
tne British, government to exact
v reprisalj"lfor ,ifiin. air attacks bv

Repeated flights o mangled,
bleeding, torn Httle r bodies has
notj served to accustom the Bri
tish, public to them. They have
not .become calloused to the sight
of a dead mother with a wailing
babt at her breast or of the weep
ing mothers mourning over the
corpses of their children, slaugh
tered as victims "of German kul;!
tur. I Instead, indignation has
growb and has fruited into de
mands so numerously and loudly
voiced that the government can
' no Ipjiger ignore them. Even the
, king has said that he wished
' those who have been opposing re-
prisall in kind could look upon
1 such Rights as he had seen.
Earlier air raids first brought
the demand that the British
.slioud reply to Germany in kind.
!but tjlie sentiment was then
jstroifAthat Great Britain could
rot afford to submit to being
bran.de 1 by future generations as
guilty pf barbarism like that of
the Tei tons. That sentiment has
re ma ned until now Mrong
. enouthl to holJ Great Britain
backfriim raids upon towns and
pointi Where only non-combat
ants (vould. be the, victims' or the
been te;
en down
but such sentiment has
dily weakened, and brok
by the sight's that have
grown sp common; Each night
raid, has been . followed by true
stories o( the terrible results that
have fallen upon the innocent.
Coverr.ment officials who visited
the scenes of such outrages have
left than sickened by what they
have witnessed. The result has
been the determination announc
ed by Sy George Cave.,
The decision has been reached
only after Germany has repeated
ly continued its outrages in the
face of the demands of humanity
'hat they should cease.

Huns on this front. . ' "
, ' : The infantry. attack was made along a front from PaaschendaelW
to the edge of d'lIouthuUt forest, a distance of between four and
five miles. Following an intense bombardment of the German posi
tions, which swept the prepared lines in a hurricane of shells,1 wip .
ing out numerous defenses and driving everything left alive into '
the depths of the eoncrete dugouts and shelters; the British and .
French went over the top at daybreak, ploughing steadily forward
across the marshy ground, into which the soldiers sank at every step.

:The French met greater resistance, their front being along the '
Ilout'.ulst forest, heavily fortified. From the positions . near the
outer edges of the woods the French guns pounded the defenders
and the pottos "have, secured numerous 'vantage points from which ;
to carry on their further attacks through this woodland, much of v.
which is tow and flooded. The most signal victories of the French
yesterday were airing th line of the LangemarckrStaden railroad,
which skirts the southeast edge of the forest. Nearly a mile of this
mad was added to the section previously taken over and the-French
advance posts are within east shelling distance of SUden. ' .
Yesterday's drive tightens the grip the Allies are securing on
Roulers, the key to a wide portion of Flanders, and makes more,
certain the early putting of the Roulers-Ostend railroad, upon which
,he C.ermans rely for the supplying of their North Sea submarine ;
bases. Another two days'. work such as yesterday and the Germans '
will be shaken loose of almost a third of the Belgian territory they
have occupied for three years. v
Ostend as a submarine base has been rendered almost unten
able by the recent bombardments from the air and the sea.,; Sun- '
day's naval bombardment Inflicted great damage,-as photographs
taken yesterday from observation airplanes demonstrate.
There were violent artillery duels throughout all of yesterday
on many sections '"of the Aisne front and before Verdun, with the
French fire smothering the German reply and clearing the way for
an apparent French offensive. There were no infantry actions on .
t lie southern French front. , -,
Petrograd reports the safe withdrawal of the Russian fleet from .
Wormso Sound to the mouth of the Gulf of -Finland,' to protect
wliich is the main purpose of the Slav warships, according to the
orders of the Russian minister of marine, which ordered the, with- '
drawal of the fleet from the Gulf of Riga waters and the adjoining
straits. ,"','.''.'' , : ; -
Russian submarines have been active in covering the withdrawal
of the fleet and have sunk a German transport and damaged at least
one of the enemy's dreadnoughts. The Russian underwater fighter
have been attacking' bravely. -' ' 'V 7. :'' :.) '.
The German fleet, after bombarding the northern entrance of .
the port on Wormso Island, covered the landing of German troop
from transports on the Esthonian mainland. These troops were
taken ashore on the Verder peninsula, opposite Oesel Island, and
have occupied the western portion of that peninsula without opposi
ton. ' ,' ,'
Yesterday the Germans once more brought their Zeppelins into
play on the west front, and a series of raids was made on towns along
the battlefront in France and Belgium, ;(No, details, of damage or
loss of life are given in Sir Douglas Uaig'a despatches. , '
That Germany suffered heavily in the naval engagements off
he (iulf of Riga and Dago and Moon Islands last week is asserted
in the official report which was issued by the marine department
of the Russian government at 1'etrograd late last night.'
Two German dreadnoughts, one cruiser, twelve 'torpedo boats
and one transport were put out of action by the Russians but thei!
ultimate fate is unknown. 1
The Russian marine department's statement further says that
it has been established that at least six torpedo' boats were sunk.
Russian losses consisted of the complete destruction of the anti
quated battleship Slava and one large torpedo boat which was beach- '
ed in a sinking condition. . : ' ' ;.
