"In Belgium, attacks by the German*
between N'ieuport and Oixmude have
been repulsed by the Relgian army,
effectually aided by the British fleet.
"Between Arras ami Rove slight,
progress had been made at several
points. Our troops have reached asi

fence.
"In the neighborhood of Snint-Mihiol
WS have (fumed some ground on the

"No news of importance hss been I
received regarding the remainder of
the front."
Ths War Office's official announce
meat thi? afternoon follows:
"In Belgium the heavy artillery of
the enemy bar cannonaded, but with-!
? ; result, the front from N'ieuport to
Vladsloo, to tue east of Dixmude.
"Th" forces of the Allies, and notably
the Belgian army, have not only re-'
pulsed further attack* on the part of
the Germans, but have advanced as far'
us Roulera.
"On OUI left wmg. between the River
end t'ne canal of La Bass?e, we

Lille. There has been very stubborn
righting on the front from La Basses
to Ablain and to St. Na'.aire. We are j

HORDE OF CONVICTS

mans Come?Refugees
Delay Returning.
[Bj COM? to The Trlbaw I
Siuis, Oct. 19. A great number of
proelamationa are posted in all part.
of Antweip, in which the fugitives are
advised to return. The number of
those who followed this call is small,
as the Belgians are afraid of heilig
compelled to work at repairing roads.
Burgomaster I'evoes was much upset
by the fate of Antwerp, ami temporar?
ily was repluced by Louis Franck, s
member of the Belgian Parliament,
who advised his countrymen not to re?
turn unconditionally, but only after he
had reached an agreement with the
German authorities at Berlin regard- i
ing the conditions on which the fugi?
tives might return. He says he will
try to make this agreement within thi ?
in at twelve days.
From some of the Dutch frontier I
towns, which still are terribly over- '
crowded, so much so that some of them
contain twice their ordinary popula?
tion, delegations have arrived in Ant?
werp to consult the German Military
Governor, but with no definite results
FO far. The number of citizens left in
Antwerp is about 15,000, the majority
of whom are old people, women and
children.
A large quantity of corn was in the
town before the arrival of the Ger- \
mans, but this was sent by way of St.
Nicholas to Ostend, and must have
been forwarded from there to Havre.
At the last moment, when the town
was on fire and the great exodus took
place, the prisons were opened, and
several thousand criminals set free, i
Merx Place alone harbored 3,000, amon?;
whom were ruffians of the worst clas*.
The Germans laid mines in the Scheldt
for three kilometres, so the river is
absolutely unnavigahle. The number
of Germans in Antwerp is about 10,
000, ail Prussians, but it is said they
? replaced by Bavarians. V..
entered the town with
men, but he and the greater part left
>oon after. Among those remaining
ont 1,000 marines. Communica?
tion between Antwerp iind Brussels :?
kept up by motor cars. Some foreign?
ers must be in Antwerp still, but they
are not allowed to leave the town.

London, Oct. 19. Berlin papers qo?

of this fresh outburst is the damage

for a few detachments working with
thi supply and horse transport trainf,
ml the Canadian* have arrived at their
four camps scattered over Salisbury
Plain. The early srrivslS. who save
completed their camp making, amused
themselves by playing baseball and
football.
Among the player? there appeared a !
surprising number of sweaters bearing
the Winged Foot, emblem of the New
York Athletic Club. One of the play
( r. said that patriotic Britons: residing
in New York had equipped and sent to :
taiiada more than two thousand re
who are now with the Canadian

A general air of cheerfulness pre?
vails among the Canadians, but some
grumbling is heard because of the iso?
lation of the camps. None of them
la within four miles even of a village
and seven miles separates the nearest
of them from any considerable town.
The prohibition rule imposed on the
Valcartier camp in Canada by Colonel
Sam Hughes, the Canadian Minister of
Defence, rule* here and Is being rigidly
enforced.
The slowness of the Caniulians in
reaching camp has caused a postpone?

troops, and it la expected that General
Alderson will take command with only
the usual ceremony.

temporary works thrown up during the
siege.
The Austriani surrounded Sarajevo
With a girdle oi forts placed on the
heights around the citj and armed
them with powerful guns. Against
these defenec? the Serbe-Montenegrins
?ere able to bring into action several
hoary Servian guns employed in the
lirai Balkan war at the siege of Adri- '
nnople, and these were reinforced
by naval gu.is from the allied fleets on ?
t?ie Adriatic coast, conveyed through ?
Montenegro into Botnia.
These heavy guns ha\e reduced the\
Au?trian forts to silence, while the I
infantry, as soon as they ha''o seen j
any point in the defences seriously j
weakened by artillery fire, have dashed
in and captured the position at the j
point of the bayonet, daunted neither

By October 14 all the forts had been

defences of Sarajevo. During the
whole of October 11 and 15 a tremen
