The British and French troops advanced together on the front northeast of Ypres this morn? ing and won important successes. Haig's forces carried the southern de fences of Houtholst Forost and a series of fortified farms, in conjunction with thc French, advanced along th'; Ypres Staden railroad and stormed valuable positions southeast of Poelcapelle, be? yond their objectives. according to the ticld marshal's oflicial report. The French, in addition, made progress north of Veldeek, and established their positions in thc face of what Paris describes as "fecble" reactions by the enemy. Up to midday the British advance had reaehed a distance of a thousand yards on the eastern fringc of Hou? tholst Forest, according to dispatche* fraai British hcadquarters. Within Poelcapelle the brewery, around which stiif lighting has been going on for days, was reported to have been taken, trgether with several houses. The at? tack was launched in a dense mist, which roon clearud, however. For the lirst time in many weeks the Gormaaa were able to counter attack wlth power eBOBgb to check the British troops a.s ihey pushed forward astride thc Staden railroad. At every other point, however, they were unable to prevent the Allied advance. Haig re* port . that heavy casualties wtre in Ili.te.l on the Germans and that 200 prisoners hove thus far been captured. I he French communique state that a "eertain BUmbef" of enptives was taken, together with two field guns.

The lighting front covered a distance n*' aboat a mile and a half, the French operating on the northern end, alor.g -Oatbern border of Houtholst For? est, and the British arhancing on the southern end, from the eastern edge of ihe forest to southwest of Poelcupelie.

Widen the Breach The point of thc British wedge east of Ypres now lies on the Passchen daala Ridge. only a thousand yards from the village of that name. The re* i cent successes on the ridge narrowed the tip of the wedge to such an extent that before a further advance could be r-afely undertaken there it was neces? sary for Haig to thrust forward at local point> to the north and the r.outh, widening the breach. Operations in furtheraaea af this scheme having re sulte.l aaeeeaafally on the north, it is l.ot unlikely thc next British attack ?will be Bimed at Becelaere and Ghcluvolt, on the southern side of the WC Ige.

"It is not anticipatcd that the Allies | will go into winter quarters this year. "The full importance of the battle I in Flanders is beginning to be re ' vealcd. In order to appreciate the real ? sigaifieaace of thia cngagement aml ' the effect it has had on the morale of tha (ierman army and the German peo ? ple, we must consider briefly the Ger? man attacks in the Riga sector, includ , ing the capture of Oesel, Dago, and other raiaor islands of the Finnish Gulf. "While no attempts should be made to belittle the importance of the posi? tion. gained by the enemy, we eannot fail to record that it is apparent that. thc Germans undertook this expedition with a viow to bolstering up the morale of the country, more particularly in Older to be able to meet the impending ir.ternal difTiculties. which threaten to calmiaata Ib h roaowod Cabinet crisis it the near future."
