I'aris, Nov. 14. A day of unsuccess ful German attacks nt dlfTcrent parts of tho line, with considerable progress by the Allies In the vicinity of Hlx schoote and minor progress between La Ilassoe Canal and Arras Is Indicated by the ofllclal news given out this after noon and to-night. Not since the taking of Dlxmude have the Hermans been able to mako any progress toward their goal of the French ports on tho Channel. Tho German efforts to break through tho Allies' lino centred at sevcrnl differ ent points, notably tho bridge head at Nleuport, the region to the east and southeast of Yprcut, the district about Iasslgny and tho line of the Alwne as far as llerry-au-IIao, to the northeast of Zonncbeke, nnd between I-a Itaasco Canal and Arras. At no point, according to tho ofllclal report, dtd these efforts meet with suc cess. Tho Allies pushed their lino five eighths of a mllo further east In the out skirts of Hlxschoote. Further east tho Germans operating In tho Argonno attacked Le Four dp larls and St. Hubert and were driven back. They began several movement! In the vicinity of Verdun, but boforo these movements were well under way they had been made futile by tho French artillery. Ofllclal reports say that the vlolonce of the German attacks on the lino de fending the French coast nan decreased nnd nn optimistic tone Is taken by the observers of tho Allies, who say that not only Is tho Allies' line still unbroken but that In the desperate assaults which won Dlxmude for tho Germans and In tho still more desperate attacks all along hlch followed, culminating on tho Allies did not oven fall there Is very Indlcnlon that tho town soon will be reoccupled by the allied lorots.

Her mglnis, with a hors-prnver of 31, 000, gave her a speed of 22,4 knots. She was put hi oommRtlon two yeais " ago and ranked with the AJ.tx. Centu rion and King George V.

The mines had been planted by the Germans oft Tory Island. The great transatlantic liner was pica Ing her way slowly through the sea after this warning when those of her passen gers who were on deck saw the flash of a huge explosion where the Audacious was located. Then tha great war vessl began to sittle and the Olympic steamed to her aid. When sho was close enough small boats were put off and In a high ea the rescues were effected. Knough volunteers from the Olympic's crew to man double th: boats at hand responded to the eal'. The Olympic reached the Audacious shortly after 0 o'clock and the whole crew hsd been transshipped by noon. Tho 'shell of tho dreadnought had been shattered near the stern, Just below the water line, and tho great ship was being filled by thousands of gallons of water each minute. Of her three engines the one located near the stern was wrecked by the ex plosion, and some of her boilers had ex ploded. After the ertw had been saved It was thought possible to tow the war ship twenty-.tive milts to the Irish coast, and n cable wus stretched to her. The first strong tug on this snnpped It.
