UNDATED WAR LEAD, (By
the Associated Press.) In the
Italian theater over a front of
nearly 40 miles from the Brents
to the middle reaches of the Piave
river, the British, French and Ital
ian armies are developing with
success an offensive against the
Austro-Hungarians and are swift
ly driving them from the moun
tain passes toward the Austrian
frontier and across the plains east
of the Piave in northern Itaiy.
. American reserves are behind the
lines prepared to aid the allies
when the opportune moment ar
rives.. On all of the other battle fronts
the allied arms continue to be served.
In Belgium there has been little fight
ing except by the artillery wings of
of the opposing armies, while 'in the
region around Valenciennes the en
gagements between the British and
Germans have savored more of out
post encounters than pitched battles.
In whatever fighting there has been,
however. Field Marshal Haig's men
have retained the upper hand and tak
en more prisoners and additional guns
and war stores.
Farther south the French are con
tinuing successfully their process of
levelling the old salient between the
territory east of St. Quentin and
RetheL Additional progress has been
made by General Debeney's troops
notwithstanding the violent resistance
of the Germans, who all along the
front are using machine guns to re
tard the advance of the Frenchmen
toward the important lines of railway
communication to the east. On some
sectors the Germans are slowly re
treating, but nowhere are the French
patrols permitting the enemy to get
out of contact without them.
Aside from artillery and machine
gun activity there has been little
fighting on that part of the front held
by the Americans from the Meuse
rive to the vicinity of Grand Pre.
The Germans have been heavily bomb
ing the American positions with shells
of all calibers, including gas projec
tiles with the Americans answering
them shot for shot. The new big guns
of the Americans are violently shell
ing German positions far behind the
lines, taking under their fire towns
of strategic importance from the
standpoint of communications and
troops formations preparing to be sent
as reinforcements to salient points of
the crumbling battle line.
Conflans, lying to the west of Metz,
and the principal junction points of
communication with the big fortress
on the Moselle and Spincourt and
Doramary-Baroncourt, also important
railroad junctions, all were under a
particularly heavy fire from the Amer
ican guns throughout Tuesday. In ad

are leanding their aid to the big guns

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 Returns
to the secretry of the senate and clerk
of the house on campaign contribu

slowly and indicate many candidates
are tailing to comply with the law re
quiring their accounts to be in the
mails not less than ten days before
the general elections. The records to
day showed about half of the sena
torial accounts and a large number of
those from candidates for the house
are missing.
Wide variations in campaign financ
ing are shown in the individual state
ments already tiled. In the southern
states, where democratic nomination
is equivalent to election, candidates
reported their principal expeditures
in the primaries and nothing spent
since in many instances.
In the northern and western states,
several candidates, including Henry
Ford, the democratic senatorial candi
date in Michigan. Truman II. Newber
ry, his republican opponent; Senator
Weeks of Massachusetts, republican,
and Senator Nelson of Minnesota, re
publican, have filed reports that they
personally have received and spent
nothing.
Many candidates for election to the

cans, report they have not spent a

PROVIDENCE, R. I.. Oct. 2S.
Secretary of the Navy Daniels, in
an address here tonight urging the
return of a democratic congress in
the elections, next Thursday, said
republican politicians in their de
sire to get control of the senate
and house, have forgotten their
duty as Americans. They have
raised false cries, he asserted, in
the hope of getting the people to
forget the one dominating issue.
Never during the prosecution of
war, said Mr. Daniels, have the peo
ple denied to their president the co
operative aid of a congress in har
mony with the policy to which the
republic is solemnly committed and
never until this year was "the peck
sniff ian cry raised by any party: "You
must elect a republican congress to
uphold the hands of a democratic
president. -
"During the months the president
and the leaders of his party have been
husy with policies to win the war."
continued the secretary, "republican
politicians and reactionary would-be
profiteers have been thinking of noth
ing but ,'capturing congress. Such
would-be profiteers have called upon
their fellow reactionaries to 'rut up
more money to carry concress this
year than we spent In 1916.' Why?
They try to confound the people by
saying they do not like the brand of
notes coming from Wilson's type
writer. No more does the kaiser or
the junkers. But Great Britain,
France. Italy and all democratic na
tions in Europe endorse them and
make them their own.
"Let the people know the secret ot
the big money the reactionists are
putting up to elect a republican con
gress. These men from plunderbund
are not thinking about patriotism but
pay-triotism. They are not thinking
about securing permanent peace, or
even about war. They are thinking
about after-the-war and they are
straining e,very nerve tq secure a
congress that will repeal or destroy
the wholesome legislation and pro
gressive steps which have marked
Wilson's administration.
"It is not the plain voter of any
party, his heart aflame with patriot
ic zeal, who has for weeks been play
ing politics with the gravest ques
tions that ever confronted mankind.
It is the republican politician, who
sometimes poses as a stateman. who
has busied himself with raising false
Issues in order to try to get control
of congress. He Is not pro-German.
He simply has forgotten his duty as
an American and dropped'down to his
lower plane as a partisian. Forget
ting the weightiest matters, he beats
the party tom-toms and. raises ancient
political catch phrases in the hope that
the people can be made to forget tie
one dominating issue.

to their knees and lead in securing
permanent peace?

VIENNA, via Basel. Switzerland.
( Oct. 29. Austria-Hungary, through
her new foreign minister. Count
Andreassy. has sent a note to Sec
retary of State Lansing requesting
the secretary's intervention with
President Wilson for an immediate
armistice on all fronts and fox the
commencement of peace negotia-
tions.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2S. In the ab
sence cf any Official announcement,
there was a somewhat widespread im
pression here tonight that Austria's
renewed appeal to President Wilson
for an armistice and peace would be
transmitted to the allied government
before Germany's request has been
placed.
In some quarters, however, there
was a disposition to 'accord different
treatment Jo, the Austrian plea be
cause of the complex problems arising
from the new conditions that appar
ently have developed there since the
president replied to Austria's original
request.
The ofifcial text of the Austrian
note was delivered to Secretary Lan
sing today by the Swedish minister
soon after the regular Tuesday meet
ing of the cabinet at which it was un
derstood the '.unofficial version -as
transmitted by The Associated Press
from Basel. Switzerland, was given
consideration. If any definite conclus
ion was reached, the fact was not re
vealed, officials stating they could
not indicate what disposition woull
be made of the note in advance 6f a
careful study of the official version.
The text received at.the Swedish le
gation was in French and it has uot
yet been translated at the sta'e de
partment. After a preliminary exami
nation it was said there that it did not
differ essentially from the unofficial
version as received from Switzerland.
No indication was given as to hen
the translation of the note would he
made puoiic
Those adhering to the opinion that
diferent treatment should be accorded,
to the Austrian request than was sin en
to the plea of the German goverrmcnt,
pointed to cable dispatches tod.iy re
porting the establishment of the In
dependent state of Hungary; or the
recognition by the state of the inde
pendence of the Czecho-Slovak and Ju-go-SIav
provinces and also of German
Austria, as suggesting the introduction
of complex factors into the problem of
settling with the dual empire. Etm
if each of the many nationalities mat
make up that empire becomes inde
pendent before peace Is arranged, it
was said they still must bear t!t-Mr
individual shares of the "-espons.fc;lt'y
for the acts committed by the em
pire. Logically each might have to
sue for a separate peace.
However, it is believed that the
