While the Me zleres-Longuyon railway is, under fire from the American long-range guns the Germans are putting up their bitterest struggle east of the Meuse. The Belleu wood positions In that region are now the keystone of th entire west front. If the Americans capture these heights they will have i clean sweep across the valley to the Mexleres-Sedan-Longuyon rail way, and the enemy will be forced to retire behind that line. Bellea Wood Held. Smashing of these heights posi tions and an advance across the val ley the comparatively short distance to Montmedy (twenty-fivH miles di rectly north of Verdun) will bs equal in Importance to the longer advance to Mezleres, (twentyTelght miles northwest of Montmedy). Belleu wood is now held by the Americans. They must still take the heights on". either side. The wood was first taken by storm, then lojt .as the result of a boche counter at tack with heavy reinforcements. The fighting swayed back, and' forth until the wood was restored. In aiddltlon to giving the Amer icans command of the valley stretch ing to' Montmedy. capture of these heights will. result In flanking the Brier Iron fields and bringing the roads from that region under oar artillery fire. Should the enemy be forced back of Montmedy and Longuyon, the en tire line to the westward (In the General Pershing's Communique. American aviators brought down three enemy planes and one observe tlon balloon In the front of the first army yesterday. General Pershing re sorts in his communique for Octo ber 28. made public by the War De partment today. Patrols of the Sev enty-eighth division have entered La belle Joyeuse, which they found un occupied, the communique adds. "Section A On the Verdun front the day was marked by heavy artlh Iery fire on both sides of the Meuse.- An enemy counter attacic against tne Bols de Belleau was repulsed. In the Woevre our detachments successfully raided the enemy's lines and captured prisoners. In spite of poor weather conditions our aviators were again active on the front of the' first army and shot down three enemy airplanes and one observation balloon. All our machines returned.

AUSTRIA IS LOST, L IN ADMIT (Continued from First Page.) many, the capitulation of Austria Hungary disposes of it," said the Tel egraph. "Even though.not entailing- immedi ate surrender, Germany renders her plight finally hopeless, was the com. ment of the Times. "It only remains for .the Austro- Hungarlan plenipotentiaries.' to show tne wnlte nag to the Italian com- mander-In-chlef." said the Post. "The German request for an armistice co incides with the Austro-Hungarlan request, both accepting President Wilson's terms." The Dally News bitterly attacked the newspapers which are demanding a continuation or the war. The Dally Express says that the capitulation of Austria-Hungary means an end of the empire. The paper added: "All the German government will now have to do In regard to an armis tice is io agree to a method for the destruction of militarism. NEXT PEACE MOVE BY JOINT COUNCIL Di- 'X Business Hours; 10 A. M. to 6 P. M.

They are the product of one of the best uniform manufacturers in America, and are equally good for field or bureau service. The policy of selling army and navy uniforms at actual cost was inaugurated by us early last summer, be cause we appreciated the fact that you were making great sacrifices and at much extra expense to win the war. We do not seek any particular credit for this policy, but we do want every man who reads this to understand that we do not make a single penny on the uniforms we sell at actual cost, and that this method is one of our ways of doing our bitj. ? F, The Avenue at Ninth The center of international develop ments -had shifted today from Wash ington to Versailles. The military authorities there, rep resenting the United States and all of the entente allies, will speak the next word. They will tell Austria how she can secure an lmmediatel peace on the basis of unconditional surrender. They will frame, for the approval or veto of the "Big Four" of the supreme council and Field Mar shal Foch, commander-in-chief of the allied armies; the guarantees - which must accompany any armistice ar ranged with Germany. The voting members of the "Big Four" are President Wilson, repre sented In person by Col. E. M. House; Premier Lloyd George, of Great Britain; Premier Clemenceau, of France, and Premier Orlando, of Italy. The vote of the President can be cast by Colonel House, but on matters of supreme Importance it is expected to be cast by cable, as the White House will be in direct communication with Paris during all of the deliberations. Kaiser's .Anies Ota. Official Washington today accepted as a fact that Austria and Turkey are out of the war. Turkey is still negotiating, but there Is a complete lack of Interest here as to what the Ottoman government may or may not do. The Turkish problem Is one which must be settfed at the peace conference which will settle for all time the Balkan question which hss kept all Europe In a turmoil for gen erations. Because of this fact there was no desire on the part of officials here to discuss Turkey In any way. The Turk undoubtedly will be driven out of Europe, his dependent nationalities formed Into nations along racial lines and Constantinople and the Dardanelles Internationalized. But that Is all In the future. And the peace conference will decide Just how It all will be done. The one thing of supreme Interest here today was what action will be taken to give Austria the peace she seeks and what guarantees must be demanded from Germany before there can be any fur. ther negotiations. While Versailles, of course, will have the say In the two problems, there was much speculation here to day on both. It was accepted that In the case or Austria tne demands would be In many respects along the lines set forth when the Bulgarian question was disposed of. Austria will have to agree, officials say, to about the following: .Terms For Austria. Immediate demobilization of her armies. Guarantees that these troops will not be used against the .Croats, the Slovenes, the Czechs, or the Bon manlans. Free use of the Austrian national railways by the entente. Occupation of all Important Aus trian fortified cities, by International troops pending' the calling of a peaco conferinre. Surrender to the aUlM forces of tho big Austrian gun and munition centers bo that the German supply of Austrian-made war supplies would be endto. Surrender to the allied Mediter ranean naval forces of the big Aus trian naval base in the (Adriatic, to be held 'until the peace council deter mines after-war naval plans. Granting of permission for the movement of allied troops, through Austria for such use, against Germany as Marshal ,s,och may desire. It la assumed here that the Ana. trlan term's.wll be, at feast along these drastic lines, -although, of courre, the military and naval' experts at Ver sailles will frame the exact language that will be used.
