All the Summary or War News of Yesterday From Belgium to the Wsgcs moun tains, the bl.f guns of both subs are hurling hbells at opposing positions and in addition there has been con siderable grenade fighting and sapping operations. The British urtillery has shelled German trenche between the Homme and Ancre livers, and Brit ish suppers have countermined and destroyed by an explosion a mine cra ter held by the Germans north of Huilueh. The Germans have bombarded Bilt ish trenches around Livordingho, to the northwest of Yprcs, and near Loos and Nciivllle have been engaged with the entente allies in lively hand gre nade fighting. The French are in creasing their urtillery lire at various points, especially in the forces of tho Argonne. i Kxcept for an air raid by the A us trlans at Shunisk in Volhynlu, where numerous buildings were set afire, nothing new hai come through con cerning the situation on the Itiisslan and oust Giilician fronts. Artillery duels still predominate along lli Austro-Ilallun line. The Austrlans are continuing their advunce into Albania, with Dura , their immediate ' objective, and have captured the town of Kurya, accord ing to the Austripn oflicial communi cation. It is probable that tho town Krola, some twenty miles northeast of Durazzo, is l lie place taken, us availa ble maps show no "Kurya." The Vi enna report says also that the Aus trian vunguards lisve reached the Ishnl river, which flows to the south of Kroia. In West Afrlc the British report the capture of additional German forces by the French and declare that Urong French columns are moving toward the Spanlijh New Guiana fron tier, to which country the Germans cov-'recently were reported to be in re treat. The German government reports that Zeppelin I-1 !, which had been on a reoonnoitering expedition, has not returned to Its base, tuns confirming (he report of the loss of the airship in the North sea.
