LONDON, Oct. 19 12:10 a. m.)
Major General Charles Cat
michael Monro has bet i ap
pointed to command the Darda
nelles expedition In succession to
General sir Ian Hamilton, who is
returning to England to make a
report, This announcement i
made by the war office.
LONDON, Oct, 1 (10 p. in.) The
reports that Hie allies have ocdU
pled Btrumltaa and landed at Enos,
Which was recently transferred from
Turkish to Bulgarian rulSi has caused
ii more optimistic feeling throughout
On' ulIU d ( oil nt l ies.
As in the progress of the near east
ern campaign, it is known from both
Serbian and German accounts that
Kieid Marshal von Mackensen's army
i- meeting With greater resistance than
was expected and although it is prob
able that the Serbian! eventually must
full back on stronger strategic posi
tions in the north, the fact that the
allies are bringing heavy forces
agalnsl the Bulgarians and so placing
them that the Bulgarians will be com
pelled to divide their armies, gives
hope here thai the (,eriiiaiis may DC
balked In their latest attempt to reach
the sea and bring assistance to the.
Give Strong Resistance,
All along the line the Serbians and
their Montenegrin neighbors, who also
me being attacked, are offering very
stubborn resistance tn both Austro
Germans and Bulgarians ami while
they bine given UP I number of towns
and positions they have nol yet
leached the line on which they expect
tii make their last stand.
The Bulgarians so far as can be
learned, have made progres only In
the Zlotokopaka valley m ar the River
Morava, north of the town of Vranya,
where they blew up 0 bridge. There
is no confirmation, however, of the
report thai they cut the railway in
this district, the bridge which hey de
stroyed being a smell wooden one near
the railway, The Bulgarian foico
which penetrated the valley is not a
large one.
Strategic Point.
On the other hand, it is pointed out,
the rupture of Strumltsa is .if real
strategic value as Its occupation per
mits the defense of the southern end
of the railway and compels the Bul
garians to keep a force there. Enos,
too, is of value as although not a good
lauding place, its occupation threatens

reports, will nol semi a contingent to

The point at which the Russians
will strike has not yet been disclosed.
The expectation is, however, that the
ullies have a surprise for the central
powers and that steps are being taken

assistance can reach her.
Russians n Offensive,
There has 1 n plenty of heavy
fighting on both the eastern and West-

(, ther side attempted a general of

action does not seek dissolution but
