Mayor and Chief of Police Surrender the City When the Defenders Are Forced to Flee Northward. People in Famished Condition. London, Deo. 17.—In «attacks preced ing the surrender of Jerusalem the Turks employed storming troops In successive assaults on Nebi Semul, northwest of the Holy City, then held by London troops, according to a Reu ter dispatch from British headquarters in Palestine. The dispatch gives de tails of the capture and the entry into Jerusalem. The final Turkish attack was pre eded by such a heavy shelling that it appeared the enemy was confident the British would he blown off the sum mit, but all their attacks were repulsed sanguinarily. The Turks had a strong line west, south and northeast of Jerusalem. They were well provided machine guns ami their artillery dominated the crests over which the British should have to advance. Some Turkish guns were placed just outside the city walls, making it impossible to reply to the fire without endangering the town. Difficulty of Transport. A torrential rain made the roads impassable," the correspondent con tinues, "while a chilly east wind pierced the sodden soldiers to the bone. The problems of supply and transport almost drove us to despair. The camels were unable to keep a foothold on tho slippery paths. Nevertheless, the food and ammunition supply was main lined fully. "Dec. 7, when our attack began, the aen moved up under cover of dark ness, tho attack pivoting on Nebi Sernul, from which the Londoners ad vanced eastward toward Jerusalem, while other troops ascended the Hebron road, threatening the town from the south. Charging the Turk Line. "The Londoners had a hard task on the steep slopes of the Judean hills, where it was impossible to bring field guns to their support, but some moun tain batteries and howitzers rendered gnificent service and by 7 o'clock in morning of the 8th the Londoners had stormed and captured all the lemy works west of tho town. The Turks still held the last line on tho ridge overlooking Jerusalem. The po sition was charged in the afternoon of the 8th. Tho magnificent feat was crowned with complete success and the Turks were driven out at tho point of the bayonet. Their losses enormous. The Surrender. During tho night tho Turks drew to tho north and east end of the city, and at 8 o'clock on the morning of the 9th the mayor and chief of po lice came out with a flag of truce and surrendered the town. 'Acceptance of the surrender was made formally at noon without actually entering the city, only pickets being poste d to pr event surprise. Meantime ; FOOD OFFICIALS WIT H THE W PS They Get a Taste of the Hard ship U. S. Soldiers Undergo. With the American Army in Fi Sunday, Dec. 16.—(By the associated press.)—Representatives of the Unit States food administration now km just how the American soldiers France live. Last night the party of six split up and joined different units. Several units were on practice marches and the visitors had the ex perience of standing in the rain at the mess line and eating from the tins without shelter. They were billeted for the night with soldiers who were sleeping in lofts and in rooms of farm houses. This morning one of the visitors wanted to wash and as the sergeants had been instructed to show them no favors he was directed to the nearest muddy stream, where hardy artillery men were standing in inud and ice, busy with soap, brushes and frigid water. Tt appeared to be too much for one member of thfc party, so the cap tain allowed him to share his billet, which had a stove. All the members of the party agreed that even under the most trying cir cumstances, and sometimes without a single apparent comfort except pos sibly a cigarette, the morale and de meanor of the soldiers were the finest possible. Today the visitors spent part of the time with former national guardsmen from their respective home states. HUGE TRADE SHIP PLANT COMPLETED IN 76 DAYS Washington. D.

The ridge of Mount Scopus, north of the city, was stormed with the bayonet and the Turks were cleared from the Mount of Olives. Demonstration for Conquerors "Big demonstrations of joy broke out when the general advanced to take the surrender of the city. Flowers were showered on the troops and the popu lace clapped their hands to testify to the joy of deliverance from the hands of the oppressors. "Further north the Turks were estab lished in a long series of trenches around tho village of Beiteikes. These trenches were carried with a rush and the British line advanced beyond the village. Welsh troops advancing from the south pushed across the road east of Jerusalem leading to Jericho and thrust back Turkish reinforcements advancing along this road to succor Jerusalem. In the course of all these operations they captured nearly 1,000 prisoners, in addition to 700 woundÄI Turks in hospitals in Jerusalem. Inhabitants Without Food. "The wonderful co-ordination of all our movements in itself speaks praise for the admirable staff work. Of « ditions in Jerusalem I learned that in the early days of the war and the abortive Turkish attacks against the Suez canal the Turkish losses in pack animals exceeded 45,000 dead from ; neglect, lack of fodder and overwork. The people were so famished from hunger that they used to fight for the bodies of the animals that died in and about the town. Then there was piclon and persecution. Many Were Executed. Everybody suspected of sympathiz ing with the allies was imprisoned killed. Many persons were executed. Among these was the Mufti of Gaza belonging to a distinguished Arab fam ily, who after an attempt to escape wa captured and hanged with his son out side tho Jaffa gate. All aged subjects were sent away, but the Ameri colony of about 300 was not molested, It did noble work in relieving distre aided by funds from America. "When the United States broke off relations with Turkey those funds w discontinued. Nevertheless the me hers of the colony persisted in the good work to the best of their ability, and between January and March of this year they assisted more than 350,000 persons. They also took charge hospitals and have done splendid se ice. Recently the Germans attempted to obtain the exile of all America from Jerusalem. The Turks opposed the proposal, but a number of younger males were sent to Damascus, ft also intended to deport the remainder, but the British arrival defeated the tention."
