LONDON, Oct. 1'.'. 1h.:,o a. in. From the point of iev of the allied armies so far as could be learned troin despatches reaching London today the situation in West Flanders and in France ;is tar south as Lille seemed en this, the 77th day of the war, per haps more hopeful than at any time since the German's advance on Paris was checked. Though the news reach ing England i meagre and to an ex teat delayed as always, all tidings seem to indicate that the (iernian ad vance from Ostend on the French coast towns has been blocked tenipo i a l ily at least, while farther south in a region that was a week ago the ex treme tieriuan right the invaders have been compelled again to give ground before the allies' force, which lias been concent I at i ug in Lille. Several reports stated that the Germans have withdrawn from this town, but this is not continued nor is the report that they h;ic evacuated ('ouitrai. nearly "' miles northwest. It seems plain, however, that the menace here grew marked and that the Herman army op erating along the const of Flanders found itself in peril of being cut olf from the main body. What opposition the,- met along the sea is only guess work for it ha never been disclosed in Germany what forces the allies ha. i' or at what point, they touch the io;ist. SERVIANS AGAIN DEFEAT AUSTRIANS I'oliee were calle arrests were made. 1 1 out and twenty I'reciintioiis have icen taken to prevent finther rioting. Great excitement prevailed throughout Sunday in Deptfiird and neighboring boroughs. Crowds thronged the streets and refused to move at tlie o:ders of the police and soldiers. In all it was found that 2d bakeries, bulcle. l shops and saloons were completely wrecked. The rioters threatened to attack (ier nian daces in Bromley and other bor oughs if the authorities pcrmtued tliem to open. The rioting was led by Idd dock lab orers, who had been turned out of a lodging house to make room for Bel gian refugees. The men gathered in a (ierman saloon and smashed the win dows and the bar. The dockers charg ed the owner of the saloon with having started a report that two British bat tleships had been destroyed. The shop of a German butcher, in the window of which a picture of Emperor William . t IT displayed, was wrecked.

The French war oflice gave out an oflicial statement this afternoon as follows: lit Belgium the heavy artillery of the enemy has cannonaded but without results the front from Nienpoit to Vladttoo to the east of Dixmule. The forces of the allies and notably the Belgian army have not cnly repulsed further attacks on the part ot the (.ier mans but have advanced as far as Roulers. On our left winy; between the river Lys and the canal of LaBassee we have advanced in the direction of Lille. There has been very stubborn lighting on the front.

Grew Out of Coller Fatality Jury Ses sion of County Coflrt Likely to Be Finished This Week. It is expected that the jury session of the Windham county court now in progress at X'ewfar.e will be ended this week a there are not mote than three more jury canes to be heard. The court term also will be short. It was announced upon the resumption of the court session this morning that the suit of Daniel M. Brosnahan of Brattleboro against .lolm Wiley of South Londonderry, to recover damages for the sale of a horse, has been settled by agreement. This suit was the outgrowth of the suit brought against Mr. Brosnahan by the es tate of William ('oiler, who died as the result of a runaway accident in which the team of Mr. Bro.-mihau figured. The trial resulted in a final verdict for the defend ant and Mr. Brosnahan sued Mr. Wiley, from whom he bought the horse, in an effort to recover from him the cost of the Coller suit. He alleged that the team was not as represented ny -vir. vv ney ai the time of the purchase. Court began this afternoon to hear evi dence in the suit of A. and B. Howtou of Halifax agaitist the S trout Farm agency. The plaintiffs allege that the property they bought in Halifax through the de fendant agency was not as represented in that there was less acreage, less tipple trees' and less lumber and timber on the place than was represented to them by the agents. This case will be a short one.

Doting the prolonged battle both sides have been threatening to execute the wounded, it was learned yesterday on absolute authority, but so far no wounded have been shot after being captured. he negro troopers of the !th and ldfh I'tiited States cavalrv assisted in bringing the wounded to the American side.

A more chaotic- condition of the town repi cseutativ e situation lias not existed in I'tattloboro in many year than exists1 to day, the very day of the caucuses. No body know or has much ot an idea as to who will be nominated at any of three political caucuses to be held at S o'clock tonight. The Democrats will meet in lied Men's hall, the Progressives in Festival hall and the Uepublicans in the Aimory. Some of the Progressive held a meeting this forenoon in K. YV. Oihsou's olKce and talked over several possible plans, but without deciding upon anything. K. '. Crosby. Dr. Thomas Kiee and II. ". (Jib son are the Progressives most prominently suggested. Mr. Crosby, who is the nomi nee for lieutenant 'governor, would not state, when asked by The Reformer this aftei noon, whether he would accept a nomination and withdraw Iroin the state ticket. Dr. llice al-o did not care to com mit himself. .ludge (Jibson said he was not looking tor the iiouiin.it ion, but that if a situation developed which seemed to make it his dutv to accent a nomination le would not "duck." Member of the paity are talking over the situation this tttei noon. I he K.epiublicans likew ise have no party candidate, although numerous well-known citizens are being talked of. The most in teresting piwisibility is that they will nomi nate Martin Austin, manager of the Car penter organ business. Mr. Austin is a Democrat, but he is a substantial and ag- res.-'ive business man. and inasmuch as nothing is likely to come up in the legis- ature to demand partv action the Jiepub- icaiis are talking some of nominating him mi a citizens' ticket. That would not be done unless lie signitied a willingness to u-cept. and of course it may not be done iiivway.

STILL ALIVE IN QUICKSAND Maurice Allen Is Buried 25 Feet Below Surface Near His Home in Ware FIFTY VOLUNTEERS TO SAVE HIM struck Ycggmen Drilled Two Safes and Se cured $603 in Springfield. SPRINGFIELD. Mass.. Oct. lib- One of the most darit g and sensation al burglaries atteinpttu in this city in years was successfully carried out be tween and'-t o clock vesterdav morn ing when veggnien broke into the dry goods store of Dickiesoti & Co. and the Morse .v llaynes shoe store, near the corner of Yernuu -iiid Main streets, and got away with mere than :M;oii in cash. The burglars not onlv drilled the safes in the two stores, but thev succeeded in doing it without discov crv. 1 hev were prolialdv scared awav bv the officer on th" beat whose at tention was attracted to the Morse &. Havues store bv the peculiar noise made by the heavy blows of the slcdgr while an attempt was being made to open one of the safes in the store. The officer, not willing to risk an investi gation alone, summoned assistance, an it was probably during the short space of time that elapsed while lie went to get aid that the men succeeded in es caping from the buildings. Fortunately they were detected before they could open the safe, which at the time held $l()dd. They evidentlv made a quick get-away, for they left a large kit of tools in their wake. The burglars succeeded in opening two safes in the Diskieson store and one in the Morse & llaynes store. In the Dickiesoti store they succeeded in getting about .siimi, vhiie in the Mors & llaynes store they succeeded iu get ting only :. the contents of the cash drawer. In the opinion flf the police, the men were professional burglars with extensive experience. lbth jobs were neatly done, the men ridding all three safes of their spindles without doing much damage to the rest of the ironwork. The police are convinced tint the men who did. the job were the same who succeeded in making several successful breaks iu New Ha ven.. Conn.. Friday night. The Nw Haven jobs were done in a similar manner, the men evidently making it their business to go after money rath er than other valuables.

Republican rally in St. .lohtisbury a few years ago and made t hi.s statement : "The 1 leniocra --, would saddle and bridle the jack-ass of De mocracy, and like the howling devils they are, ride him through the very Haines of hell, if tluy could land him in Ihe green pas tures beside the still waters of federal patronage."' It is this same animal Mr. Prontv is trying to 1 ide. Mr. Prouty has sought and received the Progressive nomination tor senator. On April L'Oth. 11'J, at a sugar party given by the Vermont Society at Wash ington, Mr. Prouty said in ids speech: "When you find a man that had rather shoot a rhinocerous than give a hungry man a din ner, you will find a man 'who wants a third term for the presi dency." Is a man so unstable in his jtolitical beliefs and so uncertain in his political affiliations to be trusted with the I'nit ed States senatorship from Vermont? Would you not rather elect a senator who is reliable.' 1 Political Advertisement.
