Desperate night fighting from both the easlern and -western ends of the great battle line ' In "northern Frsnfft was reported this V morning. . . . . . . ... -..I., it was waieq iiini mo imiiuuu h.J ,!,i il.uon rf.nilltifl 111 its futile effort to pierce the line of the allied armies fcetween Koye and Lasslgny.

In articles published today the Paris newspapers warn the people that the buttle of the Alsne will not end the war, even if the allies win. Germans Report Progress. By United Prest. Berlin, Oct. R. The official bulletin Issued by the German war ofrice this morning said: "We are making constant progress rlcht and are driving wedges Into the French line. We continue on the offensive. "The Austrlans are holding a new .t.tmnr.hed line in Galicia. Prsemysl still holds out." Possible Results of Battle, t iho inot Iksoip of the Outlook, New 111 1V " York. Albert Edwards, special writer, discusses the possible results of tattle of the Alsne as follows: the First, the Germans may bo badly de feated. The allies may break through their line by a frontal atlack near nheims or may develop tieir fhinklns; campaign on the Oise quickly enough to develop and crush the German right wing. What was left of the German army would be In a very precarhms position, and probably large sections would be detached for desperate, for lorn hope rear-guard actions sacri ficed In order to gain time for the rest to escape to their own territory, That might be the end of the war, If the allies have self control enough to de niand moderate terms which Germany could accept without too great humil iation. But the defeat of her offen sive in France would by no means mean that Germany was helpless. She could on her own natural defenses or ganize a stubborn resistance, ana would undoubtedly do so rather than consent to the terms which the Lon don and Petrograd newspapers sug gest After beating against the Ger mans' hastily constructed linos along the Alsne, the French will probably have little enthusiasm for the task of- fered by the Ilhine fortresses. i" ItiiRsinns have not yet eucoun ntered a i a nrmv behind defenses. Long .before they cross the Oder they will probably be tired enough to consider more reasonable terms. , n,,t It la to the interest of Knglish business to continue the war as lomj ub possible. Compnred with the other combatants, Great ISritain is risking very few of her men, and she is at least as well able to bear the financial strain. Every day that war gives her fleet excuse to hurry the German mer chant marine is fine for her commerce and business is business. So, with even a crushing German defeat on the Alsne, there is little hope for immedi ate peace. A great section of liritish opinion will hold out even when the French and Russians' have had enough for terms which Germany could not accept. The second possibility is that the Germans will be forced to relreat from (Continued from Pane Four.) COMPANY WIPED OUT By United Press, London, Oct. 3. The official war press bureau today made public a let ter which was written by a German prisoner to his wife. The letter said In part: 'My company started Into action with 251 men, but is now reduced to eight. Not single oPticer is left alive. Some of our regiments, Includ ing the test, have been reduced to one and two uompanies." Similar other letters are said to be in the hands of the liritish. The rca- i for the Inactivity of the German center Is believed to be tne scarcity of officers.

TEN BILLS THE BAIT Ten perfectly good and new one dollar bills proved to be the bait that prompted some unknown to smash one of the plate glass windows in Hamp ton's hardware store last night. It is the third time within a few months that this store has been visited by burgs. For the purpose of advertising, Mr. Ham pi on had placed ten new one dol lar bills in his window, mixing them wilh a nile of coal. Surmounting all was a sign reading, "Coal is Money. ' Evidently the crook estimated that money is money. He left a brick and a broken window to tell the tale. The jib was quite a neat one at that. Around the edges of the jagged hole are the marks where a glass cutter had been used. One side was broken cleanly while the others were more or less splintered. The hole In the glass is about the size of an ordinary water bucket. So the cost of the operation to Mr. Hampton is $10 and one plate glass. , FIELDS TO SPEAK HERE According to announcement from state headquarters of his party, John Fields, Republican candidate for gov ernor, will spend next Monday cam paigning in Grady county, speaking at several places.

Today's showing mark ed the "beginning of the end" of the campaign to gain votes for a woman suffrage amendment to the state con stitution at the general elections in November. Heading the parade. was Joan of Arc on a white horse, immediately follow ed .by officers of the Ohio Woman Suf frage association, including many of Ohio's foremost women. Homemak- ers marched with women of the lius! ness world. College women In cap and gown walked shoulder to shoulder with "servant girls" in white aprons and caps. City women in smart tail ored gowns mingled freely with their plainer sisters from the farms and villages. One of the most prominent features of the celebration was a large, peace float at the very end of the parade Another "float, which attracted atten tion was one hearing Ohio's pioneer suffragists drawn by fifty children, all members of the junior auxiliary of the state association. At every other corner a woman stepped from the line of march to mount a stool or dry goods box to speak to the assembled crowds. The mammoth demonsl ration today was the climax of one of the most com plete and spirited campaigns-Ohio has ever seen. For weeks women from all over the country have been in Ohio giving freely their efforts to bring "votes for women" one step nearer the Atlantic seaboard. Every village and city has seen the big yel low bannered automobiles in which the workers travel from place to place arousing enthusiasm for the "cause." At suffrage headquarters in Cleve- and is a small iron pot, such as are seen in cnarge or saivauon Army workers at holiday time. Into this have cone treasures worth several hundred dollars, and others worth lit tie in money but priceless to their owners. Thev are sacrifices in the tight td gain the vote. One girl sent in her wedding ring with the comment, It is all I have." Dollar contributions have also played a large part in rais ing funds. EXPLOSION IS DEADLY By United Press. Jersey City, Oct. 3.
