By EDWARD W. PICKARD The kaiser put his back to a wall in tlie vain effort to check tlie allies on tlie western front, and 'he wall collapsed. Bulgaria surrendered, prac tically unconditionally; Turkey at once put out ja-ace feelers; Austria Hungary cried for cessation of tlje war, and the Ukrainians rose In re voit against the Huns. Meanwhile the allies kept up their ceaseless hammering at the kaiser's front wall—tlie Hlndenburg line—and by smashing through It at many points proved it vins not the Impreg nable system of defense that the Ger mans ha^ supposed it to he. Frolti the sea to Verdun the battle .blazed day and night, and the official reports showed an almost unbroken series of victories for the allies. The Belgian army, assisted by British troops and. unexpectedly, by a French army, jumped into tlie fray at the beginning of ilie week, and, taking Dixmtnie and tin» important Wytseliaete ridge, ad va ncqd swiftly as far us Rouler». Thereupon the Huns begun making preparations that indicated complete withdrawal from Belgium.

A rtnentlere» and T^»n« were a ban lotied by the Huns Tuesday night. In the attack on Cambrai the Brit uh. with whom an American contin gent was fighting, met with desperate resistance and here and there suffer ed a local reverse, hut they could not be long checked and pushed ahead with dogged determination until ttn»y had the city at their mercy. The Huns burned vast quantities of stores Iu their preparations for withdrawal. Next to the south come* the St. tjm-ntln sector, and there tlie French under General DeN-ney won a great victory, capturing tlie city after tre mendous fighting Which was fiercest In and about the St Quentin canal. This place was one of the keystone* of the Hlndenburg line and its capture a* sured tlie retirement of the Germans ou a wide front. Immediately north of St. Quentin ti"» British were engaged by enemy reserve» of st-iruiinp troops j h,«, fighting was furious.

The Yankees were up agHlrist a hard proposition in the forest of Argonue, win re the dense woods were full of machine gun nests and the fighting wan almost like a but tle in the dark. This style of warfare, however, seemed to suit the Americans and in broken groupa they battled their way onward, imsaing beyond Cierges and always keeping in contact with the recreating enemy. For miles they were hampered by the scarcity of roads, the mud and the liiiiimienihle and bravely defended fortified shell craters. They captured during the week great numbers of guns and quantities of material, Including three big oh servHtlon balloons. On the left flunk of the Americans Gouraud's French men fought their way northward with the greatest iatrepedlty and cut off tlie Germans opposing them from coin inunlcatton with their comrades In the Argon ne forest region.

Tlie fact Is they have no organized line of defense be tween it and the French border. The Americans In (Tmtiquigne as well a* those in tlie St. (Juentln sector dis played gallantry and du*h that have not been surpassed. In tt The most spectacular exploit of the week wus the raid on the Austrian naval base nt Durn/zo American, British and Italian warships made' their way through the mine fields and completely destroyed tlie has«» and all the Austrian ve*»ela in the harbor ex cept a hospital ship.
