Bulgaria Surrender» Unconditionally
and Turkey Is WotSbllng—St. Quen
tin and Damaacus Captured—
Hunt Preparing To Qet
Out of Belgium.
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. North and
south of I.n Itnssee canal they were

their heels, and ns Haigs men up

foe was removing Ids heavy guns from
the Belgian roa«t and that the gov

structed the provincial governors to
»end all their archives at once to Brus

A rtnentlere» and T^»n« were a ban

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*

In Champagne there wa* no marked
change during the week, though tmtli
tlie French and tlie Americana con
tinued to move forward. 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. If they can
keep up this advance tlie Hun* In the
salient pointing towards Reims will
flue themselves in an awkward pocket
Tlie Germans in this sector were fall
ing hack to the so-called Krlemhlld
line, and captured documents showed
they Intended to try to hold that line
through tlie winter. 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

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. Tlie only dam-
age to the attacking force was the
slight Injury of u British cruiser by a
torpedo.

The Bulgarians in signing the armls
tire submitted to every demand of the
allies, which Included demobilizing
their army and surrendering Hie con
trol of all their means of transporta
tion, beside* breaking entirely with (In
other central (towers. They even said
they were willing to attack Turkey, tn
conjunction with the ailles. Their
troops at once began withdrawing from
Serbia ami all their military supplies
were turned over to the forces of tlie
entente. The Internal situation iu Bul
garia was somewhat confused, hut the j
claim» of Berlin tlint King Ferdinand
would remain faithful to tlie central
alliance seemed unfounded However
he evidently feared for his own safety,
for he was reported to have taken
refuge Iu a royal castle near Vienna
Naturally, It will be some time before
the alio-« can reap the full benefits ot
the Bulgarian surrender In the way of
cutting aero** the "corridor to Bag

they continued the task of driving the ,
Austrians and German* out of 8«-rliia

the French. Serbian*, Greek* aid Ital
