ROME, Oct. 19. Italian shock troops north cf Lake Idro, on
the northern Italian front yesterday attacked the Austro-Hungarian
advanced posts and indicted heavy losses on the enemy, the Ital
ian war office announced today.
LONDON, Oct. 19. The British and American forces in the
region of La Cateau have successfully continued their advance, says
Field Marshal Hairj in his communication tonight. Southeast of La
Cateau they have penetrated to the high ground west cf Catillone
and also have reached the west bank of &e Sambre and Obe canal.
British are advancing rapidly astride the Lille-Tournai railway.
There is no contact with the main enemy forces south of this line.
AH the bridges over the Marcq, south of Chereng, are intact, the
Germans having fled so fast they did not have time to destroy
South of Douai the British have reached the outskirts of Auber
chiccurt and are east of Ecallion and east of Pecauencourt.
Oct. l( Thj enemy augmented his already strenuous resistance
against the American "advance by heavy artillery action today. This

the district had already completed

Illinois went over the top during

Whole Line North of Oise Is In
Fluid State, With Enemy
Still Making Rapid
Associated Tress Service:
WASHINGTON. Oct. 19. The
German retreat from Belgium con
tinued today at a rate that indi
cated early arrival of the allied
foree-s before the first of tho enemy's
series of defense lines. Reports from
the front were of a scattering char
acter, however, and furnished of
ficers here with little basis for gau
iiiK the immediate strategic situa
tion. One unotlicial report placed the
Anglo-American advance patrols in
the western edtre of the forest of
Mormal, between Valenciennes and
Avesnes. If this is correct the first
subsidiary line of the enemy has al
ready been broken.
Gen. March referred to this situa
tion today in his weekly conference,
"From Le Cateau northward the
Itritish have reached but have not
vit attempted to cross the German
defense line which there follows the
east bank of the .elle up to the .en
see marshes."
ltsiti"ns Chauvins: Kapldly.
The situation alon the front was
in such a state of flux, shifting every
hour with the German withdrawal
gaining in speed, that Gen. March
made no effort to outline the strate
gic possibility. He did, however, call
attention to the fact that the with
drawal had expanded to cover prac
tically the whole "50 mile front
from the coast to the Meuse, where
Gen. Pershing's, forces are carry
ing forward the allied right wing.
If the German commanders are
; successful in bringing their great
retreat to a halt on the expected
defensive line, officers here believe
that the enemy cannot long remain
in that position. The Anglo-American
thrust already appears to have
fractured the keystone of the Ghent
Tour nai-Valenciennes- Avesnes arch
at Morpal forest.
Ilncmy I-iiit Dcmoraliol.
There u much speculation here,
however, as to whether the enemy
will be able to stop the tide of re
treat he has started, now that it is
in full swing. The whole enemy line
from the oise north is in a fluid
state, observers believe it will b a
dillicult matter to solidify it again
if allied pressure can keep pace with
the retreat.
The very depth of the enemy
withdrawal, it is possible, may serv?
to give him time for this readjust
ment. The communication lints of
the French, I'.ritih and elt,dan
armies are rolling out behind them
in ever extending avenues back of
their bases. The armies cannot out
run those arteries and it takes time
to repair and build railways to
handle the vast supplies that mut
so forward every hour.
Iaw Kxjxx'tcd Soon.
To some officers, therefore, it
seems likely that a pause will soon
occur in F.elgium tind on the north
ern half of the great battle front.
They are watching intently, how
ever, for a new thrust by the Amor-
i lean and Franco-American force
I east and west of the Meuse who
perhaps are holding the key to the
whole enemy front, whatever plans
for gradual withdrawal to the Ger
man frontier have been made.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 19. The im
portant rart played ,y American
troops in the victories on the west
ern .front was emphasized by war
department ofhcials today in the
we e iv lv conference with members of
the senate military committee. The
work of American aviators was es
pecially pruied. The news that the
Germans had evacuated the entire

FRANCE. Oct. 1?. The iirst French
army under Gen. Dcbeney, after
months of severe campaigning, is
furnishing one of the best examples
of the endurance of the heroic
French troops in the righting on the
Oise. Continuing 'their pressure on
the German lines during the nipht.
Gen. Pebeny's troops completed the
conquest of the territory west of
the canal from Hannappes to Noy

ditlicult ground.
The Germans. disputing every
inch of the ground in this region in
order to protect the retreat of their
armies pressed by the British, are
favored by nature. The around is
well adapted to the artificial Hood?

ambushes that are encountered all
along the front.
Wherever the enemy retires here
he is forced l ack against his wall of
defense, these positions being es

troops and material further north.

the three' v eeks campaign closed.
While ollieiol reports were Licking,
it appeared that again the Ameri
can people have given to their gov
ernment not only what was asked
but more than was asked in order
that the wt r aainst Germany and
her allies may be carried to a suc
cessful conclusion.
How far the total will run above
the six billion dollar goal, uthcials
would not Jttempt to estimate to
night. It all Jepends, they said, on
whether big financial interests at the
last moment lile the big lump sum
subscription; expected of them and
whether the number of smaller sub
scriptions by individuals is found to
meet expectations.
Xew subscriptions entered during
the last day. and those made effec
tive by payment of the 10 percent
instnllment probably will amount to
a billion and a half dollars for the
entire nation, it was said. Before
business opened this morning $4.-

federal rw-erve banks.
Iivo Pays for Final Report.
For the next fivev days banks in
every city and town in the United
-'t;tes will be busy adding up sub
scriptions. Reports and payments
then must be made to federal re
serve banks, which are expected to
take at least live days more to re
port to the treasury.
Indications are that the number
of individual subscribers will far ex
ceed J 0,00000 and break all rec
ords for distribution of war bonds
for either this nation or any other.

A large part of the six billion dol

by individuals. The individual sub
scribers then will take ten months:
in which to repay the banks on the
installment plan for the bond loans.
Eonds will be delivered when the
last payment has been made. The
transaction represents the most fx
tensive scheme of popular lending
and borrowing through banks that
the country has ever seen.
According to orhcial figures avail
able tonight at the treasury only the
St. Louis ai.d Minneapolis districts
had exceeded their juotas, Minne

official reports crodited several other
districts with having passed the lui)

been delayed, owing to a difference of opinion which occurred -t
the eleventh hour, according to a dispatch received here from
Berlin. It is said that Germany will make a very conciliatory oiTvi"
regarding the suspension of submarine warfare and will prob
ably recall conditionally all submarines.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 19.- On the eve apparently cf the com
ing of another peace note from Germany, Pres't Wilsen rejected
the plea of Austria-Hungary for an armistice and peace negotia
tions, and in doing so has made clearer the conditions which the
central powerr must meet to end the wir.
In a note rritten yesterday and made public soon after it was
well on the way to Vienna today, the president, in effect, rays
there can be no talk of peace with the Austro-Hungarian govern
ment except upon the basis of complete liberty for Ciecho-Slovaks
and ctner subject nationalities as free memberof the family of
nations. He refuses to entertain the Austro-Hungc'rian suggestion
for this reason without discus in g the military questions dealt w?L'i
in the reply to Germany.
The Vienna government asks for negotiations on the basis cf
the president's announced program of peace, mentioning the
speech of January 8 last in which the president said the peoples
cf Austria-Hungary should be accorded the freest opportunity for
autonomous development. The reply says this is impossible; tint
