KING VICTOR EMMANUEL tt " m King Victor Emmanuel of Italy, it is believed, would like to help the allies A against Germany, and especially F against Austria, and the popular de- d mand for the adoption of such a course , has been insistent in Itlay. b ft the command of the sea on the Bel- It gian littoral. ti Should the German navy undertake L this venture, it would be confronted d with much the same proposition as b has met the British fleet since the commencement of the war, and it would assume the same risks of col- F liding with mines heretofore faced by the British alone, because the Brit ish mine field stretches along the British coast from Ostend southward. f If, as the allies claim, their left can- b not now be turned, the only alterna- e tive left the Germans is to hack away C t through the trio of armies confronting f - them. Climax Appears to Be Near. Observers here think that this cli- it max cannot be far off, and the Lon- t Ion papers are quoting Emperor Wil- e liam, who, in addressing his troops p a somewhere in France on October 3, is Ii reported to have said: t "Before the leaves fall from the t trees here we shall all be back in the dear Fatherland." t The probability that the emperor I never expressed this opinion does not detract from its value in the British f construction. "Lille has been evacuated by the Germans a third time," says a corre spondent in northern France. "This t evacuation was made necessary by the r' allies' capture of Laventle and Estal res, which forced the Germans to has t tily leave the plain between Haze Sbrouck and Lille. e "Everywhere along our left flank 1- the Germans are falling back under e pressure they cannot resist. It is not r. even certain they will hold Ostend. rr Refugees tell me there were no Ger- I mans in Ostend Friday. - "The German army has not been 1 s defeated In the Western theater of 1 b. action, but its position is perilous. The 4 Sa'lies took BaUleul, 17 miles from 4 Lille, Thursday." Advance Halted for a Moment. The advance of the German force te threatening the northern French sea- 1 coast has been halted for a moment. says the correspondent of the Chron it ide in northern France. "The Ger t mans have suffered heavily in the re re cent fighting, and are short of mani re tions and stores. However, they are r5 preuparing to strike a hcavy blow. It h- is probable that they will attempt to ,f penetrate the defenses of DIknkir h- with the object of overrunning thh French coast uas far as Calais and Bou r- logne. "The heavy siege gmuns from Ant werp are being removed toward the Spresent German line, while large bod les of German troops are being push 4 ed forward A lage force of Germans is centered at Thourout, 12 miles ,e southwest of Bruges, Belgium. •d "Dunkirk is calm, although the city m realizes that it is menaced. Along the n. front of both armies the duty in the v, trenches is made more unpleasant by of the heavy rains and around between at the armies in many places is a bog. The weather is turning colder, and the mists and fog make the low coun 1. try most unhealthy." i-s Says Italy Is aht Off. ad London.-The Stockholm correspon he dent of the Daily Telegraph has sent ers an Austrian report saying Austria Hungary and Italy are on the eve of p- concluding an agreement under the ne terms of which, in exchange for main of tenance of Italian neutrality in the rs war, Austria-Hungary will cede to It th- aly the Trentino. a district in the be Trent. and permit a permanent Italian -- occupation of Avlona, the Adriatic sea Ite i port.

London.-Thle imporprant SuCePrss in the battle for Dunkirk and Calais. .- thle possession of which t!:e I(r t.:at.s are striving. :ue credited to the allies ir the official communication; issued in Paris. The French are i-id to have rosc rupied Armentieres. an important rail \way junction on the Belgian frontier nn thwest of Lil!P. and they have re pulsed an attempt 3f the (;e-mans to cross the River Yzer. which f0,,-s through that little corner of West Flanders whih is all of Beleiumn that remains in Belgian hands. This would mean a check to th- German attempt to reach Dunkirk by the coast route The French also are said to have pushed back still farther the German army. which is advancing along the Belgian frontier to the coast. French Retake Armentieres. is The battle which culminated in 5 Armentieres again coming under ly French infl:uence la!.ed for a week. Sduring which the tightirg was hard RI and continuous. The town was seized by the Germans last week owing to its importance as a railway center, 'lines diverging from it in all direc tions. Besides it is on the road to w le Lille. which the Germans still hold d despite reports to the contrary. The su i battle opened ith cavalry fighting, dl Le which gradually developed into a gen- so eral battle, which indicates that the at French are advancing in force to- St ward Lille. The allies also have made an ad- er d. vance north of the La Basse canal, Al d. between that line and Arras and at cc a- certain points between Arras and the Oise. This latter is a rather long g front. * tr Reinforcements For Germans. vi The Germans, however, are bring- R' Ii- ing up reinforcements, semingly de- hI n- termined to resume the offensive il- either toward Calais or at some other El ps point of the long tront. Berlin says is it is not know where these new re troops are going, but the allies probe- T he bly soon will learn their destination, hi be as their aviators are said to be very t busy everywhere over the German SI or lines. It is thought here, however, ot that it probably will be some days be- d sh fore the Germans make their prts- as enee felt. although they have made a Ib he reputation for quick movements. S e In the center and in the Vosges a is the situation is stationary. This is now taken here to mean that no fight- b ing is taking place, and it is consid- ii ered likely that the battle of the S Alsace frontier, which has been going w on for some days, has yet to reach S Ier its end.

Later five young Germans who. 0 according to Mr. Patterson. were "on ' board a neutral vessel plying between neutral ports" were forced to sign s parole to procure their liberty. "This was an outrage committed on American soil, under the American flag," said Mr. Patterson. "the pas sengers of an American vessel were all practically imprisoned by French officers and men." Mr. Patterson said the captain and virtually all officers of the Metapan r were British subjects and that the captain served the French "with alar- e rity." The letter declared that Isaa b f Manning. American consul at Bara- n Squiula. who was on the vessel, had drawn up a report to the State De e partment. t Senator Thomas' statement caused I Senator Stone, chairman of the For eign Relations Committe to interrupt f L the proceedings of the State with a warning to belligerent nations to re n spect the rights of the United States n as a neutral nation. M "When we are performing our duty to maintain neutrsMy." said Senator ii Stone, "nations involved in war f should be careful to recognise our V rights and keep faith with us. I "If they fail to do so, then the re a sponsibility of violating the rights t a of a neutral power will rest upon 5 their heads. The government of the h United States will maintain its post 7 tion. but it is well for other nations to know that we will not look with in h difference on the violation of the n righst and privileges of our own gov n ernment or our own citizens. e "Much has been said concerning rights and privileges of belligerent n nations, but less has been said about d the rights of neutral powers and I people subject to them. The govern ment of the United States voluntarily assumed an attitude of strict neu trality. "That attitude was taken in good faith and every one connected with the administration of this government in any one of its departments is en Joined to maintain tIat attitude. We i recognize .nd undertake to concede e and enforce the rights of belligerent it powers under international law, but i I thought it an opportune time to say that belligerent powers, if they care for the regard and friendship of this republic should thimselves recognize and strictly observe the rights of a Sneutral power."

The principal ellbt of I the mutual flanking operations has been to extend the battle lines without a either side finding a weak spot. The German army. which besieged I Antwerp, is now free and the Invading It forces have been strengthened other I wise for an assault against some point in the extended battle front. Rigid secrecy is preserved as to the point 1 chosen for this offensive movement. c y The bulletins given out by the Ger- t man headquarters tnrow no light on ' r the nature of the stroke which un- a mistakably is impending.
