"The canker problem is indeed a serious one for the Gulf States, and while it has not yet touched Louisi ana the growers here should be in terested.

Commissioner Holmes has also gone to the scene. A number of oystermen of the section have resolved to test the validity of the enactments in respect of the leas ng of oyster beds. and it is said have engaged the services of the well known law firm of Beatty and Beat ty to represent them. and are report ed to be acting under legal advice.

The old matter of the lease of natural reefs is said to be involved in the di1 pute. but this is denied by persons connected with the commission. If it be true that Beatty and Beatty have taken up the defense of the oyster men a lively fight may be looked for.

ATTACKS FRENCH HAVE BEEN FORCED FROM POSITION. FIRE ON BELGIAN SECTOR Threatened Attacks of the Teutons Forestalled by Activity of French Guns-German Losses Re ported 80 Per Cent. London.-Tahure Hill. in the Cham pagne district, recently taken by the French, has again fallen to the Ger mans. After numerous counter-at tacks the French have been forced from the position. Counter-attacks were immediately launched by the French, which still are in progress. There has been some fighting in the west, but without change of posi tions. The Germans directed a severe artillery fire on the Belgian sector of Lombaertzyde apparently in prepara tion for an infantry attack, but the activity of French guns prevented an assault. What the attacks on this front have cost is shown by a report issued by Field Marshal Sir John French. He says that the published list of the German casualties discloses that sev en German battalions which took part in the Loos fighting-presumably a German counter-attack-lost 80 per cent of their strength. The following official communica tion was issued by the Paris War Ofce : "In Belgium, in the sector of Lom beertayde, a spirited bombardment by the enemy was accompanied by obvi ous preparations for attacks which the immediate intervention of our artil lery prevented. "In Champagne, on the whole front between Hill 193 and Tahure and to the south of the village, the Germans bombarded our positions. They man ne* their trenches and set up scaling ladders. The barrier wire of our batteries and machine guns stopped this attempt or this sham at an at tack. "The /Belgian communication re ports slight activity of the enemy ar tllery. Pervise, Noordschoote and Pypegard have been bombarded." The German report follows: "In the Champagne the French be. gan a counter-attack at Tahure dur ing the afternoon and were repulsed. The hill of Tahure, which was taken by storm of our troops on Octiber 30, remained in our hands. The number of prisoners taken during the last few days has been increased to 31 officers and 1,277 men. "Lively hand-to-hand fighting took place near Combres." U. . Steel Profits Grow.

London.-The Germans. with their Austrian and Bulgarian allies, are still trying to cut off the retreat of the main Servian army, which is of fering spirited resistance as it re tires. While Field Marshal von Mack ensen's force advances slowly from the north, the Austrians have crossed the western border of Servia south of Vishegrad and are moving east ward, and the Bulgarians are march lag westward on a wide front from Pirot, southeast of Nish, to Zajecar. It is a long way across, and the country is dimcult to traverse, but the Bervians are bound to defend it as, long as possible, as their great ar senal at Kraguyevats is situated iq this area, and they doubtless will hold on with the hope of making an eventual retirement in the mountains along the Montenegrin frontier. and in that country. To forestall this the Austrians also are attacking in Montenegro, but have made little progress, as the Montene gine under their veteran lghting king have had' a long time to prer re for Just such an event, and have beat en off all attacks. In fact, the Monte negrins hold some strong positions In Austrian territory, out of whieh they will have to be driven before their awn country is invaded. There is no change in the southern area of Servia so far asu knwn. A re port that Uskub has been recaptured is not conirmed. The French, how. ever, claim to have cleared the Bul garians out of the Veles district. This, if true, would render Uskub an nsafe place for the invaders, In the opinion of military men.
