There is trouble among the oyster
men of Terrebonne parish, and the
commission's launch Louisiana has
been dispatched to the scene to see
to the enforcement of the regulations
of the commission. 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 oystermen made no secret of
the fact that they intended to descend
on the beds leased by the commis
sion with about seventy-five boats.
but the sheriff of the parish inter
vened, and it is said that but nine
boats started on the depredating trip.
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.

TIAHURE HILL AGAIN
TAKEN BY GERMANS
AFTER NUMEROUS COUNTER.
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."

AUSTRIANS CROSS
BORDER OF SERVIA
FRANCE CLAIMS TO HAVE
CLEARED BULGARIANS OUT
OF VELES DISTRICT.
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
