Allied forces are drawing closer to their immediate objectives on three offensive fronts Veles, in Serbia; Amman in Palestine, and St. Quentiue, in France. The latest reports show the Serbians within ten miles of Veles, the important Bulgarian concentration point on the Uskub-Sa-louika railway. The Bulgars are retreating rapidly on the whole 100-mile front between Mona stir and Lake Doiran, while unofficial reports indicate that a retrograde move ment may be expected, or already is under way, on the entire Balkan front from the Adriatic to the Aegean. Actual invasion of Bulgarian territory by British cavalry apparently is about to be accomplished. British troops, driving eastward from the Jordan, and Arabs pushing north ward along the Hedjaz Railway are con verging upon Amman, toward which a part of the Turkish army is retreating. Capture of this town believed imminent, is expected to paralyze Turkish resis tance in the whole region south of Damascus.

WEEKLY REVIEW OF WA With 1,750,000 American troops now in France, news from the several bat tle fronts has been continuously good. On the western front the new Ameri can line In Lorraine was- quickly sta bilized. The enemy has been hur riedly straightening his line of de fense, which lies only a mile or two In front of the American line on a front of about 20 miles, from near Maizeray to the Moselle river at Van dires. The Yankees are sow 10 miles away from Conflans and 12 miles away from Metz, the great German fortress In Lorraine. In Plcardy the British and French renewed their advance on the Cam-brai-St. Quentin front, toward the old Hindenburg line. In spite of the con centration of the enemy forces de fending this sector they have made steady progress and the enemy is re ported to have lost very heavily. It is officially confirmed that 10,000 pris oners have been captured by the allies. On the plateau northeast of Sois sons the French have continued to force back the enemy's best troops until they are now within half a mile from the junction of the Mauberge road and the Chemin-des-Dames and within 10 miles of Laon, which is being shelled. - "" On the Balkan front the Serbian army attacked the Bulgarians on a front of 25 miles and drove them back about 20 miles.

The allies broke through the enemy lines be tween Rafat and the sea and pushed forward a distance of 15 miles. Eighteen thousand Turks have been taken prisoner. The main Turkish forces In Palestine are being closely pursued by the British. Famous Nazareth baa been taken by the British. ! There appears good reason. to be lieve that the German losses in pris oners alone since the tide turned against them in France would reach well up toward 200,000 were the truth known. The losses in guns and other material have not been computed. Sept. 24 From north of Jerusalem to the sea of Galilee, in the territory lying between the river Jordan and the Mediterranean sea, the Ottoman forces have been caught by the swift drive of the British armies and virtu ally annihilated. The capture of 25, 000 Turks is officially reported.

A great spearhead has been pushed by the Serbians across the Istlb-Prilep road, severing com munications between the Bulgarian army northeast of Monastir and that in the Lake Doiran region. The Ser bians have taken between 9,000 and 10,000 prisoners and 120 guns. British and French made additional gains in operations around St. Quen tin and Cambrai. Sept 26 All along the 100 mile front in Macedonia, from the region north of Monastir to Lake Doiran, the entente armies have pressed fur ther forward against the demoralized Bulgars and Germans, whose rein forcements have not been able to stiffen the line for a face about.

In Palestine, the British on the coast have captured the important towns of Haifa and Acre, while east of the Jordan the Turks are every where In retreat, hard pressed by the British and the tribesmen of the king of Hedjas.

Addressing the committee of the relchstag at Berlin, Count Von Hertllng declared that the public discontent In Germany was not Justified by the military sit uation on the western front. The chancellor opened with the promise to meet the desire of the relchstag for information as far as possible. He proceeded to allude to the "deep discontent which has seized circles of the population," and said that the principal reason was the pressure of the terrible four years of war, with all the de; riva- tions and sufferings brought in Its wake, and the sacrifices imposed on all classes, all families and, more or less, on every individual. "I have no intention of trying to diminish this pressure by words," he said, "but, gentlemen, if this dis content is influenced by our present military situation, by the events on the western front, I must, without desiring to anticipate a statement which we may expect from the war ministry, declare most emphatically that it far exceeds Justifiable limits." Count Von Hertling admitted that the last German offensive wag unsuc cessful and that It had been neces sary to withdraw to the Siegfried line. "The situation is grave," he added, "but we have no cause to be faint-hearted. We have already had to pass through harder times." The chancellor instanced the failure of the Verdun offensive, the Somme battles and Brussiloff's mass assaults, bringing in their train the well re membered unfavorable reaction on the Austro-Italian front. Then came Roumania's entrance into the war. "We never lost courage," he said, "but showed our enemies what a res olute will to victory could do." "How do things stand now? We have peace with Russia and Rou manla and even though conditions in Russia are not yet clear and the fu ture appears uncertain, nevertheless the former menace from two sides has disappeared and a considerable part of our men of the eastern army can be employed In the west" Buy Liberty Bonds" WAYS we There will be pr .aching at Mt.Carmel Sunday by the new pastor, Rev.

We want to end the fight only one way. We want to beat Germrny de cisively. So completely that never again will she be able to plunge the old world into such another nightmare of bloodshed as this has ben. We want to end this world agony. And we can do it only if every fellow does his part. We cannot afford to have the war end in compromise. A drawn battle really means a victory for Germany. Germany licked, but not thoroughly so, still means Germany triumphant. Any com promise will leave Germany in a pori tion to come back again in another forty years or less and deluge the world with blood once more. Germany must be whipped to a stand still. She must be beaten to her knees. She niusl beg for mercy at the feet of her conquerers. In no other way can the German spirit be chastened; The German ambition subdued. She must never be permitted to come out of the war in a position to say that "the whole world fought but could not conquer me." We might as well surrender right off the reel as permit that. For it would only be a matter of years until we should have to fight it oil over again. Right now is the time to finish with Germany. Finish in the way we want to finish. And end it all for all time. None of us have the least idea of sur rendering, it isn't to be considered. But all of us must stand side by side in the duty line. Every fellow must buy Liberty Bonds. It is our only way to win.
