Between these woods and our linos, the attack was mown down by a combined rifle, machine gun and artillery fire, not a man getting to within 40 yards of our trenches. . "Further north, between Hulluch and tho quarries, the attack was similarly beaten off with a very heavy loss, and here our troops, following up the beaten enemy, secured a German trench west of Cite St. Elie. "The enemy only succeeded in pene trating our front line at one point in the southern communication trench of the TTnhpiixftlWn redoubt, which is still in our hands. Here he was promptly driven out by our bombers. "Our reserves were not required at any part of the front. It is certain that wo inflicted avery severe reverse on the enemy. Our casualties prove to be even less than tho first low estimate. "The renort in the German official communication of the 11th that a strong British attack northeast of Vermelles failed with great loss is entirely false, Xo attacks were, made, and no losses were incurred other than those described above. "Yesterday 11 fights in the air took place, in nine of which our airmen were successful. One hostile aeroplane was driven to the ground inside the enemy's lines and was almost certainly destroyed. This morning another enemy machine was brought down in our lines. We lost one aeroplane. "AMERICA FACES DECISION." Whether It Will Lead South America to World War. San Francisco, Cal-, Oct. 12. Women had complete charge of to-day's after noon meeting of the International Peace congress. With Mrs. John F. Merrill presiding, the program included address es by Mrs. Lucia Ames Mead, author, of Boston; Miss Eva Marshall Shontz, of Chicago, organizer of the Women's Peace party, and Mrs. Robert J. Burdetts. Mrs. Mead said: a- "America faces to-day a decision which affects not only ourselves, but the whole world. This decision will settle the question, whether the safest nation in the world will set the example for South America and Asia of sole reliance on ex plosives for defense, or whether it will inaugurate a new policy, assume world leadership and save the Orient, the Lat in republics and exhausted J-.urope from a policy that will lead to a world war. If we must take a reactionary course, so must others; if this exhausted Europe means new menace to us, it means men ace to all other lands as well. If we decide to follow Maxim and Plattaburg orators, all the world must soon give its mind to the machinery of terror. W e must spend not only two dollars out of three fur war past and future, but, with an empty treasury by January, we must tax citizens not only to feed bread lines but to pay two dollars and a half out of every three to prepare more muni tions that will yield mors bread linos here ami everywhere. This is a time which commands ev ery. patriot solemnly to choose whether this great nation shall lead Asia upward or drag her with ourselves down to the level of terror and conscription on which Europe will live if we follow her past example. "Mere technicians dealing with me chanical and material problem are asked to decide our defense not accord ing to our dangers, but according to oth er nation' armament. Our enormous and nearly unique non-military defense, and the geographic and psyeologieal con dition are ignored. Men ordinarily sane are like a panic-stricken child who shriek. 'Suppose a lion came up the front sUl.-,., what should I do?' "The submarine, which has prevented sny British ships for a year from bom barding the German coast, show why rifle practice for u ia superfluous a de fense from invasion. If we must keep up present expense, at least let appropri ations go for ueh coast defense gsint hypothetic invasion. Dispense with new battleship and cruiser for offence.

Also That There is an Abnormal Bunch; ' r Sues for $10,000. Rutland, Oct. 12. A trial which prom ises much of interest was started in Rutland county court yesterday after noon when a jury wan empanelled and some testimony taken in the suit brought by Fred L. Hanker of Fair Ha ven against Dr. John II. Carty, a well known physician of Fair Haven. The plaintiff seeks to recover $10,000, alleg ing malpractice in the setting of a brok en leg. At the close of his story on the witness stand yesterday afternoon, Mr. Banker removed his shoe and stocking and displayed to the jury his right leg which he claims is badly twisted and bears a large bunch just a few inches above the ankle. Following the direct testimony of Mr. Banker, lie. was qross-evamined a short time by Attorney T. W , Maloney, se nior counsel for the defense, and from the few questions asked it was appar ent that the defense will claim some contributory acts by the plaintiff which tended to retard the proper healing of the fracture. Dr. C. F. Ball testified to taking two X-ray plates of the leg and these with photographs printed from the plates were , introduced as evidence. Dr. Ball explained how the bones had slipped by each other and how one side of the leg was shorter than the other. He answered a number of technical ques tions. - On cross examination the plaintiff was questioned concerning several trips to the state line where he said he visited his wife's brother. ' He Senied being out with crutches the day after the leg was set in the cast and he also denied he was moved from his bed while the leg wag originally in the splint and frac - . ture box.

Pedro Garcia, who was detained at police headquarters Saturday when 12 brass knuckles were found in a box which he carried, and who was after ward admitted to bail, in the sum of $500, was discharged from custody after a hearing before Magistrate II. W. Scott in city court this forenoon. Garcia and one of his countrymen leave, for Spain to-night and the box of finger rings was returned to the former. Chief Sinclair and Officer David Henderson testified to detaining the man, and Grand Juror Wil liam Wishart, who represented the state, offered the box- of knuckles as "silent witnesses" to the alleged fact that tho respondent did not intend to use all of them himself. Attorney J. Ward Carver, who ap peared for the defense, declared that the evidence did not tend to show that Gar cia had the knuckles in his possession with the idea of selling them, giving them away or parting with, within the meaning of the statute, and it was on his motion that the respondent was dis charged. In nol prossing the case, Mag istrate Scott stated that there must be evidence to show that Garcia intended the knuckles for use within the state if the charge were to be sustained. The respondent s statement that the rings were purchased for his brother, who con ducts a general store in Spain, was gen erally accepted as being true, and state ments made in the course of the hear ing tended to show that Garcia had just emerged from the postotlice with the package when he was arrested and that he had not examined its contents. "BIRTH OF A NATION" OPENED NEW THEATRE Big Historical Drama Was Witnessed by Capacity Houses at New Park Theatre and It Made a Deep Impression. Capacity houses greeted the appear ance of "The Birth of a Nation" at the new Park theatre yesterday, the occa sion being the opening of that attractive playhouse under the management of John B. Fames, recently of Manchester, N. II.. Charles Zanleoni, jr., and James J. Goodwin of this city. Matinee and evening audiences were thrilled by the presentation of the great historical drama and the concensus of opinion soemed to be that the lessees of that theatre, erected by Mr. and Mr. Charles Zanleoni, made no mistake in securing an epoch-making photoplay for the open er. An orchestra of lfl pieces which trav els with the film was augmented by lo cal musicians, and the music, it may be said in all truth, contributed very liber ally to the success of the opening. Of "The Birth of a Nation," so much has been written that comment here would seem like a surplusage. No audience of movie lovers could sit passively through the unreeling of that film. Comment on the appearance of the new theatre were of an entirely flattering-nature' and left no doubt in the minds of those who have been promoting the project that a modern movie theatre in Barre Is to fill a long-felt want. Throughout the present week, during which "The Birth of a Nation" is to be shown at afternoon and evening shows, the management i making a ecial ef fort to make the patrons of film photog raphy feel that a warm welcome is awaiting them at the Fark. The re sponse from out-of-town movie lovers haa been spontaneous and in both audi ences yesterday were nianv people who came from s. distance to see the film and to inspect the theatre. Every day this week matinee show are to be given at :15 o'clock and evening performances at 8 o'clock. Beginning next week, the week's bill mill be heralded on each preceding Sat urday by magartnes aent out by the management. Paramount, Metro and general feature films are to be shown regularly and an orchestra composed of well known local musician will play at each performance after thia week. MINISTERS ELECT OFFICERS.
