PARIS, Oct. 20. Increasing satis
faction was shown by the people of
Paris today on reading the latest re
ports from the front. These indicate
that the allies are continuing their
offensive operations, whien in the
opinion of French observers, promise
the best results. The action of the
Belgian army and of a squadron of
warships in repulsing an attack by
the enemy Is a subject of particularly
favorable comment. .
The public was equally gratified
by the announcement of the situa
tion in Alsace. This was the first
time in some days that the war of
fice has indicated definitely the
French positions. It Is now seen
that the French troops have almost
reached the outlet of the valley lead
ing to the plains of the River III,
which flows north In Atlace and
empties into the Rhine.
The French now consider that they are
firmly established In Alsace on territory
doubly dear to them. Word has been re
ceived also that the Germans are hastily
preparing . nsw - defensive ' works around
Strassburg. .and... digging . Innumerable
trenches'. In front, of this city. . Vineyards
bare "been levelled hy the German en
glneers In carylng outhis work.
The fighting In tha vicinity of Mile
has been watched with deep Interest here,
and it Is hoped that not-many days will
pass before the allies take this position.
ins institute 01 vranee, arter -a pro
longed and lively meeting, has decided to
read in public at Its annual meeting next
Monday the report of five of Its members
condemning tha course of Germany In
tba present war. ,
After long continued negotiations
through the Intermediary of the Ameri
can legation at Berne, Switserland. ex.
changes are about to be made among the
belligerent cbuntrlea of Interned civilians,
tt has been decided that all 'women' and
children and all males under 17 y ears of
age will be exchanged between Franca
and Austria. So far as known here the
arrangements with Germany hare not
ben fully completed,' but It Is believed
tfat ssveral tralnldada of German civil
Uns In France win be allowed to go to
the German . frontier. Certain German
men over 17 years of age and military
prisoners will cot be returned.

That the allies are frustrating
the attempt of the reinforced ex
treme right wing of the German
army to skirt the English channel
ports with the supposed object of
finding a new route to Paris, is
indicated by the French otfclal
statement, given out yesterday,
which asserts that the Belgian
army is maintaining its position on
the River Yser.
Further actions, the statement
adds, are being fought between
the allies and the Germans In the
region of Ypre, Belgium. From
Ypres the allied left wing extends

have been expatriated. Lord Gladstone's

during the last week, and tha women's

Holland last week,' reports that in eight
cities of ' Holland the refugees number
nearly SflO.OOO; In other words, they are
more numerous than the. native popula
tion, Tha'Folksfbne committee alone haa
the names of 10,000 refugees on Us lists,
some among them having little money
and only a few winter clothing.
Folkestone already has established a
maternity homo and two hospitals, which
are well filled. There are many gentle
folk among these fugitive Belgians. Who
are not used to labor and who accept
Maay CoatSBlttees at Mark.
Tha London committee has twenty
seven subcommittees In dlfferept cities
in England, Scotland and . Wales, and
these organizations are placing refugees
In homes as rapidly as possible. Alex
andra palace Is being used as the central
point for the reception work. Lady Mc
Dowell and Latdy Kmmott head commit

which work la done by boy soouts .
Belgian wounded are acattared In Brit
