Terrific British Drive.
The British drive covers a part of
the field of last year's offensive on the
oorume and the section of the Arras
battle front sbuth of Arras. The Brit
ish center in this thrust is nearly op
posite Cambrai, the important Ger
man base; and railway center, from
which the British line on the Baps-ume-Cambrai
road was about nine
mile! distant as it had stood ' for
several months past. The main force
of the push just launched is apparent

What is known as the Hindebure
line was established by the German
command last spring when the fa-

was a Supposedly impregnable bar
The British and French, however,
showed in the Arras battle last
spring and in the French drive on
the Aisna front that the line was by
no means a bar to their progress and
serious inroads were made upon it
in various attacks on both these
fronts. No definite break, however,

The British movement in its early
phases gives the appearance of be

Come Before the Week
End ; Sutton on Stand.
Red Oak, la., Nov. 21. (Special
Telegram.) The defense rested its
case at 5 o'clock this afternoon in the
Kelly trial and the state at once in
troduced its first witness in rebuttal.
Attorneys in the case state that the
arguments probably will siart tomor
row morning and the case go to the
jury tomorrow evening.
Juf'ge Wheeler this morning ruled
out the testimony of R. J. Harding of
Macedonia, who testified yesterday
afternoon that he heard Kelly read
a letter in the post office at Macedonia
on the morning of the murder, in
which the minister was informed of
the murder and appeared to have
heard it then for the first time.
W. C. Ratcliff, county attorney of
this county at the time of the mur
der, testified concerning his visit with
Kelly in the jail at Sioux Falls, S. D.,
shortly after the mvrder, and stated
that he believed the minister was of
unsound mind at that time. Kelly
was held at that time for sending ob
scene letters through the mails.
Rev. and Mrs. W. J. Ewing of Deep
River told of Kelly s visit at their
home in Villisca where he stayed on
the night of the murder and John
Montgomery, father of the murdered
Mrs. Joe Moore, told of the location
of the stairway in the Moore home
and stated that his daughter was in
the habit of keeping bacon in the
house. A piece of bacon was found
near the bed of the Stillinger girls on
the morning after the murder.

"The kaiser," who is now in jail
at Grand Island, was ordered in

the attorney general and United
States Marshal Flynn will carry out
the order. He will bring "the kaiser"
to Omaha and turn him over to the
military authorities at Fort Crook,
who will take him to fort Douglas,
Utah, the internment camp.
The real name of "the kaiser" is
Martin Schosche., He earned the
nickname because of the "frightful
ness" which he exhibited around
Kearney where he was arrested a few
weeks ago. He was a farm hand near
there, lit showed the same devotion
to militarism as William Hohenzol
lern of Berlin.
Was Well Armed.
His arsenal consisted of a rifle, a
shotgun and a revolver of large
caliber. He slept with the latter
strapped to the bed post. He was not

United States. Quite the opposite.

possession was a letter from a friend
in San Francisco, telling him that he
had been drawn in the first draft and
advising him not to try to avoid mili
tary service. He declined to return
to San Francisco and join the se
lected army. . .
Martin, a man about 35 years old,
lived for 21 years near Blair, Neb. He
is alleged to have stated freely that
he would fight for the kaiser if he
could, and that he would be glad to
take up arms against the United
States. He even told Marshal Flynn
that his sympathies were all with Ger

Washington, Nov. 21. Thousands
of unnaturalized Germans were forced
to move today from their homes near

terminals and other establishments de

Wilson's alien enemy proclamation.
For many the new regulations
meant not only the actual moving of
the place of residence, but the loss
of jobs in the forbidden areas.
To those without work, including
many with dependents, the federal em
ployment agencies were open and, the
officials were emphatic in explanation
that the help of these agencies in find
inp new employment for the alien en

only one evdence of the government's
anxiety to treat law-abiding Germans
with courtesy and consideration while
applying the draic rules to detect

Along the Atlantic coast where
danger from alien plotters is con
