Only American Woman There
Did Not Know the Yankees
Were Fighting on
West Front.
London,' Oct 21. Scenes of hap
piness in Bruges eclipsed those at
Lille after the liberation of the two
cities, according to the correspon
dent of the Daily Mail. During
the occupation of Bruges by the
Germans the people there were not
allowed to receive' news from the
outer world unless the news was
handled by the German officers.
The correspondent writes:
"When the only American wo
man left in Bruges was told of the
deeds of Americans in France she
cried with happiness: 'Oh, if I had
only known that.'"
Bruges was fined enormous sums
on various occasions, the corre
spondent says and everything made
it metal taken away.
Searched for Copper.
The city was searched four times
, for copper. The works at Bruges
were robbed of every scrao of ma
chinery. The town itself is intact.
Most of the pictures remain in the
gallery and Bruges seems to be as
restful as in the old days except
that al the bridges are gone.
With the British Army in France,
Oct. 20. (By Associated Press.)
. -Roubaix and Turcoing today
celebrated their deliverance from
the enemy.
The people of the two cities were
vild with emotional jov. There
, were kisses, hugs and handshakes
for every British soldier. There was
jood reason for Roubaix and Tur
coinjar to celebrate. The swash
buckling Germans had gone, leav
ing in their wake as much ruin as
they could do. Nearly every home
In the city had been sacked and
; things that could not be carried
; sway were destroyed.
Homes Are Wrecked.
Piqued at being forced to leave
" the towns the Germans went to ex
; treme lengths to defile, destroy and
steal. Roubaix and Turcoing were
systematically burglarized. In Rou
baix the Germans cut fine leather
j seats from chairs, ripped pictures
1 from their frames, and even took
v the cloth coverings of mattresses.
I Apparently they went through the
fine old homes of the city with
'' the idea of seeing how thoroughly.
they could wreck the interiors. In
many places they deliberately broke j
everything they could lay their
hands on.
For miles around Roubaix and
Turcoing the countryside has been
singed and scorched by the red
heat of war. Broken cannon,
rusted rifles, pieces of shell, barbed
' ..wire and the bayonets nd . other
equipment of soldiers are scattered
, all about. There are miles of man
gled fields where the shell craters
are so thick that it is impossible
to tell where one begins and the
other leaves off. Here and there
: arc old machine gun mounds of
stone, concrete and dirt. The trees
are leafless and many have been
chewed to pieces by flying shells
and bullets.
Belgians' Partial
Bill Against Huns
Now $1,692,252,000
t. London. Oct. 21. Some of the
items which figure on Germany's
bill in Belgium are, given as follows
from an official Belgian source:
V Local. contributions and fines lev
i ied by Germany on Belgium in 1914,
, 8,000,000.
' War contributions from Novem
ber, 1914, to October, 1916, 38,
. 400,000.
War contributions, seven months,
: to May, 1917, 14,000,000.
War contributions from May,
. 1917, to May, 1918, 28,800,000.
War contributions from June to
October of the current year, 15,
000.000. Raw materials and machinery tak
' en by the Germans were reckoned
by them in January, 1915, at 80,
000,000. The damage to December,
1914, estimated by the North Ger
man Gazette amounted to 200,
000,000. -This makes a grand total
of 384.200.000, or, in round num
bers. $1,692,252,000.
These items do not include ma
. terial destruction and requisitions
since January, 1915, which alone
must be reckoned at several hun
dred million pounds.
During the winter of 1916 Belgian
workingmen to the number of 1,
750,000 were deported to Germany.
The future production of these men
- was thus totally lost to their coun
try. Turkish Newspapers
Want Separate Peace
With Allied Nations
Amsterdam, Oct. 21. The cor
respondent at Constantinople of the
Weser Zeitung of Bremen, says that
it must be admitted public opinion
for some time past favored a separ
ate oeact for Turkey. This view
underwent a change as a result of
Prince Maximilian s speech in the
reichstag.Nvhich also strengthened
the position of the party of union
and progress.
Proposals are now being dis
cussed, the correspondent continues.
. for a reformation in Turkey, accord
ing to which Constantinople would
. become a free port and the fortifi
cations of the Dardanelles disman-
tied, on condition that the powers
guaranteed the continuance of Con
stantinople as the capital of Tur
key. It is further proposed to grant
autonomy to Arabia, Syria, Armenia
and the Jewish zone in Palestine.
Influential Turkish newspapers
continue to advocate a separate
peace, with the entente. Y 1 .

pushed to the wall It is assumed
also that they want to pKpare grad
ually the German public for a re"
alization of what has happened to
their military machine and the war
lords' dream of power so as to avoid
a complete collapse of government.
: Diplomatic observer. point out
that the president is at liberty, with
perfect consistency, to make no re
sponse at this time but to await de
velopments; to await the perform
ance of the promises of the Ger
mans not to torpedo passenger
ships, their implied promise to work
no more destruction during the re
treat from Belgium and France than
military necessity requires, and fi
nally to await further development
of the political leaven that evident
ly is working toward the complete
overthrow of military and autocraf
ic power in the empire.
Hostilities Not Over.
No one believes that an immedi
ate cessation of "hostilities is in
sight The opinion most generally
held is that if Mr. Wilson decides
to make a reply.and if the entente
governments agree, the only step
nnsih1e at this time would be to
sanction arrangements to be dicta
ted by General Foch in tne neia tor
withdrawal of the Germans without
further fighting. ' Such arrange
ments, of course, would be contin
gent upon guaranties of continued
supremacy of the victorious allied
armiesrand consequently virtually
would mean surrender tor tne Ger
mans. . .
The official view here so tar nas
been that evacuation of invaded ter
ritory must be completed before
there can be an armistice. Should
President Wilson, after consultation
with the allies, adhere to the view,
the work of driving the Germans to
and across their own borders would
proceed and the opportunity for fix
ing details which the new note sug
gests "be brought about" would
come only through a request from
the Gerlnan lines under a white flag
from the battlefield.-
Denials Unimportant.
Little imoortance is attached to
the protests and denials in the note
regarding German brutality and
ruthless destruction of property.
The important thing is whether
atrocities now stop. As to an in
vestigation by a neutral commis
sion, as suggested in the note, the
president indicated long ago that
such investigations come to noth
ing except in connection with ar
rangements for final peace.
Regarding the Uerman aeniai oi
unnecessary destruction of prop
erty by the retiring armies, military
experts say that undoubtedly sucn
armies are authorized under inter
national law to work terrible havoc
in evacuated territory.
But there is one prime condition
to be met all of this must be done
with the sole purpose of damaging
and retarding the . pursuing .army;
Bridges may be destroyed, stores ot
food burned and. even, buildings
which might shelter enemy troops.
But it is not permitted to poison
wells, to destroy fruit trees or to
loo5t and destroy private property
which would be of no . use, to either
army, or, in fact, to commit any of
the acts of wanton deviltry which
are charged against the' German
armies. ' '
Senate Would Stop Notes
Senator Poindexter of Washing
ton, republican, introduced a joint
resolution today proposing that
congress forbid further negotiations
by the United States with Germany
looking to the granting of an armis
tice or peace until the German mili-1
tary forces have surrendered un
conditionally. It was : referred to
the foreign relations committee.
The resolution further calls for
the prosecution of the war with the
utmost vigor and the occupation and
control by the allies ' of such Ger
man territory as can be obtained by
our military forces until peace ne
gotiations have been concluded. It
would declare it unlawful for any of
ficial of the American government
to answer in any way, note, mes
sage or representation from ' the
uermaa government or the Uerman
people or from any official repre
senting or purporting to represent
them on the subject of peace or an
armistice until the German armed
forces shall have surrendered. t
Doesn't Look for Armistice.
Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska,
chairman of the senate foreign rela
tions committee, said tonight that
while the German government ap
parently has accepted all the require
ments laid down by President Wil
son, he did not believe he reply
would lead to an immediate arrmis
tice. Senator Lodge of Massachusetts,
the republican leader, and other sen
ators, reserved comment until the
official text of the reply is received.
"The note appears," said Senator
Hitchcock, "to be an acceptance of
the president's stipulations. In my
judgment, however, it will not lead
to an armistice immediately. I think
the military authorities will make
conditions so hard that Germany
will hesitate to accept them, and
that this will lead to a delay in ne
gotiations over an armistice. In the
meanwhile the war will go on.
"As far as the change in the Ger
man constitution is concerned, the
presidents demands have apparently
been met, although Germany avoids
stating that it was done, at the presi
dent's request and seeks to give the
impression that it was done upon
the demands of the German peo
ple." -

city of Ghent, an objective which
the allies have always had in mind,
is yet seven miles away. Probably
it will be outflanked trom tne norm
before it is taken. Allied troops al
ready have made considerable prog
ress With this end in view.
Having cleared the Germans out
of western Belgium, the allied forces
are standing on a line trom tne
Dutch frontier to the Oise canal
that is virtually straight. A new
movement has begun to the east of
Courtrai, the object of which is to

The economic independence of
Hungary is to be proclaimed at an
early date in a manifesto which is
reported will be issued by Emperor
Charles. Hungary will be permitted
to maintain her own army and her
own diplomatic corps.
British Headquarters in France,
Oct. 21. (Reuter's.) It is the gen
eral impression that the resistance
of th enemv everywhere is stiffen
ing. Apparently the rapidity of the
British drive in Flanders and north'
em France has caused the enemy to
realize that the allied forces are ap
proaching the fatherland at a rate
that, if not checl.ed, might before
kng, find the long range guns pitch
ing shells across the Rhine. There
fore, the enemy is pulling himself
together with a view to delaying to
the utmost the allied advance.
Heavy Rain Falls.
In heavv fighting, which proceeded
throughout the night Aid continued
today in a heavy rain, the Germans
everywhere were driven still further
eastward. In Belgium the allies are
three miles from becloo, and in tne
whole vast stretch between Courtrai
and the Dutch border the British,
French and Belgians are pushing the
Germans before them, closing in to
ward Ghent, from which they are
now less than seven miles.
In the center of the battle area
the British are on the west bank of
the Scheldt for more than 10 miles,
north of Toutnai, in front, of which
city the Germans are resisting stub
bornly with machine guns. Frontally
the British have reached positions
less than four miles from Valen
ciennes. Northwest of Valenciennes
they have entered the great Vi-coigto-Raismet
forest. In the re
gion northwest of Lille, the British
are pushing out in the general direc
tion of LeQuesnoy, fighting every
foot of the way.
The Germans here and there in
Belgium have held out strongly in
enormous concrete forts, from
which the juns had been removed.
These forts were used by German
machine gunners and in some cases
it required shells from heavy guns
to crack them.
More prisoners have been cap
tured, the third armv taking over
2,500 yesterday.
Three German Planes
Downed by American
Flyer in Single Day
With the American Army North
west of Verdun, Oct. "21. Three
German airplanes were brought
down, on Friday by Lt. Cleveland
McDermott of Syracuse, N. Y. This
was disclosed by further details re
ceived today of the exploit of this
airman, who previously was reported
to have bjrought down one Fokker
on that day.
This increases to 18 the number
of German, machines destroyed- on

and the other American aviators,
who were protecting the planes en

After bringing down his first op
ponent the lieutenant was attacked
by five Fokkers. He maneuvered
toward the American lines, fighting
all the time and sending down one
of the Germans. Just before his ma
chine was downed near Bneulles he
winged the third German. This

Press Comment
On German Note
Chicago-Tribune: From the Ger
man response it is apparent that the
ruling powers at Berlin now look
complete defeat in the face. There
is but one mind in America on this
war, that it shall go on to victory,
to the utter destruction of Prussian
militarism and to the establishment
of peace founded on its ashes.
Des Moines Register: If the Ger
man government were different than
it is, and the purpose of Germany in
the war had been different, the note
would lead to an immediate cessa
tion of hostillities. As it is, we may
doubt whether the president will
consent1 to continue the correspond
Baltimore American: There is
nothing in this note actually to pro
mote peace; the evident disposition
of the German authorities is to give
way step by step as they are forced
so to do. The United States and
its allies haVe yet before them to
follow out the prescription of force
and with&ut stint and limit. This
will be followed until Germany has
been brought to a full concession of
ally and American demands.
Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution: The
latest German note to President
Wilson is involved and ambiguous.
Now, let us refer all further
communications from Germany to
General Foch for his attention. If
we are to have peace it will come
that way.
New York Times: The terms of
peace will be just to the rest of the
world, however, harsh uertnany and
the German people may deem them
to be. It remains for them not to
choose the terms, but to accept
whatever terms may be imposed.
The -armies of . Marshal Foch will
give them no respite until they
come to that conclusion.
New York Tribune: They have
maneuvered for an armistice which
would save their precious father
land from an invasion and lead to
a peace conference based upon Mr.
Wilson's conditions, which provide
for Germany's restoration to free
seas and free trade and omit to men
tion moral punishment or repara
tion. If that is what the American
people have been fighting for, let
them hold their peace, if not, then
now is the time to speak.
New York Sun: The great fact
that stands forth in the last note
of "the present German govern
ment is the swift progress of that
government in the direction of un
conditional surrender The
apparent intent is to
bring the people to a state
of mind which shall realize and ac
cept the defeat now inevitable, with
out turning upon the dynasty pri
marily responsible for the national
Philadelphia Public Ledger: The
general feeling will be that he must
be trusted to answer this last hu-
mination from Berlin without any
pressure of uninformed public
opinion upon him, one way or the
Washington Post: The communi
cation is nothing else than an ef
fort to obtain relief for the Ger
man army by uttering a series of
falsehoods and false promises to
President Wilson. There should
be only one answer hereafter to
anything that Geranmy may say:
'Surrender to Foch.'
New York Herald: Today as on
the heels of the American note of
October 8, the demand of the Am
erican people will be no armistice,
no negotiatnons, no discussions, no
peace until there is open admission
of defeat by whatever government
Germany may have, and no thought
of peace until the German armies
have surrendered unconditionally.
On with the war We have just
begun to fight.
New York German Herold: An
examination of the wireless ver
sion, seems to show that there is at
least some endeavor on the port of
Germany to 'fulfill the basic con
ditions as enunciated by Mr. Wil
son We trust the German rulers
are, at last, inclined to let reason
rule and see things as they are.
Boston Globe: The ink and paper
of the German reply to President
Wilson are new; but it is the same
old handwriting. Item by item, the
note reveals its insincerity.
New York World: Germany is
not yet ready to admit its defeat and
accept the terms which it begins to
fear are to be imposed by its tri
umphant adversaries. When it pres
ently recognizes that it cannot win
in the field and that all its strate-
gems elsewhere do not involve its
adversaries in jealousies and dis
putes, it will yield, as many another
nation as proud if not as powerful
has had to yield.
Chicago Herald-Examiner: Ger
many's latest communication to
President Wilson, as reported from
London, is characteristically indefi
nite. It is far from a surrender. If
the London text is authentic, it
would be a safe bet that the war is
still on.
Los Angeles Times: Two things
have apparently been achieved; the
U-boat atrocities have been stopped
and kaiserism has been put out of
business. Now let us submit armis
tice questions to the supreme war
St Louis Globe-Democrat: What
ever the German note means, it is
wholly unsatisfactorily and wholly
hypocritical. It does not come to
the point. It is a mere beating
about the bush to gain time, to save
the Germatj face.
1 Kansas City Times: Germany is
beaten: fundamentally beaten. She
might fight on for months. . But her
doom Is written in the only lan
guage she understands the lan
guage of arms, xxx The only possi
ble peace is the peace of uncondi
tional surrender. The sooner Ger
many is given to understand this
the better. .
Boston Herald: We hope the
president will break off these ne
gotiations by proclaiming at once
the keynote of the situation. ' This
keynote is unconditional surrender.
Details Given to Public by As
sistant Secretary Roose
velt; Mine Barrage One
By Associated Press.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 21.
Construction of the North sea mine
barrage against submarines, agree
ment to lay an oil pipe line across
Scotland, establishment of naval
aviation stations from the Spanish I
border to the English channel, and
other details of the work of the
American navy in foreign waters
were given to the public today by
Assistant Secretary Roosevelt, who
recently returned from a visit to
"The American people seem to
have very little idea of the extent of
our naval activities abroad," said
Secretary Roosevelt. "The tendency
is to think merely of the convoying
and patrol work our destroyers and
other vessels are doing and the
presence of our battleships with the
British fleet. But important as this
is it is only a part of our activities
and there are dozens of other things
of importance of which little has
been said."
"The building of the northern mine
barrage was one of the biggest
things ever accomplished in ord
nance work," Mr. Roosevelt said.
"In turning out material for it, a
number of plants in this country
were kept busy for months. Several
American bases were established on
the British coast to lay and handle
the mines.
"To save haulage of oil, the Am
erican navy has undertaken to con
struct a pipe line across Scotland.
"All the way from the Spanish
border clear around to the English
channel," said Mr. Roosevelt, "we
have established aviation stations so
spaced that the entire coast line is
covered by seaplanes and dirigibles.
These stations were built almost en
tirely by our sailors. At each sta
tion there is an average of from 200
to 300 men. This aviation force and
our patrol vessels have been doing
such splendid work that for the past
six months there have been prac
tically no sinkings within 50 miles
of the French coast. We hope to
extend this patrol zone to a 100
In northern France, in co-operation
with the British and Belgians,
Secretary Roosevelt said there had
been established what is known as
the northern bombing group, com
posed of a number of aviation units
which did much to prevent the Ger
mans from against using Zeebrugge
and Ostend as submarine bases.
Navy in Italy. .
An American naval force co-operating
with the British at Gibraltar
is patrolling the Atlantic in that
vicinity and is acting as convoy to
vessels going to and from Italy,
Greece and Egypt. There is a fly
ing school with several naval avia
tion units on duty in Italy while in
the Adriatic is a large group of sub
marine chasers.
Each naval base has its hospital,
Secretary Roosevelt said, and in
Scotland an entire watering place
has been taken over by the Amer
icans for use as a hospital.
Conditions have vastly improved
from what they were . last year,"
said the secretary, in referring to the
submarine menace, "but we cannot
afford to let uo in our activities for
one single second. In regard to the
respect which U-boats have shown
for international law, you nave out
to ask any officer or man in our own
or in the British or French navies.
They will tell you of, and prove to
you, great numbers ot actual cases
where the Hun has violated every
rule and principle of humanity."
