The look' to the mountains and plains was opened today by the taking of Monte Cisnion, which gives to the allies command the yalleys of the BrenUaiidi Cismbn." Domination of the Brenta virtually means possession of the Trentino. The pcmmanrt of the Cis-inon opens the roads to Belluna and beyond. At many' points, east of the Piave there are so many Austrian prlsouors that they block roads over whlcl^ th^y are being marched to the rear. Tho Venetian plain immediately east of the Piave is a scene of dosolaHon. Houses and villages have been ruined by shell lire. When the advanced Italians reached Sacile, they were re.ceived as saviours and the women and children of the town on their knees before them. During a recent influenza epidemic in the town the Auatrians are said to have brutally rejected appeals from mothers for food for thoir sick children.

Removing Civil Population With the American Army in France, Nov. 1.-The Germans are now removing the civil population in advance of the retreat of their armies from French soil. A document captured by American soldiers contains instructions for rounding up the male population capable of bearing arms and all cattle. The document says that this has only been done in parpup to this time, because the passive resistance of the population had reduced the forces at the disposal of the local commandants. All division commanders are ordered hereafter to search each district systematically and to deliver under guard to the local commander all men between 14 and GO together .with all cattle. Conceatration ^;amps will he established near the headquarters tor the civilians who are to be re-moved. The cattle will be taken to the nearest slaughter, houses. The German order also provides that all horses must be talteu and concludes: ."The purpose in view can only he accompllsh'fed by^j^jproceediug witiiout the slightest c6nsi,deratioh." ' , German's Careful Retreat .With the American Army Northwest of Verdun, Nov. 1.-There have been many indications in the past tew days that the Germans intend to retire as slowly and a? strategically as possible from their present positions, especially west of the Mouse and possibly will draw further from non-German soil. The city of Metz will continue: to be the pivot of this retiring movement because of its strategic importance. Evidence of this intention on tho part of the enemy is especially recognizable on (he front of the American 2nd army in the Wouvre. Deserters from the German lines and prisoners corroborate this information'and say Che German command iS salving every bit of war material in the region, and transporting light and he^vy" guns into German territory east of ,\fet2. iiv-en reports of artillery liaving been sent from tlie front east of St. Quen-tin to the .M.elz and Vosges region.5 have been received and it is beiieveri the Germans liave been tearing up narrow guage railways oii some sectors. Tlio theory is tliat the Germans intend to hold stubbornly to this sector while swinging backward on the north, pivoting on Met-.!. The Gei-mans show great nervousness.

Apparently the enemy iias lost all power of resistance. Co\intless prisoners are being taken by the allies. Field Marshal Haig has again taken up offensive oi>erations on the front t>south of Valenciennes and reports his troops as making good progress early Friday. On the French front and on the American sectors, east and west of the Meuse, only the artillery has been active, East of the Piave all the allied armies are marching rapidly toward the Tagllamento in pursuit of the Austrians. The Livenza river, 15 miles east of the Piave and 18 miles from Tagllamento, has been crossed, while along tho lowlands north of the Adriatic the Italian drd army continues to progress. The formidabJe enemy defense around Monte Grappa has been broken and the Austrians are retiring hurriedly froni the region between the Brenta and the Piavo. Northeast of Monte Grappa the Italians have foreed their way through the Quero gorge and are moving up the Piave valley toward Beiluua, further enlarging Uio wedge betweea the Austrian armies in'Venetia and those in the mountains.
