Smashing blows are being dealt the Gern\anB,.',on tho western front and the collapse of the present German defense' positions appears close at hand. In the Italian theatre hostilltiefl were to end today at 3. p.m., but up to that time the Italian and alllod forces continued to press the Austrlans on the Entire front, the advices indicate. On the north end of'the front in Prance Field Marshal Halg Monday morning la\inohed a new attack south ot the Scheldt in the region of Valenciennes. The operation benran succeRsfullv on a wide front and this vital sector of the German positionB Is in great peril. ^ The French army maintains Its pressure, but fighting activltjns less on The French army maintains Its pressure, but fighting activity is less than on Sunday. German artillery has been active on the Aisne front, probably protecting an enemy rotlrement which is inevitable in view o" tlio allies success north and east. Gen. Pershing's armies are pressing forward east and west ot the Meuse and tho GermaiLs apparently .iru jiot yet prepared to raaKc a stand. Stenay, a vital point in the GRrman lino along the JWcuse, is^^being encircled and i'ts tail would appear to be near, ARE NEAR SEDAN In the centre ot tlie sector west ot the Meuse the American 1st array has dVivQ^i forward to Sommautho, 13 miles south of Sedan, the most important German railway centre between Mezieres and Metz. It now appears that the Germans, who have held thr; line running westward/through the Champagne country, caniiot retreat southward but must be diverted northward through Belgium. This will add many weary miles to the length of tho journey which seemingly musjt. be begun at once. In^Belglum, the fall of Ghent is immineht, for the Belgians, French, British and Americans are rapidlymoving ahead. The Scheldt has been crossed at "Weldon, southwest of Ghent, while the Belgians are moving toward the Scheldt northeast ot the city. This advance, if continued, threatens the whole army in France, since its retreat eastward through Sedan and Mont-medy seems about cut off. Bast of the Meuse, the roads are crowded with tbe^retreating Germans, it is reported. Austria will join Bulgaria and Turkey this afternoon at three o'clock. Terms ot armiatide have iieen signed. In the meantime, Italian and allied forces have occupied Trpnt and have landed at Trieste. Udine, from which Ge,n. Cadorna was driven late in October, 1917, has bpen re-captured from the Austrlans. Belgrade, the Serbian capital, has been re-captured from the Austriats. This city was taken on December 2, 1914. WRECK OF GERMAN DREAMS Forty-five days after the allies launched their offensive along the Macedonian front, the Austrian and German troops were retreating across the Danube out ot Serbia, leaving behind them the wreck of German dreams of domination in tho east.
