Makers of Canada's First and Foremost Phonograph ~ 4-fr�/aifford St, TORONTO, Ont. ci With the Allied''Armies in, FranCe' and Belgium, Tuesday, Nov. 5.-(By the Associated Pleas'.)-Fighting yesterday centred'argupd the walled to^wn of Le Quesnoy, and in and about' the grf(at Mormal forest, a stronghold of,the enemy. Early in the day the British pushed their lines forward oil either side of Le Qiiesnoy and it was plainly seen that its Jail was only a matter of a few hours. In 9rder to avoid fighting in, the place, the British, during the ifore-. noon, sent an airplane message to the defenders demanding thei^ surrender. This message was ignored and the battle continued. Later is was reported that two captured German officers, accompanied by two New Zealand officprs, entered Le Quesnoy and again demanded its capitulation, but the'garrisott refused. After that the British left a .small body of troops about the town anH pushed on, leaving it behind their linfes.' Vhen nightfall came, the Germans, realizing the helplessness of their .�sioiation, surrendered. " Abo.ut. lOOO; oCi enemy were taken;-i)rIsDners,;W\thin the neighborhood' forest of Afornial the British pushed forward rapidly in spite of many machine guns. By evening the British had worked half way through the woodistand thi^^mornlng continued their adyatace. - � 4'. ' The country south'6f>^e^orest, was admirable for the German defense, because the enemy ha;d the Sambre caiial "arid several 'small streams behind '^Ich he coaia make a stand. This �advantage wa"* partially offset by the presence ihroughout the re glon of hundreds of farm fences, which offered excellent screens for bripging up pontbt^i^ bridges. These pontoons were worked, forward close to the line on Sunday so that they were ready for Instant use when the advance began. The town of Cattilon, on the west-em side of the Sambre canal, offered considerable resistance, hut the place \?as captured at an early hour. With this town as a foothold, the British got some pontoons across the .canal. Enemy Resistance Wieakened. As the day wore pa the enemy re sistance weal^ened- along .the Mormal forest sector. \ The Germans had not expected an attack o]^ .such, a big scale and were not prepared to withstand it. The fighting due east of Valenciennes was not heavy. , ;p2nemy forces began on Sunday night to withdraw toward the Annelle river and the British troops pushed forward rapidly over the eva'cuated territory. South of. Rombles, however, German machine gunners .resisted strongly, especially about the high ground east of Se-bourg, where the British gained a foot-ing, but were driven back by a~ desperate counter-attack...
