Uhcnt, Belgium, Sunday, Nov. 17.- Tho last .stragglers of tlin Gorman forces are passing out of Brifssels this evening. It is a sad cavalcade of .sullen, depressed men, filing out along the road Heading for Louvain and Liege. Unloads is calm. The population is refraining from any manifestations beyond disdainfully shouting to the departing soldiers "on to Berlin." The soldiers do not respond, wordy smiling sadly. The correspondent, who went, to UniHscls Friday, returned here tonight. In Drussels he received a great ovation from the inhabitants, which was somewhat embarrassing as desultory rifle and machine gun firing was still going on. lie was challenged several times by members of the soldiers' and workmen's council for his passports. Reaching the outskirts of the city at 4 o'clock in the. afternoon, the correspondent walked to tho north station where tho soldiers' committee was holding n meeting. Suddenly shots �n-ore heard in the direction of the Place- Droueker.-t and the crowds Immediately sought refuge indoors. Was Unmolested. The correspondent donned civilian ilress and toured tho city unmolested. !Many houses were decorated, but Mayor Lumonuier had ordered (hat no flags he raised until one was floating from the city hall. . Food For Five Weeks There is sufficient .fond in Belgium for. five weeks, according to K erd'.iiund Baetaus, of llie American commission for relief in Belgium, lie said, however, that there was need for lice* and suggested that supplies be unloaded at. Antwerp Instdid of Rotterdam. Coal Is very scarce and is selling at 250 francs a ton. Oiotjiing is also lacking. While tho people remained calm on Sunday, waiting until the last German leaves, Belgian cavalry are 10 miles down the Ghent road watching for the signal to enter the city. It is probable that Brussels will be free of tho enemy at dawn tomorrow. Can't Fraternize The Germans made numerous attempts to fratornlzo with the Belgian Socialists, but Secretary lluinsbrouck of llie Socialist headquarters refused to meet representatives of the soldiers', and workmen's council. He, said: "Tell our king, tell America, tell the vcholo world that wo ubsolutoly will have no ebnlaet with those people. We at no time consult our enemies as to the future. We d not know tho spirit of tho worklngmcii, but wo do know the spirit of tin; soldiers, "Dolgium has recovered promptly Ond there is no clanger of Bolshevik-, Ism here." German soldiers are going about �with huge bags of loot from the injur-termantcr's department, selling shoes and blankets at any price obtainable. Good boots wero sold for ton marks. Senator Spever said the VipIokUmv ,,f the German officers impressed hint as cowardly. Most of them nud luhurci Holland or escaped iu citizens' clothing to Berlin. Fire In Brussels.

Tho present movement will also include a large n.uiiiber of wives and dependents of soldiers serving overseas. The place is 40 miles east of here. Tim crime was committed last Friday afternoon when McKay went to make a seizure at the farm of "Oov-tor" Gervais. The victim was shot from ambush by two men who are believed to lie evaders of military service and are said to have come to the district about the time the Military Service act was put into force, from Montreal. Discovery of the crime was made yesterday when Sergt. Kistruck of the provincial police was sent out to search for Mr. McKay. Sergt. Kistruck was not long in discovering the. body. Both body and auto had been thrown over, evidently in the hope of conveying the impression that Mr. McKay had run over the river bank in (lie darkness. Sergt. Kistruck located a boy who said that there are live bullet wounds in the body and that he was forced to nssist in throwing the body into the river. Well Fortified Further investigation In the vicinity disclosed a most startling condition of affairs. Sergt. Kistruck found an elaborate system of trenches whicli had evidently been constructed for the purpose of defense and resembled wbat might be found on a modern battlefield. There was a number of dugouts which are believed to command strategic points in the locality and it is from one of these that Mr. McKay was shot. One of these dugouts Is In the stoap :doplt�; embankment of the river and has loolcouts that command the country for a'considerable distance. Investigation In the neighborhood disclosed that the people of Steep Creek have been living in terror of three men, one of whom is alleged to lie "Dot lor" .lervias, who came to the Submarines Surrendered . aide in move, the American.- and Bri-1 material was finite Inferior to the itish are combatting great odds.

At the beginning of this year, the Gorman navy consisted only of dread-naughts and battleships of tho kaiser type ami .some few cruisers. All tip> ships which Von Tirpitz had constructed from LSlhS to 1916 at a cost of Innumerable millions, bud heen destroyed and the submarines that had bouti constructed had proved unuble to fight against British warships. Admiral von Capelle, during- his period 11.4 head of ths) navy, says tho writer, constructed T�ry few submarines ot tho largo type, but in official quarters U was stated that Germany possessed an enormous number, of submarines and that tho losses wero virtually nil. Many Subs Destroyed. That was not true, the writer admits. , In 1917, ho states, S3 submarines were constructed, while 66 worn destroyed. In April, 1�17, Germany had lu'd submarines and in October 110. In t'obruary, 1918, she had 13*: and in Juno of tho same year, 113, according to the captain's figures. Only a small percentage of .their submarines were actively operating at any given time, Capt. Perslus declares, in January. 1917, for Instance, whon conditions wore fayorablo for submarine work, only IT per cent were active wnlle 30 per cent were tn harbor. 38 per cent under repairs uud M per cent "Incapacitated."
