Advance by Canadian troops along a front of about 3500 with the capture of 619 wounded and un wounded Germans, is described in a communication issued today by the war office, covering the operations of November 13th by the Dominion soldiers at the British front. Canadian guns had been concentrating a heavy fire for several days on n strong line of German trenches, which became the the infantry offense at G o'clock. This objective was consolidated in its entirety, the statement says, the movement being virtually "swing forward on our left, pivoting on our right." The gain varied from about 200 yards on the right to nearly 1000 yards on the left. Troops at the left advanced 500 yards beyond the objective, the com- munique declares, and took a section of Grandcourt trench, which is consoli- dated successfully, but this unit was withdrawn later because the position formed too dangerous a salient. Canadian losses were comparatively light, with fewer casualties than were to be expected. '0 German Reports Berlin, via Sayville, Nov..

The men were unprepared and unprovided for the length of the tiro'cecdings, and ignorant of their moaning. "After preliminary inspection, tho authorities singled out the priests, professors and teachers, town clerks, customs officials, and mem- bers of the local food commission, old men and cripples, who were at once rejected. Selection from the remain- der -was made with care, al- though tho nrineinle unon which it was based is not apparent. In some coses men out of work were- sent back- home, while others who had been un- employed, as v.ell ;is students and farmers, were taken. Twelve hun- dred persons were retained, almost 20 to 25 ner cent of the able-bodied pop- ulation of the villages." Another report says: "Similar mea- sures have -been taken in other places.
