Thanks to the prodigious and unrelenting efforts of the armies of Gen. Debeny and Gen. Rawlinson, under the general direction of Gen. Fayolle, that fine soldier who now commands the group of armies in that sector, Itii a most resounding triumph. But it is not the only place where victory smiles Upon the allied army, TO EVACUATE LILLE REGION �elgian forces, strongly opposed, are making heaaway toward Roulers and Menfn. The Germans are preparing to evacuate the Lille region. British armies around Cambrai are successfully fighting one of the "fiercest battles-of the war. Gen. Berthelot is driving the enemy back Chi.ll** ��the*-� -':?tf^r SHAKES GERMAN DEFENSE St Quentin's fall shakes the whole German system. Its effect will be widespread. This will be accentuated by the strong push that .is being made In the upper Oise valley. The allies here are across the multiple waterways, upon which the enemy so largely based his defenses. Before them lies the open country which is ideal for tanks. 0I8A6TER FACES CROWN PRINCE Under the circumstances, the holding by the crown prince's armies of their positions on the Ailette and the Aisne-is out of the question, but-flanked from the north and harried by Gen. Mangin, .who is now along the Alsne as far south a* Cra'onne, the crown prince's armies are in a much graver position than were those of Generals von Boehm and v"on Hutier on the Marne and the Avre in July. The danger threatens the armies opposing Gen. Gouraud. Thus the first logical result of the capture of 8t. Quentin must be the retreat of the enemy from the Laon-noise and Champagne sector if he wishes to escape disaster. But it will not be enough that their liine breaks up under the blows of the allies. A -general German retreat becomes more and more imperative. The problem for Gem Ludendorff is how to prevent it from being converted Into a disaster, which Is the usual outcome of a retirement of masses closely engaged in a formidable struggle.

They -, ALLIES TO WARN CITY FOR CITY Plan Now Being Considered Following Burning of Cambrai Washington, Oct, 2.-An ultimatum to Germany regarding the ruthless destruction of cities and private .property .In .northern France and Belgium is being urged on the allies and is under consideration. The burning of Cambrai and St. Quentin and the devastation of one of the most populous regions of Europe in the German retreat has aroused great indignation and it was stated in political circles today that Germany would be warned soon that if she allowed the work of destruction to continue, severe reprisals will follow. It is suggested that the cities of the Rhine should be marked for destruction and the Berlin government told that for every French and Belgian city ruined without military reason a city equally important and valuable sentimentally and materially will be laid waste. An official dispatch from France today quotes trie Petit- Parlslen as follows: "Cambrai is? burning. This is the new crime accomplished by those great destroyers of life. Cambrai, the historical city with all her. memories of the past; Cambrai the modern, with all her industries, is going like Dinante. Cambrai. is at thfe present moment but an enormoiis fire.
