Australian units have been co-operating with the Americans. Near the north and soutth portals of the tuinw) through which the St. Quant in canal runs the fighting ban been especially vigorous. It was at tiiis point that the Americans passed over the canal. Thousands of Germans poured into the struggle and have been heavily engaged. The St. Quentin canal tuunol runs for more than five kilometres under a mountain. The canal was held by large' numbers of Germans, who were on board electrically lighted barges. There are wide tow paths and galleries leading off from each aide of the canal and in them the entire garrison had quarters. This section is probably one of the strongest parts of the entire HIn-denburg 3ystem and the Americans have found it to be literally lined with tunnels, dugouts and galleries which require a great deal of mopping up. Large numbers of Germans have keen killed, but, before they were silenced, the enemy gassers worked their gassing guns with the greatest vigor. When the allies swept past the southern end of the tunnel, the Germans remained in hiding until the Americans got a little way past and then poured up and plunged into the fight. They were engaged first by the Americans and then by the Australians. The tunne'l mouth was choked with dead. This action began late last evening and continued until S o'clock this morning with unabated Intensity. American units are now holding trenches in the Hindonburg line, from which the Germans have tried to force tliem. Everywhere there has been fighting of the hardest character. Reports just received indicate that north of Bellicourt, there was very much heavy fighting and the Americans, in spite of great pressure against them, have held their positions in not a few cases to the last man. They fell fighting rather than give up a single inch of ground to the desperately fighting Germans, who seem to have been hurled against them regardless of the cost. As a result of the fighting up to this the Americans are holding lines forming a salient which, bulges slightly westward between (iouy and Joncourt, but this, at last reports, was being gradually elimiu-atotl.

(Special te the Ifc'raM) Fernie, Oct. 1.-The coroner's inquest into the death of Wm. Allen, which took place on the evening of the 18th nit., in the residence of John Locke, under peculiai circumstances, was concluded last night and the jury brought in a verdict of suicide at one-fifteen o'clock this morning. Many witnesses were examined, some of them being recalled, and the examination was a searching one, leaving no doubts in the minds of Che jury as to how the death occurred. There was exhibited a morbid curiosity regarding the case and many women were present at each sitting, many of them standing through long hours ia order to hear all the details of the case. One lady brought her knitting and improved the time by knitting socks for the soldiers. Others, younger, passed the time chewing gum, aud at one time a very audible smile passed over the crowd like a ripple on still water, when something was said which, by a stretch of imagination, could be distorted Into humor. bo wounded, but not before he had made his new dispositions. It was Impossible to take and consolidate Bloeotirt, which lies in front o� our fourth division, because the village is dominated by the ridge further south. Neverlheess, it. was reported that five men of a British Columbia highland battalion went into the village and, unaided, secured the surrender of the entire garrison of 200 Bodies, whom they marched back into our own lines. On our left, the 1st Canadian division met and drove back a series of enemy counter-attacks when individual units greatly distinguished themselves. The colonel of one famous battalion was killed while loading his men. More than ever the people of Canada have reason to he proud of their sons and brothers in arms. B With the Canadian Forces at the Front, Oct. 1.-(By J. F. B. Livesay.) - From their positions in St. Olio and Neuville-St. Remy, the Canadians can look down upon tho great city of Cam-hrai. This city is especially dear to the French, heart and tho strategy c> the allies has been to envelop it without hurt and thus force tho Boone to evacuate it. The stiffness of his defense of the city recalled the light he put up behind the Drocourt-Quoant switch line early in September before he fell back across the Canal du Nord. He fought furiously to enable him to evacuate his guns and stores. Tho fighting of the past three days has been full of incidents. A Canadian brigadier not satisfied with the paeltion of the ticklish situation on our right he was receiving from his battalion commanders, rode  forward on horseback for a personal front-limS] inspection.! He had the bad luck to CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS IN WAR In the last five months Christian Scientists, without outside appeal, have raised and spent for war relief over $1,000,000. They have given no entertainments for raising money, nor made house to house canvasses, but have merely let it be known among themselves that money was needed, and it began to flow in in a steady stream. So ono was urged to contribute, or advised that it was a duty to give. Their men have gone into the ranks of the fighters and their women into all manner of war work, giving their homos, time and money freely and without ostentation, following literally the scriptural command: "Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth." Until they had an organization they worked with the Red Cross, the Y.M.C.A., the army and navy leagues and other bodies, bought bonds, served id canteens and performed varied service otherwise. m Bob Lopg 'cut UNION MADE OVERALLS SHIRTS & GLOVES Jfotowri'fronvCDa&LtoCoxvtfc R.G.LONO feCO.
