THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 191 S THE LE7HBRIDGE DAJ1.Y HERALD FIVE Allies Continue to Smash Through Hindenburg Line All Along Front British Headquarters in France, Oct. 3.--Field Marshal Haig's forces are reported to have captured Ramlcourt, Gouy, Le Ga-telet and Sequehart. This has not been officially confirmed. More th�n 2,000 Germans have been taken prisoner today by the British. \ THREE MILE ADVANCE London, Oct. 3.-(3.35 p.m.).- The Germans have fallen back three miles In their retreat along the Lent-Armentleres line, it is reported this afternoon. SMASHING HINDY LINE With the French Armies In France, Oct. 3.-(2 p.m.)-Gen. Debeny's troops in the region of' St. Quentln yesterday began to imaah through the lines of the Hindenburg positions over the entire front of that army. These lines were two and a half miles deep in some places and were supported by several strongly organized woods. Tttey were defended by machine gun sections, which proved unable to check Gen. Debeny's advance. The breach made in the Hindenburg line was widened to the outskirts of Lesdlnes. Further north the French troops in conjunction with British forces took several small pieces of timber land In the face of vigorous resistance* MUST DEFEND LILLE Paris, Oct. 3.-While the enemy is throwing reserves relentlessly into the centre of the vast battalions In a desperate effort to stave off the inevitable hour of defeat, the allies continue to progress on the wings. Slowly but surely, the splendid advance of the allied forces under King Albert of Belgium has forced Gen. Ludcndorff to withdraw his troops. On this portion of the front, the position of the Germans is getting dangerous and they must find an effective way of defending Lille, which, with Met.', is the pivot of the whole German system in France. Now that the German first line in Belgium has been broken, the line of communication between Oateml and Thorout is in peril and with the Roulera-Mcnin railroad cut, it can be seen that the position of the enemy there is grave. The second line of railroad from Bruges to Courtrai is under shell fire. While this German army, the 4th. is thrust hack on its communication, the forces on Its right are a risky position near the sea at Nieuport. Those elements on the left of the 4th army are thrown back at some points south of the Lys river and will have difficulty in defending Lille. LE GATELET CAPTURED Latest news from the centre of the lines shows that ths enemy resistance there is giving evidence of failing. Lc Catelet has been taken in this sector. On the right, Gen. Berthelot is still driving the Germans away from the Rheims region and Gen. Gouraud is making slow progress In the Champagne. Everywhere the signs of battle indicate the approach of the critical phase. In addition to the general satisfaction over the situation in France, Paris is rejoicing over the news of the fall of Damascus. 1500 PRISONERS London, Oct. 3.- (3 p.m.).-Australian mounted troops operating in the region northeast of Damascus in Syria, on Wednesday, charged and captured a Turkish column. Fifteen hundred prisoners were taken and two guns and af.ainst the llourevoir-FottsommeK line, where tliu i.ti'itish have made, a sallcti!.

A New Attack With the llritlsh Annie* in France, Oct. :;.--i 11 a.m.)-The llriiisii launched I'rcHh /marks tills morning on a front of nearly six miles between Ke-quehart. and Hony. northeast, of Ht. f.jueniln. Again there has been heavy fighting along the iliiidenhiirg liti this area and more ground of the nios^ important nature has been gained. In Flanders, further substantial advances have been made and there has been extraordinarly heavy Hgliting, in which the Ilrltipli forced their way forward by sheer might. Berlin Official Berlin.

The failure of strong attacks upon new German lines both north and south of .St. Quentln is claimed. In moving from ArmcntlercH and Lens, the official statement says, the Germans occupied rearward positions cast of thnt;o towns. Yesterday the Ilritish bombarded the abandoned positions and then pushed on across the FlourlialxLa llassee-llulluch line. On the Flanders front, the repulse of attacks north of St.idon and north-�'ept and west of Routers Is reported. The text reads: "In Flanders, onnmy attacks north of Stndcn and northwest and west of Routers wore repulsed. We took 200 prisoners. In the evening, partial attacks by the enemy on both sides of the Ypres-Menin road failed. "Armentieres and I.ens were evacuated by us without fighting on Tuesday night. We occupied rearward positions east of both towns. In the course of the day, the enemy, after strong artillery preparation placed against the abandon'-d positions, fol-lowed over the Flcurbuis La I'.assee-Hulluch line.

The Canadian force boundaries coincide' with thoi.e of the, ISth German j army corps group commanded by Yon Albrecht. Since the commencement i of operations on Friday last this corps has employed !:', divisions. This in j eludes the TjKth division and the ISth | reserve division, one regiment of each on our northern and southern flanks respectively, and this morning's battle shows that this corps had nine divisions directly massed to check our attack, namely, remnants of the 12th division, reinforced by the :',r>tli division from the S"nsce river to the northern outskirts of Kpinoy, the 2�'nd division, reinforced by the 2:Uth division from the Sancourt.

In addition to these, extra marksmen and machine gun detachments, togetli. er with the machine gun and divisional artillery of the Tth cavalry and ISTtli divisions, probably being employed, although remnants of the infantry of these divisions have been withdrawn. Local attaeits by battalions and regiments of the above mentioned divisions have taken place and our artillery anil machine guns and bombing squadrons have been most active on innumerable turget3, curfpliecl by the enemy personnel. Our artillery all along unceasingly engages those marks, in many cases by direct fire over open sights. Hun Orders to Hold Regimental officers, -who have been through Ypres. the Somme and Passchendaele. agree that tho enemy has never fought more determinedly and we have taken from him today a great toll in killed and wounded.
