London, Oct. 18.-The German dream of dominating the Flanders coast has come to an end, the morning newspapers say, and they speak of Thursday as a memorable day In the war, pointing out the prominent part played by the British army and navy in the far-reaching successes gained. The Belgian coast ports, says the Dally Telegraph In referring to the German withdrawal from the channel coast, were symbols of the enemy's U-boat campaign and the threat to Great Britain. The evacuation of these places, it adds, is doubly sweeping atid morally ruinous for the authors of the war. The whole British nation, the Times says, will be glad it has been the privilege of the British troops to hand back Lille to Franoe. The Times adds: "Germany's belated abandonment of the practices of barbarism is the outcome of allied protests, but It cannot be forgotten that hundreds of towns and villages have been savagely wrecked. The wicked process of deportation must also cease and the unhappy people already carried off must be returned." London, Oct. 18.-Zeebrugge has been occupied. London. Oct. 18.-(Canadian Press Dispatch from Reuters Limited)-News received at Belgian headquarters indicates that Bruges has been evacuated. London, Oct. 18.-More than 4,000 prisoners were captured by Field Marshal Haig's forces yesterday in their advance in the Bohain-Le-Cateau region, the British wav office announced today. THURSDAY GREAT DAY FOR ALLIES PARIS, Oct. 18.-Lille, Douai, and Ostend. three great cities, have been delivered from the enemy. This Is the most glorious day for 'the allies since the battle of the Mnrne and If'fittingly terminated a wonderful battle of three months, which was opened by Gen. Mangin's victorious offensive on July 18. Mary cities have been liberated and hundreds of square mile* of territory retaken. The results have been splendid. But the victory In Belgium is not all. The British, south of Le Cateau, have broken into the German positions and now threaten the Hundinn line. The whole German defense aystem eastward to the Meuse Is In peril.' HUNDING LINE DEFENSES REACHED Ao the first result of forcing the Germans back to the Ghent-Tournai-Valcncienncs line during yesterday's fighting has been to occupy the enemy's defense before they have been able to reach them further south, without exaggeration It may be said that the prospects for the future are even more important than the actual results attained, splendid though they may be. ROAD TO BRUSSELS OPEN The road to Brussels Is open. According to latest advices the French and Belgian armies are advancing rapidly toward Bruges and Ghent. The capture of Ostend makes it possible to land reinforcements and throw powerful forces against the extreme right of the German army. Gen. von Arnlem'e army is no longer strong enough to sustain operations on the extended front from the trenches to the Duteh frontier. It is, therefore, reasonable to expect that its march across Belgium will be rapid and that King Albert will re-enter his capital earlier than was hoped. At the very moment the Flanders battle was won, another offensive was st.irted In the direction of Hlrson and Vervlnt, by Anglo-American and French forces. The object is to take the armies of the crown prince, under shelter of the Hundlng line, on the flank and condemn them to an early retreat toward the Ardennes across the front of the powerful allied right wing. BLOCKING THE BOTTLENECKS-* The way back to Germany lies through two bottleneck*, separated by the Ardennes-the one between Liege and Dinant and the other between Montmedy and Verdun. The latter is already partially blocked. While it may be admitted that the Germans are fighting wall �nd conducting their retreat with,great skill, military opinion here Is that the great military machine is irt danger of collapse at no very distant date.
