ANTICIPATE BOCH[ REPLY TO W NOTE TONIGHT Geneva, Oct. 1!).-(By the Associated Press)-Germany's reply to President Wilson will be despatched this evening, according to information received here today from a diplomatic source. Although the German press is prohibited from discussing the matter, it is understood that Germany accepts President Wilson's conditions gener-ahy with one exception. She declares that the submarine warfare must continue until the war's end. She denies having infl'cted cruelties or carried out devastating measures beyond the scope of military necessity. To Justify Its Course Amsterdam, Oct. 19.-;Germania, according to a Berlin telegram, says Germany's reply to President Wilson will strongly protest against the accusations of cruelty and will suggest that it would not be a bad idea to propose an investigation of these cruelties. The German reply, the newspaper adds, further will .iustify the U-boat warfare as a reprisal against the enemy's starvation blockade.

Washington Oct. 19.-British pc:tro\s, participating In the alli*d advance In Belgium, are reported to have reached tho Holland frontier opposite Bruges, Gen. March was informed In today's early dispatches. ITALIANS VICTORIOUS Rome, Oct. 19.-Italian shock troops north of Lake Idro, on the northern Italian front, yesterday attacked the Austro-Hungarlan advanced posts and inflicted heavy losses on the enemy, the Italian war office announced today. Pivot on Fort Demons Headquarters hi France, Oct. 1(1.-(Reuter's).-The German retirement in Belgium and northern France is really going according to plan and the general movement ot the enemy has settled down to a sort ot panoramic procession. ..Wherever fighting take.s place north of the Scarpe river it is the result ot allied pressure on the retreating enemy, who is getting out as fast as he can, while the allies continue to exact their toll from the German in his hurried flight. It was like a good omen to hear last night that the German cavalry was trying to hold a line pivoting on Fort Demons to cover the eastwardly march of the German infantry. Close to Scheldt River With the Allied Fortes in Belgium, Oct. 10.-(Afternoon).-The town of Cherigne, Hasmie, Vred and Cattelet have been captured by the allied forces. The entire British and Belgian front was moving forward this morning. The Belgians were gaining steadily and the British in the north advancing in the face of considerable opposition, occupied the Herzaux-Mouscron railway, to the east and north of the French liberated towns o� Turcoing and Roubaix. Harlebeke has been cleared ot the enemy, but allied patrols pu.shing eastward have been fired upon. Moving out of Dessetghen and Marcke, which were occupied, the allies are advancing southeast from there. The enemy artillery is tiring heavily on the British in this sector of the front, where the allied troops are rapidly drawing close to the Scheldt river. Roubaix, Turcoing, Taken. With the Allied Armies in Belgium, Friday, Oct. 18.-(By the Associated Press.)-Lille Is fast being left behind by the advancing British fifth army. In spite of German posts established north of Roubaix and Turcoing, these rich manufacturing cities have been taken. The Germans blew up the bridges leading into Bruges and left strong rear guards there, but these forces were sacrificed by the enemy, while the main body of his troops moved eastward from the city and those near the coast hastened to escape. Today has been fine and clear and the Belgian airmen have again come into their own. The Belgian sky has been literally full of them and they have worked great havoc with bombs and bullets among the enemy forces fleeing through the gap between Bruges and the Dutch frontier. Strafe the Bottleneck. More cannon have been brought up and all last night and today they have been pumping shells into tho bottle neck through which the Germans are retreating. The number of Germans killed in this area since yesterday is, of course, undetermined, but from the amount of explosive projectiles, large and small, dropped on them, their losses must be tremendous. In addition, the French cavalry has been making dashes here and there and also has taken its toll. Huns Pay High Price. The German army is paying a high price tor its attempt to retain its hold on the coveted coast of Belgiuin. German military commanders, being unable to win any victories, now seem to have gone in for literature on an extensive scale. Today's reports include masses of captured documents which have fallen into the hands of the allied soldiers. They treat on all subjects, hut one; in all they contain a sub-current of despair. One says: Hun Morale Low. "I will take strongest action against men who absent themselves from their commands only to turn up again when danger is over." Count von Waldersee of the 59th reserve Infantry regiment, wrote that he knew his regiment was going to be attacked and warned his men that the attack must bo broken down. Incidentally, the assault referred to resulted in the smashing of that regiment. This officer ordered all auxiliary services to the assistance of the Infantry in the line "which needs all the support, imaginable." It would appear from many documents that the German army knows it has lost the war and is blue over the fact. Capturedf German Gasoline With the American Army Northwest of Verdun, Oct. 18.-(By the Associated Press).-Feeble counter-attacks were made by the Germans this morning east of tho Meuse river, but they were easily repulsed. There were lively artillery duels during the morning but little Infantry fighting. In a captured dugout in the territory recently taken by the Americans internal machines have been discovered operated 'by mercury thermometers, the bombs exploding when a jcertain temperature is reached. During the advance yesterday the, American troops captured 20,000 gallons, of gasoline.
