London, Sept. 3.~The British Independent Air Force In the last , twenty-four hours has droppe^ 15 tons of bombs on German milftaty works in the Rhine province. Three hangars were demolished and direct hits were obtained on Aianv others. (By J. V. B. Livesay, Canadian Press Correspondent). With the Canadian Forces, Sept. 3.-The boche has gone back across the Canal Du Nord, surrendering to us without further struggle, the DrocouVt-Queant line, just got out in time. The Ca'nadian corps was driving in his front and the Canadian artillery was waiting but the hour to lay down such a barrage along the canal as must have destroyed all its bridges and made evacuation impossible. This is not official, but there is small doubt of its truth. It Is the logic of the situation. Yesterday the tnemy fought like a wild cat to save his guns and transport. Last night our line was absolutely quiet. An airman this morning reported that after flying all across the 'enemy line, he Is convinced that there is not a boche west of the Canal 4}u Nord. He scouted the idea that he might be hiding in his dugouts. Lifts a Heavy Load. IC thi.s great news is confirmed i( must lift a load off tlie minds of onr commanders. No troops can �'ighi many fact that a number of crews of German howitzers captured were standing around their guns. Others complained I hat tliey had had nothing to eat tor four days: because of the great disorganizatiuu a( their rear. The lack of German shell tire was explained in many in.stanees when gunners capiured said they had no ammunition whatever. Many lime.s they declared they could have fired wltii open sights into lUe advancing Kritish but they had no shells and could not get any. BRITISH PATROL SINKS SUBMARINE London, Sept, 4.-The tidkina of a German submarine by a British submarine patrol is reported by the Central News. The British craft sighted the German and made for her at full speed firing two torpedoes, both of which took effect. The German Ll-boat sank within fifteen seconds. ITALIAN SUCCESS Rome,. Sept. 3.-Austro-Hungar-Ian detachments were driven back yesterday by the Italian advanced posts at St. Elvio and Tonale, on the'western end of the Austro-ltal-ian front, the War Office'announc-ed today.  Germans Will Be Foicecl to Evacuate Entire Northern France Front Without a Doubt. London, Sept. 4.-The progress of the tremendous eveut.s on the hattlefront-ln France is being followed by almost breatliless eagerness by tlio whole British nation. The most siguiticant feature of Tuesday's developments was that the expected German attempt to restore the position of the broken Drocoiirl-Qnoant line did not materialize. The the enemy to makes such an attempt apparently is due to the speed and energy witli'which Field Marshal Haig's armies were able to press tlie advauce on tlie retiring enemy. Infonned'" ' ob.scrYjevB, liowever, continue to .speculate on -wlieu and where the enemy will pull liiuiselE together. Disastrous as the bluw already has tieen to German prestige and seriously as the German position is endangered, experts hero are, not expressing anticipation of an early debacle and admit the probability of some defenses being organized liehind the enemy lines in an attempt to check the allied advance. Some prisoner.? talk confidentially ot the arrival ot a great reserve army under General Von Mack-ensen, who will turn the tables on the allied forces,' but obviously it is impossible here to tlirow any light on such reports. Whatever the future may hold, the actual situation is reg.irded as one of 'ex-traordinary promise for the allies and cont.Tining the possibility ot the compulsory abandonment of tlie entire northern German front, including the Flanders coast. While featuring the dramatic developments on the British front commentators do not neglect to emphasize the great importance of the operations on the southern end ot the battle line where the French and Americans are holding against large enemy forces and making progress.
