Sept. 3.-The bochc has gone i hack across the Canal Du Nord, surrendering to us without further struggle, the Drocout-t-Queant line. He jmt got out in time. The Canadian corps was driving in his front and the Canadian artillery was waiting but the hour o lay down such n 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 Bnvc his guns and transport. Last night on,' line was absolutely quiet. An airman this morning reported that after flying all across the enemy line, he is convinced that there is not n boche west of the Canal ton Nord. He scouted the idea that he might be hiding in hi* dugouts. Lifts a Heavy Load.
