Washington, Sept. 11.-System-tie, avacuatlon of the town of Oeual, one of the moit inoport-ant forward bates of the present Qerman line In France, is described In official advices reaching Washington today. A vast ' amount of war material is being taken out of the town, the report Bays, Including the. equipment of the arsenal there, which was the ' largest establishment of the kind ^Inlalnsd by the enemy in the northern rfglen of his advanced lines. BRITISH ADVANCE 'London, Sept. 11.-During last flight, the British line was slightly dvarice'd in the region of Verm-, and, northeast of St. Quentin, Piald Marshal Haig reported in his fflplajil^tiit^ment today. ; The'T^^fmahs made a counterattack Jn the region of Ecoiir-St., j .. : f hart ,yi�a|?ahiirp f ightlna alt*, at'' Qo6Wau ? ? ta^a to interview the government in ? A DAY'S WORK FOR THE CENSORS . A censor in Prance recently reported that ot two hundred letters he had ceiftored in one day, one hundred and-eighty contained' references to the  PESTROVERSUNK. 'London, Sept. 10.'-The admiralty announces that a torpedo boat destroyer was sunk Sunday as the result ot a collision during .a fog. There were no casualties.;,,.. Fort William, Ont., Sept. .10.-"Canada with her great natural resources will be able to adapt herself and adjust her industries very quickly after the war is over." This is what Baron Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway had to say as he stepped off the special train which arrived at the Union station this afternoon sharp on the stroke ot four o'clock. "Preparations are being made," said his lordship," to adjust industrie.s to a change in production in the event ot a cessation of hostll ities. The problem of the returned soldier is of course going to be a great one. Figuring on 300,000 men being over-,8eas if the war stopped tomorrow, it would take ten montlis to bring them all back if they could return at the rate ot 30,000 a month. Every man should be asked before he leaves France what lina of woi-k he wishes to take up when he gets back to.Can-ada and the government should ^york out a careful dGmobilization plan. All that skill and science can do should be done tor our wounded men. Some of them will go. to farms. I hop?^ maiiy will, but I. tear theyi- will not be^ very numerous."  - Lord Shaughnessy did not' care to have anything to say as to local co�-ditlbns or even about Dominion wide conditions affecting tiie affairs of the railway but he merely contenbs|9 himself by saying that tlie present was a thorough trip of inspection. "We are accumulating knowledge every mile we go," he said with a smile." We will remain in Fort William over night, proceed tomorrow to Winnipeg, and then go through to Victoria." Pleads for Unity. v Reverting to his former topic, Baron Shaughnessy continued: "I must make a plea ais I did the otlier day in Toronto for the unity ot Canada and Canadians. Canadians are made up of so many creeds, nationalities and races that they must come to a mutual co-operation in good will , to build up happy and prosperous communities; There must be a better undersianding between capital and labor. I hope all Industries wiir follow tlie example of the railways and come to an agreement with their employees." Lord Shaughnessy paid a warm tribute to the work of the Dominion railway board. Sach side, he went on, must try and get the maximum and not the minimum ot concessions. Speaking ot ocean traffic of the Canadian Pacific Railwayj, Lord Lord Shaughnessy said: "Our ocean tonnage is now almost as great as it was at the beginning of the war, although we have lost eieven or twelve ships. We are looking towards Siberia and .the new Russia as markets tor Canadian industrial pro-dncts." - With a clieery .wave of the hand the genial president of one  of the greatest railways of the world said that he might have something to say on his return which would deal perhaps with the observations gleaned from his western trip. / "I can tell you nothing ot western facilities for handling the grain crop," said Lord Shaughnessy with a laugh. Tunilng to Grant Hall, vice president and general manager ot western lines. Winnipeg, the president said: "Here is the man who can tell you all about that." General Superintendent C. Murphy, of Winnipeg, acted as Mr. Hall's spokesman and said: ""i'ou can .rsay that we have all the cars and all the rolling stock ready tor handlingrthe crop and we can take care, of the grain just as fast as the farmers can deliver it to their local elevators for shipment. One or two cara ot new wheat have already come In but very little as yet." In the party which left Toronto at 2:30 Monday afternoon, making the trip to the head ot the lak^s In twenty-five and a halt hours including stops were Baron Shaughnessy, president; R. B- Angus ot Montreal, ex-presUent of the Bank ot Montreal, one of the directors ot the roadj B. W.
