A Hard Fight British Front in France, Sept. 20.- Lempire was captured by the British after a hard fight. The enemy to the south of Viliers-Gulslain contested the advance fiercely and the losses to the defending forces here were tremendous. The British got through Vavi-celette farm, west vof �Vlllei-s-Guis]aiu,i without much trouble ,hut quickly ran into a German counter-attack. Hand-to-Hand The advance forces clashed in the open and a hand-to-hand struggle eil-sued with rifle and bayonet. The Oer-inans were completely sibashed and the ground was strewn with their dead. A further British advance' was assisted by a novel innovation In the way of machine gun barrages. Two hundred and fifty rapid flrers were brought up and concentrated. These guns opened a terrific fire during which one ot them fired 25,000 rounds of ammunition into ^the German de-fenses. The enemy was absolutely overwhelmed. Those upon whom it swept could lieither retreat nor advance and large numbers .'surrendered, but the Casualties were great. In one small place, for example, 300 dead later were found. In Gauche wood, the Germans had four British tanks, v^hlch they had previously captured. These tanks were used as machine gun fortresses and held up for hours before being taken. Later in the afternoon, the Germans opened a heavy attack between Havriu-court and Villers-Guislain, with the dth German division. This assault was directed not only^t the British,'who were engaged in x.esterday'a operations, hut against positions a little farther t6 the north, which thf British had taken in the past few days. The attack succeeded in rolling the British hack somewhat on the left^ hut this ground was quickly regained in a counter-attack and the Germans were everywhere repulsed with heavy Josses.
