The t'otnl of 25,000 prisoners reported, however, is believed to be far less than the final count will show, as at last reports, prisoners were still being brought in. The cjean-up effected by Gen. Alien-by, which is pointed to here as the quickest and most complete of the en-tiro war, is counted as having definitely deprived the Turks of Palestine. In addition, besides the personnel of the army, the defeat has cost them an immense quantity of material. Take Turk Air Force So far as is known, the Turks on (his front had only four airplanes and these four have been captured.

Sunday's Fighting British Army Headquarters, Sept. 22.-Router's correspondent cablesi "The enemy,'who^has bee'n reinforced, put up a stubborn resistance this morning around Epehy. We carried many strong points, the most important of which was the web-like trench which is called the quadrateral, northwest of I-lolnon. The fighting is more of a hand-to-hand character than hitherto. In the present offensive we are opposed by the Alpine corps and two other divisions, besides a new division moved up from the reserve. "We captured Quennemont farm by two o'clock, but afterward withdrew from it. Our net gains for the day are satisfactory." Kaiser Still Boasting Amsterdam, Sept. 23. - "We will never let Frenchmen or Americans through here," was the promise given Emperor William by his troops when ho visited the Alsace-Lorraine front on Sept. 19 and 20, according to Karl Rosner's Sunday dispatch to the Lokal Anzeiger. The purpose of the visit was to thank the troops for bravely holding out and, according to a possibly significant remark by the emperor's chronicler, "at the same -time giving them inspiring words for the fresh' fighting on the threshold of which we are perhaps standing on the southwest of the empire." An American Raid With the American Army in France, Sept. 22. - (Reuter's).,- American troops raided tlie enemy lines in the neighborhood of Haumont village, in the centre of the new line across the St. Mihiel salient, last night.

They ponetratod the wood north of Ly Fontaine, capturing the fort and i village of Vendeull and pushed on to ' the Oise. , . French reconnoitering parties took prisoners north of the Aisne and in the Champagne, in the direction of the Butte du .Mesneil. German raids north of the Veslo and in the Vosges failed. v French Official Statement, Paris, Sept. 22.-The statement Issued at the war office tonight reads: "South of St. Quentin, we have enlarged our positions to tho east of Htnacourt and Ly Fontaine. We have '�'roached the western outskirts of Vendeull. "North of the Oise. three counter-attacks by the tJ^TSiapj were broken to The Day's War Summary SERBIAN and allied troops in central Macedonia have dealt the German and Bulgarian communication lines blows that are expected lo bring a complete readjustment of the enemy positions In the Macedonia theatres of operations. The important railroad lines from Uskub to Saloniki and from Gradsko to Prilep have been cut and the. enemy forces around Lake Doiran and north of Moiuistir ;ire, in danger of being outflanked and captured. German and Bulgarian reinforcements sent in to check the Serbian advance, toward Uskub have been forced to join in the retreat, of their comrades bv the Impetuous Serbians, who now have advanced 40 miles since September 15. Prisoners captured from Hie enemy arc being added as the progress northVvard continues and the quantity of war material is increasing. ON A FIFTY-MILE FRONT , The salient driven into the Bulgarian lines at Solalo has been widened until now the allies are advancing on u front of nearly 50 miles, stretching from east of Monastir to the. Vardar. When they readied the Vardar the Serbians were able' to cut the railroad running toward Saloniki and the only communicating line of the Bulgarians in tho region of Lake Doiran. On the western bank, the Serbians have pushed to the highest point in the mountain regldn In the upper part.of the t'erna bend and cut the railway from Gradsko. southeast of Uskub, to I'rilep. the base of the German army operating north and northeast of Monastir. By cutting the railway lines, the Serbians have placed two large enemy forces in great peril. The Bulgarians around Doiran might retire northeastward towaril the mountains in Bulgaria or north along the Vardar. British and Greek troops aro opposing them on the south. The Serbians could, by crossing in force, to the oast of the Vardar, cut. off the best means of retreat. Apparently the Germans around Prilep are in u worse position than the Bulgarians at Doiran. , FRENCH REACH THE OISE Around St. Quentin. on tho .western front, the operations are centred on tho towns or Vendeull and Vendbuil. The French, after capturing the town and fort of Vendeull, pushed on to the Oise river and as a result have driven a sharp salient into the German defenses between St. Quentin and Laon. Vendeull is one more of the distant outposts of Laon and is the most im-j portant point on the llindenburg Hue between St. Quentin and La Fere. Its capture by the- French places them on the west bank of the Oise and in a position to cross the Oise canal and carry out encircling of St. Quentin from the south and east. Vendhuil Is nine miles north-northwest of St. Quentin and on the Scheldt canal, two miles west of Lecatelet. Northwest and southwest of the town the BritiHh have captured German strong points and rapidly are closing in on it from three directions. TURK ARMIES SHATTERED Moving northward with -.-.urprlsing speed, the allied troops in Palestine seem to have dealt the Turks a blow which may shatter their power in that theatre of war. As far as reports reflect the situation, the Turks are completely defeated ant! the march of the British. French and Arabs toward the sea of Tiberias is virtually unopposed. The advance has carried the allies past the village of Nazareth and they are nearing the line of the ancient city of Tyre. To the north is Beirut, while to the northwest, 70 miles away is Damascus, Those t.wo cities are important centres in tin's region and their capture would mean the complete disorganization of the Turks over a wide area. SENSATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS PENDING Present operations in Palestine and Macedonia may have political results far outweighing the military objectives that may be gained. There may be some truth in persistent reports that Bulgaria and Turkey are ready to retire from the war and the dynastic situation in Bulgaria is said to be such that with King Ferdinand virtually retired from active administration, sensational developments may come at any time.

Police Barracks LINE TO MONTREAL Montreal, Sept. 22.-The Canadian Northern Railway inaugurated on Saturday the last link of the transcontinental system, when the section between Hawkesbury and Montreal was formally inspected by officers of the railway commission and declared readyi for. traffic.

Canadian Press Correspondent, t With the Canadian Forces in France, Sepl. 22.-The week on the Canadian front has been one of watchfulness, 1 marked by continued patrols and ar-| tlllery actions on both sides of the Canal du Nord, which lends itself to this style of fighting. One post has been taken and re-taken four times and the operations have netted us a number of prisoners and a machine gun; even the German raids resulting in prisoners to us. Shelling has been continuous with gas predominating in the German bombardments. Aerial activity, both by plane and balloon, has been incessant. Several German planes and balloons have fallen to our pilots. Yesterday a German balloon was cut loose by our artillery and drifted rapidly away at a great height. It is now confirmed, that (lie German pilots are using parachutes. Our artillery has dominated the situation, frequently offsetting the German batteries and causing many fires, as well as destroying observation points and bridges, of which there are many in this district. There is an evident intention on the part of the enemy to hold the east side of the canal to the end, as one of the remaining strong lines in their possession. The importance of the breach made in the llindenburg line is commented on by a well known German one of the disasters of the war and as being ominously significant. II not only embarass a large part of the defensive front, but proves that any line can be taken. There lies the hardest blow to German cotifidence. la this type of warfare the casualties are light. The morale of the enemy is certainly on the downgrade, the continued assaults of the allies making themselves felt in every port of the front. Y. M.C. A.
