This lius s^cmtd to tie characteristic of the rucent British successes. From the moment when the front line advanced at dawn yesterday, the great forward movement began to extend miles in depth. The irrebtatlble momentum of the well ordered masses streaming along the roads seemed to carry a pressure which the 1 Germans coluld not hope to stem once the lino was breached. It was not surprising, therefore, to hear that all objectives of the day were obtained which meant that the British had gone forward to an extreme depth of about five miles through a most formidable and intricate network of defense?. So remarkable was the British progress 1hat. not only field batteries, but heavy SO-poundors were brought up to the. western fringe of the Bourlon wood and were raking them before the enemy had completed the' withdrawal of his rearguard from the eastern edge. Converging tactics worked admirably and in several places strong bodies of Germans were reported "facing the wrong way," which meant that the British work-jrt around behind them unnoticed. Tanks Play Big Part Tanks played a very important part in cleaning out the machine gun infested thickets of the wood and in putting down an attempt at street Righting amid the ruins of Bourlon Mage. Canadians Were First The Canadians who -were the first to cross the Canal du Nord, between Moeuvres and Marcoing had expected very hoavy fighting and were much disgusted at meeting only slight resistance, as they swarmed from the east to the west bank of the canal, which was in some places 60 feet MAJESTIC LAST APPEARANCE TONIGHT AT 8,30 of Dr. ZELL HUNT The Mental Marvel Prices 25c, 35c, 50c 1W Bob loi?g UNION MADE .

Yesterday was the worst day Germany probably has experienced since the outbreak of the war and the opinion here is that the Germans are getting near the last ditch. The vigorous onslaught of tho British has brought them witjhin two miles of Cambrai, one of the vital points of the German front and comes rapidly after the victories gained by Generals Gourard, Liggett and Cameron on both sides of the Argonne. Apparently, Marshal Foch has got tho enemy in a position on the west where he can do what he likes with him. Passchendaele Outflanked. London, Sept. 28.- (By Associated Press.)-The British and Belgians have taken the town of Poelcapelle and have advanced on the whole front for a distance of from two to three miles."- The allies have outflanked Passchendaele ridge on the north and are advancing toward Roulers.

Sept. 28.- (10:10a. m.)-(By Associated' Press.)-High explosive shells from the American big guns are now reaching for beyond the German lines, fires at Brieulles and at other points are attributed to the work of the American gunners.

On four important sectors from Verdun to the north, the allied troops arc fighting their way into and beyond the Hindenbiirg line. Smashing attacks are being j delivered by the British and Belgians north of Ypres; by the British and Americans before Cambrai; by the French north of the Aisne and by the French and Americans befopfe Cambrai; by the French north of the Alsn'e and by the French and Americans In Champagne to the east On all fronts the allies arc meeting-with success. Cdmhrui, it would appear, is about to fall, the British having captured the important height or Bourlon wood and are reported beyond Fontain-Notre Dame ami Sailly, within one and three-quarter miles of Cambrai. Southwest of Cambrai, the British are fighting toward the important Scheldt canal at. Cantaign. CAMBRAI DUE TO FALL SOON Field Marshal Baig'.s thrust, north of Cambrai already has progressed more than three miles. The British have cut the highroad between Cambrai and Douai and have the railroad between the two cities dominated by their guns. The fall of Cambrai, military experts believe, would result in a German withdrawal from Douai and St. Quentin, which possibly would lead to a, retirement to. the French frontier. NEW ATTACK STARTS IN BELGIUM On the. north, the Belgian and British armies are fighting through the Hindenhurg defense on a front, of more than 10 miles from Ypres to north of Dixmude. At some points, the attack began Saturday morning, already has resulted In an advance of more than two and a half miles. The allied troops have penetrated important positions of the Houtholst forest.

The French havejnoved their line forward .west of the Argonne forest and captured . important positions on their western flank. East of the Argonne the Germans are fighting desperately to hang on to Brunhilde positions, but the Americans are progressing at, several points.
