Oct 2.—An ultimatum to Oermany regarding the ruthless destruction ot cities and private property ln Northern France and Belgium is being urged on ths Allies and the United States and is under consideration. The burning of Cambrai and St, QuenUn and the devastation of one of the most populous regions of Europe as tho Oermans retreat, has aroused great Indignation and It was said in diplomatic circles today that Oermany would bs warned soon that lf she allows the work of destruction to continue severe reprisals will follow It is suggested that the cities of ths Rhine should be marked for destruction snd the Berlin government told that if for every French and Belgian ctty ruined without military reason a etty equally Important and valuable sentimentally and materially will be laid Waste. Since reprisals by bombardment have caused the Germans to discontinue to a great extent their air attacks on defenseless communities lt ls fslt here that e similar warning might be effective in bringing horns to the Oerman people the danger of retaliation for ruthless destruction of territory ■ now occupied by their troops. __C' 1 Gen.

COLUMBUS SOLDIER DEAD. ROULERS IN FUMES Menin Is Alao Fired by the Retreating Huns. By Assoelated Proas to The Review Paris. France, .Tuesday, Oct- I.— (Havas Agency)—The town of Menin sad Roulers, railway Junctions in Flanders, have been set on firs by the Germans ln face of the advancing Belgians. British and French troops. French guns now control the railway line running from Ostend, throughout from Roulers to Control. British monitors are cooperating actively in bombarding the German Une on snd near tbs coast are making headway toward Roulers and Menin. The Germans are preparing to evacuate the Lillie region. British armies around Cambrai are successfully fighting one of the fiercest battles of the war. General Bertholet is driving the enemy back between Rheims and the Aisne and General Gouard has reached Challerange, the Important railroad center at the western opening of Gsandpre Gap. St Quentln's fall shakes the whole German system. Its effect will be widespread. This will be accentuated by the strong push that Is being made ln the upper Oise valley. The Allies here are across the multiple waterways upon which the enemy qp largely based his defense. Before them lies the open country whieh is ideal for tanks. Under the circumstances the holding be-the Crown Prince's armies of tbeir position* on the Ailette and the Aisne ls oat of the question. Outflanked from the north and harried by General Mangin, who ls now along the Aisne as far as south of Craonne, the Crown Prince's armies are in a much graver position than were those of Generals Von Boehn and Von Hutler on the Marne and the Avre in July. The same danger threatens the armies opposing Gouy. Thus the first logical capture of St Quentin must be the retreat o£»the enemy from the Laonnois and Champagne sectors, if he wishes to escape disaster. But lt will not be enough that their line breaks up under the blows of the. Allies. The German retreat becomes more and more Imperative. The problem for General Ludendorff ls how to prevent lt front being converted into a disaster, which ls the usual result of retreating masses in e closely engaged struggle.

Germany's defenses between Cambrai and St. Quentin art crumbling under the determined blows of Marshal Foch, and tho time of the expected German withdrawal from France and Belgium, apparently is drawing appreciably nearer. Under the attacks of British, French and American troops the" Hindenburg defense system from the Scarpe to the Oise,. a distance of fifty miles, is being overrun. In the north the valuable net work; of railroads in Flanders rapidly it becoming useless and in the south the French are pressing vigorously their advance west and north of Rheims. . Northeast of St. Quentin the British have advanced more than five miles eastward from the front line of the Hindenburg positions. A salient, most dangerous to the enemy, has been driven in between St. Quentin and LeCatelet and the British are advancing through a, big gap in the enemy line across important roads and railways t6- ward La Cateau, one* of the most important traffic centers west oj the German border. Cambrai has not yet been occupied by the British but Field Marshal Haig has taken important heights south of the town and east of the Scheldt Canal, thus drawing closer the net about Cam-< brai. The French met with spirited resistance in entering St. Quen-4 tin but aasceeded in thfowing the enemy befond fhe'canal, whichi cuts through the eastern suburbs. North and south of the town,, the French have advanced further eastward. In Flanders "the Germans, arc reported to have set fire to the railway junctions of Roulers and Minin and to be removing their big guns from the Belgian coast around the submarine base of Ostend, which is being outflanked on the south. The Belgians are now five miles (from Thorout, while the British are across the Lys, seven miles from Lille, and are within seven miles of Court- rai. All these are important railway centers and Lille is the strongest German position north of Cambrai. Oeneral Bertholet speedily is driving the Germans bsck to their old lines in ths Rheims region. Further gains have been made between the Vesle and the Aisne and north of Rheians. Several miles more and ths French will bs ln ths open country north of Rheims and threatening the immediate communications of Laon. The French advance here and east of the Suippe is placing the Oermans between Rheims and the Suippe in a pocket from which they may have difficulty in wlthdarwing. In Champagne there has been lit tie change, but the French have rendered useless the railroad running through the Argonne forest from Challerange. This makes possible a further American movement on the eastern edge of the Argonne. North and west of Montfacon ln the' center of the American sector Waat ot ths Meuse, ths Americans again have moved forward. British troopsavvirtually surround the Important Turkish raflway center and base of Damascus. It Is reported the Turkish commander has asked for terms of surrender. By Assoelated Preas to Ths Rsvlew London. England, OeL I—Damascus, tha capital of Syria, was occupied by Oeneral Allenby's forcea on Tuesdsy morning, according to an official statement today by ths British war office. By Aaaoclated Praas to The Review London, England, OeL 2—Damascus hss fallen, the Evening News says lt learns. By Associated Praaa to Ths Revlsw London, England, Oct. 2—The Turkish commandant at Damascus has asked for terms' for the surrender of the elty to Oeneral Allenby's forces, Uie Manchester guardian reports. It ls expected that troops of the British army In Palestine will enter the city today. Damascus ls the Turkish capital ln Syria, and in PalesUne and its fall probably means the end of the Turkish resistance to Oeneral Al- lenby ln Palestine and Syria. The ancient elty is the Junction point ot railroads leading to the rort of Be- rtut and Aleppo, 180 miles northeast. Aleppo is ths most important Turkish baae ln this region of Asia Minor as it is a junction point of the railroads from Palestine and Mesopotamia. Damascus Is the capital of tbo Vilayet of Syria aad has a population of about 150,009. It M one of ths Holy dtias of the the paradises on earth. The capture of Damascus marks an advance of 130 miles by Oen. Al*. lenby's forces since Sept. 20, tha day he launched his victorious attack north of Jerusalem. In that time, the British have captured more than 50,000 prisoners, destroyed at least three Turkish armies and driv* en the enemy from Palestine and a great part of Syria. Americans Moving Forward. By Associated Press to Ths Review With the American Army lit France, Oct. 1—It was reported lata tonight that the Americans on tho front between the Meuse and tho Argonne, had again moved forward over the most hotly contested quarters of their advance. The siuation on the American! front along the BrieuHe-Binarvllla Une running from the Meuse through the Argonne remained virtually un* changed today from yesterday. It la still evident that the Oermans estimate fully the nature of the American effort and are hurrying up all available resources. This- Is true not only of the en< emy artillery and infantry but also of the air forces. During the day German airplanes began appearing over the American lines, the assumption being that these machines had been withdrawn from other fronts in an effort to minimize tbe Amort* can supremacy of the last few days. The weather conditions were far from favorable for the airmen so that llttls could be accomplished. If anything the American aviators with characteristic enterprise mora than held the upper hand. During the day the chief activity of the Americans was ln holding and consolidating their positions ln the face of heavy counter attacks, especially on the debatable ground north and west of Montfacaun. In the heavily wooded ground of the \r* gonne, west of the forest itself, they became to a merely bushwhacking tactics. This Is a form of warfare with their individual iniUatlve are second to none. Thus although, numerous small bodies of Germans filtered through the lines toward the American rear the Americana were easily able to take care of them. To what extent the Germans h«-a been compelled by the turn, of events to change their plans is shown by a battalion order Just captured. It saya tersely: "The troops are remanded that our present ls our Winter position." The regiment at the time the docu* ment was secured was ln the Una below Cambrai. There seems to have been a general juggling of the German forces. Numerous observers have reported a general movement, especially across the Meuse westward from Brteullea. Its direction ls along tbe river toward the nortb and then toward the apex of tha American line. Along the road running east and northeast from tne St. Quenln-Cambral yMffefj and the Arabs regard It aa (Continued ou Pago six) THE NEW HATS BEING 8HOWN AT "THE BON-TON HAT SHOPPE" -ARE IN ALL.
