After about two months of th_- mu i
of i-landers, in "poor little Biiftiuni"
where we had "beaucoup" shell-, and
several bombings, we have had a -o

Now we are back in the thick of it

were greeted this morning just at
daylight with about ten or twelve
shells. They were all close by, shrap
nels, and burst over the village; some
of it rattled on the roof, but no dam
age was done—that is to say no one
was killed or wounded.
To do material damage would be
impossible, f>| it is literally true
when t say there is not a whole house
standing in the town.
1 saw desolation and d< struction in
Belgium; it was as nothing compared
with the country I came through yes
terday. For miles and mile* not a
house standing, cities and towns lev

honey-combed with dug-outs and old
trenches, trees, lar^e and small, prac
tically all dead. some of them twisted
off by shells, others had been killed
bv the Huns by hacking about the
trunks: other vegetation had been in
jured by gas. Barbed wire entang
lements there were for miles. Along
the roadaide were crosses innumera
ble which marked the graves of
friends and Huns alike, with here
and there a Boche h-tmet stink on an
old rifle barrel which served as a

There was no intimation tonight of

realization of what has happened to
their military machine and the war
lord'* dream of power, so as to avoid
a complete collapse of government.
Dipl omatic observers point out that
the President is at liberty with per
fect consistency to make no response
at this time, but to await develop

the promises of the Ge-mans not to
torpedo passenger sh'ps, their im
plied promise to work no more des

Belgium and Prance than military ne

further development of the political

No one believes that an immediate

The opinion most generally held is
that if Mr. Wilson decides to make a
reply, and if the entente governments
agree, the only step possible at this
time would be to sanction preliminary
arrangvments to be dictated by Gen.
Poc\ in the field for withdrawal of
the Germans without further fight

would be contingent upon guarantees j
of continued supremancy of the ric

No Certainty Yet as
To Size of The Loan.
Washington. Oct. 21.—After read
ing a nunl*r erf late reports on the
outcome of the fourth liberty loan
campaign, which closed Saturday,
treasury oOcials declared tonight
there i* little certainty at this time
either of the total volume of the anS
senptions or the number of subecrib
er». They still felt no doubt that the
loan had been overscribed but ex
plained that many earlier messages
appeared too optimistic in the light
of actual figures now being compiled
by every bank and local committee
over the country.
There was good ground, however,
for the estimate that 22.000.000 or
more individuals had subscribed to
the greatest war lean ever floated by
any government. The fart that many
of these represented lamp subscrip
tions by corporation* which later
would re-ell bonds to their employ*
led to the belief that the number of
actual bondholders would be coaeid
