St. Quent'ln was completely cleared
nf the enemy Wednesday afternoon.
Immediately afterward, by special per
mission of the French general command
ing the t-eclor, I crossed this portion of
the Hindenburg line and traversed the
town, being, with my colleague, (lerard
Campbell, the first civilian to do so.
There did not remain a single one of
Its inhabitants to liberate. Of the
original population of 66,000 not an old
mani woman or child has been left. Hale
or" 8Jcki 0ung and old, they have been

There is perhaps another reason for
this forced evacuation wnich, however,
would but aggrevate the offence.
A general told us that, like Noyon, the
town was probably mined In many places
with time fuses to delay explosions for
as long as a week or more. Like Noyon,
St. Quentln will probably be left empty
for this reason. At any rate it Is empty
now dead, and but for the echoes of the
outer battlefield a silent solitude.
We had been warned to hurry
through our task, not to enter public
