group, recently under pressure, scor
ing-substantial advances. Oils again
were in the foreground. Mexican Pe
troleum adding twelve points to yes
terday's 25-point gain. Coppers and
rails also supplemented their many
substantial advances of the previous
'session and U. S. Steel, which opened
at a gain of one point on a sale of
5.000 shares, soon increased its ad
vantage. Shippings rallied one to
two points from their moderate re
versal, Ahe motor group alone dis
playing heaviness.
The ilnal session of the week on
the Stock Exchange was character
ized by another outburst of bullish
enthusiasm, although the energies cf
the financial community were mainly
directed toward the successful con
clusion of the Liberty laian. Ac

on five days of next week and the
War Department in postponing the
I call unUl further notice took the
! same steps as in the Camps Bee and
Humphreys cases.
General Snyder presented the
situation in Schuylkiil county very
forcibly, representing that there are
many men ill and that drafted n\en
would go front infected homes,
while lie said that coal production
was being menaced. Senator Pen
rose at once submitted the facts at
the War Department and when Mr.
Richards, one of the coal experts of
the country, and General Beary also
got into touch the military officials
decided to annul the movement.
Schedules for seventeen trains to
move the men had been prepared.
No time has been fixed for the move
ment to be undertaken.
In fourteen days the State Arsenal
force, often working at the rate of
twenty-two hours a day, has shipped

-Tournai and Valenciennes and al

miles along a front of more than

ish are approaching Chereng, less
than eight miles west of Tournai.
Several scores of villages have been
liberated. ,
Southeast of Cambrai the Allies
have made'a wide breach in the Ger
man lines along the lower Selle and
the Sarnbre canal and continue to
push eastward. The British and
French war offices report the cap
ture of more than 4,200 prisoners in
the fighting and over a score of vil

Foe Withdraws
On thenorth the British are with
in two miles of the Sambre canal at
C'hatillon. The French have taken
Andigny. forest and have reached
the canal on a front of aearly nine
miles south of .the bend in the Oise,
north if Xoyles, three miles east of
the railway junction of Guise.. The
allied wedge makes pockets t'o the
north and to the south. The Germans
are withdrawing from the southern
pocket with the French in close
pursuit. East of Retliel the French
have reached the Aisne on a wide
front and captured Ambly-Haut. ,
It has been learned from a resi
dent of Cambrai that German cavalry
officers were giving a ball there cele
brating the return of peace on the"!
night the city was taken. At the
middle of the dance, British infantry!
which had broken through the de- j
fenses to the west stormed into the
town and the German cavalry dan
dies had to run.
Lille is fast being left behind by j
the advancing Fifth British army, i
In spite of German posts established
north of Roubaix and Turcoing,
these rich manufacturing cities have
been taken. The Germans blew up
the bridges leading into Bruges and
left strong rear guards there, but
these forces were sacrificed by the
enemy while the main body of his
troops moved eastward from the
city and those near the coast hast
ened to escape.
Bclgiun Airmen Work Havoc'
Belgian airmen have worked great
.havoc among the enemy forces flee
ing through the gap between Bruges
and the Dutch frontier.
More cannon have been brought
up and all of Thursday night and
yesterday they have been pumping
shells into the bottle neck through
which the Germans are retreating.
The number of Germans killed in
this ara since yesterday Is believed
to be tremendous.
To-day's reports include masses of
captured documents which have
fallen into the hands of the Allied
soldiers. They treat of all subjects
but one in all they contain a sub
current or despair.
Waldersce Foresees Defeat
Count Von Waldersee, of the Fifty
ninth reserves infantry regiment,
wrote that he knew his regiment
was going to be attacked and warned
his men the attack must be broken
down. Incidentally, the assault re
fered to resulted in the smashing of
that regiment.
In many of the towns and localities
where the Allied troops have swept
past, celebrations over their deliver
ance from the Germans were carried
on all day to-day by the people. In

J. Bushman, well-to-do Gettysburg
garageman, whose body was "found
along the\ river bank at Lucknoxv
|Thursday morning with two bullet
: wounds in it.
Until this morning. detectives
here and at Gettysburg, gave cred
ence to the report that a man and
! woman left Gettysburg with the
! murdered man when he started on
the fatal trip to Harrisburg. It de
x eloped to-day. as the result of in
vestigation by Diaries Wilson, coun
jty detective at Gettysburg, that
; Bushman left Gettysburg an hour
,and a half later than was supposed,
after he had discharged the man and
woman, who were seen later riding
in his motor car before 7 o'clock.
The element of mystery now sur
rounds the identity of a man who is
said to have emerged from nmong a
group of men in the Gettysburg
Square, and requested Bushman to
take them on a trip. This was at
5.30 Wednesday evening. Former re
ports say lie left Gettysburg with
the man and woman at 7 o'cloyk. His
cur was seen at 8 o'clock and after,
parked in the square at Gettysburg.
The identity of the man who hail
ed Busliman, and the man and wom
an seen in his car, remain a mys
A report that Bushman had been
seen a few days previous to his
death with $2,700 in his possession,
gave rise yesterday to the opinion
in the mind of Detective Wilson that
robbery might lie the motive of the
crime. Twenty-rive dollars was found
in the possession of Bushman when
be was found, but detectives realize
that this amount might have been
left as a blind. His watch was gone.
Mrs. Bushman, wife of the dead
man. said she knew nothing of his
trip to Harrisburg, and could shed
no light on the identity of the mys
terious passengers who accompanied
hint. She said she knew of no 'af
fair" on the part of her husband
jwith any other woman. .Neither did
she know of any enemy of her hus
band. she said.
Undertaker Bender, of Gettysburg,
came to the city last night for Bush-

burg last night.

Positions Held Against Su

Gunboats Barred
Archangel, Northern European
Russia. Oct 19.—Allied forces on
the Dvina- have been withdrawn
slightly more than six miles in the
face of an attack by greatly superior
forces, which had been reinforced
from l'etrograii and apparently com
manded by competent officers. The
withdrawal was successful under a
severe bombardment.
At last reports, the Bolshevik re
inforcements were reported advanc
ing and the Allied forces were under
a hail of shrapnel shells and "pom
poms." Occasionally a six-incli shell
from a Bolshevik gunboat or a land
battery would strike.
The positions abandoned by the
Allies were held for a week against
greatly superior forces. The Allies
operating along the Dvina and Vega
rivers have been handicapped by a
fall of the water, which left boats
stuck on sa Ad bars and barred pro
gress by gunboats at critical times.
American Removal Wounded
One of the l'eats of the evacua
tion was the removal of the Amer
ican wounded from a hospital i#i the
zone of fire to a hospital bout. The
American doctor commanding the
vessel three times Slipped up the
river in the darkness through the
zone of tire before he succeeded in
getting the wounded axvay. The first
time,, the land forces were unable
to remove the wounded oxer the
rough and muddy ground and down
a cliff to the ani'-'orage. In the sec
ond attempt the bout remained all
night at a point agreed upon, but the
stretcher bearers were unable to
reach it and the vessel was forced
to move doxvn the stream at dawn
in order to escape the Holshexik
shells. The third attempt was suc
cessful and the removal xvas carried
out so quickly that the en qui y did
not tire a single shell during the

attempt to drix'e the Russian and
Allied troops from the Dwina he

xvork qf the nurses and aids at the
hospital is worthy of much com
mendation as the success of the
health bureau in handling the cases
sent there, was brought about by
their splendid co-operation.
It is estimated that about,3so new
cases were treated yesterday by phy
sicians, although complete reports
were not made. Health officials said
the situation is well under control

urged not to prescribe a large quan
tity as the health officials said they
