M.—Re ports that the Germans had evacuated <Jstend andt were retreating toward Bruges and that the West Flanders army, from the vicinity of the coast foutli to Courtrai, was being hammered into a zigzag line by the combined ef forts of the British navy and the Brit ish, French and Belgian troops, seemed to coincide at so many points to-day that in the absence of claims of any advances from Berlin, opinion here was that the lighting among the canals of .North Belgium, which followed the German rush from Antwerp, had boon generally against the invaders. At any rate the Germans at one point have been driven back as far as Thourout and some dispatches say that their communications in the middle of West Flanders have been so disorgan ized lhat troop? from Ghent are march ing direct to Courtrai rather than ,;oin their comrades to the north who arc in danger of being cut off. Evacuation of Ostend Not Confirmed Jhe evacuation of Ostend was not confirmed this morning but from Berlin itself came a report that British ships ■were shelling that town while another dispatch said that the guns of the war vessels had destroyed the village of fiiype on the canal between Ostend and Bruges, where it is said the Germans have their headquarters. At Sluis, only a few miles northeast of Slype in 1340, a British fleet achieved a vic tory over the French. It is clear now that ships have been playing an important part in the war fare along the coast. The admirality officially announces that the monitors Sverne, Humbor and Mersey not only bombarded the Uermon position south of Ostend but landed detachments of marines with machine guns. It is re ported from other sources that eleven war vessels in all are taking part in the operations but what they are is not announced. Dodge Submarine Attacks Curiously enough the monitors re tain that title from "Lincoln's cheese box" of Civil war fame and so far, ap parently, they have been able to dodge submarine attacks, though as reported on Tuesday at least 12 torpedoes were discharged at them without one finding FRENCH SOLDIERS SORTING EQUIPMENTS FRENCH'SOLDIERS' SORTING OUT EQUIPMENT OF DEAD SOLDIERS i 9 its mark. How the German submarines got to Ostend is unknown but pre sumably they crept down the Dutch coast, submerging whenever sighted by a British patrol and then picked their way carefully through the British mine fields. With the fighting along the Belgian coast hardly more than 70 miles from Dover that area of hostilities neces sarily holds chief interest with the British public, though, according to last night's "Paris official cominunica j tion there were violent actions here and j there along more than a 70 mile front, j extending almost due north and south I from Nieuport to La Bassee. Every where the allies claimed to bo holding their positions. | Reinforcement of German Right Reinforcements for the German right | have been spoken of daily since Ostend | was taken and to-day comes a report that Austrian forces were being trans ferred from the Italian frontier for this | purpose. j Rumors that Kmperor William is seriously ill are filtering in here via ! Paris and this with a report that a Ger i man fleet is off Falsterbo, Sweden, are I among the usual crop of unconfirmed j narratives that London is discussing. From the east comes a claim of the j Austrians that they have retaken the j last point in the Carpathians held by the Russians and it was added that j there is "now no enemy on Hungarian I soil." A reiteration that the Germans | have been routed south of Warsaw was the gist of Petrograd's latest eomniuni- I cation. I The members of the American com ; mission charged with the duty of send | ing food to the starving Belgians are j due to meet in London to-day. BETHLF/HEM STEEL CO. GETS $25,000,000 FRENCH ORDER South Bethlehem, Pa., Oct. 22. — j The Bethlehem Steel Company, it was I stated yesterday by an employe, has ob- I taiued a contract from France to fur : nish the French army with 900 six ; inch field guns, to be delieverd in 18 • months.

M.—Tele ' graphing from Flushing Holland, the j "Daily Mail's" correspondent says: "The situation for the Germans in Belgium is becoming critical. This j (Wednesday) morning (hey were still holding Westende and bombarding j Nieuport, but they were under the fire of warships. The replies of the Ger man batteries were falling short of the "As a sequel to the allies' capture of '■ Boulers the German line has been bent I back to Thorout." Kaiser's Son-in-Law Missing London. Oct. 22, 3.10 A. M.—Anx j iety is felt in Brunswick as to the whereabouts of Dulse Krncst August, j the German Emperor's son-in-law.

SAY ALLIES' POSITIONS WITHSTAND ONSLAUGHTS Paris, Oct. 22, 6.55 A. M.—The la test dispatches from the battle front ia France and Belgium told just enough to make the public eager for more. The allies' positions having been every where maintained against the onslaughts •1' the enemy, to-day 'a official state ment of the war oflice was the object of hope on the part of the French. Meanwhile the fighting forces, be fore resuming the contest, sought anew to discover the weak spot in the lines of one another. The maxim of Na poleon's memorial, "Do not attack in the front the positions you can obtain by turning" is apparently a maneuver to which the Germans are adhering in what appears to be a supreme effort. In this battle of the north the allied armies, supported by an Knglish squad ron, have thus far successfully with stood repeated and fierce attacks of the enemy. / The fields of battle in Belgium, Flanders, Picardy, Champagne, Argon ne, Lorraine, Vosges and as far as Al sace, continue to be the scenes of com bats where the allies have made gains but a real decisive result is vet await ed. BO}]B-THROWING HELPED BY AMERICAN PETROLEUM London, Oct. 22.—Under the head ing, "America and German Bombs," the "Chronicle" prints an appeal to the United States to stop the sale of petroleum to Germany. The meaning of the caption is that American oil will bo used, if it reaches Germany, to pro pel bomb-dropping Zeppelins. The "Chronicle" savs: "It cannot be a comfortable thing to the American public to know that it is supplying Germany with instruments of barbarism. Germany is leaving no stone unturned to obtain American sup plies of petroleum, and there is little doubt that she is succeeding, to some extent, at least. "Let the American journalists ask the citizens of the United States whether they will tolerate longer the departure from their shores to Seandi navia and Holland of vessels laden with millions of gallons of oil destined for Germany.''

"Documents taken from prisoners who were captured during the fighting near Warsaw show that the Germans were confident of entering that city be tween the fifteenth and seventeenth of October. Siberian Regini9nts at Front "The Siberian .cgiments arriving at Warsaw were immediate'ly sent to the front, but not before they were warmly hailed by the population, which was greatly impressed by the martial ap pearance of these young soldiers. Dur ing their bayonet charges at night, in the forest of Motehidlovsk, the Siberi an soldiers took many prisoners belong ing to the Twenty-first German corps. '' The Seventeenth German corps and some of their reserve corps, who at tempted to push forward in the region between Blonie and iProuschkoff, suf fered severely. It was there that the Siberian troops, together with other Russian forces, inflicted terrible losses on the enemy. Many villages in the vicinity were taken and retaken in hand-to-hand fighting. Eight Days' Fight on the Vistula "In engagements near Kozienica the Caucasian regiments also gave proof of extraordinary courage.
