Pleasing News to Parisians To-day Was
Report ot Retreat-, of Germans
Across Yser in Face of Stiff Can
nonading by Allies
'Paris. Oct. 31. 7.10 A. M.—Fnofli
cial announcement was made to-day
that the government will return to
Paris from Bordeaux on November 20
sad that. Parliament will meet on De
ceniber 15 to pass emergency la.v*.
Mettle i>v ilittle Paris appears to be
returning to more normal conditions.
The shops in the Avenue DeL'Opera.
which had their doors locked and the
windows whitewashed, have now been
reopened. Each day another restaurant
or bar on the boulevards or elsewhere
resumes business and the newspapers
whicih ceased to publish at the time of
the mobilization have begun to appear
again. The question of reopening the
Bourse is also discussed.
Reported Retreat of Germans
From the war arena in France and
Belgium the most pleasing news to
Parisians to-ityy was that tiling of the
retreat of the Germans across the Yser
in the face of a stiff' cannonading by
the allies. The announcement only a
few days ago that the Germans had
succeeded in crossing' to the left bank
of the Yser did more to depress the
spirits of the people here than any
development of the war for some time.
Their withdrawal now along with
the progress of the allies at other
C'nts, as officially announced, is taken
many as marking the first stages of
an impending victory.
The Hot Fighting at Ypres
Much interest is taken in the hot
.fighting in of Ypres. where
the allies have been gaining, because
of the great importance of the position
to the Germans. Ypres, according to
German military men, is the center of
the German position between Lille and
the sea. They have said that they
could not continue their advance
march unless assured of the possession
of it. If Ypres is conquered, the allies
will have the route opened as far as
the heights of Stomen, 22 mi'les south
east of Calis, is j. statement attributed
to them. However, the most important
position in the line of combat between
Nieuport, Dixmude and the Me se are
in the hands of the allies.
Praise for German Methods
General Pierre Cherfils, the military
critic, declares that a wounded French
officer with whom he talked yesterday
gave all praise to the German method
of conVbat. The present war, he says,
fitlso affirms the immense service avia
tion can render to' the French units.
The aeroplane has become an instru
ment of observation, not only useful,
but indispensable, according to General

OUR NEW FIELD GUN
Its Split Trail Makes It a Wonderfully
What is thought to be the biggest
single improvement made in the ar
tillery service in a decade is comprised
in Hie new field gun recently adopted
by the United States government. The
carriage of this gun has a double or
split trail, the word "trail" being used
to designate the long beam or prop
that supports the gun on the ground
at the rear. The old style single trail
prevented any great lowering of the
Htm breech and therefore limited the
angle to which the muzzle could be
With the >,plit trail the breech drops
iluivu between ilie halves and any cle-,
vation of tho muzzl? that is necessary
may be obtained. By means of a hand
Wheel the gun may be swung quickly
alid easily In a wide horizontal arc
without shifting the trail, which is
another great improvement over the
old style carriage. The gunners are
thoroughly shielded by steel plates only
two-tenths of an inch in thickness, but
of such strength and toughness that
they cannot be penetrated bv a steel
jacketed, needle nosed bullet fired from
a service rifle at a distince of 100
Vards. Even the gunner who sights
tic piece is not exposed. By a system
of mirrors and prisms the telescope
sigh zigzags upward and passes out
through a port in the shield a foot or
more aKpve the gunner's head.
; The projectile fired by this gun is
three inches in diameter and about one
fioot long, but contains enough explo

TI RKS COMMITTED FEARFUL
ERROR, SAYS CZAR DIPLOMAT
Home, Oct. 31. —The Russian am
bassador to Italy, A. Krupenski, in a
statement here to-day regarding the
Turkish attacks in the Black Sea said
that the action of Constantinople can
only be defined as "Turkish." He de
clared that the Turks had committed a
fearful error and that it would mark
the end of Turkey as a Kuropean state.
The Servian minister, L. Michaelo
vieli, declared that the Turkish inter
vention would 'ielp to a solution of long
pending epiestions such as that of the
Dardanelles. He said he did not believe
that the Balkans would be affected as
Turkey would be obliged to gather all
her forces against Russia.
