The tranapnrt arrived iff Lamnos, Greece, on the 17th of April, 1916, and we were told there that we were In for an awful time.

You can Imagine what It waa like. On reaching the ahore we deployed and wont forward on the run to the helter of that famous bill, called Acha Uaba, on the top of which the Turks had their baterlos. Aftor ar riving snfnly nt the bottom of the hill, a roll waa culled, and out of 3200 men, only 247 answered, as! their name was called.

It seems to have stiffened In stead throughout the west front, and a big offensive is mentioned In the dispatches from the British front to day. The reply of the people to Germany seems to summarize In that the Huns must surrender unconditionally and restore the lauds they have dev astated during the past four years. " The following paragraphs are tak en from the most recent dispatches from the front: Washington, Oct. 23. Germany's new note to President Wilson in Of ficial text was delivered to Secretary Lansing at 10 o'clock this morning by r eraertcK ueaerlln, charge of the Swiss Legation. It may be stated that there is noth ing In the communication to alter the decision of the president that he will not propose an armistice to the allies before the Germans evacuate all oc cupied f3rrltory. The work on the statement cov ering the President's action on the note has been completed and will be released tonight at 9 o'clock. With the American Forces North west of .Verdun, Oct. 23. Unless they are saved by their plea for peace the Germans will be subjected to steady hammering along the greater part of the western front during the winter. Indicationa are that it is not in tended to give them a breathing spell. British troops again are storming the German defenses west of Mau beuge. The new attack, launched early today between Solesmes and Le Cateau, 1b reported to be making good progress. Field Marshall Haig is increasing also the menace to Valenciennes through the western suburbs of which the British are fighting. North of Valenceinnes the city has been out flanked by the capture of Bduai. It is not probable that the Germans will be able to hold out In Valenciennes much longer, and once the Scheldt is crossed the British will be in position to threaten seriously both Mons and Maubeuge. Between LeCateau and Solesmes the British are on high ground eaat of the Selle river, and It is from this favorable position today'B attack was begun. The German resistance here has been bitter, as the line Is vital to the security of the German defenses over a wide front to the south and southeast. Washington, Oct. 23. Any reply President Wilson may make to Berlin will in all probability be governed by the Supreme War Council of Gen erals In France, and the terms on which the Teutons must give up in vaded lands is tbe anly question like ly to be discussed.
