VLADIVOSTOK. Sept. 22. Serious
trouble has occurred at Omsk between
the Cabinet recently organized there
and other leaders.
An attempt was made under the
leadership or Minister of War Michaelov
to force a resignation of the Cabinet
The Duma -was then declared dismissed
by the administrative council -which
had been organized by Michaelov to
succeed the Cabinet.
The members of the Duma refused to
dissolve that body and declared the
administrative council abolished.
They released the ministers who had
been arrested and imprisoned Minister

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. Czecho-Slo-vak
authorities at Omsk, by placing a
strong military force in the city,
brought a quick end to the attempt of
Minister of War Michaelov to force a
resignation of the Cabinet. Official ad
vices received here today said Michae
lov had been ordered by the Czechs to
withdraw his demands for a new gov
ernment and the old governing board
has been reinstated.
By their prompt action. It is believed
here, the Czechs have prevented a se
rious split in the Siberian government.
Omsk, officials said, probably has been
placed under martial law pending resto
ration of order.
ARCHANGEL, Sept. 30. (By the As
sociated Press. ) American, British,
Russian and French troops today oc
cupy villages on both banks of the
Dvina River to a point 125 miles north
of Kotlas, in the government of Vol
ogda. Advance Covers 75 Miles.
They have advanced 75 miles in the
last two weeks and they now are about
375 miles southeast of Archangel. The
river is blocked further south by Bol
shevik mines and barges which have
been sunk in the channel.
LONDON, Oct. 2. Very heavy casual
ties were inflicted on the Bolshevik
troops by the entente forces when they
captured Ukhtinskia in Northern
European Russia, September 20, says
an official statement today. The town,
which had been intended as a base for
. Bolshevik operations in Karelia,, had
been fortified under German super
- vision.
Large captures of enemy troops have
been effected during the pursuit of the
Bolsheviki and the remaining enemy
forces are surrounded, virtually clear
ing Southern Karelia of enemy troops.
LONDON, Oct. 2. Seizure by the
British expedition of German mining
property and other development plants
in Spitzbergen, including a big wire
less installation, is reported by the Ex
press with the intimation that the work
of developing immensely rich iron and
coal deposits is proceeding.
Eight Submarines Defeated
The expedition met with considerable
difficulties, including encounters with
eight German submarines.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. The seizure
of Spitzbergen by the British is ex
pected here to prove of great assist
ance to the Russian government of the
north at Archangel
A short time ago an American engi
neer made an exhaustive examination
of the coal and other deposits in Spitz
bergen and it was largely due to his
report that the British expedition whose
success now is reported was undertaken.

broken. It is uncertain what lines the
enemy has in the rear. The British
advance threatens the German line of
retreat in the Oise Valley and also
from the massif of St. Gclain.
Big Retirement Likely.
In view of the loss by the Germans
of St. Quentin and the lines to the
north of that city, an enemy rc'.ire
ment on a fairly large scale seems
probable. Given fairly good weather, very big changes on the western
front may be seen before Winter.
FRANCE, Oct. 2. (By the Associated
Press, 10:30 A. M.) British forces,
breaking through the German line on
the Beaurevoirs-Wiancourt front and
capturing both the villages, created a
salient which aided materially in the
capture of St. Quentin by the French.
The capture of Beaurevoire cleared
up the situation in the Gouy salient to
the north.
The British fourth army took these
places, while the third army captured
Crevecoeur and Rumilly, south of Cam
brai, and the high ground east and
north of those villages.
Canadians Bitterly Opposed.
The Canadians had a hard day yes
terday north of Cambrai, the Germans
making a determined stand around the
burning city. -
The British third and fourth armies
took 1700 additional prisoners yester
day. PARIS, Oct. 2.Havas.) Cambrai
has been mined, bift the British have
fought around the town and thus foiled
the plans of the enemy. The Germans
decided on September 1 to burn Cam
brai and forced the civilian popula
tion to leave.

Thourout and Roulers to Courtrai.
British monitors are co-operating ac

on and near the coast.
LONDON. Oct 2. 5 P. M. (By the
Associated Press.) On the Belgian
front the Anglo-Belgian troops have
been subjected to violent counter at
tacks. Neither these nor the bad
weather, however, have stopped the ad
vance, although the combination has
had the result of slowing down the al
lied progress.
Itoche Fights Hard.
The Germans are making a deter
mined effort in Flanders as everywhere
else to stop the onrush. They realize
that if the allies push even five miles
further eastward on the Belgian front
Ostend will become untenable, while an
advance of 10 miles would jeopardize
the entire coast line.
PARIS. Oct. 2. The Germans are
moving their heavy artillery away from
the Belgian coast, according to reports
here today. The Belgian army, co
operating with the British army of
General Plumer and the French army
of General Degoutte, successfully re
newed today their heavy attacks on the
Flanders front.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. Further evi
dence of German preparations for
evacuating the Belgian seacoast reached
the State Department today in dis
patches saying hospitals, postoffices

the military government in the interior.
German civilian authorities are being
generally recalled and strict- regula
tions affecting the maritime district are
being enforced. Reserves in Belgium
which are to be sent to the front by
the Antwerp navy staff are said to be
preparing to leave Belgium.
