These conferences were widely in

France is making suggestions regarding

That Asquith is losing his influence

openly stated that, though he is a ca

The present cabinet deadlock is over
the conscription issue. The pro-con

Paris, Oct. 20. W tho middle of tho
Champagne battlefield, my first impres
sion was that Judgment Day had come;
that 1 had been left behind to ruaiu the
disrupted earth alone.
As far as the eye could see, along tap
undulated stretch, it was a vast pitted
waste of chalk, with snags and an
nihilated forests sticking up gaunt aud
white, covered with dust against the
skyline, and with arms, legs and other
fragments of dead men lying stinking
like common garbage on a titanic dump.
This was the work of the French ar
tillery. Here tlernians hail beea. Here
many were still rotting.
Hell's furies seemed to iuve beea
forestalled and outdone.
For tiiree days, 1 was permitted to
wander over this ground recently won
by the I'Toncli.
Even Vegetation Killed,
I had a talk previous to my trip with
many nt tho wnr office, regarding tho
efficacy of the French shell fire but
even thus prepared and despite what I
hitherto hud unserved personally, i was
totally surprised by what 1 saw.
Over many square miles, practically
no vegetation was -left, F.ven the rab
bits and rats had not escaped.
Almost 3,000,000 shells had been
fired into this area in three days, dig
ging pits from five to 75 feet deep, the
