A captured officer 'of the JVussian

morale lit Germany was bad ami that
the civilians were raising n outcry as
to why the war was being proWnged.
Throughout the country he said there
was talk of an end to the Hnhenzollcrru
and the establishment of a republic.
The morale in his own division ho
characterized as bad. He further wild
that the authorities had called up the
190 class in Iirunswick. Germany was
suffering from a serious shortage of
horse.-s and there was a great scarcity
of canvas as a result of which the
manufacture oT tents bad virtually

Another officer prisoner had charge
of the guard in a German prison camp.
There were Iiritish French and Hus-

fire marked the night in the region to
the east and north of Y'pres.
The Iiritish big guns have never
ceased to pour a devastating fire into
the German positions along the Flan-

ed vigorously. Last night the Germans
directed a heavy lire against the Hector
between the Ypres-Menln highway and
the Ypres-Roulera railway and also con
centrated on Abraham "heights.
Shortly before dark last evening the
enemy launched a counter attack
against tho British to the south of

the French but this was repulsed with
much gun and rifle fire.

MILITANT SINN FEINKRS CON-
STANTLY GROWING HOLDER
' AND IIRITAIN INKASY.
London Oct. 23. The seriousness of
the situation in Ireland is insisted upon
by a. correspondent of the Laily Mail
who has been following the Sinn Fein
doings for several weeks. He saya the
wholo of west Ireland la on the verge
of an armed rebellion and continues:
'The young priests in Prof de Valo-
ra'a train have awakened to the danger
of the spark they helped to kindle and
now are trying to quench it but I fear
it has gone too far. The militant Sinn
Felners are at the top of their stride.
They have been allowed to carry the
program to a pitch which it seems al-
most hopeless to break by pacific means.
"The Sinn Felners are sublimely con-
fident and the way that Tuesday's de-
bate in parliament shows plainly the
government Is afraid of them."
The correspondent adds that there is
a ray of hope in that the Sinn Fein
congress which opens in Dublin today
is checking the militant section.
Conscription Is Hated.
"There Is not the slightest doubt." ho
continues "that the rock around which
the troubled waters are now swirling is
the question of conscription. If it were
announced definitely by the government
that no endeavor would be made to
force conscription on Ireland before an-
other general election it is possible that
large cumbers of Sinn Felners would
refrain from fomenting trouble."
The police are arresting several local
leaders in Cork and Limerick but the
Sinn Felners say that these are small
fry and do not matter. They boast that
the authorities dare not arrest Irof. de
Vr.lera or Countess Markievicz.
Fear Irrepressible Conflict.
Editorially the laily Mail emphasizes
the "extreme gravity of the Irish situa-
tion as revealed in Tuesday's debate in
the house of commons. It infers that
the "ioiiit of Irrepressble conflict Is
being approached." and does not believe
toe Sinn Fe'inei will puy much atten-
tion to the warning of Premier Lloyd
George. The newspaper believes the
warning may have to lie enforced un-
less at this late hour some scheme can
be devised to make Irishmen themselves
responsible for the preservation of law
and order. The Daily Mail suggests the
"That the convention Ih- invited to
take upon itself the responsibility for
nominating a small body of Irishmen
to carry on the government in Ireland
until the convention has either reached
an acreement or adjourned iniefinitely.
The great need of the moment is to
get the management of Irish affairs
Into Irish hands us whatever is done
by English authority Is sure to be mis-
understood and resented."
