CHICAGO, Sept. 28John
W. M'Cutchcon, a leading car
toonist, has purchased an island
in the South Atlantic near the
Bahama group, it became
known today. The island is
three and one half miles long
and a little more than a mile
wide and is down on the admi
ralty charts as Salt Kay Island.
To mariners it is known as
Treasure Island, because of the
many legends of buried gold
which pirate chieftains buried
there when they.roamed the
Spanish Main. M'Cutcheon
places more faith in the cocoa
nut trees, of which there are
30,000, than he does in the tales
of 'the bum .1 treasure and he
xpects hi\ turn to come from
products of the toil instead of
buried treasure chests.
Telegrams
Oolober 21st, 1916.
London, 19:Fifteen minutes o
infantry fighting proved sufficient
for the French army to capture the
strong position of Sailly Saillesel
from the Germans and to give the
Allies command of five miles of
the Hapaume road.
The Allies air mastery deprived,
the Germans of th*ir "I .\ sequently the German art'lltrv whs
ineffective. The tire from the Bri-
tish and French gun< had continued
for a long time. The infantry ollt
cers had synchronized their watch
es and were ordered to deliver the
attack exatlv at 11.45 o'clock.
The range of the artillery which
had Veen battering Sailly Saillesel
was increased a few hundred yards
The shells dropped olten wide of
their mark except in Combles
which sustained the heaviest kind
of fire for several hours. Then the
Germans tried to silence the French
and British batteries but their
practice was so poor that the Allies
gunners were able re continue their
work uninterruptedly.
The Germans had announced
that Sailly Saillesel was impreg
nable, in an order to the troops
and its rapid capture came some
what as a suprisc to the Entente
commanders. One Bavarian and
two Prussian divisions partici-
pated in the defense showing
the importance of the attack on
the position.
British Front in France, Via
London, 19:The war will last
another year according to the
consensus of opitiion among the
British soldiersand their leaders
It is also the opinion of the
Germans, if the views of pri-
soners count for anything.
Before the grand offensive
started a high authority inform
ed the Associated Press that the
German line would not be brok
en this Summer and that slow
operations, wearing down the
Germans, would be inaugrated
and would probably last
through another Summer.
With the approach of another
Winter which will make mili-
tary movements difficult this
officer recalled his prediction
and speaking of the situation
today he said:" We know what
the German resources'were and
what ours were, and the time
required to force a decisive vie
tory for our arms is a matter of
calculation. German prisoners
taken during the Summer in-
variably spoke of peace being
certain by the Autumn. It is a
universal rer.ark among the
British thatnever hasthe morale
of the prisoners varied more
than now. you will notice that
we are always taking prisoners
and that the Germans get very
few f ours".
London, 19:Gradually the
French are drawing their front
closer to the town of Peronne
on the eastern bank of the
Somme.
After Wednesdays advance
along a mile front between
Biachcs and LaMaisonette on
the west side of the river an
attack launched Thursday was
rewarded with another gain
which virtually brings them to
the bank of the stream.
To the north and east of Sail-
ly Saillesel where the French
have advanced their line in the
last few days at what the Ber
li.i war office was at a cost in
casualties not commensurate
with the gain, the Germans
made a violent counterattack
which was repulsed.
Berlin admits that in their
attack on the Sars-Mbrval front
the British captured German
positions.
Heavy ains fell Thursday on
the British front and except for
a slight gain by the British at
Butte deWarlencourt and the
repulse of German counterat
tack there comparative quiet
prevails.
As yet no decisive result has
been achieved by either the
Teutons or Russians in the vio-
lent fighting that has been going
on for several days in Volhynia
and Galicia.
October 22nd, 1916.
Via Key West.
Berlin:Count Karl Stuerghk
an Austrian Prince, was shot
and killed today by the editor
of a, Vienna newspaper.
Berlin:Field Marshal Von
Mackensens new offensive in
Dobrudja is gaining important
ground and has penetrated the
Russia-Roumanian line at seve-
ral places. Tusla on the Black
Sea 11 miles south of Constanza
was captured and the heights- jo
miles west of Tusla were storm-
ed and three thousand prisoners
taken.
The new advange a g a i n
threatens theCoustanza-Tscher-
navoda railway leading to the '
interior of Roumania.
Petiograd:Some ground in
Dobrudja has been lost by the
Russia Roumanian forces. Von
Mackensen has captured the
village of Kokardtna. 1
Fighting along the Volhynia
and Galicia fronts is violent
but there has been no impor-
tant change of ground.
Paris: Notable headway
was made by the Serbians on
the Macedonian front in their
campaign for Monastir and
there have been further gains on
the Cerna River southeast of
Monastir.
Unofficial advices say that
the Serbians assisted by French
troops are attacking the Bulga-
rians in theKenali region along
the Florina-Monastir railway.
The Bulgarian position here, is
virtually outflanked by the'Ser-
bian capture of Velyselo in the
Cerna sector.
London: On the Somme
front General Haigs forces are
again scorjng gains towards
Bapaume. A further advance
has been made near Butte de
Warlencourt.
Pekin:A square mile of ter-
ritory adjoining the French con-
cession at Tientsin has been
forcibly seized by the French
Consul with the assistance of


troops. Chinese police werear-
rested and Frenchmen substitu
ll J"eP'yinff to a protest from
