ALLIES ADVANCE.

100 METRES GAINED

WELLINGTON, January 21. The High Commissioner cabled from don at 5 30 p.m. yesterday :—

" Paris reports state that artillery duels were general between the sea and the Somme region. At Nieuport there was a lively duel, the enemy vainly attempting to destroy a bridge at tbo mouth of the Yser, The Allies succeeded in demolishing a portion of their defences, and also of auxiliary works at a farm near St, Georges, the defence of which the enemy had strongly organised. In Lagrnrie woods the enemy violently attacked one trench. The Allies troops recoiled for one instant, but succeeded in re-capturing by two energetic counter attacks first tbe most of thß lost ground, and subsequently the whole position, which they are now holding.

At St. Hubert, the Germans blew up a salient on the north east of the Allies tren. ches, but the troops rushing into connecting outlets prevented the enemy gaining access.

North of Pontamou a son, in Lapretre wrod, the Allies are now established 100 metres beyond the trenches 'which were taken on Monday."
