. > LATE WAR NEWS. GUNS DOMINATE ON THE LEFT WING. BOTH SIDES ANCHORED. ARMORED TRAIN INCIDENT. LONDON, November 12. (Received November 13, at 2.25 p.m.) The ‘ Daily Chronicle’s ’ correspondent states that the German onslaughts from Dixmude to Arras during the week were terrible. The enemy progressed in places, only to be driven back next day. Artillery dominates the position so effectively that substantial continual advances by either side are impossible. As the Germans are unable to make impression on our lines, they confine themselves to relentlessly bombarding Ypres, Arras, and Bethune. For the first time the Germans brought an armored train into action against a British train. The enemy’s train carried 6in guns, and threatened to become a formidable rival. At last two .aviators detected it crawling steadily towards our lines, and the British train steamed out into the fire-zone. When the enemy’s train stopped four gigantic shells exploded over it, and laid portion of it in ruins. Shells came from the British 9.2 in naval guns installed six miles away. The German engineers courageously worked under a continuous fire to remove the damaged part from the rails, end they lost many lives. The shells did much damage, but failed to destroy the engine, which dragged the remains away at nightfall. WON’T HAVE GERMAN OFFICERS. BUCHAREST, November 12.
