. > 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.

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.
