Very sincerely, THOMAS A. BOYLE, Manager The Playhouse. London, Sept 18. A British official communication Issued tonight gives a more complete account of the fighting In the Somme region of France September 15-16. It says: The attack was launched at 6.20 oclock the morning of the 15th on the front from the Leuzd wood to Pozieres. The enemys position consisted of a treble line of entrenchments connected by strong subsidiary trenches. In addition to this the enemy was holding some advanced , positions with machine guns in i trenches, works ana sheU holes be- ; hind these fortifications and at a distance of some 7000 yards from our front the enemy had recently con-1 structed and wired a fourth mine lifle of trenches in front of the Le Tran-sloy-Bapaume road. "Supported by more than 1000 guns of all calibres the hostile defense was formidable. Punctually our infantry, accompanied by heavy armored cars, moved forward to the assault close under cover of our field artillery and barrage. The front of the German line was carried everywhere except on the high ground between Ginchy and the Leuze wood and at the Foureaux wood. Neglecting these places the Infantry swept forward around them and by 10 oclock in the morning had captured the whole of the village of Flers with its strong points and advanced to a position beyond the village. . The outskirts of Martinpuich and Courcelette also were reported about the same time. The latter two villages fell in our hands in the course of the afternoon. The Northumbrian and London territorials, Scottish and English new army divisions with troops from Canada and New Zealand shar-ed with our guards the credit fm-these successes. w On our right the enemy maintained his hold on the high ground northwest of Leuze wood and our efforts to dislodge him were not successful. At the Foureaux wood, however, the enemy began to surrender when both his flanks were turned and by 11 oclock the whole wood was in our possession. Armored Car of Great Value. We thus gained not only practically the whole of the ground between the Combles valley and the River Ancre, but are well down the forward slopes. Thanks to our excellent artillery observations tnus afforded we are in a position to inflict heavy punishment on the Germans. Our armored cars gallantly led the action, knocking out hostile machine guns and inflicting heavy losses by their machine gun fire enfilading the German trenches and causing indescribable demoralization in the enemys ranks. On the night of the 15th the enemy began a counter-attack with forces hastily brought from all directions. These counter-attacks contin ied through the 16th and were all repulsed with heavy losses to the enemy. The New Zealand troops after gaining their objectives on the 15th were particularly heavily counter-attacked and not only stood their ground and punished the enemy heavily, but even made some progress. On the 16th our troops made further progress, especially in the direction of Les Boeufs. In the course of the above operations and in close connection with them the new army troops have skilfully and gallantly extended our gain south of Thiepval, seizing trenches and capturing hundreds of prisoners. The result of the fighting Is of great Importance and is probable the most effective blow which has yet been dealt the enemy by the British troops. The damage to his morale Is probably of greater consequence than the seizure of dominating positions and the capture of between 4000 and 5000 prisoners. To date since the first of July the British forces alone on the Somme battle front have met and engaged 35 German divisions of which 29 have already been defeated and withdrawn. "During the past week in the battle area only 14 hostile aeroplanes have been reported os crossing our lines while our machine have made between 2000 and 3000 flights across the enemys lines.

"PURPLE LADY IN TOWN. Grand Theater Presents Clever Film Production. "The Purple Lady, shown yesterday at the Grand, introduces to the local screen world Ralph Herx, whose latest achievement on the speaking stage was in Ruggles of Red Gap. It also exploits Irene Howley, a film beauty of reputation and great popularity. The story follows the Sydney Roseb-feld story closely, and Is a somewhat daring exposition of the sharp contrast between the purposes of an uplift uncle, Silas Gilworthy, who descends into the tango world to reform it and remains to learn the figures in which the purple lady is expert. Skilfully matched in with the dashing comedy is a thrilling detective story, with a finish that is a real surprise and with enough suspense to make a crook play go alone. This detective feature is builded around a necklace of matched pearls, and the situations are tense and enthralling. Tom Moore in another of the Whos Guilty? series, entitled Weighed in the Balance, is another feature, with a clever vaudeville turn by Brown and Grue,. entitled "Crayon and Song. The program is repeated today. RAMONA AT PLAYHOUSE. Strong Bill Presented Yesterday at Playhouse.
