London Report Says Kitchener's
New Army of 200.000 Will
Share in New Attack.
'H ? a',I? ??? Tlii- T
Loadea, April 10. The Allies have
now landed an army on the ?Egean
shore of the Gallipoli peninsula, the
opposite side of which forms one edge
of the Dardanelles Straits, under
heavy fire from Turkish entrenchments.
This fore already has bej?un its ad?

tions separating it from the strong?
holds on the straits, which the? **uns of
the allied fleet have been battering for
weeks, while the warahipa have attain
begun a general gombardment. Mean?
while the Russian Black Sea fleet is
bombarding the Bosporus fort?.
Though no mention is made In to
day'a official bulletin of the number* of
the landini* force, it is assumed that, in
view of the strength of the Turkish
army at this point, the column must
be n la i (re one. A report current in

It was supposed that these troops,
who havn been leaving British shores
in !ari*e numbers, were l'oing to ?he
Continent, but ohseners who have re?
turned from the British front in France
have commented on the fact that none
of Kitchener's army ia there, and il ia
known that thousands of them have

Germans Use Blinding Gai
to Aid Poison Fumet
While Soldiers, Dressed Like Divers, Loose Deadly \ apoi
Exploding Shells Spread Chemical Which Impairs
Eyesight?Inspirators Protect Charging Troop3.
By WILL IRWIN.
? pjrrlarht, 1811 ?y Th? New rssrss Trll
Boulogne, April 26.?The gaseous vapor which the Germana use
against th<- French diviafana near Yprea last Thursday, contrary to th
rules of The Hague Convention, introduces a new element intu warfare
The attack of last Thuraday evening was preceded by the rising of ;
cloud of vapor, greenish gray an?! iridescent. That vapor se*tle<i to th'
ground like a swamp mist and drifted toward the French trenches on i
lirisk wind. Its effect, on the French was a violent nausea ami faintnes?
followed by an ut?er collapse. It is believed that the Germans, wh<
charged in behind the vapor, met mm resistance at all, the French a
their front being virtually paralyzed.
Everything indicates lung ami thorough preparation for this attack
The work of Bending out the vapor was done from the advam-ed Germai
trenche?. Men garbed in a Iresa resembling the harness of a ?liver ant
armed with retorts or generators alunit :. feel high and connected uritl
ordinary hosepipe turned the vapor loose toward the French lines. Soin?
witnesses maintain that the Germai?s sprayed the earth before tl?
trenches with a fluid which, being ignited, sent up the fumes. The Ger?
man troops, who followed up this advantage with a direct attack, held
inspirators in their mouth?-, these preventing them from b'-i-g overcome
by the fumes.
In addition to this, th?- Germans appear to have tired ordinary explo?
siv.- shells loaded with some chemical which had a paralyzing ?-flfect on all
the men in the region of the explosion. Some chemical in the omposition
of these shells produced violent watering of the eyes, so that the men
overcome by them were practically blinded for Borne hours.
The effect of the noxious trench gas seems to be slow in wearing away.
The men come out O? their violent nausea in a ?tat" of utter collapse.
Some of the rescued have already lied from the after effects. How many
of the men left unconscious in the trenches when the French broke died
from ''m- fumes it is impossible to say. since those trenches were at once
occupied by the Germans.
This new form of attack needs fur mece ? a favorable wind. Twice
in the day that followed th<> Germans tried tren? h vapor ou the Canadians
who made on the right of th?' French position a land which will probably
be remembered as one of th?- heroic episodes .>:' this war. In both ca ea
the wind was nol favorable, and the Canadia is managed to stick through
it. The noxious, explosive bomb? were, however, used continually a-gainst
the Canadian forces and caused some I'.
