SAYS LONDON DISPATCH
LONDON, Sept. 17.
Germany Is striving desperately to
resume the offensive In France, but
so far every effort has been nullified
by the fierceness of the British-French
attack. This fact was emphasized at
the Foreign Office th' afternoon,
where It was also stated that the gen
eral battle continues, with the slight
advantage so far noted entirely In
favor of the allies.
The German forces are being heav
ily reinforced all alon the line.
Troops withdrawn from the Prussian
border and all of tho first line regl
ments that previously had been held
In Germany and In Belgium are being
rushed to the front In France.
Especially Is the army if tho Crown
Prince being hammered, ' already
his battle line has been forced back
between eight and twenty miles at
various points. He is reported slowly
falling back on Stenay and the fa
mous Stenay gap.

eral D'Amade Is striking at the rear
of the German right wing in a- at

there in co-operation with the attack
of General D'Amnde's army would put
General von Kluk tn a perilous posi
tion, from which he might be unable
to extricate himself.
A dispatch sent by Geoffrey Young
to the Daily News from Amiens says
It is reported there that General vn
Klttk's army has been surrounded, and
"His right has been overlapped by
an army advancing from Rouen and
passing through Amiens, which led to
the eastward -turn from Complegna
and his cvacuitlon from Amiens.

proffer of mediation, ,
These conditions are said to Insist that
German territory be preserved and Ger
man commerce afforded full protection.
President Wilson told callers he had re

The official newspaper, the Nord

The reference is to the immense slegs
guns which the Germans have been re
ported as using In bombarding the Bel
