GAINS ON MEUSE, RIGHT
IS FIRM, BERLIN DECLARES
BERLIN, Sept. 29.
The War Ofnce, In Us official state
ment today, declared tho operations In
France had settled down to a general
artillery duel, Interspersed with fre
nuent assaults at the vital points alons
Tho report says:
While tho fighting Is general, It
Is not apparent nt any line of the
battle that tho conflict has entered
Into deciding stages. The German
right has been subjected to severe
pressure, but every attempt to
penetrate It has been repelled with
great loss to the enemy.
On tho centre there las been no
decided change for nearly a week,
while on the left the fighting con
tinues. Our forces continue to make
gains along the lines of the Mcuse.
In an earlier statement the Govern
ment emphatically denied tho British
contention that more than one subma
rine took part In the attack on the
cruisers Cressy, Abouklr and Hogue.
The report of the Cressy's o. leers that
nho fired on the U-D are characterized
as false. Not a slngte shot was fired
from the three cruisers that were sunk.
Tho L'-n was in action 47 minutes, and
after the thrco cruisers had been sunk
was pursued until nightfall bv a fleet
of cruisers, destroyers and torpedo
boats, but escaped under cover of dark
ness. It Is reported from the front that
tho Belgians, during a sortlo from
Antwerp, occupied for a time tho vlt
lage of Linden, near Louvaln. In that
village Is a castle belonging to a Dutch
family named Van Blankenhagen. This
Dutch family, out of goodness of
heart, had turned the castle Into a
temporary Red Cross hospital. Upon
the roof both Dutch and Hed Cross
flags were floating. Inside 40 Belgian
soldiers were undergoing treatment.
The Belgians fired upon tho village
and the castle was burned. This Is
attributed to tho anger of the Bel
gians, who accused the Dutch Gov
ernment of allowing German troops
to cross Dutch territory,
A mass-meeting of leading financiers,
business men and others was held here,
when a resolution was unanimously
adopted providing the success of tho
recent war loan.
Those attending the meeting stated
their readiness to make any sacrifices
to see that the German Government
has sufficient finances to carry the war
to a successiui conclusion

DIRECTOR PORTER POSES
ON "FLOGGING TRIANGLE"
Photographed When Private Party
Visits Convict Ship "Success."
Director Porter had a tasto of the
"flogging triangle" today when ho visited
the prison ship "Success," now anchored
off the Market street wharf. Stretched
out on the triangle, "a very uncomfort
able position," as he called It, Director
Porter posed for a photograph, a symbol
of the triumph of modern penal methods
against the Inhumun ways of old. With
Director Porter were the Board of In
spectors ol the Eastern Penitentiary,
Warden Robert J. McKcnty, of the peni
tentiary, and a number of friends.
The party was invited by Captain
Smith, of the Success, to view the ship
privately. They were so Impressed with ,
what they saw, the Instruments of pun
ishment, the cells, the solitary confine- i
ment deck and the general atmosphere
that pervades the "ocean hell " as the
Success was called when In commission.
that they entered and re-entered the (
cells In an endeavor to get closer to the j
experiences of suffering and horror to I
which human beings were subjected as
late as fort years ago, when the ship
and four sister ships used for the same
pirpose were abolished.
When some one In the party commented
on the fact that the ship typified the
most horrible example of man's Inhu- I
inanity to man, Warden McKcnty de-
clared, "I can show you things Just as i
bad in this country," which brought to ,
mind tho fact that there are et many '
things in the way of prUon refoim to be
accomplished in this country.

That tho battle' which will end tho war
will be fotight soon, probably before the

ion of foreign military attaches here.
They believe that It must take place
probably Immediately after tho battle
of the Aisne enters Into Its decisive
stages. And the majority of them look
for simultaneous conflicts, onb In Bel
glum and west of tho Rhine, and the
j other In the eastern theatre of activities,
probably In East Prussia.
French officers to whom I talked on my
trip from the front seemed to share the
same opinion. They declared that there
was such a decided contrast between tho
spirits of the Germans and the Allies

of victory. In fact they are so con

"The French Minister of Marine has

nothing to Justify such a story. Up to
