war, brings to the aid of Germany
and Austria a formidable army and
a fair navy. The Turkish army on
a war footing will number not less
than one mllliag men. Its failure
in the Balkan war "has been ascribed
to the breaking down of the officers
and not to any lack of efficiency of
the men. Realizing this defect in
the present situation, the Germans
have already sent 500 officers to the
front and there is now no disposi
tion here to minimize the strength
of the new enemy.
Tokio The Japanese-British-Indian
troops who are attempting the
reduction of the German concession
of Kiao Ch.au are reported today to
have captured another outlying fort
near Talng-Tao and to be attempt
ing to take the entire position bya
series of assaults.
They are receiving assistance from
the Japanese fleet, which is steam
ing close in shore and is bombarding
the positions with its heavy guns.
Every effort is being made by the
Japanese to take the city and ad
vices received today say that already
a good portion of it has been de
stroyed by fires set by the exploding
shells.
Meanwhile a flying squadron com
prising the swiftest cruisers of the
Japanese fleet has been dispatched
to search for and destroy the Ger
man cruiser Emden, which is raid
ing Japanese and British shipping in
the Indian ocean and that vicinity.
The Japanese cruiBers assigned to
this task are faster than the Emden
and unless the latter is able to make
a neutral port and is interned by
her commander, officials of the ad
miralty are certain she will be sunk
within a few days.
Paris Insistent claims that the
Germans have at last been defeated
In the north and that their present
desperate resistance is to cover the
withdrawal of their forces from the
coast line and to the eas"t of the Os-tend-Lille-Arras
line, were made at
military headquarters today. It Was
stated that the German resistance
has materially weakened between
Nieuport and Dixmunde? and that
most of their big guns, with the ex
ception of those mounted on autos
and their machine gun equipment,
have been withdrawn to the rear.
The German losses have been
enormous far greater in proportion
than in any previous battle of the
war. In order to divert attention
from their front in the north it is
stated that the enemy is attempting
a new offensive along the heights
of the Meuse, but that this action is
being participated in for the most
part by reserve troops and has not
the violence of the pervious assaults.
