Washington. Sept. 12. Following ia
a primer of today's war -geography:
Chalons to Verdun. The country
lying between Chalons-Sur-Marne a"d
Verdun, which is now being fought
over by the allies and the Germans, is
full of interest. Eleven miles north
of Chalons Is St. Hiliare-au-Temple,
the junction point between Rhcims
and Verdun. Three miles farther on
is ,he large military camp De Chalons
and three miles beyond this a great
circular entrenchment, known as At
tila's Camp. It was near here that
Attlla, the Hun, was defeated .in the
battle of Chalons a battle which Sir
Edward Creasy reckoned among the
15 decisive battles of the world. Thirty-three
miles beyond Chalons is the
town of Valmy, where the allies under
the Duke of Brunswick were defeated
by fthe .French in 1792. This was the
famous cannonade of "Valmy," where- .
in, according to Carlyle, the French
sansculottes "did not fly like poultry."
A pyramid on the battlefield contains
the heart of Kellermann, one of the
French generals in that battle. Beyond
this place lies the picturesque coun
try which contains the famous forest
of Argonne, well known from the cam
paign of 1792. After passing through
this forest Verdun is reached, 171
miles Xrom Paris.
Bavay. A town of northern France,
162 miles southeast of Valenciennes,
two-thirds of the way to Maubeuge,
with about B.0OO Inhabitants. It was
pillaged and burned several times and
laid waste in the 15th-17th centuries.
It stood at the intersection of eight
Roman roads, seven of which still re
main. Sadowa. An Austrian village in Bo
hemia, four miles northwest of Konig
gratz and 30 miles from the German
frontier. The village, with the small
adjoining wood, was one of the princi
pal Prussian positions in the decision
battle of Koniggratz .during the seven
weeks' war in I860.
Suczawa. An Austrian town in the
southeast corner of the province of
Bukovina, CO miles south of Czerno
wUz by rail on the River Suczawa,
which forms there the boundary be
tween Bokovina and Ronmania. It
was many times besieged by Poles.
Hungarians, Tartars and Turks and in
1C79 It w-as plundered by the Turks.
Liesa. A town in Prussian Posen.
25 miles northeast of Glogau and 4S
' miles from the Russian Poland border
line. During the 30 years' war it ba
came an important commercial town.
It was burned in 1C5G and again in
Lobau. A town in Saxony. Germany,
on the Lobau water. 40 miles east of
Dresden and miles west of Bres
lau. It is about eight mil-?s from the
Austrian frontier. Ixibau suffered se
verely during the Hussite war and was
deprived of its rights in 1517.
Washington. D. C, Sept. 10. Fol
lowing is a primer of today's war ge;
Galicia The lamest province of
Austria, bounded on t'.ie north and
east by Russia and separated from
Hungary on the south by the Carpa
thian mountains; on -the west it is
bounded by the province of Bukovina.
Ixng winters with an abundant snow
fall, short and wet springs, hot sum
mers and long and steady autumns,
give it the severest climate in Aus
tria. Its principal agricultural pro
ducts are barley, oats, rye, wheat,
maize and leguminous plants, and its
minerals are salt, coal, petroleum,
zinc and sulphur. In 1910 the prov
ince fliad a population of 8. 022.156.
On the first partitition of Poland in
1772 Galicia came to Austria; in 1795
Wert Galicia was added to the district
and the further addition of Cracow
was made in 1846.
Bukovina A small Austrian prov
ince in the extreme eastern part of
Austria-Hungary, lying next to that
part of Russia which was formerly
owned by Turkey. Its area is 4.035
square miles and its population in 1910
was 80,099. The official language is
German. The province was occupied
by the Russians in 17C9 and by the
.Austrians in 1774. In 1777 Turkey
ceded the province to Austria. It was
incorporated with Galicia in 1786, but
was separated from it in 1S40.
Crecy A northern French town 12
miles north or Abbeville and 12 miles
from the sea, made famous by the vic
tory gained here by the English over
the French in August, 1346. Here for
the first time in continental warfare
the English long-how proved its worth,
and after a brief contest the French
cross-bow men were driven back with
St. Dizier A town of northeast
France, 45 miles north of northwest
of Chamount by rail, 55 miles from the
Lorraine boundary and 120 miles east

about 12,000. It dates from the third
century. It sustained a memorable
aiere against Charles V in 1544.
Breslau The capital of Prussian
Silesia, on the Ober, 350 miles from its
mouth, and 202 miles from Berlin on
th- railway to Vienna. The city is 50

Ambassador In Statement.
The following statement was author
ized last night by the Turkish ambas
sador after his talk with Secretary
"In abrogating the capitulations
Turkey is simply recovering national
rights belonging to a nation, some of
which were granted by her in the mid
dle ages in u:nwise moods of liberal
ity; others wrested from her'; others
again came to be abandoned aa a corol
lary of the abandonment of the former.
The situation can be stated by saying
that Turkey has decided to be mistress
in her own house.
"She had tried to attain that end by
negotiations, but the great powers of
Europe subordinated their consent to
such onerous conditions that, taking
advantage of the present situation
Turkey decided to do away with, the
capitulations by "an unilateral decision
of her own.
"The United States enjoys some of
the privileges of the capitulations by
virtue of the most favored nation clause
inserted in the treaty concluded with
Turkey in 1S30.
"The statement that the American
missionary institutions in Turkey are
affected by the capitulations is inac
curate. Those institutions exist in Tur
key hy virtue of general laws govern

OF DAMAGE IN BELGIUM
Washington, Sept. 12. The German
embassy yesterday received the fol
lowing wireless from Berlin:
"Herr Helfferich, director of the
Deutsche bank, after touring in Bel
gium, states: 'News of destruction of
Belgian towns is exaggerated; Verviers
and Tirlemout, industrial centers, and
f'harltroi. quite intact; Lou vain and
Dinant only partly destroyed.
"After the surrender of Ghent, a
I German officer was insidiously killed
and another wounded.
"The Russian cavalry burned from
Rheer lust of destruction, although
thf-re. was no fighting in that district,
the splendid caftle. of Count Mir bach,
tlu Prussian parliamentarian."
"The English liheral review. Na
tion, attacks the British government,
declaring in a long article that Eng
land brought about the .war under a
futile pretext and that Germany was
never unfair against England.
