Summary of Today's War News
German troops appear today to be continuing their ac
tivities in Belgium. German cavalry patrols hnve been
seen north of Antwerp and the entire civil guard of An
twerp has been called out to defend the city.
There is good reason to believe that a serious engage
ment, in which the German advance is opposed by troops
of Belgium and France, has been going on since Sunday,
south of Brussels. No definite news of the progress of
this encounter, however, has been received.
An official statement made in Brussels is to the effect
that German incursion toward Brussels has been stopped.
The Belgian position is described as excellent.
Other reports from Brussels say that trenches are be
ing thrown up in the environs of the city.
An official communication from the Russian general
staff at St. Petersburg says the Russian mobilization u
now completed and that eleven members of the Russian
imperial family are at the front.
Other reports from St. Petersburg by way of London
set forth that the Russian armies began their general ad
vance last Sunday.
It is rumored persistently at The Hague that the Ger
man crown prince, Federick William has been seriously
wounded at the front and that the Emperor has hasten-d
to the side of his son. who is said to be at Aix la Chappelle.
Despatches from London, delayed by the British cen
sors, announce officially the landing of the British ex
penditionary force on the French coast. Field Marshal
Sir John French, the British commander in chief, was
given a rousing reception in Paris. The British army in '
France is believed to number between 100,000 and 120,
The Servian premier is authority for the statement
that Austrian forces have suffered a serious defeat on the
Servian line. He telegraphed London that 15.0000 Aus
trians have been "annihilated" near Sabac, whence they
fled in disorder.
Two German cruisers, evidently seriously disabled in
an encounter with the enemy, have been brought into
Hong Kong. The censorship at the British port stopped
the sending of the vessels names or any details of the en
gagement which preceed their capture.
The German cruiser Leipzig which came into San Fran
cisco yesterday for coal, left early today with a supply
that will carry her to the nearest German port, in Samoa.
The Japanese cruiser Idzumo is believed to be coming
up the Pacific coast to observe the movements of the
The announcement from London and Paris that no war
correspondents will be allowed in the field, coupled with
Great Britain's request to Belgium to expel the corres
pondents now in the zone of operations, make it probable
that the story of the first great battle will be told only
through official reports. It is known that the German
general staff regulations absolutely prohibit correspond
ents with the army. Only official artists and historians
may go with German troops and they will not be permitted
to write or make public their sketches until the conclusion
of a campaign, or the discretion of the authorities.
A Rome dispatch reports the loss of an Austrian torpedo
boat off Pola; only one member of the crew being saved.
By special arrangement with the post office department
there will be an Atlantic mail service each Wednesday
and Saturday from New York and Liverpool by steamers
flying the American flag.
No authentic news has come to hand today concerning
the reported French advance into Alsace-Lorraine in the
direction of Strassburg.
Holland is reported as continuing her elaborate pre
cautions along her frontier to enforce her neutrality
should occasion arise.
Since his departure from Berlin to the front, Emperor
William issued a decree in which he said:
I am firmly confident that with the help of God, the
bravery of the German army and navy and the unquench
able unanimity of the German people during these hours
of danger, victory will crown our cause."
