India and England Render
London. Oct. 1.-The battle of tho
Alane now nearing thc end of its third
week, soon will outstrip in respect
to time the great contest fought at
Mukden nearly ten years ago, but still
no decisive result has been achieved
The French officiai communication
issued late today, condensed Into
about thirty words, was one of the
shortest given to the public since the
war began, lt records that progress
lias boen made by both right and left
wings of the allied armies, but gives
no detail:? or the extent of the pro
gress between the lines, ,
Military experts believe the great
claws, as they have been described
continue to open and clutch at Lag
outspread wings of the German army,
particularly the right, which forms
the upright portion of the L. and now
bas its back to the east, fighting with
desperation to prevent the French
loft from encircling or smashing it
along most of ttie front, estimated at
ISO miles in length.
Tho artillery has played by far the
most important, part in the struggle,
but on tho Gorman right lighter guns,
cavalry, and Infanry are, doing most
of the fighting with a stubbornest
and dla regard of life that - people so
orten haye said in recent years mod
ern, soldiers never would display.
There have been unprecedented ar
tillery duels between the Rivers Oise
rid Aisne and between the Ois; and
the Somme,1 which haye taken a heavy
toll of the opposing armies, followed
by cavalry and. infantry - uarges in
.which first one and then the other
side would gain or bo compelled to
Still they have bold on, the German
wing being extended farther north
ward as the French made another
move to work around it. With an un
United supply of troops this might
gu" on for an Indefinite period, but
with t ie torces'at the disposal cf the
two starrs the operations soon must
conn; to an end.
Tho Gunnan official account says
the Gormans i have. defeated the
French north and south of Alber}.

hand, place their nopes in the arrival
of reinforcements on their left and
the possibility of finding a weak spot
in the German front.
Arrival of Indian Troops.
The Indian troops should now bc
with the British army, the official bu- '
reau having today permitted thc pub-,
Ucation of the fact that they landed
in Frat! a last Friday. Of course, it ?
it not known where the Indian troops 1
are going, but it is believed the left '
wing will be stiffened by them. Some1
of the territorials also have reached '
Field Marshal French. These include
the London Scottish, one of the best,
of England's volunteer regiments, re
cruited from Scotchmen in London.
They have reached a high state of cf- (

of the besU marksmen in tho empire. I
