SEWARD, ALASKA, SEPTEMBER, 29, 1914. Member Associated Press Ten Cents the Copy GREATEST STRUGGLE OF THE AGES YET RAGES TSINGTAU COMPLETELY INVESTED BY JAPANESE GERMANS WILL LAV SIEGE TO ANTWERP MIGHTY SIRlGGLf STILL PROCELDS Paris, Sept. 29, 3 p. m. --- Nothing decisive has occurred anywhere along the lines of battle between the Ger mans and the allies in France accord ing to the official announcement given out this afternoon. The allies have gained slightly at several points but the German center still holds strongly. On the left the French continue to make progress. The Germans have obtained no apparent advantage from their suc cess on the Meuse heights. They made a breach there but the effects will be counteracted. The Germans, it is said without doubt, have been ordered to hack through the allied lines anywhere at any cost, and within a short time it is assured that the supreme moment will arrive when the Germans will be hurled back or the allies must retire towards Paris. The Germans are no longer able to disregard the advance of the Russians and they must beat the allies soon so that they can turn their attention to the Russian hosts in the east or they must watch powerlessly the capital of Germany threatened with occupation. But, this afternoon there seems to be no more indication that the battle is drawing to a close than there was a week ago.
