Englishmen attribute hta lack of

LONDON, Sept. 14.—Overconfidence
and overwork of their army undoubt*
edly cost the Germans their loss of
the battle of the Marne, which It now
seems certain, has ended the German
offensive in France. This was em
phasised in an official review of ths
general operations which wsx issued
by the war office today.
The story of the general campaign
was a duplication of the official state
ment issued on Saturday night, but
the incidents, as reported by General
French, throw anew light on many
phases of the campaign. Especially
is it made evident that the Germans
have been responsible for great brutal
ity to the residents of the territory
through which they have passed. Much
needless damage has been caused by
thsae tactics, the report says; cha
teaus have been pillaged and wanton
ly destroyed.
The report aaya that on Sept. 4. the
Germans were apparently confident
that they had completely defeated the
British and that from then on they
would have only the French, whom
they held in contempt, to reckon with.
Consequently, General Von Kluck be
gan an attempted flanking march di
rectly across the front of the allied
lines, clearly intending to split the
allies in two and then defeat them at
his leisure. In this manoeuvre he was
outgeneraled, the allies being freed
to attack in force by the splendid co
operation of the army of the defense
of Parts.
It is stated that the numerous let
ters found on the German dead show
that all of the troope believed they
were about to enter Paris, when the
order to retreat was given. They were
so close to the city that the bitterest
disappointment is expressed in many
of the letters that the attempt to take
the city was not made.
On Sept 7, it is apparent General
Von Kluck realised that he was in
danger of being completely outflank
ed. and either annihilated or forced to
surrender. Consequently, on that day
the order to retreat was given and
the high tide of the German invasion
of France had been reached.
At that time, the entire British army
and the French sixth army were co
operating and the German rear and
right flank were in great danger and
were only saved by a precipitate flight.
General French pays the highest
tribute to the work of the British avia
tion coivs. They have at all times co
operated with the French general
staff and that their work was appre
ciated is evidenced by the message
regarding them which General Joffre
sent to General French in which he
“The precision, exactitude and reg
ularity .of the news brought to head
quarters by the British aviation corps
is evidence of the perfect organisation
of these trained pilots and observers.
Their reports have been of the great
est benefit to me and my staff.”
During 20 days of fighting the Brit
ish aviators have made a dally aver
age of nine reconnaissance flights of
more than 100 miles each, establishing
the individual ascendency of the Brit
ish methods.
Whenever hostile air craft have
been seen the British have immedi
ately attacked with one or two ma
chines and have driven them off,
killing many of them.
Wherever the Germans occupied
villages on the route of march, the
report of Gen. French says, it was
their invariable custom to abuse the
inhabitants. They destroyed furni
ture in the homes they occupied, even
going to the extent of tmlling pic
tures from the wall and demolishing
The report la filled with striking in
cidents, but one of the most remark
able deals with the operations of a
British second army corps. On Sept.
10 this section of the British forces
was marching northward. Another
force was reported marching in the
same direction along a parallel road.
For a time it was believed this body
also was British troops. Finally a
acout reported It was composed of
Germans who were retreating.
The British commander Immediate

enemy. First they were headed off
and then when In the trap an on

the Germans. They had all the worst
of the position. however, being
trapped in a sunken road with a great
marsh on their flank. The Germans
were badly defeated and one body of
400, surrendered.
The same day a small party of
French troops under a non-commie
sloned officer was surrounded by a
body of Germans. They fought des
perately until only the officer and
one man was left alive. Both wete

German officer in command of the

complimented them on their bravery
and permitted them to retain their

LANBING, Mich.. Sept 14.—(Spe

compiled today for the state board of
canvassers. L. D. Dickinson, of Char
lotte, was nominated as the Republi
can candidate for lieutenant-governor
by a plurality of 505 over David E.
Heineman, of Detroit. .*
Dickinson’s tote: vote is 60,419;
Heineman received 69,907, while B. J.
Curts, of Flint, polled 66,660.
Because of the close race for the
nomination for lieutenant-governor,
the result was not known until the
official figures had been oompiled.
In case Heineman desires a recount.
It may be necessary for the Detroiter
to apply to the supreme court.for a
writ of mandamus to prevent the state
canvassers from Issuing the certificate
of nomination to Dickinson. The elec
tion statutes covering a recount of a
primary vote are vague sad the
method of procedure Is far from clear.
James N. Mcßride, national Pro*
gresslve candidate for the nomination
for lieutenant-governor, polled but
6,928 votes in the state, while H. R.
Pattenglll, Bull Moose candidate for
head of the ticket, received 6,968, or
about 3,000 less than polled by L.
Whitney Watkins, the Progressive
candidate in the primaries two years
The vote cast for the Republican
candidates for governor was the larg

68,406; F. C. Martindale, 47,942; A. J.

the vote cast la 1908, when Fred M.
Warner. James B. Bradley and H. S.

The Democratic vote fell off the

While the folks have been thinking

for a larger opportunity. Many, re

The country knows Wilson; knows

cavalry tactics. British military
authorities believe that .toward

to the cavalry lessons of our
great civil strife. British tent

The German retreat has not
become a rout, but It differs In
two important respects from con
ditions that contributed to the
orderliness of the recent retire

aUlee had the great fortress of
Paris, not far In the rear, as a
backstop, and rallying point,
while the Germans are without
any such nearby base; second, aS
roads, railways and bridges were
in perfect condition behind the
allies to assist their retirement,
whereas the routes over which
the Germans must now move
