proaching Assault.
Paris, Aug. 21.?An official statement issued to-night
says: "Namur is partially invested. Heavy artillery
opened fire toward noon. The westward movement of
the German columns continues on both banks of the Meuse
outside the range of the action at Namur.
"German cavalry forces passed through Brussels to?
day, going westward. They were followed later by an
army corps.
"A war tax of $40,000,000 has been levied on the city
of Brussels by the German general.
(The Kaiser's levy on Brussels means $55 for every
man, woman and child in the city, an average of $250 from
every family.)
"The retreat of the Belgians continued to-day without
incident.
"As already announced, after reconquering ihe fron?
tier, our troops advanced into Lorraine along a front ex?
tending from the Donan mountain to Chateau Salins. They
drove the Germans back into the valley of the Seille River
?ind the marshy district, and our advance guards reached
Delme, Dieuz and Morhange.
FIGHT FIERCE ON BOTH SIDES.
"Yesterday several German army corps made a vig?
orous counter attack and our advance guards fell back. The
fight was extremely fierce on both sides and, in view of the
greatly superior number of the Germans, our troops, who
had been fighting continuously for six days, retreated.
"Our left covers the advanced works of Nancy and
our right is firmly established in the Donan hills. The great
strength of our enemy made our remaining in Lorraine
useless and imprudent.
"Details received show that the reOCCU?petion of Muel
hausen was a great success. The offensive, first along the
line from Thann to Donnemarie ( Dammerkirch) and then
on to Muelhausen, was carried out with rare dash.
"By a bold stroke General Paul Pau, once he was
master at Thann and Donnemarie, directed the troops west
of Muelhausen, giving the enemy an opportunity to engage
him between our lines and the Swiss frontier. Then, by a
second move, the Germans were thrown back on Muel.
hausen.
"While our right attacked Altkirch the left advanced
on Neu-Brisach and Colmar, threatening the enemy's line of
retreat. The Germans were then forced to accept battle,
which was hottest in the suburbs of Muelhausen and Dor
nach. Our infantry captured twenty-four guns at the point
of the bayonet and made several thousand prisoners. The
fight swept through the streets from house to house and the
German losses were enormous.
"Following up the success one part of the army occu?
pied Muelhausen, while the rest turned on Altkirch and
forced the Germans to fall backward in disorder. Thus we
attained the intial object of our troops in upper Alsace, to
drive the German forces on to the right bank of the Rhine.
FRENCH STRATEGY DESCRIBED.
"The bat-les of Muelhausen and Allkirch lift the cur?
tain practically for the first time on the operations of ihe
two chief belligerents. The losing of a position and its re?
capture in a war so colossal is merely an episode which
serves to indicate the strength and weakness of the opposing
forces. The strategy which enabled the French to retake
Muelhausen was as follows:
"The French knew from a\ iaicro thai the Germans had
between the French frontier and Muelhausen a compara?
tively small force and that the major part of their army was
massed on the right bank of the Rhine. With this knowl?
edge the objective in the attack was to cause the Germans
