"There were two hours of continuous singing and cheering. 'Vive

ALLIES WHISTLE AT
GERMAN RIFLE FIRE
Additional Details About Fighting in Northern France
Indicate That Enemy's Artillery Alone Did Serious
Damage, the Infantry Being Ridiculed.
[By Cable to The Tribune.]
London, Sept. 2.?"The Daily Chronicle's" correspondent telegraphs
the following from Havre:
"I have been able to gather from a number of reliable sources some
.-?dditional details with regard to the fighting which took place during Sun?
day and Monday. On the first of those two days the British forces had a
well earned and needed rest. To their right, however, the French were
very fiercely attacked quite early in the day.
"In the earlier part of the day's encounter the enemy in tremendous
strength attacked the French forces in front of La Fere, and as the Ger?
mans were in very much superior strength the French commander deemed
it advisable to take up a position beyond La Fere. That was the sum
total of the German advantage. The attack was renewed on the French in
their new position, but two desperate onslaughts made no impression on it.
On Monday there was severe fighting all along the line, but with the ex?
ception of a slight gain of ground on the extreme left, around Amiens, the
Germans made no progress.
"I am told that no weakening of the German striking power was ap
1 parent during the fighting on both days. However, several soldiers who
saw the terrible rushes of the enemy in the Moris. Charleroi and Samte
Quentin fighting told me their frontal attacks Sunday and Monday were
not nearly so determined. On Monday, I am told, part of the British force
and the section of the French army on the right of the British succeeded
by a feigned retreat in drawing forward in the La Fere region a consid?
erable German force. The intrenched riflemen and Maxims punished the
enemy very severely and forced them back with a loss which must have
amounted to between five and six hundred in killed and wounded.
" 'I don't know what has come over the German riflemen,' an officer
?aid to me to-day, T>ut our men hare become almost totally mdifferent to
the German rifle fire. While it it going on they do their work singing,
whittling and joking in the trenches/
"An army doctor who heard thla atatement waa able to confirm it in
a remarkable way. Of 500 wounded who had come under his notice, or
whom l,e had treated, only one waa suffering from a rifle bullet wound.
All others had been hit by shrapnel bullets or bita of shells.
"On Monday the Germans did a great deal of artillery work in sup
! port of their infantry. The British replied with Maxim and rifle fire and
all accounts speak of the deadly accuracy of both.
"MOWED THEM DOWN."
"1 met to-day a gunner who was in charge of a Maxim gun, and who
at one time found himself risrht in the centre and facing an oncoming
German frontal attack.
'"Hut how we did mow them down.' he said The section in front of j
me must ha\e consisted of 800 men, and every one of them got some-1
thing. We cleared the whole lot out, but from the flanks others closed!
up. and at last we had to run for it We were forced to leave the gun
behind, but, luckily, a well planted German shell knocked it to bits before |
the Germans reached it.'
"But the allies arc not content to remain to be attacked. All the time
they are keeping the enemy on the qui vive. Belgians, French and English
take turns at keeping the Germans awake. That is accomplished by count?
less feints, skirmishes and alarms.
"An officer o< my acquaintance was told by a German prisoner, an
officer of artillery. We would rather run short of ammunition than be
kept constantly without sleep as wc have been so often.'
"Those wearing out tactics doubtless will tell the tale just aa the ;
tremendous slaughter in frontal attacks must be having a serious effect on !
the nerves of the Kaiser's soldiers. There can be little doubt of that and !
I am convinced it is correct to say that, for the moment the German for- '
ward march lus been arrested.
"There are other factors at work combining to destroy what hopes
the Germans may have of achieving victory. Even with Paris in their pos?
session they would find they were not at the end of the war, but only
facing a situation which would be the beginning of a new campaign in j
which all the disadvantages would be on their side.
"The brains of the allied armies arc not at rest. They consider what '
is beyond to-morrow. They are making sure that the future holds no '
surprises for us. It can with confidence be staled that the allies are!
drawing in a net in which I'rus-ian militarism will be caught and will
'As 1 have said, it i? something to see troops in this region be thev ,
veterans or newcomers French. English or Belgians, their quality and
high apirtta are the same. You look in vain along the ranks of' their S
thousands for a gloomy face. They are just the men one would ask for
and anv one who thinks that things are going badly for the allies ought
to see and talk to those men. Here in the ranks of the army which is doinp
the work there is no vestige of anything approaching despair They hold
hearts and head1- high.
"It is the refugee- who form the pitiful feature of this war with its
long, sweeping line of armies. I doubt if the worst side of actual warfare
can equal the tragic sight of those bereaved people living from their

Peking, Sept. ?.?The German Legation has protested to the Foreign
Office against an infringement of China's neutrality by Japan. The protest
followed the landing of a Japanese division at the newly opened Chinese
port of Lung-Kow, one hundred miles north of Tsing-Tau. Between
10,000 and 15,000 troops from eighteen transports have been put ashore.
News of the Japanese landing caused no surprise here as the Japanese
Legation several days ago requested the Foreign Office to remove the limit
of the fifty kilometres (about thirty miles) radius prescribed by the Chinese
as the fighting area around Tsing-Tau.
The Foreign Office did not comply with the request but it was under?
stood that the Chinese troops would be instructed not to oppose the
Japanese. The Chinese officials are described an incensed, but afraid of

BERLIN JOYOUS DESPITE
WAR, AMERICAN REPORTS
Cafes and Theatres Are Open, Bands Play and Foods
Prices Remain Same?Suppressed Excitement
Only Shows Nation Is at War.
fBy Cable to The Trlbnne.l
London, Sept. '2.?Philip H. Wood, an American citizen, who has Just. |
arrived from Berlin, gives an interesting account of conditions at the < ?cr?
"LifV is going on practically the same us usual." he says. "There is
n?i more difference than in London. The price of food is tbe ?ami.? as
before tbe war. Tbe caW?- are all open an?l have their hands playing. There
are almost us many concerta, ami many of th?1 tbeatrta still bare fUli

Mr. Woods says in? talked with many ?people, but obaerred no anxiety :
as to the supply of f"?>?l. apparently no one was taking any pains to be!
economical. He w?is told that there was enough food already in the coun?
try to last eighteen months. There was also mii??h optimism as to the i
result of the war.
"The general view." Mr. Wood says, "was that if the Germans didn't
win they would make it a draw. They are satisfied that their army can
! never be beaten, and that the most t*he allies can hope for is a stalemate.
! Lven If they have to retreat from France, they are confident that they will
he able to defend their own country for an Indelinlte time.
"1 asked two officers If they hud considered th?? possibility of defeat.
1 One said. Yes. it may lie lust possible, but If so. we should not be here, in
all Germany there would not be more than 50,000 men left Ix'tween the age*
of seventeen and tifty.'
"My opinion is that the war will be stoppe?! by mediation within a month.
1 But when I suggested it to a German officer, he said: 'it's no go?xl talking
! to us about mediation till we've occupi??d Paris und Sr. Petersburg. Then
we might listen to you." "
Mr. Wood found considerable bitterness against England. He whs rare?
ly successful in persuading any one that England was fighting against Prus?
sian militarism rather than the German people.
"They think England wants to crush Germany, aud they will nil fight
fo the last ?lifi'h rather than submit. I saw no sign of dissension among the
Socialists. English people In Germany are treated well."
