London. Sept. 5. -Officials of the
.?ommittcc of Americans resident in
London were up in arms to-day over
the reports of neglect of American
refugees at Havre by American offi?

is o.ienly charged that Alajor Henry,
who. was supposed to look after rcH.
?'ees coming from Paris, was to i c

refugees were thrown on the mercy of
Knglish troopers. Some allege that
Major Henry vva.? aboard La Tourain?,
where many wealthy Americans who
had journeyed from'Paria on the first
embassy special were comfortably taken
H. C. Hoover, chairman of the Ameri?
can committee here, said: "It is im?
perative that the true conditions he
known in America. There has been in?
efficient handling of the situation by
at least one person, who from all ac?
counts was supposed t?> look after
refugees. Persons of affluence seem
to have been well treated. 1 want u>
say that praise of the officers of the
Tennesse cannot be too high. Th? y
showed no favoritism."
Mr. Hoover asked, on behalf of bis
commit!?**?, that l)r. II. W. Woodhou?e.
of Philadelphia, recite the conditions
at Havre, so they could be p-ubli?ht j,
which Dr, Wooohooac did. He said:
"There were two sections of the trail.
leaving Paris on Wednesday at noon.
The lirat one carried first class pa
sengers, many of whom were booked to
sail on La France. The second :?c<-- ,
tion left Pans shortly afterward, but
not until nearly midnight did it arrive
at Havre. We were led to believe that I

over on the Tennessee, would be there
to .meet us, but instead wv were ?all

"L.-.ier Mr. Williams, of St. David'.?..!,
Philadelphia, skvv Henry, and accuse 1
him t?> his face of treating refugee?
shabbily, to which Henry replied: 'My
(?o?l. man, this is war!' In the morn- !
lag ther?.- was nothing to eat for the
women and children until we went for?
aging in the town for food for then?, ?
ami British troopers gave up their,
ration? to hungry refugees. An Knjfr |
lish g>ne?~al in a motor car came along
and asked if he could be of assistance,
producing from underneath the seat of
his automobile a largo ham and bread,
which he said he gladly contributed,
end it was thankfully received.
"Of course, it was necessary for the
women to get out of the officers' quar?
ters in the morning, and from that
time on until 2 p. m. women and chil?
dren were forced to sit in the boiling
aun. When the commander of the Ten?
nessee came ashore he' was unaware of
what hardships the refugees had been
subjected to, and at once took steps
to have thorn get ready for embarka?
tion. It was not until we got aboard
the Tennessee that we were told it wa?
unnecessary to go to the American
Consulute to show our passports to get
tickets for fhe Tennessee, which we
hsd been told hy one American official
at Havre was absolutely essential.
"Once aboard the Tennessee nothing
Was left undone to make all refugees
comfortable, and no favoritisr.i vas
shown. In one instance an American
of affluence, who has been living in
Paris, was trying to impress it upon
the Tennessee's officers that he should
have special quarter?,, but was prompt?
ly told he would be taken care of as
the others weic. Perry Belmont, I was
told, insisted upon having his touring
car placed aboard the Tennessee."
Dr. Wootjhouse and others reported
that all hotel accommodations were
taken up by a number of persons coin?
ing on the first section. Others who
were booked to sail first class on the
French liners were taken aboard ship
only after great protestation by some
other refugees, and were permitted to
sleep on deck.
Say Officer Was Drunk.
A member of the finance committee
of the American committee here de?
clared to-day that at least one officer
who had come over on the Tennessee
and ?as detailed to go on the C'onti
i.ent and assist in getting money to
stranded Americans in Switzerland and
other places had been inebriated most
of the time, and at one place had been
lifted from the train by fellow citi?
zens who were ashamed to have him
by officials of the country in
Which he was travelling.
Mr. Hoover in a statement issued to?
day said this: "Last week was one of
the most strenuous since the war
began, and of six thousand refugee?
from the Continent six hundred ware)
absolutely destitute. About five hun?
dred had been for some time withou?
food and had been fed in stations.
Boarding places were provided by the
committee- for 920 persons, and alto?
gether 1.267 persons received some
form of financial assistance, making a
total of 5,392 assisted financially to

devil thousand departures for
America during the week, making
about 6tt,000 since the war began, while

Irish Troops Call Fire of
German Artillery Deadly
Lender?, Sept. 5.-The Boulogne correspondent of "The Star" records a
conversation with some members of a small party of Dublin Fusiliers, who,
having been cut off from their regiment at CourtrSi, managed to make their
way to Boulogne. Unlike some of the men he had seen, adds the correspondent,
these Fusiliers have nothing but respect for the German artillery.
"It was every bit a? good as our own," one of them said. "They got the
raiiff in five seconds, and there was a burst of shrapnel over -ads. Two
men ?c the left of me in the trenches were killed, but both I an *n to the

ihe Carman h??*ts marched on, and the destruction of these humau atoms ]
loi a mighty wh-iJc was ot no military consequence.
MARCHED EIGHT ABREAST AT AMAZING PACE.
j'.uund a bcrtd of the road came the vanguard, consisting of a b;g coo*
tingcnt ?ol military cyclist?, with riflfs swung over their shoulders.
Knowing liic way was clear for them, they rode right through the village
at B ?-low paie. Clo.sc behind ?ame a regiment of cavalry, then field
artillery The hor-es were almost worn out and the drivers Htrashed
them until they maintained the puce that suited the requirement? of *
i<irc-?d p. arch. Mon? cavalry and cor;?s ?.f various descriptions followed,
and then the infantry.
The road was wide, and they inarched eight abreast. There seemed ?
no end to them. Such typical German faces and ligures! These met:
were'short, rather than tall, but stalwart in form and with round heat'-,
ami closely cropped hair. Their gray green uniforms were covered. ?
with duit. The rate ot march was more than four mites an hour; probably
a* mile in thirteen minute?. Considering the weight of equipment, to which
must be added the rifle, this speed is amazing, but it was clear their physi?
cal strength was being taxed to the uttermost.
Some corps were singing sentimental German Volkslieder. But many '
then were staggering along, barely able to hold their places in the ranks.
There is no room in the German army tor weaklings. They receive
scan; mercy from comrades or superiors. The non-commissioned officers
are relentlessly <tern in the maintenance of msreh discipline. They passed
aiong line.-, cursing the lagging scores with a vigorous brutality that
seemed to overawe them.
WEAKLINGS BEATEN INTO LINE.
I saw a young soldier, who look?d like a youth of twenty, receive !
several severe blows from a non-commissioned officer because fatigue
caused him to fall a little behind his rank and thus disarrange the march?
ing machine. Other men who dropped by the wayside were prodded with
bayonets until pain goaded them to fresh eftorts. One private, accused
of simulating exhaustion, v/as kicked by a non-commissioned officer with
heavy boots until he roic to his feet and went on marching. Complete
exhaustion and utter despair were written on some of the faces, but not
on the majority of them. The bulk of the troops, it must be recorded,
seemed to ?stand the test of endurance succes?tully, thanks to perfect train?
ing in the times of peace.
There seemed no community of fellowship between the officers and
men. Communication between them appeared to be conducted by the
non-commissioned officer?, who play a most important part in the German
army. Some of the ofticers who passed witnessed the chastisrm nt by
the non-commissioned men of exhausted 'oldiers. and took no notice of
iheir drastic method? of maintaining march discipline. Evidently it is ac?
cepted as a natural necessity.
The equipment of the German army is wonderfully complete. Huge
motor lorries stretched tor miles and miles, and came along after the
troops at a speed of nearly twenty miles an hour, (inns, ammunition,
Maxims and general stores on big automobiles, field kitchen?, travelling
pharmacies, field telephones and telegraph lines, portable wireless appar

it ?ai a scientifically and systematically equipped army which moved
Southward t ?ward F'aris. The number of German troops was a never
ending source of awe and terror to the French peasantry. "What chance
have we of stemming this tide of armies?"' they asked in despair.
The Germans filled the road.? and overflowed into the fields. When
thousand?, had g?5nc by, more thousands approached, and continued to
march to '.he front; and ?hen these thousands disappeared to the south
mor? tens of thousand? arrived from the rear and ?went on marching to
the front. It was an endless swarm of human ants.
A day later chance made me the spectator of an engagement between
the French and German troops.
The French were strongly intrenched, and the French artillery oc- :
cupied a favorable position under cover, but in a good line of attack.
The Germans advanced. The French artillery found the range and
thelled them. I saw the gray-green figures dropping like ninepins bowled
over by some unseen thrower. But more gray-green ligures emerged
from the rear, and the advance continued.
The Germans went forward at the double quick. The French artille: v
continued destructive fire, but the onward rush was too rapid for any such
means tu stop it. The French infantry poured volley after volley into the
The Germans were advancing with about one yard distance between
men of the front line, but the Germans of the second line were immediately !
behin those of the first, so that as the foremost were shot down the men
of the second line were there in their right position and able to push
forward. The Germans of the third line wire exactly behind those of
the second, so that when the soldiers of th? second line were shot down,
those of the third took their place. So they advanced, line after line,
always in close formation, both from right to left and from van to rear.
The slaughter was truly terrible. Countle?? gray-green figures fell
and lay prostrate, while their comrades rushed unward to the same
telendos fate. But the French simply could not shoot them dead with
sufficient rapidity to stem the onslaught. The Germans succeeded in
advancing, and the French withdrew to avoid being overwhelmed by the
The Germans achieve wonderful results by these methods of fighting.
I am inclined to think it is not so much their courage as the discipline
which enables them to court death by these antiquated tactics. They
fght almost automatically and advance with machinelike precision, so
thorough is their training.
It is not strategy, not skill in handling weapons, not individual ligh.
ing qualities that have achieved the advance to Paris. It is the efficiency

Exposes German News Trick

London, Sept. 5.?Sir Valentine Chlrol, writing to "The Times" with
reference to Sir Edward Goschen's report to the Foreign Office on the activi?
ties of the German press bureau says:
"Upon a very Instructive instance of the perfidy of the German press

"It appears that copies of an 'Orange Book,' containing Russian official
documents published tn Petrograd after the outbreak of the war, luve
leached Berlin, though apparently none so tar have reached this country.
The one official document selected for republication is a telegram sent by
the Ciar to the Crown Prince of Servia on July 14-2?, the day after the
rejection of the Servian reply to the Austrian ultimatum and the withdrawal
of the Austrian Minister from Belgrade.
"The telegram is couched in very general and moderate terms and
merely give* Servia the assurance to which the Russian government had al
ttady given diplomatic expression through its representatives abroad, that
Russia would never remain indifferent to the fate of Servia, while expressing
at the ?ame time the Czar's conviction that the Servian government should
make every effort to assist the Russian government In promoting a solution
of the existing difficulties which would preserve the dignity of Servia und
avert the horrors of war.
