Some news has been brought down
from Antwerp that makes it tnmmm

Germans Prepare
To Take Maubeuge
FRVSSKLS, September .*, .'-;;.? ,
Did not get off to Antwerp to-day,
I ut hope to make. it by to-morrow
noon. There waa too much going on, ;
but arrangements are being made
for a laitser-posser, etc., and I an
ticipate no trouble beyond being shot
or made prisoner.
Gherardi fAmerican Naval At
tacht at Berlin) came in this morn*
inp for a call and then lcft for Mau?
beuge. which the Germans had ar
raaftd to capture during the day.
They seem-d very mra oi it, but I
would not bo surprised to see him
:ome sailing back without having
?een the surrender.
Baron von der Lanckcn, of thel
(
Foraifn Offlce in Berlin, callfld this j
moming. He is here to handie re?
lations with the Foreign Ministera

hid the care of German interests
they all come here f.rat, and our pofli

legation in the country. Wa have
