killed.
The report says that German
and French air craft have been
flying just over the frontier
wince yesterday morning. The
Germans are using the big Zep
pelin type dirigibles, while aeroplanes are employed by the
French.
Roland Garros, the Frenchillier, sighted a Germandirigible
on the French side of the border line near Nancy. The French
pilot drove his machine straight at the dirigible, which was
manned by twenty-live soldiers, and dashed against the gas bag.
The dirigible was wrecked and all aboard as well as Garros
were dashed to death. It is believed that the Frenchman deliber
ately sacrificed himself to deal destruction to the Germans.

entered the independent Grand Duchy of Luxemburg in
the night, seizing the railroad and, passing on into French
territory attacked the French second class fortified town
of Longwy, nenr the Belgian border. Reports of subse
quent events arc vague and contradictory, some saying
that Longwy was captured without resistance and others
that there was stubborn fighting there. The other in

heavy losses. Germany declined to make a definite reply

colonies in all pnrts of the world against attack. The Brit
ish Cabinet held a meeting last night at which it was ex
pected that tho question of war or peace would be de
cided. London expected that the decision would be for
war in view of Germany's refusal to commit herself re
garding the neutrality of Belgium. London heard that
there was heavy cannonading going on in the North Sea.

Lonpon, Aite. 2. An olltcial telegram
wns received here at 3;30 o'clock: an-
nounelnc thnt the Oermnn Invasion of
rrunco hnd begun nnd that 20.n0 Ger
man troops bad crossed the frontier nt
Clrey, n French vIIIokh about half way
between Nnncy nnd StrassbittT. They
were repulsed with heavy losses, ac
cording to reports.
A .second despatch received here
shortly after 4 o'clock says that n Ger
man force, which crossed Luxemburg
by the railway, which was seized before
daylight this morning, mnrehrd on the
Krench town of Ionswy. on tho Franco
Delglan frontier. Lonswy. which la
about forty miles northwest of Mctz,
was seized with little resistance.
Longwy Is n fortified town of 10,000
inhabitants overlooklnn tho Chlcrs, a
branch of tho Meuse, nnd is closo to tho
IloMan nnd Luxemburg borders. Tho
upper town, which is tho part of mili
tary importance, Is on a hill nearly 100
feet nbovo thn Luxemburg road nnd
commands it and Is strengthened by nn
enceinte and a few outlyln fortifica
tions. Tho town has belonsed to Franco
sine 1678. hut has been captured three
tlmca by the Prussians in 17P2, 181C
and 1871. Although the prrisott on a
peace footing Is fmull, tho upper town
hns accommodations for 6,000 men and
S00 horses, nnd It may bo presumod thnt
the garrison has been raised at least to
this footing In view of the strained rela
tions of tho last few days preceding the
outbreak of hostilities.
H was admitted here this nfternoon
eeml.ofliclnlly thnt tho Hrttlh Govern,
mcnt conrlders Gcrmnny's Invasion of
Luxemburg a violation of tho Treaty ot
army coi'iw across the frontier of Alsace-Lorraine.
Although Franco had
knowledge of this move r.he persisted In
her policy of allowing Germany to take
the initiative in hostilities.
The belief is that this position was
taken bocauec of Great Britain's atti
tude. Had Franco been tho aggressor there
is some probability that Htigluud might
not enter the war. Under tho treaties,
however, with Germany attacking
France, there Is little left for Great
Krltain to do but to support her ntlj
It Is nxpected that France will declare
war within a few hours as a result of
tho howtflo ntovo against her by Ger
many in violating tho neutrality of
Luxemburg, Tho belief in general In
Paris that tho War Council already
has decided to tight, but Is withholding
tho proclamation for reasons of strategy
until her mobilisation lei complotcd. It
w-ns announced yesterday that thn
mobilisation would bo oomplote at 11.51
o'clock to-night.
Tho mobilization order and the be'if
thai war already In virtually on huvn
brought a feeling of relief to 'he Frcii. b
people, for It has ended tho terrible
strain and uncertainty of tlir last f w
days when, although there ocemcd to bo
no cscapo from war, no one knew for
certain whether It wan to bo war or
peace and there was a fcelln tha. Ger
many, In whose hands lay tho decision
erf the, nuentlon, was preparing to get an
advantage if possible.
Demonstrations by the score were
held throughout last night in nil th
cities nnd towns of tho republic. Torch
light processions and tho singing of lb
".Marseillaise" and "Lo Depart da
I'Armce" were features of the demon
strations. Nnncy despatches say that a French
