Linum von Sander, Who Was in Supreme Conininnd of OHoinniiH, Is Hoplacod. Special Cable Detpateli to Tiiz Six, Tendon, Auk. 11. The Allies have icrcntly landed fiO.000 fresh trooiw on the Galllpoll Peninsula, according to Constantinople advices. From other sources It Is learned that tho entente Powers are preparing to rejuvenate their offensive there, probably on a larger scale than at nny time before. An Athens despatch says that Oen. LI ma n von Sanders, who has been dl tectlng the Turkish operation since the nlllfd Invasion began, has been recalled to Htrlln and will be superseded by the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg. This news would scarcely Indicate that the Germnn General Staff has been entirely satisfied with the conduct of operations at the Dardanelles, although It Is Just possible that Gen. von Sanders has been forced to relinquish his duties because of a wound which he was reported to have received a month ago. Gen. Sir Ian Hamilton, commanding the land forces at the Dardanelles, makes the following report: Severe righting took place on the Galllpoll Peninsula yesterday, mainly In the Ansae zone. Some of the north positions were occupied In slightly varied places. The general result Is that t: i area held at Ansec has been nearly trebled owing chiefly to the gal lantry and dash of the Australian and New Zealand urmy corps. IThe Anzac region is the territory In which the Australians and New Zea landers are righting. The name has been coined from the first letters of the words Ausira Australian and New Zealand Army cJotds i No further progress has been made to the north. The troops have In flicted heavy losses on the enemy. The French battleship St. Louis Is reported to have put five of the six guns of 'an Asiatic battery out of ac tion. A private telegram from Constant! nople says that a great offensive move ment was begun by the Allies on the evening of August tl, after relative quiet for ten days. Attacks were made by both wings with extensive Infantry and artillery reen forcements. The Turks, It Is asserted, after bitter fighting gained advantages, Especially near Sedd-el-llahr, where heavy losses were Inflicted on the Eng lish. The Turks capture.) a few trenches, at that point, hater 1,000 Kngllih dead were counted from the Turkish positions. The Turks, says the message, captured six officers and 104 men. The Allies lanleU troops on Huvla Hay, apparently with the Intention of attacking the Turks from the rear. I'n expcteI opposition was encountered, however, and the oiwratlons there were not successful. Fighting was still con tinuing on August S, with the Turks having the advantage. The fact that part of the new allied army, landed on last waiuruay. was put ashore at Karachall. on the north coast of the Gulf of Haros, seems to Indicate the Inauguration of a new camjalgn against the Turks. This place Is north of Hulalr and probably means that a flanking move ment against the Turkish positions there Is to be launched. Home time ago the Allies made an attempt to throw a line across the peninsula In this vicinity, but were not successful. Such an operation. If carried out. would effectively cut off the mainland communications with Con stantinople, although it would of course still leave the Asiatic side open for the transportation of supplies. A delayed despatch from Constantino ple, arriving by way of Herlln, says that some of tne forces landed on Saturday were annihilated by the Turks, who had anticipated the attempt and were well prepared. Knver Pasha, the Turkish Minister of War, Issued a statement In which he as serted that the allied forces iiad been repulsed everywhere during the landing operations and that the toll In lives lost was very considerable. He says that the Turks arc numerically superior to the Allies on the peninsula and indloateu that little apprehension Is felt by the Turks over the general situation. There are two Dukes of Mecklenburg, one the Grand Duke Frederick Francis of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. the othtr the Grand Duke Adolph Frederick of Meek-Unburg-Strelltz.

The German Admiralty reimrts that on the nluhl of August 9-10 German I airships Attacked fortified places and J harbors on the east coast of England. In spite of strong d feme by Hrltlsh warships on tliu Thames and at the I.ondoii docks, as well as from torpedo boats at a point near Harwich, bombs were dropped with telling effect, It Is said. Important constructions on the llumber were attacked also. The airships returned, the report states, after a successful expedition. This Is the first Intimation that the Zeppelins which raided England Tues day night had approached London. Tho reports of the raid passed by the Hrltlsh censor said simply that the cast coast hud been bombarded ami that thirteen persons were killed and a number wounded. The Hrltlsh Government nnnounced nt the time of the last previous airship raid on Loudon that the locations of airship attacks would not necessarily be announced by the Prvss Hurcnu.
