In the main the effect of aerial bombardments has been far less than was expected. Damage in Paris ha3 been trifling, and there has
been complete absence of panic among the people. As a scout, the aeroplane seems to render its most effective service.
Here a more determined assault has been made by the Germans from the air than at Paris. Nevertheless, reports agree that
aerial assaults fail to inflict damage enough to be a factor in war. This form of attack amounts, usually, to murder

ANTWERP, by way of Paris, Sept. 14.
Russian troops have boen landod at
Ostend to reinforce the allied French and
British forces in France. They are
marching southeast from Ostend to at
tack tho right wings of the German
army of invasion.
Tho number of Russians landed on the
coast Is variously estimated at from 170,
000 to 300,000 men.
(Tho movement of this force of -Hui-'
slans undoubtedly explains the rapid re
treat of the German right wing and the
sending of a new German army to Franco
by way of Belgium.)
The Russians that arrived at Ostend
came irom i-ngianu wnttner they were.
brought by the liners Aqultanta and
Oceanic and the Union Castlo (ieet from
Archangel. They Included Cossacks and
Infantry, part of the best fighters of tho
Kusslan nrmy.

War Office Claims Com
plete Triumph in Galicia.
PETROGRAD. Sept. 14.
An Austrian force of 200,000 has sur
rendered in Galicia, according to the lat
est report received from the scene of
fighting. (A Paris dispatch cunveys the
same news.)
Tho entlro Btrength of the Russian first
line troops waa In action rounding up tho
completely crushed Austrian army, which
endeavored to rally under the shadow of
tho fortress of Przemysl and nlong the
San River to a point north of Jnroslav.
It was officially stated hote today that
of the 690,000 Austrlana who comprise the
Austrian first line of troops 200,000 are
already prisoners of war. Tho entire
army of General Dankl has been dis
persed, and tho main armies of General
Mnrltz Von Auffenberg nnd Archduke
Francis Frederick, which havo been
heavily reinforced from German Bources,
hove suffered jfrtatly.
Thero was no diminution of the Rus
sian attack, under tho immediate di
rection of Grand Duko Nicholas tho as
sault being kept up. Strong Russian col
umns were sent down the territory be
tween tho San and tho Vistula Rivers
from tho north to attack tho Auetrlans
on the flank and pruvrnt furthr Ger
man rolnforcemonts reaching them. At
the same tlmo - the centra army, com
manded by General Rouzsky, Is driving
the main Austrian . forces before It from
the vicinity of Grodek.
Tho Russian General Staff .officially
Tho Austrian military strength Is
completely crushed. They are retreat
ing In the utmost disorder everywhere.
Rusilan cavalry are pursuing them,
and harassing them, while Russian
artillery has been posted at certain
points to cut off the retreat. So nre.
cipitnte Is the Austrian (light that they
are abandoning everything. Tho roads
aro strewn with rides and personal
equipment thrown away by fleeing
Austrlana who found that It hampered
tneir ntgnt. Artillery lias ncen mired
everywhere, and tho fact that traces
were cut and not unfastened shows
that the enemy is completely panic
stricken. Every high official here emphasizes the
fact that the Austrian campaign has com
pletely collapsed, and that the losses to
the dual empire are appalling.
Minister of War Sukhomllnoff today
gave out the following Interview In
"The Austrian nrmy is practically
crushed. Its centre Is offering ilrtperato
resistance, but lth the fresh troops that
have rerched General Ruzsky he will bo
nblo to overwhelm it and clear tho way
for an advance Into Silesia, which is the
direct route to Berlin.
"Ily tho retirement of the Russian
troops In southeastern Prussia, wo have
drawn a large German nrmy Into a posl-
Hon where It will be unable to lender
help to Ureslau or Posen."
Though the chief aim of the Russian
Geneial Staff lias been the smashing of
tho Austrian aimy and the opening of tho
direct route to Hcrlln, It Is possible that
after an Investment of Cracow, General
Iirouslloff will advance ait army against
The War Summary
Tho German retreat ln Franco has bo
come virtually a general rout, the
rally of their armies ln the region
of the Areonne belnp again repelled.
The German Crown Prlnco Is still
stubornly resisting the allies. Tho
armies of Generals von Klulc and von
Buelow aro retiring from the terri
tory where tho fiercest fighting of
the war took place, abandoning the
strategic positions gained through
great loss of life. The allies are on
the offensive nir.ng.rhe re line.
Paris and London, long ln gloom over
tho successes of tho Germans, today
rojoico In victory. "Unparalleled In
extent and intensity," wires Joffre,
commander of the allies, to the peo
plo of Franco In describing tho Ger
man defeat. City after city which
Berlin shouted to tho world when
they fell before tho Invaders have
Valenciennes, Amiens, Lille, Lunevllle.
Rhclms, St. Die, Raon and a score of
cities, where thousands of Germans
laid down their lives that the flag
might wave over tho Hote do Vllles,
havo again been taken by the French.
To tho region of the Argonne tho rem
nants of tho six German armies are
moving with all the speed possible to
the fatigued soldiers. At this point
alono rests tho salvation of German
arms In France. The allies are con
fident of victory. Tho flight con
tinues. Tho British and French have crossed
the Alsne, tho allies' centre is north
of the Marne, while in tho east St
Die has fallen. Toward tho Valley of
the Mouse, the laBt outlet into Ger
many, the allies are pressing the Ger
mans. In Belgium the Invaders havo been
moro successful today, pushing back
tho Antwerp army to the city fortlfl
entlons. Other reports, however,
state that Brussels will be retuken by
the army of King Albert and that the
country will bo freed from the enemy
within a few days. Meanwhile, Rus
sian reinforcements for the allies aro
landing nt Ostend.
In Austria tho Russians are moving
toward Vienna. Panic reigns In the
capital. Tho doom of the dual mon
archy seems Inevitable, as tho wholo
army of the north has been crushed.
Two hundred thousand prisoners have
been taken, the Carpathians crossed
and all roads cleared to the Invaders.
Servia on the south is moving toward
Budapest. A bridge has been erected
across tho Save.
Germany reports sue esses in eastern
Prussia. The army at Koenlirsberir
apparently hns checked the Russians.
Petrograd, however, maintains that
success attends thi Russian army.
Italy is reported to have sent troops
to Albania. Her participation in the
war is daily expected In diplomatic
France: General Joffre reports a
general victory for the allies nrmy.
Tho retrent of tho German army has
become a general rout: With the ex
ception of tho stubborn resistance
made by tho troops under the German
Crown Prince, In tho vicinity of tho
forest of Argonno, tho entire line has
been broken. Generally believed that
the Germans aro retreating to make
a ilnal stand in the valley of tho
Meuse. Moro than 500,000 fresh sol
diers are held ln Paris to bo sent
agnlnst the Germans should the armies
succeed In concentrating.
Germany: Berlin is in gloom. Pop
ulace Is demanding news from Oov

has been relieved by announcement
that Koenlgsberg Is safe, pessimism
reigns icgardlng the Flench invasion.

Austria: Vienna ln panic. Austrian

"Tho German armies of invasion

with rapidity and In disorder every

sued hero by General Galllenl, the Mil
itary Governor of Paris, on authority
from tho "War Department at Bordeaux,
nt 3 o'clock this afternoon.
The statement says that the Gor
mnns had prepared a lino of defenses
north of the Alsno nnd in the vicinity
of Rheims, whero they had attempted
to rally their forces and make a stand,
but that the overwhelming strength of
the French pursuit forced them again
to retire.
The Germans have evacuated Am.
lens, retreating in tho direction of
Peronno and St. Quentin.
From Xancy to the Vosges the re
treat is general. Tho French territory
In this vicinity is now totally evacuated.
From the btubborn reststanco of tho
army under the German Crgwn Princo
at the southern end of the region of
the forest of tho Art;onno, which was
tho last to give way before the tre
mendous pressure of tho French, It Is
jrobahlo that the r.et great battle will
take place lu that region.
The allies have continuo - pusi, for.
ward their advance columns and have
reoccupied a score of towns previously
cupturcd by the Germans.
Moro than WO.MO fresh troops of the

The Germans have retired north and
