It Is known that for some time there
has been considerable difference of opin
ion between the British nnd French lead
ers, arising out of the retreat of the at
lles after the battle of Charleroi. So
acute did the feeling become between tho
tno leaders that I.ord Kitchener deemed
fc necessarv to Intervene personally.

been broken ln falling from a car, said
Gasklll. The following day he presented
a claim to the company for $1500. The

cording to Gasklll. Marter collected JS00
frm the Conorete. Steel. Mason and Con
struction Company, for whom he worked
on tho New York subway. In this case
he said he was injured by a plank falling
on him.
Later, It Is eald, he threw himself from

Visit to Colonel 3loosevelt Merely
Social, He Says.
OYSTER BAY, Bept. 14. Oscar Straus,
who haa been active for the paBt few days
for peace by mediation, called at Oyster
Bay with Mrs. Straus, and had luncheon
with Colonel and Mrs. Roosevelt.
While Mr. Straus insisted that his visit
was entirely social, the fact that he called
upon tho Colonel ln ths thick of Mr.
Straus' activities for peace, caused com
ment. "My visit to Sagamore Hill Is simply
and purely a social one. Mr. Straus and
myself are old friends of Colonel and
Mrs. Roosevelt," said Mr. Straus.
Asked If the call did not have some
relations with Mr. Straus' apparent efforts
within the past few days, and was made
In an effort to enlist the former President
. In tho cause of peace mediation, h re
plied:
"Absolutely not. I am not here for that
purpose."
Mr Straus when asked If, Irrespective of
his vl3it, It could be nssumed he was try
ing to get Mt Roosevelt to enter the peace
movement, he Insisted It was not fair to
make any such Inference. Ho simply re
fused to dlRCUSs It.
Colonel Roosevelt also refused to dis
cuss the Straus visit
The Kaiser has at various times shown
his friendship for Colonel Roosevelt by
sending him letters, autographed books
and photos.
BRITISH AVIATION CORPS
USED FOR SCOUT DUTY
TROLLEY CAR STRAYS
FROM STRAIGHT PATH
But General Trench Narrates One In
stance of Deadly Bomb Dropping.
LONDON. Sept. 14. General French In
reporting to the War Ofllce today ex
plained that ho had not been using the
British aviation corps an a general propo
sition for bomb dropping, thn members
being needed chiefly for the collection of
information.
Ho reported one night raid on a Ger
man bivouac, however, which was suc
cessful. An aviator dropped a petrol
i bomb which struck an ammunition wagon
that exploded killing fifteen.
Couldn't Run It and Talk at Same
Time, Says Crew.
A trolley car ran backward on Spruce
street from 31th to the great surprise of
the residents of that street thlB morn
ing. The car was loaded with passengers
and they appeared Indignant. The mo
tonman nrd conductor explained that
they couldn't run the car and talk at
tho same time, so tho riders had to
grit their teeth and wait. The car that
back elided was a Subway Angora
numbered 24-20.
This ls how it happened. Th car Is
supposed to turn from Spruce street to
Woodland avenue at 37th. But thl3
morning the car kept on at normal
speed to 34th street.
Passengers who had been riding on this
line for months were sonwwhnt aston
ished therefore when they were greeted
with a change of scenery. Houston Hall
and other nice buildings pnscd beforo
thnm and then some persons asked tho
conductor where they were going. He
Informed them that the car was on tho
waj to the Market street subway. Somo
one Informed him that It would be a dif
ficult feat of navigation to roach thero
by the route the car was taking. Then
tho conductor stopped the car and held
a conference with the motorman. He
was also somewhat puzzled.
Meanwhile there was a deluge of sug
gestions and opinions. It wns finally
decided to run tho car back to Thlrty
Beventh street In order not to mpet other
cars from the opposite direction.
After reaching there tho car finally
managed to find the subway by way of
Woodland avenue and Market street.

nortDEAUX, Sept. 14.
The plan of tho German gcnoral iitaff la
completely dfcated. When the gnllant
Belglnn nrmy retarded tho progress of
the German advanco for twelve days, the
Kalier persisted in hla orlirinal pUn of
rushing on to Pari from the north, which
showed n striking lack of resource nnd
forcdirnt on the port of tha Kaiser and
his advisers They nevet seemed to take
Into account the fact that If onco thai
German forces arrived before Paris thay
would be far removed from the bae ot
operations, with Infuriated people) ln their
rear, and thnt they then had reaoh4
only ths beginning of a new campaign,
now. Every evening brinm him news of
further retreating, although retreating
Is scaroely & strong enough term to use.
In their backward movement the German
generals have been abandoning prisoners,
war materials and official papers.
"What seems prodigious to me la tha
fact that our troopn, after auporhuxnaja
effort, have boen able to turn tho aoemy's
retreat Into a rout. At first I dared not
hope that the pursuit would continue te

"It certainly is fine that we have cm

pluck the fruits of Its incalculable efforts.
Very important, too, la the faot that the
