Having compelled the Hermans to

sitions of tho invaders north of the
Aisnc niver, wliero additional forces
hnvc been sent to their assistance,
In order to jjlvo impetus to his ot
taci;, General Joffre pushed lieavy re
inforcements to tho front to support
tlio tired French and Knglish soldiers,
who havo been marching and fighting
for more than a week.
Olllclnl dispatches from the front say
that all !b going well with the allies and
that tlio attempts of the Germans to
break down tho French lines at points
believed to bo weak huve been re
pulsed. Fighting Is in progress, ranging
from skirmishing to combats of fu-
r
rious character, along a line which
reaches from a point east of St. Quen
tln eastward and southward along the
north bank of the River Aisne, through
the northern part of the forest of Ar
gonne, north of Verdun, thence south
ward and eastward on the east of the
Kiver Meuse past Metz.
According to Information contained
in official War Office statements is

man line of retirement seems to have 1
bWitchetl slightly toward tho southeast.
Upon their retreat the Germans have
been compelled to give up a number
of towns, the most important of which
aro La Fere, Crepy, Laon, Bralsne,
Vitry-les-Rhetms, Attigny. Bazan
court. Sillery, Eismes, St. Quentln,
Rhelms and Menhould, the former
headquurteis of the German Crown
Prince.
As no official word has been received
here to support tho rumors that Gen
eral von Kluk, commander or the ex
treme western wing of tho German
army, has been captured along with a
heavy section of his men. it Is now
assumed that the repnrt waa false.
Today the Germans hold strongly en
trenched positions In the low hills to
tho nrth of the Alsno Ulver. The
armies of qcneritl Von KlucH and Gen

It is admitted by tho military ex
perts that the new positions taken i.v
the Germans aro he strongen tip y
have yet held tn Franco. The condi
tions aro ideal from tho defensive point
of view, it Is stated, but confidence is
expressed that the admitted numerical
superiority of the French and British
forces wilt enable them to force tho
Germans back when the new battla
commences.
The German front has narrowed and
this will operate to the benefit of tho
allies. News from the allies left 13
anxiously awaited here. There tho
British and French, who have been
heavily reinforced, nro utempting op
erations that may result in still further
crumpling up of tho German right.
The relief of Fort Tryon Is likely to
have an important bearing on tho fata
of the German army. The German3
were investing Fort Tryon and the
neighboring forts between Toul and
Verdun with the object of opening a
way of retreat on their left.
The falluro of this plun means that
the French are masters of the valley
from Toul to Verdun. Therefore. Ntho
armies of the Crown Prince Frederick:

will have to go farther north ami at

On the left wing of the allies the en
tiro Anglo-French force is In contui-t
with the retiring invaders on the front
from the heights north of the River
Aisne eastward to a point north of
Rhelms.
The forward movement of tho alllei
between the forest of Argonno and tho
Meuse continues,. TI e pressure of the
allies has hud the 1 nvot of straighten
