"Telegrams and letters are pouring in
from every section of the country. Indors

either tomorrow or Wednesday.
Senator Penrose's friends Insist that

Two sons of General de Castelnau, hern

today that a third had been wounded
Mine, de Castelnau took the news
"I had four sons in the field." she said.
"I shall not 6&e them again. My husband
alone will return. He has no right to
allow himself to be killed."
Bayonet charges by tho Germans In
another determined effort to pierce
the Allies' centre at Craonne have
been repulRed. The Invading Teutons
'hnd renewed the assault along the
entire 120-mlloe front ot the Alsno
battle line. The French nnd British
continue their attempt to outflnnk
General von lfluk's forces on the ex
treme German right wing.
t Belgium forces, harassing tho German
light flank, have interfered so with
operations against the Allies that
heavy artillery bns been rushed to
ward Antwerp to crush the nrmy.lcd
by King Albert. The Germans are
fortifying their line of retreat
through Belgium.
Two million men are engaged In the
third Important Gallclan buttle of
the war. The Russians, reinforced
by fresh troops and encouraged by
the evacuation of Jaroslaw, the In
vestment of Przeinysl on three sides,
the capture of Dublccko and other
smaller fortified position, nro engag
ing General Dankl's army and havo
continued successful In various en
gagements with his rearguard. In
dications point to Russian numeri
cal superiority on the field, as the
Southern Poland and Gallclan armies
are co-operating as a unit, and the
Austrlans have again been placed on
the defensive In order to protect the
line of communication to Cracow.
In Kast Prussia three German army
corps (120,000 men), under General
Hlndenburg, havo started an ag
gressive movement against Russian
Poland. Grodno, on the main line
between Warsaw and Petrograd, Is '
the Immediate objective. The de
feated Russian armies of Grodno and
Vllna have Joined to resist tho ad
vance. Montenegrin troops seized the town
of Rogbltza, 30 miles from Sarajevo,
the capital of Bosnia, nnd continued I
their march to within ten miles of '
the stronghold. The capture of
Sarajevo is confidently expected.
Berlin War Office reports successful
nttacks at several points along the
line and announces arrival of heavy
reinforcements. The French havo
been repulsed with heavy losses
wherever they assumed tho offen
sive, it was added. Further proof
of superiority of German artillery
is said to have been given In tho
engagement along the Aisne.
London War Office reports the arrival
of 100,000 men to save the wavering
army of von Kluk, with the Allies
continuing their flanking movement.
It Is admitted that tho casualties of
the allied forces are heavy, largely
because of the difficulty In locating
masked German batteries.
Vienna admits the evacuation of Jar
oslaw, which was burned before the
army left. The Russians have won
several engagements with the rear
guard of General Dankl's reinforced
army, which has again been put on
tne defensive. The evacuation of
Jaroslaw is ascribed to stateglc rea
sons, Involving aid to Przemysl and
protection of the line of communica
tion to Cracow, Reverses to Dankl's
army have caused gloom In Vienna,
where hope ran high t.,at Its Junc
tion with that ot Von Auffcnbcrg
would result In stopping the Russian
advance in Gallcla.
Petrograd War Office reports continued
success In the Galicla.i campaign,
Giodek, Sambor and Dublecko al
ready are taken, the capture of the
last named clearing the way to an
advance westward. Przeinysl. cap
ture of which Is prerequisite to mov
ing nest on Cracow and carrying the
aggressive into Silesia against Bres
lau and Posen, has been Invested.
Some of the Russian troops nro pro
ceeding westward. Investment of
Przemysl and evacuation of Jaroslaw
have left the Russians free to move
nearer Cracow, where the fiercest
Austrian resistance is expected.
British Admiralty reports both suc
cesses and reverses. The Carmanla
Craonne, Near Centre of Long Battle Line,
Is Point of Most Desperate Assault;

On German Right.

PARIS, Sept. 21.
German forces, In a series of desper
ate assaults In the region ot Craonne,
today resorted to the bayonet, but were
repulsed by the Allies with consider
able loss,
The Invaders' assaults were espe
cially violent east ot the Olse and north
, of the Atsne.
, At 3 o'clock this afternoon the War
I Office Issued this official statement:
j On our left wing, on the right
bank, of the Olse, we have advanced
to the heights of Lasslgny (west ot
Noyon). East of the Oisc and to
the north of the Alsne the Germans
have shown an lncreabe in activity.
Violent attacks turning Into bay
onet charges have been delivered
In the region of Craonne. The
enemy has been repulsed at all
points with considerable losses.
Around Rhcinis the enemy has
made no Infantry attack, but has
confined his efforts to bombarding
our front with his heavy pieces.
At the centre in Champagne and
on the west side of the Argonne,
beyond Souain, we have taken
Mesnll. Lcs Hurlus and Mashlgcs.
In the Wocvre region the enemy
holds the region of Thiancourt and
has bombarded Hnrron-Chateul.
On the right wing (Lorraine and
the VobRcs) there is no change.
The Germans are fortifying them
selves on Delmlot Hill, south of
The British troops had taken up posi
tions !n the Craonne region, and it Is sup
posed that the forces of Sir John French
are bearing the brunt of the attacks made
by the German infantry.
Sixteen words constituted an addi
tional official statement Issued at Bor
deaux this afternoon. It follows:
"We are confident that the Allies
hold a favorable position in the great
battle now progressing."
Today's announcement is the first
since the battle of the Alsno began
stating that either side had resorted to
tho bayonet. This indicates that 'on
this, tho ninth day of the battle, the
artillery duol which has been raging
for many days, resulted In a drawn
battle and that the other forces have
now been brought Into action.
The Allies havo thrown forward
heavy bodies ot men to engage the
attacking forces.
Activity of the French and British
around Solssonfe shows that the Allien
are continuing their Hanking move
ment ngainst the troops of General
on Kluk, who appears In Imminent
danger of being surrounded. Heavy
reinforcements have been rushed to
von Kluk's aid.

noncombatants have been killed. Tha
Hotel de Ville, tho museum, the sub

Only n. few walls of the famous ca
thedral, erected In tho Middle Ages, re

Both Solssons and Rhelms arc re
ported to be In flames. Solssons has
been under Are since fighting in tho
present battle began. Rheims has
been bombarded for S4 hours.
Farther to the east, near the Ar
gonne district, In the Meuse Valley
and the Vosgcs, fighting is less sovere,
but is still going on.
The destruction along the valley of
the Alsne is appalling. Wounded sol
diers, returned officers and prisoners
from the front describe the loss of llfo
as colossal. The stretch ot lowland
between the hills flanking the Alsne
is described as a valley of death and
Day and night the bombardment

It Is confidently believed by the
French military authorities in Paris
that the German positions can bo so
thoroughly weakened by tho cannonade
that the French and British will be
able to sweep the Germans from their
entrenchments at the point ot tho
bayonet, despite the reinforcements.
Already, it is snid, the French havo
been able to silence several of the Ger
man batteries at that point, compelling
them to take up new positions.
Tho effect of the German artillery
fire upon the French and British troops
has been terrible, It is admitted. Soma
of the heaviest German guns have been
shelling the nllled positions from a dis
tance ot seven miles. All are cleverly
masked. It is admitted thnt one of tho
largest guns, which has done great
damage, is so successfully concealed
that the Allies have been unable to
locate It.
So far the fighting has been a fierce
artillery duel, partaking of the quali
ties of a siege. Now, howeer, with
both sides beginning to use more and
more infantry, tho fighting should bo
near its end. The present week should
see the tide of victory and defeat flow
ing in clearly marked channels.

taking the offensive movement in an
effort to pierce the French and British
lines, or whether the Allies will bo abla
