Today's statement praised the great
bravery shown by the troops of tho
Allies. It follows:
Tho enemy shows signs of'weak
enlng as a result of his continued
attempts to capture our positions.
- On the contrary, our troops, fight

Great valor has been shown by

been as repeatedly repulsed.

tion It Is added that Verdun has been
Isolated. This strongly fortified position
Is now being bombarded from two
sides by tho German heavy siege artil
lery and every effort Is being made
to take It.
It Is understood that the present
movement has for its object tho sepa
ration of the allied armies, and espe
cially tho piercing of their centre.
This movement Is slowly but surely
succeeding, it is declared.
GERMAN LINES STAGGERING,
IS LONDON STATEMENT
LONDON, Sept. 22.
That the German lines arc stagger
ing under the continued hammering of
the Allies and that they nro slowly
crumbling at Important integral points
is the consensus of opinion of tho Brit
ish military experts who are familiar
with the exact situation at the front.
It has been admitted from the out
set that the present battle of the Alano,
now well in Its second week, was a
contest of endurance. Despite the
splendid Intrenchments of tho Ger
mans, It has been instated that they
have suffered greater losses than the
Allies, mainly because of their massed
formation tactics, which present such
magnificent targets for the opposition.
The failure of the German rein
forcements sent to aid General von
Kluk to break down the British
French opposition emphasized, the ex
perts say, the fact that tho Germans
were at the "end of their string." To
day this belief Is confirmed by the an
nouncement that the German right
wing Is being pushed back at a rate of
nearly four miles a day. ThH speed Is
expected to be accelerated now that
the Germans have been driven from
their strongest trenches.
The Times' military expert declare)
that the German extreme right, which
resembles a fishhook, is being sub
jected to great pressure nt its most
northerly point. IIo fays that the new
allied line extends from Localolet to
Boisel to Lassigny, to Loyon, to
Craonne, to Rhelm"1, to Pouain. to
Montfaucon, to Etaln, to I'ont-a-Mous-fton,
to Saint Die. The British troops,
ho says, remain on the extreme loft,
with only one French army on their
north and west.
A number of the papers print an un
confirmed rumor that General von
Kluk has been compelled to withdraw
his army headquarters to Mons in Bol
gium. The War Bureau, however, has no
knowledge of any such movement and
Is Inclined to consider it premature.
Much attention is being paid to a re
port that the Germans have prohibited
Dutch shipping traversing the Rhine.
Heretofore, Dutch steamships have
been permitted to come up the Rhine
into German territory. The British
military experts declare this action Is
naturally due to the fact that the Ger
mans nro strongly fortlfjlng their
Rhine defences preparatory for a final
stand there, and that, of necessity,
they are keeping all curious eyes from
beholding their work.
It Is declared by all of tho military
experts hrre that the most credit to
tho Allies can be attributed to the
weight of their bayonet charges. Tho
British and tho French Algerian troops
have terrorized the enemy by tho force
of theso attacks. They carry a bayo
net blnde longer than that of the Ger
mans, and they havo shown an eager
ness to resort to cold steel that simply
has terrified tho German outposts.

BORDEAUX, Sept. 22.
Minister of War Millerand an
nounced today that tho oxtremo right
wing of the Germans hail given way,
that tho French had completed tholr
line, bringing n steel wall up against
the German centre and that the Allies
were malting constant progress.
Ho renamed tho battle of tho Aisno
the "battle of two rivers," because of
the fact that it Is now raging along
the Olse ai well as the Alsno. Ho be.
lleves that the result will not be deft,
nltely known for several days, but has
no doubt that tho decision In this great
death grapplo will go to tho Allies.
"It Is probable that the great battle
of two rivers, which is being fought
with unparalleled fury, will continue
for several days," he said, "although
tho Allies are making constant prog
ress. A new step In our advance on
the extromo left wing Is marked by
its arrival at Lnasigny, ten miles west
of Noyon. This movement Is of ex
tromo importance. That is why th
Craonne region has been the centre of
violent conflicts and bayonet charges
"The Germans are making desperate
efforts to diminish the pressure on
their extreme right wing, hut have,
nevertheless, been forced to give way
"By completing cur lines from Al
eaeo to the Argonne forest, wo havo
deprived the German centro between
Rhomis and Fouain of its scope of

ROME, Sept. 22.
The AiiHtrlans nre endeavoring to find
scapegoats for tholr lecent debacles. It
is leported In Vienna that tho Austrian
Field Slnrshal Vodinowskl, who was of
Slav origin and was accused of com
municating scciet Intelligence to tho
Russians in Gallcia, was tiled by court
murtlal and summarily shot.
At the front, rield Marshal Foielch,
who commanded an Austtlnn cavaliy
division which was cut up by tho Rus
slans, shot himself after belli,- cashleied
for needlessly exposing his troops.
Tho belief is growing in ofllclal circles
here that the Austrian tcvei-3cs In

about by exact knowledge held by tho

TOTROGRAD, Sept. a
Such success as has come to th(j r,,,,,
slan armies ngalnst tho Germans In Ea!
Prussia has proved a welcome surprlja
to many of tho veteran troops of u,J
Czar who, at tho beginning of tho great
European wnr, stilt smarted from tin
effects of their defeats by the Japanese
There hns been a change In the condl.
tlon of things on tho Russo-acrman
frontier that might surprise even jttt-t
sons familiar with tho Russian plan tt
campaign. Ono Russian ofllcer at least
who may be regarded as a reliable a
Ihorltjs hnn been much surprised by tha
rapid progress of tho Russian advance.
Originally five Russian army corps
wero oidcrcd to the Austrian frontier
for the purpose of delaying tho Austrian
advance If It should bo directed against
thnt line. However, tho Russian Gen
crnl Staff was quite convinced that tha
main attack would aim at Warsaw
through roland, and to meet that.aU
tack two new army corps were sent for
ward, and nt tho same tlmo tho cavalry,
on the left flank (Chotln and Klelce),
Tho Austrian Invading army met only
weak Apposition In Poland, and the twii
Russian corps appeared to retire.
Suddenly the Russian cavalry in tha
South, that Is to say, on tho left wlngy
based on Klelce, took tho offensive. Ai
tho samo tlmo tho Russian army wni
ready to pour her enormous masses Intii
Prussia from tho northeast frontier. (
Tho great Russian mobilization wan
ready several days beforo Germany haiL
expected, and Just at the moment wheru
Germany should have mado her decisive
blow at Trance and been able to spara
her first lino troops for meeting tho Prus-J
slan attack. This plan became a failure'..
Now, Russia has moro than two and
one-half million troops In the north-east!
corner of Prussia alone, nnd the Cosp.iely
cavalnry number 130,000, in seven battlo
divisions. The German defence against
this avalanche consists of second lino
leservists, not more than 800,000 strong,,
already retiring to the row of forts along
tho Vistula between Konlgsberg, Marien
burg, and Torn.
However, this line will bo difficult to
forco by an Invading army, it will be
moro dlfllcult for the reservist army,
which has only 310 guns and about CO
Maxim guns, to elofend.
The effect of this heavy Russian at
tack is noticeable everywhere in the ease
of Prussia, and over Berlin is a cloud of
stern pressure. People are leaving theltj
homes In fright of tho Cossack hordes,
who are spreading with nn enormous
