Issued here at noon, declares that the French Troops' attempt to envelop General x'on Ivluk's army has resulted In failure. Tho statement Is. On tho right wing of tho German western army, operating on the op posite side of the Olse, the efforts of the Trench at Investment have met no success No decisive or heavy fighting has occurred in the Argonne region. An earlier statement said Despite tho hardships that tho troops have undergone, because of bad weather In both the eastern and western theatres of war, their enthusiasm is undiminished. They are fighting for their Emperor, who Is confident of success through their efforts It Is reported from field head quarters that a number of changes in command have been made neces sary The Kmporor and the Crown Trince are In good health Tho Emperor Is in touch with the entire situation. In the eastern part the Russian forces took refuge behind tho fort ress of Kovno This was shelled by our troop0 In the Vosges cold weather has followed the hard rains nnd there has been n. heavy fall of snow.

CAPTURE OF MAUBEUGE UNOFFICIALLY ADMITTED BORDEAUX Sept. 24. It was unofflciallj admitted here to day that the Germans had captured Maubeuge. The admission came from an attache of the French War Office. General Desseux. the commandant at Maubeuge. is reported to hae been badly wounded. (The capture of Maubeuge and 40, 000 prisoners was officials announced at Berlin on September 9.

Sept. 24. -That the Germans are making a su preme effort to break through the French centre between Argonne and the Meuse is admitted at the War Of fice. It is stated that for the last 45 hours the fighting has been continuous night and day. The Germans, heavily reinforced, clearly are trying to force the with drawal of part of the French left, which continues to push the army of General von Kluk backward, although very slowly. Up to the present, it is stated, the French lines have held Arm. The losses on both sides are enor mous, eclipsing anything in the war to date. The entire battleground at this point is covered with dead and wound ed men, neither side having been able either to collect its dead or gather its Injured. The fighting is also desperate on the extreme left, although the Allies have not been able to make any very large gains and are still unable to drive the Germans from the Aisne-Oisa triangle Both sides are reinforcing The Ger mans have combed all of their interior fortifications for men to aid them m the present conflict, while the entire French second line, and all the men who can be spared from the army of the defense of Pans, are now at the front A significant note comes in the an nouncement that the w inter equipment for the British troop3 at the front al read is being transported to France This nvans there is to bo no let-up in the struggle The fighting will be pressed until a decision is reached The German right wing has been extended from Cambral by a screen of cavalry, which extends in an arc of a big circle north toward Arras and east to Mons. Back of this fringe of cavalry, with its bass at Mons, is the army of Gen eral von Boehm, In a position where it can advance to any point where the new extreme right may be threatened by the French. The German army under von Kluk was unable to halt its steady retire ment today. The determined efforts which the Germans are preparing to make to cap ture Antwerp at any cost are believed here to be a part of a plan o the Kaiser to withdraw from his position In France to a defense line along the German border, with the Rhine forts as his bases. The forts at Liege havo been rehabil itated by the Germans with the Idea of using them. Should a German de- I fense line be formed through Belgium. ! the possession of Antwerp would be of importance to either side.

The ' recent North Sea disaster is re garded as supporting the claims made by Admiral Sir Percy Scott In his reply to Lord Sydenham a few dajs prior to the opening of the European war. At the time Sir Percv, while not un derrating the value of the battleship or cruiser, urged an Immediate Increase in the number of submarines The latter, he contended, were of greater efficiency In maneuvers requiring speed and secrecy. He raid also that they would prove In valuable In attacks on commerce. The truth of his contention he sup ported by citing the success of the Jap anese in their late war, when, equipped with torpedoes inferior to those now In up. thev forced the Russian fleet to re tire to Port Arthur At tho time of his speech Sir Percv 's attitude was severelv criticised by em inent naval experts of England GERMAN SUBMARINE RETURNS UNDAMAGED Official Report Says TJ-0 Alone Sank British Cruisers, BERLIN, Sept 20 Offlclil announce ment was made today that the sub marine U-9 which, unaided, sank three nrltlsh cruisers In the North Fea, had returned to Its base undamaged In going to and returning from the scene of action the statement says, the submarine travelled i'Q miles As the base from which the U-9 set out is Fuppoeed to be Wilhelmshaven, the destruction of the British cruisers prob abU occurred near the British coast, north of Harwich.

RUSSIAN ADVANCE STEADY; AUSTRIANS RALLY ALONG VISTOK Heavy German Reinforce ments Aid in Attempt to Check Movement to Cracow. PETROGRAD, Sept. 24. Kalljlng their forces behind the Vlstok River, tho Auitrlans are giving battle to the advancing Russian troops along a curved lino extending from the foothills of the Carpathians east of Jnslo to Deblo on the Vlstok River, according to advices received at the War Office today. MKAVV LOSSES REPORTED. Supplementing previous announcements of the fall of Jaroslaw, the following statement was Issued at the Wnr Ofllco toda.v On September 21 tho Russian troops took by storm the fortification of Jnr iislaw on the right bank of the river San Thev took twentv cannon, even though the enemy offered heavy re sistance, and blew up tho bridge over the San. The Russian cavalry Is pursuing the retreating Austrian rear guard nnd Is Infllctlnfe heavy losses, although the Austrians destrojed many bridges. Everj day the number of prisoners nnd sebed cannons Increase. The de moralization of the. enomv la shown by tho pillaging nnd the panicky re trPnt. Prisoners assert that the ma jority oi tneir oniccrs are killed or missing nnd that the soldiers feel tho loss kconlv. The newly formed Rus sian regiments have covered them selves with glory, fighting side by side with the veterans. The Austrian troops have been rein forced by largo forces of Geimans, nnd the combined armies are offering a des perate resistance, hltt the TtllRalnna ara I advancing steadily, the General Staff states. It Is expected that a few days must elapse before a general battle ensues. The Russians are occupying Rzeszow as their base, and troops are being rushed to that point from Jarosl iw-, while the big siege guns are keeping up an un ceasing bombardment of Przemysl. PPXEMYSL INVESTMENT I OMPLETE That the Russian General Staff believes nn danger maj be antlclpaltd fmni tho garrison of Przemysl is shown by the rapid advance wetwanl from Jaroslaw. Thn investment of Przemsl Is complete and this Imp cut the Austrian army off from one of Its ni.iln supplv stations Terrific rainstorms are flooding the rivers of western GallcJa. according to a Breslau dlspntch, nnd the Russian army faces nn enormous task In getting to Cracow, which Is recognized to be their present objective. Manj bridges have been swept awav nnd a large part of the country turned Into a morass Reports received In Breslau from Aus trian sources state that the Russians have already suffered enormous losses, but that they are pouring troops into Gallcla to fill their ranks. Minister of Vvar bukhimllnoff declared todav that the advance of the Russians to the River Vlstok had effectually pre vented the Au'tro-Germin forces fiom making any attempt to relieve Przemysl. While our stead ndvance westward continues without Interruption, tho operations south of Przemsl are being directed to the capture of Chlrow, an important Junction point. This will give us control of the southern line leading to Cracow and the roads lead ing to Hungary. Our troops ale meetlpg with some resistance, but the enemy Is not strong enough to hold us back there. We already control KX) miles of railway In Gallcla, and. with the capture of Chl'ow, wc ehall have two-thirds of all the lines GERMAN REINFORCEMENTS. Although the fighting along the Vlstok indicates tho Austrians havo been strongly reinforced, the positions taken by tho Russian nrmie promise that the Austrians and Germans as well will be forced back to Cracow. Within a week I believe, the combined Austro-German forces will bo com pletely crushed. MARCH SMILES WHEN HE HEARS DEATH SENTENCE Convicted of Shmlng in Murder of Farm Manager.

U. "Germany mado a mistake about India as It did about Ireland, and anybody who counta on India to be falso to Eng land will come a cropper." In these words his Highness the Aga Khan, tho recognized temporal leader ot 60,000,000 of East Indian Mohammo. clans, sums up for the World corro. spondent the Indian Empire's statUB la the world's war. Tho Aga Khan haa directed tha Klioja Moslems, who alone number sev eral millions, and of whom ho la tha spiritual as well aa the temporal head, to pla'co their personal eorvlcos and ro sources at the disposal of the Govern, ment, and has volunteered to servo him self as a private In any regiment of Infantry of the Indian expeditionary force. Tho Aga Khan laughed heartily oyer tho suggestion that tho GermanlsUo propaganda might undermine tho loyalty of Great Britain's Indian subjects. Ha remarked smilingly: "Many of my fellow countrymen havo been In Africa and have seen tho Ger man administration In tho German East nnd Southwest African colonies. They know what Germanlzatlon of India would mean, and they know, too, that if Eng. land wcro driven out of India, Germany, should sho bo successful In this war, would step In. Tho thinking element among Indians of all classes realize that our country, divided as It Is Into hun dreds of principalities, each Inclined to be Jealous of tho others, could not hope to stand alone, even If British rule wero vv Ithdravvn. GERMAN PURPOSE KNOWN. "Germany's twofold purpose In striv ing to create dissension In India Is first to give trouble to England, which might cost her victory in the war; second, to seize India as part of the Kaiser's dream of world empire. "This scheme Is as well known to India as at Berlin. India will need no assistance from England to frustrate lt, because the Indians fully comprehend the peril of being crushed beneath the mailed fist of Prussian militarism." The Aga Khan's manner became mors grave as he continued: "After all, the one hope of India lies In the King and Emperor and his Gov ernment. There can be no united India until England has fllshed her work of knitting together Into one strong nation the confusing Jumble of races, religions and castes she has governed so suc cessfully for 150 ears. "An apt comparison Is Americm domination of the Philippines. But there exist now between England and India affections and sentiments arising from their long community of interests which are not yet found between Fili pinos and Americans. BLAMES GERMAN VIEWPOINT. "Such feeling I believe to be Incom prehensible to the Germans. It seems to me they totally lack a sense of pro portion, arising from a sympathetic un derstanding of the needs of another people. It Is Incomprehensible to them that Belgium should have resisted their advance Into France Apparently they fall utterly to understand the feeling that, for Instance, would actuate an American If an alien nation attempted to send an army through the United States to attack Canada. 'Personally, my antipathy Is not to ward the German people, who possess rrnny fine qualities, but against tha Prussian school of Bernhardis, Nletz sches and the Kaiser's General Staff a schoof designed basically for the crushing of liberalism and Independence of any kind, whother manifested In Germany or abroad " "Will Indian troops be able to stand against the German army, considering they have never before been permltteJ to fight white men?" "I think so " the Aga Khan replied with a quiet smile "If need bo there can be TW.OOO or ".ono.ono that wouldn't be a great number to offer from our 32u,lW,fino population No Despite tha effusions from Wllhelmstrasse, you may rest assured that there Is not the slight est doubt as to India's loyalty to Eng land " AUSTRIAN ARMY ENTRENCHED FOR NEXT GALICIAN BATTLE Vienna War Office Claims Success in Counter Attacks on Vlctula VIENNA Rcrlln and Amsteidam, Sept 21 Th- Auoti an tnops, in Gallcla having selected the battl ground upon which they will oppose the Russians are now on the offeiulve It was announced toda Iteavv fighting iB going on along a II le extend ng tiom the Vistula River la Piven'vsl. the ofllc nl statement sas, and ever attempt of the Russiaiw to break through this line lias been repuUcd Th' stuumeiit continues The Austrian armies directed b the able str4tei; of the General Staff, ara now In tne positions to which they vtre assigned and their counter at tacks against the Russians are stop ping the cnemv at all points With the left wing resting upon Cra cow ad the right upon Prems' and the centre stronglv Intrenched.
