'Tho Germans had mounted heavy slego guns upon tho roofs of factories outside the town. How they ever lift ed thoso ponderous cannon to tho top of tho buildings Is more than I can see. Tho buildings were first strengthened with supports and tho roofs wero cov ered with a layer of strong cement, two feet thick. This formed tho baso for tho guns. "It was discovered after tho fall of Maubotigo that -there had been a num ber of German spies In tho city dur ing the slego." A son of Field Marshal Count von Moltke, of tho German army, was killed In tho fighting near Esternay, it was stated in dispatches received by tho War OITlce today.

Tho War Office, In its official state ment issued today, declares that tho Germans aro now bombarding the en tire chain of tho Mouse fortifications that extend from Verdun to Toul Among tho fortresses which are under attack, and whoso reduction is now believed certain, aro Troyon, Les Pa rodies, Camp Des Romans, Llouvllle, Commorcy and Gironvlllo. It is stated that the great slego guns, with which Maubeuge, Liege and Na mur were demolished, are being used with telling effect here, and that they are slowly battering the French fort resses to pieces. Tho War Office also announces that the attempt of the Allies to envelop the army of General von Kluk on the extreme right of tho German lino has failed. An earlier statement said. Despite the hardships that the 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 Emperor and the Crown Prince are In good health. The Emperor is in touch with the entire situation. In tho eastern part tho Russian forces took rofugo behind the fort ress of Kovno. This was shelled by our trocvps. In tho Voges cold weather has followed tho hard rains and thcro has been a heavy fall of snow. It also was announced today that re ports from tho oastorn front stated the Russians wero using dum-dum bulleti. An Investigation Is to be conducted, and Russian officers accused of having violated the international laws relating to warfare will bo shot. Newspapers print stories from eye witnesses, stating that tho Cathedral at Rhelms was only slightly damaged. Tho German press calls attention to the fact that tho British troops attack ing Delhi, in 1S5T, did not attempt to prevent damage to tho famous Indian monuments, and that the leader of the Garlbaldlans besieging Rome threat ened to bombard the Vatican. Tho Wolff Xcts Agency publishes a statement giving alleged details of out rages committed by French military bicyclists in chnrgo of an officer on wounded German soldiers in two Red Cross motor cars near Bcthenecourt. Tho agency said that only two suc ceeded in effecting their escape, the rest being killed and robbed by tho bicyclists The German press says that this is another proof of the barbarious treat ment that wounded Germans ore re ceiving at the hands of .the French.

The admission came from an attache of the French War Office. General Desseux, the commandant nt Maubeuge. is reported to have been badly wounded. (The capture of Maubeuge and -10,-000 prisoners was officially announced at Berlin on September 9. This dis patch Is the first from Bordeaux con firming the Berlin statement.)

He s,ald, however, that the termination of the great battle now raging -.ould not bo expected for several davs. Prepauitions aro being made for a winter catnpaign.

Up to the present, it is stated, the French lines have held firm. The losses on both sides aro 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 bean able either to collect its dead or gather Us Injured. The fighting Is also desperate on thq extreme left, although the Allies hav not been able to make any very large gains and are still unablo to drive the Germans from the Alsne-Oise triangle. Both sides are reinforcing. The Ger mans have combed all of their interior fortifications for men to aid them in the present conflict, while the entire French second line, and all the men who can be spared from the army of the defense of Parii, are now at tho front.

Tho German army under von Kluk was unablo to halt its steady retire ment today. The determined efforts which the German aro preparing to make to cap ture Antwerp at any cost are believed here to he a part of a plan of tho Kaiser to withdraw from liis position in France to a defense line along the Germun border, with the Rhine forts as his bases.

"Germany's twofold purpose In striv ing to creato dlssonslon in India Is first to give troublo to England, which might cost her victory in tho war; second, to seize India as part of the Kaiser's dream of world empire.
