urally compel the- retirement of the
entire German force. There Is no piv
otal point In the extreme eastern part
of Krone for the army to swing upon,
so that we assume that tho Gorman
left will fall back to Mctz and tho
Oj Hit centre and right wlntr will move back
ward to Belgium. It Is my opinion
that the noxt big battlo will bo fought
on German and Belgian Boll and that
tho Germans will bo strictly upon tho
defensive. I would not bo surprised
to see Qermnny suing for peace by
the beginning of 1915."
Wounded French and British soldiers
arriving In this city report tremendous
fighting along tho line, especially at
tho western end, where tho Allies have
been making a supreme effort to shat
ter the Invaders' flank, the losses nre
frightful. Every trench that the Ger
mans have been compelled to give up
is full of dead. The French generals
telegraphed to General Galllenl, tho
military governor of Paris, to rush n
tralnload of chloride of lime. The Ger
man trenches will be filled with lime
and the battlefields will be sprinkled.
Losses of the Germans have been
appalling. Some unoillclal estimates
place the Invaders' losses In the battlo
of the Marne and the battle of the
Aisne at 500,000 killed, -ouuded and
prisoners. In the absence of olflclal
estimates only guesses can be made.
The eighteenth day of the big en
gagement found the German defensive
apparently much weaker and the Allies,
on account of the strength imparted by
fresh troops, have been able to occupy
more favorable positions. It Is said
that the French nnd British have been
nblo to capture a number of heavy
German guns, but have not been ablo
to turn them upon tho enemy, owing to
lack of suitable ammunition.
Crown Prlnco Itupprecht of Bavaria
Is reported to have been captured by
the French nnd to be a prisoner In
Nomcny. In order to liberate the
Crown Prlnco the Germans are making
vigorous assaults against Nomeny, it
Is said.
An officer, Just back from the front,
says that the French who are operat
ing in tho vicinity of Thlnucourt hnve
been meeting with success and that tho
GcrmanB In their rearward movement
lost n number of prisoners. One Ger
man corps is said to havo boon beaten
back in disorder nt that point, many
of the soldiers surrendering volun
tarily to the pursuers.
This corps Is believed to have been
the 60th, which Is known to hae been
operating in that district.
Thlaucourt Is 27 miles southeast of
Verdun and about 23 miles northwest
of Nancy.
Tho Germans have been making vig
orous efforts to retain their lines and
the troops stationed in the centre, near
Rheims, have been engaged In violent
operations which are believed to have
been a cover for the reported retreat of
General von Kluk.
If, as claimed, Von Kluk's army Is
giving way and there seems to be
nothing to militate against such a con
clusionthe centre would have to hold
Arm in order to prevent the French
from driving northward at Rheims and
cutting tho German right off from tho
balance of the army.

covers the fighting In both the eastern

The official line of battle as given out by the French War Office, but without date, so that changes may have occurred since the combatants occupied the
positions noted, has not changed markedly on the right, centre or left. As now lined up the French right runs from Pont-a-Mousson to St. Mihiel, then to
the heights of the Meuse southeast of Verdun, Where stiff fighting, including a bombardment with siege guns, has been going on for several days. In the centre,
between Verdun and Rheims, the line runs through Varennes, Souain, around Rheims to Berry-au-Bac and the heights north of the River Aisne which it
follows almost to Soissons and Compiegne. Across the Aisne and the Oise the line runs through Ribecourt (held by the French) to Lassigny (held by the
Germans), to Roye (held by the French), and Chaulnes (held by the Germans). To the north of the Sommc the line stretches between Albert and Combles.
Further north, unofficially, it is reported that the French are fighting an extended German line near Cambrai and the Belgian border.
