HORRORSOFWAR
IN MARNE VALLEY
(Trampled Cornfields and!
Devastated Woods Filled
I With Enemy Dead
PESTILENCE IN THE AIR
Seven German Bridges
Wrecked Within Quarter Mile
on Dormans Waterfront
By WALTER DURANTY
Special Cable lo Evening Public Ledger
CoruHofit, S, Ij; A'rw Vorfc rimf To.
With tho French Armies, July 30.
1 spent all yesterday on the Mnmc
battlefield in the region of Dormans
and the villages across the Marne,
which the Germans were still occu
pying Sunday morning." It was a
vision of war In all its horrors.
Already In a four-mllo belt south
of the river houses were shattered,
roads shell-pocked and woods torn as
If by lightning. In wide patches,
trees and brushwood stood brown and
lifeless, blasted by poison gas. The
roadside was littered with German
ammunition cases and an occasional
fire-twisted skeleton of an automobile
truck. More than one "blackened
crater. Its lip still strewn with llvp
shells, showed where a German muni
tion dump had exploded.
Nor did it need the French wagons,
laden with the plain white plnewood
crosses that mark soldiers' graves to
tell what else lav hid in the trampled
cornfields and 'devastated woods. The
taint of pestilence hung heavy upon
I ho air and carrion crows flapped
fclugglBhly across tho intervals of
lorest.
But all one had seen before seemed
trivial beside Dormans and the Marne
A alley. It Is a typical country town
straggling along at the foot of a steep
hill, closely parallel with the rivtr, from
which It Is separated by the railroad.
Eastward stretches an alluvial plain,
two miles wide, narrowing to half a
mile opposite the town Itself and sur
mounted on the north by a gradually
rising hill, the crest of which bears the
southern fringe of the Tllz forest.
There had been little attempt by
either side 'to cross the river In the
ppon cduntry to the eastward. It was
on the Dormans waterfront that the
German bridges were most numerous
after the enemy's bombardment had
momentarily paralyzed the defense on
the slopes above.
Here, too, the French had first crossed
on a . footbridge, hurriedly constructed
from German material, when a week's
heroic resistance hJd forced the Kaiser's
best troops to swift retreat.
With affectionate pride a French cen
tral told me how his chasseurs had with
stood the shock of Prince Kltel's guards
and a crack Saxon division as he traced
on the map the battle against double
odds from day to day.
"By noon on Monday," he said, "we
had recovered from the shock of the
bombardment. Fr.om that hour on the
boches paid for every foot of ground In
blood. You will see for yourself what
the Marne passage has cost them."
I walked along the bank of the river,
which Is here not more than forty-five
yards wide. In a quarter-mile I counted
the debris of seven German bridges,
three mere foot rails, one of which was
repaired by the French, two strong
enough for llgbl carts, mlnenwerfer or
machine gum ilinil two solidly con
structed on pontoons with graded ap
proaches cut from the bank on cither
side.

WONT SERVE IN FINLAND
Aland Islanders Refuse to Report
for Military Duty
Special Cable to Evening Public Ledger
Copyright, 1918. iv New York Times Co.
Stockholm. July 30. Some time ago
the Finnish Government called up for
military service five classes of men on
the Aland Islands, but finding that this
measure threatened to meet resolute op
position from the population, which Is en
tirely Swedish, the Government did not
persist. A few dajs ago another similar
order was Issued and the men were to
report on July 25.
A Finnish destroyer was watting in the
harbor of Marlehamn to take the recruits
to Helslngfors. The men did not report,
but sent a note to the district commander
Instead, pointing out that the calllng-up
order was illegally issued, and that they
v refused to do military duty In Finland,
but were willing to join for service on
the Alands. As an absolute minimum,
thev further demanded that commands
should be given in Swedish and not In
Finnish.
The destroyer left with no recruits
on board. So Independent Finland has
also rot her own little Ireland, which
may cause her a great deal of trouble.

London, July 30. The principle of the
British Government in dealing with
