With ijormi huning fresh troops estimated as high i :is fiiirt.iMKt men into the titanic conflict ! laging ir. northern Frame, the Paris j v:ir ofi'ie,. tonight claimed that all at- j larks. Ire.m the sea as lar as the rfsiou to the south of Arias, hail been re pulsed. The fighting between Lille ami Dunkirk is described in Berlin dis palehes as the greatest battle of the campaign and upon ft.s outcome is said to hinge the fate of the German in vasion of France. Around Nieuport, where the Rem h hud tlie English fleet idcd by the allies' land forces, the bat tle is said to have been one of a mas sacre oi Germans, many bodies at that point being washed upon the beach by waves. Hecause of the deadly fire of the naval guns, the invaders are de clared to have left the coast clear in an tffort to work around Dixmude toward Lille, the lierlin report claiming suc cess on the Y'ser canal. In their su preme effort to break through the al lied line the Germans are reported to have .-nipped Brussels and Antwerp of their garrisons and have even drawn reinforcements from the line before Kheims. Zeppelins are also declared to have been used in bombarding the allied line after having practiced dropping bombs at a target from a height of seven to eight thousand feet. The French commander-in-chief is the omy fine to admit adverses in the western theater of war, and he does so only in cryptic sentences. It is difficult to judge, therefore, how the battle in France and Belgium is progressing, but it is certain that tip to this evening none of the armies had succeeded in pushing its offensive far enough to bring appreciably nearer the end of nny of the engagements that have been going on for so many weeks. The Ger mans have taken the offensive against both the right wing of the allied army which rests on the sea and that por tion of the French army which is de fending the line of fortifications be tween Verdun and Tonl. In the former operations in which every German sol dier at the command of officers in Bel glum is taking part, the French report admits that the Germans have made progress at some points but declares at others the allies have been just as successful. It is evident along the coast the Germans found it difficult to advance In the face of the hard fight ing force drawn along the Yser enal anted oy Hriusn and r rencn snips j w hich were bombarding them from the i sea. It was probably the most pictur esque battle ever fought. On the shore troops of five nations were fighting Atistrians nnd Germans, on one side; French, Belgium and British, on the other. British monitors, gunboats, de stioyers and submarines were fighting side by side with French warships, while at the same time they were be ing subjected to attack by German submarines and airships. Thus far the warships have had the better of it, for while they are reported to have In flicted terrible loss on the Germans try ing to udvance along the coast, they themselves suffered little or no dam age and have warded off 'attacks by submarines. The Eritish admiralty is sued an interesting account of the op erations of this fleet, in which it ex plained that the ships have fired upon German batteries in the vicinity of O.stend. It was probably this which led to reports from Holland that the Germans have been driven back in that direction and ulso to the statement that the allies had reocenpied Ostend. Germany Will Respect The Monroe Doctrine associated press dispatch WASHINGTON. Oct. 24. Count Rernstorff, Geiman ambassador to the T'nited States, announced that he had formally communicated" to the Wash ington government the determination of Germany to respect the Monroe doc trine, whatever the outcome of the Eu ropean war. Alter considerable search his note to the state department was discovered, but its text has not been made public, probably hecau.se the communication had figured in an ex change of cipher messages with P.erlln.

Discus sion of the ambassador's note was aroused bv the published statement of Dr. Dernburg, former colonial .secretary of Germany, which calls attention to the fact that his government had taken occasion to notify the United Sta'-s formally of the untruth of reports as to its intention in South America. Dernberg and German officials here attribute these rumors to Germany's enemies in the present war, believing that they were designed to influnce public opinion in the I'nited States against Germany.

Sept. By Courier to Hol land, mail to New York. Oct. 24. A five (lay trip to the front has been taken by the correspondent of the Associated Press past the German fortresses of Mayence. Saerbrueckon and Metz, through the frontier regions between Metz and the French fortress line from Verdun to Ton), into the actual battery positions from which German and Austrian heavy artillery are pounding their eight and twelve-inch shells into the French barrier of forts and into the ranks of the French field army, which has replaced the crumbling fortifica tions of steel and cement with ram parts of flesh and blood. .The impression at the end are those of some great industrial undertaking with powerful machinery in full opera tion and endless supply trains bringing up raw material for fabrication, rather than war as pictured. From the point of observation on the hillside above St. Mlhicl, the great battlefield on which the German army is endeavoring to break through the line of barrier forts between Verdun and Toul, and the op posing French forces could be sur veyed in entirety. In the foreground lay the level val ley of the. Meuse, with the towns of St. Mihiel and Dannoncour nestling on the green landscape. Beyond and be hind the valley rose a tier of hills on which the French at this writing ob stinately hold an entrenched position, checking the point of tlie German wedge, while French forces from the north and south beat on the sides of the triangle trying to force it back over Mease and out from the vitals of the French fortress line. Hursting shells threw up their columns of white or black fog around the edge of the pano rama. Clouds of smoke here nnd there showed where a position was be ing brought under the shrapnel fire. An occasional aeroplane could be picked out, hovering over the lines, but infantry and field battery posi tions could not be discerned even with high-power field glasses, so cleverly had the armies taken cover. An un initiated observer would almost have believed this a deserted landscape rath er than the scene of a great battle, which, if successful for the Germans, would force the main French army to retreat from the entrenched positions along the Aisne river. About three miles away across the Meuse, n quadrangular mound of black, ploughed-up earth on the hillside marked the location of the fort of Les Paorches, which had been silenced by German mortars the night Before. Fort Camp D's Romaines, so named because Roman tegions centuries ago' selectetl this site for a strategic encampment, had be'en stormed by Bavarian infantry two days earlier, after its heavy guns had been put out of action.

Damp weath er and chilly night air did not deter several hundred men and women voters of Douglas from gathering t I.ight in the Columbia, theater to lis -tin to the stirring speeches of the progressive state candidates. The cemocrats. however, holding a meet ing one block away, and despite the aid of the Ninth Cavalry band, had only about twenty present. They at tributed the, lack of attendance to the inclemency of the weather. I George I". Young, candidate for governor on the progressive ticket, excelled tonight in his talk. It was a pointing of the way to a realiza tion of the higher ideals of good government, an instruction in tli" ! methods of securing efficiency in the administration of state affairs and the inauguration of economies that must result in the lenvering of taxes anil the saving to the citizens of Arizona of thousands of dollars annually. It is very evident here tonight, fol lowing the dry amendment argu ments advanced by the speakers, par t:cularly by Captain Qj. L. B. Alex ander, candidate for attorney general, that if the vote of this end of Co-e-hise county would determine tile status of the entire state, Arizona would go dry by an overwhelming majority. The remarks of the speak ers w hen dealing with the question of state-wide prohibition and in re ferring to the prohibition plank in the platform of the Arizona prog ressive party and the pledging of the candidates of that party to ill" proposed dry amendment, were greet ed with uproarious applause. Not alone the women in the large audi ence, but the men, representative citizens, men from every walk of life, merchants, miners laberers an 1 professional men, all acclaimed th" principles of that plank of the prog ressive party as one means of raising a burdensome yoke from the necks of the citizens of the new state. Dr. J. liernard Nelson, candidate for the I'nited States senate', swung into line tonight and caught t:v spirit of the audience with his re view of tlie necessary legislation for the advancement Arizona and the of the welfare of pledging of himself to work for Arizona first and the country afterward if elected to suc ceed .Marcus A.

WJ th the arrival at Aguas Calientt-s tomorrow and .Monday of the twenty-eight delegates sent by Zapata to the Mexican mediation convention, the retirement of Carranza as first chief of the constitutionalist army will be promptly taken up. This is reported in official advices to the American government. Administration officials are keenly interested in the outcome ef the discussion as Carranza has already indicated his unwillingness to abide by the decision of the con vention. A committee has gone to Mexico City to pursuade him to yield. The difference between the con vention, which voted itself seivereign in Mexico and Carranza is producing many complications. The convention for instance instructed Carranza to comply with American proposals for guarantees to Mexicans who served the I'nited States at Vera Cruz. Car- I ranza referred the iuestion back to I the convention, staling his unwill ingness to issue a proclamation on the subject, although he was willing to give oral assurances. Another complication appeared to night in the statement issued by Rafael Zubaran, head of the- Car ranza agency here, declaring that "the Mexican government must henceforth neither admit nor icknowledge the validity or authori- zation of anv of the acts of Fran- cisco I'npiidi in his official capacity f Mexican consul general at X sew ; York." ranza adherents here of having ex pressed himself too freely in admir- ation of Villa.

The jury in the case of Mrs. Florence Conklin carman, after listening all the atter noon anel evening to the summing u; of the defense and the prosecution, and the charge of Justice Kelby, re tired at 9:45 o'clock tonight to begin its ' deliberatiems. At midnight the jury was still out. The defense of the woman charged, with the murder of Mrs. Louise Bail ey, rested at the completion of tho morning session and several wit nesses in rebuttal were called by District Attorney Smith. Then for meire than three hours and a half John Graham, Mrs. Car man's chief counsel, dissected thi state's case. He severely criticized the district attorney's method of con e'ueting the case, particularly refer ring to the manner in which tho prosecutor guarded the witness, Celia Coleman. In summing Up the casi for the people, the district attorney, painted Mrs. Carman as a calculat ing, scheming woman who deliber ately murdered uneler the spur o jealousy. Attorney Graham asserted thu slayer of Mrs. Bailey was undoubted ly a man and not his client. Ho scouted the testimony of Celia Cole iran and Frank Farrell, two of tho prosecutors' chief witnesses, anil ended by appealing to the jury to re store the defendant to her home and family. In reply Smith laid emphasis on the testimony of these two wit nesses and explained why he had Celia remeived from tho Carman household soon after the murder. He said he knew the murder was "inside, job" and that Celia, if anyone, wouM be' the person to tell about it. Had he allowed the girl to stay in the house, he said, she woull have remained under the influence of the Carman family, and the truth never would have been known. e-xeused. her alleged falsehoods at tin start by her own words, that she. was "sorry for Mrs. Carman." While the prosecuteir was talking, Mrs. Carman kept her eyes em him constantly, but all the while he was vehemently accusing her of murder her face retained a calm expression. The family, of the murdered wom an, including her daughter Madcliio and her husband, William Bailey, were in court all day. Justice Kelly began to deliver Cue charge shortly after 9 o'clock. lie explained the different degrees oi' homicide, and discussed at som" length the credibility of the wit nesses. He refrained from ' discuss ing any eif the evidence. During the first hour of the jury's deliberatiems, Mrs. Carman remain ed in the chambers at the rear of the court. Five minute's after the jury retired, it sent out a request for some testimony. Mrs. Carman, highly nervous, waf. l.i ought out into the court room.
