that battle cruisers have not been

"The ob.iei I of Hie maneuvers is
jthus with the beginning of August
j clearly fixed;, it is to prepare not
only an offensive action, but an of
fensive which will be taken as soon
as favorable circumstances shall ar
rive. "From the I'.lli of August to the
1th of September the orth rs for re
tirement were executed, but the ra
pidity of the advance of the h it wing
of the enemy, the time necessary
for the Hiitish army to be complet
ed and reinforced, certain difficulties
in our transports arriving from the
encumbrance of railioads by the
evacuations from I'aris necessitated
Ihe disembarking of a iart of the
troops sen!, from the east to Cen
tral Manoi.ri more to the south than
had been foreseen the 2r.tli of Au
gust. The. offensive was retarded by
that fact.
"On the 4th (f September the re
connaissances of our cavalry, those
of the flving corps, of the Ilritish,
of the Mannoury army and of the
military, government of I'aris devel
oped the information that the' tight
of the Herman army (Yon Kluck's
army) deflected its advance towartl
the southeast l.Mcaux and Coulm
inieis), abandoning the direction of
I'aris.
"l!y this time the original army
of the French left (the 5th army)
v.as ready to face the Herman col
umns in front, and it was prolonged
toward the northwest by the British
army anil Maiinouiy's army directed
tin (he northeast of Paris.
"The disposition sought by the In
structions of August L'.ith for the
resumption of the offensive was then
realized. The line escaped the pro
jected envelopment, and it was their
own army that now assumed an en
veloping disposition. The wings found
Hrong- support in their contact with

on Hit Herman general, von Macken
sen's army to the right has post
poned, it is believed in military cir
cles, the threatened Herman oflcn
sive in the west, ami it is there now'
possible that the allies will lie the
tirst to take the offensive,. In sup
port of i his it is pointed out that
tin- i.ttacks by the Herman crown
prime's army in the Woevre, which
the tc'i'iiian press announced was the
oi. mint ni'i'Mii nt of a general move
forward, have ceased. The fighting
now going on along th.. western
front consists of artillery engage
ment", and a few isolated
ami counter-attacks by
attacks
infant rv
vvhit-h make little or no difference in
the positions of opening forces.
The Itrilidi. according to a French
report, repulsed a Herman attack.
The Herman report, alludes to this
as a Hrilislt atrrick and says it was
repulsed with considerable loss. In
fa t Herman and French reports are
gifii-iallv- ci .nt rati ictory with respect
lo what fighting has taken place, but
from the trend of them it is evi
dent that neither side lias attempted
anything t.f a tb-cisiv e nature and it
is believed here it will be weeks be
fore I hey tlo.

Mure is some decisive engagement
slid; as the capture of the J.ublin
t'holm railway, which it Is asserted
would be in their hands now if the
Aii.-tiians advancing toward the city
had nut been driven back.
There are reports from neutral
sources to the effect that the Her
mans are moving troops whit h were
intended for the western front to
the cast in order to make good their
efforts against the Russians. To a
certain extent this seems confirmed
bv a statement in the Russian of
ficial report that reinforcements
have reported to Archduke Joseph
Ferdinand and
Macketisen has
offensive which
that Heneral von
also commenced the
however broke tlown
under Russian
undecided as t
fire. While critics are
whether the Russian-!
have made their stand on the pres
ent lines or will fall back to the
Hug river, thus abandoning' the fort
resses of Ivangorod anil vYarsav. it
is agreed that the countor-a t tack
which they developed has postponed
for some time at least the necessity
of any further retirement.
.There is no confirmation of the re
ported victory on the ( 'orso plateau,
hut dispatches from Home say llv
Italian troops are making good prog
ress in the work of capturing the
mountains around Trieste which they
hope to take before commencing ad
vances on the city itself, thus avoid
ing Ihe bombardment of the town
which is largely inhabited by their
compatriots.
MANY OFFICIALS
THAT A
f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
YVAyillNHTOX, July 11. A study
of the text of Hermany's reply
strengthens the conviction of high of
ficials that a most critical point in the
tell! ions of the two countries has been
reached. They not only feel that the
I'nited States must refuse- to accept
the Herman, proposals, but that the
failure, to disavow the sinking of the
l.usitaiiia has brought a crisis.
Secretary Lansing will go to Cornish
in a day or two to confer with the
