GERMANS' BIG GUNS TERROR TO ALLIES LOND^)N.%Oct.''10.?The Standard's correspondent In Paris, writing of the Alsne battle, says that though It has now lasted more than three weeks, with about 3,000,000 fighting on a lino 140 miles long, it is still impossible to say that any decided result has been achieved by either side. But tho balance of gains and losses, he says, seemed to be slightly in favor of the Allies, who have advanced on their left without giving any grounnd in the center and have gained on their right. The Germans, says this correspon dent, have certainly suffered more se verely in both men and captured ma terial than tho Allios, and on tho whole tho immediate outlook appeared to be satisfactory from the Franco-British point of view. The-Germane, he says, have a num ber of their heavy howitzer guns placed in advantageous positions from which they can shell the Allied forces at a distarce of from seven to eight miles. No big guns the Allios have can shoot effectively at such a range consequently it is impossible to reply to this fire until the Germans ap proach within range of the British or French artillery. These howitzers have inflicted great damage to the Allies, but the field guns the latter have proved, he says, far superior to those of the Ger mans.
