Informa tion reaching here quotes two Ger man officers, now imprisoned at Ant werp, as authority for the statement that the German losses up to two days ago were between 200,000 and 300.000. General Carranza's repl to the pro posals mnde b Paul Fuller, Presi dent Wilson's special representative, outlining the terms on which tho United States will withdraw its troops from Mexico and recognize tho constitutionalist government, Is being awaited In Washington. It wns said today that General Carranza has not as yet given his reply to Mr. Fuller, and that officials only knew the two men had been In conference. Although officials refuse to discuss the question. It Is generally under stood that Fuller mado threo alterna tive proposals to Carranza. One was that Carranza should declare himself provisional President and immediate ly begin plans for restoring normal conditions. This would eliminate him from the presidential race at the com ing election. Tho second plan was that Carranza should withdraw in favor of his minister of foroign af fairs, who shall declare the consti tutional government the established government of Mexico, leaving Car ranza free to be a candidate in the elections. In both events tho United States would extend immediate recog nition and withdraw its troops. The third proposition and the one thought most likely to be adopted Is for Carranza to retain power as first chief until the election, when he can become elective President. Meantime the United States would withhold recognition and retain troops there until after the election. State and War Department officials today insisted the Mexican situation still looked satisfactory. They be lieved the conferences between Car ranza and Fuller and Silliman, this Government's representatives, would j go far toward establishing a better understanding LONDON, Sept. S.

Baron Herbert de Reuter. of Reutcr's Tele gram Company, has Just issued a statement concerning the alleged in fluences of the German interest over his agency. Baron dc Reuter says: "As for our agency, we never had communication direct or indirect with the Dciitsches Kabel Gesellschaft, still less has any proposal in their namo or on their behalf evef been submitted for our consideration. The fact, however, that for many months. I may even say, years, past, the Ger man press, at the bidding and under the inspiration of political wirepull ers, has circulated unblushing false hoods and calumnies about our agoncj, presumably to weaken its prestige In contemplated competition, points to their Intelligent anticipation of the refusal which any overtures from their side would have met with from us."
