VON KLUCK French and British Forces Making Great Effort to Gain Control of Railroad Center at Tergnier Attacks of Irivad ers in Voges and Lorraine Have Been Repulsed, Declares Paris War Office. PARIS, Sept. 25. Confirmation of the report that the German army of General Von Kluck has been very heavily re-enforced was given in the official French state ment, issued at Bordeaux and made public here from Gen eral Gallieni's headquarters. The announcement, issued at 3 o'clock this afternoon, says that the left wing of the alliesjs again in action against Von Kluck' and that desper ate fighting is in' progress. It is stated that the Germans have been "heavily re enforced by fresh troops sent through by way of Liege," but that there is little change in the general situation. The "fighting continues wtihout definite result," says the statement. The official report shows conclusivley that the allies are making a great effort to capture the railroad center at Tergnier. It says: "A general battle is now .in progress, with the entire French left wing engaging the enemy in the territory between the Somme and the Oise, the fighting being most marked along the line from Tergnier to St. Quentin. "The French center has advanced from the east of Rheims, and is now moving in the direction of Berry and Rheims. "In Lorraine and the Vosges the French have repulsed all of the German attacks." ASSAULT GERMAN POSITIONS. The French, aided by two British army corps, were assaulting the Ger man postions here and along the line northward to the vicinity of St. Quen tin in a supreme effort to cut Gen. Von Kluck's communications. The war office admitted this. The general position of the allied left gradual!- has been changing. Real izing the folly of sacrificing men in vain attempts to carry the strongly en trenched postions that have the protec tion of the Alsne and Oise. the French and Uritish commanders-in-chief are. contenting themselves with subjecting these trenches to a constant bombard ment. And with the bulk of their forces available for further action, thej are driving a weil-ra against the 'jTrann lines of communication If they can break them, then : will be possible to split the armies of General von Boehm. made up of tho bulk of the Germans withdrawn from !3elgium. and of Gen eral von Kluck This will cither throw the latter back on top of General von Lcelow's irmv whio adjoins on the cast, or compel von Kluck to give bat tle Mirroundel 011 three sides bv hi. cmn.ie.s On this new development of the bat- Artillery Duel Supplants Furious Night Assaults PARIS Sept X Throughout the J petitionary forces were so terribly decl night mad bayonet charges by the allies mated, upon the Gerrnar. trenches marked the I Along the allied center, near Verdun great battle upon the Aisne. Charge was met with counter charge, and hand to-hand fighting on the heights of the Meus in the darkness of night. In des perate grapples where steel met steel, brought this morning but slight gain, according to statements from army headquarters. s dawn approached the exhausted armies desisted and the crack artillery of each side resumed the long range duel that has featured each day's fight ing. Indications are pointing to the ap proach of the supreme struggle along tho Laon-9t Quentln-Cambral road. where only a hort time ago the Scotch and Irish icsimenta of the British e.- tie. already in progress for twelve dajs. much depends. If the allies are suc cessful they will force a speedy retreat of the Germans that must carry them back to the lines of the Mouse ml north into eastern Bt'ium. Meanwhile the French center is again active It was announced that th German bombardment of Rheims and its noted cathedral has been resumed. Shortly afterward it was stated that the French center was advancing east of Rheims. indicating that the -eal causo for the renewal of the bombardment has been the assumption of the offensive bj the French The reason for this undoubtedly Is a desire to create a diversion which will aid the chain of French forts along the Meuse between Verdun and Toul. which are under severe pressure at the present time. It Is admitted that in the fighting of the last few days the losses on both sides have been enormous. Wounded who have arrived here declare that the entire theater of war is covered with dead and wounded, which neither s le has had opportunity to collect Not withstanding the losses however it positively stated at army- headquarters here that the evidences of a slackening of the German defensive strength a'e multiplying, and that a general re treat Is expected in the near future tollowlng the occupation of Varenne bv the Germans, a now movement has ocen orgamzeu Dy me French com manding general, the details of which aro suppressed, but which apparently has for its object the beleaguered for tress now under siege by the Germase for a week. Bombardment Continues. Tho first statement issued from head- , quarters this morning added little to ' what was already known. The fighting on the left continues, be ing marked by almost constant artlllerv I fire." It said, "and the allies have mada 'another slight gain. On the heights of tho Meuse fleice fighting continues.
