THE WASHINGTON TIMES: SATTJRDAf ; FEBRUARY 5; 1010.
11 Asatteatfu , U r HI MY J.miDLTDIHT Both Teams Reported to Bo in i Best Condition for Basket f bail Game. OTNCHBURQ. V.. Feb. 6,-Tonliht on tho annory floor will occur tho an neal XJniTeralty of Vlr-jinla-Waihlni-ton and Xo basketball teams- Both quints are here In the pink of condition, and In ever expectation ot winning thla im portant fray. According to tho com parative core. Virginia hat a consider able edge on the Generals, but the latter are confident that they -will put up a bitter flaht If they do not win. and have strong hones of coming out of the con test victorious. Last year Vlrelnla beat tho Lexington team, and the year preceding that man 'aired to tie them. Before that there had beeti quite a strin of victories to the credit of Washington nnd I..ce. The same between tho two schools waa usually played on February 22. Wash ington's Birthday, and attended by a larwe part of the student nodv or upm Institutions, tho rootling of both sldea be InK very spirited. This year the , date haa been pushed up several weeks. Lanro numbers of supporters of both team are on hand, however. Virginia has made rather rapid re covery from her slump In the Catholic University game, when she was so badly trounced. Htrlckllng and Stlckley are getting up to form, as was shown by their work against V. M. I. last Satur day night, when tho cadets wero; de feated 3D to 26. Previously Virginia managed to take tho measure of West Virginia University, which In turn hart defeated Washington and Leo with considerable case. So according to com parative scopes Virginia has a good edgo on the Generals for tonight's con test. But this gamo Is one which can never bo foretold by "dope" and a spirited contest Is In store for tho spec- tators. F. MILTON, Jr. From Foul Line To Pit NATIONAL. CAPITAL. LEAGUE. no tills.

ALEXANDRIA MASONS GO TO GRAND LODG DESCRIBES HEROIC MAUBEUGE DEFENSE Territorials Put Up Glorious Bat tlo Against Great Hordes of German Foroes. By WILLIABf PHILIP SIMMS. PARIS (By Mall), Jan." 11. The mys tery of tho fall of.Maubcuge has at last been cleared up, after seventeen months of rumors and doubts. Instead of the surronder of the French fortress hav ing been due to treason, as Intimated by German sources, tho defense of the citadel la said to have boon one of tho brilliant actions of tho war. In nn exclusive Interviow- with a French officer, a member of tho staff of General Fournler, nillltnry governor of Mnubougc, who has reached this country after escaping fiom a German prison, where he was sent with tho oth er officers of tho gnrrlfton, the whole story In dctnll was mado known. Mnubeuge was not another Met," ho snld, "but a now Belfort. General Fournler began fortifying the ap proaches to the place on August 2. working 6,000 laborers with 25,000 terri torials. They dug thlrtoen miles of trenches around the city, showing great forethought, as at that time trench flgnyrig had not begun. Thoy strung 1.000,000 square yards Of barbed wire on a million and a hatf stakes and sta tioned fifty mobile batteries of artillery at strategic nolnts, ns well as many dummy batteries lo fool the enemy, More Than 2 to 1. "Tho city, was invested towards the end of Aug utt by 6S,000 Germans against our 30,000 territorials., Tho Germans wero commanded by General von Zwchl In the presence of the Kalser'a nephew, Prlnco Leopold of Prussia. For nine days a furious battlo ruged, nil tho German heavy artillery being brought up from Llcgo nnd Nomur, Including tho OB mlll tnetcr und 420 mllimetcr howitzers. Ceaselersly shells rained on the forts dnv and night, causing a reign of ter ror, for In addition to tho city's resi dents there" wero 40.000 refugees, mostly women, children and old pcoplo from the. North, quurtcred In the tewn. "The German shell fire was directed by aeroplanes and spies who had been on tho Job for years, living In Maubeugo and ostensibly engaged In business there. Ono by one the fifty batteries were picked off. Tho arsenal was fired by a German shell and 2,000 French shells exploded Inside nt ono time. Peo ple all over the city were knocked down by the force of tho explosion. Tho water, gas, electricity, telephones and telegraph were Instantly cut off and the city, including tho hospitals, was burning. "Outside tho city. In the trenches, tho troops' fought on without relief as we were prevented from rcachlrffc them, by a curtain of artillery fire. Wo made four sorties, onco charging to within 200 yards of the jQcrman mortars. "The city wrecked and on Are, our ammunition exploded, and means of re sistance dwindled. General Fournlor sur rendered on September S, when tho Germans began hurling shells into the quarter packed with refugees. To tight on would havo meant but one t.ilng: the slaughter of women and babies. "When the Germans entered they were astonished to And It defended only by territorials. They believed thoy wer attacking a big garrison of actives. In recognition of the brave dofense of tho citadel von Zwehl told FouTnler to kcop his sword. Fournler refused, be caues the other officers wore not grant ed the same courtesy. Ho said: " 'Whatever their lot Is, I will share It. What Is good enough for them Is good enough for me.' Heartbroken But Proud. "General Fournler was sent to tho military prison at Torgu In Silesia. He Is a heartbroken man, but protid. He held out against tremendous odds, sus taining what was certainly the might iest bombardment the world has ever seen. "Before the Germans entered all tirma and other war materials were destroyed and regimental Hags burned to keep them from falling Into tho enemy's hands. "Fournlcr's defense of Maubeuge was not merely heroic; It was of great military valuo. During the battle of the Marnc which ended In n Crushing defeat of the Germans aftr several critical days ho held up Cr000 ot tho (lower of tho Kaiser's army. "After the fall of Maubeuge It was too late for these men to do any good, the tide at tho Marne had turned on Sep tember 8, nnd two days later It was complete. Had Fournler not held out as he did, nnd had he let the Germans pass without opposition, things might very conceivably have turned out an other way. "The rumors of treason scattered by Germans in order to demoralise French troops had absolutely no foundation In fact." Lectures on Uncle Sam's Eff orts. to Protect Life' "The Government's Efforts to Pro tect Life" was the subject' of an Illus trated lecture by William F. Poabofly, president of the Washington Karniy Flrst Association, at a neighborhood meeting nt the .Metropolitan Presby terian Church last night. He described the work of the Weather Bureau and other branches of tho Gov ernment's protective efforts, nnd out lined the association's campaign against street accidents. Principal H. F.

The question of Philippine 'Independ ence now Is up to tho House, and. be fore many weeks, will probably bo up to tho President. After protracted debate, lasting many days, tho Senato lost evening passed tho bill. Tho vote wns G2 to 24". Six Repub licans voted with the Domocrats for the bill. They wero Borah, Clapp, Kcnyon, La Follette. Norrls. and Works. By an overwhelming majority the Senato rcfusod to modify the Clarke amendment, which was adopted several davs rigo. This provides for independ ence In two to four years, though a new Congress might extend the time. Vari ous efforts to amend failed. It Is expected the House will pass the bill about as It passed the Senate. The Senate refused to stand for any provision for neutrality agreements or for this country nlono to guarantee sovereignty. Senator Stone strongly opposed the form of the bill .because he held It was "Independence with a string to it." Senator William Alden Smith attacked tho Democrats severely for "surrender of American rights." LIQUID FIRE SHELIS Model of Destructive Weapon Was Shown to New Orleans Editor in 1861.' That Invention moves In cycles Just like General Miles says war moves when one is applied to the business of the other. Is the contention of Frank H. Lancaster, a linotype salesman In Washington, who has documentary proof that the liquid fire shell which Is supposed to be modern was really an Invention of half a century ago. Mr. Lancaster has a copy of the Dally Delta, an interesting newspaper that was published In New Orleans, of tho date of April 17, 1861, which contains an editorial paragraph that seems to bear out his contention. Tho liquid fire shell haa been used frequently enough In Flanders and northern France to work Its way to the first pages of newspapers through out tho world during the past year and n half. It has been hailed as the qulnt escenco of cruelty which modern In vention has Injected Into war. Here is what the Delta of New Orleans ot April 17, 1861, said about the "modern," Invention: "Mr. St. James lias shown us a mod el of a new shell of his own Invention, which, it. appears, would be a very for midable missile. The ehell Is of an elongated shape, containing two cham bers, one for the purpose of holding the destructive qualities contained in a. common shell, the other for the pur pose ot containing liquid fire, which Is said tq be so destructive In Its action that very tew of the shells will destroy the largest vessel."
