OUTCOME 111 WEST DEPENDS ON MOVES OF ARMY IT VERDUN Germans Say Investment Is Com plete and That Offensive Will Soon Begin By Associated prrss London, Sept. 15, 10.15 A. M.—For once the military critics on both sides agree that the outcome of the cam paign in ihe western war area de pends on the result of the operation of the Crown Prince's army before Ver dun, but on the question of accom plished facts the divergence of opin ion is as wide as ever. Berlin maintains that the investment of Verdun is now complete and there fore expects that within two or three days there will be a resumption of the offensive along the whole German front. On the other hand the latest ollicial communication issued in be half of the allies states that the Crown Prince has been driven back and has moved his headquarters from Sainte Menehould. south of Rheims, to Mont Faucon, about 15 miles northeast. Berlin admits that the weakened | right wing has been turned back, hut discounts the reverse by maintaining that it will have no effect on the gen eral forward movement to be initiated when Verdun falls. The very candid statement of Gen eral Joffre regarding the sort of war fare his troops are capable of waging indicates that the French are now in a position to take up the gage of bat tle on their own terms and in a coun try of their own choosing. General .Toffre is now a national hero, after conducting the great retreat, that caused him to be called many hard names.

J 25,000 MEN AND WAR MATERIALS TAKENBYALLIES Germany's Armies in North and East of Paris Are Making Determined Stand Along River Aisne; French Attempts to Break Through German Lines Have Been Re pulsed; 300,000 Austrians, or One-third of Entire Force Reported to Have Been Lost During Fighting in Galicia. German Cruiser Sunk by British. London, Sept. 15, 2 P. M.—The correspondent of the Central News at Dieppe under date of Monday, September 14, transmits a report that the German army under General Von Kluck has been forced to surrender. The correspondent says: "The report has reached Dieppe that the extreme left of the allies after making an encircling movement by way of Roye and Ham and joining a force from the Boulogne district, has compelled General Von Kluck to surrender with according to one statement, 14,000 men and according to another statement, with 25,000 men and a quantity of guns and war material." General Von Kluck has been operating in the German right wing and has consequently been opposed to the left wing of the allies His army has been retiring before the allies for several days. Roye and Ham are to the southeast of Amiens, and were occu pied by the Germans two days ago. Recent reports show that these towns are now in the possession of the allies. Germany's armies to tlic north and the cast of Paris after re treating for upwards of fifty miles toward the Belgian frontier, are to-day making a determined stand along the river Aisne. A news agency dispatch from Dieppe says that General Von Kluck has been enveloped by a French circling movement and forced to surrender with a large command and a quantity of guns and am munition. The German general staff, however, announced to-day that heavy engagements were being fought by General Von Kluck's forces to the northeast of Paris without a decisive result so far. The French attempts to break through the German lines were said to have been repulsed. Reports regarding the operations in East Prussia' contradict each other. From Petrograd it is said that General Rennenkampf has resumed the offensive and that the investment of Koenigsberg still is in progress. Berlin advices, however, arc to the effect that the Russian general has suffered defeat nearly as severe as that of the Russian disaster at Allenstein. Further Petrograd dispatch estimate the casualties of the Aus trians in Galicia to total 300,000, nearly one third of their forces. The sinking of the German protected cruised ITela of 2,040 tons by a submarine of the allied fleet, is announced in an official state ment issued at Berlin. A major part of the crew was saved. The German submarine which sank the British cruiser Path finder with a loss of 246 lives is reported to have been destroyed by the fire of several British cruisers. Sharp skirmishes have taken place in the Shan-Tung peninsula of China between the German defenders of the Kiao-Chow con cesssion and a Japanese landing force.

Sept. 14. via London, Setit. 13, 0.45 p. m.—A dispatch re received here from Berlin contains the comment of a military writer in the German capital on the situation in the western theater of war and the retirement, of General Von Buelow. "It Is necessary to remind the pub lic,"'says the writer, "that the road to the goal is still long and that we are merely at tho beginning of making sacrifices and undergoing suffering. There Is danger that this fact Is not kept before the eye constantly enough, because our victories in 1870 came easy. Ilow much of u danger this Is can be seen by the recent complaint that so l'ar no whole army of the! enemy has been forced to surrender."!
