Paris, via London, Sept. 30. —Details of the French and British fighting on the left wing, along the Aisne, where the allies have repulsed for days the attacks of the Germans, who endeav ored to take the positions by assault, are disclosed. Word from the front describes the encounters. one occasion the French and British held positions with in a quarter of a mile of the German front, where they were not in danger from the heavy German artillery and were sheltered from the machine guns unless they came into the open. One of the most furious German as saults turned upon the trenches occu pied by British regiments, which calm ly awaited the onslaughts of line after line of Germans, meeting them with sustaired rifle and machine gun fire and sometimes at the point of the bayonet, which did great execution. The Pritiw, however, did not bear the whole brunt of the fighting, for the French troops, including a division of the famous colonial infantry and the Turcos, as well as many battalions of French regulars and others com posed of territorial troops, also faced successfully prolonged attacks, which were delivered with great fierceness. The vigor and spirit of the soldiers were considered remarkable after such an exhausting campaign, during which they had scarcely a full day’s rest. When not actually engaged in fighting many of the regiments marched thirty miles dally for several days in chang ing position to carry out new move ments. Germans Deny Allies Advance. The German official statement de clares that “reports concerning a vic torious advance of the enemy are un true." “The Germans suffered enormous losses in the last engagement," says the Bordeaux correspondent of the Reuter Telegram company. The mes sage continues: "German prisoners say that some companies of the guards have dwin dled to 100 men and are commanded 'by young 'Officers, as they have lost all their former officers since the begin ning of the war.” Other dispatches confirm the report that the Prussian guard has been cut to pieces during the fighting.

A wireless dispatch to the Marconi company from Berlin gives the follow ing official statement issued .u the German capital: "There is no change in the situation in any of the theaters of war, and re ports concerning a victorious advance of the enemy are untrue. “Reports of the fall of two of the Przemysl forts are inventions." The Austrian government has pro tested to the allies and neutral powers on the use of dumdums. EXPECT FIGHT TO LAST; WAR’S COST TO GERMANY Berlin, Sept 30, via London.—The correspondent of the Lokal Anzieger, in a dispatch published here today, points out that a decisive turn in the battle which has been raging in the western theater of war need not be expected for some time. Subordinate actions of a decisive character are be coming more general, the correspond ent declares. The losses of the Germans have been extraordinarily heavy, and the fact that those of the enemy have been greater is poor consolation. The troops are confirfpnl lhat in the end they will win the action. A long column of French prisoners of war arrived during the week from the direction Reims. Monday the cor respondent met a column of about a ; thousand men whose faces showed that ] they were glad to have at last escaped j the turmoil and terrors of this great-1 eßi of modern battlef elcJs. Berlin, Sept. ftO, via London.—The | response of the German public to the efforts of the government to raise a war fund of it, 000,000,300 marks (sl,- 250,000,000). It is asserted here, has removed all anxiety the nation may have had regarding its ability to meet financial obligations due to the war. Originally the reichstag allowed a war credit of 6,000,000,000 marks in addition to the war treasure, and of this amount 4,600,000,000 has been sub scribed by the public without straining seriously the financial resources of the empire. According to military authorities, the war is costing German about twenty million marks ($5,000,000) a day, in clusive of the money spent on behalf of those who have been deprived of their bread-winners.

A dispatch to the Cologne Gazette from lgale, Dalmatia, asserts that the Austrian forts at Cattaro on Sept. 19 gunk a big French warship. The forts had intercepted a wireless mes sage concerning the movement in the direction of Cattaro of fifteen war ships and three cruisers. The Aus trians awaited their arrival fully pre pared. A salvo from the first fort sunk the warship and the other ves sels in the fleet hastily retreated. "Advantage has been taken of the arrival of re-enforcements to relieve by fresh troops the men who have been on the firing line for some time.” reports an attache at the headquar ters of Field Marshal Sir John French in an official press bureau statement. “Several units therefore have received their baptism of fire during the week.” continues the statement. Despite official denials by Austria, it is positively known that the Aus trian forces on the Italian frontier are being strongly re-enfcrced. All of the regiments made up of troops of Italian birth or front the frontier itself, where Italian sympathy is s'rong, have been transferred to the battle line in Ga licia. Their places have been taken by Hungarian regiments and those front the Russian frontier who, be cause of their pro-Slavic sympathies, could not be depenced on to fight whole-heartedly. aeroplanes have been highly success ful as bomb-throwers, though the press has not mentioned the fact.

GEN. FRENCH TELLS HI BRITONS TH HAVE FACED GIANT GERMAN GUNS London. —The official press bureau issued a report from Field Marshal Sir John French's headquarters on the British operations in France. The text follows: “The enemy Is still maintaining him self along the whole front and in order to do so is throwing into the fight de tachments composed of units from the different formations, the active army, reserve, and landwehr, as is shown by the uniforms of the prisoners recently captured. “Our progress, although slow on ac count of the strength of the defensive position against which we are pressing, has in certain directions been continu ous, but the present battle may well last for some days more before a de cision is reached, since it now ap proximates nearly to siege warfare. “The Germans are making use of searchlights. This fact, coupled with their great strength in heavy artillery, leads to the supposition that they are employing material which may have been collected for the siege of Paris. Confident of the Result. “The nature of the general situation after the operations of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth, cannot be better summarized than as expressed recently in a neighboring French com mander to his corps: ‘Having repulsed repeated and violent counter attacks made by the enemy, we have a fee ing that w’6 have been victorious ' "So far as the British are concerned, the course of events during these three days can be described in a few words. During Friday, eighteenth, artillery fire was kept up intermittently by both Bides during daylight. At night the Germans counter-attacked certain por tions of our line, supporting the ad vance of their Infantry as always by a heavy bombardment. But the strokes were not delivered with great vigor and ceased about 2 a. m. During the day’s fighting an air-craft gun of the Third army corps succeeded In bring ing down a German aeroplane. “News was received also that a body of FYench cavalry had demolished part of the railway to the north, cutting, at least temporarily, one line of communi cation which is of particular import ance to the enemy. German Attack Stopped. "On Saturday, the nineteenth, the bombardment was resumed by the Ger mans at an early hour and continued Intermittently under reply from our gunß. Some of their infantry advanced from cover, apparently with the inten tion of attacking, but on coming under fire they retired. Otherwise the day was uneventful, except for the activity ot the artillery, which is a matter of normal routine rather than an event. “Another hostile aeroplane was brought down by us, and one o.‘ our aviators succeeded in dropping several bombs over the German line, one in cendiary -bomb falling with consider able effect on a transport park near La Fere. “A buried store of the enemy’s ammunitions of war also was found not far from the Aisne, ten wagon loads of live shells and two wagons of cable being dug up. Traces were discovered of large quantitils of stores having been burned —all tending to show that as far back as the Aisne the German retirement was hurried. “There was a strong wind during the day, accompanied by a driving rain. This militated against the aerial reconnaissance. Several German Attacks Fall. “On Sunday, the twentieth, nothing of Importance occurred until the after noon, when there was a break in the clouds and an Interval of feeble sun shine, which was hardly . powerful enough to warm the soaking troops. The Germans took advantage of this brief spell of fine weather to make several attacks against different points. These were all repulsed with loss to the enemy, but the casualties incurred by us were by no means light. “In one section of our firing line the occupants of the trenches were under the impression that they heard a mili tary band in the enemy’s line just be fore the attack developed. It h? now known that the German infantry started their advance with bands play ing. “The offensive against one or two points was renewed at dusk, with no greater success. The brunt of the re sistance naturally has fallen on the in fantry. In spite of the fact that they have been drenched to the skin for some days and their trenches have been deep in mud water, and in spite of the incessant night alarms and the ilmost continuous bombardment to which they have been subjected, they have on every occasion been ready for the enemy’s infantry when the latter ittempted to assault, and they have beaten them back with great loss. In leed, the sight of troops coming up has seen a positive relief after long, trying lours of inaction under shell fire. German Cannon Fir,. Pails. “The object of the great p-oportion Df artillery the Germans employ is to beat down the resistance of their ?nemv by concentrated and prolonged Ire —to shatter their nerve with high explosives before the infantry attack is launched. They seem to have re ied on doing this wit. us, but they lave not done so, though it has taken them several costly experiments to Jiscover this fact. “From statements of prisoners it ap pears that they have been greatly d's ippointed by the moral effect pro duced by their heavy guns, v hich, de spite the actual losses inflicted, has not been at all commensurate with the "UNCLE SAM" SOCKS NOV/ IN DEMAND IN LONDON London. —Socks patterned after the design of the American flag are on sale here.

Be i gardiess in year bravery, keep your blood cod. colossal expenditure of ammunition which has been wasted. “By this it is not implied that their artillery hr© is not good. It is more than good—it is excellent. But the Britieh soldier ie a difficult person to impress or depress, even by immense shells filled with a high explosive, which detonate with terrific violence and form craters large enough to act as graves for five horses. Scoff at German Shells. “The German howitzer shells are from eight to nine inches in caliber, | and on impact they send up columns of greasy black smoke. On account of this they are irreverently dubbed ‘coal boxes,’ black Marias,' or ‘Jack Johnsons' by the soldiers. “Men who take things in this spirit are, it seems, likely to throw out the calculations based on loss of morale so carefully framed by the German military philosophers. "A considerable amount of informa tion has been gleaned from prisoners. It has been gathered that our bom bardment on the fifteenth produced a great impression. The opinion also is reported that our infantry makes such good use of the ground that the Ger man companies are decimated by our rifle fire before the soldier can be seen. “From an official diary captured by the First army corps it appears that one of the German corps contains an extraordinary mixture of units. If the composition of the other corps is sim ilar it may be assumed that the pres ent efficiency of the enemy’s forcer is in no way comparable with whit it was when the war commenced. Germans Lose Many Officers “The losses in officers are noted as having been especially severe. A bri gade is stated to be commanded by a major - some companies of foot guards by one-year volunteers, while after the battle of Montmirail one regiment lost fifty-five out of sixty officers. "The prisoners recently captured ap preciate the fact that the march on Paris has failed, and that their forces are retreating, but 6tate that the ob ject of this movement is explained by the officers as being to withdraw into closer touch with the supports which have stayed too far in ;he rear. “The officers are also endeavoring to encourage the troops by telling them that they will be at home by Christmas. A large number of the men believe that they are beaten. “Among the iteips of news are the following: Recently a pilot and ob server of the Royal Flying corps were forced by a breakage in their aero plane to descend in the enemy’s lines. The pilot managed to pancake his ma chine down to earth and the two es caped into some thick undergrowth in the woods. “The enemy came up and seized and smashed the machine, but did not search for our men with much zeal. The latter lay hid till dark and *hen found their way to the Aisne, across which they swam, reaching camp in safety but barefooted. “Numerous floating bridges have by now been thrown across the Aisne and some of the permanent bridges have been repaired under fire. On the twentieth Lieutenant (name deleted) of Third signal corps, Royal Engineers, was unfortunately drowned while at tempting to swim across the river with a cable in order to open up fresh telegraph communication on the north. Telephone Aid to Spies. “Espionage is still carried on by the enemy to a considerable extent. Re cently the suspicions of some of the French troops were aroused by com ing across a farm from which the horses had been removed. After some search they discovered a telephone which was connected by an under ground cable with the German Hups, and the owner of the farm paid the penalty in the usual way in war for his treachery “After some cases of village fight ing, which occurred earlier in the war, it was reported by some of our off! ce:-8 that the Germans had attempted to approach to close quarters by forc ing prisoners to march in front of them. The Gem ans have recently re peated the same trick on a larger scale against tl;e French, as is shown by the copy of an order issued by the French officials. It is therein referred to as a ruse, but if that term can be accepted it is a distinctly illegal ruse. Charges Tricks to Germans. “ During a recent night attack,' the ordor reads, 'the Germans drove a col umn of French prisoners in front of them. This action is to be brought to the notice of all our troops, (1) in order to put them on their guard against such a dastardly ruse, (2) in order that every soiuiei may know how the Germans treat their prison ers. Our troops must not forget that if they allow themselves to be taken prisoners the Germans will not fail to expose them to French bullets ” “Further evidence has now been col lected of the misuse of the white flag and other signs of surrender. “During recent fighting, also, Ger man ambulance wagons advanced in order to collect the wounded. An or der to cease fire was consequently giv en to our guns, which were firing on this particular section of ground. The German battery commanders at once took advantage of the lull in the ac tion to climb up their observation lad ders and on to a ha/stack to locate our guns, v'hich soon afterwards came under a far more accurate fire than any to which they had been sub jected up to that time.” the ankle.
