-ft This is the fifcst photograph of the
'"fntire siege gun with which the Ger
i. aj-my reduced the tovtp at X»iege,
ur, Maubeuga and Antwerp, and
the Allies were advancing last week
and at one time were reported to have
captured. The Germans claim to have
taken 500 British troops In the fighting
in this neighborhood.
Of the gains claimed by the Germans
the French reports make no mention
dismissing the battle with: "There is
no change to report between the sea
and region around Arras."
To add to the trials of the troops a
short spell of fine weather has given
place to another downpour of rain
which will convert the lowlands of
Flanders into great lakes.
Of the battles on the center and left
wing the German report does not
speak, but the French declare they axe
maintaining their positions in the
Argonne and on the heights of the
Meuse and have destroyed three more
German batteries. From unofficial
sources it Is learned that the French
have made some advance in the moun
tains along the AJsace border.
In Poland a very heavy battle now Is
in progress between the fortresses of
Ivandgorod and Radom which the Ger
mans and Austrians, who were defeated
in their first attempt to cross the Vis
tula before the former city, have made
a stand against the Russians, who have
followed in the hope of destroying
Both sides have, according to their
own reports, made prisoners and cap
tured guns, but the battle which ex
tends over a front of twenty-six miles
has not yet been decided.
The Austrians are still making a
bold effort to cross the river San and
are carrying on a splendid flght south
of Przemysl In the hope of reaching
and recapturing I^ernberg.
The Montenegrins admit that they
have had to withdraw to their previous
positions along the Rosnian frontier
after an attack by a superior force of
Austrians. The latter, in fact, seem to

French Views of Battle
Paris, Oct. ji ®unday morning.)—
The success of the allies in repulsing
the furious attacks of the Germans, as
indicated in Saturday's official state
ment, was the baBis of encouragement
to the French and English when the
battle of the North was resumed Sun
The Germans, In a mighty effort to
gain a victory, continue rushing all the
reinforcements that can he spared.
Many of the German soldiers at Dix
mude have come from Herlin within
the last few days. Arriving at the
scene of battle they have been sent at
once into the trenches waist-high with
water. The Belgians, under cover of
a fog, approached the trenches, and
at the point of the bayonet, made pris
oners of a large number of the in
vaders. At the same time the contest
was resumed at numerous other points,
but the result was difficult and the
casualty lists were large.
The fact that the allies have ad
vanced appreciably east of Nieuport,
as officially announced, and has helped
to reassure them, since in this vicinity
the British haval guns could hardly
continue to exercise any innfluence in
gaining ground. The slight introgres
sion at other points, which was coun
terbalanced by progress somewhere
else ,was considered as inevitable in a
great conflict of this kind, and appar
ently it did not cause the slightest
The strategic consequence of this
battle of the north, it Is felt, In some
quarters, will be greater to the Ger
mans than to the allies. If it should
be necessary for the latter to withdraw,
necessary to transport the gun.
This Is one of the two siege guns
which battered the fortifications at
Antwerp within three days after they
began w.orjc. While the Belfort forti

and the bending of the left wing would
not compromise the situation In gen
eral. The French also are confident as
to the line at other points.
Fifty per cent of the troops on the
right wing have not had their baptist*1
of fire, according to word received here.
General Joffre, commander-in-chief of
the French forces, is said to be a saver
of men, by necessity, perhaps, but
especially on account of humanity. His
calmness on the field of battle is said
to be extraordinary. He is precise in
his orders and has absolute knowledge
of the ground and of his men.
The question of the return of the

view of the necessity of voting ma

cussed. The suggestion is made that
after the deputies and diplomats have
finished setting here they Bhould go
back to Bordeaux.
