London, Sept 28 All movements Of troops are being rigorously con cealed and no mention of them i8 al lowed by the censor. The great ef fort on the part of the allies to drive back the right wing of the Germans continues with unabated fury. The tide of war has moved as far north as St Quentln Steadilv, foot by foot. General von Kluck's army is being driven back. The center of In terest has shifted from the allies' cen ter, where both sideB were too strong ly intrenched to allow any great of fensive movement, to the allies' left wing. If the German right be turned he must abandon his fortified positions along the line of the Oise, of the Cra onne and the Aisne and withdraw his immense forces through Belgium or Luxemburg by way of the narrow Stenay pass, which 1b an extremely difficult task. Tho enemy is already well beaten and he knows it. Apart from the Rus sian advance on Berlin, which cannot much longer be delayed, fresh corps which are absolutely necessary to pro vide a great driving wedge to pierce some vulnerable portion of the enemy's hne can only be provided by Great Britain frJlWffect f arr,val ot 100,000 fresh troops at this critical Juncture would prove decisive. Juncture The wonderful resources of the Oer man army in vigor, organization and I fighting strength are shown by the I task if has set Itself and has thus far I successfully performed. While It has been for fifteen succes sive days engaging the entire army of France and the entire regular home standing army of England (more than 170,000 men) on the French frontier, It has been able to detach not less than 160,000 men and send them by 250 special trains through Belgium and across northern Germany to stop the advancing Russian army" on the East Prussia frontier. At the same time yesterday and today it has engaged the valiant army of Belgium In two new battles, one east of Antwerp and I another sixteen miles cast of Ghent Besides these tltantlc tasks, the Gerruar. army hag held the Belgian capital and guarded fie railways, each more than 100 miles long, thus keeping open the supply of ammuni tion and food for Its armv of between 800,00k and 1,000,000 fighting in north ern France. Its right wing. Lorraine, and Al sarp s armies another million are sup plied by railroads running west from the heart of Germany. Certainly no other army that ever existed could fulfill more than half this gigantic task Yet the German army is doing it And its weak ally, Austria, is doing little or nothing. nn Oracle Theater has Union Music.

Correspondents of London papers report from Petrg grad that a German army has been decisively defeated by the Russians in a battle southeast of Kallsz and that the great German imasion of Russian Poland has recoiled upon the river Narta. Tho battle was fought about 110 miles north of Cracow and 1000 miles southwest of Warsaw. This indicates that the Kallsz-Cra-cow Hne of German defense has al ready been attacked by the Russian armies acting independently of the czar's forces in East Prussia and in Gallcia If the news of a German re verse near Kali3z is true, the Russian battle line has straightened from East Prussian to Gallcia and Russia is now striking vigorously and slmultaneous 1 with left wing, center and right v. ing Germans Thrown Back. The correspondent of the Daily Chrontcle in Pc-trograd learns that the German offensive, designed to overrun Poland and capture Warsaw, has not only been halted, but has been thrown back in four places "It appears," the Chronicle man '-ays, "as though the battle In the west of Russia, for which vast Ger man preparations hod been made, had at last begun Now it has already t-nded and the Germans are In re trtat, shelling the works of Osso wiscz as they go. "They came across the border on Wednesday at four points The most southerly wa6 close to Kalisz, where they occupied the district of Warta and suffered a heavy defeat at Sier adz. Another force advanced to Mlawa, while another invaded the government of Lomza, near Winez tnta, and was definitely defeated." Progress on All Sides. The Russians are now progressing on all sides toward German territory General Rennenkampf has sent a strong force into East Prussia in the direction of Koenigsbcrg, while us ing his main army to prevent the Ger mans from crossing the river Nlemen and striking at Grodno, the railway key to the Vllna river and Warsaw. Ihese operations are comparatively unimportant. Ifrussia is compelling Germany to maintain a large force In East Prussia while she attacks vio lently the Kalisz-Cracow line to the t-outh and continues to pres3 her Uaiician advance against Cracow The whole Russian advance is in the shape of a vast crescent, extend ing about 200 miles from its north ern horn, east of Koenigsberg. to its southern horn, east of Dembica, in Gallcia. Petrograd correspondents as sert that Russia is employing no fewer than 3,000,000 troops along this semi-circle, and that Germany, with Austrian assistance, is concentrating probably 1.500,000. Major-General Leonard S. Wood commander of the Department of the Bast, has been conferring with Adjutant-General Cole In the State House Boston over the problem of bringing I our militia up to the "two-brigade" j organization in order to conform with the new Federal Army regulations.

London, Sept. 29 The official press bureau Issued last night a descriptive account of the operations In Franco of the British force and the armies In France connected with it told by an eyewitness present at the headquart crs of Field Marshal Sir John French. This account supplements that of September 24, from general head quarters. "September 25. For four days there has been a compfratively lull alons our front This has been accom panlod by a spell of fine weather, al though the nights are much cooler One cannot have everything, how ever, and one evil result of the sun shine has been the release of files, which were torpid during the wet days. Adantage has been taken of the arrival of reinforcements to relieve by fresh troops the men who have been on the firing line for somo time Several units therefore have received their baptism of flro during the week. Fire on Comrades. "Since the last letter left general headquarters evidence hns been re ceived which points to the fact that during counter attacks on the nlgln of Sunday, the 20th, the German in fantry fired into each other as the result of an attempt to carry out the dangerous expedient of a com erg ing advance In tho dark "Opposite one portion of our posi tion a considerable massing of hostllo forces was observed before dark and some hours later a furious fusillade was heard in front of our line, though no bullets came over our trenches. "This narrative begins with Sep tember 21 and covers only two days On Monday, the 21st, there was but little rain and the weather took a turn for the better, which has boon main tnlned. The action was practically con fined to the artillery, our guns at one point shelling and driving away the enemy who were endeavoring to construct a redoubt The Germans for their part expended a large num ber of heavy shells In a long range bombardment of a village Found Trenches Deserted. "Reconnoltorlng parties sent out during the night of tho 21st and 23rd discovered some deserted trenches and in them or near them in the woods over 100 dead and wounded were picked up A number of rifles ammunition and equipment also were found There were other signs lluit portions of the enemy's forces had withdrawn for some distance. "Tuesday, the 22nd, was also fine, with less wind and was one of the most eventful days that has passed since we reached the Alsue unevent ful that Is for the British. There was less artillery work on either side, the Germans, nevertheless, giving another village a taste of the 'Jack Johnsons. "The spot thus honored was not far from the ridge where some of tho most severe fighting In which we have taken part has occurred All over this 'no man's land' between the lines the bodies of German infantry are si in lying in heaps where they had fallen at different times. Germans Use Spies. "Espionage plays so large a part In the conduct of the war by the Germans that It is difficult to avoid further reference to the subject They have evidently never forgotten the saying of Frederick the Great: "When Marshal Coubise goes to war he Is followed by a hundred cooks; when l take the field I am preceded by a hundred spies.' "Indeed, until about twenty years ago, there was a paragraph in their field service regulation declaring that the service of 'protection In the field' e. g, outposts and advanced guards should always be 6upple mented by a system of espionage "Though such instructions are no longer made public, the Germans, as Is well known, still carry them Into effect. Apart from the more elabor ate arrangements, which were made In peace time for obtaining InfcTrma tlon by paid agents, some of the me thods which are being employed for the collection of the conveyance of intelligence are as follows: Men Between Armies. "In plain clothes signals to the German lines from points In the hands of the enemy by means of colored lightB at night and puffs of smoke from chimneys by day. Pseudo labor ers working In the fields between the armies have been detected con veylng information and persons In plain clothes have acted as advanced scouts to the German cavalry. "German officers and soldiers in plain clothes or in French or Brit lsh uniforms have remained In locall ties evacuated by the Germans In or der to furnish them with intelli gence. Used the Church C-lock. 'One spy of this kind was found by our troops hidden in a church tower His presence was discovered only through the erratic movements of the hands of the church clock, which he was using to signal to his friends by means of an improvised semaphore code. Had thi3 man not been seized it is probable he would have signaled to the German artillery at the time of their arrival the exact location of tho headquarters and staff A high ex plosive shell would have then myster iously dropped on the building. "Woman spies also have been caught; secret agents have been found at the railroads observing entraln mejita and detainments. "It is a simple matter for spies to mix with the refugees moving about to their homes; difficult for our troops, who speak neither French nor Gorman, to detect them. "The French have found It neces sary to search villages and also cas ual wayfarers on the roads for carrier pigeons. Among the precautions taken by us to guard against spying is the publication of the following no tice printed in French and posted: 1 Motor carg and bicycles not carrying soldiers in uniforms may not circulate on the roads. ' 2 The Inhabitants may not leave the localities where thev reside be tween Cp.m. and 6 a. in. .' "3 Inhabitant may not quit their homes after 8 p m. " '4 No person may on any pretext pass through tho British lines without nn authorization countersigned by a British officer.' Germans Mystified. "Events havp moved so quickly dur ing the last two months that anything connected with the mobilization of the British expeditionary force Is now an cient history. Nevertheless, the fol lowing extract of a German order is evidence of the mystification of the enemy and Is a tribute to the value of secrecy, well and loyally maintained at the time in England: "'Tenth Resorve Army Headquar-i ters, Mont St. Gulbert. Aug. 20, 1914 2. 40 Corps order 21st, August: The French troops in front of the Tenth army corps have retreated south across the Sambre Part of the Bel gian armv has withdrawn to Antwerp It Is reported that an English army has disembarked at Calais and Boulo gne, en route for Brussels.' " uu- GERMANS HURLED BACK BY ALLIES e B Paris, Sept, 28. 5:01 p. m. French ? and British on the left wing have re- j Jj pulsed for da) 8 the attacks of the, Hermans who have been endeavoring 1 to take the allied positions by assault. I Word from the front describes the . encounters. On one occasion the t French and British held positions wlth t a quarter of a mllo from the German front, where they were not In danger from the heavy German artillery and I were sheltered from the machine guns unless they came Into the open. One of the most furious German as . saults turned upon the trenches oc . cupled by British regiments, which calmly awaited the onslaughts of line j after line of Germans, meeting them with sustained rifle and machino gun fire and sometimes at the point of the bayonet, which did great execution The British, however, did not by any means bear the whole brunt of the fighting, for the French troops. In cluding a dhislon of the famous colonial Infantrv and the Turhos, as well as many battalions of French reg ulars and others composed of terri torial troops, also faced successfully prolonged attacks, which were de livered with great fierceness The vigor and spirit of the sol diers were considered remarkable aft er such an exhausting campaign, dur ing which they have had scarcely a full day's rest." When not actually en gaged In fighting many of the regi ments have marched thirty mlle6 dally for several days when changing posi tion In order to carry out new move ments. The reason for the recent deter mined attacks by the Germans along the Somme Is credited in French mili tary circles to the desire of the newly appointed rjerman generals, who have taken the places of those removed by the emperor, to carry out some daring exploit. The battlefield on the Somme seems to have been mode by nature for such a formidable conflict The country is undulating, and In some places with out woods The lower parts offer' splendid covering tor troops approach ing to attack. This advantage, how ever, has been rendered to a great ex tent without avail, owing to the num ber of aeroplanes In use on both sides The center of the battle line today ' again became the scene of heavy fight-1 Ing. Here the Germans have most of their big guns and they also brought much Infantry" into action. Their ef forts are declared to have been inef factual, however oo BOILER EXPLODES KILLINGJWO MEN Storrs, Sept. 28.

The boiler was of the marine high-pressure type and it Is said had been recently re paired According to stories of by standers, the master mechanic and boilermakers were at work caulking a patch on an adjoining boiler when the accident occurred Lhe steam filled the boiler room in an instant and. with a crash that was heard for miles, sections of the boiler tore through the roof of the fire room, carrying away rafters and skylights. Elliott was caught between some of the twisted tubes from which live steam Issued at a pressure of 150 pounds. Hla cries, heard above the roar of the steam, attracted other workmen, but no one was able to face the deadly pressure which came from the broken tubes Elliot retained his presence of mind and finally managed to stagger from the steam-filled zone, but intense heat had reached his heart and he died in a few moments Strong probably never realized what happened. His body was blown to pieces by the bursting of the rirst tube Pennington, Hackney and Gooding, who were with Elliot when the explo sion came, were hurled through the steam filled zone to safety. AH were scalded in passing through the con densing gas, and received their other injuries by striking against project ing girders. nn VIOLENT FIGHTING ALONG THE AISNE London, Sept 28. A French war ship has sunk two German auxiliary cruisers In Corisco bay. west Africa This official report comes from Bor deaux. Corisco bay, better known as the Bight of Biafra. indents the coast of Kamerun, the German colony in west ern equatorial Africa. London, Sept 29, 4:82 a. m. A dispatch to the Daily Mall from Ven ice, dated Sunday, says that the French fleet at that time had been In action for the last forty-eight hours, bombarding the port of Cattaro and the fortified island on the Dalmatian CCGSt. Paris, Sept. 28 After sixteen days of continuous fighting the battle of tho Aisne is tonight entering upon its final phase. This is the opinion of every military critic That tho end will bring a decisive victory for the allies Is generally conceded. Tho brevity of all official communi cations during the last twelve hours has aroused unusual interest. The omission of any mention of fighting except between the Alsne and Argon ne gives the impression that most important events are transpiring at the other vital points and also that new movements of strategic sicnlfl cance are under way. Tonight's official announcement say 8 : "The information regarding the sit uation on the left wing is favorable "At the center our troops have successfully withstood new and very violent att;ks. "We have advanced slightly on the heights of the Mouse. "In the Woevre district dense fog has caused a virtual suspension of hostilities. "On the right wing (Lorraine and the Vosges) the situation is un changed." While this afternoon's official state ment emphasized the fact that the general situation was unchanged, they added the vital information that at no point had the German attacks, continued now for three days, made any gain A failure to progress at rhis stage Is for the kaiser equivalent to a reverse, for with fresh troop? arriving to add stamina to the assault upon the worn forces of General Alex aner Von Kluck, each day sees a dl minlshing of that leader's chances of extricating himself from the position resulting trom his ill-advised though nearly successful drive to Paris. The tactics of the opposing general staffs, as shown by reports from the front today, remain unchanged. Fran tic blows delivered by tho German forces first at ono point and then an other on a line from the River Aisne to the Argonne forest to pierce the French front and thus relieve the harassed German right wing from its peril, failed. The allies continued their enveloping movement against Von Kluck's slowly bending front, and while no pronounced successes are claimed, every' indication is that perceptible progress has resulted. If the German right is turned Von Kluck must withdraw his immense forces through Belgium or Luxemburg, and because of the few avenues of escape available this will be a most difficult and dangerous task For two weeks without cessation the Germans have endeavored to end the slow but deadly encircling movement of the French and British revolving about a point between the Somme and Oise livers. The first attempt comprised an assault on the allies' center be tween Rhelms and the Argonne. This tcsulted disastrously at Vitry-le-Fran-cois. lhe enemy then turned eastward, bringing up great bodies of troops' to besiege Verdun. They were again stopped Then they broke through the French right wing. The next en deavor took the form of a counter attack by Von Kluck, reinforced by tioops from Lorraine. These were thrown forward in a desperate at- ! tempt to dislodge the French, who I were pushing the Germans back upon Noyon. , According to dispatches from the' ( front. today's attempt was the most violent of the war. Column after column was pushed forward despite the devastating fire from well placed French batteries Passing through this, the attacking forces were met by French, who, aided by their Turko comrades, successfully held their po sitions. After hours of this ineffectual and costly battle the Gorman forces were withdrawn again to their fortified lines near the French positions. Fighting has occurred within four miles of Antwerp, according to Am sterdam dispatches Belgian outposts won in a clash at Svhoeten, four miles east of the new capital. King Albert is personally leadln? his army In its endeavors to harass the Germans There has been sharp fighting at Termonde, sixteen miles east of Ghent, and at Hofstadt, two '( miles further to the east. At the frl latter place the Germans were driven I back. 4 oo CONSPIRACY CHARGE OF LABOR UNIONS Martinez, Cal . Sept. 28.
