Paris, Oct. 3, 3: 1 5 p. m. The official announcement is sued this afternoon declares that the vicious attack of the Ger mans at Roye has been repulsed by the allies. The text of the statement follows: "First, on our left wing the violent action which has been progressing since yesterday continues without interruption, particularly in the region of Roye, where we have repulsed all attacks, although on this part of the front the enemy has been reinforced by new additions taken from the enemy's center, as has been previously reported. "Second: On the center nothing is to be noted from Rheims to the Argonne region. In the Argonne district the 1 6th German corps, the army of the Crown Prince, which j had attempted to slip by through the woods of Grurie, has been driven back toward the north of the Varennes-La-Hara-zee-Viennes-La-Ville line. "In the Woevre district and on the heights of the Meuse, our progress is slow, but continuous. "In the Belgian field the Germans are bombarding the front southeast of La Place 'd Anvers without being yet able to produce any considerable effect on the works. They have delivered many infantry attacks which have been repulsed, j J "In the Russian field of operations, a strong German army of four corps has taken positions between the frontier of East Prussia and the river Niemen. Its left wing has been thrown back on Mariampol and Suwalki. At the center the city of Augustovo has been taken by the Russians. On the German right wing the struggle continues around Ossovotz (between Lyck and Bielostok). "In Galicia the rear guard of the Austrians has retreated in disorder as far as Vistula, i "In Bosnia, Servian and Montenegrin columns are ad vancing on Sarajevo. I Berlin.

Oct. 3, in-2f a. m Though the German right Is less than Hfty miles from the Belgian fron tier, never since the outbreak ot the war. apparently, have the people ot Great Britain been more reconciled to the idea that the struggle will be long and terrible. When the Germans first began to retreat, after Uieir rush toward Paris, hope ran high that some master stroke would bring complete rout to the invaders Now, howler, many observers emphasize that even should the so-called battle line be terminated 'he Germans would only fall back on equally strong entrenchments. Tbere was nothing from the French battle line this morning to indicate a marked change in the situation The fiercest fighting apparently eti 1 1 centers on the part of the battle line stretching due north for about 40 miles, in an almost straight line, from Roye. The vicinity of the little town of Albert has again been the scene of vigorous action where the allies claim progress and, though It seems incredible the latest announcements assured that the remainder of the vast line was quiet with the excep tion of tho region around St. Mlhlol, from which the Germans were driven from their southernmost lodgment From Petrograd there continues to pour in uninterrupted claims ot Rus sian successes on the frontier of Po land; but from Galicia, where the, Russian and combined German and Austrian forces are at death grips before Cracow, has come nothing to Indicate which side has taken the first honors. Emperor William at Breslau. A belated dispatch from Copen hagen asserts that Emperor William has recently been at Kreslau where he decided on a four-fold offensive moven ent against Kovio, Warsaw. Lodz and Galicia When this was under way it was added, he expect ed to return to the western theatre of war. From the southeastern tip ot Galicia, that is to say Bukowina, fil ters news of the adanced Russian forces unheard from for dajs It was snid that the entering of Transyl vania was already under way and that a battle between the Austrians and the combined Russian and Servian forces was In immediate prospect. British censors seem to be unable to agre0 whether the recent revival of German activity in Belgium means a serious attempt to take Antwerp and1 other points, or whether the opera tions are merelv intended to harass the Belgians and prevent them from tampering with the German lines ot communication Vienna Preparing for Siege. Vienna according to roundabout dispatches purporting to emanate from the Austrian capital, is prepar ing lor a siege, and there is even talk of removing the seat of govern ment The determination of the admiralty to mine a certain area of the North sea oaa given England an added feel Ing uf security While r.o alarm has ever been manifested, the move is balled as one shielding the Dover straits and the channel without in terfering with the southern exit from the Thames or the routes to Ostend, Dunkirk, Calais and Boulogne. Prince Joachim Wounded. A new Germany casualty list adds f'COO names to the dead, wounded and missing. The wounded include Prince Joachim, the emperor's youngest son. According to Rome advices, a cabi net crisis Is approaching, due to dif ferences u;r to the attitude of Italy. Reports of the illness of King Charles of Roumania are revived Those opposed to the monarch's friendliness toward Germany, insist that these reports are issued to cover .i i'i"la in determining Roumnnla's atl nude. I he French cabinet has decided that 11 cannot accept the proposal to Institute officially general prayers for the success of the French army, while agreeing that all creeds are fre to proceed with such services within the limits fixed by the law There is nothing new from Ant werp. The latest Belgian official re pons said that the city was resisting successfully the bombardment of the Germans The Chinese government has again protested against the Japa nese occupation of the railway station at Wel-Hsien. The most dependable reports indi cate that the really great battle IB being tought at Cracow, whero an un- numbered Rusian force is attacking the Germans and Austrians, there united in immense strength. Cruiser Chases German Ship. Manila, Oct 3 The North German Lloyd steamer Mark, which sailed from Yokohama on July 31 for Ham burg and Bremen and touched at Hl ago, August 5, 16 in the harbor at Nasughu, whither she was pursued by a British cruiser.

Paris, Oct. 3, 6:35 a. m. After hav ing tried in vain recently in the north of France to break at Tracy le-Mont. and then at Roye. the strong line of the allies, the Germans have renewed their fierce attacks between the lat ter city and the region of Arras. Their latest efforts, in which they have been hurling their forces against the French and English, have had no better results. The French, in on official state ment, frankly admit a slight falling back at the left of one of their de tachments. On the other hand the allirs have not only successfully op posed the terrific onslaught of the enemy at other points, but have made gains. The allies continue to pour in their troops at points where the-r are need ed to replace those worn out hy the hard fighting or In filling gaps in the ranks It Is assumed that England's native Indian troeps, whose arrival at Marseilles last week has only been announced, are either at the front or In its vicinity They have greatly strengthened the French line, which Is roughly estimated, now numbers 750,000 men. Lieutenant Colonel RouBset the military critic of the Petit Parlslon, in reviewing the situation 6ays Great Battle on Left. "It Is on our left that the battle takes on the most imposing propor tions. When one considers that after hardly a month of lighting the enemy was nearly at the gates of Paris, it j can be seen how much territory we have gained on the Germans who counted en crushing us. "The enemy has brought to its right large forces, hoping to break our offensive, and at the same time it re- trns to attempt the passage of the effort on two wings and at the same time guarding on the rest of the front I in an expectant attitude This is the J old tactic of flanking, which reap I pears unfortunately for It has no I more merit of secrecy than that of) ' surprise We know It too well now to hae it still Imposed on us French Men Suffer Terribly.

Von Kluck Was in Danger. New- York. Oct. 3 Dow. Jones and Conipar, a Wall street news agency, sent ou the following dispatch today 'Bordeaux, Oct. 3 Minister of War Mlllerancl declared today that only the steady arrival of heavy re inforcements had averted disaster for tho army of General Yon Kluck and the entire right wing of the German army He said that early in the weeic the forces of General Von Kluck were in desperate straits and that part of them had been forced to withdraw from advanced positions lo a point northeast of St yuentln by a raid of French cavalry.
