BEST MEN IN ACTION ; Strong Reinforcements Arrive I and Large Bodies, Cross on Pontoon Bridge. London, Oct 0. 2:15 a. m. Concern ing the operations around Antwerp, the correspondent of the Daily Tele graph n Belgium under date of Wed nesday says "Tho Germans today succeeded In lorcing the passage of the river S heldt at a point between Schoona erde and Eigenem They did this under cover of a heavy early morn ing fog. "During the last few days the Ger mans have brought up large reinforce ments They are no longer depend ing on the landsturm and the resorvo troops but are bringing up troops of the first line At least one army corps is concentrated at Assche from which place they advanced through Alost to the Scheldt "The previous attacks of the Ger i mans on tho rler were made through 'cover of violent artillery assaults I which repeatedly proved futile. The last of these open attacks was on Monday evening and ws defeated by tho vigorous defense of the allies. "After this defeat the Germans changed their tactics. Instead of making an advance in force nn the ! Schoonaerde position thev kept up during the night towards a River side po'nt further east. Here they threw across a pontoon bridge and at 6 o'clock this morning about 500 Infantrymen were seen crossing un j der cover of a havy artillery fire "They were observed by the Bel gian patrols who immediately opened fire. The defenders, however, were in very small numbers and after ac counting for a few of the advancing infantry the withdrew to the main Belgian lines "Simultaneously the Germans com menced an action all along the river side line, extending from Termonde to Uytherden, a few miles east of Orembergen. They met with a vig orous defense. In which both the ar tillery and infantry participated and at one point they were repulsed by a bayonet charge Again the enemy advanced, this tlmo In augmented strength, and succeeded in breaking through. "During the morning the Germans brought up several batteries of heavy guns. These outranged the Belgian artillery and forced Its retirement, but it continued to harrass the advancing Infantry It was noticeable that a Taube aeroplane directed the German operations. "As soon as It became known that the Germans had crossed the river - the Belgians brought up troops to hold them back under cover of bat teries which were shelling the ene my's main position on the opposite side "At half past 1 this afternoon a hotly contested battle was engaged In along the whole line. Mitrailleuses played a considerable part in the fighting. Many of those employed by the Belgians are drawn by dogs, several of which I saw lying wound ed in the roadside. "Subsequently the Germans made desperate el forts to bring their ar tlllery over the pon'oon bridge This was ficrcelv contested by the Belgi ans and two guns were destroyed by shrapnel midway across. One bat tery, however, succeeded in forcing a passage. It was quickly brought into action and concentrated a vigor ous fire on the area held by the Bel gians to the east of Berlaerre "After several hours of fierce fight ing the enr-m hrnueht up strong re Inforceroents from the south. They threw large bodies of infantry over the pontoon bridge and although many were swept away by mitrailleuses, a considerable number succeeded ln passing over. They occupied hour3 in Berlaerre and from this vantage point kept up a rifle fire on the Bel gian infantry. "At Ihe moment of sending this; dis patch the battle is still In progress. Although they have not yet. got any large body of men across the Scheldt, the Germans are evidently making a determined advance with a view, no doubt, of approaching Antwerp from the southwest." London. Oct 9, 4 38 n m The Bel gium correspondent in a dispatch dated Wednesday, savs "Thai Hi.' I a i ; ar.' in ; I rong force is evident from their fierce offensive along the river Scheldt, which resulted In their crossing of the river a' three points. I watched di DBS clouds of smoke rising from th naphtha works at Schoonaerde, which were fired by the Germans the previous nigm. ine damage done dv the bombardment In Schoonaerde was very great. Today'6 fighting was, bitter and determined and both sides Buffered beaviiy The German losses! especially must be important for they held the bridge over the Scheldt close I to the entrenched Belgians and the mitrailleuses were in constant use.

Mobilization of Credits Will Solve Growers' Problem in United States. NO DANGER OF 'CORNER' Impossible to Fully Meet Situa tion on Account of Euro pean War Restrictions. Washington Oct. 8. President Wil sou believes that the mobilization of the credits of the country will suf fice to solve the problem of the cot ton growers. He told callers today that the organization of the federal reserve system would help the cot ton situation and referring to efforts to secure the issuance of more money to help cotton men. said he believed there was plenty of money in tho country, but that the difficulty was to get it to the growers. There 1b no danger of a "cotton corner" in the president's opinion through efforts of bankers to raise a pool of $150,000,000 to be loaned to cotton planters. Subscriptions to the pool are sure to be so widely distrib uted, he said, as to eliminate that possibility. The president approves the plan for the pool and may see Festus J. Wade, the SL Louis bank er, who launched the idea, and the other men who are to meet the fed eral reserve board tomorrow to ex plain the details The president believes it is Impos sible to meet the cotton situation fu' ly because the war In Europe 1b re sponsible for it and the market for cotton will bo restricted until the war is ended. He declared that the crisis had not yet com.e because, except in Texas, the cotton crop had not been gathered DAMAGE SUIT OVER THE OBSTRUCTING OF H GUTTER In the case of the Falstaff-Ellte cafe against the Dinwiddle Construc tion company.
