word last night from New York that
the directors of the New Haven rail

peaceful dissolution of the system which
will put an end to the court proii "diegs

possible way to avoid lighting the suit

however, made his demands regarding
the separation of the iUston .Maine
a bit stronger than formerly.

They are expected to dispose of the

German Commander Says Forts at Liege Will Be
Taken Without Loss of a Man as Soon as the
German Artillery Arrives Holland Requested
to State Its Intentions
A Dutch despatch says a terriflic cannonade was heard this morning
from the direction of Tongres, north of Liege. It was yesterday reported
that two divisions of German cavalry with artillery had arrived there.
Helgiuin was today again the scene of outpost lighting between Belgians,
French and Germans. The German commander at Liege denied the io.-s of
i!0,UUO men in his efforts to take forts there. Me says they will be taken
without the loss of a man as soon as German heavy artillery arrives. Me as
serts that "The Melgian force is numerically superior to ours." Me inti
mates ihat the attacks were stopped by the Emperor's orders to avoid need
less sacrifice of life.
On the subject of .Liege the French foreign minister declares all the
surrounding forts are intact and that only a small force of Germans enter
ed the town itself. It had been pointed out previously that the defect ot;
the Liege forts was their inability to see one fort from the uext although
the tire of their guns crosses.
A Brussels despatch says the bulk of the German army is leaving Liege
and advancing toward the JKrench frontier through the heart of Meigiuin.
The French foreign minister described the French position in Alsace as geo't
as the troops occupied the Vosages mountains. Military men studying the
position of the opposing armies may, it is pointed out, possibly have leeu
confused as to the German entrenchments said to have Leeu erected in the
river Aisne. There is also a small stream called the Aisre running in"o the
Ou.the below Liege and this may be the one- mentioned, as it would thus
form an extension of the defensive work thrown up by the Germans alter
th'-y encountered Belgian opposition at Liege.
Belgian anticipates an attempt by Germans to cross Dutch territory and
nas requeued Holland to state her intention regarding the resistance to a
breach if her neutrality.

day for its action. One of the amend

uoused strong opposition was that to
require American ownership of a ma
jority of the stock of corporations
seeking to register vessel; hereafter
acquired. Opponents of the amend

would destroy the measure's value as
an emergency step to meet the situa

They claim that the provision will be
stricken out in conference between the
