l.oudon, Nov. 13. 3.30 A. M. —The
j "Times'' Flanders correspondent, de
: scribing the Geramn attack at Dix
mudo, says:
"There were only two points, Dix
i mude and Nieuport, whece the Herman's
i could assume the offensive on the
j Vser, all the front between being im
! possible for fighting on account of the
i flood. The force concentrating between
1 I)ixmude and Thorout w,ts chosen for
the attack.
"In the morning the German "bat
teries opened a heavy (ire on the
: French positions and kept it up
; through N most of the day. This can
! nonade was the prelude to :t violent
j infantry attack on the outskirts of
. Dixniude.' The attack was made with
great gallantry and very heavy fight
ing tool-' place.
"The Germans came in overwhelm
ini numbers and toward evening the
j allies were compelled to retire. They
( fell back into the town, destroying the
two bridges in their retreat. The Ger
| mans thus won the bridge head.
"Next morning strong reinforce
tnents were brought up bv both sides
| anil fighting coutiifue 1 in :<n.l dliout
j the town. The course of the after
noon a force of Germans succeeded in
I penetrating into the town and a des
J peratp struggle went on in the streets,
i "The capture of Dixmude or a part \
I of it would be no advantage to the
j Germans. The town is almost entirely
| surrounded by water.''
The correspondent of the "Daily
i Mail,'' telegraphing under date of
Wednesday says that the German posi
tion at Dixmude is very insecure an I i
■ that they probably will be driven out j
j again.

up from the rent roof of the shed to a height of nearly 000 feet, proving that the Zeppelin inside had met its fate.

last day or two. when the emperor

Geneva. Via Paris. Nov. 12. 11.59
P. M. Kmperor William is offering his
marble palace, the Villa of Aehilieiou,
in Corfu, for sale. It was built in
1890-91 for the Kinpress tUizabeth of
Austria at r. cost of $5,000,000 and
has since been improved. A syndicate
o& German and Swiss hotel men wished
to buy Achilleion a few years ago. but
the • were outbid by the Kmperor.
The Emperor's decision to sell the
place, it is stated, is the result of the
uncertain attitude of Greece toward
Germany and Austria. It is said he
fears confiscation of the palace if
Greece joins the allies. A Swiss syn
dicate has been given an option on the
place at a low price.
There are five capital offenses utider

Conviction Grows in
Paris That German j
Offensive Is Draw
ing to a Close
Present Violent Effort of the Germans j
in Ypres Region Did Not Succeed ,
However, in Breaking the Enemy's ji
Paris, Nov, 13, 7 A. M.—The eon- ,
victiou is growing here that the period '|
of the German strategic offensive is
drawing to a close and that the war
on both the western aud eastern fronts
is about to eater its third phase.
The present violent effort in the
\prcs region it may have succeeded in
betiding the allies' line in a few places,!
has not .vet, according to either French j
or Uerman reports, succeeded in break !
ing it, and it seems impossible that the!
attempt can be repeated under the
same conditions. Even success at this)
point might prove merely momentary j
like that at St. Mihiel on the Meuse'
six weeks ago.
fearful Carnage in the Trenches
But lieiieral .loffre, the French com
manaer-in-chief, is fully alive to the ;
importance of this position and ae* ,
cording to an officer just returned from
1 pros, that eventuality lias been pre-',
pared lor. At \ pres and its environs, j
although the artillery of the Germans >
is formidable, that of the allies is still j'
more so and causes fearful carnage in r
the enemy's trenches. The light in this!
region is largely an artillery duel with !
the infantry remaining in tile trenches.!
They can only approach the enemv by
boiing tunnels, which are converted
into trenches by piercing the roof.
However, important the operations ,
in J landers may bo, they arc now over
shadowed both in extent and the in
fluent they may have on the war as a '
whole by the eastern campaign.
Russia's Effectiveness Looked For
Colonel Feyler, editor of the "Swiss!
Military Review," and one of the best!
known military specialists declares i
that "Russia is now about to bring to
bear all her effectiveness, and if it is!
realized that she intervenes at a mo-1
ment when in Flanders German levies j
of the third line, young soldiers with |
six weeks' training are being brought!
into action, the full significance of the'
operations on the eastern front will be!
recognized." • ;
Austro-German Armies Advancing
"Three Austro-German armies," iie l
continues, "are advancing toward thei
angles of Thorn and Cracow. The
Russian commander seems to be accen-'
tuating the defense in the latter diree- j
tion. If he succeeds the results will |
be far reaching. The Austrian army
will be cut off from the Germans anil J
forced to accept battle with their!
backs against the Carpathians.
"In addition there is prospect of aj
battel in the center of the line from]
Posen to Breslau toward which the Ger- J
man army of Silesia seems to be di-i
rected in retreat and at a more or less I
early date West Prussia will be threat
ened by way of Thorn."
