Statement

Paris, Oct. 5. The battle on the left
north of the river Alsue Increases in
vigor, according to the official bulletin
Issued this afternoon.
The outcome of the .fighting is un
certain, it is st-Ued, 'because both sides
are constantly reinforcing.
Elsewhere along the long battle line,
it Is declared, the situation Is un
changed. The French statement ad
mitted that "we have been compelled
to give ground at certain points."
Berlin Statement

Berlin, Oct. 6. The Hermans, are
gaimy decisively ni riuu-tj tm6 iu
German right, stated the official bulle
tin issued this morning.
At several points the Germans pierc
ed the French column and drove them
from their trenches, it was claimed.
It was admitted that the fighting was
of the fiercest kind, both sides rosing
heavily.
The investment of Antwerp is pro
ceeding vigorously, it was staled.
Lines Out of Danger.
By United Press.
Paris, Oct 5 The Gentians have
for the time being lifted out of danger
their lines of communication. They
drove ahe allies back at points where
the latter had striven to reach the rail
way over which the Germans were
rushing reinforcements and supplies.
The Germans are detraining other
units to pour reinforcements Into their
right wing, because a retreat from
Franco would crush the fighting spirit
of the German troops. The general
stuff is fighting desperately to save
the German right.
BY J. W. T. MASON.
New York, Oct. 5. Further neces
sity for strengthening the German
western front has caused another re
distribution of the invader's forces.
Von Kluck's original command is
doubtless now the strongest part of
the entire German line, entailing cor
responding weakness elsewhere.
The new western re-enforcements
have come from the German center
and from the left. Only an exchange
of artillery fire has been proceeding
at the center for several Cays, while on
the German left the desperate attempts
to break through the 'Meuse frontier
defensive line have weakened. The
reason hi both cases is the urgent he
cosstty for 'bolstering up the western
battle Hue.
The length of this lino, from Its
southern extremity betweeu the Alsno
and Oise rivers to the Belgian frontier.
U seventy-five miles. 1'ropcrlly to de
fend heavily entrenched positions and
to attempt offensive diversions, as Von
Kluck has been doing, rouuires about
ten thousand men a mile. The Gorman
western front, therefore, comprises
about seven hundred thousand men,
according to standard methods of est.-
mating.
An opportunity for breaking through
the German weakened center undoubt
edly now exists, but to take advantage
of its seems to be beyond the possl1.il
., f modem warfare. If the allies
could detach .secre.ly a considerable
part of their western army anu
it against the German center, an over
whelming disaster to the Germany
would result. Such a display of strat-
egic
genlus, of the Kina
victories for N.apoiim,
many
earn for
r.on. Joffre me mm
baton just revived by the French gov-
ernment.
The difficulties In the way are the
superiority of the German espiuiifs
system, their aeroplane scouts and the
persistent use of the Germans if local
offensive tactics. The local offensive
is admirably effective In preventing
Just such a coup. If the allies were
to weaken their western front, in order
to concentrate against the center, one
of Von Kluck's persistent counter at
tacks might break through the allied
lines and the complexion of the French
campaign might change In the twin
kling of an eye.
Only an immediate success with the
element of surprise playing a. large
part, would overcome the risks. These
risks are h perilous that they are not
likely to be taken. Instead, the dan
gerous opportunity at the center 'for
overwhelming the Germans by a light
ningiike stroke, while undoubtedly
under consideration at the allies' head
quarters, probably will be declined.
The slower ordeal of wearing clown
the resistance of the German western
line is much safer.

By United Press
Petrograd, Oct. 5. The Germans
who were defeated along the Niemen
river have reformed their lines just in
Bide of the Russian frontier and are
endeavoring to resume offensive oper
ations, according to reports received
here.
It is reported that fighting Is also in
progress along the Polish frontier
where the Russian troops are engaged
in delivering a series of attacks ou
the German entrenchments. ,
At Kutnow, it is stated, the Germans
were defeated with the loss of two
thousand men and many guns.
It is declared that the arrival of
Czar Nicholas at the front aroused the
patriotism of the troops and resulted
in a series of wild attacks on the Ger
mans, the Russians gaining decisive
victories at every point.
It is reported that the fighting at
Galicia continues with the Austro-Ger-man
armies on the defensive.
The Russian, Austrian and German
armies are fighting ahrag a tremen
dous line, extending from the neigh
borhood of Cracow, in Galicia, along
the frontiers of Poland and east Prus
sia, almost to the Baltic sea. There is
no news from the southern field, but
the Germans and Austrians, instead
of waiting on the line, betweeu Cracow
and Czestechowa and Kaliez for the
Russians, have advanced further into
Poland. Their outposts have teen re
ported bj far east as Picttrkow (ninety
miles southwest of Warsaw) in the
north and Stopnica (sixty-two miles
southeast of Kieloa) in the south.
A big Russian army is gathering to
meet them and a great battle probably
will be fought In Poland instead of on
Iho borders of Poland and Silesia.
In the north, if the reports are to
be believed, the Russians seem to
have checked the German invasion
from east Prussia, and have compelled
the Germans to retrace their steps, ex
cept on the right wing, which still fs
fighting around Ossowetz.
The latest report on the movements
of the German emperor is that ho has
loft Breslau from which point the in
vasion of Poland was launched, for
Thorn, West Prussia.
' The chief of the Russian general
staff said: "Tho Russian 'steam roll
er' is in operation. The right wing of
our active army has crushed the Ger
man offensive in Suwalki Province,
and we are again ou i
lift has' diminished the Austrian de
fensive so that heavy German re-en
fo'reements now hold the lines before
Cracow: our center is moving stead-
lily, expelling the Germans from Rus
sian Poland.
"Czar Nicholas has left for the front
to witness the complete success of his
Imperial army and to aid Grand Duke
Nicholas, the commander In chief, in
what we expect will show the utter
superiority of the Russian armies. . At
every point our arms are victorious."

OPENING OF
REVIVAL IS
PROMISING
If the opening service can be taken
as a prophecy of the success o the
service at the Christian church, a
great meeting has begun. A large
audience filled both auditoriums and
the song service conducted by Mrs.
Plott was full of inspiration.
i The evangelist was formally intro
duced by Rev. G. Lyle Smith, the pas
tor, who stated that this was Mr. Mar
shall's second meetihg in Chickasha
and the fourth meeting with him, thus
expressing a compliment and confi
dence of the very highest type.
Mr. Marshall prefaced his sermon
with a solo, "At the Setting of the
Sun," a song written by Mrs. Auan
Torrey Henderson, assistant pastor of
the church. The song was well re
ceived and highly commended.
'Prepare to Meet Thy God." Amos
4:12, was the text of the sermon, the
evangelist said In part: "We must
all meet God. There is no possible
way to evade it. Not to be prepared
to meet Hiin is the most distressing
thing that can come to man. To be
without the 'wedding garment" is the
greatest of all mistakes. 'We must all
appear before the judgment seat ot
Christ to render an account of the
the deeds done in the body,' is one of
the plainest statements of the Bible.
We should make the preparation now.
Solomon said, 'Remember now thy
Creator in the days of thy youth.'
Jesus said, 'Seek you first the King
dom of God and his righteousness and
all these things shall be added unto
you.'
"Get right with God and with His
humanity. Cease to do evil, learn to
do good. Knter the true way of faith
and obedience to God, and run with
patience the race thnt is set before us
and there can be no failure."
Mr. -Mullins has 'been detained in
Coffey, Mo., where he has held a very
successful revival. He will reach

Germans Claim Capture.
By United Press.
Berlin, Oct. 5. The war office stat
ed today that at Antwerp, forts Hierre,
Waslheil and Konigschoof and the in
termediate redoubts, with thirty guns,
had all been captured by the Germans.
It was stated that the capture of
these points makes possible an attack
on the Inner forts and the city itself.
By United Press. '
London, Oct. 5. The British artil
lery that has been posted inside of
Antwerp, it is believed, proves the as
sumption that the British general staff
is directing the Belgian campaign.
There is a growing belief that unless
the allies soon lift the siege, Antwerp
must inevitably surrender. It is be
lieved that is why the allied line is
being lengthened to the north.
It is expected that the big force at
Ostend. including the Russians, will
possibly be sent to Antwerp. The Ger
mans have isolated the St. Catherine,
Wavre and Waelheim forts at the ex
treme southern end.
The military expert of the London
Ttimes says:
"However much we may bend back
the German right whig and relieve
Antwerp, whatever confidence we have
that the shock of the Russian masses
in the east will prove decisive, we
must not entertain the slightest illus
ion regarding the hard and trying con
dition which await all the allies in the
future in operating against Germany
reduced to the defensive.
'Germany still is united. Her re
sources grow. All her arsenals are
working at full pressure. Her fleet
will strike when the hour comes prob
ably in co-operation with Uu army.
"The line ot the Aisne, when forced,
may prove to be only one of many
similar lines prepared in the rear of
it. It may take a very long time for
the allies to compel Germany to fool
a weakness. It therefore devolves up
on the allies to look forward to a long
war."

Lindsay a Husky Bunch.
Before the kickoff, those who sized
the two teams up, saw that Lindsay ,
had the call on the locals some few
pounds to the man. The extra weight
counted for nothing and the Lindsay
defense was brushed aside like chaf.
Likewise their offensive formations
were crumpled up like so much paper
and they failed to make first down a
single' time except on penalizations or
recovered punts, while Chickasha was
held for downs but twice.
Chickasha kicked to Lindsay's 1$
yard line, the ball being returned
yards before pulled down. The Chick
asha line promptly held, Riddle, Heff
ner and Pool doing heroic work on the
defensive and Lindsay was forced to
kick.
Touchdown in Three Minutes.
From the first blast of the whistle
until, the ball was down behind the
Lindsay goal line, but three minutes
had elapsed. When Chickasha had re
covered the Lindsay punt, Hamilton
plunged through the line for eight
yards, Goetting ducked through an end
for five and then went over for the
first touchdown of the season. Whit
taker missed goal.
Following the first touchdown, the
game became a procession and it was
ever but a matter of a few minutes
'between touchdowns. Three were reg
istered, in the first imartor, three in
the second, four iu the third and three
iu the last.
Kicking Department Weak.
In the kicking department, Chicka
sha Is woefully weak. Out of thirteen
chances at goal Whittaker kicked five.
A majority of the chances were almost
directly in front of the goal posts.
Just how tho punting end of the
booting department stands remains to
be seen, for it was never necessary
for the locals to punt. Chickasha at
tempted one kick from placement but
failed.
