But what was difficult live dayB ago has been rendered practically im possible now by tlie tremendous ac tivity of 50,000 skilled civilians during the last thirty hours In strengthening Liege's defense works and by the ap parefit massing of the French and British troops to the westward of Liege. Reports from the scene of conflict differ here Monday night, but assum ing that the Germans should over power Liege by their overwhelming numbers and at the expense of an in calcuable waste of lives or have al ready done so, the kaiser's legions must encounter in a great battle the coalition of forces somewhere be tween Namur and Brussels, probably on the field of Waterloo. Meanwhile with the tremendous spur given the French army by the occupation of southern Alsace, the whole force now is advancing toward German territory, where the first great impact of the main armies is expected.
