CLAIM TO HAVE ACHIEVED GREAT VICTORY IN BATTLE IN EAST PRUSSIA. Throa Hundred pfficera Among the Captured, the Casualty List Being Large, While the Rueeian Ar tillery Wae Deetroyed. t Washington.—The irorman embassy ■on Tuesday gave out a message from Berlin, received by wireless, claiming that the German forces had captured near Allenstein 70,000 Russian prison ers, including two commanding gen erals, 300 officers and the entire equip ment of Russian artillery. The official statement of the big German victory against the Russians attracted wide attention. Military ob servers pointed out that if the num ber of Russians taken prisoners had been correctly estimated at 70,000 there must have been great casualties, no -mention of which is made. The statement conflicts to some ex tent with one issued by the French embassy earlier in the day, which »peaks of the progress of the Russian offensive army. The official claim of the Germans, however, that 70,000 Russians were captured exceeds in magnitude any operation thus far re corded. , The London Times' correspondent at Amiens reports that "the Germans carnet over us like a flood raised by a storm. (During the first month of the war more than 2,000,000 German vol unteers came forward. The chief of the German sanitary department offi cially-declared there are many proofs that the English and French are using dum-dum cartridges. "The state of health of the German army is good, noted by hygienists ac companying the army." CALL OUT RESERYT8T8. Frenchmen Making Desperate Efforts to Check Advancing Germans.

Acknowledges Defeat on Sea, But Says Allies Have Been .So Badly Worsted That Germany M Send Men Against Ridels ay Now n*. -New York.—Count Johann von Bernstoff, the German embassador, after surveying the European situa tion as revealed In the day - « news and in dispatches from Berlin by way of Sayville, L. I., gave an interview on Monday which shows that he be lieves the crisis for Germany is past. The aims of the general »taff are at tained. France is defeated and the battleground 4n western Europe la In such a condition that Germany can now recall great numbers of troops to meet the Russian Invasion, accord ing to Count von Bernstorff'a belief. A resume of the embassador's views follows: 1. The war Is won. The coalition has been defeated In western Europe. German defeat on land is now out of the question. 2. The alms of the German gener al staff have h*wn attained. The al lies have been oo badly and so sud denly worsted (ha! Germany is free to withdraw, as n( has begun to do, great numbers oi men to ward off the Russian Invasion. 3., The defeat on the seas is ac kncxwledrod, with th? proviso that the defeat was to rave been expected, since the German navy has always been meant simp!., to defend tbe coast line, and that it the English as sumed the growing navy was meant for any other purpose they labored under a sadly mythical conception. 4, Germany did not begin the war. She did not want the war. She is ready for peace at any moment. 6. Germany'» victory means a great advance of democracy in the empire. The nation can never forget how the whole people rose as one m*n against an unjust attack, nor how the leader of the Socialists made a speech amid the wild cheers of the Conservative party, which stood up to a man, waving their handkerchiefs at him.

HIGHLAND RESINENT NOTING TO THE FRONT * ¥ GERMAN WARSHIPS FIRST IMPORTANT NAVAL ACTION OF WAR RESULT8 IN VICTORY FOR ENGLISHMEN. Two Cruisers and Two Torpodo-boat Destroyers Sent to Bottom, While Ono Cruiser Flees Afire and In Sinking Condition. London.—Two German cruisers and two German torpedo-boat destroyers were sunk by the British fleet on Au gust 28. A third cruiser was set afire and left slnklhg. This, the first sea battle of the world war, occurred off Helgoland. No British ships were lost In the battle, and the British loss of life was not heavy. In addition to the two torpedo-boat destroyers and three cruisers, many of the German torpedo-boat destroyers were damaged. Twenty-nine killed and thirty-eight wounded was the price in men paid by the British for the naval acton. An official statement Issued Sun day night says that of 1,200 men com posing tbe ere-ws of the five German warships sunk off Heliogoland only 330 were saved. The attack on the German fleet off Helgoland was Initiated by Brit ish destroyers, according to accounts given by the crews ot the vessels which participated. The destroyers got fairly close to the German ships before they were discovered. Then a cannonade from the German ships and forts was opened on them and they gradually drew the German cruisers toward the sea. For a time the Germans were in a position which gave them the advant age, British destroyers having to bear the brunt ot the battle. During one of the hottest phases of the fight two British destroyers got in between two German cruisers, which feared to Are upon the British lest they hit each other, while four British destroyers engaged a third German cruiser and put her out of action. Finally the British battle crusers and light cruisers arrived on the scene and quickly put an end to the away part of her bridge first of all, and then smashed her searchlights and killed her commander, Lieutenant Commander Bartellot, and William Butcher, his signal man. Accounts ot the battle say It was perfect in execution as well plan. -Led at dawn by a fearless small detachment, the destroyers crept within the German lines be tween Helgoland and the German coast. The bight of Helgoland Is Inside the formidable defenses of Helgoland island, which was ceded to Germany In 1890. The estuary of the river Elbe, into which the Kiel canal flows, opens out into this bay. Helgoland itself Is the base for torpedo craft, but It is apparent from the official re port that the fighting took place much nearer the German mainland than Helgoland. Thla is more remarkable because Helogland Is the center of a chain of fortifiqfl islands that are sup posed to make the waters inside the chain impregnable to attack by such a large force as Sir David Beatty took with him. fight. The Liberty, one of the British de stroyers whch took part in the buttle off Helgoland, was hit by a shell, which shattered her mast and tore as In Planning Purchase of Ships.
