In his efforts to extricate himself he had lost his bearings, he said and did not know the way out of town. The visitor was accompanied by a young woman, who he stated was his wife, and she also appealed to Mr. Wiseman to help them to locate them selves.

GERMANS MOW FOES IN FIGHT ON THE ASSNE Paris Says Allies Have Lost More Men In Two Days Than During Any Previous Period of the War.

FRENCH ADMIT BIG DEFEAT IN EFFORTS TO CORRAL AN ARMY Von Kluck and Von Buelow Close Gap Between the Mighty Armies and take Offensive in the Greatest Battle of the War Austrians are Holding Own With Russians. (By Cable to The Tribune). Palis, Sept. 17 In the battle on the Aisne river, upon wliirli depend whither the Germans shall again threaten Paris or be forced from France, the Allies have lost more men during the two days than during atty pre vious period of the war. The whole situation at the front has changed, according to the official statement given out by the French War office tonight. The fighting con tinues with the utmost violence north of the Aituie. in a desperate effort of the Allies to gain retribution for the terrible losses inflicted their ranks hy the Germans big fire. The Allies were repulsed in a fierce counter attach made hy the Kaic er's forces from a strong entrenched position on the Germaa right where Gen. von Kluck has received reinforcements and taken the Offensive. Th French also received reinforcements near Noynn. the extreme left of the Allies' line, hut this added strnegth did not gain any ground for the French an English. Von Kluck was reverted tod.iv to he wil'.di in- Mm lines closer to (hose of Von lluelow, who in turn in rapidly rinsing up the tca, between him and the main German center. This would appear to indicate the failure or Gen. Darmadc' stroke at 'li-rear of the Germans' ri;rht wine in which an at tempt was made to cut off Von h luck's army from (he main Teuton force. The French admit their failure to isolate Von Kluck and the rival armies are now engaged in frontal attacks and counter attacks along the whole battle line, with yet n decisive result, but on the two days' firhtinc the Germans have shown up to I'ood advantage. London, Sept. 17 Official announcement from Petrograd tonight indi cates that a terrific battle is on between the Austrian and Russian forces Just west of the San river, where the Austrian center is desperately chal lenging every inch of the Russian advance. If the Austrians can continue to hold its ground or retreat very slowly, then the embers of Austrian hope mav he fanned into flame again. Germany is reported to be straining every resource to relieve the Austrians in their extermity. Berlin, Sept. 17, by wireless via Sayville, L. I. An official renort given out at army headquarters at midnight (Wednesday) says that the French front remains unchanged. The French attacks on a number of points Tuesday night and Wednesday were successfully repulsed by the Germans, who made a number of victorious attacks. Owing to illness. Gen. von Hausen, former commander of the second or Saxon army, has been replaced by G n. von Einem. former Minister of War. Gen von Hausen is G8 years old. Another change in leadership has taken place in the Fourteenth Reserve Corps, where Gen. von Schubert has been replaced by Quartermaster-Gen eral von Stein, the well-known editor of the official war reports and author of laconic war bulletins. It is reported here from Vienna that 1800 Galirian traitors have been brought into Graz, Austria, where they are awaiting sentence. .They are said to have been paid by Russia to signal the positions of Austrian troops to the Russian army. Washington, Sept. 17 Germany has acknowledged the I'nited States' informal inquiry concerning further peace overtures with a noncommittal reply. President Wilson told callers this afternoon. He declined to disclose the contents of the reply, which came from the German Chancellor. Ger many's declination is said to have given the following reasons: Germany would be glad to listen to mediation suggestions, hut is abso lutely prohibited by the attitude of England. Germany 'vill not stop lighting 3u long as Knjlad declares this must he a war to the finish. If this is to be a war to the finish, as Fngluld declares daily, then tier- many will fight on. If the world at large hories for di; armament, then the crushing of Ger many is the poorest way to accomplish it. Germany is willing to call the war a draw. Such a solution, she main tains, would be most conducive to future peace in Europe and to disarma ment. Complete victory on either side would not lead to staple conditions. There must he something more substantial in the offer than the mere tender of good offices of the I'nited States. While recognizing the kindly interest of the Government, yet it contains no assurances from the allies. Germany in Europe must not be dismembered. While negotiations might be considered concerning colonies, the German Empire must remain intact. Germany must be left alone by other Powers around her in the future.
