Preliminary Movements Show, However, That Germans Realize Parin:
Is of Little Stragetic Value if Allies Are Left Free in Field
London, Sept. 7.—The belief is growing that a great and decisive battle is be
ing fought at Verdun, the strong fortress of France on the Meuse river near the
If the fourth German army, marching southward, cuts off the letgeat of the
French eastern armies, which recently have been holding the Germans in check,
between Toul, a fortified town, fourteen miles west of Nancy, and Espinal, also
strongly fortified and near the Alsace frontier, it might repeat the coup which in
1870 drove General Charles Denis Sauter Bourbaki and his army of 15,000 men in
Hopeful critics are speculating on the possibility that the Germans' swing
around to the south means an effort on the part of the invaders to make sure of their
retreat through the Meuse district, but more likely it is a scheme to strike soch a
paralyzing blow to the French army a6 to render the investment of Paris a safe op
The southerly movement of the Germans may effect the junction of the crown,
prince's army and the army of Bavaria, which has been held on the defensive in Lor
raine. Thus the Germans would advance from the east and north in a vast, envel- V"
oping movement, destined to crush the allies* right wing by sheer weight of num
bers, just as the allies' left was pushed back during the last fortnight.
These preliminary movements, if showing nothing else, at least prove that
the Germans realize that the siege of Paris, even its occupation, is quite worthless
from a strategic standpoint, while the allies are free in the field.
^rrobwation^of the above, mentioned lfreQry'i* c^ntained in a dispatch item
el, as the deciding conflict as far as France is con6^rtied. ^Fins dispatch stateis that
the opposing forces are almost equally divided, but that the French have the advant
age and are fighting from the defensive position of their own choosing.
Another significant factor is the general understanding that Emperor Will
iam, in person, is inspecting the field of operations in this neighborhood. Reports
disagree as to the emperor's exact whereabouts, but all agree that he is in the vicin
ity of the Franco-German border. The conflict in this region must have decisive re
sults. The capture of the great French fortress would be a terrible blow to France,
while the repulse of the German army would give the French a chance to assume
the offensive, a course needed on account of the moral effect in the western theatre
Meanwhile, mines in the North sea are becoming such a menace that it may
be closed to navigation during the night time. An admiralty notice, recently issued,
gives the right to put out coast lights at any time, which make it difficult for the
German mine layers to continue their work.
Situation in France.
I«OTidon, Sept. 7.—The official in

day a summary of the situation in
France. It says that five quiet days
since the action on September 1' have
been occupied by the British with re

The British army is now south of
Marne and in line with the French
on the right and left. The French
army, it Is stated, defeated three Ger

in disorder near Guise on August 29.
The' official statement says that the
British successfully guarded the left
flank of the whole line of the French
army until the seventh and fifth ar
mies of the French came into opera
tion on the British left and right. The
French reinforcements greatly reliev
ed the strain and pressure on the al
