Paris, Sept. 23.—In a furious night attack opened by the allies simultan eously along the whole line between the Aisne and the Olse rivers at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning, the Ger mana were surprised in their trenches and driven out at several points on the German right, both sides suffer ing very heavy losses. Soon after the attack opened the Germans directed an attack against the allies' lines further to the east, but were finally driven back In a hand-to-hand encounter, in which line after line clashed In terrific bay onet charges in the dark.- During yesterday severe fighting occurred along the entire battle line, which has narrowed to about 90 miles. About & o'clock in the after noon a lull was perceptible, the Ger mans being exhausted from the re peated counter-attacks directed against the French and British, who invariably repulsed them, generally with gains to the allies. Allies Attack With Fury. During the early part of the night the engagement had narrowed to ac tivity of the heavy guns and the fire was desultory. But at 2 o'clock in the' morning a preconcerted attack by the allies opened with' unprecedented fury. Artillery, rapid firing guns and small arms crashed forth as If at a given signal and the fire was over whelming. On the allies' left the onslaught was conducted with the greatest vigor, for here the attacking French and British had made the greatest ad vances and the troops were buoyed up by the full enthusiasm of their triumphs. The French gunners had the range and raked the German trenches with a galling fire. Under cover of this and the rapid flrers which swept the top. of the line of trenches, the Brit ish and French cavalry and Infantry advanced and stormed them. Germans Taken by Surprise. The energy of the attack took the Germans by surprise and after a fierce struggle at the trenches the Germans were driven back. The Ger man resistance was desperate*. It was not until they were overwhelmed by numerically stronger forces that they were swept from their poslttMi. Fresh troops, hitherto not in aotlon. were brought up by the French to d*r. clde the battle further to the .Mat. The vigor with which this eni ment was fought 'rivalled that o1 clash against the German right. Here the German counter-attack opened the Cray and the Impetus of. the of fensive movement seemed to hold ttw donr te the attack. Baareneta agape Of the lunged and struck and the two line* swayed back and forth In a Titanic struggle until there arrived the rein forcements to the support of the French line. These were Immediate ly hurled Into the front line and their energy turned the tide of the battle. The Germans were hurled back, but the allies gain In ground was not con siderable. Nowhere were the allies forced back—the "steel wall" held. General .Toffre Optimistic. Although Minister of War Miller and today declared that the "Battle of Two Rivers," Aisne and the Olse, probably would last for some days, the report he received from General Joffre, In supreme command of the allied forces, was very optimistic. »i I General Joffre's report says: "The turning movement of the allies' left continues. General Von Kluck's ar my is retiring, and the Indications are that the German center has reached the high tide of Its resistance and alao will soon be forced to retire to a new position." "The completion of the allies' llnee opposite the German center from Al sace to the Argonnes effectively de prives the German forces of "any great scope of movement. tj The French official report Issued In the afternoon, from which the mid night report declared there had been no change, stated the Germans !kf WB 3 their western wing, and «1k re pulsed attacks on the eastern wing.
