PAY ANY PRICE No Thought of Human Life in Great Struggle Now Waging at Verdun. 250,000 Have Fallen. London, March 5.—After a day of furious fighting the village of Douau mont, key position to Verdun from the north, tonight is precariously re tained by the Germans. ^Th6 official statement issued in TJafis at midnight reports tiiat late last evening the Germans were driven from the town my a counter attack but won it back this morning. The battle is marked by alternate advanc es and retirements by the forces en gaged. A hurricane of fire is breaking over the shattered ruins of Daumont. The streets and by-paths are piled high with dead. Eery open space is swept by shrapnel and machine guns in the hands of the French, who occupy the outlying crests. The battle at Douamont has been raging for a week and has cost the lies, it is estimated of more than 250,000 men. Thousands mere have been wounded. Smash Slowly Onward. In the seven days of fighting the Germans have practically been held in check at this paint, although on other portions of the battle front they have smashed in toward Verdun. Their total gains, as reported to night comprise something more than 457 square miles of territory, 20,000 prisoners, 115 guns and 161 machine guns. The battle has been raging with only one short respite since February 22, 21 days. According to semi official informa tion the German straeegy contemplat es a systematic bombardment of the Verdun positions until, laid in ruins by the heavy howitzers, they will be easy prey for smashing, surging at tacks by great masses of infantry. The Teutons' tactics aimed for the first time in this war at the preserva tion of effectives, will, it is believed here, result in a battle which Is likely to last for another week or more. In pursuance of their plan the Ger mans have the entire outer ring or Verdun forts, entending from the sec tion wast of the Meuse, across the northern line and on the entire chain of heights which rise from the Meuse plain under fire. Tons of steel are being poured into them at every hour of the day : nd night. The Germans are reported today to have renewed their assaults in the re gion of Vaux. immediately south of the village of the same name, which has been reported destroyed by their gun fire. The French hold the summit of the knoll which dominates the village from the south. Parts of the town had been taken and retaken repeatedly and each time the fortune of battle has clanged more dead from the thick masses of German assailants have been added to the piles behind their surviving comrades have sought protection. Sacrifice Without Parallel. Each time remnants of regiments already cut to pieces were pushed ahead by other bodies of troops surg ing on the field of battle until the ground was strewn with bodies. Eye witnesses assert that nothing at Charleroi on the Marne, along the Yser or in the Champagne equaled the secrifices which the troops of the Ger man crown prince already have made for the village of Douaumont in the battle of Verdun.
