Onslaught of Its Enemy.
London, Aug. 31. After four daya of
desperate fighting, the British army in
France is rested, is refitted and rein
forced for the next great battle, accord
ing to an announcement by Lord Kitch
ener, secretary of state for war.
In a statement based on reports from
Sir John French, commander of the
British expeditionary forces, the secre
tary say that the British, after strug
gling against tremendous odds, retired
to a new line of defense, where they
have not been molested since Thursday.
Their casualties are between 5") and
Fine this fighting ceased, the French
on the Tight and left have brought the
German attaak to a standstill, it is
Lord Kitchener's statement. hv h was
issued through the me-iium of the offi
cial ir. formation bureau, follows:
"Although the dispatches of Sir John
Tttatk a to tie revest bailie Lave act
yet been received, it Is. jtossible now to
state what has been the British share
in the recent operations.
''there has, in fact, been a four days'
battle on the 23d, 24th, 25th and. 20th
of August. During the whole of this
period, the British, in conformity wiin
a ceneral movement of the French ar
inles. were occupied In resisting and
check Intr the German advance and hi

vlgorou. efforts iu superior number te
tirevent the safe withdrawal of the lint
ish army and to drive it into the fortress
of Mauueuge.
"This effort was frustrated by the
steadiness and skill with which the Brit
ish retirement was conducted, and, as on
the previous day very heavy losses far
in excess of anything suffered by us,
were Inflicted on the eneme who, in
dense formotlHii and in enormous masses,
marched forward again and yet again to
storm the British line.
"The British retirement proceeded on
the 2!th with continuous fighting, al
though not on the scale of the previous
two tlays, and -by the night ef the Bilth
the British army occupied the line ef
Camhral, Landreeies and fcelateau.

retirement at daybreak on the 2flth, but
the German attack. In which no less than
five arrnr corns were engaged, was so

of a most severe and desperate charao

fronted and at length extricated them-
cdvea In irood order, thouffh with seri
ous loss and under the heaviest artillery
fire. No guns were taken by the enemy
except where the . horawa had all been
killed or which were shattered by high
explosive shells.
'General French estimate that during
the whole of these operations from the
23d to the 6th, inclusive, his losue
amounted to 6,(H) ar 6.CKH) men. On the
other hand, the losses suffered by the
Germans in their attacks aero the open,
and through their dense formation, are
out of all proportion to those which we
have suffered.
"In Landrctie alone, on the 2oth, as
an instance, a uerman luiamry unjuc
advanced in close order into a narrow
street, which they oompk-tely filled. Our
machine guns were brought to bear on
this target from the end of the town.
The head of the column was swept away.
A frightful panic ensued, and it is esti
mated that 8(X) or TO dead ana wouna-
ed Germans were left in this street
"Another incident which may be chos
en from many like it, was the charge of
the German guard cavalry division upon
the British 12 cavalry brigade, when the
German cavalry were thrown back with
great losses and in absolute disorder.
These are notable examples of what has
taken place over practically the whole
front during. these engagements, and the
Germans have been made to pay extreme
prices for every forward march they
have made.
'Since the 2fith, aside from cavalry
fighting, the British army has not been
moisted. It has rented and refitted aft

"It must be remembered throughout
that the operation in France are vast
and that we are only on one wing of the
whole field of battle. The strategic posi
tions of ourselves and our allies aire such
that, whereas a decisive victory for our
arms in France probably would be fatal

But They Were Finally Landed in Court
One Heavily Sentenced. '
For his part in a scuffle on the pool
room steps at Websterville Saturday
night and subsequent events in which
he is alleged to have figured, Enrico .
Casartelli was sentenced to serve not
more than nine months nor less than
eight months in the house of correction
at Rutland before Judge H. W. Scott
this morning, and his brother, Salvatore
Casartelli, was fined $10 and costs on a
breach of the peace charge. Enrico's
heavy sentence is directly due to the
fact that he assaulted Officer William
McKane after the Jatter had been sum
moned to the pool-room to quiet the riot
ers. Officer McKane was nut under oath
before the magistrate to-dsy and
lowed to tell his story. S

Casarteili were embroiled in a fratricidal
struggle when he and Deputy Sheriff.

cer, McKane, two distinct blows a mo
ment before he leaped from the officer's
wagon after the arrest. He was re

in flames. The best efforts of the fire
men could not confine the fire to thi
building, and soon the larger block ad

there the current records of the town.

meat market in the basement, and much
of the remainder of the basement was
used for the storage of electrical sup
plies by the Bristol Electric Light Co.
and George E. Price. The hall on the
third floor, as well as the rooms former
ly occupied by the American Express Co.,
were vacant.
It s enly after extremely laborious
work for two hours that the sheila of
the two huildinc were left standing
and the adjoining building were saved.
Practically all the contents of both
blocks were a total loss, partially cov
ered by insurance.
