THE UAIIHE DAILY HIS HEART BLED OVER WAR Kaiser Told President in a Statement Complaining About Allies A DENIAL FROM FRANCE That Dumdum Bullets Were Found on Her Soldiers London, Sept. 11. The "Daily Mail" publishes the text of the Kaiser's tele gram to President Wilson as received from its Rotterdam correspondent. It is as follows; "I consider it my duty, sir, to inform you, as the most notable representative of the principles of humanity, that after the capture of the French fort at Longwy my troops found in that place thousands of dum-dum bullets which had been manufactured in special works by the French govern ment. "Such bullets were found not only on French killed and wounded soldiers and on French prisoners but also on English troops. You know what terrible wounds and awful suffering are caused by these bullets and that their use is strictly for bidden by the generally recognized rules of international warfare. "I solemnly protest to you against the way in which this war is being waged by our opponents, whose methods are making it one of the most barbarous in history. Besides the use of these awful weapons the Belgian government has openly incited the civil population to participate in the fighting and has for a long time carefully organized their re sistance. The cruelties practised in this guerilla warfare, eveif by' women and priests, toward wounded soldiers and doctors and hospital nurses were such that eventually my generals were com pelled to adopt the strongest measures to punish the guilty and frighten the bloodthirsty population from continuing their shameful deeds. Some villages, and even the old town of Iuvain, with the exception of its beautiful town hall had to be destroyed for the protection of mv troops. "My heart bleeds when I see such measures inevitable and when I think of thp many innocent people who have lost their houses and property as a result of nd pr of the the misdeeds of the guilty. . "William I Ft. France Gives Kaiser the Lie. Bordeaux, Sept. 11 The French for eign office yesterday issued an emphatic denial that French troops have used dum -dum bullets or that any have been found on French soldiers or in the cap tured fortress of Ixngwy. In discus sing the charges made by the emperor of Germany in his telegram to President Wilson Foreign Minister Theophile Del casse said: "The French government will formal ly protest the German allegation that the allies are using dum-dum bullets. The story is absolutely without founda tion. There is not the slightest doubt here that this entire charge is a well planned manoeuvre cleverly designed to turn public indignation in neutral coun tries, especially the United States, from the German atrocies in Belgium and France." WILLING TO HELP. But President Won't Influence Interstate Commerce Commission. Washington, Sept. 1 1. President Wil son has acceded to the request of the railway executives who asked him to call the attention of the country to the pressing necessity for support of rail way credits by the co-operative and sympathetic support of the public anJ all governmental authorities. He takes the position, however, in a letter to Chairman Trumbull of the Chesapeake & Ohio, that it would be improper for him to seek to influence the interstate commerce commission on questions of rate increases. The letter will he made public at the White House later. NEW FREIGHT RATES. May Be Put in Effect on Ten Days No tice. Washington, Sept. 1 1.

FINANCIAL SKY CLEARING. New York Bond Dealers to Resume Operations. New. York. Sept 11. Further evidence of a clearing of the financial situation was offered yesterday when the commit tee of bankers and bond dealers appoint ed to regulate the purchase and sale of bonds announced that in its judgment the time had come to resume operations. The committee based its conclusions largely on the fact that New York City financial needs have been taken care of satisfactorily, thereby clearing the for eign exchange situation. The commit tee also is of the opinion that the plac ing of securities by dealers with private customers should be approved where the securities can be sold without disturb ance to the collateral loan situation. The committee depreciates anything tending toward public quotations. The committee also discourages transactions with so-called bargain hunters and ap proves the closing out of the bills pend ing under that head. It has considered the question of maturing ablugations of cities and corporation and believes that the present situation does not warrant any attempt to issue time bonds but that all refundings should be accom plished through short time financing.

French on How British Army Saved the Allies' Left MARVELOUS RETREAT FROM BELGIAN LINE Menaced Frequently by Dis aster in Most Extreme Form London, Sept. 11. The British retreat from the Belgian line southward to Par is, described in detail yesterday by the commander-in-fhief, General Sir John French, cannot fail to elicit the utmost admiration, and will take its place, in history as a masterpiece of strategy. In the face of tremendous odds, consist ing of five entire German army corps, or 2")0,000 men, and outnumbered four to one in artillery, General French brought off his army virtually intact. Not only did he accomplish this, but very large losses were inflicted on the enemy, who was, moreover, greatly har assed, hampered, and exhausted in bis advance by the work of the British cav alry. To his aeroplanes General French attributes no small degree of the suc cess of the operation, highly praising the heroism and devotion of the flying officers, who unhesitatingly faced not only atmospheric obstacles, but the fire of the enemy. Besides their invaluable service for reconnoissance, the aviation corps succeeded in destroying five of the German machines in battles in the air. According to the despatches General French's graphic account of the heroic fight made by the British expeditionary force to keep from being annihilated fell like a bombshell on the English public, who, it appears, have not been permit ted to know how hard pressed their armv has been. On Aug. 26 the British forces faced the bulk of the German strength and were in danger of being surrounded and destroyed. The heroic stand of General Smith-Dorrien on the British left undoubtedly saved the day. On this day tbe British stood alone, even the French cavalry, on account of the exhaustion of their horses, being un able to cover the retreat. General French's report gives the de tail of his retreat which began at Mons on Aug. 23 and ended at St. Quenbron on Aug. -28. In the course of it the general says: Trap at Maubeuge. "As the French troops were still re tiring I bad no support except from the fortress at Maubeuge, and determined attempts of the enemy to get around my left flank assured me that it was his intention to press me against that place and surround me. I felt not a moment must be lost in retiring to an other position. "This operation was full of danger and difficulty, not only owing to the very superior force in my front, but the exhaustion of my troops. The retire ment commenced early in the morning of the 2oth to a position near La Ca teau. "Although the troops had been or dered to occupy Cam bra i, I Cateau and Jjindrecies." and that the position and ground had, during the 2"tb, been partially prepared and intrenched, I had grave doubts, owing to information I received, regarding the accumulating strength of the enemy as to the wis dom of standing there to fight. "Moreover, the retirement of the French troops on my right continued, and I determined to make a great effort to continue the retreat till 1 could put ... , t i!.. a substantial onsiacie, sucn as mr Somme river or the Oise river, between the British and the enemy, and afford the former some opportunity for rest and reorganization. "Therefore, the corps commanders were ordered to retreat as soon as pos sible to a general line from St. Quentin . n : , General French then describes the march through all that day and until late in the evening, during which time he was incessantly harassed bv the en emy, who continued the attack late at night on the exhausted British. (,en- eral French continues: "General Sordet, commanding three ravalrr divisions, whom I had called to my assistance, though he rendered val uable aid later, was unable to give any support on tbe most critical day. the 2Un, owing to the exhaustion of his horses. The Saving of the Left Wing. "At daybreak on the 26th it became apparent that the enemy was throwing the bulk of Ins strength against tne leu ; of our position, and the guns of four German army corps being in position against it.

Sullivan Not to Have the President's Backing. Washington, Sept. 11. Roger Sulli van's nomination for senator from Ulf nois, brilliant as his victory was over the Bryan forces in that state, will not win him the support of the Wilson ad ministration. On the contrary, not only Mr. Sullivan but a good many other Democratic nominees are likely to find it a case of "hands ofT" when they ask he hiie House for a friendly word to help them in the election campaign. President Wilsons letter to Liiairman Doremua of the Democratic congression al committee was intended to be a very useful document. It will relieve him of participation in several contests where men have been nominated but are not just the type of citizen the president ggsjs iiiiiiiniiiiiipprr iiiiiiiiiiiii iiii!

The Indiana politicians are unlikely to secure the president's support for their state ticket. The Hooaiers do not elect a governor this year, but they have nominated a state ticket which is backed by the Taggart machine. A sample of its quality may be seen fn the fact that Speaker Cook has been nominated for secretary of state. While speaker Mr. Cook signed five bills increasing salaries in various departments, none of which ever had passed either House or Senate and all of which are now law, with the twn.A,.iarip eslmlv drawing their in creased emolument's. It is not charged that Speaker Cook committed mis irauu knowingly, but it is known that the Taggart "machine honeyfugled the bills through and that they must stand as i,u xiuiu Pure Turkish Cigarettes value in tne woriai 1 5C Him nnini! !inM!jijimui!j! iliiiiiiiiuuiiliii law until they are repealed.
