In the owner nf their intention.

Teuton Cavalry Enter Suburbs
London, Aug. 20. The advance of
German troops around and above
Brussels and even into what are prac
tically the suburbs of Antwerp is in
dicated in Reuter dispatches from Ant
werp, which report that German cav
airy has been encountered near Ileren-
thals, fifteen miles east of Antwerp,
and also near Turnhout, which is
twenty-four miles northeast of Ant
werp and close to the Dutch frontier.
A Brussels dispatch to the Havas
agency say that according to The Peo.
pie the Germans again attacked Diest.
Thej- appeared to have come back in
force and bombarded the town, whose
inhabitants fled in terrior.
rue German artillery also is re
ported to have bombarded Tirlemont.
Another Havas dispatch from Brus
sels, sent in very vague form, leads
to the belief that the German cavalry
mado a surprise advance close to the
Belgian positions defendingBrussels.
They encamped for the night, but a
Belgian aviator discovered their po
sition and revealed it to headquarters
in time. Cavalry waa hurried forward
and after some marching and counter-
marchlne the Germans retired.
Gain Both Banks.
A Havas dispatch from Brussels
gives an official communication con
cerning the present state of the field
operations in Belgium.
'After having lost much time and
a great number of men, and, besides,
important wfcr material," the commu
nication says, "The Prussian right
wing has succeeded In gaining on both
banks of the Muese.
'The German troops on the north
bank of the Meuse comprise sections
of different army corps, whose efforts
have been directed toward the capture
of Liege, and who are now disengaged.

There also are bodies of cavalry,
thanks to which the Germans have
been able to make considerable dis
turbance, and extend themselves north
"On the south the allied Belgian and
French armies have been able to re
pulse them, but on the north, on the
contrary, they have had a free field
and could penetrate in small bodies
far into the country.
Waste Fifteen Days.
"In a word, the Germans have taken
a number of our positions, but have
wasted fifteen days in arriving at this
result, which is greatly to the honor
of our army. It is not a question of
single battle evolutions ,or captures
of certain parts of the country or of
towns. These matters are secondary
In regard to the object assigned our
troops in the general dispositions.
This aim cannot be revealed.
"Fighting is proceeding on the
whole front, extending from Basle.
Switzerland, to Diest, Belgium, and in
these numerous contacts the more the
opposing armies approach each other
and the nearer come the deciding bat
tles, the more one must expect to hear
of an advantage on this side and of
yielding on that.
"In operations so vast and with
those engaged using modern arms, too
great attention must not be paid to
the operations in our immediate vicin
ity. An evolution ordered In a partic
ular previously determined aim Is not
necessarily a retreat.
Delay an Advantage.
"The engagements of the last few
days have had the results of render
ing our adversaries very circumspect.
The delay of the enemy's advance had
the greatest advantage for our general
plan of operation.
"There is need for us to play Into
the hands of the Germans. That Is
the motive of the movement now be
ing carried out. Far from being beat
en, we are making arrangements ror
beating the enemy under the best pos
sible conditions. The public should In
this matter place full confidence in
the commander of the army and re
main calm, and trustful of the out
come of the struggle, not doubtful.
Meanwhile the newspapers should ab
stain from mentioning the movement
of troops. Secrecy is essential to the
success of our operations.'
