of breaking Into Franco. Further to

Beem to be making no advance. Tho
latest roport Is that tho French havo
recaptured Muelhauson and it still
seems true that, after olghtcon days
of lighting, Uiero are no Germau troops
on French soil.
On Germany's eastern frontier there
has been considerable outpost fighting
which would indicate that tho Rus
sians aro completing tholr work of

New York. Tho Associated Press

Paris. A noWB dispatch from Tar

statesman, who is on his way from
Dlnrritz to Russia, as declaring thnt
tho European war would not las moro

London Shows Little Excitement.
London. London displayed little ex
citement when it became known that
British troops were In France. Thero
wero no crowds around tho bulletins
and no rush for newspapers. Thero
wns a stolid, repressed, earnest crowd
in the pnrks where tho recruits nre
drilled and nt tho barracks where the
trained soldiers go through evolutions.
The general routine Is little disturbed,
oxcopt for tho unceasing movement
through tho streets of troops, ammuni
tion trains and hospital corps. Tail
ors and saddlers aro rushed with busi

Hong Kong whllo tho vessel was enter

London. A troublesome problem of
tho war Is llkoly to bo tho housing an5
guarding of prisoners. AH ready
moro than 5,000 Germans havo been
captured botoro tho battles havo really
begun. Tho Belgians are sending a
largo proportion of theso prisoners In
