President Polncalre also gave out the news. In his message to King Al bert of Belgium, that French trooos were "shedding their blood with the Belgians on the battlefield today." The fighting around Liege, al though regarded In military circles as important, is considered as merely an opening movement In the cam paign, the plan of which has been kept well hidden by both German and French commanders-in-chief.

The operations of the Germans were baaed on tha hypothesis of rapid success. Consequencently they were organised with little regard for provisioning the army. The Belgians retarded the aa vance for seventy-nine houra, with the result that their army waa increased with tioops destined to reinforce Liege. Ths confidence of the Belgians has been increased by the suspension of hos tilities requested by the Germans.

' Ball ta Laxeaabara. LONDON. Aug. I. 7 a. m.) According to late dispatches thla morning quite an important engagement between French and Germans occurred in Belgian Luxemburg. The Eterle Belie of Brussels learns from sn official source that no decision has been reached on .the question of an armistice at Liege, an engagement having begun elsewhere. Another report states that an armistice of two houra only was. granted the Ger mans In order that -they might, collect their wounded.

It is con tended that the Germans learned nothing from recent wars and still adhere to methods adopted In the Franco-German war. BIk Movements Concealed. No hint has yet been given as to the position of tha bulk of the twenty-four. German army corps or of the twenty-one French army corps.' It Is known that several of the German corps are near the Russian frontier. The organisation of other corps from the Immense body of reserves must hsve occurred since the mobilisation.
