By P. I. PHILLIPS.
Staff correspondent of The London
Daily News, New York World and Omaha
BRUSSELS. Aug. 18. (Via London, Spe
cial Cablegram to New York World and
Omaha Bee.)-Our train wss timed to
leave Namur at 8:13 this morning, but at 8
o'clock the trsln had not left. Then came
a piece of news that had vital Interest.
Inntesd of going to Brussels direct, the
train wss run first to Charlerol, In a
direct line west. This could only mean
that the Germans had pustied up towards
Wavre on the direct route, thua the
enemy have reached the main, toad from
Namur to Brussels ana are repeating the
tactics used at Li tie of preeslng round
the north. As usual the Uhlsns hsv been
employed for this business, but so far I
have not heard of much fighting.
Namnr Well Prepared.
The Germans also are pressing round
on the south, but the great cut of the
Meuee and its high cliffs are likely to
hold them, and especially prevent much
cavalry work. Certainly there, whatever
the result, the Germans will lose enor
mously along the Meuee.
Namur Itself Is evidently well prepared
to fight a tremendous bsttle and for the
Germans to surround It while making a
front attack as In the rase of Liege, will
take enormous numbers.
The Germans have, however, drswn off
a llttlo from their northern attack or at
least have concentrated more men be
tween Namur and Louvaln, the headquar
ters of the Belgian field army.
Allies Mast Attack.
By pressing on to Wavre they have
shown their hand and their plan In at
tempting cut the Belgian army In two.
Another thing, obvious also from this
Is that the big battle every one Is expect
ing, will not come from the German side.
It will not come until they are attacked
In force, and to say when or where that
f I will be would be giving away too much
oi tnt position or an armies.
