Complete silence is maintained
as to the fortunes of war In the
big fight understood to be In
progress somewhere along a line
extending through Belgium and
Luxemburg. Dispatches give evi
dence of the presence of masses
of German troops pushing their
way to the front behind an impen
etrable screen of cavalry, whose
dashes In search of Information
as to the whereabouts of the al
lied troops have resulted in sharp
clashes and heavy casualties.
The commanders of the allied
forces of French, British and Bel
gians will not permit anything
about their positions to become
public, and since the official note
made known the presence of a
large British expeditionary force
on the continent its movements
have been hidden from the outside
At Brussels It Is said there has
been no change since Tuesday In
tha position then reported to be
excellent for the allies.
The fate of the Liege forts Is
not definitely known. German
dispatches describe them as In the
hands of the German' army since
the arrival of heavy artillery,
while Belgian military authorities
assert they are still intact and
holding out bravely.
In Alsace-Lorraine the French
turning movement through south
ern Alsace appears from French
reports to be progressing favora
bly for the French, and this seems
to receive confirmation In a dis
patch sent out by the Wolff bu
reau, the German, official news
agency, saying two batteries of
guns were taken by the French,
who continued their march for
ward. All these reporta, however, re
fer to the preliminary meetings of
opposing bodies of troops leading
up to the great battle, which may
already have begun. -Even lead
ing Frenchmen - take occasion to
point out to their countrymen that
the decisive conflict is yet to come
and that too much reliance must
not be placed on reports of demor-
allsatlon among tha tiarmaa
troops. , ;
A stronji; forc of - German
troops is said to have attacked
Eydtkuhnen, a German town on
the Russian frontier,, which ' was
occupied by the Russians soon
after the outbreak of hostilities.
A French official note confirms
reports of a Servian victory at
Bhabats over an Austrian force of
80,000 men. The Anstrlans are
said to have lost 3,000 killed and
A Montenegrin army is reported
within two hours' march, of the
fortified Austrian seaports of
Ragusa, In Dalma'la. Tha Mon
tenegrins had already captured a
number of towna In tha vicinity.
Lee Eothschild, at
Home in Omaha, Dies
of Heart Failure
Lee Rothschild, head of the livestock
commission house of Lee Rothschild,
Mouth Omaha, died of heart failure at
his home, 3X21 Farnam street, at 4:46
o'clock yesterday afternoon. He Is sur
vived by Mrs. Rothschild, three sons,

age and bsd been In business In South
Omaha for more than a quarter of a
century. His commission bouse was one
of the best known In the west.
sWhile not ill, thoae close to Mr. Roths
child assert that he had not been feeling
perfectly well for some time, though he
hsd not complained. Yesterday he left
his offioe In South Omaha and reached

He went to his room and lay down on the
bed. At 4:43 o'clock one of the members
of the family had occasion to step Into

minutes later. No arrangements have
been made for the funeral.
