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 world. 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 6,000 wounded. 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.
