LONDON. Aug. 12. (Special Ca
Megrani . to New York World and
Omaha Dee.) The newg from Bel
gulrr today Involve! two significant
facts: : Flnt, that the German
cavalry outposts have aklrted
through the country west of Brus

Invested' Katnur ' the great Belgian
fortress at'the' Junction of the Meuse
and ' the Eambrei : now occupied by
the French. '
According to dispatches received
today from Belgium, the Germans, in
their advance to meet the allies, split,
their army like a forked tree, the
northerly branch of which rushed
through Dlest and Louvaln, deci
mated the Belgian regiments that
opposed them, while the southerly
branch moved down the Meuse tow
The allies appear to be en

appears also that there is a great
body of the ' French army back of
Namur toward the French frontier.

The French made a vigorous, but
Ineffectual, attempt to rush by
forced marches to the rescue of the 1
Belgians, who fought so deteroitn- j
edly to stop the advance of the I
northerly army of Germans at Dlest, I
AeDschot and elsewhere on the way I
to Lou v1b and Brussels, but the at
tempt was bUattd and the Belgians
were forced for self-preservation to
fall tack upon Antwerp, where they
threatened the German right flank.
The French then retired to their
own lines, prepared to resist any at
tempt of the German southerly army
to advance to and beyond Namur.
The unsuccessful attempt to rein
force the Belgians may explain cer
tain dispatches which told vaguely
of rear guard movements of the
French In the vicinity of Tlerlemont.

I learn from military sources that about

fears of another more drastic are ap
