Tarn to the effect that the Oermana had
suffered a check near Verdun, led to the
hope that the advance had at last been
mopped, ... ,
LONDON. Sept. 6. (10:16 a. m.)-The
English public, hungry for newa of the
operations of the allied armlo In the
western theater of the war, had to content
itself today with the brief official com
munlcatlons Issued from Tarla and Ilor
deaut. Thee 6nly whetted the appetite.
Military experts believe the Oermana are
preparing for, a grand assault oo Paris
In the hope of .battering down the defenses
of the capital. . This Is because the in
vestment of rarln, while the huge mobile
army of the allies la outside the city,
would appear to be a logical part of
the swift German campaign.
News of the withdrawal of Oerman
troops toward ttie frusalan frontier Is not
generally credited her because with the
supreme effort In the west as a primary
object, the German are hardly likely to
weaken thtlr tore.
News fror northern Belgium Indicates
that the Belgian troops are recovering
from the gruelling' punishment Inflicted
on them by the German Invader and are
resuming their activities.
In eome quarters the belief prevailed
that German- plank of campaign may be
radically ehanged by the Austrian dis
asters, but ta (pit of this move observers
are of tha-opinion that Germany must
continue Its remorseless advance In. the
west without considering the misfortunes
of ita ally.
These -misfortune are now admitted by
Vienna, whence hae come official admis
sion that the Russians have captured
, Lemberg and Hallcs.
If Paris falls the effect already has been
more or less discounted In Ijondon as the
war office has managed to convey the Im
pression to' the public, that the capture
of the French capital means only the pro
longation Of the war. This phase of the
situation brought home to the British pub
llo has unquestionably stimulated recruit
ing. There la no Indication that the allies In
the west Intend to assume the aggressive.
On the other Band the Indication are
that If Oermana capture Paris every ef
fort will be made to render a barren tri
umph by leading the Oermana from posi
tion to position )n a aerie of rear guard
action until the Invaders are exhausted.
The first official communication from
th new capital of Franc at Bordeau in
dlrates the failure of a Oerman flanking
movement, vlden CI intended te cut the
left wing of th alllea.

The standard' Pari Correspondent In a
telegram today, say that tho losses of
the French northern army, which ha
been operating in Belgium and between
Paris and the Franco-Belgian frontier, are
estimated at about 100,000 killed, wounded
and missing. It ia assumed that the ma
jority of the missing ar dead, and the
total number ot dead la said to exceed
SO.000. . .
The Oerman losses cannot be estimated
with the same probability of accuracy,
but It I thought that the German force
opposing this part of the French army
must hav lost fully 150.000 men, of whom
25.0(0 and S0.000 ar estimated to hav
been killed. ,
