Even Berlin seems to have lost

anxious eyes in the direction of the
ally in Calicia. During the first few
weeks of the war Austria and Ger

LONDON," 8ept 9. It Inspiration means
to the French soldier what It did In the
time of .the first Napoleon, -.the; situation
today on the allies' center on the historic
field of Chalons, ' should offer compensa
tion for a disheartened - month of ..rear
guard actions. '
At any rate, the allies, now superior
or equal ' numbers to the Germans, evi
dently have begun the offensive. At least
3,000,0u0 men are- engaged on both sides,
and as the center of the alliea lies on the
plains of Chalons, true to many, pro
phesies, another Armageddon may take
place where Attllla,' surnamed the
"Scourgo of Goyd" was defoated by the
allied Visigoths and Romans in the
bloodiest .battle In the .'world's history.
On these plains, centuries later, Napoleon
conducted the most brilliant , defensive
campaign of Ms carenr. .The French
soldiers will not be altowrd to forget
also that on this field a French army
fought a victorious action after Its com
mander had surrendered his sword. '
Logically, a great and decisive battle
ought to be under way from Tarts to
Verdun, but the veil of secrecy and the
ninagerness of the official communica
tions preclude possible predictions of the
! nature of the engagement proceeding In
jthe western war theater.

LONDON, Sept. . The correspondent
of the Central News at Petrograd wires:
"The. Slavonic natives of Austria ar
riving here as prisoners of war declare
they . were placed In front of the battle
line purposely by the Austrians. -
"It- is. proposed to lodge the wounded
AuMrlans and Germans in the empty

India Plans to Aid
SIMLA, India, Sept. .--vta London.)
The viceroy of India, In council, has out
lined proposals for the consideration of
the Indian people, by which the govern
ment of India proposes to negotiate re
ciprocal arrangements with other British
colonies to meet the present difficulties
regarding the emigration of Indians.
Vader this plan a limited number of
passports will be Issued. It Is similar to
the ' present arrangements between
Canada and Japan, which permits 1 of
temporary arrangements fur the move
ments of students and tourists, but wtilch
limits strictly the. right to settle ler
manently. The viceroy announce also that India
was contributing 1S.Wj0.uh toward the rout
of the Indian contingent In the war; this
in addition to applying the gift of the
Maharaia of Mysore of fl.eos.OOO Uo the
cost of transportation.

I.O.NDON, Sept.. . The correspondent
of the Times at Prtrograd sends the fol
lowing: The extent of the losses during the
first six weeks of the war places all
previous casualties far In the background.
Not less than 10,0(O dead Germans were
counted in the trenches after one en
gagement In eastern Prussia.
The fateful September 1. when two
Russian corps came to death north of

between DO.Oiio and 70,U0O, the majority
being Germs ns.
"The results of the war at Nijnl Nov
gorod provide conclusive evidence of the
comparatively small effect the war had
on Internal trade. Business was sus
pended for only two or three days at the
beginning of mobilization, but afterwards
it was normal. There was a brisk de
mand for g'lOfls from Asia, Persia, the
Caucasus ami the Volga legions. A ma
