Madame Vandervelde made the follow
"Madame Vandervelde, wife of the Bel
gian minister of state. Iimh come to the
I'nited States from Antwerp to appeal ti
the ReneroKlty of the groat democracy on
behalf of her countrymen men and
women whose land has been ravished
by the horrors of war through no fault
of their own. and thousands of whom are
now crutute. Thousands have lost all
they had. land, houses, farms, money and
the ny tools with which they got their
daily bread. Thousands are even without
ilotliing and have become wanderer! and
outcasts at the gates of the earth.
"Madame Vandervelde wishes to tell
the American people what she. has seen
herself In the- stream of refugees le&v.
int' Mallnea; tlte bombardment, the mur
derous raids of the Zeppelins, and the
Etoiy of the burning of Louvain. She
wished to tell them also of the sublime
courage of the Belgian people.
"A few hours before she left Antwerp,
King Albert of Belgium sent his secre
tary lo Madame Vandervelde to wish her
good luck and to tell her that the king
approved her intention of appealing for
help for the Belgian refugees to the peo
ple of America. She brings with her also
a letter from Queen Elizabeth, in which
the queen approves, of her mission.
"Madame Vandervelde Implores tho
American people to help Belgium to re
patriate all these poor people to start them j
again In life in new homes. Their suffer
ings are unutterably terrible and hundreds
of the breadwinners, fathers, husbands j
and sons, have been killed in the war.
"Is It not right and fitting that those
who can help should do so at this mo- I
ment? Madame Vandervelde Is con- I
vinced tlist her cry for help will he heard,
that It is not In vain that she Is appealing

ALONG A BATTLE
(Continued from Page One )
company state that the battle con
tinues with great fierceness along;
the whole front.
The death is announced of General
Batallle, who was killed in action.
LONDON. Sept. IS As has been the case
heretofore when the struggle sdong the
xast battle line in Frame nan been most
acute, the public In Germany, as well as
in France and Kngland, has been forced
to content Itself with the most meager
news of the progress of military opera
tions. Experience has shown that ex
tended statements are Issued only after
the retirement or the temporary defeat
of one army or the other. The Infor
mation thla morning sets forth laconically
that the battle Is raging with great fierce
ness along the whole front, which ex
tends, roughly speaking, from the River
f'lse. near Noyon. to the German fortress
of Meti; but. barring a slight retirement
of the German right wing at certain
points, no decided advantage Is credited
to either side.
Presumably the efforts of the allies have
been divided Into three supreme strug
gles; first, to dislodge ehe Germans from
the heights of the Aisne; second, to break
through the fourth and fifth Oerman
armies at the center; thtrd. to outflank
the German right under General von
Kluck. The position of the fourth and
fifth German armies is considered not
strong as the remainder of the line, wlilta
if the flanUin' movement is syc essfoi.

a matter of speculation, the press of Ixm
don dwells tKlay on the possibility that
tho Germans are striving only to hold
the strong positions they now have as
sumed, with the view of keeping the alMea
at bay and thus affording Kmperor Wil
liam an opportunity to rush troops to his
On the other hand, it would be no sur
prise If the Germans, tmw reinforced,
should attempt another aggressive move,
ment similar to the one which the allies
Inaugurated so successfully after the in
vaders had exhausted themselves In tho
avalanche-like rush toward Paris.
The German losses are estimated here
at 3.2i0 dally for the last fortnight. This
totals more thsn 44,000 since September 4.
As the loxses of the allies are known to
have been tremendous and adding the ter
rible losses suffered by the Austrlans In
Oalicia, some idea may he gained of the
extraordinary sacrifices of men during
these flrrt few weeks of the modern
world's greatest war.
No confirmation haa been received here
of the reported Servian evacuation of
Semlln, nor have the brief dispatches
bringing this rumor told whether tho
Servian retirement was due to strategic
efforts or to the onslaughts of the Aus
trlans. aided by the gunboats, which are
reported to have bombarded both Semlin
and Belgrade. All Servian advices Insist
that the Serbs are continuing their vigor
ous forward movement.
British Resent Peace Talk.
Preliminary talk of peace eeems to be
resented by the Rrittsh public. While the
pact recently signed by the allies Insures
concerted action, when It comes. In the
direction of peace on their part, the dis
patches from Washington relative to the
attitude on peace of Dr. von Borthmann
Hollweg, the German chancellor, as con
veyed through the American ambassador
at Berlin, together with dispntches from
Home saying that Auetrla-Hungary de
sires peace, have aroused considerable
discussion here and editorial articles al
ready have appeured saying that peace
on any terms is out of the question until
what Is styled "the menace of German
militarism" l crushed.
"The earlier Impatience of the British
public for news from the front seems
now to be more or less reconciled to the
enforced necessity of awaiting the of
ficial bulletins fclven out by the press
bureau. Dispatches from Berlin say that
the German public has been without
actual news of the situation In the west
ern area of the war for two weeks.
No Change In Kast.
"There was nothing today to Indirate
a change In the situation in the eastern
sone. Presumably the armies of Austria
are still trying to unite at Cracow, while
the Russian army under General Iton
nenkampff is holding the Germans at biy
along the frontier of Poland."
While public opinion and the press In
Italy am) Uoumania are apparently still
In the dark as to the course these nations
will pursue as the struggle continues, 1
semi-official assurance came from Den
mark today from tho newspaper Politikn
that that country would remain firm In
its neutrality. The paper says;
"Nothing ran Induce uh to change the
IHilioy of neutrality which Denmark haj
declared she will follow."

PARIS. Sept. 18. The great battle of

on the left. Though this fact was given
