LONDON, Sept. 18. Another
great battle, even more vital for the
countries concerned than those which
have preceded it, is now in progress
on a line extending from the region
of Noyon on the river Olse, north
west of Paris, to the river Metis?,
north of Verdun.
The front is some hat shorter
than was the case in the battle of
the Marne, but this will result only
in a more fiercely contested battle,
with masses of troops throwing
themxelves at each other, and every
available piece of artillery concen
trated In the determined effort of
the armies to treak through the
lines. About 3,000,000 men are en

The Germans, who, a fortnight
ago, had made their first swift en

France and Great Hrltatn and cap

selves on the mountains north of the
River Aisne, through the plains of
Champagne and in the Argonne
mountains, through which the Meuse
They are in stronger positions
than they were for the battle of the
Marne and have been strongly rein
forced with fresh troops from the
north and east. They have at
tempted some counter attacks against
the allied troops, which flushed wit.t
victory, have been trying to prevent
them from entrenching themselves.

According to Engllfln and French
official reports these attacks have
been repulsed and the Germans com
pelled to give way at certain points
but the German general staff claims
just the opposite result. .
It Is certain, however, that the t Illy
country north of the Alsne offers good
ground (or such tactics. It would appear
that these western wings of the two
armies, the German right and the allies'
left, are aain to bear a heavy par: In

Von Kluck and General Von Buelow de

army, should retreat be decided upn or
forced upon them.
Besides holding the front they have to
be prepared to withstand another attempt
on the. part of the allies to outflank
( them. '
Railways Rehlnd Them.
These German forces hold a nositlon
from a point near Noyon on the Olse
along the district north of the Alsne to
the Junction of the latter river with the
Sulppes. Behind them are splendid lines
of railways running in all directions
which facilitate the movement of troops
from St. Quentln Guise and Mesleres. In
this respect, therefore, they are well
The allies, on the other hand, can, and
it is believed they are, bringing In new
troops through Rouen and Amiens to
threaten the German flank. In fact,
marly the whole of northwest France is
now open to the allies, the Germans hav
ing withdrawn most of their scattered
troops eastward toward the Oise.
