Few pictures axe being passed by the Ge rman censors these days. These are the first
to come from Berlin for almost a week. The upper photograph shows wounded German
soldiers in the military hospital at Berlin telling their comrades who have not yet been
to the front of the terrific fighting against the troops of the allies. Below is shown an in
terior view of the over-crowded military hospital.
NEW YORK, Sept. 19. Adolph
Ton Bruenlng, former secretary to the
Germany embassy at Washington,
who is now at Genoa, Italy, has sent
to a relative here the lollowing com
munication from Dr. Alfred Zimmer
man, GoriTian iintler-serretary of for
eign affairs, with the information
that the German government re
quested that it be given publicity:
"BERLIN. Aug. :;.. (Official
Communication of the Gorman Gen
eral Staff.) The city of Loewen
(Louvain) has surrendered and was
given over to us by the Belgian au
thorities. On Monday. August 2 4,

ti general rising of the population against
the enemy had bprn organized for a
Jens time; depots of arms were found,
where to eacli gun was ntt..rhcd the

"A spontaneous rising of the people has

smaller states at The Hague conference
as being within the law of nations as
Jar as weapons are carried openly and

Justifies Severe Methods.
"The barbarous attitude of the Bel
gian population in all parts occupied by
our troops has not only justified our
severest measures, but forced them on
sis for the sake of self preservation. The
Intensity of the resistance of the popula
tion la shown by the fact that In Laewen,
twenty-four hours were necessary to
lireakjdown their attack. We ourselves
regretl deeply that during these fights the
town Tif Loewen has been destroyed to
great extent. Needless to say that
these consequences are not intentional on
our part but cannot be avoided in this
Infamous Frunctlreur war being led
"The. entire responsibility for thesa
i events rests with the Belgian govern

given to the Belgian people Instructions

of our repeated warnings, "even after the
fall of Luttlch ll.iegei have done nothing
.to induce .them to a peaceful attitude."
Eebels Arrested and
Executed in China
PEKING, Sept. 20. The government has
Instituted severe measures designated as
martial law, in several provinces and
many Important cities. The discovery
that rebels in the capital were expected
to take advantage of tho government's
present financial and diplomatic diffi
culties, is causing scores of arrests and
many executions, according to Chinese re
ports. Postal communication with Teln Tau

FALSE STORY OF MOVEMENT

LONDON, Sept. 1!.-Siue the official
denial that any Russian troops hud.
passed through F.nglish territory for
France. isMied a few days ago by tlie
war office, efforts have Ix-en made to as
certain the cause of the persistent re
ports that a Russian army nas been
moved from Archangel to the Bi-ottish
coast and thence across the channel to
Points in Belgium and northern France.
According to a high government offl
cial these reports probably had their
source In the fact that a number of Kus
slan officers detailed for staff and ob
servation duty with the French and F.ng
lish army in the field, passed through
nKland accompanied by their orderlies
and servants, all in uniform. It la b
lieved that villagers in Scotland Caught
sight of thcae Russians In uniform strange
to the country folk and thus arose the
widespread report of a Kusslan troop
movement in this country.

ROTTERDAM, Sept. 7 (Correspondence
of The Associated rress.) Of the Ger
man uhlans, of whom so much had been
heard In the European war, Liuigl Barslnl,
a widely known Italian war correspond
ent, says in the Coniere Delia Sera:
"As we neared a small station and the
train lessened its speed, we saw a small
troop, of cavalry guarding the railroad
crossing a patrol of uhlans. Their de
meanor, was calm. Though they were In
the' enemy's country, their carefree atti
tude gave the Impression that they were
merely In a maneuver camp. y
"The swarms of cavalry which the Ger
mans send out ahead of their advance
re to be found everywhere on any high
way, on any path. It is their business to
see as much as possible. They show
themselves everywhere and they ride until
they are fired on, keeping thlB up until
they, have located the enemy.
Riding Into Death.
"Theirs Is the task of riding Into
death. The entire front of the enemy is
established by them and many of them
are killed that Is a certainty they face.
Now and then, however, one of them
manages to escape to bring the Informa
tion (which otherwise is obtained by offi
cers in their rear making observations).
The fire with which the uhlans are
greeted Is a fair estimate of the strength
of the enemy, for they know that usually
thn soldiers shoot us noon as the cavalry
of the enemy shows Itself.
"The German uhlan Is employed en
tirely for reconnaissance purposes and
what Is known as 'screen' and contact
work. In the first of these capacities he
endeavors to locate the enemy without
running Into his fire, doing this usually
In groups of from twenty to thirty, which
move wtth vanguard, flankers and raar
Work of Iblans.
"In 'screen' work the uhlan is used to
cover infantry or artillery advances, tak
ing a position on tho flank as soon as
this has been accomplished.
"In contact work tho ulilun rides in
small liodles until he has drawn the fire
of the enemy. Instead of retreating, aa
he may do In ordinary reconnaissance
work, he endeavors to trace the front of
the enemy, riding parallel to It-usuaJly
until the last man Is shot down. The
contact action has meanwhile been closely
observed from the German front and the
advance and attack of the ' Infantry la
governed by the Information gained at
the expense of the uhlan, for whom there
la no hope as soon as he Is detailed for this
duty, but who, from all accounts, does
not seem to mind this part of hj work."
