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.

"A spontaneous rising of the people has teen recognized at the request of the smaller states at The Hague conference as being within the law of nations as Jar as weapons are carried openly and the laws of civilized warfare are being observed; but such rising was only ad mitted In order to fight tho attacking enemy.

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 gainst us. "The. entire responsibility for thesa i events rests with the Belgian govern ' tnent, who with cr'mlnal frivolity, have given to the Belgian people Instructions eontraray to the law of nations and in 1 cited their res'etunrc, and who, In spite of our repeated warnings, "even after the fall of Luttlch ll.iegei have done nothing .to induce .them to a peaceful attitude."

Forcing the Germans out of their strong defensive position Is a question, of time and endurance. The French and British havs the advan tage of position from the point of view of getting up reinforcements by rail. Still it is difficult to say whether the Hermans are fighting a stubborn rear-guard action or if It Is Intended to hold the present lines. The region north of the German lines is a region of vasue skirmishing The Germans are occupying the towns and villages near the front with small patrols or armored cars, but on the whole they are contracting their web.

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.

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 guard. 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."
