An official .communication tsaued by the
general staff today says:
"On September 21 the Russian troops
took by storm the fortifications of Jsres

They took twenty-two cannon. The en
emy offered hard resistance and blew up
IhSibrtdge over the Kan. ,T days pre
viously the Russians had. occupied Star

north and west of Jeroelau).
"The Russian cavalry Is pursuing the
retreating Austrian rear guard and in

trlana destroyed many brldgoa. . ,
"Every day the number of prisoners apd

The mar euver constitutes a grave men
ace to the aHI", who are resisting despe
rately and nave thus far repulsed attacks ,
with heavy losses.
tattle End Heon
; That the Oermans are losr.jg heavily
on their right hi alio attested by the
constant arrival here1 of prisoners and
wounded. This morning many automo
biles were seen with wounded, both Get
man and allies, passing through the
streets, but some of, those were conval
escents returning from the seashore and
rejoining their corps.
The steady progress of the allies' left
fortifies the confidence here. J This
morning's press- is unanimous that the
battle of Alane cannot last much longer,
for the steady retirement of the German
right must entail a weakening of the
center elbow that the Germans threw
out- along the river Olse to prevent being
Flghtlne- at Woevre.
IX)NDON. f Sept. 24. interest In the
fighting today centers In Woevre, says
the Bordeaux correspondent of the Times,
where the enemy Is making a serious
effort to pierce the line of' forts Unking
Verdun and toul.
"To the northeast of Verdun." the cor
respondent continues, , "east of the Meuac
heights and in the dlrectloh of Moully
and Damplerre, . their furious attempts
have failed. In the south' of Woevre
they hold line positions running through
Ralchecourt, Selchoprey and Uronvllle.
The general situation remains un
changed. "On the left and center, the allies have
the best of reasons' for confidence in the
result of the battle. Let there be no
mistake, the enemy Is going to give
serious trouble along the Una where,
with striking ' recuperative power, U
managed to gather their routed hosts,
fleeing from the battle of the Marne.
Kind Fortified Positions.
"A week has elapsed since It first be
came clear that, althouch. forced to
abandon successive positions prepared
for defense, the enemy had found to Xhm
north of the Alsnc, north-northwest of
Rhelms, formidable fortified positions on
which they might hope . to maintain
tnemseives for many days while their j
own troops were recovering from the !
retreat and while the fire of victory i
among the allies was burning out. I
'The positions, enormously- strong by 1
nature and dominating, the valleys and :
the towns, have been turned Into regular !
fortresses. The line of trenches, built '
with science and, the. solidity of perma-
rtent works, are covered by flanking I
trenches bristling with mitrailleuses and '
reinforced by main of barbed wire and '
block houses, whose quick flrers and
mitrailleuse sweep the whole front. To 1
the rear of these works the heavy artii-.i
lory is placed in position, and from Its ;
fire such places as Bolssona and Rhelms
have suffered great damage. , , , f
frown Prince la Danger. j
: "Most of the work on this line was !
finished wkile the battle of the Marne t
was atlll In progress. The allies did (hetr 1
best to' prevent Its completion and there '
has been some desperate fighting along j
the Atsne. Gallant rushes have beenJ
made toward the trenches and fierce hand 1

"Attack and counter attack succeeded
one another while the endangered crown
prince's army has. been picking a way
out of a difficult country. Into a still
more awkward position. On our right
the enemy's army has been seeking for
an opening or a weak link In the chain
of forts between Toul and Verdun.
"The allies for their part have been

Troops R naked to the Front.
"Still the actual battle of the Aisne haa
not yet begun. There haa already been
enough fighting to constitute half a dosen
Dames, out only the preliminary aLa
of the big struggle have been reached.
The railways on both sides are massing-
troops along the front, the Germans com-
mg front Lorraine, .the British from the
wnoie empire and the French from the
south and west.
"Meanwhile the. siege operations con
tinue. The deceptive lull which preceded
the battle of Mao Yang has fallen on
the field. The situation remains
changed In spite of the furious cannoned-
mg ana the desperate fighting, but with
each fresh engagement the situation be

more oennite and the da of Its realisa
