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 turned. 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 to hand struggles have taken place on ; the ton of the Crnsinna nlan .v.- .u. i of which rises) like a cliff against the allies. "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 Progressing slowly on the enemy's right, pushing up a way In ,the center, between Rhelms and Argonne. 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 comes more clear, the plan of the staff more oennite and the da of Its realisa tion more Imminent."
