PARIS, Sept. 2a. According to
information reaching tho Krench
capital this morning, the Qer
niuns are continuing their des
perate resitstanco against the ad
vance of the allies in the north. This
athance was first on Roye, twenty
six miles to the east of Amiens, and
then on Peronne, twenty miles north
of Roye.
It was only hy a continuous rak
ing nrtillery fire and hard fighting
that the French und Ilrltish troops
were able to continue their advance
against the vigorous attacks of the
enemy. The left wing of the allies
now occupies positions between the
river and the river Somme,
which were traversed by the Oer
mann during their advance In tho di
rection of Paris.
From this fact is argued here by mili
tary observers the Germans will be
obliged to concentrate a great force in
order to protect their light wing, tho
out fin nking of which, 1'arla believes,
would mean n decisive vlotory for tho
In this fighting, which is in large meas
ure from improvised forts, tho allies have
advanced not only on the left, where
their mnceiiveis apparently were suc
cessful, but al;o at other points which
were strongly lortifled, such as Berry-Au-Buo,
in the direction of Craonne.
Judging from the reports coming to
Paris the GirmaiiM npiear to be sacri
ficing masses of men In tho hope of gain
ing a iUiek advantage.
Sc) strong aic sonic of tho positions on
both sides t ui t Bails believes a long and
st udv siege at some point Is not Im
probable, The allies appear to bo pre
pared for this, us well u for any other
cle velopmciHS
lie lie nil teflon on Left Wins;.
The following official communication
was given out in Paris tills afternoon:
"First On our left wing there has
begun a general action of great vio
lence between those detachment of our
forces that are operating between the
River Sornmc und the River Oise and the
army corps which Dm enemy has groiiied
In the region around Tergnler and St.
Cjucntln. These army corps have come,
some from the center of tho enemy's line
and others from ljrr.ilne and the Vosges.
These last named corps were transported
hv rail to camhral by way of LI ego and
Valenciennes. To the north of the river
Alsne. as far as Berry eu-Hae, there has
been no change of Importance.
"Second On the eentet we. have made
progress to the east of Rheims In the
direction of Berry and Moronv'lller.
Further to the east, n far an the Ar
gonne region, the situat'on shows no
change. To Ihe east of tho Argonne the
enemy has not Uen able to move out
of Varennes. On the right bank of the
Klver Meiise the enemy succeeded In get
ting on the footing of the heights of
the Meuse, in Hie legion of the promin
tory of H.ittnn Chatel, and, forced In the
d lection of St M'saiel, he bombarded
the forts of Parodies and of Camp Des
Remains. To offset this, to the south
of Verdun w remain masters of the
heights of the Menu- and our troops,
moving o it of Tool, advanced until they
reached the region nf Beaumont.
"Third On our right wing, 1-oriniuc
and the Vosi-'es. we huve repulsed at
tacks of minor importance on Nomeny.
To tile east of Lunovllle tho enemy bus
ni'ide some Mcnionst rations along the
lii.e:. of the River Vegouse and the River

War Summary
The thirteenth day of the great
battle of the Alsne, to the north
west nf Paris, finds the Kritnco
Hrliish nml (lertiuin armies still
lighting desperately, with the
Germans fiercely restating tho
gradual advance of the allies on
General von Kluck's flunk.
The French army is now en
trenched In n position between
tho Solium and Olso rivers, in a
position approximately sixty mllei
north of Paris.
On the eastern end of tho buttle
line in Frnnce the Germans are
reported to be making a de
termined nsault of Uie Verdun
positions. One report of the
righting there places tho German
casualties at 10,000 dead and
I 0,000 wounded.
The German army headquarters
in its lntest official statement re
garding the situation in France
confines Itself to stating that
there have beep some minor en
gagements, but that nothing of
importance has transpired.
The sharpening of tho censor
ship over news passing through
the hamU of Hritlsh authorities,
as announced InKt night would be
put Into effect, Is apparent to a
marked degree today. A consid
erable amount of unofficial re
ports, comment nnd special dis
patches from tho war zone is not
being transmitted from England.
In the eastern theater, the Rus
sian pursuit of the Austro-Ger-man
forces In Galicia continues.
A liiis-sliui official statement says
tin Galicjtin fortified positions of
Czyschky and Koulstyn, together
with all the Austrian artillery,
have been captured.
Following tho capture of Jaros
lau, the Russian flag hag moved
forward twelve miles to the. west
of that position and now flies
over the towns of Prr.eworsk and
Nancut. The Russians claim to
be steadily closing in on Cracow.
A Herlin official statement says
there Ih no news from the eastern
war arena.
Zeppelin airships have extended
their operations to .he Pelglum
seaside resort of Ostend. Three
bombs dropped from a dirigible,
caused consideranle damage to
buildings and created a panic
among the Inhabitants.
The Flerne government Is re
ported to have declined Ger
many's request for permission to
send its forces through Switzer
land. Italy, It is said, is prepared
to defend Switzerland's neutral
ity should Germany forcibly at
tempt to cross the frontier.
A French official announcement
states that tho Germans are again
bombarding the historic, cathedral
at Rheims.

LONDON, Bcpt. -..From Perronno
on tho west to Tjorraine on the
fast, nlong a battle lino that would take
a pedestrian a fortnight to cover, thero
came to London during the foronoon to
day nothing to Indicate that cither of the
vast armies whose millions, like molee,
ere conducting their operations virtually
under ground had yielded at any Im

It has been said that a new battle was
developing on the allies' left wins;, but
so far as London Is concerned this as
yet lacks official confirmation. Thero
were also reports that the Germans have
mode glgantlo preparations to renew the
siege of Verdun.
The heaviest slego artillery, according
to these reports, Is being trasported by
the Gcmmns from Metz, and they are
sacrificing thousands of lives In their
endeavors to place these monsters in
isisltlon. The plain to the east of Verdun

dead and lf'K wounded, the result of

Official statements hcur out othor re
ports that there has been a comparative
lull through the center of tho battle line
(portions of this dispatch have been
deleted by the British censor) -almost

tho cennor)-then the situation there
should come to a head, perhaps before
the termination of the present struggle
in France.
I Whip' dispatches from Vienna Insist
that the jMisltlons of the Austrian army
I are favorable, s concentrated in their
