LONDON. Bept. 29. (3:18 p. m.) The of
ficial press bureau today gave out a
statement, ' which says:
"The following descriptive account,
which has been communicated by an eye
witness at present with the general head
quarters, continues and supplements the
narrative published yesterday of the
movement of the Brltlfh force and of
t Vi t Vmnrh nrmUi In fmmpillnt tnlleh
with it. !
"Wednesday, September 23, was a per
fect autumn day. It passed without in
cident as regards major operations. Al
though the enemy concentrated its heavy
artillery on the plateau near Passy, noth
ing more than Inconvenience was caused.
"The welcome absence of wind gave our
airmen a chance, where they took full
advantage by gathering much Informa
tion. Unfortunately one of our aviators
who had been particularly active in an
noying the enemy by dropping bombs,
was wounded in the air. Being alone on
a single seated monoplaue, he was not
able to use hta rifle, and while circling
above a German two-seated machine In
an endeavor to get within pistol shot, lie
was hit by the observer of the German
machine, who was armed with a rifle.
He managed te fly back over our lines
and by great good luck he descended to
a motor ambulance, which at once con
veyed him to a hospital.
Bomb Dropped Among: Horses.
"Against this may be set off the fact
that another of our flyers exploded a
bomb arnong some artillery horses, killing
several and stampeding others.
"On Thursday, September 24, the fine
weather continued, as did the lull in the
action, the heavy German shells falling
mostly near Targnan, twelve miles south
east of Laon.
"On both Wednesday anoTThursday the
weather was eo fine that many flights
were made by the aviators French, Brit
ish and German. These produce a corre
siionding activity among the anti-air
craft guns. So still and clear was the air
towards evening on Wednesday and dur
ing the whole of Thursday thyt to those
not especially on the lookout, the presence
of aeroplanes high up above them was
first made known by th bursting of the
projectiles aimed at them. The puffs of
smoke from the detonation shell hung in
the air for minutes like balls of fleecy
cotton or wool before they slowly ex
panded and were dissipated.
"From the placea mentioned as being
the chief targets for .the enemy's heavy
how User, it will be seen that ths Ger
mans are now Inclined U concentrate
their fire systematically onNjeflnite areas
in which their aviators think they have
located our guns or on villages where It
is Imagined our troops may be billeted.
The result will be to give work to local
Battle Hearsnblea Hlege.
"The growing resemblance of this bat
tle to siege warfare already has been
pointed out. The fact that the later
actions of the Russo-Japanaae war as
sumed a similar character was thought
by many to have been due to exceptional
causes, such as the narrowness of the
theater, operi.tlons between the Chi
nese ffuntler on the west and the moun
tainous country of northern Korea on

LONDON, Sept '29. In his review of
the situation of the battle In northern
France the Paris correspondent of the
"The German center still holds strongly.
In fact It seems clear, as pointed out by
Colonel Rousset, the military critic of
the IJberte, that the Germans have re
ceived orders to break through the French
line anywhere and at any coat. Tho
Russian ateam roller has come too close
to be any longer disregarded and it is
felt by the Germao general staff that a
decisive success must be won against the
allies In the western theater of war in
order that Germany may be able to turn
Its attention, with soma assurances, to
the victorious advance of the Russians.
Ilealataare la Kwrlona.
"The enemy continues to fight with
great fury at certain points of the line,
though the action Is generally less in
tense along the Immense battle front. A
narrow strip of territory, which they
succeeded in gaining as the result of
violent attacks, was Immediately rewon
by the allies, who captured cannon, pris
oners and flags.
"The French left continues to make
progress. On the other hand the Germans
have attained lio appreciable advantage
from their success on the heights of the
Meuae. The breach they made la too
narrow to permit of the paesage of the
Meuae by forces In sufficient numbers.
"Nothing decisive hss yet occurred, bgt
the scanty newa available ia certainly to
the advantage of the allies rather than to
th enemy. The furioua battle of the
Alsne is a soldiers' battle in the sense
that if ground Is won the final victory
must be attained by the courage and
tenacity of the Infantry. On no point
along the gigantic line has the Anglo
Fren;h Wall been pierced."

NEW YORK, 8ept. 29. Three collisions
of subway and surfaca cars sent eighteen
persons, more than half of them' women,
to hospitals today. Two of the injured
were said to be mortally hurt.
Four persons were Injured in a crash
between subway trains at One Hundred

The subway was blocked snd tens of
thousands of persons were delayed on
their Way to work.

and passengers and not held by Its brake.
then shot down the Incline of tho bridge
and crushed another trolley car at the
end of the bridge.
ICight more persons were later taken
to hospital as the result of thla accident.
The traffic congestion that followed
the collision In tho subway was the worst
in the history of the city. At several
stations more than 6,0K persons crowded
on the platforms snd thnee nearest the
rails were forced entirely off snd. In
some cases, walked along the tracks be
tween stations In nerll-jus proximity to
the deadly third rail. Surface cars were
crowded till passengers sat In tho win
dows. Milk wagons, trucks and delivery
carts of all descriptions were hired by
the thousands waiting to get down town,
and a y-ily stream of these vehicles,
laden to overflowing with men and
women, rolled south through the chief
thoroughfares during the early af lei noon.
Fire Adda to Difficulty.
VAddlng to the difficulties of the situa
tion was the stubborn fire that blazed
up when the trains crashed. For ten
blocks along I-enox avenue every man
hole belched billows of black smoke.
Firemen tried to fight the blase by plac
ing their hose through these thirty-Inch
openings, but made little headway. The
underground fire raged fiercely fur more
than two hours.
