LONDON, Oct. 3. (fecial Cablegram
to New York World and Omaha Bee.)
Reports of enormous losses at the battle
of the Alsne are borne out by a letter
from a correspondent of the Westminster
Gaxette, who was permitted to visit the
battlefields. He writes:
"The whole district northeast of Pari
I one bl? henriacve. Everywhere in the
field, on the roadside, on the hill and
in the valley lie the dead. I aw dead
men standing or i leaning stiff, against
their fellow In the trenches. I had not
believed . tho atorles that had reached
Pari of this fact. '. But It i Impossible
to conceive a nightmare more hideous.
Many Die In Agony.
- "The one thought that persisted In my
mind wa of the great " number . who
must have died In the agony ' of wound
on the battlefield. . At a small' village not
a great distance from Cotterets,' we cam
upon a German surgeon assisted by a
French Red Cross nurse, operating In an
open yard'upon several German wounded.
.Most of - the case were - past - saving,
although all that wa humanely possible,
with the limited - meana available Wa
being done. Two British- officers near by
weer also being attended, but scant hop
was entertained of their recovery. .
V'One could, not help wishing that the
Red Cross societies-had permitted more
volunteers to go on the battlefield to t
tend to the wounded. . The French army
and the Red Cross have done all In their
No Relief Adeqaate.
"But the great "ravages of this udden
war have outrun the possibilities of an
'adequate organization of relief.

of battle, and It Is also the view of their
French confreres in Paris, that these

Best of Them All
The turning movement of the
allied armies lu northern France
haa brought the extreme of their
left wing within about thirty
miles of the Ilelgian frontier.
An official statement Isnued by
the French war office yesterday
say that part of the battle
line, stretching generally north
and south, haa been extended
north to a point south of Arras.
This line on which the allies are
attempting to envelope the Ger
man right wing, under General
von Kluck, has been pushed
gradually toward the Belgian
border as the Germans widened
their front In defense, until It ex
tends some fifty-five miles from
the angle that rests on Tracy-le-Mont,
Terrific fighting continues on
the allies' left wing, according to
Paris statement, the most severe
struggle being In the region of
Hoye, a town twenty-six miles
ent of Amiens and about mid
way on this battle 'line. Here the
Germans have concentrated
strong forces, probably with the
purpose of breaking through the
front of the allies and isolating
their forces to the north. The
Paris statement adds that the
Germans attempted to bridge the
Meuse near St. Mihlel, but their
pontoons were destroyed. French
claims of slight progress In the
Woevre district are recorded, as
are minor engagements at various
points on the front, extending
east and west.
In a statement received by wire
less from Berlin, the German
headquarters announced that the
great battle In France remains un
decided. The Germans with their
heavy artillery are hammering
the positions of the allies at many
points. The allies were repulsed
In their attempts to break the
German's lines. The German
statements say the heaviest losses
have been In the Argonne region.
A Petrograd correspondent says
that the Germans, from tour
points, are attempting to concent
trate on southern Russian Poland,
where a decisive battle Is ex
pected. Interest In the attitude of Bul
garia is revived by a dispatch
from Rome saying that all Bul
garian army officers In Italy and
Switzerland have been ordered
home at once.
The French minister of finance
declares that the financial situa
tion of France on October 1 was
entirely satisfactory. A dispatch
from Venice says that a Franco
British squadron has begun opera
tions against Pola, the chief naval
station of Austria-Hungary .

the only conclusion hinted at even
by 'the Berlin newspapers to be

It is evident that the progress of
the allies on their left Is considerable,

Germans might have pierced the line
of French fortresses on the MeuBe

The fierce battling around the
heights of Roye, to the northwest of
Noyon, seems to have ended in favor
of the French. The heights were cap

Wednesday, but on Friday, according
to a French report, the allies regained
control of the position.
