LONDON, ' OcL 7.-The.epnfllct along
the rivers of nf thern France, although
now in" its twenty-sixth day, shows
fewer signs of an early, end than it did
two days ago. Then General von Kluck
appeared dangerously threatened by the
enveloping movement of the allied armies.
Today that resourceful German com
mander, having obtained from an un
known quarter heavy reinforcements, ap
parently is engaged in his turn lr at
tempting to outflank the French and
TIiIk counter stroke Is viewed here as
the supreme, feature In the situation in
the western theater of the war. .and Its
full slKniricance can be gauged only by
the actors who alons are privileged to
witness the drama In which they are en
gaged. Hlmultaneously with his newly launched
turning movement General von Kluck
has been trying to cut through the tenter
of the allies' extended left at Laasigny.
The official French communication ays
flat this attempt was foiled, but it is
not doubted that the effort will be re
newed, and in the event of success it
would compel the left wing of the Frencn
army to retire toward the roast In order
to escape the German lines stretching
out simultaneously from the north and
east. The fighting In .this, neighborhood,
described in the ' French official report
aa "more and more violent," must. It Is
believed, reach to Antwerp and. and
largely Influence the fate of that fortress.
The surest way of raising the sige of
the temporary Belgian capital. It Is sail,
oould be' the success of the French turn
ing movement on the Glee.
Neither the German nor French com
mander has claimed any decision In this
unprecedented atruggle. Indeed, the Ger
