PARIS. Nov. $. The correspondent of
the Excelsior at Havre aaya he hu from
a aourre which he cannot designate, news
of the death of General Von Kluck, ten
days ago In a hospital at Namur, where
ha ws treated for a wound In the head.
The news of the alleged death, the cor
respondent says, has been carefully con
cealed In Belgium and Germany.
General Von Klqck, who led the dash
of tha German right wing, which got to
within a few miles of Paris In the first
month of the fighting, has been reported
wlth'n the Isst few days In official com
munications as directing- his army In the
fight on the Alsne river. When the
scene of fighting shifted to Belgium and
the German light wing was extended Into
that territory.- General Von Kluck, fol
lowing his skillful retreat from the vicin
ity of Parisremained in the position ha
had taken on the Alsne. The fighting

had concentrated on the Good Hope.' The
firing continued for several minutes with
out damage. The German ahota fell short
an the Good Hope had such a roll that
showed It could not reply. The smaller
cruisers were far out of range.
Draw la Nearer.
' Slowly the sea fighters drew in nearer
and when the two units were but (.000
yards apart the Good Hope fired its two
nine-Inch guns. It was still unable to use
Its eight alx-Jnch guns, which' on the
gundeck were so near the waterllne that
' as the vessel rolled they were almost
awaab. A terrible broadside from the
Scharnhorat and Gneisenau crippled the
British flagship and Its engines stopped.
The Monmouth, recognizing the distress
of Its companion, made a dash to cover
the .Good Hope, but by that time the
distance separating the two squadrons
had been reduced to 5,000 yards and the
Germans were able to bring all their
Fhtps into action and to use the guns of
the five vessels.
These were directed first, against the
.Monmouth, Glasgow and Ontario. The

to the owners.
The National live stock exhibition, the
largest live stock show in the world, was
to have been held In Chicago beginning;
November 38, but probably will be called

No Danger of Meat Faaalae.
Danger of - a meat famine resulting
from the closing tomorrow of the Union
stock yards is remote, officiate of lead
ing packing companies announced today.
Prices will not be perceptibly affected,
they said, and even if they are raised
the advance will be so small that deajers
and butchers will not take advantage of
them. Storage houses are well supplied
with meat, it was announced, and many
of the Chicago packing companies are
operating plants in other cities, where
there haa been no Infection of cattle by
foot and mouth disease, the- tnaiady which
caused federal and state officials to or
der the Chicago yards closed.

Order - Effective Friday.
Orders closing the Chicago yards will
go into effect at the close of business to
morrow and continue until the opening of
business on the second Monday thereafter,
or November 16. Business will be sus
pended, therefore, for nine days. The Im
mediate effect will be to stop the dally
shipment of almost WO.ffjO cattle sheep and
hogs to the Chicago market. The order
will halt a dally business, outside of the
meat packing industry, of 1,S00,600 and
affect 35,000 employes. A portion of them
will be idle during the suspension.
' The closing of the yards was ordered
yesterday following the finding of six
Infected steers among a herd of 600 feeders
and eleven Infected Holsteln cows which
were exhibited at the recent national
dairy show. In nine days, government
experts predict, the yards will be free of
contagion. The process of elimination will
include the destruction of Infected cattle,
the disinfection of cattle pens . and car
and the. .killing of. rats. . .
Receipts of cattle; hogs and-sheep were
53,000 head, or 13,000 less than those on
Thursday a week ago. The decrease was
mostly In hogs, prices of which advanced
26 to 60 cents, and In sheep, which rose
10 cents over yesterday's close. Cattle
sold 10 to 20 cents higher than they did
Beginning Saturday, the first business
day on which the yards will be closed,

PETROGRAD. Nov. R.-(Vla London.)
The new position of the Gorman front
along the river Warthe, over seventy-five
miles west of the Vistula river,
which they reached at the time of tho
attempted attack on Warsaw, Indicates
the tremendous retreat of General Von
Himlenherg'a entire army In Poland dur
ing the last two weeks. This retreat
regarded as especially Important since
suih noted Industrial centers as 1.041,
Plotrkow, Random and Kirlre are recap,
tured by the Russians. The strategic
point at Bandoiplr which is at the Junc
tion of the Man and Vistula rivers, has
also been retaken.
There is paitlcular elation over Rus
sia's advance since there now seems
little poKslhlllty of the Germsns regaining
the lost' territory because of any Improve
ment In the roads, the condition of which
was regarded as a largo fartor of the
Germs n failure. The Improvement of
the roads Is more thsn counterbalanced
by the enormous Russian reinforcements
since received. While the .population of
the dintrlct a month aco were vacillating
In their sympathies, all are not enthus

On the East Prussian frontier the Ger
mans have met with no success In a

the Russians have even crossed Into
German territory. In this region, how
ever, the German retreat was not marttedj
by serious losses. Some of the military i
experts here explain that the passing of
tlm Germans from the offensive to the
defensive la due to the reported with
drawal of seven army corps front Poland
to the western theater of war.
While the retreat of the Austrian
