PARIS. Nov. S. The correspondent of
the Excelsior at Havre says he has from
a source which he cannot designate, news
of the death of General Von Kluck. ten
days ago In a hospital at Namur. where
ha rvs treated for a wound In ths head.
The news of the alleged death, the cor
respondent says, has been carefully con
feled In Belgium and Germany.
General Von Kluck, who led the dash
of tha German right wing, which got to
wl'hln a few miles of Paris In the first
month of the fighting, has been reported
wlth'n the lest few days In official com
munications as directing his army In ths
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 Paris, remained In the position ha
had taken on the Alsne. The fighting

the operations In Belgium, and General
Von Kluck and his army, according to
reports, have been given a much needed

had concentrated on the Good Hope.' The
firing continued for several minutes with
out damage. The German shots fell short
and- ths Good Hope had such a roll that
hawed It could not reply. The smaller
cruisers were far out of range.

' Slowly the sea fighters drew In nearer
and when the two units were but 8,000
yards apart the Good Hope fired Its two

Its eight alx-Jnch guns, which' on the
gundeck were so near the waterllne that
' as the vessel rolled they were almost
awash. A terrible broadside from the
Scharnhoret 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 6.000 yards and the
Germans were able to bring all their
rhtps into action and to use the guns of
the five vessels.
These were directed first, against the
Monmouth, Glasgow and Ontario. The
Ontario, badly, damaged, escaped in the
adhering darkness and soon afterward

and swine, notice Is hereby given that
the Union stock yards at Chicago will
be closed to the receipt of cattle, sheep
and other ruminants and swlns from No
vember 7 to November 15, inclusive."
Dairy show exhibitors of fancy stock
todsy organised to protect their Interest.
They said the pedigree value of their herd
Is $2,600,000. The state, it is said, will pay
them only the actual meat value of slain
animals, thereby entailing a heavy loss
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 28, but probably will be called
off this year.
No Danger of Meat Fasalne.
Danger of a meat famine resulting
from the closing tomorrow of the Union
stock yards is remote, officials 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 dealers
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 has been no Infection of cattle by
foot and mouth disease, the anaiady which
caused federal and state officials to or
der the Chicago yards closed.
"There have been Ho cases of the dis
ease reported In the west," A. G. Leon

and Transit company, said, "and the west

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 daily
shipment of almost 100,000 cattle sheep and
hogs to the Chicago market. The order
will bait a dally business, outside of the
meat packing industry, of $1,300,600 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 000 feeders
and eleven infected Holstein 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

Receipts of cattle; hogs and' sheep were
63,000 head, or 13,000 less than those on
Thursday a week ago. The decrease was
mostly In bogs, prices of which advanced
36 to 0 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,
there will be no market quotations until
the embargo is lifted.
New York Herds Affected.

of Agriculture to .have been discovered
at Clyde. N. T., making, with Buffalo
and Seneca Falls, three centers of the
disease In New York state. Six mora
communities, were reported affected In
Lancaster county, Pennsylvania.
The seriousness of the epidemic and, the
necessity for use by the Department of
Agriculture of funds set aside for other
purposes waa laid before President Wil
son today by Secretary Houston.
The secretary told the president that as
a result of the epldemlo It will be neces
sary to Increase the estimates of ex
penditures for the department now being
drawn up and which will be sent to con
gress next month. He said the depart
ment believed it was In control of the
situation, and that the food supply would
not be very seriously affected.

,of Knglish observers thst the forward

general. Kven the Russian left wing
which has been held stubbornly by the

vately worded report given out In Vienna,
which declares that the Aostrlans having
maintained their position on the Lyaa

line, are now retiring. At the same time
Austria sets forth certain minor suc
cesses along the line from the riven San
Petrograd, however, makes positive as
sertion t'.at the Austrian movement is a
retreat amounting to a rout, in which
the Russians have taken many prisoners
and much booty. According to reports
In the Russian capital. General von Hln
denberg. the German commander t. con.
tlnuing his retiring movement In Russ-
sian i-aiona, wnue desperate fighting
along the frontier of East Prim.! h.
enabled the Russlsns to cron the border
ai several points. A significant phase of
the eastern campaign Is Indicated by n
report froin'Rottendam that the Ninth
German army corps has been transferred
from Belgium tc East Prussia.

hardest fighting Of the mar nlreariv haa
taken place, bnt where It is expected the
Germans are yet to deliver tho full fury
of their assault In the effort to c.iln the
French coast, and Sclssons. where lh
Germans have gained from the French
some positions cartured by the British
when they first crossed the river Asn.
Along this line a tremendous attack prob
ably already la under way. Tho outcome
may be of the greatest Importance.
The Turkish ambassador left London
today and Great Britain gave formal an
nouncement of a state of wsr between the
empire and Turkey. These events coupled
with the actnon of British cruisers In
bombarding Turkish ports, constitute
the extent of the known activities this
morning In the Turkish situation.
(Icrmaaa Retreat Maay Miles.
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 the
attempted attack on Warsaw, Indicates
the tremendous retreat of General Von
Hindenherg'a entire army In Poland dur
ing the last two weeks. This retreat Is
regarded as especially Important since
suih noted Industrial centers as l.oda,
Ptotrkow, Random and Klelce are recap
tured by the Russians. The strategic
point at Sandomlr which Is at the Junc
tion of the San and Vistula rivers, hss
also been retaken.
There Is paitlcular elation over Rus
sians advance slnre there now seems
little possibility of the Germans regaining
the lost' territory because of any Improve
ment In the roads, the condition of which
mas regarded as a largo factor of the
Oermnn failure. The Improvement of
the roads Is more than counterbalanced
by the enormous Russian reinforcements
since received. While the .population of
the district a month Biro were vacillating
In their sympathies, all are not enthus
lastieally with the victor.
On the East Prussian frontier the Ger
mans have nut with no success In ss
sumlng the nKgresslve nnd st some points
the RiiMslans have even crossed Into
German territory. In this region, how-'
tver. the German retreat was not marked!
hy serious losses. Some of the military 1
experts here explain that the passing of
the Germans from the offensive to the
defensive Is due Jo the reported with
drawal of seven army corps from Poland
to the western theater of war.
While the retreat of the Aiit.lrl.ns
operating in South Poland and GalMa
Is not so marked as that of the Germans,
the official reports here Indicate that
they have moved perceptahly backwards.
The suspended siege of Prtemysl, which
Is much acclaimed hy the Austrlans, is
explained by the Russlsns as due to
the fear of exposing their srmy to the
cholera epidemic prevalent there.
