WASHINGTON, Nov. lT.-Efforta by
the United States to bring peace to Eu-
rope still are awaiting a time when ono
or more of the big belligerent Indicates
a willingness to accept mediation.
This became known authoritatively to
day from persons who have lately dis
cussed the European situation with Pres
ident Wilson. Tha president's position Is
that the United BtaLe having already,
In a formal aa well as Informal way,
shown Us readiness to act as an In-'
termedlaiy, should now await tha tnltla
ttve of the belligerents. He feel that
the American government by pressing
for peace might gat In a position where
Ita ultimate Influence to that end would
Dealre Concerted 4,ctton.
There has been much discussion among
neutral countries, such aa. Holland and
Spain, of tha desirability of concerted
aotion. While tba United Statra would
not hesitate to Jon In such a movement.
If any of tho belligerent countries
showed a desire to accept tha media

of one. the American government will

Initiative toward joint action with other
American ambassadors and ' ministers

PARIS, Nov. 17 The Uermans, In the
nplnion of officers at front, are beginning
to shows aigrwi of the terrific strain they
have undergone for a month In Flanders
and these offlrers expect that Oeneral
Joffre'e plan of holding the line and per
mitting the Orrmans to wear themselves
out In vain but costly assaults will soon
A ataff officer, writing from, the battle
line, even goes so far as to predict that
within another month the alllea will be
I In a position to drive the enemy from
French soil. The writer, however, admits
that he la by nature an optimist.

Rom details ot trie taking of Dlxmude,
which the Germans still hold, but which
thus far has brought them no advantage,
have reached here. The cspture of the
town. It appears, waa due to a mistake
on the part of the French detachment.
When the fighting started the Belgians
wer entrenched north of the city, pro
tecting the Keyen road. To their right j
turned toward the west In the direction .
of Essen were the Scnegalea riflemen. I
To the south the French bluejackets or-
cupled the most exposed position on the i
Slerken road. I
Tha enemy opened a terrific bombard- I
ment at 5 a. m. on Tuesday last, during
which tho admiral, who waa In command
of tho aallors and who waa making a
reconnaissance. Just missed be.ng lilt by J

The men waited patiently In the ;

Ing slackened and three dens column
of German Infantry opened fire on th
trenchea. Ono column threatened to ,
turn the Belgian, who, overpowered by ,
numbers, retired on tha outskirts of the
city. They were followed by th Sen-1
galeae, who thought that an order for a
general retreat had been given. This
movement uncovered the bluejackets who, j
however, continued to hold their ground, j
W nil part of th enemy advanced on '
Dixmude by th Esaen and Keyen roads '

th Trusslan guard they wer In danger I
of being surrounded. Undaunted, how
ever, they dashed with the bayonet upon
the Germans, but were overwhelmed by
numbers and beaten back to th trenches.
Asked to surrender, they replied In the
words credited to General Cambronne at
Waterloo, when In similar circumstance
he aald: "Th guard dies, but never surrenders."
Alllea Abandon City.
For several hour they held off th
Germans, who wer four tlmea a, nu

they came too near. -
Towards evening they were obliged to
retire, alnce their only mean of -re
treat, th bridge connecting th city
with tho country waa about destroyed.
They crossed the bridge under an aval

heroism that the Prussian officers after
