London, Sept. 29. The allies can

mann-Hollweg told the Reichstag yes

his speech cabled to Reuters by
wav of Amsterdam.
the German prime minister made
' a similar statement in regard to the
"The English and French, it is
true," he said, "have achieved ad
vantages. Our first lines have been
pressed back some kilometers and we
have also to deplore losses in men
and material. That was inevitable in
an offensive on such a mighty scale.
But what our enemies hoped to ac
complish, namely, break through on
a grand scale and roll up our positions
lias not been attained. The battle
of the Somme will cost further sacri
fices. Still another trench and an
other village may be lost, but they
will not get through."
In regard to the eastern front
where, the chancellor said the Rus
sians had renewed their offensive with
heavy attacks, he predicted the same
result. "Here, too, the battle is pro
ceeding," he said, "but just as surely
shall we hold our own.'
