The German retreat In France has be
come virtually a general rout, the
rally of their armies In the region
of the Argonne being again repelled
The German Crown Princo Is still
stubornly resisting the allies. Tho
armies of Generals von Kluk nnd von
Buelow are retiring from the terri
tory where the fiercest fighting of
the war took place, abandoning the
strategic positions gained thtoug-h
great loss of life. The allies are on
tho offensive along the entire line.
Paris and London, long in gloom over
the successes of the Germans, today
rejoice In victory. "Unparalleled In
extent and Intensity," wires Joffre,
commander of the allies, to the peo
ple of France in describing the Ger
man defeat. City after city which

they fell before the Invaders have

Rheims, St. Die. P.aon and a score of
cities, where thousands of Germans
laid down their lives that the flag
might wave over the Hotel de VHles,
have ugnlti been taken by the French.
To the region of the Argonne the rem
nants of tho six German armies are
moving with all the speed possible to
the fatigued soldiers. At this point
alone rests the salvntlon of German
arms In France. The allies are con
fident of victory. The flight con
tlnues. The British and French have crossed
the Aisne. the allies'. centre is north
of tho Marne, while In tho east St.

many, the allies are pressing the Ger
mans. In Belgium the Invaders have been
more successful today, pushing back
the Antwerp army to the city fortifi
cations. Other reports, however,
state that Brussels will be retaken by
the army of King Albert and that the
country will be freed from the enemy
within a few days. Meanwhile, Rus
sian reinforcements for the allies are
landing at Ostend
In Austria the Russians are moving
toward Vienna Panic reigns In the
capital. The doom of the dual mon
archy seems inevitable, us the whole
army of the north has been crushed.
Two hundred thousand prisoners have
been taken, the Carpathians crossed
and all roads cleared to the invaders.
Servla on the south is moving toward
Budapest. A bridge has been erected
across the Save.

PARIS, Sept. 14.
"The German armies of Invasion
again have been dlsloged from nil their
fortified positions and are retreating
with rapidity and in disorder every
where." This official announcement was Is
sued here by General Galllenl, the Mil
itary Governor of Paris, on authority
from the War Department at Bordeaux,
ut 3 o'clock this afternoon.
The statement says that the Ger
mans had prepared a line of defenses
north of the Aisne and In the vicinity
of Rheims. where they hpd attempted
to rally their forces and make a stand,
but that the overwl Jfnlng strength of
the French pursuit tbrced them again
The Germans have evacuated Am
iens, retreating in the direction of
Peronne and St. Qucntln
From Nancy to the Vosgcs the re
treat Is general. The French territory
In this vicinity Is now totally evacuated.
From the stubborn resistance of the
army under the German Crown Prince
at the southern end of the region of
the forest of the Argonne, which was
tho last to give way before tho tre
mendous pressure of the French. It Is
probable that the next great battle will
take place In that region.
The allies have continued n push for
ward their ndvance columns and have
reoccupied a score of towns previously
enptured by the Germans.
More than 500,000 fresh troops of the
allied army are being held In Paris to
be hurled against the Invaders when
they turn at bay for a final stand.
The Germans are retreating on the
only line of communication they hold
Intact and unthreatoned, west of the
forest of Argonne, through Namur,
Liege, tho valley of the Meuso and
Late reports state that the general
retirement of the five German armies
is becoming a rout. They have been
forced to abandon the valley of the
Olse, which would be their natural
route, and are withdrawing to the
jorth through the barren and difficult
country of Champagne. The other pos
sible lino of retreat, by Mezieres and
Montmedy to Luxemburg, Is com
manded by the French guns at Ver
dun. The armies of Generals von Kluk and
von Buelow are retiring with rapid
ity from the points which three days
ago were the scene of the fiercest fight
ing by the German centre.
The Germans have retired north and
east of Rheims, and It is evident they
do not Intend to make a stand there.
Fiom Chateau-Thierry, a correspond
ent reports that the German General
Staf's plan of campaign now involves
the evacuation of the northwest of
France and Belgium and a concentra
tion eastward, either for the purpose
of a rebound against the allies or to
save the Empire Itself, as events may
This means abandonment of the hope
of attacking Paris In the near futuro.
Tho new plan means Improved western
communication and a general concen
tration of the allies with an opportu
nlty for a decisive battle possibly on
the lino of Laon, Rheims and Chalons.
Even If the combined German armies
of the Aisne and the Argonne are de
feated, then there will remain the great
fortresses of the Rhine and the Mosello.
Twenty thousand Germnit'AtTfAiS-'
to have fallen in the fighting: at Nancy
and 11,000 more at Lunevllle. French
officers claim that at least 50,000 Ger
mans must have beer, killed In the at
tempts to cut through the Anglo
The Germans are not only suffering
from lack of provisions and ammuni
tion, but their movements are also
hampered by a scarcity o cavalry
The German army under General von
Kluk, which made up the right wing
of the grand host of six separata
armies, is now said to be between 60
and 70 miles from the most advanced
point which it occupied on the swing
toward the southeastward when tho
allies were giving ground.
According to ttw officiil announce
ment of tho War Ofllce. the various
sections of the retiring German army
now hold a line which, roughly epeaJ.
Ing, extends immediately north of Laon
southeastward through the forest of
Argonne, thence In a northerly direc
tion in the rear of Verdun and north
east of Nuncy and Lunevllle.
The French forces in the Department
of Muerthe-st-Mosehe are pushing
northward from Lunevllle and Nanoy
along the Moselle Valley, with the
orobabl Intention of getting east of
the German army. If the Germans at
tempt to cut their way through tho
French forces holding positions at Ver
dun, the French from the valley of the
Moselle will be In a position to rein
force them. Otherwise, the French
could throw a strong force across ths
Meuse near Charlevtlie and Meziere In
an effort to block the Germans from re
tiring Into Luxemburg.
