Toward the north and northwest of Paris the Germans have abandoned Amiens and nearby towns, and moving north from their battle line on the Aisne,
have retreated toward St. Quentin. In the centre they have retreated from Rheims, which they had fallen back to from the Valley of the Marne, and have
given up their positions south of the Argonne, while the French have practically regained the frontier near Nancy and the passes in the Vosges, and have
also retaken some of the border towns in Alsace, near Belfort. At Verdun, Berlin reports renewed bombardment, but the French report the Germans under
the Crown Prince as moving north.

PARIS. Sept. 15.-Whllo official reports
are optimistic beyond doubt, It is too
early to claim a decisive and overwhelm
ing victory for the allies. By masterly
stiatcgy tho Gormans have been ablo to
keep the main linos of their vast army
Intact, although thousands of soldiers,
overcome by exhaustion or unable to
find their way, have fallen Into the hands
of the French nnd British armies, aa
well as a vast amount of munitions,
supplies and armaments.
The Gorman army Is far from shat
tered and, nccordlng to olllclal admis
sions In Paris, the only section of tho
Get man grand army which now seems
to be In danger of being cut off from
the other columns Is that of the German
Crown Prince, which is In the region of
the fotcst of Argonne. Because of the
rugged nature of the country In that
district and tho stubborn resistance of
the Crown Prince's soldiers, this section
wus left farther In front than tho bal
ance of the German line.
Tho army of General Von ICluk Is also
believed to have received a supply of
fresh ammunition for both small arms
The extreme left wing of tho French
army, which Is officially known as the
rifth army, has now advanced to a
point slightly northeast of Amiens, the
main body resting around that city. It
hns been part of General Joffre's strat
egy to keep this army moving eastward
und northward as rapidly as possible to
keep hitting at the northwestern ex
tremity of the German line.
From the Information received by tho
Trench General Staff, It is evident that
the Germans havo either fallen back
Into trenches which had been used pre
viously north of the Aisne or else had
be on able to prepare defensive works
fiom which to face the allies,
British troopB are reported to have
crossed the Aisne near the junction of
that river and the Olso, where their
passage was not opposed by German nr
tlllery. This gives the allies a, big ad
vantage, for It makes It unnecessary for
at least a part of their troops to cross
the stream farther to the east, where
they would have to face the German
The rapid pursuit of tho Germans has
worked Its effect upon the soldiers of the
allied army. The advance guard are ahead
of their heavy guns and tho rapidity of
their movements has extended their lines.
It Is believed that the French and British
soldiers who have been rushing forward
In pursuit of the Germans will need to re.
cover their breath and replenish their
ammunition before they can strike a de
cisive blow. On the other hand, the Ger
mans are nearer to their supply depots
and the retirement of tho right flank
brought It Into touch with reinforcements
which had been hurrying forward.
Even If the allies should be checked
and the Germans should launch a general
offensive movement the invaders would
he handicapped by the worn-out condition
of their right wing The troopu of Gen
eral Von Kluk have been marching and
fighting every day for nearly six weeks
and they are hardly In any condition to
swing forward 'upon another encircling
movement which would mean continuous
fighting and forced marching day and
nU'ht Many of the Germans have been
forced to march under such conditions
that the soles are gone from their boots
and their feet are raw and bleeding
If the Crown Prince's army should be
able to stand firm and the Germans would
attempt a forward movement. Von Kluk's
men would be In the position of outside
running, such as that at the bend of a
race track, and they are so tired that
they probably would not be ablo to get
there In time About tho only recourse
under such circumstancta would be for
the Germans to mass fresh troops on their
right and give the worn veterans a
chance for less arduous work.
Being forced back from their present

German could make a stand is that run- I
