SAYS LONDON DISPATCH
LONDON, Sept. 17.
Germany is striving desperately to
resume the offensive In France, but
so far every effort has been nullified
by the fierceness of the British-French
attack. This fact was emphasized at

where, it was also stated that the gen
eral battle continues, with the slight
advantage so far noted entirely In
faver of the allies.

The War Office announced todav that
It had received advices from Vienna

been arrested 'and taken to Gratis In
Sty Ha, where they are now held awaiting

fessed and to have admitted that they
were paid by Russian agents to signal the

In support of Its charges of vtlleged
cruelties by the Russians the War Ofllce
declares that lieutenant Tledemnnu, of
the Fifth Prussian cuirassiers, found 21
Oei man lecrults lying helpless on the
highway. They had been surprised nt a
point In Knst Prussia the day before by
Cossacks who had In some cases severed
hands at the wrist, In others the feet
below the knee, and In still others had
cut off ears and noses. One Russliu of

FRESH ARMIES FOR
SERYICE IN FRANCE
Lord Kitchener Announces
Movement of Territorials
and Praises Leadership of
Sir John French.
LONDON, Sept 17
Four more British armies, made up of
recruits which England Is now gather
Ing to the colors, will 'be sent across the
English Channel to fight the Germans.
Lord Kitchener, Secretary of State for
War, In addressing the House of Lords
this afternoon made this announcement.
The War Secretary said that the ter
ritorials already were on their way to
fill the over-seas garrisons.
At the present time, Lord Kitchener '
said, England had In, tho field moie than
six divisions of troops In addition to two
In opening his address Lord Kitchener
spoke In the highest eulogistic terms re
gnrdlng Sir John French, British Com-mamler-ln-Chlef,
who, ho said, had met '
every difficulty presented ny the situa- '
tlon In a manner that proved his worth
as n .soldier. "
"Thanha to his superb leadership," ,
continued Kitchener, "the British army
has been able at all times to fight a Merit '
that has thrown tenor Into the enemy
Nothing has been wanting. His every
move has shown he has foreseen what
was to come and has so distributed his
forces that the strongest of German
blows have spent their weight without
bringing the disaster their authors had
"The latest advices from the front do
not change tho published statements. The '
government Is tnklng the people of the
nation Into Its conlldence so far as It 13
able. Every bit of Information that
pioperly can be made public Is published
"Our troops have met with the dlftlcul
ties of a hurd campaign with good heart.
They nre now waiting for the general
forward movement with a good heart.
"When the wind conies, England can
depend on her soldiers to give an ac
count of themselves of which all true
Englishmen will be pioud. '
"Although the struggle Is bound to be !
a long one England can look forward to ;
the final outcome with quiet confidence.
England now has In the field more than
six divisions of troops nnd two cavalry
The statement by Kitchener that the
army In the field now consists of "more
than six divisions and two cavalry divi
sions" Is significant. It means that there
arc not less than 175,000 British now fight
ing In France and confirms the report
that the New Zealand and Indian troops
aie alicady In the line.
The regular British "expeditionary
ntmy," according to the regulations, con
sists of "one cavalry division and six dlvl
slons of the other branches of the ser
vice." Lord Kitchener says there are two
cavalry divisions In action, which maj
mean an entire division of Indian troops.
