' The Invaders' assaults were espe
cially violent east of the Olso and north

' At 3 o'clock this afternoon tho War
Office Issued this omclal statement:
On our left wlngr, on the right
bank of the Olse, we have advanced
to the heights of Lasslgny (west of
Noyon). East of the Olse and to
t the north of the Alsne the Germans
havo shown an Increase In activity.
Violent attacks turning Into bay
onet charges havo been delivered
In tho region of Craonne. The
memy has been repulsed at all
points with considerable losses.
Around Rhelms the enemy has
made no Infantry attack, but has
confined his efforts to bombarding
cur front with his heavy pieces.
At the centre In Champagne and
en the west side of tho Argonne,
beyond Soualn, we have taken
Uesnll, Ixic Hurlus and Maoslse.
In the Wocvre region tho enemy
holds the region of Thlancqurt and
has bombarded Harron-Chateul.
On tho right wing (Lorraine and
'the Vosgcs) there is no change.

Sixteen words constituted an addi
tional official statement Issued at Bor-
jldeauT this afternoon. It follows:
"We are confident that tho Allies
hold a favorable position In the great
tattle now progressing."
Today's announcement Is the first
flnce the bnttle of the Alsne began
stating that either side had resorted to
the bayonet. This Indicates that on
this, Ihe ninth day of the battle, the
artillery duel which has been raging
for many days, resulted In a drawn
battle and that the other forces have
now been brought into action.
The Allies have thrown forward
heavy bodies of men to engage tho
Activity of the French and British
around Solssons shows that the Allies
are continuing their flanking move
ment against the troops of General
on Kluk, who appears in Imminent
danger of being surrounded. Heavy
reinforcements have been rushed to
ton Kluk's aid.
The French have been nble to move
their JieaUest artillery to the firing
line east of the Olse, near its Junction
lth the Alsne, and a continuous night
and day bombardment against the
German positions Is In progress. Ac
cording to the ofllcla! announcement,
the hardest lighting Is in progress near
Boissons. on the extreme western end
of the battle line, und near Rhelms,
In the centre.
The bombardment of Rhelms con
tinued today with unabated fury, Tho
heavy German guns, mounted on the
lights three miles from the city, aro
knocking down tho wnlls of the prin
cipal buildings of the town and many
noncombatants have been klllod. The
Hotel do VUle, the museum, the sub
prefecturo and all neighboring build
ings havo been destroyed almost com
pletely. It won announced today.

Both Solssons and Rhelms are re
ported to be In flames. Solssons has
been under flro since fighting In tho
prcsont battle began. Rhelms has
been bombarded for 84 hours.
Farther to the cast, near tho Ar
gonne district; In the Meuse Valley
and tho Vosges, fighting Is less severe,
but Is still going on.
The destruction along the valley of
the Alsno' Is appalling. 'Wounded sol
diers, returned officers and prisoners
from the front doscrlbe tho loss of life
as colossal. Tho stretch of lowland
between the hills flanking tho Alsne
is described as a valley of death and
Day and night tho bombardment
goes on until one wonders In amass

to keep their batteries In action all the
It Is confidently believed by the
French military authorities In Paris
that tho German positions can be o
thoroughly weakened by the cannonade
that tho French and British will be
able to sweep the Germans from their
entrenchments at the point of the
bayonet, despite the reinforcements.
Already, It Is said, tho French havo
been ablo to silence several of the Ger
man batteries at that point, compelling
them to take up new positions.
Tho effect of tho German artillery
fire upon the French and British troops
tins been terrible, it Is admitted. Some
of the heaviest German guns have been
shelling the allied positions from a dis
tance of seven miles. AH are cleverly
masked. It Is admitted that one of tho
largest guns, which hns done great
damage. Is so successfully concealed
that the Allies have been unable to
So far the fighting has been a fierce
artillery duel, partaking of the quali
ties of a siege. Now, however, with
both sides beginning to use more and
more Infantry, the lighting should be
near Its end. The present week should
seo the tide of victory and defeat flow
ing In clearly marked channels.
Whether It will result In the Germans
taking the offensive movement in an
effort to pierce the French and British
lines, or whether the Allies will be able
to roll back the German legions to the
frontier, remains to be seen.
N'o matter how the present battle
goes, all of northeastern France, from
Paris to the Belgian and German fron
tiers, will have been ravaged, devas
tated and scourged. It Is as though
the hands of God, sweeping In divine
wrath, had withered and wasted tho
land for the sins of Its people.
The French and English have been
successful In taking big bodies of pris
oners, but It seems that the gaps In
the German ranks are filled as soon
as they are made. More than 10,000
prisoners of war now are Interned In
this city, all having been brought In
within the laBt week.

The War Today
Bayonet charges by the Germans In
another doiermlned effort to pierce
the Allies' centre at Craonne havo
been repulsed. The Invading Teutons
had renewed the assault along the
entire 120-mlloe front of the Alsno
battle line. The French and British
conttnuo their attempt to outflank
General von Kluk's forces on the ex
treme German right wing.
Belgium forces, harassing the German
right flank, havo Interfered so with
operations against the Allies that
heavy artillery has been rushed to

by King Albert. Tho Germans aro

Two million men are ongaged In the
third Important Gnllclan battlo of
the war. Tho Russians, reinforced
by fresh troops and encouraged by
the evacuation of Jaroslaw, the In
vestment of Przemysl on three sides,
the capture of Dublccko and other
smaller fortified position, are engag
ing General Dankl'n army and have
continued successful In various en
gagements with his rearguard. In
dications point to Russian numeri
cal superiority on tho field, as the
Southern Poland and Gallclan armies
are co-operating as a unit, and tho
AustrlanB have again been placed on
the defenslvo In order to protect tho
line of communication to Cracow.
In East Prussia three German army
corps (120,000 men), under General
Hlndcnburg, have started an ag
gressive movement against Russian
"Poland. Grodno, on tho main lino
between Warsaw and Potrograd, Is
the immediate objective. The de
feated Russian armies of Grodno and
Vllna have Joined to resist the ad
vance. Montenegrin troops seized the town
of Rogbitza, 30 miles from Sarajevo,
the capital of Bosnia, and continued
their march to within ten miles of
the stronghold. Tho capturo of
Sarajevo Is confidently expected.
Berlin War Ofllco reports successful
attacks at several points along the
line and announces arrival of heavy
reinforcements. The French' "liavo
been repulsed with heavy looses
wherever they assumed the offen
sive, It' was added. Further proof
of superiority of German artillery
Is said to have been given In the
engagement along tho Alsne.
London War Office reports the arrival
of 100,000 men to save the wavering
army of von Kluk, with the Allies
continuing their flanking movement.
It Is admitted that the casualties of
tho allied forces aro heavy, largely
because of the difficulty In locating
masked German batteries.
Vienna admits the evacuation of Jar
oslaw, which was burned before the
army left. Tho Russians have won
several engagements with the rear
guard of General Dankl's reinforced
army, which has again been put on
the defensive. Tho evacuation of
Jaroslaw Is ascribed to stateglc rea
sons. Involving aid to Przemysl nnd
protection of the lino of communica
tion to Cracow. Reverses to Dankl's
army havo caused gloom In Vienna,
where hope ran high t..at Its Junc
tion with that of Von Auffenberg
would result In stopping the Russian
advance in Gallcla.
Petrograd War Office reports continued
success In the Gallcla.i campaign.
Grodek, Sambor and Dublccko al
ready are taken, the capture of the
laHt named clearing the way to an
advance westward. Przemysl, cap
ture of which Is prerequisite to mov
ing west on Cracow and carrying the
aggressive Into Silesia against Bres
lau and Posen, has beerr invested.
Some of the Russian Jroops are pro
ceeding westward. Investment of
Przemysl and evacuation of Jaroslaw
have left the Russians free to movs
nearer Cracow, where the fiercest
Austrian resistance Is expected.
British Admiralty reports both suc

disabled the English cruiser Pegasus
near Zanzibar, and the German crui

alty admits. The German Baltic fleet,
flying the flag of Prince Henry of
Prussia, Is reported to have seriously
damuged the Russian fleet near the
Gulf of Finland. The Allies claim
control of the Atlantic, Mediterranean
and North Sea.
Rumania's entrance Into the war on
