BERLIN (by way of wireless through
Payvllte, L. I.), Sept. 24.
The War Ofllce, In Its official state
ment issued today, declares that the
Germans are now bombarding the en
tire chain of tho Meuse fortifications
that extend from Verdun to Toul.
Among the fortresses which are under
nttack, and whose reduction is now
believed certain, are Troyon, Les Pa
rodies, Camp Des Romans, Llouvllle,
Commercy and Glronvllle.
It Is stated that the great siege guns,
with which Maubeugo, Liege and Na

with telling effect here, and that they
are slowly battering the French fort

An investigation Is to be conducted,
and Russian officers accused of having

Newspapers print stories from eye
witnesses, stating that the Cathedral

BORDEAUX. Sept. 24.
It was unofficially admitted hero to
day that tho Germans had captured
Maubeugo. The admission came from
an attache of the French War Office.
General Desseux, the commandant at
Maubeuge, Is reported to have been
badly wounded.
(The capture of Maubeuge and 40,
000 prisoners was officially announced
at Berlin on September 9. This dis
patch is the first from Bordeaux con
firming the Berlin statement.)
Minister of War Millerand stated to
day that the offensive taken by the
Allies continued to be successful. He
said, however, that the termination of
the great battle now raging -could not
be expected for several days.
Preparations are being made for a
winter campaign. It is well under
stood here that the war will be long.
LONDON, Sept. 24.
That the Germans are making a su

French centre between Argonne and
the Mouse is admitted at the War Of

hours the fighting has been continuous
night and day.
The Germans, heavily reinforced,
clearly are trying to force iho with
drawal of part of the French left, which
continues to push tho army of General
von Kluk backward, although very
slowly. Up to the present, it ts stated,
the French lines hao held firm.
The losses on both aides are enor

date. The entire battleground at this
point Is covered with dead and wound
A significant note comes in the an

This means there is to be no let-up In

port Picking Up Many
LONDON, Sept. U.
Nearly half of the officers aboard the
cruisers Aboukir, Creasy and Ilogue when
they were sunk by a German submarine
attack in the North Sea lost their IKes.
This was revealed today when the" Gov
ernment Press Bureau issued a fum
mary of the casualties among tho naval
officers. It showed that 57 had been
killed and 60 rescued.
Twenty-one officers of the Aboukir were
killed and 17 saved. The Cressy lost 23
officer?, only II being rescued. Of the
40 officers of the Hogue 11 were killed
and 25 rescued.
Reports of the rescue of more members
of the crews of the three cruisers had
reduced the estimate. of the dead to
duy to about 1105. but the exact number of
saved und lost will not be learned until
the official reports have all been received
at the Admiralty.
Stories told by the survivors of the
disaster havo failed to cl'ar up many
of the cunfilcting points. The announce
ment in Berlin that the three shir were
sunk by one submarine Is contradicted
by the story told by Albert Dougherty,
chief gunner of the Cressy, who was
resound and taken to Chatham. Dougherty
declares he taw five submarines, mid that
he shattered the conning tower of one
of them.
Dougherty said:
Suddenly I heard a great cranh, an 3.

ALntiltir heeling over and going down

one man was hit, as for as I know.
"We sunk at 7M3, and when I dropped
into the sea, clinging to a bit of wood,

spirit was splendid. We shouted cheery
messages to one' another.
"I was afloat In tho sea for four hours
and then the destroyers hove In sight.
Numbers of men were near mo, all hold
ing to pieces of spar, according to the
captain's instructions, and I yelled to
"Buck up; they're coming for us.""
Sir Percy Scott Contended That Eng
land Needed More Submarines.
The recent North Sea disaster Is re
garded aB supporting the claims mado
by Admiral Sir Percy Scott In his
reply to Lord Sydenham a few days
prior to the opening of the European
At the time Sir Percy, while not un
derrating the value of the battleship or
cruiser, urged an Immediate increaso In
the number of submarines. The latter,
he contended, were of greater efficiency In
mancuvors requiring speed and secrecy.
He said also that they would prove In
valuable In attacks on commerce.
The truth of his contention he sup
ported by citing the success of the Jap
anese In their late war, when, equipped
with torpedoes Inferior to those now in
use, they forced the Russian fleet to re
tire to Port Arthur.
At the time of his speech Sir Percy's
attitude was severely criticised by em
inent naval experts of England.

Senator Shcppard Introduces Econ

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2I.-Prcsldcnt
Wilson's salary will be cut JOOOO, while
the salary of every other Federal em
ploye who draws $100 a month or mora
will be reduced, beginning November 1,
for a war economy measure, if a bill In
troduced today by Senator Shcppard, of
Texas, Is passed.
The proposed cut begins at $1200 sal
aries at 2 per cent., scaling up to 12 per
cent, on all salaries In excess of $6000, so
that tho full effect of the cut would be
felt by Senators, Representatives and
Cabinet officers. AH army and navy offi
cers would also be affected by this cut.
Senator Shcppard has been particularly
displeased by the cut In the river and
harbor appropriations on account of the

Debate on Administration Bill Be

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21,-Launchlng
In the House at noon today of the Admin
istration's "emergency Internal revenue"
war tax bill was tho elgpal for opening of
bitter bombardment and defenso by the
Republicans and Democrats respectively.
Passage of the bill tomorrow intact
without any amendments, except minor
ones coming from the Ways and Jleans
Committee, was certain.
This was shown by a test vote of 221 to
13J to limiting debate. Eleven Democrats
voted against the so-called "gag rule"
as follows: Burke, Church, Detrick,
Uonohoe, Lee (Pennsylvania), O'Shaun
etsy. Raker, Sims. Stevens (New Hamp
shire), Stout and Wlngo. Republicans
forced another rollcall on the adoption
of the rule Itself.
The Senate will take up the bill late
next week, but time elapsing there beforo
final enactment Is problematical.
The opening clash on the war emer
gency measure came when Chairman
Henry, of the Rules Committee reported
the rule to limit debate on tho tax bill
to seven hoiirh, three hours longer than
originally planned, as a concession to
ninny members desiring to speak, forty
minutes of debate only was allowed on
the rule, which the opposition terms a
"gag" rule.

LONDON, Sept u.
"Germany mado a mlslako about India
ne It did about, Ireland, and anybody
who counts on India to bo false to Eng.
land will come a cropper,"
In these words his Highness the Aga
Khan, tho recognized temporal leader
of 60,000,000 of East Indian Mohammo.
dans, sums up for the "World corre
spondent the Indian Empire's status In
tho world's war.
Tho Aga Khan has directed the

spiritual as well as tho temporal head,
to placo their personal services and rol
sources at tho disposal of the Govern
ment, and has volunteorod to sorve him

Infantry of tho Indian expeditionary
Tho Aga Khan laughed heartily over
the suggestion that the Gormanistto
propaganda might undermine tho loyalty
of Groat Britain's Indian subjects. Ho
remarked smilingly:
"Many of my follow countrymen havo
boon In Africa and havo seen tha Ger
man administration In tho German East
and Southwest African colonies. They
know what Germanlzatlon of India would
mean, and they know, too, that if Eng.
land wcro driven out of India, Germany,
should sho ba successful In this war,
would stop In. Tho thinking element
among Indians of all classes realize that
our country, divided as it is Into hun
dreds of principalities, each Inclined to
be Jealous of the others, could not hop
to Btand alono, oven If British rule wor,
withdrawn. '
"Germany's twofold purpose In strlv- !
lng to create dissension In India Is first I
to glvo trouble to England, which might
cost her victory In tho war; second, to ,1
seize India as part of the Kaiser's dream
of world empire.
"This scheme Is as well known to
India as at Berlin. India will need no j
assistance from England to frustrate It, "
because tho Indians fully comprehend tho
peril of being crushed beneath the mailed
fist of Prussian militarism."
Tho Aga Khan's manner became more
grave as ho continued:
"After all, the ono hope of India lies
In the King and Emperor and his Gov
ernment. There can bo no united India
until England has lllshcd her work of
knitting together Into ono strong natlonf
the confusing Jumblo of races, religions
nnd castes sho has governed so suc
cessfully for 1M years.
"An apt comparison Is American
domination of tho Philippines. But
there exist now between England and
India affections and sentiments arising
from their long community of interests
which are not yet found between Fili
pinos and Americans.
"Such feeling I beliovo to be Incom
prehensible to the Germans. It seems
to mo they totally lack a senso of pro
portion, arising from a sympathetic un
derstanding of tho needs of another
people. It Is Incomprehensible to them
that Belgium should have resisted their
advance Into France. Apparently they
fall utterly to understand the feeling
that, for instance, would actuate an .,
American If aj- alien nation attempted
to send an aVmy through the United
States to attack Canada.
"Personally, my antipathy Is not to
ward the German people, who posseis
many fine qualities, hut against ths
Prussian school of Bernhardls, Nletz
scheB nnd the Kaiser's General Staff-
a school designed Dasicany lor tne
crushing of liberalism and Independence
of any kind, whether manifested
Germany or abroad."
"Will Indian troops be able to stand
ngalnBt the German army, considering
they have never .before been permitted
to fight white men?"
"I think so," the Aga Khan replied
with a unlet smile. "If need be thers
