The War Ofnce, In Us official state ment today, declared tho operations In France had settled down to a general artillery duel, Interspersed with fre nuent assaults at the vital points alons tho line. Tho report says: While tho fighting Is general, It Is not apparent nt any line of the battle that tho conflict has entered Into deciding stages. The German right has been subjected to severe pressure, but every attempt to penetrate It has been repelled with great loss to the enemy. On tho centre there las been no decided change for nearly a week, while on the left the fighting con tinues. Our forces continue to make gains along the lines of the Mcuse. In an earlier statement the Govern ment emphatically denied tho British contention that more than one subma rine took part In the attack on the cruisers Cressy, Abouklr and Hogue. The report of the Cressy's o. leers that nho fired on the U-D are characterized as false. Not a slngte shot was fired from the three cruisers that were sunk. Tho L'-n was in action 47 minutes, and after the thrco cruisers had been sunk was pursued until nightfall bv a fleet of cruisers, destroyers and torpedo boats, but escaped under cover of dark ness. It Is reported from the front that tho Belgians, during a sortlo from Antwerp, occupied for a time tho vlt lage of Linden, near Louvaln. In that village Is a castle belonging to a Dutch family named Van Blankenhagen. This Dutch family, out of goodness of heart, had turned the castle Into a temporary Red Cross hospital. Upon the roof both Dutch and Hed Cross flags were floating. Inside 40 Belgian soldiers were undergoing treatment. The Belgians fired upon tho village and the castle was burned. This Is attributed to tho anger of the Bel gians, who accused the Dutch Gov ernment of allowing German troops to cross Dutch territory, A mass-meeting of leading financiers, business men and others was held here, when a resolution was unanimously adopted providing the success of tho recent war loan. Those attending the meeting stated their readiness to make any sacrifices to see that the German Government has sufficient finances to carry the war to a successiui conclusion MEN WHO GASPED AT "OCEAN HELL" ........ ,,, , .jm ,, , .

TSING-TAO FORTS TARGET OF JAPANESE BOMBARDMENT Fleet Begins Shelling Leasehold Town; Land Assault Continues. TOKIO, Sept. . The Japanese fleet has begun tho bom bardment of the German fortresses at Tslng-Tao. Official announcement to this effect was made today. According t a Pekin dispatch, th Ger mans have evacuated tho Waldersee line of defenso because of an overwhelming force of English and Japanese troops. Tslng-Tao is now completely invested, the repjrt says. The 'and forces of the Japanese and their allies have driven back the outer defenses of the Germans in Kioa-Chau. capturing four quick-fire gtirw and 50 prisoners. Th followinc official announcement of. the Pghttns In Kiao-Chau was glvn out by the War Office today: "On September 2T the Japanese casual ties were IM.

Director Porter had a tasto of the "flogging triangle" today when ho visited the prison ship "Success," now anchored off the Market street wharf. Stretched out on the triangle, "a very uncomfort able position," as he called It, Director Porter posed for a photograph, a symbol of the triumph of modern penal methods against the Inhumun ways of old. With Director Porter were the Board of In spectors ol the Eastern Penitentiary, Warden Robert J. McKcnty, of the peni tentiary, and a number of friends. The party was invited by Captain Smith, of the Success, to view the ship privately. They were so Impressed with , what they saw, the Instruments of pun ishment, the cells, the solitary confine- i ment deck and the general atmosphere that pervades the "ocean hell " as the Success was called when In commission. that they entered and re-entered the ( cells In an endeavor to get closer to the j experiences of suffering and horror to I which human beings were subjected as late as fort years ago, when the ship and four sister ships used for the same pirpose were abolished. When some one In the party commented on the fact that the ship typified the most horrible example of man's Inhu- I inanity to man, Warden McKcnty de- clared, "I can show you things Just as i bad in this country," which brought to , mind tho fact that there are et many ' things in the way of prUon refoim to be accomplished in this country. In the party. beMdes Director Porter , and Warden McKenty, were Robert A ' Balfour. Charles Carver. Dr. Charles D. , Hart and John K.

CT,rM, ,,. By WILMAM PHILIP SIMMS PARIS, Sept. 29. That tho battle' which will end tho war will be fotight soon, probably before the cxtrcmo cold weather sets lit, Is the opin ion of foreign military attaches here. They believe that It must take place probably Immediately after tho battle of the Aisne enters Into Its decisive stages. And the majority of them look for simultaneous conflicts, onb In Bel glum and west of tho Rhine, and the j other In the eastern theatre of activities, probably In East Prussia. French officers to whom I talked on my trip from the front seemed to share the same opinion. They declared that there was such a decided contrast between tho spirits of the Germans and the Allies that It became very noticeable. Tho French soldiers are absolutely confident of victory. In fact they are so con vinced they arc the superiors of tho Ger mans that the chief difficulty of officers Is keeping their troops from recklessly exposing themselves. I had an opportunity personally to ob serve tho spirit of tho French soldier. The thing that most Impressed mo was his complete cheerfulness and his desire to continue on the offensive night and day. I was surprised to find regiments of soldiers made up from those who left the French shops and factories and who, ac cording to the German military com ments, could not stand haidshlp abso lutely disregarding exposure, and In every way healthy. Under a nasty cold drizzle, with their uniforms soaked and the water dripping from the lips of their noses, they would sing and Jest with each I other. The Inspector general declared that on tho average there were fewer French i soldiers sick at present than during the I maneuvers or other strcnuousless times when war conditions do not prevail. De spite this the utmost endeavors are be ing made to provide the army with win ter clothing. Henri Galll, the Paris deputy, announced todu that he is en- deavorlng to have tho Government be gin tho manufacture of warm clothing I and thus solve the problem of the un employed.
