today when the steamship docked at Pier

PARIS, Sept. 30.
Today's official report of the general ;
operations, In every way was favorable)'
to the Allies, emphasized the fact that
tho general turning movement of th
Allies north of tho Somme now was
progressing rapidly. It further
pointed out for the first time that tho
ground lost along tho Mcuso at St.
Mihlel, where tho Germans sucfeded
in crossing to tho west bank 'of tho
rher, had been regained. The French
armies are now operating east of tho
The announcement that the general
turning movement of the Allies north
of the Somme progresses rapidly Is
taken here to mean that the with
drawal of the German right wing al-
I ready Is In progress. It had been
recognized for several days that when
the German line gave way at this
point it would mean the retirement of
the entire German army to the new
positions already prepared In Belgium
and between th Srlcshit and tho
Meuse Rivers. That this movement is
already in progress Is believed certain
It Is not assumed that there will ba
any rout of tlie Germans. The aerial
scouts have already reported that theso .
new positions have been prepared, ex-'
aotly as those now held by the Germans1
were, and It Is expected that the Ger
mans will fall back In good order
fighting as they go. Every effort, how
ever, is being made by the French
forces to penetrate the line between tho
armies of General von Boehn and Gen
eral von Kluk. This movement Is now
in progress. If it succeeds It will mean
that a part at least of Von Kluk's army
and probably part of Von Buelow's can
be cut off.
Military experts pointed out that tho
significance of tho operations along the.
Mcuse can hardly he overestimated. It
was at this point that the Bavarian
army delivered Its most telling blows !n
the npparent hope that they could di
vert attention from the German right,
force the withdrawal of part of tho
allied forco on the left to aid the Imper
iled centre and thus enable Von Kluk;
to strike a decisive blow. That has defi
nitely failed and now the German cen
tre is in grave danger In its turn.
Tho experts united nlso In declaring
that the end of tho battle of the Alane
Is in sight, and that like tho battle of
the Marne, It will prove a decisive vic
tory for the Allies. They declare It Is
likely to hasten the end of the war, as
two successive defeats of this magni
tude can he expected to encourage tho
antl-war party In Germany, already
largo becnuEc of the terrible losses.
