PARIS, Dec. 27.
Parla believe that tho beginning of n.

front Is only a matter of days.
For tho last week, while their fiuns bat
tered the Allied positions day and night,
tho Kaiser's troops have been foellnR out

spot at which an attack can br launched.
Where this new assault will come la
not, certain. tt may bo stnrcd on tho
northern front. In Artoia or around Ypres;
alone tho Belgian front, where a new ef
fort to reach Calais may bo ntemptrd: In

place In the autumn; In tho Arcoune,
where the Crown I'rtncc has tried repeat- .Mules

That an attnek will be made at some
point along tho western battle line In

a decrease of J215.O0O.CO0, or a. falling off
at tho rate of about 118,000,000 monthly.
On total exports, foreign and domestic,
there was a falling off during tho 1913-14

oddest nnd most impressive Christmas Al

The id has witnessed few more dra

While soldiers from the lines forgot the
birthday of Jesus, grimly calculating

While the great pipe organs trumpeted
"La Dellvrance" and "Le Noel," by
Adam, guns on Hartmannswetlerkopf
boomed an accompaniment like the roar

Belasco never staged anything as dra

On Christmas Kve I watched the bom

Altkirch. Through the range tinder the
houses of the city seemed only across the
street. The public square was distinctly
visible. It was deserted save for the
passage of a few vehicles or German sol
diers scurrying across eager to get under
cover before the drizzle recommenced.
This was the only place where the Ger
mans were always visible.

While the French guns continued hurl

toward the Germans, some one In the

School in the month when the war began,
but now a. veteran captain, decorated with
the war cross and legion of honor.
"You think man-kllllng and Christmas
anachronisms?" he smiled.
"Well, Americans thought perhaps an
unofficial truce would be observed in
honor of the occasion," was suggested.
"It was a celestial army, not an indi
vidual that rlrat proclaimed the doctrine
of 'Peace on earth, good will toward

Failure at Dardanelles May Destroy
Prestige Among Moslems
BERLIN. Dec. 27.-Rapld Increase In
revolutionary sentiment In England's col
onial possessions In Egypt and tho Orient
particularly India was predicted today
by German officials as a result of the col
lopse of tho Allies' campaign on Gallipot!
peninsula. They said they looked to seo
the Moslems under British domination
rise nnd overthrow their masters.
The belief in Berlin Is that tho Allies
had hoped by n victory at tho Dardanelles
to open the way to Constantinople and
by the capture of that city to shatter the
influence of Turkey among millions of fol
lowers of the Moslem religion.
"It can bo stated," said Captain Lothar
Perslus, the German naval expert, today,
"that tho Dardanelles undertaking is now
definitely wrecked. This fiasco will de
grade, if not destroy, British prestige in
the eastern world."
Continued attack on the Cabinet
from within ns well ns from without
havo weakened tho strength of tho pres
ent Government to such a point that
Impartial observers would not bo sur
prised by scusntlonnl developments In the
near future. Tho Government's loss of
