London, Oct. 21, 2.30 P. M.—The
first consignment of food supplies for
the relief of the people of Brussels is
on tfae London docks ready for ship
ment to Rorfterdam. W. H. Page, the
American Ambassador, has consigned
this food direct to Brand Wlhitlo'ck. the
American minister in the Belgian cap
ital. Each box and bag is distinctly
marked with its purpose and destina
tion in accordance with the request of
the German government made at the
time it granted permission to send the
supplies to Brussels.
The American and the Spanish min
isters at 'Brussels are the patrons of
the plan to revictual that city, which
probably will be extended to t%e send
ing of supplies to other Belgian cities
where food is lacking.
Krnest Selvay. of Brussels, is the
chairman of this food committee whvh
is now taking on a national scope be
cause of the great needs of IMalines,
ibouvain, Liege and other Belgian
cities. Four million fran"s were sub
scribed in one day in Brussels but out
side help is necessary to prevent star
vation among the Belgian people. The
committee doubtless will open head -
quarters in London and make direct
shipments to islated Belgian cities and
towns. Such organization and relief is
necessary to prevent a furtlher exodus
of Belgians to Holland, France and

Loudon, Oct. 21. 7.50 A. M.—The

ed at Tondern, in Sclilesnig, and at
Rostock, on the war front now near the
Baltic sea, in Mecklenburg-Schwerin.
Philadelphia, Oct. 21.—Left ponni
less a mouth ago, when her husband
went to France to rejoin his regiment

covered that her soldier-spouse has more
than $2,000 on deposit with the Land
Title «nd Trust Company. Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Fox will institute pro
ceedings tu recover the fund for the
benefit of the wife.
Ju.'es Fiecli#, who is a chauffeur,
made no provision for Mrs. Fleche cn I
their child of a year. The wife was
foroed to ask Judge Gorman, in the
Juvenile Court, to obtain a home for
the baby. An order of $3.50 a week was
made on the county for its support.
When Mrs. Fleehe's case was presented
to the Domestic Relations Court an in
vestigation disclosed the existence of
the fund.
300,000 Wounded in France
liOndon, Oct. 21.—Dr. Leslie Jiaden
Guest, who established six Augio-
French hospitals in Franee, declared
yesterday that the number of wounded
in France is estimated a' half a mil
lion. As evidence of the superioritv of
the French artillery, Dr. Guest says,
German soldiers treated in French hos
pitals are much more badly wounded
than are French and British soldiers.

Loudon, Oct. 21.—The City Temple,
one of London's best-known churches,

Latter Resume Offen
sive All Along West
ern Battle Front in
France and Belgium
Reports Through Dutch Sources De
clare Germans Have Been Repulsed
Six Miles From Ostend and That
Guns Are Now Heard Near There
London, Oct. 21, 10.10 A. M.—A
comparison of the official reports from
Paris and Berlin leads to the conelu
sion that all qlong the western battle
front in France and Belgium the Ger
mans have resumed the offensive, but
with their supreme efforts directed
against the allies' left.
The news supplementing these official
communications, however, indicate that
on the left, at least, the allies are not
acting merely on the defensive.
The great turning movement is un
doubtedly developing through the cor
ner of Belgium bounded 'by France and
the sea, but the public remains in a
haze as to whether the turning move
ment is one ou the part of the allies to
get around the German right flank or a
German operation to envelope the al
lies' left.
Germans After Dunkirk
The impression grows that the Ger
mans ar determined to add Dunkirk to
the line of seaports uow held along the
Belgian coast and the allies are making
desperate efforts to hurl back the in
vaders. l«ate reports through Dutch
sources declare that the Germans have
been repulsed six miles from Ostend
and that guns arc- now heard near that
city. Other late reports, which lack
confirmation, state that the Germans
have abandoned Bruges. If these re
ports are true, it would indicate that
the allies are meeting with some suc
cess in their efforts to reoccupy the sea
The movements along the coast con
tinue to be more or less in the nature
of reconnaisance movements, while the
aim of the fighting on the allies' left
centers around Lille, because its rail
road and highway connections are of
vital htra'ogic importance to the Ger
mans. From Lille two roads run out
to tiie west—one northerly to Armen
tieres and the/ other southerly to
Fournes through a country which is en
closed and thickly populated.
Berlin Claims a Victory
The French report contents itself
with the assertion that these roads are
hold by strong forces of Germans, white
the Berlin communication claims a vic
tory on them The operations along
these roads may also merely 'be a
reconnaisance movement, checked by
the Germans, but all reports agree that
the German resistance at Lille continue.)
to be of the most stubborn nature.
Only the most meagre reports arrive
from the eastern war area, but it is
clear that the Russians are at least
holding their own. Both sides are evi
dently entrenching and the Vistula riv
er region promises to become another
battle of the Aisne.
The allies console themselves for the
Russian withdrawal from western Ga
licia and the advanced (positions near
the Russian-Polish border by the be
lief that the Germans, having commit
ted themselves to an invasion of Rus
sian Poland, will not be .as likely to
send reinforcements to the armies in
the west as would have been the case
if the Russians had suffered a great
reverse nearer the German frontier.
Military Operations in Center
Outside of the purely military opera
tions in the center in the Russian Em
peror's ukase against vodka and the
efforts being made to care for the Bel
gians still in their own country and to
feed and repatriate those who have
taken refuge in other countries, Ber
lin states that no obstacles would be
placed in the way of this necessary
work, but. at the same time, calims that
Germany has done nil possible, in view
of military exigencies, to jelieve the
distress in Belgium.

Petrograd, Oct. 21.—A statement}
regarding the claim of the enemy that i
the Russian casualties around Przemysl
exceed 40,000 men is made public here
by the official news agency. It reads:
"The German official communica
tions have adopted a policy of grossly

known that the Austrians' announce

losses one hundred times."

London, Oct. 21, 4.20 A. M.—The ;

'' A general advance has been made
by the allies, who are fighting mainly
with artillery. The host- work is be
ing done by the British naval guns.
Large numbers of French and Belgian

"The assistance rendered by the Brit

London, Oct. 21.—As indicating the
heavy toll of the British officers since
the war began, a well-known American
woman hero said yesterday:
"Just previous to the departure of
the British expeditionary force, an
American woman in London was host- '
ess for a dinner party at which 20 of- 1
ficer ß of the army were present. Bhe '
learned yesterday that lu of them have
since been killed in action." '
This heavy toll was further illustrat- (
ed by the Rev. R. J. Campbell, minister
of City Temple, who told his congrega
tion on Sunday of a dinner given in
July in honor of a young man who was :
just coming of age, and of that gather
ing all had been killed, so far, except (
one, and that one was thought to be :
dead. ,
Chicago, Oct. 21.—For the first time
in sixteen years meat-packers at Chi
cago stock yards are working day ami
night in the canned meat and hide de
partments, to fill large orders received
as a result of the European war. In
the Banning departments alone 3,000
extra men have been put to work with
in n week to operate the plants at their
fullest capacity.
The visi'ble supply of canning beef
was depleted several weeks ago and
the packers began sending to foreign
fields for cattle suitable for this pur
pose. As a result Canada, Mexico and
Southern States which never before
shipped live stock to this market have
been sending their cattle here and re
ceiving a good price.
The packers announce that their en
tire stock of hides on hand has been
contracted for and that orders have
been received which will exhaust the
normal supply for November and De
I'nti'l recently the normal trade in
*hides in Chicago has averaged from
40,000 to 75,000 a week. Last week
