Opinion Prevails in
London That Battles
in North Belgium Are
Adverse to Germans
Report That Kaiser's Troops Have
Evacuated Ostend and Are on Way
to Bruges—British Ships Said to
Be Shelling the City
• London, Oct. 22, 10.30 A. M.—Re
ports that the Germans had evacuated
<Jstend andt were retreating toward
Bruges and that the West Flanders
army, from the vicinity of the coast
foutli to Courtrai, was being hammered
into a zigzag line by the combined ef
forts of the British navy and the Brit
ish, French and Belgian troops, seemed
to coincide at so many points to-day
that in the absence of claims of any
advances from Berlin, opinion here was
that the lighting among the canals of
.North Belgium, which followed the
German rush from Antwerp, had boon
generally against the invaders.
At any rate the Germans at one
point have been driven back as far as
Thourout and some dispatches say that
their communications in the middle of
West Flanders have been so disorgan
ized lhat troop? from Ghent are march
ing direct to Courtrai rather than ,;oin
their comrades to the north who arc in
danger of being cut off.
Evacuation of Ostend Not Confirmed
Jhe evacuation of Ostend was not
confirmed this morning but from Berlin
itself came a report that British ships
■were shelling that town while another
dispatch said that the guns of the war
vessels had destroyed the village of
fiiype on the canal between Ostend and
Bruges, where it is said the Germans
have their headquarters. At Sluis, only
a few miles northeast of Slype in
1340, a British fleet achieved a vic
tory over the French.
It is clear now that ships have been
playing an important part in the war
fare along the coast. The admirality
officially announces that the monitors
Sverne, Humbor and Mersey not only
bombarded the Uermon position south
of Ostend but landed detachments of
marines with machine guns. It is re
ported from other sources that eleven
war vessels in all are taking part in the
operations but what they are is not
Dodge Submarine Attacks
Curiously enough the monitors re
tain that title from "Lincoln's cheese
box" of Civil war fame and so far, ap
parently, they have been able to dodge
submarine attacks, though as reported
on Tuesday at least 12 torpedoes were
discharged at them without one finding
i 9
its mark. How the German submarines
got to Ostend is unknown but pre
sumably they crept down the Dutch
coast, submerging whenever sighted by
a British patrol and then picked their
way carefully through the British mine
With the fighting along the Belgian
coast hardly more than 70 miles from
Dover that area of hostilities neces
sarily holds chief interest with the
British public, though, according to
last night's "Paris official cominunica
j tion there were violent actions here and
j there along more than a 70 mile front,
j extending almost due north and south
I from Nieuport to La Bassee. Every
where the allies claimed to bo holding
their positions.
| Reinforcement of German Right
Reinforcements for the German right
| have been spoken of daily since Ostend
| was taken and to-day comes a report
that Austrian forces were being trans
ferred from the Italian frontier for this
| purpose.
j Rumors that Kmperor William is
seriously ill are filtering in here via
! Paris and this with a report that a Ger
i man fleet is off Falsterbo, Sweden, are
I among the usual crop of unconfirmed
j narratives that London is discussing.
From the east comes a claim of the
j Austrians that they have retaken the
j last point in the Carpathians held by
the Russians and it was added that
j there is "now no enemy on Hungarian
I soil." A reiteration that the Germans
| have been routed south of Warsaw was
the gist of Petrograd's latest eomniuni-
I cation.
I The members of the American com
; mission charged with the duty of send
| ing food to the starving Belgians are
j due to meet in London to-day.
$25,000,000 FRENCH ORDER
South Bethlehem, Pa., Oct. 22. —
j The Bethlehem Steel Company, it was
I stated yesterday by an employe, has ob-
I taiued a contract from France to fur
: nish the French army with 900 six
; inch field guns, to be delieverd in 18
• months.
These guns cost $27,000 to $30,000
apiece, and the contract will, therefore,
> amount to about $25,000,000.
London, Oct. 22, 3.ofi A. M.—Tele
' graphing from Flushing Holland, the
j "Daily Mail's" correspondent says:
"The situation for the Germans in
Belgium is becoming critical. This
j (Wednesday) morning (hey were still
holding Westende and bombarding
j Nieuport, but they were under the fire
of warships. The replies of the Ger
man batteries were falling short of the

'■ Boulers the German line has been bent

Kaiser's Son-in-Law Missing
London. Oct. 22, 3.10 A. M.—Anx
j iety is felt in Brunswick as to the
whereabouts of Dulse Krncst August,
j the German Emperor's son-in-law. The
Duke, who was leading a squadron of
hussars on the French front, is reported
to have been cut off from the German
line and it is feared he has been made
prisoner. His wife, Princess Victoria
Luise, is about to leave for the Emper
or's headquarters.
Paris, Oct. 22, 6.55 A. M.—The la
test dispatches from the battle front ia
France and Belgium told just enough
to make the public eager for more. The
allies' positions having been every
where maintained against the onslaughts
•1' the enemy, to-day 'a official state
ment of the war oflice was the object
of hope on the part of the French.
Meanwhile the fighting forces, be
fore resuming the contest, sought anew
to discover the weak spot in the lines
of one another. The maxim of Na
poleon's memorial, "Do not attack in
the front the positions you can obtain
by turning" is apparently a maneuver
to which the Germans are adhering in
what appears to be a supreme effort.
In this battle of the north the allied
armies, supported by an Knglish squad
ron, have thus far successfully with
stood repeated and fierce attacks of the
enemy. /
The fields of battle in Belgium,
Flanders, Picardy, Champagne, Argon
ne, Lorraine, Vosges and as far as Al
sace, continue to be the scenes of com
bats where the allies have made gains
but a real decisive result is vet await
London, Oct. 22.—Under the head
ing, "America and German Bombs,"
the "Chronicle" prints an appeal to
the United States to stop the sale of
petroleum to Germany. The meaning of
the caption is that American oil will
bo used, if it reaches Germany, to pro
pel bomb-dropping Zeppelins. The
"Chronicle" savs:
"It cannot be a comfortable thing
to the American public to know that it
is supplying Germany with instruments
of barbarism. Germany is leaving no
stone unturned to obtain American sup
plies of petroleum, and there is little
doubt that she is succeeding, to some
extent, at least.
"Let the American journalists ask
the citizens of the United States
whether they will tolerate longer the
departure from their shores to Seandi

millions of gallons of oil destined for

More Swiftly to the
Defense of Warsaw
and Save City From
Official News Bureau at Petrograd Re
ports a Number of Fierce Combats,
in Which the Germans Are Said to
Have Suffered Severely
Petrograd, Oct. 22.—The official
news bureau, in a statement reviewing
the fighting around Warsaw, says:
"The Russian troops displayed ex
ceptional energy in coming to the de
fense of Warsaw and saving the city
from a German bombardment. The
Russian concentration was effected with
greater swiftness than was called for
by strategical reasons.
"Documents taken from prisoners
who were captured during the fighting
near Warsaw show that the Germans
were confident of entering that city be
tween the fifteenth and seventeenth of
Siberian Regini9nts at Front
"The Siberian .cgiments arriving at
Warsaw were immediate'ly sent to the
front, but not before they were warmly
hailed by the population, which was
greatly impressed by the martial ap
pearance of these young soldiers. Dur
ing their bayonet charges at night, in
the forest of Motehidlovsk, the Siberi
an soldiers took many prisoners belong
ing to the Twenty-first German corps.
'' The Seventeenth German corps and
some of their reserve corps, who at
tempted to push forward in the region
between Blonie and iProuschkoff, suf
fered severely. It was there that the
Siberian troops, together with other
Russian forces, inflicted terrible losses
on the enemy. Many villages in the
vicinity were taken and retaken in
hand-to-hand fighting.
Eight Days' Fight on the Vistula
"In engagements near Kozienica the
Caucasian regiments also gave proof of
extraordinary courage. For eight
days these regiments were fighting on
the left bank of the Vistula, in the
marshes where the trenches Were con
stantly under water. Here they sus
tained the fire of the enemy's heavy
artillery, but all the German attacks
were ropulsed.

losses and one regiment had three com
manders seriousily wounded, one after
the other.

going oil to the south of Przemysl,
which has been under way for six days,
