Clark, of Montana, who ar rived front Europe yesterday on the Adriatic, in a positive manner denied' the authorship of a published report at tributed to iiim in relating to alleged atrocities against a Belgian family. The report was given out as a pub tic statement by Prince Nicholas Kn galitcliaff, former Russian vive consul in Chicago, on his return from Europe on September 11 and was to the effect that -Sir. <lark had authorized him to tell tihe American people Mr. Clark had in his care a 16-year-old girl whose father had been killed and her mother compelled to submit to indignities by Herman soldiers. "I know absolutely •nothing of the affair," said Mr. Clark, "and I regret that my name -has Seen attached to it.: I was at my chateau near Paris and re mained there until the Germans ap proached within thirty miles of the city i when with my faiui'y I went to Havre.

They began to intrench between Middelkerke and Westende, but were observed by the Britisn war >liips, which were protecting the end of the Belgian line, and were shelled out of their positions, retreating to Osi.end, which the British fleet proceeded to bombard. To the south the Allies occupy Rollers, which is further west than Lille and offers advantages for an enveloping movement. From Routers they have reached Courtrai. still further threatening Lille.

HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, FRIDAY EVENING-. OCTOBER 28, 1914. t j VOX HOLTKK MRAVKLY ILL; IS REPORTED TO BE DYING Amsterdam, Oct. 23.—A private let ter received from a high official in Ber lin says Lieutenant General fount Hel mut h von Moltke, chief of the German general staff, is dying. Everything is being done to keep the news secret. General von Moltke is suf fering from an affection of the liver. The cure he was undergoing was inter rupted in duly by the German mobiliza tion. He lias now had to leave Em peror William's headquarters, General von Falkenhavn, the Prussian Minister of War, being left in charge. Many Herman officers ascribe the check to the German advance to the forced retirement of General von Moltke.

M.—While the German armies on the west wing I are slowly pressing forward against the : strongest" opposition in the region be j tween i>ille an(t the channel in a cam- I paigu to straighten out the flank whieh ! in the earlier stages of the struggle, 1 was bent back almost to the Belgian | frontier in ordgr to cover the communi ! cations with the home land, the situa , tion to the eastward, on the fortress ; line of Verdum, Toul and Belfort, has j changed but little since the end of j | September. A report received directly from that ! ! region by the Associated Cress shows j that the German armies betweeu Ver • dun and Toul still retain a footh«ld on ; the west bank of the Meuse bofore St. i Mihiel, despite the repeated French ef i forts to eject them. Tbe Germans ap | parently are content to hold the posi , tions gained pending the inauguration j of an artillery attack against Verdun. To Start New German Wedge | The captured barrier fort of Campe i Komains now a part of German line and a German bridge across the Meuse, I protected by formidable works at the | bridge bead offer a thoroughfare for | starting a German wedge against the i center of tho French line. The French attacks seeiu to come I more from a southern, even a south j easterly direction from the region of I Toul. Nancy and Pont-a-Mousson , I against the original flank of the Ger . man positions than against the point ; of the wedge at St. Mihiel. The fortress j positions at Toul are too strong to of | fer the possibility of taking them by i storm and thereby forcing a retirement i of the French line. Southward of Toul, particularly in the Vosges mountain region, compara- I tive quiet prevails and no major opera- I t'ons appear to be in progress. Trenches Marvels of Ingenuity Between Verdun and Toul both sides ■ | dug themselves in most thoroughly. • The French and German trenchcjj are i marvels of ingenuity and the advance posts are snugly ensconsed in these shelter pits. Kven tiie commanding gen eral, far in the rear has a bomb proof beside his headquarters in which he - takes shelter if the enemy's heavy j artillery choosex to drop a shell or two - i in his vicinity. lj The machine gun is so effective in i this warfare that advances require al most as elaborate sapping and digging I as did the old style of attack on fort r resses. The attacking force pushes for ward a successive line of trenches which sometimes approach within twen < tv yards ot' the enemy. Mining and counter mining is used in the struggle for the trenches. Aeroplane scouting is MI effective that batteries must be com pletelv masked bv brunches or even placed in regular sol house? escape -•♦ flection. It is regrrttali'' •'.«:< mi. ' tarv requirements forbid a dc ription of some of the ingenuous methods of concealment. | Artillery Drives Aeroplanes High Aeroplanes in turn have been driven to high regions of the air by artillery ' fire, particularly from anti-balloon suns. They now scout at height of 7.500 feet instead of 4.500 feet as j they did earlier in the-war. The heavy artillery is located, as in ! September, well to. the rear, but occa sionally receives the enemy's compli j ments in the shape of a shower of ! shrapnel from an audacious field bat tery which creeps up within ranje or from heavy shells from the long range. ; high angle guns. Much of the heavy | artillery practice occurs at night to avoid aeroplane detection. Such guns, which are operated exclusively in in j direct firing never see the target and are naturally quite a* accurately aimed in the darkness as in daylight. Desperate Struggles in the Woods Certain regions of the fortress lino 011 the eastern front are.heavily wood ed as in the Argonne forest, west of J Verdun. The struggles in the woods of Arrcmont. southeast of St. Mihiel, have ! been quite as de'sperate and sanguinary i as in the Argonne forest. The fighting j in these French forests is not only on the surface but also is aerial and uu ' derground. Riflemen and the machine guns operate by preference from the tree tops. Ground at the surface is de scribed as one continuous maze of wire j entanglements, wolf traps and so forth j and an advance is so difficult there ! that the soldiers burrow forward from ! the trenches and endeavor to blow up ; their opponents. The German hospital arrangements as seen in the Argonne region arc ad mirable. Automobile busses are doing particularly good work in the rapid transport of wounded from the battle field to the field hospitals. One column ! of Berlin automobile busses brought i 300 wounded from a battle in Argonne which started at noon and delivered them at the field hospital more than fifty miles in the rear by 5 o'clock. ! Seats have been removed from the am bulances and racks inserted on which ; twelve stretchers can be placed.
