THE IMPORTANT EVENTS OF THE WORLB TODAYS NEWS NOT YESTERDAYS THE WEATHER Showers tonight and probab ly Tuesday cooler In east con trnl portions tonight VOL XXI MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 15 1914 No j ALLIED ARMIES CONTINUE FORWARD MOVEMENT AND HOSTS OF INVADERS ARE STEADILY I PRESSED BACKWARDS ALL ALONG t THE LINE OF BATTLE LONG LINE OF COMMUNICATION HAS MADE SUPPLIES HARD FOR GERMANS TO GET AND MANY DODIES CAPTURED ARE REPORTED TO HAVE GRY AND BAADLY DEMORALIZED GIVING UP READ STAND MADE ALONG DEFENSES PREPARED TO COVER RETREAT The right and center of the German army of invasion in France is withdrawing and the left wing is stoutly resisting the advance of the allies according to the best obtainable information The German crown prince appears to be holding bis own in the vicinity of Verdun Capture by the Germans of a fortified position southwest of Verdun and the battle between Paris and the River Marne are described in a report from German headquarters and also noted in earlier press dispatches The British statement revieiys the operations of British in France from September 4 to 10 but reveals nothing new in the reports Concerning the fighting in Russian Poland and Galicia the reports are conflicting It appears that the Austrians have met very serious reverses but contin ued struggles establish that they are continuing operar ticus in East Prussia According to advices from Petro grad the Russ army is before the capitol at Koenigsberg but official advices two days ago stated that the Russian were bombarding Koenigsberg According to Brit ish reports the initial success of General Hindenberg in East Prussia which had been admitted in Petrograd was followed by further German triiQUiphs to the south of Kioenigsburg The armies of General Von Hausen and the Prince of Wurtemberg which constituted the center seem to be headed toward Rethel Meizeres though part of this force is reported as still resisting at the south end of the forest of Argonne It is reported that the armies of the crown prince the Prince of Bavaria and General Von Heeringen have been forced across the frontier and that the entire territory of French Lorraine has been liberated This dis position iof the German armies If confirmed makes anq other concentration in France as suggested by certain critics impossible It leaves Generals Von Kluck and Von Buelow hotly pursued by allies menaced by an enveloping movement on the left without hope of reinforcements ex cept perhaps German troops which occupy Belgium The latest news from Belgium however indi eates thereis no probability of the German troops there being able to give any assistance Paris Sept retreat of the armies of Generals Yon Kluck and Von Buelow continued at last accounts with considerably rapidity The only official comment during the night was that the allies are keeping in contact with the enemy and had crossed the River Aisne The whereabouts of the enemy were not revealed but it is evident that they do not intend to make a stand ion the line from Rheims to Soissons It is hardly Hkely it is thought here that they will halt their retreat before reaching Belgium They already have made twothirds of the distance from Provlns In the Department of Seine et Marne to the frontier The heavy rains of Saturday and Sunday are not likely to facilitate the movement of the famous 420 milimelre mortars that were to reduce Paris which require forty horses to draw them PRESIDENT WILSON WILL NOT ENDORSE FREIGHT Paris Sept is officially announced this after noon that the Germans are still retiring everywhere and are abandoning all positions which they erected to cover a possible retreat The official statement follows our left wing the enemy had prepared to the north of Aisne between Compsenge and Soissons a line of defense which it was forced to abandon Some de tachments which it had hold at Amiens now have retired upon Perrons and St Quentln tho center the Germans have taken up a defensive position behind Reims but were mi able to hold it In the Argonne region they turned back toward tho north beyond the forest of Beliioue and beyond Triasourt tho right wing tho retreating of
