New Castle News (Newspaper) - October 10, 1914, New Castle, Pennsylvania i ._._________ France Is NowDoomed With Belgium Crushed Ger- mans Press on to Complete Work of Ruin. PARIS Oct. 10. Information to the headquarters of Gen. Gallieni, military governor ot Paris, is to the effect that the Germans are again striving against the French right on the Meusc. The highest confidence prevails, however, that ,the French not only hold their own, hut will eventually oust the Germans from their position near St. Miluel and drive them hack toward Luxemburg. -Although the German center has been weakened by the removal of troops to support Gen. Alexander Van Kluck the positions held by the in- vaders at this time are so strong that the French have not dared to try. to take them by storm.. Paris Relieved. Paris now feels safe. The imme- diate object of the German army. according to all the signs, is to oc- cupy the territory adjoining the channel. The sumup: The first blow against Prance having failed the second blow must be aimed at Eng- land. Belgium, has been crushed. The new line-up of opposing forces means that northeastern France is probably destined to suffer desoation ..similar to that already visited on Belgium All of France's rich cities In the northeast have doubtless been marked for certain ruin. The French general staff is still confident of success, but it is recog- 'ni7.ed that there can be no decisive victory while, the masses engaged are enormous. It is possible to hope for defeat of the enemy s plan onlj If there can he a constant stream of reinforcements. When the German retirement be- gan- the French general staff hoped to push the invaders from France. When the retirement was checked and the French flanking movement in the north looked as though' It would be a complete success; some of the more optimistic hoped "ml the, French could get into the rear of the German army of invasion, cut its line of communications and surround it entirely. It was soon seen howeve, that such a campaign was beyond the cower of the allies because of the gi- gantic size of the German army and the seemingly endless resources of the German general staff. The following description of figlit- ing around Lille (up to Thursday noon) has just been received here from an English correspondent. the French firing over Lens at the German position near the village ot Loison wrought immense destruction and the German advance from the northeast received a decided ci'eel-- The Germans were compelled to retire eight miles, according to latest information.

French infantry occupying the city of Lille and its suburbs. On Monday these attacks were finally repulsed. On Tuesday a fight occurred between the French and a heavy German force stretched along the whole eastern, northern and northwestern suburbs of Lille. The battle raged all day and well into Wednesday, the French guns causing terrible havoc. The Ger- man infantry fire was not effective, but feeble and scattering. The battle ended in a victory for tlm French forces and the German army occupy- ing the-line of Turcoing-Armentleres, which had been intended to cover the right flank of the main body, ad- vancing on Lille and Arms, was driv- en back 13 miles. On Thursday tho Germans gradually retired east and north. It is believed that the Germans have been compelled to fall back all around Lille, owing to the vigor of the French attacks and the accuracy of the light artillery of the French. The city of Lille itself is said to be only slightly damaged, notwithstand- ing the hostilities which have been raging around there.

PARIS, Oct. 10.--German troops are making heavy attacks upon the allies north and northwest of Lille, but the situation is satisfactory as far as the allies are concerned, according to the official French etaleinent issued at 3 o'clock this afternoon. II says that the French troops have gained some ad- vantage north of the Oise and have also made progress about St. Mihiel at the eastern end of the battle front The oficial statement also announces that Antwerp was taken Friday. Tho offiical communication follows in full: "Th battle continues under satisfac- tory conditions. Our entire battle front has been maintained despite violent attacks by the enemy at several points. On our left wing in the region com- prised between La Bassee, Armcn- lieres and Cassel (27 miles northwest of Lille and 18 miles from the coast of the English channel. "The engagements between tho op- posing cavalry have been of an intri- cate nature, because of the nature of the land formation. "At the north of the Oise our troops have gained some real advantages at several parts of their scene of action. "In the region of St. Mihiel we have made evident advance. in that region against the army of the north, under French General D'Amade. It is presumed that fighting is still in progress further to the north on Belgian soil. It is officially an- nounced that the cavalry engagement on tho Belgian frontier, between mounted troops of four nations, Eng- land and France on one side, and Germany and Austria on the .other, is continuing violently. The German movement which had for its objec- tive the cutting of railroads at Amiens in order to cripple the French and English forces in the ex- treme northern part of France, seems to have been checked. The forces that are locked In a battle grip around Arras are swaying backward and forward in quick movements.

"It is easy to understand the im- portance of keeping secret as long as possible the recent movement of the Russian troops on the eve of great events.

But Antwerp, even if converted into a first class fortress, will bring little advantage, for its trade will now die away v to nothing and the Scheldt cannot be used for naval purposes unless the neutrality of the Netherlands is vio- ted.
