The War Today At a Glance Save for the brief official announce-! m'ent from Paris saying "the retire-; mcrtt of Belgian troops toward An- twerp Is rumored, but not little n.sws came today from the war front. Complete silence is maintained as to the fortunes of the war in the big fipht understood to be in progress somewhere along a line extending through Belgium and1 Luxemburg. Dispatches give evidence of the pre- sence of masses of German troops pushing thofr way to the front be- hind an impenetrable fire of the cav-i whose dashes in, search of in- formation as to the of the allied troops have resulted in sharp clashes and h-eavy casualties. The commanders of the allied forces of French, British and Belgians will not permit anything about posi- tions to become public, and since the official note made known the pres- ence of a large British expeditionary force on the Continent, its movements have been hidden from th.s outside world: At Brussels, it is said, there has been :no change since yesterday in the position, then reported to .be excellent for the allies. The fate of the Liege I forts is not definitely known. German dispatches describe; them as in the hands of .the German army since the arrival cf heavy .artillery, while Bel- gian military authorities assert that they are still intact and holding out bravely. In Alsace-Lorraine ths French turn- Ing movement through southern Al- sace appears, from French reports, to be favorably for tlie Frerich, and this seenis io receiv-s con- firmation in a dispatch sent out by the Wolff bureau, the German official news agency, saying that two batter- ies of ouns were taken by tha French, who .continued their march forward. These reports, however, refer to the preliminary meetings of opposing bod- ids of troops, leading up to the great battle, which may have already begun. Even leading Frenchmen take occa- sion to point out to their countrymen that the decisive conflict is yet to come, and that too much reliance must not be placed on repeats of demoraliza- tion among the German troops. It is reported thatch encounter has occurred in the-North Sea, but this'is; without ''official confirmation. On the Russo-Gcrman-Austrlan fron- j tl-sr fights of small importance are re- corded. Gar-man troops today occupied Mlawa, In Russian close to j the German frontier, and, Russian re- ports, relate, repulsed witn heavy casualties -ofnAustrlan troops, who had, attacked in the Russian province of A -strong force of German troops is said to have attacked' Eydtkuhnen, a German town on the -Russian frontier, which, was occupied rby .the Russians soon'after the outbreak of A French official'not; confirms re- ports-in at Shabatz over an Austrian force'of 80.000 men. The Austrlans are said'to have lost 3000 killed and 5COO injured.' A Montenegrin army Is reported within two hours' march of the forti- fied' Austrian seaport of Ragusa, in baimatla. Th-s Montenegrins had al- ready captured a number of towns in the vicinity. Two large Austrian steamers were captured today by the French. accepted because of possible Interna- tional complications. The former French Minister of Fi- nance Paul Dbumer, who has returned from the front in Belgium, says that three Zeppelins been destroyed by gun fire, and one wrecked by drop- Ding into the forest. In order to set at rest reports of casualties to the British army, the of- ficiai bureau declares that there have neen no casualties as yet. A Rome dispatch gives a report from Vienna that the Austrian cruiser Ze-sna has been sunk. Miss Belli FairficM is in Calgary visiting Miss Christiiie Nelson, Gar- den Crescent.

THE WAR -OVERNIGHT From the war zone come only reports of the activities of "the vast German and allied armies opposing j.e'aoh other. The French officially report that the Germans have abandoned Sarre- bourg. The Liege forts are still said to be Intact, and a Brussels dispatch says that the German movement towards the Belgian centre to have been checked. The French troops are in contact with the Germane, but there Is no im- portant engagement to report, says an official announcement; by; the French Embassy in London. A British expeditionary force, num- bering more than has made a safe landing at French, and Belgian ports, and is doubtless well on its way to form a junction with its allies. A significant statement is issued hy the British official press bureau, to the effect that desultory fighting has oc- curred between the British patrolling squadrons and flotillas and German reconnoitering cruisers. "Certain liveliness Is apparent jn Jhe southern area of the North the statement adds.v There rumors "of a naval en- gagement about one hundred-miles off Harwich, in the North Sea. Isva stirring message-.to the troops, King George says: i'-Duty your watchword, and I know your duty will be nobly done." The French commander-in-chief, General Joffro personally reports French progrees in upper Alsace, and declares that the Fren6h troops have occupied all the region in Lorraine thirty-two miles inside German frontier. An.American corps has-been organ: Ized in Paris, and American aviators have offered the government thctr aeroplanes.
