An official statement written by a staff officer who ,1ms been on the scone of operations, and which Ig auth- orized by the British War Office, gives the details of the actions, closing with the crossing of the Aisne, but only the most meagre communications have 'been issued concerning the fighting for the last few days. Roughly speaking, line of the ad- vance of the Ulieb is threaded BIX rivers, four of whichr have already- been crossed.. The: crossing-of.. the Maine marking the assumption of the aggreESiv o Allies, was purelj a rear guard action, in which General Von.Kluck cleverly kept the German right from, being outflanked So far as the British pas- sage of the Ourcq was not contested. .The Vesle River was only lightly de fended by the Germans, while, is well Known, the resistance of the Germans at th'e Aisn'e was and still .is of the most stubborn, character on.) both tie French and British fronts THE ALLIES' JOB IS A TOUGH ONE If the Allies .hold the ground across the Aisne, which ther gained despite the heavy artillery fire from concealed. German batteries in the heights above th'e river, two more rivers, the 4Jlette and the Oise remain to be crossed The country between, the Aisne and the Alletts is ideal lor defensive nur- poses and if the German army holds the Aisne heights for a few davs, de- fensive works can. be constructed an along the rivers which may delay the Addles advance on German territory for a long time On the other hand, if the Germans resume the offensive the country now occupied bj them affords an elegant operating It is clear from reports coming in ftoni the Allies that the victory in the battle oi the Marae, and tie assump- tion-ot the, offensive had a tremen- dous moral effect on the Franco-Bri- tish armies BATTLt BETWEEN OISE'AND MEUSE Berlin Sept 18 Via London, 12 25 The following official statement was made at the headquarters of the General Staff the evening of Sept 17 No decision yet haa resulted in the i battle between the Oise aud' the Mouse but certain signs indicate that the powi r uf rc0 stance ot the enemy is relaxing. "The endeavor of the French troops to break through the German right wing collapsed without any great el fort 'on 'the part of our troops.
