Berlin, via London, Sept. 30, 4 report given out at army headquarters says: "There has been heavy fighting on our right wing in France, but nothing decisive. The centre is quiet. The French advance in the vicinity of Verdun and Toul has been repulsed." VIA WAoHlWJTON Washington, D.C., Sept. ficial dispatches received by the French Embassy today duplicated In part last night's official state- ment of the Bordeaux war office, and aave no confirmation of the reported defeat of the German right wing.

Gc.jstcne, in command of the Dan- ish steamer United States, in to- day from Chrlstiansar.d, said that he had picked up a wireless in the North Sea, containing the-inform- atio'n that 30 British warships were on their way through the Cattegat to help the Russian fleet in the Baltic Sea. frLT COLLIERIES LIFTING TONS PER DAY BREAK RECORD-CHINOOK BUSY TOO Belgian Garrison Made Sorties t' and Germans Losses :ll records .for the Gait Collieries than during the 25 days been during thc past or ten !a t December .mghl which time M I l of 2000 tons of coal halt lh, one sluft.of lllp Collieries across the m hai 'et BRITISH ARMY IN FRANCE! "On our right wing in France no decisive battles have occurred. Between the Oise and the Meuse it is gsneraily quiet. The army operating against the forts on the Meuse was repulsed.

WAR OF NATIONS London, Sept. 30, 2.58 ths first time in this war of nine .nations, there is some concordance in the drift of the representatives of the three armies holding posi- tions In France, which is stMl the theatre where the most Important operations are in progress, it is, however, to he noted that the re- sult on one side or the other is largely negative. "THe French advances from Verdun and Tou) have been re- is the German report of yesterday's .fighting on the east- ern end of ths line, and the com- municatln aurees that the troops have made slight progress in the fJeJd. VON KLUCK ABOUT DONE At the other end of the 250-mile line, Allies are holding their is the report from the Bri- tish headquarters, and the Berlin announcement seems to admit this cfaJm by announcing that the bat- ties of thla end have been "Inde- cisive." Confirmation of a news agency story that the German right wing has been broken and was in flight, is still lacking. Commentators snow much opti- mism on this report, although they consider the breaking of the Ger- man right would be ony a natural result of the great turning move- ment, the present status of which is pictured in the French official report of yesterday. This shows that the Allies have pushed back the invaders in this region until the German right wing is virtually at right angles with the rest of the line. The fact that the German army headquarters admit their great ef- forts to throw back the pressure of the Allies have proved indecis- ive, is regarded in England as significant.
