1914 No RIGHT WING OF INVADERS ON BANKS OF RIVER GRAND MORIN COME INTO CONTACT WITH FORCCES OF ALLIES DEFENDING PARIS TODAY faming Movement To South v Takes Place Of Fans Attack AIAUBEUGE STILL HOLDING OUT AGAINST ASSAULTS AND BOMBARDMENTS BRITISH CRUISER PATHFINDER DE STROYED BY MINE IN NORTH SEA WITH PROBABLY A BIG LOSS OF LIFE COMMANDER AMONG WOUNDED EARLY REPORTS GIVE LITTLE REAL DATA CONCERNING FORTUNES OF GREAT BATTLE NOW UNDER WAY London Sept official reports from Russia slate that the Russian troops are gradually siuToiuuling Przemsyl which will soon either surrender or be taken by assault Prze mysl is a stiong fortress 50 miles west of Lemburg Its fall would mean the loss by the Austrians of the last stronghold in Galicia It would clear way to the advance of the Russians westward towards a junction ol their forces on the east Prus sian frontier London Sept German right wing on the banks of life River Grand Morin today came into contact with the allied armies defending the roads to Paris Reports say the Gentians have divided their forces into Tour armies and are making a turning movement to the south father than pushing Paiis The town of iiiaubeuge is still resisting the German assault It is reported that the light cruiser Pathfinder of the British been blown up by a mine in the North Sea Paymas ter Finch was killed and the commander Captain Francis Leake was wounded Six junior officers and two petty officers are missing London Sept belief is growing that the great de cisive battle is being fought at Verdun the strong foitress of France on the river near the French frontier If the fourth German army inarching southward cuts off the retreat the French eastern armies which recently have been hold ing the Germans in check between a fortified fort town t4 miles west of Nancy and Espinal also strongly fortified and near the Alsace frontier it might repeat the coup which in 1870 drove General Charles Denis Sautcr Bourbanki and his army of men into Switzerland Hopeful critics are speculating on the that the German swing around to the south means an effort on the parti if the invaders to make sure of their retreat through the Mouse iistrict but more likely it is a scheme to strike such a paralyz ing blow to the French army as to render the investment of Paris i safe operation The southerly movement of Germans may ef feel junction of the crown princes army and the army of Ba varia Avhieli has been held on the defensive in Lorraine Thus the Germans would advance from the east and north in a vast enveloping movement destined to crush the allies right wing by sheer weight of numbers just as the allies left was pushed haclc during the last fortnight These preliminary movements if showing nothing else at least prove thai the Ger mans realize that a siege of Paris even its occ ilion is quite worthless from a strategic the allies are free in fhe field Corroboration of the above mentioned theory is con tained in a dispatch from Berlin which describes a battle in the difficult country between Verdun and Rethel as the decid mg conflict as far as France is concerned This dispatch states opposing forces are almost equally divided hut that the French have the advantage fighting fnom a defensive position of their own cliioosing Another significant factor is the general understanding that Emperor William in pelson is inspecting the field of operations In this neighborhood Reports disagree as to the PIIUJMHICMS but all agree that he is in the vicinity of he FrancoOnnan border The conflict in this region must lave decisive rcsulfs Capture of the great Frenchfortresses vould be a tMYiblr blow to France while a repulse of the Ger man army would give the French a chance to assume the of fensive a course
