As a result of offensive tactics on
the part of the allies the German
force's Invading France are reported
to have been compelled to retrent
along 'he bnttle line running eastward '
one mile from the suburbs of Paris.
Three reasons nccount for the sud
den check of the Germans. First.
their right wing, under General Von
KlttOk, seems to have moved so rap
Idly as to have lost touch with the rest
of the German army; second, the
French were able lo utilize a large
part Of the I'arls gnrrlson as a field
force, thus giving them a numerical
superiority; third, the difficult nature
of the ground wits a handicap to the
QsjIBIgUI hecntiHO of their unfamiliar
it y with It.
The mnln portion of the Germans'
right wing wns attneked frontally by
the llrltlsh army, which had been
transferred from the north to the east
of Tails, and by a French corps ad
vancing alongside It on a line be
tween Crecy, Couloummlers and 8e
tanne. The combined operations were a
complete success. The German flank
was forced buck with heavy losses to
the Itlver Otircq, where It made a
strong offensive movement, despite
revere counter attacks. Here the com
bined French and llrltlsh armies, aid
ed by the Paris defense army, preyed
too strong for the enemy. The right
wing was finally driven back upon the
line of the Morln river and then push
ed back across both. The main body
of the right wing was In grave danger
because of the complete defeat of the
covering force.
While the German right wing baa
been driven buck and thrown into .lis
order, the French armies to the east
heavily engaged the German center,
which had pushed forward to VI try le
Francois and finally scored a notable
success On the eleventh the Oer
mans finally showed signs of giving
way anil they were compelled to a ban

French Officials File Objection
With the Powers.
These Bullets Are Cylindrical and Con
ical With Split Ends Their Hollow Expand on Impact, Causing
Terrible Wounde The Hsgue Con
ference Forbade Use.
Paris. Of grent Interest to military
students Is the charge made by the
French government that the Germans
used on one of the first days of the
wnr dumdum bullets. Tbe charge was
never substantiated. A sample of tbe
bullets found In French dead bave
been submitted to the war office.
Tbe dumdum bullet Is made wltb a
hollow nose which causes the metal to
expand on Impact, thus creating an
ugly wound. I'bi-y were first tnatle
In the town of Dumdum, In British In
dia. Tbe bullets were first used In the In
dian frontier fighting by the British
owing to the failure of the usual type
of bullets to stop the rushes of the
fanatical tribesmen.
At the second Hague conference all
the powers except Great Britain and
the United stat.-s agreed to stop the
use of tbls kind of bullet.
Tbe charge was made, however, by
Itnllim officers In the war with tbe
Turks In Tripoli that the enemy was
using the dumdum bulleta. From tbe
condition of the wounded the doctoni
declared that such was tbe case. Tbe
powers were notified and promised to
draw tbe attention of tbe Ottoman
government to the violation.
Later, In the Itnlknn war. tbe Turks
got a dose of their own medicine from
the Montenegrins. On Oct 21, 1012.
the Turks said that the foe was using
the .i..s. i n.ed bullets at Tustl and
Kent inn Again the powers made rep
resctitatlon to the Montenegrins.
Accusntlous were made In the Boer
war that the llrltlsh were using the
dumdums. This was never proved.
In the Itussia Japan war the Jnirn
first accused the Itusslaus of using
dumdums, and some were snbl to have
been found at l.lnoyiing The Russian
officers denied thnt the bullets came
from their side when the powers took
