ROTTERDAM. Sept 14. The corre
spondent of the Berliner Tageblatt with
the German headquarters In the field,
describing the f ortiflcations of Mau
beuge, recently taken by the Germain,
points to the fact that this was the first
fortress of its kind to be taken.
The fortress consisted of a chain of
forts and outworks. These latter were
composed of permanent trenches and
redoubts, access to which was difficult
owing: to the general use of barbed
wire entanglements. The artillery was
placed in deep epaulements, but was
mobile instead of stationary, as usually
is the case. During the attack on the
fortress an armored train on the line
nortn of the city was in action.
Heavy Artillery Is Effective.
Before Maubeuge surrendered seven
units among the outworks were taken
by the Germans. The lesson of this,
asserts the correspondent, is that the
(jerraan heavy artillery was able to
overcome what the French thought to
be impregnable positions.
In view of the German claims that
dum-dum ammunition was found in the
French fortress of Longwy, Colonel
Darche, commander of the French
troops there, who was permitted to re
tain his sword by the German Crown.
I'rince, has been deprived of that honor.
The German general staff announces
that the recent Ugures of French, Eng
lish and Russian prisoners of war. ex
clusive of the 40.000 French taken at
Lougwy and all others taken since that
dale, total now more than 260,000.
According to a journal of the alcohol,
the production of alcohol in Germany
has been cut down 40 per cent, and of
the remaining 60 per cent a large
amount must be converted into a prod
uct suitable as fuel for motors. This
was due, it is said, to the efforts of the
German government to convert the po
tato crop into food. & large part of
which in the past has been used in the
manufacture of alcohol.
The Prussian Minister of Agriculture
has announced that those wishing to
establish potato-drying plants could
get necessary capital from the German
government at 4 per cent, returnable
between 1U17 and 1924, together with
interest, provided the production was
begun immediately. The manufac
turers have formed a society for the
development of a dried potato produc
tion and consumption and are turning
ever to this society their entire out
put. Bakers everywhere have been in
structed to teach the population to use
potato meal as an ingredient for bread
Grain Harvest Is Short.
It is asserted that while the grain
harvest was not as plentiful as was
expected. It was unusually rich in al
bumen and the adoption of potato meal,
therefore, would be desirable in pro
portions of 10 per cent potato starch
una 20 per cent potato meal.
The German Minister of the Interior
has recommended that the requirement
in the German naturalization of for
eigners be limited to the utmost in fa
vor of foreigners offering their serv
ices as volunteers in the German army.
Speaking of the advance on the Ger
man wing in France, Major-General
Gatti, of the Italian army, says in the

LONDON, Sept. 26, 3:41 A. M. A dis

that the trouble between the Bavarians
and Prussians in Brussels has continued
and that all Bavarians in Belgium are

alleged to have been offered by the
Prussians to the Belgian Queen, who

LONDON", Sept. 17. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) Inability to
take prompt care of the sick and
wounded soldiers in the field is mani
festing itself to an alarming degree
in the rear of the French and English
An American official who was close
behind the allies for several days with
in 100 'miles of Paris said he found
200 soldiers in one emergency camp
who had been for two days without
food and water and had had no sur
gical attention, although some of them
were badly wounded and their wounds
were foul from neglect. In many other
places he found scores of wounded men
who had not been picked up by the
First Aid Is Lacking.
At Paris hospital facilities are ade
quate and good care is taken of the
injured there, but the "f lrst-atd,-to-the-
injured" work is not tnorougniy or
ganized and adequate provisions have
not been made for picking the injured
up promptly and affording them speedy
treatment and transportation to a oase
"The plain truth 1 about the present
situation is that Germans. French and
English alike are so engrossed with
the mighty task of making war that
they have no time nor strength left to
care for the sick and wounded," said
the American official. "Here is the
opportunity for the United States to
play the good Samaritan in a way
which will be thoroughly appreciated
by the entire world. Instead of send
ing a few surgeons and nurses to each
of the belligerent countries sufficient
funds might be subscribed in the
United States to enable the American
Bed Cross to send 20 surgeons and 100
nurses with . complete field hospital
equipment intoB"very one of the coun
tries where fighting is now going on.
Need Is Immediate.
"There is Imperative need for imme
diate help from neutrals. The bellig
erents cannot do justice to their sick
and wounded without the assistance of
outsiders. Until one gets Into the war
zone and sees the wounded it is im
possible to conceive of the magnitude
of this conflict.
"The Red Cross hospital ship sent by
the Americans will be of great use, but
trained surgeons and nurses to go into
the field are needed more than ships
or base hospitals. The surgeons and
doctors are needed immediately and
will be needed throughout the war.
Modern science has proven how vital
the Immediate treatment of all wounds
is. I saw men lying on battlefields in
France whose wounds were actually
rotting through neglect."

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. The Amer

to raise funds in the United States for

The message said:

FRENCHJSOLDIER IS TARGET
(Continued From First Page.)
after studying our map we decided we
could make better progress straight
ahead to a point where we could reach
Maubeuge, at which place we knew
fighting was in progress.
The road lay open and clear. After
three or four miles we arrived at a lit'
tie cluster of houses called Merben-ste
Marie, where we found a number of
trenches freshly built. A peasant told
us that a desperate fight had occurred

German Advance Engaged.
When the German advance struck
them on Sunday a hot fight resulted
and more than 100 were killed and
wounded. Two English soldiers were
buried near a farmhouse and two near
a railway station.
The Germans put some wounded in
a farmhouse which had been partly
wrecked by English shells.
The town, of Maubeuge is only 12
miles away, but the forts defending it
are much nearer. We debated the mat
ter of proceeding on to Maubeuge after
a farmer had told us that the German
troops had all passed to the eastward
toward Beaumont, where, he said, the
French and English were massed
There was danger of getting outside
the lines, or between them, if we con
tinued straight ahead It became a
question of going on toward Maubeuge,
where we. knew fighting to be in prog
ress, or of going toward Beaumont,
where the great battle might occur.
Man's Throat Cat In Hamw,
We decided to go on ahead toward
Maubeuge. In an hour we reached the
outskirts of the town of Merbes-le-Chateau,
where we found a group of
citizens disconsolately standing near
some houses that had been destroyed.
The houses were still smoking. There
were evidences of a severe rifle fire.
The scene was a sad one. A lot of
furniture had been carried out and was
on the sidewalk. A half dozen people,
sorrowful but eager to talk, told us of
the fight. They said that a man in the
first house had his throat cut by the
Germans, and we were taken into 'the
smoking ruins to a spot where blood
was on the floor. Down in the cellar
was a table with food on it, wnere
people had probably taken refuge.
The neighbors say the Germans en
tered the house and killed the man. It
was the first evidence of an atrocity
that we had seen, and we investigated
it in an effort to learn the truth. From
one source we heard that the citizen
was deliberately murdered; from an
other that he had been found in the
house studying the German troops with
a pair pi field glasses, and from still
another that English soldiers had been
firing from the house at the German
skirmishers, and that the latter bad re
taliated on the citizen in whose house
the English had taken a protected posi

The bill was under discussion in the

bill to the ways and means committee,

due to the Democratic tariff rather
than to the war and as a novel

more lives than wars.

wrought a blunder so colossal that no

a battle line that would take a pedes
trian a fortnight to cover, there came
to London today nothing to indicate
that either of the vast armies whose
millions, like moles, are conducting
their operations virtually underground,
had yielded at any important point.
It has been said that a new battla
was developing on the allies' left wing,
but. so far as London is concerned, this
as yet lacks official confirmation.
There were also reports that the Ger
mans have made gigantic preparations
to renew tho siege of Verdun.
- The heaviest siege artillery, accord

ported by the Germans from Metz and
they are sacrificing thousands of lives
in their endeavors to place these mon

east of Verdun is said in London to be
