Battle Seems to Have Been

PEKING Tuesday. Sept. 29, 1:05 A. M.
The Chinese government has received
an official telegram from vVei-Hsien
statins' that 300 Japanese cavalrymen
have started westward ainij the rail
way. The Chinese. It is said, believe the
Japanese intend to capture all the rail
way stations on the line, including- that
of Tsi-Nan, the western terminus.
The Japanese legation says that the
legation has not been informed from
Tokio of the reason for taking over
the railway.
Gift Brought to Japanese.
The correspondent at Wei-Hsien
eends the following" under date of Sep
tember 28:
"The Japanese have gone to the west
along the railway, leaving 30 guards
on the Wei-Hsien station. The city is
crowded with Chinese soldiers, who are
Quartered in homes, causing terror to
the families. The gentry have sent
numerous presents to the Japanese,
fearing forced levies. The discipline In
both armies here is good."
The levies referred to by the corre
spondent are probably not monetary,
but in the nature of provisions.
PEKIN, China. Sept. 28 The Jap
anese legation announces that Jap

day and Sunday, occupied a position

Germans Retire to Defenses,
A German report, undated, but evi

only from their outpost positions, fall

An earlier dispatch from Tokio said
the Japanese had had a successful en
gagement with the Germans on the
outskirts of Tsing-Tau.
A German dispatch received here
from Tsinai:, capital of Shan-Tung
province, which probably came from
Tsing-Tau, in the Kiau-Chau territory,
by wireless telegraphy, conforms close
ly to the report given out at the Jap
anese legation. The German dispatch
relates that the German outposts, after
several encounters with the enemy, re

The Germans themselves are amazed
by the proofs of their resources. A

of the streams of German troops pour

into Brussels, said:

had ceased to be a working part of It,
they still did not derange it.
Hostile Mind Tempered.
I came to Germany anti-German. The
things I have seen and the wicked lies
about German "atrocities" in the Lon
don papers have tempered that hostile
state of mind. No man can see what the
Germans ar6 doing and how they are
doing it without being filled with a
great awe of the men and the method.
One -is staggered. One beholds all
around him the results of 40 years of
toil and thought and discipline. See
ing so much, one cannot withhold his
tribute. As you receive daily and hour
ly proof of their singleness of purpose,
their patience, their cheerfulness, their
;uiet acceptance of deprivations, their
unquestioning obliteration of self and
self-interest in support of the greater
cause, you cannot but say, "Well, what
ever be the merits of their cause, they
are earning their triumph."
The workings of the system inspire
one with respect. The demonstrations
of might behind the System overwhelm
the mind. Nobody can even faintly
comprehend the extent of those dem
onstrations who has not seen them, who
has net for hours watched four columns
rolling across the Belgian plains from
horizon line to horizon line.

Troops I'aaa Continuously.
For a month a German professor who
lives near tlie Consul engaged In the
characteristically German pastime of
estimating by minutes, hours, days and
weeks the number of troops that were
passing. He iigured it by compart
ments by cars and by trains. Septem
ber had not come when he said to the
Consul one, day:
"1 estimate that 2.000.000 troops have
passed. Here are my figures. You can
work it out for yourself. When one
bas seen what we have seen, the prob
lem is simple enough. One has merely
to keep the tally."
As for the Consul himself, he said:
"With me the thing is becoming an
obsession. I wake in the night to that
unceasing pant of engines and grinding
of wheels. I go down to breakfast,
and I see the trains creeping up the
grade. 1 come home to dinner, and
still it goes on. After dinner I sit
down to read, and ail the evening the
sound of the wheels and the engines
comes between me and the words on
the printed page. I believe if a man
allowed himself to brood on the thing
it would make him rather wild."
All Roads Are Occupied.
During the early days of August
there was not only the spectacle of
the passing of the troop trains on the
heights but the highway on the other
side of, the valley was packed with

Socialists Volunteer Services.
The people are an absolute unit. The
Socialists did not have to be won over,
they came over. A young Socialist,
ardent, clever, sincere, said to me last
evening at dinner:
"We see now that the Kaiser was
wise. 1 used to rail at militarism. I
do not now love militarism, but the
month has taught me that in the pres
ent state of civilization militarism must
be, if Germany is to survive. The fact
is before us and Socialism cannot gain

In the last four weeks I have been
closely observing affairs in four coun
tries and I have been with the men of
four armies English. French, Belgian
and German. That kind of experience
kills prejudice and takes the rancor out
of a man. I do now profoundly respect
the spirit of every man's attitude
toward the cause of his country. I
