LONDON. Nov. 1. How the British

Kive of September 25. is the chief dis
closure of popular interest in a long
orriclal dispatch from Field Marshal
Sir John French to Earl Kitchener.
which is published tonight under date
of General Headquarters in France,
The dispatch is mainly a technical
military revue of the inception, the
larryins out and the aftermath of
the fighting around La Bassee, Loos
and Hulluch. Nevertheless It brings to
the British public for the first time
a full realization of the intensity with
which the Germans launched their
Attacks Almost Continuous.
These, General French says, were al
most continuous from the day of the
big British attack up to and including
October 8. Then, the field marshal
writes, the Germans delivered an attack
with some 28 battalions in the front
line and with larger forces in support,
which was preceded by a very heavy
bombardment in all parts of the Ger
"At all points of the line except two
the Germans were repulsed with tre
mendous loss and it is computed on
reliable authority they left some 8000
or 9000 dead in front of the British
and French trenches," General French
Healing with the British losses in the
action of September 25, the field mar
"I deeply regret the heavy casualties
incurred in this battle, but, in view of
the great strength of the position, the
stubborn defense of the enemy and the
powerful artillery with which he was
supported. I don't think they were ex
cessive. 1 am happy to be able to add
that the proportion of slightly wounded
was relatively large, indeed."
British Are Reinforced.
Field Marshal French here refers
.to the improvement in the artillery and
the arrival of British reinforcements,
"Since my last dispatch, the army has
received strong reinforcements and
every reinforcement has iad its quota
of field .artillery. In addition, numer
ous heavy guns and howitzers have
been added to the strength of the
heavy artillery. The arrival of these.
reinforcements in the field tested the
capacity of the artillery -as a whole to
expand and meet the requirements of
"Our enemy may have hoped, and
not, perhaps, wtthout reason, that it
would be impossible for us, starting
from such small beginnings, to build
up an efficient artillery to provide for
a very large expansion of the army.
If he entertained such hopes, he now
has good reason to know that they
have not been Justified by results.
ew Artillery Exceeds Hopes.
"The efficiency of the new artillery
and new armies exceeded all expecta
tions, and during the period under re
view, excellent services have been ren
dered by the territorial artillery. The
repulse of the enemy attack on Octo
ber 8 in the neighborhood of Loos and
Hulluch with such heavy losses shows
the capacity of the artillery to con
centrate its Are promptly and effect
ively at a moment's notice."
or the use by the British forces of
gas. Field Marshal French says the
repeated use of gas by the Germans
compelled him to resort to a similar
"A detachment was organized for
this purpose and took part in the oper
ations, commencing September 20, for
the first time." says the Field Marshal.
Gas Attack Is Successful.
"Although the enemy was known to
have been prepared for such reprisals,
our gas attack met with marked suc
cess, producing a demoralizing offect
in some of the opposing units, of which
ample evidence was forthcoming in
captured trenches. The men undertak
ing thi work carried out their un
familiar duties with conspicuous gal
lantry and coolness, and are confident
of their ability to more than hold their
own should the enemy again resort to
this method of warfare."
In the concluding paragraph, Fieul
Marshal French pays tribute to the oo-
operation of the French forces with
the British and refers to the arrival
in the field from Canada of a new
division, which, he says. Is composeil
of excellent material.
"This division will, I am convinced,
ncquit itself, as well as the first Cana
dian division always has done," the
Field Marshal says.

tions of the powers, but he pointed
out that the question Was purely in-
fernal and ah the. movement for the
Fe-esta-biiahmentof- the- monarchy was
the outcome of the popular sentiment,
it was not one which the Chinese gov
ernment could suspend or delay or ex

tion of disorders to follow a change in
government, that as to internal order
he could give a formal guarantee for
its preservation during the change,
based on reports received in Pekin
from all the high Chinese provincial
authorities, in all instances without
exception, that "untoward events were
anticipated as the result of change

of government-" ,
Germans Are Accused.
Diplomatic representatives of the
allied powers here openly ascribe to
German activities the rapid develop
ment of the monarchical government
movement in China on the theory that
the disorders likely to follow in China
will require Japanese intervention and
consequently suspend Japan's supply of
arms and munitions to the Russians.
It is pointed out, however, that an
other strong and characteristically
oriental factor is involved. This i
said to be the absolute necessity of the
Chinese mind for spiritual aid in ma
terial development. For centuries past;
it has been the custom of the Chinese
Emperor to repair annually to a special
temple dedicated for that purpose in
Pekin and offer prayers to the three
gods of heaven, agriculture and mining.
to prosper Chinese husbandry and busi
ness. The Chinese coolie element have
implicit confidence in the efficacy of
these prayers. Agitators in favor of
the monarchy have spread broadcast
the conviction that a mere person, no
matter how able and beloved, never
could lift his voice to the god heads.

Hooper was arrested in a raid and

to be a secret agent of the German
government. Ex-Governor McGovern

office that he was the son of a prom

by the prosecutor's office.
The man was set free without the
police being informed that he was

at once to hunt for him. believing him
to be wanted elsewhere.
