The Belgian 'troops have Just gained
an important success at Oortenberg, be
tween Louvain and Brussels, cutting up
a German corps and taking several
prisoners. The line toward Liege has
been occupied by the Belgians."
It Is asserted that after the recent
battle at Termonde the Belgians burled
1239 Germans. The enemy suffered
greatly at the hands of the .Belgian ar
tillery. Cannonading was heard to
day in the direction of Courtrai and
Germans are said to have been seen
laying mines under Belgian roads
which the allies may take wmie ioiiow
Jng the retreating German forces.
Victory Regarded an Important.
The Belgian victor at Oortenberg is
regarded as especially important, as the
German army occupying Belgium hat
been cut in two sections as a result of
it. The victory was due in great part
to artillery of heavy caliber, which was
used for the first time there.
The Belgian legation announced to
day that the Belgians had again taken
the offensive, which was being pushed
satisfactorily. An extended sortie was
made on September 10 and the Ger
mans everywhere were forced to re
tire. Malines and Aerschot were re
taken. The Belgian legation said Bel
gians had destroyed the railway be
tween Louvain and Tirlemont thus cut
ting off the German communications be
tween Brussels and Liege.

"The main portion of the enemy's
right wing was attacked frontally by
the British army, which had been trans
ferred from the north to the east of
Paris, and by a French corp advancing
alongside it on a line between Crecy,
Couloummiers and Sezanne.
"The combined operations have, up
to the present, been completely success

"The main body of the enemy's right

RESULT NOT YET DECISIVE
British Admit German Forces May

LONDON', Sept. 12. News of a de
cisive character from east of Vitry-le-Francois,
where the army of Saxony
and parts of the armies commanded
by the Prince of Wurtemberg and Gen
eral von Buelow are fiercely striving
to break through the French right and
center, still hangs fire and the anxiety
of both forces grows keener as it is
recognized that the result of the bat
tle In this quarter is likely to have a
decisive effect on the whole lines.
Should the Germans smash through
the center off the French line in this
district, they would turn the line of
French frontier forts and seriously en
danger the rear of General Castleman's
Sixth army corps, already engaged up
to the hilt with a corresponding host
of Germans before Nancy.
It is fully realized here that the driv

right center in no way is conclusive,
and that as the Franco-British forces
rallied after their long retreat, so may
the Germans turn and retrieve their

of a great battle and that the battle
itself is only the first stage of a titanic
struggle between the nations, which will

EIFFEL TOWER FORTIFIED
Lawyer, Back From Europe With
4000 Other Refugees, Tells of
Firing on German Aeroplane
as It Circles Over Gay Paree.
NEW YORK, Sept. 12. Arrivals and
sailings of trans-Atlantic steamships
today were almost as frequent as
though war were not In progress In
Europe, with cruisers of belligerent na
tions patrolling the lanes of sea traf
Nearly 4000 passengers, a majority of
them American refuges, reached here
from British, French and Italian ports
on four steamships.
Among the passengers on the France
from Havre was Frederic R. Coudert,
a lawyer of international reputation.
In Paris Mr. Coudert registered his
automobile at the American Embassy,
flew the American flag on his ma
chine and started on a tour through
districts where fighting was in prog
ress. He was present at the battle of
French Enthanlsjim Tremendous.
"We saw a battery going into ac
tion, and you cannot imagine the en
thusiasm of those Frenchmen, who
seemed to be going- to certain death,"
Mr. Coudert said. "They had been
marching three days. They had fought
engagement after engagement."
Mr. Coudert said that on the way
to Amiens he saw 15,000 French-
Arfican troops, consisting of Turcos,
Moroccans and Senegalese, on their
way to fight the Germans.
"1 saw four French soldiers walking
toward me." he added. "They had a
German prisoner. He proved to be an
aeroplane pilot, wbo had just been
shot out of his machine by a sharp
shooter. He was badly wounded and
they were taking him to a hospital.
Russell H. Landale, a lawyer, an
other of the France's passengers, told
of bomb-dropping In Paris. With five
United States Army officers he was
dining in a cafe on August 28, when
the crackling of rifle fire was heard.
They went out into the street. .
All Paris Fires at Monoplane.
"There we saw the flashes of guns,
and looking 'upward, a monoplane cir
cling about 3000 feet over the city.
It was going rapidly and It seemea
to me that everybody in Paris was
taking a shot at it. The Eiffel Tower
is a fortress armed with rapid-fire
guns, artd these guns now began to
shoot like a Fourth of July celebra
tion. "It was just growing dusk and in
the dim light we saw a small object
drop from the aeroplane Just above
the Eiffel Tower. -Following its
flight, we expected a fearful explosion,
but nothing occurred, the shell failing
to explode. At that moment two
French aeroplanes rose from tli city
and started straight for the invader,
who was pursued by the two French
planes until out of our sight."

Voyage Will Walt on Farther
Tests With New Crew.
NEW YORK. Sept. 12. The Red
Cross, which carries American sur
geons and nurses to Europe's battle
fields, probably will not begin her
trans-Atlantic voyage until Monday.
Apparently she had started on her de
layed voyage late today, bpt after
passing quarantine she turned about
and took anchorage in Gravesend Bay.
There she is expected to remain for
another 36 hours at least.
Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the
Navy, bade the Red Cross farewell In
person. He raised the Stars and
Stripes at the relief ship's stern and
persons on shore believed when they
saw her steaming down the Hudson to
ward the harbor that she was off for
Europe at last.
Recent delays were due to British
and French official protests that the
Red Cross own crew contained Ger
mans. These men were replaced with
American citizens and it is believed the
purpose of the. Red Cross in waiting
until Monday before departing la to
enable her new crew to familiarize
themselves with the ship. It was ex
plained also that the anchors were in
need of testing.
