LONDON, Sept. in the House of Ivordg today, Field Marshal Earl Kitchener revealed the strength of the British expeditionary force in France and described what he believed must be done to assure a successful issue of the conflict, A steady flow of reinforcements was required, he said.

There were already in France, the retary of war said, rather more than six divisions of British troops and two divisions of cavalry, which were being maintained at their strength. Further regular divisions and additional cavalry were being organized from units drawn from overseas garrisons, which were now being occupied hy territorials and volunteers, A division of territorials already had left for Egvjn. a brigade had gone to Malta and a garrison force to Gibraltar. Gen. French Lauded.

Referring to the two new armies the secretary said that new divisions were nmv being collet-ted at the training quarters. The third army was being formed on the new camping ground and the army was being created. Meant i I i a divisions were on their way.

Sept. great battle, even vital fur the countries concerned a those which have preceded it, is now in progress on a i extending from the region at No von, on the River uUe of Paris, to the River Meuse, of Verdun. The is somewhat shorter than was the case i the a of Marne, but this will result only in a mqie fiercely contested battle, i masses of troops i themselves ai each other, and a i piece of a i concen- tiated in the i effoi uf the armies a i lines. The Germans, who a fortnight ago had to abandon their first swift endeavor to destroy the a of France and Great Britain and capture Paris, have now fortified themselves the mountains north of the Hiver Aisne, through the plains of Champagne and in the Argonne mountains through which the Meuse flows.

French Press On. They are in stronger positions than they were for the battle of the Marne and have been strongly reinforced with fresh troops from the north and east. They have attempted some counter-attacks against the allied troops which, flushed with victory, have been trying to prevent them from i i themselves. According to English and French official reports, these attacks have been repulsed and the Germans compelled to give way at certain points, but the German general staff claims just the opposite result. It is certain, however, a the hilly of the Aisne offers good ground for such tactics.

Jt would appear that these western wings of the two armies, the a right and the allies' left, are again to bear a heavy part in the fighting. Upon the armies of Gen. Von Kluck and Gen. Von Buelow depend the safety of the rest of the German Army, should retreat be decided upon or forced upon them. Besides holding the front, they have to be prepared to withstand a attempt on the part of the allies to outflank them.

Germans Hold Railways. These German forces hold a position from a point near Noyon on the Oise, along the district north of the Aisne to the junction of the latter river with Sulppes. Behind them are splendid i of railway i in all directions, which a i i a the movement of troops from St. i Guise and Mezieres In this respect, therefore, they are well placed.

In fact, nearly the whole nf Northwest Prance la now open to the allies, the Germans having withdrawn most of their scattered troops eastward toward the Oise. Field Maishal Kitchener, secretary of state for war, speaking with full knowledge of the situation at the front, declared: "The tide has now turned." So that he, a telling the public that the war will be a long one, appears to be hopeful of the outcome. Indians Going to Front. The little British A that has fought so long and so hard is looking forward to support from the I i a troops, which should soon be at the side of the Englishmen, if not for the present battle, then for the one whicli must soon follow, no a it goes. The French troops, who also occupy a.

a a center of occupation at Scinsons engineers havi-ng closely followed the army and repaired the railways--are being reinforced, and on the whole, both as to positions and strength of forces, the opposing armies appear evenly matched except for the advantage of the allies in a i an army to threaten Von Kiuck's flank. The situation along the rest of the line is much the same. In the center between Rheims the Argonne, the Germans continue to fortify themselves, i between Argonne and the Meuse they are entrenching themselves at Montfa ucon. French Not Overconfident. The French officials warn the public a as the Germans occupy positions prepared for defense and are supported by heavy artillery, any progress must be slow.
