GERMANS PASS PARIS.
London, September 6. The Germans new movement through La Ferte Sous, Jouarre and Rheiras is interpreted as an attempt to bteak tbe Allies line between Paris and Epernay, and, perhaps, also be tween Rheims and Verdun, the Ger man strategists realising tbe danger of their attempting to besiege Paris with the Allies army in the field still unbroken.
The Press Bureau states tbe First German army is reported to be between La Ferte Sous-Jouarre and Eosesevofforfc, the Second is advancing east of Chateau Thierry, and the Fourth is marching southwards be tween Buippes and Villesurtoube.
The British have established --a personal ascendency over the Germans, who are conscious tbat the result will not be doubtful if the numbers are even. The British rifle fire devastated every column of attack, and their superior training and intelli gence enable the British to cope with vast numbers. GENERAL FRENCHS REPORT
