Summary of Latest War News: Conflicting news dispatches and vague official statements leave the fortunes of the immense armies struggling before Paris today a matter of conjecture.
All accounts agreed, however, that the moment is approaching swiftly when the French capital must have resort ed to its own defenses. Despite occasional temporary successes of the allies, their line appears to be slowly giving ground before the German advance. The Germans, in a semi-circle, seem to have reached points east and west of Paris, that their left wing is touching Lafere Sous Jouarre in the department of Seine et Marne.
The exact position of the German right wing is not revealed, but so far as known it has not succeeded in getting around the allies' left, formed by British troops.
A Rome dispatch says that five German army corps have arrived at the Vistula River to support the defense against the Russian invaders of East Prussia. The Russian general staff claims that its victorious army in Galicia is sweeping the Austrians before it.
Further fighting is reported at Termonde, sixteen miles east of Ghent, suggesting that the Belgian forces from Antwerp have again entered the fray.
There is no additional news regarding the Russians as having been landed at Ostend from British transports.
