3 OCTOBER 1914, Page 9

A telegram from Amsterdam, dated October let, published in Friday's

Times, says that the outlying forts are still entirely undamaged. The report that two of them were silenced was due, it seems, to the fact that they had reserved their fire. According to an Antwerp telegram to the Daily Mail, also dated October 1st, a Belgian sortie resulted in the capture of several guns and great German losses. The same telegram reports that in attacking the gap between two forts the Germans found that the barbed-wire entanglements had been heavily charged with electricity, and those who attempted to pass them were electrocuted.
