of Front,
London. May 7.-The Germans and
Auutrlaus are nutting forth effort?, tho
extent of which have never been ap
proached in the history of the war.
Throughout virtually the entire
length of the western front they are
engaged with the Russians. In the
west in addition to their attacks
around Ypres the Germana are on tho
offensive at many points, being at
tacked at other points by the French.
British and Belgians. In the Rus
sian Baltic provinces, heretofore un
touched by war, the Germans are at
tempting to advance. In western Gal
l?la they are attempting wiUi all their
tttrength to smash the Russian flank
and compel the Russians to abandon
the Carpathians passes, which they
gained at such a hekvy cost during
the winter. Tho Germans claim to
.have taken forty thousand Russian
prisoners since the offensive was un
dertaken last Saturday. The Aus
trians put the number at more than
fifty thousand and express tilt? be
lief that the whole Russian third
army will be destroyed.
Berlin. May 6.-Thc German offlulal
statement today declared tho? 'Ger
mane had forced the French troops
to evacuate their positions at A tl ly
Wood and had captured moro than
two thousaod Frenchmen;, The state
ment says the number of Frenchmen
killed were extreme!v largo.
London. May 8.-The ' Austro-Ger
mon offensive movement in western
Galleta has developed Into one of the
greatest. encounters or the European
war. Petrograd admits that the sit
uation Js serious for the Russisns but
' nays that the advance of tho Ger
mans and Austrians has been check
bd In late advices today.
Both Vienna and Berlin declare
that the Russians have begun a gen
eral retreat. The official statement
from Vienna, received late today
claims that the Austrian advance con
tinues on the entire front and that
Russian prisoners, numbering 50,000
have been taken.
The German invasion of tho Rus
sian Baltic provinces is said by Ber
lin to be an important movement un
der the direction of Field Marshal YOU
Hindenburg. His aim.ls believed to
be capture of Ll bau and Riga, which
will enable, bim to harass the Rus
sian eommunicatlons with Petrograd.
London. May 0.-For the first time
since the British forced the Germans
from Hill Number 60, near Ypres, Em
peror William's troops have been
partly successful In their counter at
tacks piora. No advices to the con
trary uavtng been received. It Is aa
sumed that the Germans are stilt
holding today the positions that they
obtained on the hill by the UBe of
asphyxiating gases. Meanwhile thc
German line, east of Ypres, is within
three miles ot the town.
The British presa does not seek to
deny br minimise the* persistency of
thia German offensive, but there is no
disposition to lament the drawing In
ot the British front to the eastward
and northeastward of Ypres, which
was the only alternative for success
ful counter attack. Confidence is ex
pressed tbst the new British align
ment' will prove beneficial in view of
the hard fighting that Is expected.
Nearly all the special news dis
patches from Flandern say that the
Germans are massing men for a new
assault toward the French ports.
The British observers bow admit
that the Austro-Germ?n forces hayo
inflicted several considerable local
defeats on tbs Russians on the weet
- Galletea front, but point out that the
I ??ntlre front has not been crushed, aa
waa at first elatmed, and that stab
born fighting continues.

lumber warehouse and a smaller
building material of this character.
