STILL FALL PACK
RUSSIANS, HOWEVER, ARE
FAIL IN THE NORTH
Germans Reported Winning Pro
nounced Successes Through
out Southern Poland.
London, Aug. 10.-The Teutonic
pressure ou the eastern front con
ues heavily against thc Russians all
atong tho line. The russians are re
tiring steadily in most sections North
cast of Warsaw, up to the Baltic, tho
Russians aro making a most de
termined Bland. Increasingly strong
resistance is indicated in this terri
tory, where a serioua breach will me
nace the Russian defense.
In the Baltic provinces,. Petrograd
claims that the Germans arc -being
pressed back irom Riga on land, while
the attempt of a German battle fleet
to get through the minc barriers at'
the entrance of the gulf of Riga was
Tho Russians also claim to have
checked Uio German advance guards
in thc Vilkomcr district, where thc in
vaders are within 50" miles ' of the
trunk line railroad to Petrograd.
At Kovno, it is declared that des
perate attacks- on the forts have been
repulsed with.heavy losses.
AuBtro-German pressure oil thc re- :
tiring Russians continues strong in
the Warsaw sector, along the lines
to tuc southeast.

tons are reported throughout south
ern Poland. *

Austrian trenches in Cavallo pass in
the Carnie region and Plava zone. .

near the Euphrates river.
A Rrltlsh advance in the vicinity of
Hooge marked tho most important en
gagement the British army has fig
ured in since tho Festuhert battle last
May.' The gain was small, but waa
main tabled against counter tl tacas.
The Balkan situation is chaotic. A
Saloniki dispatch says the Teutonic
plan to strike at. Serbia bas found
expression in concentration of forces .
along the Sorbtan frontier, lt ls said
that one hundred thousand troops
have bean massed .at Orsova, Hun
gary, which may bo tho forerunner
of tho predicted campaign to aid Tur
Italy, has not declared war on Tur
key, but Athens reports that the'Ita
lian consuls are leaving Turkey, en
trusting Italian affairs to Americana.
If true it probably will mean impend
ing d?v*>lopments in the (Balkans, dic
tated by Italian action.-.
The British press is sarcastic about
the German's reports ot poaco over
tures to Russia. Virtually all relt
orato there can be no p?..nco until tho
allies win. It is generally believed
that Germany is willing to conclude
peace aa matters stand, but the. bur
den of comment ls that the situation
makes peace impossible from the ?- j
Ees' standpoint. !
