IN BRILLIANT ARRAY
AT ATLANTIC CITY
TETHOOKAt), Sept. 23.
TVIth Jaroslaw In their hands as a re-
iult of a bombardment lasting only two
days, the llusslan armies expect soon to
capture Przemysl. This fortress Is the
iast obstacle to n direct march upon
TarnoW and Cracow, Austria's most Im
portant base In Gnllcla. Its capture Is
not essential to the plan of the Russian
General Staff, but If Its I eduction can be
accomplished a large force of men that
would otherwise be held back by Its In
vestment would be freed for field service.
It was onuially announced here today
that Jaroslaw was taken by direct assault
and was not surrendered by the Austri
ns. The official statement says that the
Russians, after shelllnR the city for
hours, attacked on all sides In force. The
Austrlans were driven from their posi
tions nt the point of the bayonet, but
succeeded In firing most of their reserve
supply depots, destroying thetn before the
Russians could Interfere.
According to a report received nt the
War Office today from Oeneral Uuzsky
the capture of Jaroslaw wns made with
out heavy los to the llusslans who bo
slcged It. but the Austtlan garrisons of
tho 23 forts there suffered terribly More
than 6800 were killed or wounded by tho
lira of tho Russian siege guns.
It Is reported at headquarters that tho
Russians took more than 3,000 prisoners,
large quantities of ammunition and sup
plies and 64 guns, besides many rapld
flrers. Some of the Austrian troops at
tempted to retieat to Przemysl as the
forts wcie being battered to pieces, but
they were cut off bj th Coss.icks, who
had crossed the San River at Radons
The canture of Jaroslaw will be of great
help to the Russian armies, as tt controls
tho railroad leading from iemDers to
Cracow. This Is now held b General
Ruzaky's troops as far nest as Rzeszow,
80 miles from Jaroslaw. Apparently be
lieving that Jaroslaw would be able to
hold out, the Austilans railed to tear up
the railroad west of there and It is In
condition for the transportation of troops
without any repairs being necessary.
SIEGE OF JAROSLAW.
The correspondent of tho Nevoe Vremya
ends a brief but graphic account of tho
fall of Jaroslaw.
The bombardment began Sunday
night and continued for 45 hours. h
says. B noon Honda five forts had
been smashed and the guns In several
others had benn put out of commls
Blon The aim of the Austrian") was
bad and they seemtd unable to locate
our big guns.
On the contrary, our gunners made
very shot tell. All through Mon
day, that night and Tuesday the ter
rific hail of bhells rained upon Jaros
law. Late Tuesday afternoon the Aus
trian fire slackened and the order to
"t'l&Ue tho forts by storm was given.
Ve met with sharp opposition, but
the Austrlans were unable to with
stand the Russian Mjonots and the
Russian Hag snon was hoisted.
Some of the forts are only wrecks,
ahowlng the frU, iful effect of the
siege guns Though Przemysl Is
stronger thin J.'ircsl.i.', it i hirdly
possible that that fortresi will be
able to hold out long.
An official statement IssueJ todiy says
that the Russians are slowly tailing back
from East Prussia before oet whelming

We have a new tariff, lower than any In recent years. Yet

We have a new banking law, designed to put us beyond the
reach of panic. Yet every stock exchange in the country
with two or three exceptions is closed.
We have been blessed with the greatest crops in the histoiy
of the United States. Yet the price of wheat is higher than
at any time in the last 16 years.
In view of these things, are we overstating the case when we
say that in the last two months the world has been turned
upside down ?
