Because of the spectacular phases of
the recent Gallclan struggle the grim
struggle at Ossowlefct has been almost
overlooked for several weeks. Desperate

since the Germans Invested tho fortress
from the north
All day longf the Russian and German
guns keep up a- continuous fire, while at
night either ono side or the other'
launches an Infantry attack. In bblh
phases of the fighting the Russians have
been superior thus far. The heavy guns
of Ossowletz have prevented tho Germans
from bringing up their 17-Inch howitzers.
Russian aviators make hourly flights over
the German positions, directing tho fire
of the fort's artillery.
Only one of the German guns suc
ceeded In finding the range of Ossowits.
This sent three shells into tho town, kill

sive League of Near East
LONDON, July 14.
Reports of n reorganization of the Bal
kan Alliance under the guiding hand of
Eleutherlos Venlzelos, formerly tho Greek
Premier, and the originator of tho alli
ance are current This Is considered sig
nificant, as Venlzelos Is an ardent sup
porter of the Franco-Brltleh-nuMlnn-Itnllan
Allies, and on this Issue his party
vns returned victorious In the recent elec
tions. Therefore, It Is considered likely
that If, ns rcportod, Venezlos reorganizes
tho Alliance the Balkan States will Join
tho Entente Allies In the wnr.
The cntlro Balkan situation, ns a matter
of fact, Is once mors to the fore, prlncl-,
pally as a result of tho disclosures that
tho Austro-Gormans have offered to Ru
mania alternative concessions either to
continue neutral or Join with the Ger
man allies. Confidence Is expressed In
British, French nnd Italian circles thnt
tho Balkan Btates will not Join the Aus-tro-Germans,
