BRITISH LINES WITHSTAND
HEAVY GERMAN ASSAULT

great reserves concentrated in front
of the British line from Verdun and
other points on the western battle
front in bitter endeavor to wrest
back from the Britons the land they
have captured in the last few days.

penetrating lines in region of Try
ston, causing Germans to give up ad
vanced position held beyond Stock
hod river.

ture of Brody was again announced.
Rome, July 29. Italian liner Re
Italia, bound from Genoa to New

czar's forces opportunity to improve
their thrust northwestward toward
Kovel. Meanwhile it was believed
here today czar's troops are forcing
onward toward Lemberg.

posed joint commission's inquiry into
United States-Mexican relations be
