Ruwia's Galician Campaign a
Model of Sound Strategy.
Russia's canipalgn against Germany and Austria
Hungary has been Um sensation o? tin* war. 11
tot under way quietly, d?wol??i?r?l smoothly and
has never been ?**ri?>usly cheeked. In iiitelligyne?
ait conception and eMrfj of execution it ?-tumis out
far above anything which the Germani have ac?
complished in their invasion of France.
An ualyala of the operations in the saetera
theatre of war will show that Rnaalfl has dearly
.?utgeneralled both (?cimany and Austria-Hungary.
Neither P?erlln nor Vienna could believe that the
Cast's mobilization would be complete enough
within a month after the declaration of war to
.tustlfy a Russian ???Tensive movement. Germany
therefore fell Into the error ?>f leaving an Inade
?iuate defending force on the Buaslan-Eaai Prus
??an frontier, ami Austria-Hungary committed two
a>f its three armies, in Galicia to.a hazardous in?
vasion of Southern Poland, instead of keeping
id? in within Mpporttng distance of the third army.
w?tet was assigned to defend Laemberg. Both
those mtocalculat! ; ? played directly Into Russia's
hands.
The real Russian attack was to be made through
Kastern and Southeastern Galicia. In order to
mask it the Russian forces In Poland, stationed
te the south of Ivangorod, on the Vistula River,
?ielded to the Anstro-IInngarian attack and ell
slowly back to the neighborhood of Lublin. Great
Austrian smcesses were reported In the newspapers
of Vienna and Berlir. and it was assumed in b-ith
those capital.? that Russia had been (brown back
aieflnltely on the defensive.
So far as Berlin was concerned, thai illusion
was quickly dispelled by the second Russian mask?
iDg moveiueut?the invasion and occupation of East
Prussia,up to a line running south from K?nigs?
berg to Allenstein. The Inadequate German fron?
tier anny was defeated and disported and Germany
had to Interrupt the campaign In France In order.
10 transfer reinforcements to the eastern front.
?'eneral von Ilindcnbiirg gathered a big force and
drove the Invaders back to the border. But hat
effort, due to political clamor and not based am
sound strategical considerations, engrossed mosl
of the German strength in the east and prevented
effective German co-operation with Austrla-IIun
gar> in the critical campaign In Galicia.
The Russian attack, facilitated by the blunders
of Berlin and Vienna, swept np from the southeast,
smashed the Anstro-llungarian army east a ml
>outh of Lemberg and forced (be evacuation of the
Malician capital. Then the armies of Generals
Dankl and ?on Auffenbcrg, whicb had been drawn
into a dangerous position in (Southern Poland, were
attacked on the front and Bank and driven back
with enormous loeses Into the triangle formed by
the Sau. the Wtatoka and the Vistula rivers. Jaro?
slav, an Important fortified city on the San Blver,
was taken by assault, and I'rzeniy?-], the first class
fortress further up the course of the San. to whicb
remnants from the army of Lemberg had retired,
was isolated and invested.
Przemysl can hardly encape the fate ??r U?ge
snd Maubougc. The Russian armies are now well
beyond It. They bav? sd%'aneed thirty mile? west
of Jaroslav to RXat-tusow. along the railroad to
Cracow, and their outposts are reported ie> have
crosse?! the Wist oka River and t?. be nearly ui> to
Tni'iiov, which is only aboul twenty-five miles east
of Cracow.
The slight resistance offered to the Russian ad?
vance weal of Ja ros la i Unikales thai the Austro
Hungarlau forces bave ?mattered, some taking ref?
uge in Praemysl, some heading for the Carpathian
Mountain imsses and some rallying on Cracow. It
is doubtful now Whether the latter city can laa- held
very long by the disorgani/.cd An sir?? Iltjngai?aii?.
if they an- driven out In the directicm of Brfiuu,
the wholj province ?>f Galicia win be cleared and
the Russians will have aceompllabed In less than
two months the first long Stage of their mardi
toward Berlin. They will have ?otapicred a terri?
tory more than two hundred miles in extent, from
east to west, and \\i" hav?> aceompllabed that great
task without h single serious reverse.
When Cracow is occupied the Russians can |ir.
pare for ??heir next big movement The south wing
of their advance having been secured agai st Bank?
ing operations, the) ??ill probable push a large
army westwaitt fnun Warsaw toward the frontier
of the Prussian province of I'oseu. That is the
shortest line to Berlin, and Germany is already
massing troops between Thorn and Kalisz in order
to meet such an advaace, At any point between
Thorn and Kalisz the Russians would be well west
of the line of the Vistula Hiver, and a German de?
feat in that region would leave all tile fortresses
iu tl?c province of West Prussia?Thorn, Craudenz.
Dirschau and Hantai-j?isolated and compel an
evacuation of all of East Prussia except a strip
akmg the Baltic coast
ffhMcayInaPWife of P^ limpian strategy shows
?that the Invasion of Bast Prussia was only a feint
Intended to mislead the encniy. The line of the
Vistula was too strong to take by assault, and
there was no need < taking it when it ?could be
turned by a movement a little further south from |
Poland into Posen, ?.eneral Hennonknnipf fol? I

Barnes's L.ftect on the Whitman Candi?
dacy.
"The I ii?a Press" reports "a verj considerable
and pen*eptlble waning of Whitman sentiment **i>
state," and commenta that his ??Ii.k.ui was bigg-eat
when it began." That was to he expected. Up to
the time.of .the Wnltnian?-H?ooapvelt -controversy
the I ?1st riet Attorney and.Mr, Hedges were the only
seekers after the Gorernorohlp nomination, and Mr.
Whitman was easily the leader, sine?? tiie'ii the
glamour which enthusiastic press notice?; shed on
him lias been sub]ect?ed t?> careful scrutiny, and Me
bus been invit.-ii t.. measure im to rt standard ol
comparison set by Mr. Ulnman's record of years
of aiit'i-iiossisiu and legislative achievement, The
man who, failing liooseve-lt's indorsement, BCCept-Bd
Harness su*?imrt, could not measure up to thai
*tandanl. Tin- i:?-piibli?-.i.*is upstate have t;ik<n his
measure.
Mr. Whitman lias been -n excellent l>i?tri?'t At

?\itli tin: lesser r-ualilicationg is the man picked by
Harnes !?? enable him to regain his crip on he
party organization, the reasons against such a*
nomination seem conclusive. Mr. Whitman is a ha1
candidat?- in the- primarle?! because he has been
willing to sene ii> Baraes's stalking dorse. fSrtm
Harnes's closest friends must know whal Barnes

?????veel sea 11I attention from the voters In tin*? pn
mary campaign, ii is l ? i -_r t a time that s(,n.i-usid-,
(?ration be given t" the m?rita Of tlics?? men. 'llni-??
Is, in many instances, ?is sharp ?1 division ?n
Barnes ami anti-Barnes as exists between Whit
man and Illnman. Mr. Wudsweirth, who wants to
be? United states Senator, is pronouncedly 11 Barnes
supporter, and stood ?'iih Barnes against Governor
Hughes. Aside from that, he had a generally go**d
record In the laCgislature and has ability. Mr.
Calder is anti-Hani.-?, with a creditable record In
Congress. It Is unfortunate that neither measures
up to the .standard for this state- se't by Senator
Itoot. Dr. Hill's ma.', be regarded as ? local or
complimentary candidacy.
Of the candhlatee for Lieutenant Governor, s<-n
ator Heacock, <>f Ilion. Is ilie- b(-st. He lias ?erred
eight years in the house over which he would pr
side, and knows its business tlioro-mjlily. He is in

Schoeneck. of Syracuse', while possessed <?f some

GERMAN LITERARY DEFENCE
A Few Sample? of Teutonic Criticism
at It Reaches This Office.
To the K-litor of The Tribune.
Sir: For the opinion of the large
majority in this country we can only
? xpreaa contempt, since it is composed
of the veritable offscourings of Eu?
rope. Let me remind you of the cele?
brated dictum of Professor Garnach, of
Dresden: "The population of America
comprises home eighty-live millions,
many of whom are humaii."
We Germans thoroughly indorse
him, and I feel confident that America
will have cause to regret her inex
euaablt attitude toward our glorious
Fatherland. The German memory is a
long one.

Casting Pearls Before the Office Cat.
? i to u.1 ft?/ the O.-A L. D. CM
Mr. Samlers, German-American Liter?
iry IWene-e Committee, 183 William
st,, New York. N. V.
Dear Sir: As an American citizen,
1 have noticed with disgust the great
partiality and the unneutrality of the
New York press. I really think that
they are paid by the British govern?
ment. In any case, it is dead sure
that the German government is not
eloing anythi.ig, while the British gov?
ernment has been known for playing
, an underhand game for the last two
hundred years.
And no*' I see one of the lowest and
indecent exhibitions that I have ever
read in print. The New York Tribune
has sunk to the lowest level to which
a newspaper can sink. You probably
noticed that they entitled s letter
which you wrote? them with the follow
ing caption : "Respectfully Referred
to the Oflice- Cat."
To you, gentlemen, I wish to say:
"Do not throw pearls before swine!"

publish the address of "Mme. Jean Al
??ide Picard," whose story appears in
this morning's issue of The Tribune, as
! Iijuc ways of verifying this story and
il i- my honest belief tl*Bt that story
is the invention of a reporter's bruin
??ml that this woman does not exist.

The "All-Lies."
i To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I have just finished reading
vnur editorial of to-day's date "The
Development of the Russian Attack."
1. as well as everybody, know that the
"N. Y. Tribune" worships the All-Lies
and their noble All-Lie the Russ. Yet,
t is amazin;: that a supposedly self
respestini paper (as your? claims to

and idiotic scribble as the above men*
t'oned editorial containa. Man, one
?hould reslly believe you insane, that
you. in the face of facts?of indisputable
i realities -attempt to ssacrt such plain
lying and impossible statements! 1 am

your hate for Germany and her valiant

GET RID OF "BOSS" BARNES
Vote for Hinman and the Republican
Party, Is a Vote-fvs Plea.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I hope the enrolled Republi?
cans of New York will take H?lvantage
of the opportunity offered next Monday
to forever get rid of "Boss" Barnes.
For years we have recognize! that
his influence was evil. We have said
that "Barnes must go." Now comei
the time to act
He pretends to fool the people by
statyig just before the primaries that
he has retired, but he still dominates
the party, just as his partner in poli?
tics, Murphy, continued to rule the
Democratic party even after the
"dummy" Osborne was made chairman.
Kill Barnes by voting against his
candidate. A vote for Hinman is a
vote for the Republican party and a
vote against bossism.
Republican voters, do your duty.

MUZZLING ORDINANCE A JOKE?
The Unjust Case of the Muzzled vs.
the Unmuzzled Dogs.
Ti the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Is the do-; muzzling ordinance
a joke or is it to be enforced eventu?
ally?
I am the owner of a common dog, und
since September 14 this dog has never
been out of doors without being prop?
erly muzzled. On the evening of Sep?
tember 16, while properly muzzle?! and
on a leash, he was attacked by an un?
muzzled bulldog, and, accordingly, ?nv
dog bad no opportunity for self-pro*
tection.

FAITH IN THE BAYONET
Why an Old Soldier Rates It at Su?
perior to the Automatic.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In an article in your ?ssuc o''
September 20 it was stated that it U
unquestionable that an automatic Colt
is superior to the bayonet in a charge.
Well, having been in a few ?-craps and
used both in Afghanistan, Zululand,
Egypt snd South Africs, in my opinion
the bayonet is best, for the following
reasons: First, ,t never misses fir?.;
second, you have not to reload ?n th?'
midst of a struggle, which is a difficul:
operation in *> conflict; third, you: am
munition does not run down; * lurtt
your magazine or chamber does no*
get blocked or stuck with an , n.pty
cartridge. Tharea'ore. 1 think the old
bayonet cannot be discarded. I huvc
seen Zulus, Kaffirs, dervisnes, Nubians,
! Sikhs and Araba ?topped by the bay?
onet when all else failed; and the
Boers could not stand against it
