ODD FELLOWS MARCH 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. 2j.OH3 PRISONERS. 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.
