tones." Today's bulletin said:
BEBISTANCB STRONG ON NAREW.
"Ve are gallantly resisting the enemy's
attack on the Narew line. Tho Russian
losses are very heavy."
Military men hero took this to mean
that the German advance has been
brought to a halt, though with heavy
sacrifices of lives. These losses, how

that von Gauwi was prepared to Dat

BY A UNITED PRESS
COPENHAGEN, X-July 22 (by mall to
New York). England will not bo able to
use Kitchener's army for an offensive
drive against the Germans this summer,
and probably not In the autumn. If the
coming winter Is severe enough to Inter
fere with effective military operations
there may be no major English attempt
to drive tho Germans back to their own
frontier' until next spring one year late.
In tho meantime peace may come, and
the war may end. without the full strength
of the British Empire having a chance
to test Itself against the Germans.
This Information reaches the United
Press from Bources In closa touch with
inner conditions, both in England and at
the front. Tho United Press also learns
that the British munitions situation is
much more serious than is generally
known, and that peace Is nearer than is
British statesmen realize the Empire's
prestige has suffered severely because of
the small part England's army has been
able to play In tha continental fighting.
Thla is tho principal Teason why England
will not talk about-erms of peaca at tha
present time. But, once Great Britain's
offenslvo power is rehabilitated, England
will -nnt. fin averse tto conslderlne tover-
turea for ending tho war.
WOULD RESTORE PRESTIGE.
Recovery of military self-respect could
bo gained by England If Sir Ian Hamil
ton's army would bring the Galllpolt cam
paign to a triumphant conclusion. The
forcing of the Dardanelles would be chief
ly a British viqtory and Constantinople's
fall would restore England's prestige.
The Galllpoll operations, therefore, aro
mora Important than the campaign In
Franca and Belgium In so far aa their
bearing on peaca la concerned. Sir Ian
Hamilton's task Is becoming noticeably
lighter after each assault against tha
Turkish positions and quarters not given
to baseless optimism believe the fortifica
tions guarding the Dardanelles Narrows
may be subdued from tha land aide by
next autumn and possibly before.
Tha necessity for hammering away at
the Turks la one reason why the English
army In Flandera la so short of ammuni
