No damage was done. Two British aero planes Immediate! rose In pursuit, but the Germans escaped in the mist. BERLIN STANDS PAT BERLIN. Dec. 24. Among the offi cial items tonight Is tbe following: "While there Is a general confi dence that the Germans and their ally are making progress along tbe extended battle line in the east, there is no indication either in German or Austrian official reports that any marked advantage has been won. The situation in the west I'aa not ma terially changed, despite desperate efforts of the Allies. "It Is noticeable that Vienna uses the adjective, 'favorable' in referring o battles in tbe Carpathians, but contents itself with saying that a se vere battle !ong lower Dunajec river on Krosno-Tucnow line continues. "8trlkingly frank snd interesting is the official Vienna report concern- i ing the Austrian withdrawal from Ser vis, which was due to terrible condi tions In the country, also the fact the Servians bad been reinforced. The lAustiians lost conslderaby ln the re treat, but the spirit of tbeir army was unsurpassable. The Austrian general staff refutes tbe allegations contained in bulletins of the Russian general- staff that tbe Austrlana lost 3,000 prisoners and a number of ma chine guns, declaring this report quite unfounded. The total Austrian loss in killed, wounded and mlsslug Augng the Hght amounts to 207. No machlue guns 'were lost."
