' ' .HELMETS MARK' GRAVES OF GERMANS -. i PU H CARRANIA'S AGENTS B T Crushing Back Russians in Gigantic Struggle Against the Center. (Continued from First Pace.) the territory lost when the Russians had the whip hand. Retreat Fifty Mies. Tho fighting between the German of fensive and the Russian defensive Is most desperate, aa the Importance of the present engagement Is not under estimated either in Berlin or Petrosrrad. Public Interest is centered! largely on the battle between the Russians and Ger mans In the territory between the Vis tula and Warthe rivers, as It is believed that tho result of the great struggle here not only will have a tremendous effect upon operations elsewhere, but may in fluence the duration of the war. Official information as to tho progress of the fight is meagre, although it Is generally admitted that a mighty en gagement is in proress. The Russians seek to minjmire the ef fect of their fifty-mile retreat, although Germany's success In drivincr the Rus sians back from the frontier Is not de nied In Petrograd. In Berlin General Von Hindenburg, to whose brilliant tactics the new victory vas due, 1b once more hailed as the pre server of the Fatherlandi It appears that General Von Hindenburg did not consider the Russian advance In East Pruasia or against Silesia dangerous for the moment and struck hard at the Rus sian center, grasping the offensive be fore the Russians could fathom his plans. There Is no disposition In Petrograd to underestimate the new German offensive movement of the generalship of Von Hindenburg, but Russian opinion Is that the important campaign at present is In East Prussia and that Russia will bo able to hold the Germans in Poland while pushing her East Prussian force westward. The German advance in Po land is regarded by Russian militaiy observers as u feint at Warsaw de signed to draw Russian troops from their advance In East Prussia and to relieve the strain -on Cracow. In spite of. the German demonstration the Rus sian columns are steadily converging on Cracow. Petrograd asserts, and have reached to within twenty-five miles of the fortress. The Austrians are stubbornly contest ing the Russian offensive and are taking advantage o f every creek and hillock suitable for defense. The Russians state that their troops have crossed the last river east of Cracow. In this region the? Russian troops form two fronts, one facing Cracow and the other facing the Carpathians.

Russian Black Sea Fleet Attacks German Cruisers LONDON, Nov. 20. A desperate en counter has occurred between a divis ion of the Russian Black Sea fleet and two vessels of the Turkish navy. No ships were sunk or captured, and offi cial statements from both governments claim victory. Petrograd admits a loss of tli rty-' three officers and men, with twenty five wounded, but sas that tho Goc ben, formerly a German battle cruiser, but now flying the Sultan's flag, wah put out ot commission by the 13vstafi, the Russian flagship. The Russian statement that the Goeben was struck amidships by a 11-inch shell ar.a was seen to be ablaze. Is accepted as indicating that tho Injur to the 'ruirr may have been scr'ous. The Russians admit that the Goeben was able to e&eape, owing to hrr great speed The fire on board is said to have b on pxtinguishpd. hut it is felt certain that the Goebn's wounds I11 surrly l.t p hrr out of action for some time. Particular satisfaction Is felt in Eng land over 'he blow dealt the Goeben. It was on account of her feat of escap ing from under the guns of tho allied i-hipb in the Mediterranean that a Brit ish admiral was tried by court-martial. He was aroujtted, but British naval pride was pricked by the escape of the Goeben Tho Breslau. which also escaped with th Goeben, is likewise reported by tho R!ssfain to hpvc been on the scon of the Bla-k ea fight She did not staA to give battle, however, and escaped Tne Rustian nttaokinc Torce consisted of the Evstafi, one other battio.mip. probablj tho Ioann JWoust, and five cru sers. Tho Turkish ships were tho Goeben and the BrcMau. The Evstafi opened fire and tho engagement la-sted for about a quarter of sin hour. Iho Russian ministry ot marine has g'ven out an account of ttie light, which says: A division of our epsels belonging to the Blark Sea fleet, on their r--turn to Sebastonol from a rrui alonn the Anatolian coast, sighted on November IS a Turkish squadron, consisting of the battle ruisnr Goe. ben and tho cruiser Breslau twenn- ttrtA. N.S. &T.Co. Nov. 16 1914 five miles from the Chersonese light house. Tho Russian fleet at once maneuvered into battle order, bring ing tho enemy on their starboard, and opened fire. Tho distance was a little ovor five miles. Tho first discharge of the 12-inch guns of the flagship Evstafi struck the Goeben and caused an rxplo--sion which resulted in an outbreak of fire. Tho Russian flagship and other vc3sc s continued to make ex cellent practice, and further explo sions occurred on the Goeben. Tho Goeben opened Arc after some delay. The enemy very apparently vas taken by surprise. The Ger mans fired broadsides of their heavy guns, concentrating their fire on tho Russian ilagsh.p. The action lasted fourteen minutes, after which the Gocbcp disappeared in tho rnlat. Tho Breslau. taking advantage of her speed, did not share in the ac tion, but kept in the offing. The Evstnfl was tho only Russian Aessel to suffer damage, and that was Ins.gnificant.
