Their right is reported to be within fifty miles of the French capital. In the absence of official announcements news dispatches in dicate the French and British troops continue a stubborn re sistance, giving way slowly, however, whenever their strategy is necessary to keep their lines intact and prevent an enveloping move ment by the German right. In the east the fighting progresses with unabated fury. Both the Russians and the Austro-Gernian armies have met successes and reverses. It is admitted in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) that two army corps were defeated in East Prussia and that three Rus sian generals were lost. On the other hand the Austrlans appear to have been defeated in Galicia where overwhelming successes are claimed for the Rus sian forces. This claims finds support in a dispatch from Vienna which states that the Austrians had decided to evacuate Lemberg, the capital of Galicia. Official dispatches from Petrograd by way of London show evidence of having been closely censored in London. The attitudes of Turkey and Italy are anxiously awaited by all the belligerents. A semi official dispatch from Petrograd says that Turkish tnjips have landed on the shores of Asia Minor at Smyrna Further pressure is reported to have been brought on Italy by Ger many and Austria to have her support the Triple Alliance.

Austrians Admit Defeat in Galicia For First Time By Associated Press London, Sept. 2, 1:30 p. m.—The announcement from Vienna that preparations have been made for the evacuation of Lemberg, the capital of Galicia, In view of the "Inevitabil ity" of an approaching Russian occu pation, Is the first official admission that the Austrians have been worsted in the prolonged fighting In Galicia. Moreover Russian accounts from this field of operations have been con tinuously cheerful. Even the defeat of Russians by the Germans in East Prussia has unabated the optimism of Petrograd. The Russian chief of the general staff calls the affair merely a reverse due to the unexpect ed appearance of heavy German re inforcements accompanied by siege guns apparently from the fortresses of Thorn and Graudenz. Nothing so complete as the pres ent censorship of the news from the battle line in France has been knoft-n since the beginning of the war.
