Admiral Kolchak’s all-Russian forces have been driven from Irkutsk, accord ing to dispatches from the Siberian front. Desperate fighting continues near the city, thb dispatch said, with the anti bolshevlk forces apparently making a fu tile effort to retake Irkutsk from the forces of War Minister Trotsky. In the south the forces of Gen. Deni ken continue victorious, driving the poorluy equipped nntl-bolshevik forces toward the sea of Azov and Odessa. Deniken, It was Indicated, has vir tually ceased to be an Important factor In the military situation. His army split, allied support withdrawn and his muni tions exhausted, the anljl-bolshcvl.k. leader was reported prepared to aban don his headquarters at Taganrog and seek safety In a war ship In the sea of Azov. Meantime a dispatch from Helsingfors today quoted advices from Dorpat that peace negotiations between Kstlionians and the bolsheviki bad been broken off. Pritish official circles, it was said, are beginning to swing to the view that some sort of understanding with Russia is inevitable. Observers believed im portant developments may come from tlie conferences between James O'Grady, M. I\, and Livtlnoff in Copenhagen.
