A Polish Counter Offensive Liberat

London The Russian northern
-irtny-has-opened negotiations for
surrender, according to a report
from Vienna today. The dispatch,
which was unconfirmed, said -' the
Bolshevists had sent a messenger to
General Sidorski to arrange terms of
London By : a smashing counter
'offensive early' last week the hard-
pressed folish army not only halted
the- bolshevist horde at the gates of
Warsaw, but turned them back and
almost converted the red retreat into
, U rout. The series of battles assured
the liberation of Poland. The Poles
then proceeded to bottle ud the red I
army which now is confroned by dis
aster, ine roles nave taken prison
ers and materials, in such quantities
that it is impossible to count them.
The counter-offensive was success
ful from the start The attack on
is'ovogeorgievsk was stopped at the
outer forts. A shrapnel barrage tore
' great ; gaps ?in the ranks .jof . the ad
vancing reds. They came doggedly
, gnuntuwithin machine -gun-range,
when a hailstorm of bullets mowed
them down in great windrows. As
they crumpled and began to give way
the Polish infantry charged, bayonet
ing tne retreating Kussians. The
withfrawal became almost a rout,
and J'olish cavalry, taking up the pur
suit, drove the soviet forces back ten
niles before they could re-form their
Winks. ;'' . '
The drive of the Poles continued
bS the week progressed. More than
thirty-five thousand prisoners, three
liundred machine guns and thousands
of supply carts .had been captured by
oaiuruay. i he roles first occupied
Jlrest-Litovsk, Plonsk, Pultiuk,
