PETROGRAD, Doc. 28.?The Rus
sian Gaiician. army] which- a- short
time ago, was In touch on the south
with an Austrian garrison defending
Cracow, moved back to the Biala riv
er, which is some 50 miles east of
former Russian positions. Notwith
standing the fact that Russian retro
gression completely relieved the in
vestment of the fortress of Cracow,
It Is claimed by military observers
to be a marked offensive movement
for the Russians, the retirement be
ing due to the discovery or the Aus
trian aim to cut into halves tho Rus
sian forces in this region. Tho Aus
trian reports from the Russian south
ern front say:
"We began advancing December 23
?from Pymbark, 35 miles southeast of
Cracow, with the apparent object o?
'swinging around the left of the Rus
sians along the river Biala, northward
of Tarnow, and joining forces wita
the army of Gen. Boehn-Ermolll.
which was advancing along the rail
road from Sanok and Lisko. Tho
premature appearance of Gen. Boehn
Ermolll's army, to the south of Przem
ysl, put the Russians on guard and
the Russians concentratcd along the
Biala river, moved down and attack
ed the Austrians at Tuchow, 15 miles
south of Cracow, where they were suc
cessful in preventing a junction of
the Austrian armies.
"Meanwhile tho ascension of the
Russians was directed to the Aus
trians advancing from Sanok, which
movement was checked. After their j
successes in this district the Ru-s-'
slans took the offensive along the Bi
ala river. Christmas day the Rue
slans won the battle of Tuchow, tho
Austrians Tetreatlng throughout the
following day. The Russians captur
ed 35,000 prisoners and IS machine
guns.
"Later the Russians crossed to the
western bank of Biala and success
fully stormed the heights of Sierl
liska, four miles south of Tuchow.
"The Russians took possession of u
20 mile strip of territory and thus
succeeded in separating two Aus
trian forces."
