In East * ♦ Prussia the Russians are developing an offensive in the region of Rominten and Lyck. t FRENCH DECLARED TO HAVE ASSUMED THE OFFENSIVE! Palis. Nov. 9. —The French drive against the German line has commenced, i Unless all signs fail, history will record that in the battle of Flanders, as in the German advance upon Paris, Generalj Joffre waited only until he considered j that the German forces had been on the offensive just long enough to batter their strength out against a line that j was impregnable, and then ordered a| general offensive movement in great j strength. it is no' in the l-'rouch strategy to foretell these movements. Indeed the fate of these dispatches with the cen sors rests solely on the understanding that the interpretation placed upon the news of the day front official sources is that of the correspondent and not of any official. It is • permissible to state, however, that in the massing of great bodies ofj reinforcements behind the allied troops on the battle front about Ypres and Arras it was not merely the French j plan to better the Allies' chances of withstanding the impending German at tack, but to be able. when, in the opin ion *.<!' General Jofl're and his start' the moment should arrive, to assume the ofl'eus:»e in such proportion as to in sure a decisive defeat for the Germans. I The official communications issued yesterday afternoon and last night gave news not only of the weakening of the German attack, but of the successful embarkation of the allied troops upon their offensive movement. Where the offensive was not taken by the Allies their Itne held firmly against the Ger man assaults. The afternoon statement records that between the River Lys and the North Sea on Saturday the lighting generally was less violent and that the attacks of the enemy, mainly sporadic, wer<> re pulsed, particularly in the direction of Dixmude and to the northeast of Ypres. Says Silesia Is Invaded London. Nov. 9.—The "Times'' cor respondent at Petrograd, telegraphing yesterday, says that according to pri vate advices the Austro-Gernian armies have left Kailscz aud Czestochowa and that Poland is now clear of the enemy.
