ports of several days past that the
Russians continue to be pressed back
in Galicia and the Carpathians, and
that Hungary is free of enemy forces.
Petrograd does not deny the gains
claimed by the Teutons, but declares
that the Russians are fihting bacli
hard at certain points, and that the
attacks of the Teutons, while undi
minished in vigor, are becoming lest

On the western line Barlin declares
that the Germans have (IrI yen the al

near Ypres and that they have cap

Sir John French. the British conunan

that (IJQ,0 Italians have been concen- -

Field Marshal Sir John Fr'ench, the

but the French communicat ion, far
from confirming a German victory in
Belgium, states that the German at

French artillery, suffered very severe

A late rep-rt from the British waw
office also says that German attacks
were repulsed, although the Germans
used asphyxiating gases and did get
a footing by the use of these fumes
on Hill No. 60, southeast of Ypres,
which, since the British captured it
recently, has been repeatedly attack

There has been fighting all along
th rthe rest ewestern front, in all

ever, have another story to tell. They
insist that their advance continues

and In Woevre, where battles have
