Petrograd correspondent to the Morn

London, Sept. 30—Almost simultan

of the battle in the north of France
has fallen some decisive result must
be announced soon. The allies have
struck the ermans' right the Germans
have hurled themselves against the
Fernch line between Verdun and Toul.
The commencement of these two at
tacks is disclosed by the French offi
cial statement this afternoon little is
told of how they are progressing. The
actions are described as "violent."
Some confirmations have come of
yesterday's report that the Germans

Petrograd despatch, having been en

In. Galicia, the Russians have annex

A Central News Rome dispatch says
the Austrian seaport Lissa. in Dalma
tia, was bombarded by the French
fleet Sept. 19. Later French troops
landed and entered the garrison. The
British, and French flags were hoisted
over Lissa.
A Paris Havas dispatch says that
after landing at Lissa, the British and
French flags were hoisted to provoke
the Austrian fleet to come out and
engage the allied fleet. Three Aus
trian squadron, it adds, are sheltered
in the canal at Fassana, opposite the
Austrian naval station of Pola.
Inability to take prompt care of the
sick and wounded soldiers in the field
due to lack of nurses and surgeons, Is
manifesting itself to an alarming de
gree in the rear of the allies' lines.
An American official, for several days
close behind the lines, said he found
200 soldiers in one emergency camp
had been two days without food and
water tkey had had no surgical at
tention, some badly injured their
wounds foul from neglect. "I saw
men lying on the battlefield in France"
he added, "whose wounds actually
rotting through neglect."
The Austrian navy also has been
busy again and has added another
German possession in the South Pa
cific to its list of captures. This time
it is Kaiser Wilhelm's land, the Ger
man portion of New Guinea, one of
the emperor's most valuable colonies
in that part of the world. It is ex
pected that Admiral Patey will take
the rest of the German Pacific is
lands, leaving a small garrison at
each.
