Petrograd Gives Out Statement Covering Operations of
the Czar's Troops Throughout District—Com
plete Defeat of Joseph's Forces.
etrograd. via Londop, Sept. 14.—
The following statement issued by the
Russian headquarters staff describes
this Russian operations dulminatlng in
the victories of Kr&nslk and Tomas
sow, Russian Poland:
"The total Austrian a.nd German
forces exceed 1.000,000" men with 2,
600 guns—that is. Over forty divisions
oft- infantry, eleven divisions of cavalry
reinforced by several German divi
"The main body, of the enemy, num
bering 600,000 men. moved towards
Zavichyart and Tomaszow, advancing
on Lublin and Chfelm (Russian Po
land). Its right wing was covered by
the Lemberg (capital of Galical) army
numbering 200 battalions. Its left
wing was covered by several AuBtro
German divisions around Radom
(Russian Poland).
"On August 25 the Austrian armies
began a determined advance to coun
teract the blow which was threatening
Eastern Prussia. The deployment of
Russian troops over a front of sev
eral hundred. versts (a verst is ap
proximately two-thirds of a mile), had
not yet been captured. We could,
therefore, only face the Austrians In
the north with a greatly inferior force.
The first attacks on the enemy were
directed against Kransnik, but the
center of the Austrian efforts soon was
Tomaszow, a district into
which their reinforcements began'to
Paris, Sept. 14.—It is officially announced this afternoon that the
Germans are still retiring everywhere. Tliey are abandoning all post
tions which they erected to cover possible retreat. Hie official state
merit follows:
"First-—On oar left wing the enemy had prepared, to the north of
Alsne, between Compalgne and Soissoos, a line of defense which it was
forced to abandon. Some detachments which it had held at Amiens
now have retired upon Perrons and St. Quern tin.
"Second—On the center the Germans had taken no a defensive po
sition behind Reims, but .were unable to bold it. In the Argonne
region, they turned back toward the north'beyond the forest of Bel
nolle, and beyond Trlauoourt.
"Third—On the right wing the retreating wing of the Germans
is general'from Nancy to the Voogea. Yesterday evening French ter
ritory in this vicinity had been completely evacuated."
London, Sept. 14.—In a dispatch from Ghent, the correspondent of
The Dally News says that, after two day's of investigation, he has con
firmed the statement that Russian troops are In Belgium.
This refers to the force of Russians supposedly brought by way of
Archangle,- on the Arctic coast of Russia, by way of the north of the
Scandinavian countries, thence to Stiottaad, south through Fjtgland and
across the channel to Ostend.
Newspapers of Ghent, the correspondent says, printed a statement
last. Saturday as follows:
"The German army has been cot at Caunteberg between Brussels
and Iiouvaln, by a Belgian army, reinforced by Russian troops."
The correspondent's Investigations confirmed this* "bnt where these
Russians are arid what their numbers may be It wonld be Indiscreet to
tell," be says.
Continuing, the correspondent mentions the possibility that the Rus
sian is not the only army reinforcing the Belgians.

The right and center of the German army of invasion in France is

The British statement reviews the operations of the British in

Reports concerning the fighting in Russian Poland and Gallcia,. are

Russian forces were bombarding ICoenigsberg.

"On September 3 when the fall of
Lemberg was Imminent, the Austrian
advance reached a culminating point.
On its frontal line the enemy extended
from Opole (on the- east bank of the
Vlstula-about midway between.Radom
and. Lublin, in Russian Poland) to
Bychave, approaching within gunshot
of the station at Travnlkand envelop
ing Krasntov (34 miles south of Lub
lin) Zamosc, Gfabessof, near Josefow
(on the east bank of the Vistula a
short distance south of Opole.)
Two bridges were thrown across the
Vistula, over which troops from Ra
dom crossed on their way to the bat
tlefield, while, awaiting the result of
General Ruzsky's operations, our plan
was based on the rapid reinforce
ments of our right wing. The Rus
sian railway carried out this task very
successfully. Our troop's in. the Chelm
district, which' were insufficient and
too Widely spread out, and against
which the principal attack of the Aus
trians was directed, did not receive
reinforcements—fpr ,the advance of
the Austrians even at Chelm itself
could eventually only increase the con
sequences of? their defeat in the event
of ultimate success of our-wings.
"In spite of their numerical ade
quacy our troops in the center did not
confine themselves In defence. They
delivered a counter attack, obtaining
considerable success near Lacheve,

Bismarck, N. D., Sept. 14.—The

that no person can claim complete ti

Paris, Sept. 14.—Former Premier
Arlstlde Bryand, General Galleni, mil
itary governor of Paris, and American
Ambassador Herrlck today visited the
American section of the Pasteur Insti
tute, where about 100 French, British
and German wounded are seeking
treatment. M. Bruand in the name of
the government, thanked, the women
of the American colony, the physicians
and nurses. Mr. Herrlck talked with
the German wounded, especially the
officers, and inquired how they were
being cared for. They replied that
nothing more could be done for them
than was being done.
The visitors also called at St. Mar
tin's hospital, where they conversed
with the German wounded as well as
with the French and British. The Ger
mans expressed satisfaction with their
Austrian Outlook Dark.
London, Sept 14.—A Reuter dis
patch from Rome says:

reinforcements into Gallcia owing to

It is even asserted that the German
contingents which reached Grodek to
help the Austrians may be recalled to
Germany, as Germany wishes to center
all her efforts against, the allies."
Joffre Reports Success.
Paris, Sept. 14.—General Gallienl,
military governor of Paris, today re
ceived the following message from
General Joffre, commander-in-chief of
the Pk-ench army:
The battle' of the last five days
has ended an' undeniable victory.
The retreat of the first, second and
third German armies is hastening be
fore our left, and at our center, in
turn, the fourth German army is com

They Have Joined Forces with Belgians, According to Authentic/
Advices From Ghent—"Battle of the Ages" Fit Title for
Great Fight Now Believed Nearly Ended
London, Sept. 14.—The first stage of the battle of the Marne, which from the
numbers of fighting men engaged, the extent of the line of battle, and the terrific
slaughter, is perhaps correctly described as "the battle of the ages," appears to have
been won by the French and British armies, but the main German army is still in
tact, and the supreme clash is still to come. The present week may see even more
desperate encounters than any which have taken place.
Metz, the capital of Lorraine, of the chain of forts thence to Diedemhoff, on
the Moselle, 17 miles north of Metz, form the strong pivot for the German left,
while the river courses and dense forests on the frontier, together with stratetgic
roads, give the German army invasion, now in retreat, a splendid opportunity for de
fensive action. Should the French pursuit extend this far, military observers fore
see all kinds of perplexing possibilities in the event of the Germans regaining posi
tions they held before they started the rush of a million and a half men on Paris,
particularly should they succeed in recouping any portion of their losses.
Paris, Sept. 14.—-The retreat of the armies of Generals Von Kluck and Von
Buelow continued at last accounts, with considerable rapidity. The only official com-
Germans in their attempt to resist our
"Our vigorous retaking of the of
fensive has determined the success.
Every officer, subaltern and soldier
has responded to my call. All merit

In making the above message pub
lic General Gallieni added this note:
"The military governor of Paris is
happy to bring this telegram to the
knowledge of the troops under his
command. He adds his own felicita
tions to the army of Paris, part it had
in the operations.
"He acilitates also the troops of the
entrenched camps upon the efforts
which they had made during this pe
riod and which efforts should continue
without relation.

London, Sept. 14.—A dispatch to

Who hadcrossrotBelnver Aiisite. ^he wherMbouts of thfe Germans is nSt revved,
but it is evident that they do not intehd io mdke a sta^d 6n the line from Kheimfe to
Soissons, and it is hardly likely, it is thought here, that they will halt their retreat
before reaching Belgium. They have already made two-thirds of the distance from
Provins, in the department of Seine-Et-Marne, to the frontier.
Heavy rains Saturday and Sunday did not facilitate the movement of the fa
mous 420-Milimetre Mortars, that were to reduce Paris, and which require 40 horses
to draw them.
The armies of Generals Van Hausen and Prince of Wuertemberg, which con
stitute the center, seem to be headed toward Rethel, Mezieres, though part of this
force is reported as still resisting at the south end of the forest of Argonne. It is re
ported that the armies of the crown prince, Prince of Bavaria and General Von
Heeringen, have been forced across the frontier and that the entire territory of
French Lorraine has been liberated. This disposition of the German armies, if con
firmed, makes another concentration in France, as suggested by certain critics, im
possible. It leaves Generals Von Kluck and Von Buelow hotly pursued by the al
lies, menaced by an enveloping movement on the left, without hope of reinforce
ments except perhaps from 60,000 German troops which occupy Belgium. The lat
est news from Belgium, however, indicates there is no probability of German troona
there being able to give any assistance whatever.
