ARMIES LOCKED FOR
DECISIVE STRUGGLE SO,OOO Mea Hurled by Hindeaburg at Vistula-Warthe One and 900,000 Russians Lined up to Halt German March on Poland’s Capital - BATTLE FOR NORTH SEA COAST BECOMES AN ARTILLERY DUEL Paris. —The onfall of winter ha: a limbed the energy of AUie3 and Ger wans (a Belgium and northern France Snow_ is falling. Gales from the *ea have driven tidewater far- inland, widening the inundated district. In quiry operations are well-nigh im possible. Welt her side can do more than ham mer the other with big guns. Two big battles are being fought in Poland and a third conflict of vast importance’continues in East Prussia. Of three battles ithe one now at its Wight between the Vistula and Wart he rivers is exciting the greatest interest. Decisive Battle. The G-ea-inans, it is believed, have brought up by -their line of strategic railways in Posen and Silesia at least 500,000. men to reinforce General von Hindenburg in an effort to break the Russian line at this point. Weather conditions, the frozen ground and the situation of the bat tlefield. favor a really decisive battle to a - degree which has not existed on any other field of the present war. Tho other battle in Poland is tak ing place - on the Cracow-Czemstochowa front, and both the Russians and the Germans eay it is proceeding satis factorily for them. In Bast Prussia the Russian ad vance is moving slowly through the country surrounding the Mazurian Bakes, which is difficult of passage. Russians Seize Passes. In Galicia the Russians are go-in steadily westward and at the sam rime are seizing the passes of th Carpathians. fa the western theatre of operation ft Is officially announced that the Gei mans were forced to abandon heav; guns because of the spreading waters Wear Ramscapelle the Allies salvage! two large mortars which" the German had been unable to remove. Both sides have lost artillery an< motor cars since the flood changer ♦he character of operations. Bad weather has increased the ex (fcaustion of the troops and there is wiudh Illness in the trenches. The Gormans have made a new ef fort to extend the wedge they have driven between Verdun and Toul at St.. Mihiiel on the Meuse. French Advance. The French'appear to have antici pated Uf-e plan to have advanced a lit tle from the north and south of their Mne, which forms three parts of a circle around St: Mlhiei. Western part of the village of Chau ▼oncourt, on the west bank of the Meuse. *’or th,e time being this region is a centre of interest. The French are making desperate efforts to close their lines east of St. Mlhiei and thereby ut off a large German force. The Germans are trying a3 desperately to keep open the only breach they have made in the barrier of fortresses. The operations I to the north and east are closely connected with the fighting around St. Mlhiei. The Ger mans in the Argonne are attempting to break the French line, which bars their connection with the German line on tho heights of the left bank of the Meuse, and three attacks deliv ered by them were repulsed. Germans’ Ruse in East Halted, Russians Say Vn Hindenburg's Army Checked In One Area of Mighty Battle. London.—‘Wftile von Hindenberg’s mighty army, reinforced by 500,000 men, lias been driving the Russians hack from Lenczyca a dozen miles in the. direction of Lowlcz, an important smUroad town but 40 miles from War saw, the. German force that defeated the Russians on the Vistula below SHock, has continued to advance, so that the vanguards of the two forces form the point of a wedge being slow ly driveu toward Warsaw. Reinforcements are being rushed up on hoth-skies and the Russians are said to have 900,000 men along the front between the Vistula and the Warthe, while the German invaders are nearly as numerous. The Russian General Staff asserts 4hat the Germans were defeated in one area of the great battle In Po land. It seems apparent that the Russians have halted their retreat and are making a vigorous resistance be tween the Warthe and Vistula rivers.

London.—With the addition of Tur key and Portugal to the ranks of the the belligerents the area of hostilities has been extended to approximately 58 per cent, of the land surface of the globe, aud about 56 per cent, of the total population of the earth must be classed as technically belligerent, says the London Daily Chronicle.
