FRENCH SEIZED TOWN Steinbach in Alsace Fell into Their Hands To-day After Desperate Fighting for Several Days, According to Admission by the Ger mans ALSO TOOK HEIGHTS AND THEN LOST THEM Germans Captured Bolimow in Advance on Warsaw, but Further Progress Said ' by Russians to Have Been Checked Comparatively Quiet in West Berlin, via wireless to London, Jan. 4, 4 p. m. Steinbach, the Alsatian town on the heights between Thann and Seen heim, for which desperate fighting has been going on for several days, was offi cially admitted by the German army headquarters in a statement to-day to have been captured by the French. The French also took possession of the heights to the west of Seenheim, but the Ger mans in a counter attack with the bay onet succeeded in regaining the position. Violent fighting is in progress along the eastern battle front, leading at points to desperate hand to hand en counters. The official Russian statement aliows that after capturing Bolimow, the Germans attempted to push on to the northeast in the direction of Warsaw, about 30 miles away. This movement marked the renewal of the German of fensive toward the Polish capital after a period of comparative inactivity, but their advance in this direction is said to have been repulsed with large losses. A remarkable night battle on the bank of the Bzura river is described in the Russian communication, which says that the German forces were permitted to cross the river unmolested and were then attacked with bayonet without the fir ing of a shot.. It is asserted that several hundred Germans were killed and the re mainder surrendered. . In other campaigns on Europe's battle fields, bo essential changes are reported. In the Trans-Caucasian region' the Turks and Russians are enjaged in fierce strug gles, but the reports frou Pctrograd and from Constantinople concerning the out come are at complete variance. run.

To night the corridors of the hotels will pre sent an animated appearance with the prospective lawmakers holding forth with the usual flow of gossip which pre cedes the opening of the legislature. Interest centers principally in the elec tion of speaker for the House of Repre sentatives, and it is conceded that the fight for the leadership of the lower branch of the legislature lies between Judge J. f. Weeks of Middlebury and Stanley C. Wilson, chairman of the Re publican state committee.
