AND CARGO WAS FOR HOLLAND RUSSIA CLAIMS GAINS IN EAST French Report Says They Have Added Materially to Terri tory in Woe vre. IXJNDOX. April I-*.-Although not yet certain that a German submarine waj responsible for the slnklnjg'of thc Dutch steamer Katwyk off North Hinder Lightship last night tho ves sel's destruction aroused indignation of thc Dutch people, as evidenced by editorials in Holland newspapers. Thc Katwyk, loaded with grain from baltimore, consigned to the Dutch government, is reported to have been at anchor and flying the Dutch flag when thc explosion sent her to the bottom. Dutch napers innis* that no mistake could have been made, and "if a Ger man submarine actually torpedoed the steamer, we must expect that tho Germar government, will, without loss of time, be made responsible for the severe violation* of Hie rights Of neu trals." The fact that the sinking of the Katwyk came close on theGeruiau seizure of four Dutch trawlers has heightened the feeling of the Hol landers. The Russians are said to be con tinuing their efforts to force the Aua tro-Gcrman armlos out of the Car path laos and having taken the western passes, are bonding their efforts on an uttcmpt to t?ttfitt?r? Uzsok Pass and the heights in thc northeast. Petrograd claim i steady progress, despite the Austro-German efforts to outflank them, but the Austro-Ger mans insls tthat recent fighting has been in their favor and they captured another tinportaut height northwest cf Uzsck. The french have apparently reviv ed their offensive in Woevre. and .claim to have added materially to thc ground previously gained, which would bring them a step nearer the main objectiv?, the removal of tVe German wedge which bends their linc at- St. .Mlhlel.
