FETROORAD. Oct. 11. -The following

'The combat on the East Prussian fron

"In several passes between Ivangorod I
snd Bondomlr, artillery battles are oc- j
curring with the enemy, which is ap- j

Secrery irfmrj, I
An official Russian communication is
sued recently states that in view of the
importance of the coming battle and the
charged disposition of the Russian forces,
secrecy is necessary lu regard to military
operations. Therefore the only posslblo
remark is that the drawing lit of the
Russian forces from the north and south
is to meet tlia attempted Austro-German
advance into Poland.
The victorious army of General Rennen
kampff, having driven buck the Germans
from the region of Augustowo as far as
Lyck and I'rostken. which is now In the
possession of the Russians, has accom
plished Its purpose and is now free to
send part of the troops southward. At
the same time, the Cossacks pouring into
Hungary have now changed their objec
tive. The Russian troops are now acting ex
clusively on the offensive in Poland. The
attempted advance of the Germans in
this country demands a massing of the
Muscovite forces along the Hoe from
Uubin to Warsaw and Lembcrg. where
the indications are that the Russian of
fensive is already In progress. Mean
while, no further action is expected to the
north of Klalystok, -where the Russian
army is contented with having repulsed
the Germans as far as necessary.
Russian information Is that following
the taking of Antwerp by the Germans
the army thus tet free will proceed Im
mediately to the Russian frontier, while
in the western theater of war the Ger
