VOL, LXI, NO, 62 RENO, NEVADA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH PRICE FIVE CENTS Russian Forces Engaged in Of- fensive Movement Along Vir- tually Whole Eastern Front and Germans Forced Back DESPERATE FIGHTING ACCOMPANIES MOVE Large Reinforcements Aid Plan to Clear Poland Territory of Kaiser's Hosts; Fighting in the Carpathians Very Heavy LONDON, March 2, p. The Russian armies are now engaged in battles along virtually the whole eastern front. In North Poland, hav- ing been enabled to resume the -of- fensive by means of large reinforce- ments, they arc slowly pushing the Germans buck to the East. Prussian frontier. In the Carpathians and in Kastern Gaiicia they have been en- raged for .several days in resisting tierce and repeated attacks by the Auctrians. Turn Backs on Kussbuis Except in front of the fortress of Ossowetx. which they are still boin- bflarding with their heavy guns, the Germans, according to the- Russian official reports, have turned their backs upon the Russian their first objective when they emerg- ed from East Prussia on the heels of' the retreating Russians a .short time ago. In some places, however, they a.re fighting stubborn rear guard actions, which have led to close and severe fighting. Fish tins In Carpathians Tho .Russian offensive extends across Poland to the lower Vistula. where the Russian troops are holding back the Germans who threatened their lines south of the river. For the moment, however, the Carpathians is the scene of the heaviest fighting. The Austrians, who despite their re- peated defeats and heavy losses in men and guns, seem to have a never- ending source of supply, have return- ed to tho offensive and with the aid of large artillery reinforcements have delivered a vigorous attack between the Ondawa and San rivers. Ksnines Strewn With This, according to the Russian ac- count, was without any result, but Austrian headquarters say that it will in time have its effect. The battle continued all clay Sun- tifiy and when it was ended the slopes of the mountains and the ravines were strewn with dead. At other points along the mountain ranges similar at- tacks were delivered and most desper- ate fighting occurred. This was es- pecially so on the hill near Koziou- which the Austro-Germans have been trying for weeks to capture, as it stands in the way of their invasion of Eastern Gaiicia. Austrians Forced to Retire Still further to thr east, near the town of Stanislau, which once again is reported to be in Russian hands, the armies have met and the Russians declare that the Austrians have been forced to retire. Despite all this heavy fighting in the east, the Germans are reported io be sending strong reinforcements to the west for a new attempt which they are to make to break through the al- lies' lines in France and Flanders. Tho people of the towns of Belgium have been warned to prepare to bil- let a large number of German soldiers, which can mean nothing else than that Germany is making preparations for another great effort. Canadians Cupture German Trench The troops in-the trenches are not altogether allowing the grass to grow under their feet. The British, follow- ing the example of the Belgians, have shown some activity and have captur- ed a. German trench near lia Basset the credit for this going to the men of Princess Patricia's Light Infantry, the first Canadians to reach the front, have been 3n at least two previ- ous engagements. LONDON, March 3, a. Renter dispatchvfrom Chrlstiania says that owing to the British blockade the Bergenske and Nordenfleldskc steamship companies have suspended al! tellings for Hamburg and substi- services to Luebeck, Germany.
