Huns Massed Many Warships, but Russ- ians Beat Them Force Still Pressing Toward Seaport London, Aug. military operations in Russian Kurland have hardly reached the decisive stage, the Germans who have been smashing their way to- ward Riga have been checked. Almost simultaneously a Ger- man warship which at- terr.pted to seize the Gulf of Riga and attain a strategic position to assist the troops ashore were dis- persed and damaged. The assemblage of Ge'rman craft was the largest of any en- gaged in the naval actions of the war thus far, with the tion of the Allied squadron at the Dardanelles. It nosed its way towards Riga, much after the manner of the British ships ranged off the Bel- gian coast last fall. The fact that the German war- ships were forced to retire Is a source of satisfaction to the Bri- tish press, which finds encour- agement In the resistance of the Russians In this northeastern the- atre, in contrast to their retire- ment elsewhere.
