LETKBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1914 NUMBER 160 PREDICT GERMANS WILL SOON BE OUTW FRANCE RUSSIANS TO USE MINES AGAINST GEPIANS IN VISTULA IN CRfTIGAL POSITION Petrewrad, Oct. failure of the German tac- tics of a rapid offensive against the Vistula has left them in a difficult position. They are twenty-seven miles fur- ther, back than on Tuesday and the position to they have-been thrown back is hopeless as a base for cavalry is a great clement, because of the in- sufficiency of water. Everything points to the fact that the repulse of their vanguard on Tuesday following their failure to get near the bridge of Ivangorod amounts to a disaster from strategical point of view. To add to their discomfiture the Russians defeated the Austrian army defending Przemysl.
