Need Port as Winter Quarters and Base for their March on Petrograd in Checked in Galicia London, Sept. immediate objective of Die Austro-German cam- paign In Russia becomes clearer with growing indications that the need the Baltic port of Riga, not only as a base for operations in the dlrtfr tion of Petrogrsd, but as winter In case an sttempt to reach the .Russian capital should be postponed until next spring. Field Marshall Von Hiridenburg isr experiencing great difficulty in bridging portions of the Dvina held by the Germans. The current of the river is too 'swift for construction of pontoon bridges under Russian artillery fire. As the rainy season comes on it .will be more difficult for the to bring, up supplies for their advance forces and consequently the seizure of Riga as a base becomes more vital to the success of Von Hindanburfl'a pjans. The urgent. necessity of capturing Riga is indicated in an army order which a Paris newspaper-credits to General Von Buelow. The General ex- erts his troops once more to a great effort to capture the port, making It their winter home preparatory to .marching on Petrograd next Along other sectors of" the eastern front the impetus of the German rush has been considerably checked. Fierce counter by.the Russians have brought the advance along the Gallcian border almost to a standstill.
