Military observers do not hesitate to say that' tho objective of the Germans is the port of Riga, which they desire to capture as winter head quarters and I as a base for any operations they j may expect to make towards Petro-1 grad. in the spring. The Baltic port j is now practically Isolated, and its j capture is said to be close at hand, j In Gahcia, thc Russians are said j to have checked the impetus of the j Austro-German advance, toy means: of fierce counter attacks. i All indicaiions point to the belief that Germany has already 'There is a form of compulsion from which no mini can guard him- self; in tho aftor years his con- science will compel him to review his decision in tho light of events, and he will bo bound to answer.
