London, Sept. 17.-Baku, in traits Caucasia, has been evacuated by thu Brit lab who have withdrawn their forces to north Persia. The evacuation was made necessary,' It 1� stated, because of tho lack of steadiness on the part of tho Armenian troops when they were attacked by the Turks during August. By the end of the month it was realized that tho co-operation of the local government and its forces would not be satisfactorily effective to justify the retention of (he town by tho British In tho face of tho numbers ths enemy could collect. On Sept. 10, the evacuation was definitely derided upon, but on tho same day the Turks again attacked and tho allies of the British, reports state. agalsWailed to co-operate. Tho result wis that the Royal WBrwickshlree had to cover a Rutso-Armentau retirement and it is feared that this force lost heavily. A small force of Russians urrived at Baku on Sept. 9, to reinforce tho British. This, with the inactivity of the enemy, tended to improve the morale of the force allied with the British, strengthening their wish to hold the towu. They induce!
