LONDON, Sept. 4. The British
public has turned hopeful eyes to
ward the east, where the triumph
of Russian arms in the Austrian
province of Oalicia has been amply
confirmed. In addition to the battle
of Lemberg, in which the flower of
six Austrian army corps were de

been a simultaneous victory. at To

has the Austrian offensive through Rus
sian Poland, destined to effect a junction
with German army corps from east Prus

severe that Gallcia Is virtually In the
control of the Russians.
Lemberg- Is not only the capital of an
enormous territory, Slavic in Us sm

great strategic value, being tbo center
of eight railroads. If the Russian sue

Austrian will be cleared out of Russian
Poland within a few days.
If the official reports of tha Russian
surceases in Ualtcla are anywhere near
correct. It is scarcely possible to exag

If the Austrian are as badly crushed In
Oalicia as the Russian reports would
