PETROGRAD, Sept. 15.-(Speclal Cable
gram to New York World and Omaha
Bee.) German reinforcements, rushed to
th reacue of the defeated Austrian
armiea, have blocked the leuaaiun advance
and forced a renewa, of the terrific fight
ing west of Lemberg. The czar's com
manders are naving to hold their lines
while moving up reinforcements in an ef
fort to crush the Austro-Gcrman allies,
who are reported reorganized and rclh
aplrlted by German leadership.
The Russians have been following up
the Austrlana. who have had to retreat
to the edge of the marshy country. But
between Lemberg and Przemysl the Rus
sian pursuit Is now checked, snd heavy,
stubborn fighting has been In progress

The Austrian defense here Is strength

strategically, the position remalna much
the same and equally adverse to the Aus-tro-German
allies, but Instead of the Rus
sians on the line extending from Rawa
Ruska to the Dnelster, breaking through
and attacking the rear of the Austro
Gtrman armies operating toward Lublin
the position la reversed.
The Russians pursuing from the north
are rapidly approaching the rear of the
Austro-Gertnan forces, facing eastward.
Rid of Slow Klementa.
Presumably the strength of the Aus
trian defense Is due, not only to strong
reinforcements, Including the German
corps, but also to the fact that probably
the Austrian armies operating here have
by this time purged off their non-Ger-manlo
elements. The discontented PlaV'
regiments of various nationalities have
seised every available opportunity to give
themselves up as prlBonera to the -flrat
Russians they could meet.
Indeed, the Auntrlana have been com
pelled before giving battle to so order
their line that Austrian, Czech, Croate,

that the German veterans from the fields
