BERLIN, Oct. 17.-Vla The Hague and
London.) Preparations are under way
for a glgSntio battle In the eastern
arena of the war, where Austrian and
Oennan armies have taken positions
along the river Vistula and the river Ban,
and are ready for eventualltlea The re
taking of Praemysl, as announced from
Austrian sources has permitted the un
folding of ths power of the Austrlans
from the direction of Lemberg, and their
advance In the southern Carpathian
mountalna Is menacing the extreme loft
wing of the Russians.
Desperate fighting already la going on
along the center of the two armies on
the banks of the Vistula. This action
has been In a measure delayed owing to
the bad condition of the roads In south
ern Poland and the presence of sections
of swampy land. This condition has
made necessary detours on the part of

To challenge this argument, however. Is
the fact that significant developments
are said to be taking place near Lille.
The resistance of the allies there to re
peated unsuccessful attacks by the enemy
has given them great encouragement.
' Mistakes of Generals.
General Ckerfils. discussing In an ar
ticle published today some of the mistakes
made by the French and the Germans.
says the forts of Rheims were considered
indefensible, and consequently disarmed
and abandoned. The Germana have In
stalled themselves In this position and
for a month the French have been held
In check before these fortifications. "This
comparison demanda an explanation,"
General Cherflls goes on. "In the first
plaoe, there fl only a slight difference be
tween the strength of siege artillery and
that ef large field cannon. While the
forty-two centimeter guns have proved
conquerors of modern forts, earthworks
well defended and supported by heavy
field guns of large caliber are capable of
resisting their assaults for weeks. We can
derive a lesson from .these facts for the
rest of the campaign.
"One regrettable mistake was shown In
our abandonment of the forts of Brimont
and Nogent The Germana certainly
would not have brought against these
forts tbelr heavy artillery liberated by the
fall of Maubeuge. They utilised this ar
tillery against Antwerp.
The Germans made a mistake In leav
ing In Belgium certain army corps which
would have been most useful if they had
used them immediately against ua. Now
they come too lata"
