Galacla and Russian Poland 14.500
Russian prisoners had been captured.
It also stated that Rlxty-nine cannon
and 25 6 machine guns had been taken
from the Russians and that the vic
torious Austrian-German forces, con
tinuing their advance eastward In
Galacla, are now approaching the
fortress of Przemyel.
Victory In West.
The statement follows:
"Western theater: East of Ypies we
took another point of vantage from the
enemy. In the afternoon strong French
a I tacks on our front from Ablaln to
Nenvllle were repulse.! with very heavy
losses to the enemy. The vlllige of
Careney and the western part of Ab
laln, which are for the greater part In
cluded In the territory held by the
French, as the result o their occupa
tion of our foremost trenches, between
Nenvllle and Careney, were, however,
evacuated last nU?ht. Unfortunately on
this occasion, a nunilier of our brave
men and much material gain were lost.
"French attempts to recapture a sec
tion of their trenches, which wo took
from them northwest of Berry-Au-Bac,
In the woods southeast cf Nil-Aux-Bois,
were without success.
"After strong artillery preparation
the enemy attacked our positions be
tween the Meuse and the Moaelle last
msht. At Oroyp re Cannes, they suo
ceded In pentetrattng a section of our
foremost trenches, stretching over a
width of 1M to 0 meters. After bitter
hand-to-hand fighting our positions were
again cleared of all Frenchmen. A num
ber of prisoners remained In our hands.
"Two French blockhouses on the west
ern slopea of . Hartmens-Wellerkopf were
destroyed b your fire. .
'Eastern theater: The situation la the
same. The battle of Beawle (Russian
Poland) Is still undecided;" 'v
"Southeastern theater:. The army under
General von .Maekensen In the course et
Its pursuit of the .Russians, reached X
terday the neighborhood of Subleea on
the lower Wlsloka and Kolbuesowa, the
Russians also retreating under the pres
sure of this advance from their positions
north of the Vistula. In this section the
troops under General Woyrech, closely
following the enemy, penetrated as far
as the region northwest of Klelce.
Conquers Two lIUls.
"In the Carpathians Austro-Hungarlan
and German troops undor General Von
IJnslngen conquered the hills east of the
upper Stry and took 8,860 men prisoners,
as well as capturing six machine guns.
"At the present moment, while the
armies under General von Mackensen are.
approaching the Prsemysl fortress and
the lower San. it Is poealble to form an
approximate idea of the booty taken. In
the battles of Tarnow and Oorlioe and
to the battles during the pursuit of these
armies, we have so far fnkan 108,800 Rus
sians prisoners, sixty-nine cannon and
twenty-five machine guns. In these flg
urea the booty taken by the allied troop
fighting In the Carpatlans and north of
the Vistula la not Included. This amounts
to a fuither 60,000 prisoners."
