Oerman military authorities assort that
this victory is of large strategic Im
portance. The broad plain north of Ptry
does not afford effective, opportunities
for defensive operations so that the Rus

the only other opportunity of making a
defense before Lemherg would be In the

the capture of three, forts near Trsemysl
and tho victory at Ptry Indicate the
complete expulsion of the Russians from

discuss the Roumanian not. It la un
derstood that Roumanla's demands will
be refused. The relatione between the
two countries already are strained.
Trof. Basllesco, a Roumanian deputy,
in an article in the Geneva Journal, esti
mates that the Roumanian army has
now 1,010,000 men perfectly equipped,
which will present a problem on a new
