And. like the automobile manufactur

LONDON, Aug. 12. Tha Baltic
flank of tha German armies, under'
Field Marshal Von Hlndennurg. has
virtually attained the banks of the
river Dvlna, between Riga and
Dvlnsk, with Petrograd lesg than 300
milea away in a direct line.
Thence southward the line sweeps
west, with the Russian fortress of
Kovno still holding out, but next
week may see a great battle on the
road toward the Russian capital.
The second line of derense upon
which tha Russians proposed to fall
back after abandoning Warsaw has
all the appearances of having been
rendered untenable, and the British
and Russian press is beginning to see
In the Austro-Oerman plan an ambi
tious plunge deeper Into Russia, with
Petrograd as the goal.
In the meantime the Russian rear
guards are fighting desperately, espe
cially In the critical Dvlna region and at
Kovno, to capture which the Germans
are making a terrifia sacrifice of men.
It seems plain now tha Oermans pur
pose no great demonstration In the west,
but Intend rather to press to the utmost
their so far brilliantly successful Russian
campaign on the theory that conditions
In France and Belgium are such that
neither the French nor the British Im
mediately will attempt a general of
fensive. During the lull In activity on the front
In France snd Belgium the British puhllo
is looking to the Dardanelles to bring th
relief Ruanda so bsdly neads. though the
task of opening the straits remains a
difficult problem, which somo tlilnk msy
only be solved by a change In the Balkan
situation. Both Germany and the entento
powers are exerting the hsrdest pressure
on Bulgaria, as that country Is consid
ered to be the key to the situation.

Aug. 11) Tha Novoe Vremya. discussing
today ths theory that Petrograd is tho
real objective of the German offensive,
says: -. .......
"There Is an enormous difference be
tween the war of Mil and the present
conflict. The Germans ere hurling
sgalnot the Russian foroes, equivalent to
seven such Invasions as that of Napoleo i
and supported by the latest technical ap
pliances, whereas, In lSli. ths Russian
army In ths latter respect wss fully on a
par with ths French.
'The Germans are Infinitely better
posted ss to the position of Russia than
Napoleon, and they are incapable of re-
jgardtng Moscow ss the key to the empire.
(They know that Petrograd Is the political
center and it is only half an far from
Riga as Moscow.
"It Is only a nlgtit-s railway Journey
between Riga and Petrograd, and the dis
tance over good roads snd' two lines of
railways do not offer Insuperable difficul
ties. This is no second war of 1813, but
something far more serious."
The Rsch advises the population of
Petrograd that air raids on the capital
are likely in the near future, snd that a
hostile cavalry force may possibly get
near tha capital. It saws, however, that
there Is on fear of anything further at
