GAINS IN FIGHT
Offioial Report of the Capture of s
Tactical Point is the Cause
of Great Rejoicing by
People ln London.
RUSSIANS ARE MAKING STANI
Czar' Forces Hold Von Hindenbur?
and Make Local Gains in Vi
cinity of Vilna.
GAIICIAN SITUATION REVERSE!
LONDON, Sept 2. The British
publlo ha been greatly cheered by
the reralon of the recent heavy fight
ing at the Dardanelles contained in
the official report received last night
from General Sir Ian Hamilton, th
British commander-in-chief. Thli
report has been awaited eagerly la
view of the assertions of Constanti
nople that the Allies had been re
pulsed with heavy losses.
8ir lan claims that his forces op
erating on the northern section of
the line captured an Important tac
tical point commanding the Duvuk
Anfarta valley to the oast and north,
aa well as making an appreciable
gain along the Australasian front.
If the British colonials now dominate
Anafarta, their guns should have a clear
field to fire upon one of the main Turk-
I Ish supply roads leadlna toward Achl
Baba. The Turks, however, have an al-
leraauve une or communication with this
pan or ineir rroni. Constantinople has
admitted no advance on the part of the
Oalns Near Tllaa.
The Russians are developing unexpected
strength In the north, where they state
they are not only holding Field Marshal
von Hlndeburg, but have gained a local
suooess near Vllna. Various ohanges
have been made in the Russian command,
the most Important being the return of
General Russky to the leadership of the
Berlin wireless reports, which usually
are a day or two In advance of the
Petrograd official eommunUatlon, an
nounce a reversal In the Qalloian situa
tion, aa the result of a victorious assault
on the Russians north of Z bo row.
The English press is Interested keenly
In the Oerman promise ot a change of
tactics ln submarine' war fare and at
taches oonsuderable significance to the
' news that Admiral von Tlrplts Is to have
a vacation. This la interpreted as Indicat
ing that Chancellor von Bethmann-Holl-
, ment oa the progress of hostilities whloh
"Fighting with hand grenades occurred
in the course of the night In the vicinity
of Bouches. There were several artillery
; engagements In the sector of NeuvlUe,
I mn- T? nu
the Vosges fighting with bombs
occurred at Bcbratsmannele."
