IUssIan tioops have been landed at
oond to reinforce the nllled French and
British forces in France. They are
marching southeast from 03tcnd to at
tack the right wings of the German
army of Invasion.
The i waer of Russians landed on thn
coast Is vAtlously estimated at from 170,
000 to'3M,00q men.
(The movement of thN forco of Rus
sians undoubtedly explains the rapid re
treat of tho German right wing and tho
sending of a now CJorman army to France
by way of Helglum.)
The Russians that, arrived at Ostend
came from Kngland whither they wore
brought by tho llnors Aqultanla and
Oceanic and the Union Castle tleet from
Archanscl. They Included Cossaiks and
Infantry, part of the best flghtei3 of tho
ltusslan nrmy.
Regiment after regiment of the Rsuslans
were landed In England, they were
brought to Ostend ftom Southampton In
smaller vessels. A long line of ii steam
ers was engaged In carrying off these
It was while the Aqultanla was bring
ing the Russians from Archangel to Kng
the collision with the steamship Canadian,
of the Lyland Line. She was Meumlntf
fcoiitli of the liish tie i vrith ni: her lights
when she hit the Canadian, barely dam
aging that boat and causing a panic.
The Cuuard liner Cusonla, which was
also engaged In the transportation of Rus
sian troops, was fortunately ilosu by,
and stood by both disabled vebsels until
tliey could both enter the Mersey River.
