HEAVY LOSSES IlEPOUTED.
Punplcmenting previous announcements
of tho fall of Jnroslaw, the following
statement was Issued at the War OfTlco
On September 21 tho Russian troops
took by storm tho fortification of Jar
uslnw on tho right bank of the river
San. They took twenty cannon, oven
though tho enemy offered heavy ic
Mslnncc, and blew up the bridge over
The Russian cavalry Is pursuing the
retreating Austrian rear glial d and Is
inflicting heavy losses, although the
Austrlans destroyed many bridges.
Every day the number of prisoners
and seized cannons Increase. The de
moralization of tho enemy is shown
by tho pillaging and the panicky re
treat. Prisoners assert thnt the ma
jority of their officers are killed or
missing and thnt the soldiers feel the
loss keenly. The newly formed Hus
lnii regiments have co-ercd them
selves with glory, lighting side by
side with the veterans.
The Austrian troops have been rein
forced by largo forces of Geimnns. nnd
the combined armlts are offering a des
perate resistance, but tho Russians are
advancing steadily, tho General Staff
It Is expected that r few days must
elapse before a general battle ensues.
The Russians nro occupying Rzoszow
as their base, and troops are being rushed
to that point from Jnroslaw. while the
big siege guns nro keeping up an un
ceasing bombardment of Pizcmysl.
PRZEMYSI, INVESTMENT COMPLETE.
That tho Russian General Staff believes
no danger may be nntlclpatid from the
garrison of Przemysl Is shown by tho
lnpld ndvance westward from Jnroslaw.
Tho Investment of Przemysl Is complete
and this has cut the Austrian army off
from one of its main supply stations.

Terrific rainstorms nrc flooding the
rivers of western Gallcla, according to a

LOYAL TO BRITAIN
READY FOR SERVICE
Millionaire, Leader of East
Declares India's Hope Is
LONDON, Sept. 21.
"Germany mado a niljstako about India
ns It did about Ireland, and anybody
who counts on India to bo false to Eng.
land will como a cropper."
In thesf) words his Highness the Aga
Khan, the recognized temporal leader
of 60,000,000 of East Indian Mohamme
dans, sums tip for tho World corre
spondent the Indian Empire's status In
the world's war,
Tho Aga Khan hns directed tho
Khoja Moslems, who alone number sv
crnl millions, and Of whom he Is th
spiritual as well as tho temporal head,
to placo their personal services and re
sources nt tho disposal of tho Govern
ment, nnd has volunteered to servo him
self ns a private In nny regiment of
infantry of tho Indian expeditionary
Tho Aga Khan laughed heartily orer
the suggestion that tho Germanlstlo
propngnnda might undermine tho loyalty
of Gient Britain's Indian subjects. He
"Many of my fellow countrymen have
boon In Africa and have seen tho Ger
man administration In tho German East
nnd Southwest African colonics. They
know what Gormnnlzatlon of India would
mean, nnd they know, too, that if Eng
land wore driven out of India, Germany,
should she be successful In this war,
would step In. The thinking element
among Indians of nil clnsses realize that
our country, divided ns It Is Into hun
dreds of principalities, each inclined to
bo, Jealous of tho others, could not hops
to stand alone, even if British rule wero
GERMAN PURPOSE KNOWN.
"Germany's twofold purpose In striv
ing to create dissension in India U first
to give trouble to England, which might
cost her victory in the war; second, to
seize India ns part of the Kaiser's drt im
of world empire.
"This scheme is ns 'well known
India as at Iicrlln. India will need -n
nssistanco from England to frustrate i,
because tho Indians fully comprehend tiu
peril of being crushed beneath the mailed
fist of Prussian militarism."
Tho Aga Khan's manner became nie i
grave as he continued:
"After nil, the one hope of India i
In the King and Emperor and his (i -eminent.
Thore can be no united liu i
until Enalnnd hns dished her work i f
knitting together Into one strong natle-i
the confusing Jumblo of races, religions
and castes sho has governed so au.
cessfully for IM years.
"An apt comparison Is Amerlcm
domination of tho Philippines. I! t
there exist now between England a. I
India affections and sentiments nnsli ;
from their long community of interer i
which aie not yet found between Fili
pinos and Americans.
RI.AMES GERMAN VIEWPOINT.
"Such feeling I bollevo to be Incom
prehensible to the Germans. It seems
lo mo they totally lack a sense of pro
portion, arising from a sympathet! un
derstanding of the needs of another
people. It Is Incomprehensible to them
that Belgium should have resisted their
ndvance Into France. Apparently they
fail utterly to understand tho feellnst
that, for Instance, would actuate an
American If an alien nation attempted
lo send an army through the United
States to attack Canada.
"Personally, my antipathy is not to
waul tho German people, who possesi
many fine qualities, but against thi
Prusslnn school of nornhardls, Nletz
sches nnd tho Kaiser's General Staff
o school designed basically for tin
crushing of liberalism and Independence
of nny kind, whether manifested In
Germany or abroad."
"Will Indian troops be nble to stand
against the German army, considering
they have never before been permitteJ
to fight white men?"
"I think so." the Aga Khan replied
with n quiet smile. "If need bo there
can be TOO.OoO or 7,000,000 that wouldn't
be a great number to offor from our
Mw.OflO.no) population. No. Despite the
effusions from Willielmslrasse. you may
i est assured that there is not the slight
est doubt us to India's loyalty to England."
