PBTROGRAD, Sept. 23,
Breslau, In Sllesln, 190 miles from Ber
lin, Is now believed to be the main Rus
sian objective. Cracow, which the Rus
sians' northern column Is nearlng, will
be lnvcste-1 by a large army, following
the precedent set nt Przemysl. A million
men nrc reported engaged in this move
ment. Tho northern column has assaulted
Tarnow and a pitched battle Is now In
progress there. The Austrlans are put
ting up a strong resistance but they are
greatly outnumbered. With Tarnow In
possession of tho Russians the last ob
staclo In the way of the slcgo of Cracow
will have been lemoved. Dumbrlcko, a
railroad station on tho way to Tarnow,
has already been captured.
It Is now apparent that the movement
through Gallcla Is the main offensive
of tho Russian nrmy. It developed to
day that Grand Duke Nicholas, the commander-in-chief,
Is with the forces there,
which number more than 1,000,000 men.
Tho armies, proceeding along tho
parallel lines of railway, are moving
rapidly westward. With all the six
Carpathian passes occupied by Russian
troops nnd with strong forces on tin
Hungarian plains Just south of theso
points all dnnger of a possible flanking
movement has been avoided. Conse
quently there is now nothing to retard
The pursuit by tho Russians of the
Austrian army In Gallcla Is compared by
the mllltaly exports here with General
Kutozoff's pursuit of Napoleon's army
from Moscow In 1812, nnd General Grant's
hairjlng chnse of Lee's army in tho
civil war In 1805.
The victorious Russian forces have al
ready traversed more than half of the
route from Przemysl to Cracow and the
latter Is now only four days' march dis
tant. Tho northern Russian column Is mov
ing much more rapidly than the south
ern one. This is believed here to Indi
cate they expect the Austrian rctient,

will bo able to cut off their retreat.

After a .seveie bombardment, the Ger

miles south of this city, according to
an oincinivannounccment given out today
by the War Office.
