fpFHCIAL WAR REPORTS
Tn the western theatre of war, In
the dUhes of Nleuporl nnd southeast
of Ypres, artillery combats at;e continuing-.
The enemy's batteries have
directed an extremely strong fire on
Wettende, which tney will soon en
tirely destroy. The enemy's torpedcf
boats on the conat disappeared as toon
as they received our fire.
In the continuation of Activities on
January S our troops again attacked
the heights of Vreuny nmt elenred the
plain of the enemy. In a pouring rain,
sodden clay trench after trench was
stormed until after dark the enemy
had been driven back to the border
of the plain. We took It offlcerw, 1130
men, four cannon, four maohlne guns
and and ono searchlight. This bril
liant feat of arms by our ttoops was
accomplished under the very eyes of
the Uppermost war lord.
Northeast of Chalons the French
again attacked yesterday morning and
afternoon. Strong forces, vhlch at
Perthes penetrated our tronchea and
wore repulsed, counter attacked and
were driven back with heavy tosses
We took 1(0 prisoners In the Argonne.
In tho Vosges nothing 0f Importance
In the eastern thcatro of war Hus
slan attacks southeast of Oumblnhcn
and cast of Loetzen (Hast Prussia)
have been repulsed. We took hun
dreds of prisoners.
The situation In northern Poland Is
unchanged. Our attacks west of the
Vistula are being continued. Nothing
Important has happened on the east
bank of the Plllca.
In Belgium fog has Impeded artillery
Are. The cannonade has not been very
sharp for that reason around Nleu

Between the M's and the Olse, In
the region of Lens, our nrtlllery has
dispersed sappers and trench diggers

To the north of Solssons violent
combats were fought nil day. Tho
action wan localized on the ground
between the two rldsres located to the
northeast and to tho northwest of
Ci-ouy, of which we hold only the
first slopes. On the left our coun
tor attack made somo slight progress
without having been able, neverthe
less, to make an appreciable advance.
At the centre we maintain our posi
tion around tho village of Crouy de
spite repeated efforts by the enemy,
but to the enst. before Vregny, we
have been forced to cedo ground. Tho
persistent swelling of the Atsne has
carried away several bridges and
ferries which we had thrown across
the stream, putting the lines of com
munication of our troops In a very
precarious condition. Under these
circumstances we have established
ourselves to the south of the river
In the section of. ground lying be
tween Crouy and Mist, with the heads
of the bridges upon the north han't.

continues to be the theatre of local ac
tion for the possession of German
trenches of the second or third line.

The enemy at that point, believing
himself attacked, manned his trenches,

Souda-ed-Dowlah, former Governor of
the Province of Azerbaijan, northern
Persia, has arrived at Tlflls from Tabriz
with a story of massacres by the Turkish
forces now overrunning Persia. He de
clares Turkish and German agents have
been hard at work for months using their
Influence with the Persians to work up
prejudice against the Russians.
He declares he posted U00 troops at one
of the Malndab forts and 1200 at the
other, while ho, with 400 horsemen, de
fended the bridge, thus enabling refu
gees to escape to Maraga. After 10 hours
of fighting his guard was annihilated, he
said, tho Turks bringing up machine
guns and using them to advantage. He
and three survivors fled to Tabriz and

Tho sltuatloh on tho Bsura nnd Rnwka
