Field Marshal von Itlndenburg's new
thrust at Warsaw alrcndy has cost the
Germnns 0000 killed nnd many more In
wounded nnd prisoners, according to ad
missions made by captives and announced
In today's official Russian report, which

of the last few days are regarded as In

Tho battling along tho Bzurn, west of

Heavy artillery tore great gaps In the
Germans' lines. While tho Infantry was
engaged a force of German sappers tun
neled their wny nearly 100 yards to the
first line of Russian trenches. By chnnca
a Russlnn officer discovered the mouth of
the tunnel ns a little group of Germans
came 'pouring out. They were made pris
oners. Two machine guns were rushed
to tho mouth of the tunnel and n com
pany of Germans was slaughtered under
ground. By weight of numbers the Germans
forced the Czar's army at this point to
retire from their first line of trenches
nnd followed up this advantage by shell
ing the Russians out of their second line
positions. Reinforcements wcro brought
up and the Germans forced to evacuate
the captured positions, with the exception

Force Passage of Strategic Blver
Northwest of Wloclawek.
-rETROGRAD. Feb. 2.
RusBlan forces operating north of tho
Vistula have forced a passage to the left
bank. Desperate fighting took place at
the villages of Makow and Dyblln on tho
south side. -
Ae a result of the Russian drive the
Gormans, who have held the southern
shore of tho river for some time, were at
this point thrown back to the lino of
villages of Weleze and Kastgnewo, north
west of Wloclawek.
The ofllctal report containing details of
these movements Is silent as to their
extent. It Is probable that the Vistula
passage was forced by bodies of Cossacks
and otjher cavalry. The Cossocks have
been particularly acjlvo In tho general
campaign in this zone, the objective bl
which Is Thorn. The new drlvo brinks
tho Czar's forces to a point 25 miles south
east of Thorn, and may Indicate an en
deavor to reach the fortress' from this di
rection by an auxiliary movement. If the
operation is one of great strength which
apparently Is not the case, It may mean
the development of a menace to tho rear
of the German army fronting Warsaw.
The Germans In retreating abandoned
many of their wounded at Makow.

Man Suspected of Robbery
Confesses Murder in Tur
key in Reply to Chance
A romance with a tragic termination,
the threads of which lend to a remote
Turkish village In Asia Minor, developed
todny In what was at first an Insignifi
cant robbery case. Tho prlclpals In tho
caso aro two Turks, one living and one
dead, n beautiful Turkish woman and
two City Hall detectives. Tho romance
may bo entitled "The Man Who Slandered
Detectives Hodge and Oscar Brown
were detailed to tho Marceau Studio,
1609 Chestnut street, last Monday, to in
vestigate a roDbery entailing a loss of
$32. Armon Roublan, a tall, handsome
Turk employed at the studio, was among
thoso questioned by the detectives. To
carry out un Idea which flashed through
his brain as tha detectives wero about to
leaio the studio, Brown fixed an enig
matic gaze upon the Turk and asked htm:
"You were arrested before, weren't
"I was," replied the Turk.
"Now let's see, I think It was for
murder," ventured the detective, carrying
his "bluff" a bit furthor.
"Yes," drawled out tho Turk, "It hap
pened In Turkey."
"Oh. we know all about It," rejoined
Brown. "Would you mind accompanying
us to City Hall?"
After nouban was In a cell, the de
tectives communicated with the Turkish
Consul In Now York, and received from
him the Information that his compatriot
was wanted In Turkey for murder. It
developed that In a, auarrel over a beau
tiful woman, In the village of Marash,
Asiatic Turkey, B,oublan killed his rival
suitor, noublan was sentenced td prison
after the murder, but made his escape
In 1911 by bribing the keeper and made
his way Into this country through mys
terious channels,
Boublan, "the Turk who slandered him
self," was today confined In a closed
room at the Immigration Station at
Gloucester, from where he will be de
ported to Turkey as quickly as the au
thorities can arrange for the trip.
