The Kaiser is at the Carpathian front, and the first effect of his per
tonal charge of the campaign is a vigorous offensive, conceded in semi
official reports from Pctrograd.
Resumption of Teuton activity is marked in the Stryj region, which is
nearly cqui-distant from the strategic points of Uszok Pass, Przcmysl,
Lemberg and the Bukowina border. Emperor W Hit elm, according to the
tame advices, has ordered the Germanic forces, evidently reinforced, to cut
through the Slav left wing to force abandonment of the pressure against
Uszok Pass and the harrying of Bukowina.
In North Poland, according to Petrograd official bulletins, the Ger
mans have opened a new bombardment of Ossowitz and made minor assaults
, at Sutvalki and other points.
' The admission by the French War Office that the offensive in the
Woevre region has been temporarily suspended while the lines arc being
re-formed is regarded as significant in London and Paris. The French
hdmit that the Germans arc attacking at several points along the St. Mihiel-Pon-a-Mousson
line, but say that the attacks were repulsed.
British aviators bombarded Antwerp and Bruges and damaged a rail
udy line used by the Germans.
k Berlin officially reports gains at Pricstiuald (La Prctrc Forest), and
tats all French attacks in the Woevre have been repulsed. Heavy fighting
is poirtfl on near St. Mihiel.
