Nish, Sunday-â€”The following official statement is ipsned here: On June 28, at about 3 a.m., the enemy opened fire on positions and towns along the Danube from the front Plechitckâ€”Kovineâ€” Baziackeâ€”Nildavaâ€”Korenik. He shot more than IOll shells from his howitzers, and expended a largo quantity of muni- tions, the fire from the infantry and quickSrers lasting for more than 12 hours. But from a military point of view he obtained no result. Our artillery replied at certain points, expending ten times less ammunition. On June 29 the enemy shot feven shells from his howitzers on Dongi and Milano- vati without result. A statement published in a Hungarian newspaper that M.

AUSTRIA SHORT OF DRUGS. I Zurich, Frid-ay.-For the second time since the outbreak of war the Austrian Ministry of the Interior has sent out official warning to doctors and chemists to exorcise the strictest economy in the use of drugs in order to avoid the pre- mature exhaustion of most important medicines. It is pointed out that the extraordinary conditions of the war have entirely stopped the import of many foreign drugs, while even Germany has restricted the export of medicines to the Monarchy.
BACK FROM GERMAN PRISON. I The neighbourhood of G.W.K. Station, Llaxusamlet, was lavishly decorated with bunting on Saturday, the occasion being the welcome ho-nieof Lance-Corporai Fred Harries, E.A.M.C., Neath-road. Hundreds of people gathered at the station, and the hero, who arrived with the 10 p.m. train from Swansea, was chaired to his home, amidst the ren- dering of patriotic aire by the Llansamlet Brasg Band. Harries, who is a strapping fellow, is a reservist, and was captured by the Ger- mans at the end of August. He was among the group recently released.
GERMAN SHIPPINS LOSSES I The official lists issued by Lloyd's show that the number of Norddeutscher Lloyd steamers laid up in neutral ports is 77, theira.ggrega.tt) tonnage being 470,653 tons. These vessels, of course, must be deteriorating at a. rate far in excess of the normal (says The Syren "), and the cost of maintaining standby erews will be terribly heavy. Four steamers of the N-orddeutscher Lloyd fleet, have been cap- tured at eaa by the British since the out. break of war, their total tonnage being 12,771 tons; five, aggregating 19,1,57 torns, were seized on enterBrit ish .ports after the outbreak of war: four, agigregfatin# 12,584 tbons, were detained in oversea British ports on the outbreak of war; one, in a, port, in the United Kimrdom and â– three, of 23<636 teas, were defeated, m Egyptian port*. 1
WHAT KAISER SWORE i THERE SHALL BE NG WINTER CAMPAIGN SAID HIS BOMBASTIC HICHNESS TERROR OF THE POPULACE Paris, Monday.â€”In the "Figaro" M. Capus quotes statements made by a dip- lomatist of a neutral country, who has ar- rived from Berlin a-d passed through Paris yesterday. Thâ– â– â– diplomatist said the greht event of lari week in Berlin was a speech made by the Emperor on the occasion of a military ceremony. The Kaiser, amid the c' -,s of officers and men, swore there '1, V tx,> no winter campaign, and that 1 e war would be over in October. The news of the ] '"peror's f;tatement causes extraordinary excitement in tho capital, for there is j doubt, both in the army and the nation, the possibility of a winter campaign is regarded with veri- table anguish, says th" diplomatist. Germany is, of course, preparing for a winter campaign, as -tie prepares for all eventualities in the wir. In nothing will be found wanting I Terror of A i Classes. But. continues the diplomatist, what is certain (and in. my opinion entirely in your favour), is the terror, more or le.ss avowed, more or leis, visible, yet. deep rooted in all classes oi society, of a winter campaign. It may bo stated that Ger- many. to avoid it, will betwoen now and the autumn make tV- supreme maximum pftrirt. In spite of lw immense strength, I do not think her capa lilt4 of resisting, undet- good conditions, the return to the scene of Russia towards the end of the summer, especially considering that then flic British effort will have an added in- tensity. The German offensive will, there- fore, in all probability, be furious and general on your fiord. Succeesfnl resis- tance on your part w 11 have incalculable consequences, since it will perhaps be the last effort of Germany, which will thus be broken. L;-

RUSSIA'S TASK I w IENEMY ADVANCE MEETS I OPPOSITION. DESPERATE ENGAGEMENTS GH THE VISTULA AND THE BUG. THE FATE OF WARSAW The following official message was issued in Petrograd on Sunday:- In the Shavli region and to the west of the Niemen, there has been no recurrence of fighting. In the Edvabno region a fierce mining conflict is in progress near the vil- age of Kutche. We c,aptllred a gallery of illre d a -,a l l?.,Qrv of mines, in which we found twenty-two poods (about OOOlbs.) of dynamite, and we exploded a mine chamber that had been prepared by us on the Bzura. Near the village of Sukha we repulsed an attempt by the enemy to approach our trenches in the direction of R-adom. Our troops, taking the offensive during the I night of July 2-3,. captured the trenches of several Austrian battalions. I Desperate Vistula Fight. between the Vistula and the Bug, on July 2nd and 3rd, there were desperate engagements. An enemy offensive on the l'iyznica stream has been successfully stopped by us. The ecieany conoentra/ted his principal effort ij& the eiwa of the town of Krosuik in the direction of Lykhave, where his attacks during the night of July 2nd and 3rd were repulsed by our troops, but the reeuli of the fighting is not, yet. known.

Hers the enemy sustained very heavy losses. The village of Tarjimekhi. which the- enemy had captured passed again into our hands at dawn yesterday a ftr a gallant attack by the regiments o.f Genval Ivmaaoff. After holding up the advance of the enemy on the Gn ila Li pa, our patrols fell back during the night of July 3rd-4tt-,h to the Zolota-ia Li pa. There is no change on the Dniester. j THE FATE OF WARSAW, i I No Immediate Apprehension in Petrograd Petrograd, Sunday.â€”No immediate ap- prehension is entertained as to the fall of Warsaw. In any case the struggle for tli3 city bids fair to be protracted, since the enemy advancing on Brest-Litewsk would be obliged to reckon, not only with the Russian resistance, but with the marshy character of tho terrsin. Even if the Germans should reach Iva i- gorod, the military authorities aver that this would not necessarily involve the surrender of Warsaw, if the rumours that civilians are evacuating Warsaw are true, this implies first that preparations are being made for its defence. In an address to the Red Cross on Fri- day the Minister of War laid special em- pha.sis on the words of the Imperial Re- script reiterating the determination of the Tsar to continue the Avar till the foe is entirely crushed. These notable and mighty words, said General PolivanoT, point to the necessity of concentrating ail our efforts, ability and know ledge in one aim to conquer the foe. Onr thoughtA must be directed to where Russian blood is flowing, where our valiant army is fighting and contesting every inch of ground. I "STRONG RUSSIAN FORCES." I Is Austria Affected by Russian With- drawal? Amsterdam. Sunday.â€”To-day's Aut- trian official communique states that in the Russian theatre of war tho Prussians, who yesterday with strong forces offered an obstinate resistance in East Gahcia, between Narajowka and Zlotalepa. and further north, were attacked by allied troops, and after long hours of fightingÂ° repulsed along the entire front to wards the Zlotalipa We captured 3.000 prisoners and several machine guns. In the district of Przemyslany and Griniany the enemy is retreating to- wards the east. On the Bug the situation remains un- changed. In Russian Poland, in several sectors of the front, heavy fighting has de- veloped, as the Russians with strong forces an attacking. All Russians at- tempts to regain lost ground have com- pletely failed. One of our corps bloodily repulsed five Russian attacks. Fighting is proceeding for the Brook of Wyzrica.

A NILE WON. Fresh Advance in i ï¿¼ E' Gampolt TURKS SCATTERED BY GREAT GUN FIRE. WMSHiPS ?81. The Press Association's special correspondent at the Dardanelles, telegraphs under date June 29th, that yester- day, as the result of a brilliant attack by our forces, a mile of ground was gained on our left iront, and the enemy were driven out of five lines of trenches, with heavy loss. A strategical advantage was gained which will essen- tially modify the situation in our favour. With Bomb and Bayonet, In order to appreciate what happened it must be remembered that thB attack on June 4th left us with an out- ward bulge in the centre of the line. the centre having been pushed forward about a thousand yards in advance of the flanks. As far as the right was concerned the inequality was corrected to a certain ex- tent by a French advance last wees. On the left flank, where at n-iarty romt our trenches were only a few yards from the Turkish, local fighting has been in- cessant since June 4tii. The eueir.y has been bombed out of trpll h alter trench, and bas counter-attacked desperately at night. There have ba-en short and bloody Bcuffles from trench to trench which have usually resulted in our men bombing and bayonetting the Turks out of the parti- cular section ot the trenches attacked. To the rlc*per<Â»;? <V ic; k of riicse mostly un. tluoiiicied enoountexs, the condition of the newly occupied trenches bears sicken- ing witness. Fiqht for a Ravine. The central pari of the position on the left is a long, deep. winding ravine called by our army the Mullah, and marked on the Turkish maps o..s the Soughirdere river, of which it is t.he bed. Th Mullah runs up from the sea for l1Ã™lc6 to the hill barrier, of which Aehi Baha is the central point, where it loseli itself in a cluster of small ravines. I in the left the Mullah is separated from the tea by a high narrow plateau, from the seaward edge of which you have a sheer drop of 4-10 foet or more to the water's edge. The opposing tranches start from the very edge, of the cliff across the plateau, dip into the Mullah, and start again from the other side of it. whence they run across the peninsula. A Tremendous Battering. It was the coastal plateau from the bottom of the Mullah to the sea against which tho main weight of tho attack on June 28th was launched. The way for the attack was prepared by "ne most tremen- dous hammering from our artillery that the enemy has yet had. At 9 in the morn- ing our heavy art ill cry, the quantity and weight of which must have been a surprise to the enemy, opened a terrific fir" of heavy shells on the Turkish trenches and kept it up for two hours. rrom the sea a number of ships close to Cape Relies and further up the coast shelled enemy a position. Two destroyers also bore a useful part in ham- mering the enemy's trenches. It was a magnificent sight from the cliff above Cap,. Belles to see huge bursts of smoke and dust leaping up in an even lifle following the course of the enemy's trenches with deadly precision. High ever everything floated an obser- vation balloon fettered to a ship spotting for our gunners, who never aimed to better purpose. An enemy aeroplane tried to drop a bomb on the balloon, but missed, and was driven off.
