WARY ADVANCE. ——— ♦ I ITALIANS WIN AUSTRIAN I POSITIONS. I ALLIES CAINING GROUND ALONG TRENTINO FRONTIER. J STRATEGIC ADVANTAGES The Italians continue to make ground along the rugged frontiers of the Tren- tinn, P,.qp,-cially in the south and south- east, where, according to official en(imy- reports, they have brought upheavy guns against the Austrian fortifications. On t lie- -frontirr tbR Ituiians have occupied Grade, in the Gulf c), Tri-tst-, and Italian airships have bombarded the railway at Nabresina. half way between Moufalcone and Trieste. The Italian troops, driven forward at midnight by a hundred years of hate, have swept, away the Austrian advanced positions in the Southern Tyrol and cleared in unexpectedly short, time, with I' minimum lose, all the, points which domi- nated the line* of the Italian concentra- tion. -Italian-impetuosity has partly rec- ti(>] the mH)tary disiidvnntagf "which th?j original demarcation of t? Italian fron- tier was intended hy the Austrian bully to establish. The Italian lincs of communication on this fide of the frontier are no longer commanded by any Austrian f,)rtre"es. I Military movements can now lie made with freedom from interference. The Italians have made rapid progress in th<?ir march on Trent, in the 1 Austrian Tyrol- In the Lake Garda region, Monte. Altissiino, which commands Ala, Mori. R'WI'Tdo. and other towns, was captured without a blow heing struck. On Tuesday the positions seized during!j the night wcrf occupied by artillery dragged up the steep paths. The Itrilian guns opened fire on Ala and Riva (ex- treme norfh of Lake Garda). An Important Success, i The town of Gradisca (ten miles inside I the A\Itrian fr?ntipr on the wMt bank of tbo Isonzo) ha? fallen. This is <hc first import ant ?uccesK won "by. the Haliou iroops on The road f, Trieste. Gradisca is fit. the northern point (if the fortified hilly range commanding the approach to Trieste. During Tuesday morning the Italian artillery opened a. heavy bombardment upon the fortress. The, Austrian guns repliwl vipormt?y for several hours. Then iho A lJstrhn fire died down -1 was silent. The Italian cavalry was sent forward, and in the evening cavalry patrols entered the city, followed next morning by the infantry. Anothpr correspondent, writing from the frontier already captured, statas-t,hat. xo far the Italian advance, is proceeding satisfactorily in all directions. A cm- bat of some importance is going on be- tween Capor«t+o, which is in Italian bunds, and Tulmino, still heili by the; Au<than< for the p?s??"ion of rhf latter p?c?. which dominates <h? Transalpine R:Ü1W'n. TnlmiB? 's one of the most important point" of ?hp Austrian first line d?eu? and ? heavily fortiupd. Proceeding Cautiously, The rapid advance of tho Italian Army] has caused surprise in many quarters, brtt a respiring note comes from Mr. H. ?oaohoe. who, in ?n? ?t his special de- spatches to the Daily Chronic cays: Pome fugitives whe reached the Ital- ian. lines declare that, the Austrians who sought to oppose, feebly, be it said, the invasion of the Trentino, are now in oIt. complete 6t.ate of demoralisation. They dn not wait even to exchange ehot? withi the soldiers ?f V'?tor Emmajiud before I going to the right-about. 'It must not, however, lie overlooked that all this may be feigned alarm, and dimply a ruse de guerre to induce the Italians to commit some imprudence. The latter are wary. and are proceeding -ith caution, consolidating all positions captured from the enemy l'lefore attempt-1 ing any fresh advance into hostile terri- tory. Thanks to her swift advance in the enemy's territory. Italy now enjoys the incomparable strategic -idvantages -whit. the configuration of the terrain yester- day gave to the Austrians. The Italian army to-day dominates important heights from which, four days ago, the Austrian. army menaced the smiling plains of Lorn. bardy." At the Mercy of a Mob I TTdine. Friday.—A telegram received at Corrnons from Trieste mys: The city is fit. the mercy of an Austrian ffuob. The Austrian authorities hare fled, leaving the government of the city in the hands of a dele,gate, which immediately at night began the sacking of Italian buildings. The mob went first to the offices of the great irredentist paper, the Piccolo," forcing their way into .he, ground floor and acking and wetting fire to the premises. The staff only juFt escaped with their lives. This ferocious vandalism spread alarm- ingly, and became general. The damage done is impossible to estimate. The destruction continued the whole of next day, many Italians being the victims. All was done with the connivance and even the collaboration of the gendarmes. It is impossible to predict the ultimate fate of this beautiful city, should the Italians Cot arrive soon.
