While the RusaJans continue their flight before the Osraaans In the re gion of Riga, the Italians, after a few days of comparative Idleness, again have started their gr*at offensive on the Balnalsea plateau against the Aastrain* and to the northest of Qoriala. In the sonth, however, from the Brestovisza valley to the sea, the Ital ians have been compelled to with stand viol eat counter-attacks by the Auatriaa*. who are endeavoring to hold baek General Oadorna's lines from a further approach to Triest. The Aa stria as at OH place momenta rily forced the Italians to cede ter ritory. A ceun tar-attack by he Ital ians not alons retrieved the lost po sition but resulted la the capture of more than 400 prisoners. On the Bainslzsa plateau, northeast of Go rilla* the Italians have made further gains, capturing an Important Aus train position near Ocroglo. > No details have been vouchsafed concerning the battle which is In progress northeast of Oorizla, and no confirmation is at hand of the re ported capture by the Italians ot Monte Ban Oabrlele, the last dominat ing position held by the Austrian a north ot Oorizla.

PEWS MEN HOLD TEOTONS Germans Returned to Fray With New Vigor—Halg'e British Troops D*lN er Successful Attack*—Lull In Northern Russian Front*. Again the French and Qermans ar* engaged in extremely heavy fighting In the Verdun sector, with the Ger mans trying to recoup their loss of the end of last week on the right bank of the Meuse, but with General Petaln's forces holding them back al most everywhere and covering the ground with their dead. Ov*r a front of nearly two miles the Germans, following unsuccessful attacks in the sector of the Bols Dss Fosses and the Bols dee Caurleres, re turned to the fray with renewed vig or, especially around Hill 344. At some points French trenches were captured by the Qermans but they later were driven out and the French line was entirely re-established. In the fighting around the Bols de Posses Saturday night the Germans left near ly one thousand dead on the ground before the Prench positions. At various points on the front held by Field Marshal Haig the British troops have dellverod successful at tacks, especially northwest of St. Quentln, where German positions on a front of several hundred yards were captured and prisoners taken. In | Flanders the British guns are still roaring In the mighty bombardment that has been In progress more than a fortnight, but as yet the Infantry has not been looßsd for the Impend ing dash into the enemy territory.

LANSING EXPOSES BREACH OF SWEDISH NEUTRALITY Develops Another Ca** of Sinister Tsutonlo Diplomacy. Washington.—Cople* of three brief dispatches made public by the state department revealed another ca*a of sinister German diplomacy, thli time directed agMnst Argentina ar.d Involv ing the Swedlah foreign office In an apparent grave breach of neutrality and diplomatic propriety. They were messages to Berlin from Count the German charge at Beunos Aires, forwarded by the Swed ish legation there as It* own commun ications. Desldes advising that no concessions be granted Argentina In the submarine controversy, they sug gest that the South American coun try's ships be sunk "without leaving any trace" and gave Information as to the sailing and position* of certain vessels. The department's announcement was sent to the Argentine embassy and the Swedish legation here at tho same time It was given to the public. There was no explanation as to how the messages came Into the hand* of the United States nor discussion aa to what may be the result. The action created a aenaatlon, par ticularly among the r.eutral diplomats. Baron Akerhlelm, the Swedish charge In the absence of advices from his gov ernment, would not comment further than to say It was Improbable the Swedish minister at Buenos Aires knew of the contents of the dls patchos. Axel Robert Nordvall of tha special Swedish economic mission, de clared that he was certain that Baron Lowen, the Swedish minister to Argen tina, had no knowledge of the contanta of the dispatches. May Recall Baron Lowsn. Mr. Nordvall was of the opinion that Baror. Ixiwon would b* recalled by the Swedish government and aald tie looked for an explanation and a disavowal of any Intention to commit an unneutral act. What effect the disclosure will have on Argentina's relations with Germany could only be guessed at both by state department officials and by Ambassador Naon. The ambassa dor already has transmitted message* to hi* government and until Instruc tions are received he will not comment on the Incident.
