LONDON', Sept. IS. An account of the
capture of Lemberg, Galicla, as given
by an English engineer, who has Just
arrived In Petrograd from Lemberg, is
contained in a dispatch to the Central
News from its Petrograd correspondent.
"Panic broke out in the city on the
approach of the Russian army," the
engineer is quoted as saying. "The en
tire Austrian administration fled pre
cipitately. No detense of the town was
attempted. The Russians gave the de
moralized Austrian military authorities
three days in which to evacuate the
Cannonade Terrific People.
"On the third day, as the appointed
time approached. Russian scout aero
planes appeared over the city, watching
for the departure of the Austrians.
"When the Austrians failed to
leave, the Russians made a show
of opening a bombardment. Al
though 'no shells actually fell in Lem
berg, the cannonading terrified the
citizens, of whom 35,000 bolted, helter
skelter, into the surrounding country.
"The large Jewish community was
particularly alarmed owing to stories
which had been circulated in Austrian
newspapers. Bankers emptied their
vaults and made their escape with the
money. Nobody was allowed to leave
for Vienna by train unless they de
posited 6000 kronen at the railway sta
tion to show their ability to meet the
enormously increased expense of living
in the capital. A deposit of 1000 kronen
was required for a trip to Budapest.
Soldiers Beg for Bread.
"Among the pitiful sights in Lem
berg were numerous Austrian soldiers
begging in the streets for bread.
Many of them were seriously wounded.
Other Austrian soldiers were seen car
rying their uniforms under their arms
in bundles which they declared they
were about to burn.
"The utter disorganization of the
Austrian military administration is
evident. The army proved itself an
unwilling mass of men, of which large
numbers were delighted to throw down
their arms to the Russians.
"The Russian army entered Lemberg
In splendid condition, and attended by
an enormous provision train. The in
habitants, especially the Slavs, met the
Russian soldiers with demonstrations
of delight, showering flowers on them.
"Exemplary order was immediately
established under Russian control.."

MANCHESTER, Mass., Sept. 17 The
Austro-Hungarian embassy, temporarily
located here, announced tonight that it
had received a wireless message from
the Foreign Secretary of Austro-Hun-grary
"After the battle of Lemberg. the offi
cial Russian news agency published, as
usual, fantastic news about the alleged
victory of the Russians, giving the
number of prisoners taken as 30,000 and
the number of captured guns as 900. It
is interesting to compare with this
story official communique of Russian
general staff dated September 14 about
the same battle. Here the numbers
have gone down to 8000 prisoners, 30
guns. Communique admits that Gen

Needless to say. our brethren in Aus

States of America, may view the mu
tual policy of Great Britain and Japan
in the China seas with the most per

ests, and the restoration to China of a
port and territory which have been
made an affront to the peaceful pur
poses of life in the Far East. The spirit
of mere conquest has no part in the
