Resistance Is Stubborn.
LONDON. Oct. 5. A graphic account
of the frustration of an attempt by the
Germans to cross the Niemen River Is
given by the Dailv Telegraph's Petro
"The Germans appear' to have fallen
into a Russian trap," the correspondent
says. "On September 23 the rear guard
of the Russian General Rennenkamp's
army was transferred to the right
bank of the river and the following
evening the Germans approached the
stream. The next day, seeing no signs
of opposition, the Germans proceeded
to construct pontoon bridges and com
pleted this work without molestation.
Germans Swept Into River.
"It was only when the troops were
pouring across to the right bank in
fancied security that a sound like the
roll of thunder was heard and dozens
of Russian guns, cleverly posted and
screened, opened their concentrated fire
on the crowded bridges. ,
"Before the blast of shra'pnel and
machine .gun projectiles the Germans
were swept into the river by the hun
dreds, fepeedily. however, the challenge
of the Russian guns was taken up by
the German artillery and for a long
tine the duel continued.
"After a while, the Germans, think
ing they had gotten the measure of the
Russian gunners, attempted to throw
their troops across the Niemen. But this
time also they had no better luck and
not one of the soldiers who stepped
upon the bridges either reached the op
posite shore or returned.
Hundreds Float Away.
"The bodies of the slain floated in
hundreds. down the yellow flood of the
Niemen. Still the Germans vigorously
maintained their bombardment, and
about six o'clock in' the evening made
a last desperate effort to utilize the
bridges On which they had spent such

directed fire of the Russian artillery.
The enemy then fell back eight miles,

than 20,000 German corpses were car
