last few months, ha reached in a. sin
gle move the objectrve fought for bo
stubbornly, but without success, by
General BruBstloff's trumphant forces
of last Summer In a Ions and arduous
campaign. This feat means the definite
piercing" of the Austro-German lines on
a broad front, and not merely a local
penetration, which was accomplished by
the first Kussian. victory west of Tar
uopol. The activity of the Russian armies
lias now spread from Tarnopol to the
Carpathians and they are steadily push
ing forward on a. continuous front more
than 100 miles long-.
Lemberg is now open to attack from
Halicz. It ia also likely that the Aus
trian line, which has long been based
on the Onila I-ipa River, will be forced
to retire, and. as the Russian movement
develops in the direction of Lemberg it
is sure to have an eiTect on the situa
tion in the Kovel-Vladimir-Volynsk re
gion. Halicz is the strategic key to Lem
berfc, the capital of Ualieia.
In addition to rapturing Halicz, the
Russians took -000 prisoners and more
than 30 guns. They- also advanced
westward to the left bank of the
Lomnica River, and pressed forward
on the Bogorodchan-Zolotvin front.
