London, 7th:— The German official report tonight claims that the Russian resistance has been broken between Lomza and the mouth of the bug River. The Russians have thus been defeated or have fallen back to new positions after one of the bitterest battles of the war. For just three weeks the Germans, under the supreme command of Von Hinderburg have been trying to force this front on the Nnrew River and to outflank the Russian armies in theii retreat from Warsaw. That not until three days after the evacuation of Warsaw did this line give way lead British critics to conclude that the Rus Sian withdrawal was voluntary and that Grand Duke Nicholas, certain of the safety of his War saw army, has abandoned his Narcw struggle. Berlin:— Press despatches from Warsaw now reaching Berlin say that the Polish capi tal fell after a midnight storm of shot andtll< II against forts to the South of the city. The forts in Warsaw ha I been destroy< .1 last Winter during Von Hinder burg's drive from the West when evacuation seemed imminent. Petrograd:—Attacks on Kov no and Ossowec* by the German forces have begun According to an official statement tonight the works of Sosqa, part of Os sowecz fortresses, were stormed Friday under cover of a gas at tack, but tie Germans were dis lodged by counter attacks the statement saj^ Bnofficifll reports that Kovno was b inevacuated by the RussUlJg reached London today but the Russian official state merit indicates that they still are in possession of the city which is the capital of the gov eminent 'if Kovno in Lithuania and nearly reaching the Baltic. It is a fortress of the first class. Ossowecz,also strongly fortified, is about 50 miles Northeast of Warsaw on the Narew River and about the same distance Southeast of Kovno.

A lei ley from a member of the
British Government to George

Westhampton Beach,
July 22, 1915.
To the Editor of
The New York Times :
1 have received from a corres-
pondent who holds high office
in the present British Adminis-
tration, in reply to a letter of
suggestion of my own, a report
in regard tn certain issues now
existing between the United
State and Great Britain, issues
which have made trouble, and
which may hi made the text of
a pretext for serious friction,
between the United btates and
Great Britain.
I belong myielf to the group
of those who consider it of first
importance that sympathetic
friendly relations should be
maintained b tuvm the United
States and (iicat Britain, and
believing, as I do, that Great
Britain and her allies are fight-
ing in the cause of civilization,
I am anxious that I lie United
Stales should take pains to
minimize the fficulties in the
way of a gun s-lnl outcome in
the contest, and should in an)
case do nothing thai might
serve to increase those difficul
ties. I ran but Ihink that the
information presented by my
English correspondent is of im
portance nnttjshould prove of
service in making char the na-
ture of certain of the cases that
havft-ifc'cn utilized to bring
about friction and difficulties.
The letter is personal, and I neutral lights has been on the
am not permitted to use in con- part of Germany is something
nei tion with it the name of its tor which the league of neutral
distinguished author, but it is States would, of course, have
my belief that he could not ob
ject to having the information
that he presents utilized to fur-
ther this all important matter
1 of international relations.
With reference to one ex-
pression in the letter of my cor
had no kind of responsibilitv.

been the duty of this h ague to
take cognizance from time to
time of actions by any of the
Combatants which impaired, 01
get med likely to impair, the
rights of neutrals, and to i la< e
on record a proti st against sui h
act ems. Even although at the
time there might have been
available no naval or militan
I ' r with which to enforce
such protest, the protest itself
would have been of value with
ref renn the maintenance of
the right* of neutrals in future
similar wars Such t) league
would, I am confident, have
proved of material service in
placing on reroi the necessary
protests Hgninst the serious
breaches of neutrality which
have occurred from the very
beginning of the war
The fact that by far the I fir

1 opinion that the alii

which I know are from linn to
time raisi (| by Amei ican claim-
ant^, have no real foundation
in fact It has happened mote
than once that when everything
was ready it was tin- American
claimants u Im required fm ther
time, and not unreasonably
since they had to c< tmmunicate
with America, a1 d America
again might have to communi-
cate with other countries in or
der to obtain all the propt rand
necessnry material to enable
the case to be properly and
finally determine d,
l.et me add one thing more
and here again I feel sure you
will not misunderstand me
that most of the American
claims with which 1 hail todeal
did not impn ss n <- wifll their

You know me w 111 enough to
know that I am not so unwise
as to think that small individ

it is pr< i '} thi I; of man

London, 7th: The German
official report tonight claims
that the Russian resistance has
been broken between Lomza
and the mouth of the bug River.
The Russians have thus been
defeated or have fallen back to
new positions after one of the
bitterest battles of the war.
For just three weeks the Ger-
mans, under the supreme com-
mand of Von Hinderburg have
been trying to force this front on
the Nnrew River and to outflank
the Russian armies in theii re-
treat from Warsaw.
That not until three days after
the evacuation of Warsaw did
this line give way lead British
critics to conclude that the Rus
Sian withdrawal was voluntary
and that Grand Duke Nicholas,
certain of the safety of his War
saw army, has abandoned his
Narcw struggle.
