THE SYDNEY MORNIXCf HERALD, v SATURDAY JANUARY 22, 1916. 37 PIG BATTLE " IN BESSARABIA. AIR FIGHTS ON WESTERN FRONT c MESOPOTAMIA. ; t . r 'i r The latest cable news from ' London says that the Montenegrin position remains obscure. f In an earlier message, the .. -Montenegrin Ministry announced that King Nicholas and his troops would fight to the bitter end. An Allied squadron bom-larded Dede-Agach, doing considerable damage. According to a Vienna communique, the battle in Bessarabia is increasingly violent. ;The Austnans claim to have repulsed stubborn attacks. JL The Russians repulsed five desperate counter-attacks north-west of Czernovitz, inflicting enormous losses. General Sir Douglas Haig ('(British Commander-in-Chief j.on tho Western front) says "r there were fourteen aerial f fights on Wednesday. Two of tho enemy's machines were " .brought down.

No more vivid accouut ot the evacuation of Ansae' bus been iiubllsued tUau that from a New Zealand medical officer's diary In (bo "Maiuuesler Guardian," which reads: "; ' :' ' Pecember 10Vr-Hnd tea this afternoon with un. actlllory omi;er,.ana wub ascomsn- od to (eufn, M-at ho 1 leaving with tlie guns, , , .. . .. ....

It ia a ier- rlbly, difficult feat, .and . any hitch, may mean a great disaster. December 33. The evacuation Is pro ceeding steadily. The weather is threat ening;: looks as If we are In for a storm, The Ian -lng was difficult enough; the final evacuation will be a desperate business. Many euns have been shipped. The Turks must know what's happening, Annfarta Plain already wears a deserted appearance. Wo live in expectation or an attack at any moment . All tho stores were transported this evening to embar- cation polut December 14. It la dull and threaten ing. Tho llual scene will bo thrilling. Tho casualties aro estimated at possibly from 0000 to 10,000. I learnt later that preparations were made at Lemnos for thHt number ot wounaen, eiiiny tuuuu- ted iuoj have gone. Tho lant troops to be withdrawn will be the old main body of Australians and New Zealanders the first to land and the last to leave. They have played a glorious part December 15. We expect to leave to morrow night th,e eve of tho final retreat, We had a very trying day. The line Is nrecariously thin. Only a few cannon aro left which fire a great deal to com pensate for the others. If the 'lurks at tack strongly nothing can save us from disaster. Tbelr artillery has scarcely fired for two days. Perhaps they are hatching some scheme. Our warships are firing In cessantly at Cape Holies. Perhaps tbe Turks think we may try another assault at Acbl Bnba, The weather Is line. We never studied the Bky with such apprehen sion. AN ANXIOUS NIGHT. December 16. We had an uneventful, but anxious, night The roads and sap seem deserted. It seems impossible that the Turks do not realise what we are doing. December 17. Definite orders have been received to depart to-morrow nignc une suspense Is most trying. The Turks are extraordinarily quiet Our few guns make brave (bow, but the thinness Is very noticeable to us, if not to the enemy, December 18. Tbe whole place seemB deserted. We couldn't wish for-better weather for the grand finale. Tbe few remaining donkeys keep up a pathetic he-hawlng," as If they realised they will soon be abandoned. Our aeroplanes are aloft all day long to keep off enemy ob servers. The garrison bus been reduced . To-morrow the remainder wiU em bark, or wbat Is left of them. Tbe evacuation has hitherto been a tremendous success, but . To-morrow night will be very critical. December 19. Wo left Ansa a lost even ing, marching In the sap leading to the pier. Not a word was spoken; not a match was struck. We proceeded rapidly and silently in the darkness. All were keyed up. We feared to bear tbe rifle lire at any moment. A few shells burst near the pier.

The London correspondent of the -"Af- tonpostcn" (Copenhagen) gives tbe follow ing version of tho Bnralong Incident A German submarine attacked nn English ship, oil which wore American muleteers. The latter took refuge In lifeboats, and wnen tne tfaralong sank the submarine the inttor s crew took shelter on the merchant man. The muleteers then returned to the snip and wreaked vengeance on tho crew of tbe submarine.

Guardian," Is one ot the most thrilling things which the war has produced. Aon It ia- thrilling mostly because of siuipnciiy. inn omcer is not a war corra spondent, and he Is not straining after eltoot- be is Just telling the story In simple words. Gradually, as the whole tale unfolds, we aro realising what a marvellous bit of work was, this evacuation of Oalllpoll as marvel lous as the very landing Itself. "December The final scene will bo thrilling. The casual ties are estimated at possibly 6000 to 10,000, 1 learned later tbat preparations were made Lmnos ror that number of wounded." That an extract which shows what danger attended tne wnele thing; and yet ttils New Zealand doctor only tells of one man being wounded ny a stray bullet, and three others--throe tho "Dlo Hards," who were tho drst to land ana the last to leave getting sprained ankles. One would have given" something to witness tnat suene at Mudros, when t'aese "Die Hards' marched along a road a mile Ions Hi tho cheering troops. "So proud they looked as the men cheered.

It Is a nrourt slorv f.r'.ll Britons. And now, what? Perhaps the story win do continued at Salomes., But Oalllpoll has assured us tbat, whatevor they may have 10 ngm, we may rely on those dauntless Ana trallans and New Zealanders to fight and do ineir auty as brave men.

They are both "offlclal," but they don't agree. Once again each side has proved victorious. The explanation may Us in the fact that the ac counts we have received seem to refer to different parts of the battle front.; The retrograd message refers to fighting north West of jCiemovlts, where It Is stated, the nuwans capturea a sector of the enemy's positions and repulsed live desperate counter aicacss, innictlng . enoromus losses. Tho Austrian communique, on the other hand. speaks of the repulse ot stubborn attacks north-east of Ciarnovltx between Toporonts aad Bojaq. Toporonti, which has been tbe scene ot most of the lighting here lately, Is situated on the Bessarablan border, north east ot the Bukovlna capital, while Boian Is an Important centre on tbe railway llne c... u, me capital, ana just aoove tne junction of the Austrian-Bess araDian. and Roumanian borders. According to tne Vienna message, the Russians reached tne Austrian trenches several .times, but were ejected, after suffering heavy losses. But we can read between the lines and see that the advantage. Is with the Russians. That tbe Rusalsns succeeded la reaching tne trencnea is evidence of some success. The fact that the fighting now extends to Bo Jan, at the very gateway of Roumanla, shows that the Russians have defeated the attempt to outnanx tnem, and are pushing the enemy soumwara. . itarancie, where heavy fight lng was. reported some, days ago, Is situated midway. between Toporonts and Boian. The battle, we are told. Is becoming Increasingly violent: ana it Is likely to have a very Import-ant effect on the whole war situation. Else where the Russians are making headway. They have Indicted heavy defeat on tbe rums in the Caucasus: and Russian tornedo- ooats in tne Black Sea are credited with having destroyed no fewer than 163 Turkish sailing vessels, as a result of a raid an the Anatolian ooeat. Of these sailers, 73 are stated to have been laden with provisions. KUT-EL-AMARA, The news to hand regarding the eamnaln In Mesopotamia Is very satisfactory. Resent. oablea stated tbat tbe advance of General Aylmer's force, which Is marching to the relief of Major-Oeneral Townshend's troops at Kut-el-Amera, on the River Tigris, bad been retarded, owing to tbo adverse weather con dltlons. Now, however, we are Informed tbat the weather has Improved, and that the re lieving force has reached to within seven miles of the beleaguered troops.'. Having got so far. we need not doubt that General Aylmer will get the whole way. Kut-el-Aiaara Is about 100 miles below the 'famous elty of Baghdad, which was, and Is, the Brit ish objective. Major-General Townshond. despite the difficulties which the long line of communications entailed, succeeded In n-t ting as far as Cteslphon, soma It miles from Bagouao, wnere ne was attacked, and was obliged to retreat. Not without aimouity, for some of the Arab tribesmen were by no means friendly, he managed to roach Kut-el-Amara, where he had previously defeated the Turks; and there he naa nan to remain with his 10,000 troops, watting for reinforcements. Doubtless, now that relief has come, we shall see the continuation ofthe expedition, which bad to be aoaaaonea after tbe Cteslphon reverie.- WHAT SEA POWER MEANS; Boms months ago we read af .th. aula neets oomoarning the Bulgarian pert of Dede Agach, with the result that much damago was done; and now It has been bombarded again, Italian warships Joining in this tun with the British and - Frenoh. Aula. th. damage appears to have .been considerable. Two barracks and a train were destroyed, and a shell was seen to explode In the midst ot the fleeing troops.: The Bulxarlana ma. still be of opinion tbat they are fighting on the winning side, but this bombardment of ueae Agacn will at least remind them of tbe meaning of sea power the power that Is going to tell In the end. It also his Its lesson tor . Greece, though ens lmaaines Oroece does not need the lesson. King Con stantino, who.
