THE FIGHT FOR TREBIZOND.
BRESLAU TAKES A PART.
LONDON, April 9
The "Times" correspondent at Petrograd says that the Turkish attack on the right flank of the Caucassus army was supported by the fire of the Breslau thirty miles from Trebizond. The Turkish army comprised several divisions, including some Gallipoli reinforcements and was beaten off, but the event shows the enemy maintained cohesion. After the Erzeroum disaster the enemy seemed commanded by Halid Bey, a very able officer. The Turkish centre is feverishly fortifying the approach to Erzinjan.
