(Received December 3, at 8.15 a.m.) The struggle is still undecided, and the main battle ring is unaltered. Portion of Von Mackensen’s army lias been driven towards Lowicz, and another portion was hurled back on Lodz, while a third portion was terribly mauled and pressed back beyond Tushin (or Tuszyn, south of Lodz). Subsequently, during an attempt fo break through northwards, the Germans ran the gauntlet, under a terrible fire from the Russian batteries, to Lowicz and Sochaczew (on the Bzura, between Lowicz and Warsaw), whore the Russians received them with a frightful hail of shrapnel/ and finally with the bayonet. Then the cut and battered enemy ran the gauntlet southward, where the Russian batteries, cavalry, and bayonets drove them back. The Germans are making desperate attempts to reinforce Von Mackensen, one of whose sections rests on Zdunskovalia, on the river Warta, holding the road to Kalisz. FRENCH COMMENT.

AN ALLEGED INTERVIEW WITH AMERICAN PRESSMAN. (London ‘ Times ’ and Sydney ‘ Sun ’ Services.) LONDON, December 2. An American correspondent who interviewed the Crown Prince at his headquarters. in the field describes him as a sober, earnest, serious, and thoughtful young man with a deep sense of his responsibility. The Prince characterised the war as a wanton sacrifice of life—a struggle which seemed to have little sense or reason. Ho declared that Germany was left no choice in the matter.

“From the lowest to the highest the people of Germany,” ho declared, “know we are fighting for our existence. You will never be able to convince the Gorman people that this war was not engineered wholly for the purpose of crushing Germany. There is no war party in Germany ; militarism is merely a phrase with which England is endeavoring to create a scare and arouse the world against us.” When told that it was reported that the Russians had nearly captured the Kaiser in the vicinity of Warsaw the Prince laughed heartily, and said: “ I must tell father that; he would enjoy it.” “ It is simply incredible,” lie continued, “ what the English papers print about me, also about onr side of the war, thinking me capable of stealing, and of permitting my soldiers to loot French homes.” THE ANSWER.
