This, if put into effect, will result in preliminary warfare be- tween torpedo craft and submarines In the present petition of things, as they appear, British fleet, short of and destroying the enemy, tba opportunity for which has not beta offered, practically done serncs to crippling German iommerce, merchant ships being un- a-ble to reach or proceed from Ger- xnaa Torts. Tcis maritime strangulation, it is opined on the other hand, may make It poislble that two cauws, the pres- aure of public eplnloa in Germany. and the desire OL yoiag fleet to troVe itself, may lead to an earlier ajpearance of the German fleet In the North Sea ttan has been predicted by strategists t can only, therefore, await da- Telopments.
