day to a dispatch stat ing that the British had landed a force at Baku on the Caspian That this presages an attempt to effect a back door entrance to driving that country out of the war and ending for all time the German hope of a controlling influence In the Near East is the opinion of Vahan Carda an Armenian writing the New York says The landing of English troops in Baku is of greater moment than is perhaps The war will be determined in the west by the decisive defeat of the Teutonic al But the duration of the war will be determined by what is done or what is omitted in tho east during the
