The shiUng of the steamer Law In the Meditemneaa yesterday merely serves to aggravate a delicate situation, and the re-detention of the American seamen la Germany, the blocking of communication with Americans stranded in the far east, . and other little matters do not im-irrove the situation whatever. Added to .this-is the surety that a more outrageous violation of rights Is close at band.

Germany has once again and stiU more firmly declared that the unrestricted submarine warfare will be pursued to the fullest extent, so that litUe hope Is held out that Pre-�Ident Wilson GUI keep his country from hostilities verjr much longer. Lord Curzon, as mouthpiece tor tb� ; British cabinet in t&eHbaseotLi^MiB, tells wha:t the admiralty Is dotaf to counteract the serious efflEwts ot the submarine warfu'e, the gravity of which is not by any means mlnlmiced In^the British mind. But the plans of the admiralty, which include vastly increased ocean tonnage, and protection from the navy for merchant ships both neutral and allied, are calculated to greatly reduce the effects of the sub. warfare. . I The continued British successes In the far east and on the French front are most heartening. The dally small raids on the Soiome have the effect of winning away from the enemy amall blU of ground which, considered In relation to the entire front, are taost important in tlve manner In Vhleb they tend to weaken the gen-aral lines ot defence of the enemy.

His evident meaning was that ||,^the central powers did not win bj|! gamble. He decided to try when he had constructed a sufficient number of more powerful submarines to carry out an intensive campaign. He does not expect to starve Great Britain into subjection. That fustian Is' for home consumption. He knows that the nation has sufficient resources to establish sea lanes for ships laden yiiOi Importa of food and necessary rav? materials on -which his submarines would not dare to trespass for a day. He ,knows, too, that his submarine losses will be proportionately as great ais his losses have been in similar massed attacks in the air and on land.
