Says Americans Won't Kail Into Snare Set For Them Hy Huns UTILIZE K08S RIFLE FACTORY Quebec, June 6.-Hon. C. C. Bal-lantyne, minister of marine nnd fisheries, today told a deTegatlon of members of the board of trade that the government was considering the subject of utilizing the premises of the floss Rifle factory and the $2,000,000 Transcontinental workshop. London, .Tune R. - (Assoointcd I'resH.)-In a .sliilciiiont last night, Archibald llind, llio woU known writer on iinvul ul'fiiirs. loolc tho viuw that tho (lornian siit)inarino operations ofC tho American coaal were Intondnd to try to draw American naval vcrfHelB from European witters. "The raid was not undnrtalcon," aaid -Air. llurd, "with the l(U!a ot ohtaln-Ing direct military resiilt.s, but mainly US a demonstration. Alter nearly four j'oar.s of warfare tho German mind can 1)0 road with ii fair degree of accuracy. ' It was assumed that tlie people of tJM! United States would be Inlimi-(latifl; that they would demand Im Jiossible measures of protection and that in order to satisfy public opinion the navy ilopartmciit would reconsider Its' plans foj- co-operation in hunting down subniarino.s in ICuro-])ean waters, even if some ot the American destroyers on duly on this side of tlio Atlantic were not Iramedialoly recalled. That is a course ot action that would suit Germany admirably. "Tho I'boats are having a hard time. Since tlie l)eKinniiiff of .Marcli. the enemy has had more veaseis at .sea llian ever before. The niiniber destroyed lias been larger actually and relallvnly, and the loss in tonnage iiince the boginniiiK of the war has been steadily reduced. American vessels have contributed materially In producing this result as the Germans Icnow. If they can eafic the almost un-l)earal)lo presence ot American ships in Ifyuropean waters by a demon-stra-tlon off the American coast they will have accomplished their i)urpose.

"Tlieru is no possibility of (.he enemy maintaining a long continued campaign off the shores of \merica which would reriuire a large number of l!-l)oats. The Diesel engines givo gri^atiy increased r.'tdius of action to big submarines, but New York is eiisily .'i.'iOd miles froin the nearest German base and tho return journey means a matter of stven thousand miles, apart from the mileage involv-,ed in chasing merchant men. so there i.^ no reason to anticipate any such developments as liave been seen in Hri-lish waters and in (lie .Mediternn-nean. The U-boats crossing the A.l-laiitio twice pas.? - through the danger areas of patrols, aircraft and mines. "There Is a variety of measures available to the American authorities sliort of rcla.xing the su-ingency of their anti-submarine measures on this Bide. I>'or instance, outward and iiome-ward shipping can be dispersed, thereby increasing tlio difficulties of the U-boats in finding the targets." St. John, N.
