The Russian drive has carried the Czar's forces far iuto Oalicia and Bukowina, and tho whole Austrian campaign along this frontier ha? col- lapsed with the stupendous and sud- den offensive of the Russians, On sea as well as on laud the Rus- sians have been busy.

That is me .ironical -..situation, over .-which; Germany wildly, rejoices. The pur- pose of stating it in those terms is not to dim thVaspeqt'pf a brilliant and Very gallant German performance, but to emphasize the fact that in Germany its importance lias been enorjnously exaggerated. "The relative positions of Germany and England" remain almost un- changed. True, the German, admiralty does not allow Itself to say that the British.forces were defeated. That is left to be inferred. Popular enthus- iasm has been, permitted to run away with the two ideas that England's mastery of the sea is broken, and that the title of Admiral of the World has bestowed itself upon the kaiser. Disillusionment is bound to follow. The hateful blockade will not be less will not be more plenti- ful in Berlin, and the 'freedom of the sea' will remain a hope for which Germany cannot afford to swap naval, units with England, even on these terms. "It seems clear that the British -were not outclassed in fighting. The loss they suffered was in that phase of the battle during which their cruiser units -were engaged by Ger- man dreadnoughts and .the .odds of force were very much against them. When, the German high seas fleet did really meet the British grand fleet the naval supremacy of the English was immediately incontestable."
