The an- nouncement of the declaration of by Italy against Austria was followed on Monday by several minor engage- ments along the Austrian frontier, in .which Italians claim their first suc- cesses in their new conflict. They. have already driven back over the border an invading Austrian patrol. Following Italy's entrance, all eyes are now on the Balkans where the pot may iboU over at .any moment. British submarines iii the Dardan- elles did some good work on Sunday, iwhen they sunk Turkish transports loaded with troops. The British have repulsed a strong attack of the Germans at Lebassee. .On. -the French frontier, and along the Russian front, the situation ap- from the Russians pears to be satisfactory tUlies' standpoint The nave successfully checked tie Austro- German invasion. i ENTRANCE INTO THE WAR Italy's entrance into the war hai at last Almost since tie con- flict began, she has on the eriak, and uer delay in actlnt has probably caused an adverse opinion to 'be aroused as to her real purposes. Her sympathies, at least that of the best majority of her people, has heen with -the; cause the allies, and in this must not be forgotten that Jtaly was a member of the Triple Al- liance -with Germany and- Austria- Sungary. Why was Italy not in ac- with her partners? Two rea- sons may i'e ottered. first that she was .not in sympathy with the 'reasons offered for the war on.the part of Austria-Hungary and. the sec- ond, her dislike of Austria. the past Austria had.trampled upon Italy and her provinces toft, as Germany had' swallowed French "Provinces. Austria "did her utmost to keep Italy out of. the war. Austria's offer of and'a hand in Albania meant that she was prepared to see an Italian Gibraltar rise on the eastern side of tlie Strait of Ot- ranto, which' would make the Adriatic in all feat name an Italian lake. The proposed cession of the portions of Tyrol Inhabited by Italians and of the Italian districts on. the west hank of the Isonio, in Tenetia ana the offer to make Trieste, a free Imperial city '-with an administration that would aecire the Italian character of the city was also made. Italy mad not accept. Nothing abort of the surrender of all Istria, both -Trieste and Bela, wouH meet the demands ef the war party. There, of covna, was a fac- tion oppowd to joining- handa with the It -TO led by Giolitti, a con- eplcaoas njure la Italian pelitics. He favored the maintenance good nlationc with the German and Aiis- rro-Hnaiarltn Empires. He alao held ttat the strength ot Italy as a Medi't- power would be 'aisared rather tie contlnaaL-ee of food re- lations wits the Central European na- tions than by joining with the ttrong "maritime powers of the and already, in tfca op. talon ot not a few Itallaaa, have too great influence in the Mediterranean. Italy, .with a powerful navy, would be' a valnafele friend of Germany and Aus- tria, whereas htr navy is not of great Importance to Britain and France, be- cause it only adds strength to Giolitti stood for neutrality and for the continuance of the Triple Alliance in a modified form, because he 'be- lieved that, no matter how the-pres- ent itar ends, and Italy have permanent common inter- .eits that should he safeguarded by joint action. Glolitti's opposition delayed the en- trance of Italy Into tie war, but his protests were avail and the pres- sure from the great mass of the peo- venerate the names of Maz- slnl and Garibaldi and who see in Austria's extremity an opportunity for the acquisition "unredeemed Italy" gradually increased since the Opening of war. sionlits are vastly That the expai- more numerous than the neutralists has Become clear- ly evidtnt. Every preparatory step 'taken by the military authorities was 'received with popular acclaim. The 'indents of the' universities offered to en maaae. Old, GarUjaidians Uwlr shirts tun.' The shooting down of men and wo- men of Italian race In Trleete and Foil routed national anger, and territorial concetslona that a tow months ago would hare regard- ed as ample failed to t.mut the Hal tan people. Naturally Italy's entrance into the 'field, ought to pull severely en the German and Austria-Hungary cam- paigns in the east and west. Italy lias an efficient standing army, well equipped and well trained and its Im- mediate activities will draw big forces away from the struggle with Russia 1 a moment when It will be extreme- ly beneficial. One military observer believes Kitchener will co-operate with Italy by sending a force of Brit- ish arms to join in an advance to- wards Vienna. Should such a course be followed and meet success, It would have a. further dampeniug on the none too great ardor of the Aus- trians. Italy's navy may also go forward to Join in the Dardanelles .bombard- ment. Altogether the possibilities of striking developments in Europe are considerably increased by Italy's eacue with the Allies and the tide may 'be expected to turn very strong- s' In the immediate future. One can never, tell, but the collapse of the Turkish defence of the Dardanelles and a victorious movement into 'Aus- .ria by Russian forces from one cor- ner and Italian forces from another corner, seem to be probabilities that will likely ibe'realized in a very short period. Germany may: cry out that the whole world is against her 'but she is to reap the whirlwind. A nation, that has sinned so glaringly against God and man must be punish- ed. Her conduct has not won her friends out of enemies, and it is the business of these enemies to crush her until she yields completely to the demands of civilization. STILL HAS BIG NAVAL LEAD The Goliath; sunk recently in the Dardanelles by a torpedo, from a Tur- kish destroyer, is the third British battleikip to be lost in the Straits. In the case of the Ocean and Irresis- tible, on March, 18, the wastage of life was. comparatively small, but Mr. Churchill's statement to the Commons Indicates 'that over 500 of the Gol- crew went down with the ship. These trained and disciplined sailors and engineers are the real loss. Tfte The Goliath was one of the older pre- Dreadnoughts, and would not. long remained on thev Navy in, any event. Of the lank' since 'the, Audacioul, if, indeed, 'she was waa a. .modem :Dreadnought.- The othec. fire: the Ocean, Goliath, Form- iMble, Irresistible and Bulwark, were iroin thirteen to fifteen years in commission, and that constitutes .old age for a, battleship. Britain has still 35 pre-Dreadnoughts in commission, as against Germany's 20, the greater part of which latter are so lightly armed aa to toe ho match at all -for the British ships. She has as least 27 Dreadnoughts and guper-Dreadr nongbte actually in.commission, and eight more in the final stages of completion. All of them will be at les, by fall. Against this the Oermuia can put seventeen Dread-, noughts Into the1 line pf battle, and ma) at hyit-iiin their completion sd4 two more ky the fan.. The Ger- man position absolutely hopeless at sea, and that is why they hare hid tisir ibattle fleet away in the hope that thtb'.attbmarinea. will perform a miraqle and equalise conditions by sinking a anmber of the British Drndiioughta.
