Islands declared that according to their information Tho Bri Tish had lost a Cruiser in the engage ment. They cannot take their medi Cine without a Little Consolation of this nature even though it be wholly imaginary. The German ambassador to the United states has protested that by his interpretation of the Hague convention of 1907, Liy Dro aeroplanes Are warships and As such not exportable to a belligerent nation from the United states. If count von born fit Orff were not built of brass in place of flesh and blood he would not be Able to say the words Hague con vent on without choking to death. The pro German interests in Tho United states Are responsible for both Tho Darla and Wilhelmina ventures by which it is hoped to emitter relations Between the United states and great Britain. This however is a Gamo that two can play. There is nothing to prevent British sympathizers fitting out a ship with food stuffs and conditional contraband consigning it to a russian Baltic port. Has anyone any doubt what would happen to such a ship when it reached the German Waters of the Baltic Winter Campaign a me caucasus Wimch huh proved so disastrous to the turks was unit of Tho general offensive Campaign planned by the germans against the russians.

The eleventh corps since reinforced from or serum has again advanced towards the Frontier and Skir furl Ier South a turkish Force made up largely of irregular kurdish cavalry overran the of Persia Azerbaijan and occupied Tabriz the second City of the kingdom. Hostility Between the persians Ana Tho turks is in old and a very Long Story. The turks have twice before taken Tabriz Tho two countries Wero at War Early in the int Century and Tho effects of that particular conflict Havo been Felt to Tho present Day. Only last summer an International commission upon which great Britain was represented was at work delimiting the boundaries Between Persia and Turkey in order to prevent further strife. Turkey has thus entered a Neutral Mussulman country with which she has Long been in antagonism and her instruments have signalized their massacre and spoliation. Tho russians have marched forces into Persia and it is unofficially reported that they have Cap tured Tabriz from the turks. Had no Power on to High seas but that of sheer destruction they Sank every British Phlp they met with its contents. No doubt Neutral shippers have suffered enormous losses by these methods and in due time Germany will hear them Uleie Totore the Grinan if there is a party truce in the Dominion parliament at the com life session As there should be it will j not it is to be hoped mean Protection i for Scal Awag contractors who have or am Ner Sruv Yihua whisper that silence was discreet tried to make undue profits by Dos kor Belgium is waste a.

T est the hate you boast of he yours alone. And curses like chickens find Roost at Home in Kermant that such a poem As Lissauer s chant of hate should earn for its writer the plaudits of the German decorations from the emperor constitutes a very effective exhibit in support of the charge that for the time being Germany has ceased to to a civilized nation. This is the tribal irrational hate of a people who have relapsed. In their sentiments and actions into barbarism. The War will cure them of this As of other follies they despised the British be tons. Members on both sides of the House should vie with one another in exposing these rascals and insisting upon Justice being done. It ought to be regarded by the Canadian people As an unforgivable offence for a con tractor to make an undue profit or a Public Man of take illegitimate poli tical advantage out of opportunities arising from the War. The figures of the United states Export published on saturday show no falling off in Export Trade to Europe but a very remarkable re distribution of the markets that absorb. Exports to Germany and aus Tria combined fell off contrasting dec., 1914, with dec., 1913, to great Britain they increased and to France the figures speak eloquently of Bri Tish control of the seas. The Block atle of Germany however was not As effective As the figures suggest since the exports to Italy Rose for the month. Most or this excess it is a fair Feuless found its Way Overland to Austria and Germany. The War Day by day1 the sinking of three or four Small British vessels in the Irish sea by a highly dangerous tactics and the do army May suffer heavily. While these operations Are going Forward in the carpathians there will probably be a period of comparative Calm in Poland. From Subj marines acting Commerce have followed Tho same the ship has been destroyed after the Crews were ordered to the boats. It is re ported. However that one of the ship lost in the Irish sea was simply torpedoed without notice. This too was the proceeding followed when the French hos Pital ship was sunk in the Channel. It is in accordance with the statement Inada a month ago to an american journalist by Admiral von Tarp Ltd when to threatened to Send his submarines into Tho British water with orders to sink every ship trying to make a British port. Following Tho crushing defeat in the North sea the germans plan to put this project into operation. That this will add to great Britain s naval problem goes without saying but it will he dealt with no a suit Able manner. The number of German submarines capable of operating in the Atlantic water is limited and at Best they will Only occasionally make a kill ing. It May be necessary to Convoy freight steamers through dangerous Waters with torpedo boat destroyers. These ships Nve the answer to the sub Marine. The has not been a Case since the War opened of a ship guarded by torpedo boat destroyers on Tho Alert being successfully attacked by a sub Marine. The successful Transfer of Bri Tish droops to of nearly half n million without a single transport Beine damaged is proof enough that the sub Marine is relatively harmless when a keen watch for it is being kept by boats equipped to Deal with it. The submarine is a the Clement of Surprise constitutes half Ita effectiveness. If the germans carry out their plan of Torp doing British ships carrying cargoes to and from British ports our american a blends will Havo to pay their share of Tho shot since much of these cargoes will be american owned. That May perhaps incline the United slates government to regard with less Cool unconcern these deliberate breaches by Tho Gennana of All rules of civilized warfare. Slowness with which Tho Bleg of Pizem so is proceeding has moved an american newspaper to say that apparently forts defended by Austro Ger Man artillery cannot to rushed As the germans rushed Mauhee and Antwerp. As matter of fact however Przemysla is invested but is not rus sians Are simply containing it and letting hunger and disease do their work. The desperate attempts by the austrians to Force Tho russians to raise the siege suggests that the condition of the Gar Rison is go Vang Rise to anxiety. There is a considerable austrian army shut up in Przemysla. From 1dog when the "dreadnought1 was launched until 1914 when Tho Queen Elizabeth was Laid Down the weight of the British broadside had grown from ibs. To ibs. Now that naval actions of the War have proved the vital importance of Superior gunfire both in Range and in weight of Metal a great in Terest attaches to the figures Tho Tho first of this class has armament of eight 12-sn. Guns which fire a broadside weighing in All ibs. Tho broadside of the Nep launched in 1911, was composed of ten 12-Inch guns the weight of the broadside Uius being raised to ibs. That of the built in 1912. With no less than ten 13.gin. Guns is ibs. That of the King George of 1913. With ten 13.5ln. Guns. While that of the Quen which was Laid Down in 1914, with he eight 15-ln. Guns reaches Tho enormous weight of 15.600 ibs. Tho Queen Elizabeth broadside exceeds six tons in weight. Imag no a Jolt of that size smashing against Tho deck and superstructure of a hostile ship because his verses aim with one a wearying design at adding Lustre to Tho Fame achieved by Britain on the brine because they fall to satisfy the sex Besolt cd it very Neily makes me cry to see in the Honor list. Because to holds in High respect the Knightly courtesies of War does not Bow Down to intellect and steeps himself in Frol scarfs lore because to bids a play Tho game and not the i do not care to Sec his name included in the Honor list. Because to has not eulogized the operas of Richard Strauss. Or liberally recognized Cir Hardle s courage in Tho House because he s More an errant Knight than pacifist or i feel it is not fair or right to put in the Honor list. Because he has not wreathed with Baya Tho brow of Good sir William Bylas or lavished undiluted Praise upon Tho food of Eim Taco Miles or urged that we should. The cult of the it Nils to with a sick Surprise to and in the Honor list. Has t written odes in Praise of Norman Angell s views or aped the fashionable modes which modern verifiers use because he writes with much restraint and is in style a classicist it very nearly makes to faint to see in Tho Honor list. In one while Al for Abdulh s everlasting Macdonald. Cadbury and i have each no handle to his name. While Handel Booth s Well earned. Is still conspicuously i can t condemn the framing of the Honor list. The last stanza suggests an immediate reason for this pleasant and trenchant reminder of the Tuluo to England of new Liolla poetry. Many admirers of his poetry will be surprised to learn that he could Lake a hand in amiable satire himself and to has written considerable criticism besides several novels. And was he not me editor of the Short lived monthly review when sir Edward Clarke. Icc., told an English audience that genuine literature ceased during Tho reign of Queen Victoria and that Tenny son. Browning and Carlyle. These three were the last of Tho nil that sort of thing Newbolt commented in Good natured you cannot write like Tennyson de ceased you do not sing like Browning in the least. Of Tennyson i Sanction every word Browning i Cut to something like on though. A mind you this immoral to is still quite two thirds i Hope will to for got. He was to poetry a Tom it la not by his novels nor yet by his Cratl slain that sir Henry Newbolt is great in English literature. It is by Hla Salt and racy fighting poetry of which Art Itell Luln citizens claim Job War upset meeting called to Forward movement for maintenance of neutrality. March to the austrian embassy shouting Down with Ger Many and Austria. Sex Tlle most important operations in who theatre of War Are those now being car ried out on an extended front in the carpathians. These mountains running in a wide curve Divide Hungary from Gaj Icia to Tho North and North cart and Bukovina to the East. As mountains they Are not very formidable and the passes through them Are mostly wide valleys with an Altitude of Only some feet this accounts for Tho ease with Willts Iong Dys Tances. A correspondent writes from pres to from British East Africa the forces reports from Holland arc that the three German cruisers which escaped from Tho naval Battle in Tho North sea arc All seriously damaged. With Tho von Dor latin already on the repair list the big Cruiser Squadron of Tho German Navy is out of business for some weeks to come. A raid against the English coast could be made Only by Light cruisers or slow it would toe practically certain to Endon disaster. Tho East roast of Englana is insured against raids from Tho son for Tho remainder of the Winter but the peril from zeppelins re Mains. Chagrin at the defeat of the Cruiser Squadron May indeed Lead to an attempt at revenge by Means of air Craft not much is heard of the War As carried on in East Africa where Tho German and British possessions to Side by Side for Pathan passes Are a Abunku. West of Cracow through which a railway runs to Breslau Tho tarnow.1 a High Mountain pass leading to Tho Valley of the Duniec River East of Cracow then the Duklas a wide Low Valley the Lup Kow through which the railway runs to Przemysla. Giving Access to the Valley moved the san the Zsok. With a railway to move Lemberg and the Vereczky or a Iszkow with a railway line to Styr. These Are Tho passes leading from Hungary to Foro the War. When they found them no longer suitable objects. Tempt they Hegan to hate them. By the time War is Over they will know More about the British and their hate if they choose to persist in it will at least be tempered with a wholesome respect. Politics the Selkirk record wants the St Peter s Reserve matter settled by the simple process of recognizing the Transfer Aud issuing titles to the pre proceeds go to the state. As to German Commerce i l up of German and hungarian German submarine in merely a further Galicia. Apparently Large armies made application of methods of warfare that i mini inn have been resorted to by the germans As Opportunity has offered Ever since the War began. German submarines sunk British merchant ships in the North sea and in the English Channel and they Ulso torpedoed without notice a French Hospital ship in Tho Channel. The Irish sea incidents Are chiefly notable because they reveal a widening area of operations. Only their very newest sub marines can operate so far from Home with any likelihood of being Able to re turn to their base. As the humiliating realisation of their inability to use their big War ships against Grea t Britain comes Home to them the germans will turn More and More to their Sumbur Hies and count upon them for reprisals of sufficient fright fullness to feed their grudge Nga not great Britain. U is Idle to Point out that the Ger mans Are thus violating the canons of sea warfare. They care nothing for the Laws of International morality. Funder the British maritime customs the Captain of a British ship could not even duplicate the feats of the Emden and the Karls Ruhe. He could no More Slop a German ship on the High seas order its Crew into their boats and then sink the ship than he could commit pm race. All the British Captain can do is to con Voy such n ship to a suitable British port and Thero intern 1l. An prize court then disposes of the ship and Ita cargo. Non contraband cargoes owned by neutrals Are their owners or paid for. The ship and. The if condemned arc sold auction and the Avail Abl divided into two main sections one to guard the Uganda railway and one to guard Thimons stretch of fron tier from the sea to Victoria Nyanza approximately 700 Miles. They Wero concentrated on certain vulnerable Points with orders to keep a watch on Tho Bor o engage Tho enemy unless in towards British East Africa. Tho germans made various at tempts to get through and interrupt communications Between Nairobi the capital of the protectorate and the coast. In one Case a party of the enemy succeeded in reaching the railway with a Good Deal of corps Ore trying to break through these 1 blot principally to the four Eastern passes and link up on of the country through which Northern slopes of Tho carpathians pre Paratory to a northward drive against the russians. There is nothing new about these tac tics they have already been twice tried. In october they partially successful to the extent of temporarily raising Tho siege of Przemysla but Lemberg remained in the hands of Tho russians. The rus sians rallied drove austrians through the passes and sent cossacks after them into Hungary. In december an austrian army stiffened by several German corps repeated the attempt. The left Wing of this army got through Tho Tarnow pass and forced the russians to fall Back from Cracow to the Dunajer River where Tho two armies Are still facing one another. Fur ther East the venture failed. A joint at tack by Tho beleaguered Garrison in Przemysla from the North and the invading army from the South by the Duk la pass met with defeat and again the austrians were driven Back into Hun Gary. Again the austrians arc attempt ing this stroke with apparently a greater forces in thelnore Easterly Tho Hope of Clearing Galicia. Re capturing Lemberg and the pressure from Bukovina. Tho russians on their part appear to to strengthening their forces in the Duwa pass Ullh the intention apparently of marching i into Hungary and taking the austrian forces in the flank. Austrians and Tho russians Aro thus trying to out Hank the other by seizing the passes destroyers which make this possible. These Are arid they had to pass and their sufferings from Lack of water they surrendered to the first patrol Thoy came across and were captured with All the dynamite be fore they were Able to do any Aiu armoured train patrol.

You will never find in Newbolt a note of boastful Ness in Victory for its own in Kipling s Imperial purple there is More than a full portion of prussian and i believe he is right even in the recessional there is one note that jars horribly.
