BERLIN, Aug. 7. In the decision or

Persius, the na'val expert of the

available ship of the British navy in

waning of the tense Anglo-German

From this point of view Cantain
Persius finds the action of the Rritish
Admirality of more importance to Ger
many than to the United States. He
says Germany also may fake similar
teps of reconcentration. He believes
that in general the decision was dic

British flag.than by actual necessity.

he gained recognition of the British

His natural gifts of construction won
him an appointment from the War Of

was relieved when Cody foreswore al

The English public began to take
Cody seriously when he carried off the
