ROME, Nit. 25. via London. Nov. 27.
A great battle may be fought soon
alone; the Suez CanaL
A railroad line is now open from
Berlin to El Arish in Northwestern
Egypt on the Mediterranean Sea. Ger
many finally has cut a path to the spot
where it may endeavor to strike at Its
most hated and least vulnerable enemy
Britain. It in no secret that Germany
on several occasions has urged France
to make a separate peace, offering the
most generous conditions in order to
have a free band to deal with Britain,
but each time France has refused.
Turkey ta Play Isaportaat Part.
Now Germany, having taken advan
tage of the allies' blunders to crush
Serbia, Intend to let Turkey hence
forth play an important role in Its
struggle. It battle line at present
extends almost continuously from the
North Sr to the Fersian Gulf, with
little spurs in the Caucasus and near
the uex CanaL Vet, although the
Germans have reached a point whence
Britain can be struck In a sensitive
spot. It remains to be considered
whether such an attack can be suc
cessfully put into effect,
For all their striking successes the
German-Austrlan-Bulgarlan and Turk
ish allies are still sandwiched in be
tween enemies and passible enemies.
Germany. In endeavoring to strike
Egypt, counts either on sending a
strong army of German and Turkish
troop, which, flrut driving back the
British outposts, will block the canal
and invade Egypt, or on the effect of
a general uprising of the Mohammed
ans throughout the entire world or on
Lines ef Sapply Will Be In safe.
The difficulty with the first i that
tbo large number of German troops
which would have to be aent far from
Germany would have to be supplied
over unsafe lines of communication.
But the Austro-Germans are not re
lying wholly upon themselves, in a
short time the Kaiser, "the favored of
the prophet," as he has been named,
.presumably will visit Constantinople
and raise tha cry of a "holy war"
throughout the Moslem lands. The
next point to ba considered la whether
he la likely to get a favorable re
sponse. Let us itemize the situation:
1. India, cut off from Turkey by the
Russo-Brltlsh occupation of Persia, Is
Arab will Not Reepond.
2. Tha Arabs, lured by British fold
and tha flattering promises of the
British residents, whom the British are
careful to place with each principal
Sheik, and always resentful of the
Constantinople caliphate, certainlr will
not heed a call to arms.
3. Although the young Egyptian
party, with Its headquarters In Switzer
land, nourishes hatred for the British,
this party Is almost wholly aristocratic.

It had been indicated, she said, that
