Confidence in Naval Power
London The British government,
while regretting its naval losses dur
ing the war, is apparently in no fear
that its predominance in number of
fighting craft will be threatened ser
iously. "Britain can lose a superdread
naugbt every month for 12 month
without a single loss to the enemy,"
aid Winston Spencer Churchill, first
lord of the admiralty. In the bouse of
commons, "and yet be in as good a po
sition of superiority ss she wss st the
outbreak of the war."
Mr. Churchill declined to discuss
such topics aa the naval engagement
off Heligoland, the destruction of the
British cruisers Monmouth and Good
Hope off the coast of Chile and the
British naval expedition in Antwerp
prior to the fall of the Belgian for

. Peace Talk Denounced.
Berlin, via London The Cologne
Gazette declares that the report of
a German desire for peace, which it
says are probably inspired by the
British, belong to the "region of
higher political idiocy." "The posi
tion of the Germans, neither in the
East nor West," it continues, "is crit
ical. German military undertakings on
all the battlefield are progressing fa
vorably. Neither the military nor the
political situation contain any reason
which might make Germany desirous
to conclude peace."
Italian Accuse France.
Berlin Dispatches appearing in
Italian newspaper are to the effect
that molestation of Italian shipping by
the French is a part of a systematic
plan of the French to divert the mari
time trade of Genoa ' to Marseilles.
Word come from Rome that in North
ern Italy there is much feeling against
England, many foundries being closed
because of the seizure of copper and
lesd. British imports in October, ac
cording to Roma reporta, decreased 40
per cent, and the exports 60 per cent,
as compared with last year.
Germani'Sag No Change.
Berlin An official announcement
given out in Berlin says :
"English ship did not, attack the
coast of Flanders again Friday. There
hava been no actual change along tba
battle front in the western arena. To
the north of Lang-em arck, w hava
taken a group of house and made a
number of prisoners. Our attack in
the Argonne region has made further
progress. French attacks in the neigb
feorbood of Apremont were repulsed."

tween belligerent power only on those
by which it ha been ratified.
Soon after the. outbreak or the
European war it became evident that,
while they recognised in a general
way the spirit of the declaration, some
of the belligerent power intended to
insist on great modifications of im
portant details, basing their action on
the fact that they had not formally
ratified the convention.
Since the declaration wa in fact a
compromise between the extreme
view of the several governments,
which participated in the conference,
a high official here pointed out that it
would have been neither just nor fstr.
in the opinion of the government, to
consent to any modification without
the agreement of all parties.
The State department felt obliged
to withdraw from its adherence to the
declaration, even before the German
protest waa received.
It is said, however, that the Ger

the United States officials a sound.
Convict Demands Wage.
Providence R. L Arguments on the
constitutionality of the law authoriz
ing the state to mske contracts celling
the labor of prisoners without com
pensating them were heard before the
Rhode Island Supreme court. On the
ground that such enforced servitude
on the part of a prisoner is slsvery and
that the state constitution prohibits
slavery without making an exception
against convicts, the national commit
tee on prison labor is pressing the suit
against s garment company which
holds a contract for prisoners' labor.
Clergy Want to Battle.
Berlin The Evangelical clergymen
of Berlin and its suburbs have signed a
declaration against the military de
cree which says that student clergy
men, ordained, or clergymen who have
been pensioned msy not be celled to
arms. In their protest the clergymen
declare this decree cannot be justified
and is sn insult to them. All other
classes and professions have the honor
of being able to fight for their country
and they wouled do likewise. They
ars going to petition the reicbstsg to
revoke the decree.
