BATTLE REPORTED CANARD.
The following was published in the Star - Eulletin at Honolulu yesterday
LONDON. Eneland. August 7. Winston Churchill, first lord of the British
admiralty, today made official denial of the report that the German fleet in the
North Sea had been routed yesterday with a loss of 19 shirs after a big sea-battle
between the Germans and the British fleet augmented by French vessels.
... - i . . . i
Speaking in the House of Commons, Churchill denied thai any naval names or
any losses had occurred other than those already officially announced. He said:
"Anart from the loss of the Koenigan Luise, the German mine planter, ana
the small cruiser Amphion, there has been no fighting and no losses.
"Of the Koenigan's crew, probably 130, fifty were saved.
"This indiscriminate scattering of mines about the seas not in connection with
strategic harbors is something new. It deserves the attention of the civilized world.
It might endanger neutral shipping."
Churchill also announced that hereafter the British government will organize a
press bureau and issue all reliable news consistent with military and naval expediency.
