Ij.noN. June 23 (Wednesday). The
"neutral" correspondent of the Timet
quotes an officer of the C.erman Ocneril
Staff as saying:
"We must defeat the Hu.sslans. not
merely drive them back so that they
i-an come again but defent them utterly
and drive them back Into the heart of
Little Itussla. In the south wv must
free Hessarabla and offer It to Itunmul.i
for Immediate occupation in order to
preserve peace In the Halknns and itheti
push on, If possible, as far iu Odessa,
"In rhe north, the llaltlc provinces
will easily be cleared. Herman sym
pathies In Sweden will avert danger In
that epinrter nnd then we will be free
to turn our attention to the west and
undertake the invasion of England."
The writer detnils the views he found
among the Imperialists In all parts of
Herman)' us regards the future uperM
tlons. The main nrtlcle of their creed
Is this: "Calais Is the key to Herman
world (lower. Without It lasting pence
Is unattainable." Tho territory to he
annexed Includes not only Ilelglum, but
northern France as far west as Heick
liage, fifteen miles southwest of
Houlogne. Hetmauy will then have fill
rilled her mission and secured "her (dace
in the sun."
'Hermans believe," continues the cor
resH)tideut, "that by using Calais as a
base they call with their new guns, hav
lng a range of twenty-six miles, sweep
the Channel clear of hostile ships and
destroy Dover as n cover to the landing
of their troops. This Is to be carritd
out In smalt aluminum boats In readi
ness for that purpose. The submarines
will Insiite any further protection
"The Germans nie confident that the
confusion i exulting from an air raid uti
a stupendous sonle by all the Get man
air craft will permlt'the rapid advanco
of the landing force tn Mndon.
"in view of the nature of the present
military operations and the greater dif
ficulties that have been overcome In
other theatres of the war the German
plan cannot be dismissed as outside the
realm of possibility, even probability "
Tho writer records the persistent be
lief of Hermans that England will have
to pay the expenses of the war as all
other nations. Including Germany, will
be practically bankrupt. They base their
calculations on the Krench Indemnity
of I!i71 and say that Knglsnd will have
lo pay f 3,750,000,000 ( JtK.nO.OOO.OOO),
and that may be doubled before tho end

here to-day as highly significant.
In view of the character of the lte

German Government doe not wish Her

the Unlteel Slates, nor public opinion
in this country to bo Influenced by reck
less talk at Ui!s time. It is now be
lieved there Is no longer any room
to doubt the genuineness of other report
from Berlin that the German Govern
ment Is earnestly seeking to avoid eri

Count vnn Keventlow'a -articles, or
such extracts from them as were cableM
to this country, have been followed by
officials here. It is cotrMdered that
