APPARENT TO GERMANY
A Result of the British Naval Maneuvers
In the North Sea
German Expert Believes That the Maritime Su
premacy of Great Britain is Only Theoretical and
He Explains Why.
Berlin, 'July 26. Great Britain's
hope that her recent gigantic man
euvers in the North sea would make
Germany realize her helplessness in
face of her present isolated position
has come to naught if one is to
judge by the expressions of the Ger
man military expert.
Colonel Gaeake, one of the greatest
German naval and military authori
ties, in an article in the Berlin Tage
blatt, openly says that if any power
is helpless it is England and not
Germany, and that in case of a war
the former country would be de
feated as completely as was France
Says the Colonel: It certainly does
not appear that the British minister
of war, Jlr. Ilaldane. will achieve
success with his territorial army.
There can be no doubt whatever
that this new army which is in
tended to protect England from in
vasion will be, apart from its numer
ical weakness, a "citizen army" of
no military value whatever.
Mr. Haldane's army reforms are
based on the supposition that Great
Britain has alsolute command of the
sea. It is true that Great Britain
can theoretically at any moment op
pose a fleet of twenty battleships.
twelve first-class cruisers, thirteen
protected cruisers, sixty-two destroy
ers and torpedo boats, and thirty
nine submarines to the German ac
tive fleet, consisting of sixteen bat
tleships, Ihree cruisers, six smaller

'so that England is safe If her war-
f ships are In perfect fighting condition.
But there appear to be many de
fects. The admiralty does not keep
the fleet in proper fighting condition,
perhaps from motives of economy.
Wealthy England can always out
strip us in the speed with which
battleships are built. But there is
another question, whether England
can find the necessary number of
men to provide crews for the fleet.
Germany is In possession of an in
exhaustible source in conscription,
but England will certainly experience
great difficulty in finding men.

Against Tyranny of Ameri
can Beef Trust"
The Government Accused
ot Aiding and Abetting
London, July 26. The American
beef trust was violently denounced
and the British government ope-tly ac
cused of assisting the greedy Amer
ican octopus in preventing tha people
of England from getting their beef
steaks at a reasonable price at a meet
ing of the National Federation f
Meat Traders Association held In this
city yesterday, and a resolution was
passed complaining of the f.tringency
of the regulations restricting the land
ing of foreign animals into this coun
try. In order to obviate the effects
of foreign control systematically reg
ulating our meat supply, the govern
ment was asked to appoint immedi
ately a committee of the house of
commons to inquire Jnto the matter
with a view of adopting remedial
measures. Strong complaints w ere
made against tfie board of agriculture,
and a deputation wan appointed to
wait uion the prime minister.
Lord Robert Cecil wrote that in his
opinion there was grave rtpson to fear
that the beef trade in this country was
orofoundly affected by the operations
of a foreign trust. Th matter ap
peared to him eminent! v one for In
qi.iry, by a select mniltUc of the
Inuse of Commons, awl he would d
his utmost to secure ztu- appointment
of such a committee.
Air. B. Strauss, M. P., said he was
surprised that a great free trade gov
ernment such as this should keep up
these protectionist " practices. The
whole danger of importing cattle into
this country was to the American
meat trust, which was ruining this
country for all it was worth for its
own purposes. Our government was
hoodwinked by this trust. But they
had put their shoulders to the wheel,
and meant to keep them there. As to
helping the agricultural districts of
this country by -the present policy, he
called It all "ort" and "bogey." The
government was simply playing Into
the hands of the meat trust the
greatest combine the world had ever
seen, and this question was the most
iniquitous whic h had ever come before

Willemstad, Curaeoa, July 26. The
relations between Venezuela and the
people of Curaeoa are strained to the
breaking point following a long series
of what the Curacoans regard as an
tagonistic action on the part of Castro,
directed against the Dutch govern
ment. Mobs gathered last night and
today and an attack was made by a
thousand people on the home of a Ven
ezuelan who is accused of publishing
articles in the newspapers derogatory
to Curaeoa. They broke down the
door and compelled the man to sign
an elaborate aiology and forced his
family to play the Dutch national
hymn. The peofle shouted "down with
Castro." Later there was a demon
stration before tin? residence of the
Venezuelan consul. None were in
jured. The police were powerless and
the troops were finally called out. The
Venezuelan consul was escorted from
his house to his office by a large body

A Great Demand in the North for the
Products of the Valley.
William P. Crump returned yesterday
afternoon from Gallup and Albuquer
que, N. M , In both of which towns he
placed a car of Salt river valley wat
ermelon. Besides selling watermel
ons he obtained large orders for Ari
zona cantaloupes, tomatoes and grapes.
Mr. Crump says the only barrier to a
huge trade for this valley in northern
Arizona and Xew Mexico are the ex
press rates. The express on canta
loupes to Albuquerque, for example,
being just two and a half times their
cost in Phoenix.
This was Mr. Crump's first visit to
Albuquerque since last December when
he sold a car of Arizona oranges there.
An open sesame to their universal re
membrance of him and a cordial wel
come was an inquiry as to whether
they had sold those "Arizona oranges"
yet. They all replied affirmatively and
added that they were anxious for .an
other cur as soon as the season open
ed. He met the gentleman who ship
ped1 a box of the oranges to Scotland.
He said they arrived there in good
shape. The people in Scotland who
tasted them united in saying they
were the finest oranges ever eaten
there, and one firm wanted the agency
for them. Incidentally the express on
them was about J7.S0.
Mr. Crump saw Tom Llnvllle, a
rhoenix young man, who is running
an exceptonally neat, clean and at
tractive grocery store there and who
keeps in touch with Phoenix by means
