In what the present advices would
! indicate to ha.e been the greatest
naval battle of history, heavy losses
itivo hppn inflicted bv the Germans
tupon the high sea fleet of the British
navy. I
The engagement tool^ place in the
North -Sea Wednesday afternoon and
eight. The 'British admit the losses
of three battle cruisers, three cruisers
and eight destroyers. The Ger-!
mans admit the loss of one small
f cruiser and one pre-dreadnaught, j
while another cruiser and a number
of torpedo boats are missing.
As yet details are meagre as to th-?;
conditions under which the fleets met, |
but it appears that the battle was not J
fought out to a point to determine !
the mastery of the seas, for the'
(losses, serious as they are reported !
to have been, will not vitally impair j
the strength of either fleet.
It is probable that the German fleet;
was on one of the excursions into the j
North Sea which it has taken from
time to time during the war, and met, I
whether or not by design, with the '
British fleet.
rSkagerak is an arm of the -Nortn
Sea between Norway and Denmark.
The point referred to in the official!
German statement as Horn Riff prob- j
ably-is the reef off the Horn, on the
southwestern extremity of Denmrak.
From; there the distance to the coast
of Holland and the main German
f naval base in the North Sea is about
100 miles. j
(News of the engagement was held,
hack by the British authorities, posei'bly
pending the return home of the
fleet, and the first word received of
the battle came by wireless from BerThe

battle cruiser Indefatigable, for inW
stance, from which the German admir'
i alty reports only two men were &a\V
ed, probably had more than 9 ) me?:
B on board, and others of the vessels
W sunk carried complements of mei
& equally or nearly as large.
Previous to this battle Great Britain
had lost during the war ten bat
W tleships, eleven cruisers and various
| f smaller craft. Germany has lost
* eighteen cruisers, nineteen auxiliary
cruisers, chiefly converted passenger
k liners, and numerous smaller vessels.
Since fhe beginning of the war
">, British cruisers and destroyers have
|p patrolled during day and night the
V approaches to the German fleet's base.
[ "m the bay formed by the mouths of
4 the Elbe and the Weser, protected by
the misrhtv fortifications of Wilms
t haven on the south, on the north by
the supposedly impregnable defences
of the Kiel Canal, and guarded by
the outlying island of Heligoland.
Until the engagement, however, no'
German fleet- has put forth in force ,
- to necessitate the giving of the alarm
to the 'British main fleet that its foe
was coming out to give battle. The
rendezvous, of the British battle fleet
m has been a secret, but is generally
believed to have been in the Orkney
f Islands, north of Sotland. The long
r , months of watchful v.aitiixg by the
British, however, were broken into
* by two naval engagements in which
mf comparatively small squadrons of
(German warships were involved, and
in both of which the British were victorious.
On August 28, 1914, Admiral j
Sir David Beatty, on "his flagship, the
battle cruiser. Lion, led his squadron
in a daring dash into the Bight of
L Helgoland. In this engagement, under
the guns of this great fortress,
W three German armed cruisers and
f two destroyers were sunk with a loss
f of 2,500 men.
. On January 24, 1915, a German
f squadron, attempting a raid on the

Beatty off the Doggerbanks, and in s.
r running fight the German cruiser
Bluecher was sunk and two of her
warships set on fire. Several raids
fcave been made by detachments on
British coast in which. Yarmouth,
| Scarborough, Whitby, Hartlepool and
iiowestoft have been bombarded. The
last of these raids was made April 26
i?* occasion according
idtM) UU TT UAVU V 9 _
rthe German claim, aBritishdestroyer
and two scout ships were sunk.
| The most serious losses to the British
fleet hithetrto have been through
the operations of German submarines
and by mines. Such an instance occurred
September when the
Sritish cruisers Hog^ie, Cressy and
Aboufcir were torpedoed within an

hour by the German submarine U-9.
The German navy, however, performed
brilliant feats in regions far distant
from Europe, its most notable
victory being in the battle off Coro- J
nel, Chile, early in the war, when the j
German far Eastern squardron, at- j
tempting to reach home waters, encountered
a British fleet. In the battle
the Germans sent the British
cruisers Good Hope and Monmouth
to the bottom with all hands. A month
later a powerful British squadron
met the victorious Germans off the
Falkland Islands and of the five German
cruisers in the squadron four,
the 'Scharenhorst, the Gneisenau, the
^"urenburg and the Liepsig, were sent ;
to the bottom. The fifth, the Dres- J
den, escaped but was caught later at
Juan Fernandez and destroyed.
Great Britain admits the loss of
battle cruisers and cruisers with a
tonnage of 114.S10?represented by
the battle cruisers Queen Mary, Indefatigable
and Invincible and the
cruisers Defence, Black Prince and
Warrior. Germany s losses attui u- j
ing to the Berlin admiralty, in addition
to the Pom erne, were the 'Wiesbaden
and Frauenlob. small cruisers,
and several torpedo boats.
The Germans claim in addition to
the admitted losses of Great Britain
that the British battleship Warspite,
of the largest type in the British navy,
was sunk, that the battleship Marl1
v':*- O tnrnoHrt and
Dorougn was nit u > a. iu? (jvuu ??
that two cruisers of the Achilles type
(the Warrior is of this class) and one
submarine were sent to the bottom.
The British admiralty adds to the
conceded losses by Germany two
dreaduaughts of the Kaiser class?
vessels of 24,700 tons?destroyed, the
blowing up of one battle cruiser, the j
nf two other vessels of this |
cla.-s and the ramming and sinking o?
a German submarine.
The German battie cruisers Derf-j
flinger and Lutzow, one of which the j
British officially announced tonight j
was blown up, are vessels of the
same class. Each ship displaces 26.GUO
tons, is 689 feet long, 95 feet
beam, with a draught of 27 1-2 feet.
~"1 i,,
I fie Lvernunger was tumijicicu
July, 1914, and the Lutzow a year
later. The ships carried eight 12inch
guns, twelve 6-inch guns and
twelve 24-pounders. They also were
equipped with four torpedo tubes
each.
The Derfflinger once before was re
ported by the British to have been [
sunk when she participated in an en-<
gagement in the North Sea on January
24, 1915. A later report said
that she had been badly damaged in
the fight and was dry docked at Hamburs:
for repairs
The German cruiser Wiesbaden,
mentioned in the German official announcement
as having been sunk, is
not listed in the naval annals.

thought that the candidacy of Mr.

although no one admitted as
much today. It is thought definite
announcement will be made by ;Mr.
Stuckey in a week or ten days of bis
intention.
Should Mr. Stuckey run for governor
it will be on a platform with
the State warehouse system as the
main Dlank. and he will likely appeal
to the vote of the farmers and the
laboring people without regard to faction.
Mr. Stuckey is a successful
farmer himself and is a member of
the Farmers' Union, the secret Farmers'
association and a member of the
executive committee of the State
