Long before Germany was to be reck
oned with as a sea power Switzerland
possessed a fleet equipped for warfare.
Eight hundred years ago on all the
larger Swiss lakes armed galleys were
maintained by tbe rival cantons. Sklll-
jed shipwrights bod to be Imported from
Genoa for the construction of these
vessels, some of which carried crews of
600 men. Tbe largest Swiss flotilla
was maintained on the Lake of Gene
ra, when the Inhabitants of GeneTa
were at war with Savoy. Since the
neutrality of Switzerland has been
cuaranteed by the powers there has
been no need for warships on the lakes.
The Swiss, however, possess a mercan
tile navy, which carriee a considerable
amount of trade over the 3-12 miles of
navigable waterways in tbe republic
