Germany cannot get to the United
Statea. at least until the present trou
ble In Europe Is over. And it would
be half a year at least before the Unit
ed Statea could send an army over to
Europe. But it does not necessarily
follow from this that the United States
could not make its wrath felt at once
iln case war were declared.
I The first offensive more that the
United State could make against Ger

and Kronprinx Wilhelm Interned at
Norfolk; a gunboat held at Honolulu.
S merchant steamers, aggregating
S27.29S gross and 302.2S9 net tons in
varlou porta, and th merchant steam

The total tonnage of these ship 13
has been placed by experts at $100,000.
000. Fifteen of these ships are owned
by the North German Lloyd and 25 by
the Hamburg-American line. The
largest of them is the Vaterland of the
Hamburg-American line, which has ac
commodations for 2.264 passengers and
a crew of 923 men, and a speed of 24
knots. The George Washington is sec
ond in size, with accommodations for
1.773 passengers and a crew of 523,
and a speed of 19 knots. Fifty-four of
the ships are German and the remain
der are Austrian.
In the event of war the cruisers
Trinz Eitel Friedrich and Kronprinz
Wilhelm could be placed at once in
i active service as battleships along
with the other ships of the United
Now this country is weak on trans
ports. There are only seven of them.
But suppose Uncle Sam commandeered
the 69 merchant ships of Germany and
Austria in this country and used them
for transports and ships for passen-
about 400.000 net tons and the.r value gers and general merchandise, and
utilized the two German cruisers now
Interned in conjunction with our own
cruisers as convoys wouldn't that be
a great help to the allies, and wouldn't
these additional ships increase the sup
plies for the allies and facilitate the
movement of their troops, and wouldn't
the additional warships tighten the
blockade around Germany and Austria
and make it more difficult than ever
for supplies to get into those countries?
A board of fire men, three federal
