Retaliation for Declaration
of War Zone.
NOT TO RISK
England and H1er Allics have An.
s errd tile Threat of a Blockade of
Engllish Ports by Deiarlng Every.
thing Contralmnd of War.
London, Alarch I.-England and her
ali es have answered Germany's
declaration of a awar zone in the wa
tors around the British Isles and the
coast of France -by retaliatory ines
ures which will be undertaken iinie
dlately to prevent commodities of any
kind from reaching or leaving Ger
The measures will be enforced by
the British and French governments,
as the text of the British note -puts it,
"without risk to neutral shipping or
to neutral or non-combatant life and
in strict observance of the dictates of
Tho announcement was made by
'Premier Asquith in the British par
liament today and apparently the
government's action is a matter of si
preme satisfaction to the British pub
lie and press.
The operations of the allied fleet in
the Dardanelles, as perhaps presag
ing quick developments in the Balkan
situation, dominate the military situa
tiOn on sea and land. Tho more op
timistic expect Constantinople to fall
but there is a noticeable disposition
to realize that the ships face no easy
task, no'twithstanding the 20 mile
range of the guns of the superdread
nought Queen Elizabeth.
Whether any progress has been
made since the outer forts were doe
mollshed has not been mado known
officially, a statement lssued to0ight
saying 'that. rough weather is 11ider
ing operations an(] maiiiking it ex
tremely hazardous, if not 1mpossile,
for aeroplanes to tace wing froni the
ships for observations necessary to
direct tile fire.
The interest which the British peo
ple are taking in these operations is
evidlced by tile frequent official
statemen s regarding them.
Little of importance has occurred
in the west and of the operations in
the east the Russians are claiming
much and tie Germans saying little.
There are signs that the Russian
armies are feeling their way, prepara
tory to a vigorous offensive. Germany'
has conceded that tile Russians have
retaken Prznsnysz, north of Warsaw,
end tile lusslans are still elaborating
on its strategic importance.

At a meeting of farmers at the

of fertilizer, of which 201) tons were
mixedi at a saving of '$1,000, Etight
huindredi tonls were bouighit alread1(y
