riving Since Blockade Be
gan, Lacazc's Assertion.
TEST OF ENDURANCE.
"Germany's PillCll Not to He
compared Willi Ally Ull
tente Experiences."
FAHIK. IV b. 22. "If Germany In
hulldlng up hopes that her new sub
tnuilne blockade will cut off tho Allies'
supplies, decrease their military
strength and thus end tho war these
hopes are misplaced. The blockade
will never succeed."
Admiral Lacaze, France's Minister
of Marine, gave this reply to-day
when nskeA for a message to America
on bow Trance views tho German
HUhmarlno war.
"It was German trfcklness that In
augurated 'commercial submarines,'
ostensibly to carry merchandise, but
In reality to supply war submarin
on the open sea." the Admiral do-
dared.
"It Is Imposslblo for me to
see how competent Gorman ofilclala
believe their now movo which Is said
to be alinod principally at France and
Italy can achieve tho hoped-for re
sults. On the whole, It cannot change
condltlono much from the past
"If the German people aro looking to
tho submarines for peace let them take
cognizance of tho fact that slnco the
beginning of tho blockade on Feb. 1
lbout the name number of Frtneh
mercnntllu ships havo been arriving
nt our ports an before. The total
was more than n. hundred dally. That
figure Is Immutnblc.
"I do not believe- conditions will
ohangc much from 1916. when tho
average of French Imports doubled
from '-',500,000 tu D, 000,000 tons
monthly.
"Also, since the beginning of the
war wo have doubled our seaboard I
Import. The blockudo may reduce
the present llgtlro homewhat. but It .
Is materially Impossible for tho Ger
mans to abolish these Imports.
"Tnko tho two main French Im
ports coal and flour. Tho enemy
hn been able to idnk only a llttlo
over hnlf of t per cent. .0053 Is tho
exact figure of tho general average,
on coal,' while the flour loss Is less
than 1 per cent. This flour loss does
not equal the amount tho French
baker normally wasteH.
"This Is the third time the Oer-
mans havo announced merciless sub
marine warfare. Twlco climaxes of
violence wero briefly reached then
they subsided. Tho losses of world's,
tonncgu in tho past havo never been
such as t bring about n critical con
dition as far a the allies' supplies
ure concerned.
"Kven suppose that the German
submarines destroy mora than for
merly, the situation simply reaolven
Itself Into tho question an to who Is
ble to hold out tho longest, (lor
oiany. long Immersed In economic
difficulties. Ik now deprived of nil sea
trndo except that of HcandlnavU. Tho
Kntento's margin, on tho other hand.
Is still of the widest.
"Tho worst that can befall us is
moru rigid restrictions to civilians,
ltcst assured we'll keep all necessi
ties. Iiut this is merely hypothetical
wo haven't begun to worry about
supplies."
The Admiral reiterated his disbe
lief that tho protagonists of ruthless
submarining wero ever greutly op
posed In German olllclaldnm.
"My opinion Is," ho explained, "that
such a dlffcrenco of opinion was an
nounced for effect on neutrals. A
similar German trlcklness Is apparent
In the Inauguration of commercial
submarines. Ostensibly they wero to
arry mercnnnuiso. in ronniy nicy
were built to "supply war submniinus
on the open seas.
"In my opinion tho real Inward
psychological
motive of Germany's
r.ew sea rrlgntnunojs was based on
Germany's knowludgo that It cannot
bu .suro of thn results at which It
iituiH through Its military power and
that theroforo Germany Is attempt
ing to reduce tho Allied morale by n
last lllng of brute strength. Hut that
name hruto stronsth foiled against
French valor nt Verdun, at tho
Marne, on tho .Soiumo am) elsewhere.
"The longer tho war laMii thu more
the Germans must reallzu that bruto
strength Is worthless. If yuu ask
who will bo victorious In this war,
nn answer is ii will be the party hav
ing the will and morale to hold on
from month to month, from day to
dav, from hour to hour.
"Germany Is now feeling a pinch
whiuh li not to be compured with un
experienced by the Kntente."
Admiral Un aze would not revenl
tho meaim by which the French navy
is combating Uio submarlno cam-
p.ilRii. but bis ulr of confidence wui
Hunlrient to inuienie complete sue
