I. ndon, June 8fc?Premier Asqulth to? day fulfilled his promise to receive a dep? utation of suffragettes which he nia?le when Miss Sylvia Pankhurst. after h?>r recent release from Holloway jail, took up her position on the doorstep of the House of Commons an<l threatened t> carry out a hunger and thirst strike | until the Prime Minister r? <eiv<?d a depu? tation of her r&uiradee, A party composed of six working women, members of Miss Pankhurst's F,ast aSnd IVderation, to-duy visited tt'? Prime MlnlatCT at his official residence in Downing street. A big crowd had gathered in anticipa? tion of the usual fight between the pottce Sad UM W4?nien. The pr"<'<.'??(linps, how? ever, were carriel out in perfect or 1er pt for a little roughness on the part Of some workmen who hod ''COCOS to see that thiir women got fair play." Th-tr presence proved to be ?uilt4; unnecessary, as the deputation, whpgg members -ar? rived in taxlcabs, was Immediately re? ceived by the Premier.

Mr. Asqulth nr gued that If every wbman over twenty one years of age possessed the vote they would still find legislative problems ie gardlng women exceedingly difficult of solution in the same way as the men hid found them. He agreed with the deputa? tion that If the franchise wer.? given to women it should be granted <>n the same terms as It w?s given to men.

ENGLAND'S RANK AS LEADING WORLD POWER THREATENED Y Can Retain Her Position Only by Increasing Army Navy to Keep Pace with France, Germany and Russia?Armaments Growing Everywhere. (From Th? Tribun? Correspondent.] London, June 13.-Tli* military cor spondent of "The Times" exsmlned t week the growth of Europe as an arn camp, and draws from his examin?t! the deduction that England must J< : France, Oermany, Russia and the les? European states In th*i Increase of 1 ! army and navy, or else loo?,e her posltl as one of the leading powers of the wor He predicts, Indeed, that unless Engla loes Increase tier arm?}d forces she w cease to be consl'lered by France ai Russia as a desirable member of tl triple entente, and will be left to shl for herself in the game of Furopean ?J plomaey. His llnal conclusion Is that "tl . time Is at hand when we shall have to <?., 1 India and the Dominions to our councl . to Gurvey the whole field of Imperial stra ? egy and to establish a defensive systei adequate to the n??eds of an Oceanic En I pire." In his survey of the growth of Et ropean armament, he says: "W<> naturally take stock in German first because this power .8 always forwar In armaments, and on the whole sets th puce Which other DOWeni h'ivc to llV? wit' if they can. Thcie has ben no 'lacken Ing of German prepsration for war, bu quit? the contrary. Now, as always, tin aim of Germany Is to obtain the larges poHBlble numerical values consistent wltt qvallty and to acquire the utmost fighting efficiency at the shortest notice. The per? sonnel of the German navy has been doubled In the last ten years and contin? ues to expand. Three new German ships of Dreadnought type are to be commis? sioned this year, and by the autumn Ger? many will have In full commission a great fleet of battleshlp.i and battle cruisers of whbh only a few will not belong to the I?r. adnought type. ?'ommerce raiding In war has been much discussed in Germany of late, nnd the retention of the battle : cruiser type is probably not unconnected with this discussion.

It may still take tlm< tilinga to settle down, but, broadly sp Ing, th?; army Is now mobilized ag and the Immediate risks arising troi delicate situation have been removed. "The covering troops on the Gen frontier arc now sufficient to meet type of attaque brusqu?e, and the p< strength of the French army as a wl 1 no longer presents that dangerous feriority to the i .crinan fltrure wl formerly caused such serious anxiety. the same time, France Is still much ferior t" Oermany in peace strength i ha? considerable fon.es tied up in No Africa.

She possesses no v? marked superiority over the Austro-It Ian navies in the Mediterranean, and I permanent presence of a strong Brltl ileet in this sea is one of the m j of the time. "The maintenance of the balance power between entente and tr?plice land depends now, and will depend at ; more in the future, upon the action Russia. The reply of Russia to the n< ?

"There are signs that Russia has done with defensive strategy, and the steady grcwth of her naval power In th* Baltic enable? her to act with vigor at aea. It Is possible that Russia Is not building Dreadnoughts for action In the Baltic and Black Sea alone. The Increased num? ber of guns In the Russian army corps, the growing efficiency of the army and the improvements made or* planned In strategic railways are, again, mattera v hi? h cannot he left out of account. Makes Germany Anxiou?. "These things are well calculated to make the Germans anxious. The Rang**? reply to the German law, combined with the sacrifices of France and the growth of the British navy, completely reverses the results which Germany expected from her naval and military laws. Neither In peace strength nor In aggregate war strength, nor in numerical strength at sea. will the tr?plice have any advantage 0*ef the entente when existing laws have worked themselves out. It is a question on which side quality will rest, for the naviex and armies opposed to Germany have longer servi? e than have hers. "The growth of armaments hau not been restricted to the leading militan' states. Austria steadily adds to her ef? fectives on land, and is committed to an ambltiouB and costly naval programme, which is already paralleled and will prob? ably be surpassed by that of Italy. Tr-.e Turco-Greek rivalry adds to the number of accountable battleshlpa In the eastern Mediterranean, and there has been one more reform of the Turkish army. Tho Balkan States are borrowing as much as they can get and are organizing fresh forces?for example, the twelve divisions of Servia?as fast as their state of ex? haustion permits. "Spain has plans for an army of 460,000 men and a ?eld army 215,000 strong. Swe? den Is developing her defensive prepara? tions. The Netherlands, hankering after Dreadnought?, are also busy with their coast defences and anticipate higher ex? penditure upon their field army. Finally. Belgium is working up to a field army.of 178.00ft men. Look where we will, arma? ments are growing and there Is no symp? tom anywhere of a change."
