Cnrrrspnmlrnt Tells nf Mlarht Kf fret of Warships' Shells. Special Cable IteipatcS to Tn Scs Unmn, June . The Dally Telegraph prints a long despatch from an nnony. inous correspondent who visited the Turkish imsltlens on the Dardanelles, left Constantinople on May on a Turk,,., freight imat and spent a week In thi village of Gnlllpoll, where he saw a I score of transports from which muni lions were landed. "A curious feiture of the town," h h.is, "is the number of large black nnd white signs here and there over many buildings to Indicate that they , , ate neutral properly, now xne owners j hoped thnt the gun pointers on the I ships In the Oulf of Saros would see i these signs I cannot explain. The fact I that several neutral structures, includ ing the base hospital nnd a mosque, wero lilt Impelbd Knvcr l'ashn to send i twenty-five French and twenty-five Eng j llsh civilians to be housed In different ! buildings.

Nona of them was Injured. Gnlllpoll .Not Destroyed. "The mosque is a blackened mass of ruins and the burnt out buildings or the town show the work of the big British gun. Yet Galllpoll Is by no means destroyed. That the Initial bom bardment was Justified Is patent from the fact that the headquarters staff of the Turkish army was stationed here. The base tins now been changed and no shells have fallen these for some time." The correspondent went on May 25 to Chanak. He says: "Two thousand shells an hour fell tn Chanak when the British fleet tried lo force the Narrows, according to the niculatlon of a neutral army officer present at the bombardment. In spl'o of this rain of gigantic projectiles ths casualties In the forts were but twenty- M killed and twice that number wounded. In Fort three shells struck Hamidleh thirty - the traverse and eventy-slx fell near by, yet but one pro jectlle struck an embrasure, this one kilting six men, wounding, twelve and dismantling a gun. This is proof enough that tho problem of ships attacking land ioi tlficatlons, even with the most pow eiful guns, still leaves an Insurmount able advantage with the forts. "Fort Niagara frowns on the strait where Leander swam across, now half blocked by a stranded hulk and a sunken transport. These are right where Xerxes's bridge spanned the strait. The Thraclan and Asiatic shores are crowded with batteries from which brown barrelled guns menace every yard of the waters. We row past Maldos, a I collection of roofless, shattered houses. Their empty windows stare down like the eye sockets of so many skulls. I'SHniir Nvtrpt l (inns. "When you bee the narrow passage jsncpt by fifty S Inch guns mounted thirty feet above the water the folly I of attempting to force It by the old 1 methods Is patent. That the allied fleet 1 suffered s little as it did Is a miracle. I Every Inch of the surface of thc waters Is plotted on :i rtlllcr maps In the forts and It needs but a moment's calculation to get the exact range of any ships entering the zone." The correspondent met Von Usedom south of the "Labyrinth," where we have advanced 100 meters. The fight ing, which ha been going on for a week, continues without Interruption for thla Important defence work, of which we now hold two-thirds. North of the Alsne and to the east of Tracy-lc-Mont, on the heights close by Moulln-sous-Trouvent, we have de livered an attack which resulted In Important gains. After a most effi cacious bombardment we captured, In one dash, two successive lines of trenches and several defence works along a front of one kilometer. Three violent counter attacks Mv been repulsed by our troops, who cap tured more than two hundred prison ers and three 7" millimeter ftuns. In Champagne, near Ueaueejour, we have made progress through the ex plosion of mines placed by us. On the heights of the Meuse and In the Vosge artillery combats have occurred.

WAREHOFSES ARE EMPTY Special Cable Deepalch to Tne Scs. London, June . The neutral corrc rpondent of the Times In Oermnny tele graphs that If there Is any real depres sion In Oermnny It Is In shipping clr c'.es. No Industry, he say, hns been hit so hard by the wnr nnd nowhere Is the economic Isolation of the Umpire, so apparent as nt Hamburg nnd llremeii. During a visit there the writer found the docks practically deserted. The ships were Idle and ft general sllenco was prevalent over the quay. He says that the quiet strangely recnlts the fact that 18,000 ships entered Hamburg an nually under peace conditions, while the Incoming ships now may be counted on the fingers of one hand. The scaborno tnde has almost entirely ceased, only a few small coastwise vessels and steam ers from Scandinavian ports arriving. The warehouses, he says, are almost empty and many of the offices nre closed., Many residents of the city hnvc left nnd the place Is now one of nbsolute commercial Insignificance. One result of tho wnr hns been a great change In the attitude of Hamburc residents toward the Kngllsh. Formerly the city was one of the most Kngllsh of Oer man cities, whereas now the hatred of Kngllsh people Is very Intense. Tho newspapers nre especially fierce In their feeling against everything that l British. At the naval shipyards on the North Sen coast, he says, work Is going on day and night under high pressure. Luo beck has regained some of Its lost Im portance, ns It gets now the greater part of the Holtlc trade. The correspondent has found ehlppcrs confident that there will be a complete resurrection of the shipping Industry after the wnr and that Germany will secure a leading place In tho world's commerce.
