CEPAnnt'iisT, I.. 1., July 26. An offi
cial In cloe touch with the Herman
Embassy here said to-day that no con
flict of opinion would arise over tho
Inking on Sunday of tho American
freight steamship Ieelanaw by a tier
man submarine. The facts surrounding
the loss of the ship. It was stated, are
more In favor of the Herman (lovern
ment than In the case of the Krye.
Tha Leelnnaw, It was explained was go
ing from ono belligerent port to another,
whereas the Kr.vo was going from a
neutral to a belligerent port. The only
point of disagreement. It was snld, that
could arise over this recent caso would
be as to whether or not tho (lermau
Government should pay for the Lecln
naw. The Herman Government will not
Iih responsible for the loss of the contra
band cargo carried by the vessel.
It Is the belief of Herman officials
htre, It was also learned, that the Her
mans could not have saved the ship
even had the attacking vessel been a
omlser instead of a submarine. It
would have been Impossible even for a
cruiser to have taken the ship as a
prise back to shore.
It has been learned that Herman offi
cials In this country are convinced that

London, July 26. H. Ashmesd-Bart-lett,
correspondent for the Londjn news
papers In the Dardanelles campaign,
emphasizes the terrific task of the Allies
on Galllpoll peninsula In their tight
against the Turks.
In detailing the advance of the French
nnd Kngllsh ngalnst the Turks of July
12 and 13 be says that any una who has
not seen the ground can form no con
ception of the obstnclcs the French and
Hrltish Infantry have had to face In
gaining ever a few yards of fresh soil
In three montna The Turks have con
structed a perfect network of trenches
and small redoubts, all irroteMed tiy
barbed wire entanglements connected by
saps and communicating trenches.
"The majority of our casualties oc
cur," be writes, "In holding the trenches
after they are won, for the enemy,
knowing the ground and plan of the
trenches better than our men, attack
them with homhs through saps.
"Parties of our men get too far for
ward and are frequently lost for hours,
while It Is no uncommon occurrence for
our men to gain possession of an ad
vanced trench while the Turks are still
holding a section of those behind them.
"Thus after each advar.ee It takes
n long time to straighten out and con
solidate a captured position. The cost
ol this particular kind uf warfare can
be worked out with almost mathemati
cal exactness; for so mmy men must
be sacrificed, so many shrllH, so many
hand grenades for every fresh hundred
yards occupied. It Is bludgeon work,
biutal and unattractive, giving little
or no scope for skill or tactics or strat
egy. "The slttiatlci Is exactly the tamt
au at Vpres and Souchet on the Achl
Haba front. Victories cannot be won
In a day any more than they can b
won In France ; for sections of the en
emy's line must first be pounded to a
pulp, then stormed und finally held
against counter attacks. The Turkish
positions are appallingly strong. They
resemble n giant ploughed field wherein
the successive lines ol trencher take the
place of furrows."

Plan Thought to Indicate Con
fidence Pension Hill
Must, Wait.
Sprcjal Valilr HfunUeh In Tnr. Si v
London, July 20. There could be no
better Indication of the Government's
confidence In tho ptescnt situation than
that found In the design, fotered by t!i
Government, to give Parliament a ix
weeks vacation.
Premier Asfjulth announced In the
llnii'c of Commons to-day that he saw
no reason to Interfere with the plan Tor
such n holiday. It seems likely, how
ever, that so long n holiday will not be
permitted without opposition from snmu
of the members. Sir Ilenty Dalzlel, for
Instance, moved to-day that a four
weeks holld-iy be taken Instead uf one
lasting six weeks.
There Is some opposition to the
Premier's plan In the House of Lords
as well. The question was hroua.hl up
to-day In connection with the unity nnd
navy pension bill, which the Govet it
ment desires to have passed before the
vacation begins. The view was held,
however, that the bill was of too Kicil
Importance, to be rushed through and
should be examined at leisure. To the
Government's objection that the bill
should not be delayed during a vii-.itlou
o' six weeks the reply was made that
tho perhel be shortened to four Weeks.
Finally the motion to defer the second
rending of the bill until nfler the holi
day was carried by a voto of 41 to 31
The postpom ment of the pensions bill
In the House uf Lords was deiiouti,-cd bj
srme of the members In the Houo of
Commons, who declared It was cruel to
keep soldiers and dependents waiting
for allowances to Willi h thc.v would be
