BATTENBERG KEPT FLEET MOBILIZED Prince, Not Churchill, (lave the Famous Order to Pritish Navy. ADMITS IT IN AHTICIK Special Cahti Itopatcl, lo Tiik Si v. Lonpon, Aug. S. Much Interest has been aroused by the confirmation from I'rlnce Louis of Hatlcnberg that It was he I -mil not Winston Spencer Churchill who , Issued the famous order to mobllUo the licet at tho beginning of the war. From the oulset Mr, Churchill, then I First Lord of tho Admiralty, has re 1 celved the highest praise for his fore sight In having the Ilrltlsh lleet mobilized nt the critical moment. Homo time ago, however, F. T. June, a well known naval expert, publlclv announced thnt I'rlnce Louis of llnttenbcrg de serves this credit. It will be recalled that shortly after tho war began I'rlnce Louis of Hnttenberg resigned ns First Sea Lord because of bitter criticism di rected against him, based chiefly on the fai t of his Gorman descent. And now comes the article by the Prince himself In tho Slamlurd finally clearing the matter up and making It i plain that It was he and not Mr. i Churchill who ordered the. mobilization of the fleet. "When tl. war ramo," says Mr, .lime, "the Ilrltlsh navy was ready and wait ing. This fact Ih generally put down to Mr. Churchill. We have all read It In the press and we havo nil believed It. Hut It was the First Sea Lord of those dnyii, Prince Louis of IJattcnbcrg. who kept the lleet together. He II was who saved us from the horrors of llelglum." Tho confirmation of Mr. Jnno's asser tion as It appears above Prlne-o Louis's signature In the ,Sfemifim! Is: "It Is qulto tl. that It was our humble servant and not Mr. Churchill, who wns spend ing the week end at Cromer with his wife. It was 1 who ordered nit ships to stand fust tusteud of demobilizing as ordered." It Is recalled that Mr. Churchill him self admitted this fact when he wrote Prince Louis after his retirement. 'The first step which secured the timely concentration of the fleet was taken by you." said Mr. Churchill at that time. Sir H. S. Itoberlson, M, P, explains why Prince Louis did not let the world know before the great service he had performed for his country by keeping the lleet mobilized. He says that Prince Louis seemed to think that If the facts were published some sort of Injury to the national Interests might result. It Is generally ngrced that the action of Prince Louis saved Kngland from Invasion at the outbreak of the war. Mr. Jane sajs that 100.000 Herman troops were actually embarked nnd were on their way to the east coast when the unexpected preparedness of the Ilrltlsh fleet miulo them turn buck. An effort to tlnd Mr. Churchill, that ho might confirm the claim of Prince Louis, has eleveloped the fact that ho Is busy painting In a little farm house which he has taken In Lancaster. Ills duties as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster evidently leavo him plenty of spare time. MEETS TWO AIRSHIPS AND TWO SUBMARINES Ainericnn Skipper on Same Dny Kseaped ltuiinin Into (ionium Mine.

It Is not generally known however, that the first suggestion of the appointment Insldo tho Cabinet camo from Lord Haldane, qulto contrary to the charge that has been mado against him thut he was Intriguing for the position himself. Lord Kitchener wns backed ny .Mr. Asquun, Mr i.uwaru Hrey, Uird Haldane and Mr. McKenna nnd has always counted Mr. Llod Heorge as a very critical colleague.

Mr Lloyd Heorge's Casslus Is apparently Lord Northcllffe This editor was, as has been said, an ardent supporter of Iairrt Kitchener's appointment to tho Wnr Office, but when It was first known, -and mainly through Lord Northellffe's p.ipers, that the Hrltlsh nrmy had suf fered wofully from lack of high ex plosives Lord Northcllffe at onco nr- ' ralgned Iird Kltrhener as the culprit In the leading Hrllrle In tho Daily Mail, which cnusel a sensation that will never bo forgotten. . It Is said that this aitlcle was pub llshed with the knowledge nf Mr Lloyd Heorge, and almost certainly with the 1 knowledge of three or four Radical mem- I bers nf ra?llament who have since ' been carrying on a steady line of crltl- , clam, really amounting to attack, on Iord Kitchener nnd Mr. Asqulth In the House of Commons. It has also been sild that Sir John French waa con sulted In connection with the attack upon Kitchener, but I have good reason for believing that this Is not tho case, although It seems likely that George Moore, Sir John French's Intimate frlwl,! who has recently been In America and Is himself an American, knew a good Ideal about the matter. 1" tills political turmrll In which the Prime Minister, Lord Kitchener and Mr. Llojd Heorge arc tho leading figures, there are .rrany ciirrer nnd cross currents.

Comment by another section of the party appeared In Rvynoltli'a .Wirsjinper last Sunday. This Sunday papor has been of Importance of late years In the eyes of serious people owing to the fact that lis editor and managing director, Sir Henry Iulr.lel. M. P., who runs the i papor on behalf of the receivers, is a groat personal friend of Mr. Llcvyil Heorge. On several occasions the paper hes proved exceptionally well Informed on political matter", especially matters wherein Mr, Llod Heorge Is prominently concerned. Iaat Sunday's article, which has attracted attention, says: ninnies l.losil IJoorno. "The truth Is Iord Haldane's speech was Intended to be an niltl-Heorge spee.-.h. If the truth must be told It Is that there nas Deen some- .ui e '. n,,in. t, Mlnl.ier ! m,,i,u, '.inc.- his aiinolntment. It men who overnment and hn ,,,,.(i j,y 50me who re-naln .

The article goes on lo explain how Haldane's speech (and It must not be forgotten that Mr. Asqulth In nis ! P", frlo1' w!th,!!!" J'? t'LTZ ii.,,, mi, I, iu.,11 , - ,,,..- v. ,. ... - - dls.icreomcnt In anything) practically amounted to "putting a pistol at the J head of Mr. Llod George and daring him to dlsmls Von Ponop." Tho Daily Chronicle, Liberal Oov- ernment org-.u. Ir. Its political column cheerfully suggested that tho dismissal t of Von Donop would entail the reslsna i ' 1'0rJ Kitchener. i Th.. I'umnalirti ci critic sm levelled at the Prlmo Minister nnd Lord Kitchener has been chiefly carried on in the Hou-o of Commons by means of questions ad dressed to Ministers. The leaders of this campaign are Sir Henry Dalalel and Sir Arthur Markham. They are 1 both Radicals, and return time after time to the charge against their chief. No Ministerial snub can daunt them. Time after time answers are refued to their questions on the ground that It would be contrary to the public Interest, Still they proceed to put their qiiestlons, and thero Is Ko doubt that in splto of Mr. Aaqulth'h and the other Ministers' re fusal to reply or to give opportunity for debating the subjects they wish threshed out In the House tho questions them selves give publicity to the grievances to which they are meant to draw public at tention. It was Sir Henry Dalzlel who brought the' chargo In tho House of Commons against Hen. von Donop and demanded his dismissal.
