he was greatly surprised to find one Of

In tho commissary. They had been un

serting that the rear's armies were ter
ribly handicapped. Thousands of cases

veals the present outlook for Iluanla In
the light of letters he has received from

upon He eaya the letters all breathe a
heartening spirit, and continues:
"The i heck to the Slav arms has been
transformed Into a stimulus to more
vigorous efforts, has raised the political
temperature many degrees and has
tousod the most torpid elements of the
empire. Such a revival has not been
witnessed since tho Napoleonic In

man as writing to him that It Is hardly
too much to aillrm that the barriers
that heretofore sundered the people) nnd
th- Clovcrnmcnt hac been permanently
desttoyed. and that the Musslin nation
henceforth takes Its place among the

He Is convinced also thnt Hussla will
make good her promise to the Poles
and that sho may be trusted Implicitly
not to seek a separate peace.
Dr. Dillon's correspondents, while
gratefully acknowledging the services
of France and Rngland, say they must

SEES GERMAN CROPS
Neutrnl Traveller Snys Hope
of Great Harvest Is Doomed
to Disappointment.
Special Cable Dnpalch to Tun Scs,
London. Aug. 8. The Daily Mail
quotes an unnamed neutral citizen, who
has Just arrived from Hermany, as say
ing that Hcnnany's hope for a record
harvest Is doomed to disappointment In
consequence of a severe drought during
Mav nnd June. The newiDater says Its
' authority for this statement Is a man
J well versed In agricultural matters, who
' has made a careful study of tho situa
tion In Germany.
Notwithstanding the fact that an area
of unprecedented slie was planted to
grain the crop will be considerably less
than that of 1914. Only potatoes are un
usually abundant. The observer be
lieves that brcacistuffs are going to
prove a for more serious problem In
Hermany during the coming year than
they have In the year Just past, when
Germany had the- benefit of large reserve
supplies now exhausted.

"It Is wrong to fight for revenge," said

In proof of that fact. It Is wrong to
fight for nationalism, which fosteis a
sense of unfalrnets to either nations. Hut
it Is entirely right to light to secure such

"Mr. Hrynn denied this when he re

clated that nothing is worth fighting fur,
and he has many who agree with him.
"Is It ever right to fight? If no value
Is attached to wife anil child, If no value
Is attached to security from tyranny,
then llryau is right. In that casu
whether one fights or runs a way Is a

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.

however, that the first suggestion of

the charge that has been mado against
him thut he was Intriguing for the

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

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.

the Prime Minister, Lord Kitchener and
Mr. Llojd Heorge arc tho leading figures,
there are .rrany ciirrer nnd cross

make no attempt to disguise the fact

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

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. He has nlso been tho
