MASON NEW YORK, Nov. 30. Winston Churchill's statement In the Houso of Commons, that by tho end dt 1315 Great nrltaln will have added 15 capital ships to her fleet nnd Germany three, requires certain qualifications. In stead of three, the German number must be Increased to nlno If dreadnought cruis ers are counted hh capital ships, as they alv.nje arc. and If Germany can expedite work on her nupcrdreadnoughta now on tho stocks. It Is probable. In fact, that Germany has already added five of these first-line vessels to her fleet. One, tho dreadnought drulser DerfTlnner, was being com pleted when war was declared. She Is of 18,000 tons displacement and is larger than nny vessel In the British fleet. Her heavy guns, however, are not of record power. Thero nro eight 12-Inch 60-callbro rifles, their weight having been sacrificed for a 30-knot speed. It Is probably that the Dorfflngcr'H sister ship, the Lutzow, which was to have been finished by next Janu ary, Is now also ready for service. A third ship of this class, tho Ersatz Hcrthn, wns laid down In July, 1913, nnd certainly will bo afloat before the end of 1015. NEW GIANT SHirS AFLOAT.

General Joffro was clad In un extremely plain, simple Uniform. Ho wore no dec orntlons or ribbons denoting honors which have been accorded him, though ho Is tho possessor of a Bcore of tho most Importnnt decorations. His uniform was a dark blue tunic, with a single row of gold buttons nnd threo silver stars on tho sleeve, red riding breeches nnd black boots.
