Kiau-Chau Protectorate In
, China is on the Yel low Sea. ISLANDS IN PACIFIC OF STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE Seat of Government Is in Bismarck Archipelago?Other European Pos sessions in Far East. Germany's colonics and dependencies In China and the Pacific, threatened by" Japan's ultimatum, consist of Kiau Chau. a protectorate in northeastern China, on the Yellow sea, and in the Pacific, German New Guinea, composed of Kaiser Wilhelm's Land, the Bis marck archipelago, the Caroline Is lands, the Palau Islands, the Marianne Islands, the Marshall Islands and the Samoan Islands of S&vail and Poplu. These Pacific Islands have an esti mated area of 9?,160 square miles and a population of 857,800. Kiau-Chau has an estimated area of 200 square miles. This is exclusive of the bay with an area of about 200 square miles and the neutral zone of about 2,500 squire miles, having a population of 1,200,000. The estimated population of Kiau-Chau is 168,900, of which the whites number 3,896, almost exclusively Germans and including the garrison on peace footing. Germany's Pacific possessions, the first of which was acquired in 1884 and the last in 1899, are administered by an imperial governor. Kaiser Wilhelm's Land, on which copra, sago and precious woods abound, has a population of about half a million natives and 700 white men, virtually all Germans. Seat of Government. In the Bismarck archipelago, composed of eight principal islnads, Herbertshohe, the seat of government of the Pacific possessions, is located. The Solomon Islands are owned in part by Germany, smaller ones to the east of Bougainville having been trans ferred to Great Britain in 1899. The Caroline, Palau and Marianne, the latter sometimes known as the Ladronne Islands, all form part of the German New Guinea protectorate. They were acquired from Spain in 1899 for about $4,000,000. The native popu lation is 55,000, with about 200 Ger mans. The Marshall Islands are two chaips of lagoon islands, several uninhab ited. and have been German since lS6o. In a population estimated at 15,000, less than 200 are European, nearly all German. The chief export is phos- j phate. The Samoan Islands belonging to I Germany are Savaii and Opolu, with an area of 1,000 square miles. They j are-paramount .among Germany's Pa cific possessions for their strategic im portance, and are fertile and well wa tered. Apia, the principal port, has regu lar steam communication with New Zealand and Canada, a wireless station has been erected and others are under construction on othr islands. Acquisition of Xi&u-Ch&u. Germany's acquisition of Kiau-Chau, the evacuation of which Japan has demanded, followed closely upon the acquisition of areas of interest and spheres of influence in China by for eign powers. Until 1895 no foreign power, aside from the Portuguese and English, had been allowed to hold pos session on or near tho coast of China. Japan acquired Formosa by treaty in that year, Russia secured a con cession for the Manchurian railway and France obtained a rectification of the frontier of Tongking. Germany's seizure of Kiau-Chau, in retaliation for the murder of German missionaries by Chinese, followed in November, 1897, and in March the port, with adjacent territory, was leased by China to Germany for ninety-nine jears. The district was declared a pro ot }ho German empire April 27. 1898, and its administration was intrusted to the navy department, with a naval officer as governor. In November. 1897. Russia obtained ^ twenty-five-year lease of Port Arthur and Talienwan. with 800 square miles or territory, and secured a naval base and an ice-free port. In the following f.UPther concessions gave Russia JiltiU i ,con?o1 Manchuria, and a ! !jj i Russian Influence was ex tended into Mongolia. The Russo-Japanese war, however, lim ited Russia s activities there and result ed in Japan's acquisition of Port Arthur, in order to preserve the balance of pow Sr* .^ft Britain. April 2, 1898, leased Wei-Hai-\\ ei on the same terms as those in the Russian lease of Port Arthur !n February. 1808. Great Britain had established its influence, without claiming exclusive privileges. In the Yangtze val ley. These concessions were followed by Similar privileges for France, which, April 18, leased the port of Kwangchau wan. on the southern coast, for nlnetv nine years. June 9 following Great Britain leased for ninety-nine years a 20O-square mlle extension of territory on the main land opposite Hongkong, and about the same time Japan secured non-alienation pledges concerning the province of Fuklen. ? Italy demanded a lease of Sanmum bay. but did not press it because of popu lar opposition as expressed at home to ? policy of expansion. The Open Door. All these territorial negotiations led up to the celebrated international "open door" declaration. While Kngland had long urged the policy of equality of op portunity for all nations in Chinese trade, the United States accomplished the first broad recognition of that principle. As a result of negotiations by John Hay. the American Secretary of State, Great Britain, Germany. France, Italy, Russia and Japan, early In 1900, ac quiesced In --guaranteeing the treaty rights of . the United States and thus, through the most favored nation clause, the treaty rights of other nations in China should remain unimpaired in the territory, except military or naval sta tions, acquired or leased by each power, and that goods of the treaty powers should continue to be admitted there on equal terms with those of the nation newly In possession. Great Britain and Germany supple mented this In October 16, 1900, by a definite agreement between them to up hold the policy of an open door in China, to abstain from seizure of terri tory themselves and to Influence other governments as far as possible to the same end. The Anglo-Japanese alliance of Feb rary, 1002, for the protection of their respective Interests in China, and Korea, was another factor of great importance. The immediate object of the alliance was generally understood to be to limit Rus sian expansion In Korea and Manchuria, j ELS OF THE ESCAPE OF GERMAN CRUISERS Correspondent Describes Passing: of Goeben and Breslau Into the Dardanelles. LONDON, August 17, 2 a.m.?The Dally Telegraph's Malta correspondent telegraphs the folowing story of the es cape of the German cruisers Goeben and Breslau Into the Dardanelles: "When the Goeben and Breslau were hugging the Italian shores a French army corps had to be transported from Africa to Prance. British ships, allotted the duty of warding off any interference, were assigned to a position between Italy and the line of transportation. "The German cruisers must have won dered why they were left alone, although the plucky British cruiser Gloucester got a smack at the Breslau, and might have sunk or captured her had not the big Goeben hurried to her rescue. Germans Seek Seclusion. "The operation of the transfer of the French troops being completed, a portion of the British fleet was able to give at tention to the Germans. It was learned that the Goeben and Breslau were at Syra, Greece, whither the British ves sels followed them. The Germans, how ever, had hid themselves among the islands of the Greek archipelago. "The British ships scattered and searched for them. The cruiser Glouces ter and some destroyers got in touch with the Germans, but the Goeben and Breslau, learning that they had been dis covered, made a prudent flight. Believ ing the whole British fleet was at their heels, they avoided capture by entering the Dardanelles. "It is stated that the Goeben refused an opportunity offered her of single combat with one of the big British ships." TRAVELER SAYS BERLIN IS WHOLLY ISOLATED ??? j No Hail Received in Past Fortnight, and News of War Meager. LONDON, August 17 (3:25 a.m.).?The Dally Mall's Copenhagen correspondent sends the following, under date of August 15: "A traveler from Berlin says the city is completely Isolated from the outside world. No mail has arrived in a fort night from England, Russia, France or Belgium. Newspapers, mails and tele graphic Information from Austria ar, received only once a week. The Scandi navian mails arrived last Friday with the latest newspapers, and the greatest surprise was caused by reports of Oer man defeats in Belgium, especially at the Belgian victories at the Liege forts. "Berlin was unusually quiet, the travel er said. No visitors were visible and for eign languages were not heard. Night revels had ceased and dancing halls were closed. The city at night was in dark ness. War Map Removed by Police. "A war map exhibited in a shop on Friedrichstrasse was marked with flags to Indicate German successes, but the po lice instantly ordered its removal. "The Berlin papers, which for a time flrmly insisted that the Liege forts were in German hands, Anally admitted that this was not correct. It was pointed out that several forts were still withstanding the attack, but it was the emperor's wish that no more lives than necessary should be sacrificed, and that the fact that the Belgians still hold the forts would not embarrass the German operations. 'The people,' the traveler said, 'were showing depression and uneasiness.' " ENVOY LEAVES LONDON. | Steamer Placed at Disposal of the Austrian Ambassador. LONDON. August 17.?The Austrian am bassador left London last night for Ply mouth. From Plymouth he will proceed to Genoa on a steamer placed at his dis posal by Great Britain. A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company from Ancona, Italy, reports the arrival of the English consul from Trieste, Austria. The consul states that he had to fly for his life when England declared war against Austria. MONTREAL, August 17.?Hans von Hanneheim, recently Austrian consul gen eral in Canada, left Montreal for New York last night Before his departure he expressed a fear that because of the feel ing in this country against the Austrians many hundreds of them may die of star vation next winter, as they are being turned out of positions and are not per mitted to leave the country.

CENSORSHIP IS DRAWN TIGHTLY AROUND EUROPE i Few Correspondents Allowed at Scene of Conflicts, and Use of Tele- ! graph Denied to Them. LONDON, August 17.?While Japan has borrowed most of her military science from Europe she taught the west, in return, the enormous value of secrecy in warfare. All the powers en gaged in the European death grapple ha~* learned that lesson. Reports from Belgium say that the German prisoners have no regimental insignia on their uniforms, and have been, instructed to refuse information as to what regiments they are attached. In 1870 the English newspapers gave lull accounts of the German and French regiments, where they were and what regiments composed each army. The commands and personalities of all the leading generals were widely known. Over all these details the armies en gaged in the war tneater in western Europe, except perhaps the Belgian, have folded a shroud of mystery con cerning the men who will play the greatest parts in the drama. The public knows almost nothing about the com mander-in-chief of the French army, Gen. Joseph J. C. Joffre. Joffre is not an advertising general. Even the French people know less about him than almost any man who ever guided their military march. Position of Troops Guesswork. The present dispositions of the com batant forces, their movements and plans are chiefly matters of guesswork. Ex perts can only surmise that during the oppressive darkness of the past fortnight of mobilization and of suspense for Eu rope the four great armies of Germany, France, Austria and Russia which have been moving into positions which those who have theorized on the subject have expected. The great mobilization appears to have proved one fact?that even the German organization, when put to the test under real war conditions, could not move as fast as expected. The great swift battle on the French frontier which was doe last week has not ret begun bo far as known, or perhaps It mar be begin ning today. Not even the Japanese were able to cover their movements With auch a cloud of secrecy as the millions of men now marching on the greatest scale the world has ever known. Censorship Is Successful. The censorship which has been drawn around Europe, except for a few outly ing neutral countries. Is chiefly responsi I ble for the success of this up-to-date mlll itary secrecy. No telegram, private or for the newspapers, goes out of any bellig erent country without passing under the I eye and the pencil of a keen censor. Ger I many and Austria have almost sealed the other usual means of communication. The British newspapers discuss the "war more freely than the continental papers, but under the Imperative request of the .war office they say nothing of the move [ ments of troops or ships. The German newspapers, according to reports, print only official news. The British army permits a few war correspondents to take the field, but under strict rules. The French staff prohibits correspondents at the front from using the telegaphs. The Russian army will have no correspondents. The German staff is known strongly to disapprove of them. BATTLEFIELD OF DIEST TURNED INTO GRAVEYARD Village of Haelen Almost Wrecked by Bullets and Shells During1 the Fighting. LONDON, August 17 (5:30 flum.).?A trip over the battlefield of Dlest, Bel gium, la described by the Brussels cor respondent of the Daily News.- He says: "I remember best a brown stretch of harrowed grround, half a furlong in length, which is the grave of 1,200 Germans, who fell in the fighting of Wednesday. All over the field are other graves, some of Germans, some of Bel gians and some of horses. "When I reached the place peasants with long spades were still engaged in the work of burial. The battleground is about three miles long, with the village of Haelen at one end. The vil lage is harshly scarred. Its houses are pierced with bullet holes. Hardly a pane of glass remains. The church spire is tumbled over and the town clock wrenched from the place. "As I passed across the batlefield a German biplane swept by like a car rion crow seeking other victims. Later in the day I visited the Bruges prison, where 400 Germans are held. I never before saw men sleep as these men did. They lay like logs after seven days and nights of almost constant duty on the field of battle. "These prisoners are no cowards. They surrendered only when no other course was possible. They were vic tims of the German military system, which drills men out of all inde pendence." W. W. HOEKE, Son of the late ?% rtA^ Qi W. H.

BECOMES A PROBLEM Already Belgium Is Caring for More Than 5,000 Germans Taken in Battle. LONDON, August 17, 7:50 a.m.?A troublesome problem of the war is like ly to be the housing and guarding of prisoners. Already more than 5,000 Germans have been captured before the battles have really begun. The Bel gians are sending a large proportion of tfheir prisoners to France. When the big fighting with at least 2,000,000 commences the number of prisoners probably will run into vast and embarass ing totals on both sides. There will be exchanges of prisoners, but these are not always easy to arrange. Another difficulty is anticipated in the matter of the commissariat for unprecedently large armies. The Ger mans are even now confronted with this gigantic task. The Brussels correspondent of the Reuter Telegram Company says that today's official communication of the Belgian war office is largely devoted to anecdotes and unimportant incidents. This is done, evidently, to satisfy the public demand for news without be traying any information regarding the movements of troops. Capture Prisoners With Bread. "For example," un the correspond ent, "a story la going: the rounds here of a soldier who has taken several German prisoners. Be Is quoted in the war office statement as sarins: 'I don't take a rifle with me now. I go out with a stick ot bread and butter and they follow me into camp.' "One of the prisoners told a Belgian officer. It Is said, that the German soldiers were told that they must g, on or be shot. He added: They for got that we needed sleep occasionally-' "Two Belgian aviators were com pelled to land between the opposing armies, owing to engine trouble. Be fore repairs had been effected a party of Uhlans came up and the aviators took to their heels, regaining the Bel gian lines. Recapture Aeroplane. "Two days later It was ascertained that their aeroplane was still at the same place, guarded by the Uhlans. Thereupon, it Is declared, the airmen mounted a rapid Ore gun in an automo bile and, making a sudden attack upon the Germans, rescued the airship and escaped unharmed." The Chronicle today publishes a dls- ! patch from Amsterdam, which says it is reported that the Austrian troops In Belgium are under the command of Count von Buelow, commander of the German 2d Army Corps. G. Marconi has had the order of the Honorary Grand Cross of the Victorian Order conferred upon him. POSSE USES DYNAMHE, FIVE BANDITS KILLED !
