Uon from the otL-r tide of the Cermai
frontier reveals some of the reported
causes of the dismissal of Von Moltke
who appears to have come into col
lislon ltb his sovereign in regard tc
several important questions of strat
ey. Briefly, if information which
reaches rne from Berlin be correct, th
truth is that the Kaiser wished to sub
ordinate strategy, while Von Moltk
preferred to postpone any special
measures against England because
they would have no effect on the situ
ation at this decisive era of the war
The Kaiser's famous order to con
centrate the best part of the Germar
army operating In France In an at
tempt to crush the English was nol
approved by Von Moltke, who consid
ered that stratgetlcal necessities of po
Bition' rendered oth--r plans more ef
fective. The Kaiser more recentl
wished to detach a large number ol
airships and aeroplanes for raids or
English towns, but Von Moltke point
ed out that all available aircraft wert
urgently needed In decisive wai
spheres. Raids against England maj
now be expected.
