Germany's ne':t move in the military field-hc,~nm' stroke either in the east or the west is expected bcfore tihe al lies attempt their spring advance-is at present the chief subject of specu lation and con h:,:'ture. According to reports reaching; London from Petro grad, the German emperor is now at Beriin holding a war council with ,Fi"ld Mror hal vo:i der Gol z, the Ger man military comnmnander of Constan tinople, and other leaders, and is plan ning a newV campain to offset the fail of Przemiysl and meet tile situation in the Dard:nelles.

The British cabinet met Tuesday and there is every reason to believe that it considerel the liquor question and the sramping out of the o-:l, which is now one of the greatest pr ' loms of the nation. Fast and powerful submarines of tne German ravy have torpedoed two more Bmitish steamers in the waters adjacent to the British Isles. Both steamers, the Falaba and Aguila, took to flight at the sight of the subma rines, but were speedily overh'-led, with the result that both vessels were sent to the bottom, with a loss of life estimated at between 140 and 150. Only a few minutes were allowed the i.rar ngers and crew to put off in the bo: -s, and, according to the sur vivors, the Germans turned their guns on the capturen ships, and thereby added to the loss of life by shell fire. Sin'e the French merchantman Ad miral t.anteaume, with 2,600 refugees from Belgian and French coast towns aboard, was torpedoed-Oct. 26-the Falaba, which was in the West Afri can service, is the only steamer carry: ! ing any great number of passengers that has .been sunk by a German sub marine. The Falaba had aboard, ac coaling to the latest official list pub lished by the Elder-Dempster Steam ship Company, 151 passengers,. of whom 86 were saved. Four passen gers are reported to have been killed and sixty-one are missing. Forty-three of the crew also are missing and four were killed. Of the Aguila, the three lone pas sengers and twenty-three of the crew were lost. A measure of vast importance is forecast by the conference which Brit ish ship owners have had with David Lloyd-George, chancellor of the ex chequer. The shipbuilding employers unanimously urged the total prohibi tion of the sale of intoxicating liquors during the period of the war.
