German Agents Active. It has been officially turito-asced that the bead of the British war office was on his way to the theater ef operations in the near east. Coupled with report ed rumors of activities of German agents fomenting discontent among the native population of India, have come reports of disaffection in Egypt, also ascribed to the same sources.

K!tchrnerM Experience Help. Karl Kitchener's selection for the task of holding Britain's oriental em pire intact is viewed generally as hav ing been caused- by his long service in India and Egypt, his intimate knowl edge of the native temperament and his large personal following among the leaders of the natives. Earlier In the war the disaffection In India and Egypt was evidently of such threatenin-r proportions that the use of Japanese troops was being suggested to take the place of native forces which had been withdrawn for the European fields. May Ask Japan's Aid. It was announced at that time that no Japanese troops would be used out side the theater of Japanese-German hostilities at Kiao Chow, but since then a new situation has arisen in the Bal kans and Japan has announced her ad-4 nouncea ner aanerence 10 tne agree ment of all the entente allies not to conclude a separate peace.

Nov 9 Denouncing the censorship and the conduct of the war generally, a number of peers of the realm delivered addresses Monday in the house of lords. Earl Loreburn, former high chancellor, was one of the principal critics. Earl Loreburn spoke of what he termed "The misadventures" of the Antwerp expedition, the loss of rear admiral Sir Christopher Craddoek's squadron the Dardanelles operations and the Balkan expedition. The speak er said he had been told two months ago that 1S.V00.900 men had been killed or disabled for life and that multitudes had been added to this number since, and that if the conflict continued in definitely, revolution or anarch" might follow in Europe. vnrr Criticises Censorship. Earl Lorebur. who was one of the radical stalwarts who criticised the South African war. oddly enough found himself supported by viscount Mllner. former high commissioner for South Africa, who was one of those largely responsible for the South African war. Viscount Milner. however, largely con fined himself to a criticism of the cen sorship. He declared that the news had been "doctored in an optimistic sense" and also denounced the government for not going sooner to the assistance of Servia. Baron Courtney of Penwith, well known as a peace advocate, followed viscount Milner. He said the govern ment should show itself ready to ac cept any suggestions which would end the war, concluding, however, that the Germans must agree to evacuate Bel gium and France, and that no indem nity should be demanded of Great Britain.
