IMPORTANCE OF ARTILLERY
French Front (Correspondence of
the Associated Press) The Entente
armies have not been alone in recog recognizing
nizing recognizing the greater value of artillery
as 'compared with infantry in the
method of warfare in operation on all
the European fronts since the cessa cessation
tion cessation of the war movement at the end
of. 1914..
A glance at the strength of the
German field artillery branch at the
opening of hostilities shows that it
then consisted of 642 batteries. At
present it is composed of 2000 batter batteries
ies batteries at least. As the batteries now
contain only four pieces instead of
six as at the beginning of the war,
the calculation of the power of the
artilfery in the field must be based on
the number of guns rather than that
of batteries. Whereas in 1914 the
German army possessed only 3,852
field guns, it now disposes 8000 if
the minmum figure of 2000 batteries
with which it was furnished at the
end of 1916 is taken as the basis of
calculation. i
These field artillery batteries are j
divided into two kinds those armed
with the 77-centimetre cannon (the 3-
inch) and those armed with light 4 4-inch
inch 4-inch field howitzers. The German 3 3-inch
inch 3-inch cannon has been much improved
and its range greatly increased since
1914.
As to the German heavy artillery,
the increase in the number of pieces
has been even greater in proportion
than that of the field artillery. In
peace-time the Geraaa-Tempire had
organized twentyfour regiments of
ytiiier. Each regiment was
composed" two battalions of four
batteries, and each battery was arm armed
ed armed with four guns, thus totalling 768
' heavy guns.
As soon" as the army had been mob mobilized

WATERWAYS NEEDED IN WAR
(Associated Press)
Miami, Fla., Nov. 30. The import importance
ance importance and desirability of deepening the
Hudson river to permit deep-sea craft
to ply between New York and Al Albany,
bany, Albany, a distance "of 150 miles, was
emphasied by Governor Charles S.
Whitman of New York, in an address
before the Atlantic Deeper Water Waterways
ways Waterways Association convention here
yesterday.
Governor Whitman said that the
amount of foreign commerce which
annually passed through Albany by
rail on its way to and from western
points, exceeded fourteen million tons,
and that upon the completion of the
new barge canal combined rail and
water facilities would more than dou double
ble double this tonnage.
"If some of this foreign commerce
could be intercepted and transferred
before reaching the" port of New
York," he said, "it would permit that
port to handle more cheaply and rap rapidly
idly rapidly the domestic commerce necessary
to feed ,clothe and shelter its rapidly
increasing population."
Reports made by federal engineers,
he said, that the construction of a
New York-Albany ship canal was en
tirely feasible and that the cost would
be comparatively small. The Hudson
can be navigated by ocean going ves vessels
sels vessels to within 40 miles of Albany, and
virtually all of the dredging neces necessary
sary necessary to secure a depth of 27 feet
could be done with hydraulic dredges,
except in a few places where shale
rocr is found. Ice blocks the river
for only a brief period each year, and
it would be possible to keep a channel
open throughout the year if the de
mands of commerce warranted.
Governor Whitman reviewed th
history of canal construction and de development

canals, he said, have floated 323,000, 323,000,-000

said.

A men were with him when he died.
He was given more than the ordi- j
nary care afforded by the hospital
staff; was given the privileges of a;
w(ard of two patients only, such a&
are sometimes used for patients who
are considered too seriously ill for
ordinary treatment, or who have their j
relatives in constant attendance upon j
them, and are therefore accorded the
greater prjvacy of a special ward to
themselves, until removed to the
pneumonia ward. It is an unques unquestioned
tioned unquestioned fact that Leitner did receive
more than his share of a busy doctor's
time and attention, and while few
hospitals are all that could be desired,
one thing is absolutejy sure, and that
is, that the doctor took more than an
ordinary interest in his case.
As I have said, it is no personal
matter of mine, for Lord knows I
have never been accused of neglect neglecting
ing neglecting the health and welfare of my men,
but I do think it to be one of the
greatest injustices to the doctor, and
to the nurse, who gave him the best
they had both of their care and time.
The nurse, as far as investigation
shows, did her duty unremittingly up
to the time his sister came to be with
him herself, and to care for him, and
the doctor to the end.
Yours as ever, Drake.
Captain Drake has somewhat mis misunderstood
understood misunderstood the Star. No one has
blamed him or any other officer or
member of Company A for Sergeant
Leitner's sufferings. All the blame
has been laid on the hospital and its
management.
We have seen several of the mem members
bers members of Company A, home on fur furlough,
lough, furlough, and have received letters from
several others, and not one of them
has complained of the company's
quarters and treatment, the regiment
or the camp. Almost all, in fact, have
spoken to the contrary. But as for
the hospital well, the report of Sur Surgeon
geon Surgeon General Gorgas was enough,
without the great mass of other testi testimony
mony testimony against it.
'We can very well understand that
Sergeant Leitner's sister, in her grief
at her brother's condition, and con confusion
fusion confusion at being in a strange place
while in such trouble, may have blam blamed
ed blamed some people who were not to
blame. We have already stated that
Sergeant Leitner was in another reg regiment
iment regiment when he was taken sick, and
we have other information than that
of Captain Drake that the compan
did all it could for him while he was
sick. We hardly needed to be told
that it was something to be taken
for granted. It is unanimously ad admitted
mitted admitted here that Captain Drake and
his lieutenants take a personal inter interest
est interest in the welfare of their men, and
we think the same can be said of the
officers of the entire regiment. But
when a man is taken sick and has to
go to the hospital, his recovery de depends
pends depends on the hospital and not on his
company or regiment, the members
of which can do very little to help
him.
The Star doesn't believe in publish publishing
ing publishing sensational reports. Such reports
add both to the burden of the con conscientious
scientious conscientious men who are trying to car carry
ry carry on the war and to the anxiety of
the people at home. We have done all
we could since the war began to re reassure
assure reassure and cheer the people and up uphold
hold uphold the hands of the government.
However, there is one thing that must
be understood. A paper that remains
silent, or tries to gloss over every everything,
thing, everything, soon loses the confidence of the
people, and they won't believe it when
it is telling the plainest truth.
Captain Drake and all the other of officers
ficers officers and soldiers in the army are
duty bound not to complain. To grin
and bear it is a point of -honor with
them. This is magnificent, but it
should be backed up by a live civilian
conscience, and the conscience of the
civilians is always only too ready to
go to sleep, and it will go to sleep if
the press doesn't give it an occas occasional
ional occasional kick. And it must, be remem remembered
bered remembered that the work of the army and

the navy can't be done unless this
civilian conscience remains awake.
We have reason to believe that the
troubles at Camp Wheeler are about
over. The men have received their
winter clothing, and it is far more
comfortable than that the average
civilian, even if well-to-do, wears.
The dispatches indicate that both the
hospital and the camp are receiving
the supplies they have lacked. We
are afraid that until the results of
the unavoidable epidemic of measles
has worked out there will be more
sickness and death from pneumonia,
but we ar'e of the opinion that there
will not be any more of the suffering
that was caused in the first weeks by
the lack of adequate force and proper
equipment.
The future of the Ocklawaha Val Valley
ley Valley railroad is a problem. The rail rail-road
road rail-road commission and the courts havo
no authority to make the trainmen
work for nothing; neither have they
any money or authority to pay the
men. The men who own the road are
in another state and outside the au authority
thority authority of our commission and our
courts. There is a report going the
rounds that the East Coast railway
will buy the road, and another that it
will be bought by the Georgia South Southern

it is to be devoted to the news of

we have not agreed with it in every everything,

The sum of money that I owe.

BRITISH GRAND FLEET

IS ALWAYS BUSY
Base of the British Grand Fleet.
( Correspondence f of the Associated
Press). The head of the British ad admiralty,
miralty, admiralty, speaking the other day in
the house of commons, flung out a
challenge to the Germany navy. He
said, "I disclose no secret, or if it is
a secret I disclose a fact which I
would be glad to tell the enemy,
when I say that the British grand
fleet in its northern base lies behind
no shore defenses, but relies on its
own strength alone."
There are people in the United
States who do not appreciate the .ac .activities
tivities .activities of the British navy in its
home waters, who think that it lies
in idleness, like the German high seas
fleet, behind impenetrable landlocked
bases. For the purpose of removing
this impression, the Associated Press
representative was asked to visit the
grand fleet, live on board the first first-line
line first-line battleships, and observe just
what sort of a day's work it puts in
day after day and week after week.
Ceaseless activity is the motto of
the grand fleet. Neither men nor
ships are permitted to gather rust or
barnacles. From its base at the
northern tip of the British Isles, it
sweeps day and night the 140,000
square miles of the North Sea, on
ceaseless vigil, in unflagging hope
that one day its watching will be re rewarded
warded rewarded by a meeting with the enemy
under circumstances wherein he can
not avoid battle. Moreover, this
sweeping of the North Sea is no mere
aimless patrol. In the most castfal
moves of ships and men there is al
ways a directing mind and a directing
plan. The North Sea is as well swept
in relation to its size as the drawing
room of a well-ordered house. The en enemy's,
emy's, enemy's, coastline is still the British
navy's frontier.
The harbor which has been the
home of the grand fleet for three
years is probably the finest of its
kind in the world.' The whole area
comprised in this British northern
base is about equal to the hundred hundred-odd
odd hundred-odd square miles which the Germans
evacuated in France last spring. The
battleship squadrons, for example,
have room within their own particu particular
lar particular section of this great base, for
every kind of practice maneouvres,
including target practice.
On a sunny afternoon the corres correspondent
pondent correspondent saw eight battleships at tur turret
ret turret or target practice, a detachment
of cruisers manoeuvres, a seaplane seaplane-balloon
balloon seaplane-balloon ship at work under conditions
simulating those of actual warfare,
and off and around the edges, var various
ious various operations by innumerable small
craft and auxiliaries.
Night target practice, which also
is conducted within the harbor, is al always
ways always an interesting ,sightl The bat battleships
tleships battleships steam down the nine-mile
course. Suddenly a searchlight picks
up a target. Instantly every turret
is trained, every gun directed. Then
a button is pressed somewhere, and
the guns speak as with one voice in a
gigantic broadside that awakens the
echoes from the hills.
There is an infinite variety to the
turret practice on a big battleship.
The officer in charge of the turret
speaks: "An enemy shell has come in
through the turret, killing men num numbers
bers numbers 1, 3, 4 and 6. Right gun disabled.
Connection with rest of ship lost.
Carry on." The "dead men" file off to
one side and watch their comrades
work as they would in actual battle.
There is the zest of a game to it.
The officer speaks again: "Shell has
hit turret, killing all men except num numbers
bers numbers 1 and 3. Number 3 is seriously
wounded. Ammounition hoisting ma machinery
chinery machinery disabled. Fire started in pile
of waste behind gun. Carry on!-' The

SOUVENIR SEEKERS

(Associated Press)
Behind the Lines in France. In
every battalion at the front there are
a number of confirmed souvenir hunt hunters,
ers, hunters, and sometimes their influence is
so potent that an epidemic craze for
collecting spreads through all ranks.
The available war souvenirs are
seldom of much value, but there is a
considerable variety of things to
chose from in. most battle areas. In
the early days of the war, the Ger German
man German helmets were valued souvenirs,
for the old-style German helmet was
substantial and picturesque, brilliant
with heavy metal garniture. There
were also unusual variations, like the
quaint Bavarian shakos, while one or
two cavalry regiments provided a
rare variety of headgear which has
not seen seen on the western front
since the first year of war.
The German helmet of today has
depreciated even more than the Ger German
man German mark. It is no longer even
leather, but a kind of paper-felt. The
metal spike has given place to one of
wood or composition. The solid brass
regimental badge is now a thin tinsel
plaque. The true collector cares little
for the modern helmet and has no in interest
terest interest at all in the little round con convict
vict convict cap which so many German pris prisoners
oners prisoners wear. If the German only knew
it, a sure passport to warm and in
stant favor on surrender is a decent
helmet. It attracts immediate atten
tion and the fortunate owner is giv given
en given cigarettes and other marks of
favor by his delighted captor, instead
of being merely herded to the rear
without ceremony.
