XCbe tribune Saturday, August !5. 1914 The Governor has protested to the Secretary of State against the stoppage of Press news. — :o:— THE EXODUS TO FLORIDA. For July 1914. Immigrants Emigrants. Males 291 129 Females 152 85 443 214 Immigrants in excess 229 All reports seem to indicate that Germany is making no progress towards the French frontier. Every day that finds her still held in chedk in Belgium tells against her chances. Even if the news of German defeats contains great exaggerations, the modccnm of truth that lies behind that news is quite enough to give us comfort, and even confidence. The Germans are not advancing into France, and every day that finds them outside France finds them nearer to the time when they will have to defend themselves against a prepared, a numerous, and an aggressive foe. We do not thinkthe Germans will fight with much heart as a whole, but we do believe her opponents will go at her with a will, so as to get rid of the German menace for at least a generation. We do not see how Italy can join Austria and Germany. Her people would repudiate such an idea and it would by no means be to her advantage to help the land grab!) ng Aus trians to get more territory on the Adriatic Sea At the same time she, with her long coast line would suffer horribly from n blockade of her ports by British and French warships. At •'i tim" like this, also, she is likely to remember that she owes much to thespmpathv of England and the practical help of the French at Sol fieri no when she was struggling for independence and national unity We cannot biit think thai given an early decisive success achieved by the enemies of Germany, the w.ir will soon end. A few pitched battles would suf Bee for that. Tli.' Germans are not likely to indulge in guerilla I warfare.

War Notes
CONTROL Or THE
NORTH SEA
The control of the N01 lit Sp;i is of
paramount importance alike loEng-
land as to Germany in the event of
actual conflict, England long ago
assigned to the British fleet the
task of securing command of the
North sp,i in the event of war. It
was fin this reason that British
w;ir ships havp hpen drawn in from
distant part* of the world, until to
day only A stray cruiser 01 sn is
found in foreign ports, The whole
strength of the British navy has
hepu concentrated for North Sea
operations, and when the English
fleet siiled under sealed orders on
war theatening il was Generally
coi ceded that the fleet had made
a rendezvous in the North Sea
The old English policy of making
the enemy's coast the first line of
defence is held to he hazardous in
the case of the Gentian North Sea
shore line I" this war the Eng
lish long Hg blockade -one that would effectu-
ally seal up 1 he North Sea while
laying her blockading vessels less
liable to attack from torpedo boat
and submniint.
This off-shore blockade, as gen-
erally understood, comprises a line
from the north of Scotland to the
Norwegian coast This is the
north line. The southern or west-
ern entrance to the North Sea is
stopped at the entrance to the
Straits of Dover.
The east coast of England forms
the base of operations of Hie Bri-
tish fleet against the German coast
It comprises the whole of the west-
ern border of the North Sea from
Dover to Duncansby Head, a dis-
tance of about five hundred miles,
prolonged some sixty miles to the
Orkney Islands on the noth.
The mouth of the Thames with
the first class port of Chatham and
Sbeerne"s and the advance torpedo
boat and submarine bases at Dover
and Harwich have command of
the North Sea routes from and to
the Straits of Dover. The German
North Sea base lies a little to the
nor'.hward of Dover, and for this
reason has led to the construction
by the British of a second base,
first class in character, more to the
northwaid. This new base is at
Rosyth situated on the Firth of
Forth about three hundred and
fifty miles north of Dover.
Prom Rosyth the dstance to
Heligoland, Diver and to the
Skagerak are almost equi-distant
This central position, however, is
not regarded as favorable for a
German blockade, since it wi ld
mean a four hundred mile run from
a close in blockading line to
Rosyth Compare this with the
ninety mile run only fromvthe
American blockading line at Ha
vaM to Key West.
Arsons naval experts it is held
(hat a run from a blockading line
to a base should not exceed 150
to 200 miles Because of the dis-
tance from Rosyth additional bases
had to be formed further noith
among the islands.
The North Sea is essentially the
threshold to Northern and Central
Europe, Possession or command of
the North Sea means dominance
of much >f the commerce of Cen-
tral Europe. Because of its enormous
importance commercially the North
Sea may be regarded as the key
to the situation. To keep this
sea open arid free is of vital ne-
cessity to the country lying
economically behind it.
Because of the danger of an in.
shore blockade, assuming always
that the German fleet is not in
possession of the sea, has arisen
the idea of the extended blockade.
This extended blockade assumes
a blockading line from the Scapa
Flow. The Orkneys are the base.
They are situated at the western
end of the passage.
IMPORTANCE OF
FIRTH OF FORTH
The Firth of Forth gains fresh
importance when this northern
blockading line isundertaken.since
it becomes more central and be
cause of its central location Eng-
lish leaders have seriously consid-
ered, it is understood, a project for
connecting the Firth of Forth with
the Clyde, thereby giving a fleet
quick access to the Irish Sea. The
Firth of Forth is only two hundred
miles south of Scapa Flow.
If the British are considering an
offshore blockade from the Orkneys
to Norway, it will mean a miser-
able stretch of weather for many
a cruiser crew. During the summer
months it is daylight from sixteen
to eighteen hours, and during the
winter months daylight is limited
to from six to eight hours. In the
northern limits of the North Sea
the midnight sun is in evidence.
Fogs are most prevalent in the
period from late autumn to Janu-
ary. Fog or hazy weather is pre
valent about one dav out of three
during this period. The sole excep-
tion is in the extreme northern
part where on the other hand the
summer months ate hazy. As might
be expected, the winds are strong-
est in winter time. The direction
is from southwest to northwest al-
most wholly. The strongest winds
come from the southwest, and the
southwest winds constitute about
thirty per cent of all the wind that
blows.The southwest winds surpass
in velocity by thirty to fifty percent
the average winds from the north-
east and south. One-third of the
month fog, half of the month fresh
southwest winds, with much rain
an I snow, that is North Sea weath-
er in the winter, ard it is the
weather a British blockading line
may expect in an offshore block-
ad a.

All reports seem to indicate
that Germany is making no pro-
gress towards the French fron-
tier. Every day that finds her
still held in chedk in Belgium
tells against her chances. Even
if the news of German defeats
contains great exaggerations,
the modccnm of truth that lies
behind that news is quite
enough to give us comfort, and
even confidence. The Germans
are not advancing into France,
and every day that finds them
outside France finds them nearer
to the time when they will have
to defend themselves against a
prepared, a numerous, and an
aggressive foe. We do not
think- the Germans will fight
with much heart as a whole, but
we do believe her opponents
will go at her with a will, so
as to get rid of the German
menace for at least a generation.
We do not see how Italy can
join Austria and Germany.
Her people would repudiate
such an idea and it would by no
means be to her advantage to
help the land grab!) ng Aus
trians to get more territory on
the Adriatic Sea At the same
time she, with her long coast
line would suffer horribly from
n blockade of her ports by Bri-
tish and French warships. At
'i tim" like this, also, she is like-
ly to remember that she owes
much to thespmpathv of Eng-
land and the practical help of
the French at Sol fieri no when she
was struggling for independence
and national unity
We cannot biit think thai
given an early decisive success
achieved by the enemies of Ger-
many, the w.ir will soon end. A
few pitched battles would suf
Bee for that. Tli.' Germans are
not likely to indulge in guerilla I
warfare. Their methods of li\
ingand military training would
cause them to soon accept the
inevitable when beaten in the
mass.
