publication of a series of articles on Germany and Great Britain written by a man who is a close student of history a keen observer of current evented and a writer of unusual force His first article he calls The Menace and in lt i he says I write these articles because I believe that Germany 4s eliberatelyj preparing to destroy the British empire and because I know that we are not able or ready to defend ourselves against a sudden and formidable attack I write from a sense of duty and from a conviction that the destruction of the British empire wpuld be anihlsi fortune for Europe and a blow to civilization throughout the world I take this course against my own Interests and against the feeling of most of my political and many of my private friends i I write In the Dally Mall in the hope of arousing the public from the Jatal apathy and complacent optimism which blind them to the greatest peril the nation has ever been called upon to face At the present moment the whole country is In a ferment about the budget and the peers and the electionelection It seems sheer criminal lunacy to waste time and strength in chasing such political bubbles when the existence of the empire is threatened by so brave and powerful and Indefatigable a nation as Germany The public do not realize the gravity of the German menace Lord Roseberys Warning The press of the world cannot ignore the

this knowledge rests on no bias either toward Germany or toward England No one is daring enough to hope that 1910 will se any pause in the appalling expenditure in the preparation for war writes Mr Stead who continues If John Bull is not definitely to give up his historic position as lord of the seas he will have to find an additional 30000C00 for warships in 1910 The naval vote in 19C9 was 170 000 000 In 1910 It will be ever 2O0a0O0 unless England has thrown up sponge and admits she is knocked out Germany which has nearly doubled its naval expenditure since the last Hague peace conference will spend this year nominally 110000000 but in reality 160000000 because expenditure put down to the navy in England amounting to 50000000 is distributed under other votes in Germany Eng land even if she spends 5200000000 will be sore put to maintain the two power standard when Germany is spending 5160000000 To keep up her two keels to one program will require a naval vote not of 200000000 but of 300000000 in the face of these figures it is ridiculous to deny the existence of browing trouble As Seen at Berlin ESTRADA SEEKSPEACE a slight measure pf success TThe other pf the eastern

Other Things Including a Definition of iStandfPaK ADVANCE OF AEMY CONTINUES Here is a German expression which was flashed over the cables from Berlin to the New York World before the first day of the new year had passed Britain is compelled to accept the position of the worlds clearing house This is Englands principal cause for disgust Then the fleet question which England has decided to dreadnough tize She thought Germany would not follow owing to the cost but In that she was mistaken We can assert without exaggeration that in speed armor plating artillery our navy is at least equal to Englands It is true the British fleet is more numerous but capable English admirals believe the next naval war will be determined by dreadnoughts alone and that the smaller ships will not fire a shot so some Britishers say tight immediately before Germany has more time her trade Interests are ever seeking new fields and already In the near East and the Far Eeast her influence is being firmly planted Germany must have colonies and Great Britain has gone far ahead of her in acquiring the great colonial possessions in the world The demand for trade the craving for power glory and riches have occasioned some of the most cruel wars lii history and theday unhappiiy is not past when the same motives mtLvhispire new wars norman tlL 3 5 TVrNM nas naa reasons enough to distrust Ene-land of late and It Would be grossly unfair to give the impression that the belligerent attitude of these two nations springs wholly from Germans menacing activity The recent diplomacy of Eng land has been obviously before the world aimed to isolate Germany to block all possibility of her colonial expanison and to weave about here a close net of alliances which will place her at a disadvan tage in time of conflict The entente with Russia in 1906 was doubtless brought about to shut Germany out of Persia and the parts of Central Asia where gerrnan influence was beginning to be felt The understandings between Great Britain and Japan and France are more recent bui both are aimed against the forward movements of Germany The day may come when Germany will be in a position to declare the absolute necessity for her fighting in order to maintain the standards of her trade and her prestige We are jln bitter need of a strong German navy said the kaiser on a certain historic occasion If the

loveV swindle Any one who continues to join in the driveling hypocrisy is a sinner abainst the duty of notional self respect The vast expenditures entailed by the present policies of Great Britain ancL Germany will bring disaster to bothJ nations A compromise must be effected immediately between these nations which will permit a lessening of the present ruinous policies of nayy increase and which will give Germany oportunltles for trade expansion greater than she now has and adequate to her needs or war may be percipltated at anymo ment Well meant phrases do not help maintains the Berlin editor Ojily an unsentimental business treaty can release us Germans and Britons from a situation wherein a single stupidity of a consular official at a aistanceora single outburst of popular feeling

Responsibility Lies The burden of responsibility is placed upon England by the German wrlter who pleading for peace urging England to agree to a compromise treaty says We must say to England Every

the sllenco of the United States concerning the situation here Further bloodshed is very remote Both Estrada and Madriz desire peace with honor The resignation if President Madriz In favor Gen Estrada

left here sev eral days ago for Bluefields to consult with Gen Estrada Mr Sussnian carried with him letters from a number of persons of high Authority in Washington who gave assurance that the Estrada government will be recognized by the United States if the revpmtlonaryarmy marched on the1 capital and captured it Only one condition is attached that the Estrada government as soon as it is in control give the Nicaraguan people a fair election at which they may choose a successor to Zelaya as president Consul Sussman has therefore advised Estrada to press on to Managua at once Sussman went
