STRGEITHANEVER | I M GERMAN EXPERTS ADMISSION. DOMINATION OF BRITISH NAVY. I (Press As-v>at:on War Sen ice.) LKDAM, Wednesday. I;i a. review of the naval situation in the Berliner Tageblatt," Captain Peishis says — During the past year the significance of sea power was almost entirely eliminated in the  In re-- I itv, eyea of t.h? superficial observer. In rcaJity, hUWe\êr, th?. a,'et.s, though behind the scenes, played many a significant role. In the IN ortli !<ea, without abandoning its strategy of aloofness, British Fleet exercised Domination over the commercial routes, not oniy of Germany, bUL d Holland and th Scandinavian States, and the pressure of this domination made 'fself fdt on cur economic liiand on the pos:-ibiEty of ob{..a.;?m; fc??dstuS? a,nd raw mat-en.J from neutral countries. Our Fleet played a simi- l1r role with regard to Russia by its domi- nt!0n of th-e B??ii'. Referring to submarines, Captain Persiu3 says:— Their acrh .i.ly duri. ng pe rt of the year was followed with great interest. In the North j a and in British water-■ German U beats, especially in the first half of the year, jeopardised the enemy, pa-rcfieulariy British commercial shipping. In the Mediter- ranean during the last few months the com- meree of the Allies has been considerably affected by German and Austrian U boats, and in the Baltic British suluiarines were able to boast of some SUCCf.

He rays: must, however, into consideration the freth supply of shins as the result of sedulous British industry in the docks, a.s well as of purchase of neutral and seizure of en.emy merchant vessels. It is well not to estimate too hiphiy the losses of our enemies hitherto in merchant shroping. Captain Persms then refers to lists of war -.es:e1 s- and continues:-— In this respect also '1, "lemy has been able to fill up gaps raprHy. One must", therefore, clearly understand that cur enemies to-day are considerably stronger at sea than they weire at the outbreak of war.
