AMERICA'S POLICY. "COWARDLY AND CRAVEN." THE POWERS AND MEXICO. WASHINGTON, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 March 1914
AM BBICA'8 POLICY. "COWARDLY AND CRAVEN." THE POWERS AND MEXICO. WASHINGTON, Wednesday. The Administration came in for an other severe handling in the Senate to day, when Senator Wesley Jones (Re publican), of Washington State, took up the debate on the vexed question of the Panama Canal tolls. The Senator declared that President Wilson was determined to secure the :epeal of the clause exempting- Ameri .an vessels from payment of the tolls, because he had recently conferred with Sir Lionel Carden, British Minister to Mexico, and an Anglo-American agree ment was reached by which Great Bri tain would assist the United States to maintain the Monroe doctrine, which the Mexican situation had threatened to upset. - The disappearance of the tolls exemp tion provisions, from the Panama Canal Act was the price to be paid by the United States for non-interference by other nations in the affairs of Mexico. Senator Jones considered that such a foreign policy as this was cowardly and craven to t...

Balfour, ex-leader- of the Opposition, who had been hurriedly summoned from Cannes, autered,.he was loudly cheered by the Opposition. Mr Bonar Law said that in view of Mr Churchill's speech at Bradfoid, the situation was now more dangerous than aver. If Mr Asquith would promise :o submit his suggestions to a referen dum of the people, Lord Lonsdale, lead er of the Opposition in the Lords, would raise no objection. If there was to be disorder in Ireland, the' army would obey its leaders, but if it was to be civil war then the army would have the same rights as' other citizens. Mr Asq...
SIZE OF CAPITAL VESSELS. HAS MAXIMUM BEEN REACHED? "BATTLE OF EGGSHELLS." LONDON, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 March 1914
SIZE O' CAPITAL VESSELS. HAS MAXIMUM BEEN REACHED ? "BATTLE OF EGGSHELLS." LONDON, Wednesday. A thought arresting passage in the speech delivered by Mr Winston Churchill during the debate on the na val estimates in the House of Commons yesferday is being discussed by the newspapers and by naval experts. Mr Churchill declared that the true picture of a battle between modern bat tleships was not a light between men in armor striking at each other with heavy swords, but a battle of two egg se.clls striking at each other with ham !mers. Mr Churchill added that this fact must euggest doubts as to whe ther enormous ships of war are not ap proaching their culminating phase. Experts commenting on these obser vations of the First Lord, point out that submarines have almost the range of battleships, while torpedos travel for seven miles at a speed of 29 knots, but, nevertheless, they are doubtful whether it would be safe to reduce the size of the capital ships. u? , l-- .J?
