RUSSIA'S BALTIC FLEET IS USELESS LONDON. The question of the part which the Russian Baltic squadron is likely to play in the coming stages of the war has become one of much in terest. .A.ppen lit noes point to its being rev dered completely inactive on account of the enormous distance which sepa rates it from the scene of action. It seems impossible that any way can be found to overcome the coaling dif ficulty in order to allow it to proceed to the far east hy way of the Medit erranean and the Hues canal. The only way remaining is, then, the Arc tic route in other words, the north east passage. Russian officials have persistently circulated reports to the effect that this journey can be achieved by the squadron.

The northeast passage has only nine been achieved- by Nordens kjold, in a specially cons...
