GERMAN NAVAL STRENGTH
IN PECULIAR POSITION
Outnumbered 3 to 1 by Allies' Ton
nngc, Must Exorcise Caution.
The peculiar position of Germany on the
sea has been Blveu very serious .'onsld
eution and, indeed, Is generally nilsuu
deistood or misinterpreted. A Bieat deal
of llfjht Is thrown on the subject In an
editorial In the war number of the ricl
entillc Amciican, which has the follow
IliK to a :
No less upon tin' sea Hum upon the
land Is Germany favored by groRniphlcal
conditions. Tlio allied licet:; of Knr.lund
and Franco have a superiority, bastd on
total tonnage, of over three to one over
that or Gernuiiy and A.istila. and a
superiority in the tlrst lighting Hue. of
dicadnoiights or two to one. If to France
Is delegated the tusk of destroying the
Austrian licet In the Adriatic, the Eng
lish lleet III the North Sea has twlco as
many dreadnoughts as that of Germany,
or 31 to Hi; of dcstroyeis she bus ICi to
130; .did of submarines, Ti3 to II. Vndor
these conditions It would be hopeless for
(iermany to accept battlo in tho open.
Ship for ship, the Ihigllsh dreadnoughts
are nunc powerfully armed, and in sea
manship and gunnery they urc at least
the equals of their opponents.
Hem p the Germans have either retired
buhiud the heavy coast fortifications of
their Noitii Sea poits and luubori. or,
uh is more likely, they have taken shelter
lu lht U.iltlo. The British admiral hda
orders to seek and destroy tho German
lleet. Ltut how shall this be dono-.1 Wll
liPlmshuven and the mouth of the Elbe
mo thorough! protected by coast tortl
Ilc.itlons and mines. These consist of
heavy lunrf-rangu guns uud mortars,
who.'i shells would fall with great accu
tacy oer tlie course which would have
tn li.. loveicd by a Meet tli.it Steamed In
to a uingc at which its ill o would be i
effective. The Jap.illitc atlJi'K on tlte
Infeiior Port Arthur defenses provfU the
tutlllty of a usual attack upon sueli for
lillcations ns thote of Wilhelinshaven.
IlclleoUii'l and CUNluiVeii.
Equally disastrous would It be for tho
Cnglish licet to venture tlnough tho nar
row straits which must be passed in
cnteilng the Baltic. These would be
hcull mined, and In their confined
waters the fleet would lose heavily also
from destiojer and submarine attack.
The ideas of the public in regard to the
impotlam questions of sanitation nnd tho
care of the wounded of an army aio de
cidedly vague, and it will interest many
to rend the following extract from an
artlcio on the subject In the Bpecl.il war
number of the Scientific American:
Military sanitation, the Bcrvlce Uovotcd
to keeping the soldier In health, has re
ceived little attention from tho general
public. It Is closely related to the health
problems of civil communities. Military
conditions have afforded opportunities for
striking demonstrations of the possibility
of controlling yellow fever, malarial fever
and typhoid fever, so that there la good
ground to hope that In tho future armies
need not be decimated by disease.
The plans and organization of the
strictly medical service of nrmics, which
cares for the sick and wounded, nta
seldom discussed. The public In general
Is content to dismiss the subject with
some general statement to the effect that
sick and wounded soldiers, especially in
war, should have every c,omfort which
money can buy: that nothing' is too good
for those citizens who risk their liven In
Tho sentiment which prompts such a
statement is most commendable; the
manner in which It is put In practice may
welt be most thoughtfully considered, in
order that in case of war there may bo
Intelligent co-operation between the medi
cal department of the army and tho
great body of the people who are anxious
to render assistance. There must be a
complete and definite understanding as
t,o whut Is to be accomplished, the means
available for Its accomplishment, and the
limitations under which the work must
bo conducted. The latter consideration Is
of prime importance, for It must be con
stantly borne In mind that the medical
service Is at best but a minor accessory
to a great machine, the purpose of which
Is to win battles.
The most elementary ttudy of the sub
ject suffices to 3how us that any army
tthljh attempted to maintain with its
truops at the front a medical service suf
ficient to render immediate aid to all the
wounded In a great battle would be sub
merged by the personnel and equipment
required. Aggressive action would be a
physical Impossibility. Our greatest mili
tary authorities tell us and history con
firms tho statement that victory Is won
by tho army which has learned to cam
paign with a minimum of baggage, which
can move rapidly, and concentrate its
strength quickly on tho enemy's weak
point and deliver tho decisive blow before
the enemy vhas an opportunity to reln
foice thn vulnerable spot. The army
which is rendered cumbersome by the
abundance of its supplies and which dis
sipates its energies in guarding its wagon
trains is an easy prey for a mobilo
"Tho old hunter can be identified by the
meagrcness of his knit. IIo has learned
by cxperienco how few articles are worth
tlilr weight and the room the tequire
in the Held.
Volunteer soldlets, individually and col
lectively as armies, are particularly prono
to burden themselves with equipment of
till kinds, most of which they later dis
card as worthless Impediments.
TARGETS SELDOM VISIBLE
IN HEAVY GUN FIRING
Artillerists Guided by Scientific In
struments, Which Calculate
How cannon ate used In nn actual bat
tle Is a most Interesting subject concern
ing which little Information has been
available, and a description pubtlsticd In
tho special war number of the Scientific
American Is particularly timely In en
abling tho descriptions of engagements
between tho various European fortes to
be biitter understood, as will be npprc
elated from the following extracts: ,
In actual battle the guns ot a bnttcry
am lined up nnd one loaded caisson Is
placed next to each gun. Tho entire bat
tery is behind cover, und generally can
not see the targets. The lire Is directed
by each gunner aiming on n designated
aiming point, with an Instrument el at
a given deflection, so that me gun win
actually point at the target. This de
flection is calculated by a trlangula
tlon method by the battery commander
who Is located some distance away from
tho battery either on elevated ground,
on a ladder, or In a tree. The German
system of obtaining tho deflection Is to
measure tho angles carefully, by means
of Instruments, thereby attempting to
make the first shots effective: while the
tendency of tho French system Is to es
timate the first deflection, fire quickly,
and by observing the shot, make neces
sary corrections for succeeding shot?.
The ranges are obtained by self-contained
base rango-flnders. which are ac
curate within 3X yards for G00O or C$
Within tho last few years tho subject
of equipping the field artillery with larger
calibre blego guns nnd howitzers lus been
glvm extended studies.
Tho object or howitzers Is mainly to
fire n heavier piojcctllo with a lower
velocity at a much higher elevation nnd
longer range. Assume, for Instance, the
enemy's Infantry entrenched behind em
bankments. With a high velocity tho
trajectory of tho projectile for a .given
range Is Very flat, ho that the tioops would
bo able to sit behind the cover and have
all projectiles cither strike the embank
ment or pass over their heads. For this
emergency a battery of howitzers la
called Into action. IJy reducing the charge
the projectile may be started at a higher
elevation, which causes the projectile to
fall to the ground In a much more nearly
vortical path, nnd enables It to be dropped
back of the embankment. As a concrete
example, assume the enemy's Infantry
behind earthen cover nt :;000 yards. The
slope of fall or the French projectile ut
that range would be about 7 degieos, or
1 on S; thl gives a considerable space
behind a wall that would be practically
Immune from the artillery fire.
By calling a 1.7-lnch howitzer battery
for this work, the artillery commander
may flro a expound projectile with Oft)
feet per second muzzle velocity, which
would give him at ."000 yards a slope of
fall Ion i.o or he may remote some
powder from the charge and lire tlie pro
jectile at CiO feet per second muzzle
velocity, which would give him a slope
ui imi hi v, arris ot I on l.S, with which
It would be practically Impossible for the
enemy to remain behind the cover.
Another object of these heavy cannon Is.
that a batt,.-ry can bo put In position to
3wcep a largo Held, and with its long
ranges prevent the enemy's lighter artil
lery from coming within effective reach.
Tho velocity or these howitzers Is prac
tically the same Tor all countries, and ts
about DM feet per second for the longct
zones, whilw the calibers aro approxi
mately 3.8-lneh with u 30-pouud proleetlle,
4."-lnch with a 60-pound projoctile. and ij
iuch with a 120-pound projectile.
