ENGLAND AND GERMANY.
Berlin, February 15
Admiral Breusing, lecturing on the strategy of an Anglo.German naval war, asserted that the Br.itish assembly at present favours a close blockade, the primary object being to safeguard England from starvation. England, the admiral said, had only sufficient corn for a month, and must keep the se8 j open, which would be difficult to accompMsh. German submarines and torpedo boats based upon Heligoland could frustrate the laying of mines, while fast cruisers could break the North Sea blockade, and acting with Ger. niany's allies in tho Mediterranean, menace Entdand's imports. The future of the Ger. man people rested entirely upon the navy. Twenty years hence Germany would be un : able to feed her people on her own produce , and would be compelled to import. If she had not an adequate navy she would become England's vaasel. Her. place was neither before or behind England, but at her side.
