GERMANY IN THE PACIFIC.
A NAVAL BASE WANTED. BRITISH CRUISER ON GUARD. NEW YORK, March 14. A Canton telegram to the "New York Herald" states that it is believed that Germany intends to annex an island in the Pacific and transfer her naval base there.
The supposition is strengthened by the fact that the commandant of the German squadron at Canton shipped aboard a German steamer a quantity of food supplies, guns, ammunition and material for the erection of barracks for a destination unknown. ~-\ The British cruiser Flora has been ordered to watch the vessel.
