(Received 7th August, 2 p.m.)

LONDON, Glli August. ' Admiral yon Scheer'a comments on the Battle.of Jutland have aroused much discussion. Commander Bcllairu, M.P., declares that Lord Jellicoe represented the Admiralty mind, in aiming at avoiding the danger of lons of ships. "The old Nclsonian touch had gone. 1 forecasted in 1900 that in the event of a big naval engagement our fleet would turn away, resulting in an inconclusive battle. Unfortunately, Admiral Bcally, who did not conform to the 'safety-a't-all-costs' school, commanded the v/eaker unit at Jutland, or the Germans would liavo been decisively engaged and probably dcslmyei.. If Beatly had commanded at Jutland, tho war would have been shortened by two years. There would have b«en no Russian revolution, and no submarine menace. Doubtless, it would have cost a few ships, but this was a small price to avoid the agonies and hardships of the last two years of the war."

Admiral Sir William Grant, on the contrary, is of opinion that the circumstances of the engagement and every-' thing that has since lieen made known thoroughly justified Admiral Jellicoe. It must be Temembered that the Germans had always been most anxious to discredit Admiral Jellicoe.
