Mr. Asquith asserted that the
British government's confidence
as to the results of the operations
at the Dardanelles was undiminished. He emphasized his confidence in the victory of both the
j French and British armies engaged in the western field.
Referring to the fact that next
■ week would see the completion of
a yeat; of war.   Mr.  Asquith  re-
[markfed that the world never had
.seen   a  more  miraculous transformation in this country,   not in
its spirit and   heart,   but  in   the
outward manifestations of its life,
than  had   taken  place   here in
these twelve months.
"The British fleet today is  far
stronger than at the beginning
of the war," he continued,  "audi
to its quiet and unobserved,   but
ubiquitous and all-powerful  acti-i
vity is due the fact that the seas|
are clear, or substantially  clear.
"For. after all." he said, "this

has appeared to be, is not going|
to indict fatal or  substantial  ii -
