' LONDON. Nov. K.-PrcmUr Aiiilth
stated In the House of Commons
today the British government bail decided
to declare tlu whole uX the Nortli eVa
to be In the mtlttary area.
All subjects of the m'mf found on neu
tral vessels, the-prime minister alio said,
would be liable to detention as prls-irer

copper would be declared .-untraiMiid ot
ReferrliiH to mines, the premier said
the tiermuns had resorted to Indioi i iml
nate mine laying In the North nea with
out regard to peaceful plilrpinR, nnd
without warnlnx. The run-pose clearly
wa the furtherance of no definite mili
tary operations, but to rndanrter lirltlslr
trader. These mines mifpiestiunably hud
been laid by fishing vessels illsftulHed as
neutrals, the premier paid. Thene mines
were not co ronstrui ti d ns to become
harmless when loused from their moor
ings, neither were thev kept under Ob
nervation. No steps htd been taken to
warn peaceful Khlpplnfc of this danger.
fonse(iientiy the terms of The Tl.uruo
convention of 1S")7 have been violated.
Forced to Act.
After a number of neutral tithing in 1
merchant vessels and many lives i ;
been destroyed by theso (lerman mines.
Till: Asquith said, the government 'Mil
been forced to adopt eounter measures
to cope with this German poll' y of nine
laying combined with submarine activi
ties. "A mine field was therefore laid across
the southern portion of the North sea."
said Premier Asquith. "in such a way
as to guard tho approaches to the Eng
lish channel. Due warning was given In
accordance with The Hague conventions.
In the last week of October the Hermans
succeeded In laying a mine field off tho
north coast of Ireland, on the main
trado route from America to Liverpool,
via the north of Ireland. More peaceful
merchant ships were blown up and moro
lives were lost.
"These mines could not have been laid
hy .my Clerman ship of war or by any
'vessel flying tho German flag. They
could only hac been laid by some mer.
chant- vessel under a neutral flag, whl li
must havo coruo along the trade route is
if for tho purpose of peaceful conimc rrc.
Meoaeo is tirejit.
"The . menace to peaceful shipping
presented by these wholly Illegal meth
ods of,w;aBln5 war Is no groat that tho
government, has been compelled to adopt
trie only possible means of protection,
namely, to declare the whole North Sea
a nlllltary area und to restrict ull chip
ping' crossing it to a narrow passage
lpng which the atrieteft supervision can
bo exercised. Access to the coasts of
Ureat Britain and neutral countries Ina
thus been made as safe us It Is in tho
power of the British navy to make It.
'Ilia majesty's government is fully
Bwai'C of the unxlety prevailing In the
. I'rH ti-ttK and other neutral coun
tries on these subjects, but it trusts that
jt4 policy will lie fuliy understood. It la
confident that, public opinion in neutral
nun tries will appreciate its earnest de
sire that there be no Interference wl'h
neutral trade. Any Interference hy the
British navy is solely to prevent goods
frornVeachlng tho enemy which would
increase his power In the war against the
British and allied forces."
