.ALLIES TO INDUCE TRAVELLERS
NOT TO GO BY WAY OF
Paris, Dec. 8.-Two new transport-
ation routes across Europe have been
proposed in order to break the mon-
oply which Germany and Austria-
Hungary have established of the traf-
fic'between Western Europe and Russ-
ia. Until 1914, travellers from Lon-
don, Paris, Geneva and Milan, if
bound for Petrograd, were obliged to
go either by way of Berlin of Vienna.
The two new routes now under con-
sideration are intended to enable trav-
ellers to cross the continent of Eu-
rope without passing through Ger-
man or Austro-Hungarian capitals.
What is called the "northern route"
is projected to connect London with
Petrograd by way of Sweden; through
trains to be ferried from Newcastle
across the North sea to Gothenburg,
to proceed over Swedish rails to the
neighborhood of Stockholm, to be fer-
ried again across the Gulf of Bothnia
connecting with - Finland lines that
would make Petrograd accesssible.,
Propose Southern Route
The proposed "southern rout-
would follow as nearly as possible
the forty-fifth degree of latitude.
Starting from Bordeaux, the line
would make a circuit around the
mountainous region of central France
to reach Lyons, whence it would take
a south-easterly direction, passing
through a new tunnel under the Alps
to reach Milan. Venice, Trieste,
Agram, Belgrade, Bucharest and Od-
essa would be the other principal sta-
tions on this route.-
These routes, their advocates argue,
would be important factors in the fu-
ture economic struggle. .
Prepare for Business Invasion
Stories reach Paris of the trai-
ing in Germany of thousands of
clerks, interpreters and commercial
representatives for the commercial
invasions of Russia. One hundred
thousand Russian prisoners of war, it
is said, are also being initiated in
German business and industrial meth-
ods, while at the same time learning
the language. This organization with
a view to competiion for Russian
business, added to the natural advan-
tage of proximity that the. Germans
enjoy, is presented as another argu-
ment why Western. Europe can no
longer allow them to monoplize the
When the southern and northern
routes are completed; the gap of 500
miles between the Russian and Anglo-
Indian rails may be filled and then
with the tunnel under the English
channel completed, one would be able
to take the train at London and go
through by rail to Bombay and Cal-
cutta. Engineers are now studying
,another route from Irkutsk on the1
trans-Siberian route to Canton across
the whole of China.
Aerial Mail Service
Important mail matter soon may be
carried in much shorter time. The
central empires are understood to be
working toward the establishment of
regular aerial communication with
the Allies, and the same subject has
been under discussion in France and
England. It is considered here as
certain that letters soon will be car-
ried through the air. Enterprising
newspapers may also adopt this meth-
od for the rapid transportation of late
