REVIEW OF THE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 22 August 1914
REVIEW OF THE SITUATION. A capahle prcss writer sumontarises the position thus;:-It is as ttusafe to speculate as to the chances of war as it is of law. It n ay be recalled that, in the Frauco 'russiant war of 1870, a French leader boasted .that the French army was ready down to the last button on the last garter, Yet tho Flretncl were ignominiously beaten by the then ris, ing Prussian liary. "On paper,' however, it' would appear that Great Britain must beat Germany. In her first-chiss fleet she far out strips Germany in the number of her super-Dreadnoughts in their tonnage, armour, andl guns. If by any chance ier First Fleet were repel'ed she has anI enorim. ously strong Second Fleet, against which (cermany has notiing to oppose, In addi tion to that, France is the next strongest naval Power, and France is the ally of England, With Italy remaining neutral and there seems far more chance of her ranging herself on the side of England and France than oni the side of Germany and Austri...

ANTI-PATRIOTISM. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 22 August 1914
A N'PI-PA'l'i IOTIS M. To the E:ditor, of the ".d\'vertiser." Su;-, At the greatest crisis that has ever taken place on this planet, there has been an outburst of patriotism on the part of lrit ishers of all cla;sss, colors, climnes, creeds anld lo Clr.eds that has been as spontaneous as it is genuinc, as evidenced by the throw ing to the owinds the shibboleths that is the cau:;se of s;o Imuch strife and ill-feeling be. twccn the many sections of people that make up tli fabric of lthe Blitish nation. It is re served for \\Wifiianmstown to raise a discord ant note in thelic idst of such supreme manifcotations: of loyalty to the Empire by announcintg an Oranl;ge demonstration in one of our churches to morrow. It is regrettable that the autlorities of a church have lent their chlurch for such an inappropriate pur pose. It is to lie hoped that loyal citizens will discountenance the service by keeping away and show that strife is not wanted at this utncture,--Yours, SQUARIE H-EAD,
