The Advertiser. SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 22 August 1914

SATUMluAY, Avoutn 22, 1914. Time Municipal elections to be held on Thursday show that the Council has survived the calumny that it can do nothing. It can, at all events, throw the stagnationists on the Vigi lance committee into a state of fever lest it may do something. Perhaps the ordinary soberminded citizen will not think there it any occasion for a scare. With Europe in arms and historic cities either bombarding or being bombarded, our puny Town Hall troubles appear weak mid miser. able to the sane ratepayer. I3ut the Vigilance committee is not disposed to take any chances. It has selected certain candidates and while it is wil ling to allow.the them to be on all other questions '' the mildest mannered men that ever cut a throat," on the Town Hall question their attitude must be for war, unrelenting war, In order to be a true and valiant Knight of the stagnation party it is necessary for each of thi candidates to pledge himself to vote against the Town Hall, That is the one ques...

I'A.\TRIOTISM. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." Si,-Ju.t now the whole British Empire is stirred w\ith feelings of immense patriotism -and rightly so. An appeal has been made through the various churches for the ladies of the town to gather in certain school halls for the purpos, of unitedly presenting to the tEmnpire a love gift fromn the town, and it should be expescted that such an appeal woutld meet with undivided support. It is, however, being rsaid that one of the chiurhes of this tuown has decided to go on its own in this matter. If this Is so it is to be hoped that thie pre islent andt secretary of the ap. peal to the patrioti:nl of the women of \Vil liamsto\wn will see to it that no section will .be supported in this noblhe undertaking un less it displays a loyalty to the endeavor of the to\wn its a whole. -Yours, etc., LOYAL TO TO\VN AND EMPIIRE,

It is not yet ioo late to correct the position.

CAPTAIN STRICKLAND'S IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 22 August 1914

THE LOTHRINGE SEIZURE. CAPTAIN STRICKLAND'S IMPRES- SIONS. THERE was a good deal of suspense over the seizure of the Lothringen. Captain Kohler was on his first voyage to this port and readily handed his vessel over to the pilotage charge of Captain Strickland. " What are you doing ?' he asked in perfect English, as he saw the vessel slowing down off Portsea, in the early hours of the morning. "The Harbor is blocked," was the diplomatic answer of the pilot, The German still seemed unable to understand. " What does this mean ?" he asked when he saw the sabres of armed men coming alongside. " The boat's crew will be on board directly," was the answer. But that was just what the boat's crew did not do. It fumbled and blundered and only got on board after the fourth try. Then there was another awkward pause. Captain Richardson was not about and it was his duty to announce that Britain and Germany were at war. " What is the matter ?" again asked Captain Kohler as Naval officers step- ped...

" There are European complications. Germany is at war" "With France ? With France ?"' broke in the captain with manifestations of de- light. " We'll cat them, pilot. We'll eat them"   " She's at war with England too," added the pilot, " My God ! my God ! are they mad ?" groaned the captain, completely dejected, " Ah ! pilot why did you bring me into port ?"

Dr. Maclean had ap proved ot it. Cr McNeilage said the building was a fine one and Miss O'Neill was to be complimented on her enterprise, Crs Treganowan and Gravell ex pressed satisfaction with the plans. Cr Byrne moved and Cr Heriot seconded that the matter stand over. Cr McNeilage was surprised at the objection of Crs H-eriot and Byrne. Miss O'Neill had conducted hospitals here in a most satisfactory manner. The Mayor-Hospitals were to be found in S,.Kilda and in the City of Melbourne, The Board of Health had yet to be consulted, Cr Gravell considered an institution of this kind was badly needed and Miss O'Neill ought to be thanked Cr Treganowan did not think the Council should invite objection.
