ADMIRAL CALLAGHAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
ADMIRAL CALLAGjAN. The appointment of Admiral Callaghan as Commander-in-Chief of the Nore deposes an officer well-known in Australia-Sir Richard Poore. Up till recently Admiral Callaghan was in command of the main fleet until relieved by Admiral Jellicoe, and he must be in possession of full details concerning that fleet and its re quirements. The change has placed Admiral Callaghan in charge of the nearest, and hardest Worked, port, and one that contains the most isp-to-date eqclipment for dealing with any de fects in the Navy. The appointment is as op portune as it is appropriate. In naval. circles the position of Commander-in-Chief of the Nore is recognised as a snug one, and it is only lit tinp that after bringing the main fleet up to con cert pitch Admiral Callaghan should he given a little respite. Under existing conditions, how ever, the position is doubtless less comfortable than it usually is.
BREAKFAST BEFORE FIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
BREAKFAST BEFORE FIGHTING. The leisurely manner In which Admiral Stur dee's Squadron engaged the Germans is exempli f ed by the fact that the men were allowed to reakfast before going into action-another in stance of the old belief that a man fights best on a full stomach. But the real object lesson in this action is that it shows that the fleet or squadron superior in speed holds the whip hand, and can choose its own fighting time. Superiority "of speed is also of more advantage when in the vicinity of the land, because it allows a clever Commander-in-Chief to manoeuvre for best fight ing position. Admiral Jellicoe's version of the en gagement also discloses the deliberate way in which the action was fought-by simply drop ping shells slowly into the enemy whilst hover .ung just outside his extreme range. To the men themselves it must have seemed ludicrous going to the canteen for their 2oz of cheese (a "bar of music," as they call it)) and eating it at lei sure, with the Germans in...
Notes on the Naval Side of the War ENEMY'S COMPOSITION AT SCARBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
Notes on the Naval Side of the War * By "R.N.R." ENEMY'S COMPOSITION AT SCAR BOROUGH. Conflicting reports reach us as to the nature and strength ot the German raiding ships, but we may accept Mr. Churchill's statement as being the most reliable, because he would re ceive reports from the destroyer flotillas of the number and class of ships sighted by them oYf the four towns. Thu weather conditions pre vailing at the time seem to be a doubtful pmnl, too. One report stated that there was a heavv fog, and another a heavy mist, Mr. Churchill utates that no material damage was done to our ships by German gunnery. Poor shots as we believe the Germans to he, it is inconceiv able that at very short range they could not make at least fair shooting, so that after a care uil analysis of all the facts made known we must assume that the weather was in all proba bility hazy. In that case escape would be easy enohgh, oecause had there been a thick mist steaming at full speed would have been a most...
LIEUT-COMMANDER ARTHUR L. SNAGGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
LIEUT.-COIMMANDER ARTHUR L. SNAGGE. Though perhaps not generally known to Aus tr'lians, one of the British monitors bombard .fng that portion of the Belgian coast in posses sion of the Germans has been commanded by an ?ficer--Liet.-Commald er Snagge-who was stationed on H.M.S. Powerful while that ves sel was on the Australian station. His*work as secondary control officer on the Powerful wruld fit him admirably for the command he holds now." In bombarning, fire control is per haps more necessary than in a naval action itself. The reason lies iti the fact that the fall of shot cannot be so easily detected by the gunlayer, who has to rely more on his own re connoitring arrangements and controlling off
The Revelations of a German Officer's Diary [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
The Revelations of a German Officers Diary ___ ---- - The following extracts from the diary foundI an a 'dead German officer and published in the "Times" covers the period trom August 0, when the writer was "sear Gony" (Belgium), to September 25.

"MY LITTLE COMRADE" TOUCHING MESSAGE TO WOUNDED SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
"MY LITTLE COMRADE" TOUCHING MESSAGE TO WOUNDED SOLDIER. A touching letter addressed to a young wounded soldier of the French cyclists' corps by his colonel has been published in the "Echo" de Paris." The young cyclist, who is in hospital at Vin cennes, had sent a letter to the colonel inquir ing: "Is the chief satisfied with his soldier lad ?" The officer replied:- "I was happy to hear boom you, my little comrade. Thanks for having thought of writ ing to me, "You want to know if I am satisfied with you. Indeed I am, and much more than that, And I am glad to see that your heart remains in the right place, as you appear to think ol nothing but of joining us again. "But don't let your generosity run away with your prudence. Get cured first of all, and take an opportunity, if possible, to go and kiss your parents. "I may as well tell you now that I was greatly affected when I saw you being carried away on a stretcher. I had seen you coming among us full of health and vigor. "Then, too,...

"I AM BREODON; AND YET I AM NOT. FOR THOUGH I AM ALIVE, YET AM I DEAD. The main street of the bush towonship pre eented a very cheerful appearance for Christmas -Eoe night. Th· miscellaneous members of the community sought the refreshing atmosphere of the numerous bars, and in large quantities of vile beer And viler spirits beguiled the evening aours. Still these people bad labored through eut the long year in the broiling sun, in the ritiless rain, and, after such a year of toll no one -could be nour enough to grudge them a ;titlo relaxation on this evening, even though it took the form of beer and tobacco, and dis course of an unitlellectuol nature.

THREE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
THREE MEN. "Henceforth our sea affairs -will Ie to great extent in the hands of three men," says the London "Telegraph." "They are in the right place at the right time--which is the secret of nutional strategy. Mr. Churchill is- a man ct affairs who makes up for what he lacks in ex perience-for he is only 40 years old-ky his administrative courage and his prescience. Lord Fi.her is a sailor statesman. He was mainly instrumental in creating the fleet which is 'the sure shield of Britain and the Empire.' Ad? miral Sir John Jellicoe, the Admiralissimo of the Grand Fleet, may. without disrespect, be de scribed as one of Lord Fisher's pupils. He was comparatively unknown until the then First Sea Lord brought him to the Admiralty as the Director of Naval Ordnance nine years ago, afterwards securing for him a seat at the Board." "We are engaged in a life-and-death struggla with a Power more formidable and more un. scrupulous than any that has menaced our ins tiolate shores since English hi...
Books that You may Read A RICH IRISH FANTASY BY STEPHENS PRIME MINISTER'S SPEECHES AN EXCELLENT ALL-ROUND STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
_ Books that You may Read A RIChI IRISH FANTASY BY STEPHENS PRIME MINISTER'S SPEECHES AN EXCELLENT ALL-ROUND STORY. Perhaps the best way to classify the work of Mr. James Stephens is to grant that he should be judgedby no other stanaard than that which he has set for himself. In subject matter he is not unique, for there are to be found a good round dozen writers who seek the same source for their inspiration with varying degrees as success. But in his literary manner this author is certainly unique--at any rate, amongst con temporary writers. Herein lies at once his success and his failure. As a man writing for a deliberately diminished circle of readers, Mr. Stephens attains a success that is difficult to estimate. As a man writing for the public at large, he fails-to a degree that leads one to the caonclusion that the possibility of a large, vulgar audiesice has never crossed his mental vision. Nothing remains, therefore, hut to rate his work according to what one may consider to...
WHOLESOME AND MYSTERIOUS [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
WHOLESOME AND MYSTERIOUS The. difficult art of writing for the young is r.p altogether lost whilst we still have authors or the calibre of E. Everett Green. "The House on the Cliff" is a book that will be remembered by those who are fortunate enough to read it now, in the years to come, when they revive memories of the days when all the world was young. The story is one that will appeal indeed to readers of all ages. The children are lifelike to a degree, as are their1 parents and other relations. There is the * necessary element of mystery, which is handled in such fashion as to not unduly terrify, and yet be convincing enough to make the back of one's neck tingle. The plot is wholesome without being unnecessarily forced. Taken all round, it makes an ideal present from. almost any one person to any other. The publishers are Ward Lock and Co., and our copy comes direct. ,

CAUSES OF THE WAR AND ITS MESSAGE TO BRITAIN MR. ASQUITH ELOQUENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
CAUSES OF THE WAR AND ITS MESSAGE TO BRITAIN MR. ASQUITH ELOQUENT. The cabled accounts of the various recruit ing speeches of the Prime Minister, Mr. As suith, have only 'hetted the appetite for the time when their full text would be made known to us through the medium of the English niails. It is something to be thankful for that they have been collected in pamphlet forIn, and so rescued from the fate that might otherwise have befallen them. There is always a certain amount of risk in depending upon the reports of speeches of the English daily Press, as con siderations of space and the color of political opinicn have their effects to a degree not to be appreciated by us at this distance from the Mother of Parliaments. A great measure of praise is therefore due to Methuen and Co., Ltd., for their interprise in connectirng and publishing at the nominal price of threepence these stirring speeches that have already done noble work in securing aid for Lord Kitchcnr's various arm:.es.

A Day with the Russian General Staff [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
A Day with the Russian General Staf Th-e::'i.'Th e following descriptive despatch is :. from the pen of a London "Times" Special ::- iCorrmpondent now with'the Russian Ar n o" "mies. The writer, who has since traverse-? ,;,.. the Galician battlefield and the scene of the titanic struggle in Poland, gives a prclimi . nary sketch of the personalities and activi t ":.'ies of the Generslissimo and his Staff, by whom he was received before beginning his visits to the battlefield. There is a:o romance abou: modern war. The :" plcturesque features which formerly were so dear to the heart of the journalist are rapidly disappearing. The headquarters of a great: army during important actions is supposed to be a place alive with galloping aides and vi hbrant with excitement. One likes to picture the commanding General haggard arid worn, leaning over his map-strewn table, while muddy adies within and panting horses without await his bidding to the roar of cannon and the crackle of .musketry.

The Principles that Govern Battles at Sea [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
PThhe Pincplesfle that Govern attls at~ Sea * By Colonel H. Foster, IRE., Director of Nilitary Studies, Sydney University S.The principles of strategy universally agreed on, and discussed in a previous article, are identical for alt modes of war, whether waged on sea or on land. The reason for this is • 1 obvious when it is realised that correct strategy nmeans simply the best direction of armed force ;. no. as to produce the greatest effect possible - under'the conditions ruling the movements of theforces and their methods'of fighting. In looking at the history of the wars in which the British Navy has been so continu - ously engaged during the past three centuries, we see that the operations have nearly always heeh directed by good strategy. Its principles were- constantly at work in the way in which the fleets have been concentrated for action against the main portion of the enemy's navy, neglecting subordinate enterprises and postpon '" ing action in subsidiary theatres of opera...
