A THREE YEARS' WAR. New York, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 7 December 1914

A THREE YEARS' WAR. New York, Friday. Mr. Irvine Cobb. a well known writer, states that be recently interviewed Lord Kitchener. The latter considered it would probably require three years tol[defeat Germany, but we are pre pared and determined to cortinue to fight until ictory is won. The war will only end when Germany is defeat ed on land and pea. The German cam paign in the west is already a failure, which. must become more pronounced as time proses. When an invading army ceases go invade it merely wastes its strength, especially when, like the 'Germans, it has passed from the maxi mum strergth of. efficiency. Lord Kitchener added, "A soldier who judges the behaviour of the civil Fopu lation, and also. inflicts .punisbmert, ceases to be a soldier and becomes an executioner."

WAR OF EXHAUSTION. London, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 7 December 1914

WAR OF EXHAUSTION. London, Friday. An rye witness reviewing the month's operations by the British in F.anders declares that they: form one of the most g'orious chapters in our history. The dogged' pluck if the troops and individual ac's of gallan'try and devo. tion repeatedly saved critical situations. Though the situation has been relieved there is no reason for assuming that tile enemy has abaridaned his intention of forcing his way to thesea. The same task lies before the British armny of mlaintaioing a share in the struggle until a nation in arms comes on sup port. The Germans are no unworthy foes, and will continue their attack with courage, little abated by fai'ure. The prospect of ultimate defeat has not dawned on them, and will not unnil the Allies have made further great efforts and sacritices. The war is one. of ex haustion, and final success depends upon the manner in which the be!li fierents haue prepared their manhood to replace the regflar armies when the lattlr have d...
