DISCUSSION AT COBUtRG COUN CIL. £50 VOTED. At the last meeting of the Coburg Council a letter was received from the Mayor suggesting that £25 be voted towards the fund. Cr Anderson moved that the sugges tion be complied with, as it would help others and the object was most coinm mendable. Cr Campbell: I would like to see the amount increased. Cr. McAlpine seconded the resolu tion and added it was a wise step. Other municipalities were doing the same thing. They could only act co cording to the funds at their disposal, which were not too bright. It would give some help. even a small sum, and would be showing practical sympathy with a worthy movement as the men going to the front would have to put un with hardships.

ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL. ARCHBISHOP CLARKE ON THE WAR. An impressive national service was held at St. Paul's Cathedral on Sun day morning. There were special play ers and hymns invoking the Divine protection to the Empire's troops, and an everlasting peace. Archbishop Clarke, during a lengthy discourse, stated: A week ago they were trem bling in the fear of possible war; to day one of the greatest wars of history was upon the world, and all nations were aghast at its possibilities. The scene of conflict was far away at the present, and may it never come to our shores. A few brief days taught them what war meant. The sudden stagna tion of trade, the fear of possible cdis tress of the nations, had caused men's hearts to tremble with fear. This, how ever, was as nothing in comparison to the mental anguish of the present moment in England, France, Russia and Germany. Some simple duties lay before them. There were in Australia a number of persons of German origin. They came here long ago, a...

LIBERAL WORKERS' INSTITUTE. CHIEF SECRETARY ON SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
LIBERAL W-ORLKER.S' INSTITUTE. CHIEF SECRETARY ON SACRI FICE. At a patriotic remonstration arrang ed by the Liberal Workers' Institute held at the Athenaeum Hall on Mon day the Chief Secretary (Mr. Murray) said that, in the circumstances of the present international crisis, true pa triotism was the highest feeling exhi bited by any individual - not merely lip loyalty, but the patriotism that was prepared to make any sacrifice for the Empire's needs. No nation had ever entered on any great struggle with hands cleaner thani Great Britain had in this world-wide turmoil. But she had not decided to come into the struggle until her counsels, her pray ers, her entreaties for peace had heen disregarded. A more solemn duty. a heavier obligation, a 'higher responsi bility was never placed on any nation than that Great. Britain should stand by her allies, no matter what the cost. (Applause.) Had she not done so, men would have been ashamed to say that. they were Britishers. The outcome of the ...

THE LORD MAYOR. (ALDERMAN D. V. HENNESSY) TAKES A LEADING PART. Money is pouring in to the above fund and some large amounts have been received. Never before in con temporary history has the spirit of the British people been appealed to as it is now. The feeling is so strong that ebullition of expression or behavior is instinctively avoided.

We cannot all be in the firing line, but iWe can do the equivalent; and Alderman D. V. Hennessy, the Lord Mayor, has point ed the way by starting a Patriotic Fund. To begin with, tihe City Coun cil proposed to vote £1000. A pro posal by Cr. R. Allen to make it £2000 was met by the remark from the Lord Mayvor that if necessity arose tihe mat ter could be safely left to the council. It can be safely left to the whole Com monwealth. The solidarity of the Em p...

Re Mr. Willmot's Correction. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 21 August 1914
Re Mr. Willmot's Correction. 0---- To the Editor. Sir,-In your issue of 14th inst. nap pears a correction signed by T. C. Will mot. I cannot see where such correc tion was niceded, as the repprt in your issue of the 7th inst. only stated that Mr Fenton, the Labor candidate, was introduced. Then followed: He was to fleliver a lecture. The further reading of the report deals with some of the figures quoted. No mention at all was made in reference to it being a poli tical meeting, and readers wourld thor oughly understand that the reporter had no thought of conveying such a meaning. It was absurdly unnecessary that I should approach any official of the society as I was acquainted with all the facts and gave an- honest and straightforward report. Thanking you in anticipation,-Yours, etc., EPHRAIM MOSS. P.S.--Any complaint o me would have at once received attention. E.M.
