The Horror in the Burning of Termonde [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
The orror in the 0-urnm g of T ron e From the pen of Edwprd P. Bell, an Ameri can newspaper correspordent, comes the fol lowing account of the burnh g of Tcrmonde : "At 4 o'clock in the afternoon my courier left Brussels by bieycle. He reached Ter monde, which he knew as a flourishing town with fine shops anad do ancient town hall of singular beauty, and a number of churches of Shistorical interest. Ho found the place a '$ smouldering ruin except for the town hall and one church, on a stone of which-he saw en graved "131L!' These two structures were In Stact, without so much as a broken.window. "The spectacle filled me with amaxcment "2 and horror,'" said the courier. "As I ap proached, the site of the.town; from which no Ssmoke was rising, as the place had been' re duced to embers, I saw no sign of life-not even a chicken or a.dog. I entered, the main street, but was unable to ride my bicycle, as the pavementi and roadways were chokedl with debris. Falling walls had thrust stoves, ...
A World's Scorn for the Arch-Assassin [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
AWorid's Scorn for te 'Arch-Assassin "How magnificently God supported Wilhelm." This is one 'of the most recent blasphemies atl tered by thdf Kiser- Others cand. worse- there are without number. With the events of the past few weeks in one's mind this odious linking of the names of the world's greatest murderer and the Deity makes for a feeling that balres c~sresion. Still, it has not bren allowed to pass by without protest. Under the title "The Kaiser -and God,"- Barry Pain contributed to the pages of the London "Times." a bitter com mentary uponhthe moral turpitude of the arch assassin. ollowing are the first and last verses: "Led by Wilhelm, as you. tell, God has done extremely well;. You with patronising nod - Show that you approve of God. Kaiser, face a question new SThis--does God approve of you ? -. "Impions'braggart.you forget ; SGod.is notyour conscript yet;.

SUBMARINE TRANSPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
SUBMARINE TRANSPORT. The report that the Germans are busy at Elbing and Hamburg building huge submarines for tranport service should be accepted with caution. as the facilities afforded by all known submarine craft p .to the present are against suth ships being e".'ployed in transport duties. In the-irst place, their speed is such that the oldest cruiser afloat could overtake tnem, ansi. | naturally, when once .observed, their chances of landing troops On a hostile shore would be I very omaill indeed; It should also be remem bered that in transport work to an enenty's co?ntry, it would be impossibl- to enter har bes and go alongside wharvs to discharge me?4L as they would be garrisoned (unless, of coursd- our. fleet allowed" their above-water ships to get in and bombard, and enable these submarines. to disarge their living cargoes). At the point of disembarkation, too, boats would bhe necessary to carry the troops to land, and even should these submarines carry colap sible boats, th...
THE MINE PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
THE MINR PERIL. All Ici ds of suggestions have been put before the British Admiralty for dealing with the dan ger of floating mines. When all has been said and done, however, it must be quite certain that the Admiralty have considered the matter in all its aspects. They must know better than anyone else how far the mine peril can be arerted or prevenfed, and that they will take whatever steps are practicable to protect ships and sanien from these deadly machine goes without saying. In the "Times" of September 8, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sugested "some sort of steel trident or fork which could be pro-' jccted into the water in front of the bows of a vessel to explode a contact mine.before' the prow actually touched it" But it does not necessarily happen that a vessel strikes a mine Lws on. Indeed, in the majority of cases, it would seem that the mine may be bumped two Cr three times by the hull of the-veosel before the detonator is struck, and the chances are that not until the vessel ...
RAMMING METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
RAMMING METHODS. How the-German submarine managed to escape bbinkgn after being rammed by the Bad ger. It is dilficult to istmerstand. According-to report, the submarine, was struck by the dam aged destroyer's bows while the vessel was going at full speed, in which case the subma riine would be forced to come to the surface a? least for a time, until the hole could bo plugged-a process that would have left her exposed to gun ire. Whether the Badger toole too much for granted, and allowed her' to wcapt while caryoing out an eamination of the damage done to herself, it is hard to "say. but at all events the submarine is reoorted to have returned. Although this is the first case of ramming that we have heard of, it ws'i certaonly not be the last. Hot only will this' method be employed by destroyers against sub marines, but also by the larger class of ships against each other, should a favorable oppor tunity present itself for the operation, such as during a fog, or, as a last resource ...
WAITING! [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
WAITING ! - Idany people seem to think that every man in our Navy is being -ept constantly strained during this period ot waiting-; probably this as - the case withl our cruisers and small craft But if one could only see our battle fleet, there would be little to indicate that these big ship were really at war. Except for befing cleared for action-an operation that does set materi ally alter the later type of ship-their appear ance would be much the same as in time of peace. During the period of strained relation- - lship between Great Britain and Russia over the Dogger Banu incident, our Channel Flee, tnder Lord Charl-s Beresford, lay at Gibra!tar, teady to intercept the Russian fleet AU the' tinle the Admiral's. cruiter were out scouting, - while his battle fleet lay in harbor, to all ap psarances unconcerned. At the same time evo lutions were carried out, ships went outside to do their egunlayers' tests, and boat work went oc just the same. The only indications of pos sible war w...
