Strife between naturalised German anid British-Australian stevedores has proved a prominent feature of the war period in Port Melbourne during the past week. The trouble, in which it is under stood the Association's executive has not been concerned, seems to have originated through utterances made by the naturalised Germans(; who, in .tead of showing loyalty to the coun (ry of their adoption, have taken every opportunity to belittle the Eung lish and their Allies on the battle field, and boast of German superiority and victory. No Britishers will stand that attitude, especially in their own country. The result has been fight ing, and the complete rout of the naturalised Germins from their :rAinks. It can fairly be said that the treatment meted out to the Germans has not been of that nature which characterises the British race, that calmer minds would have brought about the same results without inflict ing pain an...
