The Akaroa Mail FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 1915. THE ZEPPELIN RAID.

« ■ I The Zeppelin raid on Yarmouth, Saeiiiigham, and Sandringham reveal.s the de3ire on the part of tbe German." to indict an injury on anything British, ane) generally to strike terror into tbo hearts of non-combatants, The sen sation of the unfortunate people ot Yarmouth can hardly be estimated by us, as the sight of airships dropping powerful bombs must be terrifying. The raid was well planned, taking place at 8.30 p.m., when most of the people werfl in their homes, or at places of amusement. No material good can come to the Germans by killing a few harmless people and destroying buildings. The idea is apparently not only on 9 to strike ■ terror into the British people, but to hearten up the German people by talk of a grand Zeppelin raid, We; believe that such a raid as tbat on' Tuesday night will only cause * 4 larger number of men to enlist to t

avenge the outrage oh non comba fcanfcs. There is no doubt tbat a de liberate attempt was made to drop a bomb on Rimdringbam to iDJure tbe King, The King had left for London some hours earlier, but tbe attempt waa Done tbe less a deliberate one. Sir Cecil Hertslefc, who was in Antwerp at the time of tbe siege, says that no one who has not experienced it can imagine how terrifying it i 8 to see a Zeppelin dropping bombs. There is no doubt tbe outrage will be avenged in full, but nothing can make up to those bereaved ones in Yarmouth who have lost their people by the work of the Zeppelin bombs.
