The Akaroa Mail. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1915. JOURNALISM AND THE WAR.
+ Sir W. P. Bylea's remar ka in ibfl House of Commons asking for more information are very uncalli id for. It is a well known fact that id the South African war the enemy learnt too
much from our newspapers, and when our leaders bave determined not to fall into the same error, men like Bir W. Bylee raise their hands in protest. It would appear that Sir W. Byles has been a notorious Little Englander, and has decried expenditure on the army and navy. At such a time as thisi the country wants to have confidence in its leaders, and surely Lord Kitchener and General French have earned the county's trust. Sir W. Bylos';* protest ia an inconsiderate one, and bis. iemarks ro tho journalists' acconnts of tho 'war very uncalled for Men like him would perhaps prefer tbe journalism of Germany, which alleges to give full details. There is no doubt that the leaders are letting us know as much as they think wise, and every true Briton should satisfied with what has been done.
