TO TJIK EDITOR. Sir,—ln the 'Star' of 22nd inst. there appeared what you rightly describe as a magnificent poem with the above title, by Mr Henry Chappell, railway porter at Bath, England. As I happen to know of at least one diligent reader of the ' Star' who at any rate had not taken any particular notice of the poem, it occurred to me that there might be others who have not been enthralled by the perusal of the marvellous lines, in which the writer expresses in indignant, yet not overstrained, language his righteous anger against the . head of the German nation as author 4 of i " the greatest crime in history " —the un- | provoked invasion of little Belgium. To | see what this invasion has meant one "need j only note the horrible atrocities detailed j in the article 'Gruesome German Doings in to-night's ' Star,' from the pen of an Otago lady at present in London. I feel that the thanks of the community are due to you, sir, for the timely publication of this powerful invective, and to draw special attention to it is the object of my j writing, ilav the Kaiser himself see it!— I am. ftc. W. K. M'Auam. Ajidersou Buj£, Octobex - 24. j
