We were not surprised to hear that the

First Sea Lord at the " The Enemy Admiralty, Princo Loui, Within the of Battonberg, is being Gates." called upon to pass through the humiliating and bitter ordeal of having his loyalty to the country of his adoption, rind to the service he has faithfully served for &hj years, questioned presumably by anonymous newspaper correspondent!!. Prince Louis is a seaman of exceptional ability, or he would not be where ho is to-day. He became n British naval cadet at the. ;u;o of 14, he : s a. grandson of Quern Victori">, and the husband of a granddaughter of that same beloved Englishwoman nnd ruler. But Prince Louis was born in Austria, and his father was «a German; there, fore let him be "anathema," and "to the "lions •n'iih this Batten berg; we have no "place for him!" All of which appear* to us to be- very sad, very illogical, but not altogether unnatural. It these denounces and accusers of the, Fiist Lord would only pause to think, they might just us well suspscfc the loyalty of His Majesty King George V. The Sovereign of tlii, Empire, for the maintenance and continuance of which wo are now at

death-grips with the. Hum of modern Europe, is of direct. German descent. His own grandfather, "Albert the Good." was of German birth and education, and his predecessors on tinEnglish throne were German of the German. Oei.-ge I. and George 11., of pious memory, as all readers of Thackeray will admit, w;re more German than English. They openly avowed their preference foiGermany; lived there as often as they decently could; and one (if them lit not both) could never speak u word of English till the day of his death. As a matter of fa-t. if it nines to hunting hmv.iless and iiioflemice people, and it the nation is going to lower its dignity and to make itself a. laughing-flock and sn object of derision, we .Migrm't that no ah commence to hunt eneh other. For, be it remembered, we are all in '.he same boat; we arc row and have been im these 200 years under the rule of the House of Hanover, and the family r.amo of our own Royal Family i. Guehih. Wlnt then? And shall a. man be pilloried for that? Evidently he should be. If lie are to be logical, if I' Louis of Battonberg is to he held up to public odium, and if the ot mm is Id bt, pomU 1 at him becau eoO nc u i noni of a German ttthu md an I-n o hsh ruothu and Austria m the p n l ot hi I ith Is every rub Ui wu t loq v ]iti ' ought to bo dtnjuucim, oh r hti u 1 though this, a I ithd omo tin e served, would bt ih 1 1 \\ h_\o ui ■* somewhere that tae a\(iuge( rmaiiiiair gets angry etctpt when hj i tl' i funny story.

Thero is a certain t.-In-t-. oi pei>'>u wim to work hu warlike tttding.s olf noon tlitt unfortunate ali-n within oar gates. Of coarse, all necessary measures nuit be taken for the security of the country and for Iho proper carrying cut of military nceciri, but k't u> always have thiii fueling in our .hoarts: that ittifiv the war is over people shall not only admire oar victory, but they shall fay" "they fought like gentlemen.'' The 'Romans iiad a motto " Paivere subjectis tit de'o-ellare .siiperbos " ("Sparo trie conquored and l«?at down th« proud "). I-et. that bo the. spirit in which we conduct this war. Let all thn?e who to-d under tho horrii»e provocation of t'a> strugg).\ their hearts suffused with angur and wrath, turn it into a practical channd—going to the front, or, ii c.ircu'ngtances prevent thfini, helpint; others to go. keeping them maintained in tho highest etate of diicioncy, giving ihcni and weapons which they and after tho&c they" have I-'t't be hind. Wo have been eont'ronttd with an exhibition of atud of outrage enforc-cd upon the weak, upon women and children; wo have bee.n_ confronted with repeated breaches ot tho Jawj of honorable warfare, with practices analogous to those which in private life are regarded aa cheating, and whieh deprive tn« peisons and tho country adopting them of tho credit, and respect duo. t;-/honorable soldieic. hd\o bren confronted with ail thctw. Let us vj>i imitate them. Let us not try to make .similar retaliations and reprisals here and there, and cast away the f.rcafcures not only of civilisation, but. o? military honor. Our second reason for directing attention to this .phase of popular wrojiff-hv.acledncs.3 it, that there are not wanting tdgns, we regret to notice, of a similar ebullition of feeling in oar own midst. There arc- citizens uf Dunedin who, owintj to their lk-rman descent or connection with btitdness houses that a-re said (quite inaccurately in some, instances) to "be baaed on German capital, liavo had to submit to personal indignity arod have been threatened with locs of business. Suc-b. conduct it> a disgrace to that patriotism in whoso rtams it is committed. The qaeeMon of trade witit the enemy is fav removed from and not to bo dewTmined by outbursts of this na.ture. Our duty at this crisis in oar Imperial history is in all otrr relations, at home as well aa in the field, to quit ourselves like men who are worthy oi *be heritage that is oure.

The Legislative Council have excised from the Education Bill three clauses inserted in the Lower House, on tho motion of tho member for Wairau (Mr M'CallumL authorising school committees to grunt'ho uso of schoolrooms for religious instruction, belli before, and after school hours.

Dr Newlands is recommended for apDointment as acting surgeon at the Hospital during the absence of Dr O'Neill. News has been received in Auckland of tho death at Frampton, England, of the Rev. Wvndham Allan Chaplin, vicar of Falucld/nnd formerly of Ellerslie, Auckland. The deceased was accidentally drowned in the canal at Frampton early in September. Ho was cycling beside the iowinc path, and shortly afterwards his hat and pipe were found floating in the n-ater. Later the body was recovered The deceased was subject to epilepsy, and at the inquest a verdict was returned to the effect that, he had had a seizure, and death was duo to accidental drowning. The lalo Mr I'haplin was in charge of the Ellerslie parish for about Vi months, and left on his return to the Old Country last February. While nt Ellerslie he was very popular'amongst all sections of the people. Speaking of the improvements which have been carried out on the Southern Oval of late years, the Chairman (Mr A. Martin) at the meeting of the Otago Cricket Association last night mentioned that the City Council had some time ago allocated a certain portion of the reserve as a. cricket ground. He thought it would be as well to have some definite information as to location of this portion, so that the association would be in tiie position to take action when the time arrived. "So Jong as the public wem allowed to form tracks by walking over anv part of the Oval," said Mr Martin, " there would never be a cricket ground there." It, was resolved to ask the. council for the information desired.

The Hospital Board's architects have submitted a sketch block plan suggesting how the Secondary Hospital can be built on the property owned by the board without requiring additional ground. T'hev hnvo al=o submitted a plan prepared in 1912 in reject to the erection of th.-. building, assuming that additional property is bought by tho"board. The plans have been referred to the honorary medical staff for a report. The new Women's Ward is now ready to be haifded over to the Hospital Board. Arrangements are at present in hand for the furnishing of the ward. Turkey alone among the nations issues to Per 'soldiers no formal identification badge.
