A SIGNIFICANT WARNING.

The London ‘Timm’ of September A i or,taiomJ ,'>n interesting summary of " Geru.au aims" from the pea of iff,'’able military correspondent. Thr.< ■ aims were j:ii t what, was to ho expected from the character of the German War Lords. Hero aro some extracts full of suggi.stivencss : After subduing Franco, crushing her. ami seizing hor colonies—after reducing gallant Belgium in the position, of Alsace and Lorraine -Holland is to lie invited to enter the. Gonnanie Confederation (on the same terms as Hamburg), and then, when all the Channel eons are in Prussian hands, Briiain is lo be invaded and subdued. It is a dream worthy of a Heliogabalus. . . . Hut retribution is coming, and aiming swiftly. As Colonal Repington (’The Times's ‘ ndlitary correspondent) finely .-■ays) : Whatever befalls on the West, we (i.e., the Allies) and Russia arc going on, if need be for 20 years, because wo do not propose to he Germanised and trodden niidrr ihc Prussian heel.

The ' Dagblaad,' of Christiania, publishes, over the signature of Christian Aars. a striking article on the war, in the course of which the writer says :--“The cause, of the Allies is that of the democracies. and is therefore that of peace. All the leaders of democracy—Floyd George, Vandevelde. Viviani, Poincare—are on the same side, and the same breath is penetrating; to Russia, which in Poland has just acted for Hie good of Europe. England is the champion of small nations. If the Emperor triumph Europe will in no wise be delivered from the fear of war or the fever of armaments. If. on the oiher hand, it is the -Allies who gain the victory, the era of tre-atic.s will be inaugurated. We shall see the formation of the United .States of Europe, with peace for their object and an international force as its guarantee." GERMANS AND “ALL-UES.” German papers just arrived in London make, curious reading. The Germans are being fold that, the British working classes are walking up and down the main streets of the cities shouting ‘‘Down with war!” A Hamburg journal declares Britain dare not remain another day in India. Another statement is that Canada and Australia, are about to realise the dream of years, and throw off the British yoke. The offers of military help from the Dominions are represented as the outcome of official British pressure through the Duke of Connaught and'cither Governors.

DUNEDIN WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION. The work at the Early Settlers’ Hall is going on steadily. As a result of the “Baby Day” appeal, five large cases of baby clothes are packed ready to go away, a most satisfactory result.' Donations of hand-knitted socks. Balaclavas, and woven cholera belts for the reinforcements have been sent in, but many more are needed and will be gratefully received. The committee of the association are arranging to provide afternoon tea for visiters on three of the days of the forthcoming Art Society’s exhibition in the Art Gallery. Half the gross proceeds of the sale of tickets in connection with the exhibition are to be handed to the Lady Liverpool Fund. Several donations in money and goods have been received for the Lady Liverpool, and British and Belgian" funds. Owing to pressure on our space we are unable to publish the names of the donors or details of the gifts. A GRIM CAME OF CRICKET. The military correspondent of thn London ■ Times,’ in his account of the war on August 31, save : ” Tin •re is a great difference between the task's of the Allies in the western and eastern theatres of war. In the western our task is stonewalling ; that of the Russians is ste,unrolling.. The situation in the west ia such that only an extraordinary stroke of good fortune could give us a smashing victory and enable us to annihilate the foe. it is'our business to keep our wicket while Russia makes the rims. We must fight back if need be to the Atlantic ropes without allowing ourselves to be knocked out. Germany must have an aggressive victory to win, and it must be our endeavor to foil her in that oDject. The Russians have a most brilliant role in this war.' Russia must reach I’crliu within a couple of months. If at the end of that time our claws are still fast in the German armies in the west, and if Servia still has her teeth in Austria’s hack, then the strategic and political object of the war will be achieved.'’

PORT CHALMERS COMMITTEE. The Port Chalmers Ladies’ Britain and Belgium Relief Committee despatched 17 cases of clothing to the steamer Pakcha to-day for the war waifs, fit addition to these, there were two cases for the Red Cross. The list of those who contributed by money and material in the filling of the, cases is too formidable to permit of publication, but thi? Ladies’ Committee tender to them their indebtedness. They 7 were also indebted to the Town Clerk (.Mr Fraser) fur assistance; for kindly supplying afternoon tea, to Airs Schnack, Airs King, Airs Campbell, Airs Jacobson. Mrs Woolsey.

It was staled by a Glasgow business man to a representative of the Glasgow ‘ Herald ’ that the American Chamber of Commerce and 'I fade in Berlin he'd a- meeting in conjunction with the principal citizens, at which the Ainei ican Ambassador was present, and that at that meeting a resolution of sympathy with the Germans was passed. 1 1,,, sue. of 60,000 marks was voted to the German Red Gross fund.
