TO TUB BDXTOttSir* —I read yesterday of further treacherv on the part of two German citizens in England. These two are, no doubt ardent patriots, who, while enjoying all the privileges of British rule and protection, consider “that the end justifies the means, hence their utter disregard of tho awful possible cost to others. Wo women of .Dunedin *would do well to wake up to the awful menace that such actions, if repeated by patriotic Germans in our midst, are to us. We read of the fiendish treatment by the German officers and men of the Bplginm women and children, and while « shudder with horror and most sincerely deplore these awful happenings, do we for cuio moment pause to consider that we also run tho risk of such barbarities being practised upon our own carefully-guarded children? Bombardment, wo are told, is practicable at a great distance out to sea, but bombs are not by any means our greatest menace, • In our comparatively undefended state the landing of the etmmy would not bo a difficult matter, especially if informed of all our movements up to date from the shore. Their guns would probably devastate our cities, killing many of our men f but death from firearms is far more to be courted than the sequel—namely, the landing of the enemy’s forces, followed by the mutilation and violation of our voting daughters. At this crisis we are not justified in being weakly generous. Charity begins at borne, and “he who hesitates is lost.”—T am, etc.. A British Motitf.h. November 21.
