IS IT JINGOISM?
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Can the Mayor explain why the German flag is fhing to-day, under the Union Jack, over the Town Hall buildings. If it was the one that was lowered at Samoa by the members of our Expeditionary Force I think the proper place to exhibit it is in our Museum or in some shop window. To fly it in the position it is being flown to-day is a piece of jingoism unworthy of British sentiments of fair play, and is quite out of touch with the quiet dignity which characterises tho actions of our King and the leaders of our people in the present struggle.—l am, etc.. Citizen. December 14.
