100 years ago

German atrocities reported

100 years ago: THE English newspapers are full of accounts of wicked and wanton barbarities perpetrated by the German army in Belgium, and refugees from Germany tell us that the German newspapers provide counter-charges of the same kind against the Belgians

Death of Pope Pius

100 years ago:  HASTENED by the cataclysm which has fallen upon the European world, the death of the Pope has come as a shock to those whose thoughts have been absorbed by the news from the area of war

England an armed camp

100 years ago: FOR little more than a week we have been in a state of war, yet within that short space we seem to have lived a whole life-time. Sudden as a bolt from the blue there has fallen on us the necessity wholly to re-order our lives in unaccustomed ways. 

Menace of a ‘great war’

ALL Europe, at the moment, stands face to face with the menace of a great and devastating war

Daughters of Levi

100 years ago: In these days of sentimental bishops and eccentric deans, we seem to be without any security against the most extreme revolutionary changes, and we could welcome the reappearance of Wesley, to discourse upon his former text, with one verbal alteration: "Ye take too much upon you, ye daughters of Levi."

Joseph Chamberlain dies

100 years ago: SOME years ago the career of Joseph Chamberlain came to a tragic end, and last week his life was brought to a close.

Archduke assassinated

100 years ago: Throughout the civilized world the tragic news of this double assassination sent a thrill of horror, which was immediately followed by a passionate feeling of pity for the aged Emperor-King in this his crowning sorrow. It is too early to speculate on the effect this tragedy may have upon the politics of Europe. 

Adulterous picture-plays

100 years ago: We learn that a large number of cinematograph plays has been imported from America, having for their object the visual portrayal of the miseries resulting from ill-assorted unions, and the happiness attained through the relief afforded by the Divorce Court.

Prince’s promising start

100 years ago: IT IS very delightful and, we should hope, of happy augury that the first public function performed by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales [the future Duke of Windsor, after his abdication as King Edward VIII] was the stone-laying of a new church on his own demesne at Kennington.

Appeal for Welsh Church

100 years ago: IN THE appeal they have made on behalf of the Welsh Church, their Graces, the two Primates, express their conviction that the principles for which Churchmen have been contending are bound up with the religious life and welfare of the land
